When you’re dating someone, sometimes you wonder where things are going. You can’t help but wonder if the two of you are even on the same page.
Do they still like you? Are they willing to make it official with you soon? Do they even see a future with you?
You could ask them these questions, but the fear of them reacting negatively to all these questions and expectations might scare them off. And you might really like this person so you don’t want to lose them. Well here are some ways to find out if you two are on the same page without flat-out asking them.
Check social media to see what’s up. Do they make any references to you? Have any pictures of you or both of you posted? Do they tag you in pictures? When you tag them in photos do they leave the tag alone, or do they remove it? If they do post photos of you, tag you in pictures, and don’t remove tags of themselves from your photos then that means they’re serious about this relationship, or are at least serious enough to take it public which in today’s world is a pretty big deal. But if they don’t post photos, or don’t tag you in photos then they might not be ready to get into something serious right now. But if they go out of their way to un-tag themselves from your photo, that’s a red flag, and it might mean that they want to seem single, or they have someone else whom they may be pursuing or are already with. It might also mean that you take terrible photos, and they didn’t want to be tagged in it.
