You never know; you may find that he feels the same about you, and is he is shy to tell you because he is afraid you will turn him down. Men are also shy and fear being rejected by the ladies they like.
So, how do you tell a guy that you like him?
If you have a crush that you are dying to express your feelings to, here is a guide on how to tell him that you like him.

Meaning, the both of you love the same thing or have the same values in life and activities in general. People develop more closeness and interest to each other if they have the same things in common as most of the time you will enjoy each other's company doing what the two of you enjoy doing.
