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.

  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.

Questions & Answers

  • I’ve been hanging out with this guy that I’ve been interested in for a month or two now, and he’s exhibited signs that were mentioned in your article, but I’m not sure. I have his number, and we text a little, but I feel really nervous about texting him because I don't want to come off as annoying. We talk incessantly when we see each other in person, but when we text it just seems like neither of us knows what to talk about. Is this normal and what should I do next?

    Texting is very popular, but many people can’t actually talk face to face. You’re one of the lucky ones! It is much better to build a relationship in person so be happy that you and your guy talk so much when you see each other.

    I suggest you just use texting to arrange your next meeting, for example, when and where to meet. Leave all the important news and fun chatting to when you see each other in person.

  • Can a teacher like a student who is eight years younger?

    I’m guessing you’re the student. I have some friends who are teachers, and every year there are students flirting with them and sometimes even declaring their ‘love.’

    It is not unusual to have a crush on a hot teacher. But that’s all it can be, just a crush. Why? Because teachers can get in huge trouble if they behave inappropriately with a student. Some teachers have even gone to jail because of it.

    The truth is, my teacher friends are all in happy, loving relationships and have no interest at all in students. So while you’re dreaming about your teacher, I’m guessing he’s already living a happy life.

    You should be concentrating on your schoolwork. Do well and graduate. There is the slightest possibility your teacher might someday consider dating you ... but you’d have to be old enough to have graduated from school.

    Eight years is a big gap when you’re just a teenager. By the time you’re in your 20s, it won’t seem so big, but you know he’ll probably be married by then if he’s not already.

    I think instead of wasting your youth obsessing about an older man who is out of your reach; you should be looking at guys your age. Aim to find a boyfriend among the students, not your teachers.

  • I don't know if a guy I like is really into me, but he acts awkwardly when I’m around him. He tries to make me laugh, he stares at me a lot, and he likes to be close to me. Are these signs that he likes me?

    Yes, those are among the many signs I’ve listed in my article. See if you can spot any more if you’re still not sure if the guy likes you.

  • What does it mean if a guys' face gets red when he is talking to you?

    If the guy's face gets red when he is talking to you, I'm guessing he's either nervous or embarrassed. Either way, that's not a bad thing.

    Don't make any comment about it because you'll only make it worse for him. I think the more time you spend talking to each other, the more comfortable he'll feel around you.

  • I have a friend and we are seatmates at school. He tells me his personal secrets and his hobbies. He keeps asking me if I know who his crush is but I’ve mentioned every girl in the school, but still the answer is no. Would it be possible that it is me?

    You have a few ways you could reply to find out if you are his crush. Which option you choose will depend on whether or not you are happy to be his crush.

    If you just want to be friends, you should respond in a way that gives him a chance to say, ‘No, not you’ without being too embarrassed. So if you really don’t want him to admit you’re his crush, say something like ...

    ‘I’m running out of ideas. I hope you’re not going to tell me it’s me!’

    But if you’re happy to be his crush, you could say ....

    ‘About the only girl left in the whole school is me.’ Then wait and see what he says.

    If you like him a lot and want him to know it, simply say ...

    ‘It would be nice if it was me.’

    My final suggestion if you want to force him to say he has a crush on you, instead of you having to ask if it is you ...

    ‘If you want me to know who your crush is, you’re going to have to tell me. I’m not guessing anymore.’

      Rather not say 

      12 days ago

      There is this boy that I liked for a long time and two of my friends seem to have liked him in the pass now I told them I have feelings for him and one of them are trying to hook me up with him the other one I am not friends with anymore. So now he has been a little flirtatious but he is always playing around with me and the girl that is trying to hook us up. I know he is not a player because we grew to be best friends. I love him to death but I don't want to ruin our friendship. A lot of girls in the pass broke his heart ,like my friend that is trying to hook us up , but she didn't really do it. So ima try to get more closer then next year ima tell him I have feelings and hopefully take my vCard. Thanks for listening

      cant it be me 

      12 days ago

      I love someone. that's the truth. I cant change the fact that Im still into him even though we don't have a relationship. we have an age gap and also he has a girlfriend. I check all the signs to proove something when someone ask me why him? but still have no signs. What can I do to make him fall in love with me or make me his fallback or like me or be his friend. im a first year highschool this coming school year and hes graduating from collage. I think im probably inlove to someone who thinks its just a puppy love because im too young. So can you answer my question. just answer it once. thank you

      For the past 2 years, I've been getting closer to my childhood friend. we only met 3 times as kids. We often meet up in group settings with our friends and family. He often hangs around me when he could talk to anyone in the room. He's very quiet (I think its because he doesn't know what to say; like starting a conversation) But for some reason, he's been getting really confident and talking and hanging around me a lot. Whenever we're together, we could literally talk for 2 hours or more. He'll find ways to tease me and laugh (innocent jokes). We have good banter and often times, I'll be on one side of the room, trying to not seclude myself in the corner for too long, he'll follow me around like a lost puppy.

      Another funny thing he does is how he always has this intense stare. As if what I'm saying is life or death lol. All my friends know him and how he acts and are saying that this is different. That he doesn't give everyone the same attention he gives me.

      I keep telling them he would never like me and that he's just comfortable around me but now I don't know what to think.

      So there's this guy in my class...I kinda like him, and we are really good friends. He knows I like him because some how my friend found out. He is always staring at me, playfully punches me, tells me dumb jokes, and always asks me questions or teases/mimics me. My friend told him that she and another friend thought he liked me. He was like noooo and started smiling, and went to his best friend and said something to him. Then my friend asked him what he had said, and he pulled him away and we all heard him say, Just make something up don't tell her please. Yes, he does have a girlfriend, and he has been asking me questions about his relationship and how he is scared about how it is going. Sadly, if she wants him to tell her something and he refuses (like answers for homework) she threatens him and says she will break up with him. He told her for somewhat reason false statings about what I said about their relationships and I didnt even say anything. But now she is really mad, and he is now going along with her. His best friend told him his secrets and he told me. I would never tell anyone. We always share everything with each other. IM not sure if he likes me or if he doesnt. He still acts the same.

      All my friends say this guy at school likes me bc we text all the time and we have become super close. They think he likes me bc he is always there for me and will drop everything to make sure I am happy. Idk if that means anything but he also teases me in a nice way and will defend me in front of his friends even tho I doubt it means anything bc he’s just a nice guy. Idk how I feel abt him but I don’t think he likes me and that’s perfectly ok. We are very good friends tho and he walks me to classes sometimes and to my locker a lot too bc we often are in the middle of conversations. I can’t tell but from what my friends say he flirts with me all the time and he compliments me and has made a huge effort to get to know me. I read this article and was able to check off multiple things but I still am not sure if he likes me. I just hope that if he does he isnt afraid to tell me bc I would hate for him to have to go through that. Can u help me?

      Also if it helps my friends made me ask him over text once if he likes me and he said no but u can never be sure because he could have been lying since it wasn’t in person. Idk if I’m just overthinking this especially since I believe him but deep down I have a feeling he does like me and I kinda want to know how he feels so can u give me ur opinion? Thx

      Sounds like he likes you, Rose. Keep talking with him and make it easy for him to ask you out. Flirt with him a little if you feel like it. Just don’t mention the boner. Embarrassment can kill romance and some guys will find it too hard to approach the girl again.

      Simple solution, Jessica. Talk to the guy. Be prepared to admit you behaved badly back then (if you think he even remembers it.)

      You’ve matured a lot in the past three years. Of course you’ll be even more grown up in another three years, so if it doesn’t work out for you now, have another try when you’re older.

      Hi Rishika. I can tell you’re young. Here’s my best advice for you. Figure out a way to start up conversations with him. You two need to get talking. How is he going to know if he likes you if he doesn’t know you at all.

      Don’t tell your friends you have a crush on him because they’ll make it all more complicated. Just talk with the guy, even if it is just to say hi as you pass at first. Make yourself approachable and friendly so he wants to have a conversation with you. That’s your best starting point.

Another thing that happened was that I was late to class and I noticed right when I sat(which is right next to him)he grabs his jacket and I noticed he is trying to cover a boner . Also there is a thing called nhd it is Project thing it is really big and he asked me if I wanted to be his patner. 35 of these thing expectually the last one for sure he does.

We don't talk to eachother,but sometimes I have noticed him staring at me and asking for something sometimes I even feel as if he wants to stay around me even my friends say that he might like me but they don't know that I have a huge crush on him. Sometimes I have found him staring at my friends too but I can't understand. I am in a very confused state and I don't know what to do or make sure whether he likes or dislikes me . PLEASE HELP PLEASE!

      That's life, Zoey. You can't do anything about it, even if it annoys you. Just accept that he finds something about you interesting enough to be watching you right now. But if you actually like him and want to encourage him to talk with you, I suggest you say 'hi' as you pass him. Then see if he gets up the nerve to speak with you. If you don't like him, just ignore him.

      I'm really pleased to hear you didn't send the guy any nude photos. He's a loser who was just trying to pressure you into sending him the pictures. Smart girls don't do that. So good on you for saying 'no'.

      I don't believe you should bother with him again. He's trouble. He told you didn't have feelings for you after you didn't send him any nude photos. If he was really in love with you, he'd never have said that. A guy who really loves you cares about your feelings. This guy doesn't.

      So, Wura, there's nothing you can do to make him fall back in love with you. He was never in love with you in the first place. He was just using you. so forget him.

      Keep watch for a genuinely nice, loving guy who won't say mean things to you and especially won't ask you to put yourself in a compromising position by asking for nude photos of you. Let's be honest. No guy who loves a girl needs photos of her naked. He just wants to be with her and enjoy her company without putting pressure on her. That's the kind of guy you should be looking for.

      If you ever let a guy have naked pictures of you, what's going to happen to those photos after you break up? You won't be able to get them back and he'll probably show them to his friends and maybe even post them on the internet. So don't fall into that trap, my friend. And avoid the guy who asked you for them.

      So, there's this guy, and he has a "GF" but apparently, they broke up, and that's what she told me but she isn't really trustworthy. He keeps on staring off in my direction, he makes these bets with me, and when I tell him to stop doing something ect.orange justice, he stops.

      BUT... He's really friendly with a lot of girls...

      There's a guy I've known for a year. He started saying hi and waving to me in the hallways, every day, and seems interested in things I do. I know he doesn't have a girlfriend. He's shy, and doesn't talk much, but talks to me. Is this enough to tell if he likes me?

      And after he proposed i feel that I'm starting to like him too .is this called "liking "or is it just a atomatic reaction ???? How do I avoid it???

      Hes kinda unable to focus on anything if I don't talk to him and ignore him ,am I being selfish? I'm really confused :( what now

      My crush visited me a day ago, and he showed me around town. He offered to pay for drinks, food, and fare costs. He wanted to make a deal if he found somewhere I like, then we would go out to eat.

      When we got home, he decided to hide. He wanted me to find him.

      We had am emotional conversation after, and he asked if I was ok and if I needed a hug, and that he was sorry. We went out for dinner, and we talked about my ex. And he called him a jerk, and decided to text him. My ex answered, and started being rude. And then he blocked him and said :" why don't we get some icecream?"

      Do you think he likes me?

      I met a guy about a month ago at highschool. We talked to each other a lot, and now we are friends on Facebook. We write to each other almost everyday, and he seems to show interest in my hobbies (horses etc.). He didn't know anything about horses before we met. And he remembered something about horses I told him a month ago. He wrote that he never will forget it... It's summer break now, and unfortunately it isn't possible for us to meet face2face again before it's over. I wonder if he likes me. Or is he just being friendly?

      Hi, last year I went to summer camp with not too high expectations. There was this one guy who I wanted to be just friends with, but I started to like him. He gave me the signs and even asked me if I like someone. Well, I never get to an answer, cause the same day he bumped into a tree in a forest and had to go to the hospital for a couple of days. That was sadly the end of our friendship, cause he lives in a different town far, far away. But then my friends discovered his FB and texted him some pretty teasing things, with my permission, cause I was really angry at him for not confessing to me. I realized how bad idea it was when he blocked one of my friends and told them that he isnt going to the camp next year. I went to the same camp even this year, expecting him to not be there. Ofc he was. I wanted to apologize, but he did it first and from that it seemed like it will be good few days with him. I suddenly started to feel the same thing for him, even though I realized all his flaws during the whole year. But I found out during one convesation with our friends that he is taken. He talked bout her in such a cold way, telling us only the basic informations. From that day, he wasnt as nice and caring to me as he always was and everytime someone asked bout his gf, his smile and sunny personality disappeared. Later I found out that the girl never mentions her boyfriend and maybe actually is dating now a girl, but they had some photos together and he talked bout her in a really sweet way in the past.

      I noticed some of the signs and I want to know if Im not just lying to myself bout him loving me or not. He gave me all the body language signs, but Im not sure bout the others.

      When we were eating, he often said something to our table and if he wasnt telling a certain person a question, he always looked at me and continued the talk with me.

      I once stole his hat cause I wanted to tease him, so I had it in my backpack in my room and wanted to take a shower. When I was finished, my roommate told me to come out from the bathroom and when I did, he was standing at the doorstep, looking at me almost completely naked. He started to apologize, his cheeks turned red and with his eyes closed wanted me to give him the hat. After that he ran out of our room and didnt talk to me the rest of the evening.

      I was playing truth or dare with some girls who knew bout my crush on him and they gave me the dare to confess to him. I wanted to do it in privacy, cause he is really shy and wouldnt react naturally. But my limit to the dare was one day, so I had to do it during a visit in the boys room. Everyone laughed or looked shocked, but he was silent, red and apologized to me when we were leaving.

      He always laughed at my jokes, despite the horrible punch lines.

      The last day we had a dancing party or something like that and at one point we had to chose our partner to dance with. I didnt want to ask him, so I let our instructors to gimme some random name. You can guess which name it was. While we were dancing, he was extremely blushing, apologizing and told me that this shouldve happened the last year. When the song ended, only us two didnt notice and my friend had to tell us.

      We both are kinda young teenagers so I dont actually imagine something more serious, especially when he is still in puberty, but kiss or something like that would be nice. Everyone was telling us that we had some chemistry and we fit each other perfectly. But when it comes to a more personal talk, he starts to act extremely shy, so I suppose I am the one who should somehow begin, right? Should I even try the next year, or is it already lost?

      I think it means you should be watching and waiting for another guy, Luz. Unless you like the idea of a silent relationship with a guy who doesn’t express any emotion or interest, I think you should forget about him. Find someone more interesting ... and more interested.

      Destiny, if he has a girlfriend and you’re her close friend, why is he asking for kisses and hugs from you? And why are you asking me how to make him love you?

      It seems to me you should be thinking about your ‘close friend’ and her feelings before you actively start trying to steal her boyfriend (although I suspect you’ve already begun.)

      You should think long and hard about whether you want to do this. It will probably cost you her friendship. Better, in my opinion, to wait until they’ve ended their relationship.

      There’s not many things worse than the betrayal of having your close friend steal your partner.

      me and my guy had been best friends since seventh grade. at first, I would deny that I have a crush on him because, I know he's my best friend, and it might affect our friendship. although, I tease him with my gal pal because I know she has a crush on him, but this time she told me she's over him. and now, I know it sounds crazy but whenever I get jealous of them, I would tease them. it's kind of weird right? so now, he's been off, which is the good kind. and I really want to know if he does like me back.

      first, he would poke me on the waist for good old nothing, then he would laugh. is that a weird thing? second, he's always the first one to start the convo, and when one of my classmates joined in( which is his best bud), he got... annoyed? or something else. he would pinch me whenever I talk to his bud! and give me this angry-annoyed look. third, we had this name fight, and we would name it to me or his future son. so, me, I love a good challenge so I did to. and none of us won. (we really are a weird combo) fourth, he would always tickle me. like he just... it's always random! fifth, there's always intense eye contact. just, had to. sorry. and lastly, he just ignores me when I tell him wait for a minute because i'm doing something. then poof! ignorant boy for the whole day.

      please help me out? I am really confused.

      Nervous girl, if your friend tells the boy you like him after you asked her not to, she’s not much of a friend. But as far as the boy goes, if he says anything to you about it I suggest you say something like this ...

      ‘Sure I like you. You seem nice. Doesn’t mean I’m madly in love with you ... but yeah, I think you’re a nice guy.’

      If you can say that with confidence, he’ll think you’re pretty cool.

      So I have this really good guy friend. I told him a while ago that I liked him and he told me kindly that he didn’t feel the same. But the other day we went to an amusement park with some friends and we ended up breaking off and riding rides together and he won me something from the arcade and took photo booth pics together and like couple-y stuff like that. Also the other night he was taking me home from a party and he opened the car door for me, walked me to the door and hugged me goodnight. I can’t tell what he feels for me but he told me a while ago that he thought of me as a sister. I’m so confused! Does he like me or not?

      If you’re dating the wrong guy, Busi, it is time to tell him. If you and his friend really are in love, then you’re wasting everyone’s time at the moment. I think you should tell your boyfriend you’ve really enjoyed your time with him but you just aren’t in love with him. You can’t help it, it’s just the way it is. Tell him you’re sorry but you know it can’t work between the two of you ... and you want him to find a girlfriend who really loves him.

      I think you should break up with him and wait a few weeks before expecting him to get used to the idea of you dating his friend. It would be wrong to date his friend too quickly. If the other guy really loves you he will wait. Meanwhile he needs to support his friend while he gets over you. But he shouldn’t lie if his friend asks if he likes you. He should say ‘yes, but I’ll wait a while before I consider asking her out’.

      Sure I understand, Unicorngirl. If you don’t want to be the first one to make contact, I guess you’ll have to do what millions have done before you, and that’s get a friend to ask him. But you know even that can be a bit embarrassing, don’t you?

      I suggest you think of a reason to speak with him. How he responds and whether or not he talks to you more after that should give you an idea of how he feels about you. You don’t have to say ‘I like you’. Start by asking him about an upcoming event at school or if he’s seen a particular movie or if he’s been to a particular theme park or venue or whatever. Be creative. You just have to break the ice.

      Hi Willow. There’s no point going out with a guy you don’t like, so let him down gently. (You never know if he might grow into a great guy as an adult, and you might be interested in him then so be nice about it now.)

      If the guy you like is not your ‘type’ you could consider making an exception to the general rule and make an effort to get to know him better. You might be surprised to discover he’s a fabulous guy. Unless you suspect he might be trouble (which could explain why he’s not your type), in which case I suggest you wait for another completely different guy to cross your path.

      I like a boy at school but I really want to know if he likes me. I want him to realise i like him without making it obvious but I want to know if he likes me first in case he doesn't like me so it won't be embarrassing. Do you understand? Thanks

      Hi Millie. If you’re interested in the guy but not yet ready to date, I suggest you say ‘Thanks for asking me, that’s really nice.’ (That will prevent him from feeling stupid and flat-out rejected.) Then explain, ‘I’m not ready for dating right now but if you want to swap numbers we could maybe keep in touch.’

      That’ll work if you’re interested in texting or encouraging him not to give up hope. But if you just want to say no, leave out the suggestion to swap numbers. Just say the ‘thanks’ part ... plus ‘but I’m not interested in dating so I’ll have to say a gracious no. But thanks.’

      I think as long as you are polite, he’ll appreciate it and continue to respect you and be able to see you without things being awkward.

      By the way, I admire your willingness to let him down gently. And I congratulate you for not feeling as though you have to accept every date offer you receive.

      Hello Daniel! I admire your effort for helping confused people and i want to thank you for that. Also, I've been reading comments and compared your list to whats happening to me and i can tell you that i am confused.

      I met the neighbor of my friend a few months ago. We quickly became friends because of our similar interests. But during my visits, i noticed a few things. He would definitely shift his body towards me. He would move to be in my view, like move to a seat infront or beside me. He would look at me from time to time and then look away when i look at him.

      So i went undercover and ask my friends who knew him if he likes me and they said yes and that he is planning to tell me.

      Is it ok if i ask how i would respond you him because this never happened before. I was the one to have a crush on people. I kinda like him because he is charming and interesting to talk to. I just dont know if im ready to commit or do anything. I also dont know how to let him down....
