Girls can be complicated creatures: we play it cool and keep our guards up. It can be difficult to know if we are really into you or not, especially when dating. So guys… this one is for you. How do you know if a girl wants to commit to you?
Understanding a girl’s body language is crucial throughout a relationship, particularly in determining whether it’s the right time to progress to the next step. Talking helps too, but often it is body language that gets you to the point where you maybe ready for that conversation.
These are some subtle and not-so-subtle body language signs that can tell you if the girl you are dating is ready to commit to you.
#1 The ‘Dreamy’ Eyes
The way two people look at each other when cuddling and making cutesy noises while rubbing their noses together.
A girl will give you the dreamy eyes only after she has fallen for you. When you started dating she would keep her guard up. This is a sign she has dropped her guard and let you in. You are now her Prince Charming. If you get the dreamy eyes it’s safe to start thinking about getting serious.
#2 She Wants To Help You
When a woman is trying to express her love for you but it’s too early to say the words, she will often show you instead. So if she is buying you gifts or doing things to help you out like cooking and cleaning, it is a non-verbal way of signalling her commitment to you.
#3 Sighs of Happiness
When you are lying in someone’s arms and it just feels right, you are at peace and content with the world. It’s very common for people to let out deep sighs as they lift the weight of the world off their shoulders and relax.
If she is fidgety and uncomfortable when lying in your arms then she isn’t thinking about getting serious. But if you hear those deep sighs of contentment it’s a good sign.
#4 She Wants To Be Close To You
When she always wants to be close to you, holding hands, cuddling, stroking your arms or hair it’s a sign that she is serious.
Girls do this when they are flirting but if they keep it up after a few months it means they are very interested. If she is just keeping you around for a fling she will have sex with you but she will avoid all the other cutesy stuff. If she gives you the cute stuff then she intends to keep you around.
A girl who wants things to be more serious will use any opportunity to be close to you. This is especially the case if you aren’t actually doing anything together. You might be studying on the sofa and she will want to sit right next to you. It might be annoying at times but this desire to be close is a clear sign of affection.
#5 She Gets Nervous And Flustered
Nervous and flustered behaviour is normal on the first few dates while you are getting to know each other. But normally it subsides as you get more comfortable being around each other. However when a girl starts thinking about making the relationship more serious she can start behaving jittery again. If you see an unexpected bout of nervous or strange behaviour after you have been seeing a girl for a while it could be a sign that she has started thinking about a future with you.
#6 She Asks Lots Of ‘Serious’ Questions
Getting to know someone takes a long time and a lot of conversations. If this is a short-term arrangement for her she won’t bother with the deep probing questions. She won’t be that interested.
Yet if she is considering a serious relationship with you she will want to get to know you better. Questions about your family, your values and your future plans show that she is thinking about whether you would be suitable as a long-term partner.
So if you are thinking about whether the girl you’re seeing or dating is wanting more, or on the same page as you, have a think about the way she acts around you – it could be a good tell-tale sign!
