Men can send mixed signals when they like a woman, and often you don’t even know they have a crush on you. Their body language and facial expressions can sometimes confuse you into thinking they hate you. Not every man is expressive, and as a result, he’ll often find it difficult to talk to you about his feelings and may show some confusing signs that he likes you.
If you want to know if he likes you or not, pay attention to how he acts around you. Does he hang on every word you say? Does he laugh out loud even when you didn’t say anything particularly funny? Does he get nervous when he’s around you? Does he try to sit next to you at every opportunity when you’re both out with friends?
Watch out for these confusing signs that he has a crush on you and might want a serious relationship with you.
10 Confusing Signs He Likes You And Wants To Be With You
1. He gets annoyed when you talk about other men.
If you are talking about or interested in other men and you notice him getting angry and upset, that is a sign that he is jealous. When you see his face tighten when you talk about another guy, you know it breaks his heart when he introduces you with another guy.
While he can pretend he doesn’t care, his feelings are plain to see and his body language always reveals his true feelings. If a guy isn’t romantically interested in you, then obviously he’s not going to give a damn about who you talk or hang out with. Getting angry and showing jealousy are important signs that he likes you and wants to be with you.
2. Whenever you’re around, his friends tease him about you.
If that happens, then it’s guaranteed that he likes you! Men usually tease each other the most when one of them has a crush on a woman. So when you find that his friends make fun of you whenever you are around him, then you know that he has a crush on you. When her jokes get through to him and he acts awkwardly, that reinforces the fact.
Even though he’s uncomfortable when his friends tease him about you, he never tries to stop them because deep down, he loves being connected to you.
3. He listens to every word you say and is interested in what you have to say to him.
When you speak, he listens very carefully instead of just pretending to listen. He is always interested in knowing you better and on a deeper level; who you are inside, how you think and perceive the world is important to him. Unlike other men who don’t care what you have to say, he’s always there when you have something to say.
And no matter what you’re talking about, he remembers every last detail. Is your standard order a Salted Caramel Frappuccino at Starbucks? He knows it. Is your favorite book “The Seven Husbands by Evelyn Hugo”? Be assured that he knows very well. He likes you very much, and that’s proof enough of his feelings for you.
4. Whenever you talk about what you like in a guy, he’s trying to live up to that ideal.
This is one of the most difficult ways to express his feelings for you and one of the most important signs that he likes you very much. If you talk about what you find attractive in a man, he will try to be that way with you because not only does he want you to fall for him, but he wants your approval too. Even if he isn’t like that, he will try to be like that. Only for you.
For example, if you tell him that you love it when a man pulls his sleeves up to his elbows, you’ll set him free the next time he sees you. If you tell him you like guys who have a good sense of humor, he will try to make you laugh at every opportunity.
5. He wants to find you whenever he can.
He’s always looking for reasons to see you, no matter how trivial his reasons may be. Did you borrow a spoon from him? He will show up at your house to “give him back”. Even if he lives across town, he’ll still want to call you and hang out because he was “in the neighborhood” (he wasn’t!). Seeing you means a lot to him, and that even means he comes up with adorable stupid reasons.
He will come up with all sorts of excuses to see you and spend time with you because he is totally infatuated with you. Whenever he has the opportunity, he rushes over to see your beautiful face!
6. He blushes when you ask him if he likes you or not.
Men are not known to get embarrassed that easily when it comes to love and relationships unless they are head over heels in love with someone. If you ask him directly if he feels something for you or not, not only does he blush, he blushes like a tomato and looks like he wants to be somewhere else but here.
No matter how much he likes you, putting that question in his face makes him feel exposed and awkward. So next time you want to know if a guy likes you or not, ask him outright. He will say a lot without saying much!
7. Attention-seeking behavior becomes his habit.
If he likes you, he will want to get your attention at every opportunity. He’s someone who hates going to the gym but suddenly he’s working out every day because he wants a hot body. He does everything he can to make you feel special whenever the opportunity presents itself. One of the most important signs that he likes you is when he does all the things that he thinks will win you over.
He just wants to get on well with you and hopes that you will reciprocate his feelings. His attention-seeking behavior is just a way to win your heart and make you realize how much he really cares about you.
8. He tries to help you in any way he can.
If you are in a difficult situation or need help, he is always there for you and goes with you through thick and thin. He never shys away from helping you, nor does he act selfishly in trying to solve your problem. He considers you one of his and will never let you go through anything negative alone.
Had a bad day at work? He’ll get you your favorite muffins. Had a fight with your best friend? He will be there for you and stand by your side as a conversation partner. Because he likes you, he will do anything to make you feel better.
9. He’s always making fun of you.
This may sound contradictory and hypocritical, but this is one of the most subtle signs that he likes you and has a crush on you. Men tend to make fun of the women they really like because they feel intimidated to open up about their true feelings. So this is their way of getting involved with you, but at the same time not revealing the feelings they have for you.
As immature as that may sound, it’s the truth. Next time “that guy” is teasing you, you should know, but don’t tell him you know. Make him think you still don’t know. *wink, wink*
10. You just know.
Gut feelings are rarely wrong, so if you can tell in your bones that he likes you, believe him. When your soul speaks to you, don’t try to refute it. You may have already noticed that he does all sorts of thoughtful things for you, and you can’t help but think there’s more to it than that. Sure, maybe he’s just a nice guy, but deep in your heart you know that’s not all.
If you feel this way, keep an eye out for more things he will do for you that no other man does. Trust your gut and see where it takes you; you never know, maybe it will be a nice trip.
If you recognize most or all of these signs of a man, then you can be sure that he really likes you. While these signs may seem confusing, the fact remains that he has a crush on you and dreams of a future with you!
