If things were always normal, every person we see a future with, will feel the same way about us, too.

Unfortunately, that’s not usually the case. We all know now, that some people are in a relationship with people that are not in a relationship with them.

Well, you might be in that kind of relationship, too, who knows?

There are signs to look out for if one needs to be sure of where they stand on their lover’s priority list.

Here are five of them:

1. No labels

If a guy finds it hard to introduce you to people as his girlfriend or his woman, you better know it isn’t really labels he has a problem with, it’s you.

Forget all that talk about not wanting to go public with the affair just yet. Any guy that’s looking to go the mile with you will not find it hard to introduce you as his lover, especially to people that matter in his life.

You’re going to be with him for the long haul, right? So what’s the point of hiding it now?

2. He never makes concrete plans

If he doesn’t see a future with you, he won’t treat you like there’s a future. Period.

This might make him sound like a heartless asshole, and that’s not always the case. Sometimes this behaviour can be unconscious. But that doesn’t mean you should put up with it.

3. Sees you only when there’s a chance of getting laid

This is not to say that a guy that desires to have sex with you will not be interested in a future with you.

The point, on the other hand, is that, if a guy sees a future with you, he’ll jump at the opportunity to be with you, whether he’ll get some ‘sugar’ or not.

4. He won’t introduce you to his family

If a guy sees no future with you, what’s the point of introducing you to his parents? Why should he go through the clumsiness of introducing someone to his family with whom he has no real intention of going the distance?

5. He never talks about the future

A guy that does not see a future with you will surely have some difficulty talking about it. I mean, why talk about something that’s not even there?

And you, being all lovey-dovey, decides to ask, all you’ll discover is that as far as he is concerned, there isn’t one.

However, it is advised that you ask if he isn’t forthcoming about what the future holds for you both. Don’t be scared of making him uncomfortable
