Here’s a truth that everyone will agree with: liking someone is complicated.
You might think you know all of a man’s feelings for you, but then… they have weird attitudes that turn all that certainty into doubt.
That’s why figuring out exactly how to tell if a guy likes you can help you read between the lines and figure out exactly where the two of you are right now.
But the truth is, knowing if a guy likes you isn’t always as easy as we’d like it to be, so knowing how to spot the subtle signs that a guy likes you is essential!
So how do you know if a guy likes you enough to become someone special in your life?
Here are some surefire signs that he likes you that can help you decipher how he really feels!
How to know if a guy likes you :
1. He is touching you.
Men are generally a little more physical than women. So when a guy tries to touch you when it’s not necessary, it’s usually a great way to know if he likes you.
When he wants to emphasize something and touches your hand or accidentally touches you with his knee, these are usually small signs to show his true feelings.
2. He remembers little details about you.
If you’ve met him a few times and he’s memorized some details from your previous conversation, it’s no wonder.
When he likes you, he’ll pay more attention to what you say, because he may be trying to find deeper meaning and connection.
3. You two are friends on social media.
Guys don’t send friend requests to girls that they aren’t their friends, or family, or don’t like.
More accurate social media signals that he wants to go to the next level are liking your photo or swiping to your DMs.
4. He makes eye contact with you.
Your new crush may be trying to make direct eye contact with you to indirectly say he likes you. If he keeps eye contact with you, he’s definitely interested. On the other hand, if he breaks eye contact with you and keeps looking around the room, he might not be interested in you and you might go back to texting other people.
5. He puts effort into the conversations you have.
If a guy likes you, he’ll make an effort to talk to you.
What might start off as an awkward conversation can turn into a great chance for you to get to know each other.
Sometimes guys don’t know what to say to add to the conversation, but in the end, they’ll show they’re interested in you by the way they listen carefully to what you say, and by your tone of voice.
If his voice seems to crack when the two of you are talking, he’s unlikely to be interested in you. But if his voice is deep and present, and asks questions about what you’re saying; he’s probably liking you too.
6. He is using “alpha” body language.
Your new man wants to show you that he’s the pack leader who can take care of you. If he stands taller, shrugs his belly and shoulders back, and walks confidently, that’s a great sign he likes you.
7. He asks if you have a boyfriend.
Now it’s pretty obvious that if he asks you, “Do you have a boyfriend?” he’s clearly interested in having something more with you
But the truth is, a lot of guys aren’t going to be that direct. Instead, they will ask indirect questions to find out.
Maybe he says he’s single, hoping you’ll say “me too” (for example).
8. He gets jealous when you talk to other guys.
If you’re talking to other people, whether online or in person, he might start looking at you and wondering what’s going on.
A guy who isn’t interested in you won’t mind when you’re talking to other guys.
Don’t worry, as soon as you signal that you only have eyes for him with a cute, pretty smile, he’s sure to be all yours again.
9. He wants to help you with your problems.
Men are naturally great problem solvers.
And when it comes to the person they’re falling for, they want to find a solution to every problem they hear about.
If you bring up a problem you have and he likes you, he’ll likely scan his own brain for solutions.
A guy who likes you goes above and beyond. They will want to be your knight in shining armor that saves the day.
10. He watches your reaction to making a comment or joke.
It’s great to notice this tip when you’re in a group of friends.
If he makes a comment to the group, or tries to tell a joke, and then looks at you to see your reaction, that’s a great sign he’s into you! This shows that he is seeking your approval or trying to impress you.
11. He is informing you of his future plans.
If he’s talking about his plans for the future that goes beyond just a job promotion, then there’s a chance he actually likes you!
Because he could potentially see you in his future and is trying to figure out if you fit his plans.
12. He changes his behavior when you are around.
Men react to stress differently than women.
But if they behave a little differently than usual, such as talking more or less, then it’s possible that he likes you, but doesn’t know how to show it.
13. He dresses to impress.
This one is simple. No girl wants to date a guy who looks like a slob and doesn’t care about his appearance.
If he puts a little extra effort into his looks or wears fancy cologne when you’re around, it’s reasonable to assume this guy likes you!
14. He offers to buy you things.
A great way to tell if a guy likes you is if he offers to buy you dinner or to support you when you’re in need of money.
He just wants to take care of his girl and keep (you) happy!
15. His friends leave you two alone.
If you arrive at his house and his friends leave the two of you alone, there’s a good chance he’ll like you.
Because he’s obviously told his friends this about his feelings for you and he’s looking for some alone time with you.
16. He is protective.
Like women, men are usually very territorial when it comes to their partners.
So if a guy shows up or his friends don’t give up on teasing him, don’t be surprised if he comes to your defense. It’s not a very peaceful thing, but it’s a big sign of his true feelings for you.
17. He is your best companion when you are sick or not feeling well.
Biologically speaking, men have always wanted to help those closest to them.
If your new man offers to bring you some soup, honey syrup with propolis, or medicine when you have a cold, that’s a surefire way to tell him he likes you!
