10 Subtle Body Language Signs He Secretly Likes You

Can a guy’s body language and specific movements be a good enough sign that he secretly likes you? Can you analyze his behavior when you’re in his company to get an idea of how he feels for you? By now, it’s clear that men take time to show their feelings.

Men wait for the right timing while giving away different body language signs, hoping that you’ll understand that they like you without them having to say it out loud. While men decide to take things slow and wait for the right moment to come, women go through war with their minds.

Women keep overthinking all of the possibilities because they aren’t sure what they’re supposed to do next. Because men take forever to openly express what they’re feeling, women end up thinking that the men they’re after see them as friends and nothing more.

What if we told you there was another way you could spy on their feelings and know the truth before they say it directly? Body language signs are an easier way to find out if a man secretly likes you or if you’re stuck in the friend zone.

What’s great about body language is that he doesn’t think of it the way he thinks about saying the right words. Instead, he unconsciously does something as a reaction to the feelings that he’s hiding deep inside. It means that Mr. Right’s body language can tell you more about his feelings than his words.

Buckle up because we’re heading out on the road to find out the answer to the burning question of whether or not the man of your dreams secretly likes you. What are the subtle body language signs that reveal he secretly likes you?

10 subtle body language signs he secretly likes you

10 Subtle Body Language Signs He Secretly Likes You

1. He looks away every time you look him straight in the eye

You must think that looking away certainly can’t be a sign that he likes you, but you’re wrong. We usually look away from people when we’re hiding something. We’d say that it’s an instinctive move that our body makes every time we don’t want our secret revealed.

And he’s doing exactly that because he’s hiding his feelings from you. He’s not ready to talk about everything that’s going on in his head. So, he’s using his body as a shield between you and his hidden feelings. After he realizes that he looked away, he’ll get back on track and focus on your eyes.

You might not see that, but he doesn’t want to act suspicious. Still, the damage is done as you’re already aware of his initial reaction.

2. He follows you with his eyes around the room

Although he instinctively avoids direct eye contact with you, he’ll also try to follow you with his eyes when you’re not in his proximity.

You know that feeling when you sense that someone’s looking at you? That’s how you’ll feel when the two of you are in the same room. You may be standing in the opposite corner of the room, but his eyes are still fixated on you, tracking your every move.

Your movements and subtle gestures enchant him, and he absorbs it all. He’s fascinated by you and feels the need to carefully observe every action you make. He’ll try to get himself back and move his attention away from you, but he’ll fail.

It makes no difference if you’re surrounded by a crowd of people, he’ll still follow your body wherever you go. It’s one of the body language signs that show that he secretly likes you, even though he might not be ready to admit it yet.

3. He smiles every time he looks at you

You know how your mouth involuntarily smiles every time you’re surrounded by people you care about? The corners of your mouth go up, and your lips form a subtle smile that whispers, “I love to be around you. Keep talking because it feels amazing to listen to your voice. I could do this forever.”

When a guy secretly likes you, his body language will send you a sign through the way he smiles. You can simply walk by him and you’ll notice that his lips instinctively form a smile that he’ll try to camouflage as soon as he realizes what he’s doing.

He can’t help himself. That cute, innocent smile just happens uncontrollably. It reveals all the feelings he’s been trying to hide.

4. He checks himself when he sees you coming

We always want to look our best in front of the person we like. We girls want guys to see us wearing our best-looking outfits, perfect makeup, and freshly brushed flower-scented hair. Believe it or not, men want the same thing (minus the makeup and flower-scented hair part).

So, pay attention to what a guy is doing when you’re approaching him. He wants to look his best when he sees the woman he likes. Is he fixing his hair, checking his shirt, and pulling his clothes back and forth so everything looks spotless? If the answer is yes, then congrats!

You’ve witnessed one of the body language signs that men give away when they secretly like you. He wants you to see him in the best light and that’s exactly what he’s trying to achieve by fixing his appearance.

5. He plays with his hands

Another body language sign that a man secretly likes you is if he keeps playing with his hands most of the time he’s with you. Again, he’s a little flustered and he wants to hide that from you so you don’t see it.

He’s afraid that his hands might start shaking if he doesn’t keep them occupied in a place where you can see them. He gives them a job, something to do so they don’t give him away. He might be snapping his fingers, nervously knocking at the table, or picking at his cuticles.

No matter what he chooses to do to calm his nerves, the message is still the same. Your presence evokes a range of feelings in him and he’s afraid that he might do something he’ll regret. Your beauty makes him look for different ways to hide how anxious he feels.

And his fidgety hands are a perfect coping mechanism aimed at hiding his feelings for you.

6. His tone of voice changes

It’s another body language sign that screams, “I secretly like you and your presence makes me nervous.” Whether deep or unusually high, his tone of voice will keep changing when he’s around you.

Sometimes, you might get a feeling that his tone of voice is higher than it normally is. He’ll do that unknowingly to get your attention.

Other times, it might go deep. That’s what happens when he wants to appear as a real, masculine man so he can make you fall for him. He knows that women are attracted to the deeper tones of voice because they sound more manly.

And that’s why his body will unconsciously try out this tactic, hoping that it’ll win your heart.

7. He gets red in the face

Although it isn’t warm in the room, his cheeks go pink when he’s close to you. He would love to control that, but every time he’s near you, his face reacts by blushing. He’s hiding something from you and his face is giving him away.

He knows that he can’t cover it up. He knows that you’ve seen it, but he can’t do a thing to stop himself from blushing. His body language has given you a sign that he secretly likes you and it’s completely out of his power.

8. His pupils dilate when he’s near you

When you’re speaking with a person you like, your pupils dilate – according to science. It’s like you’re trying to absorb everything they are. It’s like you’re trying to memorize every single detail about them.

Not even your guy who’s trying so hard to control his emotions is powerful enough to control the way his pupils enlarge the moment he sees you. If only he could do something about it.

9. He raises his eyebrows

Another sign that a guy secretly likes you is if he raises his eyebrows every time he sees you. Similar to pupils, it’s a way of getting a better view of the one standing in front of you. He’s looking at your beauty and he wants to remember every single detail about you.

That’s why his eyes are wide open, catching every single move that you make. If he misses out on something, he’ll feel as if he failed himself and missed the opportunity to learn more about you.

10. He leans in when you talk

It’s natural for him to lean in. Although there are no loud sounds that could make it hard for him to hear your words, he naturally moves toward you as if he doesn’t want to miss anything.

It’s a clear sign that a guy likes you and wants to absorb every single word you say. He does all of this because he wants to remember clearly what you’re talking about. He wants to hear your sweet voice and to appreciate that tiny pause that you make every time you end a sentence.

He wants your words etched in his mind so he can think of them whenever you’re not around.
