Navigating the transition from friendship to something more can be tricky. Often, it’s hard to tell if a friend’s feelings have deepened into romantic territory. If you suspect a friend might be viewing you as more than just a buddy, here are seven signs to look out for that could indicate they want to take your relationship to the next level.

1. Increased Communication

If your friend is reaching out more frequently than usual, especially with texts or calls that stretch late into the night, this could be a sign they are thinking about you a lot. They might also share more personal or intimate details about their life, showing a desire to deepen the connection.

While exploring your feelings and the signs of a deeper connection, consider diving into some literature on the subject. The Science of Relationships: Answers to Your Questions about Dating, Marriage, and Family offers great insights and might help you understand your evolving emotions and connections better.

2. Physical Closeness

Someone who wants to be more than friends might increase their physical proximity. They may sit closer to you than before, touch your arm or back casually, or give you long, warm hugs. Physical touch is a big indicator of affection and a way to test the boundaries of your comfort with each other.

3. Jealousy

A friend who feels jealous when you date or talk about others might be harboring deeper feelings. They could react by seeming sad, withdrawn, or even annoyed when you mention other potential romantic interests.

4. Their Friends Know All About You

If their friends seem to know a lot about you, it’s likely that you’re the topic of conversation often. This could be a sign that they think of you as someone important and perhaps want to take things beyond friendship.

5. Change in Appearance

A friend who suddenly starts to take more care in their appearance when you are around might be trying to catch your eye. This includes dressing better, grooming more meticulously, or wearing a scent they know you like.

6. Special Treatment

If you notice that they treat you differently from other friends, such as giving you more attention, going out of their way to help you, or buying you thoughtful gifts, it might be because they see you as more than a friend.

7. They Make Time for You

No matter how busy they are, they make sure to carve out time for you. They may prioritize your calls, choose to hang out with you over others, or drop previous plans if you need them. This level of commitment often indicates that they value your relationship highly and may hope for more.
