50 Signs A Girl Likes You That You May Not Notice

If there’s a woman in your life who you think might be attracted to you but hasn’t said so explicitly, it can be frustrating and confusing. You don’t want to make a move in case you end up getting rejected (the worst!) but you also don’t want to miss out on a potentially amazing relationship if there is something there. It’s time to stop the guesswork. Here are 50 signs a girl likes you that should leave little doubt in your mind as to where you stand.

  1. She’s extra supportive. She is your ultimate cheerleader and always has words of encouragement if you’re feeling unsure of yourself.
  2. Her friends and family know about you. While you may not know if she likes you, her friends and family are very aware of her feelings.
  3. She laughs at all your jokes. No matter how lame, she finds all your jokes hilarious. This is a telltale sign that she’s into you.
  4. She likes all your social media posts. She’s the first to “like” and comment because she’s always keeping tabs on what you post.
  5. She makes excuses to message you. She sends you random memes or questions just to keep the conversation going.
  6. She smiles when you’re around. Being near you lifts her mood. Even if she isn’t aware of it, your presence makes her smile more than usual.
  7. She sends lots of emojis. She has lots of feelings for you but can’t quite put them into words yet and isn’t ready to reveal them openly even if she could. She uses emojis to illustrate how she feels instead.
  8. She’s shy for the first few minutes of talking. It takes her a little while to relax around you. She’s been thinking about you since you last saw each other which heightens her nervousness.

  12. She shows her silly side. The more comfortable she gets, the more she lets her guard down and shows you the real her.
  13. She always wants to have a plan for next time. She doesn’t want to leave a meeting with you without knowing when you’ll see each other again.
  14. She’s awkward when you’re alone together. If you’re used to seeing each other around other people, she gets awkward when you’re alone. Her attraction to you is so strong that she’s afraid she won’t be able to hide it.
  15. You feel happy around her. Feeling content and upbeat around her is a sign that the two of you have good energy together. You subconsciously feel her excitement about being near you.

  26. You always make eye contact from across the room. Even when you’re in a crowded place, your eyes find each other.

  32. She makes sure you know she’s single. She goes out of her way to drop hints that she isn’t spoken for…yet.
  33. She looks away when you look at her. She tries to avoid eye contact because she knows her feelings will be obvious if you look at each other.
  34. She gets awkward when you talk about sex and relationships. When the conversation turns to intimacy, she becomes embarrassed. She can’t help but imagine you when thinking about sex.
  35. She tries to make you jealous. Sometimes she’ll drop hints about other guys who find her attractive, hoping this will give you an incentive to make a move quickly.

  40. She’s curious about your family. She wants to get inside knowledge about you and asks about your family to feel a deeper connection with you.
  41. She blushes. You may not notice that she’s blushing if you’re feeling nervous too, but pay attention when you compliment her or she reveals something personal.
  42. She gets physically close. When people are attracted to each other, they gravitate towards being in each other’s personal spaces even if they haven’t broken the touch barrier yet.
  43. She tries to impress you. She doesn’t openly brag, but she likes telling you things about herself that will make you admire her.

  48. She compliments you. Whether she wants to hide her attraction to you or not, she can’t help but point out all the things she likes about you.
  49. She touches her neck. When people touch their necks, it’s a sign that they are trying to soothe themselves. Unless she intensely dislikes you, touching her neck is a sign that she’s nervous in a good way.
  50. All of these signs are consistent. These signs only indicate that she’s interested if they constitute a pattern. Otherwise, they may simply be a coincidence that you’re trying to turn into evidence of a romance.
