I have occasionally seen a few women over my lifetime, put their hand either brushing past their face, nose, or their eye areas and even briefly brushing the side of their face by their ears and moving their hair just once as ive made eye contact. Unsure of what they symbolised however as i’ve always been used to the solo lifestyle.
The images shown on this page are some of the most reliable individual signals. However, the use of a single signal by a woman does not indicate total attraction but is rather an indicator of interest. As the individual signals become more frequent, clustered and obvious, the more interested (or desperate) is the woman. For example it’s quite common for woman in a nightclub to be subtle in her signaling early in the evening but as the night progresses and she still hasn’t attracted a man these signals can become increasingly obvious.
Quick, jerky movements don’t mean that the situation is hopeless. If you’re coming on super strong, back off a little bit. Be sure that you’re not dominating the conversation or complimenting her too much. If you’re not sure, check out How to Flirt for some tips on turning the conversation around.
Look for mirrored movements. Often, a woman who is interested will subconsciously mirror your movements. This shows that the two of you are on the same wavelength and can thus increase intimacy in the relationship. That’s why dancing is considered intimate or sexy—it forces you to mirror each other’s movements! 
#11 Flips her hair. When a woman plays with her hair, she’s flirting without even realizing it. Look for signs that include running her fingers through her hair, twirling a lock around her finger, flipping her hair back and so on.
#4 Smiles more. Smiling is one of the top indicators when trying to figure out if a girl likes you. This simply means she enjoys your company and doesn’t mind having you around. Take note of how she reacts to others. If she smiles just as widely and as often, then you may have to look out for other cues of interest. But if you’re certain that she’s treating you to a bulk of her smiles, you have it in the bag.
#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]
You can imagine a group of girls conversing when a man walks in and he’s the topic of conversation. They instantly grow quiet, avert their eyes, freeze awkwardly, not wanting to be noticed. Even though, the women can’t be heard, they still flash frozen in fear. Women will usually flash freeze with their hands, but also their feet. This is viewed as a change in stride pattern while walking, or a momentary pause in speech.
Contrary to what you may have read elsewhere about reading female body language, there is no sure-fire way of perfectly understanding these courtship gestures every time. Women may project them consciously (and sometimes just for sport), or they may be totally unaware of what their bodies are saying. A woman may even show physical interest through her body language because she subconsciously wants to be desired while actually rejecting a suitor because she is consciously aware that she is married. This is self reassurance behaviour.
First I retreat to a porta-potty. Hopping up and down (and wondering what it would take to tip this sucker over), I shake my arms and exhale my “ha-ha-has.” A few minutes later, the pit in my stomach has disappeared and both my body and mind are more relaxed. Striding back toward the diamond to watch the last inning, I try to walk with an assertive posture, keeping my head level, my eyes straight ahead.

Each gender has a different body-language and female body language secrets are different than that are of men. If you feel your girl isn’t being genuine to you, you are most probably right. Women are usually not good at hiding their feelings for a long time especially when they are angry or upset.
Any facial expression can briefly appear as a microexpression. If a woman is happy but trying to conceal it, it’s only a matter of time until a smile briefly flashes across her face. If she’s trying to hide a negative emotion that will eventually be revealed as well. She may briefly crinkle her nose (the sign for disgust) or curl just one corner of her lip back (contempt). If you see a microexpression that suggests one these negative emotions it’s probably time to change environments or topic of conversation.
Of course, gaining that fluency will take practice. In the meantime, rather than trying to adhere to a long mental checklist of powerful poses, Gruenfeld recommends picking one or two nonverbal techniques to focus on. For example, keeping your elbows on the arms of your chair (rather than against your sides); making direct and sustained eye contact; or using a lower, more authoritative voice. If you can do one or two of those things consistently, she says, “the rest of your psychology will catch up.”
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…
Her head and torso are angled to face you. But one or both of her feet are angled away. The engagement is not complete and she may not be completely sure she wants to make close contact. As she is wavering but still looking in your direction, it might still be worth walking over to say, “Hi.”
Unless we are desperate, beyond horny or just downright bored, we women won’t make it easy for you to catch us. It’s bad enough that men think wooing women is completely pointless so whether we are at a coffee shop, the library, a soccer game or at a bar, we like to know that you’re paying attention and making the effort to take note of our signals and cues.
Keep in mind that most of these things aren’t conscious actions for women. Although some, like eye contact and smiling, are always conscious, things like fidgeting and mirroring your movements are most likely involuntary things, so try not to read too much into things. Also don’t go too hard.
Flared nostrils. When women are interested or aroused, their nostrils flare. It’s an involuntary response to excitement, so, like dilated pupils, you can be pretty sure she’s genuinely interested if her nostrils are flared.
“She’s not always screaming for attention. It can just be confidence in herself and her sexuality,” says sex therapist Chris Donaghue, Ph.D., who adds that cleavage aside, another non-verbal cue to watch for is to see if her body is turned toward you and leaning in as you talk.
While consideration for others is obviously a positive personality trait, endless worry about tact and politeness is not only anxiety producing, it’s disempowering. My needless apologies during soccer games are a demoralizing refrain, as though I’m constantly telling myself, “You stink.” And every time I agree to leave my writing desk early because my neighbor suggests that her kids have an evening playdate with mine (mom code for “free childcare”), I’m putting her schedule and objectives ahead of my own. So when a friend tells me about an executive education class for women called “Acting with Power,” I can’t help seeing it as a sign.
The reason I’ve got this book – is my shyness. Yes, I admit this part of me and actually, I try to fight it. Communications with friends and family – is one thing, but relationships with my boyfriend is another. This book helps me with self-discovering and now I can feel myself absolutely unselfconscious with him. Can say it’s easy but the prize for getting this right is worth the effort.
Look for mirroring gestures from the girl you are talking to. Mirroring can signify the rapport between you, a sign that you two are getting along quite well. It happens when the person subtly copies the other person’s body language. Examples are leaning towards one another, crossing or uncrossing legs and arm movements. If she moves farther back away from you, take this as a sign she wants to escape from you or reject you.
Once a man approaches, flirting becomes more about leaning in close, laughing, and touching. In fact, touching is very attractive and persuasive; even accidental touching can lead to intimacy. So caress your glass, find an excuse to slide into the seat next to him, and get better acquainted.
When she looks squarely in the eyes, everything that comes out of her mouth is true. Also, she won’t look away either. This way you can easily tell that whatever she is saying is important and want you to have a good listen to it.
Do you ever wish there was a magic wand that would make you more attractive to the opposite sex, or at least help you understand who is attracted to you? Well, it’s no magic but a science. Here’s how men and women can learn to master the art of love.
Last week, relationship expert Bree Maresca-Kramer gave us some great tips on how to read guys’ body language. Now it’s time to give the boys a little insight into how we work. Sometimes a hair twirl is just a hair twirl, but it can mean so much more.
I’m always amazed at how many guys overlook touch when it comes to attraction. Women don’t touch guys they’re not interested in. That includes a lot of “accidental” touching. For a variety of complex evolutionary reasons, men tend to initiate while women tend to put on the brakes. What this means is that while you might initiate an overt touch, she probably won’t. What she’ll do instead is “accidentally” touch you.
