When you want to figure out if a guy is into you and has a crush on you, it’s not uncommon to try and decode both his words and actions in order to figure out his true feelings about you. And while it may seem challenging at first to try and understand his real intentions, the good news is that there are seven essential signs that can help you determine if he has a crush on you.

1. He Always Finds a Reason to Talk to You

When a guy has a crush on you, he’ll seek out as many opportunities as he can to be able to talk to you. For example, he may ask you for restaurant recommendations, strike up a conversation about what you did over the weekend, or ask you questions about your interests all in the hopes of getting some face-to-face time with you. In addition, by consistently looking for chances to talk to you, he’s also hoping to learn more about you and your likes and dislikes.

2. He Laughs at Everything You Say

Have you noticed that this guy tends to burst out laughing every time you say something funny? When a guy has a crush on you, he often becomes your best audience. He not only wants to show you that he gets your humor and appreciates how fun and interesting you are, but he also wants you to associate him with laughter and smiles. Since people are often drawn to those who emit positivity rather than negativity, he’s hoping that the upbeat vibes he’s putting out there are bringing you closer to him.

3. He Can't Help But Look at You

If you’re trying to figure out if a guy likes you, you should try to pay attention to how much he looks at you. Do you find that you often lock eyes with each other? Does he tend to look at you a little longer than he looks at others around him? Have you ever caught him staring at you? If a guy has a crush on you, he’ll tend to make eye contact with you and look at you a bit longer, even across a crowded room. Since he finds you so captivating, he simply can't help but want to look at you when you're around one another. 

4. He Flirts With You Non-Stop

Flirt alert! When a guy has a crush on you, he’ll often turn the flirting levels up a notch so that there's no mistake that he's into you. For instance, he may playfully tease you, show off his wit and charm, and even find moments to touch you gently, such as on the arm or the back. If he’s really into you, he’s going to do everything he can to win you over with his flirting skills so that you see him as more than just a friend. When the two of you are joking around and goofing off, he's definitely turning on his flirting skills.

5. He Compliments You

When a guy has feelings for you, he’s going to let you know how awesome he thinks you are. He’ll always look for ways to give you a compliment, and typically these compliments will move past the superficial. For instance, while he may compliment you on how nice you look on a certain day and how pretty your hair looks, he’ll also compliment you on how easy you are to talk to, how smart you are, and how funny you are. While he's certainly into you, he hopes that these compliments will let you know that he's attracted to you on multiple levels.

6. He Always Wants to Hang Out With You

Another tell-tale sign that a guy has a crush on you is that he’ll create opportunities to spend more time with you, especially time that’s just the two of you. For example, you may notice that he plans to leave the room at the precise moment when you're leaving so that you can walk together. He'll also go out of his way to see you and spend time with you even if it’s a bit inconvenient for him. This guy will also always volunteer to help you in any capacity that you need. When being with you is his top priority, this is often a clear sign that he has a crush on you. 

7. He Remembers Details About You

When a guy has a crush on you, he'll often remember key details about you that you happened to mention. For instance, you may have said in passing that you really don't like mayonnaise or tomatoes, and he'll make a point to remember this about you from that day forward. Since he truly wants to get to know you while also letting you know how important you are to him, remembering specific details about you, big or small, is a sign that he values you and the person you are.
