There is a very fine line between being just purely best friends with someone from the opposite sex and being romantically involved with them. A lot of people say that physical attraction is what mostly composes that line, but as a relationship progresses and strengthens, the physical attributes really don’t matter as much anymore. Best friends tend to have incredible chemistry – the kind of chemistry that can be found with couples who are romantically linked. So what’s the difference? It’s essentially up to the both of you to decide whether you’re going to be a couple or not.
Of course, you can’t just assume right away that your best friend is going to be interested in a romantic relationship with you. You should only really consider this as a possibility once he starts exhibiting the signs that will be listed on here. Once you are fairly certain that he wants to be more than just best friends with you, then you have to make a decision here. Do you want to risk the stable relationship that you already have as friends? Or are you fine with where you are because you don’t want to mess anything up?
Well, the decision is ultimately yours and no one can make it for you. However, if you still need a little assurance as to whether he’s romantically interested in you or not, just read on through until the end of this list. Here are some signs that he really sees you as more than just his best friend.
1. He makes jokes with you about getting married.
If he’s making jokes about getting married with you, you really have to consider the possibility that he’s not just joking. He’s just trying to diffuse the pressure of a sensitive topic by adding humor to the equation. But he really wouldn’t be bringing it up unless he has thought about it.
2. He stutters or acts uncharacteristically nervous around you.
If you were just regular old best buds, then there would be no reason for him to act nervous around you at all. He wouldn’t be stuttering like a bumbling idiot with you because you know for a fact that he doesn’t have a speech impediment. But he doesn’t see you as just regular old best buds, does he?
3. He has long and deep conversations with you about anything.
Everyone knows that conversations are what build and maintain relationships. Communication is one aspect of your so-called “friendship” that never seems to run out. You are always willing to talk to each other about absolutely anything, no matter how complex.
