- They only notice how you look. Anyone truly interested will mention other aspects of your personality that they find attractive.
- Conversations always turn sexual. Regardless of the topic of conversation, they find a way to bring sex into the conversation
- Texts and emails are flirty and sexual: "What are you wearing right now"? vs "how was your day?"

- They want to impress you, because they care what you think
- Their guard drops. Your conversations become deep and you're both willing to show levels of vulnerability
- They are checking you out! Men, specifically, are visual creatures. If you notice him staring at you longer than usual, take that as a compliment
- They do not check their phone - it will not matter if work is emailing, or who won the game. You are the priority
