It’s hard to know if someone is flirting with you. Studies actually show that humans are bad at spotting flirting signals, often confusing them for a friendly conversation. How many times have you had a conversation with a guy and wondered if he was just being nice or if he’s actually into you? Well science is going to help us today friends! Here are 9 scientific ways for how to tell if a guy likes you.
HOW TO TELL IF A GUY LIKES YOU – EXPLAINED BY SCIENCE
#1 – HE MAKES EXCUSES TO TALK TO YOU
The only way that flirting can take place is during a converation. So in order for a guy to start showing you how much he’s into you, he has to get you into a conversation first. He will go out of his way to do this. ‘Aint nobody got time for luck when you’re into a lovely and sexy lady. He will find a way to make it happen.
So if he comes over to your desk to ask mundane questions, he’s probably super into you! This is even more true if he goes out of his way to keep the conversation flowing. It means that he’s enjoying your company and wants to establish a connection.
#2 – HE SMILES AT YOU
One of the easiest ways for how to tell if a guy likes you is if he’s smiling. Smiling is a go-to act of flirting and is a great way to make connections with people.

If you’re into him as well, be sure to let him know by smiling back and laughing at his jokes!
