There’s a huge difference between male and female body language signs of attraction.
Evolutionary scientists believe both sexes evolved differently when it comes to picking up on the signs of sexual interest. This is why there is such a disparity between male and female body language signs of attraction.
Men are programmed to seek out many partners. This is so their genes will survive after they’ve gone. Men have the advantage in that they don’t have to stay after the birth and raise the child.
Therefore, it makes sense for men to be open and frank when they are pursuing a woman they’re attracted to. Guys will ‘hit’ on a woman they fancy and go all out to impress her.
Women, on the other hand, cannot afford to have children with every guy she meets. She has to be selective. She must make sure she picks the best man to father her children.
As such, women are subtle and unassuming when it comes to flirting. Women will use discreet signs that let’s be honest, men tend to miss.
Therefore, if you want to know if she likes you, it’s important to learn female body language signs of attraction.
Here are 8 signs of Female Body Language Signs of Attraction
The first sign to notice is a woman’s smile. However, if you look over and she doesn’t immediately smile back, don’t give up, she might not have registered you yet. Smile again and wait to see her reaction. If she does smile back take this as a sign she’s interested.
Now then, teeth are a dead giveaway. Especially the upper teeth, and this is why. If you really like someone, when you smile you always show your upper teeth.
You simply can’t help it. If you don’t believe me, next time you’re greeting a really good friend or laughing at a funny joke with a close mate, pay attention to your teeth!
Another sign to look out for is blushing. This is a reaction that no-one can stop from happening. In fact, I remember working in a bar once and a regular customer would come in that I fancied like mad.
I would have to turn away to hide my blushing until I could feel my face had cooled off. So why do we blush when we are attracted to someone? I was embarrassed because I thought he would guess I liked him.
2. Eye Contact
Now watch for prolonged eye contact. Human beings have an unconscious desire to spend more time looking at the things we find attractive. This subconscious desire draws our attention to the object we’re attracted to, then our conscious mind quickly stops us staring.
So, if a woman looks at you, then quickly looks away, only to return the look, this is a sign of attraction. Known as the ‘double glance’, it’s a pretty good indicator of the female body language signs of attraction.
There’s a good reason why women wear red lipstick. It’s to replicate the look of a certain female body part when it’s aroused. Nonetheless, any touching of the lips or licking to make them moist is a clear indication that she is thinking of you in a sexual way.
Watch out also for biting the lower lip. This is a coy flirting technique some women use when they want the man to take charge of the situation.
Pushing the lips out or exaggerating them in any form is another one of our female body language signs of attraction. Why do you think we get so many selfies where women stick their lips out in those silly duck poses?
This is a kind of preening behavior in which a woman is subconsciously ‘fixing herself up’ for the man she likes. She’s highlighting her assets, her lustrous locks, how they shape and frame her face. This is her subtle way of screaming at you – “Look at me!”
Think about it, a woman will not touch her hair in this way to a man she has a business relationship with. So any signs of hair-touching, including flicking the hair back from the face, and even covering the face with hair is a sign she likes you.
Does she spend a lot of time caressing a glass? Or does she twiddle a cocktail stick seductively? Or has she got a habit of playing with her jewelry when you are no a date together? These are all subconscious signs that she’d like to touch you instead.
And watch if she dangles or drops a shoe from her foot. This is a very sexy act and suggests a confident woman who knows exactly what she wants. If a woman pushes her glass or handbag closer to you this is another sign she would like to be closer.
Pay attention when a woman touches her clothes. I don’t necessarily mean if she takes her coat off in a restaurant. For instance, examples such as fiddling with a collar on her blouse, or pulling up the sleeves of a cardigan.
It’s likely that she’s trying to get your focus on the part of her body she’s touching.
So, if she is touching a button midway down her dress she is drawing your attention to her cleavage. Whereas if she fiddles a lot with an earring she wants you to look at her neck. The neck is a very vulnerable part of the body and she is offering it to you.
There are numerous studies that emphasize the importance of touch. The impact of a touch cannot be underestimated. It creates a bond and increases attraction. Therefore, if a woman touches you, even if it is ever-so-briefly, pay attention.
Typical flirting places to touch are on the upper arms or the small of the back. You should also watch out if she keeps on ‘accidently’ touching you.
For instance, if she keeps brushing up against you. Or if she play-fights with you. Another one of our female body language signs of attraction is if she chooses to be close to you.
Talking of feeling close to you, this is probably one of the biggest tests of female body language signs of attraction. How comfortable a woman feels when she is close to you? It is a fact, we only allow certain people into our personal space.
These people have to have exceptional qualities. We have to feel safe with them, they have to smell good to us, and we don’t mind if they touch us. That’s an awful lot to be going on with. Obviously, not everyone is going to get in or pass all these rules.
So, if you find you’re allowed to be in a woman’s personal space, take it from me, it is a very good sign.
