Hey, I’m just honest.
You wouldn’t be the first guy who loses his job because he’s hitting on a woman at work.
I don’t want this to happen to you.
That’s why I decided to share the signs a shy female coworker likes you. And that’s also why you have to be aware of one very important thing.
It’s not as easy as it sounds…
1. Signs a shy female Coworker Likes you are often hard to detect
That’s the uncomfortable truth.
It’s way easier to find out if a girl likes you when you meet her at a social event or at a bar. When it comes to working, women are more careful.
In fact, they are so careful that it’s almost impossible to find out if she’s into you…at least sometimes. You need to walk around with your eyes wide open and observe every movement she makes.
That’s the only way to find out if she actually likes you.
I mean, you are probably also more reserved and careful when you are hitting on a female coworker than if you would hit on the same girl at the club.
The same is true for her.
That’s why you have to observe everything very closely in order to spot one of the signs a shy female coworker likes you.
2. She only shows up at your department to talk to you
Why does she always come to your department?
She doesn’t work there. And she doesn’t even have to get some folders. Nope, there’s another reason why she always shows up there.
It’s because of you.
One of the clearest signs a shy female coworker likes you is when she shows up at your department or your cubicle even though she has no reason to be there.
You are her reason.
That’s why she only focuses on you and is only talking to you whenever she shows up.
3. She compliments your working skills
She knows that she has to be careful.
The office is a weird environment. Everyone who works there is a human being but at the same time, everyone has to try to act as if they were robots.
She can’t just tell you that you are the most handsome guy she has ever seen in this building. That would be too straightforward.
Instead, she has to be more subtle. That’s why she compliments your working skills.
That’s her way of showing you how much she likes you.
4. She asks you questions that are not work-related
She wants to find out who you are and what excites you.
That’s why she asks you about your hobbies, about your passion, and what you want to achieve in life. She wants to know your goals and if they are in alignment with what she wants.
In other words, she tests you for boyfriend qualities.
That’s a clear sign that a female coworker likes you.
5. She tries to be in a project with you
Let’s say your boss wants you to work in teams of two people. He then asks who wants to work with you and she’s the first one who screams yes.
She doesn’t do that because she thinks you are the best working bee on planet earth. She does it because she wants to use the time she spends with you to get to know you better.
And she wants to get to know you better because she’s into you.
6. She asks you for advice even though you are not her boss
You are not her boss and you are not her mentor.
But whenever she needs advice, she’s always coming to you. It doesn’t matter that there are other colleagues who are more knowledgeable.
She’s always coming to you because she wants you.
7. Her emails are not only about work
Here’s what other coworkers do when they send each other emails:
They are professional. They only talk about work-related issues.
Here’s what she does:
She jokes around. She uses a lot of emojis. And she also talks about topics that are not work-related.
This is one of the clearest signs a shy female coworker likes you.
8. She can’t keep her eyes off you in meetings
What happens when you are in a meeting?
She can’t stop looking at you. Sometimes she might even smile. Yes, she tries to suppress it and to act professional but it doesn’t always work.
She’s into you and you can see it.
9. She randomly touches you when you show her something
This is another clear sign.
Whenever she asks you to help her with something, she softly brushes against your arm. And whenever you show her something, she gets closer.
She leans in. Your arm touches her arm. And the rest is history.
Okay, not so fast!
There are even more signs a shy female coworker likes you…
10. She mentions how lucky your girlfriend is to have such an ambitious boyfriend
This is one of the clearest hints a woman you work with can give you.
She doesn’t ask about your girlfriend because she wants to meet her. And she also doesn’t do it because she wants to be best friends with her.
She wants to find out if you are single or if you have a girlfriend.
What if you say “you know, I don’t have a girlfriend”.
The moment you say this you will see how her eyes are lighting up and how her smile gets brighter and brighter.
11. She asks you about your favorite bars and restaurants
Do you really think she can’t google “best bars in my city”?
Of course, she can!
But she doesn’t want to find the best bar. She wants to know where you like to hang out because that’s where you’ll have our first date.
Yep, that’s her evil plan.
12. She always brings you snacks to your desk
She’s your food supplier.
And you are the only guy in the office who constantly gets new supplies of chips and apples. The reason is very simple. This woman is into you.
Women love to show men how much they like them by caring for them. And sharing food is caring. This is one of the clearest signs a shy female coworker likes you.
13. She can’t stop smiling whenever you enter the office
You just have to step into the office and she smiles like a happy child.
No other coworker triggers this positive reaction in her. You are the only one she wants and she shows it to you by smiling at you.
At the same time, she tries to hide her enthusiasm for you from the other coworkers. That’s the cutest thing about this whole situation.
14. She not only remembers your birthday
She not only remembers your birthday…she also buys you a birthday gift.
The other coworkers get nothing. But you get something cute and maybe even a little bit romantic.
She might tell you to open it when you are home.
That’s because her present reveals how much she likes you.
