You may have to wait quite a while for a guy to express his interest in you by talking to you directly about it. However, you can get a sense for how he feels by paying close attention to the nonverbal messages he’s sending your way.

1 Moving in Closer

A guy who likes you will probably stand or sit close to you. You may not notice this at first, but pay attention to a guy who always seems to be nearby. Perhaps he has an uncanny way of always running into you when you are on your way to class, or even putting his arm protectively around you while you are standing around chatting.

2 Mr. Smiles

You may also notice that he smiles a lot when he is near you. This is a natural body language sign designed to tell another person that he wants the communication to continue. It also communicates that he finds you pleasant to be around.

3 No Spinach in Your Teeth

If you find him staring at you, then it could be a sign that he likes you. People tend to gaze longer at people they like and find attractive.
