This next bit of intelligence is for the single ladies. Want to know if the new guy you’re dating thinks you’re “The One” or simply “the one for now?” Well, researchers asked men to share the top signs they’re only interested in dating a woman short-term. Here are the results:

  • The first sign that he thinks you’re a short-termer: He never calls you, he only texts you. Researchers say that a man who really likes a woman wants to hear her voice, because it makes him feel more connected to her. So, if he only texts you, that means he’s not interested in a long-term relationship.

  • Another sign he’s not interested in a relationship: He’s a chronic flaker. Experts say that a man who’s interested will carve out as much time as possible to see you. So, if the new guy you’re dating is always running late or flat-out canceling your plans, it’s time to move on. 

  • Then, does your new guy hold your hand in public? If the answer’s “no,” beware! Experts say that even if a man is shy or uncomfortable with public displays of affection, if he really likes you, he’ll occasionally grab your hand or touch your shoulder, because he’ll want to physically feel connected to you.

  • And the final way to tell a guy doesn’t see you as long-term material: He doesn’t introduce you to his friends. Experts say when a guy wants to get serious, he’ll introduce the woman in question to his friends, and it’s his way of letting her into his inner circle. So, ladies, if you’ve been dating a guy for a few months and you haven’t met “the gang” yet, you may need to find someone else.
