Hello, my name is Allister, and I’m an overthinker. What that accurately means is that I read way too much into text messages, conversations, or any other forms of interaction at the beginning of the relationship. Everyone does it—however, my overthinking tends to be a bit more predominant than average. Don’t worry gent’s; if you start to head down that unsure road, keep a lookout for these clear cut signs to ease your mind that he indeed does like you.
1Finds Any Excuse To Touch You
Believe me, if he didn’t like you he wouldn’t want to give you the wrong impression like touching your shoulder or grazing his fingers along a tattoo you have—which my guy did to me on our first date. For myself, it was a bit more extreme by picking him up and putting him over my shoulder. Got him laughing.
2Makes Eye Contact
According to Wellesley College and the University of Kansas, men who are romantically interested would stare at that person’s head or chest frequently. If they weren’t they would just stare at legs and feet.
3Compliments You On A Daily
It may be embarrassing to hear how attractive you are—even though you may disagree—take the compliment because it’s how he sees you. Plus, it’s genuine.
4Teases You—A Lot
There’s no malicious intent here; remember back in elementary days when boys would pick on other kids they liked—it’s a visible sign of endearment from him. Means that he’s comfortable enough to poke fun at your expense knowingly he can get away with it. Plus, if you can tease him back, it’s a large sign of chemistry between the two of you.
5Connects On Social Media
Over time, the exchange of social media will happen. He’ll probably dig deep into your past posts and liking the ones that catch his eye or commenting. Yes, you can breathe, he digs you. For myself, my guy decided to make a big announcement posting it on his Instastory saying, “In case you missed the hashtag…#BOYFRIEND.”
6 Brings Up Being Exclusive
The mightiest sign above all. If the guy you’re seeing suggests only wanting to see you—deleting said app if you met on one—then any worries you have should melt away leaving you with utter romantic bliss.
