Men aren’t that different than women regarding this topic. Women all spend their time thinking if another person likes us, unsure of what to do. They’re only human. But the way best way to answer the questions, “does she like me” is to watch what she does and how she behaves.

Now, this doesn’t mean she’ll admit to her feelings. She may be showing you all the signs, however, something inside her won’t let her move forward.

But that’s not the point. You first want to get to the point where you can know that she’s attracted to you. Then you can worry about the rest after.

32 ways to stop asking “does she like me?” and get your answer!

Remember, fellas. All you have to do is keep your eyes open. Don’t complicate things. As the saying goes, “actions speak louder than words.”

There’s a reason that saying is so popular… because it’s true. But you still need to be realistic and not fool yourself. So here are some ways to know if she’s into you.

1. She’s hanging around

Girls don’t hang around with guys that they’re not interested in. Sure, they have their male friends, but if you’re a new guy, there’s no way she’s spending time with you if she doesn’t feel anything.

It’s not going to happen. People only spend time with those they find worthy of giving their time to. [Read: How to make a girl like you without even asking her out]

2. She carries on the conversation

She may be shy in the beginning, however, that doesn’t mean she’s not interested. If you’re wondering, does she like me, you have to give her some time to relax and open up.

Now, if she never does open up, then that’s different. However, if she’s the one carrying on conversation and engaging, then that’s a good sign that she’s interested in what you have to say. [Read: How to tell if a shy girl likes you – All their secrets revealed]

3. All about the laughs

If she’s laughing at even your bad jokes, then that’s a great sign she’s into you. If a girl is not interested in a guy and he cracks a lame joke, the most he’ll get is a pity smile – that’s right, a pity smile.

But if she’s tearing up from laughing at your jokes, she really finds you funny. And women love funny guys! [Read: How to be funny – 28 must-know tips to make everyone love your humor]

4. It’s in the eyes

If you stop looking at a girl’s boobs for two seconds and move your eyes up, you can actually see her interest in you.

Her eyes will sparkle when she’s listening to you talk or when she’s looking at you while laughing. You’ll see it. You just need to look. [Read: 37 body language cues to instantly know if a girl is interested in you]

5. She acknowledges you

If girls don’t like you, then you might get a “hi” if you’re lucky. For the most part, they’ll ignore you. But if she acknowledges you and makes eye contact with you from across a room and gives you attention, well, then it’s only a matter of time.

6. All smiles

If she can’t stop smiling around you, well, come on, she’s one happy girl. If girls don’t like the guy, you’ll be lucky if they even crack a smile. But if they’re really into you, their faces will be sore by the end of the day.

7. Her friends know about you

Yeah, well, girls don’t tell their friends about guys that they are not interested in. Honestly, there’s no point. They talk about guys that they are potentially interested in.

So, if her friends know about you, she’s been talking. And this definitely answers your question, “does she like me?”

8. She relaxes around you

This will take some time, but if you notice her acting less tense and more natural, then that’s a good sign that she’s becoming comfortable. Maybe she’ll tell you her bad jokes or accidentally burp in front of you and laugh it off. [Read: Friend zone or interested? 15 signs to decode your crush’s behavior]

9 She touches you

She’s not going to rub your package… it doesn’t work like that. But she will touch your arm while she laughs, or maybe she’ll give you a back massage.

If she takes the initiative to touch you, then she’s interested. No girl would touch a guy who she doesn’t like. That would be egging him on.

10. Asks if you have a girlfriend

She probably won’t ask you straight up, but she’ll most likely say something like, “Oh, I bet your girlfriend laughs all the time at your jokes.”

Bam. That’s it. That’s the ticket. She’s fishing to see what your status is. [Read: 26 subtle signs she wants you to ask her out]

11. Revealed personal information

We’re not talking about her SIN number or her credit card pin. Maybe her parents divorced when she was young and that traumatized her or her grandma recently died.

You don’t tell this information to people you just met or don’t trust. If she opens up to you about this, then she trusts you.

12. She’s fully present when around you

Her phone isn’t being checked every two seconds and she’s not ignoring you while she’s talking to her friends. No, no, no. She’s fully present, her phone is put away, and she’s engulfed in conversation with you. That is someone who likes you.

13. You two text and are active on social media

If she’s texting you and liking your statuses on social media, that’s great. Sure, you would not have known that social media would be an indicator for knowing if she likes you, but it is.

If you’re the one who’s always texting her and liking her posts, stop and see if she starts texting you instead. If she doesn’t, then she’s not really interested in you. [Read: 28 really obvious signs that a girl likes you over text]

14. She teases you

This is called flirting. If she’s flirting with you and teasing you playfully, that’s a great sign. Flirt back and see what she does. Don’t be shy to flirt back, it’s a great way to build up sexual tension between the two of you.

15. She wants to be close

If you guys are hanging out, she may be walking close to you or sitting beside you without much light in between you guys. And that’s a good thing.

Girls like to be close to people they feel safe and secure around. The same goes for guys as well. If she likes you, she’ll want to be close to you.

16. She hints at hanging out one-on-one

She may suggest there’s some new movie that she’d like to see or that she loves going to the beach. That’s your “in.” That’s the moment that you have to grab the opportunity.

So, if she says things like that, then suggest the two of you go and see her reaction. [Read: Should I ask her out? 30 ways to know if she wants you to]

17. She doesn’t reject anything sexual

Well, this is a solid sign and certainly answers your question, “does she like me?” If you go to kiss her and she doesn’t dodge you… then go for it.

If she kisses you back, then that’s a great sign. If she doesn’t turn down any sexual moves on your end, then obviously, you shouldn’t be worried about whether she likes you or not!

18. If she has to cancel, she immediately reschedules

Let’s say you either had a date planned or just a “hangout,” if she has to cancel for some reason, she immediately asks you to pin down another day you can do it. If she didn’t like you, she would leave you hanging and wondering.

19. She compliments you

If she’s always saying things like how she loves your eyes, your hair, your muscles, or how smart you are, then she is trying to let you know that she is noticing you.

No, she’s not just being nice. She’s hinting that she likes you. [Read: Decoding compliments – 50 cute words and their true meaning]

20. She dresses up for you

Girls can be slobs too, you know. They can go around with no makeup and sweats and be perfectly comfortable.

But if she’s always dressing up, doing her hair and makeup, and looking her best when she’s around you, then it’s because she wants to impress you.

21. She plays with your hair

If she finds some excuse to touch your hair or run her fingers through it, that is a very intimate gesture. Women don’t do that unless they want to touch your head and get her hand close to you. 

22. She tries to keep in touch on a daily basis

When a girl doesn’t like you, then she has no need to keep in touch with you on a daily basis. So, if it’s obvious that she’s trying to keep conversations going, that is a good sign.

She doesn’t want you to have an opportunity to forget about her. [Read: Texting etiquette and flirting – 26 rules guys and girls must follow]

24. She posts photos with you on social media

Whether you are just friends or if you’re newly dating, if she is taking photos of you and posting them on social media, it’s because she wants people to know about you.

She wants people to think that you are a big part of her life because she’s proud to be with you – and this also answers your question, “does she like me?”

25. She knows things about you that you haven’t told her

If she says things like, “I bet you had a good time with your family on vacation last month!” but you didn’t tell her that you went, then that is because she has been snooping on your social media or asking around to your friends. She wants to know everything about you! [Read: How to stalk on social media and find just what you’re looking for]

26. She always lets you know when she doesn’t have any plans

27. She mentions movies or concerts she wants to see
