If you’re trying to dissect your crush’s actions, there are things his flirting moves can tell you about him. Every guy shows his affection in a different way. His personality is going to determine the way that he chooses to flirt with the girls he’s interested in. Here are some things his flirting moves can tell you about him and what he wants:
1. Pet Names
If he calls you by a specific, personalized nickname, that’s adorable! However, if he alternates between calling you ‘baby’ and ‘sweetie,’ without ever using your name, there could be a problem. If he flirts around, he uses those generic names in order to keep from calling you the wrong name. One of the things his flirting moves can tell you is if you’re his only girl, or if he’s trying to get with everyone he sees. Of course, he might just like the sound of the word ‘baby,’ so don’t jump to any conclusions, unless he shows multiple signs that he’s a player.
If he high fives you and teases you, he’s flirting in a friendly way. It’s important to be friends first, so he’s helping build a strong relationship. Whether he realizes it or not, his playfulness is helping relax you. If he flirts by using this fun, carefree method, it shows that he’s always willing to make you smile.
3. Hot Vs Pretty
Does he casually compliment your earrings or comment on how sexy your legs look? It’s important to realize the difference in compliments that you receive. Two people can tell you how great you look, but in very different ways. It’s a better sign to hear that he loves the way you look in your dress than that he loves how tightly it fits. The latter suggests that he’s only interested in your body, and isn’t afraid to say it.
4. Only when Alone
You have to be careful if he only flirts with you when the two of you are alone. He could just be shy, but he could be hiding something. If he treats you like everybody else when you’re in public, it might mean he doesn’t want anyone to think you’re involved. If he’s flirting with you in private, how many other girls does he flirt with in private? You might not be his only interest.
Touching is a common way to flirt, but you should pay attention to how he does it. It’s sweet for him to touch your arm or even leg as he’s telling a story. It’s not so sweet for him to try to cop a feel while you’re out in public. If he doesn’t know the time and place to get intimate, then you should have a talk with him, or simply walk away.
If he flirts with you one day and ignores you the next, he might not be all that interested in you. Notice when he pays the most attention to you. Does he only flirt when you’re wearing something gorgeous? If so, you don’t need him. A man who genuinely likes you will want to be around you all of the time, no matter what you’re wearing.
7. Friends do the Work
If he gets a friend to find out if you’re single, he’s too shy to figure it out himself. There’s nothing wrong with that, unless his friends continue to be involved. You don’t want to be with a guy who is too timid to ask you out himself. You can’t go on a date with him if he won’t speak up.
There are always multiple possible reasons behind a man’s actions, so your crush could be the exception to these rules. Do you currently like a certain guy? Does he flirt with you?
