#3. He is willing to help
Whenever you need to get something done and you discuss it with him, if his immediate/automatic response is “so what are you going to do?” Without him offering to help in any way, then he just is not in it for the long term. A man who is into you and wants to start something serious would try to find out how he can help when you are in a fix. Not ask you without being concerned what you want to do. Men like to be men by helping their women and easing their stress. If he cares and is for real, he would offer to help.
