10 Surefire Signs A Guy Is Flirting With You
Ever wondered whether that cute guy is flirting with you or just being nice? No doubt you want to be able to judge whether he wants your number, or whether he just talks like this to everyone. Sometimes it’s hard to read body language and gauge whether we’re being flirted with, or whether the guy just feels like he should be polite. To help make your dating life easier, we’ve come up with an essential list of the 10 obvious signs that a guy is flirting with you.
1. His Smile Is Lovely
We’re not talking about an average smile here that he uses on the store clerk when he’s paying for his groceries; we’re talking about a lovely smile that he surely only uses when he’s into us.
If you notice that a guy is smiling at you – and smiling brilliantly – it’s actually one of the best signs that he’s flirting with you. He might be smiling from a distance, or he might be smiling whilst talking to you. Either way, he’s interested and perhaps it’s time that you reciprocated his interest.
2. He Blushes
Aww, it’s so easy to feel sorry for a guy when he blushes around you. But the shy blush is actually a one of those sure signs a guy is flirting with you – or at least trying to flirt. The blush is a bodily function that is entirely natural; the guy certainly can’t fake a blush, so if he’s blushing, he’s definitely into you.
If you’re interested too, rather than feeling sorry for him, let him know you’re interested.
3. He Makes Eye Contact
Eye contact can be hard to read, because many of us are conditioned from a young age to believe that eye contact means we have done something bad. Our teachers used to eyeball us whenever we had annoyed them, and our bosses eyeball us whenever we’ve messed up at work. And anyone who has been forced to watch a war movie will know that drill sergeants just love to eyeball new recruits to make them terrified!
But when a guy is making a lot of eye contact with you, you should take this as a given that he’s interested. People naturally make eye contact during a conversation – after all, we don’t look up at the sky when asking how someone’s day was – but if he’s making eye contact that seems longer than normal, it means he’s flirting.
4. He Checks You Out
Another one of sure signs a guy is flirting with you is when he checks you out. Have his eyes just seriously wandered up and down your body? Did they zone in on your breasts at one point, even for a millisecond? Yup, they did. He seriously went there. He’s flirting with you!
5. He Lets You Know He’s Single
Next one of clear signs a guy is flirting with you is when he lets you know that he is single. If a guy is interested in you, he’ll want to drop in the fact that he’s single at some point in this conversation. Naturally, he will need to do it discreetly, as opposed to saying, “Hi, I’m Mike, I’m single and ready to mingle,” but he will slip it in there at some point. He might casually refer back to his ex-girlfriend or his last relationship. Once he does bear his single tag, you know he’s keen.
6. He Says You Have Things In Common
If a guy isn’t flirting with you, he’s unlikely to pick up on the things you have in common and zone in on them. Conversely, if he’s into you, he’ll stress your commonalties.
“You like blues music? No way, me too! What? You like sushi? Get out of here! I do too! Hey, have you ever tried that new sushi restaurant on third avenue?”
Naturally, opposites do attract, but if a flirtatious guy is interested in you, he’s going to need commonalities. Moreover, when he finds out that your have common interests, he’s going to get really excited and animated.
7. He Remembers The Details
It’s really easy to tell if a guy is flirting with you when he brings up a little, seemingly insignificant thing you said earlier in the conversation. The fact that he has retained this info is a suggestion that he’s into you and wants to find out all about you.
8. He Tries To Impress You
Another one of obvious signs a guy is flirting with you is when he tries to make a good impression. If a guy isn’t interested in you, he’s less likely to try and impress you with some of the things he’s done in life. But if he’s digging you, he’ll be looking to wow you with some of his tales and feats. At first you might think he’s just showing off; but if he keeps on trying to impress you, it’s a surefire sign that he’s interested in you.
9. He Stays By Your Side
Naturally, sometimes if a guy won’t leave your side at a party, it can be creepy. But you can make exceptions if he’s a cute, nice, charming guy who seems to be into you. If he’s given the opportunities to leave the conversation but chooses not to, it’s a sign that he’s flirting with you.
If he follows you to the bathroom then, yes, that is creepy!
10. He Goes Out Of His Way To Be Nice To You
And finally, another one of clear signs a guy is flirting with you is when he goes out of his way to be nice to you. Has he offered to go to the bar and buy you a drink? That’s nice. That’s a sign that he likes you.
But what if he offers you a ride home? Now that is a surefire sign that he’s into you.
Even better, if you’ve mentioned that you’ve got a leaky faucet at home and he’s offered to come and fix it for you, it basically means that he wants to see more of you. Now you know.
