1. “I’ll hold her hand on the third or fourth date if I think she’s a keeper. Even if we’ve already slept together at that point, hand holding is serious, it’s intimate, it’s like, ‘Hey I want this to be the only hand you hold, no one else’s, just mine.'” —Eddie, 25

2. “I listen to the important stuff, like if she tells me her brother’s name or that her mom’s birthday is coming up, I’m going to remember and bring it up.” —Adam, 26

3. “I actually call her instead of texting. When I’m serious about her, I want to hear her voice, I want to hear her laugh and then picture her smile, not just read and write emojis.” —Jeff, 25

4. “I ask about her more than I talk about myself. When I find a girl I really like, the only thing I want to learn is her, but when I’m with someone I’m just not that crazy about, I find myself and my own interests more intriguing than hers.” —Bryan, 26

6. “I want to stay up late all night talking to her, even if I have work the next day. And when she wants to go to sleep, I don’t let her and relentlessly ask her to stay up with me.” —Aaron, 26

7. “I’ll tell my parents about her. I’ll tell everyone about her, because I’m crazy about her and I can’t help it. It’s almost like I’m bragging unintentionally.” —Antonio, 27

9. “I will cut off all ties with any other casual fuck buddies or girls who are JUST hookups, and that includes following them on social media. Those chicks mean nothing in comparison to her, and I wouldn’t want her to think I’m still interested in playing the field.” —Christian, 26

10. “When I’m really serious about someone, I’ll ask them to come to church with me. My faith is a really important part of who I am, and if she can appreciate that and partake in that with me, then she’s a person I want to share my life with.” —Jeremy, 25

11. “I’ll take her on dates that are more than just dinner and drinks. We might do that for the first date, but when I really like her, I try to spice things up. Whether it’s active, or in a special location, I want things for her to be special, not ordinary.” —Cole, 28

12. “When I’m into her I become an open book. I’m not going to hide my feelings, or pretend I’m ‘not that interested.’ If I want to be with you, you’ll know.” —Dan, 27

13. “I’ll want to see her as much as possible. Even if I’ve got plans with my boys, I’ll still try to see her, because it will actually pain me not to see her.” —Kevin, 26 TC mark
