So, how do you know if a girl likes you?

You see, at one point in a guy’s life, he will definitely fall for a girl.

But it could sometimes be hard to decipher if she likes you, especially if she is the type that struggles to be honest about the way she feels.

Inviting a girl out on a date can be very stressless if the girl likes you, but the reverse is the case when she does not have a soft spot for you.

The idea of being turned down is a major situation no guy wants to experience especially when asking a girl out on a date.

But if you can take your time to decode the various signs she has been exhibiting.

It can help you know she likes you, and the fear of being turned down can be totally eliminated.

Using the various signs that she is into you can help you to be very self-assured and confident she will always say yes to your request, and you both can have a wonderful time together.

Most times the signs a girl gives may be done intentionally or subconsciously.

So whether she actually meant it or not, it is a clear indication of how she feels towards you.

I strongly recommend you read through all the 25 signs that can help you know if a girl really likes you.

And if after reading you did not notice any of the signs in her, it is very likely she is not into you.

So let’s get started right about now…

25 Signs to Know if a Girl Likes You

1) Her friends are aware of the way she feels towards you

Girls love telling their fellow girlfriends about the guy they really like.

The big question now is how will you know she has told her friends about you?

The answer to this question is very simple, she may obliviously tell you, and this how you will know.

Let’s say you both are hanging out, she tells you – “I was gisting with my friends over the weekend and I told them that you have never seen the new series of Game of Thrones, but they couldn’t believe it!” – you can rest assured she really likes you and more interested in something not superficial.

2) She wants her friends to meet you

No girl will go on a date with a guy that her friends have not given the seal of approval to.

So, if she mentions stuff like “my friends want to meet you in person” or “you have to meet my friends”, it indicates two things.

Which are:

  • Firstly, she wants to hear her friend’s opinion about you.
  • And secondly, she has told them a lot about you (which is the first sign), while the first indication is to let you know she plans on keeping you for a while.

3) She tries to know you more

girl talking to guy

This should be one of the key indications you should look out for in a girl that likes you.

And in fact, this is one of the best signs a girl likes you.

She will try to get information about you by telling you her personal information without you asking.

The information may range from your favorite dish, color, hobbies, friends, etc.

Do not be surprised when she says things you never mentioned to her, they might have been gathered by her own personal investigation with the help of your own friend, sibling or co-worker.

She may also start by having an interest in certain things you like and likewise develop a dislike for something you hate as well.

There are some things she may not like before that you might have noticed, but due to the fact that you like them, she may start developing an interest in them.

A very good example is maybe she likes keeping her nails long, but because she notices you like keeping your nails short, she may start cutting her nails to the extent her friends may be noticing the new changes in her simply because of you.

4) She tells you private information about herself.

lady deep talk to a guy

If a girl likes you, she will be free to have deep conversations with you quickly, and those conversations will be above the superficial level.

As a matter of fact, the conversation can quickly turn personal.

During the conversation, you get to know her future plans and dreams.

She may go as far as telling you the number of kids she will like to have, a city she will like to settle and other related family information that is very private.

Once she is free to tell you all these personal kinds of stuff, it is an indicator that she trusts you, and with a woman, trust is not something given easily or freely.

If she does these things, it is one of the clearest signs she likes you.

5) She initiates a one-on-one hang out

one on one hangout

When a girl wants to be around you, she will try and make up time for a hangout with you.

She will also make sure the hangout is a one-on-one thing with no distraction whatsoever.

As we already know a lot of things could happen when hanging out on a one-on-one basis rather than with a group.

They range from intimate conversations to flirting and maybe a kiss.

So, if you have a soft spot for a girl and does not want to hang out with you on a one-on-one basis when you request.

She may just want to be your friend and not really like you.

6) She randomly sends you pictures

Getting a text message is a nice thing, but have you ever thought about getting a picture from a girl you really like without asking for it?

Nothing beats that!

A girl is giving you access to her private life by sending you pictures of her randomly.

The pictures may be totally innocent or showing you what she is doing, so grab the opportunity because that is an invitation to her life.

Once a girl gets comfortable sending you pictures randomly.

She wants YOU to see the other side of her that no one sees at that particular time, and she trusts you to keep it private too.

As a guy, you are expected to compliment her and make her special, you can also try and criticize (with caution) some things in the picture either the background or color she was putting on her at that time.

7) She gives you a hint of her free periods

When a girl wants you to notice her, she will make everything easy for you and that is if you are the type that can decode her every move.

Trust me every girl is always busy if they do not want to be around you.

But if they really like you they can go as far as canceling any appointment made before that time.

She might mention she will be free on the weekend

OR

She will like to go to the movies but no one to accompany her and if you suggest some friends for her she may shrug off the idea and only wish for your company.

When a girl likes you, she can even let you know when and where you can locate her during her free times.

Gentlemen noticing a girl that likes you can never get any clearer than this, so act fast.

8) She jokes about you two being couples

When a girl is into you, she must have fantasied and imagined the two of you actually dating

Which, in turn, makes her jokingly drop a hint for you, expecting you to make it come to a reality.

She may jokingly say things like; “We are always together almost every time, my friends think we are dating, imagine us being a couple and go as far as saying I like the way I feel around you and I will do anything to make it continue”.

She may go on and ask you some intimate questions such as your favorite vacation destination, the color you like most on her, your friend’s view of her, etc.

All these are great indications she likes you and ready to date you.

9) Having long conversations seems easy

If a girl likes you, making herself available during conversations whether through texts, calls or physically seems easy to do even if it takes hours.

The conversation might become a daily routine scheduled for a particular time.

And the time frame might increase from minutes to hours daily without both of you keeping track of time, and she will be ready to skip some activities just to keep the conversation going.

is She tends to become angry if you miss her calls or fail to reply to her text messages on time.

Also when texting, she is quick to reply to your texts, and when you are not responding, she is already blasting your phone with her calls just to check up on you.

You will notice that there is always something to talk about and both of you are not short of conversation topics or ideas.

If this is what you are experiencing with a girl, you need to look no further, she really likes you!

10) She laughs at your dry jokes

couple laughing hard

One key thing to watch out for in a girl that likes you is the way she laughs at your jokes in a group setting or on a  one-on-one meeting.

There is nothing that boosts a guy’s confidence more than a girl laughing at his jokes, even if it is not funny.

She tends to laugh to your jokes even it is very obvious to you that what you said is not funny.

But you should be very observant whether she is giggling or belly laughing and if it the latter, she is really into you and there is nothing more magical than that.

She is laughing at your jokes even the dry ones simply because she wants you to have a good feeling around her so as to make you find more time with her.

Her friends may be wondering why she is laughing at your jokes because they do not see it funny.

So if there is a girl you like and she has been laughing at your jokes most especially the dry ones or anything you say in a public gathering or on a one-on-one meeting, she is into you and she likes you a lot.

So go ahead and make the move of asking her out on a date.

11) She becomes inquisitive and jealous of other girls around you

Once a girl likes you every other girl around you starts to annoy her and may be bold to the extent of asking you what relationship exists between the two of you.

The moment she is exhibiting jealousy to the women in your life or around you, it is a glaring fact that she has a feeling for you and she likes you a lot.

She can also be dramatic to the extent of asking the girls around you the relationship that exists between the two of you.

She may also start telling you the ones she likes and dislikes from your female friends.

There could be a change in her demeanor when you are around other female counterparts she considers hot or beautiful, forcing her to leave or pretend to be busy with work or friends.

And may later accuse you of leaving her for other girls, but trust me that is a sign she is into you and will do anything to keep you.

12) She makes an inquiry if you have a girlfriend

Girls are very crafty and not easy to understand these days, so do not act surprised if she asks you if you have a girl you are dating.

She is giving you the green light by asking this question because she does not want to share you with any girl.

And if you want to push further you can go ahead and tell her you to have a girl you once had a crush on, and wait for the shocker of your life with the way she will feel.

She may act a little awkward by saying she girl does not fit you and how you are way too out of her league.

She may not tell you physically that she is single, but the hints she will be dropping will let you know she is.

Also, she may be mentioning how her previous boyfriend cheated and moved on or how single she has been.

She can even tease you with how her dream guy must be by mentioning some features and compliments you personally know you possess and may start mentioning names of girls she feels you both have something going on.

And you should be able to make everything clear to her about how things are between the girl in question and yourself so as not to truncate the feeling she has for you.

13) She is eager to hear from you throughout the day

lady calling her special one

While you are still friends, she will be willing to hear from you at almost every time of the day either by text or through phone calls.

She will want to hear from you early in the morning to ask how your day has been scheduled, she may even give you the honor of suggesting what you want her to wear and eat.

During the day, she may randomly give you a call or send you a text to check up on how your day is going and may suggest a quick lunch together.

Later the day, she will also want to hear from you, how your day went, jobs executed, goals achieved for the day, etc.

She can also suggest what you can eat, and how her friends think she is cute in the dress you selected for her to wear for that day.

If she needs any advice on something or if she were to make any decision, and you are the first person she thinks of, it means she trust your decision, and this is not a free pass a girl who doesn’t like you give you.

14) She is always smiling at you

I don’t think you need any more lectures on this, because once a girl likes you, she will always be smiling at you once she sees your face even in weird situations except you have something funny on your face.

When the smiling is re-occurring on a daily basis, do not be too busy to notice or try to ask her why she is smiling at you because for some girls that question is a deal breaker.

All you need to do is to compliment how gorgeous she looks when she smiles and how you will like to see her smile more often.

You can return the favor by smiling back at her and mouthing some sweet words which will may her curious.

Trust me this will be a whole new mood for her, and she cannot control the feeling.

In addition, if she is short of words or nervous because of your presence, you don’t need any soothsayer to tell you the girl likes you.

If you two are just getting along, I will personally say this is the time you should invite her on a date or a hangout which will make both of you know more about yourselves.

15) She is already liking what you like

This may look a little bizarre but for the right cause.

Once a girl is into you she is ready to start doing what like doing and it may range from your type of music, sports team, language, and even food.

She may also start dressing differently from when you first saw her to a new type of dressing you unconsciously mentioned you liked to her.

There is no other sign you need to know if a girl likes you other than if she is ready to leave her own comfort zone to experience a new horizon of what you like which she may not like earlier, which may have a lot of significance to you.

The new changes in her may be spotted by friends and roommates and she may be bold enough to tell them she is loving the new thing she learned from you.

And since her friends are on the bandwagon they may confront and thank you for the positive impact you have made in their friend’s life.

So if you think she has a crush on you with her new behavior of liking what you like, you are simply right, so go ahead and make that girl yours.

16) Lingering around to see you

This may look more like she is stalking you everywhere but trust me it is not and she meant no harm.

If you see her lingering about, it is because she wants to know what you are doing and where you are.

So think about these questions;

  • Does she end up sitting next to you or almost next to you in a gathering or public transport?
  • Do you still find her hanging around even when her friends have moved out of the classroom and want to talk to you?
  • Does she show up at a particular time of the day when she knows you will be there? And does she show up with snacks when you are in a lonely place?
  • Does she always wait to see where you are going before making decisions for herself?

Then that is an indicator she likes you and her way of keeping close to you.

Lingering around you is a girl’s way of telling you she likes you, and want to be near you always and will be willing to do anything to keep it that way, only if you make it easy for her.

17) She is always touching you

A girl that really likes you will find it easy touching you whether in a public gathering or in a one-on-one meeting.

She may try touching you throughout maybe when you are having a conversation with her by trying to fix your buttons, comb your hair, or even adjust your shirt.

She could make the touching more intimate by touching your arm, hand or shoulder during conversations.

And will be touching your hand repeatedly so you can know she is enjoying the conversation, your company and you.

She may unconsciously drop her hand on your knee frequently and expect you to do the same since she has broken the touch barrier.

This is a girl’s way of letting you know it is time to get closer.

18) She includes you in her future event

This is a very important sign to look out for from a girl that likes you because as a girl she will have a lot of options to choose from so she choosing you without a blink means she actually likes you.

It could also be significant because once a girl includes you in her future plans, she really wants you in her life.

She may come up with the invite in the form “I have a wedding to attend next week Saturday, and I will be very happy if you come with me” or “We should see that movie together when it is out”.

She is trying to pass the message she is comfortable being around you and also ready to share some happy times with you.

You can also return the favor by including her in your future event plans so it does not look one-sided.

But trust me, when a girl includes you in her future events, she was not told to do so but really choose you because she has a crush on you.

19) Other things are irrelevant to you around

girl listening attentively to guy

Is she the type that is always texting with her phone, calling or the type that usually uses social media e.g. Facebook or Instagram when she is with you?

Then she may not really like you.

A girl that likes you will keep other distractions away especially her phone when you are on a one-on-one hang out.

She may even decide not to pick her calls or even reply to her text messages so that she can be fully engaged in what you both are gisting about.

So if she is more focused on her phone when you are around her, then she is not into, but if the reverse is the case, she has a thing for you.

20) When given a compliment by you she blushes

girl blushing

This is very technical as most girls blush when complimented.

You should look carefully when complimenting her, and try to ask yourself the question;

Does she become shy, start stammering or short of words immediately I compliment her?

If yes, then she has a crush on you and this is best noticed if she is the type that is jovial and outspoken.

Complimenting a girl makes them vulnerable and they instantly become mute following those sweet words from someone they actually have a crush on.

She may also become shy and quiet when complimented because she does not know how to react to the attention she just received from you.

This is caused by a shock simply because she was not expecting something of such from you.

So if you see a girl stuttering or feeling weird when you compliment her, it may be that the girl likes you.

21) She posts pictures on social media to show you two have to see each other

Trust me no single girl will post the picture of the guy he is not into on her social media page.

So anytime you see pictures of yourself on any social media platform, it is one important sign she is into you.

So if in any way you receive calls or messages from close friends about your pictures flooding her timeline, don’t be too quick to follow her social media pages.

Just let her be in charge because she is trying to pass the message that she is seeing someone.

You can just try to be a stalker and monitor how things go on her page without interfering or acting as if you saw those posts.

22) She says yes when you ask her for a hangout

Unlike sign number 5, you are the one initiating a hangout and any girl that really likes you will not think it twice before saying yes to your request.

It may not necessarily be the day you planned due to her schedule, but she will tell you when she will be free.

For instance, if you ask her for a hangout, she may tell you she already has an appointment for that day but will love to go out with you.

And may perhaps tell you a day free for her.

A girl that really likes you will want to spend quality alone time with you.

But don’t mess it up by asking for a hangout especially on days you know are busy days.

23) She compliments you

Nothing gets to a guy quickly more than a girl that just complimented him.

She may compliment the way you smile, your cologne, and even your dress sense.

It may be that you are wearing an old hoodie from school, but to a girl that likes you, you will always be Prince charming.

Most guys don’t know the best response to the compliment “you look good”, especially when told in a public setting.

It may make the girl feel bad, but I can tell you boldly that the best thing you can do is smile and say a little thank you with all sincerity and emotion in your eyes, trust me she will notice it.

So for a girl to give you a compliment she really likes you. So, how can you tell if a girl likes you?

Compliments are the key!

24) She loves flaunting her curves

Once a girl interested in you, she will do anything to gain your attention, ranging from dressing nicely, smelling good and looking radiant.

You need to know that every girl is conscious of what she puts on her body, and when they want to flaunt it, it will be for the right reason.

So when she knows she is in her “killer outfit”, she gallivants around you so you can notice her.

You may bump into her types without number, and without mincing words, she is into you and you must not abuse that privilege.

25) You easily see her “dorky” side

girl doing weird things with her man

Once a girl likes you, she becomes comfortable and with no time reveals to you another side of her hidden to the world.

It may be;

  • The way she eats
  • How she pronounces some words
  • How she mixes her cereals
  • TV series she loves watching
  • The type of book she reads
  • Her favorite music
  • The way she dances etc.

It actually makes you familiar with another side of her no one else has experienced.

In fact, this is one of the best ways to tell if a woman is attracted to you.

In Conclusion…

The signs enlisted on here may have well helped you in answering the niggling question in your mind – how do I know if a girl likes me?

I will advise you take into consideration the behavior of the girl you are hanging out with and check the kind of sign(s) she has been exhibiting.

It is also very possible for a girl that is into you to give you more than one sign listed above but very hard to exhibit all.
