Yes or no?
So, you went on a few dates and BAM – a couple of months later, you two were in a relationship. Don’t scrunch up your face if this is nowhere near your story! Truth be told, you don’t have to be in a relationship to find this article necessary. Maybe you’re plucking petals while toggling between “He loves me” and “He loves me not”, or maybe you’re just his friend who’d like to analyse your relationship. Whatever be your state, we have just the thing to help you out!
If you’ve been with him for some time, you’ll probably relate to this: announcing that you’re in a relationship on Facebook may seem like a big deal, but it’s what comes after the initial days of cheesiness that shapes your bond! It’s when you finally start being comfortable with each other that your relationship takes a new meaning. If you’ve ever asked anyone how you could tell if your partner felt comfortable with you, chances are that you’ve been answered with an “Oh, you can tell!”. Now, while we don’t blame them for being vague (read on to know why), we don’t believe in giving vague answers! So, without further ado, here are 10 cute things a man does when he’s really comfortable with you.
1. Cuddle cuddle
In this day and age and with the hookup culture, having sex is not really proof that he feels comfortable with you. What you’re looking for is his tendency to cuddle. Granted, not all guys like cuddling. But it takes vulnerability to cuddle up to someone, and he can never do that unless he’s all warm and comfy!
2. Kiss you anyway
If you’ve ever read an article on the do’s and don’ts of kissing, you probably know how kissing someone after you’ve had, say, onions are a big no-no! And Indian diets don’t exactly go well with this piece of advice. But it’s when you ditch this precaution – on realising that he couldn’t care less – that you understand that he’s reached that phase!

3. Dad jokes
Let’s face it – not every man has Biswa Kalyan Rath’s sense of humour. But the upside to having a guy who cracks dad jokes is knowing that he’s comfortable enough to do so! When you realise how far he’s come from conversing with caution for fear that he’d come off as stupid, take it as a sign!
4. You get to touch his thing
No, stupid, not his thing! We’re talking about a prized possession of his. Whether it be his car, a PlayStation, or his collection of invaluable Pokemon cards, every guy has something that few people have access to. If you get to touch his stuff, know that you’re the chosen one!
5. He goes on rants
Have you ever felt like he talks too much? While that can be pretty annoying, it can also be a sign that he trusts you! Most guys are very calculated about their conversations for fear of sounding annoying. But as time goes on and he chucks those inhibitions, you’ll know that he trusts you!
6. Walks around naked
Yes, we know that he shed his secrets when he slept with you, but walking around naked is very different from doing the dance with someone. For a man to be comfortable with the idea of your eyes sticking to his body while he walks around, he needs to trust you.
7. He takes time off
This might throw you off a bit. Although you might think that him taking breaks from you indicates that you bore him, that might not be true. Once a guy is comfy – thereby, not afraid of you misunderstanding him anymore – he’ll find a healthy balance between his personal space and your relationship.
8. His kisses tell
You can tell a lot about how a guy feels about you simply by his kisses. Once he reaches that stage in your relationship, he’ll make no bones about casually being affectionate. If you’re just having random conversations, and he kisses your hands or pulls you closer when walking to plant a peck on your forehead, know that he’s comfy!
9. Pillow talk
If you’ve entertained attempts at pillow talk from him, you know that there’s something about those that make you feel closer like never before. It’s at this stage that you understand what your friends meant when by “Oh, you can tell”!
10. Sex is much simpler
Remember when the two of you felt the need to prepare for sex with the showers, the dreaded razors, and the fancy clothes? While it’s common for people to be so critical of their own bodies, once he’s comfortable enough, he’d stop being so conscious himself and you’ll find yourself following suit. And before you know it, he’ll want to sleep with you even if you haven’t showered in days!
That’s it, folks! Make sure you keep an eye out for these signs!
