Guys really aren’t all that hard to figure out. When it comes to whether or not they’re into you, it’s pretty clear even from the get-go, not some mystery you need to unravel. In other words, if they like you, it’ll be obvious — just pay attention.
1. HE’LL ACT LIKE IT.
When a guy is into you, even if he’s shy, he’s going to give you subtle signs he’s into you. He’ll text you for no reason or try to be at least some small part of your life, even if it just means liking all of your social media posts.
2. HE’LL STRAIGHT UP TELL YOU.
Guys usually go for what they want. When they have set their sights on you, you’ll know it because he’ll be asking you to get drinks or telling you that he’s into you, leaving the ball in your court.
3. HE WON’T PLAY GAMES.
A game playing guy isn’t all that into you. It’s a harsh truth, but if he’s playing games, it’s likely because he doesn’t know how he feels about you yet so isn’t sure whether it’s worth dedicating actual time and energy to. Don’t bother.
4. YOU CAN FEEL IT.
You have your intuition, but you don’t tap into it as often as you should because often times, it’s easier not to (especially if it’s telling you something you don’t want to hear). If a guy is into you, you’ll just know — your gut will tell you.
5. HE’LL PUT IN EFFORT.
Even if you just met a guy and have only hung around him a few times, he’ll be putting in some sort of effort. Whether he’s talking to you across your table of friends or asking if you need a drink refill, if he’s into you, he’s putting in at least the minimal amount of work to be able to interact with you more.
6. HE’LL GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU.
If he wants to talk to you, he’ll text you, call you, Facebook message you or something. If he’s not calling you, it’s not because he’s lost your number or too busy to find five extra seconds in his day — it’s because he just doesn’t want to. You know what they say — where there’s a will, there’s a way.
7. HE WON’T SEND MIXED SIGNALS.
If a guy is playing hot and cold with you, then he just isn’t as into you as he’s telling you. When a guy is into you, and I mean really into you, he’s going to put his all into taking it to the next level and you won’t ever have to figure him out.
8. HE WON’T RISK LOSING YOU.
A guy will do all he can to make sure that you stay just as interested in him as he is in you. If he’s making himself less available or is pulling away from you, then he’s trying to slow your interest in him to keep things from escalating.
9. HE WON’T LEAD YOU ON.
If a guy is truly interested in having some sort of relationship with you but isn’t at all serious about it, he’ll be honest about his intentions. He does this because he’s into you and he can still have you (if you’re OK with it), but on his own terms.
