The secret signs she is angry at you
It can be hard to tell when a girl is angry at you if you don’t know the signs to look for. But once you know, it is more than obvious. Often, women expect you to be able to pick up on these signs, and will get even more annoyed when you fail to realise anything is wrong.
She doesn’t make an effort
She may usually be the one to call or text you first, but now she waits for you to say something. She doesn’t bother making plans with you, and does not seem to care either way if you make plans. This is an easily missed sign of her being angry. You may not even notice the difference, or you may assume she is busy. The longer it takes for you to notice that she is freezing you out, the more annoyed she will get. This is perhaps the easiest sign to notice and one of the first to appear.
Taking her time
Pay attention to deviations from the usual amount of time it takes for her to message or call you back. If she is practically glued to her phone, you know something is wrong if suddenly her replies to your messages are delayed. This is especially obvious if she takes all afternoon to send a one-word text. She may even send stronger hints by sending your calls to voicemail after a few rings. The point is for you to realise that she is rejecting your calls, and for you to figure out that something is wrong.
When she is angry at you, she is not going to display her usual warmth towards you. This sign is actually a lot more obvious to you than it is to her, as it will come to her naturally. She hugs you like you’re a sibling rather than a romantic partner, and she’s stopped using terms of affection like “babe” or “honey”. She may avoid kissing you, or only go for quick pecks.
You’re less funny
She normally finds you endlessly amusing, but any jokes you crack are now met with silence. Her finding you less funny can happen without her even noticing- you are getting on her nerves by not noticing she is angry, and you only become more annoying in your attempts to make jokes. She may also do this on purpose, giving you withering looks each time you say something funny.
She says “do what you want”
There are a few phrases with huge hidden meanings. A guy without much relationship experience may be thrilled to hear “I’m fine”, “I don’t care” or “you do whatever you want”, taking these statements at face value. However, look at the context. These phrases can be understood to mean the exact opposite. She is not fine, she does care, and don’t you dare do what you want! You need to ask more questions in order to get to the bottom of the issue.
