Maybe there’s a guy in your life who’s a friend, or you just started dating him, and you find yourself wondering, does he like me? In this article, I’ll be sharing with you the undeniable signs that he likes you.

Because there’s a difference between a guy who’s just being nice and a guy who’s attracted to you.

Chances are you’re here because you like this guy back, and you want to know how he feels about you.

The great news is, there are some obvious signs that a guy will drop (often unintentionally) when he likes you.

So, before you allow yourself to fall for him or overanalyze the situation, check out these signs that he likes you.

27 Undeniable signs he likes you.

1. You can feel his eyes on you.

Do you feel his eyes on you often, but every time you look at him, he quickly looks the other way?

Maybe you’ve even caught him out once or twice. Or perhaps you haven’t, but you have this feeling that his eyes are never far away from you.

When a man is interested in a woman, he will naturally turn his attention to her, often without realizing he’s doing it.

2. He smiles at you a lot.

Some people are just friendly and will smile a lot at everyone, friends and strangers alike.

But one of the undeniable signs he likes you is the way he smiles at you. It’s more than just an ordinary smile, and kind of like a goofy grin!

He’ll look like a kid in a candy store, totally wide-eyed and besotted.

When he has this kind of smile on his face, and it extends up into his eyes, chances are good he likes you.

3. Undeniable signs he likes you: He flirts with you.

This might sound like an obvious sign, but flirting isn’t always obvious or in your face. It can be incredibly subtle and easy to miss if you’re not looking for it.

So the next time you’re with him, pay close attention to what he says and does around you. Keep an eye out for any signs of subtle flirting. Things like playful teasing, standing or sitting close to you, and making an excuse to touch you are all big hints!

He’s probably testing the waters to see how you respond before he turns it up a notch.

4. He treats you like a lady.

Does this guy always open the door for you and let you go first?

Does he insist on carrying your bag when it’s heavy?

And does he pull your chair out for you wherever you’re in a restaurant?

These are signs he’s a true gent. He wants to take care of you and make sure you’re okay at all times.

Most guys will only make this a priority if they feel protective over you, which signifies they either love you as a friend or something a little more.

5. He doesn’t check his phone when he’s with you.

We live in an age where we’re all glued to our mobile phones. They’re like an extension of our hands at this point!

So, if he is not picking up his phone to check his messages or emails every ten minutes when he’s with you, that’s a strong indication he likes you.

It means he finds you more interesting and important than his phone. His attention is firmly on you. He’s listening to everything you say because it matters to him, and he wants to keep the conversation going as long as possible.

This is one of those undeniable signs he likes you.

6. He asks you questions.

When a guy is into you, he wants to know EVERYTHING about you.

That means he’ll probably ask you lots of questions and not just about superficial things. He’ll go deeper than that and find out your deepest dreams and fears and passions.

On top of that, he seems genuinely interested in hearing your answers.

7. He really listens when you’re talking.

There’s a difference between hearing what someone says and actively listening to a person when they’re talking.

When someone is actively listening, they are totally focused on you. They give you their undivided attention. And they’re not butting in or interrupting you or thinking about what they’re going to say in response.

This is what active listening is all about.

One of the undeniable signs he likes you is he not only listens but remembers pretty much everything you say. This only happens when you’re frequently on his mind!

8. He playfully teases you.

undeniable signs that he likes you

Do you remember when you were in school, and the boys would tease the girls they liked the most?

Let me share a secret with you—us guys don’t change a lot between then and now!

So, if he’s playfully teasing you and joking around a lot, it’s a strong sign he likes you and feels comfortable enough to share this kind of banter with you.

He won’t usually take it too far, and if he does overstep the line, he’s quick to apologize.

9. Undeniable signs he likes you: He is nervous in front of you.

Some guys are always a little nervous and shy around new people, especially women—even the ones they don’t like. And in this case, it can be difficult to spot the difference.

But if this guy is usually confident around everyone else but ends up blushing and fumbling around you, it’s probably because he likes you!

Nothing makes us more nervous than when we’re attracted to a woman and are yet to figure out if the feeling is mutual.

10. He texts you in the morning.

Late-night texts from guys to girls usually happen when they’re bored and horny.

But if a guy texts you in the morning, it’s because he’s thinking about you in a deeper way. It’s not about sex or hooking up. You’re one of the people he remembers first thing. He wants to check in with you and let him know he’s there.

Even if it’s just a short and sweet message, this is up there with the undeniable signs he likes you.

11. He tries to make you laugh.

Many studies have proven that humor is strongly linked to attraction.

And we are aware of this big time!

So, if he’s making cheesy jokes, sharing funny stories, and going out of his way to make you laugh, it could be because he’s trying to win you over with his wit.

12. He tries to maintain eye contact when you talk.

Eye contact helps strengthen intimacy and feelings of closeness between two people. This is why we tend to look deeply into the eyes of people we like and love. It’s a way to build an emotional connection.

Pupil dilation is also a strong sign of arousal.

Next time you’re together, pay attention to his eyes and where they go.

13. He makes you feel great when you’re around him.

Another one of the undeniable signs he likes you is he makes you feel special when you’re with him.

Think about how you feel when you spend time with this guy.

How do you feel in his company and after he leaves?

If he makes you feel good, chances are those are his intentions. He’s considered with what he says and does and goes out of his way to make you feel like you matter.

This is a sign of a quality man. If you want help meeting more guys like this, check out my little love steps.

14. He tries to impress you.

Does he share his successes and achievements with you?

Is he always talking about big adventures and goals he has for his life?

Either he wants to show off, or he’s trying to impress you, hoping it’ll capture your attention.

15. He asks your opinion on things.

If a guy cares about your opinion, it means he values what you think, and it may be because he likes you.

Does he ask for your opinion on clothes, his new hairstyle, or even a presentation he’s giving at work?

This could be a less direct way of trying to impress you or figuring out what you like and value. Both are likely signs he’s attracted to you.

16. He offers to help.

If a guy goes out of his way to help you when there’s nothing in it for him, it’s probably because he’s into you.

Maybe he offers to help you move apartments, or fix that flat tire on your car, or offers to give a ride somewhere.

He doesn’t mind because he’s doing something nice for you, and it gives him an excuse to spend more time with you!

He wants to invest time and energy in you because you’re important to him. Plus, he wants to show you he’s reliable and that you can count on him to be there for you.

17. He compliments you on something non-physical.

Physical compliments are easy. You tell a woman she looks hot, beautiful, gorgeous, insert-word-of-choice-here.

But if a guy compliments you on something non-physical, it’s a sure-fire sign that he likes you a lot.


Because he has to pay close attention to give you a genuine compliment that has nothing to do with your looks.

18. He mirrors what you do.

Body language is a huge giveaway when it comes to someone’s true feelings.

He might be saying one thing, but his body is probably giving him away.

If you find he often mirrors your body language when you’re together, it could be a subconscious display of attraction.

Does he lean in across the table when you do?

Does he rest his palm on his face within minutes of you doing it?

These little actions speak volumes about his feelings.

19. Undeniable signs he likes you: He finds reasons to touch.

undeniable signs that he likes you

This might be him hugging you, gently touching you on the arm or shoulder, or finding an excuse to touch your face or your hair. Not aggressively or uncomfortably, just in a friendly, subtle way.

If he’s finding excuses to get closer to you, it’s because he can’t get enough of you and wants to show you how he feels but isn’t ready to articulate it yet.

This is another one of those undeniable signs he likes you a lot.

20. He’s open and honest with you.

Does this guy open up to you and share his feelings?

Are you able to have deep, meaningful conversations with him?

Most guys will keep their emotions to themselves out of fear of appearing weak. So, if he feels comfortable enough to be open and honest with you, it’s because he wants you to know the real him.

And that means you’re special to him. He feels connected to you, and it’s more than just friends. He wouldn’t let just anyone in like this.

21. He’s there for you when you need him.

When you have a bad day, is he there to cheer you up and show you everything will be okay?

Does he come to your rescue when something goes wrong and you’re having a freakout?

Does he call you when you’re sick or bring you chicken noodle soup just because he wants to make sure you get better soon?

It’s like your problems and his problems. This is how people act in relationships. So this is a big sign he likes you and cares about you a lot.

22. He makes you a priority.

You’re not an option to him or a backup. He doesn’t bail on you or cancel plans last minute. He doesn’t give you maybes; he gives you definites.

This means you are someone he wants to make time and space for. There aren’t many people he will clear his schedule for, but you are one of them.

If he treats you like a priority, it’s because you are one. And a guy only does this when he deeply cares about you.

23. He always makes sure you’re safe.

He drives you home when it’s late or dark out, even if he’s busy or tired or your place is out of the way.

He asks you to text him when you get home after a big trip so that he knows you’re safe.

A guy who does little things like this is going out of his way to protect you, which is a strong indication that he likes you.

24. He introduces you to his friends.

A guy won’t introduce most girls he dates or hooks up with to his friends. He will only take this step when you mean something to him, and he feels proud to have you in his life.

He’s not trying to keep you a secret. This is a sign he wants the world to know about you, and he wants you to get to know the people he cares about.

Chances are he’s hoping you’ll stick around for the long haul.

25. He’s curious about your family.

A guy who likes you will be curious about all areas of your life, including your friends and family.

That means he asks about your parents and your siblings. He genuinely cares how they’re doing because he knows this affects you.

Plus, he’s probably secretly hoping he’ll meet them all one day (if he hasn’t already). He sees himself in your future, and this is another undeniable sign he likes you a lot.

26. He respects you.

When a guy genuinely likes a woman (and isn’t just looking to hookup or boost his ego), he will respect her.

That means he listens to your opinions and beliefs and respects them, even if they’re wildly different from his. He’s careful not to cross any boundaries or take advantage of you in any way.

27. He tells you he likes you!

Finally, the most obvious, undeniable of all signs that he likes you is him telling you he likes you!

When a guy is confident enough or simply can’t hold his feelings in any longer, he might blurt out how he really feels.

Chances are it wasn’t easy for him to come clean, so be kind and gentle with him if and when he does. His heart is on the line here.

Conclusion: So he likes me… what do I do now?

If you’re noticing a lot of these signs, you don’t need to rush into taking action.

If you know these feelings aren’t mutual, then be quick to let him down gently. Don’t drag it out or get his hopes up.

But if you do like him, don’t be afraid to let him know and give him some subtle signs in return. Next time he flirts with you, start flirting back. See where it goes. If you need some extra help, I’d love to walk you through it.

What have been the key giveaways for you in the past that a guy likes you? How long did it take before you figured it out?

27/27. Even says he likes me. Gives me a lot of his time and attention, but he is worried our political differences will be a compatibility issue (I’m fairly non-political, but he is very conservative political, my political leanings are just left of center). We are both dating other people, but give each other most of our emotional space. It’s a confusing space to be in. We’ve been on the fence for nearly a year (in a flirty friend-zone) but talk daily, all day. Go on dates with each other about once a month. Our first date was the same… Read more »

Just remember Katie Matie how he was talking to you and behaving while he was still married/ in another relationship. That is the same way you will be treated when it’s your turn to be cheated on after he gets tired of you. Honey you were not better than his girlfriend/ wife. You did not entice or steal this man away. You were just EASY. Stop chasing him and see what he does then cause I got the strong feeling you are chasing and ego stroking this man to death. He will replace you easily if you stopped and this… Read more »

He works apparently 7 days a week, I see him about 2 days a month for more than 2 hours at a time. We have been on 2 real dates since October. He claims he’s busy all the time but, I’ve been burned alot. We been together off and on cause we never see each other. He says it’s his career and can’t take days off and never has any off. I really like him but, don’t know what to do

I recently started exclusively seeing a guy. Among other things that show me he truly cares and respects me, he made time to call or text me a little before and after his 12hr day of military training. As Adam says, a guy that truly likes you will make you a priority and do whatever he can to make you feel happy and special. The guy you are talking about doesn’t seem to be making you a priority but you are making him one. You should see other people and show him you are worth more than the energy he… Read more »

He REALLY does like me, I know this and he fits all of these signs. However, he never wants to marry again (he’s been married twice) and I do want that one day (I was married 1x for 40 years). . What are we even doing? It’s a go nowhere situation. He will continue our relationship as it is forever, I suppose. But it’s not what I want long term. I have proposed he stop seeing each other (again, this is the 3rd time), but we are so crazy about each other. I’m so confused.
