Are you having relationship trouble? Do you feel like your crush doesn’t even know you exist? We often get so caught up chasing the person of our dreams, we don’t even notice when someone else is crazy for us. As men, we are constantly looking for new ways to impress women. We just need you to notice us. Let’s talk about ways to tell if a guy likes you.
The Tone of his Voice
You can tell a lot about a guy’s affection for you by how he speaks. This is normally one of the first tell tale signs. If someone is nervous, you’ll pick that up pretty quickly. Is he having trouble forming sentences? Is his voice cracking? He’s probably scared. Aside from their tone, the subject of conversation is also important. There’s a number of things a guy might say to try and impress you. Remember, guy’s often get insecure when talking to their crush. They’re afraid of looking like a fool. As a result, we may attempt to boost our resume to enhance our image.
Yup, we sometimes over exaggerate our responsibilities in the workplace. But this is a relatively harmless insecurity. Some guys can come off just plain annoying. Are they bragging about how much money they make? How about lavish vacations? Are they wooing you with stories about a daredevil stunt they pulled? Perhaps bungee jumping or skydiving? These are things he is praying you are interested in. Now don’t get me wrong, we all want a person who enjoys having a good time. There are just more subtle ways to bring it up. Another thing you want to pay attention to is how much he asks about you.
Keep in mind
If he babbles on about himself and doesn’t seem interested in what you have going on, it’s not a great sign. I mean sure, he’s probably attracted to you. But he’s not invested in who you are as a person. These all point towards him being in it solely for himself. If he truly likes you, he’ll want to know about your upbringing, your job and your goals. But he might also want to know about your interests. Favorite TV shows, films, celebrities. Things of that nature. Do you remember the first date with your partner? What’s something you talked about?

They Feel Like a Hero Around You
Research has pointed towards a fascinating form of behavior in certain men. It’s something called the ‘hero instinct’. This is where men are attracted to women who see them as some kind of hero. I know what you’re thinking, “What kind of egomaniac is this guy?” There’s a little more to it than that. It is in men’s DNA to seek out somebody who makes them feel like a protector. It is simply an instinct that is hardwired into men’s brains. These are men who like being put in a position where they can do things for their significant other.
They want to be able to do favors and be there for you when you need it. This gives them a chance to prove their nobility. They are yours.
Acts Strange if A Guy Likes You
Yes, men may brag. They may go out of their way to seem heroic. They may also come off just plain weird. If he really likes you, expect him to start acting differently. This is especially noticeable with men you have known for a while. Have you ever been around some guy that doesn’t say anything? He just awkwardly stands there? Or if he’s talking, he’s saying all the wrong things? While this guy could use a crash course in the art of conversation, he may very well be scared out of his mind. It often sounds like this. They start with asking simple questions. How are you? What was your day like? Did you just get off work? But after that, it’s just a deep void of silence.
It’s like they’re aliens who haven’t learned any other words yet. Outside of their chit-chat, they may also look strange physically. If you pay attention, you’ll notice them sweating or trembling. Maybe they’re breathing a little harder than usual. It seems crazy to think about, but this is a lot of people’s reaction when they’re attracted to somebody.
He’s Making Eye Contact
“Can’t take my eyes off you” is not just a romantic line. There’s a lot of truth to it. When a guy’s got the hots for somebody, you’ll be able to tell just how cool and confident they are by their level of eye contact. The next time you’re around this guy, look out for these mannerisms. If he maintains eye contact while you’re speaking, he’s crazy about you and if he looks away when you catch him looking at you, chances are he was checking you out. If he tells a joke and then looks directly at you to see if you’re laughing, he really cares about what you think and is checking if you’re amused.
Don’t get me wrong, eye contact is not easy for everyone. Depending on your personality, too much eye contact is really uncomfortable. But this is only a possible sign.
Compliments, A Guy Likes You
Both men and women love their share of compliments. It’s like the fuel that keeps our confidence going. When a man is attracted to a woman, he taps into that need. This is why you’ll hear frequent compliments from certain men. Just be cautious. A lot of them don’t mean it. Let’s say you’re out with a group of friends. You have dressed up and are ready for a night on the town. The second he sees you, he may compliment how you look. This is often a superficial way to get your attention. You know exactly what he’s trying to do. If a guy genuinely cares about how you feel, he will compliment you on things you don’t even notice.
This includes comments about your personality. If the two of you are around other people and you don’t see him complimenting them, he probably likes you.
He’s Keep Messaging You
This is among the most obvious. You knew we’d have to talk about social media at one point or another. We’ve all had that one person in our lives who just won’t stop sliding into our DM’s. Sometimes it’s funny. Other times, it’s plain creepy. Another instant way to tell if a person has liked you is if they constantly message you. These can be anything from a standard “Hey” text, to a random smiley face, to a funny meme. It indicates that they can’t get you off their minds. I know it can get frustrating. But it’s up to you to decide how long you want to entertain their constant messaging. If it’s too much, let them know. You don’t want your work day interrupted by 20 messages from a person you hardly know.
Always Grooming Himself if a Guy Likes You
Guys will practice self-care regardless. But when there’s a girl they want to attract, they will often go the extra mile to look good. Whether it’s some extra product in your hair, more cologne, or fresh new clothes. If there’s a guy in your life who has been dressing nicer around you lately, this is probably a sign that he’s into you. Let’s say the two of you are in the same friends circle. Recently, you’ve realized he’s been smelling better and wearing the same newly ironed dress shirt. The only thing is, you’re hanging at a sports bar.
Who tries that hard to look good for Buffalo wings and watered down beer? These attempts to look presentable are done for you to see that they care about themselves and their appearance. If they have been dressing up, complimenting you, constantly making eye contact and acting nervous all at the same time, he really wants you to like him back.
