12 Failproof Tips On How To Get A Guy To Admit He Likes You

Women are said to have stronger instincts than men (this has been scientifically proven), and in most cases, we women know it when a guy has a crush on us. There’s no explanation to it, you simply know it. It’s that sixth sense that tells you if a person likes you or not. So, even when it comes to knowing what a guy is thinking about you, if you trust your instincts, you’ll just know it. However, sometimes you have to depend on other clues. Maybe the things he says or doesn’t say. The way he talks to you, the things he does for you, etc.,

It’s really sweet how some guys could simply be dropping all the hints and not saying it at all. Like, he could simply be playing a very important role in your life, the role of a boyfriend without actually giving that relationship any credit. He could be doing it all ‘right,’ yet not speaking about his feelings. Initially, you’d enjoy that attention, the suspense, and the chase, but when your instincts kick in and you know what he’s up to and he isn’t admitting to it, it could get a tad bit frustrating.

But, that doesn’t solve the problem, does it? Knowing that a guy has a crush on you is one thing, but getting him to admit it is a whole different story. Guys sometimes can be very good at concealing their feelings, or they simply don’t gather enough courage to express it for the fear of rejection or looking stupid. Their reasons could be many, and for those reasons, they could be putting their thoughts on hold. But deep within if you know that he likes you, you could do him a favor and get him to admit it to you.

So, if you’ve been hanging out way too long with a guy who gives you all the ‘green’ signals that are screaming that he is interested in you, but, isn’t saying a word to confirm the signs, then you have to step up and get him to do it. Well, we don’t mean to say that you need to coerce him, but simply give him that little push so he can finally admit his feelings for you. We all need that nudge from time to time to help us move forward.

While there are many ways to do it, here are 12 tips on how to get a guy to admit he likes you.

1. Build trust

Not all people are trusting; sometimes even if a guy likes you, he may hesitate to tell you because he doesn’t trust you. He doesn’t trust that you would take it all well, or if you would mock him or simply turn him down. Trust is built over time, and so you have to give him enough time to begin to trust you.

2. Talk, but listen more

Sure, it helps when you talk to him about yourself or about him, but make sure you’re listening to what he has to say too. Often, people get discouraged when the other person doesn’t pay enough attention to what they have to say. So, don’t chase him away by talking non-stop. Do listen to him once in a while.

3. Encourage him to have a conversation

Him: Hi, how are you?

You: I’m fine.

Him: What are you up to?

You: Nothing much.

Him: ….. *Stabs his thumb with a knife*

Well, if your texts look similar to this, then you sure have a problem. You couldn’t possibly get this guy to admit he likes you. Simply because you’re acting like a crackpot! The first rule about holding a conversation is by showing an interest in the other person. Ask him questions about himself, let him tell you, and let him do the talking.

4. Talk about feelings

After you’re done speaking about the weather, the news, latest politics, and celebrity gossip, talk about feelings (not necessarily in that order!). Your feelings and his feelings. Get him to warm up to the idea of opening up to you.

5. Don’t overdo anything

The last thing any guy wants is to get smothered by a girl. If you have the slightest idea that he likes you, you should probably consider not suffocating him by being around him 24/7, and not letting him breathe! Give him space and time, so that he has a chance to miss you.

6. Be yourself

Pretending to be someone you’re not doesn’t help anyone. Besides, why would you want to do that? A guy who doesn’t like you for the person you truly are doesn’t deserve you anyway. So, be your own true self. Don’t try to be someone you’re not to please people around you. Trust us, that never works out the way you thought it would.

7. Making him jealous might help

This may be pushing him a little, but if you have to make him admit that he likes you, you could try the old trick of flirting with other guys and making him a little jealous. How to get a guy to admit he likes you? It’s simple – make him jealous by flirting with other guys in his presence. A small tip – don’t go overboard though, know your limits.

8. Let him miss you

Maybe this is your time to act pricey, but don’t be available for him 24/7. Let him miss you sometimes, your absence should make him want you more, and it could also make him admit his feelings for you. So try that!

9. Don’t give out your secrets

It’s nice when there is still some mystery between two people. It makes you curious and keeps you interested. Likewise, don’t let the cat out of the bag too soon. Let there be that air of mystery around you, let him come to you wanting to know you more and be drawn to you. The minute you tell him everything about yourself, there is a small chance that he could lose interest. So, let him stay a little curious, a little charmed by your persona, and completely bowled over by your aura.

10. Appreciate him

Nothing like stroking a man’s ego in a way that makes him proud of who he is. One of the simplest ways to do this is by appreciating him every now and then. Men may not always say it, but they look forward to getting appreciated, they like it as much as we do. If he has gone the extra mile to help you out with something, or simply has been there for you in your hour of need, or is sensitive to your feelings, you may want to let him know that you are aware of what he is doing and that you appreciate the things he does for you. This will not only boost his ego, but will also make him feel like he is doing the right things for the right person.

11. His views on relationships & commitment are important

Getting to know him better would also mean to know his thoughts on relationships and commitment. Bring out the topic, let there be no big, unacknowledged elephant in the room. Talk about it, and perhaps it will break the ice that has been formed in his head, and who knows, he could simply admit to liking you.

12. Ask him directly

So what if he doesn’t say it out loud, you could ask him directly about his feelings. It would mean that you are taking the lead, but what the heck – someone has got to do it! So, what if it’s you? Ask him, and if he admits his feelings for you, you’ll know for sure. :)

Many times, you’d feel the energy, the chemistry, and the tempo going all at once, but the guy may not admit to it. It could get tiring for you to wait for him to say it someday; hence, you could get him to say that he likes you. Don’t worry, you wouldn’t be coercing him into doing something that he doesn’t want to, you are simply giving him a lead. A gentle push. Something that we all need at some point in our lives. There is nothing wrong with doing so, the suspense would have simply given you sleepless nights, and if you are able to get him to admit it, you could then sleep peacefully knowing that he likes you. So, think no more about how to get a guy to admit he likes you and read through the above tips that will ultimately get a guy to speak his heart!

Good luck and let us know how it went. We’d love to hear from you!
