You’ve started talking to a guy you really like. You love chatting to them, but you’re not sure if they feel the same way about you. But how do you know if he likes you?
It can be very frustrating when you don’t know if he is actually interested, but when a guy likes you, it is obvious – if you know what signs to look out for. Here are 5 signs that show he likes you.
1. He initiates the conversation
If he sees you are online, he messages you to say hi. If you haven’t spoken for a few days, he sends you a text to ask how your day is going. If he sees a cute or funny video, he will send it to you. If he is in the same room as you, he will always walk over and start chatting.
If a guy likes you, he will go out of his way to make sure you are in regular contact. You don’t have to start all of the conversations, and he will clearly enjoy talking to you; whenever you chat the conversation lasts for hours, and he never ignores your messages for hours (unless he has a valid excuse, like being at work or spending time with family).
2. He is consistent
If a man genuinely likes you, he won’t drop off the radar for days (or weeks) at a time. If he is busy, he will tell you so that you don’t wonder why he isn’t talking to you. He wouldn’t want to upset you, and he certainly doesn’t want you to think he isn’t interested in you!
If he does stop speaking to you, and then reappears in your life with an excuse, it is normally a sign that he isn’t interested. After all, no-one is too busy to send a quick text to explain that they will be busy for a while.
3. His body language reveals his feelings
Even if a guy doesn’t want you to know that he likes you, his body language will give him away. There are certain things that we do (without even realizing) when we like someone. One example is mimicking the other person’s movements; if you tuck your hair behind your ear and you notice that his hands move up to his face too, then he might like you.
His feet are another indicator of his feelings; if they are pointing directly towards you this is a sign that he likes you. Of course, adjusting his appearance is another – if you seem him smoothing his hair or straightening his tie, he probably likes you!
4. He compliments you
It may be obvious, but if a man likes you, he will compliment you. He may not shower you with compliments, but he will definitely sneak compliments into your conversation. For instance, he might tell you that you have a great fashion sense, or he may tell you he likes your hairstyle. It could be even smaller; he might just say he likes how straightforward you are.
5. He remembers the little things
A man who likes you will always listen to what you say and remember the details – at least at the beginning! When anyone likes someone, they will want to learn more about who they are as a person. If a man likes you, he will remember the stories you tell him, and he will ask questions when you tell them. This shows he is interested in you and your life.
