Social Media Signs A Guy Likes You: Your Modern Day Love Guide (1)

Sound like a familiar story?

Every last female on the face of our magnificent planet has scratched her head and asked herself the age-old question of “what are the signs a guy likes you?” at least once (and Googled it at least 500 times). Confidence and having a life have nothing to do with it – we all question ourselves every now and then, especially when it comes to guys.

The beginning of a relationship can be tricky, especially attempting to decipher the signs a guy likes you. As much as they hate to admit it, guys play games too, and I’m not talking about Chess or Fantasy Football. Sometimes, dudes are confusing!

Well ladies, what can I say – thank your lucky little stars for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Without them, we’d be in the garden tearing out petals like our grandmas – “He loves me, he loves me not.

Signs A Guy Likes You In The Digital Age

Learn how to master these modern day tools of romance, and you’ll be reading the 10 sure-fire signals that scream “let’s take it to the next level” in no time! (No petals involved!)

1. He Asks You Questions

When you send him a message, does he respond with a question? If so, this is a tantalizing clue that he’s done his personal development homework and knows that asking questions is a GREAT way to keep the conversation flowing and find out more about you. Whether he is asking you what you’re doing over the weekend, what your thoughts are about an important news story, or what’s on your play list, asking you SOMETHING shows a genuine interest. On a side note, if he asks you how to score a date with your best friend; send him packing. NEXT!

2. He Replies To Your Messages Promptly

In the era of WhatsApp, that whole ‘waiting three days to respond’ rigmarole is redundant. He knows that you can see that he has read your message, and if he likes you then he isn’t going to keep you waiting because he WANTS to write to you. No girls, he doesn’t have to reply immediately (hey, we’ve all got other stuff going on), but if he is into you, he will make it a habit to respond pretty darn fast. Obviously, everyone has busy lives and little annoying things called “work” or “school”, so don’t freak if once in a while he takes his sweet old time.

3. He Follows You On Instagram

Now, it’s fine to be friends with everyone you have ever met on Facebook, but Instagram is a different story. Unless you’re a super star photographer and he’s admiring your landscapes, he’s following you on Instagram because he’s scrolling through all of your selfies and giving them a big ol’ heart. If your account is set up under an obscure name and he manages to find you, then it’s a pretty tell tale sign that he’s curious and hot to trot.

4. He Sends You Unnecessary Texts

Does he text you out of the blue, with a random message saying just thinking of you? One of the key signs a guy likes you is this kind of solid proof he’s got you on his mind when you aren’t around. A text to say a song came on the radio that reminded him of you, that he’s reading a book that he thinks you might like, or that he just remembered something you said and laughed out loud on the bus are all “green means go” signals. You might be thinking, “but I send those messages to people all the time!” Yes, but you’re a girl. Unlike you, guys don’t just “chat” with anyone. They chat with people they LIKE. In this case, you!

5. He Sends You Nonchalant Snapchats Throughout The Day

If he sends you private Snapchats of what he’s eating for lunch or a new pair of shoes that he just bought, then he is probably most likely, definitely interested in you. In fact, he’s already acting like a boyfriend by making you a part of his everyday life.

But be warned ladies, I’m not referring to vulgar or immature images (yes, we have all received some of those “gems”). Instead I’m talking about when he is motivated to share casual day-to-day elements of his life with you.

6. He Texts You Just To Say ‘Good Morning’

Do you ever wake up to find a text from simply saying ‘Good Morning’? Hmmmm this means that you are the first thing on his mind when he pulls back the covers. Yep, you guessed it, a great sign that he would prefer having you next to him under the sheets.

7. He Shares Something That Interests You On Facebook

One of the key signs a guy likes you is if you log onto your Facebook to see that he’s shared something on your wall that actually interests you. It might be something as mundane as the latest music video from your favorite band, but it’s actually a fantastic sign that he is invested in trying to get to know you and your interests – and he wants you to know it.

8. He Writes You Long Messages

Whether over a text, Facebook messenger, or WhatsApp, he doesn’t hold back when communicating with you. If he sends long and detailed messages, rather than just a simple response, you’re in like Flynn. On a side note, a stream of one-word replies should be an obvious sign that you need to cool it, you’re not getting anywhere baby.

9. He Likes Or Comments On Your Pictures

Go on, go a little psycho, you know you want to. Next time you’ve got a little time to kill, check out his level of activity on other female friends’ profiles (you never know, he might just be REALLY into this summers’ range of seafolly bikinis…) If you’re the only on getting the social loving, then take your little private-eye activity a step further. Analyze which images he likes; if they tend to be photographs of yourself rather than landscapes or group shots, then start smiling. Read his comments for further clarification, and obviously NEVER tell him about your little adventure in the crazy land!

10. He Contacts You During The Day

If a guy only ever contacts you late at night, especially on weekends, chances are that he is only after one thing. Don’t try to rationalize it, it’s seriously NOT the “only time he has free for texting”. If, however, he is regularly taking time out of his busy day-to-day life to send you messages between the hours of 9am and 5pm then, more often than not, you can consider it one of the signs a guy likes you. Of course, you should pay attention to the hours that he works. If he regularly works night shifts, an overnight text might not mean a booty call, but rather that he was thinking of you on his lunch break. (you beat his burger – WIN!)

11. He Adds Kisses At The End Of Messages

It may seem obvious, but does he add kisses or something cutesy to the end of his messages? The method of messaging is also important here; it’s much more common to add a kiss to the end of a text than it is in a Facebook message, Instagram comment or a WhatsApp conversation – however, if your text includes three kisses… well, that’s not common at all.

12. He Invites You To Events

When you log into your Facebook account, are you bombarded by event invitations all sent to you by the guy in question? If he is regularly inviting you to events, it is likely that he is doing so as he wants to bump into you there. Whether it is an invite to a party, gig, or concert where there will be lots of people, or an intimate dinner at a mutual friend’s house, he is requesting the presence of your company because he enjoys spending time with you.

Not sure I’ve covered it all? Comment below if you can think of any other signs a guy likes you through his social media activity.
