14 Little Things Every Guy Does When He's Really Into the Girl He's Dating

You just met your boo and you have a good feeling, like, a really good feeling. You can't stop thinking about her. You'll text her while you're in class; you'll text her while you're in a meeting; you'll text her while you're crossing the road.

1. Texts her throughout the day. You just met your boo and you have a good feeling, like, a really good feeling. You can't stop thinking about her. You'll text her while you're in class, you'll text her while you're in a meeting, you'll text her while you're crossing the road. BEEP BEEP!

2. Loses sleep. By the time you get home, take a shower, and browse the internet for a bit, it's time for bed. So, you'll head to your room, switch off the lights, jump under the covers and call her. Because when you're into someone, you don't get to sleep for eight hours (unless you skip class or call in sick for work.)

3. Taps her a**. When she's walking by, just for the heck of it.

4. Plays around. You're going on the road to grab some dinner, and you ask "Babe, would you like anything?" and she responds "No, I just had something to eat." But when you get back home, and begin to devour your meal she uninvitingly takes a bite. And, then, she looks at you with that sheepish smirk on her face. So, you pretend to be pissed.

5. Texts "I miss you." And wait for her to respond, "I miss you too."

6. Texts "I love you." She'll respond "I love you too." And if you're the really mushy type, you may take it one step further and say "I love you more." Damn, that sounds sappy.

7. Cuddles her. At 5:00 am, when you're half asleep, you'll roll over to her side of the bed, put your arms around her and pull her close. And for her, that's the best feeling ever. Every girl will agree.

8. Cleans up. He'll help out, willingly. And even learn to put the toilet seat down. The toilet thing might take up to 10 years, but it's a good sign when it happens.

9. Slow dances. You're in the club, dancing to rap music (or as the older folks say "grinding on each other") because apparently what we do these days is not exactly dancing. Towards the end of the night, when the DJ switches up the music and plays a song like "All of Me," you'll turn your girl around, put your arms around her waist, and look into her eyes. And actually dance!

10. Hugs her. You're watching a movie and you want to get comfortable. So you'll stretch out your legs (on a foot rest), inch closer and wrap your arms around her. She'll then shuffle in your arms and rest her head on your shoulder.

11. Really listens. After making love, she may want to talk a little. She'll fold her hands and rest them on your chest, using it as a cushion for her chin. And while she asks you all kinds of questions -- because women always have stuff on their minds -- you'll stroke her hair and gently rub her arms.

12. Teases her. When she does something silly, he'll tease her right back. Because it's kind of cute when she gets worked up over minor stuff.

13. Looks out for her. You're up late doing work, but you've had enough, so you close your laptop and head to your room. And there she is lying across the bed, sprawled out. Clearly, women can't sleep in a straight line (it's impossible for them). But more importantly, you don't want her to get chilly nor be eaten alive by mosquitos, so you cover her with the sheet.

14. Watches her sleep. You finally get into bed, take a second to gaze at her, smile contentedly and then you're off to sleep.
