You thought you had problems seeing if she likes you in person. Now you have another challenge ahead of you: how to tell if a girl likes you through text.
Trying to see if someone is interested in you isn’t the easiest thing. Sure, some are super obvious. However, most people try to suppress their feelings and show very subtle and hidden signs.

Understanding how to tell if a girl likes you through text is vital.
How to tell if a girl likes you through text – 14 obviously flirty signs you can’t miss
I mean, really, are they trying to make us crazy? But, listen, you don’t have to freak out. You can still figure out if she’s into you, you just have to look at the signs. Shockingly, they’re not much different from being in person. Even if it’s a lot easier than standing in front of them.
#2 She starts the conversation. If she starts the conversation, then that’s a great sign. We like being chased. However, if we’re interested in you, we have no problem saying hi. If she never starts a conversation with you, she’s probably not into. So, try backing off and wait for her to come to you.
#3 She all about the emoticons. I know, it’s silly, but emoticons are actually good indicators for attraction. Now, if she’s one of those girls that uses a smiley face after every second word, don’t look deeply into it. But if every now and then she gives you a kissy face or smiley face, it’s a sweet touch.

#4 Look at her replies. What are her replies like? Is she just saying “k” or “lol”? If so, come on man, it’s time for you to cut your losses, you’re being played. If you’re wondering how to tell if a girl likes you through text, it’s all about the little details.
#5 She asks you questions. Does she ask you questions about yourself or what you’re doing? If so, she tries to get to know you and see what type of person you are. She wouldn’t do this if she wasn’t interested, so take this and use it to your advantage.
#6 She teases you. This is flirting, people! So, if you don’t jump on the opportunity, I can’t help you. If she’s teasing you over text, she’s flirting. What you need to do is flirt back. What could go wrong? You’re at home on your couch, she’s not in front of you, so there’s no need to be nervous. [Read: 8 big hints a girl drops when she wants you to make a move]
#7 Focus on the topics of your conversations. What are you two actually talking about? If she’s writing you, what is the topic? Is it about you or her or what needs to be done for homework? Just because she messages you, doesn’t mean she likes you. You should look at what you’re talking about.
#8 The extra letters. Yeah, I know, you’re probably thinking that it’s no big deal, but those extra y’s show you a lot. If she’s saying, “pleeeeaaaseeee” or “heyyyy,” it gives off a cute and flirty tone to her message. Keep an eye out for that and use that to flirt with her.

#9 She comments about your other social media. If she writes you about some post you put on Facebook or a photo on Instagram, she’s watching what you’re doing. You should be flattered. So, it clearly shows that not only is she talking to you, but she’s staying updated on your life via social media.
#10 She asks to hang out with you. Well, I mean, if she’s asking to spend time with you away from your cell phones, that’s an obvious sign. Women spend years talking to someone via text message and never meet them. So, if we initiate hanging out, that means something.
#11 She doesn’t wait three days to write back. If she replies relatively quickly, which is subjective, but let’s say within a couple hours, that’s a good sign. I don’t reply to people I’m not interested in. I mean, I do, but it takes me literally a week to do it. Why? Because I don’t care. I know it’s harsh, but it’s the truth.

#12 She sends you photos. Now, I’m not talking about nude photos, though, if that happens well, I don’t know why you’re reading this. That’s a clear sign she wants you. But if she sends you pictures of what she does day-to-day or a picture of something that reminded her of you, that’s a good sign.
#13 She laughs. But I mean an actual laugh, not that “lol” or “lmfao” crap. That’s now just a replacement for saying “k.” If she actually writes out “hahaha,” that’s a good sign she genuinely found what you said to be funny. And, remember, girls love a guy who makes them laugh. [Read: 50 flirty text messages that are sure to make her smile]
#14 She actually replies. Now, this is a great sign. Does she actually reply? Or do your conversations consist of you saying “hey, what’s up?” every other week. If that’s the case, you’re looking desperate, man. Though, just because she replies, it doesn’t mean she’s interested in you. But it’s definitely not a bad initial sign.
So, now that you know the signs about how to tell if a girl likes you through text, do you see some of them in your conversations with her? If so, great! Keep it going. If not, stop messaging her for a while. She may start a conversation. If not, there are plenty of other girls.
