How to Know If a Girl Likes You
How to Find Out if a Girl Is Mad at You
Is your girlfriend or other close female friend acting unusually different around you? Are you getting the cold shoulder, or any other subtle negative message that is making you feel uncomfortable? Rather than ignore it, it's best that you try to figure out whether something is wrong, or whether you're simply overreacting. You can do this by reading her body language and her communication cues. You can also reach out to those close to her to find out if she is upset and speak to her just the two of you.
Reading Her Body Language and Communication Cues
Notice if she displays closed body language.Not all people express anger verbally, so take a look at how she holds herself. Obvious signs of anger include shaking or trembling as well as sweating and a red or flushed face.Not all signs are this obvious though, so consider the following too:
- A clenched jaw or clenched fist
- Avoiding eye contact
- Turning away from you
- Crossing arms over her chest
- Frowning, rolling eyes, or otherwise cold expressions
Listen to the tone of her voice when she speaks to you.If she uses a mocking or strained tone, as if she is speaking through clenched teeth, she is likely not impressed with you. She may even use a sarcastic tone, mock you, or make fun of you when you're mentioned in conversation or when you try to speak to her.Other signs to watch out for include:
- Raising her voice
- Snapping at you
Check if she is not answering your calls or texts.The girl may express her anger by dropping her communication with you through phone calls or text messages. She may ignore your calls and voicemails and be unresponsive to your texts. You may find yourself sending out texts to her and not getting your usual quick reply or no reply at all.
- If sheistexting you back, look for passive-aggressive anger, such as usually short or sarcastic replies or "how do you think I am" when you ask her "what's up?"
- If she suddenly starts using periods at the end of her text messages, this could be a sign of anger or aggression.
Talking to People Close to Her
Ask her close friends if she is upset.If the girl has cut off communication with you, in person or otherwise, contact her close friends to find out if she's mad at you. Ask her friend, “Have you spoken to her lately?” and “Do you know if she is upset at me?” The friend may be able to respond in the affirmative or contact the girl for you to get an answer.
Reach out to her parents or other close family members.You may also want to talk to members of the girl’s family, especially if she is close to her family and confides in them. Contact one of her siblings who knows you and is close to the girl. Politely ask the sibling if she knows if the girl is upset with you.
- You may also want to reach out to the girl’s parents, especially if you know her parents well and have a good relationship with them.
Talk to your mutual friends.If you have mutual friends in common, consider approach them to get more information about the girl’s state of mind. Ask the mutual friend if they've noticed the girl acting aggressive or upset towards you and if she has said anything negative about you lately. This can help you gauge if the girl is upset.
- If the mutual friend also seems upset at you, this could be a sign that the girl may have confided in them. Ask them what happened.
- If the mutual friend refuses to tell you what happened, then ask a different mutual friend. If you get the same response, you may have to use a different tactic.
Speaking to the Girl One on One
Find a quiet, secluded place to talk.This could be in your apartment, in a park, or in your favorite hang out spot on campus. It may be challenging, but having a serious and honest conversation with her can help to address her anger, determine the cause of her anger, and potentially resolve the issue.
- Let her choose the meeting spot. This will give her a level of control over the situation, which may make it easier for her to talk.
Bring a peace offering.It’s never a bad idea to bring a peace offering with you to a potentially emotional conversation, especially if you may be in the wrong. You may bring her something small and thoughtful, like her favorite drink or item of food. Or you may bring her flowers as a sign that you know she is upset and you feel bad for what you may have done.
- Having a peace offering can also make starting the conversation with her easier, as you can hand her something she might appreciate and ease your way into the discussion.
- Keep it casual and don't make a huge show out of it, especially if you're in public. If she's mad at you, she may not want to be put into the spotlight.
Ask her directly what you have done wrong.If you are not sure what you have done wrong, you may want to start the conversation by asking her directly why she is upset at you. You may say, “I’m aware you’re upset at me, but I’m not sure why. Can you tell me why?”
- Don't ask her this if you have any suspicion as to why she may be upset. Doing so will likely make her evenmoreangry at you.
Apologize and make amends.If you're aware of what you've done wrong, you should make a heartfelt apology to her. Start by acknowledging what you did wrong and then go into a clear apology. For example, you may say, “I understand that you're angry at me for missing your birthday last week. I got caught up in my work and neglected your special day. I'm so sorry I did that and I promise it won't happen again.”
- Once you've apologized, you should ask her, “Will you accept my apology?” If she says yes, show her your gratitude and be humble.
- Make amends for your mistake through action. For example, if you missed her birthday, take her out to a special dinner and ensure that you don't miss it next year.
QuestionMy best friend is mad at me. I shouted at her and talked to her in a mean way. That was a month ago, I already tried to say I was sorry in every way, in person, via email, messages, and a letter but none of them have worked. She has blocked me, I have no way to contact her online, just in person. I am really scared and disappointed in myself. Lately I have been giving her space to think about the situation. What can I do now? I don't want to lose her.wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerRemember that forgiveness takes time and your friend may just need some space so she can be open to forgiving you. You should make an effort to show her that you are sorry for what you did and stay humble when you are around her.

QuestionI proposed to the girl I love just two weeks ago and she told me she's thinking about it with a smile. Does that mean yes?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerNo, that means she's thinking about it. Don't push her to make a decision before she's ready.Thanks!
QuestionThis girl I'm talking to has been giving me the cold shoulder, ignoring my texts and calls. I know she is mad, but she wont tell me why.wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerBe nice to her and ask her in person. If she still won't tell you, then give her a little space. After a bit, you could pretend nothing happened or say you are sorry for whatever you've done.Thanks!
QuestionI have a one-sided love. The girl doesn't want to be in relationship with me. She is very cute and innocent; she's never had a boyfriend. She is mad at me, and her friends are made at me also. So what should I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou should apologize. Girls love it when you apologize. Say that you won't do whatever you did and ask for forgiveness.Thanks!
QuestionMy girlfriend started acting all cold lately. When asked what the problem was, she said it's a personal issue that doesn't concern me. She doesn't pick up my calls or reply my texts. Am I the problem?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerHer description of the problem seems to indicate that it's not you, but who knows - she could be being passive-aggressive or trying to push you away, whether because you upset her somehow or because she's not interested in the relationship anymore and doesn't want to say so outright. There's no reason for her to be cold to you if you haven't done anything wrong. If she needs some space to deal with her personal issues, she should be able to tell you so kindly. Try to let her know that you would like some clarity on where your relationship stands and would like to know when/whether she might be able to talk to you again.Thanks!
QuestionA girl keeps staring with me...Her friends laugh at me when I pass by! Does she like me?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerStaring and laughter can indicate a romantic interest, but you should also look for other signs that the girl likes you.

QuestionI don't know if I upset her, but she isn't responding or wanting to talk on the phone very often in the past 3 days. Is she upset with me, or did I do something wrong?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThere are a number of possibilities with this one. She might be genuinely angry with you, or she might just need some space. Maybe she's bored with you. Perhaps you're trying to go too fast with a relationship or perhaps you said something that scared or disgusted her. It's really all down to your previous actions. If you have been insensitive, perverted, or awkward, those are all reasons why she might have disappeared. If you haven't done anything, don't expect the worst and dramatize the situation or be too clingy. There are other plausible reasons she could be unresponsive that have nothing to do with emotions. She could have just lost her charger.Thanks!
QuestionIf a girl groans when I'm around is she mad at me?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt could mean she is mad, or she could be joking around with you. If you are unsure, just ask her.Thanks!
QuestionAm I overreacting or is this relationship not a good idea?OlafthepandaCommunity AnswerIf you're asking yourself that question, then it is most likely not a good idea.Thanks!
QuestionMy girlfriend is mad at me because I offended her. When I apologize, she just walks away. Does that mean she'll hate me forever?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerProbably not. If she's that mad, just give her some space for a while. Once she's calmed down, try to apologize again. If whatever you said/did wasn't that bad, she should forgive you.Thanks!
