How to Tell if a Woman Likes You

In a prior article, we talked about how to tell if a woman is interested in you. This article is more about how to tell if a woman really likes you after she has gotten to know you some, and if she wants you to move forward towards a romantic relationship with her.

The point is, just because a woman shows interest in you, it doesn’t mean that you have successfully built the attraction level high enough for her to like you in a romantic way. That’s why it’s important to read her signs and that’s what we address in this article. 

Not every woman is the same when it comes to letting you know if she likes you or not. But for the most part, any of the following signs are good, and the more of them that she does, the more likely it is that she wants to have a romantic relationship with you. 

She Gets Closer

One of the things that she will do if she likes you is that she will move herself a little closer to you than normal. She might start by “invading” your space with movements of her hands while she talks. Or she could sit closer to you than she did before if sitting on a bench, for example. 

Any indication that she gets closer to you is a good sign. And if she “accidentally” brushes up against you, or touches your arm or leg, etc., those are excellent signs that she really likes you. 

She Asks About Your Past

If she asks about your past, it shows that she’s interested in you and that she’s willing to invest the time to get to know you better. The only thing to watch out for is if she starts asking about your prior girlfriends. Do all you can to avoid answering the question at first. When you start talking about what didn’t work with your exes, or the “bad things” that happened, you risk ruining a good time or mood for both of you. And she may start to relate to your past girlfriends and wonder if you are going to leave her in the future because of a similar problem. Don’t give her things to worry about. 

Women stick up for other women. It’s not a good idea to talk about your exes or her exes. The past is the past. Live in the moment. Don’t get involved in talking about negative things about the past unless you are deep into the relationship and she totally trusts you already.

She Asks About Your Hobbies, Goals and Dreams

If she asks about your hobbies, goals and dreams, what she is doing is showing you that she’s willing to invest the time and energy into getting to know you.  But you will have to figure out if she just wants to be friends or more. Sometimes women are just curious about people, but if she shows other signs of attraction, then she probably wants you to take it to the romantic level.  

Don’t reveal too much too quickly. Be a bit mysterious and never get stuck talking on the phone for hours on end without ever having a date. A lot of men get stuck in the “friend zone” with women because they appear too eager or needy.  

She Laughs at Every Joke You Tell

When a woman likes you, she lets you know in subtle ways. When a woman falls for a guy, suddenly, he can do no wrong. Suddenly, he’s the knight in shining armor and she will defend him on everything. It’s the act of seeing you through “rose colored glasses” where everything about you is perfect. 

So, she will find connection with you on as many things as possible. She will laugh at your good jokes and laugh at your bad ones. It won’t matter because she wants to send you the signal that she likes you and wants you to continue pursuing her. 

You can even have a little fun with it. Purposely tell a bad joke and see how she reacts – then, poke a little fun at her for laughing at anything you say. She’ll actually enjoy the fact that you are noticing what she’s doing and that you have enough dating/courting common sense to see what’s going on. 

She Shows More Interest in You Than Others

Let’s say that you’ve met a woman who you are attracted to, gotten to know her a little, and you’re in a social setting of mutual friends, but you’re not sure if this woman in question is romantically interested in you or not. 

One big sign is if she shows more interest in you than others. If she is shy, it could be her main way of letting you know. If she moves closer to you as we’ve already discussed, that’s a great sign. If when the group laughs and she only looks at you, that’s a great sign that she’s more than just interested. 

She Asks You to Fix Something

Women know that men love to feel needed and that they want to help the “damsel in distress.” Men are rescuers, and women like to be rescued, in general. So, if she contacts you to fix something like her car or a leaky faucet, that’s a great sign that she really likes you and wants you to take it to the romantic level. 

When she asks you to fix something, it shows that you are the one who she has chosen – and you are the one who she only wants to solve the problem. It’s a big sign – don’t ignore it, and make sure that you take it to the next level from there. Otherwise, she will think that you’re not interested in her. 

She Compliments You on a Job Well Done

After you’ve fixed something for her, if she compliments you on a job well done, that’s her letting you know that she likes you. She’s sending you signal after signal, and if you don’t act on it, you’ll miss the opportunity to date her. 

After she compliments you, it’s the perfect time to ask her out on a date. 

She Texts You First

If you exchange numbers and she texts you first, that’s a great sign that she is romantically interested in you. Although if she is shy, she may think that she must wait for you to text first. 

Regardless, the more she texts you, the better the sign. However, if she texts you a lot, never text her more than she texts you, keep them to a minimum, and instead, focus on using text messaging and phone calls for only one purpose – to set up a date. 

She Shows You Gratitude

If she compliments you by telling you how thankful and grateful she is to you for anything, that’s another great sign. It shows how she feels about you. The more positive and happier she is around you, the more likely it is that she’s putting on her best personality to get you interested enough to take it to the next level.  

She Invites You to Hang Out with Her Friends

This is a very good sign that she likes you. It shows that you are worthy of being in her inner circle of friends, but you must make sure that you are not in her “friend zone.” Make sure that she sees you as boyfriend material – not just a friend.

If she shows you other signs of attraction, then this is another great sign she wants you to take it to the next level. 

She Tells You She Has Nothing Planned

If she tells you that she wishes that she had something to do on the weekend but doesn’t, that’s basically her asking you to ask her on a date. It’s a sure sign that she really likes you and wants you to take it to the next level. If she just looked at you as a friend, she would just ask you flat out if you wanted to go somewhere with her, etc. But then again, if she is very outgoing, she may really like you and naturally have the courage to ask you on a date. 

The Best Way to Tell if a Woman Likes You

Usually, it’s not easy to tell if a woman likes you or not. But there is another option that does make it easy… 

Couple’s dancing provides the perfect way to know what the “other” is thinking and feeling for you. Unlike texting (the worst) or talking (OK), people cannot fake their true emotions when they are holding each other.

If the guy is calm, he will immediately sense what his partner is feeling for him. This is done in a very subconscious and accurate way. We feel the grip of our partner’s hands on our own hands and back. We can tell if the woman is holding on to us or pushing us back. And we can even feel how the woman responds to the moves that we propose.

In our classes, we help men and women relax and connect, so that they can truly feel their partner. If a guy or a woman is very stressed, they may be interested in someone else, and their body will send the message that they are not interested or available. In every class, we work on relaxing and letting our instincts guide us. From this point, when we are in contact, the body tells the truth and it’s very easy to read it once you are taught what to look for. 

This is why we think that Embrazo’s dance classes are so valuable. We teach men how to tell if a woman likes you in a way that keeps you from embarrassing yourself in front of her and others. 

In our classes and dance evenings, it’s actually easy to tell if a woman likes you or not. Many times, a woman has some interest in a guy, so she makes eye contact and encourages him to invite her. But then, after a few minutes of dancing together, she changes her mind. Suddenly, she will feel stiff and passive. She will kindly say “thank you” at the end and go about her own way, looking for new partners.

On the other hand, if she likes you and wants to get together more, you’re most definitely going to feel the difference.

How does she show you that she likes you? 

The woman will hold you close during the dance. She will respond nicely to your lead and add her own decorations, to make your dance together beautiful. Then, she will stay with you for just a little longer at the end of the music. She will not break the embrace immediately and get back to her seat. And of course, she will actively try to make eye contact with you during the evening to get you to invite her again.

In our opinion, Embrazo’s dance classes offer the best way to learn how to tell if a woman is interested or likes you.
