Have you ever wondered if that nice guy that you have a crush on is flirting with you? Even if it’s quite hard to read body language at all times, there are a few ways that most men unconsciously and sometimes, even consciously, let you know that they like you. There are a lot of studies which show that most people are pretty awful at flirting, since 80% of people can identify when someone is not flirting with them but only 36% of men and 18% of women can tell when the other person is flirting. When you are attracted to someone, you usually pay attention to every little thing that they do or say to decipher what they really mean. Here are 7 obvious signs a guy is flirting with you that you should consider:
1. You Catch Him Staring
A guy who likes you and especially one who flirts with you will always look at you. Do you often catch him staring at you from across the room? Well, that’s a good sign! A guy who is interested in you will spend a lot of time talking to you or at least, staring at you. Their eyes will be wide open and very expressive throughout your entire conversation.
2. A Lovely Smile
A guy who always has a big lovely smile on his face every time he sees you may be interested in you. Does it seem like their eyes sparkle when they are talking to you or are they laughing and giggling throughout your entire conversation? If you like him too, just smile back and don’t play hard to get, because often this is a big turn off for most guys.
3. He is Trying to Impress You
A guy who is attracted to you will do everything in his power to impress you. He may even brag a little bit without realizing it. They just want to show you what a great catch they are and they are trying to get you to like them back. He will talk about the things he is good at and he will tell you more about his successes because he just wants to make you think he is special.
4. He is a Bit Nervous
Is that cute boy that you like a bit nervous or fidgety when he’s around you? Is he running his hands through his hair, is he playing with his pen or jiggling his leg around? Does he often blush when he’s talking to you? These are just signs that he is nervous and that he is trying to make a good impression because he likes you.
A guy who likes you will mirror your actions without even knowing it. This is another sign that he is flirting with you. It’s only natural to mirror someone we are interested in and this ranges from mirroring blink rates to mirroring their manner of speaking.
6. Hands on Hips
The next time you talk to that cute guy you like, pay attention to his hands. Does he put them on his hips or does he place his thumbs in the belt loops? If he does this often, then he is just trying to show you that he is confident and that he deserves your attention.
7. A Flirting Touch
Touching is a huge part of flirting. A guy who likes you will try to casually slip his arm around you or he might give you a hug or even a kiss on the cheek when he says goodbye. He will try to be subtle about it but he will try to touch you accidentally.
A guy who is interested in you will get excited when he finds out that you two have something in common, he will make fun of other guys you know, he will gently tease you without being mean and he will make suggestive comments.
