When it comes to love, people do many things to try and hide their feelings. Maybe they’re scared of getting hurt, or perhaps they think that the other person isn’t interested. But if you’re trying to figure out whether or not a girl likes you, there are some signs that you can look for.
Here are 21 of the most common ones.
1) She’s either speaking too much or not enough about herself.
This is especially shown in how she talks about herself and what she likes.
If they’re talking more than they listen, they may be trying to hide the fact that they like you because it could make them uncomfortable for some reason or another.
On the other hand, if a woman doesn’t talk at all, maybe there is something that they don’t like about themselves, and they’re trying to hide it by not talking.
2) She tries to make herself look busy.
If a girl is constantly looking at her phone or doing something else to seem like she’s busy, it might be because she doesn’t want you to think that she likes you.
It could also mean that she’s just swamped, but if this is the only time she ever does this, it’s probably a sign that she’s trying to hide her feelings.
3) She avoids eye contact.
One of the most common signs of someone trying to hide something is avoiding eye contact.
If a girl doesn’t look you in the eyes, it could mean that she’s not confident around you or that she’s trying to hide her true feelings.
4) She laughs at all your jokes, even the bad ones.
Ok, so this one might not be a sign that she’s trying to hide her feelings as much as it is that she likes you a lot.
But if a girl is always laughing at your jokes, even the bad ones, it could be because she’s trying to make a good impression on you.
5) She blushes a lot.
This one is another classic sign that someone is attracted to someone else.
If a girl is blushing a lot around you, it means that she’s probably pleased to be around you and that she likes you.
6) She talks about other guys around you.
If a girl is always talking about other guys around you, it might mean that she’s trying to make you jealous.
But it could also be a sign that she’s trying to hide the fact that she likes you.
7) She tries to make herself look more attractive.
If a girl is always trying to look more attractive when around you, it could mean that she’s trying to impress you.
But it could also be a sign that she’s trying to hide the fact that she likes you.
8) She teases you.
Teasing is another way to try to show their interest in someone else.
If a girl is always teasing you, it could be because she’s trying to get your attention and she likes you.
9) She’s trying to get close to you. (Physically).
This might not seem like a big deal, but it is.
The closer she gets to you, the more likely there’s something brewing in her head.
If she intentionally hangs out around you and asks for your opinion on things or tries to get personal with questions – that’s an indication of interest.
The most common sign she likes you is if she seeks out your presence.
If a girl can’t seem to stop thinking about you or mentions how much she misses talking with you, it’s likely because there are feelings in the air that go way beyond friendship.
10) She Knows a Few Things about You.
If she’s trying to hide her feelings for you, one of the best ways she knows how to do this is by getting more information about you.
She might have more than just your name and where you work memorized after a few dates.
That way, if someone were to ask who you are, they’ll be able to answer without giving away any signs that she might like you.
11) You notice she always seems to be watching you.
This is a huge sign that she likes you.
She might be watching how you talk to people, how you interact with others – and this could also mean she’s waiting patiently for her turn.
However, if not careful, it can come across as creepy or stalkerish, so make sure she notices you noticing her, then smile at her or make eye contact.
It’s also worth noting that she may not know how obvious it is, so don’t yell at her for “stalking” you!
12) She may show signs of jealousy.
The “fake” jealousy is an obvious indication.
She may well be trying to make you feel bad for talking with other girls by joking about it, but she’s wondering if you like the other girl.
She excitedly hopes that you’ll only have eyes for her!
12) She seems jumpy or nervous in your presence.
Of course, it’s natural that she makes a wrong first impression.
And given the circumstances, you’ve got a slight advantage pushing this cause. What are some signs of nervousness in a person?
If you see her stress or anxiety seem to jump as soon she sees you; it may indicate something more going on.
She may also be acting more reserved, and her demeanor is probably different from acting with other people.
When she’s trying not to like you, you may notice that she has difficulty around you.
13) She tries to be near you.
She might try to get near you even if she claims not to want that.
Her friends always tell her how lucky they think she is, but it doesn’t seem like she’s listening.
She might try to be near you when there is no need for her to do so, or within a short amount of time after getting away from the situation, and then again try hard not to be close.
For example: if she was sitting on one side of a table in a restaurant, and everyone else had left to get drinks, she might try to sit on the opposite side rather than stay alone.
She might also make it a point to touch you when you’re together and become more physically affectionate with every encounter.
14) She Treats You Differently.
To hide her interest in you, she might pretend to be bored (or not interested) when she’s around you.
She gives short feedback or nods her head at times but does not really engage with the conversation and instead seems like she’s paying more attention to something else.
This person may also find ways of changing topics when the conversation goes in a direction that might show how much she likes you, like asking about your work or what’s happening with other friends.
15) She listens to what you have to say.
There are ways to actively listen beyond letting the other person talk uninterrupted.
When you talk, please take note of how she behaves.
A good listener genuinely asks questions, and they can usually tell when you’re feeling uncomfortable with the topic.
16) She likes making you laugh or smile.
She jokes around and compliments you a lot when you’re together to lighten the mood.
Laughing at terrible jokes is a sure sign that she may like you.
She is trying to show support for your less-than-serious side.
A crushing girl will do little things to make the guy she likes happy.
17) She Knows you are Single.
If you haven’t already told her this, it may be worth thinking about.
How would a girl know this information if she didn’t have any feelings for the person already in mind?
She’s discreetly asked around to see whether or not you are single.
18) Eye contact is a strong indicator of interest.
When people like each other, one person might try to hide their interest in avoiding eye contact.
Whether they’re trying to hide their true feelings or express them more openly, the same factors may trigger an intense interest in someone else.
19) She Asks Frequent Questions
She’s trying to get to know you, but it becomes clear that there’s more to it if you listen closely.
She actively seeks your opinion on matters, mainly when nervous or unsure.
Girls may sometimes hide their interest in us to see if we are interested.
She might claim that she doesn’t know certain things that she does.
This girl most likely asks you probing questions in an attempt to engage you more.
20) She seems to enjoy being around you more than other people.
If you find yourself always seeing her, make sure she’s not just around because of school or work.
Have you considered the possibility that she may have wanted your company?
You may be on to something if she’s showing up or hanging out in the same place where you are all the time.
21) She Touches You.
When she touches you, it signifies that her feelings are more than just friendly. Women tend to feel the arm of the person they like; if this has often been happening, there may be an attraction.
When we are attracted to someone, our brain tells us, “I want them now,” so the body will send out messages through touch.
People who get touched also know they have been connected because their skin goes red or pink to indicate arousal.
