As eye contact between a man and a woman increases, many men may think that this means that the girl is attracted to them. These encounters can occur during everyday activities, such as riding the train or buying your groceries. Those tantalizing glances and stares can mean that the girl you’re glancing back at likes you too. Perhaps a lingering look may even make them smile at you. But who knows what is going on in their mind? Who are they thinking about? The question of how you know whether a girl likes you is one that puzzles men across the world. And eye contact is just the first step.
5 Ways To Know If A Girl Likes You
1. Small Talk
In the first instance, you need to be bold enough to strike up a conversation with the girl you’re ogling from afar. This is a basic requirement; you will never get the girl if you’re too shy to go and speak to her. While talking to her, be sure to listen, and also be aware of hints and signs she might give during the conversation. While all girls are different, body language such as leaning towards you, nervousness in her voice, dilated pupils, and uncrossed legs generally all signify that a girl is into you. Also, out-of-place laughter – i.e. laughing at a really terrible joke – often indicates the girl is head over heels. Lastly, the smile: if the girl tries but fails to hide her smile while talking to you, you’re in. If a girl looks bored and uninterested, perhaps it’s better to take a step back and move on.
You should keep an eye out for signs of flirting; but not just flirting with you, but also with other people. Many women flirt naturally when talking to men, even those whom they consider just friends; it’s the women who flirt more openly and blatantly with you that probably like you. On the other side of things, if you like a girl yourself, make sure you reserve your flirting for her and her alone. Girls will not take lightly to you showing interest elsewhere.
3. Physical Contact
Look for other signs too – does she make up feeble excuses to make physical contact with you, such as hugging or touching your arm? Do these moments occur almost exclusively with you and not with other men? If the answer to these questions is ‘yes’, you’re doing well. In such instances, you have two options: respond positively, or brush her off. Some men find that leaving women wanting more is a sure-fire way to keep her interested, but careful not to take it so far that she loses interest entirely.
4. ‘Accidental’ Touching
Girls who often ‘accidentally’ bump into men are usually doing it on purpose. This is a tried and tested ancient method to get closer to the man in question. This may also include light punches on the shoulder or head. Any of these kinds of things are a sure-fire sign that she into you.
5. Eye Contact
Look at how she looks at you. If she likes you, she is more likely to gaze at you for longer periods of time, and try to turn away the moment you meet her gaze. If she averts her eyes, it’s likely that she’s into you, but too nervous at this stage to make the first move. If she doesn’t turn away, then she might be feeling bold and confident, and you should feel the same way if you decide to approach her.
