When you meet the perfect guy, and you notice that you are getting more and more attracted to him, you may start worrying if he likes you the same way.
It can be really hard to tell if a guy is falling for you, so we’ve compiled a list of 21 signs that he is slowly falling in love with you.
Once you are able to identify these subtle signs, you can be 100% sure that your crush is becoming close with you!
1) He starts initiating more affection – Starts hugging and touching, even before the date ends
Have you noticed his body language? Is he seeking physical closeness with you?
The chances are that he is slowly falling in love with you if he starts displaying affection this way.
This is a way for him to show that he wants more contact with you and that he enjoys being around you.
Here’s the deal – we can’t help but want to be close to people we care about, so if he’s exhibiting these signs, you can bet he likes you.
2) He wants to hang out more – And tries to change the plans a lot
If your guy is slowly falling in love with you, the chances are that he wants to spend more time with you, and this makes him start acting really clingy.
He contacts you first, seeking the next date. He is interested in knowing about your daily plans and how he can join in.
He does this so you can show whether you feel the same way or not.
He shows that he’s interested in spending more time with you, so it can also be another sign that he likes you.
3) He gives longer responses – Starts thinking about silly things when you hang out with him
We all know that men are indeed more complicated than most women believe, so this is a clear sign that he is slowly falling for you.
If your man gets really nervous and starts blushing when the moment comes to speak, it means he feels way too close to you and is not at ease around you.
There is nothing cuter than a guy who makes a total fool of himself just to see a smile on your face and show you just how much he cares.
If you bring the best out of him, he will surely do everything he can to make you stick around and make his life exciting and beautiful. I learned this from one of the world’s leading experts on relationship psychology – Carlos Cavallo.
In this excellent free video, Carlos explains exactly what men want from a relationship and it’s actually quite simple:
They just want to feel good around the woman they’re with.

4) He gives you more compliments – And makes a point to do this in front of other people
If he is slowly falling in love with you, he will make sure that everyone notices your new haircut or outfit.
He does this to make you feel good and to show you just how much he appreciates you.
If he is doing all of this to keep your attention, it may be another sign that he likes you.
If he expresses interest in the things that you do or in your opinions on certain topics, he just wants to know what’s up with the world around you.
He wants to know what got into your mind so that he can learn your tastes and find out if there is anything else that can interest you and to spend more time with you.
5) His eyes light up when he sees you
We can read plenty of signs that a guy likes us, but this one is my favorite.
If a guy likes you, his eyes will literally light up the moment he sees you.
This is because of an inner spark that gets ignited inside of him and lights up his entire face.
He feels like nothing in the world can bring him more joy than seeing your beautiful face. This cannot be hidden in any way, it is simply so obvious.
6) He calls you more often – Even if he doesn’t have a solid reason to do so
When we like someone, we can’t help but think about seeing this person again and again.
If your guy likes you, he will make sure that he has your number on his phone and that you have his.
So, if you notice that he’s calling you for no particular reason, it may be another sign that he likes you and wants to get in touch with you as soon as possible.
My point is that if you start talking more and more even when you are not together, he is surely trying to tell you that he wants to have you in his life.
7) He wants to spend time doing things you like
If he asks you a lot of questions about how you feel about things and what your life looks like, it means that he is interested in what you have to say.
So, if he likes you, he will listen to your opinions and try to get involved with the things that interest you.
He does this because he seeks more intimacy with you and wants to show that he’s not the kind of guy who just stands around.
He wants to show you that he can be an active part of your life and that he is happy to do so.
8) He opens up – Reveals things about his past or some other personal stuff
This is yet another sign that he likes you and is slowly getting closer to you.
If a guy opens up like this, it means that he feels very comfortable around you and can’t imagine ever not being in your life anymore.
That’s why it’s so important to make him feel this way.
If you really like a guy, try making yourself open up as well.
Open up to him and see how it goes. Show him your vulnerable side and see how this makes him react.
This is the point when he will probably make a move.
If you are impatient to start a relationship, try to give him clear signals that will tell him just how much you like him.
9) He starts recommending some books or movies he read or watched in the past – And compares them to your tastes
All men love the idea of sharing the same taste in movies and books.
This is what makes men so awesome when they like you.
So if your man starts recommending you books or movies that he has read or watched in the past, it means he is as interested in getting to know you as you are with him.
He also wants to see if there are any similarities between his interests and yours.
If there are, he wants to know if you share those interests because that’s another sign that he likes you.
10) He enjoys helping you
When a guy likes you and hangs out with you, he feels that you are part of his life.
This is why he wants to do everything he can to make your life easier and better.
That’s why he plans your dates in order to create the perfect atmosphere for you and make sure that everything goes just the way you imagined it would.
If a guy asks a lot of questions during your first date, it means that he wants to be sure that it all goes just fine.
There’s actually a psychological term for what I’m talking about here. It’s called the ‘hero instinct.’
This concept is generating a lot of buzz at the moment as a way to explain what really drives men in relationships.
I know it might all seem kind of silly. In this day and age, women don’t need someone to rescue them. They don’t need a ‘hero’ in their lives.
But this misses the point about what the hero instinct is all about.
The hero instinct is an instinctive need that men have to step up to the plate for the woman in their lives. This is deeply rooted in male biology.
When a man genuinely feels like your everyday hero, he’ll become more loving, attentive, and committed to being in a long-term relationship with you.
But how do you trigger this instinct in him?
The trick is to make him feel like a hero in an authentic way. And there are things you can say and messages you can send to trigger this natural biological instinct.
If you want some help doing this, check out James Bauer’s excellent free video here.
He tells you everything you need to know about the hero instinct, including exactly how to trigger it in your man.
I don’t often recommend videos or buy into popular new concepts in psychology, but the hero instinct is one of the most fascinating concepts I’ve come across.
11) He wants to make you feel loved
When a guy genuinely feels like he can’t live without you, he will do everything in his power to express this to you.
When he starts asking you for your opinion on things that really matter to him, it means that he really likes you.
If he finds out about important events in your life and tags along with your dates and events, it means that he is trying to feel closer to you and more connected.
If he wants to stay behind with you, it’s another sign that he is telling you how much he likes you.
So don’t take this for granted.
There are plenty of guys out there who are happy to find out that their girl is single and appreciate the effort they put in to make her feel loved.
So, if your boyfriend wants more time with you, take advantage of this opportunity and show him how much you appreciate him!
12) He wants to know more about you
When a guy likes you, he will listen to your stories and be interested in what you have to say.
He will ask you a lot of questions, and I mean A LOT.
But this is normal because he wants to get closer to you and understand your world and interests better.
When he asks a lot of questions or gets really interested in things that are going on in your life, it’s yet another sign that he likes you.
13) He questions a lot – And wants you to open up more
When a guy genuinely likes you, he will ask a lot of questions.
But not because he wants to get more information about you.
He’s interested in the things that are going on in your life and wants to understand more about you.
If he feels like the time spent talking to you is worth it, he will keep on asking questions about what happened during your day or how your day went.
He will want to know more about your friends, your family, and your interests.
He will also ask about things that he finds interesting or special about you.
All this means that he genuinely likes you and wants to get to know you better.
This can also be a good sign to show him how much you like him!
When he asks many questions, don’t just answer them plainly but engage in conversing with him by explaining why something might have happened or what motivated you to do something!
14) He surprises you often
When a man likes you, he will show you affection on a regular basis.
But if he wants to make you feel special and show you that you are the most important person in his life, it means that he is being authentic with you.
He will introduce you to his friends and family and always make sure that everything is going fine for you.
It’s also normal for him to surprise you by giving you expensive things like tickets or spa days.
He will also drop by at times when you don’t expect him.
He might even call you during your busy schedule just to show you that he is thinking about you.
He doesn’t want to disappoint you and wants to make sure that you know how much he likes and cares for you.
15) He listens to your problems – And tries to understand them
When a guy likes a girl, he will listen when she has something important on her mind.
He will put himself in her shoes and try to understand what is really going on.
This means that he will ask you questions that help him understand your problems better.
So, if he wants to know what you are feeling right now or wants to hear what kind of problems bother you, it means that he actually cares about you and wants to be there for you.
16) He shares things with you that are special to him
When a guy likes a girl, he is always eager to share things with her.
For example, he might share a few secrets with you or tell you something that is not common knowledge.
He will also share things that are special to him.
He might show you a favorite place or even give you something he never gave anyone before.
If your boyfriend shares things that are special to him with you, it means he is letting his guard down and opening up to you as much as possible.
17) He matches your moves – And is responsive to everything you do
When a man likes you, he will try to match your behavior, moods, and actions.
In this case, he will even match your body language.
For example, if you lean forward in order to show that you are interested in what he is saying, he will do the same thing and lean forward while listening.
When a guy is responsive to everything you do, it means that he appreciates your presence and wants to be closer to you.
18) He is supportive – And will be there for you
If the guy you like likes you, he will always want to give you the best of himself.
He will be supportive and be there by your side no matter what happens.
It might even mean giving up his own comfort or normal schedule to make sure you are okay.
For example, if you are having problems with your family or at work, he will understand why you are feeling upset and try hard to fix the problem.
He won’t criticize you or blame you for the problem, but try to understand it and find ways to help you solve it.
19) He uses cute nicknames for you
When a guy likes a girl, he will use pet names when talking to her.
But he would only do this if he really wants to tell her how much he likes and is attracted to her.
This shows that he is not afraid to tell you how he feels and wants to show you how cute and special you are in his eyes.
20) He gets jealous easily when he sees you with other guys
If a guy you like sees you with someone and gets jealous when you are talking with other guys or showing interest in them, it is a clear sign that he cares a lot.
He might get even more protective and make sure that nobody else approaches you.
If you notice that he is jealous when you talk to your male friends or guys he doesn’t know but tries very hard not to show it, this is a sign that he is trying his best to fight it.
This means that he is in very good control of his feelings and will try his best to hide them.
21) He tries hard to impress you
If the guy you like uses every chance he can to do something that will impress you, that is a sure sign that he likes you and that he wants you to know it.
This means that he will try his best to do something nice for you and always go out of his way just to show you what a great guy he is.
If you feel the same, do your best to show him just how much you like him.
Show him that you are interested in his hobbies and goals.
Try to find things that will help you understand him better!
As a woman, you want to know if the guy you like is interested in you.
And by looking at the signs listed above, you can be sure that he likes you.
But don’t get carried away by how much attention he gives you, and try to keep your cool as much as possible.
By now, you should have a good idea of the reasons why the guy you like acts the way he does.
You may be a little bit impatient by now to act on it, which is completely understandable.
So what can you do to resolve this?
Well, I mentioned the unique concept of the hero instinct earlier. It’s revolutionized the way I understand how men work in relationships.
You see, when you trigger a man’s hero instinct, all those emotional walls come down. He feels better, and he’ll naturally begin to associate those good feelings with you.
And it’s all down to knowing how to trigger these innate drivers that motivate men to love, commit, and protect.
So if you’re ready to take your relationship to that level, be sure to check out James Bauer’s incredible advice.
