23 Signs He Wants You Bad (And What Does It Actually Mean)

23 Signs He Wants You Bad (And What Does It Actually Mean)

How can you decode the mysterious signs he wants you bad? There is really no bulletproof sign to confirm it. Maybe he’s just being nice and doesn’t want to hurt your feelings.

But, yet again, maybe he really wants you bad but doesn’t know how to tell you. Who knows?

If you don’t risk it, you’ll never know. You can as easily end up with a broken heart and be a victim of a manipulator, but then again, you could have the relationship of your life.

I know you want to find out the answer right now. Of course, you do. It’s so much easier to see things clearly and be safe.

It’s so much easier to fall in love with a guarantee that you’re not going to hurt.

But, sadly relationships don’t work that way. And when you think about it, you’re going to get a lot of mixed messages your whole life. You’re not going to know what he thinks and why he acts the way he does.

So, trying to crack the code and decipher the signs he wants you bad is not that big of a deal.

But you have to be careful to read the signs for what they are. Don’t fool yourself into thinking something that is not true.

Sometimes people fall in love so hard that they don’t see what is really happening.

Sometimes love blinds us and prevents us from seeing clearly. Sometimes he’s just being nice and doesn’t want a relationship with you, but since you’re head over heels in love with him, you won’t admit it.

How Do You Know If A Man Wants You In His Life?

happy couple talks while drinking coffeeFirst of all, you should try to be objective. Try to separate your feelings from your mind. That’s not an easy game to play because you can’t fight your heart.

You can try to ignore it and maybe you even succeed, but it will be really hard to judge the situation by only using the realistic and logical side of you.

But, try it, you’re only going to help yourself. Who knows? Maybe your logic saves you from future heartbreak and a lot of tears. If that happens, wouldn’t you be grateful to yourself?

The best thing you could do is to pretend that the situation you’re in is not concerning you.

Try to look at things with someone else’s eyes, try to be a third party, completely unbiased.

Maybe then you’ll manage to bring a decision that will work in your favor.

Before doing anything else, do try objectivity. I know it is so much easier said than done, and it takes a lot of guts and courage to accept the truth no matter what it is.

But, if it were so easy, women from all over the world wouldn’t be obsessed with trying to read the signs he wants you badly.

Even if you read all the signs and you’re positive that he wants you, there is no bulletproof guarantee that he’ll want you forever.

People change as the years go by and a lot of things you can’t influence can happen whether you like it or not.

So no one can say for sure that if he wants you bad now, he’ll want you bad forever.

23 Clear Signs He Wants You Bad

But, let’s leave the future and stick to the present.

If you have these problems and you can’t figure out what the heck he wants from you, if you want to protect yourself from the potential heartbreak, read these signs to be sure he wants you bad.

His body language will expose him

woman in red dress and handsome man in suit having conversation with glass of wineThe thing with guys is that they like to pretend they aren’t into you at the beginning. But, a well-known fact is that we can’t actually control our body language when we’re around a person we have strong feelings for.

The best way to find out if he really likes you is to pay attention to non-verbal signs his body sends out when you two are together. So, let’s find out what are the body language signs he wants you bad.

He always maintains deep eye contact

If your guy doesn’t break the intense stare when you catch him looking at you, but on the contrary, he tries to maintain that eye contact and smiles at you gently, it’s a surefire sign he’s attracted to you.

He enters the zone of your personal space

We all like to have our personal space, you know that socially acceptable distance we all like to keep from other people. And we all get a bit angry when someone tries to invade it.

However, it’s not the same when the person we like enters our personal space. In that case, it’s totally acceptable and we even feel happy about it.

If you notice that your man is subtly invading your personal space, moves his seat to sit closer to you or touches your arm while you two are talking, it’s a very good sign he’s interested in you.

He’s actually mirroring your body language

If your guy starts to imitate your hand gestures, posture or maybe even your speech pattern, that’s it. He has fallen head over heels for you.

You should also know that he isn’t consciously aware of it. But, that’s a good thing because mirroring someone’s body language is a sign of strong physical attraction and sexual tension between them.

He runs his fingers through his hair

This can mean two things; either your man is nervous around you and doesn’t know what to do with his hand or he just wants to look good for you.

In both cases, it’s pretty obvious that your guy wants you bad, but he’s probably just afraid to make the first move yet.

He talks with his hands

If your man uses hand gestures every time he’s talking to you, as much as it may seem awkward and funny, it’s just a way he wants to be sure that you’ll understand him and that he’ll convey the right message. And he wouldn’t bother that much if he didn’t like you, right?

Also, it may mean another thing that may be more interesting for you… He’s doing it to show that he’s good with his hands (wink!).

He is nervous around you

The fact he’s nervous means that he is hiding something. He’s nervous because he likes you and doesn’t know how to show it to you.

He wants to impress you and prove himself worthy of your love. That’s when things go so cutely wrong.

You can see that he’s trying to prove himself but the fact he’s nervous messes it all up and everything goes wrong.

Also, he never acts like that when he is with his friends. It’s like he is a different person in their presence.

He’s loose and funny, but when you walk into the picture, it’s like he loses himself completely. That is a definite and undeniable sign he wants you bad and can’t hide it.

He wants to know everything about you

man typing on his phoneHe wants to know what your interests are, what you like and don’t like, and what’s happening in your love life. Simply put, he wants to know every little detail about you. That’s why he listens to you carefully.

I mean, he is not a creep that is stalking you on social media. He is genuinely in love with you and wants to know what makes you happy.

He’ll ask you a lot of questions to get the chance to get to know you better.

A guy who is not interested in you wouldn’t go through all that trouble just to know things about you.

He would try to find out just the basics, so he has enough material to work with because he probably just wants to get into your pants.

He laughs at everything you say

You can be funny, but no one is so funny that you have to laugh at every little thing that is being said.

But, this guy is subtly showing you signs he wants you bad. And the thing is, he really genuinely thinks that everything you say is that funny. He thinks you’re hilarious.

If a guy laughs with all his heart at everything you say, he is really into you.

I mean you may be funny, but in the best-case scenario, your jokes are okay.

You probably have moments when you shine, but it’s not all the time. It’s definitely a sign he likes you.

He texts you

couple talking at restaurantThis means he wants your attention. He wants to get in touch with you.

Maybe he is feeling lonely and wants to be in your presence. Now, it’s so hard to see if he’s texting you because he just wants a one-time thing or he is texting you because he really misses you and wants to be with you badly.

Don’t worry, there is a solution to this problem, too. You can easily figure out what his intentions are from the way he texts you.

Try to test this in a real situation. Try to ignore him to get his attention and if there is really something going on, you’ll end this on a positive note. So, don’t text him back for a few hours and see how he behaves.

If he remains silent, he is probably not that interested in you and his intentions are the ones you want to avoid, but if he texts you again, worried that you’re not answering back, then you can be sure that he really cares for you and it’s an obvious sign he wants you bad.

He gets emotional around you

Maybe just his friends and family have seen this emotional side of him. He feels safe enough around them to let them know how he really feels, but the thing is, he’s doing this in front of you, too.

Yeah, guys have feelings, too and despite what the media wants you to believe, some of them even want to talk about those feelings. After all, they are human like we are.

Showing you how he feels means that he really feels something for you.

He trusts you enough to let you into his vulnerable and delicate zone.

As I’ve said, only his friends and family have seen that side of him before and now you are honored to join the club.

He contacts you on social media

happy young girl typing on her phoneJust another one out of a lot of clear signs he wants you bad. If he’s overly interested in what you’ve been up to and a bit too active on your social media accounts, then you should know that there is something more than ‘just interested’ hiding behind his intentions.

If he’s commenting and hitting ‘like’ on your every post, he’s sending you subtle signals that he is emotionally attached to you.

Maybe he is too shy to admit it or he’s scared of rejection, so he is playing it cool and soooo slow it kind of drives you crazy.

Why won’t he say it already? I know, but he’s just touching base to see if there is something there—to see if there is any chance to be with you.

He wants to see you badly

How do you know when a man wants you badly? Simply, he wants to see you on a daily basis. He wants to spend a lot of time with you, actually, all of his free time because you are currently the one thing that gives his life a purpose.

He worships the ground you walk on and he just can’t get enough of you.

And even when you meet, he is asking when you are going to meet and hang out again. It’s obvious that he enjoys spending time with you.

Of course, this can go both ways. He may just want to meet you because he has some other plans other than the fact he wants you bad.

The only thing you can do to prove he truly wants you bad is to make him fight for you and make an effort to meet you.

Don’t say yes right away. Let him work hard to get you. But, be aware, if you string him along, he’ll be under the impression you don’t like him and will lose interest and just stop trying.

He’s there for you… Always

man speaking on his phone while driving carHe knows that it’s not enough just to say this, and that he has to show it through his actions.

He never ignores you, not even when you get in a fight over something. He’s always the first one to come when something bad happens to you. He prioritizes you and your well-being over anything.

If your man has proved to you that you can count on him no matter what and that he’ll always stick by your side, you can rest assured knowing that he doesn’t want to play games with you but that your man genuinely cares for you.

He drunk dials you

Okay, there are two sides to this scenario, as there are always.

Maybe he drunk dials you because he thinks he might get lucky, but on the other hand, maybe he drunk dials you because his real emotions come to light and he is too drunk to give a fuck what everybody will think—including you about why he’s calling you.

It’s probably that he never had the courage to confront you and say he wants you to your face.

So, now, after a few drinks, he got incredibly brave and decided to go through with it already and see what happens. It’s kind of cute, isn’t it?

Unfortunately, we don’t act the same, so there is no proven way to read through why he called or sent you a text message in the middle of the night drunk as hell.

But, if you get a text containing an apology in the morning, his feelings are genuine and true.

If you get squat, then he probably just wanted to have sex with you.

He’s never late

man introducing a girlfriend to his familyAlthough this would be more surprising if we were talking about a girl, it’s equally important. It’s a sign that he doesn’t want to keep you waiting. What a gentleman, right?

But, most importantly, it shows that he cares about you and respects your time. He really gives a shit and he doesn’t want you to think less of him.

I can see you imagining someone you’re supposed to meet and they are always late, lying on a couch watching a TV show and then suddenly he looks at the clock and realizes he is late meeting you. It gives a wrong vibe like he doesn’t want to meet you.

If you were important to him, he would even be 10 minutes early and not remember you at the last minute, like you were something to get over with, something he has to do.

He makes future plans with you that he always sticks to

He already mentions you when he talks about his plans for the future? Well, this calls for a celebration because this is an obvious sign this man wants you in his life forever.

You’ll probably notice how excited he is every time you two are talking about the future and making some plans to hang out or to go somewhere together.

And the most important thing is that he’ll never flake on you. If he promises something, he’ll follow it through no matter what. That’s how he wants to prove to you that he’s playing for keeps.

Of course, there might be a situation when his work gets in the middle and makes him cancel on you but he’ll always give you proper notice, reschedule it for another time and apologize sincerely for the inconvenience.

It’s not just a sign that he wants you, it also means that he respects your time and appreciates you as a person.

He is honest with you

man looking at glass of beerA guy that shows signs he wants you badly will be honest with you.

He is not one of those guys who play mind games with you to get what they want in a dishonest way.

No, he really cares too much to jeopardize his potential relationship with you by trying to manipulate you. He will be honest with you from the very first date.

He opens up to you

Another one of the signs he wants you bad is if he isn’t ashamed to open up to you about his past.

We all have one and we all have skeletons in our closets. The one who says he’s an open book and has nothing to hide—lies.

But, if you see that there is something he is not telling you, something significant, then you should be careful. Who knows what he’s hiding and what his intentions are?

He’s protective

back view of man sitting in park whileIf he’s protective of you, it means that he wants you to be and feel safe. That brings us to a conclusion that you aren’t just a regular hookup for him but that he really cares for you.

And I’m not talking about those overly-protective and possessive kinds of guys. No, that’s not a sign of true love. It’s actually a deeply unhealthy behavior that is destructive for a relationship.

I’m talking about the kind of guys who want you to know that you can count on them under any circumstances.

The one that doesn’t think you’re weak or incapable of protecting yourself. The one who just wants you to know that you have someone to help you deal with things that are bigger and stronger than you are.

He can’t stop looking at you

It’s possible that you catch him staring or you see him glancing at you, trying to catch your attention.

And if you catch him looking at you, he’ll lock his eyes on yours and won’t look away for a while. It’s a telltale sign he wants you bad, sexually.

You have to be careful though because there is always the other side of the story.

He may look at you every now and then, but if he looks away when you return the glance, he is not interested in you and probably sees you just as a friend.

You simply feel the energy between you

smiling couple looking at each other while sitting on tableWhen the sparks are flying between two people, that sexual tension between them is visible to everyone around them.

That’s why it shouldn’t be too difficult to figure out if he really wants you badly, because if it’s the case, you’ll be able to feel that chemistry between you.

I can’t really help you out with this one because it’s not something that can be explained in simple words. You must experience or feel it yourself in order to understand what I am talking about.

He gets jealous

Especially if he didn’t let you know he wants you. He will be scared of losing you although he hasn’t yet made a move.

He doesn’t know if you like him back and when he sees you talking to other guys, he’ll feel neglected and scared that you might like the other one instead of him.

But then again, there is a thin line between cute jealousy and a possessive one.

Never let anyone try to take control over your life and nag about things that are not his business.

If you’re meeting your guy friend for a drink, he has no business meddling or asking questions about him.

He extinguishes all of his old flames

smiling couple looking at each other at cafeThe first thing a guy who wants you bad will do is to delete all of the dating apps he used to meet girls before he met you.

So, if your guy deletes his profiles on Tinder, Hinge, Bumble and other similar apps, you can be sure that he’s really into you.

If he’s still in touch with his ex, or even worse, if he still chats with different girls online, it’s a pretty clear red flag that he’s a player who doesn’t care for you. And it’s definitely not the guy you deserve in the first place.

You met his friends and family

A guy will never do this unless he is one hundred percent sure that you are the right girl for him.

You’ve probably even met his mom already. You know, guys won’t put up with questions from their family and friends about you for nothing.

Like who you are? Does he like you? Are you in a relationship? So, if he has taken this step, it means that he really likes you.

He left a good impression on your loved ones

jealous man looking at man and woman o dance floorIf a guy tries really hard to leave a good impression on your family and friends, it’s a good sign that he wants you.

He knows how important they are to you and whatever is important to you, it’s equally important to him. Besides, he knows that you’ll like him more if he manages to win them over.

He’s okay with taking things slow

When a guy doesn’t want to respect your wish to take things slowly, it’s a red flag that he only wants to hook up with you and nothing else.

On the contrary, if he shows understanding and respect for your wish, it’s a clear sign that this guy wants to build a serious relationship with you.

Even though he wants you badly, he’ll know how to battle those temptations in order to show how much he cares for you. He knows how important it is to build a deeper emotional and intimate bond before you take that step in your relationship.

He behaves likes a true gentleman

serious couple standing outsideSometimes it really seems like manners and etiquette are starting to fade away in our modern society. Chivalry is evolving like everything else, but it just seems that guys don’t even try to keep up with it.

However, love always turns them into real gentlemen. When a guy starts falling in love with a woman, all that he wants is to treat his lady the way she deserves. To become the king his queen deserves.

So, if your guy is behaving like a true cavalier in every sense of that word, then it’s a pretty good sign he is into you more than you think.

In A Nutshell

You don’t have to google your zodiac signs compatibility in order to see if your man is really into you. This list of the signs he wants you bad will surely help you solve that dilemma.

And remember, if he isn’t that much into you, then he’s simply not the one. On the other hand, if the answer is yes, if he truly likes you, don’t be afraid to make the first move.

Give him a small hint that you feel the same about him and let it be the beginning of a beautiful love story. The one with a happy ending, of course. Or, even better, the one without an ending…

But, the bottom line is that when someone has the hots for you and is truly, madly, deeply in love with you, you’ll be able to see it and feel it. You’ll just know.

These signs can help you in making a definite decision, but at the bottom of your heart, you’ll know for sure if he is the real man for you.23 Signs He Wants You Bad (And What Does It Actually Mean)
