Does he turn towards you, and not angle his body away from you? Are his feet pointing towards you? Do his movements mirror yours, for instance, if you cross your legs, does he cross his?
All of these small things are “tells” and signs a guy is interested in you. They tell you that he likes you.
4. Requesting contact and social media details
He asks for your phone number, if you can friend each other on Facebook, or he direct messages you through your Instagram account.
All of these are signs a guy likes you.
He wants to open more channels of personal communication with you. So if he asks you for your cell phone number, expect a flirty text soon! If you friend each other on Facebook, he’ll begin to message you there.
Is he commenting on all your Instagram and Facebook posts? That’s a good sign that he is into you.
5. Being direct
Another sign a man likes you is when he asks you straight out if you are in a relationship.
“Do you have a boyfriend” is a pretty good indicator that he is interested in dating you. He is assessing the situation to see if you are free and available.
When you tell him no, you might follow up with “But I’m very open to interviewing new candidates for the position!” or some other playful invitation to show that you are interested in him, too!
Wondering how do you know a guy likes you?
If a guy likes you, he’ll find all sorts of subtle ways to touch you; he just can’t help it.
It might be touching your arm as he talks to you, enforcing a point he is making. He might brush a stray hair out of your face. He might take your hand, pretending to be a palm reader.
When a guy is interested in you, he has a primal need to touch you, in an appropriate fashion.
If his touch is inappropriate, be sure to tell him that that is not ok. Even if you like him, he shouldn’t be allowed to access your body in any way that makes you feel uncomfortable.
7. Remembering your conversations
When a guy likes you, he hangs on to every little thing you share with him. After he talks with you, he goes over your conversation in his head. This keeps you close to him.
So don’t be surprised if, when you meet again, he’ll follow up on something you said the last time you talked.
It’s his way of showing that he listens to you, and that is a great sign for your future relationship.
8. Offers to help you out
If a man likes you or if a boy likes you, he would want to show you how supportive he is.
Remember, decades ago, when a boy would offer to carry a girl’s books home from school? (How cute was that type of flirting?)
Nowadays, his offer to help you might be more IT-orientated, like helping you set up a new app or game on your phone, or configure your new computer.
Or, if you are having an issue with a class, he might offer his expertise and help tutor you.
9. Introduces you to the people important to him
A guy who introduces you to his group of friends is clearly into you.
He is proud that you are hanging out with him and wants to show you off to his mates. Does he invite you home to meet his parents?
He’s got a serious crush on you!
These 9 tips on how to tell if a guy likes you would surely help you read the signs a boy likes you and make your romantic journey more playfull.
