Although you were probably brought up on stories about finding your own Prince Charming, the reality is, most guys are not like this.
The first thing to understand about men is, they are not all the hearts and flowers guys, Prince Charming or the romantic bloke that is often depicted in glossy magazines or romantic books or films.
So if you're waiting for the confident and smooth James Bond or the romantic type who is going to declare is undying love to you, write you a romantic poem, sweep you off your feet or roll up on a big white horse and take you off into the sunset or hand you a bunch of red roses, you may be disappointed.
This means that you may have to stop wishing, stop dreaming and start looking for those less obvious, but still reliable body language and behavioral clues.
Either way, you just need to know the answer, one way or another, because that is the only way to quieten your mind, balance your hormones and settle down your emotions.
The trouble is, you cannot always rely on that voice in the back of your head, your mind can be very confusing and all that trying to figure things out can be agonizingly painful.
Sometimes your mind can even make things up.
You may be considering, asking your friends for their advice. But can you really trust, your friends, or will they embarrass you and act all silly, in front of your crush?
Perhaps you already know him, does he live near you, perhaps he is a work colleague or he attends the same school as you.
That can really prove difficult to tell, whether he just wants to be friends or he yearns to date you.
The trouble, with most guys is. They can be so unpredictable, one minute they're blowing hot and then they go all cold on you.
The trouble with dating is. When you're in the friend zone, because you're both at ease it is easy to get on and the conversation just flows naturally.
But the second it becomes a date or a potential date, it can affect you both, and everything becomes completely different and you find yourself trying too hard.
From the guy's point of view, when you are casually speaking or hanging around together, there is no pressure on him to impress you and he kinds of acts naturally.
But when he realizes there is more to it or there could be more to it.
Everything changes, the guy might begin to feel nervous. All of a sudden, they will go into a panic mode or he will become tongue tied, and may appear as he is not bothered, when really he secretly desires you.
2) He will try to get close to you
If he is interested in you, he will try to find every reason and chance available to get closer to you at every opportunity.
This may be instantly obvious or it might be a bit more subtle as you find him gradually edging ever closer to you in a stealth like fashion.
If he is confident, then he may pluck up the courage and walk straight up to you or he may try to edge is way ever closer to you bit by bit.
When a guy likes you, then when they are talking to you they will sometimes subconsciously and unknowingly mirror and copy your body language and action.
4) He will subtly lean in towards you
A good early indication that can be a sign he likes you is, he will tend to lean inwards towards you or face towards you when he his talking to you.
If he's confident in himself and he likes you then if he is sitting he will sit facing you with his knees pointing towards you.
If he feels really relaxed and comfortable around you think he might sit in a relaxed, laid back open legged position.
If he is a bit shy, then he may feel a bit uncomfortable facing you directly and although he will still like you, it may not show it.
So if a man is leaning towards you a lot, then this usually indicates that he is attracted to you and he wants to get a good look at you, plus he likes being up close to you.
You will also probably find as he becomes more at ease and interested in you, he will start to edge closer to you and he will bit by bit begin to turn and stand more facing you.
Therefore, if he gradually begins to turn so he he is facing you then this could signal he is interested in you.
But if he turns to the side whilst you're talking to him and his attention is elsewhere, then that is not a very good sign.
6) He will try to impress you
Most men if they like you, then they will be extra nice to you and they will be on their best
If a guy has approached you and you have already started having a conversation with him, then he might start telling you things about himself.
He may throw into the conversation things about himself that may come across as seeming a bit boastful, or he may go the other way and he might start showing you his more sensitive side.
He might not do this in front of his mates, but he may come across more sensitive and he might be more affectionate when you're alone together.
Sometimes even if you have not asked him a question about him, he may still attempt to tell you things about himself such as
- Where he works
- His personal achievements
- What he is good at
- What kind of car he drives
- And even some of his bad boy moments
Many men feel the need to make an instant good early impression to get your attention so they will go out of their way to try and impress or prove themselves to you.
So don't be put off because this does not necessarily mean he his boasting, some might, but it can also indicate that he is trying to impress you to try to get you interested in him.
However, you have to be a bit careful when a guy appears to be trying to impress you, as it can mean, that his his trying to impress his own ego and mates.
A guy who genuinely likes you, will also be impressed by you, and the things you do and say, and you might find out that he defends you and sticks up for you.
When men are around women. They soon start to try and out compete each other.
This is where there animal like instinct starts to kick in, and most men will want to come across as the strong and the smart Alpha male type.
In the animal kingdom, the strongest make, always gets their mate.
So if you notice that a guy is trying show off to you in front of his mates. Then there is a very good chance that he is trying to impress you.
He may also try to look more stronger and try to depict what he thinks is a real man and the chances are he will dress well to try to make a good impression.
When a man is trying to impress a woman he
He may try to put his mates down, to make himself look the alpha male.
If you're both attracted to each other then you will probably both
Some men might even talk a bit garbage, in their attempt to try and impress you.
Because we all act a bit out of character and a bit over the top in those few early and awkward moments as you both try to make a good first impression.
8) He will try to make you laugh
He will also smile at you a lot and he will do his best to make you laugh, during those ice breaking moments you can sometimes get those awkward silent moments where the conversation comes to an end.
If he really likes you then he will try to reignite a fading conversation and attempt to keep it going, to keep you interested as he knows those first impressions can count.
He might also look to see how you are reacting to some of his jokes or how you're responding to his conversation, to try and
For the man it can seem like he his having an audition as you would in a talent show to get you to like him, where he only has a few minutes to get your attention and impress you.
His energy and positive attitude can also be a sign that he is very interested in you and he will try to be at his very best to impress and entertain you, so he might appear as the life and soul of the party inside but he is attempting to get you interested in him.

Even if a man tries to hide the fact that he is attracted to you he will still subconsciously give it away especially through the eyes.
This means if he makes a lot of eye contact towards you then that is definitely a big sign he finds you attractive.
When a man stares at you because he likes you it will be a nice kind of stare, he may be taken aback by your looks at first, if he really likes you then he won't be able to stop looking at you.

What they might do is, they will initially make eye contact towards you, but the moment you look back at them or catch them, they might look down or away.
However, if they like you then it won't be long before they reestablish their eye contact.
So if they make eye contact towards you, then they break it, then make eye contact again and this pattern can continue then this usually means that they are attracted to you.
