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 in you. Look over them 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.

  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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.’

      I just met this guy at med school and i have known him for 6 months and as surprising it is we call each other best friends, we cuddle each other a lot and i feel like he likes being a bit physical(not in an inappropriate way),people say he looks at me a lot but i havent noticed and he denies having feelings for me and instead asks me if i have feelings for him and i told him that i dont thi k of him in any other way, its a bit complicated between us and we spend a lot of time together like study, groceries etc and he basically has told me a lot about himself. Somethings that only a giy friend of his knows i dont know if he likes me, and is being in denial since i told him i font feel anything for me or i am overthinking.one last thi g-we know each others ohone passwords and we kinda have no secrets and we r like partners in crime

      Cadencevega, your crush is not ready to date yet. There's nothing wrong with that. Keep being friends and maybe you'll get together some time in the future. Or maybe you'll grow sick of him and move onto being interested in somebody else. That's life.

      Don't let your friends spoil what sounds like a fun relationship. They're making a bigger deal out of this than it needs to be. I suggest you just continue being the same way with him now as you were before.

      My crush is two years older then me. He’d always hug me, talk to me, and sit in classes we have together. Every time at lunch he’d call my name and say hi then hug me, we’d talk and hangout until lunch ends. Since a week ago on Friday (today’s Monday) my best friends told me he called me cute and said he’d date me but he isn’t ready to date now. After my best friends told me this my stomach got butterflies, I didn’t believe them. The next period (class) he said hi but just talked to my best friends

      Bella, he’s your best friend, not a stranger. You should be able to talk with him directly. Maybe say something like, “Do you think our relationship has changed a bit lately?” Then tell him you sometimes feel like you’re getting a crush on him and ask, “Is that weird?”

      Start the conversation and see what happens. You’ll soon figure out if you should back off and tell him it is okay, you’re over it ... or if he feels the same way.

      Tough being ‘That Girl’ who lacks confidence. I understand what you’re saying. Here’s a few thoughts for you ...

      We all take risks when entering any relationship, even with general friends. Yes, we might get hurt by people we choose to trust. But you won’t know unless you try.

      Please don’t blame everyone else in the world for the damage your family caused you. There are actually lots of good people out there who will be worthy of your trust and friendship.

      Your family messed up your childhood. Don’t let them mess up your adult life as well. Try judging everyone you meet on their own merits, instead of fearing they will disappoint you like your family has.

      You sound very likeable to me! Let yourself be yourself and see what happens with the guy you like. He might not be ‘the one’ but that’s okay. The experience of getting to know him is part of the exciting journey of ‘life’.

      You have to drop those walls sooner or later. Remain guarded when it comes to your family ... but don’t be afraid to let others enter your world.

      No need to rush into intimacy. As you become more confident and comfortable in yourself, you’ll find a new ‘normal’ where you do actually trust someone enough to become intimate without fear.

      Life is exciting. Look forward to the future ... and leave the hurt of your childhood in the past. I know you can do it!

      The answer is simple, Faith. You say hi and you chat with him whenever you get the chance. It would be lame to blurt out ‘I like you’ so don’t go there. Just talk about general stuff and see how you get along.

      Sounds like you both need time to build up confidence, so just start with conversations that don’t create pressure. Later on when you feel comfortable with each other, one of you might suggest going out.

      hey, im really just a girl that really likes a guy. I like him a lot, and I know that he won't like me because well I'm me. He has been getting close with my 2 best friends and i keep getting jealous, my other friend says that that is a good sign but I just don't see it. maybe its because I grew up with a horrible family and little to no trust in me but I don't know. I want him to like me but I'm also scared at the thought of being in a relationship. I'm scared to become intimate and I have no idea why. I want to be normal and feel safe and feel like I can hug him and kiss him but the thought of that makes me scared, I think it could be because I'm scared that if I let down my walls... thye aren't gonna get build back up. And I also know that you gotta have trust in a relationship, I know that because that's my main thing for ideal relationships. And I want to trust him but there's that part that's scared to open up and possibly get hurt again... I don't honestly know what to do... but I guess I'm fine.

      Some guys like a girl to be jealous, but I don't see it as a good quality. The world is filled with people who still talk with an ex. It doesn't mean they still want to be together. It just means they are nice people who are civil and not rude.

      Why are you wasting time and effort being suspicious and thinking he is lying? That sounds like a really unhealthy relationship. If you don't trust him, don't be with him. Either accept what he says and have a nice time together, or walk away.

      Sure, you might end up with a broken heart if he ends up doing the wrong thing by you, but that's a risk we all take in every relationship ... whether our new love has an ex they talk to or not. I personally think trust is very important. I would never want to be with a partner who didn't trust me.

      Hi. I'm just gonna share this story. This guys is the man I like from the class and he is the President... One day, all my classmates are blaming me non-sense for not bringing the thing that I was assigned to bring but I sincerely, wasn't informed. So he took all the blame I received saying that "I should be the one responsible for this because I erased her name and assigned another person to bring it so it's all my fault" that's what he said but I didn't hear it. It came from my friend who also blamed me for what I did which is OK for me... Well, this guy also gave me compliments that I have a good singing voice and I'm confident. Just sharing...

      If he wants to be close, I’m guessing he likes you, Betty. But I think you did the right thing putting space between you to protect your reputation. Keep talking with him. Figure out if you actually like him ... or just like the attention.

      I was out camping with some friends and one night one of them, who I was caressing him, decides to sleep next to me when he had his stuff at a spot next to his guy friend. For awhile we were very close to each other, that at the end I decided to move away from him because I didn’t wanted my other friends to think something else. Point is what does it mean when a guy randomly decides to sleep next to you? Does that mean anything?? He hangs out with other girls but like I can’t stop thinking about that night. Like why did he end up sleeping next to me if he was gonna be more comfortable with his friend who had pillows and blankets,

      Ivy, it might be time to make clear to him you’re glad he’s a friend ... and that he’ll be able to give you advice when the time comes that you’re looking for a boyfriend. He should get the message you’re not interested.

      Tough question, Fordlove714. If he was 27 without children, I’d be thinking it’s only a matter of time until he wants kids. But he has two kids, and maybe he’s thinking two is enough. So yes, he might be genuine.

      However you obviously still have concerns. I guess the question you have to ask yourself is whether his current attention (including in the bedroom) is good for you right now. If it suits you to have his company under the current arrangements, any improvement in time and commitment will be a bonus.

      But if you want to be confident your next relationship will be lifelong, maybe he’s not the right guy for you. We both know that people change when they get to their thirties. Unfortunately there’s no way of guessing just what changes he’ll go through. Perhaps he’ll be your perfect partner long term. Are you happy to stick with him long enough to find out? If you’re prepared to try, it might end in heartbreak ... but that’s a risk we take with every relationship.

      He certainly likes you, Daisy. Whether or not he likes you romantically is hard to say. But I think you should continue enjoying his attention and see what happens as you get older.

      So I'm 45 and involved with a 27 year old. I didn't realize he was 27 when we starting spending time together, although he was aware of my age. I don't really know our status but we've been spending time together for about 2-1/2 months. He's not always consistent when we make plans. He's married but in the process of getting divorced at least that's what he's told me. I'm also married but separated. I like him but I'm trying to figure out if he's really genuine and how he feels about me. He calls me sweetie, babe, love and other pet names. He also holds my hand when we're out and is very affectionate. We text often but sometimes he doesn't text back for hours or sometimes a day or 2. He is very busy with his 2 boys, work and school so I try to keep that in mind but I still feel like I' don't have any priority. Not even sure I should expect that when he has young kids. I've tried to break things off several times but he always becomes more attentive when I do. We also started sleeping together. He has told me that he wishes that we both didn't have the ties that we have so we could be more free and less stressed but I don't really get that since he and his soon to be ex don't even live together. Don't know what to think or how to feel. Do you think he really wants to be with me and that he's being genuine?

      Why do you think he’s a liar? I think he likes you more than you like yourself. I suggest you enjoy him saying such nice things to you, and accept that you’re a nice person and he does actually like you.

      To the girl in first year of high school this coming school year, with a crush on a young man graduating from college, here’s my reply.

      You really have to accept that you’re just dreaming. There’s no way in a million years a guy that old is going to wait for you to become old enough to interest him, and date.

      You’re going into high school. Start thinking like a high schooler and wait until you’re an adult before setting your sights on older men. You won’t have much fun at school if you can’t accept your peers as your best social group. Don’t be impatient. Enjoy your youth!

      This advice might surprise you, but here's what I think you should do regarding the three guys who like you, Human.

      Because next year they'll all be going to Boy's college, I think you should just continue enjoying the company of all three of them and not make any decision to choose one and upset the other two.

      Might sound kind of crazy, but I'm thinking it makes good sense to wait for a few years and see how they all turn out as they mature a bit more. It is nearly impossible to guess how they'll change ... and one of them might be just perfect for you in a few years. Seems to me like it is worth the wait so you get the good one.

      So, I am confuzzled.

      I have three close male friends, and all of them show some signs of liking me..

      One of them straight up told me (and one of the other two) that he likes me. He will jump up and down when he first sees me in the morning, or just speed-walk to me. He talks with me a lot, but when I leave, he will supposedly not talk with the other two.

      The second one always makes jokes, and he is constantly getting distracted from important things when I'm around. He'll stop doing his school work during class time just to talk to me.

      And the last one... He is the strangest...

      He'll find ways to talk with me, and him and I talk on Discord all the time. During class time, he'll play with my hair, tease me, and wrap his arm around my shoulders.

      Thinking about it, they may actually have crushes, but if they do, they might want to tell me before the end of this year. This year is the last year that we will be able to see each other at school, because next year they'll be going to Boy's college.

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

      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
