Likewise, flirting doesn’t mean that someone actually likes you. It means they want to flirt with you. Bartenders often flirt with everyone. Sales people too. They have no intention of taking it anywhere beyond making you smile; ensuring you’re having a good time.
Remember what I said above about eye contact. Looking you in the eye? That’s just polite. “Gazing” at you? That’s something entirely. And so it is with personal questions. Going through the “where are you from, what do you do, where did you go to school” rigamarole isn’t a sign of attraction. Asking questions specifically tailored to who you are, the conversation the two of you are having that help her to get at who you really are deep down, that’s a sign of attraction.
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.
I suddenly found myself noticing people at crosswalk across the street and very clearly notice what people were doing in their cars out of the far corner of my eye and to this day my brain still maintains this ability clear as the day I trained it.
In earlier posts, I have discussed how to flirt and be attractive in general, and I have shared research on how to get a guy’s (or gal’s) attention. Yet I still get emails from women asking how to let a guy know they are interested — and get him to approach them. I also get emails from men who want tips, beyond basic body language cues, that help them know a woman is really interested in them.
Facial Pedestal: When a woman joins her hands together by putting one over the other and resting her face on them, it doesn’t have anything to do with the “Head Support” boredom gesture. In fact this gesture reveals the total opposite meaning as it means she likes the company of the man and wants to display her face on a pedestal to gain his attention and let him admire her. Giving a compliment and the use of some flattery in those moments seems to get many men very far.
Foot pointing is another highly accurate attraction gesture when understood correctly. Foot pointing shows interest! If your crush has both of his feet pointing toward you during conversation, you have his full attention. If he then shifts one or both of his feet toward something else, his attention has gone elsewhere. To be clear, his interest may be in the conversation you are having with him, or he may just be interested in you, AKA, attraction. If your crush constantly has his feet pointing in your direction (even when not speaking with him), he is attracted to you!
This could be an evidence that the two of you are getting well together and are ready for the next level- the courtship stage. For example, you may lean towards each other at the same time. However, lack of mirroring does not necessarily indicate a lack of attraction between the two of you. It just means that you haven’t reached that level of intimacy yet.
Be Warned: Female Body Language is very much open to interpretation. Many signals have different meanings depending on the person/situation. Keep this mind when you assess female body language signals.
The direction where her knee is pointing can also signify certain meanings. It can suggest desire if her knee points at you. It can indicate the opposite if her knee points away from you. She may consciously or unconsciously point her cross-legged knee, regardless if she is sitting or standing while chatting with someone toward something or someone she is really thinking about.
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.”
Once he realized attraction was something he could learn, Brian spent way too much of his free time studying and practicing everything he could find on the subject. He stumbled across The Art of Charm podcast and eventually signed up for an AoC bootcamp. Excited by the progress he’s made in his own life since the program, he decided to start writing for AoC to help other guys do the same. By writing about interpersonal dynamics, he’s finally able to put that psychology degree to good use. View all posts by Brian M →
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.
Sorry, I forgot to mention, she stared half at me and downwards, and was biting her finger nails as I was closing in on walking past her drive way as she stood there and I was delivering – thankfully not to her address today. it would have been uncomfortable for me otherwise.
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! 
Wrist display is definitely one of the big ones, over the years I’ve also learned a few other gestures that seem to emerge but go unnoticed by most of us. The legs being the limbs furthest away from the head, it’s the part of our body we have least conscious control of and consequently the most revealing.
You can also gauge her heartbeat by observing her breathing patterns. This is just as difficult, if not more so, than feeling for a pulse, but doesn’t require prolonged touch. When you’re sitting next to each other during a movie, lightly brush up against her. If she’s breathing very quickly, it’s probable that she’s interested. If she’s holding her breath, she might be trying to hide the fact that she’s breathing hard.
Another thing that you’ll notice when a woman is attracted to you is that she’ll usually sit in a way that both her feet are pointed towards you. Scientists that study human behavior and non-verbal communication believe that even this is a subconscious reaction that occurs when we find another person attractive. However, if a woman that you’re flirting with sits so that both her feet are pointed away from you, you might need to recalibrate your advances.
A woman who is sexually aroused might display one, or a great variety of cues, but they might be directed toward a room in a “fish-and-lure” or broadcast display, and not at anyone specifically. Usually, these cues are propelled by her ovulation cycle, and serve to indicate a woman’s general demeanor, her mood, and thus her receptivity to courting. Nonverbal cues are frequently emitted purely on an emotional level.
The main element of flirting body language is emphasizing sexual differences; highlighting these differences is what makes a person sexy to other people. According to Dr. Albert Scheflen, when a person meets someone they are interested in, certain physiological changes take place. The muscle tone increases, body sagging disappears, the body assumes erect posture, and the person appears younger and more attractive. A man will stand taller, expand his chest and look more powerful and dominant, while the woman will tilt her head, and touch her hair while exposing her wrists. Body language reveals how available, attractive, enthusiastic or even how desperate we are. Some signals of flirting body language are unconscious and completely natural, while other signals are studied and intentional; regardless, the core principle of flirting body language is emphasizing sexual differences in order to attract the opposite sex. Highlighting these differences is what makes a person look and feel “sexy”. (You may also want to see this: Infographic: Body Language of Men)
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.
Kostopoulos starts by leading us through a series of warm-up exercises. At first, the scene is yoga-esque. We step out of our shoes and stand tall, close our eyes, and take deep, slow breaths. But before long, the tempo changes, and Kostopoulos has us jumping up and down, shaking our arms, swinging our hips, blowing raspberries, and making kooky faces, alternately sticking our tongues out and then scrunching up our noses. All the while, we’re huffing out husky ha-ha-ha sounds from deep in our bellies. Kostopoulos encourages us to experiment with a deep voice. “You don’t want Mary Tyler Moore,” she squeaks, then drops her tone an octave: “You want Diane Sawyer.”
Hair flipping, swishing, combing and general preening, plus a smile, are the main flirting feminine body language cues women use to get men’s attention. Other very effective feminine body language tactics are: walking with an exaggerated roll of hips, relaxed swinging arms, chest out, and head held high with a soft smile.
