When we like a guy, we look for signs that they like us back. Unfortunately, guys rarely behave in a way that makes sense to us. Here’s what to look for.
We all had that boy in elementary school who was overly mean. You know, the one who was always calling you names, pushing you, or just being callous? Likely, adults had the answer for his bad behavior, and it was that he had a crush on us. Confusing enough for a growing mind, the hard reality is that little boys who behave badly often don’t stray much from the big ones who can act just as mind-bogglingly.
If you’re wondering if a guy likes you, there are some peculiar ways that he may be behaving. When a woman likes a man, she often becomes more loving and wants to take care of him, and will likely expect the same from him. The problem is that men rarely ever behave the way we expect and often not the way that we want them to.
These things may be confusing, but they actually say “I like you”
Because men can often have a difficult time of expressing their feelings through words, it’s important to pay attention to his actions to decipher his feelings for you. Here are some key actions you should be looking for.
#1 He makes fun of you. Calling you out constantly or poking fun at you are sometimes the ways that a guy will show you that he likes you. He thinks it’s fun and that he’s showing you attention, even if it feels critical and hurts your feelings.
#2 He pretends that he couldn’t care less. When you walk into the room, he doesn’t even glance your way. A guy’s ego is very fragile. If he shows that he likes you and that feeling isn’t returned, that is dangerous to him. To protect himself, he will often act like he couldn’t care less about you, when in reality, that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
#3 He does little things for you. If you notice that he’s going across town to get you coffee at your favorite place instead of just going down to the lobby, he has a crush on you.
#4 He asks what your plans are for the weekend. He may not go so far as to invite you out, but showing interest in your plans probably means that he is waiting for you to take the first step.
#5 He doesn’t answer your text. If your friend doesn’t answer, she is likely pissed. If your crush disappears in the middle of a conversation, he is probably playing hard to get.
#6 He will break up with you. Often, guys who are afraid of their own feelings will break it off with you for no reason at all. If everything is going great and he up and ends it out of nowhere, he is probably afraid of his feelings for you.
#7 He flirts with your friends. In their pea brain, they think that if they are more desirable to your friends, you will want them. They don’t see it as a personal affront, just a way to appear more popular.
#8 He helps you move. Need I say more? No guy is going to help anyone move unless he really likes you.
#9 He cleans up to meet you out. If a guy cleans up before meeting you out after a long day, he probably likes you. They rarely put in the energy to change their underwear unless they are trying to make an impression.
#10 He always seems to be there. Even if he doesn’t say a word to you while out, if you notice that he is always just “there,” he likely has a crush on you.
#11 He invites you to a family event. He may say that he’s trying to get everyone off his back by bringing a girl to a family event. But think about it, if he didn’t respect and like you, would you be the person he wants his family to think he’s dating?
#12 His apartment is clean. If you go to his apartment and it’s clean and smelling fresh, he likes you. Of course, there is always the chance that he is just really neat, but those chances are slim.
