How to Know If Someone Likes You

It is usually 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 indirect cues can help. Body language often says just as much, if not more, than our verbal expressions, and a better understanding of body language can help you figure out what people think of you. The following tips may help you figure out whether or not someone likes you.

Many of the actions listed in this article are gender-neutral, but some of them would definitely seem strange if they came from a woman. Women tend to have unique ways of signaling their romantic or sexual interest to others, and these signals can differ from the cues men usually provide.

Remember, even if someone is interested in you, that doesn't mean they are ready to get into a relationship with you. 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, you can encourage similar actions with a compliment. Communication is the key to developing and maintaining relationships, and most people have their own communication style.

Keep in mind that in addition to nonverbal expressions of romantic interest, many people have a love language that is unique to their circumstances. A love language is the way that people like to express and receive affection and love. Learning about your own style can help you better express your needs and attract a partner.

Signs a Guy Has Noticed You

A guy who likes you will be very aware of your presence, and you may notice him noticing you. He will typically glance in your direction, smile at you, and try not to stare. He may also laugh at your jokes, pay close attention to what you say, and consciously or unconsciously mimic your movements.

1. He Mirrors Your Movements

One of the key things to look for is synchronicity. It is a major plus when the two of you are amused by or interested in the same things. When you drink from a glass, he will drink from his own. 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 you both have the same posture, then these are all good signs that he's noticing things about you.

2. He Smiles When He Looks at You

Of course men can smile and act friendly in general, but if he has an extra grin for you that he doesn't display to other people, he's probably attracted to you.

3. You Catch Him Staring at You

This is a pretty obvious sign that a guy is interested. Once I decided to run outside in the rain with one of my friends because I was feeling overwhelmed at a party. This was a totally insane thing to do, and as I was passing a window, I definitely saw a pair of eyes fascinated by my spur of the moment workout.

4. He Observes Your Reactions

If he looks to you to see if you caught something strange in a group setting, or if he studies your response to things, then he wants to be on the same wavelength as you. Whether or not he believes in ESP, he'll want to be on the same page as you.

5. He Raises His Eyebrows

He will not do this dramatically, but he'll raise his brows just enough to acknowledge that he's noticed you and will want to interact more.

6. He Says Your Name Frequently

Saying your name often (even when he doesn't have to) is an indication that he wants you to be present. Whether it's in a conversation or when he's out and about, saying your name reminds him of you and serves as an obvious indication that he's thinking of you.

Signs That He's Trying to Get 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 if he's interested is to judge his physical proximity to you. 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

If he shows up in places where you typically hangout, he's either actively trying to spend time with you or he's trying to get more familiar with places that you like. This behavior shows that he wants to be close to you and that he's paid attention to the places he's seen you frequenting. He may want to run into you, or he may want to understand why certain places are so special to you.

2. He Stands Near You Whenever He Can

If a guy is interested in you he's going to stand close to you. Close proximity will enable you two to talk to each other and share an experience more closely.

3. He Actively Prevents Other Guys From Connecting With You

He'll find ways to make his interest in you known to potential competitors. He may also try to deter other guys so your attention will solely be on him.

4. He Uses His Feet to Communicate With You

If he's tapping his toes along to music he may really enjoy a particular song or he may be trying to blow off some extra energy to calm himself. This is an indication that he's a bit excited. If his feet point toward you that's another indication of his interest. His body will be positioned towards the thing or person that he wants. If his feet and body are pointed away all the time, he may not be interested.

5. He'll Try to Impress You

He may act as if he's especially together to try to impress you. He may subtly talk about his accomplishments or skills to earn your admiration. He may also talk about places he's traveled and things he's tried in order to pique your interest.

6. He Offers His Jacket When it's Cold

He'll want to come off as a gentleman when he's around you. This means that he'll open doors, guide you as you're walking, and offer his coat to you if you're cold. I suggest keeping the jacket and giving it back a few days later so you will have a good reason to initiate an interaction with him.

7. He Scoots Closer to You

When seated he may give you less space than usual if he's sitting next to you. He may also lean into you when you're talking. This way he can hear you better and be closer to you. He may try to make himself seem cute to you. Sometimes guys know that they are intimidating, so if they try to make themselves look cute, then they're trying to be more accessible to you.

Touch

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

1. He Looks for Excuses to Hold Your Hand

Whether he offers you a palm reading, help getting off a ladder, or high fives, if he's trying to touch your hands in some way it is because he wants to hold your hand.

2. He Looks for Opportunities to Touch You in Non-Creepy Ways

He will want to break the physical barrier between you, and get you familiar with his touching habits. Keep in mind that he will observe your body language and verbal cues to determine whether or not you're comfortable with being touched. He will want to be proactive about forming a connection, but he'll also want to come across as a gentleman. He may squeeze your shoulder during an emotional moment, or guide you through a crowd by the small of your back. If he hugs you from behind, this is unusual, but it probably means he's super excited to see you, and that he can't even wait for you to turn to look at his face. If he gives you bear hugs, picks you up, kisses your hand, kisses your forehead, dances with you or next to you, or if he wraps his arm around yours while walking then he definitely likes you.

3. He Randomly Plays With or Touches Your Hair

Men like hair a lot more than you think, and it is a huge sign of affection if a man playfully or gently caresses your hair. The longer his hands stay on your head, the more likely it is that he has a thing for you.

4. He Lays His Head on Your Shoulder

He obviously feels comfortable enough with you if he's resting his head on your shoulder. If he lays his head in your lap, that means that he feels very comfortable and safe with you.

5. He Hugs You Often

If he can't stop hugging you for every small deed, then he really wants to be close to you.

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. If he engages in any of the following actions he may like you.

1. He Adjusts His Crotch Area

This should be easy to understand and interpret.

2. He Fidgets

If he can't keep himself still, he's probably really excited and nervous about spending time with you.

3. He Grooms His Hair When Around You

Any kind of knee-jerk reaction to groom shows that a person wants to look their best, whether for vanity or because you are in the room. This is ultimately a sign that he wants to look good in front of you.

Open and 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 Give Him a Surge of Confidence

If a guy likes you, he will probably be on cloud nine whenever you're nearby. If the two of you have good chemistry and are obviously attracted to one another then he may carry himself with more confidence when you're together. He'll stand up straight and walk with long, confident strides. He may also puff out his chest or playfully show off to catch your attention. Confidence is an attractive quality and he'll want to demonstrate that he possesses a healthy level of self-esteem around the person he likes.

2. He Stretches Out His Legs and Body

If he can make himself more prominent in a space, then you're more likely to gander at him. Essentially, the more open his body language, the better. Not only does his openness suggest that he's making himself accessible, it also suggests that he's comfortable with himself and his environment.

Signs He Doesn't Like You

Sometimes a guy may not give clear signals about how he feels. Is he interested in you, but shy? Does he dislike you? Does he even know you exist? If you're not sure how he feels, but too afraid to ask, look for these signs.

1. He Won't Spend Time With You

A guy won't waste time or energy connecting with someone he's not interested in. His energy will be directed towards things and people that matter to him.

2. He'll Focus on Other People

If he's not interested in you then he will most likely spend his time with friends or other romantic prospects.

3. He Will Be (Emotionally and Physically) Distant

If someone likes you or is interested in you they will be physically close to you, and they will try to establish an emotional connection with you. If he's nowhere to be seen and you have no idea what's going on with him then it is safe to assume he doesn't like you.

These signs are not the only indications of disinterest. This article lists lots of signs that show whether or not a guy dislikes you.

Don't Just Read the Signs!

While signs can help you determine whether or not someone is interested in you, the best way to know how someone feels about you is to ask them directly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does It Mean When a Guy Hugs You First?

A hug is a physical expression of affection. A person will hug someone because they want to physically express their affection and familiarity with someone, or because they want to comfort and reassure someone. If a guy hugs you and you're unsure of what he's trying to convey with his actions, ask him why he hugged you.

What Does It Mean When a Guy Touches You a Lot?

Some people touch others to demonstrate familiarity or control. Others use touch to show affection and to bond. Consider why a person is touching you and whether or not you like being touched. Don't be afraid to set boundaries and let people know whether or not it's okay for them to touch you. If you are okay with being touched, but you don't know why someone is touching you, you should ask them why they are behaving that way.

How Can You Know Whether or Not Someone Dislikes You?

A person who dislikes you or is not interested in you will not spend time with you, talk to you, or pay attention to you. If you're unsure about someone's feelings, just ask!

Are Guys Mean to People They Like?

No. When you like someone you should never express your feelings by being mean. Meanness is hurtful and it is unhealthy to express love in ways that harm someone. Being mean only pushes people away. If a person truly likes you and wants to connect with you then they won't jeopardize the chance to bond with you by being mean. Don't confuse abusive behavior with love.

Why Is He Playing With My Hair?

Maybe he wants to build a nest and live there? All Jokes aside, he might like you or he might just like your hair.

Will a Guy Avoid Me If He Likes Me?

People don't usually avoid someone they like, but it still happens. Sometimes a person may have strong, positive feelings of attraction and affection for someone else, but they may be uncomfortable with liking someone. It can be overwhelming to like a person. Everybody will express their feelings in their own way and some people respond to attraction by withdrawing. Give people their space and understand that they will experience and express their emotions in ways that are unique. Remember, liking someone doesn't mean that a person wants to start dating or get into a relationship.

Questions & Answers

  • There's this guy I see all the time because of Church events, and he is shorter than me, but I'm still completely into him. He's always trying to make me laugh, squeezes my shoulder when he sees me and asks how I'm doing, and tries to see my preferences in guys. I thought he wouldn't like me because I'm taller, but I have no clue?

    He likes you. Height doesn't matter. Sometimes shorter is better anyway.

  • I was talking to a guy I like, gazed into his eyes, and his pupils dilated. But he has his arm crossed? Why?

    He is probably not thinking about what he is doing with his eyes or his arm. Stop worrying about why his arm might be crossed. Think more about how you can engage his mind, keep the conversation flowing, and keeping things interesting.

  • I have a guy in my class who always sits close to me. He looks into my eyes when we talk, and he puts his foot on top of mine. Does he like me?

    Possibly. He could be just flirting.

  • So there is a guy in my class who sits right next to me every day. He calls me by my last name ( as a joke ) all the time and is constantly teasing me about being a vegan and being a hardworking student. Almost every day he either grabs my phone to play a song he likes, or grabs my pencil, or asks me a random question. And he is always paying attention to my phone. Is he doing this because he likes me or because he's just being friendly?

    He is flirting with you and having fun. But I don't think you should take it too seriously.

  • I have a guy in school who is a grade older than me. He usually bumps shoulders with me for no reason. What does that mean?

    High school boys, middle school boys, and elementary school boys are all really just boys. They like to flirt, and sometimes they do things without thinking. But they don't usually think that far out. Is he doing sweet things to you besides this? You may have more of a case that he is interested.

      There's this guy at my workplace. We've known each other for 3 weeks. He always sits close to me with our knees touching. He's given me rides home. He always gives me some of his food. He rests his head on my shoulder. We make eye contact when we talk and laugh. It was raining and we held my umbrella together and he held the umbrella by clasping his hand over mine. He only does these things with me. Is he just a friend or is it more? He doesn't have my number yet but we've only known each other for 3 weeks but are comfortable with each other.

      So this guy I like we are close friend through my cousin and we always hang out the three of us and I’ve literally always liked him just kind breezed it off. Ya know? And now 4 years later I like him. A lot. But, yes but. He has a girlfriend. We have hung out a lot lately and he’s been asking me favors that are a 1 person job like “can you help me make my noodle soup” and this one time we had a sleepover with my cousin and he was really touchy like he would help me get down the back of the truck and he would touch my hair and that one night he also opened his arms and asked for a hug and I was like “okay” so I gave him one and he hugged me with two arms so I did the same and he’s also taller than me if that’s important.

But whenever I would leave he would keep asking my friend about me and then my friend and I were sitting down and i glanced over and he was staring at me. I see him around all the time and were friends so he always gives me a hug. What does all this mean?

      I'm 20 years and I've never ever been in a relationship. I believe relationships are sacred and I shouldn't get into one cause everyone else is in it.

      I met a guy a few months ago (I'm an intern,he is working) and I've noticed some of these signs. He is really cute,like 100% cute. So There was a day I saw him hugging some girl ( a pretty one by the the way) and he also saw me. Few minutes later he enters into the room I was in and only greeted me by touching my arm but we were like 4 people in the room.

      Another day, I walk into the room and walk out without greeting him. He follows me into the room I'm in and stands like an arm length from me. He gets out his phones and starts using it,I don't even see him try to move from where he is at.

      Another day,we are standing pretty close to each other and I hear him ask if I want to use his headphones. I ask,pardon, and he tells me to place them at a table next to me. I have never been sure if I heard him right.

      Another day,he hears some guy talking to me and he starts staring at me and licking his lips. Because he leaves the room before me, I hear him mimicking something I told the guy who was questioning me.

      Another day,we sitting close to each other and I greet him. He starts singing that the room is suddenly hot and he leans close to me,like really close.

      The day after he heard me talking to another guy,he ignored me when he say me and acted as if I was not in the room.

      I thinking I'm reading to much into this, maybe I'm desperate for affection. And also there is no way he would date me,I'm not like so pretty and the way he is cute I'm sure there are many girls chasing him.

      I also heard some guys telling him that he has a lot of girls DMing him but he did not answer them.

      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.

      Not sure 

      6 months 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 

      7 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.

      Theres this boy who used to be my friend but he randomly ended our friendship. Now I have a class with him and when he sees me or is near he stares, but looks away when I catch him, messes with his hair, moves his feet in an impatient manner like he wants to walk away/paces. He also acts differently around me. But I don’t know if he likes me or not. What do you think?

      I have a crush on this guy at school. I met him at a book club and we have a lot of meetings. 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.

      This guy in my class is generally very quiet and talks only to his friends. Idk if we are friends but anyway I catch him staring and smiling at me in class. 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?

      Thanks

She says that hê likes me but he is sometimes shy. The guy and me talk about a school dance and he seemd intrested. At the school dance I was dancing with a boy and then when he came there he came to me while I was slow dancing and he came just there about to say something I stopt and look at him for a while and then he just walk away. When im upset he is always there for me and he will Try every thing to make me smile. He'll stick his tongue out in a funny whay and one time he made a soud (ggggggiiiiirrrr) from my neck to ear. I also catch him looking at me while im not looking at him soemtimes he stares at me while walking and he'll bump into something or someone. He also clench his fist when he hears i talk about a other guy. When he sees me with a guy his smile turns down. But he does not chat with me on whatsapp Why . Does this mean he likes me?

      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?

      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.

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.

      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! :'(

I have this feeling he likes me but idk bc he always talks to this other girl, but he likes to walk with me in class bc its gym and he will grab my hand and hold it. Then today he comes over to me and starts to spin my around. After he walked away with his friend i felt really funny almost embarrassed, then he randomly hugs me and i will hug him back and yeah, but he is really cute. ANY ONE HAVE ANY ADVICE

      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.

      I'm a senior in high school but my crush is just a little shorter than me and 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.

      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.

      So, I'm a freshmen in highschool and i really really like this guy. The thing is he's super friendly, so sometimes, I don't know if he's doing things because he's super nice or because he likes me. We are pretty close. We meet every day after advisory and we walk to class together. He always looks me in the eye and he laughs at my jokes even if they aren't funny. He is constantly trying to find out more about me and texts me with red hearts and stuff. He is always there to help me. The thing is, yesterday, I asked him the homework before leaving and he leaned on my locker and started talking to me, kinda like he was flirting. I was shook. He never does that. I really like him, more than I have ever liked anyone, thoughts???? PLS help

      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.

      There is this guy in my class who everyone has been saying he likes me. In one class I have with him I sit in front of him and he almost always touches my hair when I have it down. One day he randomly hugged me because I was since I was helping him with his homework. My friends think that he likes me, but he says that he likes another girl who we have no classes with. I'm still not sure whether he likes me or not, especially since he said she likes someone else. Even though the signs have been pretty obvious. Thoughts?

      So I’m just in middle school 8 grade year and I found out that my crush likes me and we talk about it. And when our class was over my bff was walking up and he gave his hoodie to her and she said “I don’t want it”. And he said “no give it to her” and then my BFF gave it to me and then he told me I can have it for the weekend. What does that mean? Are we a“thing” are we “something”?

      There's this boy in my scout group, occasionally he would make fun of me like i can't do a certain craft, that i am bad at bowling and i have a ridiculous nickname. Other times i see him looking but i am not sure if he's looking at me or something else. But once i told him about a jerk and he went up to him for me. i can't tell if he likes me or he's just being nice?

      You should talk to him. This doesn't sound like enough information to tell if there is a connection here or not. Keep the connection positive... and talk.

      Just keeping talking to him. Try being friendly and flirty. Ask him things you would like to know. How long have you known this person?

      He works at a theater and I have a crush on him. He is always fixing his hair. He also pinched my shoulder hard, hugged me, stares at me frequently, told me he was single, and has started wearing cologne. I think he likes me but I don't know what to do or say? Help?

      Sorry, I do not do Facebook with these messages.

      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.
