Signs He’s Flirting With You:

1. You make him laugh

You know for sure you’ve never been much of a comedienne, but this guy can’t seem to stop laughing at all the silly jokes you’re making. Have you suddenly become funny, does he just have the same type of sense of humor, or is he laughing at everything you say because he likes you? There’s a chance he just thinks you’re very funny, but he is probably doing that flirty laugh thing, as well.

2. Does he blush?

Have you ever paid attention to how he reacts when you tease him back? Does he blush? Does he ever get red while talking to you, or asking you things – maybe personal ones? People, especially men, don’t tend to blush when they don’t like someone. A man who gets all red is not only adorable, but he’s flirting with you. I’ll tell you a secret – that’s how I clocked that my first boyfriend liked me!

3. Is he flirty with everyone?

What’s helpful is to determine whether he’s flirty with you, or if he just has a naturally flirty personality. Some people are just flirts and they can’t even tell when they’re doing it. So, to put that nagging feeling to rest, you should silently observe his behavior around other women. Is he as nice to them as he is to you? Does he open up to them the same way? Does he laugh around them and tease them, like he does with you? If that’s not his usual modus operandi, then you might just be special to him.

4. Does he touch you “accidentally”?

When we like someone, we want to touch them. We can’t help it; it’s like a magnet. So you find any excuse to touch them “accidentally”, or in any way that’s appropriate – does he do that to you? Keep your eyes peeled: does he touch your hand when he hands you a glass? Does he press his leg against yours when you sit next to each other? Does he ever unnecessarily put his hand on your back or waist to move past you, etc.? Don’t look now, but he’s flirting with you.

5. He shares personal details

Think back to your conversations – does he share things with you? Details from his personal life, stories from his childhood, information about his family, and things like that? That’s a pretty obvious sign that he would like to be close to you and he feels comfortable sharing such an intimate part of him with you. He is open with you and that can bring you closer, because he is establishing a different relationship with you than with everyone else. After all, only special people get to catch a glimpse behind the curtain.

6. Does he ask for your stuff?

Sure, you’ve got exquisite taste in movies, books, and music, but does it seem to anyone else like he’s always asking to borrow your stuff? And only yours? He might be trying to elevate his tastes, but the more likely explanation is that he is trying very hard to a) find an excuse to see you, and b) find some common ground you can talk about. After all, he has to discuss that movie he borrowed or that album and tell you how much he likes it. Of course, he could also just go online, but then he wouldn’t have a reason to see you…

7. He’s on his best behavior

Have you ever noticed him being especially gentlemanly? Does he open doors for you, and is he always ready to offer his coat at a moment’s notice when you’re cold? This is where you’ll have to pay attention and see if he does that for other women as well, in which case it’s just his style. But he may also be trying to “protect” you and be nice to you because he likes you a lot and this is his way of flirting.

8. He teases you

You know how boys tease and otherwise bother little girls they like on the playground? Let me tell you, they never grow out of it. Boys will always and forever tease the girls they like, even if they’re all adults. So, if he’s always playful around you, fake “mean”, pointing out cute stuff you do, ways in which you’re messy or childish in any way, he doesn’t actually think those are flaws; he thinks you’re adorable and he’s definitely being flirty. Otherwise, why would he be so interested in every aspect of your being?

9. Is he nervous?

People we like often make us nervous, and it’s pretty adorable. And if you look out for the signs, you may notice that he’s very fidgety around you. He might run his hands through his hair a bit too much, play with a pen, put his hands in his pockets only to take them out again, rub the side of his neck, etc. To the untrained eye, these might seem like just normal behaviors, but they betray a certain nervousness that’s really only present in men when they’re flirting with a woman they like. That would be you!

10. Does his job require him to be nice?

Another trap to look out for is paid flirts, essentially. When you work as a bartender, a waiter, a salesman – it is literally your job to be as nice and complimentary as possible to customers, in order to get tips or make a sale. And while he may genuinely be a good guy, and may even like you, it’s impossible to tell for sure until you get him outside of his working environment and see if his behavior changes. Is he still flirty with you? Good. Is he flirty with other ladies? No. Score!

11. He exaggerates how much you have in common

Lying to get someone to like you is never something I’d advocate, but he might get a pass on this one. Sometimes, we like someone so much, that we’re just eager to find something in common. He loves that you love running, so he enthusiastically nods in agreement – he likes it, too! Let’s go running together sometimes! If you do, you will realize that he probably hasn’t been running since his last gym class, but we can give that a pass, because it’s cute and he had good intentions.

12. He gives you things

You’re not at the stage where he outright gifts you romantic things just yet, so don’t expect a ring, but if he pays enough attention to give you small things he thinks you’d like or need, like a mug with your favorite TV character, a little plant pot for your desk, or even a pen because you’re always losing yours, you know he’s into you and this is one of the ways he’s letting you know.

13. He’s jealous of your male friends

If a guy likes you, he won’t like that you’re going out or hanging out with other men, but he can’t really say it outright. So, he’ll tease you about it. He’ll make fun of them, say they’re gay, mock their looks, and say petty things about them. That’s your undeniable sign that he is flirting with you, right there. It’s a form of teasing, sure, but it reveals some very interesting and real feelings.

14. He makes jokes about your love life

Does he ever tease you by calling other guys your boyfriend or husband? Does he make silly kissy faces or references a romantic relationship you may have with someone? That may seem casual, or even like he’s not interested at all – after all, he wouldn’t joke about you dating other guys if he was into you, right? But it’s the exact opposite; he’s trying to make it seem casual, but that betrays his desire to be the one who’s dating you.

15. He compliments you

A man who likes a woman will always find a way to give her compliments, no matter how subtle. In his head, he may be thinking about how hot you are and how much he likes you, but he can’t really say that to your face. So, he has to get subtle and flirty with it. Keep an eye out for comments about the way you smell, that you “look nice”, that he likes your outfit, or that he likes your hair done like that, etc. Compliments on your personality count, too, and they’re the best kind.

16. He makes eye contact

Eye contact is essential in establishing romantic relationships and interactions. People who like each other tend to stare adoringly into each other’s eyes, and rumor has it you can even “trick” the brain into falling in love with you if you maintain prolonged eye contact with someone. That might be exactly what he’s trying to do. Does he look into your eyes when talking to you? Catch your eye from across the room? Break eye contact with a little smile? Someone is being flirty!

17. What does his body language say?

As you may already know, you can tell a lot about a person from their body language. Especially when you’re into someone, your body will betray you. Observe his body and his movements next time you talk to him – does he turn towards you? Are his arms open, instead of just crossed, or any other guarded, defensive stance? Yes, you can definitely flirt with your body, and that’s exactly what he is doing.

18. Does he fuss with his appearance?

If he is, indeed, flirting with you, then he is hyper aware of his appearance and the way he looks to you. He wants to look good for you and he’s probably a bit worried about how you perceive him. So, maybe without even realizing it, he will fuss with his hair, smooth out his pants, make sure his shirt isn’t wrinkled, etc. He wants to look good when he’s flirting with you. Next time, make a comment about it or compliment his appearance; he’s probably going to blush.

19. Is his face honest, open, and welcoming?

This also falls under body language, but his face can also give you an indication of whether or not he likes you and if he’s flirting with you. Try to be subtle about it, but scan his face for biological indicators that he likes you – his lips might be open, his face can be a bit flushed, maybe his nostrils are flared, his eyebrows raised, and his eyes wide open.

20. He lowers his voice

A guy will want to seem as manly as possible around you, so if he’s flirting with you, chances are he will use some sort of small artifice, like lowering his voice to sound more grave and masculine. He wants to appear attractive and impress you, and if that’s not flirty, I don’t know what is.

    take note that every person is different and can flirt differently. if you really want to make sure if someone is flirting with you, look at their eyes because eyes don’t lie and can’t hide feelings!

  • sammie September 10, 2018, 1:42 pm

    when he teases you or jokes about you relationships or guys you’re seeing, he might be flirting with you. this means he likes you but is too afraid to ask you directly.

  • dina September 7, 2018, 11:48 am

    i love how this guy flirts with me. he teases me in a sweet way and i found it very cute! aside from constantly trying to impress me, he also loves hearing about what is going on with my life.

  • grace August 30, 2018, 4:19 pm

    hmmm, this is a good read. we all know that flirting can just be for fun. we should all be cautious because girls easily fall in love. take note that it doesn’t always mean that a man is looking to get on a relationship with you if he flirts with you. maybe he is just feeling good about himself or just being nice.

  • erlinda August 23, 2018, 10:40 pm

    exaggerating what you both have in common is really subtle but big sign he’s trying to flirt and get your attention. all other signs on this list though are really good too.

  • adriana August 22, 2018, 10:15 pm

    a guy who teases you a lot is definitely flirting. but all other signs listed here are true as well. i just like the thought of teasing because my boyfriend did that to get my attention and it worked for sure! =)

  • faith August 21, 2018, 5:51 pm

  • celyn August 8, 2018, 2:25 pm
