Have you ever found yourself in a position of having feelings for a guy but not knowing if he feels the same way? You try to get creative and think of ideas on how to make a guy confess his feelings. And yet, you’re stumped. After all, men are very complex emotional creatures. They are rarely ever in touch with their emotions. As a result, it can be very frustrating on your part. You want to know if he feels the same way, but you have no way of knowing.
Through the practice of trial and error, specific trends have emerged in relationships. From this, women have been able to gather some of the best practices in getting men to open up about their feelings. If you want, you are free to use some of these tips and tricks yourself. Of course, they aren’t necessarily guaranteeing that he’s going to open up. However, it’s going to put you in a much better position to get him to confess his feelings. Some men just require time. You just have to stay as patient as you can be.
There are some ways to be at least able to tell if a guy is into you. As Jack Schaefer, Ph.D., wrote for Psychology Today, mutual eye contact is an early hint that somebody may have feelings for you. You may also be able to tell if a guy likes you if they find ways to touch you, such as picking a piece of lint off your clothes. Leaning in towards you while you’re talking, or mirroring your movements are other ways a guy may show he’s interested in you, whether he’s admitted to it or not.
Getting a guy to admit he likes you can be tricky
Once you’re pretty sure that a guy is into you, the tricky part is getting him to admit it. If you’re dead set against flat out asking him, the only thing to do is wait it out. Getting a guy to admit he likes you may just be a matter of biding your time and letting things unfold naturally. According to dating coach Elliot Scott, building up trust is essential. “Anyway, for a guy to trust you enough to open up, he needs to know that you are not going to freak out as soon as he pours his heart out to you,” wrote Scott in a blog post.
A guy who likes you may be too nervous to admit it in case you don’t reciprocate his feelings. Dropping hints that you love him back can help boost his confidence and encourage him to reveal his true feelings for you.
Then again, you could just tell him you like him and ask if he likes you back. While many people are nervous about making the first move, and women often feel like they should wait for a guy to ask them out, shooting your shot can be both liberating and empowering. Making the first move can improve the dating game for women. According to an OkCupid survey, when women make the first move, their chances of attracting more attractive men are increased.
Six Simple Steps on How To Make A Guy Confess His Feelings:
1. Respond to His Body Language
Pay very close attention to his body language. Without him realizing it, he’s telling you how he feels with how he’s acting. If his body language is continuously positioned in a way that is inviting and approachable towards you, then that’s a good sign. That might be all you need to work with.
2. Express Your Gratitude
One great way of getting him to lower his guard is to express your gratitude. You always want him to feel as if you are appreciative of the things that he does for you. This way, it makes him feel good about himself as well.
3. Have Fun with One Another
Always try to find ways to have fun with one another. This way, he’s going to start associating the idea of fun with being with you. When this happens, he’s going to grow more and more comfortable towards you. And with that comfort, he’s going to develop a sense of vulnerability as well.
4. Express Your Interest in Things He Cares About
Another great way of getting him to be more comfortable around you is to express interest in the things he’s interested in. It’s so easy to get a guy to open up about things that he’s passionate about. Use that to your advantage.
5. Don’t Let Your Assumptions Get the Best Of You
Sure, it’s okay for you to hope that he has certain feelings for you. However, it’s crucial that you not let these hopes turn into assumptions. You don’t want to come out looking as if you’re very stuck up and self-obsessed.
6. Just Be Direct
You can only wait for so long. If it gets to the point wherein you can’t wait any longer, just be direct with him. Ask him if he likes you or has feelings for you. The worst-case scenario is that he doesn’t. If that’s the case, then at least you will know not to waste your time with this guy anymore.
