Imagine that you really like someone, but you don’t know if they feel the same way about you. I bet that at least one time you’ve felt like you had a “moment” and ended up wondering if it was true or if it was all in your head.
How many times have you wondered, “Does he/she like me?” or “How do I know if he/she likes me?”
The truth is that women and men are different. The male and female brains are biologically different. For example, did you know that the center of emotional processing is much larger in women than in men? That is why women are more in touch with their emotions. And that’s why men can struggle to process their feelings, leading to serious commitment issues.
Here are some of the signs that will prove if someone really likes you:
You can say a LOT about what someone thinks and feels just by carefully following their body language. In fact, this is something most people don’t realize – while women have more than 50 signs which they use to show they’re attracted to a man, there are only about 10 signs that men use to show when they are attracted to a woman.
The smile, the long eye contact, the raising of the eyebrows when they look at you (this only takes a fraction of a second), a position oriented towards you when they speak, are all signs of attraction.
Moreover, men will take risks and try to impose their presence when they are around the girl they like. Men are inherently providers, so this is a primary way in which they unconsciously show their abilities and risks that they are willing to take on in a potential future relationship.
Touching someone and being touched during a conversation is a very important way to assess how interested and intimate the other person wants to be with you – and a great way to find out how they feel.
Guys who are interested in you will generally find excuses to touch you – such as touching your hand when laughing or hugging you for the most random reasons. At the same time, women resort to similar gestures. The “crossed legs” position is meant to touch your leg “accidentally” in the middle of the conversation.
Using their fingers to gently comb the hair and then placing it behind the ear is another trick women use to show that they are attracted to you.
He’s starting to take interest in the same things as you
When the other person “suddenly” starts to have the same passions as you, it is a clear sign that they like you. This is a great way of saying that they are trying to build a deeper connection with you.
Supposedly you told them to watch your favorite TV show. If it becomes their new favorite thing, especially by showing a sincere interest in the subject, that means a sincere interest in you, as well.
Friends are part of the equation
If they want to introduce you to their group of friends, it’s a major sign. It means that they like you, by trying to integrate you into the group of people they care about the most.
This proves that they want you to be part of their “team”. Watch their friends’ reaction, though. For example, if they start making subtle jokes about the “attraction” between the two of you, or if they smirk when you enter the room, that means that you are important.
Notice the small details: do his/her friends smile when they see you? If the answer to the question is yes, then he/she probably told them more about you. Trust your instincts.
Actions speak louder than words
The subconscious plays a major role. Often, when people are interested in someone, they try, without realizing it, to copy their actions. This “mirror effect” is a clear sign that they like you.
When you like someone, you know it. You daydream about what the next time you’ll meet will be like, instead on focusing on work. With the help of the signs above, you will now know when someone likes you, as well.
Can you tell when someone likes you?
