“Is He Fighting His Feelings for Me?” 8 Signs He Is!

He Makes Excuses to Talk to You

One of the most obvious signs he is fighting his feelings for you is that he tries to initiate conversation whenever he possibly can.

That might be running into you at a store he knows you like, or sending a text to see how your day is going. If he doesn’t care, he won’t try at all. 

He Talks Smack About the Guy You’re Seeing

If he is continually talking trash about your current boyfriend, that could be another sign he denies his feelings. 

Unless you’re dating someone who is just a bad person, there is no reason he should talk about this guy positively or negatively. 

But negatively talking about him shows you he is trying to upset you and steer you away from this guy. This is definitely a sign that he wants to be more than a friend.

You Catch Him Looking at You

If you continue catching him looking in your direction at any given time, he is probably showing some interest. Guys don’t just stare if they aren’t interested unless they have a staring problem. Even if that were the case, he would probably not only reserve his staring for you alone.

He Finds Reasons to Touch You

Another way to know his feelings for you is by continually finding reasons to touch you. That may be a quick hug passing by or a touch on the arm. He may even put his arm around you and pretend to play the “big brother.” I have a brother, and he doesn’t do that. This guy is looking for an excuse!

He Gives You the Cold Shoulder

If a guy is shutting you out, is he hiding his feelings or not interested at all? 

This one can be difficult to determine, but if you’re adults, chances are he’s avoiding his feelings. 

Adult men generally don’t ignore people just for fun, and men have a tough time navigating their feelings if they think they shouldn’t have them. 

He Knows More About You Than the Average “Friend”

Guys don’t just remember random things, like your birthday or favorite color. If this guy wants to remind you he knows these things, he is probably fighting his feelings for you. 

He Tries to Make You Jealous

If he brings up in conversation the hangout he had with your best friend or worst nemesis, he is showing you his cards. 

He wants to make you jealous and is expecting a reaction out of you. If he doesn’t get one, he will continue hiding his feelings because he probably thinks he has no chance. 

He Invites You to “Hang Out” But Never Asks You on Dates

If a guy wants to date a girl, he will ask her out, unless he thinks he can’t. 

If that’s the case, he may invite you to hang out with a group on regular occasions. Or he even might suggest going to grab something to eat together, but it’s always in a very casual atmosphere, like fast food or a coffee to go. 

If he doesn’t think he has a chance, he will avoid getting hurt by not putting himself out there too much. 

Final Words

You may regularly ask yourself, “How to know his feelings for me?” If you’re asking yourself this question, chances are you have already seen the signs!

Guys are simple creatures, and if they have feelings, they sometimes want to avoid them. Reading the signs is a sure way to know that he does have feelings. 

If you want to quit the games, you may have to take matters into your own hands or ignore his signs completely. The ball is in your court now!
