25 subconscious signs a man likes you at work (complete list)

Did you know that many people end up marrying the person that they fall in love with at work?

Is there a man at the office you like?

Do you think he may like you too, you’re just not sure?

This article will provide you with a list of 25 subconscious signs a man at work likes you and then you’ll know for sure!

Let’s jump right in:

1) He’ll find any excuse to be with you

One of the most obvious signs that a man likes you, at work or anywhere else, is the fact that he’s always around.

This means that he really enjoys your company and wants to be with you as much as possible.

So, have you noticed that he’s looking for any excuse to be with you?

For example:

  • He may volunteer to work on projects you were assigned.
  • He always comes to work at the same time as you – as if he’s waiting for you to appear so you can ride the elevator together.
  • He takes his lunch break with you.

If he’s always around, he’s subconsciously trying to show you that he likes you.

2) His eye contact gives him away

You know how they say that the eyes are the window to the soul?

Well, another sign that a man likes you is when he makes more eye contact with you than with anyone else. He’s probably doing it subconsciously, but he just can’t help himself.

Think about how it feels when you lock eyes with him.

It feels like he really sees you, like he’s staring straight into your soul. You feel a warmth spread across your body, your heart races, and you feel weak in the knees. He feels the same way!

But wait, there’s more!

Some men will act the exact opposite way when they like someone. These are generally guys who are a bit shy and withdrawn.

This means that he could also be into you if you notice him averting his gaze and trying really hard not to make eye contact.

It’s because he likes you so much that he gets nervous and he’s scared that if he locks eyes with you, you’ll be able to tell how he feels right away.

3) A gifted advisor confirms it

The signs in this article will give you a good idea if a man at work likes you or not.

But what if you’d like advice tailored to your unique situation?

A gifted advisor can answer all sorts of questions and give you the guidance you’re searching for.

Like, could he be the one? Are you truly meant to be with him?

When I spoke to someone from Psychic Source after going through a rough patch in my relationship, they really helped me out. After months of not feeling like myself, I was finally able to see my situation with better clarity and direction.

Not to mention, I was extremely impressed by how kind, empathetic, and understanding of my unique situation they were.

In a reading, a gifted advisor can tell you whether the coworker you’re attracted to likes you back, and most importantly, empower you to make the right decisions when it comes to your life.

4) He tries hard to make you smile

While flirting, men try to make themselves seem like the most attractive and interesting person possible, right?

Well, that’s why they always want you to smile. If a man at work is trying really hard to make you feel good, he’s signaling that he’s interested in you.

He’ll do this mainly by doing small things – taking the initiative to make sure that your day is going well or offering you a compliment as soon as he sees you.

He’ll also try to make you laugh, especially if you’re having a bad day.

Look at how he treats his coworkers and you’ll know for sure if he likes you or not because most men treat everyone the same way.

His attitude will speak volumes about how he feels about you.

5) He switches shifts to work with you

If you’re a bit observant, you may notice that he changes his shifts to be able to work with you.

If it happens once, it could just be a coincidence. But if it happens more than once, there’s a good chance that he’s into you.

For example:

You’re assigned a specific project that will require working late at night. You find out that someone volunteered to work on the project with you – and it turns out to be him!

Now, you may not know it but you’re the reason that he looks forward to coming to work each day, and if he couldn’t see you, he’d feel terrible!

6) He’s nervous around you

The next sign that a man at work likes you is if he’s really nervous around you.

The truth is that this is not the case with all guys, but some guys get nervous around women they like.

Perhaps you noticed some signs of this if you’ve ever been out on a date with someone and he seemed like he was always fidgeting with his hands or cracking his knuckles. That’s because nervous people often do little things like that to distract themselves.

Watch your coworker. Does he fidget in your presence? Does he seem to get nervous every time you talk to him?

If you notice these signs, especially combined with some other signs from this article, there’s a good chance that he likes you!

7) He goes out of his way for you

From staying late to help you finish your work, to bringing you chicken soup at home when you’re sick, this guy is definitely going above and beyond the duties of a coworker.

He wants to make sure that you’re doing well, and it makes him happy to help you out.

Think about it:

Does he do this for his other coworkers?

Of course not. That’s because you’re not just another coworker, you’re special.

If he’s going out of his way for you, he may not be expecting anything in return, but it’s another subconscious sign that he really likes you.

8) He remembers everything you’ve ever said to him

Most people have a hard time remembering things that aren’t important to them.

So, if you notice that he always seems to remember everything that you say, it’s a definite sign that he’s attracted to you.

This happens because when someone likes someone, they pay close attention to every little thing about them.

He wants to know everything about you so he can learn more about the woman of his dreams.

  • He remembers the stories you told him about your schooldays.
  • He remembers what makes you laugh.
  • He knows how you take your coffee.
  • He even remembers what you said to him the first time you met.

The truth is that people, and especially guys, don’t tend to remember every little thing someone says to them.

So, if he’s remembering, it’s obvious that he likes you.

9) He’s your soulmate

There’s just something about this guy at work, it’s like you’ve known him your whole life. You’re wondering if he could be your soulmate.

But how can you know for sure you’ve met your soulmate, “the one” you’re supposed to be with?

The truth is:

Unless you know for sure, you could end up wasting emotions and time on a relationship with someone who isn’t right for you.

But what if there was a way to get absolute confirmation?

I’ve just stumbled upon a way to do this…  a professional psychic artist who can draw a sketch of what your soulmate looks like.

Even though I wasn’t convinced at first, my friend convinced me to try it out a few weeks ago.

Now I know what my soulmate looks like. The crazy thing is, they’ve been right in front of me this whole time.

If you’re ready to find out what your soulmate looks like, get your own sketch drawn here.

10) His voice goes an octave when you’re around

A very exciting sign that a man at work likes you is if he begins to lower his voice when talking to you.

Here’s the thing:

Men use their voices to show other men how tough they are when they feel threatened. They also use their voice to flirt with women.

It’s not something that they’re aware of doing, it’s something primal that they have in their DNA.

By lowering his voice he’s showing you that he’s a strong male that you can rely on to protect you and that you should have offspring with him.

The bottom line is that if his voice is a bit deeper when you’re around, it’s because subconsciously he’s trying to appear more “manly” so that he can appeal to you on a primal level.

He’s signaling that he wants to be more than just your colleague, he wants to be your mate.

All you have to do to know whether he likes you is to listen.

11) He makes sure he looks good/He puts in a lot of effort to look nice

Men know that women are visual creatures. If he likes you, and he thinks you’re attractive, he’ll put in extra effort to look good for you.

He’ll get a new haircut. Groom his beard. He’ll even get a whole new “cool” wardrobe to make

you notice him.

And it doesn’t stop there.

You may even notice that he’s started to wear seductive perfume.

It all comes down to the fact that most guys don’t bother dressing up and smelling nice unless they’re trying to impress someone.

So think about it, could that someone be you?

12) His body language says it all

Body language is an essential part of (subconscious) communication. That’s why there are so many books and workshops on the subject.

In fact, many important people like CEOs of companies and politicians take lessons on body language so that they can appear confident, strong, and assertive.

Most people, however, give off signals with their bodies subconsciously.

Now, if you notice that he tends to lean in or come close when he speaks to you, it’s another sure sign that he’s into you.

If his arms are open and not crossed and his fists are open, it’s a good sign. It means that he’s “open” to you.

In short: If your coworker stands close to you and even touches you during a conversation, it probably means that he’d like to get even closer.

13) He makes sure to sit next to you in meetings

If you notice that he’s the one who always sits next to you in the meeting, then it could mean that he’s into you.

If you come to a meeting before him, he’ll quickly make his way over to you before anyone else gets the chance. And if he gets there before you, he’ll wave to you to come over and tell you, “Here, I saved a seat for you.”

It’s kind of like high school isn’t it? The boy who has a crush on you wants to sit next to you in class.

How cute is that?

14) He has a nickname for you

Did he come up with a special nickname for you? Are you the only one in the office that he calls by their nickname instead of their real name? It’s a clear sign that he’s flirting with you.

If you think about it, it’s a really cute gesture.

Here’s why: Nicknames are usually reserved for people who are intimate – friends, family, lovers. So if he has a nickname for you, it’s because he thinks of you as more than just another coworker.

But if you want more clarity on this, I’d suggest speaking to a gifted advisor at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier. They have helped me out in the past and I’ve always found them honest and compassionate in their readings.

So instead of trying to figure everything out on your own, speak to an advisor who’ll give you the answers you’re looking for.

15) He’s always looking in your direction

If you notice that he keeps looking at you when he thinks you’re not looking, it could mean that he’s really into you! He’s constantly checking you out because he has a crush on you.

What’s more, when you look up he’ll quickly look away and blush because he doesn’t want you to see that he’s staring.

This is a really cute and funny sign that he’s into you. It’s sweet how some men turn into boys when they’re in love.

16) He’s scared you’ll find another job

If he’s scared that you’re going to quit your job to find another one, this could be a sign that he has strong feelings for you.

At the slightest mention of you getting a better job, he starts to panic. He quickly starts coming up with reasons you should stay – like you’re bound to get a raise or promotion soon or everyone at work really likes you.

If he doesn’t want you to leave the company, it means that he doesn’t want to lose you.

In essence, if your coworker wants you to stay at a mediocre job instead of finding something better, it’s for selfish reasons – he wants you around to brighten up his days.

17) He invites you out with his friends

If your male coworker says he’s going to grab drinks with some friends after work and casually invites you along, it means he’d like to take your relationship to another level – outside the office.

If you go, you’ll get to know him better and he’ll get to show you off and introduce you to his friends. He’s probably been telling them all about you.

Now, he’s careful not to ask you out on a date just yet because he’s not sure how you’ll respond. This way he’s just being friendly and it takes the pressure off. If you come, great, if not, it doesn’t mean that you rejected him.

This is a really exciting sign, so if you like him back, don’t miss out on the chance.

18) There’s sexual tension between you

If you notice that there’s strong sexual chemistry between you and your coworker, it’s another sign that he’s as attracted to you as you are to him.

In my experience, when two people are attracted to one another, the sparks start flying in all directions. This can get a bit tricky if you work with the person. That’s why it builds tension.

People usually try to ignore the sexual tension at work because acknowledging it would mean that they’d have to admit their feelings to each other which could get messy and complicated.

19) He’s always joking around

Joking around is a great way to get someone to notice you or to establish a connection.

Is he always in a good mood? Does he have one of those contagious laughs?

If he’s always goofing around and making jokes then it’s obvious that he’s trying to make an impression on you.

He’ll always make sure to brighten your mood and put a smile on your face.

This is another sure sign that he’s into you.

20) He praises you in front of colleagues

Every idea you pitch at work, he’s behind you. You make a suggestion, he’ll wish he had thought of it.

When you complete a task, he’ll praise you in front of your boss and coworkers.

When you do something good, he’ll make sure everyone hears about it.

He thinks you’re amazing in every way and he wants to make sure everyone else knows it.

If he constantly speaks out in front of everyone to give you praise for something you did or said, make no mistake, he’s into you.

21) He compliments you

Here’s the deal: When someone likes you, they’ll try their best to let you know.

So, if your favorite coworker is always complimenting you, it’s a major sign that he really digs you and would like to take things further.

Your intuition should be telling you that he has romantic intentions toward you, but if it isn’t, here are some of the compliments that may indicate that he’s into you at work:

“Your hair looks great today.”

“You look beautiful in that dress.”

“Wow! You’re looking sharp today.”

Or, he’ll say something like:

“Good work on that project.”

“Can’t believe you spotted that mistake, how amazing are you?”

22) Your co-workers have noticed

Now, it may not be obvious to you that he likes you, but it sure is obvious to everyone else.

If more than one coworker points out how much he looks at you or how lucky you are that such a great guy likes you, there’s really no more room for doubt.

Heck, some people may even mistake you two for a couple!

23) He looks for any excuse to make physical contact

Making physical contact while flirting – especially at work – is something that men today have to be careful about because they don’t want to cross any lines.

It’s actually something that they’ll avoid doing so as not to offend the object of their affection.

But you see, when you like someone, you’re naturally drawn to them and your body will subconsciously look for excuses to make contact.

The signs will be subtle, but if you pay close attention you’ll notice.

  • It may be a pat on the back.
  • His knee might touch your knee when he sits next to you.
  • Your fingers might brush against each other as he hands you some papers.
  • He may even try to hold your hand while talking to you.

He probably won’t be aware of doing it but it’s clear that he really likes you.

24) He actively follows you on social media

Does he know that you have a Twitter account or Instagram page? If he checks it frequently, then it means that he’s into you.

He may even friend you on Facebook.

He’ll like all your posts and pictures and he’ll be sure to leave cute comments all over the place.

Simply put, he’s trying to get closer to you and get to know you better by following you on social media.

25) He likes to make conversation about personal stuff

Finally, he’s constantly making conversation about anything but work.

He wants to know everything about you:

  • He’ll ask about your family – are you an only child?
  • Your upbringing – where did you grow up?
  • He’ll want to know what you like to do in your spare time.
  • What are your favorite hobbies?
  • Do you have pets?
  • What do you like to eat?

Eventually, when he feels confident, he’ll even ask if you’re seeing anyone.

If he’s showing an interest in your personal life and wants to get to know you better, it’s a clear subconscious sign that he likes you.


These 25 subconscious signs a man at work likes you are a great way to figure out how that coworker your eye feels about you.

But it never hurts to be sure.
