#3 Gets physical. Similar to the point above, women only touch people they like. Come to think of it, this is the case for everyone on planet Earth. If she starts getting physical with you, you can be sure that she is showing interest.
Look into her eyes for signs of flirting. A direct look that lasts longer than a few seconds can indicate interest. If the woman’s pupils become dilated while you stare into her eyes, she may be getting aroused and want to see more of you. To avoid coming off as threatening, a woman may hold your gaze for a quick moment, but return for a second look to assure you of her interest. When that second look is accompanied by a smile, she is flirting with you.
Consider the stance of the woman. If her feet or legs are pointing toward you, then she is most likely interested, according to mass communication scholar Callie Poole of Shepherd University. The shoulders also can be revealing. If she leans her shoulders forward when you speak, she is ready to flirt. By the same token, if she positions her feet toward the door, she is most likely getting ready to bolt. When she turns her shoulders away from you, even though she may continue speaking with you, she is not interested.
Look at her legs. Often times, an interested woman will cross her legs. This is an especially good sign if her top leg is pointed towards you. She may also stroke her lower thigh or smooth her pants as or before she does this to further draw attention to her legs.
Hahaha, oh my god this was so great. The part that talks about guys touching their parts and spreading their legs as a show of dominance was really funny, they finally have a name for when a guy does that and takes up all the room on public transport, called manspreading. XD
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).
The third thing going on is that if she rejects him in front of the other women there, he will be seen as a loser and unacceptable to all the other women, too. At his deepest level is the fear that he will never find a mate to produce his offspring with his DNA. This is like a foreseen death! At a conscious level, this is ridiculous, but at the DNA level it is a terrifyingly real fear. That fear comes from his old brain that is still wired from millions of years ago!
I’m a woman, and I must say, from a woman’s perspective not all of the body language signals mentioned here are completely accurate. I’m no expert, but given the highly individualistic and subjective nature of body language, I think this book did a good job in discussing the more commonly observed ones.
Similar body examples of comfort and the freeze response can be seen just about anywhere in the body. For instance, if a woman always keeps her head straight and never crosses her legs it can be a sign the woman feels tension and discomfort. When a woman feels comfortable however, she will occasionally assume more relaxed and vulnerable positions during the interaction by tilting her head to the side or crossing her legs (when sitting or standing). Body language signals like these show a woman who is relaxed and at ease.
Most women aren’t very good at flirting, their ways of flirting can be as simple as starting a conversation and asking you about yourself. Girls that were flirting with me in the past would almost always ask me a ton of questions.
Reading female body language has never been easier. For women, twirling or flicking their hair is a favourite flirting gesture. Why this has such an effect on men is a hotly debated subject. The ‘Definitive Book of Body Language’ (Allan and Barbara) allegedly claims that it allows a woman to expose her armpit and thus “waft” pheromones to the man. (Huh?) Another explanation is that it is a casual way of exposing her neck – a well known erogenous zone. Some researchers even claim it attracts attention to her “healthy” hair. We admit it – we just don’t know. Still, it’s a great signal to watch out for.
http://datingarchitect.com/signs-that… This is a video clip on body language and indicators of interest (IOIs). This video clip is part of a documentary (UK’s Channel 4 – Body Talk “Sex”) that reveals the body “tells” women use to indicate their interest in men. The host constructed a club-like environment and analyzed how the women responded to certain men. The women in the video used certain body signals to reveal how they really felt about the men they were talking to.
In the sideways glance over raised shoulder, a woman will turn her back slightly facing the object of her interest, raise her shoulder, and gaze adoringly over it with eyes cast upward. The cue is made more salient in a strapless dress! The sideways glance over raised shoulder says “I’m looking over my raised shoulder to tease and flirt by showing off my curvy shoulder and making you do a bit of chasing to secure my full one-on-one attention.”
It can be difficult at times to discern if a woman really likes you or not. Is she actually attracted to you, or is she just being polite? Most single men would like to find out before they make a fool of themselves. One of the best ways to determine this is through the body language of women.
This, of course, is a seduction technique, so it’s so to speak on a level where she isn’t just interested in you — she’s actively trying to seduce you. That means that she’s unlikely to do it while still deciding how attracted to you she is. And women who don’t actively go out to seduce men, likely won’t do it at all unless it’s an unconscious reaction she has when thinking of kissing you!
A woman may become suddenly childlike. For example, she could begin to tease or tickle a man, sneak up from behind and steal a hat or other belonging. She might also sneak up from behind and cover a man’s eyes, as just a few examples.
Beyond those flirting behaviors, once a man approached, women also touched in a number of ways to show interest as well. Often, they caressed an object, or the man’s face, arm, leg, or back. Or, the woman might position herself so her knee, thigh, or foot were touching the man to show interest. In some instances, a woman might even initiate a hug or hang off a man.
Reading a female’s use of shoes and her feet as part of her body language could fill a book on its own. We may later dedicate an entire page to this form of subtle communication. The Shoe Dangle is a strong but subtle message to a man. Translated it says: “By half slipping off my shoe I’m indicating that I am relaxed, comfortable and may be willing to undress further.” Also, for many men (even those that won’t admit it), the female foot is (strangely) attractive. Women worldwide spend Billions of Dollars on footwear and pedicures and they do it for a reason!
Perhaps she places her elbows on the table and then she rests her face on her hands by framing them on either side of her face. This is also so she can cover any double chin and put her best face forward.
And additionally, plan ahead and let the men know you are a healthy woman and proud of it by showing a little skin on shoulders, upper arms, and back — and anywhere else socially acceptable. Men love to see a woman’s skin! Clean, clear, and smooth skin is a sign of good health, and that is high on men’s unconscious desired traits in a mate so he can produce healthy offspring. This mating game is serious business, so don’t leave anything to chance.
Eye widening is any act done to make the eyes appear bigger than normal through raising the eyebrows or lifting the eyelids. Women have also taken to the habit of plucking their eyebrows. This has the effect of creating more space around the eyes causing others to perceive them more favourably. A wider eye is more childlike and friendly. Eye widening is a positive nonverbal cue indicating that someone is observing positive stimuli, stimuli that bring them joy and happiness or surprise and shock.
The first thing you can usually observe in male and female relations is that the girl makes eye contact with the guy she likes, and once the guy has spotted the girl making eye contact the two of them will lock each others gazes for a few seconds until she looks away. The guy then confused, sits there watching whether she does it again, which she usually does and this time smiles or giggles a bit giving the guy the confirmation he needs to decide to approach the girl. However, before doing so the guy and girl alike will both start grooming themselves: the guy will fix his tie if he has one on, straighten his pants and shirt as he gets up, and the girl will start playing with her jewelry, fiddling with her hair and crossing her legs. Once the guy reaches the girl to talk they will initiate a conversation of some sort – short into the conversation you can usually see how things are going. In the best case scenarios they are joking around, she is laughing as she taps his wrist, arm or shoulder sometimes even removing pieces of lint from his clothing as a sign of affection and caring. All these subtle physical touches slowly create an intimacy, as they are both opening up and getting comfortable in each others Intimate Zone.
Subordinate people will laugh simply to appease more dominant people, and dominant people exclude themselves from the laugh so as to maintain their dominance. Controlling laugher therefore, can help control our dominance or submission to others, as well as show our acceptance or rejection of others. In a dating context, watch for laughter and giggling that seems uncontrollable proving that a woman is really lost in the moment. If she makes a lot of eye contact, smiles, blushes, and acts animated in your presence; she probably really likes you.
