25 Signs That A Guy Likes You
You don’t have to be a mind reader to find out if a guy likes you. However, good observational skills is a plus, if you want to figure out whether a guy has a crush on you or not. Certain signs are obvious. Some are subtle. Well, if you are clueless about what to look for, here are 25 signs that a guy likes you:
1. He makes himself available to you
One of the obvious signs that a guy likes you is when he does everything to make himself available to you as much as possible. He might cancel some important appointments or skip on his favorite football game just to spend some time with your persona. If you can notice that he is always there for you, he promptly responds to your text messages, emails and calls, then his heart might carry that flame!
2. Watch him lean towards you
If a guy likes you, he will lean forward, toward you during your conversations. This can be a subtle movement that happens gradually, or it can be an “in your face and personal space” sudden maneuver. His lean can be interpreted as his desire to get closer to you both emotionally and literally. Also, if a guy likes you, he will rarely turn his back toward you.
3. He actively engages you into his life
If a guy likes you he would want to spend as much time as possible with you. He might propose you to do different things together. He won’t want to wait for the occasional hangout.
4. You are a real diamond in his eyes
This might sound like a cliche, but the eyes are windows to the soul. One of the obvious signs that a guy likes you is when his eyes are always on you when you are around. Sometimes, you might find him staring at you. Now and again, he might turn away, because he is embarrassed. Other times, he will make a prolonged eye contact with you and smile. Be aware, you are probably more than a friend for him.
5. He becomes “touchy feely”
If a guy likes you, he will make a lot of unnecessary physical contact at every opportunity he has. He can’t stop himself from showing his affection through his touches. These touches can be subtle like a brush on your arm, back or knee. His objective is to make you aware of his physical presence and his affection.
6. A smile is worth a thousand heart pitter-patters
If he smiles at you, it’s one of the signs that he likes you. People rarely smile at individuals they do not like. To determine whether his smiles mean that he wants to become more than friends, you will have to observe the frequency of his smiles in your presence. If he smiles at you more than he normally does at others, this might be a good sign. Also, look for him to smile at you every time you lock eyes with him.
7. His body points to you
If his legs, feet or toes are pointing towards you during your conversations, his subconscious is directing him to you. This is another sign that a guy likes you, because people point their feet in the direction of where they want to go or who they are interested in pursuing.
8. He raises his eyebrows
When you say or do something amusing, he will raise his eyebrows. This flirty motion often happens if a guy is interested in you. Alone, this sign could just be a friendly gesture, but when grouped together with other signs, raised eyebrows can signal his deep interest in you.
9. He compliments you
Compliments are verbal signs that a guy likes you. He might compliment your appearance or your brilliant sense of humor. A guy who really likes you will give you sincere compliments and never generic ones. His compliments will be unique and will reflect his attitude toward you.
10. He gets a little bit nervous
If a guy likes you, he might become somewhat nervous around you, because he might be worried about making a good impression. Signs of nervousness include bouts of clumsiness, unexplained laughter, sweaty palms and fidgeting. If you can notice that he gets nervous or feels awkward, help him relax by throwing some cool, ice breaking joke.
11. He struts like a peacock
Men love to show off in front of ladies they like. Guys use showing off as a way to get your attention. Now you know.
12. Listen to his words
If a guy instead of talking about himself all the time shows interest in you, asks you about your likes, dislikes, hobbies and interests, it’s a sure sign that he likes you. It’s no secret that men love talking about themselves. When a guy is interested in someone else than his own persona, and moreover, he mindfully listens to what you have to say and he is ready to talk about whatever you want – it’s a great sign, lady, he might be into you!
13. He is interested in the things you like
If a guy is actively showing his interest in the things you like, it’s also one of the signs that he likes you. This could be watching your favorite movie, shopping in the mall or going orange picking on a Saturday morning. He wants you to share your interests with him.
14. He laughs at your jokes
It doesn’t matter if your jokes are as dry as toast. If he likes you, he will laugh.
15. He likes your old Facebook posts
This might seem silly, but in this day and age, people live on social media sites. You can learn a lot about a person only by looking at stuff they post on their Facebook page. If a guy starts to click that “like” button on your Facebook profile – it’s a sign that he might like you, because it shows that he is trying to get to know you better. He is actively seeking out your likes and dislikes. He might also be reading all your insightful (and lame) Facebook posts. He wants you to know that he is interested in you.
16. He is not afraid of a little PDA
PDA includes holding hands in public or kissing while surrounded by a crowd. This is a slightly different version of the “touchy feely” sign, because a guy’s intentions are different. Now, he is doing these things not to get your attention, but to make a declaration of intent to get his relationship with you to the next level.
17. He electrocutes you
Feelings have to be mutual in order for chemistry to ensue. In other words, sparks can’t fly if only one end is lit. A sign of a good chemistry is when every time you are around him, everything feels more exciting. Some people call this phenomenon “butterflies in the stomach”, it feels like electricity is surrounding the two of you, it feels magic!
18. His friends know about you
If you are important enough to him that he talks about you to his friends, it’s another great sign that he might have a crush on you.
19. Your presence changes his demeanor
Take note of how he reacts when you enter a room. If he suddenly changes his behavior the minute he sees you, this is one of the signs that he likes you. He can change his behavior by instantly halting his laughter with a group of friends to get your attention or he could start speaking loudly in an effort to be the center of attention to impress you.
20. He’s a protective alpha male when it comes to you
If a guy likes you, he will start to act protective of you. This is one of the obvious signs that a guy likes you and it can manifest in different ways. For example, he will give you his jacket when you shiver from the cold or he might block you from being run over by a rowdy crowded space by walking in front of you to clear the path. He might also act annoyed when you interact with other guys. He wants to protect you from other guys’ advances. Plus, he is just plain on jealous.
21. He takes notices and remembers things
If a guy likes you, he will remember how you take your coffee or what your favorite TV show is. He’ll remember your birthday or what you were wearing the last time you met. He takes notices and remembers things, because he wants to get to know you better and make your life a little easier if he can.
22. He’s not afraid to be vulnerable around you
If a guy is not afraid to do something that is considered weak or feminine while he is around you, it’s a good sign. He shows you his true self without fear of being ridiculed or teased. He is comfortable around you. He trusts you. He likes you!
23. He starts to mirror your gestures
On a subconscious level, people start to copy gestures, actions and verbal inflections of the people they like. If a guy likes you, he will mirror your gestures without realizing he is doing it. Take note!
24. He is honest with you
Here is another sign that a guy has a crush on you: he will openly share with you his past experiences and tell you what he wants for his future. He will share his hopes and dreams. Nothing is more honest than that.
25. He won’t play games
One of the main signs that a guy likes you is that he won’t be obnoxious to you and he won’t play “hard to get”. You will know where you stand with him. If a guy really likes you – he won’t play games. With him, you’ll get it all without asking.
