One of the best and often most convenient places to meet a match is work. After all, it’s where you spend a big part of your time. Can you think of a co-worker you’d like to go on a date with, but are unsure if he’s into you? Are you looking for signs a coworker likes you or do you wonder how to tell if a coworker likes you?
Follow this guide, and it will give you a pretty good clue whether he’s into you or not.
He times His Breaks with Yours
How to tell if a coworker likes you? He observes You!
He asks You to after-work Events
Your male Co-worker likes You if He defends You
He tries to interact with You as often as possible
He contacts you outside the Work space
Your Co-worker likes You if He wants to commute Home together
Watch out for these signs and you might find out that your co-worker is into you.
1. He times His Breaks with Yours
If you notice him taking his breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks at the exact same time as yours, then chances are he’s trying to get some down time with you. And even more so if he tries to chat with you during each of those breaks or whenever time allows!
Chances are the run-ins aren’t by accident. He’s making an effort to spend time with you at work, maybe he already sees his work-crush in you!
2. How to tell if a coworker likes you? He observes You!
Not in a creepy way, but do you catch him looking at you often and with a smile? That is one of the very strong signs a male coworker likes you and is having a crush on you!
Also, does he always say hello and ask about your day? It’s usually a sign that he’s interested enough to find out more. If the interest is mutual, smile back and start a new conversation next time you catch him looking at you. Pay attention to his eyes too: they do a lot of the flirting!

3. He asks You to after-work Events
In case he’s a little shy, he might not ask you out right away, but could ask you to join the “gang” after work for happy hour or dinner. If he does, then he’s aiming for a one-on-one date with you, but wants to calculate his chances first by asking you out within the group.
Sometimes that makes him feel more comfortable and reduces the chances of a major letdown. If you say no, then he didn’t take that much of a risk to begin with, since he didn’t ask you out privately. Things could potentially become awkward between you afterwards, so he likes to play it safe first.
4. Your male Co-worker likes You if He defends You
This is important to differentiate from the friend zone. A good friend would also defend you at work, but if he’s interested romantically, then he’ll be more direct and most likely compliment you during the process, if someone says something negative about or to you.
He wouldn’t ignore it, but stand up for you and let you know that he thinks highly of you and that he cares about you, no matter what. In this case, he is actually trying to get out of the friend zone with you. Yet, note that him defending you is one of the more subtle signs a coworker likes you, so pay close attention to it.
5. He tries to interact with You as often as possible
A guy doesn’t waste his time on someone he’s not interested in, so if he’s talking a lot to you, asks for your advice, or takes advantage of finding you in a talkative position at work, then he’s flirting, and you know it!
He could easily ignore you or only make it about work, but if he asks about your dating life or mentions other personal topics, he’s trying to warm up and get to know you better. If he goes out of his way, even when it’s not a break, to come up to you to talk, or even brings you snacks or coffee, your coworker is having a little crush, guaranteed!
6. He contacts you outside the Work space
If you are already friends and on good terms, he might text or call you after working hours. If he does, then check if you’re possibly more than just a friend to him! It’s usually a sign that he’s trying to start something if he takes time out of his day to get in touch with you, even after you’ve spent all day at work together.
Does he ask you out for a movie or to grab a bite together? Sounds like a date to me! Or, if things are fresh and you have just recently met at work, he might ask for your number, or give you his at the first chance. Then ask yourself: do you have all your co-workers phone numbers? Probably not!
7. Your Co-worker likes You if He wants to commute Home together
As long as you give him the o.k., he might want to partially commute home with you, even if that means taking a detour. If he enjoys your company, he will want to spend extra time with you, cue: riding the metro or bus home together, or offering you a ride, if applicable.
