How to read the subtle signs she wants to be your girlfriend
Dating can be a really fun experience. Of course, we’ve all been on disaster dates, but for the most part, meeting new people and getting to know them is an experience within itself. When you meet someone that you like, you know, you date them and see how it goes.
At the same time, you’re not committing to them fully, still keeping your options open in case it’s short-lived. However, just because you both are casually seeing each other doesn’t mean she won’t have developed serious feelings for you. As she gets to know you more and more, her feelings towards you may continue to grow. You just need to pay attention to the signs she wants to be your girlfriend when they crop up, and decide for yourself how you want to progress with the relationship.
#1 She listens. If she didn’t care, she wouldn’t spend hours listening to you talk about work or school because these things don’t have anything to do with her. But, when someone really likes you, they take what you say seriously and want you to open up to them. This creates an emotional connection and trust between the both of you.

#2 You’ve met her friends and family. Listen, whether you’re a girl or guy, there’s no way you’re going to introduce someone to your inner circle if you didn’t like them. Introducing you to her family and friends is a huge sign that she wants them to get to know you. Why? Because to her, you’re more than just someone she has sex with. You’re someone she really likes.
#3 You have deep conversations. Of course, you can spend your time talking about useless and silly things, but then you can also have serious conversations with each other. Whether the topics are tricky ones like politics and religion, you battle through them. Covering serious topics helps give her a better idea of how you think.

#4 She opens up. If she wants to connect with you, she’s going to open up to you. This isn’t something she’ll do if you are just having sex. But, if she sees you as something more, a potential partner, then she’ll make herself emotionally vulnerable.
#5 She mentions the future. She may not say that she wants to get married and have babies with you, but that doesn’t mean she’s not looking for something exclusive. If she mentions traveling in the summer and invites you along, well, she’s talking about the future. See, the future doesn’t have to be years from now, it could even be weeks or months.
#6 She’s off online dating. Well, if she deletes her dating profile on Tinder or Bumble, that’s a solid sign that she’s not looking for anyone else. I mean, you know what this means, I don’t need to tell you this. She’s not interested in finding someone else because she has you. [Read: How to know if she is slowly falling deeper in love with you]
#7 You’re the first one she calls. Whether it’s good or bad news, you’re the first one she calls to tell. You’re her go-to person, the one that she knows will always be there for her. Why is she calling you? It doesn’t matter. The point is, you’re the first person she thinks about when something happens in her life. Now, that’s one of the solid signs she wants to be your girlfriend.
#8 She knows the small things. You could tell someone what your favorite flavor of ice cream is, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to care to remember. But if someone is interested in you, they’re going to be like a sponge, absorbing every little detail about you. If she’s not just using you for sex, then she’ll remember all the small things about you. [Read: Is she only an attention whore or someone to be serious about?]
#9 She says she’s looking for something more. Maybe you weren’t listening, but she’s probably hinted to you that she wants something more. She may have told you that she’s ready for something serious or that she’s not into casual relationships. These are all hints that she is looking for something exclusive. And that could be with you.
#10 She takes care of you. If you’re sick, she calls you and sees how you are, maybe even bringing over some soup. These are small acts, but they’re clear signs that she cares about you. Women will tend to show signs of nurturing towards people they have feelings for. These are the little ways that they show they care.
#11 She’s physical with you. This doesn’t mean she’s licking your face at the mall or grinding against you at the club. This isn’t the touching I’m talking about. If she’s comfortable around you, then she’s not going to have a problem with touching you. When I mean touching, I mean caressing your arm, shoulders, or thighs. We tend to forget about the importance of touch. However, it’s a huge indicator that someone likes you. [Read: 16 non-sexual touches that show someone truly cares for you]
#12 She surprises you. She doesn’t have to buy you a new Mercedes or show up in lingerie. This doesn’t show that she wants to be exclusive. When I say surprise, I’m talking about things that are more thoughtful. Maybe she surprises you with breakfast in bed or bakes your favorite cookies. These are surprises that take careful thought and planning. [Read: 14 signs to know if you’re just dating or in a relationship]
#13 She laughs. Now, this doesn’t mean that she wants to be your girlfriend, but when someone feels comfortable enough to laugh with you, that’s a sign that they like you. Laughing is what connects people and those that can laugh together have a connection. If she’s taking care of you, laughing, and introducing you to her family and friends, that’s a great combination.
So, as subtle as they may seem, these are the clearest and most obvious signs she wants to be your girlfriend. Now all you need to do is put the pieces of the puzzle together!
