In case you don’t know, some guys are too hard to understand when it comes to love especially when you’re dating a shy guy who finds it difficult to express his love for you. He would rather prefer starring at you afar or spend the whole day thinking about you without saying a word.

How to tell if a guy likes you: 16 Signs He admires you

#1: He Makes sacrifices for you:

One major sign that shows a guy likes you is through the number of sacrifices he makes for you.

Guys love to make sacrifices for girls they like. They will try all their best to make you happy.

If your boyfriend often sacrifices his time, interest or resources just to make you happy, he’s in love with 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 and is already late. He told them that he has to sacrifice his exam in other to save her life”. That is the power of love.

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 relationship.

#2: He will want to know everything about you

Another way to know if a guy likes you or not is the way he questions you.

Curiosity is natural in every man. When a man is falling in love with you, he will want to know everything about you.

When a guy begins to develop interest in you, he will like to know everything about you.

He will like to know about your family, interest, likes and dislikes, hobbies, etc.

Most of the time, these questions become irritating especially if you are not a sensitive woman.

He will like to know your background, friends, plans for the future, what makes you happy and so on. It is a sign that shows he likes you.

When a guy supports or assists you in almost everything you do, it is a sign of likeness.

When a guy likes you, he becomes a helping hand to you. He becomes your companion, your mentor and source of inspiration.

Anytime he sees you in a difficult situation, he will always come for your rescue. It is a sign that shows he likes you.

If he is your co-worker, he will always come around to know the areas he can assist you.

He will probably ask you questions like “where can I help you?, is there any way I can assist you? If he does these often, he likes you”.

If he is your soulmate or classmate, he will always come around to help you solve some questions that are difficult for you. They’re signs that shows they’re in love with you.

#5: Through His Body Language:

Another way to know if a guy likes you or not is through his body language.

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 positions his body especially his legs. Does he narrow his feet towards you or your direction? If he does, he really admires 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. So, you can figure out whether a man likes you through his body language.

#6:Ask his friends:

Another way to tell if a guy likes you is by asking his friends especially his closest friends.

His friends can tell you how he feels about you. If you can do this (ask his friends), then do it privately.

Make the conversation very friendly. Don’t make it look suspicious in their sight.

Although, guys don’t bother so much on their dressings. But when they fall in love, they will always want to look good. They will iron their clothes, wear their best shoe, apply perfume to smell good etc. so that they will look nice when they come around you.

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

When you are attracted to a guy, he will always like to start a conversation with you. It is a sign of likeness.

If you have him on social media as your friend, he will always like to chat you. If you meet him on the road, he will pretend to be lost or looking for a particular place. On the process, he will use the opportunity to ask you a question.

If you are in a social gathering, he will like to sit closer to you or sit where you can see him. Not only that, but he will also 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 gets jealous:

When a guy likes you he becomes jealous when he sees other men around you. Although some men don’t show that sign of jealousy in them. They will rather pretend to be fine.

When a guy is falling for you, he becomes jealous when he sees other guys around you because he likes you and wouldn’t love to lose you.

When a guy becomes jealous, he starts complaining (assuming you’re now he’s girlfriend). The reason is that he is no longer comfortable with the way other guys float around you. He’s insecure. He is just afraid of losing you.

Here are the best ways to deal with a jealous lover.

If you upload your pictures on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. he will comment and even react to it with a love emoji to show that he likes the post. It is a sign that shows a guy likes you secretly.

Undeniable Signs that he likes you

#11: He never forget your birthday:

Another way to tell if a guy secretly likes you is how often he remembers your birthday.

If he never forgets your birthday, then he has secret feelings for you. He will rather set a reminder for that particular date than to forget it at all.

Most time, he will be the first to wish you a happy birthday.

Hehehe! Guys can be so crazy when they like a girl right? It is natural in us (men).

How to Know if a guy likes You

#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 to 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. As a lady, consider these things while dating a shy guy.

Although all men are not the same. The way Mr B talks are not the same way Mr A does. They must be a difference.

#16. He Makes Eye Contact:

Another sign that shows a guy likes you is through 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 or he will continue looking at you and smile. It is not ordinary. It shows he admires you.

You may be in a 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. It simply means he’s attracted to you.

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.

A short story on signs he likes you

A girl once complained to her friends about a particular guy on Facebook who sent her a friend request which she accepted. After two weeks of becoming friends on Facebook, they began to chat.

After a week, the guy began to ask her so many questions about herself which she found so irritating but decided to answer some and ignored the rest.

On the day she celebrated her birthday, the guy took out his time to design one of her best Facebook pictures and posted it on her timeline with an inscription “Happy Birthday my Crush”. Not only that, but the guy had also been disturbing her ever since they became friends on Facebook.

From the short story above, it is very clear that the guy is secretly crushing on her but she was not sensitive enough to notice that.

So if a guy likes you, he will always like you to see him as the only man good for you. Not only that, but he would like to be with you always.


In determining 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 the 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 doesn’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 signs he likes 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. If you love him, go ahead and date him.
