You’re in a tough situation.
You think a guy likes you. Your gut is telling you that he likes you. Your instincts are telling you that he likes you.
But he hasn’t said anything or made a move.
Does he really like you? Is he just too scared to admit it? Are all your instincts wrong and he actually doesn’t like you?
Don’t worry – I’ve got you covered.
I’m going to give you the biggest signs that he really likes you – even if he’s too scared to admit it, even if he’s too scared to say anything to you.
That way, you can figure out whether your instincts are right and he really is too scared to say anything, or whether he doesn’t have feelings for you after all.
Ready? Here we go:
How To Tell If A Guy Likes You And Is Just Too Scared To Say Anything
He Spends Lots Of Time Around You
Guys want to spend time around women they like. It’s just a fact of nature.
The whole reason that a guy starts to like a woman is because he feels good around her. Being around her makes him feel good, and so he wants to be around her more.
That’s like the fundamental aspect of liking someone.
Take The Quiz: Does He Like You?
So if he spends a lot of time around you – especially when he doesn’t have a particularly good excuse as to why he’s around you, it’s a pretty good sign that he likes you.
Obviously, use your judgment on this one. If you work together, it’s no wonder that he’s spending a lot of time around you – you work together.
But if he’s always showing up at places where he knows you’re going to be, and it happens a little more often than could just be a coincidence, then it’s a good sign that he’s into you.
He Makes An Extra Effort To Be Nice To You
This comes down to keeping an eye out as to whether he acts differently around you than he does around other women.
Even if he’s a little too scared to say anything to you, his behavior is going to reveal the truth. And if he likes you, that means that he’s going to go out of his way to do you favors and be nice to you.
So be on the lookout. Does he do little extra things for you that he doesn’t do for other people? Does he pick you up a coffee even without you asking? Offer to give you rides when he doesn’t do that for others? Go the extra mile for you without even really thinking about it?
If he does – that’s a pretty big sign that he’s interested.
He Looks At You A Lot But Breaks Eye Contact
It’s a known fact that if a guy likes you he’s going to steal glances at you a lot. That happens regardless of how shy he is… although it’s true that shy guys are more likely to gaze from afar than approach you directly.
So if he likes you, he’s not going to be able to resist sneaking glances at you – especially when you’re not looking.
If you catch him looking at you a lot but he always breaks eye contact when you look over, it’s a pretty big sign that he’s interested in you… but too scared to do anything about it.
You’re Pretty Sure He Likes You But He Won’t Make A Move
We covered this up top but it bears repeating.
You know the difference between wishing something was true and inventing reasons for it, and knowing deep in your gut and your instincts that it’s true.
Ask yourself the question: do you just want him to like you? Or are your instincts telling you that he almost definitely likes you.
If you just want him to like you, but he isn’t giving you any signs that he does and you’re telling yourself it’s because he’s ‘too scared’ – then he probably doesn’t like you.
But if your instincts and your gut are all telling you that he definitely likes you, and you just can’t figure out why he hasn’t made a move, then that’s a pretty good sign that he’s into you but too scared of rejection to do anything about it.
He Smiles A Lot When You’re Talking Together
I’ve covered this before but it bears repeating – guys like women who they feel good around. Who make them feel really nice and happy inside.
When you feel good – you smile! It’s the universal human reaction.
So if whenever you’re talking to him he smiles a lot – like a lot more than he normally does – that’s a pretty good sign that being around you makes him feel really good.
Which means that he likes you – even if he’s too scared to admit it.
He’s Nervous And Fidgety Around You
Same caveat applies to this one as all the others – if he’s a nervous and fidgety guy around everyone, then it doesn’t necessarily mean he likes you.
But if he’s normally a pretty relaxed dude, and when you’re around all of a sudden he clams up, seems pretty nervous, and fidgets, well…
Guys usually don’t get nervous for no reason. Obviously, if it only happens once he might be nervous about something else, but if it happens over and over… you’re the common denominator.
So if he starts fidgeting and acting nervous whenever you enter a room, or whenever he’s talking to you, that’s a pretty big sign.
He Jokes Around About Liking You
This is a classic shy guy move around a girl that he likes.
Guys who are afraid of rejection could feel the need to express their feelings in a way that doesn’t leave them open to rejection if you don’t reciprocate them.
That’s why lots of scared guys will make jokes about being together or joke about liking you – it’s a way to say how he really feels without opening himself up to being rejected.
If he makes lots of jokes centered around him liking you, that’s a pretty good sign that he’s interested.
Interested and just too much of a scaredy cat to do anything about it.
