How to Tell a Guy Is Interested in You

Perhaps there's a co-worker who has caught your eye. Or a fellow student in school with you who makes you weak in the knees every time he comes near.

You are interested in him, but how do you know if they like you? It can be embarrassing for you to ask your friends about how you can tell if he's interested. If you're shy, the last thing you want is for your friends to make a fuss. Or, even worse, to approach and ask him directly.

Here's a list of the top 50 signs that a guy may be interested for you to look over and see if any seem familiar.

Top 50 Signs He Likes You

  1. He leans towards you whenever you are sitting close to one another.
  2. He rarely turns his back on you.
  3. He smiles a lot and looks at you keenly.
  4. He maintains eye contact with you.
  5. He finds an excuse to touch you whenever he has the chance.
  6. He might try to make you jealous by flirting with other girls who are just friends to him.
  7. He will often show interest in things you like or that matter to you. This is an attempt for him to be closer to you.
  8. If he looks away quickly when you notice he is watching you, then there is a high likelihood that he likes you.
  9. He will be nervous around you — this is especially true if you haven’t known one another for long.
  10. He will have a seemingly never-ending smile on his face whenever you are around him.
  11. He will mimic, imitate, or try to do whatever you happen to do in the way you do it.
  12. He might tease you a lot, and this can especially be a massive sign he likes you when he doesn’t tease other girls around him
  13. He may playfully pinch your body, especially hands and cheeks.
  14. He starts many conversations. He asks questions and is interested in talking to you.
  15. He compliments and congratulates you, even when there is nothing big you have achieved to warrant praise from him.
  16. He compliments your make-up, clothing, or fragrance. This is a way of indirectly telling you 'I like you'.
  17. He may seem jealous when you are with other guys.
  18. He develops a strong interest in your social media conversations and comments. Suddenly he is commenting or liking your Facebook status updates or retweeting the tweets you have made.
  19. He may shower you with gifts.
  20. He prefers to be near you, even when he is supposed to be busy with work or attending to another important task.
  21. You receive lots of phone calls from him. He asks how you are doing and what you are up to. Does he call you often when he has nothing important to tell you? That's a sign.
  22. He will start acting nicer and more generous when you are around him.
  23. If he willingly says yes to everything you ask him to accomplish or do, he likes you. He most likely doesn't want to disappoint you by saying no.
  24. He does not want anyone to offend or insult you in his presence. He will defend you and make sure that you are safe and sound.
  25. He always wants to hang out with you and wants to introduce you to his friends
  26. He is less likely to allow you return back something you have borrowed from him before. He may tell you there is no need to return it and encourage you to keep it for yourself.
  27. He may call you sweetie, honey, baby, and the like.
  28. Does he say (or behave) like he misses you when you are away from one another for some time? He likes you.
  29. He will do things to make you laugh and stay positive.
  30. He will comfort you when you are having a hard time. He is the first one to say sorry when something unfortunate happens to you.
  31. He abandons whatever he is doing in order to find time to be with you and talk to you.
  32. When you are not around, he will ask your friends for clues about where you are.
  33. He may dress to get your attention and impress you.
  34. Body language signs of attraction is a sure way of telling if a guy likes you or not. Observe his body language to tell if he likes you.
  35. He will stare at you from top to bottom. If you see him running his eyes from top to toe, he has an interest in you.
  36. He will sit next to you, lean over you, or hover close by every chance he gets.
  37. He will ask lots of questions. He wants to know more about you and your opinions on varying topics etc.
  38. He wants to be seen with you. He doesn’t feel ashamed of the two of you being seen walking together, having a conversation, or having a great time. All that matters to him is you.
  39. He may tell you that you are beautiful and sexy, even if you don't feel it.
  40. He is your best companion when you are sick or not feeling well. He visits you and spends countless number of hours beside you.
  41. He will offer you unnecessary help to impress you and keep you happy. In the workplace, he may undertake some of your tasks.
  42. He does things aimed at proving to you that he is the most suitable man that you will ever find in your lifetime.
  43. He may offer you financial favors.
  44. He doesn’t mind spending on you and may spend his last dollar in order to impress you.
  45. He will want to be there for important events you may be having like graduating from college or celebrating a birthday.
  46. He will offer you support. This includes grabbing you by the hand to help you cross a busy highway.
  47. He will sacrifice his commitments to do something for you.
  48. He is generous with many nice and kind words.
  49. He will treat you better than he treats any other girl.
  50. When he starts sharing his personal secrets, you know he's definitely falling in love!

Remember to Observe Closely

There is no exact science that will tell you if a guy likes you back or not. However, there are many signs guys display when they are interested that can help you predict (or at least give clues) as to whether he likes you or not.

That said, it is hard to determine if a guy likes you as many factors come into play. Also, the behavior that you see in a man may not necessarily mean interest. Sometimes, only one or two signs may not be enough to make a judgment. Lastly, signs of attraction or love shown by one guy may not be the same used by another.

You should study the man from as many angles as possible before deciding whether he is into you or not.

Are you in a relationship?

      Sounds like the guy likes you, Bell. He might not be confident enough (or old enough yet to feel confident) about asking you out, but he's doing the best he can for now.

      If he's as nice as you say, I think you should be patient and stick with him. He'll probably grow into a really great date with time.

      Hi, I really like this guy in one of my classes. We always sit together and walk to train station and he is really nice, he would always whispered when he is talking to me in class and I have to lean in to hear what he says and he would butt in my cono with another girl about the things I like to do .Idk why when ever I talk to him his ears turn red and he is acting shy in the our class even though he is good at speaking in front of a crowd and another thing me and my friends noticed is that his friend kept on stating at me in our lecture and I always catch him turning away.

      Would you want a boyfriend who touches other girls in front of you, Kayla? I feel sorry for his current girlfriend ... and any future girlfriends. I don’t know why you’d bother following him anywhere. Sounds like he loves himself more than he’ll ever love any girl.

      He’s either rude or he’s immature, Liz. I’m guessing he’s only young and not yet ready to make an effort to get to know any girls, so don’t waste time chasing him. When he’s eventually ready he’ll know where to find you. Just remain friendly but don’t push him. He might be more interesting (and interested) in a couple of years.

      I’m not sure what you’re asking. If you don’t know him but you think he likes you ... what? Talk to him if you want to get to know him. Avoid him if you don’t.

      The thing is, whenever I actually say something to him he’ll just: 1. Turn around and talk to friends or 2. Say something back but not start a conversation.

      Boys are very confusing.

      I don’t know why you’re having sex with a guy before you know if he actually likes you, Kay. Hard to imagine it turning into a great love story. You’re taking a chance with STDs with this guy and there’s always a chance of accidental pregnancy. That’s a lot of risks to take with a guy who might not feel the same way about you.

      I think you’ve passed the stage where there’s any point asking if he likes you. You’re at the stage where you want to know if there’s any hope of a future together. He obviously likes you enough to have sex, but that’s not the same as wanting a relationship.

      Hey! There’s one guy I have on my mind right now.

      As of right now, he stares at me like a crazy person but doesn’t say anything if its not necessary. (He is a Capricorn boy). We have some classes together, and all my friends say that he stares at me and they all agree that he likes me - but I’m not sure. He meets most of the signs but i really dont know. Can you help me?

      Ginni, I gave you 50 clues to look for. If staring and touching his hair is all you’ve got from the guy, that’s not much to go on.

      Start talking with him. You’ll find out more about each other and then maybe see more positive signs.

      Teeny, he knows you like him now so you’ll just have to wait and see if he talks to you more often or less often. The guy will be processing what you said. It might take him a while to react so be patient.

      I liked a guy and even confessed that I had a bit of a crush on him. He was really flat to respond. He's like 'oh, okay. It's okay:)'. I don't know what that means, should I take it for a positive response or a negative one? Please do answer.

      Why would you be letting anyone touch and rub your leg? That’s a very intimate gesture yet you’re obviously not in any kind of relationship. I think it is wiser to actively discourage such behavior. Besides, you said he’s a kid which makes it sound even more inappropriate.

      It is hard to know exactly what you mean, Holly, because you didn't give any examples. I'm thinking you should say, 'That was okay when we dated, (name), but we're not dating now. So please don't do that.'

      Jane, I think anyone who asks a guy (or a girl) if they like them is putting them in a really tough spot. What am I supposed to say if I don’t know if you like me or not and it might be a trick question?

      I believe it is more honest and will get a more honest response if you tell them you like them first.

      How will a guy react? Depends on the guy. The only thing you can control is how you react to his reaction, so maybe think about your options there.

      As for your question about being straight forward vs flirty and hard to get, I don’t think you should worry about pretending to be someone you’re not. Different guys like different types of girls. You want a partner who suits you and accepts the way you are. So I think you should be true to yourself and just be what’s natural for you. Hope this helps answer your questions.

      I have been reading a lot of the comments people post and what you respond to them. I have a few questions if you have time.

      1. It is sort of similar to Isabelle's comment but if you want to know if a guy likes you and they ar showing signs, do you strait up ask them or just look for signs.

      2. If you tell a guy that you like him (assuming he does like you back) how would he normally respond?

      3. Vice verse if you tell a guy you like him (assuming he doesn't like you back) how would he normally respond?

      4. Do guys like it when your pretty strait forward about your feelings or when you are more flirty and hard to get?

      Daniel Long 3 weeks ago from All Over

      The easiest way to tell someone you like them, Isabelle, is to respond to something they say. Use it as your second sentence, like ‘You’re funny. I like you.’ Or ‘You’re nice. I like you.’ Just state it as a fact. No need to make it into a bit gushy moment. Simply put it out there and then keep doing whatever it is you were doing.

      I can’t see how I can help you choose between 3 different guys, Lucy. You might have to draw a name out of a hat. The more sensible option would be to think of an event one guy would like more than the others. That way you have an excuse for choosing him not them.

      I recently started attending this school club and the other day there was a new boy there. He would copy the looks I gave him or tell me that I wasn't ugly. This week when I went ahead to the weekly meeting he kept staring at me and taking my phone. Then afterwards we were at the park hanging for a bit and we were trying to see how many pull ups we could too and he tried volunteering to hold my waist while I did them. Is this a sign or does it mean he is a gentleman or thinks of me as a really good friend?

      If he’s young, Clare, you’ll probably just have to wait until he’s grown up a bit. Here’s the line I suggest you could use if he’s mature enough to respond ... ‘Either talk t me politely or don’t talk to me at all.’ I think you should set the ground rules and see how he responds.

      You know... I commented on your site before to tell you about my 'childish' first crush ever... I never fell in love with anyone before and no one made me feel special... Complimenting..visiting my bedroom and stuff... But just like you said... This infatuation wouldn't head anywhere and isn't really healthy for me... Plus I don't think a normal girl like me deserve to even have a crush on someone great like that... I will take this chance to just comment it out here... And end this once and for all...

      It wasn't really healthy.... At all... You know.. You keep daydreaming....fantasizing.. Only to realize that this is not a reality.... This is not to encourage many girls in love to lose hope... By all means if u are someone who experience something like me(previous comments) think about yourself first... You know u will only end up hurt....

      Well anyways thanks Daniel for waking me up.... This mark the end of my Fantasy....

      Leave him alone, Dinah. He’s married so you should step back and accept he’s not the guy for you. When you’re madly in love with your own husband in the future, are you going to want other women making a move on him? You wouldn’t want to jinx your future relationship by messing with someone else’s. I think you should just look for another guy.

      Yes, Jenese, sure sounds like he likes you. You have to decide how you feel about him. If you don’t want him making advances you’d better play things differently so he doesn’t feel comfortable laying his head on you. If you feel you’re too young to be getting intimate, tell him. But if you’re at an age and stage and would like him to kiss you, good news. Sounds like that’s where he’s heading.

      Daniel Long 7 weeks ago from All Over

      If you want to move past just being friends and have a boyfriend you have to make a choice, Rose. But before you decide, it makes sense to talk with each one and be confident a) you won’t lose interest in him quickly and b) he’s actually interested in having a girlfriend. It would be disappointing to choose one and lose the other if things don’t work out. So maybe try this ...

      Say to one of them, ‘We’re just friends, right? Do you think we’d ever be more than friends?’ and see where the conversation takes you.

      Malwa, you should take any opportunities to talk with him and see how it goes. Don’t be afraid of the competition, but don’t be too disappointed if you don’t turn out to be the one he chooses. I’m guessing you like him a lot but don’t really ‘love’ him. I believe you need to know someone well and trust them and all kinds of things before love really happens.

      Holly, girls are just as difficult. We all have trouble getting to know each other. If there’s a guy you particularly like, talk with him and make it easy for him to talk with you. That’s your starting point.

      Why do guys tell you they don't like you when in fact they do? Why do they lie about that? Or do they just think that you don't like them back in the same was? Why are guys so difficult?

      Happy to help you. Here’s what I suggest you do. Thank him for asking you out, ‘because it was fun having someone want to date me at such a famously romantic time’. Then quickly say ‘But I am so not ready to date. It is okay for you in Year 11, but I’m still in Year 9 and finding this whole process is something I’m just not ready for. So please, will you be my friend again and help things get back to normal?’

      That should do it. When he agrees, as I’m sure he will, grab him by the arm and drag him off for ice cream or to do something you do as friends. Don’t miss a beat. Move straight into friend stuff and you won’t have that awkward stage.

      If he looks shattered (which would be inappropriate given the short time you’ve been dating), give him an ‘excuse’ for his friends so he won’t felt foolish. ‘As much as I hate to admit it, I think I’m still a kid. You need to date someone older.’ That’s a really easy and diplomatic way to exit, and it leaves the way open for you to easily date someone else when you feel the time might be right.

      I’ll be interested to hear how you go, if you feel like writing back.

      Dont know what to do 2 months ago

      hey, I am friends with this guy, he is in grade 11 and I am in grade 9. And on Valentine's day, he asked me out, I thought I liked him more than just friends, but when we started "dating" , I just started avoiding him without realizing, and he just asks me to hang out all the time, but I keep saying that I have things to do. And I have made a promise to myself before, its like a standard. It is that I would never date anyone shorter than me. I do realize that is hard because myself is 5'8. i also talked with my friends about it, and they said that I should tell him how I feel, and not lead him on. However I really wanna be friends with him, and I don't know how to "break up" with him without getting him hating me and other stuff. I read a lot of the tips you gave to other people, and I thought that you will most likely be able to help me out.

      Hi again, Lidie. Early teens is/was a tough time for most of us. Lucky the years pass and things get much better! Is it your friends who ‘torture’ you, Lidie? What do you mean? Tell me the problem and we’ll figure out a solution. Can’t wave a magic wand but I’m pretty sure I’ll have a few ideas to help. :)

      You say you're a fairly young girl. It certainly sounds like the guy you like is young as well. I suggest you wait while you both mature. I don't believe he's yet at a stage to be much of a partner and it would be a shame to waste what might be a great relationship in the future.

      I'am a fairly young girl and a hopeless romantic, I like this guy and I'am having trouble understanding if he likes me. We have the same group of friends so we met like that and we have been pretty close for almost 2 years now. I've liked him since I laid eyes on him yet he is strange. He doesn't have the best social skills and that's why I'am having trouble. He teases me endlessly, he often writes or doodles on my arms or my notebooks. I've noticed that he blushes around me and he often touches me or bumps into me. I've asked him multiple times if he had a crush and he always says, "no". He only acts this way with me, yet sometimes I can catch him being a bit too 'friendly' around this other girl when I'm around. I plan on confessing soon but I feel like I may get rejected.

      Some people just don’t want to have kids, Tessi. And at 27, he might not be ready. If you want to have a child I think you need to have a heart to heart talk with him, telling him how you feel. You might have to choose to walk away and find another guy who is ready to be a parent. This guy seems great for you in many ways, but it sure doesn’t sound like he’s interested in long term commitment. At least he’s not lying to you or giving you false hope. Got to give him credit for that I guess.

      Lidie, you should give more attention to your friends and stop boring them about your crush. You’re going to need friends by your side as you grow up. Take my word for it, a crush is normal but an obsession isn’t. Your best friends have given you fair warning. Let it go ... before they let you go. Do I think he likes you? No, not in the way you’re hoping, dreaming, obsessing. You’re a child, Lidie. Your time will come, and that’s something to look forward to. But do yourself a favor and stop trying to be older than you are. I think you should plan movie nights with your friends and other fun stuff for your group without torturing them with talk about your crush. It is just part of growing up. We all have to go through it but don’t make it hardest than it needs to be.

      I am kindof friends with this really cute guy and I really think he likes me... He usually starts conversations and compliments me alot! He stares at me sometimes and when I turn to look at him, he turns away... He shows off when I am around. I really ike him... My best friends tell me I have this 'Obsession' since I talk about him alot... He is in 9th grade and I am in 7th but I guess it is fine cuz' my friend has crush on a 10th grader and s he i s in the same grade as me. When I turned 12 I felt VERY obsessed of my crush... I feel as if he likes me, do you? I need advice, can anyone give me?

      He sounds like a good friend, Dee and because you have so much in common and spend so much time together it would be a shame to play this wrong. I don’t know how old you are but I’m thinking you should just continue the way you are ... and leave the future to Fate. Maybe he’ll be your boyfriend one day ... or maybe he’ll help you get your foot in the door of a Hollywood film some day. I think you should be patient, enjoy his company and wait and see what happens.

      I like this one guy in my class first period...he was new from another school about a month or two after school had already started. I was the first person/girl he knew since I see him first every day haha. But he told my friend that he finds some things about me unattractive after she assumed he liked me when she saw him and I walking together, as we do normally every day after first period. But yet, he ALWAYS compliments me on things like my outfit and stuff, and he always pokes at my sides and tries to make me laugh. And once I told him that this creepy dude liked me and he said he would fight him off so that the creepy dude would leave me alone and another time I told him this weird kid touched my butt and he told me to let him know if it happened again, sounding mad about it. Him and I both like the same music and want to become actors as a career and we're both in drama club right now. I'm just realllllly trying to figure out if he likes me or not!! But one more thing, he doesn't know I like him....

      Sorry Ard, I don’t know how gay guys respond so I’m not one to be offering advice. All I’d suggest is that you wait and see if he makes an effort to get to know you. At this point though, everyone seems to think he’s straight so you’ll have to be discreet until you figure out what’s really going on. But I’m guessing you already know that.

      There’s a huge difference between Year 12 and Year 9. When you’re in Year 12 you’ll view Year 9 as ‘kids’ (like you view Year 6 kids now.)

      By the time you’re 18 and he’s 21 you might have a chance. The age gap won’t seem so big then.

      I have a crush on this dude and I kind of think that he likes me too before I have a crush on him. Lately, I came out as gay to everybody and he also knew. And then I kind of found out that he likes me (I think). The reason why I start to have a crush on him is because before, I mean like in 2 weeks ago, I was in my class, and was about to sit at my place and then I felt like someone was watching me. So I turned my head to him and we literally maintained our eye contact for like 2-3 seconds and then he threw a big, sincere, bright, shiny and excited grin to me which literally melted my heart. I responded to it with a cute smile. And then recently, he started to treat like in an unusual way a guy would treat a guy. He would touch my hand on purpose by giving an excuse like "May I take a look at your rings?", looked at me from head to toe but not in front of me, he would look at me from my bace, I knew that because I turned to him. And so many more,. The majority of the signs you stated looked similar to how he acts towards me and what makes me even more confused now was that he is straight (at least I think he is) or maybe he's in the closet I don't know. Is there any chance for me to know whethe he likes me or not? And also, whenever he sits with me, he often contemplates by looking outside, in a cute way lol.

      Hi, I am friends with this girl, and her brother is very nice and cute. And I kinda like him but he is in grade 12 and I am in grade 9. And he is very popular and on the other hand, I am not. Sometimes, when I hang out with his sister, he just gives us the dirty look. I really wanna get to know him but i don't know what to do.

      Yes, calm and nonpopular person, it sure sounds as if he likes you. He might be nervous, hoping you’re interested in him too. That’s a fun thought isn’t it?

      There’s always the danger you might get your heart broken - or he might get his broken - but I think you should keep talking to each other whenever you get the chance and see where it leads. Unless he’s a jerk, of course. I’m hoping he’s not a jerk because I like the idea of him falling for the smart girl in his math class ... and you falling for him.

      If he asks you to do his homework, he’s definitely a jerk. For now, let’s give him the chance to prove himself.

      So there is this guy sitting behind me in math. He is pretty tall and plays basket ball so he extends his feet right next to mine and kicks them occasionally. One day, the teacher told us we could work in groups of 2. I wanted to work alone but I heard my name in the back the second the teacher finished talking. Instead of going with his popular friends, he asked me if I wanted to work with him. We started then I heard his friends in the back asking where he was. Then they saw us and started making romantic noises. He didn't let me explain him the problem like I thought he wanted me to, he started talking about really serious stuff like his dreams, his life and people he didn't like. When I would talk, he would look at me straight in the eyes, pass his hands in his hair many times, raised his eyebrows and looked a bit nervous. He was also really close, like 30 cm from my face, so sometimes i would tie my laces because i got nervous too. We have one common friend and when I talked to her about our work, she just had a really weird smile she never showed me before. Plus, we don't really talk about boys like that. I want to know what it means. Does he really like calm and nonpopular person like me?

      You won’t know if you like each other until you start talking to each other and learning about each other. For all you know he could be texting a bunch of other girls at the same time. So if you think you might be interested in him you’ll have to get his attention and talk with him face to face. See if you share the same sense of humour and things like that.

      HI, I know this guy and he just broke up with my friend( we are not really close) and he started texting me, but then stopped. After a weekish, he started texting again, and he text a lot, like about all different things, ( like if I post something, he may reply or comment) and he likes to confuse me in texts and tease me texts, but I don't know if we like each other.

      I guess, Joya. But a man who manages to hide every sign of being in love is probably not going to be the best partner. Wouldn’t you want your man to be demonstrative and actively show his emotions during a relationship?

      Sounds to me like you’re all really young, Bean. Kids send messages to each other via their friends. You probably won’t find out how he really feels about you until you’re older. You’ll need to actually spend time talking directly with someone to figure out how you/they feel. Be honest. You don’t really know each other yet. But it sounds like he’ll be interested in getting to know you a bit better at some stage.

      You know what to do, Angelina. Be an active part of his band ... and his life. Share your songs with him once you’re confident they’re fine-tuned, but I’m not sure you should be telling him they’re about him just yet. Impress him with your songwriting efforts without making him feel under too much pressure.

      Just be patient, Jasmine. If he dumps his current girlfriend, he’s available. If he doesn’t break up with her, he’s not. So I think you should just be friendly and pleasant while he decides what he wants to do. But don’t be a flirt or throw yourself at him. You don’t want him to take you for granted. And remember, you should expect time talking and getting to know each other before becoming girlfriend and boyfriend if that is to happen. So don’t let your dreams get too far ahead of reality.

      You’re not making it very easy on yourself or him, are you Rebecca? The guy is trying to engage you in conversation and you’re failing to take the bait. How will either of you know whether or not you like each other if you don’t talk? Have proper conversations and get to know each other. It will become clear soon enough if he likes you or not.

      2 years ago, I moved from where I am to a different city and had only a few weeks left of school for my freshman year. Sophomore year started and at the end of sophomore year I got a boyfriend and had to move, we moved back to where we were my freshman year. About 2 weeks passed and my boyfriend broke up with me, and immediately got together with his ex. I had this guy Logan in my English 2 class, I liked him since the end of 8th grade. He was in a relationship when I was, he found out that I broke up with my ex, and then he broke up with his girlfriend. We talked almost every time we had class together but I was to shy to start the conversation.... Junior year started and I have home in my English 3 class. We rarely talk now, but he sometimes tries to make small talk. And when I’m with a friend and he’s near he tries to get closer or moves to where he can see me. The day we got back from Christmas break, I was talking to my friend, and we were in line to get our schedules for second semester. Well Logan was standing in front of my friend. He was asking her about this teacher because he just got his schedule, and I was just looking down at my phone. My friend didn’t know who the teacher was but when he walked by me, he wasn’t very close to touching me, but the started walking closer and bumped into me, like brushed up against my shoulder. I still was looking at my phone because I didn’t know what to do.

      I want to try to find a way to tell him I like him, but I’ve been trying to find ways to know that he likes me to before I say anything. But I keep confusing myself, because I don’t know if he is giving me signals that he likes me to. Can you help me, please??
