When we like someone, it’s not easy to hide. But sometimes, you run into people who will have you second-guessing yourself. There’s no need to lose sleep over this. If anything, it’s time you figured out what’s going on for yourself with the signs he wants you to notice him.
We all think we’re subtle when it comes to hiding our feelings for someone. I remember thinking I was so coy when really everyone was placing bets on whether or not the guy I liked would make a move.
We’re all human, and most of us aren’t subtle. Even men, the people who think they’re good at hiding their feelings, expose their inner thoughts for the world to see.

#1 His eyes are all over you. We all have guy friends, and they don’t usually look at us in that way. But you’ve caught him checking you out and staring at you with lovey-dovey eyes. Well, if that’s happening, he’s into you, and he’s just waiting until you start to see him. [Read: Decoding his body language – does he like you or not?]
#2 He’s always around. What can I say? It seems that he’s always around you. He goes the extra mile to make sure he can squeeze in a couple of minutes with you and will take the time out of his weekends to spend them with you.
#3 You’ve met his friends. If you have mutual friends, then this may not be as important. But if he’s introduced you to his close group of friends that you’ve never met, that’s a big deal. We don’t introduce just anyone to our friends. We make sure they’re special. [Read: 30 facts about guys that can help you read his mind]
#4 He tries to get into your personal space. We all have our own personal space that’s reserved just for us. But when we like someone, we open up our personal space and allow that other person in.

#6 He flirts with you. You know that you don’t have a typical platonic friendship. There’s some chemistry floating between you too. And because there’s chemistry, you notice him flirting with you.

#8 He’s nervous around you. When you’re around him, he suddenly becomes super klutzy and will even stutter when he’s trying to talk to you.

#9 You see him get jealous. When you guys are hanging out with other people, and another guy comes up to talk or flirt with you, you notice that he gets jealous. He won’t tell you how he feels, but you’re getting a sense that he doesn’t like it when you give your attention to other men.
#10 He’s touchy. Guy friends may touch you, but not too much. They may give you a hug here and there, but they’re not going to overstep the line. But if he likes you, he’ll try to flirt with you, and with flirting comes touching. He may place his hand on your shoulder, or press his leg against yours. Not huge moves, but they’re significant.
#11 He actively listens to you. There are some guys when you talk to them, you see their eyes glaze over and zone out. But not him. When you talk to him, he’s actively listening to you, asking you questions, and genuinely investing his time and energy into the conversation.
#12 He texts you all the time. Guy friends will text you, but definitely not every day. The difference between friends and this guy is that he texts you all the time. He sends you ‘good morning’ texts and never misses the chance to wish you goodnight as well. He wants to talk to you. [Read: 16 signs a guy really likes you but is scared and unsure]

#15 He loves to compliment you. When given the chance, he loves to give you genuine compliments about the new shirt you bought or the way you laugh when you’re excited. It’s these little things, he notices and wants to you know that he sees you. Do you see him?
