If she is interested, she will tend to subconsciously lean her body towards you. For example, she would try to put her face on one or both hands and lean towards you while she’s listening. It is a scientific fact that all of us would tend to gravitate towards those we are comfortable with and attracted to most of the 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!
A woman who is interested in a man might do things like playfully grab his arm, poke him, bump into him or touch his chest, shoulder or leg. There are many possibilities here. The girl in question will look for any excuse to touch you.
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.
If a woman slowly touches her own body, or face, in a seductive manner, it makes you think of doing the same. In other words: it’s one of the oldest tricks in the seduction book to make a man think of you in a sexual manner. If she is aware of seduction techniques, she might very well try this one on you if she likes you!
What’s more, when a woman arches her back, she stretches up, which, draws attention to her. Think of it as a peacock strutting its feathers… And if you start paying attention to your own behavior, you’re sure to notice that you stand a bit taller when you next see a beautiful woman.
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.
When evaluating signs of female attraction, you need to pay attention not just to what she’s doing, but also the context in which she does it. Her signs of attraction aren’t a statement or even a paragraph. They’re a whole story and you have to look at everything before making your final determination.
The human body is pretty hairless. Other than a gene manipulated cat and near extinct shrew; there are no other mammals that are as hairless as humans. (We don’t include fish, reptiles or birds in this analogy.) Long, flowing hair has always been a sign of feminine health and thus sexuality and child bearing ability. By tossing her hair a woman is essentially saying: “look at me and my suitability. I am happy, confident and very healthy!” Long hair is feminine while short hair is masculine. If this wasn’t the case why do so many (male-orientated) lesbians shave their hair as a statement?
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.
Tight Legs: Unlike other crossed leg gestures that show negativity, defensiveness or uncertainty, when women cross their legs in a flirtation environment and don’t use other negative gestures such as crossing their arms, this indicates the female is trying to draw attention to her legs by tightly pressuring one leg firmly against the other to emphasize their high muscle tone. Psychiatrist Dr Albert Scheflen goes on to even suggest that such a gesture is the position a body takes when the person is preparing for sexual performance.
There are a number of theories into why men are so clueless when it comes to reading a woman’s body language. But when you think about it, what does it matter knowing a bunch of theory about why something doesn’t work?
A woman’s body language will tell you everything you need to know about how she is feeling. To help you read these non-verbal signals, here are some body language examples that will provide insight into how a woman feels when she’s around you.
Also, remember pacing: if you get it wrong once, try again. That’s to say, if she shows signs she isn’t interested, then step back. Build her trust. Engage her in fun and intimate conversation. Match and mirror her body language. Show you have somewhere else to be soon and won’t bother her forever. Show you have a life and won’t attach yourself to her like a plaster. Show you’re a caring person. Show you have integrity. Show you have things in common. Show there are other women who desire you so that you don’t come across as desperate. Show you don’t need her approval — you’re confident no matter what she thinks of you. And soon she’s likely to start to relax.
o Emotive energy such as being excited, relaxed, etc. Note: If you practice this with somebody the key is to be subtle and not be a copycat. There is a natural rhythm to the process, which is the key.
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.
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.

A woman is drawing your attention to her if she tosses her hair from her shoulders and face to expose her bare skin. Unconsciously twirling hair strand on her finger and/or slowly running fingers through her hair are also signs of interest. Apparently, if she jerkily touches her hair, she could be feeling impatient or embarrassed. Do not feel hopeless, though. You can fix things by not being over dominating as you speak to her.
Watch her hands. Women touch their erogenous zones when they are very interested and are absolutely flirting with you. They will touch their lips and may apply lipstick when they know you are watching. When they touch their necks, they are feeling sexy, and if they rub their thigh as they cross and uncross their legs, they are sending flirtatious signals.
