So you meet this girl and you hit it off instantly with her. You two like the same things, hang out at the same hot spots and like spending time in each other’s company. But the thing is, you’re not sure if she sees you as just a friend or more. She hasn’t given you any direct signals, or worse has been giving you mixed signals. Read all signs here to find out if she likes you or not.
Signs a Girl Doesn't Like You
Communication begins and ends with you
It’s not like she doesn’t text – she does, but only when you’re the one who texts her first. She will always or mostly reply but she can seldom be bothered to continue the conversation. That burden always falls on you. On the extreme end, she almost always ignores communication from your end and when you do ask her about it, she gives you lame responses like that she was busy, her phone was on silent, she didn’t notice your 30 missed calls, etc.
She gives one word responses
Wow. Could there be more obvious signs a girl doesn't like you? I mean, whenever a girl is into a guy, she goes out of her way to make sure she’s all happy and giggly with him. One word responses, esp. “K” are her ways of indirectly hinting you that you should really back off.
She's happy being single
And she’s said this to you or her friends multiple times. Whenever she sees a couple arguing or breaking up, her first response is, "Thank God I don’t have a boyfriend." No, she’s not hinting that you should sweep her off her feet and say that you will be different from most men. In all probability, she is either genuinely happy she’s single or hinting to you that she’s not interested in a relationship with you. In either scenario, you should just let her be.
She openly compliments/flirts with other guys
She doesn’t hesitate to compliment hot guys on their faces or at least share her opinion about them with you. She even approaches guys she thinks are good enough for her. Of course, chances are that she’s trying to make you jealous. Chances also are that she simply doesn’t view you as anything more than a friend.
She is forgetful about stuff that you share with her
See, here’s the thing. Until and unless she’s suffering from a genuine case of short-term amnesia, a woman WILL remember all the stuff her crush tells her. You know why? Because we’re just like that. We will remember the stupidest details and then we tend to obsess over them. So if you’ve noticed that she is largely forgetful about things that you did together, like the red shirt you once wore as a joke or the time you laughed so much that you cried, then she really is not into you.
She only focuses on her career
Or she doesn’t have the “time” to get into a relationship. Either way, it’s her diplomatic way of telling you that she just isn’t interested in you in a romantic manner.
You’re her party buddy
You two love to party and can always be found at the hottest new joints in the city. But here’s one of the signs a girl doesn't like you – she only wants to hang out with you when she wants to party, which doesn’t necessarily mean she doesn’t treat you as a friend or is using you for your contacts. It could just mean that she sees you as nothing more than a person she loves to hang out with because you’re so much fun. If you two have never met at any place beyond a pub or a bar and have never had a decent conversation which did not involve alcohol, then the chances of her being genuinely attracted to you are very low.
Conversations are tough or dull with her
And it’s not like she’s a boring or very introverted person. But whenever it’s just the two of you, it feels like suddenly she doesn’t have much to talk about. You guys end up discussing the weather, what happened in the life of mutual friends and other such BS topics. You constantly struggle to keep the conversation afloat, and it’s time you took note of this.
You don’t make her laugh
I know, you don’t have to be a comedian in order to make her laugh. But come on. How many times have you had a conversation with her, cracked so many jokes and yet all she’s done is politely smile? That too when everybody around her was laughing hard at your joke. In all probability, since she isn’t attracted to you, she doesn’t feel the need to go out of her way and show appreciation to the things that you do, including laughing at your jokes. I mean, if she really did like you or was even remotely attracted to you, she’d at least fake one laugh or two, right?
She maintains a respectful distance
This is one of the clearest signs a girl doesn't like you. But you’ve never noticed this, have you? When you’re with a group of friends, there’s always at least one friend who is sitting in between you two. And even when it’s only the two of you, she’s never really physically close to you. There is always a little distance between you two. It’s because since she’s not physically attracted to you, her mind does not give her any subconscious signals to be closer to you.
Other signs she doesn't like you
Here are other signs that you should keep an eye out for to ease your mind:
She tells you she’s dating someone who she wants to keep a secret, even though you know for a fact she’s single;
She’s always busy, sick, has family emergencies or a shit load of work to catch up to whenever you want to hang out alone with her;
“You’re a good friend”. She never tires of stating that to your face;
She’s more into her phone than you whenever you two meet up;
She doesn’t feel the need to dress up when she hangs out with you;
She discusses her exes with you. A girl NEVER does that with a guy she’s interested in.
