Social media has changed the game. Now, you don’t need to ask a girl for her phone number to chat with her. You can just follow her on social media and take it from there. Instagram is one of the best and most popular social media platforms now.
Most of the time, it’s easier for a girl to tell if a guy is into her on Instagram. But, does this mean that when a girl likes you, she can’t show you on Instagram? Well, not all girls will be willing to tell you that they like you, most of them will drop hints here and there on your Instagram page. To pick the cue, you have to be observant. The following are some of the most common signs that a girl likes you on Instagram.
She likes your selfies
Generally, when a girl likes your selfies on Instagram, it could mean that she wants you to like hers too. However, depending on the type of photos you’ve posted and she liked, it could say a lot about her interest in you.
If you post a shirtless selfie or one that you look hot in, and she likes it, then it says a lot. Furthermore, if she likes your photos immediately or within the same day that you posted, then she likes you. Just be careful not to fall into the trap of her baiting you into liking her selfies back.
She likes a photo of you from the past
Doesn’t it say a lot if a girl scrolls through your timeline and likes a picture that you posted in the past? This means that she likes you to the extent of taking her time to go through your numerous photos and liking one in particular. Even if she accidentally did it, it’s still a like from the past meaning she went through your photos.
She intentionally talks about a previous post
Instead of liking an old post of yours, she might bring it up. She will tell you about a photo or post that you posted a while back compared to the latest post or photo. This is just to let you know that she went through your photos and did some digging. She just wants you to notice her interest in you.
Replies to all your posts
A girl commenting on your posts is no news. Sometimes, it’s just a genuine comment, or she is just commenting on one or two of your posts. She may just be flirting with you. Whenever you post anything on the gram, be it a photo, video, or just a post and she is always there to comment, then she likes you. She doesn’t need to directly say it, she can comment ‘nice shirt’. Who has the time to be commenting on someone’s every post, unless you are a celebrity and have obsessive fans.
Watches your Instagram stories
Insta stories are live snippets that disappear after 24 hours are a good place to know if a girl likes you or not on Instagram. These snippets are renowned for being at the center of flirting and dating. One or two insta stories are not sufficient to determine if she likes you or not. You need at least 3 to 10 stories to gauge a girl’s attention.
Go ahead and post an obvious day-to-day thing like making breakfast, walking your dog, working, etc. and post all the stories in one go and wait. Hide and wait for some hours to see which girl views those stories. Now, go back to Instagram and check those stories. If she is just curious or in the habit of checking everyone’s stories she will probably stop on the second story. However, if you notice a girl has viewed all your stories, she likes you.
Slides into your DM
Despite sliding into DMs being more of a male thing, some girls are bold enough to take things to another level and slide into a guy’s DMs. She will drop all the pretense and instead of commenting on your photos, she will slide into your DM tell you personally. When chatting, if you also notice that her responses are a bit lengthy and are keeping the conversation going, then she likes you. Also, if she gets your sense of humor and laughs at your jokes, then she has a thing for you on Instagram.
She teases you
When commenting on your posts, she teases you. For example, she comments on your selfie ‘I love the new hairstyle, it makes you more handsome’. Then, she tells you how odd you look in other areas. Teasing is a form of flirting and, she might just be enjoying your reaction to her messages. At the moment, don’t take her words too seriously, tease her back.
She follows you on other social media platforms
If all of a sudden, you get notifications across your social media platforms other than Instagram that she is now following you, then she likes you. She is following you across all the platforms to keep in touch with what you are up to.
She seems to be online at the same time as you
Being online at the same time can be a coincidence and not a big deal. However, if this occurs almost every day, then chances are that the girl is looking forward to seeing and reading your posts. When a girl is into you, she wants to interact with you and your content in real-time. She doesn’t want to miss any of your posts in real-time and even chat with you.
For most people in social media platforms, it is not hard for them to notice if someone is into them, because they do make it very obvious. From the emojis to the comments the likes on every new post, and the habit of bringing up history by liking photos from the past. It’s all a strategy to get your attention and it really works.
