When you start hearing lots of reasons why he isn’t free, you know what he’s trying to say. You’re ready to get serious and pursue a long-term relationship.
But if you’re not seeing anyone else, and you’re seeing a lot of each other what on earth is it if it’s not a relationship?And the “I’ll give you a call” bit is possibly nothing more than a social nicety like, “Take Care” or “Come See Us”. “Yes, I’m interested in a serious relationship.” Really Means – “I’m carefully assessing every woman I meet, and when I find one that feels just right. “You’re beautiful.” Really Means – “You’re really beautiful.” Sometimes men say what they mean.Some men are trained to be so polite at all times that they can’t end a date without booking a next one.

Some time ago there was an e Harmony Advice discussion about what a woman really means when she asks to split the check after dinner on the first date.
