How to Know if Someone Likes You

It is often difficult to tell if someone likes you. Most people aren’t direct enough to come right out and say what they mean, so looking for other, less direct, cues can help. Body language often says just as much, if not more, than our verbal interactions, and a better understanding of body language can help you figure out what people think of you. The following article may help you
tell if someone likes you before you’re in a relationship.

Many of these actions are gender neutral, but some would definitely be strange coming from a woman. Women tend to have other cues of signaling interest, in some ways more complicated and discrete than men, whether they realize this or not.

Remember, even if someone is interested in you, that doesn't mean they are ready to move forward. If you like somebody, try encouraging their interactions and responding in kind. If you react in a neutral or indifferent way, your prospect is likely to think that you aren't interested. If you like something someone does, remember you can reinforce it with a compliment. Communication is key to relationships, along with being honest and vulnerable.

What clues in body language usually let you know someone likes you?

Noticing You

A guy who likes you will be very aware of your presence, and you may notice him noticing you: glancing, smiling, trying not to stare. He may laugh at your jokes, pay close attention to what you say, and consciously or unconsciously mimic your movements.

  1. He laughs when you laugh. One of the key things to look for is synchronicity. When two of you are amused at the same things, this is a major plus. Try not to force this, but laugh naturally. If he laughs at your jokes, that's extra points.
  2. He mirrors your movements. When you drink from a glass, he does also. If you cross your leg, he'll have his leg crossed. If you both have your legs stretched out, you're both wearing similar clothes, similar colors, or have the same posture -- these are all good signs.
  3. He smiles often when looking directly at you. Of course men smile, and they can be friendly. But if he has a certain extra smirk for you that he doesn't for the rest of people, or if he particularly is giving you extra attention -- then there's something that's positive happening.
  4. You catch him with a "deer in the headlights" look at you. Once I decided to run outside with one of my friends in the rain because I was overwhelmed by a party. This was a totally insane feminine thing to do, but when crossing one of the windows I definitely saw a pair of eyes fascinated by this splurge of a moment, not to mention being covered in rain and stuck in your clothes doesn't hurt.
  5. Looks to you to see if you caught something strange in a group setting to see if you'll laugh too. He wants to be on the same wavelength. Men desperately want to believe in ESP.
  6. His eyebrows raise. Not dramatically, but enough to acknowledge that you are a special, keen woman.
  7. He uses your name frequently because he likes it.
  8. He may awkwardly compare you to women in his life whom he admires -- like his mom.

Proximity: Getting Close to You

A guy who really likes you will want to spend time with you and be as close to you as he can without being too obvious about it. The easiest way to tell this is his physical proximity. Does he try to get a seat next to you at group hangouts? Does he constantly appear in places you frequent? These are all signs that he likes you.

  1. He appears in places you frequent randomly, whether on purpose or not.
  2. He stands near you in social scenes.
  3. He actively prevents other guys from connecting with you. He'll find ways to block them, so that he has your attention instead.
  4. He uses his feet to communicate with you. He taps to music, he points to you, he touches you with his feet
  5. If he is driving you in a car by himself, he'll act particularly altogether to try to impress you. He may give off clues that he likes you considering (1) part of his brain is needed to concentrate on the road (2) the setting is more private and intimate. Consider if he is trying to be personal while he drives, or if you are but a shadow in the car that he never knew was even there.
  6. He offers his jacket when it's cold. Again, he wants to come off as a gentleman. I suggest keeping the jacket and giving it back another day so that you have some kind of form of connection with him for a later day.
  7. He scoots closer to you.
  8. When seated he gives you less space than usual if by you.
  9. He leans into you when talking. This way he can hear you better and be closer to you.
  10. He crouches inward to be cuter to you. Sometimes guys know that they are intimidating, so if they try to make themselves cute, than they're trying to be more accessible to you.

Touch

Touch is a huge indicator of desire, and a guy who likes you will want to be in physical contact as much as he can. Here are a few big signs related to physical contact and touch.

  1. He looks for excuses to hold your hand, whether palm reading, helping you off a ladder, being scared, high fives, handing you an object, etc.
  2. He looks for ways to touch you in non-creepy ways, such as your shoulders and arms. He wants to break the physical barrier between you, and get you used to his sense of touch. He also wants to come off as gentlemanly. He may squeeze your shoulder during an emotional moment, or he may touch you when someone else is around who is flirting with you... because he wants you to remember him, not some other guy.
  3. He really likes you if he randomly plays or touches your hair. Men like hair a lot more than you think, and it is a huge sign of affection if he goes for the fro. The longer his hands stay on your head caressing hair, more likely he has a thing for you.
  4. He lays his head on your shoulder. He obviously feels comfortable enough with you.
  5. If he lays his head in your lap, he feels even more comfortable with you.
  6. He hugs you on sight.
  7. He hugs you several times in a single day. If he can't stop hugging you for every small deed, then he really wants to be close to you.
  8. He guides you through a crowd by the small of your back.
  9. Random high fives. He gives you lots and lots and lots of high fives... for everything.
  10. He hugs you from behind. This is unusual, but probably means they are super excited to see you and can't even wait for you to turn to look them in the face.
  11. He gives you big bear hugs.
  12. He picks you up and spins you.
  13. He kisses your hand.
  14. He kisses your forehead.
  15. He grabs at your elbow.
  16. He dances with you or next to you.
  17. He wraps his arm around yours while walking.

He looks for excuses to playfully touch you or hold your hand.

Nervous Behavior

We’re all familiar with the anxious, overwhelming feelings that can arise from having a crush on someone. If a guy is kind of flustered and odd around you, it may be because he likes you and doesn't know how to deal with it.

  1. He crashes into objects in the area out of nervousness.
  2. He forgets where he is going out of nervousness. He may forget incredibly basic information about you too, because he is nervous.
  3. He has a sudden amount of energy and wanders everywhere like a kid on sugar.
  4. He adjusts his crotch area. This should be understood.
  5. He plays with any rings on his fingers out of nervousness.
  6. He plays with objects on the table out of nervousness. He needs to do something with himself because he is brooding with emotion.
  7. He suddenly has the need to adjust one of his socks and pull it up. This is an old trick, but for whatever reason if you do something entirely endearing, this is a knee-jerk reaction by men that is telling of only one thing: I like her.
  8. He grooms his hair when around you. Any kind of knee-jerk reaction to groom shows they want to look their best, whether for vanity or because you are in the room.
  9. He stares at you for too long.
  10. He smells of cologne.

He fiddles with things out of nervousness.

Open, Confident Body Language

If a guy really likes you, instead of acting nervous he may actually act extra confident and happy around you because you simply make him feel good. If he's using lots of open body language, and it seems as though he can really relax in your presence, this is a sign that he feels comfortable and free when you're around.

  1. He has better posture because you gave him a surge of confidence.
  2. His body language allows him to show his wrists meaning he is comfortable around you since this is a vulnerable place on humans.
  3. He licks his lips, generally subconsciously.
  4. His nostrils open. Essentially, the more open the body language, the better. This can manifest in the strangest of ways, such as the nostrils.
  5. He stretches out his legs and body. If he can make more of himself prominent in a room, then you're more likely to gander at him.
  6. He stands taller. You make him feel confident, and women dig tall guys over just about anything else.
  7. Puffs out chest. He is feeling confident, and he wants you to see him as a protector.
  8. Has more open body language rather than crossing arms, legs, keeping his palms toward himself.
  9. He sings random songs around you or whistles. He is happy and free.

Does he like me?

      If he has a girlfriend who is your friend -- count your losses and move on. Try interacting more with other boys and developing something with them. You'll only invite chaos if you date someone your friend did.

      So this guy is in my class and once i enter the classroom, he starts acting differently. He starts to make jokes, be funny, talk about sports, and other things. He also stares at me. Once he started to do curl-ups in front of me. It was so weird. Also when we are probably 50 ft away, I just look around and see his face staring at me. Does he like me???

      Not sure 8 weeks ago

      My best friend and I have known each other for a year now. In the first 3 months I didn't notice him very much. Until, we started talking to each other. Then at the 7th month, he started complemting like crazy. And a few days later I went to use the washroom and I ran into him at his locker near mine. He playfully did the dodging game (when a guy blocks you from getting to your locker). And then called me his queen. At recess he startled me by grabbing my waist and saying "boo". And then started calling me his "little pet" while patting my head constantly. And keeps playing with my hood. Is he being playful or flirty?

      Very unsure 2 months ago

      I was sitting next to two guys talking with them about many things. One of them I like very much and he’s a very nice guy. When we talk, we smile to each other and we have many attitudes in common. But sometimes his acts confuse me a lot. Sometimes he does many things to try to catch my attention to make me look at him and once I look at him, he smiles or asks something. In the conversation I mentioned at the beginning, everything was going fine but suddenly he began giving himself a few kisses on his arms while looking at me and did not hide himself while doing it. Is he trying to show something to me?

      This isn't enough information either way to really decide. If you have other examples, consider those carefully yourself. Keep a positive connection with them, because they do sound like a nice person to have in your life. Maybe try doing something to catch his attention, get him a small gift, write a friendly letter.

      My Best friend and I have known each other for 5 years. We do track and field together and it's the only way i see him. He is a grade older and I think has a crush on me. Last year, when we were sitting side by side (as we always do) and he poked my thigh, I just gave he deer eyes and I froze. He apologized and didn't do it again. This last track practice it was raining and the bleachers were soaking wet. I decided just to stand and he wouldn't stop looking at me. Then he took off his jacket and made me sit on it. He happily sat in a puddle and after that we just smiled at each other and all he said was "See you later" and I kept saying "Have fun in Hawaii!" (Since he is going there for a vacation in a few days). Anyway, whats going on? Is he trying to make a move on? Or is he just being nice?

      I don't give dating advice for those still partaking in recess.

      Go be a kid. Work on yourself. You have plenty of time to fall in love later. It's silly to get involved in this too young -- when you can instead develop your talents. Stay out of the crushes and dating for as long as you can. You're not going to be able to sustain this at your age. Enjoy being a kid, because you can't become a kid again.

      I like I guy at my school named Lucas in class I always catch him staring and smiling at me when that happens he just turns around. In class , I always hear him saying my name. In today's class he had said my name again walking in to our class, I looked to see if he was talking to anyone until he looked at me and smiled. I told my friend about this and my friend walked up to him and said ''Hi''. Of course I was embarrassed . When he turned around he said hi back but didn't look at my friend he looked at me. And I've noticed that everyday at recess he always hangs around me . Does he like me?

      He sounds slightly flirtatious, and that it isn't much heavier than that. If you like this person, try hanging out with them. See what they're like if you go to movie or go to dinner, or something more simple like coffee. Otherwise, talk and engage with him. That may help with what's happening here. Good luck!

      hai just wanted help with this issue there's this guy I've known for 2 years, but haven't spoken to him ever until this year and a little bit last year and this guy his nice and everything, but he keeps teasing me as a joke thinking his just trying to get reaction off from me cause I'm quiet shy, but his been doing it so often that I'm not so sure anymore if its a joke or does he like me and there was one time he started massaging my shoulders out the blue and I quickly pushed him away in where I turned around to see him smiling at me. Also he was saying my name to say goodbye when none of my other friends did in the room and I know I might be overacting, but I really need to know. Moreover when he teases me it sometimes ends up him shouting my name and encouraging me in front of everyone when I get called out for my birthday in college and winks at me. Please help me does he like me or just loves teasing me to get a reaction from me.

One time I walked into a room and the second I came in he shouted the nickname he made up for me and ran at me with open arms. Even tho we saw each other yesterday, he hugged me SO TIGHT I couldn't even breathe! And then he picked me up and twirled me. He also shows LOTS of the signs above. But the thing is, he's been asked multiple times while I'm around if he likes me and he says no... But my friend says when I'm not around he doesn't deny it. Today I saw him in class and we were having a conversation and then his friend interrupted and said 'its because he likes you!' and be repeated it but my crush didn't deny it! I even saw him smiling!! He has hugged me at other times and when I accidentally bump into him anywhere his whole face just lights up and his smile is so wide. He also played with my hair. A LOT. like, a whole 50 mins! Please help me translate wat all this means!!

      so one day I was over at my friends house, and my crush (who I’ve basically liked since we were kids and known for that long as well) happened to be there too. I was was sitting in an office chair behind one of my friends couches and all of the sudden he comes up and sits on the couch and puts his head on my leg (I had my legs crossed on the back of the couch). He had the whole entire thing to himself but he chose to sit RIGHT THERE. What does that mean? We’ve always been so comfortable around each other, so I thought it was just a “friendly” jesture, but he seems to now always mention my name a lot to my friends and act weirdly around me sometimes. NEED ADVICE PLEASE.

      Well. There's this guy.. We had a really intimate and loving past and we are comfortable with each other now. At a camping trip, he kept caressing my ass, arms, neck etc. Saying he wanted to bring back the past but keep it a secret. I dont know if he likes me like that or just wants to be FWBs. Because I'm certainly not a lamp with no sex appeal if he touches me intimately and makes out with me and goes out of his way to be with me even if its just to greet me. Need advice please.

We dont talk much but today he bumped onto me and smiled. Moreover when i go up to his friends he just remains quiet. Whenever i enter the class he looks at me for sometime. I am a very clumsy girl and i always keep talking and lauhing everytime but all he does is smile at me. So what conclusion should i make from all of his behaviour towards me? Does he like me or not?

      He does these things for me but I am still unsure:

      1) He told me he loved me (first) and I didnt ssay it back till i was ready.

      2) He always makes it a point to hold my hand wherever we go or touch me or show some kind of physical contact when we're out. when he go on dates at restaurants, he holds my hand at the table.

      3) He tells me I love you when we get up first thing and when we're about to fall asleep.

      4) he notices the small things I do for him and remembers the small things about me that I tell him randomly.

      5) He takes me to meet his friends

      6) he wants to meet my friends (and ive done that)

      7) he texts me throughout the day

      8) he is caring and is there for me when i need him

      HOWEVER

      1) He is very suggestive about his sexual fetishes

      2) he wants to experiment sexually

      3) he always jokes about threesomes? (but will stop if i think its too much)

      4) he finishes first most of the time but continues till I am done

      I am just really confused that he is so suggestive about stuff like handcuffs and threesomes. is this ok?

      okay so there is this guy in my art class, he is cute but he is also older than me, right now we are just friends and he knows I'm always going to be there for him if he gets sad or something, but last week he told me to stop talking to him at school so I did, the next day in class, I completely ignored him, didn't even look his direction then he texts me late at night saying "you didn't even say hi to me today" "was kinda upset" I responded three days later, my phone was off, with "I was simply following what you said" and he was like "ok, don't worry about it". He is so confusing because yes he is cute and I wouldn't mind dating him but there is this girl that likes him and whenever I say that they are dating he gets mad and insists they aren't. But then again he is older and when I first started talking to him, he wanted to be "friends with benefits", I refused and told him that I wasn't going to be that type of girl. Does he actually like me or does he just want my body? Should I wait and maybe give him a chance in the future or not?

      Someone has to initiate conversation, so give it a try. But don't overwhelm her by trying to start too many conversations.

      Four months is a long time to be hooking up. You need to discuss the relationship. Where is this going? Do you want to stay hookup buddies, be something more? Tell him how you feel. Be pragmatic and say you just want to clean the air, and you'll be cool no matter what. Let him know you may have to draw the line and stop the sex because your emotions are getting involved and it's getting to your head, so you need to make a choice.

      Or you can ask him if he wants to try dating, or taking you on a date.

      I’ve been hooking up with this guy for four months now and I’ve noticed changes. The sex is ideally more in my favor he takes more time for me than himself. If I don’t stay the night (which is also a new thing) he makes sure to walk me to the door and kiss me. When we cuddle he plays with my hair, kisses the side of my head and forehead way too often but hey I’m not complaining, and he rubs my shoulders and just caresses me and tlls me how soft my skin is. He’s also complimented me a lot lately telling me how pretty I am and how cute my ears are. Also we’re on college break and he mentioned how he’s going away for a month which I was really sad about cause I like him and hoped to spend more time with him because of the break. Well!!! He gave me one of his shirts while he was folding laundry when I was over and said “ i don’t wear this anymore really and it looks like something you’d wear” which he is either LYIN because it was in the pile of recently cleaned clothes or he washed it especially for me!!! it seems like there might be something there but when we first messaged he made it clear he only wanted to hook up so what is going on HELP!

      You need to hangout with him outside of work. Ask him to something lighthearted. Maybe a movie, coffee, something of this nature. That will help you to see things better, and keep the pressure off being at work.

      Give him a compliment. Then tell him you don't want to go overboard with hugs and high fives. Make a habit to communicate less so he doesn't get the wrong idea. Maybe even help set him up with someone else.

      Well, high schoolers sometimes are flirting just for the sake of flirting. Adults do that too. If he says "don't take me serious" he might mean that. And you might need to tell him, hey -- unless you want to be serious with me, we got to set some boundaries. Like stop touching my butt.

      I work with guy ( I know usually dating co workers go wrong) every time we work together he calls me my nick name.He puts his head on my shoulders and always grab my arm or hands to draw stupid but cute doodles. We laugh just about everything and hes always such in a good mood. He plays with my hair and touches my leg and hes always showing me new videos(stupid videos) and sometimes ill lean in and he gets so close to me but when someone walks in he retreats back. I dont know how to react most of the time. I just play it off but I dont want him to thing we're just friends I kinda want to b more.

Honestly he’s getting pretty annoying and I don’t like him, I only like him as a friend. I like someone else and I don’t know how to cope with everything that’s going on. I need some feedback.

      I have this guy that i really dont know how i feel about, i think i like him but its confusing. nonetheless everyone is convinced he is crushing on me even though i seriously doubt it. we dont really talk, unless in a group setting, but hes a nervous guy all together so its really hard to read his feelings. he laughs but only if im laughing, he finds reasons to bud into my conversations and takes interests in things i like (books, movies, etc.) and he even stares at me, but the second i look back, he looks away. i dont think he likes me because i think im reading WAY to much into his actions, and the biggest factor is we hardly ever talk! he barely knows me, how can you like someone you dont know? oh well, i give up

      I'm a senior in high school but my crush is just a little shorter than me and he's a junior. We have 2nd period together and he sits sort of across from me. Almost everyday, he looks back at me and shakes my hand(pretty much just holding it). Alot of times if he's sitting directly behind me, he'll touch my side or my shoulders. That always give me that feeling in my stomach. I feel like he likes me but at the same time, I'm not sure if I'm reading into it too much. Recently, he's been poking me on my butt and I like it. What should I do? I even asked him about why he flirts with me and he said "don't take me serious". But why would he keep doing it though??

      Small glances? You should start talking to him and see if you connect with him that way. Just looking at eye cues can only mean so much, and if it were anything it would be the very tip of the iceberg: the super early stage of falling for someone. So I would relax. If he likes you, he'll talk with you. But just start talking and see where it goes.

      A sad, sad girl who miserably needs help with life 7 months ago

      Hi. So I've liked this guy for a REALLY long time ( we're talking years here people) but I don't know if he likes me. I can't talk to him because I'm the girl you'd see sitting there doing nothing. Problem is, whenever I'm facing him and talking to my friend, I catch him looking at me a LOT and I'm obviously like " Omg did he just... Check me out or something?!" but he looks away really fast and I'm starting to question my mind and if I'm going crazy or not. When he's around me, I get really scared and I can't think straight and I start sweating, but then when he leaves, I feel like an idiot for not seizing the chance. I talk to his friends sometimes and sometimes I see him talk to one of them and then they look at me and poke him. Are there any fool-proof pointers someone could give me PLEASE? I'm almost to the point of desperation. If you can help thank you because you have saved me from the brink of insanity. If not well then I'm insane. But yes plz help...

      Hey, so I have this best friend and we are super close and we are really good friends, and so we talk about a lot of stuff, y'know, movies, boys, grades, life ,CRUSHES. So she told me her sort of crush, and so I told her mine, I'm mean so like we r bffs so we wouldn't like tell anyone that so we trusted each other. SO the guy i have a crush on, I told her about him, and she sort of knows him, but didn't really talk to him, told me that he TOTALLY likes me, that kind of lightened me up lol but I doubted it, but like a week after I told her my crush, our social studies teacher assigned us "desk partners" and I got paired up with my bff, and the desk next to us is my crush and someone else, so im next to the wall, and my bff is on the other side, which means she is sort of near my crush, and like, ever since then, my bff and my crush have been talking NON STOP in front of me, and like, I would try to engage in the conversation but all the attention would just be paired up with my crush and my bff, I know what ur thinking, like, "Oh ur crush and bff TOTALLY like each other, let them be!" but my bff said that she definitely does not like him, and I know for a fact and so does she, that he definitely does NOT like her. So we sit together in lunch, and ALL SHE EVER TALKS ABOUT IS HOW MUCH FUN HE IS AND HOW SWEET HE IS AND always talks about how fun it is to talk to him and blah blah blah, its a complicated story, but the problem is, MY JEALOUSY IS ERUPTING PEOPLE, I need her to stop rubbing in my face about how "such good friends we are" and it's so hard not to yell at her and tell her how sick I am of her and this whole thing, and I try to change the subject but that just makes me look desperate, and recently she was like: "Haha today in social studies remember how me and X(my crush) were talking the whole time, well yeah that was like really fun, u should join us!!!"(And trust me this was obviusly not just some invitation, this made me feel so pathetic and stupid and friendless and stupid and pathetic and friendless REPEAT)Me in my mind:"I DONT CARE ABOUT YOU AND THAT BOY U KNOW I HAVE A CRUSH ON AND YOU ARA OBVIOUSLY RUBBING THIS IS MY FACE B****!" and like this whole thing is giving me bad heartache because I would love to be friends with my crush and talk to him but I'm such a coward, because I mean I only talk to him sometimes in the halls or in my other classes but rarely, and if ur thinking that like "Oh u should just ditch that friend of yours!" well, I cant because she is like the only true friend I actually have and ahhh help me! :'(

      Sadly, my boss (in his mid-20s) does/has done most of these things around me. I say sadly because before a few days ago, all these signs were absolutely CUTE and endearing as he is a self-admitted shy guy.

      Then I find out & meet his GIRLFRIEND of 6 months all in one shot. Sickening? Yes. Absolutely. Now all of these behaviors make my skin crawl and my gut punched by One Punch Man.

      I don't exactly take my boss for a player but he seems to have no problem dating someone and trying to attract another who "suits" him more.

      No thanks. Don't disrespect me; don't disrespect her.

      Hi, I met a guy recently not actually the type which I will fall for but just few days after our short meet he left a mark on me. Lol. OK back to the guy, his 37 im 28 and we met at a lounge. At first I was with my friends casually drinking and having fun just to release stress and tension. The next thing I knew the guys at the next table to us were casually coming to us to chill with us. I was exhausted from standing so I sat on the floor while talking to my friend. Then suddenly a guy from the other table approaches me and offer to massage my leg and I say yes.While he was at it, he said I have a cute Feet and he smile. At that moment I was not showing interest because, damn I barely knew him and he does that? Haha the next thing I knew was my friend asking me to send him home 'the guy who massage my leg. I said ok but I need some refreshments at the coffee shop first. So he said ok. Then he follow me to my car and I drive to d coffee shop. We sat there and order some drinks and he casually touches me tease me as if I were his Girlfriend, he compliment how I look .. Its like his flirting with me and when the drinks came he paid for it. Then when we head to the car he hold my hand and act like a little kid all happy holding mummy's hand. Omg! what's that a little boy in a 37 y/old guy? Entering my car he started massage my shoulder slowly and wanting my attention while I drive. Then he hit me up saying I was his type and his showing signs as if he was comfortable with me. He talks about himself,his mom and his family and the reason he ask for a ride die to his cousin is drunk and doesn't want to head home. The next thing was he invite me in for a hot chocalate and get to know me better but I insist on going home after sending him cuz it was past 3am. I wouldn't want to wake his parent up at home. Just so you know were asians so its pretty normal for us still staying with our parents. the last thing I knew was we forget to ask for each others number and just wandering wat was his attention. Unlike all the guys I knew who were wanting to get in pants but this guys is full of mmustery.

      So I'm in high school, and there's this guy who I'm friends with but lately I've been feeling like he likes me. He has been "play fighting" with me, messing with my things when he walks by my desk in class, playing with my hair when he's behind me and I usually catch him glancing or staring at me at least 3 times a day or sometimes well just maintain eye contact for 2-3 seconds. He even tried to get my Snapchat. I feel like I'm reading too much into it but it would really help if I got someone else's opinion on it. It doesn't distract me much but I always wonder if he actually does or just being a friend.

      Okay. Stop.

      You need to focus more on school and your friendships. Dating in 7th grade is just going to distract you. There is so much life ahead, and if you have better skills, grades, and a stronger set of friends -- you will go far. 7th grade is just the beginning. But how you perform now in school and so forth, could help you start a track that later in life, much later, you'll have a really good dating pool with a guy who has a decent job, treats you right, and you won't have this kind of confusion. Take care of yourself, girl. Enjoy your crushes, but none of those boys are good enough for you right now. And you might not remember most of your friends and connections from the 7th grade when you get a little older. Don't let these crushes distract you. You have other priorities right now. Enjoy being a kid. Seriously, dating is for adults -- and it's what we do to keep ourselves entertained. Don't be like us boring adults right now.

      Ok I'm in middle school in 7 th grade and there is this boy I like but there is this thing if you draw an imaginary x on their shoulder they have to hug someone. For example if someone did it to a girl then that girl has to hug a boy same thing for the boy but the other way around. So we have the same pe class and that's it but usually when I do if to him I just wish he would hug me but then says ew it kinda walks away but not. So then I did it to him still hoping then he actually hugged me then walked away and we were walking back to our own lines so a bunch of my friends saw and it was in public. But he didn't before so why now. And if was near him and someone did it and tell me to hug him I say ew to just so he doesn't know that I like him. Also we used to date in the past but I broke up with him but I still like him and I don't know why please helppppp what does it mean also he does playfully hit me and whenever he serousisly hits me he stops hurting me for while because he didn't mean it and he's dating a girl but that girl doesn't really like me and let me get close to him that much anymore pls helpppp

      Did he tell you that he likes someone else?

      I think you should continue to have positive interactions with this person.

      But if I'm really being honest, I always think it is best at this age to be focusing more on school and building solid friendships. You'll feel better in the long run by focusing on yourself, your family, and this really special time. Relationships and dating can wait, and it is very difficult to get into a serious relationship at this point of life. Follow your interests and get good at school. The better you focus on your interests and school the better opportunities will come to you later in life -- and with that, you'll have a better dating pool for a serious relationship. Don't let this crush distract you too much.

      I think you have a youthful, positive connection here, though I'm not sure I have enough information. I don't usually see it as a good thing if a guy describes you like a family member. I'm not sure what you mean by sleeping and eating. It does sound like he is flirting with you.

We used to get drink later and specially we both used to talk about relationship and sex and stuff. One day in april he complimented and kissed me and we cuddled and made out at my place that night( we were sober) then he left.. Since then we have been talking through texts quite often and he send me text with emojis 95 per of the time. He flirts too sometimes. So next weekend i told him to have sex but he said no and it should be done in a relationship and kinda had a discussion about having it or not. It was bad next day he told me sorry and its all good and i shouldnt feel embarrased. We continued talking until now but last night we went out with our friends to celebrate my bday and he kissed me on my hand at the end of the dance in front of everyone but hardly anyone noticed . He kissed me on my hand the night we made out before leaving too. He does have a baggage since he is 39 years old. I always motivate and inspire him to like let it go and stuff .Like support him emotionally . I also told him indirectly to let go and take a step ahead face to face . He said its so hard pragster (thats what he calls me)thats all. we enjoy each other at the dance . I tried to kiss him last night but he just let me kissed him on cheeks . He is too shy and secretive person which i know. But now i just feel bad like this is going on since 2 months now . Its just so many mixed signals . I know he gets inspired and motivated whatever i tell him but i dont know it should move forward or i dont know whats going on with him? It just soo confusing...like he compliments , makes eye contact all the time,calls me by nickname and says it for fun that u love me ... lLast friday he asked what m doing over the rest of the weeknd for the first time and he never usually ask me that. I just dont know he hasnt asked me out yet??I dont know what to do ...Please help!

      There's a guy I'm crushing on but I don't know if he feels the same way about me. He is dating though. He is very friendly with everyone and acts the same with me. He acts like he has nothing for me but when we are told as a group to hold hands, he rubs it and holds it tightly and when we are told to hug he does so tightly. He touches my hair when I see him and ignore him... I'm trying to stay cool so that no one sees it even him but when I stay away and we meet and I hide and later says hello he replies in a friendly manner.. what does that mean?

      Yeah, it sounds like he likes you. Just talk to him and be honest about how you feel. That you care about him, but at this time you'd really like for him to give you a moment so you can think about things. Or keep a journal and track your thoughts for a couple of weeks or a month or two and see where that leads you.

      It sounds like you are very young and in school. He probably does like you. BUT I must encourage you to do well in school. You'll be much happier by getting good grades and finding out what are your passions and motivations first.

      My crush did a lot of these things and does messing with me count as liking me or does that just count as being a jerk.And my friends said that he likes me after he gave me a gem and later on at the end of the school day he kept asking me if I wanted another one and I said yes and he gave me another one.He also kept kicking me so I kicked him back and every time he looks at me he always smiles and every time I drop something he asks if its mine and gives it back to me and ONLY ME.Do any of these things count as liking me?

      He is amazing, he is a gentleman, i've noticed that he hug me a lot, if he sees me he covers my eyes with his hands and then he hugs me, yesterday he was sitting next to me and he rubbed my back and my shoulder, and we've been in the car alone. We're supposed to be just friends but it seems that he wants to be more than friends. The problem is sometimes he speaks about other girls, like "I think that girl is cute" -.-
