How To Tell If He Likes You

How can you tell if a guy likes you? This is a question frequently asked by many girls and women who are interested in dating a guy they like very much. It is a natural thing that members of the opposite sex get attracted to one another, but there may be a time when it isn’t easy to tell the kind of feelings a guy has for you. That's when you will definitely look for signs or things that show the person has warm feelings for you.

Many women ask the question 'how to tell if a guy likes you?' but who can provide the right answers for them? I believe it is only the girl who can provide the answer to this question because she is most interested in the situation. What the girl has to do is to study the behavior and actions of the guy in order for her to tell if he really likes her

I already covered in another article the body language signs of men that can give you a clue on whether they like you or not but here's some short-cut signs that could suggest a guy likes you. How do you tell if he likes you? How do you know if he is into you or not? Here's my top 9 signs that tell a guy likes you.


Signs To Know If A Guy Likes You

These signs are easy to spot. They particularly apply to young guys.

1. He is obsessed with touching you

If a guy touches you as often as he can, there's a high likelihood of him being very interested in you. If he likes you it will be evident from his obsession with touching you. Maybe your smooth body impresses him and he is enjoying and drawing some comfort from it.

2. He showers you with unexpected expensive gifts

In some cultures, this is the number one sign that a guy who likes you will show. When you see him buy you lovely and expensive unexpected gifts, it shows he cares for you and that he could be interested in entering a relationship with you. He won't buy gifts for everyone. Gifts and more so expensive ones are meant for individuals and people who matter to you the most. So when you see a guy shower with you with many unexpected expensive gifts, know that you occupy a special place in his heart.

3. You will get to know his feelings for you from his close friends

One sure way of telling whether a guy likes you or not is through his friends. Particularly those who are very close to him. If he likes you he will probably have told them about you. If his friends talk of how him and you are going together he definitely likes you.


4. He teases you and not other girls

Does he tease you whenever he gets the opportunity? If yes he likes you. And more so if he rarely teases other girls. Teasing you is an opportunity to get close to you and interact without having to openly admit he likes you.

A shy guy who lacks the confidence to tell You how he feels is likely to tease you and play light-hearted games. It is his way of getting your attention.

5. He will have a massive smile on his face.

There is a difference between the slightest of smiles and a beaming grin. You can tell the difference just by having a look at a person’s face. A guy who likes you will most likely have a massive smile on his face whenever you are with him. The smile will no doubt give an indication of his interest and happiness with you. A man who doesn’t like you would rarely put a never ending massive smile on his face.

6. He will ask questions about your personal life

Asking questions about personal life is also another indication that a man is interested in having a relationship with you. Why should he bother asking questions about your private life when he isn’t interested in you? He will rarely do that but if he does he is likely to be into you and having an interest in you. Some of the questions a guy may ask about your personal life include;

  • Are you in a relationship?
  • Where do you live?
  • What are your hobbies and interests?
  • Where is your family and do you live with them?

If a guy asks you the above questions and many others, there is a high possibility that he is interested in you for a relationship or marriage. Ask yourself why he should ask a question like 'are you in a relationship?' It’s definitely for a purpose. So whenever a guy enquires about your personal life don’t take it lightly because he means something.

7. He will try to impress you

If a guy likes you he will do everything he can to impress you in order to make you interested in him. He will be out to convince you that he is the perfect and most suitable man for you basedi on his achievements in life. He may boast of having graduated with first class degree from a reputable university or college. He may boast of having an A-list job at a reputable company or owning a car few others can afford. The list of things he can boast of having is endless but the main thing is that they are all aimed at convincing you to enter into a relationship with him.

8. He will ask you to go out with him

Asking you out or inviting you to his house is a clear indication that a guy likes you. Ask yourself, why would he ask you out or invite you to his place? Obviously for the reason of being interested in you. Inviting you to his family home is obviously a massive sign that he likes you. He might even be planning to propose to you.

9. Frequent texts, emails or phone calls

If a guy is fond of calling you frequently (or too many times in a day or week) then know that he is up to something. Normal calls between people are made once in a while when there is something to be discussed but this isn’t so if a guy has strong feelings for you. He will most likely call you many times a day to ask how you are doing and what you are up to, and that is a sign and indication that he likes you.
