12 Signs You Almost Missed That He’s Interested In Being More Than Just A Friend

1. He looks for you inside of crowded rooms. When you hang out in a group, he always migrates toward you. Directs his comments toward you. Faces his torso toward you. It doesn’t matter how many people are around, because you two always manage to find your way to each other.

2. He touches you in a flirtatious way, not a friendly way. He finds any excuse he can to touch you — and not just for high fives and fist bumps. Whenever he hugs you, he lingers for a little too long. Whenever he sits next to you, he lets your arms or thighs brush, even when he has more than enough room to spread himself out. Whenever he has the choice, he inches into your personal space.

3. He talks shit about your boyfriends. Whenever you talk about a celebrity you find attractive, he makes fun of the guy. Whenever you talk about someone you’re crushing on, he lets you know you can do better. He gets defensive whenever you mention another attractive man, because he considers them his competition.

4. He remembers stupid, little things about you. He knows which brand of beer makes you gag. What shows are currently on your Netflix queue. When you have to wake up for work in the morning. He knows the tiny things that slip your other friends’ minds, because he pays close attention to every word you say.

5. He turns the conversation sexual — but only with you. He only makes dirty jokes with you. He only gives detailed compliments to you. He is clearly attracted to you.

6. He seems extra nervous around you lately. He fidgets. He plays with his hair. He shifts in his seat. His body language is giving his feelings away.

7. He has a tendency to stare. You’ve caught him checking out your ass before. And when he’s not watching you walk away, he’s looking between your eyes and your lips. He’s holding himself back from kissing you, because that’s all he’s been thinking about.

8. He never uses ‘best friend’ terms with you. He never calls you buddy or pal. He never mentions how you’re just like a sister to him either, because he doesn’t want you to see him that way. He wants to be more than just your friend.

9. He looks like fire whenever you’re around. When he knows he’s going to see you, he puts extra energy into his appearance. He wants to impress you. He wants to raise the sexual tension to its highest possible point.

10. He banters back and forth with you. He makes fun of your clothes. Of your music taste. Of your career. Of everything. But in the most innocent way possible. It’s never insulting. It’s playful teasing. It’s flirting.

11. He prefers hanging out with you one-on-one. He would rather invite you over to watch Netflix in his room than hang out in a big group. He doesn’t want other people in his way, stealing your attention. He wants you all to himself.

12. He never mentions any other girls. Even though you talk about your love life all the time, he never mentions a girl he’s interested in, because he’s interested in you.

Dating Fashion Etiquette: Looking Classy is the Key to Acting Classy

Dating fashion etiquette is key to impressing your date, whether it be your first date or 50th date.  For men and women alike, how you look will tell your date how you feel about them.

You have been asked out on a date for a reason. That other person obviously liked something about you enough to want to share more time with you. How you dress will be a reflection of who you are on the inside. Proper grooming is a good start to showing confidence within yourself.

Make an Effort.

First off, show you are happy to be going on a date with this person. Let this person know that you want to be there by making sure your clothing and dress look put-together. Match them. It is not good to show up on a date in a hodge-podge of colors and styles that obviously do not look good together.

Keep it Modest.

This is just plain and simple good dating fashion etiquette.  Dress in a manner that shows you truly care about yourself. Avoid styles that are too revealing and too tight. Clothes that are that modest in cut and style will bring an air of comfort and confidence to the date.

Fresh & Clean.

When you are getting ready, wash and iron your clothes! This is great dating advice for men and women alike. You do not want to be out with your date and they are constantly staring at a stain or a mess of wrinkles on your clothes. You want them to be focused on you not a fashion faux pas.

Less is More.

Keep the accessories simple. The more you put on the more you will have to worry about. Your bling should not be what draws attention to who you are. A simple necklace, earrings, bracelet or ring will do.  Along those lines, do not overpower your date with the scent you have chosen for the evening. Keep it subtle.

Dress For the Type of Date You Will Be Going On.

It is appropriate dating etiquette to ask where you will be going. This way you will know what type of outfit to wear. If the date is to be a surprise, it is still appropriate to ask what you should wear. You don’t want to show up for a date of laser tag wearing a skirt and heals. Dating fashion etiquette and common sense show that formal dates require different clothing style than casual dates.

Dress Comfortably.

But not too comfortable. Showing up to a date dressed like you have given up on life (like George Costanza on Seinfeld) is NOT appropriate. Make sure that you can wear your clothes without constant tugging, adjusting or worrying. It is possible to be classy and comfortable.


Wearing nice looking shoes is vital to impressing your date. Your date will make certain assumptions about you by looking at your shoes. Clean and polished shoes are the best way to show you are a confident, put-together person. It really doesn’t matter if what you are doing on your date calls for tennis shoes, flip-flops or dress shoes…make sure they look nice.

If you feel that you need to purchase a new set of clothes and shoes for an upcoming date, be sure to wear them prior to your date. While your clothes and/or shoes may have looked and felt fabulous in the store, they may not be that fabulous on a date. You want your first date conversations not to be on the subject of blistered feet.

Fashion etiquette is as simple as you make it. Looking classy is about keeping it simple, modest, clean and neat. You will be happier on your date by following this advice. Your date will be happier too, because you took the time to look good.

8 Very Subtle Gestures Proven To Help Get Someone You’re Into In The Mood

When you’re into someone and ready to take things to the next level, you might think about sending some signals. And while more obvious moves like saying straight-out that you want to have sex or turn them on might be, in some ways, simpler and more to the point, there’s something to be said for the very subtle gestures proven to help get someone in the mood. Yes, the chance that these much subtler gestures will be overlooked might be slightly higher than if you go for something more obvious, but the less overt gestures can get the job done just as well.

Being a little bit nervous in a new relationship or if you haven’t been intimate in a while is totally normal and understandable and in these cases in particular, subtle gestures might make you feel more at ease. But even if you’re not shy about your intentions or feel the slightest of butterflies in your stomach, sometimes a subtler gesture feels a little more romantic and like it fits the situation a little bit better than something so obvious and, well, not quite as romantic (if still effective).

“If you want to take your relationship to the next level try to make that clear,” Bethany Ricciardi, a sex educator at TooTimid, tells Romper in an email. “But always remember it is about the gestures you make and how you act that usually end up counting, not just what you say.”

1. Rub Their Back

A gentle, almost absentminded back rub can be both subtle and effective when it comes to getting someone in the mood. “caressing the back is a psychological, as well as a physical turn on,” Jenna Ponaman, CPC, ELI-MP, a relationship coach and expert, tells Romper in an email exchange. “The feeling of a light trace up the spine is instantly tension releasing — in fact it may tickle for some. It’s a teasing signal to the body, leaving it to want more…something more tense, more hands on, waiting to be taken over. The slight caress of the back trigger a primal response, if you will. Being taunted with while at the same time relaxing and moving into that feel good state.”

2. Pay Them Compliments


Compliments maybe aren’t your typical go-to when it comes to the art of seduction (or maybe they are), but they probably should be a part of it. “Let the person you’re into know it,” Ricciardi says. “Share how attracted you are to them; the more attractive they feel the more they’ll want to have sex with you!”


3.Mirror Them

“Mirroring the person’s attitude and energy level, as well as key movements, is a way to draw closer and signal the desire for a connection,” Maryann Karinch, an author or co-author of multiple books on body language, including one on dating, tells Romper in an email exchange. “Mirroring is effective because it’s a nonverbal signal that there is a desire to bond.” If they’re upbeat and you respond in a way that’s also upbeat, they’ll pick up on that.

4. Sit Close To Them

Cuddling up after a long day may or may not lead to anything else, but it definitely can strengthen your bond. “[N]aturally, when you cuddle you release oxytocin, which makes you feel good and feel stress free,” Carla Romo, a dating and relationship coach, tells Romper by email. “If your partner has had a stressful week it can be a great idea to spend time cuddling. When you are less stressed this allows you to be more relaxed to get in the mood with your partner.” So while you might sit close to your partner on the couch just to feel close to them, it can also be an effective way to get them in the mood.


5. Make Eye Contact

If you’re trying to get someone in the mood, where you’re standing and how much attention you’re paying them both make a difference. “make sure you are in the closest intimacy zone, but leave a little space so [they] can observe the sexy signals you will be sending,” Toni Coleman, LCSW, CMC, a licensed psychotherapist and body language expert, tells Romper in an email exchange. Coleman says that making — and maintaining — eye contact can definitely help clue them in to the fact that you’re interested and get them in the mood as well.


6. Don’t Close Yourself Off

When you’re trying to seduce someone or get them in the mood, you might not think that your posture and the way you’re standing matters all that much, but it actually can have a real effect. “If the front of your body is exposed to the other person — that is, arms are not crossed in front of you, you are not angled away from the person, and your legs are even slightly apart — your body language is displayed great trust in the other person,” Karinch says. Standing with a more open posture is subtle, but it just might help.


7. Cup Their Face

“It shows how much they care for and adore you,” Ponaman says. “For a woman, our arousal can be very much tied into our emotional appeal.” That means that showing how much you care for them beyond just your level of physical attraction might help if you’re hoping to get them in the mood.

“This would be an instant turn-on for most,” she adds.

8. Tilt Your Head

Head tilts in and of themselves might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to a gesture designed to turn someone on, but it might be more effective than you think.

“[Gestures like head tilting, eye contact, and more] are effective because they are universal signs of sexual interest that get the person’s focus where you want it and send a signal that would be hard for them to misunderstand or ignore,” Coleman says. “This is sure to help get their pulse revving and their juices flowing.”

Teen Dating Tips: Stay True To You and Have Fun

Teen dating tips are quite useful when you are entering into the dating arena. Being a teenager is a fun and exciting time of life.  It is a time when you are discovering who you are and what you want.

Dating can be a fun and great time for you as a teenager. The first teen dating tip is the most important. It is totally possible to maintain good standards while having a good time. In fact, you will have more fun when you do. The easiest way to do this is look for and date people who have the same high standards as you do. The bad boy or girl may look intriguing, however the fun wears off really quickly.

Manners matter when you are dating, especially as a teenager. Always remember your ‘pleases’ and ‘thank yous’ with the person you are out with. There is nothing more annoying than an ungrateful date. The second teen dating tip is to remember the golden rule: treat others like you want to be treated.

All of this aside, the following are some more great teen dating tips. Hopefully most of these will already be second nature, but if they are not it is a good time to start working on them.

Before The Date

~Asking the Person Out~ When you have found someone who you would like to go out with, practice asking them out (especially if you are nervous). When you have it mastered, just do it. You don’t have to come up with a fancy shmancy way to ask. A simple, “Do you want to go out on Friday?” is totally okay.
HINT: It is NOT good dating etiquette to show up in their driveway, call them on their cell phone and ask them out right then. Parents do not like this.

~Get a Group Together~ It is so much more fun to go out in a group, especially when you are just getting into the dating mix. A bunch of people can come up with so much more to do and talk about. It will also help with the nerves of the date.

~Take a Shower~ Truly… clean up and look nice for the person you have asked out or that has asked you out. Grooming is a good habit anyway, but take it to the next level for your date. Honestly, no one wants to go out with someone who just got done with team practice and smells like it.
HINT: Extra cologne and perfume do not cover up the smell of sweat….

~Know Where You Are Going and What You Are Doing~ This is good teen dating tip manners. You will be able to let the other person know what to expect. Also, they should know what kind of clothing and dress to pick out. Most importantly, when your date’s parents ask what you are doing, you will be able to give them a good answer. Very important.
HINT: Your date’s parents will know when you are not telling the truth…

The Date

~Picking Up Your Date~ Go up to the door to pick up your date.  I don’t care how scared you are to meet your date’s parents… you need to do it! Man up! My father was a very scary man to boys who came to pick me up. Most of them left the house shaking. Yet, the ones who manned up and did it earned not only my respect, but his. The ones who didn’t were quite simply not good enough.
HINT: Honking your horn for your date shows fear and a lack of respect. DON’T DO IT.

~Be Yourself~ The reason why your date said yes to you is because of you. If you pretend to be someone else it will only get harder, especially if you spend more time with that person. Really, trying to be someone other than you is just a big fat lie you have to keep up…how exhausting.
HINT: It is so much more fun being the nerd you really are inside.

~Conversations~ Believe it or not, you will have to talk to your date. It is a good idea to have a list of things in mind that are interesting about that person that you want to know more about. Ask questions and then listen to what they say. Answer questions you are asked. This is good manners.
HINT: Don’t sit and talk about yourself the entire night… boring.

~Put the Electronics Away~ You are out with someone to have fun with, talk to and have adventures. It is impossible to do any of this if your ear buds are in, attached to your text conversation or chatting with your friends on the phone. Unplug for the night.

~Respect Curfew~ Nothing good happens after curfew. Your date’s parents have a very good reason they want their son or daughter home by a certain time. Even if you don’t understand it, respect it. Chances are, if you do, you will be allowed to see your date again.
HINT: Being in the driveway ‘chatting’ in the car is not respecting curfew. Your date needs to be in the house for it to count.

~Respect Yourself~ Unfortunately there are times when your date is not very respectful of who you are and your standards. If this ever occurs, it is important that you remember: IT IS OKAY TO SAY NO AND MEAN IT. Stand up for yourself. Get out of the car. Walk away, get somewhere safe, and call someone. No one is worth giving up who you are inside.

~The Doorstep~  The final teen dating tip comes at the end of the date. Remember curfew? Walk your date to the doorstep. This does not mean that you have to kiss them, it just means that you want to see them safely inside. Let your date know you had a good time (if you really did). Only tell them you are going to call them if it is the truth. Otherwise your date will be agonizing and staring at the phone for the next few days. Give their parents a break and be honest about calling this person.

Hopefully these teen dating tips will give you an idea of what to do when you are out with someone. My mom always used to say to me, “Remember who you are, use your manners and have fun.” She knew what she was talking about. Enjoy!

Dating Advice For Men: Who should pay on a date?

Long held beliefs about the etiquette of dating often mean that men and women think they should behave in certain ways on dates, especially in the initial stages of getting to know someone. Times are changing though, and if you’re bewildered by some of the more old-fashioned dilemmas such as who should pay on a date, read on for some useful dating advice.

Dating stage 1: First date advice

If you want to set the right tone you may want to begin by paying on the first date. This shows that you’re considerate and generous, and can help you make headway with those all important first impressions. Of course, it’s never compulsory to pay on the first date, but it might show that you’re prepared to make the effort with the person you’re dating. You may find that at the end of the evening when you’ve requested the bill, your date may offer to split things 50/50. But think carefully about whether she is simply making a nominal offer and is secretly impressed by your chivalry in picking up the tab.

Dating stage 2: Advice for the second, third and fourth dates

It’s not unusual for both parties to feel embarrassed about bringing up who pays at this early stage, so don’t feel taken aback if it hasn’t come up in conversation. If you’re still striving to impress, and you’re happy to pay on these dates then by all means do so. However, if you’re not comfortable with forking out, sensible dating advice would be to suggest that you pay half each once the first date is out-of-the-way. If things are going well and you are both enjoying each other’s company, you may even find that your date pays for some elements of the date (such as entry tickets to a show or exhibition) whilst you pay for the drinks or food.

Dating stage 3: Fifth dates and afterwards

After the fourth or fifth date, you should be comfortable enough to take it in turns to pay for each date. Don’t worry about being the first to bring it up; she will be flattered that you’re keen to plan for future dates with her. Setting the tone for a happy, well-balanced relationship early on is sound advice for successful dating.

Dating advice: some final words on money matters

Finally, if you’re still not sure about who should pay, here’s some final advice to prevent any potential dating faux-pas:

• In the initial stages of dating, try not to splash the cash too much as you’ll look too eager to impress and might give a false impression of your day-to-day lifestyle and what you can afford. Remember that charm and charisma go a long way and are far more important than the size of your bank balance.

• To avoid awkwardness, choose dates which don’t cost too much until you have an idea of each other’s financial limitations.

• Don’t talk too much about money in the initial dating stages. Our advice is to be subtle about this topic so you don’t come across as money obsessed!

• Remember that most women will be looking for a genuine connection rather than at how much you earn. If money becomes a genuine problem on a date you should think about moving on to greener dating pastures.
