The cutie you met at the bar, the sweet coworker, helpful classmate, fun neighbor – how do you know if he too has the hots for you? Actions speak louder than words. Well, initially at least! Subtle and simple gestures on his part may say much more than what they seem. There are no rules when it comes to the game of love.
Men may not be so easy to figure out at all times. Traditionally, men have always made the first move, but it does not come easy. Not at all. Guess it was all the long waiting that motivated women to go for it instead. So the question remains, how do you know if he is interested?
Hmm. The first way to gauge if you have finally caught his attention is eye contact. It is a part of basic communication courtesy to look into the other person’s eyes. However, when a man is attracted towards you, there is a difference in the way he locks his eyes on you. A long, lingering gaze with a smile on his face; frequent eye contact; his eyes following you and searching for you in a room full of other people, are all sure signs that you’re being focused on, girl!
Does he accidentally graze his hand against yours? Do the two of you sit so close that you can feel your legs touching? When sitting in a group, does his body point in your direction? Yes for all? Good news darling! These are a man’s subtle ways to let you know he wants to focus on you and get to know you better as well.
They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And may I add a jealous man. Your simple sweet conversation with another guy does not take long to turn him into Mr. J. If a guy is into you, he would like to be the only one into you. Inquisitiveness about a woman’s love life is a definite giveaway for a man’s interest in her. So the next time he gets all worked up when you mention another guy, you know the reason. Want to hear it, don’t you? Yes, he has something for you!
He’s the Man
Have you caught the guy of your interest acting all tough when you are around? Modesty may not be a guy’s topmost priority if he’s got his eyes on you. Most men like to display their masculinity and other talents when their special girl is around. They do this to catch her attention and to assure her that they are capable of doing everything. Signs of body language including the way he stands or sits, when you are around, take you one step closer to being his chosen one.
A chivalrous man is an absolute delight. And if you’ve caught a guy’s fancy, feel lucky girl, because you’re going to be delighted and how! If you’re cold – he’ll offer his jacket, need help – he’ll be the first one to offer, feeling low – you have his shoulder to cry on… Oh the list is long! A girl’s smile is one of the first things that is noticed by a guy, and if he really likes you, he’ll make sure you have every reason to keep smiling.
Have you noticed a sudden change in the guy’s looks? Does he wear your favorite black shirt more often? All this preening and primping is not for nothing. The man is conscious and wants to look his best for when you are around. Adjusting a tie, making sure the shirt is well tucked-in, styling of hair, are things most men do sub-consciously when their special someone is around. Making an effort to appear neat and tidy is a big deal, as it shows that a man cares about how he comes across to you.
Stolen glances, obsessing over each text message; the initial stages of liking make for some of the best memories. And if a guy is showing all the above mentioned signs, congratulations girl! He’s most definitely into you. Enjoy the attention.
