And dating can be a real pain, leaving you feeling like a train station. Meanwhile, if a man is inviting you for some quality time with his family, friends, or both, then he wants them all to meet you because he sees you hanging around. He may offer jokes, background information about himself and his ties to you, and listen intently to what they have to say. No one wants to date, or even be friends with, someone they have absolutely nothing in common with. A guy looking to get serious will find that common ground, and use it as a stepping-stone to establish a more meaningful connection with you. When people are single, there may or may not be a few random flirty situations at hand. However, when men find themselves really liking one specific girl, all the other girls are lost in oblivion.
