There are very few things in the world that are as complicated or as complex as having to figure out why men act the way that they do. For a lot of ladies, it can be incredibly frustrating having to understand why a man acts a certain way. A lot of this can stem from the fact that men just don’t like to talk about their feelings or their emotions much. Men tend to be very quiet, closed off, and guarded when it comes to their emotions and so women are usually left to just give their best guesses as to how men feel about them.
This can prove to be especially difficult whenever a woman is trying to figure out if a man is flirting with her or not. You’ve been there before. You think that some guy has been expressing some kind of interest in you, and you want to see where things will take you. But you’re not entirely sure. You can’t say for certain if he really is interested in you and you don’t want to make a fool of yourself by wrongly assuming so. And so you risk ending up missing out on a chance to have a relationship with this guy just because you couldn’t tell if his intentions were real or not.
If only you could read minds, right? That would make everything so much easier. But unfortunately, you are unlikely to ever develop supernatural powers that would allow you to peer into the thoughts of the men in your life. And it is just as unlikely that men will ever generally just muster up the courage to express how they’re feeling on the inside instead of leading their women on wild goose chases. But there is a way for you to be able to gauge where a man stands in respect to you.
So as long as you stay vigilant and you keep an eye out for some of these signs, you will get a fairly good idea of whether a man really likes you or not. He may even already be flirting with you without you realizing it. To enlighten you further, here are 7 ways that guys flirt with you and the hidden meanings behind these actions:
1. He tells you that he likes you.
First off, let’s get the obvious out of the way. There are some men who are just plain exemptions to the rule. They are the outliers. These are the men who are confident enough to openly admit their intentions. They are the ones who aren’t afraid to come up to you and ask if you’re interested in dating them.
2. He engages in casual small talk with heavy implications.
For some of the shier and more conservative men, they will take a less evasive and more passive approach to flirting with you. They will want to engage in casual small talk just to see where you stand on certain lighthearted topics. He will also want to get a feel of how you are whenever you’re together just to get a better read on you.
3. He will start bringing up more intimate topics or jokes with you.
Some men will flirt with you by deliberately trying to establish a connection with you. They can do this by immediately conjuring an inside joke or a topic of endearment that is exclusive only to the both of you.
4. He always makes the effort to start a conversation.
A man would not want to talk to you if he weren’t interested in getting something out of you. You just have to be smart enough to know what that something is. But for the most part, a man will only ever try to start a conversation with you if he wants to get closer to you.
5. He does something out of the ordinary just to get your attention.
A lot of men will also resort to taking a passive-aggressive approach to flirting with you. They won’t come right out and say that they like you, but that won’t stop them from being aggressive with their approach. They will do crazy things or stunts just to be able to get you to notice them.
6. He gets touchy with you.
If a man starts getting physically intimate with you, then you can probably tell right off the bat that he’s interested. He’s trying to gauge if you’re going to respond in the same manner. He wants you and it’s up to you to figure out if he’s going to be worth it.
7. He offers to take you out for a drink.
This is probably the most classic and most overused approach to flirting. They want to be able to take you out in a non-formal setting with the help of some liquid courage to get the ball rolling between the two of you.
