How to Tell if a Guy Likes You

As much as guys like to think they’re being really obvious, they’re usually not. They may claim they’ve been sending hints forever but all you’ve ever picked up is that he likes to joke around and be ridiculous, which is not only really annoying, but it can cause you to overlook a guy because you don’t think he even likes you back.

Now, not all guys are the same and that means not everyone is going to follow this list of how to tell if a guy likes you. Honestly, it can be difficult to tell if a guy is into you unless he just blurts it out – which would be GREAT. But if you’re not so lucky, then you can tell by some of these signs.

1. He Looks at You a Lot

Girl, if he likes you he’s going to be checking you out every opportunity he gets. If you catch him out of the corner of your eye staring at you often, then it could be because he likes you. Or you look hot. Either way, it’s a win.

2. He Initiates the Conversation

Is he the first one to start talking to you out of nowhere? Is he always the first to text? If so, then he probably likes you. Guys who go out of their way to strike up a conversation over and over again do so because they’re crushing hard.

3. Eye Contact

In a world where boobs are usually the first thing on a guy’s mind, if he’s making eye contact with you and they’re nowhere near wandering, he probably likes you. Eye contact is also proven to increase the more someone likes you.

4. He Talks About Himself a Lot

This isn’t because he’s full of himself. Actually, when a guy likes a girl he has a subconscious need to “prove himself”. So if a guy seems to be boasting about his skills and giving you details about who he is, he likes you.

5. He Singles You Out in a Group

If you’re all standing around talking about something and he blatantly calls you out and asks you a question in front of everyone, he probably likes you. Guys don’t just pay attention to one single girl in a group of people unless he’s got the feels for her.

6. He Takes an Interest in Your Interests

This is by far the biggest sign – especially when this interest is nothing that he would ever have tried on his own. I mean, if you really love crocheting and he suddenly walks up to you with something he attempted to crochet, he is crushing mad hard on you.

7. His Friends Smirk and Nudge Him When You’re Around

His friends are going to be the first to know he’s into you and if they’re smirking and winking at him and even so much as nudging him when you walk into the room, he totally likes you.

8. He Teases You

Teasing your crush didn’t just end in elementary school. It’s still around and if he’s making little jabs at you that aren’t offensive but more just to make you smile, then he’s into you.

9. He Makes Physical Contact

Does he go out of his way to nudge your shoulder to bump into you? Then he likes you. Basically what he’s doing is attempting to see how comfortable you are around him by breaking that physical barrier. Or he’s just trying to be annoying. Either way, he’s probably doing so because he likes you.

10. He Compliments You

Compliments are a huge, huge sign that a guy is into you and this is especially true if they’re not even related to your appearance. Sure, he can tell you you’re cute and beautiful, but if he’s calling you smart, ambitious, or even interesting, he really likes you.


Decoding a guy’s behavior to tell whether or not he likes you really isn’t an easy thing to do. Thankfully, if he does any of the above things, there’s a good chance he likes you.
