Signs he likes you through his behavior and words

Reading a guy’s body language and the small signs he throws your way can reveal whether he really likes you, or if he’s just bored and having a bit of fun to pass the time.Signs he likes you through his behavior and words

The next time you bump into him, sit near or walk past him, pay close attention to his behavior. In all probability, you’ll have your answer in no time.

If the big ‘does he like me’ question rings in your mind all day and the suspense eats away at you, use these signs to read his mind.

1. He changes instantly

If a guy likes you or is interested in impressing you, his behavior will change almost instantly as soon as he sees that you’re around.

If he’s laughing, he’ll suddenly sober up. Or if he’s sitting quietly, he may get loud or try to get your attention.

2. You catch his eye

When a guy likes you, he’ll always watch you from far away, especially when you’re with your own friends and oblivious to anyone else who’s around.

If you’re laughing at a joke, turn around quickly and catch his eye. You may just make eye contact and find him staring at you – probably with a big smile plastered on his face! This means he likes you, but is hiding it for some reason.

3. The final glance

If you’re wondering how he feels, watch out for these subtle signs that he likes you. Does he make eye contact with you just before he steps out of a room, no matter how occupied he is or who he’s with?

Big chances are, he wants to take one last look at you, and he’s secretly hoping you’re looking at him too. He’s hoping he can lock eyes with you, even if it’s just for one more second.

4. He faces you

No matter where you sit down at an event or a gathering, you’ll always find him positioning himself in a way that gives him a chance to stare at you directly without craning his neck.

He may sit down facing you, or sit away from you at an angle, but no matter where he sits, you’ll see that he always turns his body toward you so he has a clear view.

5. He shows off a lot

He indulges in antics or does something funny when you’re around him. And he always looks at you first to see your reaction! It doesn’t matter if he’s playing a game, pulling a friend’s leg, or just hanging out in the cafeteria.

If he does something eye-catching or worth a look, he’ll look for a sign to know that you noticed him in his moment of glory.

6. He tries to get closer to you

When a guy likes you, he’ll want to be in close proximity to you, even if you don’t interact. Does he stand next to you in the elevator? Does he walk closely past you, even if there’s a lot of space around?

He’s probably just dying to hold you in his arms one day!

7. It’s not just glancing, you catch him staring a lot

Do you find this guy staring at you constantly? Or does he look away quickly as soon as you turn your head in his direction? That’s a good sign and a big giveaway that he is interested in you.

8. He gets annoyed

If you really want to know if a guy likes you, try flirting with another guy when he’s around. If he truly likes you, he may get annoyed watching you talking sweetly with another guy. And at times, he may even walk away.

9. He loves a surprise

Does the guy’s face light up with a happy grin as soon as he sees you out of the blue?

If a guy likes you and suddenly sees you when he least expects to see you, he’ll involuntarily smile. So if you’re wondering, does he like me, all you need to do is watch his expression to read the signs of whether he likes you or not.

10. He tries to smooth talk you

The way he speaks with you is different from the way he speaks to others. When a guy likes you, he’ll speak more boldly with you, or seem more interested in what you have to say.

He uses a deeper voice to show off his masculinity – even if he’s only asking you to pass the ketchup!

11. He’s being teased by his friends

This is a completely obvious giveaway that he’s smitten with you already. When you walk into the same room where he’s hanging out with his friends, keep your eyes peeled and watch their behavior.

If his friends know that guy is into you, they may glance towards him, punch him in the arm, or even smile at him. He’s probably getting teased by his friends because you’re around.

12. He stands tall

When a guy likes a girl, he’ll want to show off his best side. Does the guy stand up straight or stiffen up when you walk past him?

He’s probably instinctively trying to show off his best physical assets to you, with the hope of impressing you.

13. He subconsciously copies your movements

If you’re sitting across from a guy you like, you’ll instinctively copy his behavior without even realizing it. So, if he sits back, you sit back. If he takes a sip of water, so will you.

It’s the same way with guys too. When a guy likes you, he’ll start to copy your behavior, and he won’t even realize he’s doing it.

14. The sexy look

When a guy stares at you and likes you, his intention isn’t just to get an eyeful of you. He also wants to impress you with his intense, sexual gaze. When the guy stares at you, take a quick glance at him to read his body language.

If he rubs his chin or his face slowly, or if he clenches his jaw and stares at you with a macho expression, the chances are, he’s trying to *look cool* for you!

15. He’s constantly groomed

Does this guy look like he’s groomed himself just moments before you walked into the room?

If a guy’s constantly worried about his appearance or tries to be on his best behavior each time you’re around, he’s definitely trying to make a good impression on you.

16. He asks about you

When a guy likes a girl, he can’t help but try to find out more about her by asking around. Have any of your friends told you that a guy was asking about you, or trying to know more about you? You’ve hit the nail here, and maybe he’s just afraid to make the first move.

This guy is surely smitten with you, and wants to get to know you in a more-than-just-friends kind of way.

17. You bump into him often

Bumping into someone you know now and then could be a matter of sheer coincidence. But how would you feel if you kept bumping into the same guy in different places all the time?

It could be fate twisting your arm into getting to know him. Or, maybe that timid guy is keeping an eye on you, and waiting for the perfect opportunity to approach and say ‘hello.’ There’s a good chance that it’s the latter.

18. He comes out and tells you

This is the easiest way to find out how he feels. He’ll just tell you. If you’re blessed with this, well, then the rest is easy from there.

Of course, many guys are scared of rejection, so you’ll probably need to continue reading.

19. He stares at your mouth

There’s something called the ‘flirting triangle.’ No, it’s not where ships disappear but rather where a guy looks at you.

If you notice his eyes staring at your eyes, and then your mouth, and then repeating the cycle, well, he’s doing the flirting triangle. He’s clearly interested in more than what you’re blabbing about. He wants to kiss you.

20. The full body scan

Usually, one of the clearest signs he likes you is when he scans you from the bottom up. Men are very visual and by scanning you, they’re checking you out. If they continue to scan you, they can’t get enough of your body.

21. He peacocks when you’re around

When they’re interested in a woman, men always try to act like the alpha male. We like to call it ‘peacocking.’

They have to show you that they’re the better option than the rest of the guys out there. So, if he’s trying to show you that he’s a “man,” then he’s into you.

Of course, you have to be aware that there’s a fine line between a guy just trying to get your attention, and a narcissist who’s only interested in himself.

22. He listens

There are guys that will just say, yes” to everything you say. But if he remembers small details of stories you’ve told, he’s been listening. And what does that mean, ladies? He likes you.

Men don’t like to waste their time listening to people they’re not interested in.

23. He asks questions

He wants to know everything about you. Where you went to school, how many siblings you have, and he’s not asking you these questions because he has to. He’s asking you because he wants to know more about you.

If he’s taking the time to get to know you on a personal level, he likes you.

24. He’s different around you

If he’s completely different around you and his friends, that may be the answer to your questions. He could even be more talkative or quiet around you – it doesn’t matter which. What matters is that he’s not acting 100% natural around you because he’s trying to impress you.

25. He leans in

Maybe your story is really interesting. It probably isn’t, but never mind, the guy is leaning into you like you’re telling the most fascinating story.

If he’s leaning in, he’s trying to show you he’s attentive and interested. That’s because people tend to lean toward people they like. If he’s leaning back, it doesn’t mean he dislikes you – maybe you ate garlic.

26. He pays

Friends don’t pay for friends. If a guy likes you, he’ll pay for your drink or dinner. It’s more of a pride thing, he wants to show you that he can take care of you. So, if the guy pays–he likes you.

27. He can’t stop his smile

Is he always smiling around you? Even when you’re not talking? Is the guy literally glowing from the inside out? Maybe it’s the shot of vodka you two just had, but we bet it’s because you’re beside him.

28. He completely ignores you

OK, this one is annoying, but sometimes guys think it’s a good idea to ignore a girl so that she comes to him instead. He could also be ignoring you because he doesn’t actually like you, but if there are other signs with this one, then probably not.

But seriously, if he’s doing this because he likes you, he’s immature.

29. He’s protective of you

He walks you to your front door or asks you to text him that you’re safe. He could just be a gentleman. However, usually, friends wouldn’t take it to that level. If he’s protective over you, it’s because he cares about you.

30. Jealousy

Other guys are checking you out, and you see him seething with jealousy. If he didn’t like you, he wouldn’t care if a guy was hitting on you or asking you out for dinner. Why be jealous? He would be happy.

So, if he’s jealous, he has feelings for you.

31. He teases you

You know the old saying, if a boy teases you, he likes you. Well, it’s kinda true. If a boy teases you, it’s most likely that he’s trying to cover his feelings for you.

Try to turn this teasing into flirting if you want to move things forward.

32. He starts the conversation

He has no problem coming up to you to talk or sending you a good morning text. By him taking initiative, he’s showing that he’s interested in you.

If you’re the one starting every conversation, it’s probably a one-sided relationship.

33. He often compliments you

It’s normal for men to compliment women. However, in this case, he notices the small changes you make. Maybe you colored your hair a shade darker – a guy who likes you notices.

34. He doesn’t look at his phone

You may be wondering if he even has any friends. He does, and his phone probably has a list of missed calls and texts. But it doesn’t matter, those things can wait, because he’s with you.

If he’s not pulling his phone out every five minutes, he’s interested in spending time with you.

35. He’s planning ahead

A guy that likes you will say something like, “Oh, we have to go there” or “ Let’s try this out sometime.” Yeah, he’s not saying those things to lead you on. He’s using those lines because he’s planning ahead of time.

He sees you in his future.

36. You’re number one

He should be studying for an exam, but instead, he’s out for coffee with you. He could have gone to the bar with his friends but wanted to watch a movie with you instead. He’s making you a priority.

He has other things to do, believe us, but you’re more important.

37. He touches you

Unless you’re really good friends, men don’t usually go out of their way to touch a woman, especially if they don’t like her. So, if he’s into you, he may hug you frequently, put his arm around you casually, or maybe place his hand near the small of your back to guide you through a crowded bar.

These all are signs to look after if you’re trying to figure out if a guy likes you. He wouldn’t lay a hand on you unless he’s into you!

38. He does what you like

If he finds out you’re into jazz or you like watching figure skating, he may suggest that he keeps you company.

He may hate jazz, but if you’re going he’ll sit through whatever he has to, just as long as you’re there.

39. He texts a lot

If you just hung out with him and he’s texting you right after you left, he’s into you. Though you may have gone home, he’s not done having a good time with you. If you’re staying up till 3am texting, he’s into you.

40. He doesn’t mention other women

If he wanted you to get the hint that he doesn’t like you, he would talk about other women. However, if he never mentions another girl, that’s because he doesn’t want you to think there’s anyone else.

41. He suggests a one-on-one

If he only wants to hang out with you in a group, he’s avoiding one-on-one contact which is not a good sign. But, if he’s asking to hang out with only you, well, this is a no-brainer and gives you the answer to your question – does he like me?

No guy would spend one-on-one time with a girl he’s not interested in. Take this as a sign that he’s trying to let you know he’s available to go out and he wants to spend time with you, in case you’re interested.

42. He makes a beeline for you

When you are in the same room together, does he approach you right away? This is because he can’t wait to talk to you and wants to spend as much time in your company as he possibly can.

43. He seems kind of strange whenever you are with him

Believe it or not, guys can get themselves all worked up about a girl they like too! If he starts acting differently whenever you hang out, it’s probably because he is trying to make himself seem more attractive.

Does he get louder and start showing off and making jokes, or does he go all nervous, quiet and shy? Keep a lookout, and if you find your crush’s behavior changing, it probably means you’re having a serious effect on him!

44. He buys you a drink

Simple but effective. If a guy asks you if you’d like a drink, it’s because he wants to show you that he’s chivalrous.

If you like him, make sure you say yes! This might seem like an obvious one for telling if a guy is into you, but it’s usually true.

45. He asks you for your number… and then calls you

If a guy asks for your number, it’s a surefire way to know that he is interested in you. He obviously wants to get in touch with you to keep that connection going and hopefully meet up with you again.

Of course, there are some guys out there who take those digits and then disappear into the night. So if he calls or texts you, then you’re on to a good thing for sure!

46. He wants to be social media buddies

If he’s adding you on Facebook and following you on Instagram, that could be a sign that he’s trying to tell you he likes you. He is clearly interested enough in you to want to get to know you better, find out more about you, and daydream about you while checking out your profile pictures!

It also shows that he has nothing to hide.

47. He asks if you have a boyfriend

No, he isn’t just nosy! He wants to know whether you’re single or not! Duh!

48. He gets all fidgety

Another telltale sign of nerves here – if the guy in question is getting all twitchy around you, it’s probably because he thinks you are pretty dreamy, and you’re making his stomach go all fluttery! If you notice this, you’ll know a guy likes you.

49. He acts all macho

If the guy you’re crushing on suddenly goes all alpha male when you are around, it is probably his way of showing off. He wants you to see him as manly and protective. This is his way of doing that, even if it might actually make him look like a bit of a doofus.

50. He remembers the little things

That movie you said you wanted to see – he gets tickets for it. Your favorite restaurant – he’s taking you to it. That random necklace you mentioned you liked weeks ago – he bought it for you.

This guy is paying attention to everything you say and going all out to impress!

51. He arrives early and stays late

Whatever you have asked him to do, whether it’s a dinner date or helping you out with a project, he always gets there before you and stays after everyone else has gone home.

He clearly wants to spend as much time getting to know you as he possibly can. Awwww.

52. He goes quiet

A guy might have a crush on you if he shuts down once you walk in. We know this doesn’t help his case, but he may just be quiet because he doesn’t know what to say. If you like him back, give him some time and help him feel comfortable around you.

53. He compromises

Even if he doesn’t like the movies you like or the food you like, instead of arguing to get his way, he will meet you halfway or give in, so you’re happy.

Maybe he isn’t into sushi but is more than happy to go to your favorite sushi spot just to see you smile. When a guy does this, it’s a great sign he is into you.

54. He’s all over your social media

Not only does he follow you on social media, but he likes all your posts, watches all your stories, and maybe even comments. If he is sending you memes and tagging you in funny videos, he is totally into you.

He wouldn’t be thinking of you when mindlessly scrolling through his feed if he didn’t like you.

55. He stumbles over his words and gets sweaty palms

Just like you, when a guy is into you, he gets nervous. He may get flustered or stumble over his words. Or he may talk too fast.

There are so many signs of nervousness, from sweating to clammy hands and even gas. If he shows these signs, he is probably into you.

56. You feel it

Sometimes you just know. A woman’s intuition is nothing to ignore.

57. His friend says so

Has a guy ever come up to you in a bar and told you his friend over yonder thinks you’re attractive? If so, that is a definite sign he’s into you.

Guys sometimes send their friends to do their dirty work.

58. He compliments your interests

It’s one thing for a man to compliment your appearance, but if he says you have great taste in music, movies, or hobbies, he’s really into you.

If he wasn’t, he wouldn’t bother wasting time trying to find out what you like, let alone compliment you on it.

59. He ignores other people when you’re around

It’s really easy to tell who’s into you when you’re in a group setting. If he sees you walk into the room and leaves anyone he’s talking to, just to come to find you, he really wants you.

Trust us, he’s letting you know he’s not interested in someone else but you.

60. He’s on his best behavior

When you’re hanging out with him in a group with his friends and they’re all making crude jokes, and you notice he’s being quiet and just laughing along, he’s into you. He doesn’t want to do or say anything that might offend you—in any way.

61. He laughs at all your jokes

Your jokes aren’t all funny—especially if you’re just not a funny person in general. But if he laughs at most of the things you say that aren’t even all that funny, he is thinking about asking you out.

62. He divulges intimate details about his life

No guy is going to tell his deepest darkest secrets to just anybody. When guys tell you personal information about themselves, it’s because they definitely like and trust you.

63. He raises his eyebrows when talking to you

It’s a proven scientific fact that we tend to raise our eyebrows when we are with someone we like. So watch his facial expressions the next time you’re talking to him.

64. He sits with his legs wide open

This symptom of interest is far more scientific than the others. When a male likes you, his primal instincts tell him to show off his best “assets.” Science tells us that his crotch is apparently what us women want to see.

We’ll leave you to decide whether you agree with that one or not!

65. He does the plan making

If he’s initiating when you’ll see each other next, where you’re going, and what you’re doing, he likes you. No guy goes to all that trouble for no reason.

66. He always seems cheery around you

He’s going to be in a good mood around you if he has feelings for you. So if you find yourself telling him that he’s “always happy,” it’s because he’s into you.

67. He tickles you

This is quite a surprising sign if you’re trying to figure out if he likes you.

Tickling indicates that he wants to touch you, hear your laugh, and see that adorable smile you’ve got. All of which are huge signs he’s into you.

Of course, this one is likely to only be the case if he knows you well enough to actually touch you in that way. Otherwise, it’s just creepy and a little inappropriate.

68. He asks about your day

Guys aren’t really ones for small talk. But if he’s asking you about how your day has been, he wants excuses to hear from you—and maybe he really does care!

69. He asks personal questions

When a guy is just being polite, he’ll ask you questions, like “what’s your job,” “where are you from,” etc. But if he delves deeper into your personal information. that’s an important sign he likes you and wants to know you better.

70. You feel you can be yourself around him

The thing about having a crush is that you never feel comfortable around him; you’re always nervous. But with this guy, you feel yourself.

You can laugh, be goofy, and just have a good time. This is a huge sign that he’s into you because he’s going out of his way to make you comfortable.

71. You’ve met his friends

Meeting his friends is a big deal. No guy will purposely introduce you to his friends if you’re just a fling. This guy wants his friends to meet you, and it’s no small gesture.

This is the final move before things get a little more serious.

72. He’s asked you about your feelings toward relationships

He’s had “the talk” with you, and wanted to know how you’d feel about being in an exclusive relationship. Well, if you’re still wondering if he likes you, you need to get your ears checked!

73. He doesn’t send you booty call texts

If a guy only texts you at night to see if “you up?” then he’s looking for a booty call. But is this guy texting you during the day and staying in touch all the time? If so, there’s more to this interaction than just sex.

74. He’s keen to help when you ask

A guy who is into you will jump at the chance to make an effort in helping you with something. But, he won’t assume you need help.

If you say you need help moving or that the copy machine is busted, he will help without complaint, but he won’t just take control if you don’t need it.

75. He encourages you

A guy who is into you wants you to be happy. If you mention that you’ve always wanted to go skydiving and you get the opportunity, he will encourage you to do it.

A guy who isn’t into you will follow his own agenda.

76. He lets you know his future plans

It’s not that he’s about to drop down onto one knee and propose, but he’s gently letting you know what he wants in his future. This is simply because he’d like you to be a part of it!

77. He offers to buy you things

If you’re out and you see a cupcake you think is cute, he offers to get it for you. He’s not being presumptuous or flash here, he simply wants to treat you because it makes you smile. That’s one of the best ways to find out if he’s into you!

78. He treats your belongings with respect

Put simply, he treats you, your belongings, and anything connected to you with the utmost respect. He’s on his best behavior and he wants you to know it.

79. His friends try to leave the two of you alone

He’s no doubt told his buddies that he likes you, and they’re doing their best to give him the space he needs to woo you! If you’re all out together and suddenly you find that you’re alone, it’s probably because they’ve strategically moved away!

80. His actions match his words

He wants you to know that you can depend on him. When he tells you he’s going to do something, he does it. He doesn’t let you down or leave you wondering.

That’s how to tell if a guy is into you – he’s keen for you to know he’ll always be there for you.

81. He makes time for you, even if he’s tired

He could be dog tired, but he’ll still sit and talk to you on the phone for a while or help you when you ask. He doesn’t want to refuse because he’s worried you’ll take it the wrong way.

Plus, he just wants to be around you, tired or not.

82. He drunk dials you

This is not a booty call, it’s completely different. If he’s drunk, he calls you. Why? Because when we’re drunk, our walls are down, and we act on our emotions.

You’re on his mind whether he’s drunk or sober, but when he’s had a few drinks, he can’t stop himself from reaching out.

83. He defends you when someone insults you

He’s not going to sit around and let someone talk trash about you. He’ll stand up for you and let them know that they’re out of order.

Of course, you don’t want him fighting for you, but it’s probably not out of the question, depending on what the person has said.

84. He takes care of you when you’re not feeling well

He might bring you some chicken soup or your favorite cookie. Either way, he’ll do what he can to make you feel better and comfort you when you’re sick.

85. Hugs last just a fraction longer than they should

A regular, platonic hug lasts just a couple of seconds and that’s it. However, one of the signs he’s into you is that hugs last just a little longer. You can feel it; it’s like he doesn’t want to let go.

86. He takes a deep breath when he sees you

You might notice him taking a quick, deep breath. This is a subconscious thing because it makes his shoulders look broader and his waist smaller. Evolution tells us this is apparently an attractive thing to women.

87. His voice changes into a slower, sweeter tone

He’s relaxed around you and he feels able to let his guard down. This is likely to happen after a few flirting sessions and once he’s got to know you better.

He’s over the deep voice, peacocking behavior and now he’s chilling. He feels comfortable around you.
