However, unknowingly what started as an FWB slowly changed into something more than late-night booty calls and I am grateful for it!

Although it wasn’t instant, but the subtle hints from his subconscious side were always there. All I had to do in my case was pay attention to it.

A short story that you might relate to

It all started at a mixer party we were drunk and single at that time. what do you expect from two young and carefree souls equally attracted to each other? If you are thinking about hook up and steamy sex then cheers mate that’s what originally happened. 

After that, we were catching up twice or thrice a month which changed to once a week pretty quickly because voila he was good in bed. Further, unknowingly we ended up chatting, talking, and doing things that we don’t usually do with hookup partners.

There were signs but we were stupid none of us could detect them until I was on my period and he was cooking soup for me. If your fuck buddy does that too then just a secret you aren’t just an FWB to him anymore!

13 Signs your Hookup Has Caught Feelings For You:

Although distinguishing affection from love can be quite confusing with a closer look, you can easily tell the difference. So, next time pay attention to these signs which can indicate that your hookup has feelings for you:

If a guy thinks of you as just a hook up then he won’t really invest his mornings in you. But if he stays in for the night and makes bed tea for you, it's a sign he loves to be with you. This initial desire to be with each other can indicate that he might want more than a great night!

2. You guys go to movies together

A hookup scene doesn’t really go out of the bedroom. In my initial dating stage, our interaction included a small talk and great nights only. However, after a while, we started going to movie theatres and midnight ice creams as well. 

These outings are a clear sign of the transformation and evolution of the bond between you two. If he is always hyped up about exploring places and having adventures with you. This obviously means that he loves spending time with you.  

3. He wants to know more

Is he always hyped up when you talk nerdy and is always there to clap for the little achievements? If this sounds similar then you are more than just a hookup buddy to him.

If he tries to indulge in your hobbies and is always curious then this could be a big sign. Usually, his interest in your hobbies might indicate that there’s care beneath the sheets.

4. He texts and calls

If you and your hookup buddy are texting and tagging these days then girl things might be changing. The urge to stay connected with each other is natural if he feels something special for you. 

Furthermore, if you find yourself waiting for his texts or are constantly sharing funny memes as well. This can be a sign to take things up to the next level.

5. He wants you to meet his friends

If he always asks you out for barbeques at his bestie’s place or invites you to group outings then this can be a sign. Friends are a big part and a guy will let you around them only when he feels like you are special in some way. So, if you laugh around and have group outings with him often then you are on the right track.

6. You guys cuddle lots

Instead of always rocking the boards are you guys cuddling a lot? If yes then it might mean that he is way into you and loves spending time with you. 

Cuddling is the best way to show affection and get high on dopamine, this formula is even personally tested. So, if this healthy habit is a routine between you two then you might want to level up your hookup game. 

7. He gets along with your friends

Has he been the newest member of self-care weekends and Tequila parties along with your homies? This might be a sign that he is trying to know more about you and wants to be on the bright side of your besties.

I remember inviting my boyfriend along with my friends once and they have trusted allies since then. So, if he is interested in meeting your gals then this might be a sign that he cares about the people around you as well.

And honestly, ain’t that cute?

8. You have in-depth weird conversations

Since our hook-up days talking crap about illogical daily soap has been a thing. I think I loved how seriously we fought over the ships in Vampire diaries. If this sounds relatable in a way or rings a bell, then savor these moments next time you are with him.

Having something unique to bond over indicates that you guys are already a lot into each other and the connection is deep. So, next time he starts talking about scooby doo episodes participate and bond over the weird little things.

9. He doesn’t mind holding hands 

If he loves holding your hands in movie theatres and during walks. This might indicate that he doesn’t care about a thing when he is with you. Moreover, he isn’t insecure about his connection with you.

To be honest, I find holding hands in public quite cute, a little PDA personally goes a long way.  So, if this sounds like your guy as well rest assured he has already fallen hard for you.

10. He always has your back

I always felt like my former hook up partner whom I’m dating since last year was always there to help. If he is the one you call in the middle of an emotional or car break down then the bond is deeper than you think. 

Men usually try their best to be knights for their women. If helpful and kind are synonyms for your guy then there’s no doubt that he has fallen head over heels for you.

11. He is caring

Did he take a day off to be with you last time you had a fever? If yes then rest assured young lady this man truly cares for you.

Men are pretty simple creatures but the only issue is that they aren’t really vocal. Being caring and protective is their way to show that they love you. So if you feel confused about this caring guy who is good in bed rest assured. Since he is also head over heels for you. 

12. He gets a little nervous

Does he get nervous around you?  if yes then it's a good sign. As this might mean that you throw him off balance a little and he wants to be his best in front of you. 

If your mate is a bit clumsy and cute around you try making him comfortable. Moreover, celebrate as well since you have the power to wreck him in a good way

13. He is interested in meeting your fam

Meeting a girl's family over dinner needs balls. If your guy comes over often and helps your mom in the kitchen then kudos as he might be serious about you. Moreover, if you’re acquainted with his fam as well then he might be thinking of a future perspective as well.
