8 Subtle Ways She Tells You To Stay, And 8 To Go Away

It can be quite a tricky task trying to figure out whether a woman likes you or wants you to go away. More often than not, a woman will give you signs as to how she really feels, but she won’t say it

It can be quite a tricky task trying to figure out whether a woman likes you or wants you to go away. More often than not, a woman will give you signs as to how she really feels, but she won’t say it outright. Why do they make things so complicated? Maybe they don’t want to seem desperate (because they know that guys, whether they admit it or not, like a challenge and put more value on a woman who is harder to get). Or maybe they’re just shy.

Fortunately, there are some things that a woman does subtly that you can learn to pick up on. Once you’ve learned these little signs, you’ll likely be able to tell whether any girl you’re talking to wants you to stay or go away. That way, you can make a move or quit wasting time (whichever is more appropriate). Here are 8 signs a woman wants you to stay, and 8 signs she just wants you to go away and leave her alone.

16 STAY: She Never Brings Up Other Guys

Sure, you should pay attention to the things she says, but you should also pay attention to what she doesn’t say. If a girl doesn’t bring up other guys (a boyfriend, a guy she is interested in etc.) then she’s subtly letting you know she’s available. If she wanted you to know she isn’t available, you’d be hearing about her perfect (and strong) boyfriend or husband. Of course, she could ask you if you’re available (which would make it obvious that she is) but most girls wouldn’t outright ask this, in hopes of not appearing too desperate.

15 GO AWAY: Her Feet Face Away From You

Many guys just pay attention to a women’s face and her words, completely ignoring her subtle body language cues. Did you ever think to look at a girl’s feet as she talks to you? Well, you should! The direction in which her feet are pointing reveals the direction in which she wants to go. Her feet are pointing towards another guy (even though she’s talking to you)? Well, looks like you’ve got yourself some competition. If her feet are pointing anywhere other than towards you, it’s not a good sign.

14 STAY: She Runs Late, But Looks Great

It’s no secret that women like to look good (for themselves and for the men they’re interested in). But, how can you tell if a woman is making an effort to look good around you, specifically? Pay attention to the time. Is she late to the date you had planned (or to the meeting she knows you’ll be at)? Does she still look amazing (like she put in a lot of effort to look that good)? If you answered “yes” to both questions, then that girl is definitely into you. Seriously, do you think she’d bother to put on an extra coat of mascara even though she was short on time? She wouldn’t care!

13 GO AWAY: Her Texts Are Close-Ended

You may be thinking, “Great, this girl is replying to my texts… that must mean she’s interested.” But, not so fast, buddy. You’ve got to pay attention to what she’s saying in her responses, rather than become overly excited just because she’s responding. If you notice that most of her replies are “k” or “lol” or "sounds good" or anything else that’s close-ended and doesn’t really give much insight into her feelings then take it as a sign that she wants you to go away.

12 STAY: She Stares At You

Ever notice that when a girl is looking at a nice pair of heels through the store window that she stares at it and there’s literally a twinkle in her eyes? Of course you have. That’s because women (and men) look at the things they like longer than they would look at things they don’t like. Seriously, this is a basic fact of psychology. Why wouldn’t she want to look at you if she likes you? The only reason would be if she is shy, but even so, you’d likely catch her watching then adorably looking away.

11 GO AWAY: She Shows No Respect

10 STAY: She Asks About Your Interests

9 GO AWAY: She Uses Her Phone A Ton


8 STAY: She Touches You


Have you ever noticed a girl placing her hand on your shoulder when she’s showing sympathy or laughing at something you said? Does she touch your arm when talking to you? Does she often “accidentally” brush up against you? Does she find reasons to touch your face or your hair (“Hey, is that hair gel? I’ve always wondered how it feels!”). Pay attention next time you’re around her. If she does any (or all) of the above, chances are that she’s interested and wants you to stay.

7 GO AWAY: She Has Many Excuses


6 STAY: She Laughs Often


It’s not a completely subtle sign, but it’s one that may be overlooked. If a girl laughs at everything you say (funny or not), it means she enjoys your company and wants you to stay. She wants you to feel wanted. We mean, who doesn’t like when their jokes are appreciated?

5 GO AWAY: She Flinches At Your Touch


If you’ve been talking to a girl for a while, you’d probably want to kick things up a notch and get into her personal space. So, you start off slowly, by placing your hand on her shoulder, either to comfort her or to express that you think she’s hilarious. Or, you place her hair behind her ear, like you’ve seen in those movies your sister watches all day. Most girls wouldn’t mind either of these actions, especially if they’re into you. They would blush or let you know they’re okay by getting into your personal space, too.

4 STAY: She Wants To Be Alone With You

If she accepts your offer to give her a ride home (and she knows it’ll only be the two of you in the car) or if she asks you to come over to “fix her leaky pipe,” she’s clearly not resisting to being alone with you—and that’s a good thing. This means she’s comfortable around you and probably wants to get to know you more. She’s also finding reasons to spend even more time with you, so of course she doesn’t want you to leave! Remember, she could have gotten a ride from anyone else (or called a cab) and she could’ve asked her dad to fix her pipes, but she chose you instead.

3 GO AWAY: She Takes Days To Respond

You text a girl and she doesn’t respond right away. Maybe she’s busy at work or in the shower, right? Yes, that’s possible. But, five hours go by and she still hasn’t responded. Maybe her phone is dead, right? What about if a day goes by? Did she lose her phone? No. The girl just doesn’t want to talk to you. Take it as your cue to leave and find someone else.

2 STAY: She Mimics You

It’s well-known that we mimic those we admire. If you have an older sibling, you probably tried to copy them when you were younger. If you have a celebrity role model, you probably try to dress the way they do. And if there’s a guy that a girl is interested in, she’ll try to mimic him, too.

1 GO AWAY: She’s Monotonous


Did you know that when girls talk to someone they’re interested in, their voice changes? It’s true; a girl’s pitch will become higher when talking to a male she finds attractive (and it makes sense because males are attracted to higher pitches). That’s why it’s important to pay attention not only to what she’s saying, but also to how she’s saying it. So, if you notice that the girl you’re talking to suddenly sounds like Mariah Carey, that’s a good thing.

However, if she sounds uninterested or monotonous, she most likely wants you to leave. Some people (unfortunately) just have a naturally monotonous voice, but you can usually tell when someone only sounds that way at certain times.
