#1 He’s quick to reply. If you don’t have to wait more than a few minutes for a reply from him, then he likes you. Most guys—at least most of them in my own experience—aren’t as big into texting as girls are. So, if he makes an effort to be by his phone, it’s because he wants to talk to you.
#2 His responses are lengthy. When you get texts from him, are they short and simple? Or are they long and filled with information to keep a conversation going? If they’re short, he’s not into you. If a guy sends you a long text message it’s because he wants to talk to you about the topic. He makes a lot of effort to keep the conversation going to keep talking to you—because he likes you.
#3 He asks personal questions. If you notice that he’s been asking deeper and more personal questions about who you are as a person, he definitely likes you. Guys don’t pay attention to those certain details without a reason. If he’s asking about your life goals, it’s because he wants to know if you two are in sync.
#4 He texts you right away in the morning. If you wake up to a “good morning” text from him, then it’s almost certain that he likes you. Guys don’t bother with good morning texts unless they have a very good reason to do so—which is to get you to like them, too.
#5 He texts you before he goes to sleep. Just like the good morning text, if you haven’t been talking to this guy much during the day, but he still manages to send you a “goodnight” text before you both drift off to sleep, he likes you for sure.
#6 He compliments you in his texts. Is he calling you funny, cute, or even smart when he’s texting you? Then he likes you. These are all compliments he’s trying to dish out to win your approval. If you’re looking right past them then you could be confused about his obvious feelings.
#7 He sends flirty emojis. Guys aren’t huge on using emojis just to get a point across… unless that point is he likes you. If he’s sending wink emojis, heart eyes, or even the heart emoji in general, then he likes you. By sending emojis he’s trying to be obvious about the fact that he likes you without actually saying so.
#8 You never get a double text—unless he forgot to add something. You know how it’s advised that you don’t send him multiple unanswered texts? Well, guys know the same rule and probably use it so they don’t annoy you. If you only get one text at a time and he’s patient in waiting for your response, then he likes you. He does this so you don’t think he’s needy or annoying.
#9 He initiates the texting conversations. Is he always the one to start the conversations? If he’s seeking you out, it’s because he likes you. Guys just don’t go around texting someone first that they don’t want to talk to.
#10 He finds random things to talk about. Have you ever noticed he goes off on a random rant whenever the conversation seems to be trailing off? This is a big sign he likes you purely based on the fact it’s his attempt at not letting the conversation die. He doesn’t want to stop talking to you.
#11 He asks about your day—and genuinely cares. If he’s texting you throughout the day wanting to know how work is going or what you’re up to, he genuinely is interested and likes you.
#12 He talks about himself. Now, a lot of people may get the wrong idea by this. If he’s talking about himself, how can he possibly care about you? However, this could mean that he likes you. If he’s talking about himself and mentioning his hobbies, likes/dislikes, and goals, he’s basically telling you who he is, and letting you decide if you like him. It’s like he’s showing you everything he offers you because he likes you.
#13 He texts about hanging out or says stuff like, “if I was there…” If he mentions wanting to hang out or says stuff like, “If I was there I would…” then he likes you. He’s putting the idea of the two of you together in your mind because it’s already in his.
#14 He talks to you about his *minor* problems. Does he come to you with some minor issues of his? Say he’s having trouble at work or in school and is a little stressed out. If he’s going to you for support or advice, then he likes you. He values your opinion and thoughts on his situation and is comfortable enough with you to let you see his more vulnerable side. Something that proves he likes you.
#15 He says he likes you. This is an obvious one. So many girls just don’t take it seriously because it was “over a text.” He might just make a comment like, “I like you, you’re funny,” and you may not even realize how serious he is about it.
