Exploring and learning more about what makes her tick behind closed doors will be one of his top priorities. A romp in the sheets that is over within minutes and leaves you feeling unsatisfied is not a good sign. A guy who is only looking to make himself happy will consider you and afterthought, and after your time is over, he will leave your house and return to prowling the streets for someone new.
When it comes to relationships, opening up to your partner is an important part of bonding and learning more about each other. Most relationships begin to flourish when one or both partners lets their guard down - revealing their flaws, insecurities, hopes, dreams and fears. Guys are taught to have a tough exterior, and they are not as willing to be emotional in front of you.
How you know he’s stopped seeing anyone else
Oh, that girl you saw in the background of his Snapchat story? The girl who keeps leaving heart emojis on his Instagram comments? The girl he went to dinner and a movie with last night? So keep your eyes peeled for guys who are way too friendly with other women. A guy who is really interested in you and wants to get to know you would never wait until the last second to ask you out. He knows that your time is valuable, and he wants to make sure he secures a date and time with you days in advance. The man who carefully plans dates is the guy you should be giving your attention to.
Social media plays a big part in the way we date these days. You can tell a lot about a guy just by glancing at his Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat accounts.

A guy who is dating you and only you will have no problem adding you to his friends list almost immediately. As a matter of fact, he will probably add you before you even ask to add him. But the guy who is keeping his options open will keep his social media accounts a big secret.
Soon enough, he will get caught up in his lies, and he will be tripping all over his words when the two of you speak. Girls can spot a player from a mile away. Well, guys who keep their options open are the exact same way. Their phones hold the key to their multi-dating adventures - from steamy text messages to provocative selfies from various women.
He knows that if you are ever able to get ahold of his phone, his cover would be completely blown. When the two of you hang out together, his phone will either be stashed away deep down in his pocket, completely turned off, or turned upside down to conceal the text message and phone call notifications.
If he immediately puts you in a full nelson and swats the phone out of your hand, then you have your answer. But it seems like every time you try to ask him for exclusivity, he changes the subject.
This is your cue to drop him like a bad habit. Weekends are reserved for couples in committed relationships and for those who are working their way towards an exclusive relationship. It simply means that he uses the weekends to meet more girls that he could casually date or hookup with. He would much rather be out on the town, scouring the bars and nightclubs looking for hot single women than to spend the evening with you. I know it sucks, but the truth hurts. The next time he asks to see you on a weekday, suggest a weekend night instead.
When a guy is really serious about you, he will be anxious to introduce you to everyone - from his BFFs to his colleagues. He will want to show off the intelligent and beautiful woman he has been spending so much time with, and more than likely, he has already told his friends everything there is to know about you. This is why every time you suggest your group of friends and his group of friends meet up while out on the town, he will never agree to it. A guy who is ready for a relationship may not tell you his whole life story within the first five minutes of meeting you, but he will gladly any questions you may have about his past.
His main modus operandi will be to deflect, avoid and keep as much information to himself as possible. Texting is the most convenient form of communication. Everyone from pre-teens to grandmothers use text messages to keep in touch. He could copy and paste the same message to ten different women, and replying back to his influx of messages takes him less than two minutes. I was a happy go lucky guy before all this nonsense.
Every day is a struggle but I believe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. This is so not me, to despair this way. I really feel bad for her and in a way, very , very sad.
