20 Signs for How to Know If Someone Likes You

When you like someone, you want to know if that someone likes you. The most obvious question that comes into your mind must be ‘Does he or she like me?’.


How do you tell if someone likes you, it’s a hard question!

Some people confirm their feelings for each other by saying ‘I love you’ but it’s best to ensure the other person feels the same way before jumping to conclusions.

Today, Luxy will share 20 signs to help you know if someone likes you.


20 Signs to Know Someone Likes You

1. Do they always agree with your opinion?

There is a ‘Similarity Principle’ when we meet new friends. That means people prefer to get along with others who share the same interests and hobbies. If people agree with your point of view, you get a sense of satisfaction.

If a guy or girl likes you, they will usually agree with your point of view. Even if they don’t, they’ll say that your opinion is also very reasonable. However, if he or she often disagrees with your idea, they may not fancy you.

2. Do they want to know more about you?

The mere-exposure effect is a psychological phenomenon by which people tend to develop a preference for things merely because they are familiar with them.

One interesting thing is that, even if you don’t like something at first, you have a strong possibility to change your mind when you know more about it.

3. Do they respond to your messages?

If your dream love does not reply to your messages for a long period of time, they may not be interested in you. They might be busy, but they could also be doing this on purpose.

They may be too stubborn to reply and if they do, they will feel in conflict and anxiety. As a result, they’ll tell you they are ‘busy’ or ‘have something to do’ to reduce their anxiety.

4. Do they eat a lot?

Experiments show that girls will eat less when eating with their dream love (This is not applicable to boys).

So, if you are lucky enough to dine with your goddess, you can pay attention to her appetite. If she is eating an excessive amount during the meal, she may not have that special feeling for you.

5. Physical contact

If they have not actively refused any physical interaction and occasionally do, make contact. Then they likely feel comfortable around you and have a good impression on you.

6. Gifts will get them thinking

If they are interested in you, they’ll always look at you. There is a good way to help you test: first look at their faces for four seconds, then look away and look back again. Do they keep eye contact with you? It proves they are interested in you.

Maybe they often look at your mouth when you are together, then they are 100% attracted to you. When you are talking, their eyes may remain in contact looking at you for two or three seconds. This indicates they might be interested in you. However, if you notice them actively looking away to stop the eye contact, they may not be interested in you.

11. Observe whether their attitude to others is different from you

If they really like you, their attitude to you must be different from others. Some boys will even flirt with other girls to attract their dream girl’s attention. They want to know your reaction to see if you like them. (Yes, I know this sounds weird.)

Fortunately, if you check carefully, you can know if he is doing this intentionally. If he just wants to attract your attention, he will secretly observe your performance when flirting with other girls. You can pretend to go to the bathroom, if he stops when you leave, he is into you but not others. Or you can pretend to leave, let your friends help you find out.

12. Do they like the thing you like?

For example, if you tell them your favorite music, which they never heard before, they’ll let you recommend some related bands or songs. Or they will find the bands concert and ask you to see the show together.

If you mentioned your favorite TV show, they’ll see it as well and tell you they like the show and discuss the details in the show with you. These details prove they like you.

13. If they are nervous

Are they normal when they are laughing? Are they sweating or taking deep breath to calm down? Or looking away when they notice you are looking at them? These are the signs to know if a guy or girl likes you.

14. Take a look at their friends

If their friends know they like you, they might create a joke when you are around. So, have a look at their friends, see if they give a mysterious look.

15. Do they imitate your actions?

Imitating is a sign to see if a person likes you. If you find that they always mimic your movements, then it is likely that they like you.

You can also try to imitate their movements. For example, when they touch their hair, you can also touch your hair. These all implies that ‘I also like you’.

16. Are they willing to follow you?
