So let’s paint the scene, shall we? You’re on your first date with an absolutely gorgeous girl, but she is very shy. You’ve got all these thoughts running through your head; does she like me? Am I saying the wrong thing? Is she bored?
You could come right out and ask her but then that opens the window for rejection, and no one likes to be rejected, especially face-to-face.
So what do you do? You can search online for some answers to find out if any secret signs show that a shy girl likes you? And that’s where we come in!
Shy girls are on a different level from other girls.
They will show you all the signs that you need to know, but if you don’t know them, the signs are like looking for a needle in a haystack.
A confident woman will show the obvious signs that she likes you, the signs are often used in movies and rom-com series. So you know exactly what you’re getting from them, you know exactly where you stand. Whereas shy girls are very different.
Here are some signs to look out for if you’re trying to pursue a shy girl and you want to know if she feels the same way about you.
Signs a shy girl likes you
When you spend time with someone that you have feelings for it is impossible not to smile.
The idea that you get to be in their presence and talk to them instantly puts a smile on your face even if it’s nothing special. You could be running errands, and I will guarantee that if a girl likes you she will walk around with the biggest smile on her face!
If you find that when you’re talking to a shy girl and she smiles constantly when she’s around you, this is a big sign that she likes you too. By the end of the day, her cheeks will hurt from smiling so much.
A bonus tip for you is if you smile at her from across the room before you approach her and she instantly mirrors your smile, she’s been looking at you for a while and is waiting for you to initiate conversation.
A shy girl doesn’t like to make the first move but she would mirror your actions to let you know that she also noticed you and is open for you to approach her.
Shy girls take on a more of a motherly role in all of their relationships with people. So if she offers to help you with things, even if they are little tasks that you don’t think you need help with, this is a good sign that she does like you and she wants to be there for you in any way that she can.
If you’ve been on a date with a shy girl, and you have been talking to each other for a while, one of the most common ways she will try to help you is by reminding you of things that you’ve said you need to do. For example, if you have said in passing conversation “I need to go to the store and get these groceries for my meal prep” she will remind you of this either later on that day or the next day because she thinks that is helping you.
She would also offer to go with you to the grocery store because then she gets to spend time with you and the attention isn’t on her because the reason for going to the grocery store is for you.
It’s a win-win for a shy girl, and it’s a win-win for you!
Body language is one of the most complex yet effective ways to find out if someone does like you.
If they can’t use words to express themselves, the actions, and the way their body reacts when in your presence will tell you what you want to know.
So how does a shy girl’s body language let you know if she has feelings for you or not?
Lean towards you
If you’re walking beside each other, her body will lean in towards you almost like a magnet connecting. This is because she feels comfortable around you, and she wants to be as close as possible without it being awkward.
Shy girls can be extremely nervous around people that they like because they don’t like the idea of rejection, and more than often they don’t have a lot of confidence in themselves and just assume the feelings are not reciprocated.
If she fiddles with her fingers, the hem on her shirt, or anything in her hands whilst she’s talking to you, she’s trying to calm her nerves without making it obvious.
It’s a good sign that you make her nervous because then you know that she likes you but try your best to calm her nerves as sometimes the nerves can get too much, and she could pull away completely out of fear of embarrassing herself.
One of the easiest ways to find out if a girl likes you is the way she positions her body when interacting with you. For example, if you are sitting next to each other on a sofa or sitting across from each other at a table, look at her knees. If they are pointing toward you this is a good sign, it means she’s engaged in the conversation and feels comfortable around you.
If her arms are relaxed by her side this is also a good sign. For instance, if you’re talking to a girl and she has her arms crossed over her chest this is because she feels protective of herself and a bit standoffish with you. Subconsciously she is covering her heart and protecting it.
If a shy girl likes you but doesn’t want to tell you, she will find any way she can to touch you without overstepping boundaries. For example, if you make her laugh, she might touch your arms at the same time, a little bit, but not too much that it could be obvious. She might put her hand on your leg if you’re sitting next to each other to subconsciously remind you she is sitting beside you.
As cliche as it might sound, yes girls will giggle when they’re around someone that they like.
It’s a natural reaction and nine times out of ten they don’t have control over the pitch or the length of the giggle.
It could be a nervous reaction, or it could be because they see girls in movies do this and have grown up with the perception that they need to get like this around guys they like.
This is a good thing for you because you know as soon as a girl giggles then that means she does like you and you’ve also made her laugh, which is a bonus!
