If there’s one thing guys aren’t made to be good at, it’s expressing their feelings. It is as if they have the inherent idea that being emotional and verbal about their own emotions is “unmanly” and contradicts the macho effect they are trying to project. We will leave them to their ideologies, but that does not mean that the boys are also devoid of feelings. They feel a lot and they feel real, and here we show you how to tell if a man is really interested in you.
You are often the butt of their jokes.
Nobody has anything weird to say about your beautiful hair, but they make fun of you incessantly for your crown of glory. He calls you cute mocking names, and he wants to be the only one to call you that. A guy who likes you but is afraid to show affection will do the exact opposite to “hide” how he feels. It sounds like high school, but many adults still fall for this trend.
He completely ignores you when his friends are around.
When he passed high school, some parts of your boy got stuck there and never left. His friends have a suspicion that he’s a bit (or a big crush on you) and doesn’t want them to make a big deal out of it, so he tries his best to stay hidden when you’re around. But notice that the quieter you get, your friends will stumble and behave even more, giving away your feelings.
He does all the old school gentleman stuff for you.
This is a classic, especially if you don’t have your friends doing this for you often. He holds the doors, pulls out chairs, and seems to always be there to offer to carry your things. This is a good sign. It means that he may not openly show you how much he likes you, but he is willing to let you know that he respects you and wants to do little things for you.
There is always something you want to know.
You tell him that you are a vet and all of a sudden he has a dog as a pet. You tell him that you are studying to be a doctor and he calls you at random times of the day to ask you about a certain random ailment. You are an environmentalist and you recently joined a group that supports community recycling. Now he can keep his PSPs and his basketball-loving friends, but why does he seem completely interested in what you do now?
Everything is in the small acts.
A guy who is interested in you will try to break down any barrier, even a physical one. When you speak, does he look you straight in the eye? Do you casually tuck your hair behind your ear? Does he often pat you lightly on the shoulder or touch your hand lightly when you speak?
He is afraid that you will see everything.
One of the most credible tricks to know if a guy likes you is, during a conversation, while looking at you, look him in the eye and keep your gaze fixed. You will feel that all your secrets are about to be discovered through the mirrors of your soul, so you will break that gaze and smile shyly. Try it.
He wants to be the friend of your friends.
Now why would a guy want to be friends with a girls only click? The point is, he wants to be friends with them so that he can use their advice to get to know you better and, at the same time, get their approval, so they can convince you that you like him too. But if all of his other tricks have worked for you, you don’t need your friends to let you know, do you?
