how to tell if a guy likes you now

Updated on May 29, 2009

How to tell if he is really into you or not?


Figuring out how to tell if a guy likes you can be very challenging for women. On one hand we want to know if someone likes us so we can like him back but on the flip side nobody wants to experience the long paintful feeling of rejection.

This lens will outline some of the most common signs both verbal and non verbal to look for when tryign to figure out how to tell if a guy likes you.

The Five Verbal Signs that a guy likes you

Figuring how to to tell if a guy likes you can often times be tricky. At certain points the guy is a friend trying to become more, other times he is a stranger who we locked eyes with and couldn't help but feel attracted.

This section will focus on the top 5 verbal signs that will help you figure out how to tell if a guy likes you.

1.He listens attentively

Another way how to tell if a guy likes you is his conversation. If you told a guy you went on a ski trip on Friday and you talk to him on Monday and he is asking you questions about it, there is a good chance he is interested in you because he is taking the time to remember details about your life from the weekend which means you were on his mind those days.

2. He makes fun of you playfully

When a guy likes you he will often express his feelings for you indirectly by teasing you. This can do done by making witty jokes about you, being sarcastic, answering your questions with questions. You shouldn't get offended by this behavior because he is just playing hard to get and will eventually express his liking for you.

3. Does favors for you

A guy who really likes you will often do favors for you, whether giving you a ride to and from work, helping you with the dishes or randomly helping you with a task at work when nobody else will. The fact that he takes time out of his busy day to help you out when nobody else does, is a sure tell signs that he thinks about you in a positive way and wants you to think about him in the same way.

4. He mentions it to someone

One way to figure out how to tell if a guy likes you is that he will usually tell someone about you. This person could be an acquaintance, co worker or mutual friends. He gives off the impression that he Is just bring up the topic casually in conversation. But in reality he says this in hopes of the conversation being told to you so that you two can meet up and go on a date.

5.He is nervous around you

The last way how to tell if a guy likes you is he speaks to you but often stutters around you. Usually when a guy meets a woman he likes he is nervous and will occasionally stutter this is not because he is not confident but he is simply nervous around you. A few quick conversations will break the nice and have him speaking to you confidently.

Five Non Verbal Signs That A Guy Likes You

A guy could be friend of ours trying to become more but what if he is someone we just met and couldn't help but make our hearts melt when we first met him, in this case you will have to look for non verbal cues that will be your cue for you to get to know him unless he decided to move in on your first. Below are the top 5 non verbal signs that a guy likes you.

1. Holds and maintains eye contact

The first way how to tell if a guy likes you is eye contact. Matching gazes is a very important way to figure out how to tell if a guy likes you because engaging on eye contact with someone of the opposite sex is considered an invitation for conversation. However the eye contact must last at least five seconds and you guys must hold each other's gazes in order for you to tell if the guy likes you.

2. Don't Forget his friends

Pay attention to his friends. If they know he's interested in you, they might tease him subtly when you're around, Gauge their body language by studying their reactions to your presence. For example do they turn to him? are they smiling or maybe smirking to suggest they know something that you don't.

3. Look at his body language

Body Language has been proven to be 85% stronger than verbal language which makes up for only 15% of your communication. If the guy likes you, you may see that he rarely turns his back to you, often leans towards you, and also looks at you a lot.

4. Brushes up against you

Even if it is by accident, the fact that he is bushing up against you is a sign he sees you in an attractive way and wants to get physical with you. This brush up can happen both intentionally or accidentally.

5. Check the clock

To find out if a guy has been checking you out, quickly look up at the clock on the wall, then look at hm real fast. If he followed your eyes to the clock, he was straring at you and was very surprised by the sudden movement of your eyes looking at him.

How to avoid rejection and find out if he guy likes you guranteed

The guy staring across the room from you could be your future husband but how will you find out? You could go ask him and risk the pain of embaressment. Rejection is often a crippling feeling that prevents us from acting on our instincts, nobody wants to be rejected so how can you solve the rejection and make sure you are 100% certain that a guy likes you?

      Возникновение и развитие хард-рока. Формирование жанра. Ряд групп, которые пытались на основе блюз-рока создать «тяжёлый» гитарный саунд, уже во второй половине 1960-х заложили основы стиля, получившего название хард-рок. Следует помнить, что термин хард-рок, который в России в связи со сложившейся практикой используется для обозначения хэви-юморической музыки 70-х годов, является в мировой практике менее употребительным синонимом термина «метал», охватывающим также энергичную гитарную музыку 60-х годов (например, ритм-энд-блюз британского вторжения), что не вполне совпадает с общепринятыми рамками метала.

      In, my experience, a guy who likes you looks at you a lot, or tries to get your attention. A lot of times they come off as annoying because they are trying to be noticed by you. And if they can find something that will always get your attention, they do that a lot.

      I like this guy and I think he likes me, when we are sitting next to each other he will grab my hand and hold it, and when one of our friends said we would be a great couple, he let go of my hand and got real defensive. I don’t know if he likes me or not, but when I try and be alone with him, my friend won’t leave us alone, him and I will be talking and my friend will come up and interrupt our conversation and just stand there with us. How do I get her to leave

      Me and him alone, and how do I know if he likes me? When ever I look over at him, he will be looking at me, and then he will smile, a really big smile and it is really cute because his forehead goes back! But I don’t know if he likes me as just a friend or as more?

      Take notice of how many times he looks at you. Do you catch his eye every time you glance at him? If he is looking at you frequently and flashes his pearly whites when you look at him, there is definitely some interest on his part. A quick turn of his head when you've caught him looking at you is also a good sign.

      Ask him. If all else fails, let him know your feelings. After you have shared yours, ask him how he feels about you. Try not to act outwardly hurt if his feelings are not the same as yours; after all, you asked him. This is a great way to get hesitant guys to share their feelings and open up.
