OR maybe you're completely oblivious and have no idea what's actually going on! Here are 9 giveaway clues he totally likes you:
1. He makes excuses to touch you
He offers to rub your back, he grabs your arm to change directions, and he sits nice and close whenever possible. Hugs, high-fives, knees touching under the table, elbow resting on your shoulder ... He uses ANY excuse to touch you.
2. In a crowd of people he chooses to talk to you
Of all the people he could be spending time with, he wants to be with you.
At social gatherings he may talk to other people, but somehow he always ends up by your side.
3. He walks close to you
Close enough that you notice. Sometimes your hands even brush.
4. He remembers things you've said
He asks you questions and cares what you have to say.
He randomly remembers things you've told him in the past and knows exactly where you want to go for lunch. He remembers the names of your siblings, foods you hate, and what you wore last Sunday.
5. He calls you his best friend
And without realizing it, he's yours.
6. He subtly asks what you want in a guy
Light conversations gradually turn to serious ones. You talk about your dating lives and what you each want for your future. Somehow you end up telling him all about your most awkward date, past relationships, and what you want in your future spouse. He knows your fears and insecurities and what drives you crazy about guys. He knows it all.
7. He talks trash about other guys
"Oh that guy you went out with last weekend - yeah, I don't think he's right for you."
"He seriously did that? What a loser."
"You think that guy is attractive? Really?!"
Jealousy. No one will ever be good enough for you.
He opens up his heart to you. His greatest fears, most embarrassing moments, childhood insecurities - he wants to tell you about them.
He's not afraid to share his weaknesses and personal challenges. He lets you see his nerdy hobbies. He talks about the things that matter the most to him, his family dynamics and his hopes and dreams. He trusts you.
9. He looks at you a second too long
When talking to you he looks straight into your eyes. His focus stays on you, just a second too long, and it catches you off guard.
Other times you catch him looking at you. When you make eye contact, he quickly looks away and keeps doing whatever he was doing. You slightly blush and try to calm your beating heart.
Maybe your thoughts and guesses are right - he does like you.
