Firstly, as I have alluded to in How to Get a Guy to Notice You, guys like a lot of women – too many to pursue any sort of relationship with in a hundred lifetimes.
But given that you are probably more interested in the signs he likes you enough to seek a relationship with you, we will focus on these.
There are a number of signs that a guy likes you. Some of the classic ones are the following:
1. He keeps checking you out from a distance (and may look away if you try to make eye contact with him)
This is the type of thing that a guy who doesn’t know you will do, especially in places like bars and gyms where you are both likely to be in the same place for an extended period of time.
The key thing here is that he keeps checking you out. For if he has a bit of a look and then you don’t catch him doing it again, he most likely has decided against you. And out of all the signs he likes you, this is probably the one least likely to be employed by a guy who already knows you to at least some degree.
When you notice a guy looking at you, there are a few things that you need to do if you are interested in him and would like things to progress. Check out my post How to Flirt with Guys to discover the key steps that you must take to avoid losing your chance with him.
2. He seems to hang around a lot
This can be the case both for guys who know you and those who don’t know you. They just seem to gravitate towards you and follow you around whenever you move.
This might involve them talking to people close by you and trying to listen in on your conversation.
For guys who do know you, you may also find that they always seem to pop up at places where they know you are going to be.
3. He makes an effort to interact with you
Guys will often find any excuse that they can to interact with a woman that they like.
So if a random guy makes a comment or starts talking to you, it probably means that he likes you. He might have a very plausible excuse, like needing directions or wanting to know the time. But if this was really the case, he could have asked anyone, right?
4. He gets nervous in your presence
When a guy likes you a lot, he will probably shows signs of being nervous in your presence, especially when you are making eye contact with him.
He may stutter, talk really fast or in a disjointed way, and could display nervous twitches.
The most common one though is that he will smile a lot – too much in fact! He might even have a cheesy grin the whole time. This is one of the most important signs he likes you!
5. He tries really hard to keep conversations between the two of you going
When the conversational thread seems to be dying, he may go to a lot of effort to resurrect it, or to start a new one before an awkward silence happens. He might say, “Soooooo …. ” a quite a bit.
6. He shares private thoughts and feelings with you
This might include discussing his passions in life with you, or some of his hopes and dreams.
The key distinction here is that the guy is trying to create some sort of intimacy with you through such an approach.
Although this may not be one of the most common signs he likes you, it should not be overlooked.
7. He touches you when he is talking
This might be on the shoulder or back. Less confident guys will probably not do this though.
8. He flirts with you
This can take many forms, such as teasing you, smiling at you, and saying/doing outrageous things (eg. smacking your ass).
But be careful though, as there are guys who you would put in the “flirt” category. They build their self-esteem up by flirting with a lot of women and getting them interested, when they have no real interest in these women themselves (other than possibly just for sex).
9. He sends you a Facebook friend request, when you don’t really even know him that well
Of all the signs he likes you, this one is probably the most unreliable though, since these days people go around adding everyone who they even vaguely know in order to boost their friend count. However, this could be a reliable signal if he does some of the other things on the list when he is around you.
So, those are some of the main signs that a guy likes you. But to make sure that you are the kind of woman that men typically display these signs to, I recommend that you firstly check out my articles:
Then you need to read dating and relationship expert Kara Oh’s bestselling book Men Made Easy, which I have reviewed here: Men Made Easy Review.
In these interviews, she encouraged the guys to be as open and honest as they could about their thoughts on women and relationships. And as a result, they revealed some startling information which every woman who is interested in having a great man in her life needs to know.
This eventually became the 12 secrets about men when Kara Oh boiled the information down into what she felt were the absolute game-changers in terms of both understanding and attracting men.
Through these secrets (which she shares in Men Made Easy), she reveals exactly how you can become the kind of woman who magnetically attracts men and makes them fall in love with you – even if you are not the best looking woman in the world.
