High school can be such a confusing time. You're at that awkward age when you're trying to figure out what it is that you want to do and just about getting to learn the intricacies of human relationships. At a time when falling for someone happens so easily that it feels like you are wearing your heart on your sleeve, imagine that you start getting all these mixed signals from a guy. Hot and cold. Cold and hot. And the oscillating just goes on and on.
And then you start to think―if you only knew how to read him. If you could only get into his mind and know exactly what he was thinking! Then there would be some clarity and you'd know for a fact whether there was anything there or whether you were simply beating yourself over something that is not even there. So then, how to find out whether the guy likes you or not? We're telling in the following article. Read this one through and through.
Signs to Know if he Likes You
As you'll grow up and meet more and more people, you'll find that reading certain behavior traits becomes easier, especially in the case of a crush. But in the meantime, let's help you get that pounding heart rate down and breathe normally again. Here are some signs that will clear it all out for you. You can even take this how to tell if a guy likes you quiz to know more in this direction.
The Eyes, The Eyes, and a Smile
The eyes say it all. Have you ever noticed? If you haven't, it's time you start. Observe him the next time over. Do his eyes make you feel comfortable and welcome or are they glazed over with indifference? The former sign screams 'I like you'. Then notice the smile. When he smiles after he sees you, even from all the way across the room, do his eyes light up and the smile travels all the way over to his eyes? Great sign. Then notice for something that almost always confirms that he likes you―freaky as it is, every time you look in his direction, there he is looking right back at you. When you like someone, you just want them to be near you at all times. I don't think that changes with age either and is one of the sure signs he likes you.
In the Body Language...
Such untapped potential here. You learn how to read his body language and you are set. We think we are so sleek with hiding our feelings and not letting anybody know, right? But the point is that you don't have to 'say' anything, your body language―the way you speak, behave and act―will make it clear to whoever is in doubt. What to look for in his body language? When you guys are together, check for these signs―he always faces you when you speak, he leans into you when talking and unconsciously blocks anyone else in your company. All these signs scream that he likes you. Other signs? There will be harmless touching and flirting. He'll touch your arms or guide you through a crowded room with his hand on the small of your back. These are signs that you need to start picking up on.
I'm Here, I'm There, I'm Everywhere!
Lately it seems like he's everywhere you go. You end up running into him at the common hall, in class, in sports practice, even your cooking class(!) When someone likes you, they need to be in your periphery of vision all the time so that you are constantly reminded of them. That is what he's doing. He'll also try and spend as much time in your company as possible. Signing up for the same classes as you, asking you for a cup of coffee in the cafeteria, and such and such signs will start making way.
Friends and Girlfriends
When in high school, he's still finding his way with the whole 'How to tell her', 'How to get her to like me back' and similar things like that. So he'll do whatever it is, whatever is in his means to get you to know that he likes you. He'll want to get to know you better as well. So there will probably be the befriending your friends to ask more about you or one of his guy friends coming over to ask you about stuff. Don't be surprised if you find that his friends suddenly get all chatty and loud when you're passing by or there's a lot of his name being mentioned. That's just to get you to think about him. One of the surest signs a guy like you in high school? This is definitely one of them.
More than Words
And now for the way in which he speaks to you. Here's what he'll do―he'll hang on to every word you say, even if no one else in the group is listening to you. He'll also try to include you in the group conversations and ask for your opinions in matters that are being discussed. One other sure sign of how to know if a guy likes you in high school? His phone calls will increase. The conversation will center around getting to know you and he'll ask you a lot of questions about yourself for the same. He'll ask for your opinion on things, which is a clear indication that he respects you and what you think matters to him.
There. Has that helped you a little at least? Now you won't be clueless and can start looking for these positive signs and signals that a guy gives out. May the eternal conundrum, 'Does he - Doesn't he' get quelled fast enough and may whatever you want, happen soon. Here's to high school romances.
