The next question is, in what way does he “like you” – he wants to hook up and be together, or just have sex, or he just likes you in a “I feel sorry for you” way, and he thinks you're cool, but he'd never be with you.Try to tune into the tone of his voice when he says this, you'll know which type of “I like you” it was immediately, just look at him! He's obviously trying to keep the conversation going with you. So he keeps asking, and asking, some seemingly irrelevant questions, just to keep things going.Look at it like this – does he buy his friends a drink?
Does he push his chest out a bit, does he try to look more macho, are his feet pointing toward you? A guy that really likes you might just be really open about it and tell you “wow, you look amazing” – but he knows he can get away with it because he can read that you might also be into him.That's where a guide like Mirabelle's is great at helping you identify how he really feels about you, despite him trying hard to hide his real feelings.Men can even lie to themselves about how they feel about you.Maybe you're at a club, or at some house party, or you just ran into him in the street. It also depends where he asks you and what, but the point is – if he's trying to have a conversation with you, and you just met, he probably likes you.Some questions are just asked out of politeness, but as soon as you notice that it's not something that he's asking just out of a necessity, it's probably because he likes you. Small talk by itself is not a big enough sign, still – it's a plus.Some guys try to hide interest; others openly look you up and down and lick their lips. The problem is that most guys don't want to “lose face” and get rejected, so they play it safe.Especially in situations that can have social consequences – like at work, or school/college, or if he's a family friend – if he messes up, he might still be running into you. In some cultures, it's normal that guys get you a drink and it's not a big deal.Sure, guys and girls are different when they're just among close friends, or just guys or just girls, but still – he might be quieter when you're around, or more talkative, nervous, shy, or he'll try to act cooler, or be funnier to impress you. Think about it like this, when a guy isn't interested in you, he can still be normal towards you and have regular small talk (depending on the situation), but he (usually) won't have a reason to IGNORE you.Either way – if he's not 100% natural, he might like you, and that's why he's trying to impress you with something. A guy that likes you will either by shy and nice, or he'll ignore you and show confusing signals.Now, just because he asked you “where are you from? When a guy doesn't like you, he simply won't put in the effort unless he has something to gain out of it (like at work, or he wants you to help with his grades or an exam.)The fact that he's talking to you when there's no need to do so (because of work or something), is a good sign in itself.If he asks you questions and tries to dig deeper and find out more about you, that's a good sign.
