So, things are getting serious between you and that cute girl.
Well, at least you think they are.
You want a serious relationship, and she does too, right?
Yeah, I get it! You don’t want to pour your heart out to her and be met with rejection.
Don’t fret, as there’s a simple way to find out if she wants things between you to get serious.
Keep on scrolling to learn what the 12 top signs are to prove that she wants to be in a serious relationship with you.
If she wants things to get serious between you, then there’s no chance she’s sharing you with anyone else.
It’s also a huge hint at you to quit stalling and prove that you’re also serious about her by doing the same (wave goodbye to Tinder).
I get it; no one wants to feel the sting of rejection but think about it – she’s basically just told you she wants to be exclusive.
So, if you like her, tell her you want to be exclusive too (or at least let her know via some sort of code talk).
Being exclusive means no more dating apps, going on dates with other people, or flirting with that cute girl who works in your local coffee house.
She tells you about her friends
Friends and family are a huge part of our lives; therefore, if she goes into detail with you about them, then this is a clear sign that she wants you to be a part of things.
Being secretive in a relationship can cause all sorts of problems, so if she’s openly telling you the latest news in her friends and family’s lives, then don’t dismiss this.
Hearing about her sister’s latest job and her grandad’s obsession with trains might sound boring, but she loves these people, and she cares enough about you to tell you all about them.
No, this doesn’t mean you have to go and meet them all next week, but it makes sense to pay attention to what she tells you about them, as this shows her that you’re interested in what she has to say.
She’s eager for you to meet her family
I know the score! Meeting your girlfriend’s family for the first time is a terrifying thought.
If she keeps mithering you to go around and meet them soon, then this is a great, big sign that she’s serious about you.
Her family is super important to her; therefore, she wouldn’t bother introducing you to them if she didn’t think you were going to last the distance.
Think about it; no one wants their family to ridicule them for their choice of partner; instead, they want to receive their seal of approval.
So, if she wants to introduce you to them, then this is a good sign that she has high hopes for you guys.
And for you to introduce her to yours
One of the big signs that she wants a serious relationship with you is if she actually asks you to take her around to meet your family.
Meeting a partner’s parents for the first time is scary, but she wants to do this for you.
She knows that they’re important to you; therefore, if she’s serious about you, then she’ll want to get to know them too.
Her stuff is at your place
Look around your place. Has she left her toothbrush, favorite sweater, the current book she’s reading?
If the answer to any of these is yes, then the signs are good.
Our stuff is important to us, so we don’t leave it just anywhere.
She’s leaving her things at your place because she feels comfortable around you.
And because she’s marking her territory.
You’re her guy, and she wants everyone who visits you to know this.
Those little glances
Do you catch her looking at you out of the corner of your eye? and I mean, really looking at you?
When we’re attracted to someone, then it’s natural to want to look at them all the time.
It’s likely she’ll look away or act like she was never looking at you – this is because she’s likely embarrassed and doesn’t want to scare you off.
So, if you catch her glancing over at you, then rest in the knowledge that the signs you’re heading toward the next level in your relationship look positive.
Her body does the talking
Yep, it’s a well-known fact that more-often-than-not female body language tells us more than words ever can.
As much as we like our friends and family, how we act around them is very different from how we act around someone we’re in love with.
Does she lean toward you when you’re talking? When we like someone, then it makes sense that we want to be close to them; therefore, if we think the gap between us is too big, we naturally want to shorten it.
Then there’s hair-twizzling. When it comes to hair flirting techniques, then women know their stuff – their manes are super important to them.
So, if she’s always twirling a strand of her hair around her finger, flicking it, and generally playing with it when she’s around you, then she’s clearly interested in you.
The future is bright
Plans, we all have them.
But if your girlfriend includes you in her future plans, then well, that means she envisages you in it.
If you feel the same, then show interest back, as this shows her that you see her in your future too.
No, you don’t have to plan your wedding day just yet or decide what your kid’s names will be but planning a romantic weekend away and discussing your Christmas plans together shows commitment.
She’s over her ex
Ex’s are a nuisance. Even long after they’ve gone, they have a habit of lingering in our heads.
If she barely mentions him anymore, then this is a good sign that she’s moved on from him.
She isn’t with him anymore; she’s with you.
They broke up or a reason, and she chose to be with you for a reason.
It’s easy to spot if she’s only using you to get at her ex.
Or if she’s with you because she’s over her ex.
If she still messages him, talks about him, accidentally ‘bumps’ into him when she’s with you, and stalks his Facebook page, then the signs aren’t looking good.
But if she’s more focused on you than some guy she used to be with, then it sounds like she wants a serious relationship with you.
She tells you
You can’t get much more obvious than this.
She likes you and wants something serious to happen with you, so she tells you this.
It sounds simple, but that’s because it is simple.
If she really likes you and envisages having a serious relationship with you, then she’ll make you aware of it.
No, chances are she isn’t just kidding. Matters of the heart are not something women tend to joke about openly.
Okay, so putting her feelings out there is scary, but if she feels comfortable around you, then she’ll have no trouble in letting you know that she likes spending time with you.
So, she hasn’t told you how she feels yet? Don’t panic! Chances are she’s just being cautious, as love is a risky business.
Before you tell her you’re after a serious relationship too, you want to make sure that she likes you in the same way.
So, naturally, she also wants to see some signs that you like her as much as she likes you before she tells you how she feels.
Yep, the road to loves at times complicated and risky.
But if she tells you that she likes you and wants things to get serious, then it’s pretty evident that she means what she says.
She never stays mad at you for long
Arguments happen in every relationship.
The truth is that, however much we love someone, there are still times when they drive us crazy.
Every couple argues, but the important part is how you both resolve these squabbles?
If you both seem unable to stay mad at each for long, then this looks promising for your future together.
Let’s face it, living in a war zone is no one’s preferred choice.
No doubt your girlfriend wants to be with someone who doesn’t hold a grudge, sees the funny side in past petty arguments, and who feels at her happiest when you’re by her side.
Silly arguments don’t get in the way of true love.
If your girlfriend buys you that cute good luck charm or surprises you with a homemade chocolate cake, then she clearly likes you.
Think about it. Few people have the time to just waste their time.
So the fact she surprised you with something thoughtful shows that she’s serious about you.
It’s the little things in a relationship that matter the most.
So these thought-felt surprises are one of the clearest signs she wants a serious relationship with you.
