Well, this can be very easy to tell sometimes. Other times, its a bit harder. If he brings you flowers and rents a limousine to take you out to dinner or clubbing, it is a pretty good bet that he likes you. Then again he may just be rich and that is the way he rolls. Probably not though.
It also depends on his and your age. If you are still in your teens, it can be harder to tell. He might be obnoxious to you because he is nervous and hasn’t learned how convey his emotions. Hopefully if he is teasing, he does it in a good natured way. This is a positive sign. If he does it in a meaner way, he may just be a bit clueless and not understanding how he comes across. Or, he could just be a jerk. Try teasing him back, but do it in a nice way to start. If he doesn’t change and get nicer after a bit, just ignore him. If he really likes you, he might decide to change his behavior. If you just simply don’t like him, ignore him. It doesn’t matter what he feels for you, your feelings are most important.
How to Prevent Repelling Men
Before getting into how to tell if a man likes you, you need to work on yourself. Internally, not your physical exterior looks. You need to have confidence and think well of yourself. If you have self-doubt and a poor self image, you will probably turn off nice guys who would be attracted to you and also attract the wrong type of guy.
A lot of what guys do is subconscious and they probably don’t even realize they are doing these things.
Signs to Look For
Does he show up more frequently or call more often. If you work together or he lives in the same complex, does he seem to go out of his way to be where you are going to be? And when he is around you does he try to get more physically close? He may also subconsciously mimic your gestures.
Have you noticed that some guys like to show off and brag? Others are a bit more subtle about it, but if they like you, they will attempt to impress you. Sometimes, even though well-intentioned, this can flat or be a turn off. Guys can be dumb sometimes. He may also “strut” more, standing straighter and shoulders back and chest out.
Body language also can be seen by his leaning in towards you than most people would. If he is not facing you and is distracted, he probably isn’t too interested.
Laughter – He will smile more than usual and try to make you laugh. Plus, you will think you are suddenly wittier than usual because he will laugh at all your jokes.
Paying attention – He will listen intently to what you have to say and pay attention and enjoy conversing with you. If he is shy, he may have a bit of problem making conversation at first.
Eye contact – Guys who like you will keep looking at you. If they are shy, they will look away when you notice them looking. But, if they like you, they will be looking your way again very soon. Some guys who stare are just creepy. That is not what we are talking about here. If it is not creepy, take it as a compliment that they can’t stop looking at you.
Touch – Guys who like you will find reasons for playful physical contact.
Nervous or awkward? – Does he get a bit flustered or tongue tied at times? Or act awkward? He may be wanting to make a great impression but is nervous and this is making it harder for him to make conversation.
These are some telltale signs. Hope that helps.
