How to Know if a Shy Girl Likes You

Something I struggled with in high school was, knowing if a shy girl liked me. I never knew for a fact if a girl was into me or if I was imaging it.

If I had known back then what I know now I would have dated so many girls in high school, it would be unreal! If you feel like you don’t know if a certain girl like you, don’t worry, man I got you. Nobody is born knowing it all. In this article will show you how to know if a shy girl likes you in five simple tips.


This is the first and most important sign you have to look for if you want to know for a fact if a shy girl likes you.

Shy girls will never initiate contact with you, EVER.

Instead, they’ll check you out when you aren’t looking their way. They do this because they’re not sure if you like them back and possible rejection would be heartbreaking for them.

This is something you can quickly notice and catch them every single time doing, ONLY, if you’re paying close attention.

You can even ask your friends to tell you if she’s looking at you to make it inconspicuous and not make her feel bad…


One dead give away to know if a shy girl likes you is… You’ll notice her group of friends continually looking at you, laughing, and then looking away.

Shy girls are only SHY around you, but when they’re with their friends, their authentic personality comes out.

You can know for a fact that you’re the main topic of conversation whenever they are together.

Ask yourself…

Why would her friends keep looking at you if you don’t even know them?

It’s because, in reality, they know more about you than you think. You better believe that this “shy” girl has already gone to every social media account, to every post that you’ve made and seen every single picture… along with her friends.

The reason their friends look, giggle and look away, is because they, my friend…know everything about you.


Has it ever happened to you that you cross paths with the same girl over and over again?

There’s a 60% chance that she might be into you.

This is what the shy girl does… She’s an expert at it…

Shy girls can’t deal with rejection, they will do whatever it takes to make you not know they’re madly in love with you.

But their attraction is more powerful, they can’t fight their nature, so they intentionally go where you go to be near you and have one more opportunity to see you


Shy girls don’t know how to act around their crush. It’s as if they change their personality the moment they see you. They don’t want to make their feelings for you visible, and risk the possibility of getting rejected.

This is why shy girls act a bit cold and neutral when they’re around you.

It’s not because they don’t like you, but because they don’t want to get hurt. So they put up a “shield” and come off as uninterested or sometimes even cold when in reality they’re crazy about you.

So how do you know if she is faking it and is acting uninterested because she’s shy?

The simplest way is to observe how she acts with other people. If you notice that she’s confident and talkative with everybody else but you, then that might be the only clue you need.


Now, this sign is super visible, but you can only detect it when you are talking to her up close.

When girls are crazy for you, and they don’t wanna show it you can always rely on the “manga” eyes.

The “manga eyes” is when you’re making eye contact with a girl, and you see her eyes light up.

Her eyes somehow glow a little brighter, and you feel this weird sensation that she is craving you like a glazed donut. Her eyes literally look like those eyes in the manga cartoons.

This is the ultimate sign, my friend… they may hide everything else, but when you see her eyes light up, you can be 100% sure this shy girl is madly in love with you.


The best ways to know if the shy girl you’ve been checking out lately is actually into you or not.

  • 1. You catch her staring at you
  • 2. Her friends stare at you and giggle
  • 3. You see her EVERYWHERE
  • 4. She acts uninterested
  • 5. Her eyes light up when talking to you 

Now, do me a favor and don’t waste time waiting for her to break the ice. Shy girls will rarely initiate any type of conversation. It’s your job as a man to have the balls to break the ice, especially now that you can spot the signs
