If you think that a girl knows that you like her then you might be wondering how she would act if she does.

This post will show you a number of things that she will do if she does know and how to tell whether or not she is interested in you herself.

So, how will a girl act if she knows you like her? There are many possible ways that she will react. She might show attraction, become more distant, seem nervous or she might the same way that she usually does.

There are actually many possible ways that a girl will act when she knows that you like her. There are also many things that you can consider when trying to figure out how she feels about you.

How a girl will act when she knows you like her

Each of the different ways that a girl will act will depend largely on her personality and on how she feels about you herself. There are also many body language signs that you can look for when trying to figure out how she feels about you.

Below, I will mention a number of ways that a girl will act when she knows that you like her, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She will show attraction

If she is attracted to you herself then she might react by showing signs of attraction around you.

If she is attracted to you then she would also likely interact with you in a different way to how she does with her other friends and she would likely show different body language around you.

If she is attracted to you then she might show signs of being attracted to you, when she is around you, such as:

  • Stroking her hair when she is talking to you
  • Brushing her hair to the side when she sees you and when she is around you
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Asking you more questions than she does with other people
  • Glancing at you a lot
  • Laughing and looking at you to see if you are also laughing
  • Giggling a lot at the things that you say
  • Touching you a lot
  • Adjusting her appearance when she sees you
  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you (peoples pupils dilate when looking at someone that they are attracted to)
  • Pointing her feet at you when she is around you (people point their feet at people that they are attracted to)

There are more signs of attraction that a girl might show around you and I have written about more of them in this blog post.

She will act distant

If she is not interested in you herself then she might react by acting more distant around you because she doesn’t want to give you the impression that she is interested in you.

Ways that she might act distant could include:

  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Standing further away from you
  • Smiling only at the mouth
  • Giving you short answers
  • Pointing her feet away from you
  • Having tight lips when around you
  • Glancing at her friends a lot when talking to you

She’ll act the same

If she considers you a friend then she might react to finding out that you like her by acting the same way that she normally does.

In this case, it would be likely that she would show the same body language around you as she does with her other friends.

If she does act the same way then it could still be the case that she is attracted to you. If she is then it would be likely that she would show some signs of attraction around you that she doesn’t with other people.

She will seem nervous

If she knows that you like her then she might start showing signs of being nervous around you.

If she does start acting nervous around you then it might be because she is attracted to you and finding out that you like her caused her to get anxious around you. If she does like you then she would likely show signs of being nervous (mentioned below) and of being attracted to you as mentioned above.

It could also be the case that she might seem nervous around you because she is not attracted to you and she doesn’t want you to think that she is. If this is the case then she would likely show signs of being nervous around you as well as signs of trying to distance herself like those mentioned above.

In either case, signs that she is nervous around you could include:

  • Struggling to hold eye contact
  • Rubbing her face, arms or neck a lot
  • Having a dry mouth
  • Talking at a different pitch than normal
  • Tapping the fingers and feet
  • Touching the front of the neck

Consider how she interacts with other people

When trying to figure out how she feels about you it would help to consider the way that she interacts with other people.

If she shows the same body language around other people as she does with you then it would make it more likely that she considers you a friend. This would especially be the case if she continues to act the same way around you after she finds out that you like her.

If she shows different body language signs around you compared to when she is with other people then it would make it more likely that she has good or bad feelings about you. It would help to consider the way that she changes her body language around you.

When trying to figure out whether or not she likes you it would also help to consider how her body language is different around you compared to when she is with other people. It would also help to think about how her body language is different around you compared to how it used to be. If she found out that you like her then it would be more likely that her body language would change around you more abruptly rather than gradually over time.

Consider how she reacts to seeing you

When trying to figure out how she feels about you it would help to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you.

If she reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing her body language then it would make it more likely that she has good or bad feelings about you.

If she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Adjusting her appearance
  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Raising her eyebrows and smiling
  • Adjusting her posture
  • Moving closer to you

Then it would be more likely that she is attracted to you.

Whereas, if she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Avoiding eye contact
  • Facing away from you
  • Smiling only at the mouth
  • Distancing herself
  • Tightening her lips
  • Squinting

Then it would make it more likely that she is not attracted to you.

Consider multiple body language signs

When considering what her body language could be suggesting it would help to consider multiple signs at the same time.

She could show a single body language sign for many different reasons. This can make single body language signs unreliable on their own.

Whereas, if she shows a number of body language signs that all suggest the same thing then it would make it more likely that she is showing them for that specific reason.

If you want to learn more about body language, a book I would recommend would be The Definitive Book of Body Language (on Amazon). It shows you how to interpret body language and understand people's true intentions.
