Guys love to sacrifice for their loved ones. They will try all their best to make you happy.

If your boyfriend often sacrifice his time, interest or resources just to make you happy, he really likes you.

I could remember what happened in those days in my secondary school, when we were writing our exams, a guy stood up and said to the teacher, “Sir! please I want to ease myself”.

The teacher permitted him and he went out. After one hour, when the exam was over, he came back. When his friends asked him why he stayed so long and even missed the examination? He told them that he went to see his girlfriend who was sick. That he promised to get her some drugs today. That he had to sacrifice his exam in other to save her life”.

The guy was foolish right? That is to tell you the extent guys can go for their loved ones. They are ready to give out everything they have just to sustain the friendship.

#2: He likes to know everything about you

#3: He helps or assist you always:

When a man likes you, he supports you. Anytime he sees you in a difficult situation, he will always come to help you out. It is a sign that shows he likes you.

Men believe in actions and not words. A man’s body language has a lot to say when it comes to love.

If he stares at you often, he has interest in you. If he looks at you straight in your eyes whenever you are talking, he is serious with you. Although, some guys are too shy to look straight at a woman they admire.

When you are together, look closely on how he position his body especially his legs. Does he narrow his feet towards you or your direction? If he does, he really admire you.

Most of the time he will always like to touch you accidentally. You may think it was a mistake not knowing that it was intentional.

#6:Ask his friends:

Another way on how to tell if a guy likes you is to ask his friends especially his closest friends. His friends can tell you how he feels about you but don’t ask them in his presence. Start the question very friendly. Don’t make it to be suspicious.

#7: His dressing code has something to say:

Every guy wants to look smart before every girl they admire. Although, guys don’t bother so much on their dressing, but when they fall in love, they will always want to look good. They will iron their cloths, wear their best shoe, apply perfume to smell good and so on.

#8: He will always try to talk to you:

If you are in a social gathering, he will like to sit closer to you or where you can see him. Not only that, he will always like to support your answers or opinion. If he is in charge of the meeting, he will ask for your opinion on certain issues bothering the house (group).

#9: He becomes jealous:

#11: He will not forget your birthday:

Another way to know that a guy likes you is that he will not forget your birthday. He will rather set a reminder for that particular date than to forget it at all.

On remembering your birthday, he will try his best to give you a gift.

Social media has been a platform where you meet different types of people.

When a guy likes you, he will search for you on the social media. If he can’t find you, he will ask you indirectly in other to connect you later. If he has not been close to you as a friend, he will try to know your name or listen to hear when a friend calls you by your name.

#14. He Protects You:

Men are protective when it comes to a woman they love. They will protect you from harms. Another way of protection can be verbally. They will always confront anyone who dares with you. Look very well and you will discover that they don’t do that to every girl they meet.

#15. Look straight into his eyes and Ask Him:

It is better to hear from a guy directly than to assume he likes you. How do you do that? Look straight into his eyes and ask him. If he is bold enough he will tell you how he feels about you, but if he is shy he will look away nervously.

If you discover that he is a shy guy, they are certain things to consider while dating a shy guy. See it Here. Although all men are not the same. The way Mr. B talks is not the same way Mr. A will behave also. They must be a difference.

#16. Take Note of His Eye Contact:

Does he stare or glance at you always. When you catch his eyes looking at you he tends to look away quickly. It is not ordinary. It shows he admires you.

You may be at the party or a restaurant, suddenly you noticed someone staring at you afar off only to look at him and discover that he has looked away.

One thing you should know is that men are attracted to what they see. When they see a woman they admire so much, all their eyes and attention focuses on her immediately. So, if you notice a guy looking at you in an unusual manner, note that he likes you.


In determining on how to tell if a guy likes you, consider the signs stated above. Every guy has a way of showing interest in a girl he likes. It can be by calling you on phone if he has your number, by showing concern, etc.

It is left for you to be sensitive as a woman. Study him and know the type of personality he has. He may be someone who don’t display his emotions or affection publicly but he secretly likes you. Ask him questions. If he is too shy, give him some time.

Notice some little sacrifices he makes for you. Don’t overlook them. They are the signs that shows he admires you. He may not be doing it for other girls.

One of the mistakes you girls make is that you take people who truly love you for granted and give room to those who are just there to deceive and dump you. Be confident when you notice that a guy likes you. Don’t be afraid to ask for help or opinion on that.
