Quiz: Does He Like Me? Questions To Ask To Determine Where He Stands

When you’re dating someone new and you really like him, of course you’re going to obsess about whether or not he’s on the same page. You don’t want to waste time and energy or get invested in someone who doesn’t feel as excited about you as you are about him, right? Before you start bugging out too much, take this quiz to find the answer you want to the all-important question: Does he like me?

  1. Does he reach out first? The effort in a relationship should never be one-sided, and if it’s you doing all the chasing in the beginning, that doesn’t bode well for the two of you as a couple down the line (if there’s even future potential in the first place). If he reaches out first sometimes (or just as often as you do), it’s pretty clear that he’s into you. Why would he bother otherwise?
  2. Does he find any excuse to touch you? Sure, he could just be trying to get in your pants, but if you’ve gone on multiple dates and he’s always pretty touchy-feely without being creepy about it, he obviously likes you and wants to convey his interest as clearly as possible. Don’t be afraid to use your body language to be flirty back. It’s so much fun to explore the chemistry in this way.
  3. Does he get weird when you mention dating other guys? You don’t need a quiz to know that a guy who gets tetchy, annoyed, or kinda sullen when you mention other guys or talk about going on dates. A guy who’s not interested in you romantically won’t care either way who you’re seeing. The only reason he’d be getting all in his feelings about it is that he wishes it was him you were dating instead.
  4. Is he currently single? This is perhaps one of the most obvious but most important questions on this quiz. Yes, he can like you even if he’s already in another relationship, but you have too much self-respect and self-worth to entertain that kind of mess. If he’s got a girlfriend, he shouldn’t even be on your radar. Don’t go there!
  5. Do you feel a spark between you and does it seem mutual? Just because you’re moderately attracted to someone doesn’t mean you have actual chemistry. Does something inside of you light up when you’re together? Is there some kind of weird electricity between you and can you sense he feels it too? If so, there’s a pretty good chance you’re on the same page.
  6. Is he always smiling when you’re together? If he’s smiling all the time when you’re together, he’s happy. You make him smile, and that’s a good thing. Chances are, he’s probably thinking how much he likes you too (but he probably won’t take a quiz to see if you feel the same). Yes, friends smile at each other, but you know what I mean here.
  7. Does he seem eager to hang out? If he has no romantic interest in you, chances are he won’t care much about hanging out with you. He’ll either claim he’s “too busy” or be noncommittal whenever you suggest plans. However, if he seems super keen or even asks you to get together before you even get a chance, you clearly need to get together (or at least see if there’s relationship potential).
