14 Biggest Signs A Girl Likes You
Sometimes the signs a woman likes you are things she does intentionally, and other times they're subconscious. Whether she means to or not, she's sending you pretty clear hints about how she feels about you and what her answer would be if you asked her out.
Save yourself some stress and find a good match faster by learning how to tell if someone is into you.
1. She doesn't hesitate to say yes when you ask her to hang out
Someone who genuinely admires you isn't going to hesitate when you give an invitation to hang out. You don't have to look for a subtle sign if this one's present.
When you ask her to get a bite to eat with you, she'll usually smile and say sure or absolutely.
And if she does have something planned...
...she'll try to change her schedule:
Oh, I can't. I'm so sorry...but I'd love to try something another time!
I have plans tomorrow...but I'm free on Saturday!
A woman who's into you will genuinely want to spend her time and frequently bond around you.
2. She's told her friends about you
I'll let you in on a little secret:
Women love talking with their girlfriends about the guy they have a crush on.
How do you know if she's told her close friend about you?
Usually, they will unintentionally tell you:
If, while the two of you are hanging out, she says something like, "I was telling my roommate the other day about how you had never seen Jurassic Park. She couldn't believe it either!" then you can be pretty sure she's interested in more than friendship.
3. She does specific things when you're in a group setting
When you first get to know each other, you'll likely hang out in a group setting.
Here's how to tell if someone is interested in you - aside from common in-person flirting signs, she will:
- Frequently look at you (you can tell this if you two make a lot of eye contact)
- Make it a point to sit close enough to you that the two of you can have personal space
Either of these is a great sign a woman is into you.
4. She initiates physical touch when you're in public
Here, there are two different scenarios to consider:
When you first see her
What does your female friend do when you first see each other?
Awkward wave? High five? Side hug?
If she's into you, she'll likely do something that breaks the intimate "touch barrier." The most common way she'll do it is through a sincere hug. A heartfelt hug is more than the standard "greeting" hug and may even be closer to a bear hug.
This means she feels comfortable around you and has no problem breaking the "touch barrier."
When you're hanging out
Pay close attention to the number of times she touches you.
If it's more than 5 times while you're together (specifically on the knee, shoulder, or arm), then there's a good chance she's further breaking that "touch barrier."
Physical contact is an essential gesture in any relationship. Body language cues are a surefire sign if she's already breaking the touch barrier down.
5. Conversations between the two of you seem effortless
Both your conversations and your time together seem effortless.
A two-hour date suddenly turns into an eight-hour date, and neither of you seems to notice where the time went.
If this is happening to you...
...she likes you.
It's an excellent sign you must not ignore.
6. You're starting to see her "dorky" side
A woman who is comfortable with and sincerely likes you will start to reveal things she doesn't share with the rest of the world.
Many times, this can come in the form of an embarrassing quirk she has...
...or watching her nerd-out about her favorite book or TV series.
The two of you are comfortable together, with no signs of nervousness at all, and neither of you has to be someone that you're not.
7. She has openly told you some personal details about her life
Think about the conversations you two have.
If this woman is really into you, your conversations, whether in person or a texting conversation, won't always remain surface level. These conversations can turn personal very quickly.
You don't just know what her favorite hobbies are...
...you also know what some of her biggest goals and dreams are.
If she isn't afraid to reveal the more personal stuff to you, it means she trusts you. With women, trust is not something freely or easily given to any man.
While we’re talking about fears and repressed childhood memories, we should probably mention that when a girl breaks out of her comfort zone for you, and decides to do something she told you she’d never do, like hopping on a the new Vomit Comet when she told you she hates roller coasters, it means she trusts you.
But is she into you? Absolutely. And it’s a clear breakthrough for your relationship with her. Keep it up.
9. She's mentioned an event she wants to go to with you
This one should be a dead giveaway of her interest.
When someone includes you in her plans for the future, it means she wants you there...in her future.
This could include her saying anything from, "We should see that movie when it comes out" to "There's this wedding coming up, and I'd love for you to go with me."
While these are two extremes, any time a woman includes you in her plans for the future is a tell-tale sign.
10. She wants you to meet her roommates/friends
Most women won't date a guy who hasn't been given the stamp of approval by her closest friends.
So, if she's saying things like, "You have to meet my roommates. They'd love you!" or "My roommates have been dying to meet you," it tells you two things:
- She told her friends about you (sign #2)
- She wants her friends' opinion of you
If she's including her friends in the process, she is thinking about keeping you around for a while.
11. She's fully present when she's with you
Is your crush constantly checking her Twitter or Facebook, sending texts, or making calls when she's with you?
If someone is really into you, she'll be fully present when you're together, especially one-on-one.
She may check her Instagram a few times or send an occasional text, but for the most part, she's engaged with what you two are doing or talking about.
So how do you tell if someone really likes you? Well, if she's more focused on you than her phone, it's a clear sign.
12. She wants to hang out one-on-one
It's usually during a one-on-one time that relationships move to the next level. Countless things may happen here that likely wouldn't happen when you're hanging with a group:
So, if you've been consistently hanging out with someone for 5-6 weeks, and she still doesn't want to hang out with just you when you ask, she may only want to be friends.
13. She mirrors your behaviors
There's an old phrase about why people copy each other: imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Meaning... we want to be like the people that we like!
This holds true in romance too. When someone is into you, she will subconsciously imitate, or mirror, your behavior, and body language (this is especially true when a shy girl likes you)
Does she lean in when you lean in? Does she relax when you relax? Swirl the ice in her glass after you do?
Whether she realizes it or not, she mirrors your behavior so that you will have a good impression of her...
She does it because she's into you! It's the little things and social cues that count.
14. She Asks You a Lot of Questions
If you've already read our post on personal questions to ask a girl, you know the importance of asking questions.
By asking questions, she communicates her interest in you and her desire to get to know you deeper.
Be sure to answer her questions thoughtfully. You'll encourage her to keep going and show her that she's someone you'd like to open up to.

10 Signs a Girl Likes You Over Text
Technology plays a significant role in today's intimate relationships.
According to Pew Research, 41% of young adults in serious relationships report feeling closer to their partner because of technology.
So, if you've been texting with a girl you have a crush on... it's essential to learn how to tell if a girl likes you over text. Some of the best ways to know if a woman is interested in you are the same in person as they are in text, but texting is a different means of communication...
There are several clues you can use to tell how she's feeling about you.
15. The two of you text at least every other day
It's a really good sign if you're in fairly consistent contact with the person you like.
There are two things to note with this:
- If a woman is into you, she's going to respond to your texts quickly
- The more you talk, the more likely it is that she admires you
16. And on that note...she isn't sending you one-word responses when you initiate texting her.
When you text her, she doesn't respond with something like "hey." or "fine."
Look out for the one-word responses with a period after them. If you're getting those from her, you might want to take a step back.
Girls who are interested in a guy will try to keep a texting conversation going.
17. In fact...she even initiates texting you pretty often
This one is an obvious sign she's interested in you.
If the lady you like is consistently initiating text conversations...
...it means you're on her mind, and she wants to be in contact with you.
18. She posts pictures on social media showing that the two of you have been hanging out
If you see pictures of yourself on any of her social channels, it's one of the great signs a girl likes you.
If she in any way broadcasts to the world that she's been hanging out with you, she probably wants it to be known that she's "talking" to someone.
Don't quickly go over emotions and follow all of her social channels. Just keep an eye on where you're already connected.
19. She posts things on your Facebook wall or tags you in things she thinks you'll like
This one is huge.
When we have feelings for someone, everything reminds us of them.
Think about it:
You watch a movie and think, "Oh, (the person you're crushin' on) would love that."
You see a new restaurant and think, "Oh, I should tell (the person you're crushin' on) about that place. She loves Asian food."
You see a hilarious YouTube video and think, "(Person you're crushin' on) would die laughing at this. I've got to show her."
It's the same for women. If she's posting things on your social media channels, it means you're definitely on her mind. It's a sure sign you can't deny.
20. When you talk on the phone, the two of you have no problem talking for a while
Every time you call, she seems excited to talk.
Just like with in-person signal number 5 above, conversations on the phone feel effortless.
If your phone calls extend past 5-10 minutes (semi-consistently), it's a great sign.
21. She texts you frequent updates
When someone's interested in you, she wants you to have a more significant part of her life. One way she communicates this is by sending you updates about what she's doing.
Take this as a subtle hint that she's thinking about you and wishing you were together.
22. She spells her words in a cute way
We all have unique ways of speaking that don't always come across via text. If your crush takes the time to make messages match her personality...
You can bet it's because she thinks you're worth the effort. It's not just some stupid joke.
23. She teases you
It may seem paradoxical, but teasing is a great setup for flirting. By teasing you, she's showing her sense of humor and giving you the perfect opportunity to come up with a flirty response.
24. She sends you photos
It's nice to get a text message, but it's incredible to get a pic.
When she sends you pictures, she's giving you behind-the-scenes access to her life. Even when the pics are innocent, by showing you what she's doing or where she is, she's welcoming you deeper into her life.
7 Signs A Girl Likes You And Wants You To Chase Her
When you're doing it right, dating is a fun and exciting experience.
That energy comes from meeting someone you have chemistry with...from putting yourself out there and flirting with someone you connect with. The early stage of a relationship is a game of testing for feelings and boundaries.
When a woman wants to let you know that the game is on, she'll send some pretty intentional signs she wants you to chase her.
Now, you might be thinking that you don't want to play games. That's understandable. Mind games in dating mostly leave us confused and alone. But this kind of game is different... it's a game of building passion and intensity, and one you're going to want to try.
25. Deeper and longer eye contact
It's just polite to make eye contact when speaking with someone...
But if she holds your gaze, looks into your eyes with intensity, if there's passion behind her stare...
That's not just her being polite. That's her communicating her desire without words.
26. Proximity and lingering
Does she always end up in whatever car you're riding in?
Does she sit near you, if not next to you, when she has the chance?
Does she wait to see what you're doing or where you're going before she makes up her mind?
Keeping close proximity to you and lingering to be able to spend more time with you is her way of saying, "I like you. I want to be near you. I'll make it as easy for you as possible."
27. She “casually” keeps touching you
A person who's into you will find all kinds of excuses to touch you.
She'll fix your collar. She'll get an eyelash off your cheek. She'll fix your hair. She'll grab your hand when she's surprised.
By innocently breaking the touch barrier like this, she is inviting you to do the same thing.
She wants to let you know that it's time to come in a little bit closer.
28. She drops hints that she'll be free at certain times
Most of the time, when someone wants you to chase her, she's not going to try too hard to get away.
She might even let you know precisely where and when to find her.
If your crush makes a point of mentioning that she's got no plans this weekend, or that she wanted to see that movie but had no one to go with or jokes about sitting around bored in the evenings... she's telling you exactly how to ask her out!
It doesn't get much easier than this, gentleman.
29. She talks about you two being a couple
When your crush jokes about the two of you dating, she's dropping hints that she's got the idea in her mind, and she's encouraging you to make it happen.
She might say things like:
- We're together all the time. We might as well be dating!
- We get along so well. Imagine us as a couple. We'd never fight!
Or she might get a little vulnerable and say something like
- I feel so good when I'm with you... and I don't want that to stop.
These are excellent signs that she's thinking about dating you... and that she's into the idea. You don't need any relationship expert to prove to you that she's into you.
Just be sure to look out for the friend zone trap. It will sound like something encouraging, but it isn't. Does this sound familiar?
- I wish I could find a guy that's nice like you. Why are all men jerks?
This one sounds positive... but isn't. She says that you're nice, but she's also making it clear that she doesn't see you as a dating option. If you were an option, she wouldn't wish for a guy like you... you're right there.
30. Laughs at all your jokes, even the stupid ones
Nothing builds confidence like getting some laughs at your jokes and a response to your playful banter. It just feels good.
If she's laughing at all your attempts at jokes, it's because she wants you to feel good about yourself.
She wants you to feel good around her to encourage you to find more time together.
31. Asks about your other female friends or whether you have a girlfriend
When she asks about your female friends and relationships, she's wondering what obstacles stand between you. The moment she shows jealousy over the other women in your life, you know that she has feelings.

How To See The Signs A Girl Likes You: 3 Steps
It won't do you any good if she's sending the signs and you're missing them. So, now that you know how to tell if a girl likes you let's end with a bit of advice on how to pick up on the signs she's sending.
1. Be Likable
I know it seems pretty straightforward, but a lot of guys overlook this very basic step. Girls probably won't be making eyes at you from across the room if you're making a scene or being obnoxious.
If you want women to take an interest, act in a way that makes them think that being with you would be fun. Laugh with your friends. Dance, if that's your thing. Put out a vibe of approachability and positivity.
Be likable, and she'll feel much more comfortable making her attraction known.
2. Keep a Clear Head
It's no secret that a little bit of liquid confidence makes talking to girls easier, but drinking too much can seriously cloud your judgment.
If you keep a clear mind, you'll be much more able to pick up on and act on the signs that she's into you.
Not only that...with all your reasoning intact, you can stop yourself from saying something embarrassing or doing something you'd regret.
So next time you're on the town, just be sure to keep your wits about you.
3. Be Observant
Alright, so you've been putting out good vibes, and your vision isn't blurring...
Now it's time to take in the scenery.
Pay attention to the behavior of the girl you've been hanging out with and see what kind of signs she's giving off. Look at your surroundings and take note of any girls who also seem to notice you.
Remember as many of the signs a girl likes you as you can, and then use your psychology today to read the situation.
You can always take a leap of faith, but looking for the signs a girl likes you before you ask her out, you're way more likely to get the answer you hoped for.
Frequently Asked Questions
Signs are confusing. We agree with that. But we're ready to answer all of your questions.
How do you know if she's secretly into you and is hiding it?
The signs she is secretly attracted to you are subtle. She doesn't want you to know about these. However, even though they're subtle, you'll notice these little things. She likes being around you, she always talks about you, she always invites you out, and more. There's no denying these.
How do you know if she is dropping hints?
Anything that shows that she's trying to grab your attention, either by being physical with you or by talking to you all the time. She's dropping all the hints with these.
Is she interested but shy, or is she just not interested at all? She watches me in class, pokes me teasingly, acts shy and embarrassed around me, but ignored my attempts to talk on Facebook.
The signs a shy girl likes you are much like the subtle signs. The best way to go about this is by asking her directly.
How do you know if a girl has a crush on you in school?
If you’re out here trying to google “how to know if your crush likes you”, look no further. According to science, building a connection is one of the key components to attraction. So if she voluntarily wants to hang out with you, always and in all ways, it’s a good sign she’s into you too.
How do you make someone want you?
If you've ever asked how to make her want you, you probably already know there's a ton of things you need to do. But in reality, all you have to do is be yourself. The right woman will appreciate it.
How to know she loves you secretly?
If you see any of the signs above and add in that she seems to always enjoy being around you, you need to stop asking yourself, "does she love me?" Instead, be brave and ask her yourself. These signs can mean she's secretly into you.
How many signs should you look for to be sure she likes you?
While there's no hard and fast rule, but if a girl shows:
- Five or more of these signs, it's likely she's interested in a relationship.
- Three or four, she's definitely showing some interest, but things probably need more time to develop.
- One or two isn't enough to tell if she likes you. It doesn't mean the door is completely closed, though. If you like her, continue pursuing her and wait for her to show you more signs.
What are the signs she doesn't like me?
Understanding "How do you know if a girl likes you?" involves knowing when she doesn't like you. Signs a girl doesn't like you are important because they will save everyone the trouble of unnecessary effort.
We also live in a time where respecting clearly set boundaries--signs a girl doesn't like you--is a desperately needed social grace that will heal a lot of the historical conflict between men and women. In other words, your ability to know when to step back can send a powerful message that you are aware of yourself and the impact of your actions on others.
- She turns away from you and keeps her distance: If her body language is closed off, take the hint.
- She shuts conversation flow down with one-word answers: A response that is terse, insipid, and non-inquiring is a clear message that she's not invested.
- She doesn't respond at all: If you've initiated a connection 3 times with no response, it's time to seek elsewhere.
- She drops hints about another partner: Another commitment is used as a polite way to decline.
- She says she's busy: "Busy" is a catch-all for "no." A girl who's interested makes time for you, no matter how busy she is.
