by | Love, Meeting People, Moving On

Dec 3, 2022

Wondering if your male coworker is in the mood for a bit of romance? We’ve decoded all the signs that a male coworker likes you, from the way he’ll want to be your hero to his body language. If you’re looking for hints that your male colleague has a crush on you, then read on—after you check out these signs, you’ll know precisely what’s on his mind!

1. He Wants to Be a Hero

By being a hero, we mean he wants to undertake most of your tasks. 

Express any difficulty, and he is already offering to help. This is a big sign that your male coworker likes you. 

2. He Tries to Boss You Around

A coworker who makes himself your ‘boss’ most likely has a crush on you.

He tries to control you and how your work is. 

A lot similar to a female coworker antagonizing you, but different in that this one antagonizes you so that he can help. 

Helping means he has to spend some more time around you, and that is exactly what he wants.

3. Jealousy? Green Flag

Men are essentially jealous people when they are around people they feel attracted to. When your male coworker starts to show jealousy, especially over another male coworker, when he asks what is up with you both, then that’s a big green flag that he is into you and wants to date you. 

If you doubt that his display is jealousy, how about you try to make him jealous and see how it turns out? 

4. He Compliments You

Women may seek compliments, but men would most times want to be the ones who give them. If your coworker compliments you a lot, then it is a sign that he’s attracted to you sexually, especially if his compliments are precise. 

Something like: “I loved that dark pink dress you wore earlier.”

If he asks about a particular dress and suggests that you wear it more often, it is an indicator that he is sexually attracted to you. 

5. He Wants to Be Part of Your Social Media

One morning, you are scrolling through Facebook, and boom, there is a friend request from your coworker. 

He wants to connect with you, and not just on Facebook. He wants you on all his social media. Facebook. Twitter. Instagram. Everywhere. 

Big green flag. He has sent those requests because he is thinking about you a lot.

6. He Dresses Prime and Proper

When a male coworker into you, you should be able to notice a change in his dress and probably his physique. 

He is going to dress a lot more properly and may even start hitting the gym. All these he does so you can notice him and, most likely, be attracted to him as well. 

7. He Tries to Make You Jealous

There are times when men play the jealousy card too. 

The jealousy card looks something like this: your coworker, sensing resistance from you, takes his attention from you and begins to display attachment towards other coworkers. 

He does this in an obvious way so you notice it. If you notice this, then it is an indication that he likes you.

8. His Body Language

If your coworker likes you, his body language will sell him out

  • He’ll want to have contact with you at any opportunity. 
  • He will hug you. 
  • He will hold your hands. 
  • He will smile at you for no reason
  • He wants to go home at the same time as you
  • He throws flirting glances from across the office every now and then
  • He offers to make coffee for you

Anything just to make sure his hands are on yours and to get your attention. 

Asides from that, your colleague will display some possessive body language, like walking confidently, etc. 

9. He is the First to Notice Something is Wrong

When you walk into the office with a gloomy face, he is the first to notice and asks what is wrong. 

It is as though he notices everything and wants to find out what. He is sensitive, in a nutshell. He likes you, and he is sexually attracted to you. 

10. He Wants to Hang Out

When a coworker is sexually attracted to you, he is going to try to hang out with you a lot. 

To hang out, he is going to have to talk. 

So, he is going to talk to you a lot, and then he is going to try to hang out with you more. 


He will set dates and invite you over. He may even want you to come to know where his house is.
