What Does it Mean When a Guy Looks Into Your Eyes

By on February 28, 2017

Sometimes, it’s really hard to read what a guy is thinking or feeling. Often times, we may think they feel a certain way about us, only to find out they feel completely different. It’s not only frustrating, it’s downright confusing.

But there are ways to tell just what a guy means by their body language. Specifically, when they look into your eyes. Sometimes a guy may be lost in thought and randomly looking at you, and other times they mean something specific. Here’s what it means when a guy looks into your eyes.

  1. They like your eyes.

If you have striking eyes or very unique eyes, guys are going to look at them. It’s just like if you have any other feature that’s out of the ordinary. Don’t read too much into it if you have very bright eyes and a guy is looking into them.

  1. They think you’re attractive.

Another meaning of a guy looking into your eyes is that they think you’re attractive. People tend to make eye contact with people they really enjoy looking at.

  1. They like you.

If a guy is really into you, he’s definitely going to be looking into your eyes. You can also tell they like you by how close they’re standing, how much they talk to you, and if they ask deep, personal questions.

  1. They’re trying not to look elsewhere.

If you’ve got a really low cut shirt on and a guy is making long eye contact with you, chances are, he’s trying not to look down at your boobs. This is a good thing! It means he’s a gentleman.

  1. They’re just being polite.

Eye contact is polite in conversation. If someone is talking, it’s the right thing to do to make eye contact with them and if a guy is doing so while you’re talking, they could just be acting politely toward you.

  1. They’re trying to make an impression on you.

We remember the people who forge a connection within us. Meaning, if someone is giving us long, consistent eye contact, we’ll remember them better than we would someone who doesn’t. Therefore, if a guy wants you to remember him, he’ll likely be looking you right in the eyes.

You have to pay a lot of attention to what else a guy is doing when they look into your eyes. Reading their other body language can help you realize just what it really means when a guy looks into your eyes.

    So there is this guy that i like in school, and everytime he says :
    -Oo, whatsup?
    He looks directly in my eyes, even when we are not talking he is always looking at me and smiling, One time while i was opening my biology book in the classroom, he was with his friend, it looked like he asked him a question, and the first person he saw was me, and again he said ” Hi!” Looked me in my eyes and smiled, it always happens.

    Okay so there’s this boy we are both in high school and he always looks into my eyes and puts his arm around my waist but his eyes are intense but also warm and friendly and he gives me a sexy look and I just stare into his eyes as well. And he always strokes my chin and bops my nose. Today he cupped my face with his hands. I just don’t understand we are friends but I dont know what he wants. Can you tell me?

    so i like this guy and we’re both in middle school and we sat near each other and he turns his body to face me a lot and he sits with his legs spread out and one time he extended his legs all the way so they touched my backpack and he’s stared at me quite a few times. one rule he stared at me in the eyes for a long time and never looked away. he also sat really close to me one time when there were other places to sit and one time he also stood near me. he never talks to me though and i think he’s just shy. does he like me?

    So there is this man that I know at my church but we are not close friends just mostly an acquaintances and I see him at social gatherings. I have known him for 4 years and the situation I am about to describe has happened during this time period.  First time I noticed something is when I was talking to him with another man  and him together, he did not look at me that much but stared down at his notebook and kept smiling. He was rather quiet while the other guy and I were engaged in the conversation. Later I will catch him several times stare at me when I left my seat to use the bathroom during church service ( Could see through the windows). One day he came up to my car to talk to me while I was inside and he was outside got really close bended down to my eye level and was smiling and asking me questions. Then after he walked away with some distance away we both turned around and looked at each other with smiles on our faces. Another time while I was tending to some kids, I turned around to catch him looking at me with these lustful eyes . He was bended over on a table acting like he was writing something only to be staring at me. I saw him and quickly looked away. But his eyes had this longing look on it. Many times too he has come up to me in church to talk and he got really in my personal space with a smile on his face with which he will look at the ground and then look at me but then  I move back a little and to the side so people did not think something was going on between us. Recently at parties I have seen him  stealing glances at me from afar with a closed smile and when I saw him I quickly look down or away not to show sign of interest. At one time too when he was leaving a party he got close to me by the side and whispered bye in a slow manner with a smile like it was our little secret. This caught me off guard so I did not look at him but said bye quickly and nicely. But then still caught of guard and wondering what just happened, I looked across the room to see him smiling and looking at me.But I quickly looked away. The crazy thing is that we are both married to others so I am trying to avoid problems but it seems that he is attracted to me and I am fancing that but trying to be careful. Another time at another social gathering he stared at me and I looked at him only  for me again to to quickly look down. The same day when my husband and I were talking and smiling  at each other he was looking at us and when I caught him I quickly looked down.when I looked seconds later he looked away. The most recent situation is after church he walked toward me and stood really really close to me looked at me in the eye with no smile but raising is eyebrows at me like he expected me to say something. I had my head lowered like I was looking at other things so when he got really close I raised my eyes and eyebrows to him with a smile and said hi but did it in a weird manner to signal to him what does he want from me when he did not say anything. Then he looked down slowly and smiled to himself and walked away without saying anything. So I have been trying to figure what that meant. The next church service I did not look at him at all but I could see him looking and stealing glances at me from afar. He noticed I did not give him attention because the last encounter was really awkward. I really want to know if he really likes me, or want me or not. I have avoided getting close to him or his family partly bc of this. Please advice…

      The two of you are in relationships. It is perfectly acceptable to speak with him at church. Share your kindness and compassion with him. Focus your emotional and romantic energy on your partner. Strengthen your relationship with your partner by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Ciara!

    I am a single mom of a 6 year old daughter. I have a crush on her first grade teacher.

    The first time I met him he looked nervous like he was about to throw up, so I avoided eye contact (could’ve just been nervous bc meet teacher day). When I pick her up from school he smiled really big and started telling me how sweet my daughter is. This is the moment I realized I liked him. He’s kind, sweet, handsome and adorable. After this, I didn’t want to speak to him or make eye contact bc I’m a little shy and he’s my daughters teacher and I don’t want to flirt with him in front of all the other parents. Plus the other female teachers stare at me and smile which make me uncomfortable.

    So I attempted picking her up w out looking at him. I could feel him looking at me and positioning himself where I was about to walk as if he wanted to talk to me. He also seems like a generally social person. He finally called me over to talk to him, and he told me something my daughter told him and said he thought it was sooo cute. I spoke to him quickly and ended conversation before I said something stupid.

    The next day, he called her name in a stern voice after watching me come in. At first his tone startled me but it didn’t seem to bother my daughter. When I looked over he was staring at me and stared straight into my eyes. It felt like we had a deep understanding of each other as well as a silent conversation.

    However I could be wrong. He wasn’t smiling though and it seemed to last forever although the whole thing probably lasted 30sec to a minute. His expression never changed. I kept looking away and smiling when I looked back. At the end he gave me a smile and I turned around and left.

    Complicated bc he’s my daughters teacher. I’ve never experienced this before. My daughter adores him. I don’t know if he just really adores my daughter and Is a nice guy or if he likes me too.

    Oh yeah, and last week my daughter said he told her, “if I had a daughter, I’d want her to be just like you.”

    I separated with my boyfriend and l used to bother his other friend to help me fix our relationship. It did not workout because the other girl he was cheating on me is pregnant. Now his friend visited me we had long chat about life in general. I like him he is well cultured and respectful, l used to comment on him with my friends. Now on this long chat he asked me to look at him in the eyes 3 times which l failed. What does this mean? Am also scared he has qualities of a man l have ever desired. I don’t know if l should continue seeing him or he can take me as a destitute.

    I have a male colleague whom I was very close with and we suddenly drifted apart due to an awkward situation. We are slowly picking up the pieces and started talking more, as usual he always look into my eyes when we talk and I do not understand is that why when I walked towards his direction to the copier room, he looked up and straight at me and I looked back, tried to smile a little, he did not smile back instead he kept that intense look into my eyes that I had to look away. Can you tell me what does that mean?

        Hi, thank you for the reply. I tried making conversation with him today but seems that he was annoyed by my silly question. I am not sure if I tell him how I have been feeling is going to turn things to a different direction? My feelings for him is really deep and I have been hiding and I dare not approach him with my feelings for him and end up awkward.

      The two of you are not dating, so he is free to take whatever action that he feels comfortable taking. He asked your permission, which means he is aware of your feelings. He may want to develop a relationship with you, but he is not focusing his emotional energy on someone else. Determine what you want for your future. Perhaps speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Anon!
