If you like a girl and you’re sure she likes you but you’re not able to take things forward, it’s possible she’s denying her feelings for you.

15 Signs She Is Denying Her Feelings For You!
1. She Can’t Stop Smiling When You’re Around
If a girl can’t stop smiling when she’s around you, it’s a good sign she’s into you.
She might be trying to hide her feelings by not saying as much, but her body language betrays her!
When you catch her smiling at you, smile back and see if the smile lingers or fades away quickly.
If it lingers or if she looks away it’s a great sign that she likes you, it’s just hard to say how much!
2. She’s Always Texting You First
If she is always texting you first, it goes to show that she’s thinking about you and that probably means she has feelings for you.
It might just be friendly chatting at first, but if she keeps it up then there’s a good chance she likes you.
If she doesn’t get to the point where she says she has feelings for you, it’s a strong sign she is keeping her feelings under wraps.
3. She Apologizes a Lot
A girl who likes a guy but doesn’t want to let him know or even admit it to themselves will often apologize a lot.
It doesn’t even have to be for anything, in particular, it’s more of a subconscious thing.
It’s almost like she’s telling herself that she’s sorry for denying her feelings and not opening up to you.
4. She Tells You She’s Happy Single (But Doesn’t Look It)
This is one of the most obvious signs that a woman is denying her own feelings.
If she shows all the signs of liking you but tells you that she’s perfectly happy being single, she’s in denial.
It’s probable that she’s either not ready to admit her feelings or she’s scared of getting hurt.
5. She Gets Jealous when You’re with Other Girls
If you notice that she gets jealous when you’re talking to or even just looking at other girls, it’s a sign she has feelings for you.
She might not want to admit it, but the fact that she gets jealous means that she cares about you and doesn’t want to share your attention.
Jealousy isn’t always a bad thing, as long as it doesn’t turn into possessiveness!
It’s another way that a person’s emotions can get the better of them and reveal what they’re secretly hiding.
6. She Always Wants to ‘Hang Out’
If a girl always wants to hang out with you, it’s a good sign that she likes you but can’t come out and tell you that she has strong feelings for you.
It’s hard to say why she doesn’t want to ask you out or be more forward, but you can take ‘hanging’ out as her way of saying she likes you.
7. Her Friends Tell You That She Likes You
If she is keeping her feelings bottled up and emotions under wraps, you could talk to her friends.
Girls are always going to be more open and honest with their friends than a guy they like, so it’s a sneaky way of finding out if she’s denying her feelings.
The best part is that if her friends want the best for her they’ll probably want to tell you the truth so you can make a move!
8. She Can’t Make Good Eye Contact with You
Eye contact is one of those interesting body language cues that help reveal what someone is thinking and feeling, but can mean a number of things.
If she can’t make good eye contact with you when you’re talking it likely means she’s nervous, likes you, and feels uneasy about something.
If you suspect that ‘something’ is her denying her feelings for you, it probably is that.
9. She Tells You It’s ‘Not the Right Time’ Right Now
If you’ve been making moves on her or making it clear that you like her and she’s been telling you that ‘it’s not the right time’ or something similar, that’s not a ‘no’.
It’s a sign that she wants to say something or wants to explain why she can’t take things further with you right now but would like to.
This says to me that she’s struggling to deal with her feelings toward you for some reason.
10. She Asks to Meet up Then Cancels at The Last Minute
This is one of those frustrating things that could mean someone is a bit of a player, nervous, confused, or trying to deny she has feelings for you.
If she asks to meet up with you she was obviously wanting to see you at that time, only to start second-guessing herself once she’s had more time to think about it.
There are definitely some mixed feelings or confused signals going on with her.
11. She’s Following You Closely on Social Media
If you’ve started to notice that she’s liking all your social media posts, commenting on most of them, and maybe even messaging you privately, it’s a sign that she’s interested in you.
She’s trying to find ways to talk to you or get your attention without putting herself in a vulnerable position by talking to you in person.
It might not be the most direct way of telling you that she likes you, but it’s a way of building up the courage to talk and a sign that she’s dealing with developing feelings for you.
12. She Texts You at Odd Times
Receiving texts at odd or unusual times is always a sign that someone is thinking of you.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a ‘good morning’ text or a random question in the middle of the night, she’s trying to start a conversation with you because she likes you.
It’s a way of keeping you on her mind and staying connected to you even when she can’t be around you in person.
She’s probably at home alone trying to deny the feelings she has for you and uses texting as a temporary outlet.
13. She Tells You that You’re Special
If she’s saying things like ‘you’re special’ or that you make her feel special, she definitely likes you.
This is usually a strong indication that a girl likes you, which I’m sure you’re aware of as not everyone tells you that you’re special, right?
The real question is why she’s telling you this and what she does or doesn’t want to happen between the two of you!
14. She Has Said that You’re ‘Different’ from Other Guys
Along with being ‘special’, if she tells you that you’re ‘different’ from other guys this is quite the compliment.
Girls – and guys – tend to say this when they want a person to know that they really like them on a deep level and appreciate them for who they are.
It’s an indication that there are some interesting, and possibly complex feelings going on under the surface.
15. You Can Just Feel It When You’re Around Her
Of all the signs that a girl is denying her feelings for you, this is the only one you can’t see or put your finger on, yet it might be the strongest.
If you get that ‘fuzzy’ feeling in your tummy around her, a gut feeling that something is different when she talks to you, or a vibe from her, you should listen to your intuition.
You might not be able to explain it, but if you feel like there’s something more going on than meets the eye, there probably is!
