A PSA To All Men: Here Are The Signs A Woman Wants You To Notice Her

Attention all men, we’re going to tell you exactly what to expect when a woman is interested in you. It seems like a lot of the time, you don’t even notice unless she spells it out for you.

However, some women still prefer to show you rather than tell you, especially when they’re not sure if you feel the same too. Here’s how to tell.

She Laughs At All Your Jokes

Let’s face it, we both know that you’re really not that funny. If she’s actually laughing at all your jokes, odds are she has rose-colored glasses on that make you a comedian in her eyes.

Plus, a lot of it can be a result of nervous giggling from being around the person she’s crushing on.

She Physically Gets Closer To You

A woman doesn’t have to come sit directly in your lap to show you she’s interested. Instead, she’ll find excuses to be in the same room as you, then to talk to you, then to sit beside you, then to break the touch barrier and softly brush her arm against yours.

It’ll probably be a gradual process so that she feels comfortable.

She Subconsciously Mirrors You

It is said that when a person is attracted to you, they will unconsciously imitate your body language. They might mirror your gestures, speech patterns, or attitudes.

Watch to see if she sits in a way that faces you, especially where her feet point towards you.

She’ll Look You Right In The Eyes

They do say that eyes are the windows to the soul. If a woman looks into your eyes for more than three seconds, chances are she got lost in them for a second.

It’s natural to want to look at what appeals to the eye. If you can hold eye contact long enough, you might even notice her pupils dilating.

She’ll Ask For Your Help

It’s no secret to women that you often need to have your masculinity validated by feeling like their savior.

When a woman asks for your help, it won’t necessarily be because she needs it or can’t do it herself, but because she likes you and wants to spend that time with you. It could even be because she knows it’s something you’re passionate about.

She Makes Time For You

There aren’t enough hours in the day these days. Between her full-time job and her seven-step skincare routine, it’s hard to find time for anything.

If she’s also making time to actually speak to you and spend time with you, then she probably sees your potential and finds you worthy of her time.

She Notices When You’re Not There

When a woman likes you, even just knowing she’s in the same room as you can make her feel giddy and nervous. She probably scans the room when she first enters to see if you’re there.

If she notices your absence, then you can rest assured that she’s thinking of you.

Her Friends Know Who You Are

Women often go to each other for advice and opinions, or simply just to swoon. They’ll show each other pictures of their crushes on their social media and get the whole groupchat to help them type their next response.

By the end, they feel like they personally know you as well. This could explain why all her friends recognize you.

She Plays With Her Hair

She might not even notice, but this is very common in women’s body language. If it’s done on purpose, then it signals her intention to want to get a little flirty with you.

If she doesn’t even realize she’s doing it—it’s a reflection of the nerves she feels from being around someone she finds attractive.

She Draws Attention To Her Mouth

She won’t literally point to her mouth, but she might start reapplying chapstick, biting her lips, drinking from a straw, or holding her hand on her mouth.

This is usually a projection of her desire to kiss, or at least a reflection of her thinking about it.

She Asks For Your Opinion

This indicates that she actually cares what you think and values your perspective.

It is also a way for her to get to know you better so that she can determine if you’re a match worth exploring further or making a move on.

She Moves Her Hips When She Walks Around You

She’s walking the walk! This means she’s probably swaying her hips in a way that makes her look like she’s strutting.

She may not even be doing it on purpose. It’s simply her attempt to feel confident, feminine, and sexy while she walks near someone she’s attracted to.

Her Voice Gets A Little Higher In Pitch

Listen to see if her voice sounds higher or happier when you’re around. Not only can this be a sign of nerves, but also of attraction.

They say that women naturally sound younger, happier, and more feminine when they’re in the company of a man they’re attracted to.

She Trusts You With Intimate Details

Contrary to the common belief that women are emotional beings who love to talk about their feelings, it’s actually quite difficult for women to feel safe enough to be vulnerable and open up.

Many of them have built up walls to protect themselves, so if she breaks them down around you, it shows that she finds comfort and safety in you.

She Makes Tentative Plans With You

If she keeps mentioning a great ice cream place she thinks you’d like, or proposes making you study notes, this is her attempt of working her way up to asking you out.

Rather than completely waiting for you to do it, she’s making plans to test if you’re willing to go along with them.

You Make Her Blush

They say that there are three reasons why women blush when they’re with someone they’re attracted to: admiration, eagerness, anxiety.

Women blush as a response to feeling “exposed,” perhaps because they can’t hide their smiles around you.

She’s Always Curious About What You’re Up To

Since you’re always on her mind, sometimes she can’t help but wonder if you’re spending time with other women.

However, she’s also genuinely curious as to how you spend your day as she imagines what it would be like if you were spending it together.

She Complains To You About Other Men

She tells you all about her failed dates and bad experiences, hoping that you wouldn’t be the one to repeat them.

Part of her hopes you’ll be the one who steps in and changes that for her.

She Literally Glows

People physically look happier and healthier when they’re in love. They can thank the love chemicals that flood the blood for their glowing appearance.

Plus, they say that when you like someone, your pores open up, and allow more oil secretion. This makes the skin shinier.

She Thinks You’re A Great Friend

We hate to tell you this, but all these signs could also mean that a woman just really values you as a very good friend. So rather than sit here and wonder further, we suggest you just take a risk and respectfully ask her out.

This will be the only way you truly find out her intentions.
