How to know if he likes you

Okay I know I could just ask but I’m too much of a little bi*ch to do so.

I’ve fell for this guy and when we go out he holds my hand, pays for things and I’m not use to getting treated like that (go me for getting out of a manipulative relationship)

I’ve fell for this guy hard and I want to take things further but I don’t know how because I’m new to all this
