While everybody has their own subjective experiences about love, a common thing, the feeling of ‘JOY’ prevails regardless of all the miscellaneous aspects (color, region, class, caste, etc).

Clubbing together various studies and personal experiences, we lay down before you some of the proven tricks that will let you know if he secretly likes you or not.

Further, you’ll also come across the body language signs, because a bet can be placed on how inquisitive girls can be when it comes to a ‘whether or not situation’ of a guy having a secret eye on them.

30 Signs that he Secretly Likes You…

30 might seem a big number, but nothing is ever enough when it comes to a ‘man’, and to make matters worse when it comes to a man ‘liking someone’. 

The man can be a fellow worker, student, or in interesting cases, your ex-boyfriend. You feel butterflies in your stomach, whenever he talks to you, and now you wish to know how he feels. 

30 signs that he secretly likes you

Things can become a little uncanny when you have no option left, except for approaching him directly. Even so, you would want to avoid this situation and look out for easier ways! We presume that 30 secret signs that he likes you shouldn’t be less. 

1. The direction of his feet

Okay! We begin from the end. The Feet. Yes! And this is how it goes… If a guy is into you, his body on a subconscious level will be faced towards you. 

Whenever you are conversing with each other, take a very quick look at the direction of his feet, if his feet have a similar angle as the body, directed towards you, then you be ready for some passionate stuff. 

2. Try giving him a gentle touch

For someone who likes you, a brush-like touch will never be a problem. Touch is considered to be the simplest, yet erotic acts of intimacy. While you might be loving it, it can be either of any feelings for your man.

You can give him a high-five, or initiate a hand-shake, or it can be a general touch on his muscular arm. 

 Pay close attention to how he reacts after you set the action, if he feels a bit uncomfortable, then you might want to focus on other 29 signs, but if he’s completely okay with it and reciprocates your touch, it’s a win-win scenario. 

3. Ask him about any important date

A guy who likes you, will not forget anything important related to you! Whether it’s a date or a day that is close to your heart, chances are that he’ll remember at least 85% of them.

While you’re chit-chatting with him, throw him questions about your birthday or your favorite day of the week.

Or there’s another proven trick that you can put into use, tell him that you have got a really important meeting in the next 5 days and that it will open wonderful opportunities for you, ask him to ping you up, and give a reminder. Wait for days to pass, and check if he remembers doing so. 

If he truly likes you on a secret level, he’ll never leave a chance to impress you! However, do not try experimenting this for a real meeting, because if the tables turn, it might take a toll on your career! 

4. Are you the same person?

guy who has a secret crush on you will try to make modifications in his behavior to galvanize you. You just need to convert your mind into a note maker and very closely observe his actions and behavior in public. Compare that with how he behaves when he’s around you! If there’s a discrepancy in the two situations, then you’ve hit the Jackpot! 

To take an example: The man is a socially outgoing, talkative, and always people-oriented. But when he’s around you, he hardly utters a word and always runs out of topics to talk. 

Yes, girl! That’s a potential cue that you shouldn’t trip on.

5. Change something about yourself

If he likes you secretly, he’ll quickly notice that there’s something different about you. A discourse starting with ‘Hey! you look different today…..’ or ‘Am I noticing it right? Have you changed your……’ can also be the start of you two love birds mingling around. 

You can make a change in your hairstyle, dressing sense, put up a lens, your typical food habits, or the simplest would be making a minute change in your way of talking and addressing people. Despite anything you do, if his eyes can catch in the change in you then it’s your time to rise and shine.

6. Ask him for help

Call him out in a state of emergency and urgent help, if he bails out on you, then you better know what to do with him. 

A man who secretly likes you will never think twice before extending a hand of help. He’ll find ways to help you even if there’s nothing to do.

7. Introduce him to a friend

Take him to meet a female friend of yours, one that is exceptionally gorgeous. Switch on your Sherlock Holmes mode and observe his reactions. If he’s uninterested, it’ll easily show up in his behavior. However, if your man starts talking more to your friend than he talks to you, then this my dear, is a red flag. 

Being with a guy who jumps from one woman to another, whenever he sees a more beautiful one should never be fit to be the love of your life. Kick him out of your life, because you know you deserve better.

8. Ask him about his dream girlfriend

Whenever you’re around him, start a conversation about what ideal qualities would he prefer in his dream girl. 

If he points out the characteristics similar to that of yours, then he’s indirectly referring to you as his lady love.

While some guys can intentionally strike a flirtatious attempt at this question, others might unconsciously refer to the points that are alike you. This can be the biggest clue of all times. 

9. Are you mirroring for me?

According to a behavioral study, a small act of mimicry is an indicator of attraction and this is true to a great context.

Take a close look at his gestures, way of talking, reacting, movement of hands and legs. Do you see a similarity in his deportment? Especially one that is significantly different from how he naturally acquits? There you go, this can be considered as a secret sign that he likes you. Phew! 

10. Strike a convo

In this busy world, no one will bother about you, other than the one who likes you and is drawn towards you. Drop a text to him at any given point of time, and note the time taken by him to respond. 

A person who hardly cares about what you say, will either give a very vague and boring reply usually by taking the maximum amount of avoidance time. Whereas, if he’s into you, he’ll try to revert as soon as he can, with his interest and excitement hidden in the message. Try spotting that!

11. Make his legs move

As they show in movies, a fascinated guy will keep a track of where you go and at what time (of course not in a dangerous way). He’ll pay usual visits to the place, so that he gets to meet you, making it seem like a pleasant accident. 

If you want to check how this works, try incorporating your routine places very smartly when you talk, if you see him pass by 3-4 times, understand that this is not a coincidence. 

12. Ask him to hang out with you

Keep asking him to hang out with you and never miss a chance. 

guy who has a secret attraction to you like a magnet will always find time to be with you. If he’s uninterested, then he’ll bring every possible excuse from the planet to keep away from you.

Since we are keeping every possible situation in mind, another one can be that he’s genuinely busy and finds it difficult to accommodate a hang out session with you in his schedule. In that scenario, ask him about his free time, and reschedule your meets. You’ll know if he’s avoiding you intentionally. 

As they say, you’re never too busy for someone you truly love

13. Where are you sitting?

You go on lunch with him. He pulls out your chair before sitting, makes you comfortable, and then goes and sits on the front one. Alert! 

Notice his seating position, whenever you go out with him. If he’s captivated by you, he will choose to sit next to you rather than on the chair kept in the front. 

While it can be a matter of chance and personal choices at times, but if this action sets into place every single time, then I’m afraid, you are not the one.

14. Interaction with his friends

It might be a little absurd to confront your guy about his feelings, but what if we present you with an easy-peasy alternative?

Wait for the time when he is not around his friends, walk up to them, and try extracting answers to your feelings. If they respond to you with phrases like, ‘Yeah! He keeps talking about you all the time and does not shut up’, aha, look at the smile that creeps on your face! This is a sign that he secretly likes you.

Also, take note of how well aware his friends are about you. If he feels nothing special for you, then he wouldn’t mention details about you, more than just being a friend.

15. Catch his eyes

guy who likes you secretly will always be in search of moments to roll his eyes over you a little. However, boys have a ‘thing’, they won’t let the girl notice their sightseeing.  

Girls are born with a sixth sense, and immediately known if someone is been keeping an eye on them. As soon as you catch him checking you out, quickly turn your face towards him. Oops! He trips and glitches and clears his throat, it is a clear indication that he admires you from the core of his heart.

16. Social media is your next clue

Does he post stories with your pictures in them? And Does his social media evince a newly found love for a song that is your favorite? Does he fill your comment section with flattering comments? 

Yeah! You got it if you notice these changes in his account, then he’s probably giving you a signal of his deepest interests in you. Get going with the flow!

17. Are you fine?

When we’re sad our actions say it all, if you’re sitting with a lower head and all gloomy, he’ll be the first person to ask you the problem.

Guys see it as a once in a million-time chance to grab if they can solve your problem and put a smile on your face.

If he always has your back, then he’s the one!

18. Does he annoy you?

Believe it or not, guys love to tease those whom they like. If he keeps talking to you about every silly thing on this planet till you get out of your wits all annoyed, then this a happy sign girl! 

Men can become introverted when it comes to showcasing their idiosyncratic mutter. They do it only in front of those, with whom they feel comfortable. If he does it around you, then guess who just got lucky?

Cheer up and find the love in his stupidity.

19. Count his smiles

It doesn’t mean that you go like 1,2,3…10 smiles and so on. 

Just check if he has that bright sunny smile every time he sees you, with a light pink color on his cheeks. If a man likes you, he will try greeting you with a gentle smile, every time your eyes meet. That is not an impressionable gesture, it is just his natural happiness and a flush of hormones that are trying to get out of his mouth.

20. Do you agree? Yes…!

Another secret sign of his liking

If the level of his agreeability to everything you say is touching heights, this means that he’s here to win your heart!

If girls are blessed with a sixth sense, then guys have an innate ability to know that women can never listen to a NO from the other side.

Keeping this in mind, he never picks up a debate on anything you say, even if his opinions slightly differ to your thoughts, he will always express his amiability to your words. Or in the other case, he’ll respect your opinion along with providing a hint about how he feels different.

Some of these gestures can be opening doors before entering a place, changing the walking street side to avoid traffic, holding hands in-crowd, extending a hand of help, and looking out for any dangers that you can be exposed to. 

Apart from these, if any actions make you feel extra care and love, then your prince charming is waiting for you. 

2. Eye contact

Eye contact is one of the most intense forms of body language signs to show someone that you love them. 

If he looks deeply and comfortably in your eyes while talking during long periods, this is a secret sign that the feelings of love are triggered within him, and that he’s completely into you at the moment.

Intense eye contact is can be very beautiful. According to research, 4 seconds of deep eye contact can indicate feelings of passion and fondness.

3. Sweat

This an ordinary level knowledge that sweat is equivalent to nerves. Given our experiences of sweating, a hypothesis can be formulated that we perspire mostly because we are scared or nervous.

When you are around someone you like, it triggers the release of monoamines in the body, making you sweat more.

If he sweats nearly every time he is around you, then it is an obvious body language sign that he likes you and even his body refuses to hide the fact.

4. Larger Pupils

If you know what dilation is, then you also know why it occurs. This is a bodily response that sets into action when you are attracted to somebody.

Whenever you meet him, observe his pupils getting larger, this is a body language sign that your guy is super excited to meet you, at a more basic level, to see you.

Raised eyebrows are another secret body language sign that is a potential clue to you. Every time you meet him, he raises his eyebrows so that he can keep his eyes wide open on a subconscious level to pay better attention to what you say and how you look.

5. Deep breathing

Our body is affected the most when we are around our favorite people! 

If a guy is interested in you, he will be excited to see you and this will result in his blood to flow faster. Now, get into some 8th standard biology. Whenever there’s an increase in our blood flow rate, our body sends us a signal which communicates to us that we are losing oxygen. 

This is why he will face breathing issues since most of his oxygen has already been sent to the heart and other organs.

Never thought that biology will save your date, Did ya? 

6. Everything you say is funny

Just like a guy knows that agreeing with women makes them happy, he also knows that laughing or smirking to their every joke, whether good or bad, makes them even happier. And why would a guy do it if he doesn’t like you? 

If you are smart enough, then you know that you do not possess a good sense of humor, but still, he laughs at whatever you say.

What could this be a sign of? Everything you say amuses him to a different level, and this means that he’s trying to get a pass ticket from you. Because obviously, guys are the most complicated creatures on the face of the earth. There, I’ve said it.

7. Constantly fixing himself

When we like someone, we make sure that we look good and presentable in front of them. We become nervous and self-conscious and keep looking for our hair, dress, and face to look perfect.

Guys who like you are no exception to this body language sign. Next time when you visit him, notice how frequently does he set his hair and outfit in an attempt to make them look good. 

Most boys won’t admit, that they want to look their best when they are around the girl who controls their heart, but this is true. 

Irrespective of how good he looks or how well dressed he is, he’ll always feel that something is out of place.

8. Change in voice

Do you examine a noticeable change of voice in the man who is supposed to have a crush on you?

Because of the general convention that women are attracted to men to have a coarse voice, men try to change the tonal quality of their voice, usually to one that is low-pitched. 

This is an unintentional instinctive response, that will help you spot if he secretly likes you through his body language

9. Jealousy

An undoubted feature of being in love with someone remains the act of Jealousy. 

Has it ever happened, that he demonstrates a different behavior whenever you talk to any other guy? Yes, that’s jealousy!

Men get jealous because they feel a sense of agitation that they cannot take the place of the other guy that you are talking to.

If there are times when he shows those slightly annoyed and angry emotions whenever you are with someone else, just know that this is another indicator of his secret emotions for you.

10. Pet Names

Did he ever show an inclination towards the preference of calling each other with pet names? 

If yes, then this the secret body language sign, that you’ve been looking for! Names like honey, darling, dear, etc. is an indication of intensifying romance.

A man who does that will never leave you alone under any circumstances. Don’t miss out on the opportunity when it knocks your door.

3. Focuses on You

He will provide you with a nurturing impetus and the necessary help you need, just to push you towards your dreams.
