Does he really like you, or is he just a flirt? Chances are that if you’re reading this, you already suspect he may like you. And if you’ve gotten this far, you’re probably right.
But the dating game can be tough to navigate, and as women, we need to know how to separate the sweethearts from the players. But don’t worry—the dudes who genuinely like you will give off certain clues, and we’re here to help you pick up on those little cues.
Here’s how to tell if a guy likes you as more than just a friend:
If he likes to keep in touch with you regularly, or insists on sending you random messages throughout the day — this undeniably means he’s thinking about you. And if you’re on his mind a lot, chances are he likes you. Don’t forget that he also wants to make sure that he’s on your mind (and he won’t be afraid to remind you of him every chance he gets).
Sometimes, our faces speak for us (my friends always know when I’m pissed, for example). If he gives you—and only you—a certain adorable gaze, take this as more than a hint. When a guy likes you, you’ll see it in his eyes. It’ll be tough for him to hide. So, what does this particular gaze look like? Well, it will look like his eyes are literally smiling at you. It’s a look that says, “damn, this is the woman of my dreams”.
I’m not talking about flirty things, here. I’m talking about random, crazy things. If you’re hanging out, and you two spontaneously decide you want to hangout in the pouring rain together for hours, this is a sign that his affection for you outweighs his normal sense. Even if he’s uncomfortable, he’s happy to be with you.
Since you’re on his mind often, he’ll accidentally let your name slip a few times in conversation with others. More than likely, his friends will start to smirk whenever they’re around you—because they’ve already figured out his big secret. Yep, they know what’s up. His friends may not tell you about it directly, but they may try to drop subtle hints to let you know.
Does he seem extremely interested in your quirks? Does he ask you more about why you prefer mint ice cream to chocolate? Well, don’t be afraid to elaborate, because this means he’s genuinely interested! When a guy makes an effort to get to know you, if he uses any excuse to talk to you and ask you questions, this is a sign of authentic care. If you’re home sick, he’ll be concerned and will check in to make sure you’re OK.
