He jokes about his potential competition in a way that is clearly designed to elicit information. Or he may ask you how you know a certain guy that you seem friendly with. He hopes that you will tell him indirectly that there is no one else you are interested in besides him.4. Of course you’ll wonder just what he is feeling for you.

In a culture that prioritizes sexual intimacy before emotional intimacy, forming real romantic attachments is a challenge for both men and women. As you can see, there are lots of hurdles one needs to jump before landing in a loving romantic relationship, known as dating.
And there are many perils and risks along the journey.
