Does he like me? If you’re asking yourself that question, you’re about to learn the answer.
Here are the signs that will let you know if he’s serious about you:
1. He wants to get to know you better
A guy who likes you will want to learn all about you, and this is why he will often ask you all sorts of questions.
He will listen carefully to your answers and even have follow-up questions.
I liked a certain guy, but I wasn’t sure if he liked me back, until I noticed how interested he was to learn more about me.
If you want to know if he likes you, just notice if he is trying to keep the conversation going or trying to end it.
2. He tries to impress you
A man who is trying to impress you will start showing off in front of you, in all sorts of silly ways.
Now that I remember all the silly things a guy I liked did to impress me, I realize it was silly of me to wonder if he actually liked me.
A man who likes you will brag in your presence. He could brag about anything, but it’s often about his money.
He will buy expensive things just to impress you, but that’s not the only way he’ll show off…
He’ll even get aggressive with other guys, as long as you’re watching.
3. He always has a smile on his face
Just as I was wondering if he wanted me, he showed up and the moment he saw me, he had a huge smile on his face, and I knew the answer.
A guy who likes you will always smile when he’s around you, and laugh at the things you say.
He wants you to know that your presence makes him happy, but he also can’t resist smiling because he really is that happy to see you.
I can’t actually believe I wasn’t sure if he liked me, now that I remember that big smile that would light up his face whenever he saw me.
4. He flirts with you
When a man flirts with you, it’s pretty clear that you don’t have to be unsure about whether he likes you.
He will give you a lot of hints and analyze your reaction.
He will probably also joke about the two of you becoming a couple, but trust me, he’s not joking.
All he wants is to see how you would react because he’s wondering the same thing you do – “Does she like me?”
5. You make him feel like a hero
The new psychological concept called ‘the hero instinct’ is much talked about these days.
If you make this guy feel good about himself, like he is providing you with what you need and protecting you, he will surely like you.
Learn more about the hero instinct, and whether he already likes you or not, trigger it, and he surely will.
The need to feel like a hero is rooted deep in men’s biology, and when you make them feel that way, they want to be with you all the time.
6. He is nervous
As I already told you, just like you’re wondering, “Does this guy like me?” he’s wondering, “Does this girl like me?”
The truth is, it’s even harder for him because men are expected to make the first move.
He knows that he should ask you out, and wants to, but that can seem scary and this is especially true if he isn’t sure that you like him.
Make it a little easier for him by hinting him that you’re interested.
7. He mirrors you
When a person mirrors you, it means that they subconsciously imitate you.
He might start talking similar to you, by using the same slang or words, or speaking at the same pace as you do.
You could also notice that he leans back or forward at the same time you do.
If he’s copying your behavior, speech pattern, or gestures, you can be sure that he’s into you.
Looking at the guy I liked was much like looking in the mirror, and once I learned about mirroring, I didn’t have to wonder anymore if he wanted me.
8. His friends let you know
Of course, his friends aren’t going to tell you directly that he likes you, but they’ll be so obvious that you’ll figure it out.
They will talk him up, telling you what a catch he is, and try to find out if you like him.
His friends will even give not so subtle hints that the two of you should go out sometime.
That is how they will answer your question, “Does he actually like me?” by trying to help him in a very obvious way.
9. He shows signs of jealousy
How does he act when you talk to some other guy? Does he get angry?
The answer to the question of, “Does he like me?” was pretty clear to me once I saw how much it bothered him to see me flirting with another man.
You can test this, but don’t overdo it because it might be too much for him, and he could give up even though he likes you.
However, if you make him just a little jealous, it might get him to finally confess his feelings for you and do something about it.
10. He asks for your number
A guy who likes you will, naturally, want to get your number.
However, be careful because there are guys who simply collect girls’ phone numbers, with no intention of having a serious relationship.
This is a good sign that he likes what he sees, but not a sure sign that his intentions are pure, nor that you’re the only girl whose number he has asked for.
You need to pay attention to other signs because this one doesn’t have to mean that this is a guy you’re going to have something serious with.
11. He initiates contact
If you’re always the one who reaches out, and he never does, that’s a bad sign.
On the other hand, if he often initiates contact and responds quickly to your messages, it’s a big indicator that he likes you.
Don’t let yourself always be the one who initiates contact. Wait for him to do it to see if he’s really interested in you.
Trust me, if he likes you, he will call and text you because he won’t just wait around waiting for you to do so.
12. He connects with you on social media
If a guy likes you, he’ll want to learn more about you and be able to contact you whenever he wants.
What better way to achieve both those things than by connecting with you on social media?
If he likes your photos, comments on the things you post, and often chats to you, you don’t have to ask yourself, “Does he like me?”
What do his replies look like? If he is giving you one-word responses, he’s probably just stringing you along.
However, if he wants to keep the conversation going, he likes you.
13. He tells you about his personal life
Has he opened up to you? That’s one of the signs he likes you and has serious intentions.
He talks to you about how he spends his time and tells you stories about his friends and family.
When a man is willing to confide in you, you can be sure that you have caught his eye.
It takes vulnerability to open up to someone, and if he is ready to tell you things about himself, it shows that he thinks that you are worth the risk.
Letting you get to know him better is a great sign.
14. He wants to know if you are seeing someone
You don’t have to wonder, “Does he like me?” when he asks you if you have a boyfriend.
He might not ask you that directly, but he’ll ask questions that will help him figure out whether you’re seeing someone or not.
Maybe he’ll simply tell you that he is single, hoping that you’ll tell him the same afterward.
Whatever way he puts it, if he’s interested to find out about your relationship status, he likes you.
Tell him that you’re single and see how he reacts. Does he smile?
15. He uses every opportunity to touch you
Whether he puts his hand on yours, or his arm appears around your shoulder, if he uses every chance to touch you, he likes you.
He won’t touch you in an inappropriate way, but he still won’t be able to keep his hands off of you.
Maybe he’ll put his hand on your back when you’re walking through a crowd, or he’ll even touch your face.
A man can’t resist touching a woman he likes. He wants to be close to you, and physical contact is a strong sign of affection.
16. He remembers the details you tell him
Guys don’t usually pay that much attention to what girls are saying to remember the little things… except when they like those girls.
When a man remembers the little details you told him about yourself or something that is important to you, it’s a sure sign he likes you.
It feels really good to get such proof that someone has paid attention to what you were saying, and it’s also proof that that person is interested in you.
Otherwise, he wouldn’t have bothered to remember the little things.
17. He teases you
It starts in kindergarten and never really ends. A guy always teases the girl he likes and the reason for this is to get your attention. He wants you to notice him.
Another reason is that he wants you to think he’s funny and the third reason is that it’s just something guys do when they like a girl. They simply can’t help it.
When a guy teases you, you can be sure that he’s interested and sees you as more than just a friend.
Don’t be afraid to playfully tease him back! Show him that you can be funny too.
18. He doesn’t notice other girls
Another thing all guys always do is check out good-looking girls who pass by. They can’t help it; they have to look at them.
However, this all changes when they find a girl they want to put all their focus on.
If he is focused on you and doesn’t even notice other girls, he surely likes you.
Maybe you’re sitting in a restaurant, and a beautiful waitress serves you drinks.
You could tell him, “Wow, the waitress is really pretty,” and he would answer, “What waitress?” He is so focused on you that he doesn’t even notice her.
19. He offers to help you
When he likes a girl, a man wants to show her that he’s reliable and that she can depend on him.
By offering his help, he wants to show you that he’ll be there for you when you need him.
If he hasn’t offered his help, ask him for some and see how he reacts. Is he happy to help out? Then he might be into you.
Men love to feel needed, so asking him for help is always a good idea, especially if you need him to do something manly.
20. He wants to spend more time with you
If a guy likes you, he will make sure he gets you to spend some time with him.
He’ll keep inviting you to do things together, whether it’s to go for a drink, coffee, or dinner, or simply do some fun activity such as bowling.
If he keeps calling you to get together and spend some time with each other, there’s no need to wonder, “Does he actually like me?” because he surely does.
He will ask you to hang out if he’s into you, but if he hasn’t, you could ask him and see if he says yes.
21. He gives you compliments
You will be surprised by what he notices about you, and he won’t hesitate to give you a compliment.
It could be your hairstyle, your personality, or your clothes, but he’ll notice even the smallest details.
For example, no one else even noticed that you were wearing a brooch, but he told you that it was beautiful and wanted to know the story behind it.
Whenever you change something about your appearance, he’s the first to notice, and you instantly get a compliment from him.
22. He introduces you to his friends
Why would he want you to meet his friends if he didn’t like you?
He is proud of you and honored to get to know you, so he wants to show you off to all of his friends.
Try to figure out if his friends are giving you some hints that he’s into you because if he is, they probably know about it.
Maybe they will try to make him look good, leave the two of you alone, or try to make sure that you sit next to each other.
23. He gives you a lot of attention
When a guy gives you a lot of attention, he probably likes you.
He doesn’t give that much attention to anyone but you, and when he’s with other people, it seems he just looks at you.
When you join the group, he will stop talking to others and focus only on you.
He doesn’t look at his phone when he’s talking to you and doesn’t even answer his calls if the phone rings because he just wants to listen to what you have to say.
You have his full attention, and that’s a sign that he likes you.
24. He talks about his plans for the future
You know where he sees himself in five years because he told you all about it.
The reason why he tells you his plans for the future is that he wants to see how you’ll fit in with them.
He is also trying to impress you by showing you that he doesn’t consider only short-term things.
This guy has long-term goals, and he wants you to be beside him when he gets to achieve them.
Telling you about his future is another sign that he likes you.
25. He wants you to tell him your future plans
Just like he wants to know if you fit in with his plans for the future, he’ll want to know if he fits in with yours.
If you are planning to move to another country, it would be difficult for him to start a relationship with you.
He asks you about your plans for the future, but he might know about them more than you do.
If he wants you to be a part of his future, he’ll want to see if you have room in yours for him.
26. He talks badly about other guys
He sees other men as competition and doesn’t want any of them to get the chance to steal you away from him, even before you’ve become his girlfriend.
This is the way he will try to eliminate the competition, by badmouthing them.
He will try to make everyone else look bad, so you would be sure that he’s the best choice for you.
His biggest fear is that you’ll start liking another guy, so he wants to make sure that you think that there’s nothing to like about other men.
27. He laughs at all your jokes
Even when you make the lamest jokes that aren’t even funny, he will laugh his head off.
He wants you to feel acknowledged and important, so he’ll try his best to laugh at any joke you tell.
This is all because he likes you a lot. If you want to test him, simply tell a lame joke, and see if he laughs.
A man who likes you probably will, no matter how stupid the joke is.
After all, haven’t we already acknowledged that he can’t resist smiling even when you talk about something serious? He likes you.
28. He surprises you with small, thoughtful gestures
Maybe he surprises you by bringing you your favorite coffee when he knows you had a tough day at work.
He could also bring you warm soup when he knows that you’re down with the flu.
On your birthday, the most thoughtful present you get will be from him.
When a man gives you a gift, you can be quite sure that he likes you, but this doesn’t mean that he will get you something expensive.
The only thing that matters is that the gift is thoughtful, and you can tell that he puts a lot of thought into it.
29. He enjoys spending time with you
All in all, this guy seems to enjoy spending time with you, and that’s a great sign that he likes you.
Right now, you’re only friends, but you shouldn’t rush anyway either.
Use this time to get to know one another a little better and figure out if you are really right for each other.
Just because he likes you doesn’t mean you should be with him.
Figure out if he’s the right person for you before your friendship turns into something more.
30. He tells you
Turn the question, “Does he like me?” to, “Do you like me?” and ask him.
What do you have to lose? If he hasn’t told you yet, you can ask him, and you’ll at least know the truth.
Maybe he doesn’t like you, but at least you’ll be able to stop wondering about it and focus on something (or someone) else.
However, what if he does?
He might be relieved that you asked and got him to finally confess his feelings for you and your question could be what gets you to finally start a relationship.
If not, you can move on, read these signs again and maybe realize that someone else is showing them but you haven’t even noticed!
That someone might not be in your life yet, but when he is, you’ll be able to tell!
