So bro! You’ve been seeing a girl, but you aren’t sure if she’s into you or not.
You asked her out, but she declined. Yet, she seems to be interested in you.
You want to make a move on her, but you aren’t sure of her true feelings for you.
Read: Signs she’s developing feelings for you.
Every now and then, you keep asking yourself;
• “Does she like me but just hiding her feelings for me?”
• “Is she playing hard to get?”
• “Why would she hide her feelings for me?”
Knowing if a girl likes you or not can be pretty confusing since women show their interest in ways that are subtle, and indirect.
It is rare for any girl to communicate her interest to a guy she likes directly, and verbally.
Neither will a girl make a move on you.
So, if you are waiting for a girl to verbally say to you “I like you, and I would love it if you became my boyfriend”, you will have to wait forever.
First, let’s look at….
Why Do Girls Seem To Hide Their Feelings In Guys They Like?
A girl may not reveal her true feelings for you, straight forward, because of the following reasons.
The following reasons aren’t a one answer fits all kind of.
Because every girl is different.
It shall depend on the girl’s personality, and background.
1. Fear Of Rejection.
The girl fears that if she fully expresses her true feelings for a guy, he may not reciprocate.
She doesn’t want to feel like a loser.
Girls fear rejection, too.
She doesn’t want anything to go wrong, and hurt her emotions, and self-esteem.
2. It’s Because Of The Friend zone.
A girl may hide her feelings for you because she doesn’t want to ruin the friendship.
It can result from the fact that either of you friend zoned the other.
And this can seem hard to turn into a romantic relationship.
3. Family issues.
A girl fears that if she reveals, her true feelings for you, it may turn into a relationship.
And, for whatever reason, her parents might not approve the relationship.
So, this leaves a girl in a hard, and confusing situation.
It makes it hard for her to make a decision whether to start a relationship with you.
4. You May Become Mad At Her.
The girl fears that you might start to judge her.
She thinks you may say statements like “Why would you say something like that?”
So, she keeps her romantic feelings for you to herself.
Some girls think that if they become straight forward with their romantic feelings for a guy, people, or even the guy she likes will think she’s being a slut.
Almost any girl will do anything for people not to think she is a slut.
So, you should never judge a girl if she directly reveals her romantic feelings for you.
This is a mistake nice guys are guilty of making.
They judge girls’ sexual behaviors.
That’s why girls like being around bad boys.

5. She Is Not Sure If You Are Ready For A Relationship.
Most girls would want to make sure that you will be willing to commit to her if she reveals her feelings for you.
She doesn’t want you to drop her after she has had sex with you.
She doesn’t want to feel like slut.
This can also happen if the girl is sees that you are popular, or always around other beautiful girls.
The girl might think you are a player.
So, she holds back because she may think “What if it turns into a relationship, and he breaks my heart?”
6. She Doesn’t Know Much About You.
Some girls would want to know more about you, and who you are before anything serious happens between the two of you.
So, if the girl feels like she knows less about you, she will keep holding back.
She wants to know;
• Whether you’re married.
• Where you come from.
• She doubts your personality.
• Your family background.
• Whether you have girlfriend. She doesn’t want to keep flirting with someone’s boyfriend.
7. She Wants You To Reveal Your Feelings First.
Some girls will want to make sure that they don’t reveal their feelings to a guy until he does it first.
She just wants you to first make a move on her.
So, she can be sure that you like her too.
8. She Is Playing Hard To Get.
Let’s face it friends…
Some girls are just too damn proud!
So, a girl may hide her true feelings for you because she doesn’t want to seem ‘easy to get’.
She doesn’t want her girl friends, and people in general to look at her, and say….
“Oohh, She’s falling for that dude!”
9. She just wants your attention.
Some girls are simply flirts.
They just enjoy flirting with guys that leads no where.
They are attention freaks.
You need to avoid such girls because they are time wasters.
This is how a flirt does it;
• She picks all your calls. And she gives you all the time you want.
• She always texts back, and sometimes replies Immediately. Just like any girl who has strong romantic feelings for you.
• She touches you often during conversations. But will pull away whenever you touch her! So, what’s the point! How can you have sex with a woman who won’t allow you to touch her?, ask yourself.
• She will decline, or give some lame excuse whenever you ask her out.
• But, she will continue reaching out to you.
Such girls will keep giving you mixed signals that they have feelings for you just to lead you on.
So that you can keep giving them attention.
Some girls will give you mixed signals of interest because they don’t want to lose you.
“Then why won’t she just date me?”
The girl wants to make sure that she has another guy lined up before she stops giving you signals of interest.
She has some other guy, but she isn’t sure if she can get him.
Basically, she needs some male attention before she gets a ‘real’ boyfriend.
If you are super lucky, she might finally date you when she fails to get the kind of guy she wants.
10. She Doesn’t Like You!
Let’s face the truth bro…
The girl might not be interested in you!
It could be that the girl isn’t actually hiding her feelings….
She is simply not interested in you.
But you won’t accept the truth.
And what causes more confusion is the fact that the girl doesn’t want to be direct about her interest, and hurt your feelings.
However, in the following part of the article, I am going to show you how you can deal with all this doubt…..
And know EXACTLY if she is hiding her feelings for you, or simply not interested.
I am also going to show you what you should do about it.

● She isn’t sure whether or not, you are ready for a relationship.

We have seen why a girl would hide her romantic feelings.
Now let’s look at how you can tell if a girl is hiding her feelings for you.
Most of these signs are non-verbal cues because a girl can easily fool you by saying….
“I love you”…
“I like you”….
“I don’t like you”….
“I want to be with you”….
But guess what she can never fool?
Good, Its body language!
Signs A Girl Likes You But Hiding Her Feelings For You.
However, you will need to look out for several of these signs before you make any conclusions whether the girl is hiding her feelings for you.
Let’s get straight into it.
1. She feels jealousy for you.
If she sees you around other girls, does she feel bothered by it?
If you are in a conversation, and you talk about other girls, does she look phased by it?
If the answer is yes, then she probably has strong feelings for you.
If the answer is No, however, she could just be proud, and pretending.
So, you need to look out for more signs before you draw any conclusions.
2. Remembers simple details in your conversations.
Having a girl’s attention is a huge sign she likes you.
Girls never give too much attention to guys they don’t find attractive.
The fact that she remembers simple, and small details in your conversations shows that the girl pays total attention whenever you’re talking to her.
It shows that she cares about you, and what you have to say.
This clearly shows that she has feelings for you.
If not, why would she remember your mom’s name yet, you can’t even recall the moment you talked about it in a conversation with her.
3. Makes prolonged, and strong eye contact.
If a girl has strong romantic feelings for you, she will hold eye contact whenever she gazes into your eyes, from time to time.
More so, if you aren’t saying anything.
She won’t even think about it.
Prolonged, and strong eye contact with the opposite sex in a moment of silence (It can be as few as four seconds) isn’t normal.
It communicates intimacy.
If the girl looks away from your gaze whenever she makes eye contact with you, it shows two things;
• She’s shy.
• She has zero romantic feelings for you. It shows that the eye contact was accidental. The girl looks away Immediately because she doesn’t want any sexual tension that won’t be broken, to be created. She doesn’t want to create sexual tension with a guy she has no feelings for!
If you know that the girl is confident, and assertive but avoids eye contact, it’s a huge sign that she no feelings for you.
At least for now!
4. Her friends know you.
If you find out that her close friends (who you’ve never met) know you, it won’t be by accident.
• She told them about you.
• She didn’t tell them about you but, her girl friends ‘read between the lines’. Girls are good at reading body language. So, they could tell she had a crush on you by the way she talks about you, and how often, for example.
5. Points her body toward you.
When she’s sitting, or standing next to you, does she point her body towards you?
If yes, then she is giving you her total attention. Therefore, she likes you.
Even when she is sitting with her legs crossed, she will point the foot of the top leg towards you.
Whenever you point your body towards hers, does she lean back, close off her body, or pull back?
If yes, she has no feelings for you.
6. She touches you often.
Girls are very sensitive to their bodies especially if it involves the opposite sex.
So, whenever she touches you, it won’t be an accident.
On the other hand, whenever you touch her, she will try to pull back because she doesn’t want it to go too far.
This shows that she’s holding back her feelings for whatever reason.
7. The girl reaches out to you often.
If a girl secretly loves you, she will often miss you whenever you aren’t around.
And she will often won’t be able to take it.
• She will call you often.
• She will text you often.
• She will always come to you, and start a conversation.
8. The girl will want to spend time with you.
If the girl has feelings for you but trying to hide them, she will always what to spend time with you.
She will always want to be close to you because she finds you attractive.
During a conversation she will take effort to restart it whenever it lulls.
If the girl has no true feelings for you, she will try to avoid you whenever you try to spend time with her, or get close to her.
And even when you spend time with the girl, she won’t feel excited around you.
9. She checks you out.
This shows that you have the girl’s attention.
She finds you attractive.
So, whenever you catch her looking at you, she will look away Immediately.
Probably, she is being shy, or she doesn’t want to make it clear she has feelings for you.
10. She avoids hanging out with you.
A girl who is hiding her feelings for you will always hold back whenever you try to take your interactions with her to a next level.
Otherwise, if she was clear with her feelings, she wouldn’t resist hanging out with you.
11. She acts cold, and holds back if the conversation becomes sexual.
Whenever you try to sexualize the conversation with a girl who’s holding back her feelings, she will stop talking, or act cold.
She doesn’t want to make it seem like the interaction between two of you is a sexual one.
12. She starts preening.
Preening means things a girl does to make her look attractive to a guy, or to get noticed by a guy she likes.
Preening can sometimes be subconscious, and a girl will do it without thinking about it.
An example of preening can include adjusting her hair to look nice, and organized.
13. She laughs at your mildly witty statements.
Whenever you say something that is not that funny, she laughs at it as if it is funniest in the world.
The girl who has secretly fallen for you will often be smiling around you.
14. The girl mirrors you.
Women are naturally submissive to guys they are attracted to.
One way of expressing this submissiveness is through mirroring your actions.
She will mirror you by;
• Adjusting the tone of her voice to match yours.
• Adjusting her body posture to match yours.
• She changes the speed at which she talks to yours.
• She laughs when you laugh.
Other signals of submissiveness include but not limited to;
• Doing for you favors whenever you ask her to.
• Gazing down after making eye contact with you.
• She is always following your lead.
• She lets you lead your conversations by asking you less questions, and answering most of your questions.
• She agrees with whatever you say. She gives up pretty easily whenever there is a disagreement.
15. She teases you.
Girls love teasing, and it’s something that comes naturally to women.
If a girl likes you secretly, she will keep play fully teasing you.
So if a girl teases you, never get upset by it because it clearly shows that she likes you.
Actually, getting upset will turn the girl off.
She will lose some feelings she may have had for you because it shows that you lack confidence, and you take yourself too seriously a.k.a boring.
One way girls tease guys they like is through giving them shit tests.
So, you need learn how to respond to girls’ sh!t tests in an attractive way instead of getting upset by them.
16. The girl compliments you.
A compliment given by a girl is an indirect way of saying I like you.
It means the girl is giving you attention, and has, therefore, noticed something good about you.
However much it can be confusing to know if a girl likes you, never ask a girl verbally if she has feelings for you for two reasons;
• Chances are high the girl will say No. Even if, it’s the opposite.
• It makes you look desperate, and less attractive to the girl.
Knowing the signs of a girl who has romantic feelings for you isn’t the most important thing.
The most important thing is to know what you need to do after knowing that the girl has feelings for you.
Sometimes you may not even get the exact answer whether the girl is actually having feelings for you secretly.
So what should you do about it?
If the girl is showing a good number of the above signals.
You aren’t sure, yet.
Then it’s simple…..
Ask the girl out on a date.
If you haven’t talked to her, find time to talk to her.
By either approaching her directly, or reach out to her through friends.
Then get her number, and set up a date.
Chances are, the girl likes you too, and would love it if you make a move on her.
If the girl didn’t like you, and wasn’t actually hiding any feelings, or she was simply being a flirt…..
She might decline your invitation.
But this is good.
• At least now you know. She didn’t like you from the beginning.
• You have saved your time, energy, and thoughts you would have wasted on a girl who has no true feelings for you. You can spend the saved time pursuing girls who have feelings for you.
