If your ex’s friend, who you are falling for, is constantly trying to do things with you one on one, he may see you as more than just a friend too.
This is especially true if these occasions are mostly one on one.
If he tends to do things with you with his other friends or in a group, he may not really see you as more than just a friend.
Thereby, just look back on when you have hung out with him and how often it was just the both of you on these occasions.
The more he hangs out with you and only you, the more likely he may see you as more than just a friend.
During these moments you should also observe his body language.
Does he constantly touch you or get close to you?
Does he get really animated or excited?
Do you ever notice that there are moments when he is just staring at you as though he has forgotten what the both of you were there to do in the first place?
If he has done all these or some of these things when you have hung out with him, there is a good chance that he sees you as more than just a friend.
You should be diligent in your observation of him.
These are normally very strong body language cues of romantic interest.
Something else you can pay attention to is in how often he talks about you when you aren’t present.
If you have heard from others that he was talking about you in conversation, there is a good chance that you have left an impression on him.
Most people aren’t going to keep talking about someone else to their friends, family or colleagues if they didn’t feel some kind of connection and fondness for that person.
If he is talking like this about you to others, telling them about how amazing you are or how fun you were the other day, he is thinking about you even when you are not around.
This is a very good sign that he may see you as more than just a friend.
Another good way to tell that your ex’s friend sees you are more than just a friend is if you have noticed that he tends to flirt with you on a consistent basis.
He may be more obvious with this by giving you compliments in the hopes that you return them.
He may also be subtle about it by telling you how grateful he is about something you said or did for him in the past. He may in essence praise your internal fortitude and persona.
When he does stuff like this, he may be hoping that you realize that he sees a lot more in you than simply your physical attractiveness.
Also, this ex’s friend that you are falling for may actually try to gauge whether you like him by bringing up your ex in conversation. He may find subtle ways to ask you about your ex or mention him, just to see how you react.
If you notice that he tends to bring up the subject of your ex from time to time or quite often, he may be trying to see how you respond emotionally just so he knows whether you have truly gotten over him.
He may hope that you have.
