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!

      The two of you share a strong social and emotional relationship. He is no longer in a relationship with someone else. It is likely that he is interested in developing a relationship with you. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Aliyah!

    Hi I have a crush on this guy. He is very nice to me. We are friends from work. He got me a gift when he traveled to Australia. We planned to travel together to some places. When I said I might get a new pair ofshoes, he took me to a shoes store but I didnt really want any shoes there then He said he would get the shoes for his sister. Then after he paid for the shoes, he gave it to me. If I message him, we would talk quite alot, we can talk on the phone or face time for hours, But he never starts a conversation with me unless he needs my help on his work. Im wondering if he likes me back or Im just a little sister to him.

    Hello! I’m asking this because i don’t want to get hurt because of him, again.
    It is this guy friend that we got to know each other 1 yr ago. We flirted a lot via messages and had dates too. We were really okay. But unexpecedly, he got a girlfriend since i started notice him changing.
    A few mths before now, we got to work together. During these times, his relationship with his gf is not good and they’re on the edge of breaking up. I think he loves her a lot like i loves him. The problem is that recently, he confuses me again with his unexpected actions like skinships, touches my hand, brushing his legs to mine in the reason of making me itchy, or many things like that. But he is not contacting me personally via msgs like before, not opening up his problems as much as he does to other friends. I can’t decide whether he is really interested in me or playing with me again.
    Please help me giving an opinion, admin.

      His behaviors are manifestations of his attraction to you. He is attempting to nourish a physical relationship with you, though he does not want to communicate with you because he is in a relationship. Do not attempt to nourish this relationship at this time. If his relationship naturally ends, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Ariel!

    Hi, I like this guy and we’ve known each other a few years but accepted he wasn’t interested and became friends. At a party we got on well, he said I was stunning. We talked and flirted. When dancing he hugged me tightly on the dance floor. When leaving, I kissed him on the cheek goodbye and he pulled me close for a tight lingering hug. I saw him at another party a few weeks later and he didn’t really engage much with me but chatted a lot with everyone else. It kind of felt like he was avoiding me. I found out that his friends told him earlier in the night that I still liked him and apparently he said nothing. On the dance floor he appeared to keep moving away from me. Sometimes he danced near and look at me, but not close enough to dance together. As the night ended, I approached him to say goodbye. We hugged and then he said in my ear “it was good to see you” and kissed me on the cheek. Now I’m confused about his feelings and behaviour. Is he interested, not interested, embarrassed, playing a game or perhaps I read too much into things? It is only the last to parties physical contact has started between us. The first party, none of his close friends were there either. Thank you.

      He is certainly attracted to you. His behaviors are indications of his uncertainty and his fears. He is not playing a game with you. He is uncertain of your feelings toward him If you want to nourish a relationship with him, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. His behaviors were out of his shyness and anxiety, and they were not reflections of you or your behaviors. Have a great day, Shakira!

    So I really like this guy. He is my best friends brother lol. I am friends with both of them though :). I have liked him for a while and recently I told his sister. She was really happy and she told me this:
    His parents asked him if he liked me and he said I was “alright”.
    Also when we all hung out last week he sang to me(his voice is amazing by the way)and after he told me he only sings for special people. I really like him as a person. He is really kind and fun and energetic. Does he like me back? His sister is trying to find out for me lol. Partners in crime.

    I have a crush on this guy I met on the bus 3 years ago, I only met him 3 more times after that, where I eventually gave him my number. He always tries to make me laugh. There were more than enough times where we would stop talking just to stare at eachother. Yesterday I realized he talked about me to both of his parents, even though I have only met one of them the day before, especially about what I plan to do with my future. He teases me a lot. We hung out once at his house, and we both couldn’t stop laughing or making jokes during the time I was there. I’m pretty sure the guy likes me, but i’m not sure.

    Hi my name is Kianah and I have a crush at my school and I know he likes me because I asked him out twice and the first time I asked him out he said he would but he was stuck in a relationship then come past about a month later me and my friend was talking about and he kinda heard so he was passing by and I told her to shut up because I did not want him to hear us and he tapped me on my shoulder so I turned around and he just looked at me. Then when he made it back to his seat we decided to go over there and out of nowhere she asked my crush if he wanted to go out with me and he said maybe… Maybe I do…maybe I don’t but I’m not telling you to my friend but the thing is before he said anything he started glancing at me for a while.

      He feels a strong social connection with you. You are attracted to him and he is likely attracted to you. If he is in a relationship, then do not attempt to harm his relationship. If he is single, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. You will strengthen your relationship as you spend additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Kianah!

    My crush is really sweet, and i don’t know if he likes me or not. Everyone says that he likes this other girl. But my ankle is sprained and he always offers to get me a chair and always asks me if I’m feeling better or if I’m okay. We always joke around and laugh. But he hangs around the other girl too. Please help me, I don’t know if he likes me or not

    I’m gay. I love this girl in my class, she’s questioning her sexuality but she’s showing all these signs. But she says she likes me as a friend. I believe her, I’m just hoping she might’ve liked me at one point.

      She has shared her thoughts and feelings with you. It is certainly possible that she once had feelings for you. She may find that her feelings are growing. However, give her time to determine what she wants for her future. Continue to share your kindness and compassion with her at all times. It is always beneficial to nourish strong friendships. Have a great day, Someone!

    So there’s this guy that I really like. About 5 months ago, I told him that I liked him and he said that he liked me too but only a little bit. He said that I was the first person that he liked and he only liked me because we had so much in common. He also bought me a birthday gift and whenever we talk, we’d talk for hours. Recently I was still wondering if he liked me still. One time, i was going to meet my friends afer class and i saw this guy walk out of the door at the same time that my crush did. When I chose to say hi to the guy first, my crush just said the guys name and walked out of the class. What does that mean, if anything? Sometimes I can’t tell if he likes me or not. A few days ago, he offered to walk me home because he wanted to talk to me more and he carried the things I was holding and refused to let me carry them. Does this mean anything? Another time, i playfully punched him and i told him he could do the same to me but he replied by saying “you know I won’t do that to you”. He’s also very introverted and doesn’t really express his feelings, if he has any. Whenever my friends confront him about me, he always ignores it. Why is it so hard to say no? If he can’t say no to my friends, does it mean that he may like me?

      It is certainly possible that he is interested in developing a relationship with you. He cares for you and wants to develop a friendship with you. He is shy, so it is possible that he is interested in maintaining a strong relationship with you. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Grace!
