How do I know if he truly likes me?

Does he frequently smile, wink or jokingly touch you?
If the answer is yes, you can safely assume that he is romantically interested. Men do not touch women that they are not interested in. A light touch during conversation or other meetings signifies he feels close to you or would like to be closer.

Another way of to tell if a man is interested is if he seems to get into a better mood or smiles a lot in your presence. In some cases you can tell there is a definite mood improvement when you are around.

Sometimes you can tell that he may be nervous, but is still delighted to see you. He will usually be interested in conversations and talking with you about whatever is going on around you.

Don't discount a man because he doesn't talk to you or show outward affection in the beginning. It could be that he is shy and unsure of himself or doesn’t know if you are interested in him. Sometimes in this situation it is difficult to know because the signals may be mixed out of insecurity and/or fear.

Give him a chance and watch for small body language signs like smiles, winking or other suggestive comments. It may take a few times of being around him for you to be able to tell the difference.

Men are hard to read because, in general, their ego's cannot stand rejection. Most men will walk a mile around a woman if he fears that she will reject him. If you ever knock his self esteem or reject him (even accidentally) he will probably stay away. Men are not good with bouncing back from rejection or a hurt sense of pride. They are also not good with their emotions and often avoid situations to keep from destroying their macho stance with the guys.

It’s also important to be honest with yourself and the man that you're interested in to have a long and lasting relationship. That's not to say that you should not be on your best behaviour, but there is really no point in acting like something that you are not. Balancing behaviour, good manners and a little flirtation is a great way to get a man and keep him.

Most men aren’t interested in a woman that is fake, so be yourself. Don't worry about impressing him as much as just having fun. Remember if you continue a relationship it is important that you continue being yourself. You can only act for so long and if you have been acting, this can cause problems later in the relationship.

How to tell if a guy likes you is really quite easy but if you’re still not sure at first just continue to have great dating fun and you will soon pick up on the signs.
