Dating or exclusive
If your plans regularly involve spending time with their friends and family, this is a great sign.
An actual monogamous relationship takes exclusivity a step further, when you can commit to a future with this person.
If someone wants to date other people, they’ll leave one of their weekend nights available.
When someone is really into you they will be excited to show you off to their loved ones and integrate you into their social circle and life.
“When it shifts into a relationship, there’s a focus on the longer term,” Concepcion says.
“There’s a desire to get on the same page about bigger life goals, such as living arrangements, finances, family, career goals, and anything requiring true partnership.” Of course, these life elements take some time to build up to, as well.
