21 Undeniable Signs That He Likes You
If you are a little puzzled as to if his hints actually mean something or not, you can stop worrying. He will definitely show signs he really likes you and they are hard to miss. Here are such 21 undeniable signs that he likes you and wants you in his life!

2. He touches you adoringly
One of the undeniable signs that he likes you is if he often caresses you or touches you in an adoring manner. He may stroke your back lightly, put his arms around your waist often or move your hair out of your face.
These touches do not necessarily have to be sexual. They can be light, soft and will often not mean anything other than the fact that he is purely smitten by you.
3. He asks the right questions
Usually, on initial dates, people spend a lot of time just understanding the other person and their history. If a guy is putting genuine efforts into asking you important questions, he may like you very much.
If he goes beyond the basic getting-to-know-you questions, this is one of the big signs. Questions like ‘What is the craziest thing you have done?’ or ‘What’s your favorite movie?’ are simple and not too serious.
‘What is one moment you would love to get back if you could?’ or ‘What makes you wake up in the morning?’ are questions people ask when they want to get to know someone on a much deeper level.
4. He pays attention to your social media
Social media stalking is a very acceptable practice these days. We all do it very often and it has now become a subtle sign of showing interest in another person. If he often views your stories and replies to them consistently, these are signs he wants to approach you. Online flirting consists of social media lurking.
If he comments on your older pictures or brings up your social media activities in his conversations – he is clearly spending a lot of his time scrolling your profile. And that is one of the obvious signs he likes you.
5. He sends ‘Good Morning’ texts
Sending morning greetings to people randomly can be a tedious affair. A man will only do so with a woman that he truly likes and wants. If he makes the effort to wish you a good day or ask how your morning has been going, he might be a keeper!

10. He gets jealous when you mention other guys
If you mention other dates, potential boyfriends or past flames to this guy, he may lose the spark in his face and develop a sulking attitude.He does not do this intentionally to bother or make you feel bad. It is just his reflex because of how strongly he feels for you.
11. He gives you thoughtful gifts
On birthdays, Christmas or any other special occasion – if a guy brings a thoughtful gift for you, there is a good chance he likes you! If the gift is not a simple or formal one, it indicates that he took out the time to think about your choices and wants.
For example, you drink tea every day and he buys you a cute teapot in your favorite color. This shows that he is attentive toward your likes and dislikes. Not just that, he has thoughtfully used that information to get you something that you would appreciate.
If this isn’t one of the obvious signs he likes you, what would be!
