There is no surefire, 100% guaranteed way to know if someone likes you as more than a friend...and anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. There are, however, certain signs you can look for that will give you a pretty good idea if your friend or aquaintance is interested in being more than friends. Test his/her Personal Space Everyone has something called "personal space". It is like a bubble around us that we don't like people trespassing into. If someone gets too close, we instinctively move away, and if they get too close again we move away again. When we are attracted to someone that bubble dissapears. They can brush their thigh against ours while sitting close and we won't jerk our leg away, they can stand close and we won't step to the side, they can sit beside us on a long couch while watching a movie and we don't ask them to move over. We enjoy being close to those who we are attracted to and sometimes make excuses to do so.
So, the first step in gauging whether your friend is attracted to you is to get past their "personal space" and monitor their reaction. If they move away, heed it as a warning and don't try it again that day. Our personal space is a personal thing and many of us become annoyed if someone repeatedly invades it against our will. You can try this several times (over several days) and if he or she continues to move away as if by reflex, chances are, they are not attracted to you. This is not to stop you from trying the next test another time.
Observe Their Body Language Is your friend exhibiting flirtaseous behaviour with you? Do they find excuses to touch you, stand close, compliment you repeatedly on your appearance? Do their pupils dialate when they see you? It has been found scientifically that our pupils dialate when we are looking at someone we are attracted to. Although this is a good method, it is probably the most unreliable of all that are listed. This is because some people are natural flirts, they flirt with everyone, including their friends. Also, some people are very affectionate with their friends and that could be miscontrued as flirting.
Touch his/her Hand Another way to gauge if someone is attracted to you is to deliberately touch, or almost touch their hand. Try passing him or her something and hold it in a way that makes it difficult for them to take it without your hands touching. When they reach to take it, observe whether or not they expend any effort to touch the smallest surface area of your hand as possible. If they avoid touching your hand then it could mean that they want to avoid all physical contact with you. Take it as a good sign if they linger by your hand when they touch you. Better yet, are their hands sweaty?
You could also try placing your hand very near your friend's hand and watch to see if they move theirs away. If they are standing with a hand rested on a railing, stand next to them and rest your hand right beside theirs. If they are trying to program their VCR or CD player, help them and let your hand graze by theirs while you both play with the buttons. It would be a bad sign if they retracted their hand completely.
Watch for Changing or Strange Behaviour Does your friend seem unusually awkward or nervous around you? Are their hands shaky or sweaty? Do they avoid talking about other guys/girls, and seem very uninterested in hearing you talk about other guys/girls that you are interested in?
Are they suddenly complimenting you more than usual? Are they only letting their best side show? Is she spending more time getting ready than usual? Is he wearing his nicest clothes and cologne...things you've only see him do when going on a date with other women?
Listen to what they Say It sounds like a no brainer, but I am telling you anyway because when we like someone we tend to ignore any signs that they don't like us and really play up any signs that they do. If your friend is saying things similar to those below then they may have picked up on your interest and are subtly hinting back that they aren't interested in taking the friendship further.
"It is so nice to have a male/female friend who is just a friend."
"I really like this guy/girl from work, we went out last night...."
"There is a new guy/girl at school who I am really interested in. Can you give me some advice on striking up a conversation?"
"I'm so glad we can just be friends without getting physically involved, I see so many friendships ruined because they crossed that boundary."
"I have a friend who I'de like to set you up with, you guys would get along so well!"
ok so you ask one of your friends to ask this guy if he likes you and if he does ask him out.
The guy you like likes you! and his friends know...
Ask him or ask one of his friends that you are friends with too. Then you would know, even if it was indirectly.
go for it one of you will win him
If youre unsure then get one of youre friends or one of his friends to ask him who he likes or if he likes you
well you could ask one of his friends if you know them. or if he talks to you alot between classes then he probably likes you
I'd have one of my friends ask him. And if he said yeah and was serious about it then I'd have her or him tell the guy that I like him.
to find out...if you see him with a boner while you are around, he likes you. you could also tell him that you are interested in his penis and if he accepts a bj then he likes you
A guy said that to me, and it depends. That isn't the only way a guy says that he likes you. The guy I know is one of my best friends! You shouldn't assume he likes you, but I'm not saying he doesn't cause he might!
You should tel them how you feel because you never know what can happen.
This ability is a special talent, maybe you have it maybe one of your friends has it. I have this talent name one guy and I can observe him for one day and immediately knows who he likes. Ask around friends that you can trust, ask them who he likes and see what your friends think.
get one of your friends to ask him who he likes or recommend you to be a couple then get them to tell you how he fells if this help you ask more stuff and at the end put to guy getter
then he probably likes you... (:
He either likes you or he is just one I those guy friends that like to pick on you or make fun of
You dont tell you ask or get one of your friends to ask or get one of his friends to cough up the info.
it should be obvious which one likes you.
The one way is he is mean to you
if one of ur friends is a guy
Find out if the guy likes her back or not and if she really likes the other guy (ask one of her friends). Also you need to make yourself noticed and seem desirable. Then ask her if she wants to do something sometime.
ask one of his friends to ask if he likes you if the answer is yes his friend will encorage him to ask you out on a date, if the answer is no then move on. the answer is no now so how can you lose
it means he likes you but is shy and you could ask him or ask one of his friends if he does or get one of your friends to do it if your shy
I go to an all guys school. (and no I am not gay) Still, I have a lot of close friends who are girls and I have been asked if I liked one of them because of "how I acted" around her. They thought I was flirting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am just comfortable with all of my girl friends. There is this one girl I like, but she doesn't know it. I also dont know if she likes me or not, but I am always talking to her. All of my friends know how I feel about her and I have asked her to two dances. I am also there for her when she is down and i make sure I know what happened and then try to help. If the guy you like does any of these things or singles you out in any way he probably likes you. and trust me I am a guy so i know all about it.
Let him know how you feel... will make it easier on him in the end
Tell one of your friends to corner him and ask him if he likes you while you hide somewhere.
Maybe tell the other one that likes you you're not really interested in him
