How To Know If A Guy Loves You

How To Know If A Guy Loves You

There may be situations where You like him but are simply not aware if the same feeling resides in your better half’s heart. Or you’re wondering if he’s actually interested or not. Here is it, it doesn't matter why, what really matter is whether he actually likes you or he is just biting around the bush. 

How To Know If A Guy Loves You? Well, it is quite hard to know when he is a shy guy.
Well, honestly speaking on behalf of the male gender, it is not that hard to find out if a guy likes you more than a friend. His actions should be enough to tell you If he likes you or not.

Anyways, I know that you are already confused and wondering how you can be sure, right? Wonder no more. Here are excellent ways on How To Know If A Guy Loves You. If you can relate to the points mentioned here. He likes you more than a friend?

Examine his body language.  

Body language can be the "big tell" when it comes to discerning if that guy fancies you enough to date you. Interestingly, body language experts believe that while females have around 52 body language tells to show a guy that they're interested, guys show around only 10.  If you subscribe to this theory, this should make your guessing a little easier! All the same, you still need to know what to look for, as well as being sure that you're not mistaking innocent gestures for calls of love–the latter mistake could prove embarrassing. Some of the signs of body language to watch for include:

  • One of the most common signs is that he looks at you a lot. I mean, like a LOT . If you catch him raising his eyebrows when he glances at you (usually lasts only a fraction of a second) then that’s a huge sign he’s interested.
  • If he’s looking at your face a lot or making a lot of eye contact, that’s a sign. Also, if he’s leaning towards you or positioning himself close to you, it’s a major sign.
  • Want to know if he’s subconsciously interested? Watch his hands, feet, and legs. If they’re pointed or angled towards you, it tells you a lot about what he’s really interested in.
  • When he first sees you, does he groom himself? Does he straighten a tie, or fix his shirt, or smooth down his hair? Pretty dead on sign that he’s thinking about his appearance while you’re near – because he wants you to find him attractive.
  • Watch his sitting positions too. Men who sit with open legs or with their hands on their hips are trying to impress – and are usually interested in the woman they’re talking to.

Take Note of 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.

If you catch him looking left, then looking right at your face, then looking right – congratulations, he’s very attracted to you. But be careful – don’t confuse a shy guy’s reluctance to make eye contact with a disinterested guy’s. If he’s shy but attracted, he’ll keep looking over at you, you just have to wait and see if he does it.

Let’s say he’s around you and some other people and he makes a joke. Even if everyone laughs, his eyes will still flicker towards you to check if you’re laughing – that’s a sign he wants to impress you!

Listen to what he's saying. 

If he likes you, and he's nervous or anticipating the chance to get closer to you, he'll probably start talking about himself. Many times, guys feel the need to prove themselves, especially if you talk about another guy in his company.

  • Gauge his interest in what you have to say. It really doesn't matter what you say, it's how you say it that can tell you a lot about his level of interest. So, try this: Lean in and whisper, with your shoulder barely touching his and say something softly. To heighten the impact, steady yourself gently by brushing your arm across his back. If he moves his head closer toward you and either touches you back or maintains eye contact, he's interested in you. If he isn't interested, he'll probably step back or be very unresponsive. A really disinterested guy might even try to shoo you out of his personal space!

Take Note of How He Feels About Body Contact 

Touch is an important sign of interest in a developing relationship and you can assess interest both by observing how he touches you and how he reacts to you touching him. If he's keen on you, he might put his hand on yours when he laughs, he might gently brush his leg against yours but won't move it away again, or he may hug you for small things, such as greeting you, expressing emotions when telling a story or just because you "look like you need a hug." On the other hand, consider touching him to see what happens––a gentle brush of your hand against his neck, a hold of his forearm with your hand, or running your fingers across his hand after joking with him about something. He's interested in you if he responds to it and doesn't flinch away or if he moves his hand to stay on yours or on your arm or leg. On the other hand, if he tenses up or moves his hand away, he's not interested.
  • If he is a shy guy, he may jump a little because he wasn't prepared for you to touch him. That doesn't necessarily mean that he doesn't like you, watch his actions carefully afterwards.
  • Obviously, playboy guys (bad boys) might be very keen to spread their touching gestures around; be sure that he has more substance than this by observing how he interacts with other women in your group.
  • See if he uses any of the tricks in How to touch a girl, and see if he uses them more with you than with anyone else.

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. 
  • Try leaving to go to the bathroom or get something from outside, then see if you can find a sneaky observation point to watch him. If he stops flirting with her when you leave the room, that’s a dead giveaway that he’s just trying to see what you’ll do.

Watch for him showing a sudden, previously unexpressed interest in things that you like and do. 

For example, if you like a certain genre of music that he doesn't know as well, he may ask you to suggest bands or artists for him to listen to. Or, he may have gone to the trouble of finding out that a favorite band of yours is playing next weekend and mention to this, with or without a request to go and listen together. And, if you introduce him to a TV show that he didn't really know about and that becomes his new favorite thing, that can potentially be a sign that he likes you, especially if he goes out of his way to catch up with you to discuss the show's unfolding plot.

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.

 Pay attention to his friends.

If they know he's interested in you, they might tease him subtly when you're around, hint to you that he likes you, or even try to find out if you like him. Study their reactions to your presence––do they smile? Do they turn to him? Do they smirk in a way that suggests they know something that you don't?
  • Be careful if a friend of his makes suggestions that a guy likes you but all of the other indications tell you otherwise. Sometimes friends have reasons of their own for ensuring that any chances of you getting together are ruined, including catapulting you into making a fool of yourself.

 Check Out If He Imitates You. 

Mirroring each other's actions is a sign of mutual like and generally, it's subconscious. If you notice that he has been copying your gestures frequently, there is a high probability that he fancies you. You can test this by mirroring his actions too, for example, touch your hair when he touches his, brush your face when he brushes his, sit the way he is sitting, etc. The subconscious signals will be screaming "I like you too!"
  • Following you can be another sign; for example, if you buy lunch and sit at a table and he edges as near to, or even on the same, table as you, he is probably trying to get closer to you. Just be sure you're not confusing this action with there being a lack of space to sit anywhere else!

 Pay attention to gentle, friendly teasing. 

If a guy teases you in a friendly and fun manner, it could indicate his interest, especially if he's young. Provided this isn't his modus operandi with every girl he flirts with, it's a sign that he's singled you out for attention and is trying to use his wit to charm you, in that awkward way of using humor to cover up true intentions. Of course, if he says something unkind or unfortunate, don't feel you have to excuse it––point it out if he offends you; it's best he knows now that you won't take nonsense than to discover it later.
  • Some guys make fun of their crushes in a slightly mean way. If this goes too far, he may need a reminder to act more mature.

Does He Playfully Punch Your Arm?

This falls under the category of “finding excuses to touch you.” Playfully punching your arm is a way for him to act manly, but still get to touch you – without revealing that he likes you.
  • If a guy notices that you don’t flinch or pull away when he does it, he’s going to escalate it to finding gentler and more intimate ways of getting in contact with you.
  • However, if he actually hurts you (jerk!) you shouldn’t take that crap from him – tell him it hurt! If you don’t want to hurt his ego, you can tell him that you don’t mind him touching you – as long as he doesn’t hurt you!
  • If you’re the kind of woman who doesn’t mind dishing out a good knock when she gets one, you can try play punching him back. Be warned that he might interpret this as – “you’re my friend and I’m putting you in the friend zone”… or he might see it for what it is – an excuse to touch him!

 Acknowledge any compliments that come your way. 

If you do your hair or makeup differently one day, and the guy notices, that's a very good sign that he likes you. Most guys won't notice, or if they do, they won't be bothered to say anything unless they're totally into you. Anything like, "You look nice today," "I like that shirt," or even "Did you do your hair differently today? It looks nice," are all indicators that he could be interested in you.
  • Note: If this guy is a good friend of yours, compliments won't necessarily be indicators of romantic interest. It could just be him being a truly good friend.
  • Not all guys are this straightforward about compliments, so don't be worried if he doesn't compliment you.

 He Asks For Your Number

Until and unless his has a degree in flirting, it is a giant sign that the guy likes you. He wants to keep in touch with you and is, therefore, asking for your number. He asked your number = he wants you! No more questions to be asked. A guy won’t ask your number unless he has some important work with you or you can help him in any other manner.
However, this depends on the situation too. If a guy comes to you and asks for your number because he doesn’t have any other mode of contact, that’s an entirely different thing. On the other hand, if he asks for you even if he can meet you daily it is probably a sign that he likes you. Keep digging for more clues.

Do you have a boyfriend?

It’s like hitting the bullseye in darts. No guy would ever ask you that question if he doesn’t have feelings for you. I repeat, Never. If he doesn’t like you, he will never give a damn. It is a very simple way of knowing whether you are already taken or available. If he doesn’t ask you straight, it can be a slightly modified question like “are you seeing anyone” or “do you have a room-mate?”. These small questions can help you get a bigger picture of his feelings about you.

He gets Jealous

He gets jealous when you talk to other guys. It is a sure sign that he likes you. I am a guy, and I get the same feeling. When you are talking to other guys at the party or anywhere, he just gets to the highest level of jealousy. Of course, he will try to look as if nothing is wrong, but as soon as you turn your face aside he will be like… “what the heck is that j*** doing here” or “is she taking interest in that m***” and hundreds of more questions which probably can be heard by his soul.

He remembers every single thing you told him

Seriously, guys aren’t that good at remembering details, but if he does so, he probably likes you. Not just {like}, he {likes you very much}. (Understand the difference)
Not everyone will remember everything about you until you are very close to them. If he likes you, he remembers your birthday, your best friend’s name, your doggie’s favourite food, your favourite colour and every single thing about you? Isn’t that cute girls? Well, I have the same characteristics. ? ahem ahem!

He doesn’t check out other Girls

It is natural for guys to check out girls every other moment, and if you are just his friends, he will have no problem telling you how HOT that girl was who just passed. You would have probably got used to this fact too. However, if he doesn’t check out any other girl except you, he is probably very much into you. Spend some time with him, and just see whether he mentions about any girl or not.
Guys check out a countless number of girls every day, but when he is into you, you are obviously the only girl for him in the entire universe. To draw a better conclusion, you might even ask him whether he is interested in anyone. His answer will tell you everything. 

He helps you out

He helps you more than an average friend would do. He is ready to do your work even if it is the most tedious work of all time. Be it fixing your window or anything, he is always up to do your job. If he does so, he likes you more than a friend. After all, who will spend so much time for you if he doesn’t like you that much? Will anyone? Of course, NO! 

He asks for few more minutes

If you are just his “Friend”, he probably won’t have any problem saying BYE. But if he finds it hard to say bye at the end of the conversation, you are probably in his heart. Even an extra minute seems to be too much for a person who loves you from his heart, and so it is a clear sign that he likes you. You both can be talking the whole night on useless topic, and it might seem like the best conversation ever. Making it short, if he wants to spend a bit more time with you, he is interested.

He Chats With You for Longer Periods

If he messages you as soon as you get online. It is a sign that a guy likes you. However, you can make it an obvious sign that he likes you; it can be just that he likes you as a good friend. To draw a far better conclusion, you need to check out how he chats with you and how long the conversation lasts. If he forgets the time while talking with you, he probably likes you very much.
Also, pay attention, whether he starts any flirty conversation or not. If he does, there cannot be any better hints that he likes you. Just stop hunting for clues and make a clear choice — do you like him or not? If you still want more clues, here we go, we Still have few more left. 

He Introduces You To His Friends

Why will he introduce you to his friends when he doesn’t even like you? Won’t he, right? If he does so, it apparently means that he likes you. Maybe his friends already know about it, but won’t tell you. When a guy likes you, he will probably say about everything: his friends, family members and everything else that you should be knowing. If he takes you out to parties where all his guy friends are present, it is a clear sign that he likes you more than a friend. 

He Talks about his plans

First of all, guys don’t have enough plans? But if he discusses all of them with you… He likes you and sees a potential in you. Who knows, he might even see a future with you. Just don’t take it lightly, he might be sombre about this.

Accidental Touching

Does he touch you now and then? Well, not in the wrong manner but just in a decent and playful way? Well, it could be one of the biggest clues then. Guys love to touch their crushes, even in the slightest possible manner. Be it a small game of thumb wrestling or something else that allows him to touch you. If he does so, just be ready, a proposal is on your way?
