The Top 15 Signs He Likes You More Than Just A Friend
1. He Talks To You Differently Than Everybody Else
Listen carefully to the way he talks to you and compare it to the way he talks to his other female friends.
Does he pay more attention in your conversations? Is he flirtier? Does he laugh more, or make more jokes, or treat you more warmly?
It’s a big sign he likes you more than a friend if he treats you differently than his other female friends – so watch for how he talks to you and compare it to how he talks to them.

2. He Remembers What You Like And Don’t Like
If he’s really good about remembering your preferences, it means that you’re important to him.
Some people will remember what toppings their friend likes on pizza, but it takes more than just a friendship to remember all the things they like and don’t like.
So if he’s got an extra impressive memory about the things you like and don’t like, it’s a big sign that his feelings for you aren’t strictly friendly.
3. He’s Always Calling And Texting You First
In a friendship, it’s usually pretty equal how much each person contacts the other.
If one friend is always the one who has to reach out to hang out or talk, it means that the friendship is probably imbalanced.
But if it’s a friendship between a man and a woman, and he’s the one always calling and reaching out to you – it’s because he has a strong desire to spend more time with you and keep talking to you.
And usually, that means that he thinks about you as more than just a friend.

4. He’s Super Curious About Your Life
For all of these signs, it helps to compare them to what you know about how he interacts with his other friends.
After all, some amount of curiosity about a friend is normal.
But when a man likes a woman, he becomes really curious about her life – not only because he wants to know more about her, but also because it gives him an excuse to ask more questions and keep talking to her.
So if he’s surprisingly curious about who you are, where you came from, and what your life is like, it’s a good sign that he’s not just being extra friendly – but that he’s actually interested.
5. He Doesn’t Call You His Friend
Listen carefully for how he introduces you or refers to you in a group.
Chances are, if he’s got feelings for you, he’s not going to say, “My friend [name].”
That’s because in his head he’s thinking about you as more than a friend, and it doesn’t feel right to him to say that you’re just his friend.

6. He Touches You A Lot
If he’s always finding excuses to touch you and make body contact with you, it’s a good bet that he’s interested in you.
Obviously, I’m not talking about him caressing you or touching you in a super intimate way – I think that’d be a pretty obvious clue about how he feels about you.
But if he’s always touching your shoulder when he makes you laugh, or touching your knee when he’s telling you something, or giving you hugs whenever he can find an excuse – it’s safe to say that he really likes touching you… because he thinks of you as more than a friend.
7. He Finds Excuses To Hang Out One On One
If he likes you more than a friend, he’s going to want to hang out with you alone more than he hangs out with you in groups.
So if he’s asking you to plans that would just be the two of you alone, or he’s always trying to get you away from a group and into a one on one hangout, it’s a very good sign that he’s interested in you and wants to be more than friends.

8. He Messages You A Lot On Social Media
A huge sign that a guy really likes you is if he’s always messaging you on social media – especially if he’s usually messaging you right when you come online.
That means that he’s watching (subconsciously or not) for when you come online, and sending you a message as soon as you do. That’s not the behavior of “just a friend” – that’s what a guy would do when he wants something more.

9. He Gives You Lots Of Compliments
This is another clue where it helps to look at how he treats other people.
If he’s the kind of person who’s always complimenting his friends and hands out tons of compliments, then this isn’t a huge sign he likes you more than a friend.
But if he rarely gives other people compliments, but showers them on you… it’s a big sign he might have feelings for you.
10. You Always Catch Him Looking At You
This sign has stayed the same for all time.
Both men and women look at the people they’re interested in. They look at them more than they look at anyone else – because it feels good to look at them.
So if you catch him staring at you and it happens more often than you’d expect, that’s a big sign that he wants to be more than friends.

11. He’s Nervous And Fidgety Around You
Watch his behavior when you’re not around.
If he’s normally a nervous or fidgety guy, then this sign isn’t going to mean much for your chances with him – he’s just acting normal.
But if he’s normally a confident guy who doesn’t really fidget a lot, only to get tongue tied, anxious, and fidgety around you – that’s a big sign that he’s into you and is nervous about screwing it up.

12. He Finds Excuses To Call And Text You All The Time
Friends obviously call and text each other – that’s what makes them friends.
So it’s up to you to determine whether he’s texting you a pretty normal, friendly amount… or he’s texting you a lot more than that.
One way to figure it out is to watch what he’s texting you about. If he’s texting to make plans, or about plans you’ve already made, that’s a pretty normal thing to text about.
But if he’s texting all the time just to say hi, or coming up with excuses to call and text you a lot more than you’d expect from a normal friend, that’s a huge sign he likes you.

13. He Makes Lots Of Eye Contact
People have varying levels of comfort with eye contact – some people are comfortable with it and others don’t really like it.
But one thing usually holds true – if a guy is making lots of eye contact with you when he’s talking to you, it means that he’s very focused on being in the moment with you and connecting with you.
A guy who really wants to connect with you is a guy that’s likely to have more than just friendly feelings towards you.

14. He Gets Jealous About You
This sign is super obvious – if he hears about your love life and responds in a jealous or negative way, it’s a strong sign he likes you.
This is also one of the signs that it’s the hardest to fake or conceal. The stronger his feelings for you, the stronger his reaction will be if you mention seeing someone else.

15. He Notices When You Change Something About Your Appearance
A guy who likes you is going to remember lots of little things about you without even trying – including exactly what you look like.
So if you change something about your appearance, whether it’s small or not so small, and he immediately notices – that’s a big giveaway sign that he thinks about you as more than a friend, and is interested in you.

I am reading this cause I have a Male friend I am Male to and I thought he was straight cause he is married to women but laity he has started to come on to me I was telling him about a date I went on with my girlfriend on the phone out of nowhere he says what’s wrong with me. I was shocked what should I do please help cause I’m weirded out. Know I dont talk to him but he still trying to contact me I am knot gay so what should I do.
This is definitely not a good sign, since he’s already married to someone , and although it’s normal to feel jealous when they like you, they should never say “What’s wrong with you?” Your friend is needy and desperate. If you want to keep the friendship, address the issue and tell him how you feel. If he is a good friend, he will understand, but give him some time. e should never force you to change your relationship. It’s not good to ignore him for too long, or he will think you don’t appreciate him.
It’s been a while and I hope thins are getting better for you.
