5 Ways To Know For Sure He Likes You

Updated on July 2, 2007

You like him. You like him a lot - so much, in fact, that you'd love it if your relationship moved to a new, more intimate level.

But - and this is a big one, you don't know for sure if he feels the same way. And boy, will you feel like an idiot if you suggest the two of you start dating exclusively, only to find out he thinks of you as "just a friend."

Oy.

So how do you know, without risking terminal embarrassment by asking, whether or not he likes you as much as you like him? Here are five ways to know for sure:

He initiates communication. Whether it's via the phone, e-mail, texting, or Instant Message, if he contacts you as much or more than you get in touch with him, I've got good news for you. He likes you! Guys, in general, are not super-communicators. My husband Alex, for instance, would rather clean the bathroom with his tongue than talk on the telephone - unless he really likes the person he's talking to. I should have known that he was interested in being more than "just friends" before we started dating; ninety percent of the time, he would call me.

He just "happens" to show up where you are. There's a huge difference between a guy who manages to "coincidentally" show up at a party or other event you've been invited to and a stalker. But if he almost always just "happens" to be nearby when you get out of class, or he's a co-worker you just "happen" to keep running into in the hall or the cafeteria - don't believe his protests of innocence - he is more than a little interested in you!

You catch him looking at you - a lot. If you're out on a date with someone, and you catch him looking at you or watching you when he thinks you won't notice, he is hooked. Guys who watch their date more than they watch the movie - especially if it's not a chick flick - are deeply in like, if not in love. His expression is important, too. Up until the day he died, my father-in-law looked at my mother-in-law as if he still couldn't quite believe she'd chosen him - and they were together for over fifty years.

He makes reasons to touch you. And I don't mean sexually. I mean casually-but-often. He puts his hand on your back to help guide you into the movie theater. He brushes a strand of hair out of your face. His foot "just happens" to touch yours under the table at a restaurant. He tells you that you have dirt on your nose when you know you don't. He rests his hand on your shoulder for no reason at all. Oh, boy. Does he ever like you!

His friends know all about you. If a guy introduces you to his friends, and they know all about you, what does this tell you? Especially if the friends are being friendly and polite? Well, it'd tell me that he's been talking about you to them - a lot. It's a Guy Rule: men don't usually talk about specific women with their friends unless a) they've been recently, badly dumped or b) they're very, very interested. Since you obviously haven't dumped him - he must like you!

Men, even when they like someone, are often reluctant to make the first move and say so. So, if you like him, and you found yourself saying "Yeah, he does that" to at least four of the above signs, I say: go for it! Ask him out. Tell him you're very interested. If he's doing everything I listed above, he is a real sweetie. Grab him!

      There is this guy. I am gonna call him C. I like him more than anything in the world. We used to be friends and now he hates me ithink. I am a 7th grader and he is an 8th grader. We became friends. He started to call me babe and "ardently"touches me when ever we were to walk home. One day he chased after me after I was gonna go into my house. He asked for my number and wrote it huge on his arm. He followed me home twice. We walk the same direction after school. He was texting me and then he asks why do u like me? I tell him and then I tell him no one has a crush on me... But then he said I do. We then text more. And then way later he says he is blocking me. I started to cry and cry. A month later or a little less he walked next to me after school. I pushed him into the bushes. I then yell at him and he keeps asking what he did wrong. Around 6 o'clock at night I text him on a fake number. I said why are you trying to talk to me now? Now u hate me now u dont. He then tells me a sincere apology. It was deep. He said he then talks about how he feels bad because he doesn't like me back. I told her I don't like him because you hurt me. Then I admit to liking him to him. We then text for a while and then he never texts me again. So I text him on another fake number asking if we are friends. He said we can still be friends but I didn't believe him and I told him that. C then says you can believe that. Then he said I have a gf. And I lied and said I have a bf. Then he said I am blocking you... He lied about having a gf. I think he was jealous. He said his friends told him I am a stalker and I want him. His friend Lanie and I hate each other now

      So there is this guy he lives on the next floor. I caught him staring at me and then blushing and looking away he complements me. And every symptom u mentioned . his friends even push him towards me . his brother calls him when he sees me . but this dude never replays my message. Our mutual friend thinks he likes me but he talked to me about his crush and first gf. Is he just genuinely being friendly and we are taking it in different manner or actually what it looks like

      There's this guy I like( yes, I'm a girl) and we have every class together. Just today(he sits in front of me and one of his friends sits next to me) he leaned on my desk to talk to his friend. Something happened, and we ended up talking about Disney. He said "joe" out of no where and I was confused. I asked what, then he looked up at me( whenever we look at each other, its always eye contact) and said, "Joe Mama" then I looked away giggling, then looked back at him and he was still staring. I said, "your an idiot." And he laughed and blushed. I died. (His eyes are the prettiest shades of green and hazel, too.)

      ive known the guy for three months, and we're pretty close? we talk a lot, an he's initiated most of our conversations, and it usually lasts for hours. recently we had this pseudo-date thing (we didn't call it that but I felt like it was) where we watched musicals and a movie. while watching, we got comfortable and he started cuddling me (I responded as subtly as I could). he'd pet my hair and leave his arm around my shoulder. it was really great? but by the end of it, while he was walking me home, he said he thought he was too clingy and was afraid that people may think of us being in a relationship.. and all I could think of was "what??"

      I like this guy named (andrew) im afraid to tell him because i think he will make a big deal if it. Today he asked me if i wanted to play foot ball with him. His friend says he talks about me on the bus. He flirts with me a lot. Sometimes he asks are you okay. He also says i have to ask you some thing in high school i bet it has some thing to do with dating. He tries to make me jealous a lot. He also shows off to make me impressed. He stares at me and then when i look at him he shrugs and says what. He laughs at my jokes when they are not funny. He complements me some times. He teases me. His friends tell me that he likes me, well more than like. I don't get why he likes me because im a tom boy. So i think he likes me ( its kind of obvious).

      I have a friend that is a guy and I hung out with him last weekend. We used to like eahother but than he friend zoned me bc he didn't want to break our Relashionship. When we we're hanging out and I had to leave I hugged him and than I hugged the other guy that was there (one of his friends). Before I walked away he (my "ex") hugged me again longer this time. Than stood there and than grabbed be hugging me again. I talk to him almost everyday and we hang once a month bc we don't go the the same school. But he says he likes this other girl. What was the hugs and flirting all about?

      Iv been in the same class as this guy for 12 years but this year we're in different classes! Iv always liked him and when i was in my last year in primary school he asked me if i would go out with him, but I said no basically because i was afraid, but now i talk to him every once in a while and he sometimes comes into my workplace where i work part time and i talk to him there, but he isnt really the type that would text girls anyway as he is kind of shy, but i dont know if he likes me back , nd i dont want to embarress myself in front of him , what should i do?

      Theres this guy in my class, he is kind of my friend but I don't talk to him much a day (4 or 5 times maybe) but is (somehow...) always around. then our class reads out loud for hw. I often tend to catch him facing me even though he is far in the other side of the class. after reading, he compliments how good a reader I am and then asks (or tries) to shake my hand. Even if I don't shake his hand, he still tries something like asking if I CAN ELBOW FIVE HIM?? Every Day. I find him kind of unusual though...

      My wife has been a cheat. We have been married for 22 years. In the last few years we have been having problems because i never knew she was cheating on me till a friend of mine saw her with the guy in a hotel. She has been rude to me and everything about her has changed all because of a guy whom i dont know. Just early this year she was calling for a divorce accusing me of assault. Then she called and told them I beat her with a belt. Thank God I met this spell lady ''priestess Ifaa" who a friend introduced to me. It was so pain that my family is tearing apart. I would even go to jail but this spell lady consulted the spirits and told me that the guy place a spell on her for her to distroy me and marry him. This hurt me so much and i asked the spell lady to make the spell reverse. I did everything to make sure the spell was done and on few days later the spell started manifesting because we were back together and we were happy just like the day we got married the reverse spell this spell lady did made the guy go far and never come close because he is a demon. She could not work or support herself that's why she was acting that way. This spell lady is great, she has rescued my family. i met the spell lady though her email ID

      priestessifaa@yahoo.com. meet her and get your solved.

      I like this guy, Hector.Well, I think I love him.Ever since the first day of 7th grade in Instructional Tech, I said simple "Thank you" and ever since I have been really nice and kind.He started touching my hair,wiping my computer screen,touching my face,getting a strand out of my face,hugging me,holding my hand,smiling at me,and for SURE making me blush.The thing is he always hugs this other girl Sarah.I confessed to him (that I like,well love him). And he didn't respond back.This happened after I told him I like him.Which now leaves me with three questions.Does he like me? Is he flirting? Does he mean it?

      So I'm friends with this guy an I never knew he liked me and I always had a tiny crush on him but he always referred to me as his best friend.so ur thought he didn't like me. So we became the best of friends and after a while I began developing feeling for him again but stronger. So he asked me to prom and everything so at prom I tell him how I feel and he tells me that he always liked me but thinks that we should be friends now. I really like him possibly love an don't know what I should do. I know he likes me but he says he thinks we should be friends and I want to be more. Whenever I touch him he jerks away,but puts himself in a position to where I would touch him again. He invites me places but when I get there he ditches me and act like I don't exist and he refuses to text me first.I need help!!!!!!!!!!!

      Sorry to contradict you, but these are not signs that he likes you. People are all different. There's a guy who I've been out for coffee with a few times and he showed all these signs. I finally let him know how I felt and he shot me down. Some people just have friendly admiration for one another, it's not always romantic.

      Say, if a girl likes a boy, and she tells him by writing a note, and he just shrugs, what does that mean? Plus, the girl and the guy are pretty good friends, and they are always touching (ie, punching, and kicking and stuff like that), and everyone thinks that the guy and the girl should go out

We aren't like best friends or anything. We've never even eaten lunch together. We sit next together in a certain class and he talks to me like just regular. Not like what class do you have next or who's your Math teacher. He teases me ocassionally. I really like him and I'm sooooooo confused. HELP!

      I go to this Saturday school and there's this guy in my class that I really like. He would often glance at me and I would do the same. When I look at him, he always looks up and finds that I was staring at him and vice versa. Our eye contact would only last for a second and I would look away. We barely even talk because he's always hanging with my best friend. It's obvious that she likes him but I'm not sure if he even likes her. He told me he only likes her as a sister. What is that suppose to mean? But anyways, it's obvious that she likes him. None of my friends know I like him. Me and my other friends knows my best friend likes him so we like tease her about how they're such a cute couple and etc. but they don't know that I really really like him. He's been on my mind 24/7 and I can't stop thinking about him. Everything I do reminds me of him. I was thinking about tell him my feelings but I'm a little hesitant. What happens if he doesn't like me? Only as a friend? It'll just be awkward on our friendship...A little confused on what to do?..

      i know this guy, but i haven't known him for long. it has only been about 3 months. at first he was really nice to me, but now he is kinda mean to me. He always throws stuff and me and calls me names, he knows it won't hurt my feelings but I don't know if he likes me or not. he does things like pushes me off me chair, or drags my chair while i'm in it, or throws anything he can find down my shirt. i catch him dead staring at me when i'm talking to my friends. I don't know if he likes me or if he is just being a guy. what do you think?

      Missing love 5 years ago

      Ok so I was working at on Halloween at a zombi shoot. One of the guys was flirting with me and I started to like him. I was sitting on a crate (5 feet off the ground)and he came up behind me and said that he wouldn't let me fall that made me blush and he saw it. After a while of him talking I took off my face mask he was worried that i was going to get hit so he put the face mask back on my face. He asked me what I like to do and I said sing and I sang him a song, he said it was good. Before the last group of people went though he gave me a hug and I swear my heart skipped a beat. I grabbed my stuff then left after I said goodbye. Before I walked out the door his mom called him by a different name then he told me. I was a little hurt that he lied but once I got into the car my mom told me that he said I had an amazing voice. I really want to see him again but I want to know if he liked me or if he was just bored. Please help me

      I forgot to mention that he randomly came over to my office last week to give me the digital picture frame he won at the Christmas raffle. It was a bit out of the blue.

      HopelesslyInLove 5 years ago

      I started working at company as an Associate Engineer in August 2011. A couple of weeks in, this guy moved into the office across from me. He was recently promoted to Director of Product Management. So as far as line of management goes, our most common manager is the Sr. Vice President. So technically he's not my manager. He's also 35 and I'm 25.

      Now.. to the details. I never really officially met him. We started talking when he was passing out broken pieces of his plant to people in the office. He'd randomly come over to check on the plant and well, we ended up talking more and getting to know each other better. To be honest, I was a little intimidated by him at first. But after a while, I started noticing little things that him that were very sweet. I'd also catch him looking over randomly, even during meetings when other people were in his office.

      In November, I gathered the nerves to ask him out on a date. He said he was flattered but it was probably a bad idea since we worked right across the hall from each other. I figured that's what his answer would be since he seemed VERY PROFESSIONAL, but I had to try. So I tried to leave it at that and got really busy with deadlines at work and school. In January, when we got back after break, he started acting a little differently. I'd be busy in my office and he would come in every morning and say hi before he went into his own office. He started initiating conversations all the time. He'd notice random things and make comments. One of my coworkers and I somehow end up matching very often. One day he actually noted the color of my earrings. We were joking about him joining the accessories club one day and I mentioned that he should get a pink shirt like the one his manager was wearing. Interestingly, he didn't know what the color of his manager's shirt was, but he knew the color of my earrings. He definitely flirts a lot more now. He's constantly pulling my leg. He'll tell me little details about what he's doing over the weekend or his plans for the evening, even without me asking. He SEEMS like he wants to say something, but he's not. I'm not sure if he's changing his mind or just enjoying flirting. But his strictly business attitude has dissipated a lot since last year. I really like this guy, but I can't just hang here with his flirting and not. I'm just digging a deeper hole for myself. What do you think would really help him decide if he wants to take the chance and actually go out on a date or just stop playing games?

      Okay, so this dude, Josh, i dunno if he likes me or not.

      My reasons to think he DOES:

      •He jokes alot around me

      •When he does, he looks at me like OuO

      •I see him looking at me

      •He used to compliment me a lot

      •I get the feeling that he does and I am REALLY intuitive

      •He acts like a girl (even more so around me)

      My reasons to think NOT:

      •I tend to be skeptical (I also tend to be an idiot)

      •He doesn't do HALF the stuff here online. Except for teasing me.

      EVEN WORSE- I dunno if I like him or not.

      I am ashamed that I am so desperate that I turned to the Internets for help...

      I know you probably don't have a lot of time to, but if someone sees this, PLEEAAAASE RESPOND(:

      I'm a junior in highschool and i've never had a boyfriend or very many guy friends but recently i've had a crush on this one guy. I've known him since fifth grade but didn't really like him until now. The thing is, i think i missed my chance because I think he had a crush on me in 8th grade. He somehow got my number and would text me randomly and try to sit next to me in class. I didn't understand that he liked me (at least I think he liked me) so i kind of blew him off. but i didn't mean to! I really like him now and want to at least be his friend but i don't know how he feels and i don't know what to do.

I woke up the next day and I was in pain. My friends told me that it was like a sex party cause all the girls lost their virginity there. Yesterday the guy who I had sex with kissed me in the hallway and I don't even know his name! He says that he can't wait till next weeks party and that I am the best he's ever had. I'm really scared that he just is using me for sex and he has great lust for me. He still shows all the signs. I'll find out his name tomorrow. I think he's a senior! creeeeeeepy :0

      So there is this guy who I'm really attracted to and his family are friends with my family. I am Chaldean (Arabic)so his mom asked for my hand in marriage for him, she asked him and he said yes. He had a graduation gathering and he was supposed to talk to me that day, but he didn't I figured out that he was shy especially in front of his family and my family because everyone knew. The thing is before that, every time I saw him he would look at me, but we never talked. Then, it turns out that he has a girlfriend and that's what stopped his mom from talking about the subject till this day. I saw him yesterday at a wedding and he was looking at me as usual, I did too and he saw me, we were sitting across from each other, we just couldn't stop looking at each other. Towards the end of the party we sorta started playing the jealous game, who would make the other one jealous more? It was fun and I enjoyed making him jealous, I started dancing and flirting with other guys and it worked :) He was dancing right behind me, he kept bumping into me to grab my attention, he even sometimes turned around dancing facing my back I felt like I was dancing with him :D I even flirted with his cousin in front of him, he stood there eavesdropping on our conversation, he was pretending he was texting. Sorry I talked a lot hehe but this is just driving me crazy, I don't know him but from what I heard about him from other people made me want to get to know him more, I don't know if he is attracted to me or not. All of his family like me and I am bestfriends with his cousins. As I mentioned, he has a girlfriend but what happened yesterday at the wedding was not normal, especially the jealousy thing. HELP I need some opinions :( I can't stop thinking about him. I think the next time I'm seeing him is at New Years, there is a party and most likely we will be sitting on the same table. I can't make the first move I'm EXTREMELY shy.

      Hey. I'm a freshman and he's a sophomore. We don't go to the same school, but we go to the same church. When we go on retreats and just plain things at church he follows me around and puts his arm around me. He doesn't do this to other girls. He sat next to me on the coach bus a few days ago on the way to and from camp tejas. He just randomly lays on my lap and starts like hold on to me. He compliments me everyday we see each other and I always catch him staring at me during church choir and cause he's a bass and I'm an alto he thinks those two mix perfectly. He also tells me random things like he knows my birthday and my favorite color and tells me that he hasn't had a gf for over two years. Does he like me more than a friend?

      I had a really close friend who I knew was into me and he said it out loud several times. But after a fight, we had a falling out. Now after a long time he messaged me to ask how I was. and a couple of days later, he roams around school (mostly around the places I hang out)and his friends keep looking at me and they all keep laughing. Does that mean he likes me? It looks as if he is making fun of me with his friends. I do like him though and would seriously like to know for sure what on earth is he all about?

In fact, before I found out he liked me, I was pretty positive that I didn't like him in a romantic way at all :s In fact, I was quite interested in his best friend (who I was also quite sure liked me) But now hes convinced me to go out with him, so now everythings weird with everyone :< I feel like no matter what I do, someones gonna get hurt. :( *Sigh* I miss when I was 10 k's heavier and didn't have this kind of attention...

Then he started dating this girl and wouldnt talk to any other girls. Then they broke up and he hangs out with the other girls and stuff now but just kinda glances over at me. I'm WAY too shy to try to talk to him first, but i messaged him on facebook asking if he wanted to go with me and my bff and her bf trick or treating (yes i still do that even though im 15) and he has been on a lot but hasn't replied back. My friend says that I need to stop liking him and just move on, and I tried but I fall for him all over again when I see him. I really need help! Please help me understand what's going on! DX

Then, my friend told me over a text that he has a crush on me. He gave me his number, happens to sit next to me when we don't get assigned seats in class, my friends are also his friends, and he touches me sometimes (poke, tap, mess up my hair, grab my face, shake my shoulders). The thing is that my friend is notorious for lying a LOT. Is he just being friendly, or did my friend make this whole thing up?

      hi! Well my friend told me once that this guy likes me.. And my friend was his closest guy friend, who he tells everything. I was in the same class as him last year and well I didn't notice anything peculiar, my teacher just said it's a sign or something because he always bullied me. And now I've been joking around and saying I hate him because it's just what we do, and his smile would droop and stuff, and he would always jokingly say how I'm nothing without him (like if im not his friend) but he would hang out with another girl who's in my class, and he would talk to her right in front of my locker, I don't even get it omg

      And theres this OTHER guy, who is in my cooking class and we would always fight ugh so annoyed LOL. But then I find that true when he would find excused to touch me, because he would "accidentally" brush against me to get something or just bump me because I'm in the way, and he would touch my hand and take a long time to get it off of something I'm mixing. And from my side vision hes always looking at me, I'm not sure if he DOES like me or not..

But he stares at me, and defends me, and we talk about random crap, and i just recently got his phone number, so we text alot. he has never told me about his ex. but i saw it all over his facebook. so i don't know what to think.

      Hi im worried he thinks I like him more than a friend. I sit by him every school day on the bus cause he asked me to. Today I tried to be sweet-because I heard he got in a fight with a boy I asked out but he said no about me - by messing up his hair and he said no one else has EVER done that to his hair as I left the bus. I don't want him to think I like him more than a friend. Im pretty shore he likes me because everyone tells me he likes me. Today I did not get to sit by him and he looked back to see if I raised my hand like I always do. Than he told me to sneak up and sit by him and I keep looking at him to see if he was looking at ne and he was but he quickly looked away.

      There is this guy at work I like and not sure if he likes me too. He does many things that makes me feel like he might but at the same time makes me wonder if he is just friendly and a gentleman. So here is the story, he was hired maybe 3 or 4 months ago, not sure on the time since he has had to travel and be out of the office. Anyway we were never introduced and all of the sudden he just started saying Good Morning everytime he walked by my cubicle, which is on one of the ways to get to the cafeteria. So when I first notice him, was just Good Morning, then Hi, he could say hi as many times he walked by the cubicle. So when he came back from one of the trips I saw him at the elevator, he was getting out and i was getting in, so he waited out holding the door until I got in and said Hi. Later that day I met him at the store outside the office but in the same complex and he aproached and kissed me to say hi. The next day he was talking and walking by with two other ladies but he stopped to ask me how i was and then kept walking. We have stare at eachother for a while, he looks at me and opens his eyes a bit and raises his eyebrows or smiles, so I smile back. If I'm not looking and he walks by my cubicle he hits it gently so I look at him and then says hi. One day he was on the way in the hall and I was going to pass him from behind but he moved back and then stopped me and kissed me to say hi. So basically if I meet him face to face, he gives me a kiss, if not just says hi and how I am. The other thing he does is rub my back or my arm when he kisses me. Also he might see me several times a day and say hi and at the end of the day if i meet him face to face then he will kiss me and say hi as if it was the first time i saw him that day. If Im from far and he sees me then he waves. He has also given me his hand on top of my cubicle or put it as if I do a hi 5 lol. He holds the door for me and one day he managed to hold it for me even as he was holding two cups of coffee. He says Hi to many people too but the difference is we were never introduced and he might put his hand on the people they say hi to but not rub them. Also to me he isnt shy, but I am extremely shy, so asking him out is not a possibility for me. I know he isnt married but no idea if he has a gf. So what should I do?
