It can be difficult to tell if a girl at the gym likes you. She may stare at you, but that could just be because you’re in her line of sight. Or she may not stare at you, but that could be because she’s trying to be subtle.
There are a lot of mixed signals, and it can be tough to figure out what they mean. Ultimately, you cannot be sure whether or not a girl likes you until you verify whether the signs listed in this article apply.
In the end, the only other option you have, if you’re interested in someone at the gym, is to ask them out and see what happens. But, this might make you look like a creep and scare the girl off or even make her try to dodge and avoid you, at least.
So which one is it? Are you gonna read more and see if the signs below apply at least before you make a move? Or are you just gonna pounce on her head-first?
Signs that a girl at the gym like you:
1- She interacts with you a lot:
It can be tough to tell whether someone at the gym is just being friendly or if they actually like you. However, there are a few telltale signs that can give you a clue.
One clear and obvious sign that we should get out of the way first is if the girl goes out of her way to chat with you. If the girl seems to be laughing at your jokes more than anyone else, then it’s a good indicator that she’s interested. If she pays more attention to what you have to say than anyone else and makes sure she talks back to you even in group interactions, then it’s a good sign.
Unfortunately, this sign only applies if the two of you already broke the ice and spoke to one another. In this case, obviously, it won’t be so hard to casually ask for her phone number or social media while chatting. However, what if all the two of you are doing is staring at one another occasionally and still never had the chance to talk or interact with one another. In that case, read on for more clues.
2- She works out near you:
Another sign that a girl at the gym like you is if she’s been working out near you. If it looks like she almost goes out of her way to stay in close proximity to you then she clearly enjoys having you close. Maybe sometimes you get the feeling that she’s following you around and keeping you on her radar.
Or, perhaps she works out near you very often, and if not then she smiles when passing you. You even think she might have said hello a couple of times, but you didn’t catch it because you had your headphones plugged in. These are all valid signs that she might like you and be waiting for you to make a move.
3- She asked you at least once for help or about something:
If a girl at the gym selected you specifically to ask for help with an exercise or ask any type of question then she may be trying to get your attention. Of course, the best way to find out for sure is if she looks excited and happy while talking to you.
So next time try to remember that if a girl at the gym asks you for help with her workout routine, then she may have been preparing and debating whether to do it for days or weeks. It’s not a coincidence that she ends up next to you on the elliptical or asks you how much weight to use on the leg press machine.
She may be interested in more than just your fitness level. If She seems friendly and keeps making eye contact, until the day comes when she asks you something, then it just means that she’s tired of waiting on you to make the first move. Try to take it from there, man up, and keep the conversation going. She took the first step, now don’t mess it up for her.
A good tip we can give you about this though is that it will be very hard for her to do this if you’re always wearing your headphones. Who interrupts someone listening to music and enjoying themselves to ask a silly question? Maybe only desperate people, and she surely will not want to look desperate.
4- Eye contact and body language:
Another sure sign that a girl at the gym likes you is if she maintains eye contact and has specific body language. If she’s looking at you and smiling, that’s a good sign. If she’s playing with her hair or trying to catch your eye with specific and flattering exercises that make her look heavenly, then she’s definitely interested.
In fact, eye contact and body language are important. So pay close attention and if she’s constantly looking in your direction and making eye contact, that’s a good sign. Also, if she’s facing her body towards you, that’s another positive sign.
Does she always seem to be smiling and thrilled when she sees you? If she can’t help but grin from ear to ear, it’s a good sign that she likes you. Another telltale sign is if she’s always looking your way when you’re working out.
She might not want to get caught but she will still not miss her chance at looking often at the beautiful sight of you working out. Whether you’re across the room or on the next treadmill over, her eyes are always locked on you.
5- She will not wear headphones all the time:
Another sign is if she doesn’t wear headphones. Well, at least not the entire time she’s at the gym. She may take them off here and there sometimes and that indicates that she’s ready at that moment to be approached.
If she’s not listening to music or if she stopped listening to it, it’s because she is giving you an opportunity to talk to her. So, if she’s always around when you’re working out, and that just happens to be the time she takes her headphones off, or if she doesn’t even wear any at all, maybe it’s because she wants you to make a move.
So, if you see a girl at the gym who meets these criteria, there’s a good chance she likes you!
Of course, there are other signs too, but these are some of the most common ones.
So if you see a girl doing any of these things, odds are she’s into you. But of course, the only way to be sure is to ask her out. In the end, you can check this article out for more signs that a woman wants you to approach her.
