Dear Dish-It: How Do I Know If He Likes Me?

Dear Dish-It,


How do I know if a guy likes me?

Dear Friizzz,


Other people can be really confusing, especially when it comes to crushes and dating. How can you tell if he likes you? Here are a few signs that he is probably into you.


Your Gut Says "Yes!" When you’re young you're still learning how to recognize and trust your intuition (your gut). If you have a feeling that someone's falling for you, even if you can't put your finger on why, he probably is.


He Can't Take His Eyes Off You. He can’t avoid staring at you. He may look into your eyes for a long time or he might glance at you a lot and then look away. Either way, his gaze is constantly headed in your direction. This is one example of body language, which is a great clue about whether someone likes you.


He Wants To Be Near You. If he likes you, he's likely to put himself near you whenever possible. Maybe he finds a way to pass you each afternoon in the hall or he keeps showing up at your soccer games. He might not say anything to you, but he wants to learn more about you. If he's brave, he might even hug you, pat your arm or tickle you. If he does these sorts of things, he's probably into you big time.


He Remembers Things You Say. Two weeks ago you mentioned that you've always wanted to learn how to ride a horse and he brings it up when you're chatting. Maybe he remembers that your favorite color is green or you're scared of spiders. If he's paying attention to little details like this he's probably into you.


He Thinks You're Hilarious. You told the worst joke in class the other day and he was the only to laugh, and he giggles at everything you say. If any of these situations sound like yours there's a good chance that he likes you.


He Smiles Like It's Going Out of Style. When you walk into the room, his face lights up. You raise your hand in class and he grins like it’s Christmas morning. When you talk to each other he's smiling big and paying attention. Yup, he thinks you're the cat’s meow!


He Tells Someone He Likes You. If he tells one of his friends that he likes you or talks to his buddies about you a lot, it’s obvious he thinks you're pretty great.


He Values Your Opinion. He asks what you think about something that's important to him like his overhand pass or his science project. He's probably pretty stuck on you and this is a great opportunity to strike up a conversation -- and maybe more.

    Okay, I've NEVER posted anything about my friends before, so bear with me. I've known that me and my BFF have the same crush since we met in 5th grade. But it always seems that my BFF is closer to him than I'll ever be. They went to 2 school dances together while I'm still in the friend zone with my crush. I pretend to not care but I really do care. I've never been in this situation before and don't know what to do about it. Should I tell my BFF how I feel or wait this whole thing out? Or even forget my crush being my crush and find a new crush? HELP!!!!!   :love :confused

    Maybe that's the only line that needs to be said? You don't have to write down a whole paragraph explaining about how you feel. Sometimes, one word or one sentence can be enough. :p but I don't know. Maybe I have no clue what I'm talking about. :p

    You'll have to remember, your parents love you, with that being said. If you feel like you can talk to them and they're reasonable, go ahead. But if you feel like waiting it's up to you. I think your family will support you, because they do love you. Maybe they'll be upset at first, but they'll come around, everyone does eventually. Is there anyone in your family that knows, like a cousin? Maybe you can ask for their opinion if you should tell your parents, and family. However, it's up to you. and remember, your parents care and love you.

    You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

    I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!
