Well, there are certain tips and hints that he may be giving you to let you know that he likes you without actually saying the words.

Items you will need

  • A boy/man you like

Think about the last time you saw him. Did he smile at you? Was he staring at you? Did he make up an excuse to talk to you? Did he touch or graze you arm by mistake or in jest? Did he try to engage in conversation and make you laugh/tell you something about himself/or ask you something about yourself? Many times guys will use any excuse to talk to girl he likes. If he is trying to make you laugh or touch you for any reason, he is trying to impress you.

Ask him to hang out. If he is already a friend or someone you know, invite him to hang out with you and your friends on a movie or dinner night. If this is a guy you are unsure about or don't know too well, make sure more than 4 people are going so that he doesn't feel uncomfortable being with a close knit group. You will be able to tell if he likes you by his response to your invite. If he seems to eager and happy at the invite, it is most probable that he likes you. If he says no, but gives a reason why he can't go and wants to make sure that you understand that he would have gone, were it not for this other thing, then he most probably likes you.

Flirt with another guy when around him. This may seem like game playing but his reaction to your flirting or talking about another guy will fill you in to whether or not he is interested. If he puts the other guy down as not good enough for you, seems to be having to put a false smile on his face and avoiding your eyes when talking, it shows he is jealous and upset that you may like someone else and not him.
