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?

      To the girl who wrote under 'I don't know what am I', there's only one thing I want to say to you. And that is, 'Talk to the guy!'

      You've just described the kind of guy most girls would love to have in their lives. So stop stalking him, and start talking with him. (Can you see how crazy that is? You are stalking the guy and avoiding him all at the same time.)

      He's obviously making a genuine effort to impress you and engage you in conversation. But he'll get sick of it sooner or later if you don't make a similar effort back. And I'm guessing you're going to kick yourself if you lose his attention and he starts giving his attention to another girl. So talk to him, and stop avoiding him. (If you talk to him you shouldn't feel the need to stalk him. You can just ask him what he's doing and who he likes.)

      If you'd broken your message into sentences it would have been easier to read, Herro. But from what I'm getting, I'm thinking you should just continue your relationship as it is right now. Sounds like you're both having fun and enjoying each other's company.

      Let the relationship develop in its own time, and don't put pressure on the guy. Just enjoy being happy, and get excited about the hugs. That should carry you through a few more months at least. Meanwhile, the guy will have time to figure out how he feels about you, and should stop sending mixed signals.

      Let's think about this, Anshu. If you blocked the guy in anger because he didn't message you for a whole day and night, he's not the guy for you. And you're not the girl for him.

      Seems to me you really need a guy who will be there for you day and night. And he needs a girl who won't get angry if he's busy for 24 hours.

      Keep looking, Anshu. There's a guy for you out there somewhere. (And while you're looking, I suggest you try and let go of whatever it is that makes you so angry.)

      Ann, if he asks you out, you'll know he's interested in dating you. If he doesn't ask you out, all you know for sure is that he likes you enough to touch you occasionally.

      But why is he touching you? Maybe he's being encouraging. Maybe you remind him of his sister. Maybe he's just a touchy kind of guy.

      Just out of interest, have you watched him when he talks with other men? Does he touch any of them? (Probably helps to consider whether or not he might be gay.)

      I really want the guy to ask you out, but I'm not convinced he's going to. It'd be nice if he proves me wrong though!

      I dont know what am I 12 days ago

      Hi, there's a guy we know each other for 5 years, we attend the same primary and secondary school, and goes to the same church as well. I feel like I'm interested in him. I find myself always stalking him on what he's doing and who he likes. We aren't that close because I tend to avoid him (I don't even know why) when he tries to talk to me. He is a really nice guy, he is caring & helpful. He laughs and teases me sometimes even though I don't feel like we are that close. I feel awkward in front of him but he looks bright and smooth in front of me. Our conversations are always very formal but he always tries to make it more interesting. I find himself sometimes stares at me and somehow interested in what am I doing. He seems to be more careful of his actions and words in front of me than other people. He treats me different from other people. I don't know whether he thinks I'm very petty or he likes me.

      On Sunday, again as I was going to the gym at 11 am. I changed my rain boots into my training shoes. I looked at the whiteboard of what he wrote down for the class exercise. Suddenly, I didn't notice he comes behind me about the group and times of each group exercise. I felt me touch my back again, I believe so.

      I actually look about 2-3 minutes short, him talking to other woman and the young woman (prob my age) ,I don't see him touching young woman back like he did to me.

      Hi brisa gil. I'm not sure if you're in a relationship with a boy and you're wondering if he's maybe interested in another girl as well ... or if you're talking about a boy who might like you but you're not yet together.

      One of the things to remember is that often a person isn't quite sure themselves if they really like someone or not. It often takes time to become confident about 'liking' and then 'approaching' someone.

      Not every relationship turns into a happy-ever-after-one. If you are already with the guy, just be true to yourself. Do what you think is right.

      Hi, you have to be more confident and stop worrying about why anyone would pick you. Personal chemistry is not a science, which is a lucky thing. Start liking yourself more, or you might accidentally talk boys out of liking you.

      I suggest you visit the two articles I listed under 'More Helpful Hints' and see if you can get some ideas there to help you.

      Have a conversation with the guy and see if he is interesting enough to keep talking with him. Your other option is to ignore him and wait until you're older. He might still like you when you're ready to get to know him, or he might have moved on to another girl by then.

      Decide for yourself if you are interested in getting to know him or not. Don't let your friends talk you into it if you're not ready. This is your life, not theirs.

      It could take a while to figure out what's going on with him, Ann. But it sure makes it sound like it's fun going to the gym. You'll get fit and healthy with regular visits to the gym. Good thing he's not working in an ice-cream parlor.

      Have you been watching how he acts with other women at the gym when your'e there?

      Also, I forget to put that on October 22 on Sunday.When gym class training is done, I changed my shoes into my rain boot, He asked me before he leaves " Hope to see you on Tuesday!" I told him "maybe" I didn't know why he was hoping to see me on Tuesday, the day he works.

      On the following day off Tuesday on October 24, I go. I didn't know or understand why he was hoping to see me that day. So I heard other trainers say to him 'happy birthday' and inside my head, I was like oh, it's his birthday... that makes sense.

      Zohre, there's not enough clues yet to know if he likes you in the way that you're hoping. However it sounds like you're making a good effort to get his attention.

      There's no rule book that says whose 'turn' it is to make the next move. I think it has a lot to do with opportunity. If you have the opportunity to suggest getting a coffee together, for instance, I think you should suggest it.

      In a romance novel the guy would probably make a move now and come forward, but we don't get to write the plot for our real life experiences. You could take a step back and see if he seeks you out because he misses you, however there's always the risk another girl might make a move.

      I'm thinking you should continue the momentum and keep in touch with him. Don't just become a 'fan' on instagram though. You've been encouraging until now. Time to become a potential girlfriend, more than just an admirer of his exhibits.

      Give him a chance to ask you out (and a chance to join you for a coffee) and see what happens. If he doesn't take the chance to spend more time with you, you'll know he's not worth worrying about.

      Hey. Plz help me. I like a boy in my university. And i showed him my interest by following on instagram and encouraging comments. And also i went to his group exhibition gallery . He noticed me. Sometimes he look at me with smile. We locked the eyes 4-5 times. I heard he introduced me to his friend when i was passing. And once i noticed his friends were looking at me...does it show he likes me? And what should i do? Isn't it his turn to come forward? Because as i said i started showing my interest by comments and... .

      Thank you.

      Ann, one of my friends is a trainer and we tease him about being a professional flirt. So I understand your confusion. The guy might be like that with everyone because he needs to keep the gym full to keep his job.

      However, he might actually like you which would be worth finding out. So here's what I suggest ...

      Ask him, 'Are you this nice with everyone?' and see what he says. What he says next should give you a clue. If he says, 'Only the nice women who I like having around' or something like that, you'll know he's just doing his job.

      If he says, 'No' and says something to encourage you, reward him with a big smile and say, 'Well that's good. Because I wouldn't want a man to flirt with me if his heart wasn't in it.'

      That gives him the kind of message that says 'Ask me out if you like me' without you looking (or feeling) like a fool. If he doesn't want to ask you out, he'll probably back off a bit. But you'll look confident and smart, without looking foolish.

      Sounds kind of romantic, 'Just plain lost'. If the guy is careful and calm around you, that's a good thing, isn't it?

      I'm guessing he has a boss or a supervisor at work who watches him either on the floor (or via camera from an office) and he's not wanting to appear irresponsible. So if he made an excuse to follow you, that was a good gesture. Got to give him credit for that.

      I don't think he's sending 'mixed signals'. I think he's doing his best around you, but 'life' gets in the way in even the best romances. So why don't you suggest getting lunch together sometime? Spend some time together away from the pressures of being in the workplace and see what happens.

      Don't forget, he's probably looking for clues from you just as you're looking for them from him. So you don't want to be sending mixed messages either. Just suggest lunch.

      Molly, there's all kinds of reasons why someone might not text back as quickly as you'd like. Life gets busy and things can get in the way.

      It has been a couple of days now so hopefully you've heard from him by now. If not, that's not the end of the world. You'll probably get another chance to try again in a few weeks or months time.

      Just do things differently next time. Instead of concentrating on the whole 'like me' question, just get to know the guy. If you get to know him better and let him get to know you, you'll soon enough figure out if you like each other or not.

      I go to gym class training for about a year now. And there's a guy who is a trainer, but I'm not sure if he is being nice to me or he likes me. Whenever I enter the gym, he called my name and same goes as when I or he is leaving. He also raised his eyebrow at me and smile sometimes. When I asked him about what is KB clean and press (example) and he leans towards me and used his hand to touch back of my arm or my back to show it to me. He encouraged me to keep going even I take a bit of break. He sometimes teases me when I asked him to pass me form roller, and he makes fun of me by to see if I can get it (which I can't cuz i'm short). Usually, a guy never compliments me about etc, but about 3 weeks ago when I got a new training shoe; he compliments "it's that a new shoe? It looks good on you" I believe that the 2nd times, he tried to ask me what I'm doing on the weekend.

      I'm afraid to ask him if he likes me that if he doesn't then I make myself look like a fool.

      Just plain lost 3 weeks ago

      Okay so I bumped into this guy I thought I lost feelings for since Highschool. I remember he would walk by my bench at school in the morning and whenever I look up, I always somehow lock eyes with him. In class, we’d talk most times, and when I sing while working on an assignment, he would join in. So I bumped into him just yesterday, at his workplace. I had no clue he worked there, so me and my friend just decided to browse their selections. I mean he didn’t acknowledge me when I walked in, but I guess it’s cause I was wearing a hat. It wasn’t till I walked past the register to the other side of the store, that I guess he recognized me. He still didn’t say a word the whole time I was their, but he did I guess make an excuse to go to the back of the store in the area I just walked in. I also remember this time i was working at Macy’s, I was just finishing my tasks, and was leaving the elevator. As soon as the doors opened our eyes met, and he had this toothy grin. When I was going on my lunch, I was going down the escalator and he was coming down it. And he just got off the elevator awhile ago. We made small chat, but it’s like whenever he’s around me he goes form his loud cheery self to a whole other person around me. He’s like more careful and calm when near me and is always finding ways to make small chat. I know most would say it’s obvious, but I’m like getting mixed signals all the time.

      If the guy you like is really studious, that's a good thing. He's bound to be successful and is obviously working towards his goal.

      There's a couple of links at the bottom of this article that lead to other things I've written. You might get some good ideas from them. Just scroll up and take a look.

      But try not to distract the guy too much. lol.

      Daniel Long 4 weeks ago from All Over

      What's wrong with you, Amy? Read your message again and take note of all the positive things the guy has done to try and win you over. How can you doubt that he likes you?

      He's a popular guy so why would he like someone like you? That's easy. He obviously thinks you're fascinating ... and he likes your taste in cars.

      Okay, so if he has a girlfriend he should break up with her before you start dating him. (You don't want to be the other woman. Gets too messy.) But stop worrying about 'prettier girls'. I'm willing to bet you're pretty but just too insecure to know it. And, really, you're probably underestimating the poor guy. Do you really think he's so shallow he only cares about looks? I'm guessing he wants more than just 'pretty' in a girl. Sounds like you suit him just fine.

      I think it is time you asked for a look at his car. See what's different and what's the same as in yours. Is it in better condition? Nicer seat covers? All that kind of stuff. Get him to take you for a drive so you can see if it sounds the same. Go on, you could spend at least a little time together and see how comfortable you feel in his company.

      hmm I'm kind of confused with this one guy in my school. He's my friend but we're not that close tho and we had like a same circle of friends. My friends told me that he likes me but im not sure about it. He tries to do the things that i like, for example this one time i posted that "red is my favourite colour" and guess what he wore red the next day and he came all the way to my class that morning and he playfully get mad at me because of the parking space. He's always around...it like he's at all the place I'm at...he always ask my friends where I'm at. He even changed his car to have a same car as me. Everytime i hang out with my friends he always ALWAYS makes an effort to join. He would constantly ask my friend if I'm still there and when I went to my friend's house the other day he came all the way there and the first thing he asked was "wheres Amy?". He constantly doing all these and all of my friends notice it and they kept on telling me that he likes me but im still not sure about it because we never spent time together, we never get to know each other and he's a popular guy so why would he like someone like me? he literally hang out with prettier girls like most of the time. Besides he's close to this one girl but im not sure if thats his gf or what...but if thats his gf then why does he doing all these thing for me? I don't know what to do? what do you think i should do? oh please help hahaa

      Sophie, why aren't you the one to start a conversation? If he finds a way to make you smile and laugh, reward his efforts by making the effort to chat for a while.

      It takes two to develop a relationship. You can either stay strangers, or try to get to know him. I think you should try to get to know him. Doesn't have to be a big flirtation, just a little conversation. :)

      Hello Happy. It sounds to me like the guy at your work likes you back. He doesn't sound creepy or threatening so I think you should try to overcome your social anxiety and ease yourself into talking with him.

      Yes, you might lose him if he gets no response from you when he is trying hard to get your attention. So it is worth the effort of overcoming your nervousness to at least smile at him. The next time try talking.

      An easy question to start with is 'What do you do when you're not at work?' Then, whatever he says, ask another question. Just take your time. No rush. You can end the conversation by saying 'That sounds good' or 'that sounds like fun' or something like that. Nod and smile and walk away.

      Who knows, maybe he'll invite you to join him doing whatever the activity is. Good luck.

      Yes, Bree, it sounds like he likes you. But he's only 13 so I'm not sure what you're expecting from the guy. And you're only 13 so I don't think you should be stressing. If neither of you are allowed to date until you are 16 (which sounds fair) then all you should be expecting is to be friends.

      Lots of growth and changes yet to come. Wait and see how you both feel about each other when you're 16. Meanwhile, just allow yourself (and him) to be the kids you are. Have fun without the pressure of any kind of romance. If you've been having good clean fun together since you were 13, it will much more interesting if things change when you're older.

      Happy 5 weeks ago

      Hey there is this guy at my work that I like but I don't know if he likes me back. I always catch him staring at me and when I do he quickly looks away and starts turning red, he also says hi and bye to me a numerous amount of times and he says my full name a lot too, he also compliments me by saying that another guy in the workplace thinks that I am beautiful and cute and pretty and whenever he does the guys tell him to leave them alone and that they never said that. He also laughs at my clumsiness in a good way and tries to start a conversation with me but the thing is, I have social anxiety so I'm not really that great when it comes to talking and trying to start a conversation like today he stood really close to me and it was awkward because I think he wanted me to say something but I started getting nervous and shaking and couldn't think of anything to say. Also I think he knows that I like him because he has given me little signs like he's waved at me and made a heart shape out of his hands and shown it to me and I got a heart painted on my face once and one of his friends came up to me and asked if I got the heart for (crushes name)? And I looked at him and he smiled. I'm really confused and I don't know what to do, I feel like my social anxiety gets in the way of things and if I don't try anything soon then I might lose him for someone else. What should I do and what do you think?

      Bree 5 weeks ago

      My name is Bree and I like a guy named Peter. I want him to like me but I don't know if he does because he shows some of these signs bit not all of them. We are both 13 and neither of us can date anyone till we are 16. He doesn't like my Nick which is Bree so he calls me breeona even though it isn't actually a nickname. We are friends but I usually start our conversation and he usually ends them. He is very busy and lives on a farm so I see.why he is so busy. Please reply to this if you can and tell me what you think and yes if you need me to I can give you a few more details. Oh and one other thing. He only really seems to be interested in our conversation when I'm around other boys. For example when my mom and her friend Amy told me that I had to marry Amy's son I told Peter and he asked me if I knew him and then before I got.a chance to reply he said he didn't like it. So again please help me tell if he really likes me

      Doyana, wise up. If he has a girlfriend, he doesn't love you. If he loved you, he'd be quick to dump the other girl and spend all his time with you.

      He's not the kind of man you'd ever want to have as a boyfriend. If he's told you he loves you when he has another girlfriend, he'd just do the same to you with another girl.

      Don't waste your time with such a loser. Stop obsessing about him and go find a better guy. You need someone who doesn't lie to you and who will really love you.

      Hilda, if being with the guy means spending time and laughing and getting to know each other better, do it.

      But if him wanting to 'be with' you is some kind of sexual pressure, dump him. He ought to be working hard to impress you and win your heart at this early stage if he wants you to be his girlfriend, not putting pressure on you.

      You're welcome. By the way, don't waste tears on this failed relationship. Walk away holding your head high, and be confident that your next relationship will be a much better one. You deserve a real man who loves you and values you. It might take a while to cross paths with him, but it will be worth the wait!

      I'm not surprised you're confused. You thought you were in a real relationship, but turns out you're not.

      I suspect you already know what you are to him, and what he wants from you. Looks to me that you're the girl he has on the side, and all he wants from you is sex.

      Let me help eliminate your confusion. He's using you and being disrespectful ... so he's really not worthy of your love. Dump him and find a man who treats you much better. Unless a man is willing to be by your side all day every day, he doesn't deserve to be in your bed. Yet this guy is only 'your man' when you're having sex. Leave that loser behind you and find a man who really loves you. I don't believe anyone can love someone they don't respect, and I don't believe you respect him when he's been treating you as just a tool for sex.

      Learn from this bad experience, and expect much more from your future guy. You need to find a man who loves and respects you. That's the kind of man who'll make you really happy!

      Ok me and this guy are friends, he started asking me questions, he still looks me in my eyes and up and down. He told me he had a girlfriend and asked if i had a boyfriend which i don't. Well we slept together, he used to text me first thing in the morning and late at night. Now i just get a text in the mud day and sometimes at night. Yet when he are having sex he calls himself my man but he is always looking at other women. Will i did fall for him already and although he does some one these things i am confused what am i to him and what does he want from me ? I thought he was unhappy with his girl and they were going to break up thats why i slept with him the first time, he calls me babe and is very sweet to me. I am confused cause i am in love with this man.

      Are you saying you have spoken to this man on Skype, Richel? Have you spoken face to face so you know what he really looks like? Or have you just texted each other and maybe heard his voice?

      It seems strange if he doesn't use your name and I understand why you are suspicious. It is very easy for people to be dishonest on the internet. How do you know if he really is divorced, and if he really is who he says? Sadly, he might have a family at home and be communicating with you from his office, unknown to them.

      If he is asking you for naked pictures of yourself, that indicates trouble. You never know what he might do with the photos. Please protect yourself from trouble and embarrassment. You are being honest with him, but I fear he is not being honest with you.

      You don't need help, Annie. You just need confidence to give the guy a chance. Sounds like it could be the start of a really nice romantic relationship. Give the guy credit for being a gentleman. I think you should still see him when he goes to uni.

      @Zynadv, if you have no feelings at all for the guy now, there's no point in getting involved with him. Yes, it sounds like he likes you but he's left it too late.

      @V, it sure sounds like your guy likes you but you're saying you don't have feelings for him anymore. So he's just another guy who waited too long before showing any interest in a girl who might have been a good match. Other guys will come along. You need a guy who doesn't waste time before showing you he's interested.

      @NasaKen, you've had some fun with the guy and it must have been nice to get compliments and be the center of attention. But it doesn't sound like you're headed for a real future with him. Of course, I might be wrong. So let me know how it turns out!

      I met a guy recently and we got talking, after that he added me or friend requested me on apps/social media. He then popped up and we started talking. I dropped hints that I would be at a party near his and he asked to meet. We talked a lot and he talked of past relationships and what he does and doesn't like etc. He then asked if I was free to see him? We spent the next day together and he kept finding more things we can do so the day wouldn't end and he wanted to eat out in my home town in a very public restaurant and commented that he thought more people would be out. He told his friends he was out with me. Now this is where I'm confused, he seems quite confident, he has told me he is catholic. I am used to past dates holding hands being touchy although it may have just been the younger age? But he didn't try to hold my hand, he sat close when we watched movies and gave me a little cuddle and then gave me a kiss goodbye and asked if I was free later in the week. He goes to university in two weeks but it's only an hour away and has mentioned me coming to see him and that he will be back lots? I'll be honest and say I am very interested, I may be holding back as I've been hurt in the past and I feel like we are on a time limit because of his going away and scared he may say it's not worth it when he's a Uni! Help I'm very confused

      I stayed at a place for about 2.5 months for study if course.... It was my fist time going abroad..... We(12 students from my class) stayed at an old family palace....we were later joined byany other kids we never knew before.... And among the new kids there is this handsome guy.... He is 18 and he is some kind of prodigy or something.... Everyone fell head over heels for him.... I was okay at first... So determine to win over the weak feminine side and I have never trusted guys before.... (at that same time a guy from my country, a friend, kept pestering me to be his girlfriend but I refused cuz I don't trust even if my friends day that he is nice)....i wasn't bad myself....my history skills was also superb and I could answer so many of the questions..... He took notice of me I think from that first day of class.... We all were awkward with one another..... And one day.... He went to the girls apartment.....he came here as the assistant of our guardian here.... Apparently he came here to ask whether we all have swim suits or not..... That day I was planning my draft for my novel...he walked in and sak the girls I was about to wipe it out... Then he just came right in and read everything.... One of the other guy said that my story is a SEX STORY!!!! I was so furious.... I could read anything.... But the handsome guy defended me and I received an apology.... I felt so humiliated .....he read it..... And the other thing.. Mks kept using it to embarrass me in front of the other professors....i would try avoid him but he kept coming and the style would be.... Walking back and forth in front of me looking at the sky and whistling or humming... Then he would turn to me and says did I finish my chapter yet....he always compliment me... That time I was with another girl in a room... He just went back from going out and when he saw me.... He just sit and stare at my conversation with the other girl..... The he said that I dressed so neatly....he says I looked....i always look pretty... (the other girl Wasnr that happy.... She actually warn me to not think to high or dream to much).... He then the other time try to compliment my style...i was just wearing a plain button up shirt....he said that the way I braid my hair I looked like Pocahontas..... And at dinner tables.... At first we were so far away.... I always sit at the head table....each day he got as close as he could until he was the first one to run to go near the head table.. I didn't like him... I like a staff at that old family palace apartment..... I kept sulking and said that I was telling well... He told that he isn't well too to everyone.... I told them I couldn't play games... He said he couldn't.... Then I thought maybe I should and I said I play but he finally play too.... Finally before he left he kept ghost pranking me...i never visited that room but that day I need to print some stuff... Everyone was there.... And he just try to prank me.... He previously told everyone to not disturb him he have a lot of stuff to do (I wasnt there and one of the guys told me about it) he locked himself in a room.... After I went in he went out to prank...someone says... Is this your homework? Me and him.... We were so embarrassed....flirtation? I don't know how to describe it... He pranked me again when I went to that room once again to get papers.... Then finally that night he walked into my apartment and asked to come in my room.... It was his last day there.... Luckily another guy and girl was in my room otherwise it would be against the rule to have a girl and guy in the same rule... He kept walking around my room (mind u my bra and underwear that were just delivered from laundry were on the bed...embarrassing....) he started to do weird things and ask me to teach him the derogatory word in my language(wasnt extreme... Just one word) he mimicked my actions that he found weird and hilarious..... The last night before he went....he stole my heart... Tell me..... What does this mean? I dont understand!!!!

      I have this close friend that I liked before but not anymore and recently he has been acting weird. He started playing the games I am addicted to. He started having an interest in Kpop (IKR. He's a guy.) and started acting like one of my favorite idols. He started buying food for me. And he's becoming touchy: like holding my hand, playfully poking me, dragging my bag around when crossing the street, and acting sweet that his friends find it weird as well. Am I assuming that he likes me since he hasn't said anything and that sometimes he acts like he doesn't care about me at all?

      So I confessed to this guy before but he didn't do or say anything regarding the matter so I took it as a sign of rejection and moved on. However, recently we've been hanging out a lot and I consider him as one of my closest friends already. No feelings whatsoever anymore. And he started doing things that makes me think that he might like me. When I read this, I ticked off all 50 items on the list. I already promised myself I won't feel anything since I already have someone else I like but he is just so confusing. I'm scared of asking him since we both don't like confrontations. I don't know what to do. :(

      My answer to you, Crybaby202, is pretty simple. Talk to the guy. Get to know him. See what happens. Just make conversation and give the guy a chance to let you know if he really likes you. Go on, you can do it. Just talk to him.

      If I was you, Noelle, I'd probably tell him he can either keep dreaming about the super hot girl or decide to go out with someone he has a real chance with, like you. But it is his decision. Then, if there's no sign of him showing a greater interest in you, I think you should start dating someone else. Maybe he needs a bit of competition to appreciate you. Good luck.

      Hi Caroline. Sooner or later the guy will find out his girlfriend is cheating on him but you probably don't want to be the one who tells him. I think you should let him work out his own problems and then see if he seeks you out. Meanwhile, look around at the guys available. You might find one of them is just as nice and just as interesting if you take the time to get to know him.

      It is great that you've been getting help from the guy you like. Stay friends with him if you can, but don't waste time waiting for the guy to be your partner. Keep looking in case Mr Right is somewhere nearby and waiting for a chance to talk to you, and I hope everything turns out great for you.

      Hello Jannie. Try to think of a question you can ask him to get a conversation started. It might be something really simple to start with, like 'Gee it is cold today, isn't it?' Even if it is not a question that invites a long answer, by saying something longer than just 'hi', you're inviting him to talk to you more. And it should get easier for you to say more each time you see him.

      But please remember, Jannie, you've never talked to this guy so you can't really love him yet. You just like him heaps and want to get to know him better. So don't be too disappointed if things don't work out between you. Lots of people waste too much energy feeling 'heart broken' about someone they never even knew. Please don't be one of them. Put it all in perspective, and enjoy the process of trying to get to know him better. Good luck!

      Hey, gaming guy. That's really confusing. I can't figure out if you're wishing the first girl would text or email you ... or the second. And who is it that you want to shake, but keep as a friend? The girl who lives hundreds of miles away and you're never likely to meet? Or do they both fit that description?

      Either way, it doesn't sound like any action you take is likely to make much difference in your real world. Sounds to me you're all in game chat, so it isn't like you're going to get your face slapped. You'd have to pack up and travel across the country (or the world) to have that happen. So just do whatever you feel is appropriate.

      Ashley, it sounds to me like David likes you. I suggest you move your conversation topics to things away from work. That's a good start. Ask him something like, "What do you do when you're not at work?" Maybe he has a particular sport or hobby he'll mention.

      There's every possibility he's going to ask the same question back to you, so be ready. Maybe you could say, "I really like going to the movies, but I don't have anyone to go with and it's not much fun going by myself." Or something else you like to do, that would be more fun for two. If you're lucky, he'll offer to go with you! Good luck.

      There is this guy who met my eyes only a few times. I don't know my feelings towards him. Also, he is very shy and secretive and nobody knows anything personal about him.

      Does he like me?

    • profile image

      Ashley 6 months ago

      There's this guy I like at work, David, but it's hard to tell if he likes me back. He works in a different department than me, so I don't get to see him too often but on the rare occasion we work together he's always really nice and funny. He often compliments me, when I style my hair different, my shoes, tights, perfume etc. and he used to hug me whenever he saw me. I tried not to read into it too much because I wasn't sure if he acted the same around other girls.

      Another guy I work with, whose name happens to be Daniel, claims that he think David likes me as well citing that he's nicer to me than the other girls at work. And one time I was sad at work David was really sweet and comforting and Daniel happened to overhear all or part of the conversation and told me he never heard David be that sincere before. But I didn't know if it was just because he's never seen David have to deal with a crying girl before or if there was actually something there.

      But as much as I like David, I just don't know how he feels about me and I don't want things to get awkward if he doesn't like me back, because even still just being close to him makes me happy and I just want to spend more time with him, but I'm too awkward to ask for his number or to hang out outside of work.

      Do you have any advice you could give, either to advance in a romantic relationship or even just a friendship? I've been reading a lot of your posts here and there's a lot I think falls into the category of hum possibly liking me, I'm just afraid I'm reading into it too much.

      I don't know, and neither do you 6 months ago

      So, first off, I am a guy. Secondly, I play many games that have in game chat. Thirdly, I am apparently really feeling.

      Once upon a time I knew a friend of a friend, and we met over a game chat.

      Then she brought a friend onto the game, who I am 97% certain is smitten with my empathetic and goofy character.

      She lives like, hundreds of miles away, and the chances of us meeting are super slim.

      I don't know how exactly to remove someone from chasing you and keeping a friendship.

      This girl was the reason (I believe) that the first girl stopped liking me, (everything I am saying here has been examined by myself and I am pretty thorough :P) and I have no idea what to do other then ride the wave until some event occurs, rocking the world I know.

      She can't text or email me, (or anyone, her parents have sorta strict boundaries), and so the in game chat is the only place we meet.

      If anyone can help, great, if anyone can't, better, if life gives you turkeys..... I can't help you XD

      Serina, bask in the glory of being called the sweetest and cutest person ever. That's quite an achievement at your age, don't you think? One day you'll be telling your grandkids about it when they're in a knot about hormones and being young. Stop stressing and just enjoy the moment.

      I'm willing to bet this guy won't be the guy you have grandkids with, but it does sound like he likes you. So just talk to him and take your time figuring it all out. You've got a lot of years of all this fun ahead of you with all kinds of guys, but you're off to an interesting start. Enjoy.

But since then, Our texting is very rare. It's one sentence st a time, I'll ask a question and so forth.

      So ive met this guy... he's in matric and im only in grade 7... ee met at camp where he asked for my number, and we've been texting eachother everyday for just over a month now. He calls me 'sweetie' and 'cutie' because apparently im the 'sweetest and cutest person ever'... i saw he's been doing like almost all of these things, but I feel like its just because he is such a nice guy and he acts like that around everyone... I dont know if i like him or not, and i really dont know what im feeling but i tend to think about him everyday... please help! Does he like me?? He has asked if i like anyone outside of school (he is in a different school) was he trying to see if i like him!?! Please reply, i am so confused!!

      Thank you so much. The guy I like does more than half of these and I figured out today that he used to like me and I was really happy but I did not say anything and his friends always are talking about us being a couple. :) :)

      There is this boy, he's really nice, super cute, and sooo funny. We've been flirting with each other and he even skips classes to hang out with me. He was being really affectionate the other day, but today he's been avoiding talking to me. What should I do?

      Mya, it is really easy to tell a guy you like him. 'You're nice. I like you.' Or 'you're funny. I like you.' Not so hard if you just tell him you like him. You're not promising to marry him and have his children. Geez. If you want to say it, just do it.

      Or maybe you're struggling with it because deep down you're not sure you really like him enough to broadcast it. If you're not sure, just enjoy the fun of liking him without making a big deal out of it. I'm sure you'll figure out what's best for you. :)
