15 Signs The Man You Like Really Likes You Back.
Unless you’re a mind reader (in which case, hi, let’s get to know each other) it’s nearly impossible to fully know how someone feels about you.
we’ve tapped some relationship experts to give us the low-down on how you really know when someone’s interested in you.
Because sometimes, trained experts are actually more helpful than any advice your group chat can offer, my friends.
Right, this way for 15 signs…
1.he’s not afraid to double-text.
In the beginnings of any romance, texting twice in a row is terrifying for both parties. You don’t wanna come off too strong! But also, you low-key want to stay in constant contact.
If a guy’s really into you, he ditches the self-consciousness about double-texting, and honestly, thank god. Text and flirt to your heart’s content.
2.he wants you to meet his friends
Honestly, it can feel just as serious. If a guy is bringing you around to his friend group and talking his friends up to you, it’s a good sign he’s really into you
3.he doesn’t look at his phone when you’re hanging out.
If your guy manages to focus only on you the whole time you’re together, though, it’s a pretty good sign he really likes you. He’ll address whatever’s going on in his own manly group chat later—right now, he’s with you.
4.he wants to show you things he really likes!
Showing a person your favorite things is equal parts wanting to see if they’re also into those things, and wanting to show them more of yourself.
If he’s sharing things that he likes with you, he definitely likes you. It’s almost always as simple as that.
5.he’ll actually say the words “i miss you”
Just like you’re scared to actually say these words, so is he! A guy who really likes you, though, will just say it. Probably because he wants you to know he likes you, which he clearly does.
6.he wants to run errands with you
It’s sweet and cute when he asks if you want to go grab groceries with him and a good sign he just loves the idea of being around you—no matter what the situation is.
7.he *encourages* couple selfies
As in When you whip our your phone, front-facing camera already open in Instagram Stories, he pops in the frame to cheese alongside you, rather than hiding behind you like a scared toddler. A dude who’s into you doesn’t care whether all your followers see, not just your “close friends.”
8.he encourages you to do that one thing you’ve been wanting to try.
Maybe you want to train for a marathon. Maybe you want to go back to school. Whatever it is, he wants you to thrive.
9.he remembers small details or things you told him
Pay close attention to asses if someone is listening to you just to reply, or actively listening to you because they care. “The difference is hard to spot, but maybe he’s remembering details you mentioned previously or asking you deeper questions about what you just shared,” says relationship and intimacy coach Azaria Menezes.
10.he mirrors your body language
Body language is, like, everything when it comes to dating. So if your guy imitates your gestures or speech patterns, then that’s a subconscious sign that he’s interested in you!
11.he brings you to family gatherings and events
If he’s ready to talk to his mother about you, that’s a very good sign that he’s integrating you into his family or social circle.
12.he wants to see you during the day!
When a man is interested, he’ll make plans with you outside of the typical Friday night and booty call hours.
He’ll make plans to do afternoon activities like hiking, a picnic on the beach, or a coffee shop date because your company and personality appeal to him.
13.he’s down to plan vacations with you!
When you bring up some place you’ve always wanted to go or some thing you’ve always wanted to try, he responds with something like, “Yeah, we should definitely do that!” It’s subtle, but once you notice it, you notice it. Then that becomes a sign!
14.he puts at least a little care into what you do together
He’s trying to impress you by doing things like taking you to the park on a nice day or going for ice cream because ice cream is great and it’s fun to eat with someone you like.So You’re not just sitting on someone’s couch, eating takeout and watching TV.
15.he never says anything about “spending too much time together”
When someone likes you, they want to spend time with you.
Yes, all people need some alone time. But a guy who gets weird when you ask to hang out more than once in a week probably doesn’t like you, at least not in the way you like him.
When he’s into you, he doesn’t count how often you’re hanging out, and he certainly doesn’t give you grief for it.
