Reading body language is not that difficult. Our body language can often give clues as to what we are really thinking and both guys and girls, consciously and subconsciously, send messages to members of the opposite gender when they are flirting. Some of these signs are common to both genders, like keeping eye contact, but some are unique to just one of the genders. Here are ten of the signs to watch out for, if you want to spot when someone is flirting with you:
1. His chest
Men like to face up to whatever is of interest to them, so watch for which way his chest is pointing, if you want to know if he’s interested in you. If he is, then you will notice that his chest always seems to be pointing toward to you, even if he’s not even talking to you at that particular point in time.
2. Her lips
For the girls, the lips are often the easiest sign to spot. When a girl gets aroused or excited, then her lips will become dry, so watch for the biting or licking of the lips. Licking of the lips is also a way of drawing attention to them and it’s a definite sign that she is flirting.
3. His hands
When a man is interested in a girl, he will start to try and make himself look more powerful and attractive. One of the ways he will do this is by placing his hands on his hips and standing tall. Not only he is trying to look tall and powerful, he’s also drawing attention to his hip region!
4. Her hair
When a girl runs her hands through her hair or is idly playing with it, then she is sending two messages. If she’s looking at a guy while she does it, then she is interested but, if she is looking around the room, then she’s getting bored!
5. His hair
A guy won’t usually play with his hair but he can still give the game away with it. He will want to check that his hair looks good, if he’s interested in a girl, so he will be grooming his hair with his hands.
6. Her eyelids
A girl batting her eyelids isn’t just a cliché. If a woman is interested then her eyelids will blink faster than usual and it is a definite sign that she is flirting.
7. His or her touch
Both genders will do anything to find an excuse to touch each other when they are flirting. It will be subtle though, like a touch on the other person’s arm, when talking.
8. His stance
This is another classic way that a man will show his interest in a girl. As with the hands on the hips, he will be trying to look big and strong, so he will probably be standing with legs wide apart. Basically, he’s showing off and flirting!
9. Her face
Women can’t help expressing their emotions on their face. A woman who is interested in a man will become more animated in her conversation and in her facial expressions. She will use her eyebrows, eyes and lips, as well as her voice, to communicate her interest.
10. His and her eyes
And finally, for both genders, the eyes will be saying a lot. If someone looks into another person’s eyes, then they are being open and honest and they want that person to trust them. You will also notice people that are flirting grabbing furtive glances toward the other person. In other words, they can’t keep their eyes off!
