Everyone wants to know if a shy guy likes you, but you don’t want to come right out and ask him. This can be so confusing, especially when you consider he’s probably not going to do anything to show his feelings. No need to worry. There are certain things he does that only a girl who understands these signs will notice.
1. He Stares At You A LOT!
If you feel like a guy is looking at you often, there is a good chance that he has feelings for you. Even if he is shy, he might make it a point to stare at you when you’re not looking and then look away quickly as soon as you turn towards him.
2. His Friends Know About You.
If you’ve met some of the guy’s friends, but he hasn’t told them about you yet, it’s likely that he either doesn’t like you all that much or he is really, really shy (or both). On the other hand, if the guy has talked about you to his friends (or even better, introduced you to his friends)… then there’s a good chance that he likes you and is interested in taking things to the next level.
3.He asks questions about things that he knows interest you.
If he asks you questions about your personal life or what interests you, it means that he likes being around you and wants to talk to you as much as possible. When someone likes someone else, they tend to ask lots of questions about that person’s life and try to find out things that the other person is interested in so they can talk about these things with them later on.
4.He smiles and looks down.
When a guy likes a girl, they tend to smile more than usual and laugh even at the worst jokes! If a man feels nervous around the girl they are interested in, they may also start smiling and laughing more than usual or talk really fast.
5. He Looks Away When You Catch Him Looking
This is a sign that he’s trying to be subtle about it. He doesn’t want to make it obvious that he wants you to know that he likes you, but if you catch him looking at you, even if he turns away quickly, it’s a sign that he wants you to know that he likes you. He might not say it directly, but his body language will say it all.
6. He Remembers Everything About You
If you notice that the guy you’re crushing on remembers everything you ever say to him, then he’s definitely interested! This means that he listens to you and takes an interest in what you have to say.
7.He’s Very Polite and Courteous
It’s no secret that shy guys aren’t big on small talk. But if he always seems to be interested in your day and how it went, then don’t doubt that he likes you. He wants to show interest in your life because he enjoys spending time with you.
8. If the shy guy seems eager to see what’s going on in your life,
He may not come right out and ask questions about your life, but by simply asking how work is going or how school is going shows that he wants to know more about your everyday life.
9. He might find random excuses to touch you.
A shy guy might also try and sit or stand near you just so he can get close and be around you. If he finds an excuse to touch your arm or shoulder, it might be because he likes the way it feels!
10.He is too protective for you
When it comes to feeling protective of their girlfriend, shy guys tend to be over the top. If a shy guy likes you, he will not want anyone else to hurt you in any way. He will often stand up for you even in situations where he is not called upon to do so. He might get into fights over you, even if it means getting himself hurt.
11. He gives compliments
This may seem super obvious, but sometimes the simplest signs are the most obvious ones we miss. If a shy guy goes out of his way to compliment you, he is trying to tell you something. Even if it’s something small like pointing out how nice your hair looks today, it means he has taken note of something about you and wants to let you know. Pay attention!
12. He tries to get your attention
A shy guy who likes you will try anything to make sure you know he’s around. He might stand next to you in line at the coffee shop and fumble over his order because he’s so nervous, or he might drop by your office on a Saturday. Even if he doesn’t talk to you at all, it’s still a sign that he thinks about you a lot.
13. He shares secrets with you.
One of the best ways to tell if a guy likes you is to pay attention to how he treats other girls. A shy guy might not be so obvious when they like someone, but they will tend to avoid eye contact with girls they like, and only talk to them when absolutely necessary. If he talks to other girls and barely looks at them, but goes out of his way to make eye contact with you and talk to you, it’s a pretty good sign he likes you.
14.He leans in toward you.
He may even close the distance between you two so there’s no space left between your bodies. This is his way of subconsciously telling you he really likes being around you, and he wants to get closer to you both physically and emotionally.
Many shy guys really do like being shyer than usual around the person they like. Shyness can be a form of self-protection, after all, and the shy guy is really telling you that he likes you and wants to keep his options open in case it doesn’t work out. Look for the signs, and try to be patient—and we promise it’ll be worth it!
