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.
