Some guys don’t have the courage to tell you how much they like you. But they do try their best to make up for it in different ways, usually in their actions.Some guys are a less conscious that they do these things so it’s up to you to spot for these hints and telltales. Here are 20 different signs you need to spot to tell if a guy secretly likes you.
- He brings you everything you need.
Guys don’t usually get this sweet unless they’re your best friend, your boyfriend, or your brother. If one of your guy friends just happens to always give you what you need then he might secretly like you. This isn’t entirely conclusive as that guy might just be the generous type, so don’t get your hopes up immediately.
If you ever get into a situation like this and you would want to see if a guy likes you, try praising him about his timeliness and generosity towards you.
- He glances at you when you’re not looking.
Guys like to secretly look at girls all the time. The thrilling feeling of not being caught looking is something every guy enjoys. You, on the other hand, can’t see this or at least not just yet so you probably don’t have a clue if a guy likes you. I mean, when guys do this they are at least interested in you. So how do you catch that guy red-handed?
Ask your friends to see if any guy secretly keeps on looking at you when you’re together. Do this whenever you suspect that something seems fishy when you’re with that guy friend.Make your friends look out for frequent glares or a long stare from your guy friend. Let your friends accompany you for a while and see if they find anything. If they do, then prepare a secret signal which you will use to catch the guy looking at you.
Right as you catch the guy looking at you, tell him that you know he’s been doing it for a while and ask him if he secretly likes you.
- He immediately looks away when you catch him staring.
This one is a little bit of a giveaway and may not need the help of your friends if you manage to catch the guy looking at you. Guys that are shy try to avoid being caught when they are secretly looking at you.
Approach him immediately after catching him looking at you. Try to first know if there’s something wrong or why he was looking at you before you start asking how long he’s been doing it. Take this chance to get him to confess that he likes you. But if he’s just that shy then ask him directly if he’s been looking at you a lot because he’s interested in you. Chances are high that it is a yes.
- He knows your favorite stuff.
If a guy knows what your favorite stuff is without you telling him then he probably secretly likes you. Guys that remember what your favorite stuff is could also secretly like you, but they can also just be very close friends of yours as well. Guys that secretly like you might have asked a few of your friends about the things you like or they could have peeked into your social media profiles and looked for what you like to post about.
Catch him in the act by saying that you never told him any of your favorite stuff and watch as he makes random alibis.
- He sends you good morning / good night texts.
Chances are if he sends you a good morning or good night text every day then he probably secretly likes you a lot. Guys that are shy try to give their best effort without admitting they like you. They want you to notice their efforts without them being too obvious about it.
Tease him a bit by telling him how much you enjoy waking up to his texts then ask him if he likes you. He would probably have no choice but to admit it if he really likes you.
- He leans his body towards you.
Body language works well if you want to say something without actually saying anything. If he’s the kind of guy that secretly does this then he probably likes you but can’t express it with words. Watch out for how he often leans towards you voluntarily or involuntarily whenever you talk. It’s probably a sign he’s interested in knowing more about you.
Play along with his style and try to lean your body towards him as well whenever you talk. If he only leans towards you whenever he talks with someone then it’s a clear sign that he secretly likes you.
- He always sits beside you when he gets the chance.
This one needs a little bit more time to observe. Guys that always try to sit next to you show a sign of wanting to be able to interact a lot with you. They also try to box out their competitors when it comes to your attention. It’s just them literally trying to get close to you.
Try to always be the one seated first and see if he always chooses the seat right next to you. If he always chooses the seat next to you when there are other seats available then he probably secretly likes you.
- He always starts the conversations.
Whether he’s seated right beside you, talking to you over the phone, or sending you text messages, if he always is the one to start the conversations then he’s probably interested in you. Guys that secretly like you want to know more about you. They are interested in the things you like and the things you don’t like.
Start a conversation for once but focus on the topic of him possibly secretly liking someone to catch him. Ask him if he’s into someone right now and make him describe how the girl looks like or how the girl often behaves. Chances are he would try to hide it at first but reveal obvious clues as you progress in the discussion. If all the clues he drops points to you then you’re sure that he secretly likes you.
- He sometimes looks nervous when you’re with him.
Guys that are shy tend to get nervous when they are in a tense situation. If you want to catch him, you have to put him in the spotlight. Having just the two of you together would be ideal.
Try to get into a situation where you two look like you’re in an unofficial date then tell him how your situation looks like you’re really in a date. If he gets all fidgety, tell him to relax and ask what makes him nervous. He probably won’t admit that it’s because of you but if he looks nervous throughout your date then you bet he secretly likes you.
- He tries his best to tease you a lot.
Teasing is a guy’s childish tendencies to get the attention of someone he likes. If you see him teasing you a lot and if you’re the only one he teases that way then he probably secretly likes you.
Call him out for teasing you a lot if you want him to admit that he’s interested in you. Ask him why he’s annoying you all the time or get into an argument with him on how teasing is a childish way of getting a girl’s attention. Now is your chance to make him admit how much he secretly likes you
- He sometimes looks jealous when he sees you talking to other guys.
Guys that secretly like you tend to easily get jealous at how other guys can get real close to you. Getting your attention is a real competition for them but they know the truth that they’re just too shy to make the first move. Seeing you talk so interestedly with other guys makes them feel that they will lose their shot at you.
If you want to make your secret admirer admit his love for you, tease him a bit by trying to get real close to other guys. Watch his reactions and see how jealous he would get. Then go back to him and ask him why he has that jealous look on his face. Chances are when he is in that fight or flight situation he would have to admit how he really feels about you.
- He often tries to make you laugh.
If you ever find a guy that consciously tries to be funny when he’s around you then chances are he probably secretly likes you. Their way of showing their affection would most likely be to try and make you happy when you’re with them.
However this one isn’t as conclusive as the other signs. Some guys just try to be funny because they see someone sad. If a guy does this for you then he probably likes you but you won’t easily know if he likes you a lot.
- He prioritizes you over other things.
If a guy always gets an A for his effort for you for no clear reason at all, then I’m pretty sure he secretly likes you. Guys like these often are the first to respond when you’re in trouble like a knight in shining armor that doesn’t reveal himself. No matter how tight his schedule is, you probably are at the top of his priority list.
You don’t need any other proof to confirm that a guy secretly likes you if he always prioritizes you. Be thankful for how he always is there when you need him and respond properly to how he feels. It’s definitely your loss if you let an opportunity like this slip away.
- He smiles a lot when you’re with him.
Guys that secretly like you can’t hide how much they enjoy your presence. Being with you is probably one of the best things they’ve had in life. When you spot him smiling a lot whenever you’re with him, it’s probably a sign he likes you.
Try to put him in the hot seat and ask him why he seems so happy all the time. He would likely try to drop hints that it’s you who makes him smile that way.
- He playfully touches you.
Playful touches are one of the oldest tricks in the book of flirting. Guys that try to get your attention through flirty touches are sure to be interested in you. While these guys can get a little bit aggressive as compared to other shy guys, they are also the ones that are too timid to admit that they like you. They content themselves with flirting with you and catching your attention from time to time.
Ask them directly if you want to know the motive behind their playful flirting. Guys can’t deny they like you if they keep on playfully touching you every time.
- He comforts you when you’re sad.
Guys that comfort you when you’re sad definitely secretly like you. The problem is in knowing how deep the relationship they want to get into with you. Some guys just like you a lot so they’re always there for you as a friend while others do it to show the extra effort they can give you.
Making things clear with guys who comfort you can solve this problem. Let each other know how you feel for each other to avoid any misunderstanding. Guys that do this for you surely like you, but it’s always up to you to clarify how much these guys are into you.
- He visits you when you’re sick.
The sweet and extra effort guys give is a sure sign that they like you, especially when they know you need someone to be with. Friends usually do it because they’re your friends, but that extra effort sometimes is a sign that a guy secretly likes you.
This sign is also a little bit misleading sometimes. There are just some guys that are like a brother willing to help in times of need and there are those guys that want to enter into a relationship with you. Asking them to be upfront about their intentions is probably the best way to handle this issue so that you know what to expect from them.
- He gives you lots of attention.
The sweetest signs are also the most misleading signs of them all. Friends probably give you lots of attention so it’s hard to spot when guys secretly do more effort for you. If you do spot one, then be straightforward in asking him. There’s no point in playing games and guessing each other out if he’s serious about courting you.
These are just some signs you could spot to see if a guy secretly likes you. What happens next is totally up to your decisions. A word of caution,not every sign here is conclusive and requires your personal judgment to know if a guy truly secretly likes you. These signs are only meant to help you see the possibility that a guy likes you, but how you’re going to know ifhe likes you more than just a friendis for you to decide. Happy sign spotting!
