When a guy is interested in a girl, does he act differently around her? How is a girl supposed to know if a guy likes her? I feel really clueless when it comes to guys, they just confuse me so much. Any pointers will be appreciated. Thanks!
It's so hard to define how a guy acts when he is around someone he likes because every guy is different. SOme are more playful, others tease you, others are straight out flirty. you see it all depends. Most likely you always get a feeling. There is just something that gives you that hint.
ohhhhhhh yeah, i can totally tell you. it depends if this guy is outgoing or shy. if hes shy, hell avoid you and not say much to you or maybe even one day make fun of you or say he dosnt like you. if hes outgoing, hell talk with you alot and ask you stuff about ur life like "are u in sports? is that fun? what are u polish or italian?" and stuff like that. im not too sure if my description of what a outgoing guy is accurate or not cuz im not outgoing (yet), but i was shy around a girl i liked alot, and im sure thats how a shy guy will act. i hope i helped you!
oh and uh, remember some guys dont have feelings and just want sex so watch out for that, unless ur into that, no ofense or anything just saying.
Hmmm.. well from my personal perspective there are many things that I personally do when I'm around a girl I'm interested in. I've seen a lot of guys just go nuts and fall all over girls and use blatant pick-up lines "You look good, what are you doing later?" and then some guys being so paralyzed to speak to the girl or say something incredibly stupid around her. I guess I fall in the middle of those two extremes. For me it depends on the signals I get from the girl (i.e. if she's receptive to me talking to her, I'll take more risks in things I say etc.), but normally I find myself staring a little too long at her (when she's not talking anymore, etc.) or striking up a conversation that is completely inane in relation to our surroundings leaving me struggling to find words to keep talking to her. I think a good sign that a guy likes you is if he makes a genuine effort to talk about things you're interested in and tries to continue the conversation no matter what the cost (even making him look stupid). Also, as a general rule you can tell a lot about a person's attitude to you from their eyes -- you might want to pay attention to that too. With all that said, it's also important to realize that humans are pretty much the same... what do YOU do when you're interested in a GUY? Over time I've found that we do many of the same things in our efforts to catch the opposite sex's attention that you girls do. Try thinking about it from the opposite side and see if that helps. And, more importantly, use your instinct. Good luck.
Personally I start pacing. Back and forth, if standing up. I usually try to avoid eye contact, though my FWB says she doesn't mind if I stare. Oh I also start cleaning. Generally straightening stuff up.
A couple things that I do when I'm around a girl that I like. Make lots of eye contact, but not too much that it starts to freak her out. I try to let them know that I'm somewhat interested, while playing hard to get at the same time. Girls are crazy like that, when they know that they have someone, they lose interest. Gotta keep them guessing all the time, make it a challenge for them. Sucks that you have to play games, but it seems to be the only way to win a girl over. Tell a girl how you feel about her too early and she'll jet.
3 things I've almost found universal. Nervousness, Protectiveness and Seriousness.
The first has to do with wording, overall body language and how they interact with the girl. A lot of guys will be nervous, fumble in their speech, basically they're not really sure how to handle the situation even if they've been in the situation before.
Second, and this may be harder to see since it usually happenes behind the girl's back. Any comment or action that the guy consideres an act 'against' the girl he will defend against. If someone makes a silly joke to the girl that he finds offensive he'll defend her, even if she didn't mind the comment. Or if someone's hitting on her that she doesn't like, he may try and steer the guy away from her either by talking to him or just talking to her if it's in public. (Which is in a way funny, cause there's a guy that I know is interested in my girlfriend, and he recently had a 'talk' with a another guy that was trying to flirt with her.)
Third, if a guy is with a group of his friends and they joke around, and he doesn't, and his friends are giving him a hard time about it. Chances are he is acting in a manner which he usually doesn't. Probably to appear mature because he fears his regular behaviour may not go over well with the particular girl.
I am sure there's more but these I've seen in a lot of different age groups.
Yeah it does depend on the situation. Like I said if I know from previous conversations and after a while I start to like her I try to be funny. Emphasis on try. But if its a girl I just met, I am serious. And I search for days trying to find something to say.
