24 Signs A Guy Likes You: Decoding His Body Language

24 Signs A Guy Likes YouSo you want to know if a guy  likes you? Some guys can be hard to read if they don’t just come right out and tell you they like you.

The good news is that a guy’s body language can be a big giveaway when it comes to figuring out if he likes you.

There are certain things guys do subconsciously when they like a woman. If you know what signs to look for, you can decode his body language and find out if he’s crushing on you.

Here is a list of 24 signs a guy likes you. If a guy did only one of these things, it probably wouldn’t tell you much. But if he does a bunch of them, then you can be pretty sure he likes you.

Click here to take our quiz to find out if your crush likes you back.

1. He smiles at you

If you notice a guy smiling at you, it’s a pretty good indication he likes you. It’s natural to smile at someone you like, but how do you know if it means something more? Try to notice how often he smiles at you. If he seems to smile at you a lot more than would seem normal, he probably likes you. If he seems to smile at you whenever you lock eyes, for no apparent reason, he probably likes you.

2. He maintains eye contact with you

If a guy makes eye contact with you and it feels prolonged, even just a fraction of a second longer than would seem normal, he is most likely interested in you. Especially if he flashes you a big grin at the same time.

3. You catch him staring at you

Have you ever caught a guy staring at you, and he suddenly turns away? If you catch him once, it could be a mere coincidence. But if it happens more than once, chances are he likes you. Provided you aren’t doing or wearing something absurd or have food on your face, he’s probably into you.

4. He’s always around

If a guy is always walking near you, sitting next to you, or just seems to pop up wherever you are, those are all good signs that he is interested and trying to find opportunities to get closer to you.

5. He stands a little too close

If you feel as though a guy is invading your personal space just slightly, this could be a major sign that he likes you. Take note of the distance between you when he’s around. If he’s a little bit closer than he should be, he probably likes you. If you move in a little and he doesn’t step back, it means he’s receptive. If he responds by getting even closer, you can be pretty certain he really likes you.

6. He leans in, shoulders square to you, without turning his back

If a guy leans in facing you with his shoulders square to you, and rarely turns his back, that kind of body language is a good indication he’s interested in you.

7. His legs, feet, or toes are pointed towards you

When a guy is interested in you, he may subconsciously point his legs, feet, or toes towards you. People tend to point their feet in the direction of where they want to go or who they are interested in.

8. He stands tall

When a guy likes you, he may subconsciously stand up taller, push his chest out, and tuck his stomach in to impress you and appear more masculine. If a guy is slouching and suddenly stands up taller when he sees you, this could indicate he’s subconsciously trying to impress you.

9. He mirrors your body language

People tend to subconsciously mirror each other’s actions when they are listening to one another intently. If a guy mimics your body language, this could be strong indication of his interest because it means he’s focused on you. Try leaning forward, touching your hair, taking a sip of your drink, or resting your chin on your hand. If a guy likes you, he might start copying your gestures without even realizing he’s doing it.

10. He touches you

If you notice a guy making a lot of unnecessary physical contact with you, he probably likes you. He might brush against your arm, pat you on the back, put his hands on your shoulders, touch his leg to yours, or give you a lot of hugs. The more physical contact he makes, the more obvious it is that he likes you.

11. He raises his eyebrows 

If a guy raises his eyebrows in response to something you say or do, it could be an indication of his interest in you. On its own, this might not be enough to tell if a guy likes you, as it could just be a friendly, non-flirty facial expression, so watch out for other signs too.

12. He grooms himself

If a guy starts grooming himself when he sees you, he may be subconsciously trying to look good around you. If he starts fixing his hair, brushing the lint off his clothes, or straightening his tie, it could mean that he likes you.

13. He’s nervous, awkward, or clumsy around you

If a guy acts nervous, blushes, gets flustered, or is just awkward around you, he probably likes you. He’s most likely nervous about making a good impression.

14. He laughs at your jokes

If he laughs at your jokes, even when they aren’t that funny, it’s a good sign he likes you.

15. He shows off

If a guy tends to show off a lot around you, he probably likes you and is just trying to get your attention.

16. After he says or does something funny, he looks at you for a reaction

Let’s say a guy tells a joke or does something funny in a group and everyone around starts laughing. If he looks at you first to see your reaction, it’s a sign he likes you because he wants to make sure you noticed and laughed too.

17. His behavior changes instantly

If a guy’s behavior changes the minute he sees you, that could be a sign he likes you and is trying to impress you. If he’s in a group and he’s laughing or acting rowdy, he might instantly quiet down when he notices you. Or he might have been quiet and then suddenly gets louder and tries to become the center of attention to impress you.

18. He treats you differently

Watch how a guy acts around his friends or other girls. If he treats you differently, that could be a sign he likes you.

19. He’s protective

If a guy likes you, he may start to act protective of you. He might give you his jacket if you’re cold. Or if you are walking through a crowded place, he might position himself in front of you to push away the crowd.

20. His friends tease him around you

If you’re around a guy when he’s hanging out with his friends, and they know he likes you, they may tease him subtly. Watch how his friends act around you. If they turn towards him, smile at him, punch him in the arm, or smirk knowingly, they’re probably messing with him because they know he likes you.

21. Acts annoyed or jealous when you talk to other guys

If a guy is keeping an eye on you and looks jealous or annoyed when you’re talking to another guy, he probably likes you. He might try to look like he’s not paying attention, but he’ll keep tabs on you to see if you’re interested in the other guy. He might even sigh or walk away.

22. Watches you while he flirts with other girls

If a guy’s watching you while he’s flirting with another girl, he’s probably trying to get your attention and gauge your reaction to find out if you like him. Why else would he be looking at you when he’s supposed to be flirting with someone else if he didn’t like you?

23. He hangs around one second longer

When you’ve been talking to a guy, and he’s about to leave, but then stays one second longer than he had to, it’s a sign he likes you. That one second longer was a moment of hesitation where he was trying to decide if he should ask for your number or ask you out.

24. He takes one last look at you

If a guy makes eye contact with you just before leaving the room, even though he’s busy talking to someone else, he probably likes you and wanted to get one last look at you. He was probably hoping you were looking at him too so he could lock eyes with you one more time.

    I am in a situation that is so confusing. There is this guy,who has me tangled up in his web. I don’t know if I’m getting this right. I went to his office for academic matters.. I thought he had forgotten my face, Bt he didn’t. One time at school,he pinpointed me in the crowd & smiled.He caught me off guard. I went to him to see what he wanted. He made some jokes about us being friends,I just laughed & replied that I didn’t know. Then He sent me to run him some errands. I did exactly what he told me to do. The other day, a friend & i went to his office again to enquire about academic related matters. This time I was calm, but I got nervous later on when he came to make an announcement. When it was our turn to enter his office & we did.in there we did our enquiry. He pointed at me, not my friend, he smiled at me & said that I was vivacious & he maintained Eye contact with me.i didn’t even have the guts to look him in the eyes. I just smiled back at him. All this came out as a surprise, cos I wasn’t expecting him to say that. I could say that he was contented to see me,Bt I don’t know why he acts so bizarre with me. Frankly, he gives me some heebie-jeebies. I hope he does that to all students. I am disconcerted with this problem..help me!

  4. Alexa Newton says

    I am disconcerted whenever he does these peculiar things. But I have noticed that in my own way & sometimes I don’t want to go & face him at his office. I get nervous! The first time when I went to his work place for academic related matters,I thought he had forgotten my face,Bt he didn’t, instead he pinpointed me in the crowd & smiled. The other day was when we were in his office,we went there to enquire him about academic matters. We enquired. I went with a friend, he maintained Eye contact with me , smiled & said that I was so vivacious. Frankly, he gave some heebie-jeebies. I can’t even look him in the eyes.

  5.

  6. So, there is this guy, I catch him looking at me sometimes. One time, when I was waiting for the bus to come, I saw his friend point at me, or at least someone around me with an amused face. Oh, and today, I was crying in second period, he came and stood next to me while we were waiting for the bell to ring. Does he like me? Idk. To be honest, he could hate me. Or, he just thinks I’m weird and is amused by me acting dumb. I can’t tell, neither do I care, but it’s interesting.

  7. OK… Ik a guy and he’s really funny and he has a pet name for me and stuff and he acts nervous around me… but I’m just not sure that he likes me. Can anyone tell me what’s happening??

  8. Rene'e Tomure says

    So we just recently started university, and this guy keeps staring a bit. His friend also teases him whenever I walk by…but he has never talked to me. I think he likes me. Do we actually have a chance?

  9. He always touching me, he always lean his head on my shoulder, he kiss my cheek a lot, he give a lot of hug, he always holding my hand.

  10. Hi my name is Laura and i want to start from the beginning my boss said to me he likes me in fort of another co-worker and I’m guessing that must be a just a work thing but whenever he said that I started to feel something for my boss. And he laughs at my jokes and I laugh at his. And one night I wasn’t expecting him to be at work he comes over to check up on me and I was surprised to see him and I was giving him this big smile and we both stopped talking and we both were smiling at each other and looking into each other eyes. And that night he kept coming up to me asking how much work I had and just talking to me . And last week I had asked him if I could come in extra to work a few hours he said he had no problem with it he also said you can come in at 7:00 I will be here. We both laughed and smiled at each other laugh and I said I’d come in at 8:30 he also was walking with me and standing close to me saying that you’re a lifesaver for doing this. Now this week it feels like there’s a lot of tension going on and I don’t know how to react to him I really like him and I would like to tell him I feel maybe it’s to soon. I don’t want miss things up. I still want to talk to him get to know him. Please if someone can help me tell me what should I do.

    • If this is your boss that’s coming onto you, this does not sound like a situation that would end well. It’s one thing to like him as a boss, but if you get into a personal relationship with him, the situation has the potential for really going south, if one gets the drift. I say that since it’s your boss, it’s best to keep the relationship strictly professional.
