Have you been looking for tips and tricks to figure if a guy secretly loves you?
The hardest and the most frustrating part of falling in love is knowing whether the other person loves you or not. One sided love may be beautiful, but it does not mature into a relationship. It is important that you know his feelings, even if he does not openly acknowledge the same. Even the most introvert and shy guys give certain signals to make it obvious that they secretly love you.
22 ways to know if a guy loves you secretly
Many guys are confident and do not hesitate to express their love and take the first step in the relationship by approaching their loved ones. However, there are some guys who are genuinely shy and give out subconscious signs to show their admiration towards their girls. If you have a crush on a shy guy, and are dying to know whether he likes you secretly, then do not become disheartened. We put forward 22 ways to know if a guy loves you secretly. Once you know these, you will be able to know if he feels the same for you or not.
1. You bring a smile to his face
Simply put, you light his face up, even in adverse circumstances!
Even if he is in a bad mood and is avoiding other people, you will be the one who will bring a smile to his face. He will not avoid you and will always greet you with a pleasant smile because he wants you to acknowledge him and perhaps he wants to see your lovely smile as well.
2. The guy makes an effort to talk to you
Whenever he sees you around, he will take the opportunity to talk to you, as it is his way of showing interest in you. This is true for even a shy guy, because if he is making an effort to talk to you, it means he is doing something that is out of his comfort zone just so that he can get to know you better.
3. He keeps his promises
A guy who secretly loves you will make sure he keeps his promises. For example, if he said he will call you, then he will surely call you without fail; or he said he will meet you, then he will make it a point to meet you. By not breaking such promises, he will try to drive home the point to you that he is interested in you. Plus, he will also kep on hinting that he is willing to settle with you.
4. The guy tries to highlight the commonality between the two of you
He always tries to look for things that you both have in common, like say, a hobby or interest and then suggests that you both do it together. Infact, he would know about a lot of things that you love to do! This is just his way of letting you know that you both have compatibility and can think about a future together.
5. He makes excuses to be with you
Does he keep waiting for you when he can actually go home? Has he not eaten his lunch because you have been busy? And then he tells you he wasn’t hungry because he had coffee some time before? Classic signs!
If you notice a guy making dumb excuses just to spend some time with you, then rest assured that he likes you. He wants to hang out with you, because having you by his side is all that matters to him.
6. Flirting with you comes naturally to him
Whenever he flirts with you, it is absolutely effortless. He will say those cute one liners spontaneously, and for some reason, you will laugh them off. It will be light, with just the right sense of humour and tease. This is one of the qualities that women admire in men.
You kind of get the idea that he actually likes you, because he knows how to be playful with you and tease you to get your attention. Nothing seems made up to you and you also tend to respond to his advances naturally.
7. He remembers everything that you say to him

8. The guy is conscious around you
A guy who is your secret lover will always be conscious of his looks and clothes, especially when you are around, because he wants to create a good impression on you. You may see him often in colours that you like, or he may wear his hair the way you said you liked.
Even though he is not openly expressing his feelings, he wants to make sure that you find him attractive and presentable.
