From friends to lovers
There is probably nothing as frustrating as trying to figure out whether or not a guy likes you. A lot of them aren’t really good at expressing themselves which forces you to play Sherlock Holmes trying to find clues that could give you an idea.
What did he mean with that emoji he sent? Was he staring at me or was he just lost in his thoughts with his eyes fixed in my general direction?
If you are in such a situation then don’t fret. We have your back.
Below are 10 signs he likes you more than a friend.
Of course it is not an entirely foolproof list and context always plays a huge role in determining just how accurate these signs are.
However, for the most part if a guy does any of them they probably are interested in more than being another buddy on the contact list.
10 signs he really is that into you
He makes an effort to spend quality time with you
It is not likely for a guy to go out of his way to spend time with someone that they do not like. He might ask you out on a date. If he is shy he will insist on calling it a casual hangout. However, if there seems to be a ton of these “casual hangs” then you might have a love-struck bug in your hands.

He is constantly checking up on you
When a guy likes you, he will blow up your phone all day every day. He wants to know how your day was. He wants to know what you are having for lunch. He wants your opinion on something he bought. This constant communication is his way of trying to maintain a connection with you.
He is asking all the right questions
When guys are considering making the move from the friend zone to something more, they usually do their research. He will ask you questions about your values, goals, and basically anything he needs to figure out whether you are the right match. So when the conversation shifts from cartoons and popcorn to dreams and deep feelings then he probably really likes you.
Subtle physical displays of affection
One of the most obvious and accurate ‘are we more than friends signs’ is constant physical displays of affection.
Maybe he is always touching your hair. Or he could place his arm on your shoulder as he is guiding you through a door. Or maybe he lingers a little when he hugs you. More often than not, these are subconscious acts but usually show that a guy is really into you.
He gets uncomfortable when you talk about other guys
Jealousy is another very huge sign that a guy is into you as more than a friend. If every time you talk about a crush or even another guy friend he gets awkward or straight up shuts down then he probably has a crush on you. So maybe don’t bring up how Jack from work bought you flowers for your birthday or many other things that could make him jealous.
He’s making jokes about you two being together
Signs you’re more than friends are sometimes hidden in plain sight. He could be one of those guys whose way of telling you he likes you is through jokes. So if you have heard statements like “if we were together…” or “if you were my girlfriend…” then have your love antennae up. Someone is head over heels.
He treats you like a princess
He will buy you gifts, take you to his favorite spots and straight up spoil you. This is how guys appeal to women’s innate desire to be taken care of and treated like royalty. It doesn’t matter how strong and independent you are these gestures always melt your heart.
He remembers everything you mention
When a guy is genuinely interested, then everything you say is exciting. It could be anything from the story of how you ripped off a fingernail in third grade to what you ate last week for lunch. They also probably also keep bringing the information up during subsequent conversations to show you that they remember.
He is protective about you
If a guy likes you a lot, he will want to protect you. You will see it in subtle gestures like how he always insists on walking on the side of the road where there is traffic. Or how he will always wait for your food to arrive before he starts eating. However, this is a tricky one because some guys do this just out of kindness and because they were raised to be gentlemen.
He straight up says it
And sometimes, if you are lucky, you won’t even need clues. He will come right out and let you know what he feels.
Isn’t that the dream?
