    10 Signs a Guy Likes You But is Trying Not to Show it

    By on April 18, 2016

    So, you want to find out if a guy likes you even though he might be hiding it? Well, you’ve come to the right place! For some reason, guys try not to show it when they like a girl. I think they think it makes them seem less manly, even though that’s not the case at all.

    Guys can try all they want to hide the fact that they like us. But one thing that we know and they probably don’t is this: body language can tell you a lot more about a person’s feelings than they ever will.

    Understanding a guy’s body language is the first step to determining if he likes you but is trying not to show it. Here are some subtle signs that he’s really into you even if he’s hiding it.

    1. He’s Always Around, but Just Out of Reach

    If he seems to show up just about everywhere you are – even if it’s just to run a quick errand – he likes you but might not want you to know. When a guy always finds a way to just SEE you, he likes you. But by keeping his distance he’s able to see you and get the joy out of it without letting you in on the fact that he might actually like you.

    1. He Seems to Know Everything About You

    he-seems-to-know-everything-about-you

    If he remembers your birthday, the fact that you hate pineapple on your pizza, and that your favorite snack is chocolate covered raisins, then he definitely likes you. When a guy goes through that much trouble to remember all of those important things about you, he isn’t just looking at you as a friend. But since he’s keeping his knowledge subtle and only bringing it up when the opportunity arises, he’s trying to keep his feelings for you on the down low.

    1. He Keeps Himself and His Place Clean for You

    If you’ve happened to notice that whenever you know you’ll be around him he seems to be clean shaved, freshly showered, and smells amazing, he’s into you. Another way to tell if a guy like you but is trying not to show it is if you’ve ever been to his house and it’s really, really clean and his room especially is extra tidy. Guys aren’t naturally really clean people. If he’s making an effort to be clean, he’s showing that he likes you by trying to impress you – even if he’s not saying he likes you.

    1. He Gives You Very Small, but Great Gifts

    he-gives-you-very-small-but-great-gifts

    By small, I mean nothing that you would feel the need to repay in anyway. So no jewelry, clothes, or the likes. If he goes bring you your favorite smoothie, candy, or even a book he thinks you might like, then he likes you. He’s being subtle enough to make you think he’s just being a nice friend, but these actions from a guy means that he wants so much more from you. Gifts are not something that anyone really gives another person without having more than “just friends” feelings for them.

    1. He Calls Other Girls, “My Friend…”

    he-calls-other-girls-my-friend

    If you two are having a conversation and he’s talking about other girls and mentions them by name and he almost always says, “my friend…,” before their name, he likes you but is trying to hide it. If he didn’t like you, there should be no reason for him clarifying that the girls he’s mentioning are just friends. He’s subtly pointing out the fact that he’s NOT interested in any of them. Meaning he’s got eyes for someone else. And I bet that would be you.

    1. He’s Always Looking at You

    hes-always-looking-at-you

    When you’re walking around a party, get together, or even at school and you somehow always seem to catch his eye, he’s been looking at you. When a guy spends that much of his time looking at you it’s because he likes you. Staring at someone from across the room is an age-old telltale sign that he likes you and is trying not to show it. Another key signal is if he immediately averts his gaze and pretends like he wasn’t looking. This for SURE means he likes you and really doesn’t want you to know.

    1. He Wards off His Friends

    he-wards-off-his-friends

    If you’re talking to him and he mentions that you should steer clear of any (or all) of his friends because of some reason or another, it’s his subtle way of keeping you off the market so he has a chance when he’s finally ready to show you that he likes you. He also might make you stay away from his friends because they know he likes you and he doesn’t want you knowing.

    1. He Almost Always Agrees with You

    When someone agrees with almost everything you say it’s because they like you. If you’ve also noticed that you seem to get your way around him more or he says one thing and then says the opposite because you speak up, he likes you and is trying to hide it.

    1. He’s Wishy-Washy

    hes-wishy-washy

    People that are trying to hide their feelings sometimes don’t know they’re showing it. But as soon as he notices that he’s being too nice to you or making it apparent that he’s into you, he might pull back and actually be mean or withdrawn. So if you’ve noticed that a guy is being really wishy-washy with the way he talks to you and the way he treats you, it could be because he likes you but doesn’t want you to know.

    1. He Asks Intimate Details about You

    he-asks-intimate-details-about-you

    By intimate details I’m talking about personal information on your family, hobbies, and  likes/dislikes. If someone just wants to be your friend they’re not concerned about finding out that information right away. If he likes you, he’s digging and finding it for himself.

    When you want to know if a guy likes you but is trying not to show it, these 10 signs are a perfect place to start. Do you have any more signs that you’ve noticed before?

      One of my friend show me love even proposed me once and then i end up to his proposal in fun way with out making him insulted. Even after that he use to very close to me. He even made many excuses to touch me. But after some months his attitude changed. Now he keep an eye on me what i am doing but dont care aboit me like dont ask me if i am suffering or having problem in studies. When we sit together he touch me but the caring is lost. I found him touching another our female friend.Is he good for me ? I did any wrong ? Do he only love to be touchy ?

        It is possible that his feelings have changed. If he is touching other women, then he may be interested in developing a relationship with them. Take this time to determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Komal!

        It is possible that the separation of sections have caused him to think about you less often. It is possible that he is confused or uncertain about his feelings. Take this time to determine what you want for this relationship. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Jennifer!

      So there is a boy The boy often stares at me .he tries to ignore this thing . A no. Of times we held a eye contact with each other. Only about 3 times he gives me a smile in whole year . We never talk to each other. When he say res at me he seems to be in different moods. When I came in front of him he will change his behavior and starts talking to someone else but stares at me . Sometimes I felt that he wants to start a relation with me and sometimes he behaves like he didn’t knows me . I think he wants to start a reaction with me but I think he is having fear that I’ll left him like his last gf. I had also noticed him that he stares at me from his school bus as he sits on last seat of bus . But the question what am I to do

        He has a girlfriend. There is no reason for you to attempt to establish a relationship with him. There is no reason to attempt to harm his or her emotions. Allow him to fade from your thoughts. If his relationship naturally ends and he reaches out to you, then determine your thoughts and feelings at that time. For now, look inward and determine what you want with your future without him. Have a great day, Amy!

        Take this time to determine what kind of relationship you want for your future. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. If he is unwilling or unable to meet the emotional standards that you require, then decide what action you want to take. You may find benefit in spending additional time with him. Have a great day, Danielle!
