Dating can be fun and exciting, yet it can also be anxiety-provoking. You're dating a woman that you're really into, but you're not entirely sure the feeling is mutual. To provide you with some answers, watch for signs that indicate she is really interested in you.

1 She Wants to Know the Inner You

A woman who is interested in you will ask questions to get to know you better, says Gretchen Rubin, author of the "New York Times" Bestseller, "The Happiness Project." Rather than solely ask basic questions, such as where you're from and what you're studying, she will ask questions that dig deeper. For example, she may ask why you picked a certain school or how you feel about a particular topic. She may ask questions to better understand or clarify a discussion you are having.

2 She's Attentive Towards You

If a woman is interested in you, she will let you know that she's been thinking about you. You might receive a text saying "hello" or "good morning." She will pay attention to what you say and remember things you enjoy. If you mentioned that you love horror movies, she might rent one of the latest horror movies for you to watch together. If you get sick, she might ask if there's anything that you need.

3 Her Body Language Is Friendly

A woman will usually be completely facing you if she is interested, asserts Rubin. She may be leaning forward towards you and will give you her full attention. She won't be distracted with her cell phone, the people around her or a television in the background. She may smile frequently at you and may touch your arm while she is talking. She most likely will maintain good eye contact. If someone is interested in another person, her pupils tend to get larger, notes Health Guidance.

4 She Wants to Be a Part of Your Life

A woman who is interested in you will want to be active in your life outside of your direct interaction with her. She will want to meet your friends and family. She may want to share in activities and hobbies that you enjoy, or at the very least, learn about them. She will want to spend a lot of time with you, regardless of what you will be doing together.
