Signs That He Likes You – From Guys’ Point of View



Signs He Likes You

1. He Replies To All Your Texts

Okay, this applies to guys who are already friends with you. If you two have been texting straight for more than one hour talking about nothing serious, then it’s one of the sure signs he likes you. Keeping a long conversation with a girl means that a guy really wants to be close and get to know you better.

2. Clicking “Like”

We can’t get any more obvious than this. If you are friends on Facebook, you will know when a guy likes you when he frequently hits you up on the chat or keeps “liking” most of your posts. If he likes you, it’s very likely that he’s keeping tabs on your page. If you notice a flurry of “likes” from this guy, then that’s a hot sign.

3. The Guy Asks You Out


4. Smiles and Glances

If a guy regularly smiles when around you or when chatting to you, it is a positive signal he may like you. When you are together or when you are in a group of friends, try to see if he steals glances and smiles when he is looking at you.

5. Leaning

When trying to gauge whether or not a guy likes you, body language is really important. It can be subtle but there are some basics you can look out for.  In much the same way as a girl, a guy will tend to lean towards the person they like when they are seated in a table or standing together.

6. Grooming

Guys are practically cavemen, but if they start shaving their beards, getting haircuts, and grooming themselves, then they really, really like you!

7. Flaunting

And because guys are still basically like cavemen, they like to show off that they have the bigger club and that they are the more evolved species of the sexes. Guys will show off to women they like. Be it cars, money, or even their job.

8. Tactile

Little touches on your arm, hand, shoulder etc are all positive signs. When a guy likes you he will sometimes intentionally and sometimes sub consciously make physical contact with you. A gentle touch of the hand after a joke or saying things like “you need a hug” to you can all be taken as signs he likes you. If he shy’s away from you in these situations, it is not always a bad sign. He may just be shy.

9. Guy Smells Good

Believe it or not, guys actually take time trying to smell good, whether it is using expensive shower gels or a nice cologne or perfume. They do this when they know that they are going to meet up with a girl they like. Take a good sniff around and smell for yourself. If there is a nice pong, he has made an effort foe you.

10. “I Like You”

… and your hair, and your smell, and your eyes, etc. If compliments like these keep coming out, then the guy has really taken the bait.  Guys are simple creatures; you really don’t need tarot cards to read them.

If most of these signs are manifesting, you can bet that your guy will confess his feelings for you soon or just let it develop into a deeper relationship by asking you out more often.

The biggest piece of advice I would give and the mistake I see girls making all too often is DO NOT ACT DESPERATE! In my experience, in the early stages, even if all the signs are there, if you start to reciprocate and text or call him too much, it can put him off. It is better to be a little more subtle. Let him know you are worth the effort he is putting in. Don’t totally ignore him but at the same time don’t come on too heavy.

I hope these tips will help you in your search for Mr Right!

Guys can be so difficult to read. One minute they are looking at you, the next they are looking at someone else. They say hi as you walk by, but are they just being friendly or do they like you? To help navigate through these situations, they have been kind enough to put together a list of 10 signs he likes you.

  1. I think just wanting to spend time with you as well, for example if you are both invited to a group event he makes sure he is there if you are!


  2. LOL….. Just replace “guys” with “girls” in this statement 🙂 “Guys can be so difficult to read. One minute they are looking at you, the next they are looking at someone else. They say hi as you walk by, but are they just being friendly or do they like you?” ………Hey ladies, kind of give us guys a clue you like us…. we are not mind readers. And for older ladies….this a new century – not the 1960s or 1970s. You can speak up and ask questions if you want to get to know us guys better.


  3. okay I have been having this guy we were just fooling around and now i have discovered feelings for him…. im the booty call who hangs around with him and play PS3 on saterdays…


    • Hmm … I think if I guy really likes a girl he’ll do something about it more often than not, if he’s THAT shy then probably not the kind of guy you want unless you like being the one in charge. If the feeling is mutual you can always make the first move!


  4. I have this one guy friend whom i like and he always touch me accidentally, and sometimes in a playful way or with a valid reason like when crossing the roads, open his arm to hug me when i turn around to different direction, even as far as reaching my head to rest on his shoulders (but he never did this to his other girl friends), he always come whenever i need him be it emergency or just to hang out, very reliable, he even jokes about he likes me and feel jealous when i’m with other guy, but when we’re together he likes to look at his phone (facebook etc) he even talks to me about all of his past and current crushes/exes and how he’s afraid of commitment and so on.. so how can i know that if he’s interested in me or just being nice and feel really comfortable with me? I’m so confused.


    • I think he really likes you!!!! Gosh he is really sweet! I think he is only acting ‘distant’ because he is only trying to push you away and afraid of commitment. He is vulnerable, afraid that you come too close to you, he might be the one getting hurt in the end, hence he is trying to protect himself like a porcupine and pushing you away with the talks of his past, etc,hoping to scare you away. No worries. You should ask him straight up how he feels about you.
      a single girl that hasn’t had a bf before. (haha) 😦
      Have a nice day


  5. This list reminds me of somebody. But six months ago, back when I liked him, and asked him out, he rejected me saying he was only playing and flirting and I misread him. I was furious but cut him off and got over him. Now I see him only as a platonic friend. And now he’s doing all of these signs. I can’t trust him anymore, so I ignore them and largely ignore him. He seems hurt when I do this, but didn’t he ask for it? He said we were platonic friends only so I took that at face value and decided, ok then, that’s the way it is then; prepare to experience that – forever.

    And now he wants to act all butthurt? Screw him. Am I doing the right thing by giving a guy that does these things a face full of ice?


  6. I know a guy who does all these things to every girl he talks to, which makes her feel wonderful and special until he eventually gets her in bed. Then he’s done. Beware the salesman.


  7. I had a guy friend back in college. We were so close that people around us thought that we were a couple. I had feelings for him but I kept it to myself since I was afraid of ruining our friendship and besides my priority then were my studies. One night,our common friend asked me if that friend of mine and me were a couple. I said no and intentionally said that he is like a brother to me. I knew that he would overhear it. I knew he would get hurt but I said it to protect our friendship. The next day we would not talk to me until it turned out to be a month of not talking to me totally. I transferred to another school and we lost contact..I tried reaching out to him but he would not receprocate. I was in love with him for 7 years. I am married now but I am not happy. I would still think of my guy friend!


  8. How about guys who thank you for letting them do something for you? I have a guy in my life right now who thanks me for letting him give me a ride or for hanging out…he usually texts me a day or two later.
