It’s nice to meet someone with whom you can just be friends, right? He shares your interests, he’s fun to be around, and you just have this chemistry that makes it so easy to be friends with each other. All your other guy friends seem to only befriend you long enough to get you in bed with them. With him, things are different. He’s different. You think to yourself, “With a friend like him, who needs a boyfriend?”
Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but as the infamously wise Harry of “When Harry Met Sally” says, “Men and women can’t be friends, because the sex part always gets in the way.”
It may not be today, and it may not be tonight. But somewhere along the way, the thought of you in bed will come creeping into his head, and he’ll like the idea so much that he’ll do everything to make it happen. In fact, he may be doing it right now, and you’re just absolutely clueless about it. [Read: Are guy best friends nothing but trouble for girls?]
Open your eyes, ladies, he probably wants to sleep with you
Here are 16 signs that can help you figure out if your guy friend really wants to have sex with you.
#1 Keys to his place. Has he been telling you that you can crash at his place anytime, and you may as well just have the keys to his place. In fact, you know where he keeps his spare keys, as he tells you, “Just in case.” He says he’s concerned about your safety and he doesn’t want you to ever go home alone and in the middle of the night. He thinks it’s better if you spend the night at his place, but you should wonder if he would really just let you sleep on the couch.
#2 Lingerie. Remember when you guys were hanging out at the mall and you passed by a lingerie store and he joked about how those nighties in the window would look good on you? He may have said this jokingly, but the truth is, he definitely thinks about you in your lingerie.
#3 Feely friend. You thought chivalry was dead, but your friend proves you wrong. He helps you out of the car, holds you at the small of your back to lead you through doors, kisses your cheeks when you see each other, and hugs you. That’s it. He’s too touchy feely and when he hugs you, you feel him lingering and can’t help but wonder if he’s making out with you… using his arms.

#4 Eyes on you. More specifically, your boobs. Or your butt. Or all of your curves. The thing is, when you talk to him, you never see him looking you in the eye. You notice a slight glance at your face, but most of the time, he lustingly looks at your humps.
#5 Nights out. He asks you to hang out at night more than any other time. Since you’ve met him, you’ve been going out to dinner. When you ask him to have lunch, instead, he tells you he’s unavailable or he convinces you to move it to dinner, so he has a better chance of sleeping with you.
#6 Drinking buddies. Yes, you are great drinking buddies, and he makes you feel like you can get drunk because, whatever happens, he’s got your back. In fact, you never need to ask for another round, because he’s so eager to buy you one after the other, after the other… [Read: 10 sneaky techniques guys use to get into your pants]
#7 Alone time. You have mutual friends, but most of the time, you find yourself hanging out with only him. He calls you to ask if you want to meet “them” at your favorite watering hole, only to find him alone, after all. The bottom line is: he does everything to get you to hang out with him alone.
#8 Movies. He always tells you, “There’s this movie you just gotta watch.” He knows you like noir movies, especially the weird and often morbid French ones, and he indulges you because he says he likes them too. Fat chance. He just wants you to watch movies at his place to maximize hook-up possibilities, even if it means he has to sit through the queasiness of watching gross, brutal things with you.
#9 You wore it best. You know he’s not gay, and from the way he smirks at fashion magazines and preppy-looking men with their man-buns, you know he isn’t the least bit interested in fashion. However, when it comes to the clothes you wear, he remembers them all. He knows the LBDs that look great on you, the ones that most definitely hug your curves, and he isn’t shy about letting you know it.
#10 Your sex life is his business. He is updated about your love life—and your sex life. After all, he’s a great listener. He listens to you whine endlessly about your dates, and he gives great advice… until he asks about how things are going in the bedroom, which you obliviously tell him, too, because he’s like your BFF anyway.
#11 His sex story. Now that he knows about your sex life, he tells you about his sex life, as well—to the point that he sounds braggy about it. He tells you how he is in the sack and how women respond to him. Does he want to impress you, or even turn you on? Most likely. [Read: 10 clear signs your male BFF is secretly trying to seduce you]
#12 Innuendo. You know him as the jokester in your group of friends, so when he starts to jokingly tell you to hook up with him, you laugh it off. When he kids you about how great you’d look in his sheets, you playfully punch him in the face. Often, he goes too far, but you let it slide because you secretly enjoy the attention.
#13 “Accidental” sexts. Aside from slips of the tongue, he also “accidentally” sends you sexts. Who does that? Well, if it’s once or twice, it’s barely acceptable. However, his accidental sex-laced messages to what he claims is “this woman he’s seeing” are getting more and more frequent, and he doesn’t even apologize about it.
#14 Scouting together? He tells you he’s your wingman, but he is actually just wanting to know what kind of guy you like or find hot. He sees those guys at the bar you say you like, and in his mind, he’s comparing himself to them, thinking he’s waaay better.
#15 He isn’t seeing anyone. When you ask him if he’s seeing anyone, he says he is. However, he’s always with you and, albeit rarely, with your friends. He keeps updating you about his whereabouts, so you wonder if that mystery girl really does exist. Most likely, he’s just waiting for you to notice him.

#16 Your friends can tell. When your friends tell you that something’s not right, you’d better listen to them. You may be totally oblivious to your guy friend’s attempts to get you to have sex with him, but when everyone else can see it, you better look more closely.
Besides, your mutual friends know both of you well. If he has designs on you, he might have mentioned it to one of them, and news may have traveled. For all you know, he is your best guy friend, and if you had things your way, you’d want him to be part of your life platonically, with absolutely no sex involved.

However, reading the signs above and finding yourself ticking off each item as it applies to you, you know that he may just be around to get laid. Thinking about this can be enough to drive you crazy, especially because you both have a great friendship going and you wouldn’t want to ruin it by sleeping with each other.

Although the signs above are a great start, the only way you can find out for sure if your friend really does want to have sex with you is to ask him. If he’s really your friend, he won’t be offended and he’ll tell you, “No, I’m not trying to have sex with you, you little cray-cray.”
