11 Hidden Signs Someone Likes You

Hey Optimist Minds!

Isn’t it lovely to feel desired and appreciated by someone? We all like to feel wanted because it gives our self-esteem a boost and makes us feel good about ourselves. 

In case we like the person too, there’s a possibility of it becoming something more than just an attraction. But before we get to that point, it’s important to know for sure that they have feelings for you. And sometimes, that can be a little hard to figure out.

The person might be shy or have some reason to not reveal how they feel. Perhaps they’re not sure if you like them back or they think it could be inappropriate to admit that they like you. 

Whatever their reason, if they’re not openly telling you that they’re interested but you have your doubts anyway, there’s a way to find out. This video will describe eleven hidden signs that someone likes you.

Recognising them can help you confirm if someone is attracted to you. But before we begin, we want our viewers to know that the best way to know for sure is to have a direct conversation about it.

Now, let’s start.


They listen to you intently.

If a person has a crush on you, they’ll pay attention to what you’re saying. They might engage and probe further to let you speak for longer. Since they’re interested in getting to know you better, they’ll genuinely listen to what you have to say.


They offer you food and drinks.

This is a far more subtle way of showing affection because it’s considered polite to share snacks. You can tell the person is into you if they offer them to you more than they do to anyone else.


They find excuses to talk to you.

This person might always initiate contact and look for any reason to start a conversation. It could be something relevant to the situation you’re in or something completely random. They’ll do whatever it takes to spend more time with you.


They smile at you without realising.

Unconscious smiling is a reflex that happens when we like someone. If someone has a secret crush on you, they won’t be able to help smiling when you’re around. And if you smile back, you’ll notice them express joy.


They prioritise you.

You can tell someone is fond of you when they choose you over other people or important tasks. For example, they might take a longer route to work just so they can run into you. Or, if you need help, they’ll skip whatever’s on their schedule to be there for you.


They notice every little change you make.

If you groom yourself or do something to make yourself look or feel better, it’s likely that they’ll notice it. They might bring it up when talking to you and ask you more about the change. You’ll feel seen and valued when they do this.


They frequently compliment you.

Since they like you so much, they’ll almost always have something nice to say about you. Usually, the compliments will seem authentic and thoughtful. If they really like you, you won’t feel like they’re simply buttering you up.


They blush when they’re close to you.

If you walk too close to them or you accidentally touch each other, they might start blushing. You might sense a slight discomfort but it won’t be unpleasant. Rather, they’ll be seeking feedback from your body language to see if you liked them being near you.


They lean in when they’re talking to you.

You can tell someone is interested in you or what you’re talking about if they seem attuned to you. Their body will appear oriented towards you and they might bend forwards to pay closer attention.


They get nervous around you.

If the person likes you and wants to impress you, they might act a little nervous in front of you. You might see them sweat, shake, or stammer because they’re afraid of being rejected by you. Once you start showing signs of interest as well, the nervousness will fade away.


Their eyes light up when they see you.

One of the biggest signs that someone likes you is if their face brightens up at the sight of you. You’ll observe their eyes opening wider, their pupils dilating, and their facial expressions showing happiness. It’ll seem like they got energised by looking at you.

Now that we’ve discussed all these signs, have you seen anyone show them to you recently? Do you think someone might be secretly liking you? Let us know your thoughts and stories in the comments. We’d love to hear from you.
