11 Signs Your Guy Friend Wants To Be Your Boyfriend
It's all very Betty and Archie rn, just in reverse...
Guys are confusing, we all know that. It’s basically the first thing you learn in life. But the most complicated of all relationships with dudes is when your male friends likes you and you don’t like him back.
But it’s not always clear cut whether they're into you or not so let these signs assist you as to whether it's time start writing the speech that will keep them firmly in the friend zone.
Check out 5SOS spilling their Harry Styles-based style secrets below...
1. He texts you at 3am
No guy texts any girl at 3am if they don’t want something more than friendship to happen. What do they want to talk about? The subtle nuances of that film you guys saw last month? Nah, mate.
2. He doesn’t really talk about the other people he likes
When you ask about people he’s been seeing or people he likes, he gets super cagey or blasé about relationships.
3. He wants to hang out alone all the time
Haven’t you ever noticed that your other guy friends normally arrange a group hang? FISHY.
4. He texts you more than a few times a week
We all know boys are worse than your grandma at the texting so if he’s hitting you up every day with emojis and memes – he in loooove.
5. Your friends all think he likes you
There’s no smoke without fire babes, and if his mates or your mates all make jokes that he likes you then he probably does tbh. They’ve got more of an outside perspective than you so listen to them.
6. He makes jokes about you being a couple
If he’s ever called you his ‘wifey’ or ‘soulmate’ or joked that you guys would make a great pairing, then it’s pretty much staring you in the face.
Guys aren’t that keen on giving people the wrong impression – unless they're monsters – because then you have to have an awkward chat. And everyone knows how much guys like chats, which is to say not. at. all.
7. He never seems that into the people he dates
If he likes you as more than a friend then he may try and downplay these other relationships as more casual than they are or not want to label anything. Sound familiar?
8. He insults the dudes that you like
He is always finding reasons that these guys aren’t good enough for you and puts them down in a big way.
9. He’s tried to make a move on you when he’s been drunk
DING DING DING. Listen, we get that guys can think with their penises a lot of the time, but most dudes won’t cross that line with someone they consider a true friend. So either they aren’t that much of a mate or they’re into you in a more serious way.
10. His other halves never seem to be that keen on you
That’s if you even get to meet them that is. If he’s keen on you romantically then he won’t want you seeing him with other people. And as nice as you are to his partners, if they think their boyfriend likes you they are going to be wary.
11. He gives you compliments
Even if you're mates with Buddy the Elf, no guy that isn’t that interested in you will not shower you in compliments. It just won’t occur to them. Dum-dums.
