This guy in my class was looking right at me while we were sitting together face to face. As he was staring, he tilted his head to the side and smiled at me. He also slightly lifted his lower eyelids while he was doing so. He and I are close friends, but he’s been in a relationship for a few years. What does it mean when a guy stares at a girl like that?
Normally that would sign a guy likes somebody. But since you two are close friends it’s hard to tell. Maybe look for some more signs that are obvious to you it’s ‘more than friends’, put them all together and go from there to finalise it.
