27 Clear Signs A Girl Wants You To Notice Her & Make A Move

27 Clear Signs A Girl Wants You To Notice Her & Make A Move

I’m pretty sure that all men have wondered at least once how to know when a woman likes them and wants them to approach her, and now, I’m finally going to reveal it.

Your job is to leave whatever you’re doing right now and pay close attention to these definite signs a girl wants you to notice her.

I know that it can sometimes be confusing because you don’t whether she really likes you or is just being kind to you. Unfortunately, most men misinterpret a woman’s kindness and end up thinking that it’s a good sign that she’s into them.

The truth is that when a woman wants to be more than friends with you, she’ll find the right way to show it.

She’ll start giving you more obvious hints and signs she wants you.

We all somehow believe that it’s an unwritten rule that men must make the first move. However, it’s not unusual for a woman to take the initiative. If we want to leave that part for the man we like after all, we’ll definitely find a way to make it happen faster.

I know that most men would like to have the superpower to see into a girl’s head and read her mind. They think it’s the only way to find out what she really wants and how to approach her in the right way.

No, no, no. Don’t wish for something you couldn’t handle. You don’t want to know what women think about, trust me. Whether it’s about men or life in general, you just don’t want to know our thoughts. It’s best for everyone, believe me.

The bottom line is that you can learn to recognize the signs a girl wants you to notice her and make the first move. It’s not that hard.

You’ll just have to pay attention to the little things because they matter the most. Women like to drop subtle hints when they like someone, but they won’t make it easy for you, that’s for sure.

However, with a little bit of patience, you’ll learn to recognize those hints and use them to your advantage. Those small hints can help you approach her in a way she’ll like and win her over.

27 Obvious signs a girl wants you to notice her

If you want to find out whether the woman you like likes you back, you shouldn’t miss these clear signs she wants you to notice her.

Through these signs below, you’ll also learn how to win a girl’s heart and approach the woman of your dreams.

You just need to stay with me till the end and pay close attention to what you read below.

She always dresses to impress

If a woman always tries to look her best when she’s around you, it’s a good sign that she wants you to notice her.

If she only wanted to be friends with you, she wouldn’t mind how she looks when you’re together.

It’s a fact that women like to dress well for men they like. Of course, don’t get me wrong, we do it for ourselves first because it makes us feel good about ourselves, positively affecting our self-esteem.

This sign shouldn’t be too hard to recognize. If your girl is a sports person or just likes to wear comfy clothes like sweat pants or hoodies, but you’ve noticed that she always wears dresses or fancy clothes when you’re around, it’s a pretty good sign she wants you to notice her.

Connecting through eye contact

I think both women and men are, in fact, terrified of the whole eye contact thing. We know it’s a great way to show someone we like them, but we don’t know how to do it without making it too awkward.

If you notice that the girl you like is looking in your direction more often, it’s probably because she wants to establish eye contact with you. You should look her right in the eyes for just a few seconds, and then smile at her and look away.

If you catch her smiling at you, too, it’s a great sign that  she likes you as much as you like her. Also, if she’s into you, she’ll maintain eye contact when you lock eyes and even when you look away.

Flirting through her body language

Women like to communicate through body language. You can understand so many things just from their facial expressions, gestures, and body posture.

That’s why it’s essential to pay close attention to how they behave while they’re standing close to you or talking to you.

Stacie Ikka, a world-famous dating coach, says: “When you’re flirting, which is a form of communication, body language is more important than the words that are said.”

As much as you need to pay attention to what she is trying to tell you with her body language, you also need to focus on your own because you need to send her the right signals that you’re interested in her.

You should learn the most important body language signs of a girl who’s into you. For example, if she has the ‘catwalk posture’ when you’re around, it’s a definite sign she likes you. Then, you should make sure to respond in the right way.

She plays with her hair

This is another non-verbal cue that she’ll probably give you if she wants to show you that she likes you.

She probably does this because she’s nervous and doesn’t know how to behave around you. We sometimes aren’t even aware we’re doing it.

On the other hand, some women use this as a powerful flirting tool. Most men think it’s cute and seductive.

Either way, the important thing is that in both cases, if a girl plays with her hair while she’s talking to you, it’s a very good sign that she’s interested in you, and she’s trying to be clear about it.

She turns into a shy girl around you

If you’ve known each other for a long time, maybe you’re co-workers or friends, then you probably know her and can tell if she’s truly a quiet and shy girl or if she’s like that only when you’re around.

If you’ve noticed that she’s only shy when you’re near her, it means your  shy girl likes you. Your presence makes her feel nervous because she doesn’t know how to behave around you.

Before you make a move, you should first make her feel comfortable around you. You should find a way to loosen up the atmosphere between you and show her that there is no need to be nervous around you.

She laughs at your jokes, even the bad ones

a man and a woman look at each other and laugh

If a girl you like laughs at everything you say (all of your jokes, even the lousy ones), it’s a huge sign she wants to be more than friends.

It’s an obvious hint because if your joke is terrible, she’ll probably be the only one in the room laughing at it. This might be awkward for others, but I’m sure you’ll think it’s actually very sweet.

Trust me when I say this, the more she laughs at your jokes, the more she likes you. Here’s some advice for you: just keep making her smile because the key to a woman’s heart is humor. Humor is the hottest quality a man can have.

She showers you with compliments

a man and a woman sit at a table and talk

The first time she compliments you, you won’t find it strange at all. You won’t notice that it’s a sign she wants you to notice her. You may not even notice the next few times she pays you a compliment.

However, after she starts showering you with compliments, you’ll start noticing that something is going on, and you won’t be wrong because it’s definitely a good sign she’s into you.

Also, don’t think that her compliments aren’t genuine just because she sometimes overdoes them. She does this only to make you realize that you should finally make a move.

She mirrors you

a man and a woman laughing as they watch something

One of the best signs a girl wants you to notice her is if she starts to mirror you. First of all, you need to understand that she’s doing it unconsciously, and this is something you should never resent her for, no matter how irritating it may feel sometimes.

When someone starts to imitate you, your behavior, attitude, or gestures, it’s an obvious sign of subconscious attraction.

You can think of it in this way; they start mirroring you because they’re so into you, but they’re still not ready to tell you, and this is the way their heart fights to show it to you.

She enjoys spending time with you

a man and a woman sit on the couch and talk

If she always finds a reason to be around you and to spend time with you, I think it’s a pretty obvious sign she’s interested in you.

She knows that the more you two hang out, the more you’ll get to know each other. Also, it’ll help her to show how she feels about you.

That’s a good thing because that way you’ll become friends and make a deeper emotional connection. That way, when you start a relationship, everything will be so much easier. You’ll already know each other well, which will help you to build a healthy relationship.

She tries to get to know you better

the man and woman laugh as they talk

When a girl likes you, she’ll first talk about her life, and by doing so, she’ll also make you open up and talk about your personal life too.

I’m sure you don’t want to let her think that she’s boring you to death, right? So, try to keep the conversation going and ask some intimate questions to follow-up, which will help you get to know each other better.

She’ll actively listen to you, and you’ll see after some time that she’s remembered little, irrelevant things you’ve told her about yourself.

That’s because she’s into you and she finds all things related to your personal life interesting and important.

She asks you to hang out one-on-one

If a girl invites you to go out and hang out alone, it’s a huge sign that she’s interested in you. She wants to be alone with you so you can develop a greater level of closeness.

It would also be a good opportunity for you to realize if she shows any of these signs that she’s into you. You’ll have a higher chance of doing so if you’re all alone.

If she invites you to dinner at her place, that’s it. I’m pretty sure you don’t need to look for more signs because it’s the most obvious sign she wants to be more than friends with you.

She does things she knows you like

If you’re still wondering how to tell if a girl likes you, this is a clear sign to help you figure it out. If she tries to do or make things she already knows you like, it’s one of the best signs she wants you bad.

If football is your thing and she buys you a ticket to a football match, or if she chooses a hobby she knows you also have, it’s a pretty obvious hint she likes you.

She likes to tease you

This one may be a little bit confusing because best friends also tease each other all the time. However, if she starts teasing you all of a sudden in a way she doesn’t with anyone else, that means she’s into you.

It’s a good sign that she feels comfortable around you and that she isn’t afraid or nervous when she’s around you. You should tease her too but be careful, don’t cross the line.

This also means that the bond you two have is already bigger and stronger than a friendship.

When two people feel free and comfortable enough to tease each other more often, that’s considered flirting, and it’s one of the clearest signs of attraction.

The doors to her personal space are open only for you

Most of us appreciate our personal space, and we don’t like it when our loved ones intrude on it. It’s a place that’s meant only for ourselves.

That’s why you should consider yourself lucky if the girl you like allows you to step into her personal space. It means that she trusts you already, and she feels safe with you.

You’re probably the only person who has the right to intrude on her personal space. Do you need a more obvious sign than this?

She misses you when you aren’t around

a woman talking on the phone over coffee

If she likes you, she’ll show or tell you that she misses you whenever you aren’t around. Best friends also miss each other when they’re apart, but you’ll notice that this is different.

If you’re away on a trip or something, she’ll constantly reach out to you. She’ll also repeatedly ask you when you are coming back, and she’ll tell you that she can’t wait to see you.

If you ask her directly if she misses you, she might get embarrassed, and you probably won’t get the answer you thought you would. So, let her say/show it to you in a way she feels is right.

She’ll provide lengthy explanations for some of her actions

When she hurts you or unintentionally makes a mistake, she’ll immediately apologize for it. You’ll be able to see in her face how much she regrets it.

If you’re confused about something she did, or you don’t find it right, and you confront her about it, she’ll immediately have lengthy explanations prepared to make those things clear.

This is an enormous sign that she’s into you. She wants you to have a good opinion of her, and she’ll do anything to keep it that way.

Pretending that she needs your help with something

a man and a woman sit and talk

If you’ve noticed that she asks you for help with small things that she could do by herself, it’s a huge sign she likes you more than you think.

She wants to get close to you, and this is how she’s trying to do it. She knows that it could be a good opportunity to be alone and maybe engage in deeper conversation with you.

This is probably one of the oldest techniques women use to make a man understand that they’re interested in him.

She initiates physical contact a little too often

If the girl you like is touchy-feely while you talk, it’s a great sign of  physical attraction between you two.

You should respond to it in the same way. For example, you can hug her when you see her, or you can ‘accidentally’ touch her hand while you talk.

Then, all you need is to pay close attention to her reaction. If she smiles at you, it means she likes you.

On the other hand, if she makes a weird facial expression, it means she doesn’t know why you touched her and that you shouldn’t try to do it again.

Her face turns red when another girl approaches you

When a woman likes you, she won’t like all the other women around you who aren’t a part of your family or friend circle. It’s as simple as that.

If you notice that she is jealous or that her mood changes every time another woman approaches you, it’s a definite sign your girl has already fallen for you.

As much as jealousy is deeply unhealthy, it’s also one of the best signs a girl likes you. She wants you all to herself, and she can’t stand the thought of you with someone else.

She sent friend requests on all of your social media accounts

If she wants to connect with you on all of your social media accounts, it’s a pretty clear sign that she wants to be included in what’s happening in your personal life.

She didn’t friend you just because; she did it because she wants to know more about you. She wants to know more about your family, friends, the things you do and what you like.

On the other hand, maybe she did it because it’ll make things a lot easier for her. This way, she can drop hints for you through her photos, posts, and comments. Pay attention to her activity on social media, and you’ll see.

She likes all of your status updates and photos

You’ll notice that she’ll be the first one to like your posts on social media. As soon as you post something, her like will be there. Who knows, maybe she’s added you to her Close Friends list.

She may even go all the way through your profile and like your older posts. It’s definitely one of the most obvious signs she wants you to notice her.

If you get a notification that she has randomly liked some of your photos or posts, pay attention to these posts.

Maybe she picked them randomly, but perhaps she wants to tell you something. If it’s a song or a quote, you should pay close attention to its meaning.

She replies to your texts immediately

One of the clear signs she wants you to make a move is when she always responds immediately to your messages. You can attract a girl through texting, and this is probably your greatest chance to find out if she’s really into you or not.

This means she doesn’t want to keep you waiting and that she enjoys talking to you. By doing this, she’s also showing you that nothing is more important in those moments than replying to you.

No matter how busy she is, if she’s really into you, she’ll always have time to reply to your texts. She knows her priorities, and right now, this is one of her biggest priorities because she wants to show you that she likes you.

All of her friends already know who you are

a man and a woman sitting with friends

If you notice that all of her friends know who you are without even having to introduce yourself, it means that she talks about you, and it’s a pretty good sign.

As soon as we start romantically feeling something for someone else, we immediately tell our best friend. I think that’s something that both women and men do. So, her friends definitely already know that she’s interested in you.

Also, if her friends start teasing her when you’re around, it’s probably because they know that she likes you. If that happens, just pay attention to her reaction because she’ll show if she’s into you then.

She blushes when someone assumes you’re a couple

a man and a woman greet each other with friends

If you work together, your other co-workers might start thinking that you’re together and ask you if it’s true. If you’re walking down the street, maybe smiling and holding hands, people around you may assume you’re a couple and pay you a compliment.

In situations like these, your girl will blush if she’s really interested in you. She’ll feel like she’s busted, and she won’t know how to behave.

She’ll be waiting for your reaction. So, don’t immediately deny it because it may make her think that you don’t like her and that you would never be in a relationship with her. Think hard about the best way to handle a situation like this.

Drunk confessions

Last week, I heard a great saying: “Sober feelings = drunk confessions,” and I just can’t agree with it more.

Things a sober person think and feel come to the surface when they get drunk.

If the girl you like has called or texted you drunk at least once and confessed that she has feelings for you, it’s true even if she behaved the next day like it never happened.

Alcohol didn’t make her do that; it just gave her the courage to tell you the truth. She’ll avoid you the next day because she’ll be embarrassed about it. She might even avoid you completely for the next few days.

If you see that she doesn’t want to talk about it, you shouldn’t push her. Don’t confront her about it if she doesn’t mention it first. Now you know she likes you, and you can only wait until she feels ready to talk about it.

If you go out together and you both get drunk, and she approaches you and confesses her feelings, you should only then admit that you like her too. Don’t make any moves then because that would be completely wrong.

She’ll respect you more the next day if you don’t use that situation to make a move. It’ll show her that you have serious intentions for her and that you don’t want to use her and play with her feelings.

She mentions you in some of her future plans

a man and a woman walk and hold hands

If you’re talking about the future and she mentions you somewhere in her plans, it’s a subtle sign she wants and sees you with her in the future.

Don’t ask her to explain it. Just smile and act along like you approve because you need to respond that you agree with her and that you would also like that.

Maybe she said it without being even aware of it, or perhaps she did it on purpose to see your reaction. In both cases, it’s a very good sign your crush likes you back.

She’s always there when you need her

a woman talking to a man

If she always has time for you, if she’s always there when you need it, it’s a sign that your girl has honest feelings for you and that she wants you to notice her.

Even when you get into a fight or disagree about something, she won’t stay mad at you for long. It means that she just cares a lot for you.

Another sign a girl wants you to notice her is when she becomes your number one supporter.

If your girl truly likes you, she’ll support you through everything. She’ll also encourage you to be a better man and to follow your dreams no matter wherever they may take you.

To conclude

a man and a woman sit and drink hot chocolate

I know that figuring out whether a girl they like likes them back can be a pretty challenging job for men. That’s exactly why I compiled this list of signs a girl wants you to notice her and make the first move.

With this list, you definitely won’t get it wrong or find yourself in an awkward situation. Just pay attention to her behavior when she’s around youIf she truly likes you, she’ll find a way to show you in a subtle way.

Some girls will be open and tell you directly, but most women will just drop small hints and let you figure it out for yourself.

Women are honestly more mysterious than men, and that’s something you have to accept. Even when we genuinely like someone, we enjoy playing hard to get. We want to make the man we like work hard to win us over.

If you’ve realized that your dream girl does most of these things, then you shouldn’t be here anymore. You should be with her right now, making the first move.

I really hope (actually, I’m pretty sure) you’ll win her over. Still, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you. I always root for love, just like I’m rooting for you now.
