Boys who like you might tease you, not even look at you when you look at him, or stare at you. If you catch a boy looking at you, you might wont to study the look in his eyes or on his fase.

I found out yesterday that a boy that likes me pretty much avoids me around school but talks to me when I'm alone, e.g at my locker. Hope this helps x

Well with me its like he has a special gleam in his eye. you can just tell if you really study his face. you have a moment were there is complete silence and then he says he has to go, and you watch him walk away with a smile on your face.

You can never actually tell with boys, but if you want to take a chance and tell them you like them.

Well, if a guy likes you, he might tease you, he might blush when he's near you, he MIGHT try and talk to you and when your not looking he might stare at you.

When boys like you there are lots of ways they express it:

1. They tease you. If this teasing gets mean thats a bad kind of crush and you need to tell him to stop.

2. They blush and are shy around you.

3. They never stop staring at you.

4. They try to make you laugh.

And lots more. The best way to tell if he likes you is ask...but not directly. All you have to do is do something like smile and flirt with him a lot. You can find 10 awesome ways to do it in the Smart Girl's Guide to Boys from American Girl.

I agree with Josie,some boys are really good at hiding their feeling about you or anyone else.(Trust me),but anyways in this case you could get someone else to ask him for you, ask him yourself, or keep looking for crushing signs. Good Luck! :)

I found out a guy liked me recently. He always teased me. Also whenever I looked up he was staring at me and he looked away quickly. Also if you look in his eyes there is sometimes a gleam in it. Good luck!

Anonymous Maddy said...

there are diffrent kinds of huys so there are diffrent ways they show they like you. well the normal way a guy shows he likes you is he pretends that your just another girl(boys are complicated but you'll catch on) another way a guy shows he likes you is by acting shy around you and not being himself when he is around you like blushing and the worst of all the teasing! oh that is the worst but one way to find out is if he is shy around you say hi and maybe he will talk and if he acts like your just another girl he might not like you so thats the most confusing and if he teases you there is nothing you can really do. but you can never really tell when a guy likes you, you just need to do your noormal stuff and maybe h will telll you he likes you. you never know, guys are SO complicated hope i helped.

This is what happened with me. A boy who has NOT gone through puberty (you usually can't tell) might be mean to you, or, in my case, when you walk by, start hurriedly staring at something or immediatly stop talking. If he has, he might start flirting with you. Ask him, when it's just you and him, none of yours or his friends, if he likes you. Break the news carefully, if you don't like him, but if you do, tell him!

At school there was this boy I liked and he would ignore me and act like enemies at school but after school he was really nice and all.
And I wanted to make it look like he liked me so that he would be embarressed.
It worked and he ditched me at the end of the year and guess what.....
He's not coming back next year!!!
So hope that helps

First, he's shy he avoids talking to you or your friends
Second If he's immature he's mean and teases you
Third When you walk by and his friends start teasing him and pointing at you
He definetly likes you!

this questions a toughie. BUT i might b able 2 help a bit... first off, DON'T do any of those online quiz thingies (most of them aren't accurate) If you're almost dying 2 no, u can ask ur friends 2 ask him who he likes <3 some ppl say he usually likes u if he sits in front of or next 2 u, but if u have assigned seats in school it's hard 2 tell cuz my crush sat in front of me in 1 class but his last name starts with RA and mine starts with RI & we were in alphabetical order, so...also, if he's comfortable with girls your age (mab he has a twin sister or a sister 1 or 2 years older or younger than u), it mite b harder 2 tell if he likes u or not but if he does he might do some of the following things:
start avoiding you for multipule weeks, blushes when he's around u, or is always looking for a chance to talk/ b wit u. Hope i helped u out a bit :) <3

Here's how to know if he likes you:
1. He looks at you a lot, then pretends he wasn't and looks away real quick.
2. Avoids you(this doesn't count if he's mad at you). He might not want you to see his lovey softness.
3. The most for sure sign is to tell him you like him,then read his expressions and body language.

I have never had an actual bf, but I do have expirience. Only tell him you like him if you're positively SURE he likes you. Cuz if he doesn't, it might surely feel like you're a big loser. Trust me, I may only be a sixth grader, but even in kindergarten I had boy problems. I guess I was just born unlucky.

hey if he likes u he will eventually say it unless the r really good at keeping things bottling up but here is a sure thing way to get him to answer u say hey (watever his name may be)somebody told me that u like me / (whichever one u prefer )theres a rumor going around that u like me a can be completely and totally trust me not to tell anyone about this whole conversation if u answer honestly works like a charm unless they r really stuborn but i highly doubt that they wont jump at opportunity to tell there love that they love them unless they dont like u

At my school you just do two things to let a person know you like them.
- Look at them and you look at their
head then their feet. Then
you know their checking you out!
- Raise your eyebrows at them and
smile! Or wink! (: (;

well, boys will...

1. stare at you often and will stare quite a bit when they think you aren't looking
2. make random comments about everything to get you to talk with him
3. try to annoy you by splashing water onto you or something like that
4. look into your eyes when you are talking to him
5. sit VERY close to you, like side by side
6. talk to you alone, like in his room
7. be awfully nice to you

this is spoken from experience, so yeah. oh, and it is fun to play hard to get. pretend that you don't know he's trying to flirt with you and act normal. when you're alone, you can laugh to yourself:)
hope this helped.

well, i see u hav herd a lot of advice, but if a guy likes me, they usally hang out with me or pass notes durring class and try to make me laugh. other times they completely diny that they like u to cover their butts. boys r just like that. they are always afraid of wht their friends will think. it always depends on the boy. some will completely ignore you, then in class stare at you or even hav their best dude ask u or your friends to ask u if ur in to him. fyi boys are always chicken when it comes to telling a girl that they like u. cuz believe it or not boys feel the same as u. nervous, scared, exited, hopeful. and the thought of rejection. i really hope this helped.

There was a new guy at our school last year, and he was in my bffs class. You could sorta tell they liked each other becuz they had the same reactions. how do u act around your crush? It would be about the same way with him if he likes u back.
1 thing u need to know: If an arrogant boy likes you, he will follow u around, get ur cell #, come up with an extremely annoying nickname, etc. EXPERIENCE: There was this dude last year, y know, the under-armour-but-no-muscles kind of thing goin, plays football and stuff. He started talking to me in the hallways and calling me "bek bek" (that name is soooooo idiotic). He wouldn't leave me alone until 1 of my friends dared me 2 bark at him-which I willingly did. There were consequenses, but all my friends say he still likes me...ugh.

If he's a nice boy he might compliment you on how you look or stare at you. But if he is a rude, class clown he might tease you, pull your hair, joke about your looks, stuff like that. There's this one guy in my school whoes really cute and he always stares at me when he's alone. But when all his friends come up, he teases me and pulls my hair. He's cute though, so I might give him a shot.

In my experience, a boy likes you when he either:

a) Tries to spend a lot of time with you

b) tries to make you laugh a lot

c) Ocasionally stares at you


d) When he's having a conversation with your other friend, and your other friend asks you to go away because it's private, he says "No, let ______ stay"

I have a very sweet boyfriend:) so i have some experience with this.

First of all, he'll stare at you, like everyone says :P
He will probably give you lots of compliments haha
Shy boys usually stare, then when you look at them to see if theyre looking they look away.
If you look, or read body language good(I do!! :) ) If he's near you and notices you his shoulders or knees sometimes point at you.
Sometimes they even bump into you in the hallways on purpose just to talk. haha!
Hope this helped!!! Just remember not to do anything you don't want to.

If they stare. If they try to make inside jokes or talk about things that you like even if he doesn't like them. If they start doing "ways to get a girl" tricks like complimenting shoes then walking away, asking questions, etc. If they talk to you or always seem to be around. He'll definitely compliment you or tease you or both. Hope that helped. :)

i'm kinda confused right now. idk if this guy likes me, because i just see him as a friend . but he tends to do things that make me wonder if he has a crush on me.
i have known him for a few years, we werent close but we have some of the same classes. it wasnt until this year when we actually started talking, when we were performing at a competitive music festival. we were on a lunch break and so he asked me if i wanted to check out this undergound tunnel that was under the stage. i said yes and he and i went down, it was reallly creepy and we later got in trouble by a teacher lol. later we were kinda alone watching the view, i was cold and so i was standing at a sunny place. then idk what happened but suddenly he was holding my HAND! we didnt say anything until someone came and he let go of my hand omg. after that incident i tend to find him looking at my direction. now at school when we cross paths he smiles and waves at me saying hi. but lately it seems as though he is trying to avoid me, is he mad at me or something? idk. lol i guess the answer is kinda obvious, i just realized that when i was typing this. i'm hoping to get some more advice then "he totally likes you" ect. Thanks in advance.

Hey cammie :) i kno its been a while since u posted that question but if u wanna hear what i think then here u go. its hard to tell if he likes u or not, but i think he does. This dude thats now one of my bffs invited me to go to the park by our house( he lives right behind me) and hes never really acted like he liked me before. We went to the park and then he dared me to go into the creek so i did and saw a snake and freaked out and started screaming. He ran over to me and afer a while we somehow ended up holding hands. After that day he kinda started avoiding me for a while and it turnes out that he did like me. I really think he likes u, but i could be totally wrong
