Top 10 Signs She Likes or Wants You

Does She Like You?

How do you know when a girl likes you? This question pops up in a lot of people’s minds when they are very close with someone they like. Here are some of the most reliable signs that can help you decide whether a woman is interested in you.

Take into account that some women are more social than others. Some people are shy and are less likely to initiate conversation or call you because of nervousness. A helpful tactic is to observe how she interacts with other people when you are together. If she treats everyone the same way, she probably doesn't think of you differently, but if you notice her smiling at you more, glancing at you, and talking more with you than with others, that is definitely a good sign.

OK. Let’s begin. Here is a quick look at the signs. Down below I go into more detail.

What Does It Mean When She Smiles or Looks a Certain Way

Note: All of these signs could also be indicators of friendship, so go with your gut or ask a friend if you need a second opinion. You could always just be forthright with how you feel as well.


1. She turns to look at you when you walk by or makes eye contact.

This isn't fool-proof. Some women are just friendly.

2. She smiles at you.

Again, some women are just friendly. If she's really into you, you might see a sparkle in her eyes.

3. She starts the conversation.

Keep her interest by chatting and laughing as if you've known her a long time.

4. She loves your jokes (or often laughs).

This is a great sign! Keep doing what you're doing and laugh at her jokes too.

5. She asks you questions about activities.

If she asks what you get up to, this could be a way that she is asking to be invited along.

6. She compliments you.

This is a very good sign, since this doesn't happen very often.

7. She talks about sex.

She might be hinting that she is attracted to you.

8. She initiates physical contact.

Touching her own chest, hair, or lips is also a positive interest indicator.

9. She makes you gifts.

If she makes you a gift, you should definitely make a move.

10. She calls or writes you often.

If she's regularly contacting you (via text, social media, or phone call), this is a very good sign.

She smiles at you.

She smiles at you.

Top Ten Signs She Wants You

1. She Turns to Look at You

If you walk by or look at her and she looks back, that's the first sign that she might be interested. If she looks into your eyes, that's even better. Be aware that some women are just friendly. A single glance is not necessarily a sign of physical attraction. Be careful when you are judging people based on their body language signs, and always make sure to listen to their words as well.

2. She Smiles at You

In body language, a smile means "welcome.” That is why shop owners and retailers will welcome you into their store with a smile. A smile gives a good feeling and a warm welcome. If she smiles at you when you go, or she smiles a lot when you talk to her, it’s a very good sign.

Bonus: If she really enjoys your company, you might even see a sparkle in her eyes. This is a very strong sign that you've won her favor! This glow is often related to couples who are madly in love, so it's a good goal to achieve.

She enjoys talking with you.

She enjoys talking with you.

3. She Starts the Conversation

It's a little unusual for a woman to approach a stranger. If she does that, either she is very sociable or she is very interested in you. If she approaches you with the phrase, "I think I have seen you somewhere before," that's a good sign! If she asks open-ended questions that require more than a yes or no answer, it means that she wants to prolong the conversation.

As a rule, when a woman approaches you, for whatever reason, see this as a positive sign of interest and try to continue the conversation by chatting and laughing as if you've known her for a long time. The ease of conversation will take over, and she'll find herself wanting to see you again. (This is where your Facebook account comes into play!)

4. She Loves Your Jokes (or Often Laughs)

A woman who laughs a lot during your conversation or often laughs at your jokes obviously likes your company very much! Whatever you're doing, keep doing it, and make sure to listen and laugh at her jokes as well.

5. She Asks You Questions About Activities

Does she ask what activities you like? If she raises many questions about a particular activity, that may be her way of saying that you should invite her along. If she asks you about the movies you like, perhaps she would like an invitation to see a movie together.

Does she ask if you like dancing? Try inviting her to go dancing with a friend(s) and see her reaction. Be creative when you plan an activity with her for the first time, and remember to pay attention to her reactions and what she wants to do.

She initiates physical contact.

What Does It Mean When She...

6. She Compliments You

\Women have very little practice complimenting men. Women often give compliments to each other; but when a woman compliments a man, it is generally a very good sign. Whether it's a compliment to your looks, your clothes, or your personality, appreciate the comment and see this as a good sign of interest!

7. She Talks About Sex

Some women love to talk about what excites them sexually. They want to show their wild side a bit by doing this. Don’t be shocked; remember that women, on the whole, love sex as much as men do.

8. She Initiates Physical Contact

A woman who touches you when she speaks probably likes you. She might lean against you or touch your arm or knee. Usually, a woman who initiates physical contact is comfortable with you and might want to go further. If she touches herself, especially at the upper chest, neck, lips or hair, this could also mean that she wants to seduce you. So, that also counts as a sign!

She texts or calls you a lot.

She texts or calls you a lot.

9. She Makes You Gifts

Women are very keen to express their feelings via little tokens such as gifts. When she makes you cookies or a card, it shows she is willing to spend some time making you happy. If she makes you a gift, you should definitely make a move.

10. She Calls You or Writes You Often

When a woman is truly interested in you, you will notice that the number of calls/texts/little notes you receive will increase with time. This is because she wants to know how you are doing and that you are OK. If this is happening, you can freely express how you miss her. For example, if you went out of town to attend some important commitment. You can say, “It’s a boring journey. Wish you were here with me right now!” Check her reactions. If the signs are good, let your feelings speak for themselves.

Note: Be careful not to misread the actions of a friend as something more. If you're unsure, that's OK. Maybe she is, too. Not everyone knows exactly how they feel all the time.

Now you know how to recognize the signals of a woman who is interested in you, it’s time to practice what you have learned. Don't be afraid to talk to a girl or even ask her out. Good luck!
