How to Tell If a Guy is Attracted to You
People make this issue seem more complicated than it is, but it really isn't that hard to tell if a guy is attracted to you. Guys aren't as complicated as many of us have been led to believe by movies and books and our own imaginations. They are far more simple and straightforward in their thinking and behavior than we are, so they make how they feel about a girl obvious.
Watch His Gaze
The next time you see him, take notice of how often he looks at you. If he doesn't look at you at all or rarely ever does, don't kid yourself- he just isn't interested. If he's shy, a guy might not look at you all the time, or even that often, but he won't be able to never sneak a peak at you. If a guy is attracted to you, you'll notice him looking at you regularly. You may find him watching you and then quickly looking away once you notice it. That's as subtle as most guys get.
Watch the way he talks to you when you two have any dialog together. Does he keep watching you when you talk? Being interested in what you have to say and going out of his way to talk and listen to you is a clear sign that the guy is interested. This is particularly true when the subject of conversation isn't anything that guys are usually interested in.
Pay attention to his subtle body language. There are open and closed signs visible when you're dealing with anyone in person. Two examples of closed signs are crossed arms and a person turning his back to the other person. If he engages in closed activities often around you, he is not interested. If this guy is interested in you, he will instead give you open signs like leaning in toward you when you're speaking and always facing in your direction when you're around.
Think about times that you've been in close contact with the guy. Did he ever happen to touch you casually? If a guy is attracted to you, he might put a hand on your arm, pat you on the head, touch your hair or find some other little reason to touch you. It might seem like nothing when it happens, but he may have been trying to get physically closer to you because he's interested.
