Dating does he really like you
Listening shows that he’s interested in what you have to say; not just waiting for your turn to talk. Tell him you’re interested and let things progress from there.
How much he listens is a pretty good indication of how interested he is.
Take this as a definite good sign – especially if he starts recommending things to you.
It doesn’t matter if its something you’ve heard of. He’s trying to find common ground – not something many people will do with people they just consider friends.
If the object of your affection drops a compliment about your eyes or your hair, you’ll definitely notice.
He might notice the little subtle differences in your mood – when you’re happy instead of just okay or when you’re feeling a little under the weather.
If he’s out somewhere and sees a little something that makes him think of you and he actually picks it up for you and offers it as a random gift, you probably have an admirer.
If he does this for all of his friends, he’s probably just a generous kind of guy.
If he’s calling to discuss problems all the time, you’re just a friend, but if he just wants to talk about what you’re up to and what he’s up to without asking anything of you or getting into a phone therapy session, he’s probably into you.
If someone is harassing you, threatening you, or beating you around, your friends are going to be upset no matter what.
He might be seeking you out for a whole other reason.
