If you’re a guy reading this, you probably think women are highly complex, indecisive, and crazy. We’re not going to argue; however, we think of men in the same way. So, check yourself before you wreck yourself, fellas. You just need to know the signs and the little things that matter when it comes to knowing how to tell if a woman likes you.
How to tell if a woman likes you – The little signs most guys ignore
But for reals, we’re not that complicated. The thing is, guys aren’t looking at the right things or you’re not paying attention, period. Some guys zone out in front of a woman, so, don’t act all innocent now.
Now, because you guys weren’t paying attention, there’s a good chance you haven’t figured out how to tell if a woman likes you. But don’t worry, you can still piece it together using the signs below.
1. Eye contact
Women decide carefully who they share intense eye contact with. We don’t want to get a creeper, so before we dish out the ‘come love me’ gaze, we choose wisely.
If you get the gaze, you have been chosen. Accept your fate.
2. She asks personal questions
We’re trying to figure out if you suit us, so that’s why we ask a lot of questions. What do you do for work, what did you study in school, where are you from?
We’re trying to put all the pieces together and see who you are. And trust us, women wouldn’t do that if they weren’t interested.
3. She lets you into her personal space
Again, we’re not interested in creepers, so if you’ve made it into our personal space without forcing your way in, it’s because we let you.
If you forced your way in, well, security is probably on its way as we speak. So, run. We want you close, that’s right, walk into our web.
4. Has she randomly run into you?
A lot of women are expert creepers. Just give them his social media accounts, and they’ll figure out where he is. It’s a gift, really.
So, if she ‘pops up’ unknowingly at the same place you’re at after you tweeted… well, that’s not a coincidence.
5. She touches you
Women really aren’t into creeps – trust us. So, we ain’t touching you with a ten-foot pole if we aren’t interested.
So, if she’s all over you or even just subtly touching your arm, that’s a good sign she’s comfortable around you. Of course, being touched is always a good thing, right?
6. She starts the conversation
Women usually expect men to start the conversations. It’s stupid. It’s too bad that you guys are dumped with all the work.
However, if she’s the one popping up with conversations, she obviously finds you interesting enough to chat with you.
7. She’s happy around you
The girl smiles even when you’re just standing beside her. She’s loving it. She’s loving your aura, your energy, and being around you.
Is there a better reason to smile? Exactly. So, if you’re wondering how to tell if a woman likes you, remember that smiling is a good thing.
8. All about the laughs
If she’s pulling out the deep laughs, keep it coming. You’re funny, and she likes it. If you’re making her laugh, that’s a great sign she digs you. We don’t like to provoke men we aren’t interested in, so if it’s just crickets after your jokes… move on.
9. Spends her time with you
No girl wastes time with a guy she’s not interested in. Unless it’s her best guy friends or brother. Other than that, anything else is time wasted. We don’t hang out with guys we are ‘whatever’ about. Come on, you guys are no different.
10. The hair flip
Ah, yes. The classic hair flip. Though there is a fine line between girls who are constantly touching their hair and girls who do the hair flip. They do it ever so subtly, just so you can take a glimpse of their neck.
11. Downplays other guys
She wants you to know that there are other guys interested in her. But she doesn’t want you to think she finds them interesting.
So, she may not even bring up other guys, and if she does, she does it to see your reaction.
12. You’ve met her friends
This is the major test: the friends. And this is not just you going for drinks, this is you being analyzed head to toe, every word that comes out of your mouth will be discussed.
This is the ‘yea’ or ‘nay’ moment. If she takes you to meet her friends, it’s because she really likes you and wants to show you off to her friends.
13. Memory like an elephant
Did she remember that when you were a kid you loved to collect action figures? Of course, she did and that’s why she bought you this collector’s item.
See, it’s all in the details. People who care remember small things. Why? Because they pay attention.
14. She gives you the details
No one wants to open up to another person, it’s scary. So, when someone does, it means they trust you and want that emotional bond with you. So, if she’s opening herself up to you, it means she trusts you.
15. Social media is buzzing
She ‘likes’ your Instagram photos and your Facebook posts. You probably didn’t think social media was a big deal; however, it really is.
If a guy that a girl likes doesn’t like her Facebook posts after an awkward first date, she knows it’s probably over. So, if she’s liking everything you post, it’s a big deal.
16. Tries to make you jealous
She mentions other guys or flirts with other guys in front of you, just to see what your reaction is.
You’re probably thinking, ‘ouch’ but you guys do it too, We’ve seen it! You just need to act cool and then flirt with her a little to show that you’re interested.
17. Puts a little more effort into her look
Wondering how to tell if a woman likes you, the very minute you meet her? If you’ve noticed her wearing more makeup or styling her hair when you go out, well, she’s interested.
Do you think they’d put in extra effort if you were just a friend? Ha! You fool.
18. She teases you
Teasing is flirting. But you already know this. You’ve probably done this to the women you’re interested in. So, of course, women use the same tactics. She’ll playfully tease you to create some sexual tension.
19. She suggests doing things together
If she’s the one saying, “Oh, we should totally see that movie,’ it’s because she wants to hang out with you. Don’t be so blind, it’s so obvious and in your face. Because why would she want to hang out with you if she wasn’t interested?
20. She gets angry over small things
Yeah, because she cannot hold in her feelings for you and she’s pissed that you’re not the one bringing up where you stand.
21. She ignores you
Okay, this one might sound counterintuitive. Why would she ignore you if she likes you? Well, if she’s the shy, nervous, or quiet type, that might be her way of dealing with it.
She’s so nervous around you that it’s easier for her to avoid you because she doesn’t want to get rejected. Plus, she doesn’t know how to start a conversation with you.
22. Your friends point it out
If you’re out with a group of people, and your friends notice that she’s paying a lot of attention to you, that’s a great way to tell if a woman likes you.
Your friends notice that she has eye contact, close body language and that she’s smiling and flipping her hair around you. If it’s obvious to other people, then it’s most likely true.
23. Her family and friends know about you
Maybe you have met them already, which is a great sign. But even if you haven’t, you might catch her talking on the phone with one of them and mention that she’s with you – and she doesn’t have to explain who you are.
Or, she’ll say something like, “My mom thought it would be fun for you and me to go to this festival this weekend.”
24. She drops other plans to hang out with you
If she has a busy life but somehow always seems to make time to see you, it’s probably because she prioritizes you over other things in her life.
She might reschedule or break plans to hang out with other people. That’s because she’s eager to see you whenever she can, and she doesn’t want to miss even one opportunity.
25. She compliments you a lot
If she’s always telling you how she likes your shirt, shoes, eyes, or your big muscles, then she’s telling you that she likes you.
When someone compliments other people to a bit of an extreme, it’s because she wants you to notice that she notices you.
26. She’ll always tell you her schedule
You don’t even have to ask her what she’s doing on the weekend because she’s already told you. The reason she does this is to let you know when she has free time.
She might say something like, “I’m so bummed that I don’t have any plans this Saturday night!” If she does, it’s because she wants you to ask her out.
27. She does nice things for you
She might spontaneously one day bring you cookies she just baked or give you a cute little gift. When she does stuff like this, it’s because she’s thinking about you so much that she goes out of her way to do nice things for you. If she didn’t like you, she wouldn’t bother.
28. No mixed signals
She won’t give out any mixed signals if she likes you. In other words, her behavior will be consistent.
She won’t be hot one day and cold the next. She will always have actions that scream “I’m interested!” So, if you’re confused about if she likes you, then maybe she doesn’t.
29. She asks about your dating life
If you don’t know her very well, she’ll start out by asking you if you have a girlfriend. And if you do, she’ll ask all about your relationship.
If you’re single, she will probably ask if you go out on a lot of dates or what you’re looking for in a girl. She’s fishing around to know your relationship status.
30. Uses the “we” word
You might find her saying things like, “We should totally go see that movie together!” or “We should try that new restaurant that just opened.” Using the word “we” implies that she sees the two of you as a unit – at least in her mind.
31. Makes future plans
When she talks about the future, she includes you in it. Just like with the examples above, she might say, “That concert we wanted to see is coming to town in six months. We should go!”
That’s because she sees herself still hanging out with you down the road, and she wants to let you know that.
32. Puts away her phone
When she’s with you, she is not on her phone. She has it put away in her purse or maybe even in her car or another room. That’s because she wants to give you her undivided attention.
She wants to send the message to you that no one else can compete for her time at the moment.
