Is there a guy who is making you feel special now? Maybe he has not expressed it yet, but it may seem like he is making some moves to win your heart. He is just probably shy and is only waiting for the right time to formally court you.
Formal courtship starts when the guy directly expresses his intention to a woman. However, not all men are brave enough to be straightforward about what they feel, so some start by doing actions that will give the girl they like a hint. Courting may have informally begun then.
Now, what are the signs that you are being courted?
1. He messages you day and night.
If a guy does not miss a day greeting you in the morning, reminding you to eat your lunch, and sending a “goodnight” message before he sleeps, then it is something to think about. Why is he so thoughtful about you?
2. He calls you for hours.
A guy would not call a girl regularly and spend hours talking to her over the phone for nothing. It means he enjoys talking to you, and he wants you to know that.
3. He visits you at home.
If he insists on visiting you at home, or if he loves hanging out in your house, you should wonder why. Then, whenever he visits, does he bring some foods for your family?
4. He befriends your family.
Aside from bringing food whenever he goes to your house, a guy who is interested in pursuing you makes other efforts to get close to your family. He plays computer games with your brothers, treats your sisters with ice cream, and starts conversations with your parents.

4. He gives you presents.
Another clear sign that he is making some moves with you is when he gives you gifts. He may start with one chocolate bar with a sticky note of encouragement. Then soon, he could be giving you bigger presents, such as a bouquet of flowers, a teddy bear, and even a necklace.
5. He takes you home consistently.
If he has a car and offers you a ride home every after work because your house is on his way, then it could be a simple friendly gesture. However, if he does not have wheels, yet he is willing to wait for you outside your office every afternoon or evening, then it is something more meaningful.
6. He asks you about your interests.
A man who wants to make you special shows that he is interested in your life. He does not get tired asking about your passions, family, likes, dislikes, and other interests. This is also one way for him to get to know you better.
7. He offers you help.
A person courting you would want you to think of him as a knight-in-shining-armor. Therefore, whenever you are bombarded with tasks from work or you are struggling with a concern of some sort, he would willingly lend a hand. He will help you find a solution to your problem.
8. He puts his best foot forward every time you meet.
Have you ever noticed that this guy always looks his best—like he is impressing a prospect client—whenever you meet? Maybe you remember him to be simply plain when everything was normal between you, but now he is always wearing a polo-shirt, his hair is wax-styled, and he smells irresistible.
9. He asks you to watch a movie with him.
He never says it is a date, but he asks you to a movie on Saturday afternoon. He tells you to bring a friend if you want, but it is also fine if you do not. It is his treat!
10. He asks you on a double date.
His friend invites him to a double date and he says you are the first person to cross his mind. In short, he asks you to be his date. And while he waits for your answer, you notice drops of sweats form on his forehead.
11. He surprises you.
When a man is courting a woman, he does unpredictable cute things to impress her. He could show up in front of your door when you least expect him, or he might visit you at your workplace and bring you lunch.
12. He checks on you always.
Being thoughtful about your needs is one sign he is courting you. He encourages you to take care of yourself better by reminding you to eat on time and get enough sleep. Whenever you are sick, he would immediately visit you and volunteer to be your nurse.

13. He serves you.
You are being courted if he serves you in every little thing. For instance, he orders your food and gets you a glass of water. He opens the car door for you and brings your stuff too.
14. He does not mind spending money for you.
He is obviously courting you if he spends money on you. He always treats you to dinner or a cup of coffee. He sends you flowers and buys you chocolates. He is also willing to treat you and your friends to a holiday getaway. Then, sometimes, he even offers to pay your bills.
Do Not Assume Unless Expressed
Even if these signs are all present, still it is not safe to conclude that this guy is courting you seriously. Until he has confessed his feelings to you and asked for your permission for a formal courtship, do not be emotionally attached to him.
Beware of cocky guys who are fond of leading girls on but have no intention of pursuing them. One could make you fall through his sweet words and actions, but once you confess to him, he would just apologize for the ‘misunderstanding’.
To keep your heart safe from being broken, just be careful not to give your trust to anyone so easily. Yes, enjoy the friendship and the attention, but be sure to guard your heart.
