By on August 19, 2018

You went on a wonderful first date, and you think that everything went perfectly. The only problem is that you don’t know if he actually likes you back or not. Now, you are waiting to see if he calls you are not. As the hours and days start to pass by, you start to wonder if the date wasn’t as great for him as it was for you. Now, you want to now the signs he is interested in you after first date. Was he as into you as you were into him?

Foolproof Signs That a Guy Is Into You

Before you start to panic, think about your date. Do you really like him? Is there anything about his personality that you don’t like? It is easy to become infatuated with someone, but there may have been signs on the first date that he isn’t right for you. If you did notice indications that he wasn’t the one, then don’t worry about whether he likes you back or not. Most likely, he noticed those signs as well and is hopefully smart enough to realize it. You don’t want to waste a lot of energy on having a relationship if you realize from day one that you won’t end up with him forever.

If you did think that he was perfect for you, then you need to find out if he likes you back. The following indications are signs he is interested in you after first date and might end up calling you for a second date.

1. The Eyes

When someone likes you, they tend to look into your eyes. If you like someone, it feels like you cannot keep your eyes off them. Think back to your date. Did he gaze longingly into your eyes? When you walked away, did his gaze follow you wherever you go? If his gaze always followed you and he made a lot of eye contact, then he might like you. If he never focused on you or always watched everyone else in the room, then your chances are not looking good.

2. Mirroring

This happens when someone likes you as a friend, lover or family member. When you are interested in a conversation and like someone, you unconsciously mirror their body language. If they lean back, you lean back. If you cross your arms, they cross their arms. This type of mirroring is a sign that he likes you on some level. He might just like you as a friend, but he could definitely have stronger feelings than that.

3. Touch

Human touch is a key flirting technique. On a first date, this will often be a touch on your elbow or shoulder. He might brush your hair aside or try to hold your hand. Any type of touching like this is a sign that he subconsciously wants to be closer to you. If his touches are more forward like on your leg or something more sexual, then he might just want a one-night stand instead of a real relationship. Keep in mind that a shy guy might not touch you at all and could still like you, so you really have to account for his personality.

4. The Lean

Signs Your Date Really Likes You on Your First Date

Watch people talking at work or at the mall. Notice how they stand. When people are interested in the conversation, they stand closer to each other. If they are sitting down, they will even lean into the conversation. Likewise, someone who just wants to escape the conversation will often lean or turn away. If you keep your eyes open, you will probably notice a co-worker turn their feet toward the door when the boss is upset with them. Your date is the same way. If he is interested in you on the date, he will lean into the conversation with his body.

5. He Listens and Asks Questions

The conversation can also be a clue. If he is really interested in you, he will ask a lot of questions because he wants to know you better. He will also remember many of the details because he cares. If he only talks about himself or forgets things that you just told him, then his mind isn’t focused on the date. It is possibly that he is just really nervous or distracted by something at work, but it isn’t a good sign if he doesn’t seem interested in what you have to say.

6. He Tries to Impress You

If He Likes You On The First Date

In kindergarten, a guy might try to do a bike trick to impress you. As guys get older, their techniques for impressing a lady change. He might tell you about his great job or car. If he is still working on his goals, he might share all his hopes and dreams about what he is going to do. In most cases, a guy who likes you will want you to think well of him. He will try to frame all of his stories and achievements in the best light so that you like him.

7. Laughter

Laughter is a sign of enjoyment, but it is also a way to disperse nervous energy. Either way, a laughter-filled date is good news. He is either nervous around you because he likes you, or he laughs a lot because you two have a good chemistry.

Think about what happened at the end of the date to see if he is interested in you. Did he try to hold your hand or kiss you? Did he tell you that he really wanted a second date? If he avoided talking about a second date, then he probably doesn’t want one. If he tried to hold your hand or made it clear that he is going to call you within the next couple of days, then he probably likes you.

When a guy really wants a relationship with you, he will call you. If he doesn’t text or call within the first few hours, he is probably just afraid of looking needy. When your date does most or all of the things on this list, he probably likes you and wants another date. You just have to be patient, and it will happen!

    I mean this guy online and when for the first date today. We were at this brunch restaurant, ordered food and start eating while talking. He did have alot of eye contact, we talk about everything and laughed alot too (my cheek still hurts from it )!!! He offer to pay the bill and i let him. We didn’t know where to go after but i did say i dont want to go back home yet so he drive me to a outlook and we walk around. I was walking on rocks and he accompanied me and held my hand so i dont fall. Even when i was walking on a slope he held my hand like a boyfriend would!! But he didn’t held on to it tho.
    When we were on our way driving back, we joke around for abit and tickle him, he lock his arm close to my hand so i wouldn’t be able to pull away and eventually lock hands with me!!! He didn’t let go even until we are below my apartment!! he held on to my hand for a little longer and we kissed. I was so happy but i am not sure how he feels.
    I ask him to text me when he reach home and he did but the conversation kinda stay cold from there. Short reply and long waiting time and the worst is he looked at my msg and did not reply me…..
    I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANS?? he is into me or what?

      His behavior while you were together is an indication of his feelings toward you. When you were no longer spending time together in person, it is possible that he was working or doing something else that prevented him from messaging you. Take this time to determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Suki!

    I met this guy on tinder and he’s super nice. The first date was honestly lovely and we ended it on a warm, long hug. He did all the signs, like look me in the eyes when we talk, move his body towards mine when we walked and even held his face closer to mine when I was saying something (but I’m kinda short and he’s super tall, I honestly don’t know if he can hear me up there). Here’s the thing thought, I’m getting mixed messages. I wasted 2 days worrying about why he wouldn’t text or anything, so I took the courage to write first. It turned into a sweet conversation, he even told me he really diggs talking to me, but the directness didn’t seem like his style. Still, Thank god he asked for the second date, so we agreed on meeting again. But it feels like I always have to inniciate conversation. It also feels like he’s way too into me for the time we talked. It’s a strange worry but it’s making me uneasy. We do have a lot in common, I believe our humour matches up nicely and it feels natural being around him(from the information I’ve gathered in the 4 hours we spend together). But I don’t know, I don’t trust it moving so fast. Am I being dummy insecure or is the guy being way too into me a red flag?

      The two of you seem to have developed a strong relationship. You met on Tinder, which means that he may or may not be looking for a long term relationship. Make a decision about what you want for your future. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. You may find benefit in speaking with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Whothis!

    Last Friday we went out for a movie. Supposed to be three of us but one if our friend couldn’t join. So, i thought that he will cancel the plan after class. I wait and wait but he didn’t mention it. After class, we walk together to the mall. Any one of us didn’t mention is that our first date or just a movie day out. While we walk, without realized I hokd his arm while walking. I thought he’s going to stay away bcs he don’t like i hold his arm, but whenever i accidentally grab his arm, he just let it happen. While in cinema, i sat close to him bcs it was so cold plus both of us didn’t bring any jacket. He also sat close to me. Idk if he likes me or not. But for sure we laughed a lot that day. While i wait for my car, we didn’t talk much bcs coincidentally i met my senior and she keep talking with me until my car arrived. We only say bye to each other. We didn’t text each other after that day bcs he’s not type of person that always on phone. Hmmmm… What u think?

      He shared his thoughts and feelings with you. It is likely that he is interested in nourishing a relationship with you. You feel comfortable with him, and he is available for you for that security. Determine what you want for your future of this relationship. Spend additional time with him in person, as this will strengthen your relationship. Have a great day, Carrot!
