Updated July 20, 2017

Dating can be complex, especially if you are not clear if your potential partner is interested in you. Oftentimes men show feelings in a different way than woman and it can be hard for woman to make out those feelings. The easy way to find out would be to just ask him how he feels, but not everyone is that forward. The next best thing would be to check for special signs that will hint to you that the person is interested in you.

Body Language

Body language can tell a lot about a person without saying a word. When the two of you are together on a date, pay attention to how he reacts when speaking to you or listening to you. For example, if he moves in close to you while speaking to you then he is definitely into you. This shows he is interested in you knowing more about him and is interested in what you have to say as well. If he seems distracted while you are engaged in a conversation and cannot focus, then that may be a sign that he is not interested in you. If you see him checking his attire to make sure he looks good then he want so impress you and is making sure that you like what you see.

Responses to Messages

When a man is interested in you, he is interested in what you have to say and cannot wait to hear more from you. If you are sending flirty text messages or leaving sweet voice mails then you will expect the same from him. If he is interested then his responses will collaborate with you responses. For example if you send a message such as, " I had a great time tonight, can't wait to do it again" an appropriate response from him would be "I enjoyed myself too and would love to do it again, how about this weekend?" His response will include planning the next date, since he feels you two hit it off well.


Although it is not advertised often, chivalry still does exist. When a man shows chivalry, you know he is interested in you because he wants to please you. Pay attention to things such as him opening the car door for you or picking up the check. Giving eye contact when you are speaking to him shows interest as well. There are a variety of signs when it comes to chivalry so you must pay attention to the signs that he is sending to you. One of the biggest things with chivalry is that the man makes you feel very comfortable and sometimes goes out of his way to do so.

He Wants To Show You Off

When a man is interested in you, he will want to talk to friends and family about you. He will eventually want to invite you out to events with his friends or family on a regular basis. This is when you know he is interested in you and is hoping that the relationship will turn into something more serious. If there are any special milestones in his life, such as a graduation or job promotion, he will want you there to celebrate the milestone. These are signs that he is looking forward to spending much more time with you.
