This is how you can tell how he really feels about you!
You’d think that guys would be the type of people who are easy to read *and easy to tell if they like you*, but they’re pretty much the exact opposite. Guys don’t often like to show their emotions, and that can make things VERY difficult when you’re trying to figure out how they feel about you.
Not knowing whether or not a guy has a crush on you can even hurt your chances at a relationship if you’re into him, too. Both of you may just crush on each other for a long time, always too nervous to ask the other how they feel, and then miss out on the opportunity for a great relationship.
Why people try to hide their true feelings
You may think it’s really silly for people to hide how they feel about someone else – especially if that person might like them back. I agree, it’s completely ridiculous, but that’s how we are as humans. We hide how we feel as a means to protect ourselves.
We’re not necessarily protecting ourselves from harm, but rather, we protect ourselves from heartache. We’re all afraid of rejection, and in order to avoid that feeling, we just keep our feelings hidden so we never have to face it – even though we may miss out on something great.

20 ways to answer the question, “does he have a crush on me?”
If he’s been looking at you more, or you have a crush on him, chances are you’re wondering, “does he have a crush on me, too?” Not knowing is probably driving you nuts and making you re-think if you should ever go forward with your feelings.
If you really want to know if he has a crush on you, there are some very obvious signs – and even some not so obvious ones, too. This is how you can discover his true feelings and find out if he really has a crush on you!
#1 He looks at you often. When a guy has a crush on you, they basically just want to look at you all the time. That’s what you want to do to them, right? If you notice that whenever you look over at him he’s already looking at you – and probably looking away so you won’t notice – then he has a crush on you.

#2 He tries to talk to you a lot. This is a pretty obvious sign that a guy likes you. If he’s always the one initiating the conversations and coming up to you to talk, then he has a crush on you.
#3 He goes out of his way to be near you. If he doesn’t need to be walking in that general direction to get where he’s going, but does so anyway and you see him looking at you, it’s because he likes you. Guys don’t normally take the long way to anything. And if he’s doing so, it’s for a good reason. [Read: 9 quick ways to know if your crush is not into you]
#4 He asks you a lot of questions. Now, guys aren’t generally curious people. They don’t really care much what kind of cereal you eat in the morning – unless they like you. If you notice that he’s asking you all about your life and hobbies, you can stop asking the question, “does he have a crush on me?”
#5 He acts nervous when you’re around. Does he stutter or even just look really nervous whenever you happen to wander near him? If so, it’s because he has a crush on you and likes you so much that he can’t even keep his cool!
#6 He ignores you completely. Sometimes, guys are really immature and in order to hide the fact that he likes you, he ignores you completely. That, or he’s trying to play hard to get and ignores you in the hopes that you’ll get frustrated and run after him. [Read: How to know if he’s playing hard to get – or just playing you!]
#7 When you’re in a group, he’s always by your side. If you’re out with a group of friends and notice that every time you turn around, he’s right there, then it’s a sign that he has a crush on you. Being near you gives him the opportunity to overhear the things you like/dislike and it gives him the chance to talk to you.
#8 His body is always turned toward you. This is a more subtle sign that indicates that he’s into you. If you notice that his body is always facing you – even when he’s talking to someone else in the group – then he definitely likes you.
#9 He adds you on social media. This is simply so he can creep on your pictures and get a better idea of who you are. Pretty much everyone adds their crush on social media so they can keep up with their day-to-day lives as if they’re a part of it.
#10 He makes eye contact. If there’s one thing that gives away the fact that he has a crush on you, it’s that he makes a lot of prolonged eye contact. When he does this, he’s trying to connect with you on a deeper level than other people. [Read: 25 surefire signs that tell if a guy likes you for sure]
#11 He smiles a LOT. You make him happy! If he has a crush on you, and is smiling more around you than anyone else, then it just shows how happy you make him and how much he likes you.
#12 He laughs at all your jokes – even the bad ones. It’s a proven scientific fact that we find people we like to be funnier than other people. So if he’s laughing at all of your jokes and they’re horrible ones that even your friends tell you suck, then he definitely has a crush on you.
#13 He asks if you have a boyfriend. This is pretty much the only indicator you need to figure out if he has a crush on you. If he asks if you have a boyfriend, he wants to know because if you do, it means he has to give up. But if you don’t, you’re fair game for him! So girl, you can definitely stop asking, “does he have a crush on me?” [Read: Why isn’t he asking you out yet?! 17 reasons why]
#14 He points out that you have similar interests. Whenever you’re talking about your hobbies and he points out that he likes to do those same things, he likes you. By pointing out your similarities, he’s hoping to show you how compatible you two are.
#15 He agrees with pretty much everything you say. This is something that people have a hard time NOT doing when talking to their crush. If he’s agreeing with your views on life and pretty much everything else, he definitely likes you.
#16 He gets jealous. This is another big sign that he’s crushing on you BAD. If he gets jealous over you talking to another guy, then he definitely likes you and is not happy with someone else moving in on his territory. [Read: Does he really like you? 18 body language cues he just can’t hide]
#17 He tries to impress you. No matter where you are, if he’s talking himself up or even acting in a certain way – doing tricks and whatnot – and trying to impress you, then he definitely has a crush on you.
#18 He teases you. Teasing isn’t just a child’s way of showing that they like you, adults do it just the same. If he’s teasing you about little things that are fun and cute, then he has a crush on you.
#19 He compliments you. This one is a little tricky because guys can compliment you in some of the weirdest ways, so you may not even think it’s a compliment at all. If you notice that he even just says, “that was cool,” or something really low key, he has a crush on you.
#20 He says so. Sometimes guys can be very straightforward and us ladies don’t even notice it. If he says something like, “I like you, you’re cool,” then he 100% has a crush on you and you can’t miss it!
