Relationships can come out of the most unexpected friendships. That’s why it isn’t always a bad thing to have platonic female friends. Because sometimes attraction can happen at the flip of a switch in a woman’s brain.
I’ve experienced this before myself where I had a male friend and then one day I started to get really nervous when I would see him and I would get really jealous and mad when he told me about these other girls he was dating.
I was getting so angry and I didn’t relax until I realized that I was having more than platonic feelings for this guy.
That’s why I wanted to share with you some ways that you can tell if your girl, who is a friend, might want to be more than friends. Because it happens, and it probably happens more often than you would think.
So what are the signs that your lady friend is starting to feel the dirty twirlies for you? I should mention that you should look for more than one of these signs, before you make a move.
1. She becomes self-conscious
One of the most obvious ways to tell if your friend wants to kick things up a notch is if she becomes self-conscious when she’s around you.
I mean if she starts to dress better when she’s around you she could be trying to impress you and make you see her in a different way. A favorable way.
One of the main ways that women try to capture a man’s attention is through our clothing choice.
Regardless if men pay that much attention to our dress or not, women think that it really matters, so if she’s starting to dress a lot cuter, or sexier when she’s around you, or just more put together, she’s putting her best self forward when you’re around and that isn’t for nothing.
This is easier to tell if your friend would wear sweat pants around you or show up in grubby clothes on laundry day.
If you see her start to fix up her hair, put on some makeup, and dress better, these are all signs that she could be trying to get your attention and attract you.
2. She gets jealous
The second way to tell that a woman is starting to have feelings for you is when you start to talk to her about other girls she gets jealous or is always talking about how none of those women are actually good enough for you.
She’s giving you a biased opinion on these girls about how they might not be good enough for you because she’s using her role, as your friend, to try to influence you away from these “unsuitable” women.
Her goal could be to pose herself as the best option for you.
This is why she’s dressing well whenever she sees you. Another way that she could be trying to show you that she wants more is if she is touchy, which is our third sign.
3. She gets touchy
One of the female indicators of interest is touching. Not overtly sexual touching, but light-hearted, playful touches.
I’m not talking about her grabbing your penis, but she could be making excuses to touch you.
For example, she could tickle you, play fight with you, brush something off of you, or grab your arm to get your attention. There are a lot of ways that women will touch a man when she’s trying to signal that she’s interested in him.
4. She takes more of an interest in your life and wants to hangout
When a woman likes you, she will want to spend time with you and she will be more invested in your life.
She will ask personal questions in an attempt to get more information about your day to day life.
She will probably try to flirt with you as well.
When we like someone, we want to spend time with them. If your lady friend is trying to instigate more one-on-one hangouts, she could be trying to let you know that she’s into you as more than just a friend.
When you’re trying to decipher if your female friend has developed a case of the hots for you, look out for more than one of these signs.
That way, when you want to make your move, your chances of being rejected are slim to none.
