How To Know If a Guy Is Interested: These Subconscious Signs He Likes You Reveal Exactly How He Feels!

He loves me…he loves me not…

If you find yourself counting rose petals to find out if a guy likes you, don’t worry. We’ve all been there at one time or another. The thing is, when a guy likes you he makes it pretty obvious! It’s just that sometimes we get caught up in our own ideas of how things “should” be that we miss some of the most obvious signs.

Before you begin to say, “Why won’t he just be straightforward and say outright that he likes me?” put yourself in his shoes for a while. Maybe he’s shy, maybe he’s afraid of rejection. Maybe you are his coworker or his classmate and he doesn’t want to risk creating an awkward situation for the both of you by making his feelings known. Who knows? There are lots of plausible reasons he might not come right out and say he likes you.

How Do You Know Someone Likes You

If only there was a discrete formula that could decipher whether or not someone likes you. An equation. Two plus two equals four. If a guy says this or does that, you know he’s into you. For sure.

Instead, we have a whole world of unique individuals constantly trying to figure each other out. There’s timid guys, over-confident guys, and everything in between. Relationships evolve from friendship to romance, whether successfully or not. It seems like in the modern dating world, the rules change or blur on a daily basis. Our friends offer occasionally conflicting words of wisdom. Certain magazine columns leave you scratching your head with more questions than answers.

Does He Care About Me? 16 Signs That Guarantee He Really Does post image

How Do I Know If He Really Cares About Me?

“No one ever fell in love without being a little bit brave.” – Mario Tomasello

There’s always that little section in the “falling in love” portion of a relationship where you do a quick gut check. Maybe this guy seems too good to be true. Maybe you’ve had enough heartbreak in the past that you’re hesitant to fully let yourself fall again.

No one could blame you for wanting some certainty before you invest your time, energy, and heart into another person. People can be fickle, dishonest, and confusing. Unfortunately, love is a maddeningly mysterious emotion and state of being. There’s always going to be a certain amount of blind faith and guesswork.

At the same time, it’s only wise to observe your relationship to the best of your ability. Stay aware of the dynamics of your relationship. Consider the opinions of your loved ones, the people who want what’s best for you.

Dwelling on all the potential signs that a guy isn’t into you may seem like a bit of a downer. It’s definitely not the filter with which you want to view the person you’re crushing on.

Asking the right questions is what opens the gates for a deeper, more meaningful connection.

Is He Interested In Me? 16 Guaranteed Signs He’s Interested in You post image

We probably all have that one friend who, despite being shown all the right signs a guy likes her, remains uncertain. Maybe you, yourself, are that friend. It’s easy to second-guess yourself. Maybe he’s just really friendly! Maybe he’s flirty with everybody. We’ve all run these scenarios through our minds.

We’re also all likely familiar with the friend who assumes someone is into her, when in reality the evidence isn’t there. This situation is, of course, much worse. Even without a risky assumption like this, the world of romance is ripe with potential embarrassment and heartbreak.

The True Reasons Guys Don’t Text Back (And What to Do When He Doesn’t) post image

When He Doesn’t Text Back …

When I tell people I write about relationships for a living, their first question is always: “So, what’s the most common relationship question you get?” The clear winner to that is: “Why do guys take so long to text back?” or why they don’t text back at all or what their texts mean… always something in the realm of texting.

And I totally get it because I asked myself those very same questions in my single days … and it drove me crazy!

Why is he taking so long to write back?… Why haven’t I heard from him today, isn’t he thinking about me?… Why are his answers so short and vague, is he not into me anymore?…. Why did he initiate a conversation and then just disappear?

MORE: Ask a Guy – Why Didn’t He Text Back? 

Trust me, I’ve asked all the questions and have experienced the roller coaster of emotions that they produce. But why? Why do we get so wound up and stressed and anxious about texting?

There is a lot of bad texting advice out there. You’ll find plenty of scripts on what to say and when to say it, but what happens after? They don’t give you any real insight into how men feel about texting and what inspires (and de-inspires, if that’s a word!) a man to text back.

So here is the truth about why men don’t text back … and what you can do about it!

Liking a guy can be scary, especially if you don’t know where he stands. You think he’s interested but you aren’t totally sure. The only way to find out for certain is to ask him, but that would just be weird …what if you’re wrong and then can never face him again due to sheer embarrassment?

Does He Love Me? 9 Things He’ll Do If He Truly Loves You (So You Know) post image

How Do You Know He Loves You?

We are saturated with ideas about love everywhere we look, but what does love really look like?

We learn what love is supposed to be first from our families, and if they’re dysfunctional that’s not much help. Then we learn from young relationships with other kids who don’t know what they’re doing, either. Then we learn from movies, which spread a romanticized and unrealistic version of love … and it goes on and on.

Most of what we see is surface love, not the real deal. So many of us have our guards up high because of bad experiences and we can’t see past our walls. We focus on the bad signs instead of enjoying all the good we have.

At the same time, no one wants to be blindsided or taken advantage of or stay with someone who doesn’t actually love us, so the question is…

Why Do Men Look At Other Women? (What You Need to Know) post image

Why do men look at other women? It’s a question plaguing countless women.

I understand how hurtful it can be. You’re out with your guy, you’re having a nice time, and suddenly you notice his attention has shifted. You look around and see his eyes are fixed on a gorgeous girl walking nearby. And with that, the entire mood shifts.

You suddenly feel unattractive and low. You’re no longer having an enjoyable time with him, you just want to ring his neck. You may tell him outright that you’re upset, or you may go the passive-aggressive route and insist nothing is wrong when clearly something is. And with that, the evening takes a swift turn downhill.

30 Amazing Questions to Ask a Guy Over Text post image

Texting is our main mode of communication these days- it’s just the way it is, so much so that when someone actually calls you think there must be an emergency.

Asking the right questions can really open the gates for a deep, profound connection. But there is a huge difference between talking in person and chatting via text. When texting, you can’t really ask questions where answers will be long detailed stories, or where there are a lot of nuances.

Texting also isn’t the right forum to have a heavy or deep emotional conversation because a lot can get misinterpreted or lost in translation.

Are You Dating a Commitment-phobe? (Top Signs He’s Afraid of Commitment) post image

One of the biggest phobias women have when it comes to dating and relationships is dating a commitment-phobic man (see what I did there?). The fear is real and is what keeps our guard up and our eyes wide open for anything that looks like a bad sign.

Well here’s the good news. Most men are not commitment-phobes. I would say that term only applies to a teeny tiny portion of the male population and when a guy truly has that phobia, it will be obvious.

So what about the rest? What about the guy you were dating for a while who seemed super into you but just didn’t want to be “official?” What about the guy who is so sweet and attentive and always there for you, but immediately clams up and emotionally withdraws anytime you mention meeting his family or taking the next step in the relationship? What about the guy who always has a reason for not committing … he’s stressed at work … he wants to wait until he’s more financially stable … he’s having family issues … as soon as the busy season is over … as soon as summer is over … etc. etc.

MORE: 5 Major Signs He’ll Never Commit

Well look, some people do have real fears when it comes to commitment. Fears aren’t the same a phobias, fears can be abated with time. A phobia runs much deeper and can’t always be reasoned with.

Almost anyone who has been dating for a while has some level of fear when it comes to relationships. Maybe it’s because we’ve been hurt before, maybe it’s because we’re afraid of going through another breakup because we all know how brutal those can be, or maybe our trust has been battered too many times and we just can’t let our guards all the way down.

This is how to know if your guy truly is a commitment-phobe, or if he just has commitment fears.

12 Subtle Signs of Emotional Abuse in Your Relationship post image

The signs of physical abuse are pretty cut and dried because they always involve unwanted bodily contact or physical force of some kind that’s meant to harm or intimidate.

If he touches you physically in any way that harms or traumatizes you, it’s physical abuse. The most obvious example of physical abuse is hitting, but other forms of unwanted contact also apply, such as pushing, grabbing, kicking, pinching, restraining, and even unwanted sexual contact when you’ve said no or are being coerced into doing things with your body that you don’t want to. Physical abuse often starts with the use of less immediate violence meant to intimidate, such as reckless driving, throwing things, and hitting walls, but this is usually a prelude to more direct violence against you like hitting.

Emotional abuse takes a much more subtle form and isn’t so easy to detect. Since there isn’t physical evidence, we can rationalize and reframe experiences to fit the reality we want instead of the reality we have, keeping ourselves in a state of denial.
