Does He Have a Crush on Me? 30 Signs a Smitten Guy Just Can’t Hide

You know this guy, and he seems to hang around a lot. Do you find yourself wondering, “does he have a crush on me?” Here’s what you need to know.

Does He Have a Crush on Me

You’d think that guys would be the type of people who are easy to read *and easy to tell if they like you*, but they’re pretty much the exact opposite! Guys don’t often like to show their emotions, and that can make things VERY difficult when you’re trying to figure out how they feel about you. So, you like a guy, catch him looking at you, and you are probably wondering, does he have a crush on me?

Not knowing whether or not a guy has a crush on you can even hurt your chances at a relationship if you’re into him, too.

Both of you may just crush on each other for a long time, always too nervous to ask the other how they feel, and then miss out on the opportunity for a great relationship. [Read: 20 strong signs of sexual tension to know you make each other horny]

Why people try to hide their true feelings

You may think it’s really silly for people to hide how they feel about someone else – especially if that person might like them back. Yes, it’s completely ridiculous, but that’s how we are as humans. We hide how we feel as a means to protect ourselves.

We’re not necessarily protecting ourselves from harm, but rather, we protect ourselves from heartache.

We’re all afraid of rejection, and in order to avoid that feeling, we just keep our feelings hidden so we never have to face it – even though we may miss out on something great.

Think about it. When you like someone, it’s a scary thing. If you find out that they don’t like you back, it can be embarrassing. So, it’s likely that people – and guys in particular – will beat around the bush instead of just coming out by saying that he has a crush on you.
