How to Know if a Guy Likes You
How to Know If He Likes You
You could have sworn you noticed a twinkle in his eye when he looked your way. The moment your eyes connected, you felt your heart skip a beat. His smile made your stomach do multiple flips.
Yet if you are anything like my best friend, the guy could be wearing a blinking neon sign that he is available and you could still miss it. Some signs of attraction, only your heart can decipher.
Your brain, on the other hand, can put serious doubts in your mind about whether or not to ask the guy out. At times, the game of risking rejection is very hard to play. Heck, its hard to even find the guts to make the first move. The stakes can be incredibly high when you focus all your passionate energies on your crush and you place your heart on the line.
Is this why so many of us prefer to stay in relationships that we have outgrown? I think it is easier to stay with what you have grown used to in comparison to the unknown. Just think how comfy your pair of old worn-in slippers is, compared to those patent high heels. You get my point then. Then again, what if that guy your heart has placed a bid on is exactly what destiny has lined up for you? You will never know if you don't try.
Your Own Feelings May Tell You What He Is Feeling
To find out what is going on, monitor what you are feeling yourself, when you get a chance to converse with him or when you lock eyes. Those long eye gazes hold a lot of information if you know what you are looking for.
All it usually takes, to figure out if he likes you, is to pay close attention to what you are feeling inside. The feeling you may get is not one can be easily described; most likely you can't quite explain it, and get easily flustered if you try. Are you nervous, nauseous, uncertain of how to act around him? Well, there is a good chance that he is feeling the same way around you too. Love, like lust, does a funny thing to humans. We suddenly lose our brilliant, confident selves and easily become shy, dizzy, and clumsy. Basically, we show our crush the side we are so desperately trying to hide.
Enjoy Your Crush—It's an Adventure
That vulnerability, that uncertainty, is the best part of having a crush. It's in finding pleasure along the whole journey to a relationship. Enjoy everything you are feeling at this very moment: the uncertainty, the anxiety, and the feeling that you can't live life without him. Appreciate the fact that destiny placed another human being in your path so that you could get to know yourself, and him. Maybe, if it's in your cards, this could be the right person for you to form a loving relationship with. You will never know if you don't try. Just remember, if you savor every moment of this game, the ending will be that much sweeter...
