10 signs that he likes you

How can you tell if a guy likes you or is interested? You noticed him when you were standing and talking with a friend. You think he noticed you, but maybe it was your imagination or just wishful thinking. He looked at you at about the same time you saw him. Your eyes met for just a few seconds, and then you looked away. When you looked back up, he was talking with some other people. Was he watching you as you mingled? Or were you making that up? How can you tell if a guy likes you? Why are guys so hard to read?

Here are ten signs that he is interested in you too. If any of the following happens, he is probably trying to get close enough to ask you out:

1. He tells someone

Is he interested? He likes you if he tells a mutual friend that he wants to know more about you, or he asks other people who you are and where you're from. He is trying to act like he's "just asking" but his questions indicate more than a casual interest. And when he tells someone that he finds you attractive, he probably knows that it will get back to you. He's hoping it does.

2. The look

He gives you a look that betrays his calm exterior. Even though he is across the room, "that look" he has says it all. It is sweeping, from your head to your toes, and then his eyes linger on yours. You think you notice the beginning of a tentative smile. 
If you catch him looking at you and he smiles when your eyes meet, there is a very good chance he is interested in you. If he does it once he might just be friendly. If he does it twice or more, he likes you.

3. Looking away style

A boy that is shy or introverted is likely to look away very suddenly when he makes eye contact with you. The giveaway in this case is the quick head snap or the eyes darting away. Wait for a moment or two after he looks away before looking back at him. If he likes you, odds are he'll be looking again and the process will repeat.
A great way to watch him without making eye contact is to have your friends watch him. Try not to look at him during this test. Have your friends watch to see where his eyes are looking. If he likes you, he will be so engrossed in following you around the room that he won't notice your friends are spying.

4. The conversation

Does he like you? When he manages to get close enough to you, to ask you questions, he is interested. He appears to be listening and responds to what you say. He's moving in to the ultimate question, which is: "Are you seeing anyone." He would only ask this question if he wanted to date you, and he hopes the answer is "No." Never ever wear a ring in public. When a guy is across the room, he cannot tell which finger it is on and he may assume incorrectly that you are taken. If he doesn't ask you the question of whether or not you are attached, he may ask someone whom you both know.

5. Less eye contact and interaction

Sometimes when a boy acts like you don't exist when you are near, he may actually be very interested in you. This is because being around you may intimidate him. Give him some distance and see if he loosens up and returns to staring at you.

6. Teases you

This may seem counterintuitive, but he might tease you because he likes you. It's true though. Some boys don't know how to express their feelings or may not even understand his feelings. 

Other boys want to tell you they are interested but don't know how-except by teasing. While you may be annoyed by his actions, understand that it is a form of attention. You might want to tease him back a little--it's a good way to flirt with a guy.

7. His friends talk to you

If one or more of his friends starts talking to you, chances are he has asked them to find out if you are interested. Whatever you tell his friends will be passed along to him. Once he knows that you are interested, he will probably follow up by talking to you himself.

8. Show interest to you friends

Boys may begin to show interest in your friends if he is interested in you. He may want to ask your friends if you like him, or he may just use your friends to get closer to you.

9. He appears unexpectedly

He likes you a lot if he shows up out of nowhere. He can only do that if he has been asking people about your schedule, or he has been paying attention to where you are going and at what time. 

His face may turn red when he sees you. A sudden, "Oh, hi," is his way of saying, "I don't want to seem obvious, but I am interested in you." If you feel the same way, do not act shy. Stop and talk to him. 

It's one thing to spot him looking at you when you are the only person in the room--but what about when you are standing in a crowd? He is interested if he fixes his gaze on you when he has so many other choices.

10. Does nice and tries to hard (effort)

Many boys will do very nice things for you if given the opportunity. He might offer to carry heavy objects for you, hold the door, or other acts of service.

To get your attention and to win you over, boys will sometimes try too hard. This can be in the form of being overly funny (and usually failing to be funny at all) or showing off his athletic skills.

Is he interested? When you are well liked and a happy person, why wouldn't he like you? Of course he does. If you don't have a great life, however, now is your time to start working on one. Take a look at your career possibilities, body image, future, plans, and resources. You may be naturally talented at something, but it won't matter unless you work on your strengths. Misused or unused talents fade away. School and training do not.

These are the top ten signs that he is interested and he is on the verge of asking you out. Make it easy for him and be friendly. This is where relationships begin. Watch for the signs or to be absolutely certain - simply ask him.
