So you’ve met a guy who’s fun, good-looking, and easy to be around. You don’t want to get ahead of yourself, but something tells you he might be the “one.” You aren’t sure he feels the same way about you, though. He’s a friendly guy, it’s part of his charm, and it’s hard to tell if he’s interested or if he’s just being himself.
Don’t despair. Use the following thirteen suggestions to find out if that special guy is really into you:
People say more through body language than by speaking, and there are signals a man
will give if he’s interested in a woman. He’ll smile more, for example. Also, he’ll preen, or groom himself. If a guy fixes his tie every time you enter the room, odds are he’s interested.
Pay attention also to a guy’s hands and feet. Men will subconsciously point their hands and feet toward a woman who’s caught their fancy.
Does your guy tense or pull away if you touch him? These are signs he isn’t interested in you. A guy who’s into you will find every excuse to touch you, whether by hugging or by “accidental touching” such as brushing his leg against yours.
If your guy is interested he’ll make eye contact. Holding eye contact is an even stronger sign of attraction, and if he’s looking at your mouth you can stop guessing about how he feels.
WHAT’S HE SAYING?
While body language is important, don’t forget to listen to what your guy says. If he talks about himself when you’re together, this is a sign he’s into you.
DOES YOUR GUY SHOW INTEREST?
A man who’s attracted to you will pay close attention when you talk. If your guy leans in, so as not to miss a word, you’re in good shape. If he shows interest in your interests, this is even better. Has he introduced you to his family or changed his Facebook status?
DOES YOUR GUY “MIRROR” YOU?
When someone subconsciously copies your body language, they’re attempting to establish rapport. Put another way, they’re saying “we’re alike” without even realizing they’re doing so. If your guy mirrors you, he’s likely interested.
HOW DOES HE TREAT YOU?
Has your guy started to treat you differently in some subtle ways? Is he a bit more protective toward you, especially in group settings? If so, it’s a sign he’s interested in you.
IS YOUR GUY NERVOUS AROUND YOU?
Every guy will be a bit nervous around his dream-girl. Even the most confident guy is likely to show signs of nervousness around you if he’s interested.
If your guy tends to be shy, take this into account. A shy guy may tense if you touch his hand, but not necessarily because he isn’t interested.
DOES YOUR GUY NOTICE CHANGES IN YOUR APPEARANCE?
When a guy notices subtle changes in your appearance, it means he’s interested. If he compliments you on them, even better.
Playful teasing is another sign your guy is interested in you. If you’re the only one he teases, you can be pretty certain he’s attracted to you.
A playful punch on the arm may be a guy’s way of showing interest. This is another example of finding reasons to touch you, and younger guys are more likely to exhibit this behavior.
If a guy introduces you to his friends, chances are he’s into you. If his friends smile at you and accept you this is an even better sign.
ALL HIS PLANS INCLUDE YOU
If your guy can’t seem to spend enough time with you, it’s a pretty safe bet he’s head-over-heels!
It isn’t always easy to know if a guy is into you. Use the above tips to find out for sure if he really likes you!
