Do you often tend to mistake women’s friendly behavior for true signs of flirting? The flirting body language a woman shows when she’s interested in you is not always easy to read, unless you know what to look for.
So, how do women flirt?
Well, they do it using ambiguous signals to test your intentions. Why?
Because if she finds out that you are not interested, then she can always save face pretending not being flirtatious at all!
Just think about it. A fleeting look, tossing of the hair, tilting the head, are all common signs of flirting meant to communicate untold words and check your level of interest in the most dignified way.
Brilliant, isn’t it?
Before listing the specific types of flirt signals, let’s step back for a moment and take a look at the art of communication in flirting. Experts say 93% of communication is nonverbal. People send nonverbal messages through unconscious body language and flirting signs to attract possible mates, or even to communicate a lack of interest.
But you should know that flirting body language isn’t all about attracting sexual partners and sexual innuendo; babies flirt with their parents to ensure survival and get what they want, sales people flirt with their prospects, you probably flirted to get a better table, and so on.
Flirting is an useful social lubricant, reducing the friction of daily dealings. It’s a subtle way to make others feel interesting and open to favors or further interaction. So being able to read body language is vital in communicating with others and picking up tons of unspoken messages.
In fact, some of it is unintentional.
Here’s what Dr. Jeffry Simpson, director of the social psychology program at the University of Minnesota, has recently said: "Flirting is part of the universal language of how we communicate, especially nonverbally. With a lot of the nonverbal stuff, people may not be fully aware that they’re actually doing it. People may emit flirtatious cues and not be fully aware of how powerful they are."
When it comes to romantic interest, you can tell a lot about a woman by observing her unconscious body language in flirting, which is usually unconsciously aimed at testing your value as a possible mate, or at causing renewed attention from an existent one.
However, once the communication is verbal, the signs of flirting become intentional. For example, a common form of verbal flirting is the double entendre, i.e., a word or expression capable of two interpretations, one usually risqué. "Do you come here often?" is a question a woman will ask in a bar, if she’s seriously interested.
But women’s flirting signs aren’t always that obvious and to know whether or not she’s interested in you romantically or sexually, you must be able to recognize her signs of flirting. The way she stands, sits, leans or moves says a lot about her intentions.
Isn’t it amazing?
Our capacity to flirt and understand the signs of flirting is actually nothing more than a set of unconscious behaviors embedded deep in our psyches. If generations of ancestors hadn't done it well enough, we wouldn't be around to talk about it now.
