How do I know if she likes me, and I'm a girl?

This is a long story. So there's this girl that I've known for two years now. We're both in 10th grade and go to the same school. We met back in freshman year, in algebra class. She actually sat next to me and it was a bit awkward cause we didn't know each other. But after awhile, we started talking more and more each day. Couple months later, I began having a slight crush on her. But this isn't the first time I had a crush on a girl (I'll bring that story up later). I hated math, especially algebra, but she was the reason why I loved it. My teacher suddenly changed our seats so we were no longer partners. We always said to each other, how much we missed being partners and stuff. Other than that one class we had together, we've never talked so I couldn't get close to her.

Now that we are in 10th grade, we're actually really close friends. There was this one time I was at the mall with my friends, and one of my friend invited her and we all hung out. After that day, we exchanged numbers and eventually got really close. Ever since then, things got weird between us. But a good kind of weird. We don't have any classes together this year, so I try to hang out with her outside of school as much as I can. Since my school is right across the street from the mall, we just hang out there. I don't know if I'm getting the wrong signals but I'm convinced that she likes me or maybe has an interest in me. When we text, we always say how much we love each other and it's almost like a competition because we want to show and express how much we do (if that makes sense). I was really curious one day to see if she has an interest in me and if she would actually date me. So I asked her "if you were a guy, would you date me?" She said yes but also gave me a big explanation why. I also asked the same question to my other friends just to see the difference between there's and hers. Honestly hers seemed longer and much more in debt than the others. But I thought that she was just being friendly. But, there was this one time, I went to the movie theater with my sister. I told her that I bumped into someone I knew in my old school and kept hitting on me and didn't leave me alone and she said that she wished she went, so she can say that we're going out and in a relationship so he can leave me alone. I don't know if that means anything, but that was two times her mentioning about being in a relationship with me. She's always giving me the best compliments all the time. Saying how much I'm beautiful, or how I'm so sweet and caring, etc. People say if someone likes you, look out for that kind of stuff cause they might actually have an interest. Also if they stare at you for a long amount of time and then when you look at them, they look away fast. Well that all happened to me with her. I always catch her doing those things. She's a bit shy, so she doesn't hug that much or anything else. So I normally just give her high fives, when ever I see her in the hall ways. And when I do, our hands collide together and we hold hands for a couple of seconds and let go. Also when ever she sees me, she always smiles at me. I try to look to see if she does it to other people but it seems like she smiles at me the most. We're really close but we have our own group of friends. So when ever I'm with friends, she makes any excuses to come and see me. One time I was with friends and we had this thing called spirit week, and all grades were outside at the field on the bleachers but we weren't sitting next to each other. She came from behind and pulled my hair but forgot to say YAGA. Now see the thing about yaga's, is when you pull someone's hair you HAVE to say YAGA but she didn't. So you can obviously see that she just came over to see me. Also she admitted that I was the reason why she wakes up every day in the morning to go to school just so she can see me. I was joking around with her and she said she hates going to school and hates waking up so early. I said you're wrong because I'm the reason why you do it even though you hate it and she said you're right. And said (my name) is the only reason why I wake up in the morning and go to school. Right after that, I really was convinced she likes me cause everyone hates school and only has at least one reason to give them that extra push to go and I was her reason. Of coarse they're more other signs but those are the ones I feel like are the most important.

I want to tell her badly how I feel but I can't, I'm too afraid. When I was in 7th grade, I went to catholic school and that was my first year there. I fell in love with this girl and I thought she liked me. She was always flirting with me, touching me, etc. That was the first time I ever fell for a girl. It was scary when she flirted with me because I liked her and I was shy. She kept leading me on but never admitted that she liked me. I was so in love with her, that she appeared in my dreams, she was always on my mind, I couldn't eat or sleep knowing that she's not next to me, and I imagine making out with her and touching her, etc. I couldn't take it anymore, keeping something so big and not telling her. So I decided to tell her, and I did during Christmas break. I told her I'm in love with you and she said didn't feel the same way and that she doesn't go that way. Literally broke me up and I felt like I was dying right after. We became distant and stopped talking and texting and suddenly we weren't friends anymore and then my friends that we both hung out together, stopped talking to me. I had no friends during 8th grade and I didn't even go to prom. I hated myself for admitting something so huge like that to a person and I promised myself I wouldn't fall for another person like that again. When I graduated I totally left all that behind me and started fresh. But then in high school, I found someone else again. I am in love with this girl, but I learned how to control it this time. I'm trying not to get my hopes up but I just want to be with her. My mind is both saying yes tell her but then I get too scared and don't. I'm lost and I don't know what to do. I'm afraid that if I do tell her, it'll just be like middle school again. I am bi sexual, I do like both guys and girls. I see myself more with a girl then I do with guys. I accepted myself as what I am but I don't know what to do because it seems like I fall in love with the wrong people. Do you think she likes me? What should I do?

Let me say that I'm actually quite baffled at the detail you put into this to help us and I'm impressed :). I think that she likes you because you are that one reason to make her get up for school and has her wanting to go. She wants to see you all the time as you do too and that's a good thing!! I suggest you ask her about her feelings she has for you first. Be suttle and make sure your alone so she can explain to you how she feels. If she is to afraid to then just tell her it's alright and remind her that you're there for her and willing to listen no matter what. It shows you care and also she may be more open toward telling you. If you really want to tell her, then make sure she is alright with lgbt relationships and people. I suggest you be very calm and not rush or scare her with questions or statements. If she is shy then be very suttle when telling her your feelings and like wise for her. Taking a chance is needed sometimes, and it can lead to great things!! Be confident in yourself, im sure it will go oer well and better than you think. and if se loves you then youre good!! and plus wheather she likes you the same or not, if shes a true best friend, she wont judge you and shell stick with you no matter what! But yeah be gentle and also if your both shy then go somewhere quiet and where you can be alone. I wish you the best of luck and hope everything works out for you! :) if you need any more help with anything or need talk or just want someone to be a friend I'm here for ya!

I think she likes you so just go for it and if she does reject you then who cares because that means she's not the one but love is the reason to live so if she says no then keep looking for ❤️ love. I really do think she likes you though cause by crush and even my closest friends don't do anything near that. Dang I think she loves you so go for it.
