Before opening your eyes to the truth and reading between the lines, think about how you’re going to handle it when you find out. Will you ask her out? Will you flirt a little?

Think it through before you find out and then you’ll be prepared. However, do also be prepared for the possibility she doesn’t see you that way too.

How to read the signs a girl has a crush on you

1. She likes talking to you

There are times when we have to talk to guys that we’re not interested in. Sure, we chat and we’re polite, but we’re not really engaging in conversation.

But if you find she’s really invested in the conversation and listening to what you’re saying, this could be a sign a girl has a crush on you. If she’s asking you questions and giving you her opinions, then all the better.  [Read: 20 subtle signs a girl wants your attention and wants you to notice her]

2. She flirts with you

Flirting is all about building sexual tension between two people. If she’s actively flirting with you, it shows you that she’s sexually attracted to you. It’s pretty obvious when a girl is trying to flirt with you.

Maybe she’s touching your arm more often, finding excuses to touch you,  or simply playing around with her words.

If she flirts with you, she clearly sees you as more than a friend, acquaintance, or stranger. Take this as an opportunity to flirt back! [Read: How girls flirt – 15 signs she’s being more than just nice to you]

3. Her body language

Though we tend not to think about it, body language can send off huge signs as to whether or not she’s interested in you.

A girl’s body language will tell you everything you need to know on the signs a girl has a crush on you. She’ll blink quicker than normal, her pupils will dilate, and she’ll be gazing into your eyes. In addition, she’ll try to get as close to you as possible. [Read: 15 body language cues a girl gives away if she actually likes you]

4. She gets personal

She may open up to you and talk to you about her personal life. Now, she wouldn’t do that with a man that she didn’t trust and want to open up to. 

While women are all about being vulnerable and wearing their hearts on their sleeves, they’re also very guarded individuals.

So don’t expect a girl to open up to just anyone unless she seriously trusts that person or likes them. In your case, it’s probably the latter. Don’t make her feel weird when she opens up – you can also open up to her! This encourages you to form a bond.

5. She’s touchy

When she laughs, she touches your leg or arm. When you are walking, she may hug you or touch your hair. She does everything she can to break the touch barrier and get close to you as possible. If anything, this is one of the obvious signs a girl has a crush on you.

Sometimes, they aren’t even aware they’re doing it, but it’s just instinct when they like the person they’re talking to. Physical touch is a huge sign that someone is into you. [Read: 13 lusty signs of sexual attraction to keep an eye on]

6. You see her more often

If you’re looking for signs a girl has a crush on you, remember this one. Trust me, if a girl wants you to see her, she’ll do whatever she can to be around you more.

Maybe she always asks you to hang out, or she makes excuses for needing help with a certain project. If you see her around more often, she’s finding an excuse to be close to you.

7. Your conversations continue via text

You may chat together when you’re at school or work, but what happens when you come home? Does the conversation end the minute you part ways or do you guys continue texting until you fall asleep?

If she continues to text you even after she’s asleep, this is one of the signs a girl has a crush on you. [Read: What to text a girl you like – 15 ways to make her love texting you]

8. She looks at you

We all look at each other, but that’s not what I’m talking about. Does she look at you? When a girl has a crush on you, she’ll gaze at you when you’re not looking.

Using your peripheral vision, you can tell whether she glances at you or not. Also, notice how when she’s talking to you, if she gives you direct eye contact or not. [Read: 14 signs a girl is attracted to you sexually and ways to read them]

9. She’s always smiling around you

We’re not funny all the time, so don’t think that you’re the funniest guy in the world. You’re not. Sorry. But because she has a crush on you, she thinks you’re the funniest guy. It’s one of the classic signs a girl has a crush on you.

If she’s always smiling, laughing, or basically in a good mood around you, then she likes you. Especially when she always laughs at even your cheesiest jokes *even when nobody else laughs,* then she has a crush on you! [Read: How to make a girl smile – 50 things you can do to make her happy]

10. Her behavior changes

A girl’s behavior changes based on her feelings for a guy she’s around. If she doesn’t have a crush on you, she’ll keep her distance from you and act reserved.

However, if she likes you, she may get nervous around you, become quieter or louder, fidget in her seat, and speak with a stammer.

Even if she’s normally a confident person, her behavior can change into someone reserved if she likes who she’s talking to.

11. She ups her appearance

This is a classic sign that a girl has a crush on you and is trying to impress you. If she used to wear sweatpants but now is rocking a completely changed look, one that’s more sexy and flirtatious, well, she may be trying to get your eyes focused on her.

12. She compliments you

We tend not to compliment guys we’re not interested in. Let’s face it, we’re not paying attention to them. If we notice something that you’ve changed in your appearance, it means we’re paying attention to the small details.

Compliments will always go a long way when figuring out if a girl likes you or not. Now, if she verbalizes that you look nice in your new shirt or that she likes your haircut, then she’s been keeping her eyes on you. [Read: What to do when a girl likes you – The right way to make your move]

13. You hear rumors that she likes you

Ah yes, the rumor mill. Well, where there’s a spark there’s a flame. Now, we’re not saying you should follow completely what’s being said. But rumors do start from somewhere.

 If the rumors that she likes you are spreading around like wildfire, don’t you wonder why that’s the case? [Read: The ultimate covert signs to know if a girl is really into you]

14. She acts jealous when you flirt with others

Obviously, when a girl has a crush on you, then she’ll act jealous when you’re putting your attention on other girls that aren’t her. If she doesn’t have any feelings for you, there shouldn’t be any jealousy or envy seen in her actions and behavior.

Even if it’s just as simple as talking to other women, watch closely how she reacts as this will tell you everything. [Read: How to make a girl jealous and leave her craving for your attention]

15. She’s always leaning towards you

Whenever you talk to her, is her body always leaning towards you or away from you? This is a huge indicator regarding the signs a girl has a crush on you.

If her body is leaning towards you, she clearly likes talking to you and may even have hidden feelings.

16. She actively avoids you

Again, girls deal with their crushes in different ways. Some girls avoid their crushes because of the fear they’ll do something stupid or embarrassing around the guy they like. So they end up not engaging in any direct contact, including eye contact for that matter.

17. Her friends tease her around you

When a girl likes you, her friends are obviously the first people to know. So don’t just watch the way she acts, but this also goes for her friends.

Are they always whispering around you, or are her friends teasing her? They might be on to something as this is one of the signs a girl likes you. [Read: Does she like me? 32 subtle signs she sees you as more than a friend]

18. She laughs at your jokes

It is an immediate reaction women have, to smile at a guy they have a crush on, even if it’s just a physical connection. And humor is a great way to bring out that grin.

So if you make a joke or tell a funny story and she laughs, she may like you, at least a little.

19. She blushes around you

Just like you, women blush when nervous or just in the presence of someone they like. If her cheeks build a rosy hue around you, you’re in luck.

Do watch out though that what you’re seeing isn’t just makeup. If she always has a rosy glow, that isn’t a flush of nerves. But if you see it pop up when you give her a compliment, that is a surefire sign. [Read: 15 body language cues a girl gives away if she likes you]

20. She teases you for a reaction

Teasing and flirting go hand in hand. And just like pushing someone on the playground in grade school was a sign you liked them, this is the adult version. If she teases you for your style, taste in entertainment, that’s one of the subtle signs this girl may have a crush on you!

Pushing someone’s buttons just a little gets under their skin. It is a way to grab someone’s attention and interact without it getting too serious. It is a go-to flirting strategy. So it is definitely one of those obvious signs she has a crush on you. [Read: How to tell if a girl is flirting with you – 20 signs you just can’t miss]

21. She comes up with reasons just to talk to you

Depending what your relationship is at the moment, this varies greatly. If you work together she may find reasons to ask you for advice on a project, update you on an assignment, or the like. If you live in the same building she may ask to borrow coffee. And if she’s a friend, she may reach out and text you more often.

Just as she might want to physically get closer to you, finding reasons to interact with you as often as possible is a sign of a crush. So look out for extra texts. Maybe she’s tagged you in a few memes today, or stopped by with coffee for you. [Read: What to talk about on a first date to make them like you instantly]

22. She might play hard to get

This is our least favorite sign a girl has a crush on you. For some women, it works like a charm and is their go-to. But if she ignores you, rejects your offers to hang out, or takes what feels like years to text you back, she may still have a crush on you. Confusing? Yes!

We know it seems counterintuitive, but this is a thing. The hard part with this is that all of these actions could also be a sign that she doesn’t have a crush. So it is a bit like a game.

If you aren’t sure, either straight up ask or pull away. See if she shows interest. [Read: 12 signs she’s playing hard to get and wants you to chase her]

23. She suddenly develops an interest in your hobbies

If you have never heard her talk about sports, but she found out you love baseball and all of a sudden sets up a trip to a game or brings up someone’s RBI out of the blue, she may be trying to find common ground with you.

If she listened to an artist you recommended, started binging your favorite Netflix show, or just asks you a lot of questions about yourself, she is either super invested as a friend, or most likely has a crush on you.

24. She wants to be one-on-one with you

If you often hang out in a group setting, she may try to get you alone. Not in a creepy way, but if she takes you away from the party to talk or show you something she wants some privacy.

She may also invite you on a hike or a hang out away from the rest of your normal group. If you work together, she may walk to the parking lot with you or ask to grab drinks afterward. All signs she wants to see more of you away from a platonic hang out. [Read: 20 unmistakable signs your friend is crushing on you]

25. She comes right out and tells you

Sorry guys, but this felt like a necessary sign to share. Some of you can be a little dense when it comes to less-than-subtle signs. So, if she comes out with it and says “I like you,” she means it.

How many of these signs a girl has a crush on you do you recognize?

Her body language and behavior will tell you everything you need to know about her feelings.

These signs above are pretty strong indicators that she likes you and has feelings for you *that she might be trying to hide*.
