“I think he likes me but… he hasn’t asked me out yet! What’s up with this dude?”
Relax, you’re not alone. Mixed signals are a common problem between men and women and just because you’re receiving mixed signals it doesn’t mean he doesn’t like you.
He might like you a ton, but have no clue that you like him back or that you’d even be interested in going on a date with him.
That’s why it’s important to give men the opportunity to ask you out. We cover this ground thoroughly in the Girl Gets Ring Guide, but the long and short of it is that you need to give men not just one opportunity to ask you out, but a lot of opportunities to ask you out.
We can be dense creatures, so it’s important for you to make it easy for us if it seems like we’re faltering a bit in the bravery department.
But how do you know when to start giving a guy all those opportunities? How do you know he even really likes you in the way you’re hoping?
Signs a Guy Likes You Body Language:
Body language can be a great indicator on if a guy likes you. It’s often the non-verbal communication that speaks volumes and broadcasts the loudest. Study a guy’s body language and notice whether or not he seems to be intent on invading your personal space.
- Does he touch you casually but more often than really necessary?
- Does he like to be close to you?
- Does he make eye contact with you and hold it a little longer than necessary?
- Does he look away quickly, like he doesn’t want you to think he’s staring?
- Does he smile at you a lot?
- Does he always seem to wind up nearby, even if you are talking to different people?
All of these can be good indicators he does indeed have a thing for you. That also probably means that it’s time for you to create those opportunities I mentioned earlier to get him to ask you out!
How To Know If a Guy Likes You Tip:
Besides body language to learn if a guy likes you, notice his interactions with his pals as well. When a man likes a girl, his buddies are usually very aware of it. And often it’s an invitation for ribbing and teasing.
Maybe his friends are hiding smiles when you’re around, like they know a big secret. Or they tease him subtly, giving him a hard time in front of you. Men like to bust each others balls when they know one of their own likes a girl, and if you pay attention you’ll catch those moments for yourself.
Maybe they ask you questions, trying to poke around and see how you feel about him in return. If you’re paying attention, a man’s friends can offer a lot of signals that a guy is really into you.
If a man has made it clear to his friends that he likes a girl, he’s probably hoping that it will get back to you in some way or another. This can tell you what you want to know…and it will make it easier for him to figure out if you like him in return.
Again, we men are big scared-y cats at times and we need to know that asking you out isn’t going to make us feel all awkward and embarrassed. It’s up to you to make it clear to us that won’t happen and give us all those opportunities I mentioned.
Listen To Know If a Guy Likes You …
A man that likes you may be very intent about asking you questions and carrying on a conversation with you. Even when you’re interrupted he will often try to steer the conversation back on track.
He may make a point to call you by your first name often, which can be a sign he’s giving you more thought than you realize. (Maybe even more the he himself realizes!)
He might be playful, or say things just to get your attention, maybe even tease you a little bit…
While these are not necessarily hard and fast signals that he’s smitten, when combined with any of the above mentioned behaviors, they can be a pretty solid bet he does indeed have a thing for you.
How to Get Him To Ask You Out…
Ditch your herd of girlfriends, and give him a moment or two alone with you. Say hi, smile warmly and mention something casual, like how you and some friends are going to see a movie tomorrow if he wants to join you.
Focus on making yourself as approachable as possible. The less stressful a situation he finds himself in, the more willing he will be to let down his guard, be real, and ask you out on a date.
Again, sometimes you have to give him a very clear signal that you’re open to him asking you out, because some men really just don’t see the signs.
So tell me… is there a guy in your life giving you mixed signals? Do you think he likes you but he still hasn’t asked you out yet?
Are you making it easy for him to approach you? I’d love to hear how you’ve made it easy for a guy to ask you out in the comments below.
