I asked my friend this question and he said, "Well, if they dance like a stripper for you they probably like you." -_-

Well it's true...

So, simply, what are signs that someone likes you?

They might blush when you start talking to them, they might look bashful and divert their eye contact, they might start to breath shorter breaths, and they might start licking/biting their lips.

Hope it helps.

I have been getting mixed signals from multiple girls. So, simply, what are signs that someone likes you?

From girls...it's almost impossible to tell sometimes. You just have to go with your gut feeling and try to find out (like asking out)

I know a girl that I go to school with...the past few months we have been texting/talking and she gave SOOOO many "signs" that would indicate she had feelings for me (to back up my thoughts I asked my best friend, who is a girl, what her thoughts were and she said that the other girl had, without a doubt, feelings for me). Well, a few days ago I decided to ask her out and was (sadly) rejected, getting a text from her about 30 minutes later saying "Sorry I only see you as a friend"

Just a lil anecdote to show how girls can be tricky when it comes to their "signs" that they like you..

I love how guys try analyse girls like yous have us all figured out.
Are we easy or hard to read? Yous all claim us to be difficult game playing little minxes. We're not all like that.

How do you know if a girl likes you? Same way you find out if a guy likes you, you ask or they tell. All this "She makes a point of talking to me" etc, is bull. Sometimes we just want to talk to you, doesn't mean me want to jump your bones. Ask her, for dig around asking her friends or your friends to find out. Simples.

Well it's true...

look bashful and divert their eye contact,

That I see a lot, but if thats true then anyone who looks away while im looking at them is deeply in love with me.

In my experience, if you think you're getting mixed signals, you're likely overthinking things and there's actually nothing going on. Happens to us guys all the time ;) Usually if a girl really likes you and doesn't hide it, you'll know it yourself.

But as Jefferysinspiration said, the only thing that really works is asking. If you don't want to, stay friendly, keep open to everything, and don't get your hopes up.

One thing that really bothers me with women is the double standards. It's not really their fault as much as it is society in general. Although some take advantage of it.

Some examples..

Woman who is sexually inactive: virtuous/choosy. Man: loser.
Woman in low-paying job: cares about more than money. Man: loser.
Woman who is not socially outgoing: sweet. Man: creepy.
Woman who cries: victim. Man: weak.
Woman who experiments with bi-sexuality: no big deal. Man: placed with a stigma and/or labeled gay.

And the list goes on and on...

Of course, double standards go both ways but more so in terms of favoring women, in my opinion.

And you think guys don't do this to girls/other guys? & Girls don't do it to other girls? It's not a girl thing, it's a human thing.

As for the double standard thing. I'm glad you noted that it goes in both ways, but can't it be argued that as a gender we each believe it's more so the other gender in favour.

For example:
Being promiscuous: Woman = Sl*t, Man = Lord.

I was only kidding Jeffrey :(

Yeah, I think that's it. It's just me thinking that I'm special when I'm no different from the other dooche bags in my grade.

Of corse, we want what we don't have. We also always feel like that. The only other instance that I can think of right now is politics. Democrats feel that they are being attacked by conservatives and republicans feel exactly the same.

And that was the certainly the most obvious one. Feel free to see if you can name more than I can though.

Ahhh...well. Is it just me or is this thread pretty slow right now. So let's spice it up!

OK, for this one you will need a lot of background on me. So here is your chance to learn a bit about daleks(as in me, not the Dr. Who monster. But I could tell you all about those too).

Anyway, I am a naturally shy person. Like really shy. I hate talking to people I don't know and hate feeling out of place. I am constantly paranoid that I will offend someone somehow or they will think I am in idiot.

So ya. Back last school year I was in a Stats class. Loved it, but that is besides the point. There was this girl who was pretty cool. I don't know her very well(I sent her a friend request on FB but I am pretty sure she denied it), but she goes to a college I am thinking about going to. I want to just ask her how she likes it but I don't want her thinking that some weird person is asking her.

Anyway, what should I do?
