How To Spot These Obvious Flirting Body Language Of A Female

Most people usually associate flirting using body language with women, this, however, is not something reserved only for women as even men use body language to flirt. Body language is an art and women can be very difficult to decipher which is why it’s important for you to know what to look for.

The following are examples of conscious and subconscious flirting body language signs that are common with ladies:

1. Smiling at you

When a lady is interested in you she will smile at you. You will have to check carefully since the smile can just be a genuinely friendly smile. A smile does not automatically mean that a woman is interested in you. One of the things to look out for is how she is smiling. If you find her smiling brightly, then she is flirting with you as it means that she is relaxed. If you find yourself unable to interpret her smile, do not first make your move as you can easily find yourself in an embarrassing situation, instead, look out for more signals.

2. Making eye contact

Eyes are the gateway to the soul! This is true as a woman who is flirting with you will most likely keep on making some eye contact with you lasting more than 3 seconds. This helps to develop a silent connection between the two of you. This is a very easy sign to spot as a woman who wants nothing to do with you will not even look at your direction.

3. Touching her face

Women will always touch their faces when flirting with you; the difference is how they do it. If you find her touching her face while smiling at you, then, you should know that she is interested in you. If she is not interested in you, she can still touch her face but the attitude will be different as she looks bored and will seem to care less about what you are saying.

4. Playing with her hair

When a woman plays with her hair either when looking at you or when talking to you, this should be a clear sign that she is flirting. The reason why she might do this is to try to get your attention and to look presentable. When she is flirting with you she might simply adjust her hair or might even do the hair flip where she will raise her hand up and gently push it through her hair. If a woman, however, plays with her hair looking disinterested, frustrated, and distracted, then, that is a sign that she is not interested.

5. Laughing or giggling

A woman listening carefully to whatever you have to say and giggling or laughing as a response to your conversation is a very clear sign that she is flirting with you. This is one of the signs that are hard to mistake as you can clearly tell that she is not laughing at you as she appears to be relaxed and genuinely interested in you.

This is another common subconscious flirting sign you should watch for. If a guy mirrors some of your actions when having a conversation this can be a sign of flirting. Some of the things that he might find himself copying even without knowing are such as your blinking rate and laughing every time you are laughing.

Touch is one of the most obvious signs of flirting which is why this is a classic! When a man touches you accidentally, it can be a sign that he is looking for a chance to speak with you and that he is desperately trying to get your attention.
