1. Eye Contact Eye Contact Eye Contact!
Eye contact is one of the most important things to notice about a guy . Many guys will try to secretly look at you when he thinks you’re not watching – so if you catch him looking away when you glance over at him, that’s a good sign! More assured and confident guys will actually make and hold eye contact. It’s true.
If you want to “test out” whether he’s attracted to you, try this: Look over his face for around 3 to 4 seconds (don’t make it awkward and hold it too long!) and then look away. After a second, look back at him – if he holds eye contact with you he’s definitely interested. If he glances towards your mouth he’s really interested. However, if he breaks eye contact and looks away, he’s probably not into you.
2. Listen Carefully To Him When He’s Talking To You
So what do most guys do when they like a girl? What do most of them talk about?
It’s pretty simple actually – they talk about themselves. Lots of guys feel like they have to prove themselves to a woman they’re interested in, so they’ll start bragging (or humblebragging) about themselves during conversation.
One good way to see just how interested he is in you is to watch his body language during conversation. Try saying something softly. Does he lean in to hear you? Great! Does he stay closer to you after leaning in, or does he retreat away from you?
Keeping an eye on how he positions himself during conversation will help reveal how interested he is in being with you.
3. Watch How He Feels About Body Contact
Touching someone else and being touched is a super important way of gauging how interested and how intimate he wants to be with you – and a great way to figure out how he feels is to watch how he reacts to touching you and being touched by you.
Guys who are interested will generally find excuses to touch you – like touching your hand when he laughs, or brushing your leg with his without moving it away, or even giving you hugs for the flimsiest of reasons.
Next, watch what happens when you touch him. If you brush your hand gently against his neck or hold his arm gently with your hand – does he flinch away? Does he move his hand away from yours if you touch him? Or does he move to stay in further body contact with you?
4. Does He Treat You Differently?
When a guy is interested in you, he might start behaving differently towards you, especially in a group. If he starts acting “protective” towards you, like shifting himself closer to you in any seating arrangement, or putting his arm around the back of your chair, it’s a sign that he’s interested.
One interesting tactic that some guys take is to start flirting with other girls when they’re actually interested in you. A guy will do this when he wants to see your reaction to him flirting with other women – so that he can tell whether you like him .
It’s pretty easy to spot this tactic though – watch him when he’s flirting with another girl. If he keeps trying to sneak peeks at you to check your response, you can be reasonably confident that he’s doing it to get a reaction out of you.
5. Does He Act Interested In Things You’re Interested In?
especially if he’s never acted interested in them before!
Look for him to start acting interested in things like a band that you’re into or a tv show you like. If he starts talking about how a band you like is in town in the near future – he’s trying to give you something that you like! He’s interested in you!
Especially keep an eye out if something you brought to his attention becomes his favorite thing. Like, let’s say you told him to watch a tv show because you love it. If it becomes his new favorite thing, chances are he’s interested in you.
6. Does He Look Nervous Around You?
Does he nervously laugh whenever you’re near? Does he get sweaty palms when you’re together? How about – does he take deep breaths? Does he fidget? Does he look away really fast when you see that he’s watching you?
All of those are strong signs that he’s attracted to you.
Guys aren’t nervous around women they aren’t interested in (most of the time), so if he’s nervous around you, that’s a good thing. It means he’s probably worried about making a good impression on you to get you attracted to him as well.
7. Watch His Friends Closely!
If he’s interested in you, he might have told his friends. Or, they might have guessed it from him in the first place.
Whatever the reason – when you’re around him and his friends, watch his friends closely. If they start making subtle jokes and making fun of him, and the thrust is that he’s interested in you – then he probably likes you!
Watch them when you’re with him and his friends. Do they smile when they see you? Do they smirk at him when you walk into the room – like they know something you don’t?
One thing to avoid here – watch out if one of his friends tells you he likes you when you haven’t gotten that vibe from him at all. His friend might be looking out for himself – to your detriment!
8. Watch His Actions – Does He Copy You?
A very good subconscious sign to look for is if he’s mirroring your actions back at you. This is often an unconscious tell that people have that they’re interested in someone – he won’t even know he’s doing it.
If you make a gesture, and then notice he makes the same gesture soon after, it means he’s probably interested in you. A great way to let him know you’re interested too (subtly) is to copy his actions as well! Touch your face after he touches his, smooth your hair when he smooths his, and so on.
This one is kind of obvious – but if he follows you around, he wants to be close to you and therefore he’s interested in you. If he sits down at the same table as you for lunch, or follows you to the break room at work, he wants to be closer to you.
