What BYU-I Boys Wished BYU-I Girls Knew!


I had so much fun yesterday as i got some boys talking about what they wished girls here on campus knew about us. It was fun hearing some of the experiences we all shared, the basic principles were the same.

1: Sometimes we just don’t want to talk. Don’t take it personally.

2: Understand that guys are single-minded and can only do one thing at a time. So don’t talk to us while we’re doing something. We will either ignore you, because we don’t hear you (honestly), or we’ll screw up what we’re doing because you’ve distracted us.
Exception to the rule: Interrupt us if something is on fire, if someone needs immediate medical attention, if Pamela Lee is on TV or if there is an emergency that needs a hero.

3: You can’t complain that there are no good guys around while some of us are still single.

4: If you ask us, “Do you think she’s prettier then me?” we just might say, “Yes.” Then what are you going to do? Please stop asking.

5: For us, driving is not just a means of going from point A to point B. It’s an opportunity to control a couple of tons of steel. We drive, therefore, we are.

6: If you want us to notice something, help us out by saying something like, “I went to the beauty shop today.”

7: We don’t go shopping. When we need something, we buy it.

8: We don’t believe you when you say money isn’t important to you. Can romance thrive without finance?

9: It’s not that we don’t want to make you happy, it’s just that sometimes, we don’t know how.

10: If you ask a question you don’t really want an answer to, expect an answer you didn’t want to hear.

11: Sometimes, we’re not thinking about you. Live with it.

12: We know your ex-boyfriend is an idiot. We also know know we may be one someday.

13: Anything we said six months ago is inadmissible in an argument. All comments become null and void after seven days.

14: Guys see a limited number of colors, like Windows default settings. Peach is a fruit, not a color.

15: If we ask what’s wrong and you say “nothing,” we will act like nothing is wrong.


How to Know if a Guy Likes You 4

1 Comment

Acknowledge any compliments that come your way:

If you do your hair or makeup differently one day, and the guy notices, that’s a very good sign that he likes you. Most guys won’t notice, and if they do, they won’t say anything unless they’re into you. Anything like, “You look nice today,” “I like that shirt,” or even “Did you do your hair differently today? It looks nice,” are all indicators that he could be interested in you. NOTE: If he’s a good friend of yours, these won’t necessarily be indicators of romantic interest. It could just be him being a good friend. Not all guys are this straightforward about compliments, so don’t be worried if he doesn’t compliment you.

Watch for him noticing ‘masculine things’ on you:

For example, some of your dad’s aftershave rubbed off on you when you hugged him. Your crush may say ‘is that aftershave on you?’ This indicates he thinks it is from another guy (and not your dad!)

If he talks to you on a Social Networking site:

If he chats with you often he may like you. He could also just be talkative and friendly so don’t assume he’s into you for chatting. He may put ‘x’ on the end of everything he says to you. That might not nessaserily mean he likes you. It could just mean that you are good friends. If he says ‘I know something you don’t know.’ This could mean that he likes you and wants you to be guessing and wants you to know and wants to see if you feel the same way. Or it could just mean he knows something you don’t know, eg. A new colour or the fact that he has a new friend or something.

Watch for him showing interest in things you like and do:

For example, if you like a certain genre of music that he likes as well, he may suggest bands or artists for you to listen to. Another example, if you play sports he may ask to play against you just to show off that he’s good at something you both like and then also have a reason to give you compliments as well.

Check for signs of nervousness:

Signs of nervous laughter, sweaty palms, deep breaths, fidgeting,or possibly even looking away quickly when you notice if he is watching you are all good signs of an attraction towards you and that he is nervous about making an impression on someone he likes.

Pay attention to his friends:

If they know he’s interested in you, they might tease him subtly when you’re around, hint to you that he likes you, or even try to find out if you like him. Study their reactions to your presence – do they smile? Do they turn to him? Do they smirk in a way that suggests they know something that you don’t?

Don’t ignore him If he shows genuine interest in you, like smiles at you a lot in the hallway, work, etc., at least go out for a walk.

Look to see if he imitates you If he mimics you, he probably likes you, such as, if you move to another table, he’ll go with you. (A girl actually told me “I’ve had a guy who liked me mimic me before, so I know this is one thing”

Pay attention to teasing. If a guy teases you a lot, it might mean he likes you, but if he doesn’t tease any other girl, he probably does like you.

If he hits you or playfully punches you on your arm, this may mean he likes you. A guy may hit you but it’s just flirting he probably just wants to see your smile You may find it annoying if you’re not into him, but otherwise if you hit back then that’s a way then he can know that you like him back!

Notice his eye contact:

Personally (and i guess for most guys too), I’m attracted to what i see when it comes to girls and women. This perhaps is the reason why the cosmetic and fashion industry is one of the worlds biggest. If i like a girl i would take advantage of every oppurtunity to steal a glance so i believe if he likes you, he may either look away quickly if he is shy, or he’ll try to catch your eye and hold it or make faces. This can be uncomfortable if you don’t like him.

If you feel like you have held eye contact just a fraction of a second longer than you would with anyone else, or if he looks away quickly, then there is something there. When he’s around you and he says/does something funny and everyone around laughs, his eyes will flicker towards you for a second to see if you laughed, too.

His pupils may dilate if he likes you, but this is quite hard to pick up on, and you might come across as acting strangely by looking that closely into his eyes. If you’re around him for a long time, it could be easier to pick up on gradually.


If he likes you, and he’s nervous, he’ll probably start talking about himself. Many times, guys feel the need to prove themselves- especially if you talk about another guy in his company, to what he’s saying.

Be aware (not “beware”)  of touching:

He might put his hand on your arm when he laughs, and won’t move his leg if it happens to touch yours, or he may hug you for small things – all are good signs of a guy liking you, unless he’s a bit of a “playboy” who flirts with a lot of girls. See if he uses any of the tricks in How to Touch a Girl, and see if he uses them more with you than with anyone else.

Watch his actions around other girls and see if he treats you differently:

 Some guys flirt with other girls to get your attention. It gives them a chance to see your reaction, and helps them know if you really do like them or not. You can tell that they are trying to make you jealous if they find little times when they’re flirting with the other girl to look at you. His eyes will flick over and look at you. Another sign is that when you leave, he stops flirting with the other girl. That will be a harder one to pick up on, but you can have a friend look for you or something like that. You have to be sneaky sometimes to find out if a guy likes you.

That’ll be all for now. I’ll talk to the guys and be back here with my find, just for you!!
