How To Know If A Guy Likes You: Top 13 Signs
Does he like me?
No matter what kind of girl you are, chances are at one point in our lives we have all been plagued with this question. You like him but you have no idea what lies in his heart. Does he feel the same way?
And so, you find yourself on your hands and knees, replaying every conversation together and rereading all his texts. You’re not just trying to read between the lines but beyond them. You toss and turn in bed wondering if he’s this way with all his friends or if you’re special to him. Some of us even beg the universe or God for a sign. Just a little clue that the star of their daydreams is into them too.
But in all honesty, it isn't that complicated. If a guy likes you, there are some simple definitive signs that will tell you so. Closely observe his actions and you can get your answer.
Here’s a list of 13 telltale signs that he may be very much into you -
#1. He wants to know everything about you
Do you feel like he is constantly asking you questions, questions, and more questions? It could be a sign that he likes you. There are two reasons why guys ask tons of questions to girls they are into - a) he wants to get to know every single thing there is to know about you and b) he doesn’t want the conversation to end. Also, keep an eye out on how he responds when you are answering. Does he look you straight in the eyes? Does he smile? Does he listen intently? These are all major indications that he likes you!
#2. He says it with his body language
More often than not, the body says what the mouth doesn’t. Body language has scientifically been proven to give indications of attraction. It operates on a subconscious level so he probably doesn’t even know he’s giving you all these signs. No words are needed. Pay attention to how his body is positioned when you are with him. Some helpful signs to watch out for are if he leans in towards you when you talk. When you like someone, you also tend to mirror them, check if he mirrors you, that is, if you cross your legs, he also crosses his, for example. People’s feet also tend to point in the direction of the person they like, so even if he is standing away from you, check if his feet are in your direction. On the other hand, if his arms are crossed while talking to you, or his body is constantly pointing away from you, it may mean that he isn’t interested romantically.
#3. He gets nervous around you
Hello! You’re not the only one getting butterflies! Just like you feel nervous around him, he’s probably feeling nervous around you too. Look for signs of nervousness that you feel yourself in him. Everyone portrays nervousness differently. Some may talk super fast or some may stutter. His hands might shake. He might ramble or tell dumb jokes. You get the idea! These are signals that he is super into you and wants to impress you. Be kind and patient.
#4. He looks into your eyes a lot
You know what they say about eyes being the window to the soul. You know a guy likes you if he constantly makes eye contact with you. From the minute you first catch each other’s eyes to when you have a real conversation, eye contact is always a good thing. Doesn’t it make you all warm and fuzzy when he looks you straight in the eye?! Interestingly, a recent scientific study, researchers at Wellesley College and the University of Kansas discovered that both men and women who were romantically interested in someone would stare at that person’s head or chest frequently. If they considered that person just a friend, they looked at feet or legs more. So these are signs you should be on the lookout for.

#5. He’s always giving you attention
When you walk into a room, does he leave everything else to come to talk to you? If you’re out with a group of friends, does it feel like he talks to you more than everyone else? If you answered yes, it probably means he’s into you. A simple test would be to go away from him the next time you’re hanging out in a group. If he catches your eye across the room or follows you to where you have gone, he is so into you, girl!
#6. He looks for excuses to touch you
Someone who is romantically interested in someone else would generally feel the impulse to reach out and touch them. Seeking physical contact is human nature. I don’t mean this in a pervy way. A guy who likes you would like to initiate some innocent touches such as your arm or your shoulder. He will look for excuses like reading your tattoo or picking fluff from your hair to do so. Men who don’t like someone are very clear about not touching them because they don’t want to give the wrong impression. So if he is always touching you, he is trying to let you know he likes you.
#7. You both often banter
Guys like to keep the conversation interesting with girls they like using wisecracks. He'll probably be constantly making jokes to make you laugh. If you both banter often and pull each other's legs or play-fight, it could be a sign he wants to take it to the next level. Keep your comebacks handy!
#8. He gives you tons of compliments
Men barely notice changes in women let alone compliment them. Besides, they aren’t quick to hand out compliments unless they mean what they're saying. So if a guy is constantly telling you how nice your hair looks today or how blue is really your color, he is most likely into you. The compliments don't just have to be about physical appearances. He can also compliment your wit or sense of humour. Accept it graciously. He really does mean it.
#9. He shows up
If a man likes you, there is nothing in the world he won’t do for you. All you have to do is ask. So if you find him constantly helping you out, doing work for you even if he doesn’t usually do that or go out of his way for you, it is a strong indication that he likes you very much. Who will invest so much time and effort into someone they don’t really like, right?
#10. He finds it hard to say goodbye
When you're more than a friend to someone, you find it hard to say goodbye. For example, you'll see him saying pointless things just so a conversation doesn't end. Or when you meet him, he keeps suggesting more things to do so the date doesn't have to end are clear signs he likes you. Another indicator is to set a 'next time' such as telling you he'll call you tomorrow when he hangs up or asking you about your Sunday plans at the end of your Friday night date.
#11. He remembers details
Unlike us, women who know exactly what someone said in a conversation on the 23rd of March at 2:25 pm, men aren’t very good at remembering details. So if you find him remembering little details about you like your birthday or favourite colour, he likes you very much. It shows that he is putting in the effort to actively listen to everything you tell him and remember it too.
#12. He tries to find your status
Either directly or in a roundabout manner, a guy who likes you will want to know if you’re single. Even if he doesn’t directly ask if you have a boyfriend, he will find some way to phrase that question and get your answer. Some questions you should watch out or are: are you seeing anyone, do you have plans with someone tonight or even statements such as: a girl like you cannot be single!
#13. His friends say what he doesn't
Our friends are some of our life's most valuable relationships. They want the best for us and when we find someone we love, we'd want them to get to know this bunch who is so incredibly special to us. When you meet his friends, observe their behaviour carefully. Are they surprised to see you or did they expect you to be with him? Do they tease him about you? Do they say things like he’s so lucky to have found someone like you? Often, playfully, friends reveal a lot. The ultimate sign for you to look out for to know if a guy likes you is if his friends make it blatantly obvious!
