You met this amazing girl and you feel like the two of you just clicked.
However, you simply can’t escape the question that keeps popping up: “Is she scared of her feelings for me?”
It seems like she likes you but you can’t be completely sure. It’s like she’s playing hot and cold with you and you just can’t read her real feelings.
This usually happens when a girl is scared of her feelings because of her past experiences.
Maybe she has been hurt before; perhaps her previous partners lied to her, cheated on her, or made her feel like she is not worthy of love.
If her past feelings resulted in pain, she will be scared of them now.
When everyone you love eventually leaves, you start to think that something is wrong with you.
That’s why you need to be patient with a girl like her. Don’t expect her to be like all the other girls.
She won’t be able to openly tell you how she feels about you. Not yet.
Instead, if you think that she is scared of her feelings, then keep on reading. This article can help you understand what is going on inside her head.
If she likes you but is scared of her feelings for you, she will display the following signs.
1. She has two personalities
If a girl likes you but is scared of her feelings for you, it can feel like she is leading a double life.
The chances are that she will behave differently when she is in your company and when the two of you are chatting online.
The reason for this is that she feels more vulnerable when you are sitting next to her and it is harder to show how she really feels.
She may be scared that she will show you that she likes you but that you won’t give her the answer that she is hoping for.
That’s why she will probably flirt with you through text messages while being shy in person.
It’s highly possible that she will reply to your messages all the time and that she will never leave you waiting.
At the same time, if you invite her to hang out, she might look for excuses not to go.
The reason for this is that when she’s out with you, everything feels real. She gets scared that you will hurt her the way other guys did before.
To avoid that, it feels easier not to go than to experience another heartbreak.
2. She teases you
She wants to establish some sort of connection with you but she is not sure how you would react to that.
So, she decides that she will tease you A LOT to see your reaction.
This behavior is easier for her because she is not openly hitting on you.
Instead, she is using a friendly approach while creating a bond between the two of you. She wants you to remember her and this seems like the way to go.
You won’t be able to tell that she likes you if she’s just being friendly with you, right?
This is her philosophy and she will stick to it until you show her how you feel and that you won’t hurt her.
3. She laughs at your jokes
If she’s scared of her feelings but still wants to establish a connection with you, she will probably laugh at all of the jokes you tell.
Again, she feels that this is the best way to get closer to you. It is friendly and it doesn’t give away that she likes you.
She is trying to keep it a secret and showing interest through laughing at your jokes seems like the best option.
In her head, “I like your jokes,” feels like she’s telling you, “I like you but I’m scared of what will happen next.”
That’s why she chooses a way that seems simpler and safer to her.
A girl who is scared of her feelings will need to find a way to pull you into her life. She wants to make you a part of it, but she is not sure how.
Sharing the details of her life with you will seem like a great way to get what she wants.
By doing this, she is opening the door of her world and letting you in.
Still, it doesn’t make her look needy or too into you because it is just a friendly gesture. We all share parts of our life with our good friends, right?
So, she chooses to make herself feel like a friend to you, and later on, she will work from there.
It would be too much for her to admit right now that she likes you.
That’s why she takes a slower path that is more comfortable for her.
5. She shows signs of nervousness when in front of you
A girl who is scared of her feelings for you will almost always feel nervous in your company.
No matter how good she is at hiding it, she may slip up and it will give away her nervousness.
She may nervously play with her hair, fidget in a chair, or subconsciously blush.
No matter how, she will probably show some of the signs that will let you know that she is being nervous.
It will be cute to look at her, her cheeks changing color, looking adorable while she’s trying to hide it from you that she likes you.
6. Her friends make jokes about the two of you as a couple
It makes no difference whether we are talking about a girl who is scared of her feelings or about one who has no issues with showing you that she likes you – both of them will tell their friends about their crush.
It’s just the way women’s friendships work. So, if you overhear some rumors that she likes you, you better believe them.
Also, if her friends make jokes about what a good couple you two would make, she has definitely told them that she likes you.
She’s too scared to show you how she really feels so she’s using other ways to play the cards she is afraid to play.
If a girl likes you but she is scared of her feelings, trust me, she doesn’t want you to feel like she is playing games with you.
She’s just been hurt too many times to feel free with expressing how she feels.
However, if you pay closer attention to the signs that give her away, you should take the next step and assure her that everything will be fine.
She just needs you to show her that you won’t run away like those before you!
