They get jealous easily. 

In any relationship, we all experience jealousy at some point. Jealousy is one of the signs that someone is denying their feelings for you.

You might then question why someone who hasn’t stated their intention becomes jealous of you when they see you with other people. It’s straightforward. They want you to be like the person with whom they flirt, but they don’t want to be in a relationship with you. 

They’re flirting but not following through.

When they like you, some people go all out and get incredibly flirty, but then they don’t do anything else. There’s a chance they have a crush on you if they compliment you and find excuses to constantly be around you.

They may compliment your appearance, purposefully bump into you, and generally be pleasant in your presence. However, have they still not asked you out or told you they liked you?

This could be because they aren’t sure how they feel about you or because they are unaware of your feelings.

In either case, it’s an indication they’re hiding their genuine feelings; after all, if they were truly honest with themselves, they’d have asked you out by now!

They give you mixed signals.

“He was so sweet to me at lunch today but didn’t want to sit next to me on the bus.”  “She said she didn’t like my outfit but then she asked if she could borrow my jacket.” Do you constantly find yourself being pulled in different directions because of someone who keeps giving you mixed signs? 

If they are not sure how they feel about you, they’re trying to fight their feelings or make sense of them, and it’s throwing them off their game. It can be tough when you like someone but don’t know what to do, so they might be acting very weird.

They talk in parables.

Check how they talk about other women or men in their life if you want to know how to detect whether someone likes you or if you are just looking out for signs that someone is hiding their feelings for you. Do they make any indication that the many women and men in their lives are friends? Or do they say they don’t have anyone in their lives?

For example, just to gain your attention they may express disinterest in something that you find wonderful. They will try to start a conversation with you without making it look obvious.

The person will also inquire about your relationship status in subtle ways. They might inquire about who you hang out with when you want to unwind and have a good time to see if they fit into your life.

They talk about what if. 

You might be having wholesome conversations with them and exploring the potential of a future relationship but suddenly they say that there is no point talking about it as things won’t work out. 

This could be a sign that they are denying their feelings for you. 

These conversations often turn into pessimist fear of the future, that you two might not end up together which may cloud their Judgment of commitment. This is another opportunity for you to give her your assurance.
