Have you ever wondered whether he likes you… or he doesn’t like you. There is a very common question that comes in girl’s mind that how do you know if a guy likes you? So, you are really into a guy or you have a crush on someone, but you don’t know that he feels the same for you. Well, I will tell you what most boys do when they like a girl, they hide that they like you or want to appear cool. There are several subconscious things guys do, that are impossible to hide. It is a natural thing a guy do when he feel attraction for a girl.
In school days, it was easy to figure out that a boy liked you or not. If you liked a guy then you sent him a note like, ‘do you like me’ or ‘do you love me’? He sent you ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on the same note. But in the adult world, it is quite difficult to know whether a guy likes you or not. Still, there are some little things that can show his feelings like his messages, mannerisms and body language.
Ways to Know if a Guy Likes You:
1.) Notice His Body Language
By noticing his gestures, you will get to know whether he likes you or not? There are some signs of body language that you can check to know if a guy likes you.
- If he is making a lot eye contact or looking at you, that is a sign. His eyes may be raised while watching you.
- If he is leaning towards you that is a major sign of interest.
- Watch his feet, toes, legs, hands etc. If they are angled or pointed towards you that show his subconscious interest in you.
- When he first sees you, he grooms himself. He straightens his tie, fix his shirt or smooth down his hair. While you are near, he starts thinking about his appearance because he wants you to find him smart and attractive.
- Check out his sitting position. Is he sitting with open legs or putting hands on their hips these signs tell that he is trying to impress you.
2.) Eye Contact
Eye contact is the most interest thing to notice about a guy or a girl. Many boys will try to secretly watch you when he thinks you are not seeing. So, if you catch him by looking away that is a good sign. More confident and assured guys will make and hold eye contact. That’s true. If you want to know whether he is attracted to you or not then try this: Look at his face for 3 to 4 seconds and then look away. If he makes eye contact with you then he is definitely interested.
3.) Listen to What He is Saying
When a guy likes a girl then what he does? It is very simple that he talks about himself. Many guys feel the need to prove themselves to a girl, especially when you talk about another guy. One of the best ways to know how interested he is in you is to notice his body language during the conversation. Check his interest in what you are saying. It doesn’t matter for him what you say, it is how you say it that can tell you about his level of interest. So try one thing to check his interest. Go close to him by barely touching his shoulder with your shoulder and say something softly. If he is interested then he will move his head closer toward you or will touch you back and maintain eye contact. If he is not interested then he will take a step back or be very unresponsive. A really disinterested guy will try to move you out of his personal space.
4.) Gauge His Interest to Know if a Guy Likes You
Touching someone and being touched is an important way of gauging how interested he is. The other important way to figure out how he feels is to see how he reacts in touching with you and being touched by you. If guys are interested then they will find excuses to touch you like touching your hand when he laughs or giving you hugs or brushing your leg with his without moving it away. So this is the best way to know if a guy likes you.
5.) Notice Him If He Treats You Differently
If a guy shows his interest in you then he might start behaving differently towards you. He might start to behave protectively toward you, like putting his arm around the back of your chair, shifting his chair closer to yours and leaving his jacket on the back of your chair. Another way to gauge his interest is that they start flirting with other girls to see your reaction. Watch him when he is flirting with another girl. If he keeps looking at you to see your response that means he is doing it to get a reaction or response out of you.
6.) Check for Signs of Nervousness
Does he look nervous when you are near? Guys are not nervous when they are not interested in women. If he is nervous around you, that is a good thing. There are some signs that show his nervousness like nervous laughter, fidgeting, deep breaths, sweaty palms or looking away when you watch him.
7.) Notice His Friends Closely
If a guy likes you then he might have told his friends. So when you are around him, his friends start teasing him and will give you hints that he likes you. Notice them when you are with him and his friends. If they smile when they see you that means they know that he likes you.
8.) Watch Him If He Imitates You
Copying each other’s actions is a sign of mutual like. If he imitates your gestures that means he is probably interested in you. The best way to let him know that you are interested too is to copy his gestures as well. Like, smooth your hair when he does his, touch your face after he touches you and so on.
9.) He Gently Teases You
Pay attention, does he teases you? If so, that means he is attracted to you. However, if he teases every girl then it might be his style. But it is not necessary that when he teases you only then he has got feeling for you. If a guy likes you, then he may also start punching at you playfully.
10.) He Playfully Punches Your Arm
Playfully punching your arm is the way for him to act manly, but he still get to touch you without letting you know that he likes you. This is the best way to know if a guy likes you. If you don’t like it then say it immediately.
