23 Signs A Shy Girl Likes You & Signs She’s Not Into You
No doubt girls are often mysterious and that makes it much more difficult to figure out whether or not a girl has her eye on you and is just playing the shy card, or she just isn’t interested.
Here we shed some light on this dilemma with expert proven pointers that tell you whether that shy girl really does like you.
Normally, it’s the guy that tends to make the first move and that’s a heck of a lot of stress, particularly if the girl is shy.
Let’s get started figuring out the mysteries of the shy girl!
Signs a Shy Girl Likes You
Suddenly She Will Be Dressing Differently
Trust me with this one. If a girl really likes you, she will put her best foot forward to try and impress you with her wardrobe. So if you happen to notice the girl you like is dressing up a notch or two, you need to take that as a signal she likes you.
Out Comes The Makeup
Whether this girl normally wears makeup or is Plain Jane, if she likes you, she will put in a little extra effort in the makeup department. Pay attention to see if she’s getting her face all prettied up for you or not.
Beware that true shy girls normally don’t wear any goop on their face because they don’t want to draw any attention to themselves. However, if you notice she is wearing a little bit, that’s a pretty strong indication she really likes you.
When You Stroll By Her Friends You’ll Feel The Giggling
A sure sign a shy girl likes you is if you happen to walk by some of her friends and you hear the “hush-hush” whispering and giggling. Try not to get worried because this just means her friends already know she likes you and they are obviously happy about it.
Go with your first gut vibe and you’ll do just fine.
If her friends are openly teasing you and poking fun at you then you better get set to get together for real with this girl. Her friends are likely just fishing for information to see if you do plan to actually ask her out or not.
The balls in your court with this one, just take it as a positive sign.
She Asks To Help You In Little But Meaningful Ways
Some girls take time to warm up to the fact they actually like a guy and there’s nothing wrong with that. And one way she might show you she likes you is to ask you in a very subtle way whether you need help with certain things.
She might offer to help you with your project or pick something up for you. This just says she is searching for ways to spend more time with you, minus the pressure.
You better take action with this one.
Caught In The Headlights
If a shy girl likes a guy, one way she’s going to show this is to get caught looking at you. Whether this is intentional or not really doesn’t matter because if she didn’t like you, she wouldn’t be paying any attention to you, right?
When you catch her doing this, please approach her and maybe even ask her out. Sometimes you’ve just got to seize the moment and go for it.
She Loves Your Cheesy Jokes
Girls know that a man needs his ego stroked from time to time and laughing at your jokes is one way to do this. If a girl is laughing at your jokes, it just means she’s paying attention and wants to learn more. That’s pretty magical if you ask me.
Talk To The Hand
This is a weird but true signal a shy girl might like you. If she starts ignoring you, this means she either really likes you or has a hate-on for you. Maybe she’s avoiding you because she is just too afraid of rejection?
This is something you’re going to have to figure out for yourself.
The Texting Just Doesn’t Stop
Thank goodness for technology in this instance. You see, most shy girls don’t want direct contact immediately and that’s why texting is so great. After she gets your number and starts texting, she can start to get comfortable without becoming too vulnerable.
This seriously means she’s got feelings for you or she just wouldn’t bother.
Go with it and who knows what tomorrow will bring.
Social Media Following
When a shy girl is following you on your social media accounts, this is a bright sign she likes you. This is her way of trying to get your attention without taking too much risk.
Super cute and super sweet.
Your Friends Slowly Become Her Friends
If a shy girl really likes you, chances are she’s going to try and get to know your friends before she reaches out to touch you. Again, she is looking to get closer to you without too much attention, and this route works.
Also, if she can find a way to get your friends to like her, this is another avenue she can use to let them know she really does like you. Kind of weak if you ask me, but that’s just the way shy girls seem to roll.
This Girl Seems To Be Much More Interested In Your Passions
One clear-cut sign a shy girl likes you is she is going to make sure she makes an appearance at the things that matter to you.
-If you play basketball she will show up at your games
-If you go to a certain coffee shop regularly, she will start to go there too
-If you work at the grocery store, she will suddenly start shopping there on your shifts
All this girl is trying to do is show you that she is open to liking the things you do and she really is trying to get you to notice her.
This is going to help make your connection stronger…Way to go!
Twirls Her Locks Around You
When a girl is playing with her hair, she is unconsciously flirting with you in a safe way. This doesn’t mean she wants you to come up and talk to her face to face just yet. But it does mean she wants you to notice her.
Accidentally On Purpose She Makes Physical Contact
It really is tough to flirt with a girl that’s shy. If a shy girl finds a way to touch your arm, shoulder or back, she is definitely into you. How much will only unfold in due time.
This Girl Is Into Teasing
Back in the day I used to punch the guy I liked – Lol. Now it seems if a shy girl likes a guy, she will start teasing him to capture his attention.
If this girl is playfully teasing you, it means she really wants to flirt with you but doesn’t want to make it too obvious. Weird but true.
She Makes A Point Of Complimenting You
Many experts concur this is the most simple and effective signal a girl is into you. She will give you subtle little compliments that give you the heads up she really does like you. Beware…These compliments aren’t going to be too dramatic or in your face because that’s not how shy girls operate.
A clear-cut signal she wants to know more about you, for you.
Hidden Signals A Girl Really Likes You – Even If She’s Giving You The Cold Shoulder
What you need to understand straight up even if the shy girl isn’t giving you the time of day, you can’t assume she’s not interested in you head to toe.
The Truth – Most men are not good at figuring out whether or not a girl likes them. In other words, they fail in figuring out if the shy girl likes them or not and why.
Men get confused because women think differently than guys and usually that leaves the men guessing, unable to read the signals.
Here are a few concrete signals most guys miss that tell them straight up a girl is into them, shy or otherwise.
She Hold the Eye Contact Longer than Normal
This isn’t just about making the critical eye contact. When a girl holds the eye contact longer than normal, you know for sure she is interested in you on more than a friend level.
Don’t take the chance and assume she isn’t interested, because that’s going to come back around and bite you hard in the butt!
Think positive here and when a girl gives you “that look” and holds it, you better step up to the plate and take action or you will regret it…just saying.
Her Eyes are Smiling
When a shy girl smiles with her eyes, from the inside out, she is telling you with solid body signals that she likes you.
Smiling is a pretty obvious sign a gal likes you but when her eyes are smiling, that’s just plain magical. This is past the point of just being friendly and you need to pick up on this.
Again, you need to follow your gut on this one and go for it!
She Sticks Close to You
If you’re in a hot spot like a bar or party, and a girl gets close to you and makes sure she stays close. Shy girls are normally less likely to start the conversation with a guy, so instead they make themselves “available.”
They set you up to notice them and make it easy for you to approach them.
When a girl strolls up beside you in a bar, take that as an opportunity to start chatting or perhaps even buy her a drink.
The Touches are Perfect
If you are at the stage where you actually make physical contact, a gal that likes you might reach out to touch your hand, chest or back.
When you crack a joke, she will use this as an opportunity to playfully touch you.
NEWSFLASH – If a girl likes you, she might also “accidentally” run into you at a bar or party…be ready.
Get Set for the Dance Move
When a girl likes you, she might start dancing like there’s no tomorrow to capture your undivided attention. I’m not saying this is always the case, but more often than not it is. The same sort of thing as a guy typically trying to show off his money, sports or business skills to you.
Make notice that if the girl you have your eyes on is with a pack of girls and she’s dancing with herself, that’s your signal to get over there and strike up a conversation. In the least, you need to take notice of her and make sure she knows it.
The Feet Just Never Ever Lie
This all comes down to trusting the experts in body language and beyond. These are the people that put their heart and soul into studying the natural tendencies of people who are romantically involved, or at least have the potential to.
What these specialists say is that if a girl’s feet are pointed toward you, even if she’s not gazing into your loving eyes, then she’s likely interested in you. Open your mind to this, and add it to your signals of a girl liking you.
The Talk Connection is Still in Full Force
It really doesn’t matter what stage you are at. If a girl is conversing with you, returning your texts and phone calls, well, she’s telling you that she wants to learn more.
If she wasn’t interested, she wouldn’t be paying any attention to you.
Unfortunately most men are programmed to read too much into things and assume the worst. Stop focusing on her words, and take comfort in the fact she has replied to your emails and texts. That should be enough to show you she’s interested.
Don’t make the mistake of psyching yourself out. If she is paying any attention to you, then she’s interested and it’s up to you to take action and see where it leads.
On the flip side of the coin, it’s important you are aware of obvious in-your-face signals a girl just isn’t into you at all!
Concrete Signs She’s Not Into You
Love Panky experts have some practical take-action advice that will help you see for real when a gal just isn’t into you.
What does that mean?
It’s time to move on.
I’m not about to argue the fact that girls are ridiculously crazy sometimes to figure out…a puzzle if you will.
There aren’t any two women who are exactly alike and the rules change with each one, which of course makes it hard for boys to figure out.
However, there are a few telltale actions that signal to you a girl is really not into you and that means you need to kick her straight to the curb and back off.
You deserve, never forget that.
There are girls that give you the signals right out of the starting gates they aren’t interested in you, and others are subtle and extremely indecisive. Sorry about that, but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
The Eye Contact Just isn’t There
When a girl can’t actually look you in the eye, even for a millisecond, you’ve got to process that as her not liking you.
If a girl looks at you the same way she is looking at her girlfriends, then I’m sorry, she’s just not into you.
However, if you notice she is looking at you differently than everyone else, you might still have a chance.
Excuses are Her Norm
This one just totally sucks. Many women are just too afraid of hurting a boy’s feelings to openly tell them they are not interested. This is a bit of the maternal instinct kicking in but that doesn’t make it right.
If she is one for making excuses about seeing you, then you need to take action and move forward without her.
Remember, you deserve.
She Seems Bored or Distracted
If you are finally out on a date with her and she seems preoccupied or bored with you, then she’s just not that into you. If she has her arms crossed, is looking away from you or leaning outward, this very well could be a pity date.
Don’t let her get away with it please. If you notice she is just not paying attention to you, then you need to take a stand and shift forward without her.
Trust me, if she really does like you, she will come running.
It’s Never Ever You with Her Solo
One extremely straight forward signal a girl really isn’t into you is that she feels she has to bring her friends all the time. In other words, she’s not willing to meet you one-on-one.
That’s just totally lame.
When she has friends with her that help her feel less guilty about going out with you, but not really liking you the way she should.
Not fun, but sometimes that’s the reality.
You are Simply Introduced as a Friend
This one is just awful but more often is a solid signal this gal isn’t interested in who you are.
Don’t feel too bad though because if this “friend” introduction is delivered with a wink, giggle or smile, it just might mean that she’s a little shy and afraid of commitment, but still sees potential.
That’s a good sign.
She’s Always Talking About Other Men
This one can mean a couple of different things. She’s either not into you at all, or she just doesn’t want you to compete with the competition.
Both of which are nasty bad by the way.
She Loves Wearing Her Lounge Clothing
I’m not going to lie, some women just aren’t going to get dolled up for anyone. However, most girls are looking to make an effort in their appearance when they are trying to impress a man.
This might mean they put on a dress, get their hair done, or perhaps even put on some makeup.
It really doesn’t matter but if a girl is willing to see you with her hair uncombed, wearing her scrubs with no makeup, it’s safe to assume she just isn’t into you at all.
She Just Doesn’t Like You Sending Her Gifts, Period
If a girl is questioning the little gifts you give to her, then she’s not into you, sorry. If she likes you, she is going to blush and thank you for it whether she is comfortable or not with your gesture.
She Talks About the Guy of Her Dreams to You and it’s Nothing Like You
Most women aren’t going to tell you straight up you aren’t the one they want. They are going to skirt around the issue.
If this girl you have your eyes on, starts talking to you about the guy she thinks is perfect, including the body type and salary, and that’s not you, then you need to dig deep and accept the fact she does not want you.
If you are looking to capture the undivided attention of that shy girl, you are going to have to pay attention to all the signals.
*Pay attention to her body language and what she’s saying.
*Also make sure you are aware of the signals a girl just simply isn’t interested in you.
Again it’s a puzzle. Any relationship in the beginning is.
Use these tips and tricks and make sure you find what you deserve.
