Because guys shouting out their feelings from the rooftops is a fantasy that just doesn’t exist outside the realm of the silver screen.
Much as guys love to moan about women’s tendency to drop subtle hints instead of saying what’s on their mind, when it comes to matters of the heart, they aren’t what you’d call verbose either. Rather than settle down for a deep mushy talk, they’d rather show their feelings through their actions instead. If you’re having trouble decoding his behavior, here’s a handy list of seven signs that he’s into you:
Your Instagram Notifications feed is filled with his name
As is your Facebook feed. A sureshot sign if there ever was one that he has been virtually checking you out and he likes what he sees.
He messages you often
For trivial reasons and replies back within nanoseconds. Either he secretly tutored under Superman on how to type at the speed at light or he’s genuinely interested in what you have to say and wants to keep the conversation going.
He doesn’t let you pay the bill
Which would ordinarily have been written off under chivalry, but if he’s fighting tooth and nail to only cover your tab out of all the other girls sitting at the table, you might want to take the hint.
He doesn’t like you hanging out with other guys
Depending on whether you like him back, you could put him out of his misery. Or well, you could just play it out a bit; we’d be lying if we said we didn’t secretly dig guys going all jealous.
He loves to show you off
Nothing spells admirer as well as a guy who loves to sing your praises to all his friends.
He takes an interest in all your hobbies
Seeing as guys are genetically programmed to hate changing rooms, the only reason he spent the past eight hours on a Sunday traipsing in a mall is because he is genuinely into you. You might want to hold onto this one.
He pauses his video game just to reply to you
As old and clichéd as time, and every bit as true.
P.S. You owe Cupid big time for finding you this perfect specimen of a guy who will actually let something come in between him and his GTA 5 highscore. They just don’t make ‘em like that anymore.
