Those in relationships frequently ponder the question of how to subtly let a guy know they like him without actually telling him.
After all, we’re often told to read our partners’ facial expressions to determine if they find us attractive. Is it too much to say, “I like you?” Should we settle for a simple “I like you” or try something more ambitious?
Here are a few of the most subtle methods for telling a guy you’re interested. All of them are also quite simple.
Tell him indirectly
When you look back at your first crush, it is easy to remember how excited you were that someone you liked showed interest in you. But nowadays, it’s difficult to tell whether a guy likes you or not.
There are many methods to tell a guy that you like him. One way is to compliment him on something he has done. Another way is to do something that he has always wanted to do but never had the courage to do. But some of them have a lot of disadvantages. If you are a shy person, you should make sure you use this approach sparingly or not at all.
But don’t worry. We’ll help you figure out whether a guy likes you or not, even if you’re not yet sure whether he is interested in you. Try the below-given tips:
Listen with all of your heart
It’s easy to pretend that you’re listening, but truly giving him 100 % of your attention is different. Any guy would be able to tell the difference as truly listening will make you respond correctly, and you wouldn’t appear bored at all.
Smile as you chat
When a guy is interested in us, he can tell by the sincerity of our smile. If this happens to you, there’s no need to come right out and tell him that you like him; just keep smiling and talking to him. Add some teasing remarks to the mix and watch his face light up.
Do you want to know if he likes you or not? Your happy expression will be obvious to him.
Use some indicative words
There is no definitive way to indirectly say “I like you” to someone. However, some possible phrases that could be used to hint at an interest in someone without explicitly stating it are “You’re interesting,” “You’re a good person,” or “You’re a great friend.”
Give him the tender loving care that he truly needs
Men love to be cuddled or touched in any possible way. Touching relieves stress and also shows how much you feel for him. And since men crave so much for a woman’s touch, you can go ahead and be lavish with this gesture to get your message that you like him so much.
Treat him differently from the rest of the other guys
In order to tell him indirectly that you like him, you should try to make him feel special. You should be careful not to come off as too eager or desperate.
You can start by complimenting his appearance or his personality. This will make him feel good and will give you the opportunity to spend more time with him. If he likes talking about himself, this is a great way for you to get closer to him.
A man will be able to tell that you like him once he sees that you behave differently when he’s around. Also, he will notice that all the other guys get the exact, plain treatment while you go out of your way to pamper him when he’s around.
Find a common interest and spend time doing it with him
Let’s say your guy is a sports buff; wouldn’t it be great for him to know that you can enjoy his interests? It would melt his heart to find out that you’re trying to like his hobbies and activities.
Give him flirting signals that he won’t be able to resist
Women have the God-given ability to attract men without actually saying anything. You have it in you to make him approach you, just flirt with your eyes and glance sexily at him. Play coy, and he’ll be enticed to get to know you.
Be confident about your feelings
After he’s taken this long to confess his feelings, it’s time for you to step up and show him who’s boss. Tell him how you feel and list the things you appreciate about him casually. You’re a winner if he agrees with you. But if he doesn’t share your feelings, it’s good to know early on so you can move on to the next potential suitor.
