5 signs he is serious about you

19 April 2016, 21:02 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Have you ever broken up with someone and then they pulled the rag right under you by asking, ‘We were in a relationship?’ Bet you did not tell anyone about that one.

Women are the type to give those kinds of ultimatums, ‘I don’t even know what I saw in you. I have better people who want me.’ Only for the man to give you a very blank look like, ‘We were together?’ All this time you were in a relationship but by yourself. All the signs were there from their lack of effort but you chose to assume that since they do this then it can only mean that I am that for them.

You have met the family-especially the father and mother

Our generation has no respect for many things so why would you assume that just because someone introduced you to their parent it means something?

Most of our parents don’t even live in the rural areas like their old folks, so when you go pick someone up from their home and their parent is there, obviously, they will not act like you are not there but they will introduce you. If they say, ‘This is my friend….’ You are a friend. If they say, ‘This is someone I have been seeing and they are my girlfriend…’ then you have the title. For now!

You have the keys to his house

Rule Number one: Unless someone is your man/ your boyfriend; don’t go washing utensils and cooking for him. That man is not yours why are you being his maid. On the other hand, if you have been cooking and cleaning so that the man can see your wife material skills then now you know why you have the keys to his house. You are helping him make his work easier so why would he not be smart enough to give you keys to his house so that you can make it clean and make him food  before you leave to go to your own house? These days’ men are not worried about being robbed.

You have met the friends

Not a very big deal by the way.  That is not a sign. This is not a sign.

‘But he said…..’ No, it is not a sign. Ladies, you should not want to meet his friends if he has not made his intentions clear to you. Let him tell you, ‘you are my friend.’ Or ‘we are just friends with benefits keeping it between us.’ The worst thing that can happen to you is when you wear your heart on a sleeve for a man and his friends already know he is just using you until he gets the lady they all know he really wants. You look really dumb. Don’t look forward to meeting a man’s friends if he has not told you what you are to him because they already know.

He invites you to go out with him

Unless a man says, ‘I want to try this with you.’ ‘I want you to be my girlfriend.’ He can just invite you out because he likes your company. That is all. A man can take you out, call you every Friday for a nice weekend trip and buy you lunch or whatever but that does not mean a thing if he does not say so. He might just like spending time with you but just not enough to make you his. He might just like your conversations or your nature or your jokes. If you do not like this, let him be and move on, don’t stick around hoping he will change.

He buys you gifts

I also buy my friends-the ones that I like very much-gifts; does not mean I am dating them. When you do things for a man, for example, wash his shirts. The very gentlemanly ones will feel very uncomfortable when they know you are wasting yourself on him. What do you think he will do? He will buy you a gift to assuage his guilt. He does not want to have a long drawn out conversation about how he should have told you his intentions. He will buy gifts so that when you want to cry about it, you will know you did not do it for free either.
