Are you hoping a special girl likes you, but don’t know how to tell if she is really interested in you? Are you looking for hints to tell you what she’s thinking? What does it mean when she keeps touching her hair? This article provides 8 things to look for to help you decide if a girl likes you.
1. She Doesn’t Like You Flirting With Other Girls
A girl who likes you will be uncomfortable if you flirt with other girls. Nobody likes competition. She might react openly, or may just slip away so she doesn’t have to watch you giving another girl attention.
Be warned before you flirt with other girls that it might backfire. If you seem to fancy yourself as a ladies’ man, she might lose interest in you. How can she trust a boyfriend who is quick to flirt with other girls?
2. She Hugs You
Does she hug you at every opportunity? We only hug people we like. Hugging you could be an excuse to get closer to you and experience the feel of your body.
Perhaps she likes you but can’t tell you with words. It may be easier for her to use other strategies like hugging you and making herself very close to you.
Hugs come in different forms. Some girls just wrap themselves around boys they like. It can be a welcoming hug when you cross paths in the street or at the mall. But other girls are more likely to wrap a soothing arm around your shoulder. For instance, if you are seated and struggling with a problem on your computer. She may lean over and give you a shoulder hug, reassuring you that you can solve the problem.
3. She Finds Ways or Excuses to Touch You
She will always find many excuses to touch you or feel your body. Does she touch you when she is sitting next to you? That’s a clear hint she’s attracted to you. She wants to come closer to you and there is no better way or method for her than touching you on the arms or the hair.
She may pretend to remove an imaginary thing from your arm or hair. Perhaps she brushes crumbs from your chest.
Some girls give light-hearted slaps. Others grab your arm with excitement. If she’s touching you, she likes you.
4. Her Friends Give Clues That She Likes You
Her best friends will know if she likes you. Look to them for clues. What do her friends do when you are around? How does she react with her friends?
• Do her friends glance at you as you approach?
• Do they smile when you approach them?
• Are her friends seeming to tease her?
• Does she look cross, as though she’s afraid one of them might tell you she likes you?
• Have any of her friends asked you if you like her?
Best friends can give lots of subtle clues she likes you.
5. She Likes to Talk to You
Start a conversation with her. If she is happy to chat with you, that’s a good sign. Some couples just click from the time they start talking and can talk for hours.
If she’s nervous, she might have trouble speaking up. Give her a chance to become comfortable with you. Ask her questions and wait for her to answer. She might need some time to collect her thoughts.
The danger signs are if she looks bored or simply answers your questions with a shrug. Or, even worse, if she grabs hold of a passing friend and allows herself to be dragged away.
6. She Laughs at What You Say
If a girl likes you, she’ll laugh in all the right places.
• Hopefully she genuinely finds you amusing and isn’t just working hard to encourage you. But even if she is trying a little too hard, that’s okay. She obviously believes you are worth the effort.
• Some girls get the giggles when they are nervous.
But here’s the kind of laughter you definitely want to look for . . .
• The full belly laugh you both share.
You know the kind. You’re both laughing so hard you are almost crying. You feel as though you’re about to split in half. The two of you share moments that are simply irresistibly funny.
Others around you think you’re both crazy, but the hearty chuckles make perfectly good sense to the two of you.
7. Something Interesting Happens When Your Eyes Meet
A girl who likes you may shy away from looking at you directly. If your gaze meets, she blinks and turns her eyes away. She is not comfortable being caught looking at you. This kind of girl won’t want to be seen as ‘chasing’ you. She waits for you to make the first move and approach her.
But some women speak through their eyes. Lucky you if your gaze connects with a woman whose eyes sparkle and invite you to come and say hello. A confident girl will directly hold your attention for longer than you’d expect before looking away.
If you’re making extended eye contact with a woman, that is definitely a positive signal.
8. She Notices You
A girl who really likes you will at least acknowledge that you exist. Even if she’s extremely shy, she’ll find a way to let you know that she knows you’re there.
If a girl completely ignores you, she has no interest in you. But is she really ignoring you, or is she sending you a quiet message that’s she’s noticed you but doesn’t know how to react?
Here’s some examples of how a girl who likes you might behave if she’s really shy:
• She’s with a group who engage you in conversation, but she stays quiet.
• She nods, or smiles. Just quickly, but it is a definite nod or smile in your direction.
• There’s a sudden interruption (or end) to her activity as soon as she sees you. Perhaps she stops singing, or dancing, or talking.
Yes, she’s noticed you. She’s definitely not ignoring you, or she’d just carry on whatever she was doing without missing a beat.
