Ways to Tell If A Guy Likes You On Facebook

It can be hard to tell if he likes you just by looking at Facebook.

Are you wondering if that man, who suddenly seems to be a presence on your Facebook page or in your Facebook chat box likes you? Here are some ways that you can investigate the matter.

  1. 1
    Whether you know him or not, the fact that he has friended you is usually an indicator of whether or not he is interested in you
    .
    However, before you assume anything, look at his pages to make sure he is single. Just a reminder that it is best to look at his Relationship Status and a few photos to find out if he is single. You should also check to see if there are a lot of women in his life, as it could mean that he is a bit of player. Most women do not want to be part of somebody's social media harem on Facebook.

    Does he text you often on the Facebook messenger feature
    ?
    Texting is the tool of flirtation on social media. If he is making friendly overtures to you, then that is a sign that, he likes you. Your next move is to send him a message back. If he replies right away and is very receptive, then he probably likes you. If the reply is a bit curt or distant, there may not be anything going on at all. He may simply be a chronic texter of strange women because he is bored or drunk and may be texting a lot of women at once.

    He posts or sends you news items, job advertisements or types of information that might help you with your career
    .
    This is a very positive sign that he likes you because a man who is encouraging you like this, wants to let you know that he loves you for your brains, as well as your beauty. A suitor who is doing this is well worth pursuing a relationship with. It also demonstrates that he has researched your interests and career in a good way and that he might be more willing to listen to you.

  5. 5
    He writes in full sentence ad paragraphs when he texts you and he tries to use proper punctuation and grammar
    .
    The lengthier his texts are, the more interested he is because men don't really love writing a lot on social media. It means that he wants to share his day with you, and even his hopes and dreams. A man who just leaves an icon or Gif for you to look at is showing that he is thinking of you, but it is not as personal as a message. Furthermore, the man that is using proper punctuation and grammar is showing respect for you. Only teenagers overuse the Facebook icons.

Tips and Tricks

Looking at his Facebook history could reveal some surprises about his life.

  • He may be showing you and the world that he likes you, but before you explore this further, you should make sure that he is not married or in another relationship
  • Sometimes these identities are not real and belong to "catfishers", which are men who will borrow money from you and not repay it, so make sure that any romance that you enter into is with a real person
  • Be aware that sometimes a man may seem to be flirting with you on Facebook, but his real intention is to get the attention of another woman who is close to you and either make her jealous or spark her interest
  • Not all social media flirtations lead to an actual relationship and in fact, there are all kinds of people that simply like flirting on Facebook because it is entertaining and have absolutely no intention of going ahead with anything
  • Some men only text women on social media when they are drunk or high and then have no memory of talking to you or posting to you the next day
  • If a man is constantly tagging you in posts you can set your Facebook permissions so that his photos do not appear on your wall
  • The best way to get rid of a man who is annoying you with too much attention on Facebook is to ignore his comments and never respond to them
