Do you have a male friend who is always the one to reach out during tough times, pays extra attention to your social media posts, and compliments you often?
If you answered yes, there is a chance he might be harboring feelings for you that venture outside the boundaries of the friendzone.
So, wanna know how to tell if your guy friend is secretly in love with you? Be aware of these 15 telltale signs the next time you hang out with him.
1. He Pays Attention To What You’re Talking About.
When a guy likes you, he will likely be interested in what you have to say. He will listen attentively and ask follow-up questions.
Sure, friends listen to each other too, but he listens extra much and always makes you feel:
- Validated in your opinions and feelings
- Like you’re right and “not in the wrong”
- Like he’s always going to be on your side
- Like he wants to hear more about your opinions, thoughts and feelings
That’s a positive sign! In a nutshell, he wants to get to know you even better, and he wants you to feel comfortable talking to him.
He wants to learn more about you and have a deeper connection with you.

2. He Tries To Impress You.
There’s something that guys cannot help doing when they’re around a girl they like, respect and secretly feel attracted to, and that is try to impress her!
Guys want to feel worthy of your attention if you’re a high value, attractive woman.
He’ll likely be wary about making a bad first impression and will make sure that he looks his best when he’s around you.
When you guys go out, he may be extra careful about what he wears, how he styles his hair, and how he carries himself.
He may even try to actively do things he suspect might impress you, such as:
- Showing off his skills
- Solve a problem you have
- Bring you a gift; or
- Surprise you with something thoughtful
When you notice that your male friend is trying to make a good impression on you, it is a sign that he might have feelings for you.
3. He Finds Excuses To Be Around You.
If your male friend likes you, he will likely want to spend as much time with you as possible.
He’ll make excuses to be alone with you or hang out with you even when other people are around.
If you guys have a lot of mutual friends who hang out a lot, you’ll notice that he’ll be opportunistic about finding one on one time with you.
Whenever there’s an opening to be with you, he’s taking it! Why would a guy do that? Gee, hard to guess!
Obviously because he wants to have one-on-one time with you and be able to get to know you better.
Don’t be surprised at the fact that he may even start spending all of his time with you!
If you like him too, you may want to make the most of his interest in you, and trigger his desire to make you his one and only!

4. He Invites You on Solo-hang outs.
When you guys hang out, does he bring his friends along? Or does he only invite you, with no one else around?
If he only invites you to hang out with him, it could be one of the big signs your male friend has feelings for you.
See: if he is trying to get you alone, he may be trying to create an intimate environment with just the two of you so that he can let you know how he feels.
5. He Gets Jealous When You Talk To Other Guys.
We don’t usually feel jealous about someone unless we care about them and want to keep them in our lives, right?
Well, if you notice that your male friend seems to get a little hostile, stiff or gives off subtle possessive vibes when other guys get too close, then maybe he’s feeling jealous!
So, when you guys are on a date together or are just hanging out with other friends, take note of his behavior when you chat with other guys.
Also observe how he reacts when you talk about other guys. If he seems a little agitated or offish, it’s a sign that he’s jealous!
He may also get jealous if you interact with guys on social media or in other forms of communication like texts or phone calls.
This is a very common sign that a guy likes you. If you’re noticing that the green-eyed monster makes a cameo appearance when you talk to other guys, it could be a sign that he has feelings for you.
6. He Constantly Does Nice Things For You.
Do you have a particular guy friend who’s forever doing something nice for you, like bringing you a gift, fulfilling your request, or going out of his way for you?
If you’ve noticed that he’s doing all these nice things for you, especially without you even asking, it’s a huge sign your male friend might have feelings for you.
Typically when a man is crushing on you, he’ll bend over backward to show how much he cares about you and will make a point of showing you how special you are.
And if this male friend isn’t your typical nice guy who tries to please people, it makes this type of behavior even more poignant!
7. He Becomes Overly Protective Of You.
Call it instinct or just a macho trait, guys have an innate need to protect their loved ones.
With that said:
When a guy likes you, he may feel the need to protect you from harm. This is because if a guy has gotten to the point of actually liking you, then he clearly perceives value in you and you’re probably precious to him.
If you ever confide in him about a problem at work, with a friend, or with a family member, he may want to stand up for you and protect you from what’s bothering you.
He may also want to step in and put a stop to people who are making you feel uncomfortable.
If your male friend becomes overly protective of you, this is one of the signs your male friend has feelings for you.
Take note: guys will almost never feel protective over a woman whom they see as low value. Guys will always give a low value woman crumbs. There Are 7 Common Signs That A Woman is Perceived as Low Value to All Men. Do You Know What They Are & How to Avoid Them Like the Plague?

Because men and women perceive value very differently and you don’t want to be making mistakes that would cause quality men to dismiss, abandon or alienate you.)
8. He Constantly Talks About How Great You Are.
Now, not all guys are very good at complimenting (it just doesn’t come naturally to many guys), but if a guy does seem to take note of your good qualities and verbalise his appreciation, that’s one of the possible signs your male friend has feelings for you.
He may tell you how awesome you are at your job or how “smart and funny” you are. He may also point out how many people like you, how compassionate you are or how you get the attention of a lot of guys.
If you notice that your male friend consistently shows appreciation for you or compliments you, it’s a good sign that he might have feelings for you.
However: just because a guy doesn’t compliment you, doesn’t always mean he doesn’t like you or care for you, because as I mentioned, complimenting doesn’t come naturally to a lot of guys.
9. He Puts Your Needs First.
There’s no bigger sign he has feelings for you than when he actively invests in you!
If he’s always putting your needs first, it’s a very telling sign your male friend might have feelings for you because he’s willing to make sacrifices to ensure you are well taken care of and happy.
For example, he might have made arrangements to hang with the boys but you call him because you need help with your latest DIY project.
If he drops everything to help you out, it’s a very telling sign he might have feelings for you because it’s the kind of thing guys do when they like a girl.

10. He Doesn’t Hold Back When He Talks To You.
There is nothing more refreshing than complete honesty!
If your male friend likes you, he won’t hold back when talking to you. He may tell you exactly what he thinks, or he may reassure you that what you’re doing is ok and let you know that he agrees with you.
He won’t sugarcoat things and will be honest with you, even when it hurts.
It could be a sign that he has feelings for you if he is always straight talkin’ to you and doesn’t have any problem telling you how he feels.
Because he wants to offer you his trust, or because you’ve already earned his trust (so he wants to deepen his relationship with you).
11. He Admires Your Femininity
When a guy appreciates your femininity, softness and vulnerability, that’s a sure sign that his appreciation for you is growing.
If he says specifically that he loves how feminine you are, that’s a good sign that he is feeling attracted to you (especially if he’s a super masculine guy, as the more masculine a man is, the more he sees value in a very feminine woman).

12. He Puts You On A Pedestal.
If your guy friend is completely infatuated with you, he will have a hard time not putting you on a pedestal.
He won’t hesitate to comment on what you’re wearing or how you look and will try to make you feel seen and appreciated.
He may even tell others that he has a crush on you and that he can’t live without you.
If he expresses admiration for qualities within you that he thinks he lacks, then there’s a good chance that he values you and is starting to like you.
13. He Trusts You With His Secrets and Talks to You About Personal Things.
Isn’t it almost always a positive sign that someone feels fondly towards you if they share their secrets with you?
I mean, unless they suffer from oversharing attacks or are a chronic oversharer, for most guys especially, sharing secrets is only something they do with the women they want to make their very own!
So if your male friend likes you, he will trust you with his most personal secrets and will open up to you when talking about uncomfortable or taboo things.
He may also tell you how happy he is that the two of you are friends and how lucky he feels every day when he’s around you.
If your male friend feels comfortable enough to open up to you, it could be a sign that he likes you.
14. He Won’t Hesitate to Shout You Lunch Or A Coffee
If your male friend likes you, he will not hesitate to spend his hard earned money on you.
But some guys can be generous with their cash even with friends, so how could you really tell the difference between platonic generosity and romantic generosity?
You tell the difference by observing and feeling his intent. So if his intent is to develop something romantic with you, then you’ll notice the following:
- He goes out of his way to get you a coffee (and doesn’t expect you to pay him back)
- He doesn’t want you to treat him to lunch or dinner and always pays for your share without you asking
- He purchases special gifts for your birthday and christmas
- And the really telling sign of romantic interest is if he anticipates your thirst or hunger ahead of time and purchases something for you before you even try to get it for yourself!
15. He Asks For Your Advice.
If your male friend likes you, he will want to ask for your advice before making an important decision or doing something big.
He may even over-analyze a situation before telling you what he’s thinking of doing because he wants to be sure that his idea is the right one.
If your male friend asks you for advice, it’s a very telling sign that he has feelings for you because that means he’s taking your feelings and opinion into account.
And if he’s taking your feelings into account, that means that you hold a special place in his life.
Also, guys don’t usually ask girls they don’t like for their opinion and thoughts.
16. He Touches You More Often.
When a guy likes you, he’ll likely want to be as physically close to you as possible and touch you in a non-sexual way.
He’ll want to hold your hand, lean on your shoulder, or put his arm around you in a non-sexual way.
He may even try to make physical contact with you that is not typical of how two friends normally interact—for example, he may hug or kiss you on the cheek.
Ain’t that sweet?
When you notice that your male friend touches you a lot, it could be a sign that he likes you.
I hope after reading these signs, you are knowledgeable about how to spot a guy’s hidden fondness and fascination for you.
Keep in mind that if a guy likes you, he will do whatever he can to ensure you’re happy and that your time is not wasted with him.
If a guy has feelings for you, he will go out of his way to make sure that you are happy, because when a man truly likes a woman, he wants nothing more than to see her happy.
One final thing: it’s always good to look for the signs your male friend has feelings for you, but don’t forget to check in with your gut.
Also remember that if a guy really likes you, you’ll feel it in his energy. Sometimes you just know.
Humans have intelligent and subtle social cues as well as body language cues that they give off, so if you allow yourself to be sensitive enough, you’ll notice the cues he’s giving you.
