A lot of guys fail to recognize the signs that a girl wants their attention. Sometimes, it may seem like a girl is just acting naturally, but in fact, she's actually making subtle moves to make a guy notice her. Are you one of those guys who tend to miss a beat when it comes to reading a girl's gestures? Do you want to find out the surest signs that a girl wants you to notice her?

Here's the truth, girls can be very crafty and creative when it comes to getting a guy's attention. What may seem like a random motion or candid expression could already mean something. You must understand that girls have different ways of expressing themselves through their actions. Some girls are bold enough to show off some skin, while others are modest enough to stick to the conservative methods.

The key is to be observant and quick-witted in analyzing a girl's actions and conscious efforts. Whether you are interested in dating her or not, it pays to know the signs that she wants you to notice her. Let's dig into the details;

1. Her Body Language Reveals a Lot.

Try to pretend that you didn't notice her, but be conscious of her expression and movement. Set your peripheral vision into motion and try to figure out if she's looking your way. If you are certain that she's looking or taking quick glances in your direction, she may be waiting for you to take notice of her presence and say "hi".

It takes a certain level of sensitivity and creativity to confirm that she's watching you and waiting for you to notice her. It may drive her to take the initiative of approaching you right away, or you could end up enjoying her growing anticipation. Watching her body language and being conscious as to whether she's looking your way or not can easily confirm if she really wants your attention.

2. She Exerts Extra Effort to Look Good.

She takes extra effort to look good.

Whether you're dealing with a girl you're familiar with or someone you barely know, take the time to check out if she's revamping her style and making an effort to look good every time you're around. Most girls love attention, and the most convenient way to get it is by looking their best through their makeup, fashion sense, and hairstyle.

If you're clever enough to notice that she's doing these things for you, there's a huge chance that she wants your attention – and admiration. So turn your radar on to amplify your sensitivity to the physical changes she's trying to make. Remember that girls can have different ways of beautifying themselves.

Some look like they just stepped out of a salon, while others wear revealing outfits to flaunt their physical assets. Whatever means she resorts to, the bottom line is that she's trying her best to make you look her way.

3. She Constantly Updates Her Social Media.

Is she constantly updating her social media account by posting nice photos of herself, pretty selfies, and random musings? If this is so, she's probably waiting for someone to notice her. A girl who's active on social media for personal reasons is definitely seeking attention and validation from other people. Therefore, if you see her posting more photos and sharing random things, she wants to be visible to others – and that includes you.

Some girls post ambiguous messages or statuses that imply something. Try to solve the mystery or read between the lines to figure out if she's trying to send a special message to someone. The more mysterious it is, the more that she's trying to make someone notice her – and that someone could be you.

4. She Fixes, Plays, or Touches Her Hair a Lot.

She touches her hair more than usual.

Have you ever noticed a girl doing those graceful hair-flips naturally? Do you find it sexy when a girl runs her fingers through her hair to reveal the shape of her face? How do you feel about a girl tucking her hair behind her ears or pulling it on one side to reveal her neck? Whether it's a habit or conscious effort, a girl who's constantly fixing her hair (or touching it) could be seeking for attention. It's commonly referred to as "the subtle art of flirting".

The hair is every person's crowning glory. Among girls, the random act of fixing it, shrugging it off their shoulders, or pulling it on one side are all enough to draw attraction from guys. Surprisingly, this motion always seems to work, and it never gets old. So if you see a girl playing with her hair whenever you're around, either by gently tucking it behind her ear or running her fingers through it to unveil her face, consider it as her subtle way of getting your attention.

5. She Tries to Get Closer to You.

If a girl is trying to get close to you, whether randomly or intentionally, it is an indication that she certainly wants you to notice her. More aggressive girls might even come up with creative ways to have a private moment with you, while others would jump at any chance to hang out with you. Either way, it clearly communicates that she wants you to regard and notice her.

Girls have different ways of getting close to a guy they like. It could be by sending text messages, coming up with a good reason to spend time together, asking for small favors, talking on the phone, and being visible on social media. As long as you can sense all her efforts in trying to get closer to you, it's safe to assume that she wants you to take notice of her.

6. Intense Eye Contact.

It can make you feel self-conscious, or you'll find it quite amusing and flattering – but yes, a girl who is giving you intense eye contact wants your attention. We can all agree that the eyes are the windows to our soul and they can reveal a lot about how we feel towards a person. So don't disregard those intense stares that you get from a girl. It could be a sign that she desperately needs you and that she wants you to understand her signal.

Intense eye contact could happen anywhere, such as in parties, clubs, bars, social gatherings, and cafes, among many other places. They could also mean a lot. Sometimes, a girl would pull back and look away to avoid making the wrong impression, or perhaps to make you follow her lead. Other times, she'll hold eye contact long enough for you to catch her message. Whatever the reasons are, if a girl is making intense eye contact with you, it's a definite sign that she wants you to notice her.

7. She Flaunts Her Physical Assets in Front of You.

Some girls have their own way of flaunting their physical assets to get a guy's attention. Keep in mind that every girl is different in this aspect, and there are many imaginable moves that a girl can pull off to make sure that your eyes would be glued to her long enough for you to notice her body. It could be by wearing a short skirt to show off her legs and body-hugging outfits to highlight her curves. Other girls might also resort to sexy acts like bending down to accentuate her cleavage, making sexy dance moves, or leaning seductively against the bar.

A girl who wants to capture your attention can get crafty in the most subtle way. You won't even notice it, but most girls have a natural charm. She can walk into the room in a poised manner, flash a gorgeous smile, cross her legs in a sophisticated way, or reveal her toned shoulders, and all you could ever do is to stare and marvel at her beauty.

If you're too naive to know these things, be conscious of how she effortlessly moves her body to reveal her best assets. The fact that you're looking towards her direction means that you're noticing her movements, and what she's doing is working to her advantage.

8. She Creates Her Own Drama to Be With You.

A girl who wants your attention might create her own little drama in an attempt to win you over. She could play the role of a damsel in distress or pretend to be in dire need of your help. The bottom line is that she wants your presence and support to overcome a certain situation. She may need you as a confidante, a shoulder to cry on, an ally, or someone to hold on to while things are rough.

The fact that she wants you to be around is a sign that she needs your time and attention. Her little drama might also be an excuse for you to notice her. If you happen to be in this situation, do not ignore the signs, and consider yourself lucky because she's taking the first step towards you. What would happen next is all up to you.

9. She Keeps Walking Past You or Your House.

Another sign that a girl wants you to notice her is her constant visibility. Do you often see her walking past you or your house, even though there's no apparent reason why she has to? Do you often run into her in random places and events? Unless you live in the same neighborhood and running in the same circle, it's safe to assume that her constant visibility means that she wants you to see her.

She could be aiming for small talk, a friendly wave, or a casual greeting. These little things could eventually add up and make you pay more attention to her presence. Eventually, you might even see her in a different light and notice her. 

10. She Demonstrates Specific Things That You Like.

She knows that you like girls that wear oversized sweats, so she wears oversized sweats all the time, or perhaps she knows that you like girls that wear nerdy glasses, so she wears nerdy glasses herself. These random things you like, which she suddenly demonstrates, mean that she wants you to notice her. Thus, she attempts to communicate to you that she can be whatever you like or that she likes the same things that you do.

This may be quite tricky, but if you try to become more observant, you'll catch her consciously trying to portray an image that you find pleasing in an attempt to make you look her way. Apparently, some things are more obvious than others, which means that you'll have to look closely to confirm. However, if you see and feel that she's exhibiting specific qualities that you like, that's reason enough to believe that she wants your attention.


Most guys are too naive or insensitive even to notice that a girl wants their attention. They often mistake a girl's actions as random gestures that don't mean anything. In most circumstances, girls need to amplify their efforts just to get the message across while waiting for the guy to notice them and make the first move.

As a guy, you need to become more vigilant and sharp-eyed whenever a girl tries to capture your attention. The sooner you'll notice those subtle acts of flirting, sideway glances, and small efforts, the faster you can decide whether to take action or not. A girl's temperament is easier to decipher than you can ever imagine. Therefore, instead of bombarding yourself with a series of questions as to whether she likes you or not – start interpreting her actions to find out if she's trying to make you notice her.
