Everyone has insecurities, especially when it comes to new relationships and being attracted to someone. It’s a totally natural feeling and nothing to worry about, it’s more than likely you’re over thinking things. Yet, it’s always nice to know if someone is feeling the same way as you and whilst it might not always seem obvious, there are ways to tell if he’s into you. Not everyone displays themselves so openly and talks about the way they’re feeling so sometimes you need a little push to realise that the guy you’re dating or seeing right now actually is attracted to you.
Before we jump into the big signs you should look out for to make sure he’s really into you, it’s important to address that not all of these signs will be displayed all of the time. It might even be the case that he only shows one or two, this doesn’t matter! Try not to get yourself wrapped up in these signs and think that they’re the only signs, he might not even do and say anything on this list. If you are really worried and think he might not be into you then communication is the key – talk to him about how you feel, and he will do the same. Guys love honesty and there is nothing more honest than explaining how you feel to him. Anyway, here are 16 signs that he might show if he really is into you…
1. He always has time for you
Time is a very precious thing, and everyone has a limited number of years to their life, a guy who always has time for you is definitely into you. Whether it’s only for a quick phone call on his lunch break or a long discussion at 2am, if you need him and he’s there then he cares about you. If he’s interested in you he wants to show you how much you mean to him so will make time for you whenever you need it. He might even turn up at your house when you’re feeling a little sad and need someone to talk to.
2. He loves to make you laugh and smile
And he’ll do anything to make sure you’re happy. That might be playfully tripping himself up after he’s said something stupid or even making a joke about something that you’ll find hilarious. Laughing is one of life’s simplicities and whilst you’re laughing all of your worries don’t exist. If the guy you like wants to make you smile and you both laugh together regularly then trust us when we say, it’s a great partnership and you have nothing to worry about.
3. He treats you differently to everyone else
He might not treat you like a princess straight away or even shower you with tons of gifts after all, relationships and dating aren’t down to how much money you can throw at someone. Guys will always treat their ladies with respect and you will be able to see how differently you’re treated to everyone else when you’re in their presence. You are the only woman he cares about, so he should treat you a little bit more special.
4. He remembers the smaller things
Perhaps it’s the earrings you mentioned months ago when you were shopping, or the birthday of your old pet. Guys take note of the smallest of things when they like someone so if your guy is always showing how much he knows when he’s interested – without a doubt.
5. He says nice things and compliments you
Again, this doesn’t have to happen every second of the day, but guys like to show how they feel with compliments and by showing affection, it’s more than likely that the guys who’re interested in you will be really nice to you and always tell you how beautiful you are, that’s just how it is.
6. He gets jealous and protective
When we’re talking about jealousy and being protective this isn’t being protective or jealous too much, there is a difference between being very protective and just being jealous when you’re talking to a guy. He won’t make a big deal out of it but you’ll be able to see he’s a little jealous. This is one of the easiest ways to see a guy is interested because he doesn’t want anyone else to take you from him and is jealous when you’re with someone else.
7. He teases you playfully
Possibly a guy’s most attractive quality is when he wants to tease and play with you, we aren’t talking mind games either (we hate them!) The guy that likes you will want to be playful and have quality time with you. Even if it’s watching a goofy movie on Netflix or playing with your hair whilst in bed, teasing maybe the most complex form of flirting but it works and definitely keeps you on your toes!
8. He may give you a nickname
Our favorite nicknames are ‘baby’, ‘cutie’ or even the good old ‘beautiful’. Keep any guy in your life that calls you a nickname like these, they’re always the guys worth keeping.
9. He’s always well-groomed
Appearance is everything and the way we look makes an impression on the people around us and that’s exactly how you can tell when a guy is interested in you. He makes an effort and is always well-groomed around you.
10. He contacts you first
It might be a cute morning text or phone call, a guy who is interested will always make the first move and contact you first when you two haven’t spoken in a while. This doesn’t mean to say you can’t contact him though!
11. He makes regular eye contact with you
A guy who’s interested will barely be able to take his eyes off you so eye contact is a key here and is a way to see how much he likes you. After all, you will be the only thing he thinks about and wants to look at.
12. He might be nervous
This is only really at the beginnings of your dating or relationship life as the more he is around you the less nervous he will be. Nerves are always an easy sign to spot when someone likes you, they want to impress and might be worried in case you don’t like them.
13. He pays attention to you
Guys who are interested want to show how nice they are, and the good ones will realise that paying attention to their lady is very important.
14. He’s honest and open about his feelings
A lot of guys aren’t honest and open 100 percent of the time about their feelings, they want to seem macho and masculine, so they don’t talk about love or even liking someone. However, you may come across a guy who is interested in you and is very open with it. Respect this by being honest and open back! If you do have a guy like this then treasure him for as long as you can.
Hopefully, these signs have helped you realise if he’s into you or if you’re better off on your own. Guys are very confusing beings and it’s totally understandable if you’re confused about him being interested in you. Just go with the flow and try not to worry!
