10 Signs Your Crush Likes You Back

By on August 23, 2013

Wondering if the man you’ve been crushing on likes you back can be extremely confusing. It may be  hard to figure out if a guy really, really likes you like you like him, especially if you’re not sure what you should be looking for. It’s not fun waiting around for him to tell you if he does or not and it can be frustrating hanging onto someone who you aren’t even sure has the same feelings for you. It may just be too embarrassing to ask because of the fear of rejection. So, to help you out here are 10 ways to tell if your special someone wants you to be his special someone, too.


1. Body Language:


We, as humans, say a lot with our bodies- sometimes more than we even say with our words. Body language is an important factor in any relationship; romantic or not. The way your crush moves his body may be telling you something this whole time! Does your crush fidget when he’s around you? Does he try to make eye contact with you as much as possible? Does he touch you a lot? Put his arm around you? Hold your hand? Do you catch him glancing at you, just like you glance at him? Even looking to see if he laughs or smiles when you laugh or smile may be the key to finding out whether he likes you.

2. Compliments:


It’s very unusual for someone who doesn’t feel romantic about you to give you a lot of compliments. Especially if the compliments are ones about your looks. Things like: You’re beautiful, you have an amazing smile, your laugh is cute, you have stunning eyes, etc. Also, if your crush tells you these things more than once, that’s a good sign that he really likes you back.

3. Getting personal:



Does your crush ask you questions about yourself? Does he pry for more  information about you, your family, likes or dislikes? Does he talk about his personal life, goals, family, past relationships, secrets or something else that you wouldn’t tell just anyone? If he does, this may be a great sign that he likes you. Guys don’t open up to just anyone- actually, they don’t open up a lot period. But, when it comes to a girl they may like, they will try to get to know her and let her get to know him because he wants to be more than friends. He wants to let you in. This means he trusts you, but also wants to get to know more about you, too.

4. Friends & Family:


A guy doesn’t bring just anyone to hang out with him and his friends. If your crush wants you to meet his friends or his family, then you may be assured that he likes you as more than a friend. This isn’t always a sure signs, but in most cases a guy doesn’t waste time to go through that whole process for no reason. If he wants you to meet those close to him, it means that he wants you to get to know them and he wants both of you to get along.

5. Communication:


Does your crush make an effort to contact you first by texting, calling or even social network messaging you? Does he reply to your messages relatively briefly after you sent them? Does he answer most of your calls or call you back as soon as he can? All in all, does he make as much of an effort to talk to you as you do to him? If so, it means he really has an interest in you. Guys are forgetful creatures. They won’t usually make the effort to talk to someone who they don’t really want to talk to.

6. Dates and Presents:



A guy who gives you gifts, whether extravagant or small, really cares for you. He wants to impress you and make you happy by giving you things he thinks you’ll love. He obviously loves seeing you happy and loves that he’s the one doing it. If your crush takes you out for ice cream, to a movie, to dinner, to any event or place multiple times, it may mean that he wants to take you out on ‘dates’ and take the relationship further soon enough. Men don’t spend money on girls they don’t have any intention of seeing or dating.

7. People:


Whether people you know are telling you that they think your crush likes you back or you ask them for their opinion, that is a sign that he truly does like you. Third parties are better at seeing the signs than you are because they are not blinded by love. They can see clearly what’s going on and will be able to tell you the absolute truth.

8. Hanging Out:


If you find your crush wanting to be around you a lot, asking you to hang out more than often or offer to take you places, they make like you. If he’s doing these things then it usually means he wants to be around you and enjoys your company. If he offers to take you places or walk you home then he doesn’t mind taking time out of his day to do something nice for you because he wants to make you happy. Definitely a sign he likes you.

9. Exclusivity:


Is he hanging out with other girls? Do you find him talking to other girls, taking them out to date-like places, giving them gifts, etc? This may mean he doesn’t like you as much as you’d hope because he’s not staying exclusive with you. If your crush doesn’t seem to have any other important girls in his life besides you and pays attention to only you, it’s a sign he may like you.

10. He Tells You:


Either he tells you or drops hints that he likes you. That’s definitely a sure as hay sign he likes you back. If he says things pertaining to your future together, how you would be a good girlfriend, how he wishes he had a girl like you or if he straight out says, “I like you”, then he is most definitely interested!

      He is likely concerned about you and not whether or not you want to still talk with him. If you are worried that you may have lost some time with him, then make it up. Attempt to hang out with him or give him extra attention next time you see him. If you want to develop a relationship with him, then speak with him directly and honestly about your feelings. Enjoy life and remain positive. Best of luck, Lela!

      You may find that your friend has an interest in developing a relationship with you as well. Though you may be concerned that sharing your feelings may negatively influence your relationship. This fear is normal, but there are remedies for this. Instead of directly sharing your feelings, perhaps it may be wise of you to spend more time with your friend. Share your interests in hobbies and see if there is something new and exciting that you can do together. This will naturally develop your relationship into something more. If that is not enough for you, then share your feelings directly and honestly. Enjoy life and remain positive!
