5 Ways to Tell if She’s Interested in You

Does dating sometimes feel like you’re beating your head against the wall? Do you spend way too much time pursuing women to no avail? Maybe it’s time to take a step  back and pay attention to what the object of your affection is telling you – maybe not with words, but with body language and cues.

The key to knowing whether or not a woman is interested is simpler than you think. Often, women are more subtle when they are flirting with men, and sometimes a guy could miss the cues to pursue her. Instead of trying to figure out what she wants, it’s time to pay a little more attention and see if she’s signaling her interest.

Following are some ways to tell if she’s really interested in you:

She texts and calls without waiting for you. If a woman is interested, she won’t let too much time go by without contacting you. The old three-day rule no longer applies, nor does the adage that the guy must make the first move. If a woman calls or texts you just to say hi, you can bet she’s interested.

She shows genuine interest in you. Does she look around the room while you’re talking, trying to get a friend’s attention? Or does she pay attention to what you say and engage you in conversation? If a woman doesn’t want to talk to you, she’ll find a way to excuse herself. She will say she has a work commitment or that she’s meeting a friend – she will have a reason for leaving. If she’s wrapped up in what you have to say, she’s interested.

She makes a lot of eye contact. When women are uncomfortable or uninterested, their eyes wander. But if you notice her eyes locking on yours, if she’s meeting your gaze without turning away, then she’s open to getting to know you.

She makes references to seeing you again. Women can be direct or shy when it comes to letting their feelings be known. If she’s direct, she’ll ask you when you two will be going out again. If she’s shy or uncertain how you feel, she might drop a few hints about what she likes to do, or mention where she’ll be in the next few evenings so that you’ll know and plan to be there, too. Pay attention, and then if you’re interested – ask her out!

Her body language is playful and flirtatious. Women generally keep their hands to themselves if they aren’t interested in a man who’s flirting with them. If she touches your arm, shoulder, or hand, or leans forward towards you a lot, then that’s a cue that she’s open to flirting and interested in you.

How To Make Time For Online Dating When You Have None

With endless addictive game apps for our mobile phones and a never-ending supply cute animal videos on YouTube, it's a wonder we ever have time to get anything done. The number of hours in a day hasn't changed, but somehow the pace of modern life makes it feel like they're shrinking all the time. We barely have time to eat a real breakfast in the morning (hello Starbucks!), so how could we possibly have time for online dating?

The "I'm too busy to date" excuse just doesn't cut it. If you want to find a relationship, you have to make it a priority. Online dating requires a significant time investment, but there are strategies you can use to make that time as effective as possible. To guarantee you’re spending your limited time and energy in ways that actually lead to quality, in-person dates, try these tricks:

  • Don’t start what you’re not ready to finish. Ask yourself if you're really prepared to make the commitment that online dating requires. If you aren't willing to set aside time to find and communicate with potential dates, being on an online dating site is not a good use of your time in the first place.
  • Know what you're looking for. Dating online requires you to make a lot of decisions. If you go into it with a clear sense of what you want and don't want, you can more quickly decide who is right for you and who is worth reaching out to.
  • Segregate your online dating e-mails. Set up a separate e-mail account just for online dating or filter all your online dating e-mails to a dedicated folder. This keeps all of your messages in one place and prevents you from getting distracted by them throughout the day. It's a good idea to make sure all mobile alerts are disabled too.
  • Ignore the unimportant information. Lots of the dating sites tell you things like who viewed your profile or how many visits you've had during a certain period of time. It's easy to get stuck on the stats, but they don't tell you anything useful. It's a waste of time (and possibly a source of unnecessary heartache) to check them.
  • Get off-line as soon as you feel comfortable. It's easy to spend hours and hours sending messages back and forth, but you could communicate online for months and still find that you don't click when you meet in person. Don't ever meet with someone before you feel safe doing so, but don't waste time bonding deeply before meeting face-to-face either.
  • Get out while the gettin’s good. Every date won’t be a home run. If you're not feeling it, get out fast. If you know someone isn't a good fit, be decisive – but kind – and move on.

Women aren’t the only mysterious creatures around – guys can be every bit as baffling when it comes to dating. One minute you think he’s interested, and the next you wonder if you imagined your mutual attraction as he suddenly disappears.

While some questions might go unanswered, if he’s truly interested in you – he sticks around. With my significant other, I had no doubts about his interest (as I had with previous men who were incredible flaky). That’s because he knew what he wanted - and he let me know.

Instead of trying to convince yourself he likes you, see if he’s displaying the following signs of his interest. Then you’ll really know:

He pursues you. We might be living in a society where women are increasingly the pursuers and taking charge, but if a man is interested, he wants to pursue a woman. He will call you, text you, remind you that he’s thinking about you by keeping consistent contact with you. This is because he’s focused on the goal – getting together with you. If he’s dropping in and out, he’s just not that interested.

He keeps his word. Does he often flake at the last minute? Chances are you aren’t one of his priorities. If he’s really interested, he will make time for you and when he makes plans he will follow through. If an emergency comes up, he will call you to reschedule. He doesn’t mess around or leave you hanging.

He pays attention to you. Does your guy look around the room when you’re out on dates, seeing who else might be there? If he’s truly interested, his eyes will be focused on you. He wants you to know that he’s interested – that he doesn’t want other guys taking his place. He’s not interested in what he’s missing, either. He listens to what you have to say and engages you in conversation.

He wants you to meet his friends and family. This might not be true in the beginning of the relationship, but as it progresses, he will want to bring you into his world. If he makes excuses about introducing you to friends and family after you’ve been dating a couple of months, it might be that he has someone else in his life or that he’s not interested in anything serious.

He’s affectionate. While some women think men are all about sex, the men who are interested in you are focused on other things, too – like showing you affection. If he grabs your hand in public or kisses you without an ulterior motive, then he’s showing you his affection. Enjoy it!

The Complex Relationship Between Online Dating And Race

People who participate in online dating may be more open to interracial relationships than those who stick solely to traditional dating, says a study published in the Journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Researchers from the University of California, San Diego analyzed the first interactions of 126,134 American OkCupid users to study the complex relationship tween online dating and race. They found, unsurprisingly, that many users tended to send messages to other users of their own race – but they also found that they were much more likely to respond to messages from users of a different racial background. The study also found that once an individual responded to a member of another race, they were even more likely to initiate conversation with other users of different ethnicities in the future.

"It's not that people's levels of prejudice are changing; people are avoiding others from a different racial background because they think those other people won't be interested," study author Kevin Lewis, a sociologist for UC San Diego, told USA Today. "Receiving an interracial contact and replying to it makes you send over twice as many new interracial messages in the short-term future than you would have otherwise."

Online daters may be chipping away at racial barriers, but that doesn't mean they've fallen completely. "Race as a dividing factor is much more important than basically any other attribute," Lewis explained. The study found that white online daters, both male and female, overwhelmingly made contact with other white users (although that's also due to the fact that there are more white people on OkCupid to choose from). Caucasian users were also the most likely to seek out people of another race. Those who identified as black, Hispanic, Indian or Asian were much more likely to stay within their own racial lane while online dating.

The only group that consistently bucked the trend was Asian women. Asian women were more likely to contact white men and other Asian men. They were also more likely to respond to white men (though it's important to note that all races were most likely to respond to white men).

Lewis calls online daters’ reluctance to reach out to users of different ethnic backgrounds "pre-emptive discrimination." Based on the way race has shaped their lives so far, they expect to experience rejection – or at least to have little in common with someone who doesn't share their heritage. But, says Lewis, the study suggests that if someone is bold enough to make the first move and overcome their fear of rejection, they are rewarded with the realization that the pool of potential partners is wider and richer than they had ever imagined.

5 Profile Tips for Guys

There’s an art to attracting a woman’s attention – especially when it’s through your online dating profile. The biggest mistake I see guys make is assuming that women will automatically respond to their emails or overtures – when the truth is, most women are bombarded with messages.

You have to cut through the clutter to make a good impression. It’s up to you to make your profile stand out so that she will want to respond. Maybe it doesn’t seem fair that guys have to work a bit harder in that respect, but that’s the reality. And isn’t it worth it to meet a great woman?

Following are some tips to give your profile a competitive edge:

Be yourself – not your resume. As cliché as this sounds, there really is meaning behind it. No woman wants to hear all of your work accomplishments or accolades, she wants to know if she can connect with you. Instead of crafting a resume, try expressing what you’re passionate about, what you want to learn, or your sense of humor.

Watch the grammar! Proofing is the most important thing you can do for your profile, at least according to the latest Match.com study. The vast majority of women want to know that you can put a sentence together (not text-speak). Considering how many people leave incomplete profiles with poor grammar, this will give you an advantage.

Stay away from selfies. Have you been working out? Do you want to show off your six-pack? Please don’t. Even if you look great, your matches will be turned off because you’re showing yourself to every single woman on the site. Instead of taking that shirtless selfie, try taking a picture playing a guitar instead. Studies have shown that if you include shots of yourself doing something active – especially playing a guitar or musical instrument – you’ll get more responses.

Be sincere, not generic. It might seem easier to write things you think women will want to hear, but it will work against you. “I like long walks on the beach” will cause her to scroll right past you. Instead of going for cliché try injecting your personality into the mix. What do you really like? Where would you take her on your ideal date? What’s your favorite memory from childhood? These details into who you are will capture her attention.

Complete the profile. So many men leave profiles blank or hide photos, which will cause a woman to think you’re hiding something (maybe a girlfriend). Don’t write an essay or refuse to post photos, but DO use complete sentences and try not to leave anything blank. If it looks like you spent about five minutes filling out your profile, she’ll notice. A little more effort goes a long way.

 

Zoosk Unveils New Priority Inbox Feature

Just in time for spring, Zoosk has announced the beta release of its new Priority Inbox feature to take Behavioral Matchmaking to the next level. The new technology will prioritize messages from members with whom you are more likely to discover mutual attraction. This update makes Zoosk the first online dating platform to offer a feature that ranks messages in members' inboxes based on the potential for compatibility.

Traditional online dating services are based on static profiles, compiled via one-time surveys and questionnaires. Zoosk, on the other hand, is powered by its dynamic and personalized Behavioral Matchmaking technology, which tracks and analyzes a member's activity on the site in order to recommend better matches. By applying this technology to inboxes, Zoosk is making its experience more effective than ever.

“At Zoosk, we are continuously working to provide the best possible experience for members to find relationship satisfaction online,” said Shayan Zadeh, Co-Founder and CEO of Zoosk. “Lots of dating websites highlight messages from people you’ve already talked to, but our technology allows us to take it a step further by prioritizing messages from new people we think you’ll want to have a conversation with.”

The new Priority Inbox feature will identify messages from members with a greater likelihood of compatibility, which it calls Priority Messages, using stars and highlights. Those messages will be driven to the top of users' inboxes so they can't be missed.

“When developing the Priority Inbox feature, we took into account the fact that sometimes people who date online, especially women, become inundated with messages,” said Alex Mehr, Co-Founder and President of Zoosk. “Priority Inbox is a very unique feature for our members who will be spared the task of having to dig through a mountain of messages to find their desired match; not only leading them to form stronger connections, but to form meaningful connections faster than ever before.”

The patent-pending Priority Inbox feature is currently only available to some Zoosk members, but the site expects to roll it out to the rest of its 25+ million members over the course of the next month. With the #1 grossing mobile dating app and a top 25 grossing app on the iPhone in the United States, Zoosk is already a market leader in the dating industry. The service can now be found in over 80 countries in 25 languages. Priority Inbox is just the latest in a long series of innovations taking matchmaking to the next level and keeping Zoosk on top of the dating game.
