Let’s take a look at this from the opposite perspective because it makes the answer that much clearer.
As a guy, I never ever, ever call up a guy friend of mine or text him, or for that fact even dare mention to him,
“I was thinking about you and just decided to tell you.”
With that said – When he says he is thinking about you – it means he wants to see you again… among other things.
Like how something reminded me of you and I thought if I tell you, it’ll be a romantic gesture. It will show you I’m definitely interested.
For some guys they’re “fishing” for a certain response which would reveal how you feel.
If you answer “Awww that’s sweet.” we probably see it (unless we’re already intimate) as being just a friend.
If you answer back with a clever flirt we assume you’re interested in being more than just a friend.
No matter how you look at this question when a guy says he is thinking about you it means he’s interested in something deeper. Of course how deep depends almost entirely on the situation.
It’s our little way of testing you, or getting you to reveal how much you miss us or would like to see again.
As a guy, under normal “dating” circumstances I don’t think about women I don’t want in some way. Maybe it’s a relationship. Maybe it’s to see you again. Maybe it’s just to pleasure myself although I probably won’t be telling you about that until there’s a deeper connection.
Men are typically action-orientated but we do think about what we’re going to do. It doesn’t mean we’ll act on it but it does mean we’re considering more. And if that includes you our thoughts can lead us to imagine a plan for the future.
All things aside…
- When a guy wakes up thinking about you he’s feeling more than just attraction.
- When a guy texts you in the middle of the night to tell you what’s on his mind and it’s you, he’s looking for you to confirm the attraction.
- When a guy can not get you out of his mind he WANTS to be with you. He may be considering a greater commitment.
When a guy feels the need to tell you he is thinking about you, it means he’s more than just “interested” in you, he also wants to know or find out if you’ve been thinking about him too.
