When you’re just friends with a girl, it can be easy to miss all the signs that she wants to be more than that with you.
‘Just friends’ doesn’t mean that you’re both immune to developing feelings for each other.
The friend zone won’t always last forever and you know that pretty well yourself.
So what happens when you start wondering if your close friend, who happens to be a woman, has feelings for you?
You start looking for all the signs that show her attraction toward you.
You might not think that it’s possible, but if any of these signs are there, it’s really undeniable.
Signs she wants to be more than friends
The signs aren’t always that easy to spot, to be honest, especially if you don’t know what to look for.
When a girl likes you, she will try to hide her feelings for you. However, they’re always very obvious if you pay close attention.
I mean, she is your close female friend, so you should know her by now.
So, let’s figure this out together.
1. She’s the first one to like all your posts
I know that social media isn’t the most important thing, but it can become a clear sign when you look closely.
If she is the first one to like all your pictures and the first one to see all your stories, she might want to be more than friends.
She is always there to hype up your photos and comment under them, but why would she do that if you were only close friends?
2. She texts you a lot
Does she text you a lot? Does she text you to check on you?
Do you get many text messages that have no meaning, like memes or video links that she promised to send you?
Of course, she will be texting her other friends as well, but how many text messages do you get in comparison to the rest of your friend group?
It’s evident that two people of the opposite sex don’t text each other that often unless there is an actual attraction between them.
Frequent texting is a good sign.
It’s a clear indication that she wants to be more than friends, especially if her texts make you smile and you actually look forward to them.
3. Her tone of voice changes
It has been proven that girls speak in a higher voice when they’re talking to a guy they like.
You can pick up on this sign when you listen to the way she talks to other people around you and how she talks to you in particular.
Her voice will inevitably get higher.
I know that it might seem like you’re overanalyzing things, but if science says it’s true, then there’s no point in denying it, right?
Pay attention to her voice. If it does get higher when she talks to you, she wants to be more than friends.
4. She wants to be more than friends if all of her attention is on you
A sign that she sees you as more than just a friend is when you’re in a group setting and all of her attention is on you.
She doesn’t seem to bother much with the others and she doesn’t talk to them as much as you.
You clearly notice that when you’re the one talking, her entire body language changes and she focuses all her attention on you. She’s always the first one to respond to your questions.
Even when someone else tries to talk to her, she pays them just enough attention to not seem weird, but comes right back to you.
You might think that she just likes to spend more time with you than the others.
However, was it always like that?
5. She touches you a lot
Physical contact is one of the clearest signs of attraction there is.
She wants you to take your friendship to the next level, so she ends up touching you constantly as a silent invitation for you to make the first move.
The first time her hand brushed against yours, you thought that it must have been by accident, but when it happens more than once, you’ll know that she means business.
This is especially relevant if you’re not the only male friend she has. She doesn’t usually touch them much, if at all.
She keeps a healthy distance from all of her other male friends, so if you’re the only one she feels comfortable enough to playfully touch, it’s really an obvious sign she likes you.
6. She fiddles with her hands a lot
When you’re around a person you like, you usually get very nervous. Even if you two are friends, she will get nervous.
Anxiety makes us fiddle with our hands as an unconscious way to ground ourselves.
If you see her fidgeting with her hands a lot, you will know that she is nervous. What does she have to be anxious about?
You might even try to confront her about it, but she’ll deny it, saying that you’re imagining things.
The last thing you want is to make her feel more uncomfortable, so you end up dropping the topic, but believe me when I tell you that it’s because she’s nervous around you.
She might overthink what she says and what she does around you, because wanting a romantic relationship with a friend will make anyone anxious.
7. You can see she wants to be more than friends by her body language
You can’t tell me that you haven’t noticed the way her body language changes around you.
She is always invading your personal space and when you sit close to each other, her entire body is facing your way.
It’s quite interesting when you see the way someone’s body reacts when they like you. You might even notice the way her breathing changes.
She can try to hide her true feelings but her body will tell you everything you want to know.
It will be obvious even in her eye contact that doesn’t falter. It’s a sure sign she has developed feelings for you.
8. She laughs at all your jokes
Remember that being nervous or anxious about something or someone can easily make you laugh, even if you don’t want to.
A clear indication that she wants to be more than friends is the fact that she always laughs at your jokes.
It doesn’t matter how stupid or silly they are, she always seems genuinely amused by them.
You don’t see anyone else reacting the way she does to your jokes and it might even be what made you consider that she wants something more in the first place.
Not everyone will be amused by what you say and do, we are all well aware of that.
However, when someone has a legitimate interest in you and actually likes you, it’ll be quite hard for them to stop smiling and laughing.
9. A sign she wants to be more than friends is when she asks you questions about your life
When a girl starts asking questions about your personal life, do you really believe that she’s not interested?
If she wants to be more than friends, she will ask about everything that’s happening in your life.
It’s her way to feel special. She wants to feel like she’s the only one who has these conversations with you. It makes her feel significant to you.
It really is one of the most common signs to look out for because of the fact that her genuine interest in your life isn’t something everyone has.
Another thing to watch out for is the fact that she will remember EVERYTHING.
If you once mentioned to her about a game you have, she’ll remember what it is and she’ll ask you about it.
If you mention an important date to her, she’ll hold on to that information about you and she will mention it and ask you about it weeks or months in the future.
10. She asks about the girls you interact with
“Who’s she?” It might sound rude if you don’t know her true intentions, but I can assure you that she doesn’t mean for it to sound impolite.
Her jealousy is a clear sign that she wants to be more than friends.
She feels like another girl might steal you away before she even gets a chance to confess her feelings for you.
You will realize that her attraction to you is quite obvious by the way she looks at other girls around you and how she immediately becomes very grumpy.
I know that jealousy isn’t the most attractive trait in someone, but you have to understand her concern.
She wants you to see her as more than a friend, so why would she want another girl to have her shot?
11. She’s always the first one to help you
In every friend group, there are people to whom you are closer than others. Most of the time, it happens naturally.
However, she is always the first one to help you when you need it.
Your other friends are there for you as well, but she tries to be the most helpful one in particular. She might even ask if you need help with something.
If you have any trouble with your family, your other friends, or your love life, she’s always there to be a shoulder you can cry on.
She wants to be more than friends because she’s always making sure that you know that she’ll be there for you, no matter what.
If you ask me, it’s actually a very admirable trait.
12. She wants to be more than friends if she compliments you often
Compliments are treated as a currency today. When we compliment someone, we want something in return, right? At least appreciation of it.
If she compliments you often, it’s really one of the clear signs she wants to be more than friends with you.
You will feel appreciated and validated whenever you’re next to her, because she won’t hide the fact that she finds something about you admirable.
She will compliment your looks, your efforts, your work, or the way you dress. Whatever she finds compliment-worthy that day.
13. She doesn’t show interest in other men
Whenever you ask her about her dating life, she brushes the topic off. She may tell you that she hasn’t found the right one.
She might even tell you that she’s doesn’t like bad boys anymore and she just wants a good guy now.
Another excuse can also be that her past relationships have worn her out. She wants to wait for the right one now.
Everything she says she wants in a man alludes to you, even if you don’t want to admit it.
It’s really one of the clearest signs that she wants to be more friends with you.
Your friend is sending you all of these signs because she wants to take this relationship to the next level.
Invite her on your first date and see what happens. If your friendship is anything to go by, you two might have a very healthy relationship in the end.
Give it a chance and make the first actual move.
You can’t know if you don’t try, right?
