So the hottie you’ve been
crushing on since preschool finally asked you out (squee!). That’s a sure sign
that he’s interested, but if you wanna know more, you’ve gotta read between the
lines. There’s a lot of secret stuff hidden in his offers, so use our guide to
figure out what he’s
If he wants to head to the mall...
Since your crush suggested a
more public hangout, he could be feeling nervous about being alone with you or
having enough things to say. To avoid an awk scenario, the mall was this shy
guy’s perfect solution—it’s busy, exciting and if conversation screeches to a
halt, you can always go people-watching or hit up the food court for some cheap
grub. Take this date as a sign that he likes you, but he’s a little worried
about getting too serious too quickly. This guy may be in total need of a
confidence boost, but he wants to set you two up for a good time. He’s caring,
sweet, and doesn’t want to make ya uncomfortable. Def stick around for the
If he offers a classic dinner-date...
you’ve got a real sweetie on your hands! This guy is doing things the
old-fashioned way, and we think that’s super cute. Going out to dinner is the
perfect way to show he’s serious about you, and that your relationship is more
than just a flirty fling. This is the kind of guy who proves that a little bit
of manners go a long way. He’s very reliable, and once he has you, he’ll
support you through whatever challenges come your way. Just make sure he knows
that you’re noticing his classic kindness. We always appreciate a true
If he asks you to take a stroll in the park...
Your crush is telling you
there’s only one thing on his mind: you. A relaxing walk has no distractions,
and it will let you two lovebirds focus on getting to know each other better.
What a great way to break the ice and let the romance rise! He’s thoughtful,
charming and really cares about your feelings. But make sure you both agree
that the outing is a date, not just a break for some fresh air. You could also
take a walk with a bestie, so talk it out beforehand and make sure he’s aiming
for BF, not BGF.
If he suggests a movie at his place...
Woah, this guy is getting
real serious real fast. Inviting you over to his house means he wants you to
meet the fam already. If you’re looking for a committed BF, this guy is the way
to go. He’s not messing around—he’s ready to get straight to BF/GF status, which
can save you a lot of stressing. But if you want to take some more time to hang
out before you jump from pals to lovey couple, try suggesting a different
activity. There’s no rush when it comes to learning about each other and
building your relationship.
