It's an age-old dilemma - a guy and a girl become great friends then, out of the blue, there's the tiny but persistent inkling that one (or both) partners long for something more.
Sometimes, smitten guys will actually go as far as to to contrive situations where they'll have to touch you.
If you can, you may want to find a mutual friend - someone who's close to both you and your guy friend. On the other hand, asking someone who's friends with your guy friend and not with you can be riskier. If your friend doesn't want to hang out with other people when you're hanging out together, that could definitely be a sign. If your friend is paying you a lot of compliments, or making cheeky little flirty comments, it's a safe bet that they like you and are interested. Even if they don't like you, if your friend is a true and caring friend, they won't be offended if you ask, or if you talk about whether or not you want to be more than "just" friends.
If you think your friendship might suffer, and you're not interested in being a couple, then you might consider not asking.
Asking around doesn't mean "spreading rumors." Don't tell people that your friend likes you if you haven't talked to them first. Even if you don't like them back, it can be good to clear the air and be honest with one another. In some cases, if your feelings are strong enough, it might be hard to stay friends like you used to be, if you feel differently about each other. If you catch your guy friend staring at you and he seems embarrassed or pretends to look away, you may have just caught him in a moment of heartfelt longing! Guy friends who secretly adore their female friend usually want to be around her as much as they can.
If your guy friend likes you, hanging out with you will become one of his favorite things to do.
Guys with big crushes on their lady friends will sometimes very subtly allude to their feelings in conversation. If your guy friend involves you in his love life by asking you for advice with other girls, it's usually a sign that he thinks of you as a non-romantic friend. Guys who wish they were dating their gal friend sometimes recreate the atmosphere of a date when they're hanging out with her. If he takes you to fancier, "nicer" places than you'd normally go to while hanging out and he "cleans up" his appearance, you'll know you're on a fake date.
This is one of the most important things to look for when trying to figure out whether a guy friend is into you, but it's something that's often overlooked.
As noted above, if he openly asks you for advice on how to attract and win over other girls, he probably doesn't see you as anything more than a friend.
Finding out whether your guy friend likes you or not doesn't have to be guesswork - one great way to cut right to the heart of the matter is to simply ask someone who's close to him!
There's a good chance with this option that the person you ask will tell your guy friend that you asked about him. If you're really confident, the simplest, most direct way to figure out if he likes you is just to ask him to his face. If you ask your guy friend directly whether he likes you or not and he says no, but he keeps flirting with you and being affectionate, you may have encountered a guy who's too shy to admit his true feelings to anyone.
If you find out that your guy friend likes you from one of his friends or from your guy friend himself and you know that you like him back, you have no reason not to ask him out. If your guy friend likes you but is too shy to ask you out, don't be afraid to completely ignore this outdated tradition!


You can learn the common signs that your friend might like you more than a friend, and you can learn what to do if the answer is yes, or no. You might see your friends often, but if you feel the need to check in with this person all the time, every single day, there might be a lot more there than a regular old friendship.
It's never ok to touch someone inappropriately and out of the blue if you're not interested. If they are giving you very personal gifts, such as poems, songs, or things that you specifically like, your friend may be trying to get a message across in big bold letters: I Like You. If your friend tells you everything–like, everything–then it's a pretty good sign that you've got a more-than-friends relationship. If you're just having good conversations but don't notice any other signs, it's not necessarily a sign of anything more. If you're just friends with someone, there's not usually any reason to feel nervous about anything.
If they get embarrassed or don't want to talk about it, it might be because their crush is sitting in your chair. If you're wondering whether or not your friend likes you more than a friend, it might be because you're feeling those feelings yourself.
If so, you might like them, but you also might like them even if you never really noticed them before.
If you've noticed some signs that your friend might have a crush on you, it's important to give some thought to the way that you feel before you do anything about it. If you're made uncomfortable by your friend's advances, it might be important to spend some time apart for a while.
If your friend does like you and you don't, or vice versa, it might make it hard to keep hanging out like you have been.
By keeping an eye out for signs of affection, looking for changes in your relationship, and asking others, you can begin to get a sense of whether your friend is harboring secret feelings or not. Most of the time, guy friends harboring a secret crush will (consciously or not) gravitate towards her - standing next to her at social occasions, sitting next to her at meals, etc.
He'll want to hang out with you as much as he can and will sometimes even cancel his other plans to be able to do so. If you think your guy friend is being especially affectionate with you, before jumping to conclusions, pay attention to the way he interacts with other girls.
However, if he seems unsatisfied with other girls, complaining about how he just can't seem to find the right person, this may be his way of hinting that he's interested in you.
This can work in your favor if you want your guy friend to know that you're also interested in him, but, if you don't, it can backfire.
This can be awfully nerve-wracking, but, usually, the temporary stress of speaking openly about your feelings is worth the closure of knowing for sure whether your guy friend likes you or not.
There's no reason that you should wait to be happy until you're asked out in the "proper" way, especially when the "proper" way is a relic of an earlier, more formal time.
If your friend has been suggesting lots of one-on-one hangouts, that's extremely common for both close friends and for flirty romances, and not necessarily a sign of a romance. If your friend seems to be suddenly anxious to be around you, that could be a sign that you're becoming more than a friend to them. If you made plans to walk around the mall, but your friend looks like they're done up for a date, it might be because they think they're going on one.
Even if you have to make it up, bring up the concept of dating someone else and see how your friend reacts. If you do like your friend and would like to be more, do you think talking about it might harm the friendship you do have.


If you've noticed more than a couple of the signs listed in the previous section, there's a good chance that your friend might like you. It's sad to think that your friendship might suffer, but in some cases, it's important to spend a little time apart so you can stay friends in the long-term.
If you suspect your guy friend of having a crush on you, looking for the tell-tale signs of bashful shyness is a great place to start. They'll be extra-generous with hugs, they'll always be the person to hand you something you can't reach, they'll "accidentally" bump into you while walking, and so on. If your guy friend suddenly seems to be contacting you to see what you're up to and find out whether you're busy every day, you may be dealing with a lovesick guy pal. Some try to steer the conversation toward romantic topics, asking questions about who their female friend likes and whether she's looking for someone. If your guy friend has developed a habit of playfully teasing you, making silly innuendos, or seems to enjoy scandalizing you, this shows that, at the very least, he's thought about you as more than a friend. If he acts the same way around other girls that he does around you, you may be dealing with natural flirt or extrovert, rather than a secret admirer. If your guy friend has a crush on you, there's a good chance that one or more of his friends knows about it.
When you ask your guy friend whether he likes you, be sure that you're in a private place, as most guys will be too shy to talk about their feelings in front of other people. Simply live your life and do what you want to do and eventually, this guy either will or won't gain some confidence. Enjoy your first date - since you're already friends, you'll be able to skip the awkward small talk and enjoy your time together as a new couple!
But, if you've noticed that it's happening a lot lately, or more than usual, it might be a sign your friend likes you. You may find that they're doing it to test your boundaries, like dipping your toe in the water to find out how cold it is.
Of course, you may find that your platonic relationship has suddenly turned flirty on a regular basis, where it wasn't before. Say something gentle and kind, like, "I've noticed that ___ seems to be paying a lot of attention to me lately. The eyes are said to be the window to the soul - even if your guy friend is too shy to admit his affection, his eyes may give away everything.
If your guy friend suddenly seems to be a little more "touchy" than usual, you can be fairly certain he has feelings he's not letting on. In this case, even though he longs for his friend, her presence makes him so nervous that he'll actually find ways not to be next to her. And if you don't like them, and they are making you uncomfortable, it's also important to tell them. Subtly pay attention to your guy friend's habits - if he seems to end up either right next to you or far away from you whenever you hang out in a group of people, you'll know something is up.
Keep track of the types of conversations you have with your guy friend - if they mostly seem to be about romance or dating, even if he makes no indication that he's interested in dating you specifically, this may be his way of signalling his interest.
You don't deserve to feel uncomfortable, and your friend probably doesn't want you to feel uncomfortable either.
If so, your guy friend may be taking you on a "fake date" in an attempt to make the real thing a possibility.
