We get it, it can be tough to tell if a girl likes you having you around. One thing that lets you know for sure is if she flirts. While there are many tactics women deploy for the art of flirting, we're here to make it easier for you to catch the vibes she throws your way.
You'll see it isn't that hard to spot after you read this.
Eye Contact Is Steady
If she maintains eye contact with you when you two speak to each other, that's a great sign. That means she enjoys looking at you and isn't shy about it.
She Lets You Get Her A Drink
Most times, a lady won't let just anyone get her a drink. If you offer and she says okay, you're on her good side. That means to prepare for more direct forms of flirting once you both get tipsy.
She Gets A Drink For You
Okay, she let you get her a drink, great. If she decides it's time to get you an alcoholic beverage, she's feeling you. That, or she's acting extremely nice for no reason. That should be easy to figure out for yourself.
She Can't Stop Asking Questions
Usually, it's the guy's job to ask her the questions, but if the role reverses, she sees something in you. She wants the conversation to last longer, so she'll keep asking.
Is She Laughing At Your Dad Jokes?
Dad jokes are great, don't get us wrong, but they don't all warrant a chuckle or knee slap. If she continues to laugh at your jokes, even if they're bad, she's flirting.
She'll For Sure Touch You Somehow
If she reaches out to lightly shove you after a joke you tell, that's a double score. It shouldn't need to be any more evident that she's flirting at that point, but now you know.
You Catch Her Staring
Even if she isn't speaking to you, but you two are in the same vicinity, then you might catch her staring at you. All this means is that she's shy, so go ahead and show her some attention.
Blushing Is A Great Sign
If you make her blush, that means she has something to be embarrassed about being around you. If you didn't mean anything to her, she would have no reason to feel that way. Good job, dude.
She Acts Differently Around You
If you notice that she acts differently with you than she does with the other boys, you're onto something. It could also mean 100 different things, but hopefully, your intuition picks up on it.
Did She Ask You For A Favor?
You might not think this is a big deal, but it is in some ways. If she asked a boy she had no interest in to do something for her, that guy might think something of it, but no, she asked you.
Does She Want You On Her Socials?
Think about this: she's not putting just anybody on her stories for social media. That space is for friends, close ones, and the guy she's interested in seeing. Make sure you smile.
Covering Her Mouth While Laughing
If she covers her mouth while laughing, she's probably a bit self-conscious. That usually translates to her caring about her image and actions, so she doesn't want to sound or look too weird while around you.
You Get A Date Idea From Her
Once again, bringing up date ideas usually falls onto the shoulders of the guy. That's a serious role-reversal and one that you should recognize as flirting. Help her out a bit if you don't like the idea.
Pay Attention To The Body Language
If there is no reason whatsoever for her to contort her body towards yours, but she does it anyway, she's flirting. There's a science behind this fact, and it's something you need to know.
The Subject Matter Becomes "Hot"
Whether you're texting or talking in person, if she brings up naughty subject matter, that's a very clear sign. She wouldn't do that with just any guy, but she trusts you enough not to blow it.
You Run Into Her Often
Yeah, you work in the same building, but that doesn't mean you're bound to run into her every day. If she starts to take her breaks at the same time as you, that's a slick flirt.
She'll Grin While Walking Away
If somehow you catch her grinning after you two walk away from each other, she's feeling you. You probably didn't even say anything funny, that's just her way of flirting.
Is She Straightforward?
If she's straightforward, that means she's beyond playing games. This is one of the most explicit forms of flirting. Instead of saying, "We should hang out soon," it becomes, "let's grab a coffee tomorrow morning!"
She Wants To Know If You're Seeing Anybody
This one might seem like an instant turnoff, but it isn't. If she brings up her ex, she's baiting you to talk about a significant other to see if it's still going on or in the past.
Hair And Clothing Adjustments Mean A Lot
If you're having a regular conversation with her, but she starts to play with her hair or adjust her clothes, she's flirting. She's doing this to make sure she looks good during the conversation.
She's Playfully Competitive With You
She's always finding little ways to make things a little competitive between the two of you—challenging you to a game of darts, who can chug their drink faster—to create a little flirty tension.
She Drops A Lot Of Compliments
Women tend to be a bit wary of giving men too many compliments in case it gets misinterpreted as flirting, so if she'd showering you with little compliments, she's probably flirting.
She Teases You A Lot, Specifically
You could be in a room with a bunch of other people, but she finds little ways to tease you specifically compared to everyone else around you to show that she's paying more attention to you.
She Invites You To Things
Even if she doesn't know you all that well, she extends an invitation to you for a party or gathering with her friends. She might do so casually to not seem too eager, but she definitely wants you there.
She Goes Out Of Her Way To Create Inside Jokes
Of course, inside jokes need to start a little naturally, but if she goes out of her way to make a joke about something and repeatedly brings it up to try and emphasize your closeness, she's likely flirting.
You Notice Her Voice Get A Little Higher When She's Talking To You
Science has shown that when a woman is romantically or sexually interested in a man, she tends to subconsciously raise the pitch of her voice a little when she's speaking with him compared to others.
She Plays Coy
Playing coy where she's suddenly mischievous then shy with you is definitely a flirting technique. Other things she might do are feign innocence or say something like "make me" in a provocative tone.
She Comes Up With A Nickname For You
Nicknames are a quick way to foster a connection to someone, so she might flirt by coming up with a name that only she calls you and proceed to use it often.
She Does These Things In Combination
Remember that any one of these actions alone might not particularly flirty, but it's the combination of many of them that becomes very telling. I'm also going to say that women, like all people, are different so each is all a little different in how they flirt.
If You're Unsure, Just Ask
If you feel like she's flirting with you but you aren't really sure based on the signs she's giving you, just ask her directly—especially if you're also interested. It's better to clear any confusion early on.
