You’re dating an amazing guy, and you definitely see things moving from casual dating to relationship status. But as much as you feel a connection with him, you can’t help but wonder if he’s serious about you…
Is he looking for a commitment or is he just having fun..?
Sometimes (okay, a lot of times) men can be hard to read, especially when it comes to dating. You might not want to bring up the “What are we?” question or the “Where do you see this relationship going?” conversation in fear of putting any unwanted pressure on your new guy.
Never fear. If you’re wondering if your new man wants a relationship with you, here are some of the top signs that can help to clue you in that he’s also interested in something more with you.
5 Clear Signs He Wants a Relationship With You
He Knows You as a Person — Not Just as a Body
Does your guy know your favorite meal? Does he know what you like to do in your spare time? If so, then according to relationship expert Adam LoDolce’s YouTube video, that’s a pretty surefire sign he wants a serious relationship with you.
LoDolce explains that no matter how hot the chemistry might be between you, if he doesn’t know what you do for a living or your best friend’s name, then he doesn’t want to further along with the relationship. But if he’s trying to learn more about you and asking you meaningful questions on a regular basis, then he’s serious about cementing things.

He Wants to See You All the Time
Okay, maybe not all the time, but if your man is consistently making plans to see you and creating space in his schedule to spend time with you then he wants a relationship with you. Important: spending time together doesn’t mean just having sex.
It’s trying new activities together, having fun, and growing and exploring your connection together. If your guy is regularly seeing you and making that connection work to the best of his ability, then he wants more with you. A man who wants a relationship will want to see you as much as he can.
He Plans Ahead
A man who wants a relationship with you is thinking about the future with you. That means he’s talking about taking a vacation with you next summer or asking if you want to see that cool concert series in a few months. He might even go one step further and buy the tickets.
A man who wants to be serious is serious about seeing you in his future, and won’t be afraid to say it. A man who only wants to be casual with you won’t talk about anything other than the here and now (if that).
He Introduces You to His Friends and Family
Another sign that your new guy is serious about you is that he’s excited for you to meet his friends and family. A man who only wants a casual thing will do anything he can to avoid you introducing you to his inner circle. A man who wants more with you? He can’t wait to show you off to everyone he knows.
So if your man is asking you to attend family dinners and is psyched for you to join him and his buddies for Sunday football viewings, then you can be sure that he definitely wants a relationship with you.

He Says (or Infers) Exclusivity
If a guy wants a relationship with you, then he’s going to want to be exclusive with you. That way he knows that there isn’t a chance of another man swooping in and sweeping you off his feet. If a man wants exclusivity with you, according to relationship expert Mathew Boggs, he’ll either directly say it to you or he might infer it.
For example, he might ask you if you’re still using dating apps. If you tell him yes, then a man who wants to be with you and only you, won’t like it. A man who isn’t serious about you might shrug it off. Bogs says that might be a good opportunity to ask the question, “Does this mean you want to be exclusive with me?” If a man doesn’t want to be exclusive with you, he will let you know. If he does, he will.
Men are sometimes hard to read but when a man is truly into you and wants a relationship with you, then he will definitely give you clear and consistent signs that he’s serious. Quite simply, a man who is genuinely interested in you will act like it. Your guy might not demonstrate all of the above signs, but if he’s doing most of them, then chances are pretty great that he wants to change your status from “single” to “in a relationship.”
