Does He Like Me? 32 Ways to Answer The All Important Question!

“Does He Like Me” seems to be holding the fort in being one of the most popular questions, still. So I thought I add all the little things a guy would do, the subtle hints he shows and the silliness he displays if he likes a girl.


If you answer any of the questions with Yes, your guy in question likes you whether he is a friend, a crush, a classmate, or a total stranger. The more Yes’s you have, the more certain you can be that he likes you.

Does he try to make you laugh in any way such as telling jokes, being witty, being silly or even tickling you?

Does he attempt to touch you like picking a hair string on your shirt, accidentally brushing his arm against your arm, tickling you, leaning on you, wrestling you, playing with your hair, poking you, tapping you, grabbing your arm, offering you a shoulder rub or even shoving you around and punching you (friendly of course)?

Does he often smile at you, laugh at your jokes even if they are silly?

Does he smell and look good around you, with his hair made (even if it is messy, it is on purpose)?

Does he sometimes act strange or silly to get your attention?

Does He Like Me? 32 Ways to Answer The All Important Question!


Does he shoot a rubber band or throw a paper wad at you?

Does he not want to be seen with you, so people including his friends won’t think he likes you?

Does he sometimes feel weird around you since someone asked him if he likes you?

Does he attempt to randomly start a conversation with you using conversation starters like “What’s up”, “Hey” or “So,…”?

Does he get jealous of you if he sees you talking to or hanging out with a guy friend?

Does he offer you help with homework, carrying your things, or any other important or just random tasks?

Does he call you “Cutie”, “Sweetie” or with a nick name?

Does he often find ways to be near you, around you, to spend time with you, to talk to you about anything or to hang out with you like walking with you even though he has to be somewhere else?

Does he share common hobbies and interest with you and talk about them too, like his favorite movies, books, or sports?

Does he blush or smile when he sees you or when a friend mentions your name in your absence?

Does he look at you from a distance when you are looking away and then shyly looks down or away when you catch him looking at you?

Does he have your phone number, and does he call you or text you regularly or send you emails and IMs?

Does he get things for you or buy you stuff?

Does he flirt with you, tease you and even say something mean, too?

Does he shyly look at you or stare at you when he walks by you and maybe even smile or wink at you?

Does he look deep into your eyes when you talk to him and sometimes blushes?

Does he sometimes become shy and nervous around you but mostly act sweet, nice, gentle, flirty and playful towards you?

Does he ever rub his arm or fix his hair when he talks to you?

Does he act clueless and pretend he doesn’t know anything or cracks jokes and even try to change the conversation when his friends are talking to you?

Does he talk about you with his friends?

Does he look at you, then smile and then look away for no apparent reason?

Does he seem relaxed, listening to you, leaning toward you, touching you on the arm or shoulder when you talk to him?

Does he seem to act normally when in a group of people, but seem kind of nervous, shy and quiet when he is alone with you?

Does he try to impress you by dressing well, and presenting himself with his best behavior?

Do his friends seem to be nicer to you and talk to you more often than usual?

Do his friends ask you if you like him?

And last but not least, do you or any of your friends think he likes you?

How did you do, and how many Yes’s did you have? I am sure you did well. Keep in mind that some guys will like you, while some others will like you even more. But the more important thing is to see if he likes you for who you are and not try to change you.

And you should not try to change him, either. Even more, you shouldn’t change your ways for him. Otherwise, what is the point? He should go find someone else if that’s what he wants and trust me there are enough people for each one of us on earth that you will find someone who likes you as much as you like him.

  • Well, I have some problem here. The first boy, he is same age like me. He smile and sometime blush shyly every time he meet me, he text me every night (even just for some random conversation), but he has a girlfirend! And now he never contact me anymore, and I think he just try to be loyal to his girfriend.
    And the second, he is 2 years older than me. He rarely talk to me, but he could get blush and give me a big smile every time he meet me. He also stared at my phone number (that written on a card). I like him, but I am not sure if he likes me too.

  • I think the problem is that guys use these tactics to get the girl. The girl will only go for him and like him back if he does not hit on her definitely until later. You can only win a girl over if she spends time WONDERING IF HE LIKES YOU.

    So if he does this, the guy probably likes the girl.

    Also, great question! I feel like "does he like me" is the ONLY question girls ask on here to!

  • I got about 14 or 15.....some of them though, like looking nicer for me and such I'm not sure about since I didn't really know him until about a month and a half ago, hah. He does always look nice though, so if we include ones like that in then I have about 20. This is a great article. =)

  • Aside from the throwing a wad of paper at me, most of these applied. However, how can you be sure that he's not just being a gentleman with the intentions of a platonic relationship? Women can read into things that really aren't there. I don't want to get my hopes up, only to be rejected by a shy guy! That's like a double rejection. :sniffs:

    But, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your article!

  • What’s up”, “Hey” or “So, ”?" Doesn't EVERYONE SAY that?

    "Does he look deep into your eyes when you talk to him and sometimes blushes? "

    What if he has dark skin ?lol

    "Does he not want to be seen with you ?" HOw would you guys talk?

    "ooking away and then shyly looks down or away when you catch him looking at you?"

    What f he does not look away?

    "tease you and even say something mean, too?"

    Why would he say something MEAN? - Kind of makes it look like he does not LIKE you - no?

  • i think he doesn't like me anymore..he used to call me sweetie or honey but I called him yesterday and we talked about meeting tomorrow and he didn't call me that. and then today he didn't show. figures..i think its because I asked him if he was having sex with other women too...i can't really see why thatd make him not like me tho..i guess he just doesnt. or he thinks I'm not interested in more than sex because of the way I asked...

  • I really enjoyed this article a lot. I think that it has great advice. Although, it does have some exceptions. I mean, I've been best friends with the same guy for over ten years, and neither of us want anything more. I still think this is an excellent article.

  • What if a guy does all of this, but then out of no where says he cares about you but only as a friend? Then what? What's that mean?

  • A guy can do all of these signs and more than not he likes you. But to actually ask you out is a different story. My guy friend has done all of these signs and I kissed him twice on two different occassions, yet he's still yet to tell me he likes me or wants to date me. sometimes guys can see it as no big deal flirting with you. They may in fact like you as a person but like some other girl more. Which is sorta the current situation I'm in.

  • Um well... I'm in fifth grade and one of my friends has shown all of these signs. He leans against me when we sit next to each other, he tried holding my hand but I had to get up to talk to someone, he even blew a kiss at me! I know that all this is inappropriate for my age, and I want to tell him to back off. Even with all these signs, I'm still unsure whether to ask him if he likes me or not (this is so I can tell him that I just like him as a friend). Should I?

  • If a boy talks and laughs with a girl does he have a crush on her?

    If a boy sees the girl with her BFFs and he barges In and one of her friends says if you want to stay you have to sing something and he does then drops something, gets it then sits next to the girl does he like her? Also if he tells her a secret could he have a crush on her? Please someone else comment and answer my questions.

  • I could've answered "yes" to a lot of these before, but 6mths later? "no." I think I blew it, my body language didn't reflect my true feelings at all. I am an attractive woman but(I was so nervous and scared, I pretended to NOT like him(not intentionally, I was terrified!). Where he once glanced/stared over(and looked away if I looked back), he now treats me as if I am invisible, no acknowledgement, NADA(I simply don't EXIST anymore!). I think he is looking at another woman now, Gosh I suck :

  • My guy friends has done everything out of this list but five things....but while doing this he was "talking" to other girls and walk one to her class even though he still did these things to me. Is he serious? By the way he's shorter than me.

  • And what if most of these things he did, had a wonderful first date - held hand, cuddled me and kissed me passionately, and after that date he is as quiet as a mouse - almost as if I don't exist anymore. What does that mean? Can he still be interested? Does he think things might be moving too quickly? Says everything is OK between us, but I'm on the 'ignore' :( :( :(

  • I had a lot of yes's also but the thing is is that he has never asked to hang out with me and he doesn't text regulary, he only texts me when he is bored, he even says, "Hey what's up, I'm bored!" That's where I'm confused.

  • I think the most important way to tell if a guy likes you or not is to see if the does these things to other girls. If you're not the only one, then maybe he likes more than one girl, including you, or he just likes to flirt and means nothing by it.

  • Yeah...... this doesn't really work.

    You should've kept it to a few critical questions and concepts. This is really all over the place and as a result.

    I'd say, keep it to:

    -Does he seem to spend more time around you than you think he should?

    -Is he seemingly unable to ignore you?

    -Does he act different around you?

    Most of those have something to do with one of those three, but not everyone reacts in the same way.
