Teen magazines are full of articles and quizzes to help girls determine if their crushes like them back. While those things are fun, they don’t always give an accurate picture of the situation. Love is complicated, especially among young people, but there are some telltale signs that you can watch to see if he likes you back!
Pay attention to body language
Body language experts help police identify suspects and dog trainers determine a dog’s personality. They can also help you get a better read on your love interest. If he’s constantly looking at you or leaning towards you with his whole body when you’re talking, these are good signs. Playful touches on the arms or shoulders also suggest that he’s looking to take things to the next level. Another hint is if he touches his hair a lot when you’re talking or looking at him. This signifies that he feels shy around you (because he likes you, perhaps?).
He approaches you differently
Maybe he’s always chatting with the girls but around you, he takes the time to listen and engage. Maybe he talks about more vulnerable things with you or he does some not-so-subtle bragging. These are all indicators that he’s trying to establish a deeper connection with you — one that he hopes will go somewhere romantic.
He takes an interest in your hobbies
Most guys don’t want to seem too interested in the activities or topics that girls focus on. But if he’s asking you questions about your interests and wants to learn more, it could be that he’s looking for a way to spend more time with you. It’s adorable, really!
Now that you know that he’s into you, what should you do? Ask him if he’d like to hang out! Reciprocate the eye contact and “accidental” touches. Make it clear that you’re ready to take things to the next level. Good luck!
