How To Tell A Guy You Like Him

How To Tell A Guy You Like Him

Mary Daniels discusses how to let a guy know you like him, and how to set up situations to get to know him on a one-to-one basis.

Today, I'm going to talk about how to tell a guy you like him. Now, I know a lot of people say that it can be a lot harder with guys, I don't want to sort of stereotype you, but girls can be quite emotional sometimes when they like someone. With guys, they can like someone but not necessarily give any signals or strong signals.

So, if you want to tell a guy that you actually like him, I think, first of all, what you want to do is check that he's single, you know, he's not in any sort of committed relationship where you'll end up telling him that you like him or showing him that you like him, and it's immediately doomed from the beginning. So, once you know, and you've found out that he is single, then there are probably two or three ways that you can actually tell the guy that you like him or are interested in him. I think, first of all, you need to make sure that you're in a space, socially, when he's relaxed, where you can get to know him.

If you pay a guy a lot of attention, they do start to notice you a lot more and they do pay more attention to you when you're either in their space or you're doing something socially. Don't go overboard and make sure it's authentic, but if you generally like the guy and you are interested in him, then actually give him that one-to-one attention. Don't be shy in terms of offering up compliments.

You can still do it in a way where you're not exposing yourself and you're not vulnerable, but it creates a lovely atmosphere. Look at ways where you can do things with him, maybe not necessarily in his social circle, so on a one-to-one basis. It doesn't have to be a date, you don't have to go that far.

If you just want to let him know that you're interested, you can suggest something, so find out his interests. If he says to you he really wants to see a film that he hasn't gone to see or he's planning to go somewhere, then just say "Oh, you know, I'm into that. Do you want to do it together? Or why don't we meet?" or whatever it is, do something that gives you that one-to-one time.

You can have a chat with his friends, although guys tend to be slightly different to girls, where girls will immediately feed their information back. With some guys, they might not necessarily pick up first-time that you are interested. I think the key thing is to be persistent.

Don't do too many sorts of mixed messages; don't get into the whole game playing. I think you really want to be straight-forward and open. That is the key thing.

If you go down a whole game-playing route, it could backfire. So, I think, try and spend as much time with them as possible. Try to either talk to them on a one-to-one basis, whether it's by Facebook which might be a safer way to start off with or some form of online sort of medium, and then look at doing something where you're physically hanging out on a one-to-one basis, just so you get to know each other better.

Throw some flirting in. Guys like flirting; compliments and flirting. There are lots of subtle things you can do that will actually let a guy know that you're interested in them.

So, keep going! Pick up on all the signals, make sure you pay attention to the feedback and if you do all of the above, then there's no reason why the guy won't know that you're interested in him.
