How To Tell If A Guy Likes You

Signs a guy likes you

Are you wondering if a guy likes you and he’s hiding it? Or maybe you think he’s falling for you but he hasn’t said anything yet.

One of the most common signs a guy likes you is that he’ll want to be around you most of the time.

Whether you just started dating a new guy or you have a crush on a male colleague, there are many ways to know if someone is developing feelings for you.

In this article, we take a look at some telltale signs someone is interested in you.

How To Tell If A Guy Likes You


If you see any of these signs of love, it means a guy really likes you and wants to date you seriously.

Watch closely though because when a guy only wants to sleep with you, he may disguise his true intentions and pretend to be in love with you.

Here are 12 real signs a guy likes you:

#1 He shows excitement when he sees you

One of the first signs a guy is falling in love is that he’ll be excited to see you every time you get together.

Do you notice that his eyes light up and a smile appears on his face whenever you meet each other?

That’s a sure sign he likes you and enjoys being around you.

Of course, some men may suppress their feelings and not show that they’re happy to see you.

Even if he doesn’t smile or show any signs of excitement, you can be able to tell from his body language that he likes you.

#2 He wants to see you more often

When a couple falls in love, they’ll miss each other and want to spend a lot of time together.

This is because of the oxytocin hormone that’s being released into the bloodstream by the brain.

The love hormone makes you want to be close to someone you love and it’s often an uncontrollable feeling similar to being intoxicated.

If a guy always says “When can I see you again?” at the time of departure, it means he’s interested in you and wants to date you.

#3 He does things to make you happy

Another sign a guy likes you is that he’ll do little things to make you happy even if it inconveniences him.

For example, if you tell him you love a particular flower, he’ll remember it and bring a bouquet of it the next time you meet.

Or if you mention your favorite author, he’ll find a limited edition of their book and give it to you as a birthday present.

This is a sign he has been thinking of you and that you mean something to me.

Some guys also do this when they only want to sleep with you so watch out for the other signs of love.

#4 He gets jealous when he sees you with other men

Jealousy can be a good thing if it happens once in a while and doesn’t turn into an obsession.

Ideally, when you love something, you want to hide it and protect it from danger.

On the other hand, you may choose to flaunt it but don’t want other people to touch it. This happens in love relationships too!

If a guy sees you with another man and asks you questions about them, that’s a sign of jealousy, especially if you’re not dating yet.

It could also be a sign of curiosity but if a guy likes you, there’s a chance he’ll be protective of you and wouldn’t want other men having access to you.

#5 He tells you personal details about his life

People often express their true feelings in relationships when they like you and want to gain your trust.

Does he tell you things he’ll never tell another soul?

When we feel a connection to someone, we open our hearts to them and tell them sensitive information about ourselves.

A guy who is falling in love with you will tell you funny and embarrassing stories about his past because he feels emotionally connected to you.

#6 He tries to impress you

Another way to tell if a guy likes you is that he’ll try to impress you in any way he can.

For instance, he’ll get a new haircut, dress up nicely, and order an Uber when you’re going out on a date.

He’ll also open the car door for you, pay for lunch, and drop you off at home when your date is over.

A guy who doesn’t like you won’t go to great heights to impress you.

He’ll put in the minimal effort because he’s not planning to stay for the long haul and is only interested in getting laid.

#7 He touches you affectionately

One of the major signs a guy likes you is that he’ll maintain eye contact with you and display his affection for you openly?

For example, he’ll hold your hand gently when you’re having a conversation or brush your hair off your face if it’s getting close to your eyes.

Whatever the scenario, a guy who likes you will touch you affectionately when you’re together.

However, this could also mean he’s interested in sleeping with you so keep an eye out for other signals.

#8 He stares at you all the time

Do you catch a guy stealing glances at you when you’re not looking?

And does he constantly gaze into your eyes when you’re talking?

If a guy keeps staring at you even when you’re doing something else, it’s because he’s fascinated by you and wants to get to know you on a deep level.

#9 He wants to know all about you

A guy who likes you will want to be your friend even before he talks about getting into a romantic relationship.

He’ll show interest in your hobbies and work, ask you deep questions about your life, and be willing to listen to you talk about yourself.

A subtle sign a guy is only interested in sleeping with you and doesn’t care about being with you for a long time is that he’ll talk about himself a lot.

But if he genuinely likes you and wants a serious relationship with you, he’ll pay more attention to you.

This means he’ll call frequently to check up on you and see what you’re up to.

And he’ll listen to you rant about a bad day at work without trying to make it all about himself.

#10 He cares about your well-being

When a guy likes you he’ll be concerned about your overall wellness and will do what he can to support you.

For example, if you’re sick or hurt, he’ll bring you groceries or prepare a homemade meal for you.

He may also accompany you to the hospital for your treatment or checkups.

A guy who is not into you will make excuses and be unavailable when you need him the most.

#11 He goes out of his way to help you

Another sign a guy is really into you is that he’ll go the extra mile to give you comfort and ease your pain.

For instance, if he sees you’re stressed about something, he’ll come up with a plan to solve the problem.

Even if he doesn’t know what to do, he’ll call a few people and ask for information or directions on how to accomplish the goal.

If someone is unbothered about your problems, it’s a sign they don’t care about you and are only coming around for what they can gain from you.

#12 He wants to show you his world

One of the biggest signs a guy likes you is that he’ll want to show you to his close friends and family members.

He may not introduce you to his parents right away but he won’t keep his relationship secret either. And he’ll want you to get to know his world too!

Of course, someone who wants to sleep with you will invite you to his house so he can seduce you.

But if he really likes you, he won’t hide you from his inner circle and only see you behind closed doors.

He’ll introduce you to his friends, hobbies, and social life because he wants you to be a part of his world.


Knowing when someone genuinely likes you can be confusing because many people pretend to love others for their own personal gain.

Sometimes, you think a guy really likes you and you open your heart to him only to discover several weeks later that he’s a big flirt.

To avoid committing to a serious relationship and getting your heart broken, it’s important to clearly interpret the signals you’re getting from a guy.

A big sign a guy is interested in you is that he’ll focus on getting to know you and making you happy rather than paying more attention to what he can get from you.

If a guy is more concerned about spending time with you intimately without putting more effort to know you as a person, that’s a sign he’s a player.

However, if he asks you questions about your life, remembers little details about you, and is concerned about your well-being, it means he really likes you.

So before you get into a romantic relationship with a guy, make sure his love is genuine by observing his words, actions, and body language.

Most times if a guy is for real, your instincts will tell you and you’ll also notice a lot of good signs in your relationship.
