Use the search function for this one. It takes too long to explain and needs too many photos (which have been posted ad nauseam). Just search for 'sex' or 'sexing' in the tarantula forum and you'll soon know everything we do.

Adult males are easy to spot because they have blunt pedipalps and some species have hooks on their legs.
Here's an adult G. rosea male

You can also try to look at the underside of the T.
Here are the molts of my two immature T. blondis.
