That guy that always teases you? It's very likely that he's got a serious crush on you!

  • Published: , Refreshed:

We once published an article here on how to become more attractive to members of the opposite sex.

After working on yourself and becoming just as attractive as you like, how do you know if the magic is working already?

How do you tell that people, or someone in particular finds you hot and irresistible?

So, in case you are wondering what that guy or lady in your class, office, mosque or church thinks about you, here are five vital signs that will tell you whether they are into you or not.

1. Closing the gap 

If someone is interested in you, they'll do their best to get closer to you over and over again, no matter how much you rebuff or curve them.

2. Over-blinking

According to the experts, if you notice that your colleague at work blinking much more than usual, that's a great indication they might be into you.

They base this judgement on the fact that prolonged eye contact, combined with excitement, forces people’s eyes to dry out much faster. 

They might also fidget a lot when around you, and also touch you at every given opportunity.

3. Talking too much and teasing you

Men and women use teasing as a sure way of flirting.

This, according to them, happens from an early age, when boys and girls chase each other around, pull each other’s hair, ear, nose and all that stuff. 

Alex and James say this continues well into adulthood, as both men and women find themselves making fun and cracking jokes at the person they are attracted to.

So, if there is that guy who’s always teasing you, chances are that he is deeply into you.

4. Noticing little changes  

Anyone interested in you would always be stealing glances at you, finding it hard to keep their eyes off you.

Therefore, when there is something that changes about you, no matter how little, they often notice.

These experts say if they weren't interested, they would never have spotted this to start with.

5. Pretending not to care

Ironically, for all the secret stares and endless teasing, they somehow try very hard to make you believe that they are not into you.

They won't text you back for ages and won't make you feel special; because they often feel that they shouldn't seem too eager in case it's a turn off.
