Don’t Push Away a Girl Who Shows These 30 Signs She Cares About You

Not everyone shows their affection through words. Many do it through actions. Are you seeing any of these signs she cares about you?

signs she cares about you

Have you recently met a girl and think she might be someone special? You’re probably a little confused as to where her feelings stand. Don’t panic, it’s normal to experience these insecurities! The truth is that not everyone comes right out and tells you that they care or that they like you. Sometimes you have to read between the lines a little. To help you out, check out these signs she cares about you. If you notice a majority coming your way, she certainly is wanting the same thing as you.

Think about how you show someone that you care about them. It’s very unlikely that you go around just saying it.

Maybe you tell them to text you when they get home, or perhaps you like to grab them their favorite coffee ‘just because.’ These are all ways we show that we care.

Subtle yet powerful signs she cares about you

If you want to meet someone on the same page as you and experience the deep connection only love can bring, your journey towards finding them can be full of pitfalls.

The problem is, after a few false starts, recognizing a genuine person in your life can be tricky. And finding real, true love can be difficult.

We meet people who don’t want a relationship, people who say they do but don’t really, those who simply want fun, and those who have no clue what they want deep down.

Watch for these signs she cares about you and see where you stand. [Read: How to tell if a woman likes you – 21 subtle signs most men ignore]

1. She remembers small details about you

If you don’t mean anything to her, she wouldn’t bother remembering your birthday, favorite color, favorite meal, or the other small details which make you the person you are.

This means you’re clearly in her brain. It’s a surefire sign she cares about you. [Read: Does she love you? 15 signs she’s already head over heels for you]

2. She’s genuinely interested in how your day went

If she doesn’t care, she won’t have the slightest interest in whether your day went well or not. If she always asks how your day was, and always asks if you’re alright, etc., that’s a great sign.

3. She worries about you

Perhaps you have a headache, or maybe you didn’t sleep well the night before. Care means she will be worried about that to a degree.

Okay, she’s not going to be full-scale panicking, but she will be concerned, e.g. ‘make sure you get some sleep tonight, you look really tired.’ [Read: Healthy relationship expectations that define a good love life]

4. She will give you advice

Most girls are great at giving out advice. Is she advising you on the best way forward, especially in terms of the future? This is a girl with your best interests at heart.

Sure, if you only notice this one sign then there is a possibility that it’s a friendship deal. But, add in a few more signs, there’s definitely romance in the air!

5. She wants to know about the people in your life

If she seems genuinely interested to learn about the important people you have in your life, such as your family and friends, that’s a great sign too.

She could also be trying to find out more about them so that if she gets to meet them, she can impress them. Every girl wants to impress her partner’s parents and friends! [Read: 7 clear signs it’s the right time to meet the parents]

6. She tries to help

If you have a problem, giving advice is one thing but actively doing something to help is quite another.

A person who cares will jump in to help. If you notice that she actually does try and solve a problem of yours, or at least helps, that’s a sign she cares about you. 

7. She’s happy when you’re happy

A girl doesn’t need to be an empath to pick up on your bad moods or other emotional cues. If you’re in a bad mood or feeling down, she’ll reflect it.

On the flip-side, when you’re happy, she’s happy, and that’s a true sign of affection.

8. She acts selflessly around you

A girl who cares about you will put your happiness a little in front of her own, not completely, but she will want you to be the one smiling.

This can be something big or small, like giving you the last piece of chocolate cake, or missing out on a party because she knows you need her help with something. [Read: The signs of a healthy relationship you should always look for]

9. She encourages you to achieve

If she cares about you, she will want you to achieve and do great things in your life. She encourages you to go for opportunities and try new things. She will feel proud of you and be your biggest supporter.

10. She lifts you up when you’re down

Perhaps you’ve had a bad day at work. The big presentation didn’t go as well as you’d hoped. If she really cares about you, she will be the one giving you the pep talk, lifting you up, and pushing you to try again. [Read: How to cheer someone up – 36 ways to help them feel awesome again]

11. She does her best to make time for you

It’s impossible for her to drop everything for you all the time *and quite frankly, why should she?*. But a girl who cares about you will do her best to prioritize you in her schedule.

This means fitting you in whenever she can. Maybe she has a pre-arranged dinner with friends in her diary, but she’ll meet you before or afterward, just to see you.

12. She lets you know you’re on her mind

If she’s out with friends, working late, or away, you’ll probably receive texts from her. Simply to let you know that you’re on her mind.

These texts won’t be anything important, just a reason to reach out. This is certainly one of the best signs she cares about you.

13. She laughs at your jokes, even when they’re not funny

If a girl cares, she will laugh at your jokes, even if they’re terrible. She will also sit through your long stories, just because she likes to hear you talk. She likes to see you become so animated when talking about something from your past. [Read: How to be funny and make people love your company]

14. She will still make fun of you

There’s an old story that you ‘pull the pigtails of the one you love.’ That basically means that boys are mean to girls on the playground because they actually like them.

This can work for girls too! If a girl is always making fun of you in a playful and affectionate way, she cares!

15. She doesn’t play games

A girl who cares about you won’t be interested in playing games. She doesn’t want you to misunderstand or get hurt accidentally. She will reply to your texts in a timely manner and be honest with you. [Read: How to stop playing relationship games and focus on loving instead]

16. She does her best to remember the things you like and don’t like

I mentioned earlier about her remembering small details. But if she specifically remembers the things you like and don’t like, that’s a great sign.

For instance, she’ll cook a meal but she will leave out the mushrooms because you hate them.

17. She will look at you, simply because she can

If you notice your girl just looking at you with a coy smile on her face, she cares about you.

Sure, it’s also a sign of attraction, but there is a difference between looking at you with passion and looking at you simply because she wants to. [Read: What does eye contact mean to a guy?]

18. She apologizes when she is wrong

A girl who doesn’t care about you won’t bother to apologize if she does something wrong or unintentionally hurts you. One of the biggest signs she cares about you is that she will say ‘sorry’ when she knows she is in the wrong.

19. She will get angry with you occasionally

Probably over the smallest things, your girl will certainly get angry with you if she cares.

Anger is an emotion. When someone we don’t care about does something, we shrug it off. If someone we care about does something, we get upset and angry. It’s a contradiction, but it’s certainly a sign! [Read: How to be a better listener in your relationship]

20. She will always defend you

Your girl will always be your biggest supporter. If she hears someone talking about you, she will defend you to within an inch of her life. This is a surefire sign she cares.

21. She will buy you small gifts or make you something, ‘just because’

If she buys you your favorite coffee from the coffee shop just because she’s passing or she makes you a handmade gift for the sake of it, it means she cares for you.

It doesn’t have to be a big or expensive gift, just something small and it says that she’s thinking of you. [Read: 19 gift ideas for your girlfriend that are creative and thoughtful]

22. She asks for your advice

Not only is she there when you need advice, but she asks you for help and guidance too. It’s because she trusts you and respects your opinion. That’s definitely one of the signs she cares about you.

23. She makes you a part of her inner circle

She probably won’t invite you for dinner with her parents, at least not yet, but she will involve you in her circle of friends occasionally. Maybe not all the time, but you’ll be known by them and you’ll spend time with them too.

24. She calls you just for a chat

We don’t tend to speak to people on the phone these days. We’re more about texting because it’s easier and less hassle.

But, if she calls you for a conversation, for no particular reason other than she wanted to, that means she not only likes you, but she cares about you too. [Read: Why do men hate talking on the phone?]

25. She’ll always be your biggest cheerleader

We mentioned that she has your back and she encourages you, but if you’re lacking in confidence, she’s your biggest cheerleader. She will pick you up and start shouting about your strengths and your best points. She won’t leave it until you start to feel better!

26. She checks to make sure you’re safe

Sometimes ‘I like you’ translates as ‘make sure you get home safely,’ or ‘have you eaten today?’ By making sure that you’re safe and cared for, she’s showing you that she cares for you too. It’s cute, and it should make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

27. She isn’t afraid to give you tough love

Sometimes we all need a little tough love, but there aren’t that many people happy to give it. If she’s someone who does, then it’s one of the signs she cares for you.

Maybe she doesn’t like being harsh with you, but she knows that it’s for your own good. She wants you to reach your potential and to be happy and if you’re doing something which stops that, she’ll tell you about it in no uncertain terms.

28. She gets a little jealous

If she sees your ex commenting on your social media posts or a girl smiles at you as she walks past, don’t be surprised if she gets a little jealous.

She might try to hide it but you’ll notice the comments or the annoyed look on her face. It’s because she cares! [Read: How to deal with jealousy in a relationship and learn to overcome it]

29. She’s angry on your behalf

If someone does something that is an affront to you or slightly insulting, she’s likely to get angry for you. You might shrug it off and say it doesn’t matter, but she won’t let it drop.

She hates that someone has upset you or offended you. She might not go out and fight your battles for you *hopefully she won’t*, but she won’t be happy about what’s happened either.

30. She just comes out and tells you

Of course, throughout all of these signs she cares about you, probably the most obvious is when she tells you. If that happens, there’s no denying it and no need to play detective!
