20 Signs A Guy Likes You: Decoding His Body Language

By on September 15, 2013

When it comes to guys… well, let’s just say it can be pretty darn hard to figure out if he’s into a woman or not! At times, men and boys can definitely be hard to read. Their body language is different than ours and it can be troublesome to decode what they are really feeling. After doing some research, it turns out that guys aren’t really that hard to get when it comes to the signals they are sending out… If you know what to look for that is! Here are some tells to look for when it comes to decoding a guy’s body language and what he is really saying. Does he like you or not? Read the following tips to find out:

Sign # 1.) A guy who is interested in you may start touching, twirling or running his hands through his hair while smiling. This could be due to the fact that it’s a habit he has when he gets nervous around a lady, but is still showing strong intrigue. Be careful for head-scratching, tugging or a frown while he’s doing these hair-touching mannerisms, though. Those are two signs that he may be frustrated, confused or bored!

Sign #2.) A man who is licking his lips around you may be secretly signaling that he finds you delectable. Maybe he’s trying to tell you something… Wink, wink. Or, it could mean that lip-licking is another nervous habit he possesses. Sometimes, when people get nervous, their mouths go dry and cause them to lick their lips to keep them hydrated.

Sign #3.) A guy will usually unknowingly display his interest to a woman by directing his entire upper body (chest, head, shoulders) to his crush. He does this to show you that he is interested in only you. He is subtly positioning himself so that others know his attention is directed at one person and he isn’t open for anyone else to talk to steal the conversation at this point.

Sign #4.) You may find a guy is into you by looking to see if he is making consistent eye contact with you for long periods of time (more than 5 seconds!) to connect with you and show you that he is really intent on listening to what you have to say. He’s also focused on trying to get to know more of your body language, too. (Or, he may even just think you have beautiful eyes and can’t look away!)

eye contact

Sign #5.) Really want to find out if someone’s into you? Well, when a guy is attracted and intrigued by a girl, he will raise his eyebrows. This is a tell-tale sign that he’s interested in someone and if he’s talking to you, then you are the one he’s raising them for. Keep your eyes peeled, though, as this gesture is usually a pretty quick and subtle one.

raise his eyebrows

Sign #6.) Primal instincts will kick into a man when he is crushing on a woman. Because of those instincts he will, most likely without realizing it, spread his feet slightly apart and direct his hips and pelvis towards his person of interest. It’s just biological!

Sign #7.) The gesturing of hands is a significant thing to look for when chatting with a guy. If this certain someone digs you, he will use his hands a lot. Guys tend to use their hands to go along with their conversation a ton more when they are talking to a girl they really like. The reason they do this is to make sure you are understanding what they are saying on the same level they do and they are trying very hard to hold your attention to them. Sometimes, though, different people talk differently and not all guys will use large arm and hand gestures.

hand gestures

Sign #8.) To help you figure out if a man is really interested, make sure you are paying close attention to where he is placing both of his hands at all times. It’s more common that when a guy likes a girl, he will place his fingers through his belt loops or hook a finger on his waistband. He may also place his hands on his lap a lot or put them in his pockets. They do this to draw attention to their pelvic area…  I bet you can guess why? Don’t get the wrong idea! Some guys don’t come to a quick realization that they are doing such things with their hands. Once again, primal instinct sets in and forces their body to try to direct their person of interests attention to that area of their body.

hand in pocket

Sign #9.)  A guy who leans in while talking or listening to you is definitely interested in what you are doing and saying. This is a sign that tells you there is no doubt in him liking you. Men, for the most part, don’t like to direct their bodies towards just one person, especially if they aren’t interested. Leaning in is a sign that a man wants to be as close to you as possible.

looking

Sign #10.) Does a guy have no problem placing his arm around your shoulder? Does he take no modesty in touching your arm or knee? Have you had a guy tuck a strand of hair behind your ear or push your hair out of your face? A man who touches you a lot, is only showing that he doesn’t want there to be boundaries between the two of you and wants to get as close to you as possible.

hand on shoulder

Sign #11.) Any guy who offers you his hand while climbing up or down stairs, out of a car, opens doors for you or offers you a sweater or jacket when you’re cold… well, he is totally crushing on you. Men don’t always try to take care of people that they themselves don’t care for. They will only go out of their way to protect and ensure the safety and comfort of people they truly like.

crushing

Sign #12.) When a guy digs a girl he will always look at her first after saying or doing something funny or extraordinary. The reason he glimpses at you and awaits your reaction is to see what you think before he looks to see what anyone else thinks. That means your opinion is the most important and he totally is smitten with you.

fun

Sign #13.) Is there a man who tries to quickly smooth out wrinkles when you walk in? Does he fix his tie (if he wears one) or fuss with his hair? He’s trying to make himself presentable for you and that is a definite yes when it comes down to if he likes you or not.

hair

Sign #14.) Look to see if you can catch a guy mirroring your body language as you are talking.  The more he repeats what you do with his own body, the more he’s intent on paying attention to everything about you- from your words to your body. This gesture shows you that he is trying to make you feel more comfortable around him and he wants you to feel familiar with him, as well.

Sign #15.) A man who is trying to impress a girl he likes will suddenly stand up taller when she enters the room or area. He will try to make himself appear stronger, more protective and more masculine by doing this.

taller

Sign #16.) Guys often touch or stroke their face when they are really listening to what you have to say. They are set on taking in the information you are putting out and trying to remember it thoroughly. If you find a guy that is stroking his chin (or beard), cheeks or nose, then he is more than likely into you. And, he’s a total keeper for being a good listener, too!

Sign #17.) Again we loop back to talking about men and their hands. When a guy stretches his hands, especially an upward palm, towards you, it is his way of signaling to you that he wants to get closer to you and for you to get closer to him. It’s almost as if he is putting them out there in a form of asking permission to break personal space.

Sign #18.) When a guy is hardcore into a woman, he will flick his eyes towards her as much as possible. If you catch a man frequently staring at you and darting his eyes away quickly, then he is totally into you. The reason he does this, especially if you are not right next to each other, is to see what you are doing, how you are doing and what you are feeling at this point. He is literally focused on looking out for you.

smiling

Sign #19.) If a guy sits next to you and leaves barely mere inches between you, it’s his way of showing you that he’s comfortable around you and likes being near you. Or, if you find him standing next to you, almost in your personal space, he is letting you know that he likes being close to you and prefers it over any other distance apart.

sit next to

Sign #20.) Always keep in mind that a man has instincts he isn’t even aware of most of the time. So, if you see a guy puffing out his chest to make it appear bigger and if he’s sucking in his gut, he’s trying to impress you. Some guys may only stick their chests out a little, but it’s still a most definite sign that he’s trying to prove his masculinity and stand out from all of the other guys in the room. He wants to prove to you that he’s the best and that he wants you!

    Hi ! So there’s a guy within my friend group that I have been crushing on for a while now. According to other friends who have talked to him he likes me back as well and is planning to take me out on a date soon. The problem is he doesn’t know i like him back. I’m not sure how to approach him or whether or not I should say anything. We talk a lot during school and have had sweet moments were he’s put his arm around me or where we’ve held hands but i’m not sure whether to believe what my friends have said and go for it or just ride it out and hope that they were right and he’s going to ask me out . Help !

      If he is in your friend group, why don’t you just have one of your friends tell him that you like him? It sounds like he likes you, and the fact that your friends say that he is going to ask you out is a pretty clear indicator. If you are okay with taking a risk, then go ahead and ask him out. If you are afraid of what he will say and want to play it safe, just wait for him to ask you out. Good luck, N!

    Hey!

    There is this really cute guy at my school named chase, and he just recently broke up with my best friend. When anybody asks him, he claims that he only likes her, but i think differently. We have all of our classes together and in every single class, he stares at me and when i look at him back, he looks away. In the hallways, he always stops to talk to me before every class. and the other day, his friend told me that chase said that he had this dream where he was kissing me and i was super nervous. Please help me. I don’t know what to do!

      It sounds like he could like you, and the dream that he had indicates that he is at least physically attracted to you. Since he used to date your best friend, he may be hesitant to flirt with you or ask you out. Due to this, it may be up to you to initiate the next move or ask him out. You should talk to your friend about it first though because she would probably be upset if you guys just started dating each other without asking her first.

    I like this boy, Dustin. He is 33. And we have knowed each other for 3 years. And I met him through my cousin. My cousin keeps telling me that Dustin likes me and that he is shy. But every time I see Dustin, his face gets red. And if I see him before he sees me, he is all droopy and moaps around but when he sees me he perks up. And my cousin even tells me that when Dustin does not get to see me that he cries over missing me. And a couple of weeks ago I showed up at his work and he didnt know I was there and he had been crying until he seen me then he perked up. He knows where I live but wont come up here unless he has a excuse. Like one night, I had went out there to his work and he walked me out to my car and then I was having car trouble so he fixed the car and followed me home, just to make sure I made it home safe. My cousin says he may not come up to my house cause hes shy. Could that be the reason he wont come to my house??? And when I see him, he constantly stares at me. And every time I see him, I catch him looking at my chest. (if u know what I mean) Also my cousin says that Dustin is always asking him to get him pics of me. Dustin has even told me before that he aint dated in atleast 12 years cause of how his last girlfriend done him. And that he was afraid of gettin close to another girl. But my cousin who has been friends with Dustin for 9 years atleast did not know about Dustin and this girl. And I offered to bring Dustin something to eat one night and he told me his girlfriend was bringing him something to eat. My cousin told me that Dustin really liked me and that he may of got scared and said that or that he may not be use to a girl treating him so good. My cousin has also told me that Dustin wants to date me and that he wants to settle down with me and us have kids and possibly get married. My cousin also tells me that Dustin is very shy and that I will have to make the first move asking Dustin out. Also Dustin gets mad if he sees another guy talking to me. I try to avoid talking to any other guys. He has went off on all the guys he works with and told them all to not be talking to me. He even tells them all that we are dating, but we aint datin yet. He is also very protective of me too. Does this sound like he likes me and does want to date me??? What should I do???

      It sounds like he likes you and does want to date you. The comment about his girlfriend bringing him food is weird, but he may have just panicked and not known what to say around you. If you are pretty certain that he does not actually have a girlfriend, I would just ask him out. It sounds like he is interested in you and has a serious crush on you, so my guess is that he will be extremely excited if you ask him on a date. Not going to your house was probably just because he was afraid of scaring you off or seeming creepy. From the sound of your description, he is seriously, seriously into you. Good luck!

    i had a crush on a guy age 41, im 32 he told me he was single, so I asked him out, we never went out yet he flirted with me, picked on me, gets upset when id talk to other men daily the jealous type….so I dug around and found out he is engaged with a teenage son….he doesn’t know I know that he is engaged..till this day he still acts the same way around me very flirtatious and playful he’ll come up behind me sometimes and massage my shoulders and it’s gotten to the point that people think we are screwing/dating each other and I told my friends he is just a office buddy, i am single…. me and him work in the same building/same floor but diff companies…I even reminded him that we are just friends and he looked at me and said that’s all we are..i said yes and reminded him that he ignored my date offer, so all we are is friends….should I confront him about him being engaged or just not say anything and let him keep doing what he is doing so it wont seem suspicious….it’s just friendly behavior right? thanks for the help

      You don’t want to make things awkward at work, and it’s not like you are dating. I would tone it down on the flirting since he is engaged, but otherwise I would just treat him like a regular co-worker. He is engaged, so you guys will not be together any time in the near future, so your main goal should just be to keep things from getting awkward at work. Good luck, Yanet!

      If he does not like her, he should just break up to her. It sounds like he could like you, but you can’t do anything now. He is in a relationship and you have to respect that. Until he is single, do not ask him out and do not ask him if he likes you. When he is single, you can make a move and see what happens. You have liked him for five years, so it would be worth it to look like a fool and find out if anything could be possible between you two. Good luck, Charlotte!

    I’m having another issue with David…
    Yesterday one of my friends had told me that David was mad at me. I was really sad and upset and I was very confused that happen first period so when I went to second period I had one of my friends go up and ask him are you mad at Hannah and he said who is Hannah. He seemed like he was joking but it really hurt my feelings and during PE I didn’t really want to do anything…. Today game and the thing was still going on and I was still trying to ask him if he was mad at me and wouldn’t tell me or my friend why so I was really sad and it seemed very fake because he wasn’t being rude and he was still staring at me with the innocent face he always has … He wasn’t being rude to me but I had one of my friends text him and ask him the Same thing… He kept on avoiding the question except for today my friend to a told me that he was mad at me came up to me again today going to seventh period and he told me that it was a joke and it was all planned out. Before that happened my friend who had asked David and PEZ was mad at me she asked him in their language arts class and he said why would she care if I was mad at her so that seems very odd to me that he was also kind assorted concer and he told me that it was a joke and it was all planned out. Before that had happened my friend who had asked David and PE if he was mad at me she asked him in their language arts class and he said why would she care if I was mad at her so that seems very odd to me that he was also kinda sorts concerned soooo….. Idk I he did that just to see if I would I get sad about it or what please help does he like me or what does this mean

      I have no clue what is going on in his mind right now. It sounds like he may have wanted to see what your reaction was, or he may have been actually mad for some reason and did not want to tell you that. Whatever the case, it looks like your best bet is to just forget about it and move on. Good luck!

    ok so a while ago I really had a huge crush on this boy and we hung out maybe once or twice and got to know each other pretty well. we would text frequently about silly things and he was always a huge flirt. we sat together at lunch sometimes and he would direct everything he said pretty much towards me (at least thats how it felt). But then my good friend started fooling around with the idea of flirting with him (even though she knew i liked him) and he started telling me how he thought she was hot and stuff. at this point I really only wanted to be good friends, nothing more, but I still considered him a crush (life is boring without one). A few times before he has started texting my friend, he would constantly ask me about girls who were dtf. I never said I would be because I didn’t feel close enough to him yet, but I thought he was trying to make me jealous or something. Anyway me and my friend got in a huge fight about her talking to him in a flirtatious way and she ended up telling him everything. He got super mad at me and wouldn’t talk to me for like 3 months and he had texted me some pretty mean things about how he was troubled and I was a bitch because I made her hate him.So come to now and we talk again. We somehow became friends-ish and now he still is kind of weird around me but sometimes I feel like he could like me, but I’m not sure what is true because I was so wrong before when I thought he did. The only thing is I’m not the only one who notices how he treats me. A teacher commented on it saying how much he flirts with me and how we bicker back and forth because we both like each other and stuff. I don’t know why its so confusing, and part of me just wants to let this go and not talk to him at all but I can’t because its so confusing I NEED A CLUE.

      I think you should move on. He really, really liked your friend. He originally began talking to you to get close to your friend and find out if she likes him (hence, the dtf question). When he learned that he would never get to be with his crush because you stood in the way, he was upset. While he may be talking to you again, she is most likely still the girl he likes. His anger about you liking him, immaturity about not talking to you for months and obvious interest in finding someone for a fling make it sound like he would actually be a terrible person to date. There are many guys out there in the world–why choose this one?

      It is entirely possible that he likes you–after all, feelings do not just go away when the relationship ends. Unfortunately, it is also possible that he is acting odd around you because he does not know how to act now that you are no longer together. It does seem more likely that he may still be interested though. Perhaps you could have one of your friends just ask him if he likes you back now. Good luck, Ashanti!

    Hi! And sorry in advance if this is long!

    I am new to this school and I have liked this guy for about 8 months. We don’t take any classes together. I only see him the the halls. I melt, he loves little kids and is super tall and shy. He hangs with the popular crowd, I don’t really but I have a lot of good friends. He smiled at me when nobody was around. And directed his eyes toward me another time but there were people around. He rarely smiles because his resting face is a frown. He also was horsing around with his friend’s and as soon as I saw him we kept eye contact for what felt like 5-7 seconds. I also see him look at me when we are gathered for a celebration or presentation. He glances at me, I look at him and get scared so I look away.He comes to my class a lot or chooses my class over other classes (he has friends in my class but then again he has friends in others). The only “conversation” we had was when we were both late for classes and I held the door openot him, he hurried and stopped slouching. He straighted up and quickly grabbed hold of the door. He said “Thanks or Thank You” but his voice went higher than normal. (He has a low voice) Could that be puberty? And I replied to him “No Problem”. I forgot to smile, and after that I smiled to hard so I couldn’t look at him. I am sort of going crazy. An answer would be much appreciated. And I thank you for taking the time to read this!

      It sounds like he may like you–or, at least, he seems to be attracted to you. This is not enough to know for sure how he feels though. The best way to find out would be to try talking to him more often so that you can better gauge his reaction. Plus, talking to him will give him more chances to ask you out if he is interested after all. Best of luck, SP!

    I really like a boy named David and I never really got near or talked to him cuz I never had classes with him… I first started liking him when he asked me to play on his basketball team for PE, he asked me out of the blue and I accepted… Couple days later we had to do sit ups and I can’t do them
    because of medical reasons ( I broke my tailbone )… He finished and he was staring at me and he stepped on my foot and I said ” I can’t do them ” and he said ” well if you believe in yourself, any things possible”! He said it all sweet! David also would listen to my conversations with my friends and sometimes he would bud in or just listen from a far… One time I was talking about my friend owing me something for a dare I did in class and David said ” oh yeah I remember that it was funny” and I said ” ha it was to be honest”. all these conversations were awkward cuz we both don’t really talk to each other… David also had done this at least 3 times…David also would stare at me in PE if he did something cool or just in general…

    In science David stares at me from a far and if I catch him he would look away really fast or sometimes if I caught him he would rub or scratch his face… he stares at me a lot actually and especially in the hallways or during lunch

    Hallway: I purposely go by his last class so I can see him one last time before school gets out and he always glances at me from the corner of his eye and he holds it for at least 8 seconds and sometimes he would look me eye to eye and and then look away quickly and turn slightly red… I went by his 7th period and he was just staring at me all low key and he held it for like 12 seconds! It was crazy!

    Lunch: he used to never walk by my table to leave the cafeteria but now he does. He walks in front of my table and he looks at me from the corner of his eye… Me and my best friend were in the snack bar line and he was right by us leaving and he walked right in front of me and looked all shy and awkward and he was looking at me a little bit… He does much more but one things that made my heart drop was during PE I was staring at him and he caught me and low key smiled and waved to me……. What does all of this mean?!?!? Help me please I just want to know if he likes me! Please help

      It sounds like he could like you, although nothing is for sure yet. Everything you just described are signs that someone could be interested. For you to really find out how he feels, you should talk to him–it will be much better to gauge his feelings in a conversation than from afar. Good luck!

        Thanks so much for replying to my comment and I forgot to mention we do talk but not often but I have noticed he seems to stoke up conversations a lot with me like today in my PE class he said something and he looked right at me and I laughed and smiled and he seems to turn slightly redish…. He started randomly talking to me in science about something and we kept the convorsation going for at least 30 mins and it was great…. ( my classes are only 45 mins) but he strikes up all of our convorsations and he’s done this 7 or 8 times and it’s always awkward but he’s just shy I guess! Thanks again for answering my comment!

          It sounds like he certainly could like you if he goes out of his way to have long conversations with you. Perhaps he is just shy–if so, you may have to make the next move. Good luck, Hannah!

      Hi Hannah!

      It seems that you and I are in the same boat. But he definitely likes you. He tries to be around you. Makes eye contact with you and holds it. Frequently looks at you. Asked you out. And Waves to you. These are for sure signs he likes you. How much of a relationship do you to have? If you are friends you could try to talk to him more. And if you barely talk then smile at him during the eye contact and look away (but make sure that smile is clear and visible). He likes you:)

        Thanks so much for replying to my comment! I honestly started to think he has a crush on me as well! I had had something happen to me recently on Wednesday I was in science and david was talking to one of his friends and it didn’t really seem so weird but what I did notice was that his friend had colored pencils and he told him to put them away and David came right up to me and asked me if he could use mine I didn’t think much of it because if someone needed my colored pencils I would’ve normally have said yes but something else had happened I went out in the hallway to work on a project on a poster board and I was Perullo to him I could see him where I was sitting and he looked like he was talking about me to his friend they both kept looking over at me and I got extremely nervous and didn’t really know what that meant!!! David kept on rubbing his face and looking at me…. We don’t talk so much actually it’s more of like small talk…. On Tuesday of that same week I had noticed that when my partner went to go get a posterboard David was in the hallway with me we were alone and he straight up asked me hey Hannah what are you doing and I simply replied with one answer and I said waiting for my partner and faked a phone call with my dad about salad I feel really bad…. he also threw a paper ball at me the same day Brodie the hallway thing…. Please respond soon jiffsp! :) thanks for your help

          It sounds like he could like you, but he has not done enough to be sure yet. Go ahead and talk to him more–this will help you get a better read on his feelings and give him a chance to make a move if he is interested. Good luck!

    So there’s this guy that I really like. But I never really talked to him. And when we do it just about soccer. During g class I will always do d him staring at me and when I look at him he turns quickly. When I’m around him he’s al quite I do the same only because I don’t want to scare him away. When he’s about to do the stupidest thing ever he looks at me then does it he never laughed at me when I embarrass myself. He just smiles . Some of my classmates would tell me that he talks about me in a good way like how I’m a ‘good’ soccer player and how I far I can kick the ball. So does he like me or does he just like how I’m basically the only girl who plays soccer??

      It sounds like he could like you. He talks highly of you, thinks that you are good at soccer and constantly looks at you in class. He may just be shy about approaching you, or he may not know how strong his feelings are yet. You don’t have to ask him out–just start talking to him more so that you have a better idea about how he feels. If you get to know him better, he will have a chance to decide how he feels and ask you out if that is what he wants to do. Best of luck, Gissele Moreno!

    Hello, it’s me again. Am very confused as a guy is acting weird . He lives in an apartment nearby but we share the same main gate. We do greet each other when we meet but have never gone far. He’s usually the one to greet me first with a smile or a smirk. He sometimes waves at me with a cute smile. I was going home one day when he opened the gate for me. I just thanked him and went away. My father’s friend owns a bar so we often go there to have fun. He’s usually there with his friends and I always catch him glancing me. I am afraid he’ll not open up to me when I go to him so I we don’t talk to each other even in the bar. One day, a man I know came to the bar. We exchanged pegs and surprisingly he was looking at me. That was the second time he saw me exchanging pegs. The other one was a guy. I decided to say goodbye to him before leaving. To my uttermost surprise he gave a weird look whilst his friends looked at me. I left feeling very nervous. And oh, before that, we’re friends on Facebook so we usually have a chat on Messenger. casual chat (hello, how’re you doing, ).But before that incident, I didn’t see him for almost two weeks. He told me that he’s got a job in a town nearby. I congratulated him on his new job and wished him good luck! Since the incident he has never been to the bar again. I texted him on messenger but there was no reply. I texted him just a few days ago to ask him whether I can talk to him when I see him in the bar or around but still, there was no response. But it’s shows that he has read my messages. What do you think please.

      It sounds like he may not be interested after all. While he looks at you all the time, not talking to you in the bar or even responding to your text message is not a good sign. I would hold off and wait to see if he makes a move. It seems like he may not be interested, so I would wait and see if he does anything to get closer to you or flirt with you. There may be another reason–a recent relationship, not wanting a relationship or shyness–, but the easiest way to find out is to just wait for him to make the next move.

    Hello!
    It’s Jozzy again. I’ve known this guy for a year. He lives in an apartment nearby but we share the same main gate. We’re friends on Facebook but I don’t have his number. He’s really making me confused because I don’t understand his behaviour. We greet each other each time we meet. But he mostly is the first to say hi with a smile or a smirk. He sometimes waves with a cute smile. I once was going home and immediately he saw me coming, he opened the gate for me. I just thanked him. My friend’s father owns a bar of which we usually go there to have fun. He will be there with his friends and when he sees me,he’ll greet me iimmediately. We sometimes chat on Messenger but it’s just casual.(good day, how’re you, what are you doing? Etc ).I didn’t see him for almost two weeks so I asked where he has been and he told me that he has started working in a town nearby. I congratulated him and ended the chat there. Then, I saw a man I know in the bar who’s a friend to my friends dad. We exchanged pegs when I noticed that this this guy was peaking at us. I didn’t look at himaagain since a peg is a form of greeting. I was leaving and decided to say bye to him but to my uttermost surprise, he gave a wired look whilst some of his friends looked at me. I was some kind of nervous and left. Less I forget, we’ve never talked face to face before except saying hi. So I decided to ask him if I can talk to him when I see him in the bar or around through text(Messenger) but there was no reply. I texted him him just some few days ago but he hasn’t replied yet although he has read it. Since the incident at the bar, I’ve never seen him there again. What do you think please.

    I like this guy, we are in the same class, club, take the same bus home and to school and live at the same apts. he has offered me his jacket, to walk me home (which we have) and he has once ran over to me from more than twenty feet away when i screamed cuz I saw a spider. Today, while riding my bike in the parking lot he came by from his apt. I don’t know why but when he came near me he just sat down. We talked about break and stuff but I realised that he walked over to my place for no reason, as he told me, and was talking to me, before he left to go with his parents somewhere. Does he like me? Is he trying to get my attention?

      It sounds like he likes you. He has offered you his jacket, walks with you, goes out of his way to help you and tries to make conversation with you. It sounds like he is interested, so now you just have to decide if you are interested in him as well. He may be too shy or nervous around you to just ask you out, so you may have to ask him out or at least flirt with him to give him some encouragement. Good luck, Jane!

    I was on a retreat with a group of males and females. When the guy that I was developing feeling for appeared late one of his friends asked if I had properly said “Hi” and I said that I had waved, so he said that wasn’t good enough so he made me hug my crush. I also noticed that he kept poking my sides, despite me telling him that I didn’t like that. On the second day of the retreat towards the night time, all the retreatants and staff were outside. It was dark and quiet so I sat down by my crush, but a person away. The person that was separating us left so he kept asking me to get closer to him. He was eating popcorn and kept asking me to help him finish while he kept insisting that I get closer. I decide to sit criss-cross to take up more space since I didn’t want to cause any problems with the relationship he was in (he had a girlfriend at the time /.\ I know I’m awful). Even though I didn’t get close to him he got close to me and he leaned his head on my shoulder, I freaked. He then said that it should be the other way around and that I should be the one leaning on his shoulder. I said no. He kept asking why, but I did it out of respect because I didn’t want to be that girl, It took a lot of resistance, but I wouldn’t like someone to do that to me. He then stood up and left. I knew that he had problems with his relationship but I didn’t want to hurt anyone, but a month later I just found out they broke up, so now the question rises again, Did/Does he like me? Did I ruin my opportunity?

      Perhaps you missed out on the opportunity, but it sounds like you did the right thing. Even if he was having problems in his relationship, he should not have been flirting with you. Now, you can flirt with him and see if there is still a possibility of something happening. You may not have missed out on your chance–after all, it isn’t like he would suddenly stop liking you in a month if he did have a crush on you. You may have to be the one to make the first move though because he may not think you are interested. Go ahead and flirt with him again, talk to him or ask him out–it is the only way that you will see if anything is possible now. Good luck!

      It is possible that he likes you, but there is no way to know for sure. We also have an article on Her Interest that covers “How to Tell If a Guy Likes You”. It is more in-depth than this one, and you can read it to see if he does any signs of being interested. Good luck, Zinhle!

      He could like you. To find out, get to know him better and talk to him more often. The more you are around him, the better you will be able to understand how he thinks and feels. If you are pretty certain that he does like you, then you can always make the move and just ask him out. Good luck!

    Ok so there has been a lot of confusion between a guy and me. So I was in the cafeteria and was talking to my friends when suddenly an 8th grader a table away from me said are the guy sitting next to her girlfriend and I’m just like stunned don’t know what to say so i say nothing. Then i go back to talking with friends and then the 8th grader again was like This guy likes you and he’s a 7th grader and single. I look around to see who he is and i see him and I could tell he was nervous because he just kept looking straight forward sometimes glancing back to see if i was still looking at him and when i was he would turn his head away. So after that scenario I thought it was over but it wasn’t. The 8th graders came back outside and was like so your Sammy’s gF And I’m just like no because i don’t know the guy. Then they were like i can’t believe you said he is going to be so hurt by your words and then they thought and said you don’t even know who Sammy is, so they went to go get him but i didn’t think it was true. They actually brought him and he was trying not to come closer and he was smiling and according to my friends they said he was fiiiiinnnnne and that he was smiling at you the whole time and I’m like nooooooo. So after that day every 7th grader knows about me being Sammy’s crush but i wouldn’t let myself believe it but now i have developed feelings for him it seems like he’s trying to get closer to me because he use to sit/stand at a table far from me but now as in today he moved closer which was weird and he keeps looking at me and one time i went to the wrong 7th grade class and it was his class and when i got in i heard ooooh’s and I’m just like ok and then I’m just walking to find an empty sit and one of his friends was like oooh Sammy he was like don’t you dare and then another person was like hey Sammy’s gf and i didn’t say anything and I’m soooooooooooooooooooooooooo confused with whatever he’s doing we share long stares but i always look away first and i hope you reply to this because i have serious problems with this.Also do you think i should smile when we share on stares??

      Considering his behavior and the fact that he told people he likes you, it is safe to say that he is interested. If you like him back, ask him on a date. Since you said you did not even know him originally, he may not make another move because he might think you are not interested. If you want to be with him, you will have to make the next move and ask him out. Good luck!

    There is this guy that i’ve known for a long time and a couple of weeks ago me him and a group of other friends went to the cinema. He chose to stt next to me and during the whole film he had his arm around me and he kept patting my leg and resting his head on my head and pushing my head onto his shoulder.
    Does this mean that he likes me???
