Pretty much all girls have asked themselves this question at some point in their lives, right? I mean, you have known this guy for quite a while now, and he is a close friend who clearly cares about you.

But now, you wonder if there is something more. You wonder if he loves you?

That’s a toughie. But it is a question worth asking if you are considering turning the friendship into a full-blown romance.

After all, the last thing you want is ruining a friendship trying to turn it into something it was never meant to be.

It sucks when you turn out to be wrong and end up losing a friendship you valued in the process. A lot of friends who tried to date can painfully tell you this.

Once you cross the line and choose to date, all bets are off. Everything is on the line and you can lose everything if the romance fails, including your cherished friendship.

But what if you can know how things will turn out before you take this monumental step? That would be nice, right? 

As it turns out, you can!

So, rather than sit around driving yourself crazy wondering what move to make, here are some tips to help you make the best decision.

With these tips it should be easier to know if he loves you “that way” or if he cares for you just as a friend.

Signs He Only Cares About You

1. He openly discusses his romantic life with you.

If he readily shares what is going on in this life as far as other girls are concerned, then know that he sees you as a close friend, not a potential lover.

2. He never tries to impress you, and he is always comfortable around you.

When a guy is into you, he will try to make you notice him. He will not get too comfortable around you. 

3. He thinks of you as a sister.

That means although he loves and cares for you, he is not in love with you and does not see you as a romantic prospect.

4. His attempts to get in touch are always based on some need or another.

In short, he never calls just for the sake of it.

5. Your dating life does not make him jealous.

A guy who loves you would not enjoy seeing you date other men. But a man who only cares for you might even encourage you and give you tips to improve your dating life. 

6. He only hangs out with you in groups.

This goes to prove that he is avoiding any intimate situations with you.

7. He has made no move on you.

When you get close to a guy who likes you, he will often try to make a move and ask you out or request something that will make it clear he sees you as a romantic interest.

When it’s all said and done, the decision to turn a friendship into a romance falls squarely on you. But if you are torn, and would like a little more information as you make the final decision, then the above points might help. Just be ready for the consequences. But otherwise, all the best!
