Deciding if you like a boy can be difficult. There are a few more frustrating things than wondering if the boy you really like is ever interested in you. Does he like you, or is he friendly? Does he think of you the way you think of him? When you fall in love or are simply attracted to someone there are always a lot of questions. Fortunately, there are many ways to tell if a boy likes you, and most of them are based solely on body language.
When boys are attracted to someone, they give a number of physical hints. Some of them are intentional, but most of them are completely subconscious. This means that you can often tell if a boy likes you or not before he or she is truly aware of you, and these signs are more pronounced as a boy likes you.
How to tell if you like a boy based on body language?
Below is a list of subtle and not-so-subtle hints that boys show when they are around someone they like. Each of these hints expresses interest, apprehension, or attraction. Some say all three. Alone, they mean little. Therefore, if you see only one or two of these traits, you should not take it as a sure sign that the person you think is interested in you. However, if you see that he often shows a number of these traits when you are around or with him, there is a good chance that he will really like you. If you continue to see these traits in a boy you like, you may want to show a little more interest in him. Boys are often more confused with us because of us.
Body language signals that he likes you
He laughs when he sees you. Girls as well as boys can’t help but laugh when they see someone they like. If it seems to light up when you go into the room, he may be interested in you. A friendly smile means that he only likes you as a friend, but it usually means something.
He faces you. People instinctively turn to what they are interested in. Even if you sit together and talk, and he is on the opposite side of the room, notice how he faces his body. If he seems to be confronting you often, or if his body is pointing at you, there is a good chance he is interested in you.
He looks at you often. When a boy likes you, he looks at you consciously and unconsciously to measure your reaction to things. He may also make eye contact with you when he speaks to you. Sometimes, a boy looks at you because it’s hard to tell if he’s interested in you, but because you are in his line of sight. One way is to record what he does as he looks at you. If he smiles or quickly turns away, you can bet he is looking at you.
His students have expanded. This is often hard to see, because you have to be near him to see. However, if you are sitting or standing together, consider that his students are larger than average. Some boys naturally have big or small students, and many show some difference when they look at someone they are attracted to.
He seems to be upset. Did you know that when you talk to a boy you like or when you are around him, you get nervous about ants? He may feel it too. Boys may be restless around a girl they like and we may be restless around them. Some of the pronounced signs of restlessness are restlessness, anxious looking around, and palpitations. While you may not always be able to do that when a boy is sweating, you will notice that he inadvertently rubs his pants on the side of his pants and dries them out.
He imitates you. When we like someone, we unknowingly tend to imitate them. We change our body to reflect the body of the person we like. If you notice that the boy you like is often positioning his body to reflect your body, it may be because he is interested in you. This is especially helpful in group situations when someone else is talking. Check to see if a boy is paying attention to you, try to cross your arms or touch your face. If he does, you know he’s paying more attention to you.
He seems to exaggerate small gestures. When we need to focus, we instinctively exaggerate small things. If you notice that he shows a small gesture such as adjusting his hat, straightening the collar, or some other unimportant detail, it may be because he is unknowingly trying to get your attention.
He touches his hair. Both boys and girls instinctively touch their hair or clothing when they are around a person. It is because of the underlying idea of looking attractive that it is often referred to as foreshadowing. This may just be a futile sign, but it means that he likes you and wants you to look as good as he wants you to.
His face touches a lot when he is around you. If you talk to a boy and he touches his face often, it means that he is attracted to you. Attraction tends to enhance our senses, most notably the sense of touch. This instinctively causes our faces to touch.
He touches you. When a boy really likes you, he will go out of his way to touch you. This can be as clear and innocent as rubbing your fingers when giving you something or touching your hand when talking to you. Some people naturally tend to touch others more often, while most people only touch you if they are very comfortable or very attracted to you. Especially when you are alone, if he seems to be out of his way to touch you, he is sure to like you.
It’s not always easy to tell if a boy likes you or not, but these signs and tips can give you a good place to start. If a boy you like shows you three or more of these signs often, he is more likely to like you.
