5 Honest Ways to Respond When a Guy Says He Likes You & Not Hurt Him.

Humans like to have their egos stroked. When someone tells you that they like you and admire you, it’s a huge ego boost, for sure. The thing is, if a guy tells you they like you, you must understand how hard that might have been for them. With that in mind, you need to know how to best respond when a guy says he likes you.

1. Do not put him down or laugh in his face

When you hear something that takes you by surprise, especially something deeply flattering, it’s easy for your reaction to just come out without any control.

You might laugh because you’re embarrassed, but try and rein this in. Can you imagine how mortified he might be? Learning how to respond when a guy says he likes you does not involve laughing or raising eyebrows!

4. Take your time to respond to his texts

When someone likes a person, they are eager to communicate with them. Because of this, they always respond to their texts promptly.

So, if you don’t want to give him the impression that you like him back, then take your time to respond to his texts. Eventually, he will notice and get the hint

5. Talk about other guys

Now, you don’t have to be too obvious and make him feel inadequate. You don’t want to point out hot guys and tell him how much you want to do them.

Instead, you can talk about how much you love John’s sense of humor or how Jim is just so smart. When he sees that you are admiring other guys, he might notice that you’re not completely
