What are the signs that a guy likes you? How can you know what he is thinking? And why is it so confusing?

There are lots of reasons why a guy is hard to read. Here are some of the forces that may have shaped his behavior:

* Role changes

It's hard to tell if a guy likes you because the role of the male has been significantly altered in our culture. The rules for man-woman relationships used to be clear-cut. Today, there is no definitive dating and courtship blueprint. This change in customs gives everyone more choices, freedom, and...confusion. Men are hard to read because they aren't sure what their role is. What can you do as a woman? If you are interested in someone, be friendly, interested in what the guy has to say, and nurturing.

* Men are vulnerable

It's hard to tell if a guy likes you when he withholds signs of emotion or interest. Research studies show that men take longer to commit because they take the breakup harder than women do. Women may find this hard to believe but the truth are more vulnerable. Therefore, they are often more cautious.

* Men in love

In general, it's hard to tell if a guy likes you because men will hold off showing or allowing their feelings. When they fall, they fall hard. Men consider their girlfriend or wife to be their best friend. Women consider another woman friend to be their best friend. Most men love and like their romantic partners more than women do.

The above are some of the reasons men are hard to read. Their coping and recovery skills are different from those of women.

So, what are the signs that he might like you? Here are ten ways you can tell:

1. You see him standing across a room and he smiles at you.

2. When you look back several times, he is looking back at you and trying to make eye contact.

3. He threads his way through a crowded room to get near enough to say hello to you.

4. Men take roughly 15 minutes to decide if they want to date someone. If the guy stays and talks to you longer than that when you first meet him, he is probably interested.

5. He asks for your number or email address.

6. He contacts you and asks to see you.

7. He shows up wearing shaving lotion or cologne and you can smell it from a distance.

8. He's wearing a new shirt and he has a fresh haircut.

9. He's never had a dog but when he comes to the door he loves your dog. Ditto for your cat.

10. When you go out, if you run into any of his friends, they know who you are.

If some of the above ten behaviors are being exhibited, then you can look forward to getting to know this guy. Good luck and have fun.
