It would be so much easier if they just came right out and said it, wouldn’t it?
But they won’t.
It’s up to you, as a man, to take notice of the subtle signals a woman is giving you, and act accordingly.
It you don’t have your eyes wide open for these signals you may wind up in a dead end conversation with a girl who has no interest in you past the free drinks you’ve been feeding her…
Or even worse … you may wind up walking away from a girl who is practically jumping at the chance to follow you back to your place and tear your clothes off.
So what are these subtle signals you should be looking out for? What are other way how to tell if a girl likes you?
Signs a woman might be interested?
All of the signs below, in isolation, don’t necessarily mean a woman is into you. But as you begin to see several of these signals of interest, you can be certain that, at the very least, you’ve got enough rapport to begin to escalate the conversation to a more intimate level.
- She is laughing at your jokes, even when they’re not funny
If a girl is being the perfect audience, laughing on cue, egging you on to talk more, and has a big smiled plastered across her face the entire time you’re talking it is a pretty clear indication that she’s enjoying your company.
When we laugh at someone we unconsciously are saying “I like you. And I’m listening to what you’re saying.” And if she is going out of her way to make sure that she’s laughing … she is also going out of her way to encourage you to keep talking.
Just be careful not to confuse true laughter with an “oh my god get me out of here” grin or a nervous giggle.
- She tells you to take a sip of her drink
This one has been an almost 100% indicator for me over the years that a woman was ready to be kissed.
If you’re at a bar talking to a woman, and she hands you her drink and says something like “Try my drink.” Or if she encourages you in any way to take a sip of her drink, she is unconsciously telling you that she is comfortable with you on a more intimate level. This is a great “little known” how to tell if a girl likes you.
- She asks you if you have a girlfriend or pries for the information
When a woman is around a man that she is becoming attracted to, she will almost always try to find out if he has a girlfriend.
Most women will flat out ask.
If she doesn’t flat out ask, she’ll most likely ask questions that pry for the information like “Who do you live with?” Or if you just told a story about going on vacation or to a concert, she’ll say “Who did you go with?”
If a woman has no interest in you whatsoever, she very rarely will care whether or not you have a girlfriend.
- The Hi-Five Test
If you want to actively try to figure out if a woman is interested … here is a little test you can do that will help you gage the amount of interest a woman has.
As you’re talking to a woman, and she says something you like, give her a high five.
The key is that as you slap her hand sort of grip her fingers for a split second. Her reaction to this indicates her comfort level around you.
If she pulls her hand immediately away, or leaves her fingers limp, she probably still does not feel comfortable around you.
On the other hand, if she hold her hand there for a second, grips your fingers back, or sort of lets her hand slide against yours … it’s a pretty good indicator that you’ve developed a nice level of rapport with her.
- She calls you a player
Most guys would assume that if a girl says “you’re such a player” that she is probably not interested. But this is just one of those counter-intuitive things you figure out with enough time talking to women.
If a woman calls you a player, two things have already been accomplished. The first is that she has become comfortable enough around you to say that sort of thing. And the second, is that she views you as the sort of guy who is used to talking to women.
If a woman ever makes this sort of statement, simply view it as a “shit test” and go on with the conversation as usual. DO NOT defend yourself or try to prove to her that you aren’t. In fact, the best response is to just smile and say “Is it that obvious?” and proceed with the conversation as if it was never said.
There are various other indicators of interest that some dating gurus recommend looking out for such as body language, eye contact, and verbal cues. But when someone asks me “how to tell if a girl likes you” these are the 5 signals I recommend they look out for.
How to Tell if a Girl Likes You
Hope you enjoyed these tips on how to tell if a girl likes you. One thing I will say is that over analyzing the situation can actually cause her to lose interest in you. This is because your insecurity about “making your move” is actually turning her off. Rather than spend all day trying to figure out what she’s thinking, you’re much better off doing all the things that you know will attract a girl.
