With limbs, lungs, and lips suitably primed, we move on to a drama lesson. Gruenfeld and Kostopoulos begin with a scene about two actresses jockeying for status on a movie set. Gruenfeld starts out confidently dominant and Kostopoulos, meekly deferential—the fundamental styles of interaction that directors call playing low status and playing high status. Then suddenly they change posture: Gruenfeld’s friendly demeanor morphs into barely disguised scorn. And Kostopoulos, with her shoulders hunched and her toes turned inward, transforms into a shy, schoolgirlish wisp of a thing. As the scene continues to unfold, it becomes clear that the power gradient between them has nothing to do with the script, and everything to do with how they use their bodies.
When an interested man looks at a woman she will often look down and away. She then will look back at the man out of the corner of her eye to see if she still has his attention. These are signs of attraction. If the “games is played correctly, a relationship may be the result. I agree with don Mateo Sol when he says (above) that its all done subconsciously. The “game” of attraction is not intentional, it’s just how people work.
Eye contact can go a few different ways. If she’s making a lot of eye contact with you it generally means that she’s interested. However, this is an ambiguous type of body language. She might be looking away because she’s nervous, not uninterested. The thing that you need to do if she appears to be nervous is get her to relax a little. Check in with her body language from time to time to see if she’s letting herself relax a bit. If you can move her from nervous to calm, cool and collected, you won’t need to keep looking at her body language to know that she’s having a great time.
The only time this does not apply is with women who are shy, or ashamed of their bodies. These women tend to hutch over as they’re scared if they’re exposed you’ll see something you do not like. Always look upon a woman’s personality as a totality: if she is shy her behavior is different from an outgoing seductress. There are different reasons women get nervous in your presence, but for shy women that’s often a sign they like you. Unless of course, they just feel intimidated by you, but that difference should be pretty clear if you’re paying attention!
Women struggle with trying to stand their ground while not intimidating men. From a body language perspective this happens in a number of ways. Women use cues of ‘submissiveness’ to show vulnerability, but also can employ certain moves for assertiveness to show they are not pushovers.

The second thing that makes this approaching-a-woman action scary is that all the other guys are watching. If she rejects him, then all the guys will see him as a “failed hunter” and chuckle. That is instinctual hostility in men’s DNA that comes along with an unconscious desire to see him fail! That makes the odds better for their own success in getting a mate! This comes in men’s DNA from millions of years of competing for breeding rights with the females. This attitude is stupid in today’s world, but these instincts are ingrained deeply in the male old brain and come along with the testosterone. Some guys even turn it into a game of “dare” for their buddies so they can see them fail.
However, before exploring the progression of signals it is vital to be able to recognise some of the basics. For most men “seeing” even the most simple of signals can be challenge. Fear of rejection is the reason. This page should help with reading female body language.
The leg twine is one of the most appealing sitting positions for women. It occurs when one leg is tightly pressed against the other making it appear extremely toned.

When the curtain eventually falls on Gruenfeld’s class, I am inspired but unsettled. As much fun as it was to unleash my haughty side, I certainly wouldn’t want to cultivate such an unlikable persona. So I ask Gruenfeld if she thinks it’s possible to be powerful without being a jerk.
The age-old question of determining whether a woman likes a man is one that has been asked since the beginning of time. Despite all this time, men still haven’t figured out when it’s okay to make a move and when they need to back off. A majority of the male population either makes a move too early or too late. Sure, there are some Alpha pros out there who are stars at the game but generally speaking, most men bugger it up.
The second class of signals relates to a woman’s health and youth – her sexuality and sexual assets. Some of those signals include auto contact self touching, bending over or pushing the rump in a man’s direction, leaving legs uncrossed or re-crossing them in view, leg twine, putting the chest on display, tossing the head, playing or flicking the hair, object caress, suggestive lip licking, pouting, removing clothing or playing with shoes, hiking the skirt, grooming, the parade or catwalk and hip tilting,
Many assume if a woman invests $10,000 in a boob job she’s obviously looking for compliments. That can certainly be true. “Yes, I want compliments! Absolutely,” laughs Michelle, who got her breasts augmented to a size 34DD.
Overall, I would give this book a big thumbs up in that it is concise, well-structured, and gives valid information that a purchaser of this book would be looking for. There is no wool over the eyes here – my smile says I like it, my lips say it is a must read!
Most female sexual signals have some component that is rooted in appearing submissive. By displaying in a certain way, a woman is telling men that she is willing to head to a man’s dominance. Others signals are designed to showcase the physical assets of a woman, primarily her youth and health. The final category includes cues that indicate approach is permitted and encouraged. These are the cues that draw men in and give them permission to court.

This goes beyond touching her hair. Playing with one’s hair signifies femininity. If she twisting it around her fingers she’s trying to draw your attention to her. It could also be an indication that she’s getting bored, so you’d better do something to spark her interest.
These include palms up rather than down, hands gesturing rather than stuffed in pockets, arms and legs uncrossed, torsos facing toward rather than away, not hiding behind barriers which can include drinks held across the chest, stools or tables, relaxed facial expressions, and smiling.
Sometimes you’ll also notice a woman subtly bite or lick her lower lips while talking to you. Or she’ll sometimes make a show of putting on her lipstick in front of you. You see, a woman’s mouth is like a sexual gateway and these little things that she does are all designed to draw your attention towards her mouth. So if you notice a woman doing any of these things, she’s definitely sexually attracted to you and wants you to make a move on her.

A follow-up study by Moore and Butler (1989) evaluated some of these behaviors more thoroughly. In this case, the researchers were interested in finding out which of these flirting and “solicitation” behaviors actually worked to get men to approach. The team again camped out in bars — this time observing the differences in behavior between single women who were approached by a man versus women who did not get approached.
