1. Look at the guy's eyebrows
This is not something that he will do consciously, but generally, we tend to raise our eyebrows when we listen to something very interesting or to someone whom we are interested in. If you see that every time he is talking to you his eyebrows are raised, then this is one of the good signs. By raising our eyebrows, we actually try to keep our eyes open while looking at something or someone we like. It is a natural process and your guy will do that if he is interested in you. This is one of the most crucial signs.
2. Eye contact proves he is interested
If he is interested, a guy will always have an eye on you whenever you are around. Sometimes the guy will look away when you catch him staring at you, but then at times, he will maintain eye contact. If he is smiling at you while locking eyes with you, then it is a clear sign that he is really interested in you. Guys always love to maintain eye contact with the girl of their choice, so the next time if you see him looking at you secretly or making eye contact with you directly, you will know he likes you.
3. Speaking a bit louder
It’s nothing like he will start shouting or screaming to get your attention in a crowd. The guy will simply raise his voice a little so that his voice reaches you clearly and you notice him. By speaking a bit louder, he is trying to outdo all other noise and attract your attention. He is not afraid of how others will react because he is only interested in what you think about him.
4. Head held high
If a guy is interested in you, then he will not slouch in front of you. Rather, he will always stand or sit straight with his head level. This is one of the body language signs that show that he is really happy that you are around. Now, it’s up to you whether you want to reciprocate his feelings or you want to go down a different path.
5. The guy will mimic you
When a guy is interested in a girl, but he is not sure about the girl’s feelings towards him, then most likely he will not approach her because he is afraid of rejection. He will instead start mirroring her. If she is smiling, then he will mimic her smile. If she is sitting with her head on her palm, then he will also do the same. He is actually trying to get a girl's attention and in this way, he is letting the girl know that he is interested in her. Otherwise, why would he take the time to randomly mirror someone on purpose! Think about it girl.
Body language signs of guys
Most guys want to make the first move, but sometimes they are so scared of rejection that they become conflicted about whether they should make the first move or not. It is not like they are not interested or don’t want to commit; they just want to make sure that when they make the first move they'll get a positive response. So, they prefer sending out signs through body language to make their chosen girl aware of their feelings. If you are also interested in the guy, then you should also understand his body language signs and give him the confidence to make the first move. In case you are not sure that you'rere reading the guy's body language correctly, here are 5 more body language signs to help you out.
6. The guy will feel jealous
This is a surefire trick to play on the guy you feel is interested in you. You can start talking about a guy whom you have met and started liking. He will just frown or stop talking. He might also try to make you feel jealous by talking about other girls. If the guy is doing any of these things, then you can be sure about his feelings for you. This is a tried and tested formula and has worked for many who wanted to know if a guy likes them. It will surely work for you as well.
7. Hyperactive when you are around
You must have noticed by now that whenever you are around this particular guy he starts exaggerating his gestures, either moving his hands too much while talking or he is cracking all sorts of silly jokes. If he is doing that, then girl, he surely likes you a lot. If he wasn’t interested in you, then he wouldn’t have bothered to grab your attention.
8. His friends would know
If he is interested in you, he definitely would have shared this piece of information with his friends. You can easily figure out whether his friends know something about you or not. When you are around, have you seen his friends acting strangely? They may be smiling at you and then looking at him, or nudging him then making weird facial expressions in your presence. It might look strange, but if you see something happening like this then it is because he has shared his feelings for you with them and they are teasing him about it.
9. Giving his best shot
Whenever he sees you, if he is sucking his tummy in, his chest is sticking out, and he is standing tall, then it is because he likes you and wants to be at his best in front of you. He will only do that when he is truly interested in a girl.
10. The guy never turns away
When a guy likes you, he will focus on you completely and will never turn his back on you when you are around. The only time he'll turn his back on you is when he'll have to reluctantly leaving.
An interested guy will give signs
It's true that if a guy is actually interested in a girl, then he will start sending out signs secretly and, at times, even open up to the girl. If the girl starts reciprocating his feelings, then he'll feel more confident to approach the girl. Body language signs are the safest way to make a girl understand the feelings of a guy. Some signs can be sent knowingly and some signs are given out by the guys unconsciously. For example, if a guy likes the girl he is speaking to, then his pupils will dilate significantly. It happens unknowingly but naturally. If the girl can understand the message through his eyes are sending, then the job of the guy becomes much easier. But, at times, it is fun to explore the body language of the guy who is interested in you. It is like teasing them and making them work hard to get your attention while you enjoy all the attention he is showering on you. You can either make the first move and let the guy know that you have also fallen for him, or you can play the game of hide and seek for some time.
11. The guy will show interest on his face
It is natural to produce extra saliva when you are with someone whom you are attracted to. So, if your guy is licking his lip (obviously in a cute manner) or biting his lip around you, then you can take it as a good sign that he likes you.
12. Taking notice of your features
Sometimes it can be quite awkward to look into someone's eyes constantly, so if the guy is interested in you then he will focus on your face in general while conversing. He will be hooked onto your features while talking to you.
13. Leaning forward – a sign of an interested guy
Even when he can hear you perfectly well in a quiet place, he will still prefer leaning toward you while you are speaking, if he is at all interested in you. Take a note of this sign when you speak to some guy to know whether he is interested in you!
14. Physical contact is a definite sign
When a guy is interested in someone and has been sending out body language signs for a long time now, he can then move on to the next stage of signs. He will start making light physical contact while talking to you. He might tuck your hair behind your ears or touch your knees slightly while sitting next to you. If he is wearing a cute smile while doing this, then he is giving out definite signs of his interest. You can take it from there.
15. Signs of an interested guy - his hair
Playing with one's hair is a sign that is generally associated with girls, but it can be a guy thing too. If a guy is interested in someone, then he will either run his hand through his hair to smoothen it or just mess it up to look cool.
Other signs that show a guy is interested
It is not that easy to suppress your thoughts, more so when you are interested in someone. Sometimes, the guy would love to hold the girl he likes in his arms but is not able to do so because he hasn’t confessed his feelings yet. So, what he does is that he starts brushing his fingers against yours or asking you to give him a high five even when it is not required. He might hold your hand in the guise of a handshake and won’t let go of it unless you ask him to do so. All these signs are a clear indicator that he likes you a lot, but at the same time, he is afraid to share his feelings with you. If you are secretly enjoying his jealous face when you are talking to some other guy, or you just like watching his body language towards you, it's time to step it up. You need to also give out signs to make him understand that you are equally interested in him.

19. Not making eye contact

20. Rowdy nature takes a back seat
