How do you tell the difference when a guy is just your friend and when he likes you?
What Guys Said 10
It's pretty simple: if he's giving you attention or spending time with you, he wants to have sex with you. There's no such thing as a single guy being "just friends" with an attractive girl (or, at least, it's so incredibly rare that you can safely assume that it never happens).
Now, sometimes they want a relationship with you and have feelings for you - which obviously still means they want sex too, but they also want the other stuff. That's quite a bit more rare than just wanting sex, though, so you really have to look at his behavior over a period of time - or just ask him outright what his interest is.1
If he's always nervous around you and asks about if you're interested in other guys, then that's how you tell. Just see if he does those things. Also, I've found that if I feel in my gut like someone likes me, usually they do, but it may just be sexual attraction, it doesn't mean that they want a relationship.2
Unless you break ice by asking him out for coffee you will never know if he would like you more than just a friend.1
hard to say, friends tend to be playful for fun.1
yo its really hot when the girl makes the first move
just ask him out, see what happens1
i can't unfortunately say for certain if he does or doesn't like you in that way, all i can tell you is that he might just be to shy to ask or waiting to see if he still likes you in that way after a time, if it is the first one if you truly want to know you have to ask him yourself, i in a similar situation would appreciate you asking me this, but I'm not like most guys nor do i have enough knowledge about your friend to say he will appreciate it, sorry if it wasn't very helpful.0
If a guy initiates making time for you (texting first, hanging out, calling, etc.) he likes you. We do not initiate time for girls we are not sexually interested in. For example... no straight guy wakes up and texts the ugly fat girl "good morning :)"0

Well are you friends with him? Don't get into a relationship with a random guy you know nothing about. If he doesn't try to talk to you about it then it's best to leave it alone, unless you personally want to try and get to see if dating is possible. Overall, you can just sense it. Hanging out with you isn't enough to see if he likes you. Attraction is just attraction. Doesn't mean he wants to date you. Maybe he doesn't feel ready for that. He could be just a shy person overall. Most shy people are just shy period around the opposite sex. The only way to truly know is unless he is doing ALL of that AND is spending a lot of quality time with you that often isn't normal. As well as trying to get personal. If he isn't trying to get personal, then it's just attraction and a bit of insecurity and shyness. Nothing more.1

I struggle reading emotions, especially in relationships. Try to pick up on physical cues and eye contact.1
i think you should try and ask him!1
It's hard to say but if you think he does just ask him that the best way to know1
