It can be tough to tell whether someone is interested in you or just wants attention.
If you’re wondering if that girl you’ve been chatting with is into you or would use anyone to stroke her ego, here are a few signs to look out for.
Signs that she just wants attention:
1- Pay attention to the way she texts you:
First, take notice of how much she texts you. If she’s constantly initiating conversations and sending long paragraphs, it’s likely that she’s interested in you.
On the other hand, if she only responds with one-word answers or doesn’t bother to text you back, she might not be that interested. If you notice that she’s somehow just trying to squeeze flattering texts about herself out of you, by asking how you find her or if you like her, then it’s a red flag.
She’s luckily just trying to get a flattering message from you to show off to others and to boost her ego. Chances are she won’t even reciprocate any of it and will probably not even take the time to reply back, once you send it. If that’s the case, then all she wanted is another little trophy in the form of a validating text to add to her collection.
2- She rarely makes time to see you:
Another sign to pay attention to is how often she initiates plans. If she only ever wants to hang out when it’s convenient for her, which is rare anyway, then it’s a red flag. In fact, if she never seems to make an effort to see you, she might just be looking for some attention.
However, if she’s happy to make plans around your schedule and goes out of her way to see you, it’s a good sign that she’s interested. But, make sure she is not texting you or calling you last minute to see where you are to get a car ride out of you or a quick meeting on the go.
A girl that likes you enough will consider seeing you a big deal and will probably not decide to do it all of a sudden and last minute without any preparation. So if she is asking to see you last minute, she probably had nothing to do during that time of her day and got bored or she is trying to get a favor out of you.
Paying attention to these small details can help you determine whether someone is really into you or just wants some attention.
3- She is not interested in getting to know you more:
A girl that just wants attention will not make an effort to get to know you. If she’s asking you questions and trying to learn more about you, it’s a good sign that she’s interested. If not, then it’s a red flag.
A girl that only wants attention will be changing the topic frequently, whether it’s because she’s bored or just doesn’t care what you have to say. Additionally, she’ll rush through her answers if you ask anything and never give follow-up or additional information.
But, be aware a woman that is self-absorbed of full of herself will still talk with anyone for hours as long as the topic is about herself, her achievements, her past, her experiences, etc. You can later check this article out for signs that someone is full of themselves if you need to confirm your suspicions.
In other words, she’ll always bring the conversation back to herself. it’s all about her, all the time. If you’re talking to a woman and she exhibits any of these behaviors, it’s a pretty safe bet that she’s not interested in anything more than a bit of superficial attention.
So unless a woman shows a genuine interest in getting to know you and asking you questions, there are always chances she is just there for attention or to kill time.
4- Pay attention to her body language:
Notice if she’s touching you frequently or pushing herself close to you when she talks. This is often a subconscious way of flirting and usually indicates that she enjoys your company.
If that’s the case, then she must be into you. Either that or maybe she’s just very good at being a player and is trying to seduce you to get attention. So you’ll have to guess her intentions by checking for the other signs too.
This is to say that you must try hard to pay attention to the way she talks to you. If she’s always flirting or making sexual jokes, and everything is always so superficial with her, it’s likely that she’s just looking for some attention. Indeed, if none of your conversations are deep or meaningful and she’s always playing around with you, then it’s not a good sign.
Finally, pay close attention to how she treats other people. If she only pays attention to you and even ignores everyone else, it’s a good sign that she’s only interested in you. In fact, if this is the case she will likely show signs of being nervous around you too, especially if she’s a little reserved and shy.
So pay very close attention to the way she acts and carries herself, in your presence.
5- Watch how she responds to your compliments:
Observe how she responds when you give her compliments or positive attention. If she seems genuinely happy and appreciative, it means she values your opinion of her.
However, if she downplays your compliments or dismisses them altogether, it could be a sign that she’s only looking for attention. Also, if she makes sure to tell someone straight away about your compliment or publicize it for others to hear, then it is a certain sign that she’s using you for attention or to gain popularity.
