Let’s get right into it.

Signs a Female Coworker Likes you

#1. She Says Hi to You Every Morning

This is perhaps one of the most obvious signs a female coworker likes you. Every morning without fail, she comes to your desk or office and says good morning.

This is especially a strong sign of affection if you’re the only one she comes to say hi to every morning. However, if she says hi to everyone in the office, she may just have a friendly personality.

#2. She Smiles When She Sees You

Have you noticed that she’s always smiling whenever your eyes make contact?

This could be a sign of affection. However, just like saying hi to you every morning, her smile could be a sign of professional courtesy or friendship.

So, how do you know if the smile indicates attraction of friendship?

Well it’s easy. In a genuine smile, she makes prolonged eye contact and holds her gaze for several seconds. By doing this, she is trying to look more attractive and inviting; therefore, indicate attraction.

#3. She Asks How Your Evening and Weekend Was

Does she always ask how your evening and weekend was? This is also a sign that she likes you.

By asking how you spent your weekend or evening, she may be trying to investigate if you spent your time with another lady.

It’s sporadic for a woman to ask if you’re seeing anybody. Instead, she’ll look for subtle ways to ask if you’re dating someone.

#4. She Looks for Ways to Be Around You

Whenever you like someone, you always want to be around them, right?

The same goes for your female workmate.

If she likes you, she’ll go out of her way to be around you. This may include moving closer to your workspace, always coming to your desk to talk, or wanting to walk you to your car every evening.

#5. She Asks for Help Even for Mundane Tasks

Are you the only one she asks for help in the office?

Asking for help could be a signal that she considers you a strong man. By asking for help, you naturally employ your provider instincts, which increases your attraction towards her.

Asking for your help also makes it easier for her to get closer to you.

So, if she’s always asking you to help her fix her computer, repair or replace her chair’s lumbar support, among other issues, it may be a sign that she likes you.

#6. She’s Always Ready to Help You

Does she always volunteer to assist you in projects? Is she always there to offer helpful, professional advice when you need it in the office?

Either she wants recognition for her work, or she likes you.

In most instances, it’s the latter. By helping you, she may be trying to show you that she’ll help make your life easier.

#7. She Tells you About Her Family and Friends

Have you recently noticed a shift in her conversations? Does she talk less about work and more about her family and friends?

This is a clear sign of attraction. By talking about her friends and family, she’s trying to connect with you at a deeper level. With these conversations, you get to learn more about her life outside the workplace.
