Contrary to popular belief, not all introverts are shy. Some introverts simply prefer quiet places, relaxing nights and a small circle of friends. Either way, it can often be difficult to tell whether or not an introvert likes you. The majority of the time, they aren’t going to just come out and say it. That means you might have to work a little harder to decipher an introvert’s code and find out if they’re into you.

Here are eight sure signs that an introvert likes you:

1. They Make The First Move

This is a pretty telling sign that an introvert likes you. Making the first move can be very difficult for them. If they’re willing to initiate the first conversation, ask for your number or invite you out, it’s a sure sign they’re into you.

2. They Open Up To You

An introvert doesn’t usually wear their emotions on their sleeve. They have a hard time opening up to others. If an introvert comes out of their shell and shows you their true self, it means they like you and they trust you enough to show you the parts they usually keep hidden.

3. They Show They Care

Introverts are some of the most loyal people you will meet. They are also caring and compassionate. If an introvert pays special attention to you, tries to make you laugh or attempts to cheer you up when you’re down, you can be sure that they like you.

4. They Keep In Touch

Introverts usually enjoy their alone time. They like quiet spaces where they can meditate, be creative and hear themselves think. If an introvert makes a constant effort to keep in touch with you, whether that’s calling or texting you regularly, or planning get-together’s, it means you are truly special to them.

5. They Offer Advice

Introverts don’t typically offer advice. They prefer to keep their opinions to themselves. If an introvert is willing to give you their opinion and offer genuine advice, it’s because they truly care about you, and you hold a special place in their heart.

6. They Invite You Into Their Personal Space

Alone time is important to an introvert, so if they invite you into their personal space, you know they care about you. It might mean eating lunch under their favorite tree, going for a hike on the trail they love the most or eating lunch at a small, hidden spot they go to on a regular basis.

7. They Talk About Personal Topics

Discussing personal topics can be scary and intimidating for an introvert. If you’re at the point in your relationship where the two of you can talk about your likes, dislikes, interests and feelings, it’s because they feel comfortable around you.

8. They Offer To Help

Introverts have a helpful nature, but they tend to wait until they are asked to step in and help. If an introvert offers to help you with something before you ask them to, it’s a sure sign that they like you.
