The expert told The List that if "he treats you like one of the boys," you're simply pals. "If he openly belches, farts, curses excessively around you, gives you high-fives, and anytime he invites you anywhere, he calls it "hanging out," you're pals," he said. Essentially, if he's not showing you any respect by at least pretending to hide his gross behavior from you, then you shouldn't be showing him any either.
That being said, this guy likes you! He's demonstrating that he values your time by not hiding what he eats, smells, and does in front of you. If he seems interested in more than just friendship, then take the next step toward dating him by learning about his favorite movies, music, and food preferences.
Of course, there are other ways for him to show you he's into you besides simply hanging out together. For example, if he asks you out on a date, takes you to a fancy restaurant, buys you gifts, etc., then he's definitely indicating that he's looking for something more than just friendship.
And finally, if he pushes himself away from the dinner table every time he sees your staring at him, then he's probably afraid that you'll judge him for his eating habits!
This may sound strange, but lousy manners might suggest that you're no longer in the buddy zone. A guy who likes you romantically will almost always be on his best behavior, at least early on in the relationship. If a guy is burping, farting, or chugging his drink in your presence, he has no romantic interests. Period.
If a guy isn't treating you with respect, then he's just not very nice. Even if he loves you and wants to show it, if he can't control himself around you then there's a good chance that he doesn't really care about you at all. He's just using you to get back at someone else or to blow off steam. In this case, you should probably stop waiting for him to change and start looking for a new boyfriend or girlfriend instead.
Here are 8 symptoms that he is solely interested in becoming FWB with you.
So, what does it imply when a guy talks about you to his friends? It's certainly an indication that he's interested to you, especially if he says nice things about you and acts attracted to you. It's also possible that he regards you as a friend or that you were simply a part of what he was telling them about. However, if he goes on and on about another girl, then he probably isn't thinking of you as more than a friend.
It's not unusual for men to talk about other women with their friends-especially if they like them or are interested in them. This can be done in a positive way by showing support for others or giving advice, or it can be done in a negative way by complaining about those women or teasing them about something she likes about themselves. Either way, it's normal for men to talk about other women with their friends.
If a man starts talking about you frequently or in a manner that suggests he is more than just friends with you, then it's time to worry about your relationship status. If he hasn't called out yet for some reason, it could be because he doesn't want to break up with you yet. Wait it out until he tells you otherwise. Also, remember that you don't want to pressure him into changing his mind, so don't start following him around or asking direct questions about how many other girls he talks to/about.
If you're wondering, "Does my man buddy like me?" here are some of the more subtle signs: He maintains eye contact with you for a longer period of time than a platonic buddy would. He is afraid that being attached to you would destroy their friendship. He's been texting, phoning, and messaging you more frequently. He wants to be your only friend. These are all signs that he likes you.
If you think he might have a crush on you, then read on for some more clues.
He keeps talking about you even though you've told him not to. This is a clear sign that he's interested in you.
He's been watching you for hours upon hours, never saying a word. This is another sign that he's attracted to you.
He wants to be your boyfriend instead of your friend. If he does this, then he must really like you.
He avoids certain topics with you even though they weren't awkward before. For example, he might stop talking about sports or movies after you've met them halfway through, as if knowing something embarrassing about either subject would make him uncomfortable being near you. This is yet another sign that he likes you.
He tries to act cool in front of his friends but ends up bragging about you behind your back.
