How to Know a Guy Is Flirting

Written by contributing writer | 13/05/2017

When a man likes you, rarely does he make it a secret. Flirting is a way of testing the waters to see if you are interested but without fully putting himself out on the chopping block. If you are looking for a man, there are some telltale signs the guy you like is flirting. Coincidentally, these can also be signs the guy you don’t like is in love with you, too.

Watch for eye contact. Normally, this starts out from across a room or a park or wherever you two may happen to be. If he holds your attention for more than a brief, accidental moment, it’s a fair guess that he’s flirting. The telltale sign is if the eye contact is followed by a smile.

Listen for him to pay you compliments. If he compliments your shoes or your hair, that’s a good sign that he's flirting. Those aren’t normal topics that men compliment others on, and this is a signal that he is paying closer attention to you than he does most other people.

See if his attention is focused on you. If he ignores everyone else in the room just for your attention, that’s a sign he is knee-deep in flirting. If his head is on a swivel looking for his friends or checking out other people, chances are he isn’t flirting.

Notice small touches as a sign. If he briefly puts his hand on yours when you tell a funny story or puts a hand on your shoulder when he asks if you want another drink, he is probably flirting with you.

Think about whether he is paying extra attention to you specifically. If he’s asking personal questions and wanting more information about you, he is probably seeking a deeper connection and subsequently flirting.
