Hang out with your friends, go for a meal with your sister, have drinks after work, and after a certain amount of time you will both start doing many of these things together.Take it slowly and don’t rush into spending every evening with your new man.But a guy will most likely be a little scared if you knock back a few shots before dinner.

If you call constantly to “just check in” then the chances are he’ll feel smothered within a week and will lose interest or just assume you are a bit desperate.

If you don’t call, he’ll start to panic and think that you have a life that doesn’t revolve around him which leads us to…

But exactly how do you find out without asking him outright and getting a look like you’ve just asked him to marry you?

Figuring out what is going on in a guy’s mind in the first few weeks of dating would really help a woman feel more assured, knowing that she is in control of the situation.

Do your own thing – Never make us the centre of your world.

Men love doing their own thing, and they love a woman who does her own thing even more.

He will want his own space and really appreciate you if you give it to him.

A final note – Commitment scares the hell out of us.

Of course, there are men out there that will disagree but the vast majority of us are scared stiff of the future.

A week in advance, or possibly a month, is usually as far as we are willing to commit after a few weeks or even months of dating.

Now you know he’s taking this thing seriously and you can probably stop calling it dating and start using the word relationship.
