Sometimes a woman in a group will raise her voice to draw attention to herself as well; together with the giggling it’s a sign she’s trying to catch your attention. Unless of course she’s just tipsy or giggly as a person…
To some degree I feel that you’re right in that many aspects of mens masculinity is learned rather than evolved. Crying for instance is perfectly natural in many cultures for men. But I’ve tried to keep the entire body language series to mainly innate qualities within humans rather than learned ones :).

Just like you, I’m frustrated that all the books, resources and courses out there on body language focus on exactly the wrong thing: what a facial expression or a gesture means in isolation. That’s not how it works – our body parts work in harmony to create an overall message.
Remember that body language is a representation of the unconscious and very often we deal with limited and incomplete information. I doubt that anyone would show attraction to anyone else if their full set of flaws were showing all at once and initially upon meeting. Therefore, no signals of seduction by a woman will ever be foolproof and accurate as a representation of her complete impression of someone, since the impression itself is incomplete. Impressions are fleeting and ever-changing, especially at the initial stages of a relationship. However, since body language occurs naturally and instantly, we can gauge and watch the evolution of people’s perception of us over time.
Pheromone Hair: This is one of the first gestures used by women during flirtation. Usually, they will flick their hair backwards over their shoulder or move it to the side with their hand as a way to display the face better, even if the woman only has short hair. Apart from emphasizing their delicate facial features by flicking their hair, women do this gesture because it allows them to lift up their arm and in the process expose their arm pit where the ‘sex perfume’ known as pheromone scent is released for the male to smell (it was stronger in our primitive ancestors).
This sexual cue involves removing clothing or pulling up a long sleeved shirt, stroking the wrist with the other hand, turning the palms up while gesticulating, holding a wine between the fingers palm-up, or casually playing with an earring or the side of the causing the wrists to be exposed. It says, “I wish to submit to your dominance so I’m exposing my delicate and vulnerable wrists.” Exposures of the wrist, palm and neck are a visceral responses linked to submissiveness. Flashing of the wrist indicates that trust is present during courtship.
She’ll playfully toss her hair exposing her neck, she’ll grab a strand of hair and begin stroking it, she’ll twirl the ends of her hair around. She’ll do any of these things while she’s talking to, looking at, or around a guy she’s interested in.
Keep your eyes on her. Not only will it help you to build attraction, it will also help you to recognize the attraction she’s throwing at you. Particularly with shy or reserved girls, this might be the only attraction sign you’re going to get. So be on the look out.
“Shake off your context,” Gruenfeld encourages us. “You’re freeing yourself from the way your body reinforces your presumed place in the social hierarchy.” And it’s true: In this room full of clown-faced, raspberry-blowing business execs, any semblance of hierarchy has evaporated.
If you ever find yourself with a woman in this great case, I suggest you giving her a sexually charged compliment because this is actually one of the greatest and most ideal ways to give a woman’s sexual come-on a response.
#6 Looks at your lips. If she looks at your lips more than once, she’s definitely interested. I can guarantee that she’s imagining those lips on hers and evaluating their thickness and ability to please her mouth. If her eyes dart to your lips often enough for you to notice, trust me when I say that she’s checking you out.
Are you in a room full of people but always catching her looking at you? Perhaps she’s just staring and smiling. If she’s not looking at anyone else, it’s a pretty good indication that she is only interested in you.
Some women are overtly flirtatious, but others don’t make it too obvious that they are flirting or interested. It can be a challenge for some guys to figure it out. With a little reading and experience, you’ll easily be able to figure it out.
#9 Arms by her side. So long as she has her arms by her side, you have a way in. This indicates openness and willingness to participate in the moment. If she crosses her arms, you can be sure that she’s absentmindedly protecting herself against your pursuits, so lay off. [Read: 10 clear signs you should back off when you’re pursuing a girl]
In order to get the attention of the man she’s interested in, she would use her hair to give signals. She starts to flip and comb them gently. She twirls strands of it and gently run her fingers through it. Her hair could be her ultimate tool to flirt. However, quick jerky movements would give you an idea that she is getting embarrassed and impatient especially when paired with wandering eyes. This does not mean that you’re in a hopeless situation. It’s possible that you are just so aggressive, so you need to back off a little and make her feel at ease.
