Does He Like Me? The Important Signs That He Is Really Into You


Love is a confusing game. It’s often hard to tell if a man is into you or if he’s simply being kind. Men give off many of the same signals whether they like you or not, making them difficult to read. There are a few tell-tale signs, however, to help you know undeniably that it’s you he’s after. Does he like me? Let’s find out.

He Doesn’t Check His Phone When With You

People seem to be constantly checking their phones these days. One flag that a guy is into you is when this habit suddenly stops. 

If he’s willing to set aside his phone for a bit and ignore work, friends, or family, it’s a sign that he wants to give you his undivided attention and get to know you better. His attention will be focused on things about you instead of his device.

He Behaves Differently Around You

If you know the guy well, then you may be able to notice changes in his behavior when you’re around. He may become more quiet in your presence, or become the loudest one in the room.

He is likely being more cautious about his behavior when you’re around, trying to get you to notice him or be impressed. He may do something that seems out of the ordinary or do something reckless to impress you. Friends are often great at identifying behavior that is out of the ordinary.

He Asks Lots of Questions

If a guy likes you, he’s going to want to know about you. He might ask questions that range from really deep like “do you believe in miracles?” to just a basic question like “how was your day?”

He may be asking you to show that he cares, or he may simply be asking for an excuse to talk to you. Either way, men who are interested often show it clearly by asking questions.

He Tries To Get Closer

He may lean in closer when he talks to you, change seats on the bus, or simply approach you to talk. If he’s trying to get closer, he’s trying to start a conversation and hit on you.

He Remembers Everything You Say

When a guy is into you, he’ll be a phenomenal listener. He might remember a funny story you told him weeks ago or remember small details like a birthday or favorite color. When a guy likes you, he’s going to try and remember everything you say, from the biggest to the smallest details.

If he’s recalling small facts from a conversation that took place days ago, he’s trying to get closer to you. He may bring up the facts to show off his memory or start a conversation. 

He Teases You

Teasing is one way that men flirt. And some do it a lot. Teasing is a way to strike up a conversation or get your attention. He might do it just to see you smile.

Teasing is a way to bond the 2 of you together, so that you can laugh together and enjoy some banter.

He Thinks of Ways to Get in Touch With You

Does he come up to you randomly in the bar to ask what you’re drinking? Or does he approach on the bus to ask the time? 

If a guy is looking for an excuse to talk to you, then he’s into you. 

Questions that seem silly or random are actually a well thought out plan to approach you. He may have noticed you from a distance and instantly thought of what he could say to you to get close.

What to Do When He’s Into You

Try not to overthink it. When you realize you’re the one he wants, a first date is a great step to get to know him better. It doesn’t mean that you’ll be walking down the aisle together any time soon, but instead focus on the present.
