When you've been friends with someone for so long it can sometimes seem hard to see the tell-tale signs that they like you. So, before you stress about if they like you, you need to interpret their actions and see if there’s any ‘signs' or feelings transcending. But guys, let’s not forget that signs a guy likes you can be different from signs a girl likes you. Still, some things remain consistent no matter the sex of a person. Here are some common ways to tell if your friend wants to take your relationship to the next level.
1. They're always available
A major sign that your friend likes you is if they're constantly available to you and don’t want to miss a chance to be around you. Whenever you are in need they never seem to say "no" and are able to cancel or delay plans with others to help you or just hang out with you.
2. They want to be alone with you
If your friend constantly makes excuses to have private time with you or tries to make plans that don't include any of your other friends, it's possible that they're attracted to you. If you agree to hang out and bring another friend, notice if your friend is disappointed this is a definite tell-tale sign that they may be into you.
3. They're always willing to do you a favour
Majority of the time, If someone really likes you, they'll go out of their way for you more than they will for others. This can be seen in a group setting when you assume they're just nice and being friendly. Quite often, a person is overly nice because they like you in a romantic way.
4. They never seem to like the person you're dating
If a friend never seems to like the person you're dating or they are always finding something "wrong" with your partner this could be a sign they are into you, especially if this happens often.
5. They pay you lots of compliments
If a friend constantly gives you personal compliments about who you are as a person they have built an attraction to you and possibly ignore your faults in favour of your
6. They always find ways to touch you or be near you
If a friend takes every opportunity to touch you in subtle ways, it might be a sign they're into you. They may touch your arm or hand during conversations, their hugs may last longer than your other friends. It does not always have to be obvious, it can also be physical positions when out in group settings they may sit or stand next to you or always staying near you be observant of this especially if you think a friend likes you.
7. They tell you they like you
If a friend straight up tells you that they like you, it most likely means they really like you and you should take them seriously. If the feelings are not mutual try and be kind, have a discussion with them about how you feel. Friendship is about respect, so if you respect them you will value them more and not string them along.
