The sad fact is, this is a huge waste of time and energy because deciphering whether or not a guy likes you is incredibly simple. In fact, I can sum up this article in one sentence: Every day, on Facebookin the comments section, in the forumin my inbox … day in and day out I hear variations of the same question: Does he like me? How does he feel about me? Is he committed to me? It really is as simple as that, but I know people love to look at signs, because that just makes it more tangible and easier to see.
Does He Like You? He might not be saying anything with his words, but his body language will let you know exactly where he stands. Men are visual creatures. Next, he makes eye contact and stares at your face when talking to you.
His eyes may bounce for your eyes to your lips and back again. He will also lean in when talking to you and angle his body facing you. He may also preen a bit when he sees you. He may fix his hair, straighten his tie, straightening his shirt. This is another reflexive thing we do because… well, he wants to look his best for you. Make sure to read this article for the exact body language signs that mean he likes you. We covered this a bit in the section on body language cues, but it bears repeating and going into more depth.
When a guy likes you, he will look at you. When talking to him, he will most likely make eye contact.
This is the most intimate you can be with a person without actually being intimate.
If you want to do a test, try to hold his gaze for four seconds. What if his eyes are shifty and all over the place? You can also pay attention to his pupils. Studies have found when people look at something or someone they like, their pupils will dilate. Finally, look at what he does after making a joke or telling a funny story. Pay attention when he talks to you. Does he talk about himself? Does he tell you about his accomplishments or achievements?
If so, he likes you and is trying to prove himself a worthy candidate. Also, watch how he reacts when you say things. Does he lean in closer, maybe gently stroke your back? Or does he look away and shift uncomfortably as if looking for an excuse to exit the conversation? A guy who does like you will welcome all intrusions with open arms! Pay attention to all signs of physical touch. The point is, he will find ways to make your bodies meet.
Also, pay attention to how he reacts when you touch him. Does he tense up and back away, or is he warm an receptive? The caveats here are he might be a shy, awkward type of guy and maybe feels extra nervous when touching a girl he likes. Or he might be a playboy who welcomes female physical affection in any form with wide open arms.
Again, look at the full picture, not the tiny pieces. When a guy likes you, you will have a different status in his life, and he will treat you differently.
He may act a little protective toward you, like holding your hand when walking down steep stairs, angling his body to almost shield How to tell if a guy likes you or just wants to hook up quiz when walking through a crowd, and just looking out for you.
Pay attention to the way he acts with other people and compare that to the way he behaves around you. Even the most confident guy will get a little nervous around a woman he likes. Just take silent comfort in the fact that you make him nervous. Again, take it into context. But if the nervous guy gets extra nervous around you, then he probably likes you.
And he uses those interests as a means to get to know you better. He may dig a little deeper and ask more questions. This is another major sign he likes you. When we like someone, we want to know everything about them. Mirroring is a subconscious thing we do when we like someone. It basically means he copies your actions. A good way to show reciprocal interest is to mirror him. Touch your face when he touches his, shift your stance when he angles left, cross your legs in the same direction as his, etc.
Him wanting to be in our close vicinity is another major sign. Remember in elementary school when a guy would pull your pigtails to show he liked you? Well, not much has changed except the ways of teasing have become a little more refined. But we never really grow up all that much! If a guy likes you, he will playfully tease you. He may playfully punch your arm or playfully tease you for a stain on your shirt or something else silly and innocuous like that. Just beware of a guy who gets a little carried away with the teasing.
