    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!

    puffchest

    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!

      So there’s this guy at my school who rides my bus, he sits next to me on the way there and the way back even though there are empty seats all around me. He also asked me last week what I would say if someone asked me to be their valentine, he also put his arm around my shoulder but then said: I just wanted to see your reaction. What does all this mean?

      My crush and I were hanging At his house and he put his arm around my shoulder while watching tv and every time he got up and sat back down he inched his way closer every time until eventually we were right against eachother lol. Every time we hang he does this. And his friend was at his house one of the times we were together and his friend sat by me and my crush went and sat right between us lol. I catch him looking at me and when I’m talking he always watches me. He also put his head on my shoulder and put his hand on the top of my leg. Does it sound like he likes me? His friend was also making fun of him for “having his girlfriend over” lol

      Hi so this is a while back, but when me and a guy we’re hanging out, he kept glancing at me and smiling. Then later when I tried to run with his phone to play, he grabbed me around the waist and then he wants to hug. Does this mean that he likes me or not?

      I have a crush on this boy. Today he told me to move away because he didn’t want to hurt me since he was gonna throw a snowball at this kid behind me, does that mean he cares for me or something ? Also, moments later after that happened he threw a snowball at me which missed and I challenged him and threw some back. He threw some back but I don’t feel like he wanted to throw it at my face or to hurt me , what does this mean ? I also catch him looking at me in class but classes later I see him talking to a girl , does he like me or not ?

        This definitely shows that he likes you. When he talks to another girl, he’s trying not to show that he likes you. Guys will always do this if there nervous.

      I have a crush on this guy, but we never really talked, but I cant stop staring at him. I realized that when he catches me looking at him, he will take a peep and then lick his lips and sometimes bite it. I don’t know if he likes me? and should I tell him? and how should I tell him, by text? or face to face? helpppp

        If he is making suggestive faces and gestures toward you, then it is clear that he is interested in developing a relationship with you. Take this time to determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Decide if you believe his actions are appropriate. 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, Mellyleon!

            Determine what is appropriate. If you believe that it is appropriate for you to reach out to him, then do so. If you believe that it would be better if you left the situation alone, then do so. Have a great day, Mellyleon!

      Hi! I m in a relationship with a guy that is deeply in love with me and i feel like something is not working between us. During our last 2 dates, i felt like we were talking about basic stuffs and nothing important. I don t have enough courage to tell this to him face to face, and i look for ways to let him know how i feel. I deeply care about him, and i just wanted to know if i could write him a letter about how i feel. I don t want to boost his ego, i just wanted to save our relationship. Thank you for the answer!

      So I dated this guy like 2 years ago and we tried being friends but it didn’t work. So I decided to start talking to him again and my friend said he was blushing and he kept smiling when I was talking to him. Maybe he was just being his goofy self and I’m pretty sure he lost feelings for me, I never stopped liking him and I really don’t know anymore, so what should I do?

      Ok, so he’s like super smart and he always asks me how my classes are going and whether or not I need help. Also, he enjoys teasing me. I feel like I’ve caught him looking at me a couple times, but maybe I’m just crazy. He’s also put his arm around me when I was stressed once…..but he hasn’t explicitly said anything that could mean he likes me….idk I’m confuseddd

      I have a crush on a guy but he’s sorta shy around me, we talk sometimes but it’s always hi and he hugs me sometimes or he teases me like pat my head. A bunch of girls like him too, because he’s kind of popular, I catch him staring at me sometimes but he quickly looks away, one time he put his arm around me and started walking with me, we had the same class. Then he said “gotta go” and patted my head and walked away I yelled out ” I’m not a puppy” and he laughed. Does that mean he likes me back and what should I do??

      Hey so there’s this guy I like who used to be on and off with one of my best friends. I know the girl code but I just can’t help myself. So we talked for about a month or two. My friend said some stuff about and him so he decided to block me. After about a week or so he called me at 12am saying he was sorry I said you put me through hell this week and he said we’re not even that close, we ended up finishing the conversation at 2:30am. When I told him I liked him he said that we were very close friends. I was so confused cause he kept sending me mixed signals. A month he went out with that same friend again they broke up over the summer though. I had stopped liking him but when we came back to school I saw him and the emotions cam flooding back. We talk all the time he grabbed my hand to move me out the way when he could have easily told me to move. He always tickles me at my waist and it’s really cute. Sometimes I catch him looking at me and I turn away and laugh, I look again and he’s still looking. He also said that I was pretty. He doesn’t talk to other girls the way he talks to me but I want to know if he actually likes me or he’s just being friendly. Also is it bad if when we are talking he leans against the wall looking at my eyes and lips???

        He is interested in developing a relationship with you. He likely is confused or uncertain about your feelings. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Allow him to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Rose!
