The point is, he doesn’t compartmentalize his life. Everyone is busy these days, with endless deadlines and demands. The man who thinks of you as more than a “date” will involve you in his decisions about everything from which shoes you like best when he’s shopping to how he should handle a crisis at work.

You don't want to be fielding questions RE: who was in the background of your Snapchat. There's no more waiting hours (or days) to answer texts, no being coy with plans or being afraid to sleep over. You've moved past that stage and now you just act like reasonable human beings toward each other without overthinking and dissecting every interaction. It not only says that your relationship is serious enough to do that, it also says, "I believe in this relationship enough to gamble at least three articles of clothing on it, because if we do break up, I may never see them again."9.

The fact that he remembers little details about your life means you've spent enough time with each other for you to tell him. There's nothing more satisfying than being out of town when a casual hookup texts you to hang out—it makes you feel wanted in multiple cities like Ludacris. You get invited on double dates from your other couple friends.

Like, So if you're telling each other about your travel plans it means he's made it to your inner circle. Uh, Tracy and Mark have been dating for two years, you are NOT in the same boat.

Above all, keep the tone light and maintain open lines of communication.

If you feel confident at this point that you want things to be serious, go ahead and tell him, Trespicio says.

Talk about blurred lines."Every person and relationship is different, and there's no magic phrase or action that can 'get' someone to commit," says Terri Trespicio, a lifestyle and relationship expert based in New York City. One thing to look out for: If he's acting extremely jealous or policing your every move, you need to really reevaluate things.
