Three Signs: Do they want me or nah?

The friend zone: 

Watch out for this, because some people are in this bracket and don’t even realize it. When one person truly likes another person they can easily mistake the other person’s friendliness as more than that. That is why it is essential to communicate your feelings so that a common intimate interest is established. Even when sex is involved you could still be in the friend zone. Although I encourage everyone to be the best of friends before entering into a committed relationship make sure that to them it doesn’t stop at just friends. Communication is going to be the best determining factor here. If there is never any talk about their future including you by their side as a companion then chances are you are just a friend. Don’t force what isn’t there.

These are just a few red flags. I encourage you to pay very close attention to a person’s actions before getting your emotions involved, and investing a lot of yourself. If you are a woman keep in mind that a man that is truly interested will reach out to you. You won’t be the only one wanting to make plans and most definitely won’t be the only looking towards a future. Men may be a little reserved when it comes to their emotions, but when they have found what they consider to be a good woman for them you will know it because he will show it. If you are a guy, remember that women are emotional beings. If you just listen to her response to certain things you say, her contribution to the conversation, and watch her body language when in your presence it should be pretty easy to tell if she likes you or has thrown you in the friend zone. Don’t stay in limbo with a person. Life is too short to waste time. Figure out if it is a go or a no and proceed accordingly.
