He likes you but he is hiding it – What are the signs that a guy secretly likes you more than a friend?
When a guy likes you he can’t hide that and you should notice that. He will do so obvious things that you should understand that he is into you.
Not all guys are the same. There are shy ones that will never tell you what they think of you or do they have some feelings for you. But most of them when they like you, they react the same.
Here we will show you the most common body language signs that a guy likes you and he wants to be more than a friend with you.
Signs He Likes You More Than A Friend
Takes time to chat with you online
So common these days in the digital era one of the signs that a guy likes you is that he is using every possibility to message you. Maybe if you see “like” on every picture you post on Instagram and after that a direct message, yes that is one of the signs.
But if you are in an opposite situation where you message him first and you get only one or two words as a response, well he is not very interested in you. If he can’t take time to chat a little with you than he is not worth the time.
Wants to know if you are a single
Guys have clever ways to find out if you are single. Sometimes they will ask your friends, but in most situations, they know how to find out, but not directly.
They may ask you something like: “Why you are out tonight alone, where is your boyfriend?” or “Where is your boyfriend?” Simple questions but in the background, he wants to know more about your love life.
If he asks something like this he is definitely into you because if he wasn’t there is no need of asking questions like these.
Shows signs of physical affection
Pay attention to how he reacts when you are near him. When a guy likes you he will use every situation to make physical contact with you. That can be just a hug (longer than usual) when he meets you, brushing up against you, touching your arm, patting your leg. These are all signs that he likes you more than a friend.
He doesn’t mind if you invade his place. We all are protective of our personal space, but when we like someone these boundary changes. It is an instinct to be close to someone you like. When a guy likes you he wants you to be close to him and he would do anything to make that happen.
He is nervous
Maybe you think that guys are so strong and brave, but when they need to talk with a girl they become so nervous. You can notice that tension if you watch their moves.
Is he wawing with hands when he talks with you, constantly touching his hair, putting his hands in the pockets and getting out more than once, tapping his heels, or any unusual gesture that shows a little tension?
Watch his sitting position too. If he sits with open legs or with their hands on their hips – they are usually trying to impress the woman they are talking to.
These kinds of moves are the body’s subconscious way of releasing the tension, so if you see him doing these in your presence he likes you.
Eye contact flirting is harmless, fun, and interested way to find out if someone is interested in you. You can use it everywhere in a coffee shop, restaurant, party, and any other place.
Guys will try to secretly look at you when he is sure that you are not watching, but if you notice that make a move and look him in the eyes too. If he turns his look away at that moment he is into you.
Sometimes more confident guys will not look away, they will stay looking at you for a couple more seconds, that is a sign that he likes you and expect to come to talk with you.
If you are not sure if he is looking at you or someone else to this: Look at him for 3 to 4 seconds then turn your look away and in a second brings back your look on him. If he is still looking at you that is a good sign.
But sometimes guys are shy and they will turn away their look and be afraid to make an eye contact with you.
Eye contact tips for girls:
- It is easier for guys to approach a girl who is willing to exchange a flirty stare. If you like someone stare back and build eye contact. It is easier for a guy to approach if he notices that you are looking at him too.
- Notice when he is looking at you, use that moment to go to a lady’s room. When you are going stop and lean back to look at him. If he is still looking at you that is a good sign. be prepared to chat with him, because when you go back to your place he will come to talk with you.
Ignoring his smartphone
In these modern days, smartphones are used as an anxiety reliever in a bad situation. When you are not interested in what a person near is saying you probably get your phone and scroll through social media.
If a guy does this when he is talking to you that is a bad sign. But if he listens what you say and even doesn’t look at the phone when he receives a message or notification he is totally into you.
If you see him ignoring his phone when you are around him, that is one of the signs that he likes you.
Flirt with other girls
One interesting tactic that guys often use when they are interested in a girl is that they start flirting with other girls when you are near them. How to notice this tactic?
If you are at a party with a lot of people and a guy that likes you start flirting with another girl or start talking with her, notice if he is looking at you when doing that. Stand up and go to a ladies room, when you are coming back just hide a little and see if he is still talking to her. If not he is not interesting at her. He just wanted to see your reaction.
When a guy likes you he would do things that usually don’t do. Even a tactic like this is not normal for you, but he would do anything to get the attention and make contact with you.
Introduces you to his friends
If he is introducing you to the people that he cares about most that are a big sign that he is interested in you. Watch carefully when you are with him and his friends, do they make jokes and making fun of him, and all that is related to you and him?
Are they smiling and looking at him when you get into the room. If that is happening he told them about you, that he likes you and they can’t stand to make a joke with him or smile when you are near. That is just a natural reaction from those people. They are just happy about what can happen with you and their friend they are not making fun of you.
Another good sign is when you hear from people close to him that he was asking about you. Yes, this is an excellent sign that he likes you. He is not hiding that and not afraid to ask someone who knows that will tell you that. That is a big step toward the first date.
Mirror body movements
Have you ever laughed after someone starts to laughing, or yawned after someone yawned? These are reacting subconsciously to someone’s actions. If a guy likes you he will be influenced by you on a subconscious level.
Let’s say, he will fold his arms right after you do that, or lean back on the sit after you do that first. When we like someone we unconsciously mirror their movements in addition to their gestures and even tone of voice.
These mirror movements are not conscious and they are hard to notice. They build trust, connection, and understanding. But if you notice them, be sure that subconsciously he is open for further deep connection with you.
Notices when you change your look
If you make any small changes, like hair color, different makeup, or just the way you do your hair, if he notices and compliments you on it, definitely he is interested in you.
Normally guys don’t notice when a girl makes small changes on her look. But if he likes you he will notice even the smallest changes. If he notices the change it means he is paying special attention to how you look, and if he compliments you it means he is trying to get closer to you.
He is very helpful
When a guy likes you he is always prepared to help you in any situation. He will make time and leave other things behind just to spend more time with you.
If you have plans of repainting the room, change the furniture or something like that and told him the plans, be sure that if he likes you he will be the first who will offer his help. He wants to spend more time with you to see if he has a chance with you.
