  • He looks for an excuse to hang out with you and may want to introduce you to his friends. This is so he can get their approval too, so don’t worry he will be proud to introduce you, and you might be able to secretly have a chat with his friends, and pick up some more signals that he likes you.
  • This is quite a simple one, he leans in towards you when you are speaking, and tries to get close. Very similar to positive body contact, he will also touch you with what might be a little bit more than a friendly attitude.
  • If you notice he is watching you, he will look away quickly. Often blushing or looking up at the ceiling or down at the floor straight away. This is a great indicator if you are still new to the relationship, and only still testing the waters.
  • He will seem a little nervous around you, and may even trip over some over some of his words when talking to you. Don’t confuse this with him being a little bit simple, it's just the initial stage of liking someone.
  • He may act a bit goofy, and try to make you laugh with jokes, or put-downs of himself, and will try to say things that will be positive to you.
  • You will see him get jealous, and seek your attention if you are with other guys, and if you hug one of them, he will probably want a hug too.
  • He will want to be there when you are celebrating important events, such as graduating from university, or even your birthday. You might notice that he arranges a cake just for you.
  • He will look at you from head to toe, this is so he has a great impression of you and enjoys appreciating your figure.
  • He will ask lots of questions about your life and take an interest in what makes you tick. Be as honest an open as you can, and try to ask some questions too, to keep his interest in you peaking.
