What does it mean when a guy shows you pictures of his family

When a guy shows you pictures of his family, it means that he trusts you enough to tell you about his parents and show his parents pictures. He wants to show you that he loves his family and he cares about them a lot. Maybe he wants to impress you and make a good image of himself. He thinks of you as a close person, and he is comfortable enough to show it. 

In a short sentence, when a guy shows you pictures of his family, it means that he trusts you and wants you to become closer. 

Signs he is really into you

He talks with you about his goals – He is serious with you when he talks to you about his goals and dreams. This is the way he has to let you know what he wants to achieve in life, and if you are willing to do it with him. 

If, on the contrary, he does not speak to you about this, it is clear that he does not see the relationship as something that lasts a long time. Sharing his goals with you may be something that does not seem very big, but his way of opening up and letting you in so that you can be his support in life and help him achieve them.

Introduces you to his friends and family – That he mentions or introduces you to his family and friends is one of the best indicators that he wants something serious with you. 

This is a clear sign that he wants to spend most of his time with you, and he does not intend to have to separate between you and family-friends, which is why he considers you as important as each other. The way in which he introduces you to others is also important, since introducing yourself as “this is my friend” is not the same as “this is my girlfriend”.

He expresses his feelings freely – When a man sees a future with you, he will let his guard down, soften, and express his feelings before you. You have to be aware that it takes a long time for the boys to show their emotional side, but if the relationship goes for a long time, be sure that yours will. 

Another thing to pay attention to is their acts since normally boys express more with small acts than with words, so you must be very attentive to those tiny clues they give you.

He includes you in his future plans – This is another great sign that he wants something serious with you. If he includes you in his future plans, it means that it is difficult for him to imagine his life without you. 

Let’s keep in mind that most boys are usually lonely people who only care about their family and friends. For all these reasons, if the boy you like cannot face a future without you, that means that you are the right girl and that he will gradually include you in all his plans, such as family reunions, for example.

He spends a lot of time with you – If he enjoys your company and you make his time pass quickly, rest assured that he will always have time for you. Even if it’s just to see your face for a second during a video chat in the middle of his workday, he really wants to be with you. 

If there is something that characterizes the masculine gender it is that they have a very tight schedule and that they are very practical. This means that they will not spend their valuable time with someone they do not like. Knowing this, you should feel lucky if your boy just wants to spend time with you.

He doesn’t play –  We are not talking about going to have a game of basketball, soccer or tennis with friends: you have to assume that he will always do it. We refer to that silly game as ignoring your calls or messages, saying one thing and then doing another or trying to make you jealous. 

When a boy is really interested in you, he will put all these children’s games aside with the aim of showing you that he is serious. For this reason, if you want something serious with him, you shouldn’t do this either, as he will really tire soon if he doesn’t feel really reciprocated.

He cares about your friends – If he pays almost the same attention to your friends as he pays you, this is a good sign, since he’s trying to be the man of your life. Taking an interest in their problems, even if they are really nonsense, is a sign from him that he really is 100% in the relationship and cares about everything around you. 

If you talk to your friends as if you were a person close to the group, regardless of being your boyfriend, this boy is really worth it. Better keep that in mind.

He stopped seeing other people – It is common in relationships today that until it becomes serious, they both see other people, since “there is nothing.” But an indicative sign that they really see you as something else, is when they stop seeing other people since they prefer to spend all their energies on you and build a happy future with you. He is so fascinated that you are enough for him and he doesn’t need to look for anyone else.

He tries to impress you. There are two types of men who impress: the one who wants to do it because he is a narcissist and only wants you to praise him or the one who wants to impress you because you really have caused something in him and wants to give you the best.

If you identified that it is the latter, you are on the right track.

Affection in public –  if he likes you, he will not be afraid to show his love in front of others. Even if that means being teased by friends and other people like family. He will do the same because he really cares about you.

He is looking for an excuse to show you his best look. When, for some reason, he has to get dressed and groomed for some occasion, and he is not with you, he will look for some way to show it to you. It could be that he sends you a photo with his brother, his family or with friends. He will want you to see him in his best shape, with his best look, just for you.

He calls you after work. Almost always, after he leaves work, he calls you to tell you how his day has been. He gives you all the details and shares the information with you because you are special to him. And he calls you just for that. He just wants you to know what his day has been like.

He is patient to wait for “that” moment: perhaps he likes you so much that he has wanted to be with you alone from the beginning, but he will not hurry up and go at your own pace. It will respect your decision if you want to slow down and wait for you. Because he likes you and cares about you.

He will always look for a space in his life, although it is not convenient, to spend time with you: even if it is 15 minutes where they coincide at lunchtime, or when leaving work, or a small breakfast before leaving in the morning, He will try to spend precious little seconds with you because he likes you and cares about you.

He wants to spend time together even after having sex: if after having a romantic date, or a Friday night out, they end up waking up together in the morning and the first thing he says to you is “Are we going to have lunch at…? or are we going to see a movie? ”, and you’re still in your worst state, it’s because he really likes you.

Some guys show that their into you by showing interest in you and your life. For example, he might ask you for your baby pictures, may be because he wants to know how the girl he likes was in her childhood.

If you want to know when it is time to move to the next step of your relationship, I recommend this article.

Additionally, men are not emotionally irrational like women. They don’t jump to conclusions, instead take baby steps towards their goals.
