There’s no question that trying to figure out if a guy is into you or not is mind-numbingly difficult.
It’s so hard to tell if someone likes you that some women have avoided dating for years. How can you tell? How do you know? What if you are wrong?
It’s all just a little too much to even think about enjoying the prospect of meeting someone new.
Sometimes it all comes down to the body language of men.
Here are 18 body language clues that say he’s interested in you – definitely. So you can stop wondering and start doing something about it.
1) Eyebrow Raise
If a man cocks his eyebrows at you, it means you intrigue him.
2) Parting Lips
He’s imagining himself moving in for the kiss. Plus, it makes him look more “open” to you, so he can appear more approachable.
3) Flaring Nostrils
This is a primal instinct that has hung around since the stone age – when men get excited their nostrils flare.
If he’s showing off in front of you, he’s definitely interested. Peacocking, showboating, showing off: whatever you call it, he’s putting on that show for you.
A man who likes you will constantly fix his tie, jacket, and shirt to make sure he is presentable to you.
6) Fixing His Hair
Playing with his hair? Oh yeah, he’s into you. Men will continue to “groom” themselves to show you that they want to look their best just for you.
7) Wide Open Eyes
In addition to raised eyebrows, men who are interested in you will listen with their eyes wide open as if to take more of you in. It’s a good sign that he’s a good listener for your own future reference.
8) Fixing his Socks
It seems funny but watch to see if a man adjusts his socks. He’ll leave no part of him lagging behind if he’s got a thing for you.
9) Standing Tall
Another primal move: men like to show off their stature as a way to win over a woman. He’ll be sticking his chest out, and his hips will be square, and he’ll stand every chance he gets to show you his body.
10) Checking out the Goods
If you are still wondering if you likes you, watch to see if he checks out your body. He will. They all do, so don’t get offended.
11) Spread Legs
Men have a funny way of showing women that they are interested in them; for example, men will sit across from you with their legs spread wide open as if to show you their crotch. Weird, but true.
12) Hands on Hips
Power posing is a thing men do all the time subconsciously. Like standing tall, they want to make sure you see the best side of them.
13) Playing with His Clothes
If he’s nervous because he likes you, he’ll fix his shirt over and over again, and he might even button and unbutton his jacket to try to release some nervous energy.
14) Touching His Face
When men are excited their faces because more tingly and he’ll start to touch his face and lips in a subconscious way.
15) Fiddle with his Glass
More nervous energy trying to make its way out of the body, men will play with anything around them to let the energy out: glass, bottle, watch, keys.
16) Leaning In
He’ll sit on the edge of his seat while he talks to you and he’ll lean in to let you know that you are interesting to him. Don’t be weirded out by this; he’s genuinely interested in listening to you.
17) Touching Your Back
If you walk near each other, he’ll place his hand near the small of your back to guide you through a noisy party or bar. Plus, he wants to show all the other men that he’s got this. Plus, it’s a reason to touch you and seem like a gentleman all at the same time.
18) Offers His Coat
Offering you his coat is just one small way he can show you that he’s interested in you.
Anything he does that puts himself out, like offering you his food, a ride home, or walking you to the bus, will let you know that he’s definitely interested in you because he’s putting your needs before his own.
