22 Things A Guy Does When He Really Likes You

Being in love with someone special is one of the best things in life. And in this world of emotions we often ask ourselves: Does he really like me?

What few women know is that men give off some signals that are virtually impossible to ignore when they really like you.

That’s exactly what we’re going to see here today!

In this quick article, I will show you some clues that every man gives when he wants to have something more.

Things Your Partner Does When He Really Likes You

1. He leans toward you during a conversation.

People tend to naturally lean toward people they like in conversation. 

If the guy you like tends to lean his face closer to yours while he’s talking or listening to you talk, it’s a good sign he might be into you.

2. He turns his body towards you in the environment you are in.

If his body—including shoulders and hips—is leaning toward you and facing you, that’s a good sign. But if he usually points your body in a position opposite to his, it’s a sign that he might not be into you.

3. He finds simple ways to compliment you.

People tend to find little ways to compliment someone they’re interested in. 

So if a guy keeps genuinely complimenting everything from your eyes to your creative efforts, that could be a sign that he’s genuinely interested in you.

4. He makes eye contact with you.

Eye contact can be a sign of attraction, but be careful with this one: 

Some people are good at making eye contact with anyone they talk to because they care about making the people around them feel important. 

But if your crush tends to look you straight in the eye and stare, that could be a sign that there’s something else there.

5. He looks at you more than others.

Even if he makes eye contact with everyone he talks to, it’s another story if you keep catching him staring at you in the act even though you’re not talking.

Stolen looks are a classic sign that someone is more interested in you.

6. He pays more attention to you when you are in a group.

When you’re in a group, he still finds a way to make small moments happen with you, whether that’s asking direct questions or just always responding to things you say. 

He’s always laughing at your jokes, looks at you even when you’re laughing at someone else’s joke, or makes small side conversations with you whenever he can. 

7. He seems attracted to you.

In general, he seems to be energetically attracted to you – as if his focus, body language, and general energy seem to be focused solely on you. 

Even when he’s talking to someone else, he still seems to have the vibe that he’s paying attention to you.

8. He wants to spend time with you one-on-one.

If this guy is a friend of yours, someone in your office or living room, or someone you just met at a party sometimes, and he keeps trying to find ways to be alone with you, that’s a sign that he’s trying to connect with you on an even more personal level. 

While this seems to be just the beginning of a friendship, it could also mean that he has greater intentions for you.

9. He finds ways to touch you.

He’s always finding little moments to try to make some sort of physical contact with you, whether it’s putting his hand on the back of his head when he’s going to hug you, leaning on your shoulder while he laughs, or running his hand through your hair.

10. He plans dates whenever he gets a chance.

If you meet a guy on a dating app, it can be hard to tell if a guy has strong feelings for you or if he’s just doing what he always would. 

The key is knowing if he’s asking you out whenever he can and making plans. This is usually a sign that he really likes you and wants to continue connecting with you.

11. He talks to you after the date.

If this man is someone you’ve just met, then you can tell he’s really interested in you if he keeps texting you after the first date.

He might text you the next day saying he had a great time, or he might send you a meme or video related to something you talked about, or he might just get in touch asking you to set up the next date.

12. He is consistent.

Is he texting you whenever he can and trying to keep in touch with you?

Communication consistency is a big indicator of interest. Someone who is genuinely interested in you is not going to disappear for long periods of time only to reappear without any explanation.

13. He responds to your messages quickly.

Some people just don’t check their phones often, text slowly, or are super busy, so just because someone doesn’t text you back right away doesn’t mean they’re not into you. 

But if a guy always responds to your messages too quickly, they might be trying to indicate they’re interested in you.

14. He initiates a conversation on social media.

Liking your posts and leaving comments doesn’t always mean a guy has a crush on you, but you have to notice if he’s the one who always initiates conversations with you on social media. 

Not only will they like your posts and comment on them, but they will also share things with you and will do everything they can to maintain communication

If he is always replying to your Instagram stories or trying to chat on WhatsApp, asking you questions and keeping the conversations going with you, these are signs that someone is really trying to create a connection with you.

15. He keeps the conversation going.

In general, whether over text or in person, notice if he’s trying to keep conversations with you. 

This means that he will always ask a follow-up question or offer detailed answers to your questions, and he never responds with just one word or “lol” alone.

16. He turns red when he’s around you.

Do you notice that his face or skin turns red when he is around you? 

This happens to everyone when we’re excited or getting a shot of adrenaline, and this is a common sign of attraction. 

17. He seems to get a little nervous.

If a guy is usually pretty laid back or outgoing with his friends, but with you, he gets a little nervous and stutters a little in his words, this could be a sign that he likes you and is getting a little nervous trying to impress you

18. He laughs a lot when he’s with you.

Is he always laughing out loud and heartfelt – the kind that makes his face go all screwed up? 

Or does he smile a lot when he’s with you – with that kind of warm, intimate smile that hits his eyes? Laughing and smiling are ways to establish connection, harmony, and intimacy with other people.

19. He doesn’t pay attention to distractions.

When you’re around, he never looks away and gets distracted by looking at his cell phone or TV.

He gives you his undivided attention and may even go out of his way to remove barriers or distractions that might get in the way of his time with you.

20. He takes the lead.

While there are universal ways for people of all genders to show romantic interest, there are some common cultural scripts that men — particularly those dating women — can use to show they’re attracted to someone. 

“These scripts, rooted in patriarchy, are based on gender stereotypes that men are more active and women are more passive and assume that men will take the lead,” she explains. Because of this, some men can be particularly proactive about showing that they like a girl.

21. He respects your leadership.

Of course, not all men will follow stereotypes that say they have to make the first move. 

Many of my clients, regardless of gender, want to feel equal when it comes to dating and are just as likely to show their interest first as they are to take the lead from someone else,”.

So even if he’s not the one making a move, you’ll know a guy likes you if he responds positively when you make a move.

22. He speaks to you directly.

Here’s the problem with trying to find out if a guy likes you: Sometimes looking for small signs will never give you a complete and accurate picture of what’s going on. 

Some guys will do all of the above with their friends, while others will like someone but won’t do any of the above.

Some people may be less able to express their attractions as openly as this,”.

For example, my shy clients sometimes struggle to show their feelings for a crush, even in subtle ways. This means that while they like someone, it can be harder for the other person to say. When in doubt, talk about it!”

If you’re not sure if a guy likes you but is hiding, ask him and let him tell you directly how he feels. It sounds scary, but it definitely doesn’t have to be! 

A simple “Hey, I think you’re really cool, and I’m kind of into you – are you into me?” it’s casual, direct, a little attractive and also non-threatening. If not, at least you know! And if it’s a yes, now the fun begins.
