When you are falling for a guy, you want to know if he feels the same way. Unfortunately, you are not comfortable enough with him to just ask. After all, he could tell you that he does not feel the same way and does not want to date you. You want to know the signs he is fighting his feelings for you without having to just ask him how he feels. If you notice some of the following signs, then there is an excellent chance that your crush has feelings for you, whether he plans on acting on them or not.
1. He Remembers All of the Details
Weeks ago, you mentioned that you liked a particular food. Although you don’t even remember saying it, he does. When you are with a guy who always remembers the little details, you know that he cares about you on some level. Most guys do not naturally notice little details or the things that people say. If you are talking to a guy who remembers all of these details, it is one of the signs he is fighting his feelings for you.
2. Other Girls Are Just His Friends
If a guy is interested, he does not want you to think that he has a girlfriend or another crush. He might have friends who are girls, but he will make sure that you know that they are just friends. When he talks about another woman or introduces someone, he will say things like, “She is a friend of mine.” This is because he wants to make sure that you know that he does not have a girlfriend and that the friend is not a threat to you.
3. His Attitude Changes If You Talk About Other Guys
When someone has feelings, they will become jealous when you talk about other guys. Most likely, he won’t show that he is jealous directly. Instead, he might suddenly become quiet or seem uncomfortable. He might lose his train of thought and falter in what he is saying because he feels jealous about any other guy in your life.
4. He Texts You
The amount of time he spends talking to you shows how much he cares. If he is interested in you, he will be texting you every few days just to see how you are doing. If he does not like texting a lot, then he is calling you or messaging you online just to talk to you.
5. He Looks at You All the Time
When someone likes you, he has a hard time keeping his eyes off you. He might be fighting his feelings because he values your friendship or is in a relationship, but his eyes are still drawn to you whenever you walk into the room. You will notice him gazing at you when he thinks that you will not notice, or his eyes will constantly meet yours from across the room.
6. He Is Overly Protective
When you are just friends with someone, you care that they are safe, but you trust them to take care of themselves. When you really, really like someone, logic is tossed out the window. Even though he logically knows that you can walk to your car in the school parking lot, he will still walk with you to make sure that you are protected. If you have to walk home alone, he will always offer to walk with you.
7. He Always Tries to Help You Out
Nothing is harder than seeing someone you love stressed out or struggling. When you are going through a difficult time, he cannot just watch you struggle. Instead, he offers to help you out. He might offer to drive you to work when your car breaks down or help you build a bookshelf when you move to a new house. Whatever the reason, he is constantly trying to find ways to help you out.
8. He Asks Personal Questions
When you are just friends with someone, it doesn’t really matter what their goals in life are or how their childhood was. If you secretly want to date someone, you are interested in the answers to these questions. Even if he is fighting his feelings for you, he will find himself asking intimate questions about your greatest dreams, fears and desires.
9. He Looks Away When You Look at Him
He might look at you when you are not paying attention, but he does not want to be caught doing it. He is afraid that you will figure out about his feelings. Because of this, he will look away whenever you look at him directly.
10. He Genuinely Cares
When a guy is interested in you, he wants you to be happy and healthy. He never wants to see you sick, sad or depressed.
11. He Gives You Thoughtful Gifts
He won’t give you a new car or jewelry because that would reveal his feelings, but he does give you small gifts. This might be a cup of your favorite coffee or a soundtrack from your favorite movie.
12. He Believes You Can Do Anything
When someone is in love, they think that their crush is capable of anything. If he likes you, he really believes that you are capable of anything that you set your mind to.
13. He Always Seems to Know a Lot About You
If he really likes you, then he wants to know everything about you. He know when your birthday is, your favorite class and what your relationship to your family is like.
14. He Wants to Look His Best Around You
He might be trying to hide his feelings, but he can’t help some of his subconscious mannerisms. He might fix his hair or check the mirror more often when you are around. When he know that you will be at an event, he deliberately dresses to impress.
15. He Is Cold Sometimes
If he is trying to fight his feelings for you, he may go overboard sometimes by being excessively cold or reserved.
