Humans are generally afraid of rejection, and men are not excluded.

Of course, based on societal expectations, men are often more inclined to go after a lady they want. But that’s not often the case.

In some instances, men can also be shy to tell you how they feel about you, especially if you already formed a platonic relationship or they are just shy.

But you see, when someone likes you, you may not be completely oblivious because while it may not be blatant, it will be apparent.

However, on the other hand, you may be reading too much into nice gestures. So, there’s always the question, “Does he have a crush on me, or am I overthinking it?”

If you’re asking this question, you’re in the right place. I’ll show you clear signs that indicate he has a crush on you.

10 Clear Signs He Has a Crush on You

1. You Catch Him Stealing Glances At You

When we like someone, we always want to look at them. Looking at them gives us so much joy, and it’s also a way to get to know them.

So, if a guy has a crush on you, he’ll often stare at you when you are not watching and look away when you catch him.

2. He Seeks to Spend Time with You

If you’re asking, “How do I confirm if he has a crush on me?” the answer is whether he wants to spend time with you.

If he doesn’t want to spend time with you, that clearly indicates he doesn’t feel anything for you.

But if he goes out of his way to spend time with you, he definitely likes you.

Of course, he may not always be able to spend time with you physically due to conflicting schedules, but does he constantly want to talk to you electronically? That’s another indication.

A guy with a crush on you will often suggest hanging out with you. Even if he’s too shy to do so alone or scared you might be uncomfortable hanging out with him alone, he’ll often suggest doing it in a group to be around you.

3. He Seeks to Have Conversations with You

As I mentioned earlier, physical meetings are not always possible, but he’ll at least initiate calls and chat if he likes you.

But whatever the case, he’ll often want to speak to you physically or electronically.

He’ll ask you many questions because he wants to know who you are, and he will also tell you things about himself because he wants you to know him.

4. He Acts Jealous of Other Guys Around You

A healthy dose of jealousy when we have feelings for someone is expected. So, this is a major giveaway.

However, this is sometimes subtle, and you might not notice if he is not so blatant about it. Some people are less emotional than others, so he might not make it clear how he feels about seeing other guys around you.

If it’s clear, then you have your answer. If not, watch out for nervousness and slight irritation when you are with or talking about another guy in his presence.

Does he stare at you with a frown when you are with someone else? That can be a giveaway.

Another sign is how he reacts when you mention hanging out with another guy.

5. He Tries to Impress You

Guys often feel the need to impress women, especially the ones they like.

So, if he’s showing off something he believes will impress you, he likely cares about you.

It could be a skill, mental prowess, or some form of creativity. He might even brag about something he has or has done when you are in earshot to impress you.

Now, this is different from an utterly braggadocious person, so pay attention to when it’s too much. That is a proud person, not someone trying to put their best foot forward for a girl they like.

6. He Compliments You

Firstly, he will notice things about you because he stares at you often or pays attention to you.

And when he likes them, he’ll likely compliment you.

For instance, if he notices you got a new hairdo or changed your wristwatch and mentions it, he probably likes you more than just as a friend.

7. He Is Always Near You in a Group

Another sign he has a crush on you is if he’s often around you in a group setting.

There’s no way it’s a coincidence that you’re always near each other in a group setting. You’re either making it happen, or he is.

If you’re not, then chances are he is because he wants to be around you.

8. He Is Nervous Around You

A little nervousness is normal around someone you have feelings for. And it happens to men and women. 

If a guy likes you, he might fidget a little in your presence. For instance, he may play with his nails, kick at rocks or move any part of his body more than usual when he’s around or talking to you.  

9. He Jokes About Liking You

Some crushes give obvious signs that they could take back if it doesn’t work out.

As I said earlier, people don’t often express their feelings because they fear rejection. So, he may make jokes about it, so if you don’t feel the same, it wasn’t like he was serious in the first place.

For instance, he may jokingly tell you to get with him because your man is not out there or to stop wasting time with deadbeat guys as he’s the best one for you.

Of course, he’ll often say it between laughs, so it can seem like he’s joking, but he may be serious.

10. He Is Constantly Smiling Around You

If he lights up when he sees you or when you enter a room, it’s a huge indication he has a crush on you.

Final Notes

When you see a bunch of these signs, the guy in question likely has a massive crush on you. But if all you have is a sign or two, I’d proceed cautiously; he’s probably just being nice.

Also, humans are complex, so even with these signs, he still may not have a crush on you. Maybe that’s how he treats his female friends, which is also something to note. Be sure he doesn’t treat everyone the same way. If he does, you are not special to him.

But even if he didn’t, again, humans are complex. So, if you decide to take any action, make sure to be ready for an unfavourable answer as well. But then again, that’s love, isn’t it? It’s a risk, but it’s a risk worth taking.
