If you have a special man in your life, he's probably always on your mind. So it’s totally reasonable to wonder if he is thinking about you. The good news is that you don’t need to guess! Luckily, there are many ways to know whether he is thinking of you.
To make it easier for you, I have compiled some signs and signals that will reveal whether he is thinking about you or not.
HE'S GENUINELY HAPPY EVERY TIME HE SEES YOU
It's not that hard to pick a man in love out of the crowd. All you need to spot is this look of ease and happiness whenever he is around his partner. So if he lights up like a Christmas tree around you, it's probably because he thinks about you and cares a lot about you, as well. He's also probably on his way to falling deeply in love with you if he isn't already.
If he feels excited and all-around good in your presence, he also thinks about you a lot. His thoughts will probably be mostly about how much he likes you, how good he feels around you, and when you can see him again- the sooner, the better.
HE LETS YOU KNOW HE'S BEEN THINKING ABOUT YOU
Even when a guy says he is thinking of you, it's pretty hard to believe without proof. Sometimes, guys say this and then disappear for days on end. They probably think their disappearance will make us miss them and such.
It's actually the opposite. To us, talk is cheap. This is why we look at the context and his actions before we even think about believing him. It would be best if you did the same. Don't take anything at face value. If he says he thinks about you, check out all the preceding numbers in this article. If he acts as he thinks about you a lot, then you should only believe him.
HE VALUES YOUR OPINION
While some guys like to make decisions without consulting anyone else, he would be thinking of you and of what you think before he makes a decision. He doesn't think about you after the fact. Instead, he thinks of you before he decides. He even asks you for your input and opinion.
If he trusts and values your opinion a lot, he probably thinks of you as a partner. He believes you to be someone capable, strong, and wise. He relies on your opinion and waits for it, even if he has all the time in the world to decide on his own.

HE'S REMINDED OF YOU EVERYWHERE HE LOOKS
You are definitely on his mind if everywhere he turns and every single time he does something, he's reminded of you. He even thought of you when he walked into his bedroom and found his lost pair of socks under the bed, which you helped him look for yesterday.
He will probably take a picture of the stray sock and send it to you with the caption: "I have recovered the kidnapped sock without paying the ransom; am I cool or what?"
He could also send you memes, funny posts, and tweets that he thinks you'd enjoy. If he knows you're into conspiracy theories, he's probably reading about some new ones on Reddit so he can send some to you.
HE REMEMBERS SPECIFIC THINGS ABOUT YOU
One of the biggest tells about someone's feelings is if they can recall a lot of details about you that even you can hardly remember. So if he remembers how much you hate hotdogs based on a conversation you had three years ago, it's fair to say that he's thinking about you a lot.
He probably also recalls how you got your fear of heights, the name of your first-grade teacher, your favorite color, your biggest fashion risk, and how you like your coffee. He's not one to pass on the details. This is because whenever we like someone, our curiosity is always picked whenever they tell us something about them.
Even the most boring details can become extremely interesting, if it's about them, or if they are telling the story. This means that every time you tell your boyfriend something about you, he files the information away for future use.
HE'S A FOLLOWER
If he follows you on all your social media platforms and consistently likes, hearts, comments, and shares your posts, it is safe to assume that he really likes you a lot.
He will probably balk at commenting on all your posts if he's a shy guy. But he is still updated. He pays attention to your social media activity. You will know this because he will most likely mention something or other about your recent post in your conversation.
He'll probably act all casual about it and say: "So, you've been to the keto store I told you about," or "I love how you travel a lot."

HE MAKES YOU HAPPY
When a man likes a woman, he will always want her to be happy. If he goes out of his way to get you to smile or laugh, or even just to make your eyes sparkle and crinkle in the corners, then it's a sure sign that he's a goner. He probably thinks about you all the time- about how he can make your day better, more specifically.
If you're having a hard day, for example, he will definitely want to make you feel better by buying you your favorite Hulk-flavored Ben & Jerry's ice cream. He knows you love it when you agree with Wong in the Endgame movie.
HE'S INTERESTED IN EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU
He probably asks you a lot of questions. Of course, he'll also be mindful of your moods and such. Generally, though, his curiosity will get the better of him. If he can't ask you directly, he will probably ask around about why you seemed out of sorts earlier in the day.
If he can't get the answers he's looking for, he will most likely stalk your social media accounts in the hopes that you will post something more illuminating. His interest is unquenchable. He genuinely can't get enough. He's probably going to toss and turn all night thinking about you.
HE SHARES THINGS ABOUT HIMSELF WITH YOU
Even though he seems like the toughest person on the planet, he will seem like the most open and vulnerable with you. This means that he trusts you and feels secure around you enough to open up. He will probably let you see the real him, not the persona he shows other people.
We all have this thing that's called a shadow self. This is the person behind our daily mask that we hardly ever show to anyone else. If he's someone who shows you his shadow self, then it's more than likely he's already in love with you and thinks about you all the time.
YOU SHARE INSIDE JOKES
Sharing inside jokes is one of the many signs of deeper intimacy. If you've progressed to having cute and silly nicknames for each other or to teasing each other mercilessly about your past adventures and experiences, then you're closer than you care to admit.
He probably thinks about you a lot for you guys to have come this far. Otherwise, he wouldn't bother spending all that time talking and flirting with you if he didn't feel something very strongly for you or you for him.
HE DESIRES YOUR TOUCH
Whenever you're with him, you've probably noticed how he bumps into you accidentally (a lot), or touches your hands, wrists, shoulders, the back of your neck, your cheeks, your hair, etc. In short, he wouldn't be able to keep his hands off of you.
This is because men are physical beings. If they like you, they're going to be thinking about touching you a lot. They will crave the feel of your skin. They will also probably take every opportunity available to them to get closer to you- close enough to touch you.
HE SEES NO ONE ELSE BUT YOU
You've probably noticed that he's intensely focused on you whenever you're together. This is most likely one of the reasons why you like to be around him. He makes you feel important and valued. This is because you are the focus in his world.
He wouldn't ever edge his way out of a conversation or perhaps cut things short with you. Whenever you're together, you have his full attention. Everything else just falls away or somehow becomes less important.
HE THINKS YOU'RE A COMEDIC GENIUS
Whenever we get to be around someone we really like, our brain secretes happy hormones that make us almost giddy. This means that every time you make a joke, he will most likely chuckle, chortle, or laugh himself into the next day in hysterics.
This isn't something he can help. Being around you will probably make him feel very light and free. This will make him view the world in a funny way, and even when you're not being funny, he will probably laugh just because he feels good that he's with you.
HE'S INTERESTED IN YOUR INTERESTS
You've probably wondered about how you guys like the same music, movies, bands, TV series, Netflix shows, books, etc. This is because he wants to be closer to you. One of the ways he can do that is by liking all the things that you like. He will immerse himself into your world and know more about you that way.
He will do this even with your hobbies and the people that you like. He probably feels that he doesn't know you enough, still. He thinks he can get a lot closer to you if he understands why you like all these things and people.
HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS KNOW YOU EXIST
If his family and friends already know exactly who you are, and even several other information about you, it means he is thinking about you. He even talked about you to his family and closest friends. This implies that he is extremely proud of you and that he wants to brag about you to everyone he knows.
Being on his mind can become a lot after a while, though. The people around him are probably tired of hearing about how you were spelling bee champion for three years running in high school or about how you won a singing contest when you were in middle school.
HE'S CRAZY ABOUT YOU
If he did all those other things, that means he's crazy about you. He doesn't just think about you- he's gone a few steps up. As we know, guys aren't the most proactive people on the planet. When they initiate affection, they don't do it halfway.
This is him going all the way in love and love with you. He can't get enough of you, and he thinks you're the best thing that has happened ever since the discovery of penicillin and the invention of the coffee maker.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF SOMEONE IS THINKING ABOUT YOU?
You will know if someone's thinking about you if he's told everyone all about you, is reminded of you often everywhere he turns, is genuinely happy to see you, remembers details about you, follows you on social media, wants to be close to you all the time, etc. If he does all these and more, chances are, he's not just thinking about you- he also likes you a lot!
IS IT TRUE THAT WHEN YOU CAN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT SOMEONE, THEY ARE THINKING ABOUT YOU, TOO?
The law of attraction does support this theory, but it doesn't work all the time. You have to do a lot of things first before you can manifest a boyfriend. You have to prepare yourself and make sure that you're not sending any negative feelings out into the world. Once you're able to use the law of attraction to your benefit, only then can I answer this question with a yes.
DOES HE THINK ABOUT ME DURING NO CONTACT?
It depends. If you're in 'no contact' because he wants some space, chances are he is thinking about you. He's probably trying to figure out how to solve whatever issue you have in your relationship. It's either that or he's thinking about how to let you down gently.
WHEN YOU FEEL A CONNECTION WITH SOMEONE, DO THEY FEEL IT, TOO?
Most likely, yes. A connection implies something that links the two of you together. If you felt it, it is highly probable that they felt it too. If you can't tell by their reaction, you should be able to figure it out based on their facial expressions and overall body language. Failing that, you can always ask them.
HOW CAN YOU TELL IF A GUY MISSES YOU?
You can tell that a guy misses you by the frequency of his calls. You've probably noticed how many times he's called you in the past hour or the increasing desperation he exhibits in making you stay on the line. Or perhaps he's texted you a few times, even though he's not a texter. Either way, you will be able to tell by noticing his aberrant behavior. If he appears to be doing stuff he normally doesn't do just to get your attention, it means that he missed you.
