He may not be Ryan Gosling, and you’re not trying to compare yourself to Sandy from “Grease,” but you went and met a pretty great guy (or girl) this summer, anyway. Cuddling on swan pool floats, holding hands on the beach, romantic ice cream dates…you get the picture. It was pretty much straight out of “The Notebook.” But now summer is winding down, fall classes are right around the corner, and you’re beginning to wonder if your picture-perfect fling will make it past Labor Day. If you’re looking for a few signs that you’re headed in the right direction, here are a few clues.
You don’t stress over the content of your texts.
The days when you had to edit a text three times and send it to at least two friends for review before sending a simple “what’s up?” are behind you. Maybe you even — gasp — double text, and without fear. True love.
You make plans.
Real plans, not plans to “hang out later.” Maybe you’re their plus one to a friend’s wedding next month, or you’re planning to go to an upcoming concert together. It can even be as simple as agreeing to see a movie that comes out in a few weeks. Whatever it is, you’re including each other in your future plans, and that speaks volumes.
