The signs that a girl likes you are everywhere. From the subtle ways she tries to get your attention, to the ways she engages in conversation, to her body language – there are endless opportunities to spot the signs a woman likes you. To learn what these signals are and to be able to spot the signs that a girl likes you in all the areas mentioned above, read on.
Stealth signs of interest
If a woman is interested in you she’ll often find an excuse to engage you. Even the most subtle and indirect actions – like dropping something near you, asking you a question/for help/for a favor, or “accidentally” bumping into you (if this is followed by strong eye contact, you know it’s no accident) can be a sign the girl likes you and wants to start a conversation with you.
Now it might be tough to judge whether or not her actions were genuine or an excuse to get your attention. If you’re not sure, just assume she did it because she’s interested in you. Assuming the girl is attracted to you right off the bat will give you more confidence to start a conversation with the woman and will help get the woman attracted to you even if she wasn’t initially.
Conversation as a sign of interest
Guys sometimes forget that if a girl is not interested she’ll find an excuse to leave. So if a girl does the opposite – and finds an excuse to stick around or tries to extend the conversation – that alone can be a strong sign she’s interested in you.
For example, if a girl responds to your banter or fills dead space by asking you questions (especially if they are questions about yourself) that alone can be a sign the woman is interested in you and wants the conversation to continue.
In your conversations with women you may notice the girl offers up an excuse to hang out with you more (“I’m don’t know where my friends are so I’ll just hang out with you for a bit”). When this happens, take it as a sign of interest– as a sign she likes you but is afraid to admit it. Again, even if you’re wrong, this attitude will build confidence in yourself and ultimately make it that much easier to get the woman attracted to you.
Opening up as an indicator of interest
One way to tell a girl likes you is if she starts to open up to you. If she’s sharing personal information, it can be a sign she likes you, is comfortable with you, and wants you to get to know her. It’s also a sign she’s interested in you in that, by opening up she’s giving you the green light to do the same – so that she can learn more about you.
In general, you can tell how comfortable and interested she is in you by the level of depth in the information she shares. If during your conversation with a woman all she shares are things like her job title and where she grew up, it’s a sign the woman isn’t comfortable opening up. But if she starts sharing content that’s emotional and personal – such as what it was like growing up or what she loves about her job – that’s a much stronger sign the girl likes you and feels comfortable with you.
If you want to get women to open up like this in your conversations with women, then you should set the tone and open up first. For example, before asking her about her childhood briefly share something about your own childhood first. This is a great way to build rapport with a woman because it will compel her to open up while showing her it’s safe to do so.
Body language signs of female attraction
Specific body language signs of attraction have been covered elsewhere (like the article here and the Art of Charm podcast on signs of attraction women show). But there are also more general body language signs that a girl likes you that you should look for.
One type of body language signal to look out for is to see if the woman starts acting especially feminine (or “girly”). For instance, you might notice that when you’re around she giggles, starts blushing, becomes fidgety – and basically turns into a little girl. A girl who is interested in you will start to highlight her feminine side so that you’ll become attracted in her.
Other body language signals to be on the lookout for are ones that make the woman appear more attractive. For example, as you approach a woman or continue a conversation with a woman, you may notice she suddenly holds her head a little higher, straightens her back, or sticks out her chest out. These subtle adjustments in posture and body language signal that the woman wants to make a good impression. The simple fact that she cares about your perception of her can often be a sign she’s attracted to you.
