You know she likes you when she finds random reasons to talk to you. When she makes a point to text you or hang out with you throughout the week, even though she’s been busy with work and school and the rest of her responsibilities.

You know she likes you when she stays up later than she should, just so she can see what your latest text said. Just so she can come up with something cute to type back.

You know she likes you when she tries her hardest to keep the conversation going. When she sees that it’s dying down and comes up with a new topic. When she doesn’t want you to stop talking to her.

You know she likes you when she keeps her phone on the edge of her bed and wakes up to every beep, even though she knows she’s going to be half-asleep the next day. Even though she knows she’s going to hate herself in the morning for prioritizing you over her sleep.

You know she likes you when she asks about your parents. Your pets. Your passions. When she remembers the names of your cousins and that you had a paper due that day. When she keeps track of the things that matter to you.

You know she likes you when she notices the small things. When she compliments you on your haircut, even though you barely changed the style. When she brings you your favorite drink, even though you’ve never told her it was your favorite. She just paid such close attention that she realized it herself.

You know she likes you when she finds any excuse she can to touch you. When she sits close to you. Hugs you. Play fights with you. When she always has her hands somewhere on your body.

You know she likes you when she sticks to your side in groups. When she tries to get you alone. When she makes plans to hang out with you one-on-one, because she wants to have you all to herself.

You know she likes you when she gets nervous around you. When she fidgets and plays with her hair. When she stumbles over her words, because she’s trying too hard to say the right things.

You know she likes you when she laughs wildly at everything you say. Not because she’s trying to make you feel good about yourself, but because she honestly enjoys spending time with you. Because she thinks you’re adorable, even when you’re doing the dumbest things.

You know she likes you when she talks about you to everyone she meets. When all of her family members and friends know your name, because she never shuts up about you.

You know she likes you when she goes out of her way to do something sweet for you. When she gives and gives without expecting anything in return.

You know she likes you when she puts in effort. When she does whatever she can to see your smile. TC mark
