You’re always waiting for his call
You know you’ve got it bad when you’re sitting around just waiting for him to call. You check your phone a billion times just to see if he’s thinking about you, because let’s be honest here, you’re thinking about him. And when you put on a movie or read a good book to distract yourself from the overwhelming presence that your cell phone has become, you start to image him in the role of the hero or love interest. After just an hour of this torment you get pissed and wonder: “How dare he have a life that doesn’t include me!”
All you want is to cuddle
Instead of having a late night booty call followed by the embarrassing walk of shame, all you want is to stay at his place and snuggle for a bit. You may not even want to hook up but just head over to his place to talk all night long. You’re beginning to find a fascination with the dimple in his cheek or how the sunlight catches his beautiful blue eyes. Suddenly all you want is to be his universe and you begin to question, are you friends with benefits or something more?
You’ve got a case of the green-eyed monster
We hate to break it to you, but you’re jealous when you can’t stand any of his other female friends or get nervous every time he’s on his phone. If you’ve become that woman who casually stalks his best friend “Amy” on Facebook or follows him around with your eyes when you go to the bar you’ve officially caught feelings for homeboy. You want to be the only lady of his life and you want him to admit that to all his friends, especially “Amy”. And when other women ask who you are, wondering if you guys are friends with benefits or something more, all you want is for him to say “more”.
You’re with other people but all you think of is him
If you’re out on a date with another guy and texting your boy toy about how bad it is it’s because you secretly wish you were out on a date with him instead. You want him to know that you’re on a date because you’re a hot commodity and other men are noticing, but at the same time you want to make it clear that it’s not going well, giving him the opportunity to know he’s got a shot. If you’re out with friends and you spend the whole night texting him about your day or funny things that make you think of him it’s because he’s the number one priority in your mind.
You say the phrase “If you were my boyfriend…”
This is the breaking point in discovering if you’re friends with benefits or something more. You guys talk a lot about your past, for example: past relationships, friends, family, or long term goals. You feel the most at ease when you’re together while you’re joking around or making fun of each other. Here’s when you know you’ve fallen for him, when you talk about what your relationship could be like in the future. If you say that you’d love to: “Go on a trip together…if you were my boyfriend” or that your parents ask about him but you reassure them saying that “If he were my boyfriend I’d tell you”. It’s these subtle hints that you need to recognize as longing.
Are you in a friends with benefits relationship? Or do you want something more?
