    If he doesn't pay any attention to you, then he doesn't like you.

    If he maybe pays a little bit of attention to you, then he maybe likes you as a friend.

    If he's keen on you, he will be looking at you and talking with you and trying to get your attention.

    Guys aren't really that subtle.

    Spend a bit of one-on-one time ... or try to ... and see his reaction. You'll be able to read it pretty easily.

    How To Tell if A Guy Doesn't Like You Anymore

    I've not had much trouble with this one, actually. Well, that's not completely true. A little more than a year ago I was dumped and it took me completely by surprise. I was actually out having drinks with an old friend, filling him in, saying things like, "I think this guy might be The One; it feels really great, I can't wait for you to meet him." Then I left and The One Who Wasn't The One called and said, "We need to talk," and that was that. So what do I know?

    But generally I'm pretty good at reading this. He stops calling, or he's not fully present when you're together. He doesn't want to look you in the eye. He doesn't want to touch you when you're nearby, or else he jumps your bones with a strange franticness like he's trying to convince himself of something. He gets squirrelly. This is the sign -- men express squirrelyness in different ways, so the particular signs vary, but the slightly evasive discomfort with you is a dead giveaway. They'll often try to come up with some kind of explanation for their behavior that softens it somehow. He might not have figured out what's going on himself. But squirrely is the sign that he doesn't like you anymore.

    Now the interesting question is what do you do when you notice this? I don't believe it can be fixed, so I just walk away, generally at the first sign of squirrel. As I get older that's easier to do, without blame or dread or moroseness. (I still fight all those things, of course, but it's much less overwhelming than it used to be.) Sometimes this requires a forced dump, other times you just need to acknowledge his ambiguity, absolve him of it, and say, "good luck with this, no hard feelings, maybe our paths will cross again someday." Sometimes they come back, sometimes they don't. It's not your fault that he doesn't like you anymore. Well, what do I know, it might be your fault. But there are plenty of reasons he could be confused that aren't much about you at all. He might never have really liked you at all, or he might be still dating his ex-girlfriend in his head, or he might be trying to pretend he's not gay, or he might be falling for his cute next door neighbor, or who knows? None of this stuff is your baggage. Get out. Who wants to date a squirrel?

    You flirt with him but he doesn't flirt back or if his just socially challenge and doesn't know how to flirt back then try touching him see if he touches back. If he smiles when he sees you, if he looks at you a lot. Or if his shy its even harder to tell because he would act like he doesn't like you. You have to learn how to open up shy people to you then you will know.

    perhaps you are not his type, or maybe he is shy and doesn't show his affection.
