When a guy pays attention to the things that make you happy, it is a clear sign that he is interested in you. He will often try to do the things that make you happy. Sometimes, this can even mean he will end up doing things that go against his liking.

3. His Body Language Is Different When You Are Around

The body language of a person can reveal a lot about their feelings. If the guy is interested in you, he will make eye contact with you. He will also be on the lookout for ways to remain near you.

When he is interested in you, he will try to find out if you are single or have someone in your life. In most cases, a guy may not ask the question upfront. But he will try to find out your relationship status in a subtle manner. If he does not care for you, he will not bother to know about your dating life or be bothered with your thoughts on commitment.

5. He Reveals His Relationship Status

9. He Is A Little Possessive

No guy can stand to see his girl hitting on someone else or another guy flirting with her, even if he has not expressed his feelings for her yet. If your guy reacts possessively or shows traces of jealousy when you pay attention to another guy, know that he’s beginning to like you. He may even pass an unflattering comment about the guy. Do not read too much into the comment as he is just trying to find out your reaction to his comment. Rather, pay attention to the reason that led him to react in this manner.

Guys who truly care for someone will treat them differently than someone who is just their friend.
