Or, you know, you could just ask.
He’s standing over there talking with his friends when you initially saw him. You believe he looked at you too with a look of interest, but perhaps you were fantasizing again. But no – you are certain the two of you made eye contact and then it broke.
Then you’re stuck with the question; how do I know if he likes me?
Should you walk up to him and say something? What’s the worst thing that could happen?
He can ignore you totally or tell you he’s not interested, but in the scheme of this wonderful thing called life, that’s just a temporary disappointment to a beautiful, intelligent woman like yourself. Still, all of that temporary discomfort can be avoided with a little knowledge.
It’s really not as complicated as some people make it out to be. In fact, all you have to do is be alert.
By being alert, you may see some of the basic ways that you can tell if a guy likes you.
Way 1: All you have to do is check out the rumor mill.
Has he been asking questions to learn more about you? Has he mentioned to his friends that he thinks you’re attractive? If your friends are his friends, he definitely wants you to know that he has his eye on you.
If he isn’t in the same social circle as you are, you’ll have to take a different approach.
Way 2: It can be in the way that he looks at you.
He may not say a word, but the way that he looks at you says it all. When you two make eye contact, does he smile before looking away?
Way 3: It certainly can’t be coincidence that he magically appears wherever you are.
He’s been noticing your schedule, and he wants to make sure that a day does not go by without catching a glance of you.
When your meetings start to pile up, he may start to blush if you mention the chance meetings to him. Playfully give him a hard time about it, but then definitely let him know that you’re interested in him as well.
These are just a few of the ways that you can tell if he truly is interested but afraid to speak up. You can help him out by being really nice to him and showing your interest. As soon as he feels comfortable enough around you, he’ll likely ask you out.
Now, if you don’t mind the possibility of temporary social discomfort, you can skip all this and just ask him. Better yet, you can skip asking him if he likes you and ask him if he wants to go out sometime. I think its fair to say if he likes you, he’ll say yes.
