Dating is pretty challenging, but the differences in communication between guys and gals makes it that much more difficult.
When you have a feeling something might be going on but aren’t quite sure, you might say to yourself, “I wish I had a list of ten ways to know if he likes me!”
Fear not, humble reader, the tips below will give you plenty of clues as to whether or not he is pursuing you. And, once you recognize the signs, you will quickly be able to move from “I wonder when” to “Call me, maybe?”
His Smile is Always On
You might feel like this is a little ridiculous, but it is the first – and most basic – clue anyone likes you. Humans naturally seek out this easy-to-give symbol of friendship, as it helps us to feel comfortable in a group. When it lasts a bit longer than you might expect, he is probably so taken with you he cannot help himself.
He Wants to Know Everything About Your Day
A guy who is into you will be incredibly interested in even the smallest details of your life. Drawn like a bear to honey, he will hope to be included in whatever is going on – to offer support, to laugh with you about the ridiculous, etc. – as a means of developing a deeper bond. The foundation of any relationship is a willingness to share whatever comes to mind, which is why he asks all sorts of questions to show you he likes you.
His Sense of Humor Shines Through
Over and over again, surveys have said women really want a guy to make them laugh. Men, in all their desperation to be found attractive, will often go out of their way to turn everything into a joke just to see you smile. Is he crossing his eyes and talking in a silly voice? Has he been discussing the embarrassing things his mom used to say? Anything he can do to show you he’s funny will be on the table.
He Stands Near You Often
No matter how old a guy is, he will still pull the oldest trick in the book: figuring out how to be close to you in any situation. Remember when the cute boy used to sit next to you in English class? He will keep doing this regardless of the situation, though it might look a bit different. If you’re at a dinner party, for example, he will probably choose to sit right across from you – anything to create some proximity.
His Eyes Land on You a Lot
You might not like the comparison, but pretend you just saw a gorgeous pair of shoes in a store window. Wouldn’t you keep looking at them every time you walked by? He will do the same thing to you – though more because he is struck by your beauty than because he is hoping to get a good deal on you. Guys are incredibly visual, so when a woman catches their eye, they can’t help but keep looking over at her.
He Finds Ways to Touch You
Now, don’t rush to any conclusions by the headline. He isn’t attempting to make the moves on you – yet. If you want to know if he likes you, then you’d be wise to pay attention to how often he puts his hands on you in any manner. Does he gently place his hand on your shoulder to get your attention? Has he attempted a side hug upon seeing you? He’s just trying to close the personal space gap as frequently as possible, a classic sign he is interested.
His Stories Talk About What He Does Well
If women were to be completely honest, this would be the thing about guys flirting with them that is the most annoying – but that will never stop men from doing it! You might feel like he is attempting to brag about his accomplishments (he is), but in many cases it isn’t because he is self-absorbed. He is doing his best to impress you because he is insecure, a little secret he doesn’t want you to know.
He Has Gifts for You
Animals are notorious for presenting those they love with tokens of their appreciation and humans are no different. Though you might immediately connect the idea of presents with jewelry and fine clothes, it won’t start with that – unless he is obscenely wealthy, that is. If he likes you, he will find little ways to help you out. Have a runny nose? He’ll bring you a box of tissues. Out of printer paper? It won’t be long before he shows up with a fresh ream. It may not seem like much of anything, but it’s a major hint about his feelings for you.
It Seems Like He’s Dressing Up More Often
Have you ever seen a male bird and compared it to the female of the species? They are almost always more colorful and pleasing to the eye. Male peacocks are notorious for showing off their large plumes of feathers in the hopes of luring a suitable mate. Female cardinals watch their bright red partners swoop from branch to branch. A guy that likes a girl will do the same – say, putting on a nice sweater instead of wearing an old T-shirt – to show you her how well he cleans up.
He Goes Out of His Way to See You
The biggest way you can tell a guy likes you is by the number of times he crosses your path. Does he pop up at the same pizza place you like to go to? Has he asked what your plans are for the weekend? Is he a regular at your desk in the office? He is trying to find out how to meet up with you elsewhere – even laying eyes on you for just a few minutes is important to him. He can’t resist you!
