How To Tell If A Guy Likes You – 12 Signs He’s Into You (and not wasting your time)!
How can you tell if a guy REALLY likes you? Dating is confusing and guys are even MORE confusing, especially these days when online dating and apps like Tinder have turned dating into the Wild Wild West. It’s a little crazy out there!
As a matchmaker and dating coach, I’ve worked with single men for a decade, and I have unique insight into how they date.
Did you know that some men will text you, call you, spend time with you and sleep with you even though they’re not interested in having a relationship with you? It’s true!
I know you don’t want to be THAT girl – the one he’s killing time with while he looks for someone he’s excited about. No way!
I don’t want you to waste time on the wrong guy ever again. Your time is too valuable and you deserve better.
So how can you tell if a guy likes you?
Here’s a checklist to help you figure out if the guy you’re dating is genuinely interested in having a relationship with YOU. If he’s doing all 12 of these things, the odds are he’s smitten. Here’s how to tell if a guy really likes you…
12 WAYS TO TELL IF A GUY LIKES YOU
1. He stays in touch every single day
When a guy likes you, he wants to hear your voice or see your name pop up in his text messages. Even on the days you don’t see each other, he checks in to say “hi” and let you know you’re on his mind.
2. He tells you what he likes about you
You don’t have to wonder if he likes you because he tells you that he does! He consistently pays you compliments. What a nice guy! : )
3. He calls when he says he’ll call
No more sitting by the phone waiting for him to call. He calls exactly when he says he will, so you don’t have to feel anxious. You know you can depend on him.
4. He asks to spend time with you (consistently and often)
A man who’s excited about you will do more than just text or call. He’ll make sure he spends lots of time with you on a regular basis (no matter how busy he is).
5. He asks you out in advance
You don’t have to sit around wondering if you’re going to see him this weekend. He asks you out in advance, and you’ve got a date on your calendar. If a guy really likes you, he’ll pin you down and make sure you’re on his calendar (instead of on some other guy’s calendar!)
6. He plans real dates
He doesn’t just ask you to hang out at his place (or yours) with Netflix and a pizza (although that’s fun once in a while). He plans real dates (like dinner, drinks, theater, museums, hikes, day trips and more) because he wants to have fun with you!
7. He makes an effort
When a guy likes you, he makes an effort! He texts, calls, plans dates, picks you up and picks up the check. He doesn’t mind working a little harder because he feels you’re worth the effort.
8. He doesn’t make you feel anxious (at all)
He makes you feel “comfortable”, and you can be yourself around him. You never have to worry about whether or not you’ll hear from him because he’s consistent and makes you feel secure. You feel relaxed around him instead of anxious.
9. He goes out of his way to spend time with you (even when he’s busy)
He doesn’t give you a lame excuse for why he can’t see you this week. Even if work is crazy, he’s got errands or he’s got a marathon to train for, he finds time for you. He makes sure he sees you no matter what else is going on in his life because he cares about you and enjoys being with you.
10. He introduces you to his peeps
He wants his friends (and eventually his family) to meet you! And he wants to see how you get a long with the people in his life because he’s figuring out if you’re a long-term fit.
11. He’s fine waiting to have sex
When a man really likes you, he’ll wait. Even though he’s attracted to you and is dying to “get busy”, he respects your boundaries and waits until you’re ready (which should be AFTER he asks you to be his girlfriend).
12. He asks you to be exclusive and date only him
After the two of you have been dating for a while, he asks you to be exclusive. He wants you to be his girlfriend and stop dating other men (and if he’s doing all of the above, I hope you’ll say “yes”!).
In this time of dating-overload-and-too-many-options, men don’t really have to work very hard to find a date. But to find LOVE, they’ll happily make an effort.
So stop listening to what men say and start watching what they DO!
Stop worrying and wondering if the guy you’re dating really likes you!
Use this checklist to tell if he’s into you. If the guy you’re dating does all of the things on this list, he’s probably a keeper who’s excited about you!
And you soooo deserve a guy like that!
