Have you ever been in a situation where you like a guy, but things are progressing slower than you expected? It’s only natural to be left with doubts like “Does he even like me?”
In this post, we’ll discuss why some guys take it slow, the signs he’s into you, and how you can be sure you’re on track to a great relationship!
The fact a guy is taking so long to progress things could be GREAT news for your relationship…
But how do you know if it’s worth waiting for? In this article, you’ll learn how to tell if he actually likes you, using 5 key signs every committed man makes when he wants to pursue you.
It’s also important to remember that men form connections with you in four ways:
Mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical.
As counterintuitive as it sounds, the more a guy likes you, the SLOWER he will try to take the relationship and the reason why is actually quite clear…
When a man is slowly progressing the physical side of the relationship it’s because he’s got more to lose and therefore a greater risk!
When he’s built a powerful connection with you, he doesn’t want to ruin it, and he’s risking losing the mental, emotional, and spiritual journey he’s experienced with you.
Of course, there are other reasons he might be taking it slow as well, but if he’s showing you the five signs we’ll discuss today, they’re strong signs that he’s super into you and just waiting for the right time to take the leap!
Before we get into the five signs he’s into you, if you’d prefer to watch and listen rather than read, I invite you to check out the video version of this article here:

Let’s get into the 5 signs that prove he’s into you
(even if he’s taking it slow)…
1. Is He Pursuing You?
The first step to determine if he likes you is to ask yourself if he’s the one initiating the connection. Does he initiate phone calls, texts, and dates?
Look at your text thread and examine whether you are the one who’s texting him first and bringing all the progression. If that’s the case, then you’re the one doing the pursuing, and he’s probably not as into you as much as you’re into him.
The man who’s into you is going to be pursuing you by trying to get your attention. This might be him picking up the slack when the conversation reaches a lull, or him reaching out to ask you for an opinion on something.

However he does it, one of the sure signs he’s into is when he’s the one who initiates more of your interaction.
2. Is He Consistent In His Communication?
As a relationship naturally progresses, you’ll often see an increase in his communication consistency. For example, if you go on a date, he’ll probably text you afterward, saying he had a good time, and asking how you’re doing.
The guy who’s pursuing you is consistent with this communication, wants to stay on your radar, and will ensure you’re connecting at several points throughout the week (at a minimum).
What a committed man doesn’t do is go out with you, and then let a week go by before texting you again!
Inside, I’ll reveal ways you can make high-value men pursue you, want to spend time with you, and be present with you in the moment, so they stay focused on progressing the relationship to an incredible future together.
3. Does He Organize Dates In Prime Time Hours?
Another question to ask yourself is when you go out on a date with this guy, does he organize it for prime time hours? This means going out on a Friday or a Saturday evening when he would otherwise have plans elsewhere.
Are you hanging out at times that are important to you both?
Or is it only at times when it’s convenient for him, on a weeknight or in between other arrangements?
If he’s asking you out on a prime time hour, it’s a great sign that he’s into you because he’s prioritizing your time together over other plans, and planning it in for the most important times of the week.
4. Does He Pay For Dates?
This one sounds trivial, but men are hardwired to provide and protect those they care about… Specifically, people, they have a romantic interest in!
When a man pursues you, he will often plan the date, try to surprise you, and offer to pay for it at the end.
It’s an almost inescapable hard-wired trigger for him, and a great way to tell if a man is just wanting to be friends with you, or if he’s romantically interested in you and wants to provide for and protect you.
5. Does He Try To Progress The Relationship?
Progressing the relationship means he tries to make things exclusive (or at least hint at it). In other words, does he tell you things like,
“You know, I closed my online dating site, and so I’m not dating anyone else. I only want to date you”?
If he’s offering up comments like that, it’s a clear sign he’s interested because he’s hinting that he doesn’t want you dating anyone else, he wants to be the only person seeing you!
So there you have the 5 things to look for that will help you determine if a man is romantically interested in you.
If your man hasn’t made a physical move yet, but he seems to be giving you the signs that he is into you, you’ll want to encourage him and give him the green light to progress.
Remember, he’s worried about risking that emotional connection, mental connection, and spiritual connection he’s already built with you, so he might feel hesitant until you give him something to work off.

Now, I’d love to hear from you…
