So, if you do find out that he does this a lot, please be empathetic.
He’ll come around.
As you take time to know each other well, he’ll open up to you and may likely tell you the reasons behind his mood swings.
2) Have an In-Person Conversation
Mixed signals are quite frustrating to deal with anytime.
The surest method of clearing the air is having a conversation in person.
Avoid texting as you may misunderstand the tone he uses or read too much meaning into what he says.
While face-to-face conversations can leave you feeling vulnerable, it’s an excellent method of communication.
If the guy likes you and you think there’s a potential for something great, then it is good to have that conversation about his mixed signals.
3) He Always Maintains a Deep Eye Contact
If the guy you are talking to maintains consistent eye contact, then he probably likes you.
However, remember that there is a thin line between staring and deep eye contact. So, make sure that his eye contact is mutual and not impolite.
Interpreting The Different Types of Eye Contact
How a guy looks at you almost always indicates his feelings for you.
Below are a few descriptions of what various looks mean:
Intentional glance – The guy is genuinely interested, and his eyes will always be on you.
Fleeting glance – It could be that he’s shy or that the eye contact was made coincidentally. You can ignore this one as it probably wasn’t intentional.
Long glance – This is often a subtle glance. While the intentional glance may last for two seconds, the long glance lasts way longer. Guys will typically stop eye contact after a while, so if he’s still looking at you, then he finds you attractive.
Glancing twice – If the first eye contact weren’t received well, a guy who’s interested in you would gaze at you once more. It is certainly a powerful signal of interest.
The unending gaze – This gaze seems to last eternally, but it’s typically around five seconds or more. It is a crystal-clear indication of attraction. He’s likely trying to show you that he’s interested. What makes it even more blatant is when he’s gazing at you and he’s also smiling at the same time.
5) He Follows and Stalks Your Various Social Media Profiles
Many dating experts usually recommend watching body language, voice tone, eye contact, and various other cues to let you know if a guy is crushing on you.
However, since most people spend their time online nowadays, it is also necessary to key identify signals that someone likes you online on social media.
You may ask; Is he trying to get my attention on Facebook and if so, how do I know the cues?
Guys will often try communicating with you through tagging, direct messages, or tweeting, rather than phone calls or texting.
They can show support by shares, likes, and comments.
Here are other signs that he likes you based on what he does on social media:
Supports your pages – Whether you’re promoting a worthy cause online or running a business page, someone who’s interested in you will support you through liking, sharing, and commenting.
Responds to your stories – He always responds every time you post an IG story, which could show he’s looking for any excuse to ask you some funny questions.
Frequent direct messages – Sending many direct messages is a great alternative to texting, especially if you haven’t yet given him your number.
Constant tagging – Tagging is a subtle indication that he likes you, particularly if he tags you specifically in things that only apply to you.
Liking your pictures – He likes all your photos, including those from ages ago. It means he scrolled quite far back to look at your photos.
Commenting on your status – He can even comment on your status when they don’t necessarily involve him.
The fact that he looked up your details and added you on his social media profiles shows he’s likely into you.
It’s also a fantastic first step towards getting acquainted with you.
6) He Loves Teasing You
Playful and lighthearted teasing are excellent indications that a man is interested in you.
Most guys would never try to tease a lady if he didn’t like her or isn’t a close friend.
Teasing usually helps to alleviate that initial romantic anxiety. A relationship is a lot scarier than most people admit.
Cracking a few jokes and teasing helps guys calm their nerves down when approaching someone they are interested in.
Do you remember how little boys used to pull your hair in kindergarten?
Well, they were doing that to get your attention.
That’s how long guys have been teasing girls.
A study on social teasing found that it might be a way of indirectly showing closeness and affection.
Participants in that survey said that they teased their friends as a way of showing how much they appreciated them and felt safe being around them.
How Guys Tease Girls They Like
He likes mocking you – He lightheartedly mimics you or mocks you to get you to laugh
He always disagrees – He loves joking around and seeing you become passionate once he disagrees with what you’re trying to say.
He gives you a funny nickname – He playfully gives you an amusing nickname
Likes to tickle you – In some cases, teasing can become physical. He may try tickling or poking you, which is fundamentally a way of touching you.
Jokingly make some accusations – He may accuse you of having a deep conversation with another guy. All he’s trying to do is tease you to find out if you have another love bird in your life – don’t fall for it.
7) He Wants Your Number
One transparent and obvious sign that he’s into you but shy to tell you is asking for your contact details.
He wants to call you and possibly ask you for a date later (if/when he’s got the balls to do so).
Nevertheless, you must be careful not to give your numbers to players who like getting in-and-out (if you know what I mean).
To such guys, getting a girl to give them their numbers is more of a game, rather than an honest interest.
They only text you when they want to…, like late Friday nights.
You want always to keep your distance from these guys.
Also, if the guy doesn’t call or text after getting your number, then he likely isn’t into you that much.
But hey, shy guys do take a hell of a time to get in touch with a girl they like. So have this in mind.
A study showed that when men initiate contact based on booty calls, then they’re not invested or keen about creating a lasting, meaningful relationship.
Also take note of the amount of time he takes to respond to your texts. Relationship experts say that fast response time signifies attraction.
Remember that the goal of giving out your number is a possible date in the future. The guy could ask you to meet up again.
So, you should ensure you’re giving out your number to someone you like and wouldn’t mind going on a date with.

15) He Isn’t Interested in Checking Out Other Girls
No need to deny it!
Every other guy frequently checks out girls.
So, why would he be the exception?
Make an inquiry, and if you’re just a friend, he will have no problem telling you how hot that girl at the bus stop looks.
But if he brushes away that line of thought, then know that there’s another side to the story. Test the waters, and ask him if he’s interested in anyone.
From there, you should comfortably be in a position to draw your conclusion.
Trust your gut.
Have you ever caught him looking at you or staring back when you pass each other?
It’s a clear indication he’s into you.
16) He’s Eager to Assist You
If you notice that each time you need his assistance, he goes to great lengths to make sure that he finds a solution to your problem, then he likes you for sure.
In fact, he will not mind helping you with the most tedious or boring work so long as it leaves you with a smile.
This means you’re more than a friend to him.
It doesn’t take him much time to figure out if you’re troubled without you having to tell him.
This awareness is a classic sign that he has done his homework about you.
Chances are he may have gathered the info from your friends or he might be stalking your social media profiles.
Or better still, you might have been in the dark about his attraction for you for a long ass time probably because he’s done a good job in hiding his feelings.
If that’s the case, you have to appreciate the interest, the effort, and the time taken in getting to know you.
Also, he’ll find an excuse to help you with something just to be close to you even if you did not raise the alarm.
Is he calling you all the time trying to find out how you’re doing?
If you’re getting such signals, probably he’s only looking for an opening to talk to you—this is particularly true if he’s already aware that you’re fine.
On the other hand, if he stays longer on the phone whenever he calls you, then you’re golden.
17) He Always Compliments You
What’s a better way to know someone has a crush on you than through compliments?
If a guy likes you but is shy to admit it, he’ll waste no opportunity to acknowledge your looks, personality, dress code, anything else you can possibly think of!
It’s an excellent way to send you the right signals.
And it does not necessarily matter what you might have done to earn the compliments.
If that happens; he likes you, period!
And while at it, you might also keenly note how he does it; is he leaning towards you when passing the endearments?
That’s another tell-tale sign he is interested in you!
18) He Never Stops Chatting
How long does it take him to message the minute you’re online?
Another thing to take into account is how he interacts with you and how long he can hold a conversation with you.
What direction does the chat take?
Does it become flirtatious?
If it does, there is no denying that you’re more than a friend.
Does he promptly respond to your messages?
If he does, then he definitely fancies you. The instant response shows he doesn’t take you for granted.
19) He Stops Using His Phone Around You
Phones are quite addictive, and that is part of their inherent design.
Although there are multiple benefits of using smartphones, a huge limitation is that they can affect interpersonal relationships.
When a person is too plugged into his device(s), then it means he’s not present at that moment.
So, it’s a pretty massive sign that he likes you if he stops checking his phone every time you’re around.
It means that he’s now giving you undivided attention.
He might also use some of the information you shared with him when asking follow up questions.
If he values you more than the digital world on his phone, then he clearly likes you.
Any guy that easily becomes distracted by his phone when having a conversation doesn’t enjoy having that discussion in the first place.
20) He Uses A More Masculine Body Language Around You
A guy that likes you but is trying to hide it will often try to show you that he’s an alpha male. He’ll want you to know that he is a leader and that he can easily cater to all your needs.
This is one of the weird things guys do if they are interested in you especially alpha males.
Alpha males are considered to be assertive, protectors, curious, physically strong, dominant, and courageous.
The alpha male usually:
Moves with purpose
Holds a strong and confident eye contact in all his interactions
Has a spread-out and relaxed posture
Sits and walks with a confident posture
Soon you’ll discover that you’re mirroring their movements.
It will develop over time, but you’ll be subconsciously mimicking their movements due to your closeness.
Since alpha males live for themselves, they don’t experience feelings of dependency and neediness in their relationships.
It means that he knows his worth, and he has a strong social life.
He takes care of his needs first, and that enables him to act with you more genuinely and honestly if he likes you.
How to deal with an alpha male;
Never chase since if he’s interested, he will do his best to reach out to you
Always let him take the first initiative as alpha guys like taking the lead across all areas of their lives
Keep him eager and wanting more to ensure he always remembers you
Respond with enthusiasm or act impressed once he contacts you
Genuinely praise him
Dress well as he’ll also likely be very well dressed
Recent surveys have shown that alpha males like independent women that aren’t too dominating.
So, be ready to bring out your feminine side as well if you want to attract those super masculine guys.
21) He Discusses His Future Plans
I know this isn’t supposed to be in this article but there are many guys who are so open about their future goals that they don’t mind revealing them to just about anyone who is interested in listening.
So if he discusses his future plans with you, he MIGHT be interested in you but don’t want to admit it just yet.
If he does this repeatedly, then he’s gradually moving beyond hiding his feelings.
This is something to watch out for!
It’s one of the most obvious signs a guy likes you.
