- She can’t control the smile face when she sees you
This is a very sensitive factor. How do you know if that a female co-worker likes you but is hiding it? Well, it’s her smiley face that does the talking. I assume that you are aware of the fact that a lady’s smiley face is not for everyone. You’ll definitely be able to differentiate between the special smile offered to you free of charge, and that casual grin given to everyone else in the office.

- Share personal stuff with you, only you.
Well, here I don’t mean physical stuff, but emotional ornaments. If you notice a female co-worker tells you secrets about her personal life that you have no business knowing anything about, then it’s probably a sign that she likes you. Generally, females tend to share secrets with people they feel can be trusted. But it’s also important to note that, some girls have this funny habit of telling everyone about some personal issues pertaining to them. It might just be a habit of whiling away time for them. So you’ve got to be sure that you are the only one she’s sharing these secrets with, or else, you might just be one of her gossip pals. Sorry to say, but it’s the plain truth.
- Inquisitive about your personal life
Women always want to know the personal life of the person they are in love with. Well, the sensitive ones at least. Females are highly proactive and emotional beings, so this one’s a glaring nature. If she’s keenly interested in your life outside work, pays close attention and asks personal questions about your family, your friends, your health, your hobbies, your past relationships, your religion and more…then she’s trying to fill some kind of invisible gap between you both, just enough questions to break away from the aquaintance zone, if there is one.
So let me start by briefing you on the form it usually takes. First, she’ll start by asking you about your life outside work, the aforelisted, and then she slowly creeps into facts about your love life. Possibly trying to know if she’s in a safe space. Roger this one, it’s another of the obvious signs a female coworker likes you but is hiding it.
- Calls you or send texts frequently
Sometimes this one can be quite challenging, probably annoying, but it’s a tell tale sign that she’s interested in you. She’ll send you quite a number of messages about random stuff, like her experience with her boss, her coworkers, or how the coffee she drank upset her stomach. When you find out she’s calling or texting you often during and after working hours for small reasons, then she is trying to get your attention. When she lets you into her world, most of the time more than necessary, then she’s got feelings for you. If you reciprocate, you’ve got to answer every call, and reply every text.
- Suprisingly remember every tiny details about you
This one gives off a warm vibe that she is trying to get your undivided attention by supporting your accomplishments. Do you notice that she remembers your birthday, the day you were given the ‘best staff of the year’ award as well as the look in your face when you got it. Then she might just like you way more than you think. Is she posting your birthday weeks ahead on her statuses and social media handles? Then your suspicions are correct. Why? The birthdays of adults aren’t really given much importance as they are with kids. You only see adult birthdays given some significance if they are celebrations of milestone and iconic ages. So you’re not in your middle ages and someone’s going out of her way to make your day iconic.. she’s definitely in love. Remember, that’s another of the sure signs a female coworker likes you but is hiding it.
- Does she defend you?
Gossipping, trash talking and accussation is not a new occurrence in the world of offices and co-workers. If other workers in the office say hurtful things against you, she’ll shun them and stand up for you. You might wanna note that a woman only does things like this for someone who means a lot to her. So, it’s a sign that female coworker likes you.
- She requests for hangouts during free time
If your female coworker likes you, she’ll want to spend time with you. So the question is..has she ever asked you out for lunch? Or dinner? To the movies? Or just for a stroll? Then she’s trying to spend quality time with you. You are literally going out on consecutive dates in the disguise of two co-workers cooling off after a stressful work day. Usually, this one starts off as a group of co-workers out for lunch, but then gradually it reduces to just the two of you. If this one’s not a clear sign that she’s into you, I don’t know what is.
- Gets jealous when you’re with other female coworkers
If she’s always got this sour facial expression whenever you are with other female co-workers besides her, then she’s jealous.

So, it’s another of the sure signs a female coworker likes you but is hiding it.

If other co-workers are giving you the knowing look, asking jokingly about your supposed girlfriend, then it’s a sign they know you both like each other. It’s very common that a lot of people don’t realize when someone likes them, or when they like someone. Sometimes all they need is a helping hand, for people to actual give them plain hints.
