5 Things A Man Says When He’s Serious About You
Have you been dating someone but are unsure of whether or not he is serious about you? Are you ready to commit to him and wondering if he feels the same way?
If you’ve been listening intently to what your man says, trying to decipher whether or not he’s serious about you, start paying attention to conversations. If he’s serious about you, he might mention having a future together, getting married, meeting his family, how many children he wants, his career goals, where he wants to live, and his health, among other things. He also may say one of these five things a man says when he’s serious about you:
1. “Jeff and I are going bowling at 7 tomorrow.”
Someone who is serious about you is transparent. He is never going to be evasive or vague and will always give you straight answers. Similarly, his story will always check out. If he says he is going bowling, he will be at the bowling alley exactly when he’s told you he’ll be there. If your guy is straight with you, it means that you can trust him-he won’t be out with other girls or in places you don’t approve of.
2. “My older brother wants to go on a double date. Do you want to go?”
If your boyfriend is trying to introduce you to his family or friends, he thinks that you are important. You are more than just a casual fling to him, he can envision you in his future.
Similarly, think about whether he’s someone that you could trust around your own family. I once dated a man who didn’t quite understand my family’s dynamic. We had been dating for two months and he wanted to come home for the weekend with me to my parent’s house. No matter how much I explained my parent’s religious viewpoint to him, he didn’t seem to care. I went home by myself, and we broke up shortly afterward because I realized that he wasn’t someone that I wanted my parents to meet. He didn’t care enough about my family to be someone I wanted to share a future with. If your boyfriend wants you to meet his family, he has faith in your relationship and values your personality.

3. “Do you want to start running with me on the weekends?”
If your boyfriend says something like this, then he wants to share his interests with you. He isn’t compartmentalizing his life, but allowing you to take part in his interests and hobbies.
The person that I am currently seeing (we have now been together for one happy and successful year) asked me this shortly after we started seeing each other every day. At the time, I hated exercising and fought him because I didn’t want to run. Now, months later, we run together sometimes and he comes to the gym with me other times. We’ve compromised and become a healthy couple. If your boyfriend wants to include you in his life, regardless of the interest, be open to trying the things that he likes-it might even improve your relationship.
4. “Want to get dinner and eat in my office?”
If your boyfriend asks you to eat with him in his office because he has to work all weekend, he’s trying to find time to meet you- regardless of his hectic lifestyle. If he makes time to meet and spend time with you when he’s busy, then he’s serious about you. He cares to make time to see you because you are more important to him than anything else that he needs to do. If your man continually comes up with excuses for not being able to meet with you and can’t find the time for you, he may not be serious about your relationship.
If the man that you are seeing mentions any of these things, he may be beginning to have serious thoughts about your relationship. He’s considering having a future together and is trying to incorporate you into his current lifestyle.
