What Will A Guy Do If He Likes You?

If your guy doesn’t directly tell you that he likes you, you may be wondering how to tell if a guy likes you. It can be hard to figure out what he’s thinking and feeling, but here are some clues:

He Will Flirt With You

When a guy likes you, he will make sure to flirt with you and play along when flirting. He may even ask lots of questions about your life or career because he wants to learn as much as possible before getting closer to you.

He Will Start Spending More Time With You

If he’s trying to get closer with you, this is a good sign. He may even want to know what your schedule looks like or if there are any events coming up that you’re planning on going to. If you notice him showing up more than he previously did, it’s a clear sign that he’s interested in you.

He Will Act Different Around You

Has this guy’s attitude and energy changed around you? Perhaps you’ve noticed that he is a bit quiet when he speaks to you, or that he looks at you differently. If he starts acting awkward around you, it’s probably because he has feelings for you.

He may also act very outgoing around you as a way to impress you. He may also tell you that he likes spending time with you or will compliment your appearance.

He Will Text Or Call You More Often

He may even text or call you first if he’s interested in you. If your guy calls you more often, it could be because he likes what you have to say and doesn’t want the conversation to end. It can also mean that he feels comfortable talking with you on the phone rather than face-to-face, meaning that he is working up the courage to let you know that he likes you.

He Will Ask You Out On A Date

If he has been asking you out on dates, it’s a strong sign that his feelings for you are stronger than just a friendship. You won’t have to wonder whether or not he is interested in you, but you may want to consider whether or not he is a player who is currently involved with other women.

Since he is directly asking you out, don’t be shy and ask him about his relationship status and feelings.
