8. You have their phone number memorized…
In the “smart phone” era people don’t memorize phone numbers as much anymore. The numbers you do decide to commit to memory are for two reasons. Either you call this person a lot and have seen the number so many times that you can recall it, or you think that the other person is so important that you want to be able to contact them in the event that your phone dies unexpectedly.
7. You know (at least half) their weekly schedule…
This doesn’t mean that you run around carrying their books, or dropping stuff at work for them…yet. But what it does mean is that you’ve been seeing enough of this person that you know where they are supposed to be during the more normal parts of their week. If someone can call you randomly, and you know where the other person is most likely to be, without contacting them, you might be in the the beginning stages of a relationship.
6. (At Least) One of your parents could identify them, but has never met them
If you have told one of your parents about them in enough detail that they can picture this person then you’re close to hitting that “In a Relationship” status. It could be that you bragged to your dad about your hot lab partner that you’ve been grabbing drinks with after class, or telling your mom about the nice guy who helped change your flat tire. If you have described enough of this person that one of your parent could visit and say “Oh, you must be…” you’ve said too much. DISCLAIMER**- Doesn’t count if the person has an eyepatch, or facial tattoo!
5. You place your phone face down
We all get those strange texts from exes and friends of the opposite sex, which could come off as flirting. If you find yourself hanging out with a person you just “hook up” with, it wouldn’t really matter to you if they notice one of these texts. In the beginning of a relationship however, you might not want to divulge this part of your life yet, so you leave your phone face down on the table, desk, nightstand, etc in hopes that any potentially embarrassing messages come through…you’ll be the first to know. If the other person has already seen it, they are WAY TOO NOSY, and you should run…quickly! They’ll probably need you email/Twitter/Facebook/FiestaFrog password soon because you’re gonna be doing EVERYTHING together.
4. You can order food for them
This one is pretty simple. If they are still laying in your bed, and you decide to order food, could you order them something from a random restaurant which they w
