In a work environment, people form relationships, whether they like it or not.
The workplace is a high-pressure environment that requires that teams work together to accomplish the tasks at hand.
It often becomes necessary to depend on co-workers whether that means working through lunch together, completing tasks together, or attending social events with your coworkers after work hours.
These interactions create opportunities for friendships, but also relationships.
The workplace is a great place for many of us to meet new people, and potentially date someone new.
It’s common to develop feelings for someone in the workplace and even start wondering whether or not they feel the same way about you.
So, let’s face it.
Office romance is a thing.
However, when it comes to dating at work, there’s always a bit of risk involved.
You’re always running the risk of face-to-face rejection, you’re putting your professional reputation on the line, and if things don’t work out, you could even lose a job.
With all these factors to consider, it’s not always easy to know whether or not a guy is attracted to you at work or is just being nice.
The simple truth is that men are more open and straightforward than women when it comes to showing their feelings.
So if you are looking for signs he is attracted to you at work, you’ve come to the right place.
In this post, we will discuss signs he is attracted to you at work.
Here are some signs that he’s into you at work:
Signs He is Attracted to You at Work
1. He makes eye contact with you
He doesn’t just see you, but also seems to look deeper.
He will keep stealing glances at you and if you catch him doing that, he will look at you even more.
This may make him feel a little awkward, or even embarrassed but it’s a sure sign that he likes you.
This is especially true if he has no reason to be looking at you—for example, your desks aren’t near each other.
If he’s making eye contact with you from across the room, that’s a sign he likes you.
If he is the kind of guy who doesn’t like to be very expressive and always tries to hide his feelings, then this can be difficult for you to notice.
In that case, just pay a little attention to where you are standing in the room.
If he is always hanging around where you are, then that’s one of the clear signs he is attracted to you
2. He is eager to talk to you
This is one of the most obvious signs he wants to be more than friends.
If a guy is interested in you, then he will find ways to talk with you and make sure that there are no excuses for him not to talk with you.
He just wants to get you talking because he enjoys being around you.
3. He finds reasons to touch you
If he has a crush on you, then he will find reasons to touch you.
He might “accidentally” brush against your hand while handing over something or maybe even give you a hug when there was no need for it.
These small gestures can help you know if the guy is attracted to you or not.
4. He shares something personal about himself with you
Whether it’s his family history or a story about his childhood, when he reveals something personal to you, it is because he trusts you and wants to share more of himself with you.
This means that he wants there to be an emotional bond between the two of you, which is vital if there is going to be any sort of relationship between the two of you.
5. He asks you out on dates
If your male co-worker wants to take you out for lunch or after-work drinks, then this is a clear sign that he’s interested in something more than just a friendship.
If he asks to go somewhere alone or makes an excuse for why your other co-workers can’t come along, then this is a sure sign that he wants some one-on-one time with you.
Just make sure that you don’t give him the wrong impression by agreeing to these dates if you are not interested in him.
6. He wants to know more about you
If he is interested in getting to know more about you, he’ll ask many questions.
He’ll try to get closer by asking where you live, what do you like doing in your free time, if you have any siblings, etc.
He will even try to find out whether you have a boyfriend or not!
7. He’s always there for you
You might be having a bad day at work and he’ll come up to comfort you and ask if everything is okay.
He’ll offer to give a helping hand when it comes to work problems and will ask if he can do something for you.
This is one of the signs he likes you and wants to put a smile on your face.
8. He compliments you
One of the most obvious signs that a guy likes you is when he compliments you.
Because compliments are an easy way for a man to express his attraction without risking too much in terms of rejection.
He can always claim he was being nice and didn’t mean anything by it.
So if he compliments your hair, dress, or tells you he likes your perfume or comments on your shoes and even your work ethic, don’t be fooled: It’s totally on purpose!
9. He tries to make you smile or laugh
When a man is attracted to a lady, he will do whatever it takes to make his object of desire laugh even if it means telling bad jokes.
So pay attention to how much effort your man is putting into making sure that you smile and laugh.
If he is willing to be silly for your amusement then there is a good chance that he wants to make a good impression on you.
10. He smiles and laughs at what you say
Something about what you said strikes his funny bone, and he cannot help but giggle, especially around his friends at work.
It could be a joke, or maybe he was just happy with your response to something he asked.
Whatever the reason may be, it shows that he enjoys being around you and paying attention to what you have to say.
11. He does nice things for you
He doesn’t have to do any of this but he does.
He knows you like a certain candy bar and so he brings one for you and only you.
He thinks there’s a funny meme and sends it to you.
He remembers that your favorite color is blue and so he wears a blue shirt that brings out his eyes.
He may even help you with your work or go out of his way to make sure everything is turned in on time.
These are all signs that he is paying attention and cares enough to do little things that put a smile on your face.
12. He seeks and respects your opinion
He asks what you think about certain issues at work or maybe even outside of it.
If a guy likes you, he will want to impress you, so he will consider your opinions because they matter to him.
If a guy doesn’t care about your opinion, that means that he doesn’t care about you either.
13. He invites you to places
If a guy is interested in seeing you outside of work, chances are he’ll invite you somewhere specific — like a party, concert, or another gathering where he knows other people will be (and where there’s more privacy).
15. He starts dressing nicer
If a man starts dressing up more often or wearing nicer clothes, it means he wants people around him — including you — to notice him.
He wants to impress the woman who has caught his eye by showing off his fashion sense and good taste in clothing.
To put it simply: He wants to look good for you!
16. He’s always around
Have you ever felt that no matter where you are or what you are doing, this person just seems to pop up?
Or when you least expect it, there he is?
Well, that is because he wants to spend more time with you.
He finds any excuse possible to be around you and close to you.
This type of behavior would suggest that he likes you.
He may act like it is a coincidence but that is not true.
He knows what he is doing and why he is doing it.
17. He remembers the tiniest details about you
If he remembers the little things you tell him, it indicates that he’s paying attention to what you’re saying and is genuinely interested in getting to know more about you.
It also means that he cares enough about how much of an impression he makes on you.
That he wants to remember every detail about you so that when the time comes for him to talk to you again, it will come across as thoughtful and friendly.
18. He flirts with you
This could be anything from teasing/joking around to light physical contact, persistent eye contact, and smiles.
Flirting is a sign of attraction – he wants you to know that he’s interested in you.
What to Do?
Do you like him too?
What is your workplace’s policy on office romance?
If there are no policies against dating in the workplace, I guess it’s safer to return his gestures while you be on the lookout for warning signs, just in case he’s out to take advantage of you, and not in love with you for real.
