Question Posted Thursday December 15 2005, 5:02 am
Is there any way to tell by a hug if a guy likes you in a romantic way? I've had many different types of hugs, but most hugs are from family and friends, that's the type of hug where it's friendly, but does not in any way feel sexual.
I'm asking because a guy that I'm just friends with, after giving me my birthday gift, hugged me, but when he hugged me he held on for a couple seconds longer than most hugs last, and then he started to to stroke my back really slowly with his hand. There was no one else around, and normally he's shy around me with other people.
Do you think this was his way of letting me know he likes me as more than a friend?

If not that he likes you it means that he likes you as a friend really much. I have a guy friend who hugs me and kisses me etc. and we are all the time at school together but i think that he sees me as a friend.
You should think his general behaviour.Is he talking to you more than the others? Does he says hi if you don't tell him something? How is his behaviour with other girls??? If he behaves to u somehow specially and is shy but likes to talk with you, that means that he likes you. This hug, in my opinion means that he likes you because you say that he is not really like that in front of others and being alone and doing that is somehow a message. My advice is to show him something more if you like him too. Show him that you are interested and talk to him... Smile and make him feel important...And...GOOD LUCK!!!
P.S. It is important giving you a present, i think.Because usually boys are not that gentlemen with girls that see only as friends! [ smile's advice column | Ask smile A Question ]
