So you want to know how to tell if a girl likes you?

Below are 12 signs!

1. She Smiles At You

If you notice a girl looking at you, don’t get too excited and read the wrong signals, but if you notice a girl looking at you more than three times and she smiles at you, then it’s not a fluke.

If she is interested she will make eye contact, which is usually accompanied by a smile and a giggle.

These three signs are about as surefire as you can get to gauge some interest in you.

2. She Notices You When You Are In Her Presence

Does she seem to notice, smile or make eye contact with you whenever you are in her presence?

If and when a girl is with a group of friends and clearly notices you (and makes it obvious that she notices you) then there is definitely some interest.

Take it as a strong sign that she definitely might just like you.

Read the situation, but this is one of the really clear signs that a girl likes you.

3. She Looks You In The Eye When Having A Conversation

Direct eye contact for more than a second is a good signal and a strong possibility that she is interested in you.

There could be many reasons for this.

She could firstly find you very attractive, and making eye contact could cause some release of hormones in her brain.

Also, lengthened eye contact could also she wants to engage with you on a personal level.

Either way, prolonged eye contact is a great sign that their is explicit interest.

On the other hand, if you are having a conversation and she is constantly looking away in the direction of her friends etc, then it could mean she is not interested at all.

4. Tries To Be Physically Close To You All Of The Time

Signs A Girl Likes You

Is she trying to get as physically close to you as possible?

If yes, then that’s a good sign.

I’ll explain more below!

One of the most obvious “how to tell if a girl likes you” signs is if she makes a noticeable move to be closer to you physically.

It doesn’t matter whether she is shy or extroverted, if she make an effort to be physically closer to you then she is definitely into you.

Maybe it’s something as simple as she leans into you when talking to you, or gets close to your ear in a bar to talk to you.

Basic things, but they come with a lot of meaning.

5. She Initiates Touch

It’s important to understand that most of the human interaction takes place without a single word being spoken.

This comes in the form of touch, eye contact etc.

Yet most men find it very hard to understand the subtleties of how women behave, and the indirect signs that women give men.

Pay attention to ‘accidental’ touches such as gentle nudges of either your arm against hers or her hip that brushes your hip as she walks by you etc.

Whether these ‘accidental’ touches mentioned above seem intentional or accidental, it’s important to pay close attention to them.

Most women are really good at avoiding unnecessary touch!

Chances are good that these touches were ‘accidental’ are smaller than you think.

6. Finds Your Jokes Hilarious

Does a girl like you? 12 Signs she does

Women are attracted to men that make them laugh.


And this is true to all types of relationships with women.

It has been said that displaying a good sense of humour is the single most effective tactic men can use to make themselves more attractive to women.

Laughter and humour can also be an indicator of powerful mutual interests which you both share.

To make a long story short, if she laughs at your jokes, there is a good chance she is feeling some organic chemistry and is very interested in you.

7. Connects With You On A Personal Level

Personal connection equals instant attraction.

But how do you know to pursue or gather whether she is interested in you on a personal level?

For starters, she talks to you about more than just the weather!

Also, if you notice she gives you thought out answers, and not just answers such as ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I guess’ etc.

You’ll also know she is connecting with you on a personal level if she shares stories about herself, her career or job, and her life in general.

Remember if you are having a hard time thinking of things to say to keep the conversation fluid, you can try out any of these topics to talk about with a girl!

8. Gives You Lots Of Attention

Who doesn’t like attention from females?

I don’t know any man who is turned off when he gets attention from a female that he is really interested in.

Does she always seek you out?

Are you guys always at the same parties and does she always seem to bump into you?

Chances are good this isn’t an accident!

Women are very good at avoiding men that they don’t want to spend time with, and so they won’t seek you out by accident.

When you are talking to her, does she always seem distracted? Is she constantly checking her phone? Or maybe she’s always looking around? These are signs she might not be that interested in you.

So make sure to pay close attention to how she directs her attention when she’s around you.

9. She Texts You First & Frequently

Does she text she often, like almost everyday?

And does reply at rapid quick pace to your text messages?

Rule of thumb: women do not text you if they are not interested in you.


You can also tell how much effort she puts into her text messages to you.

Are her replies short, sharp replies or are they detailed? Or are they funny, quirky and you can see some effort has been put in?

Women don’t put effort into detailed texting if they are not interested.

10. Asks About Your Female Friends & Previous Dating Life

How To Tell If A Girl Likes You or Not

Women will actively inquire about your previous dating life and various relationships with other women.

This will help her gauge how much interest and resources you have already invested into other females.

And it’s also a sign she might just like you.

Why would she be asking all these questions about your past and current dating life if she wasn’t interested in you?

There is a direct correlation between resources (time, money, sexual attention and motivation) and your previous dating life and women know this is and actively seek it out.

11. She Is Very Keen To Spend Time With You

Does she ask you often what your weekend plans are and what you are up to?

Can you gauge that she is interested in spending a lot of time with you?

Chances are very good that she is interested in you if she wants to spend a lot of time with you.

It doesn’t take rocket science to figure this one out.

Because, generally speaking, women won’t want to spend time with you if they are not interested.

Simple as that!

12. She Interacts Publicly With You On Social Media

If she is sharing pictures of you two together on Facebook or Instagram, then chances are good she is very into you.

She is basically telling the whole social media universe, (which is 90% of the world) that you are hers and no other female should lay a hand on you!

It’s important to not take mixed signals when it comes to the social media, though.

If she likes or comments on some of your pictures, that’s not a sure sign that she is into you.

But if she shares a picture of you two on social media and tags you in it, then this is a sure sign of strong interest.

Signs she likes you

It’s Important To Keep Your Head In The Game!

It’s important to be level headed and look for certain signals on whether a female is into you or not.

On top of that, it is also important to not take the wrong signals.

And this is done by putting all these signals into context.

One needs to be able to interpret signals, and not mistake them for what they aren’t.

Every time any female does any of the things mentioned above, it won’t necessarily mean she likes you.

For example, if a bartender or waitress smiles at you whilst helping you out, it doesn’t always mean she likes you. She is just doing her job as well as possible!

Read every situation, and remember to put it all in context.

Make sure that you stay focused and pay attention to your interactions with her.

You can figure out whether she is interested in you as you go along, but you have to give yourself a chance by staying in the moment and being focussed on your interactions with her.

Beware Of Over Estimating Your Chances And Confirming Your Bias

This is easiest thing to get wrong.

Taking signals the wrong way and not being self aware.

Confirmation bias basically means that you always see the situation and outcome as a favourable one for yourself, and don’t pay attention to what really goes on.

As much as we want a girl to likes us, we need to make sure we read the signals correctly.

So how can you make sure you aren’t reading the signals incorrectly?

Don’t Take The First Signal To Heart

If she gives you one signal she is probably being friendly.

If she gives you two or more signals, she may be flirting with you and actually like you.

If you get a few signals from her (see the 12 signs above) then you need to really focus on her and engage in conversation.

But sometimes and quite often this isn’t enough.

So how do filter even deeper to see if there is interested from her side?

Trust your instincts!

How To Sense If She Is Uninterested In You

If she gives you any kind of excuse that she doesn’t want to see you or hang out with you, then you shouldn’t give up just yet.

However, if it becomes a bit of a re occurrence, then chances are she might just not be that interested.

It’s important to remember that if she is keen on you, it will be comfortable and effortless and won’t feel like a job interview.

Trust your gut.

Do not ask a women out or for her phone number unless you have established some form of verbal or even normal rapport with her.

It’s all about context and feel.

Yet again, trust your gut.

Final Words

Knowing how to tell if a girl likes you is not an exact science.

Far from it, in fact.

However, we can use certain tell signs and signals that help us paint a picture of what’s going on!

But even with all that has been said above, you might have a completely different type of expeirence.

Just remember to read the situation, look for small signals, and trust your gut.

Then make a decision and go for it!
