How to Tell if a Guy Likes You
Do you have a secret crush? Is it a
guy you just met, or maybe
one of your long-time friends?
It’s fun to have teenage crushes, but the hardest part is
trying to figure out whether or not your crush is interested in you, too. Here are
three ways to find out if your guy crush is sending back the “I like you” vibes.
1. Pay Attention to His Body Language
When you are around your guy crush, does he shuffle his feet or avoid eye contact
for a long period of time? This might be a sign he is nervous around you — which
is either because he has a hard time talking to girls or he likes you! If he does
likes you, he might show some other body language signs like standing close to you,
giving you side hugs and being playful with you.
On the other hand, if his
body language appears
closed off, like he is folding his arms and turned slightly away from you when you
talk, this might be a sign that he needs some time to warm up to you.
2. Listen to What He Talks About
When talking to your guy crush, keep a mental note about what you two talk about.
If he shows genuine interest in you by asking you questions to get to know you better
— like asking about your family or what you do in your free time — this is a pretty
good sign that he might have feelings for you.
And of course, if he compliments you, that’s a big plus.
Another sign: He stumbles on his words. That’s a clue that he might be nervous around
you — in a good way!
3. See What He is Up to When You are Around
If your crush also has a crush on you, there a few signs that might give him away
just by what he does when you are in the same room with him. He might try to show
off on the basketball court to get your attention. You also just might catch him
looking at you from afar in the halls or during lunch.
Is your crush jumping at the chance to be your partner in
science class? Or is he walking with you in-between classes or finding silly excuses
to talk to you? These are all good indicators that he likes you — especially if
he texts you for no reason!
Also pay attention to how he acts when his friends are around.
guy friends will tease one another when one of their friend’s crushes is
nearby. His friends might even approach you to see how you feel about him.
