1. For more than 40 years, researchers have been cataloging the non-verbal behaviors women use to let men know they're interested (and vice versa). One important category of flirting includes the oldest trick in the book: hair tossing.
2. Another kinetic gesture that women often unconsciously engage in in order to show their interest is licking their lips. This behavior serves to draw your attention to her lips and indicate that a kiss could be in the cards.
3. When you were a kid, your number one way of showing a girl that you were smitten with her was likely by stuffing some sand in her mouth. Both men and women use teasing as a way to let another person know they're crushing on them.
4. Merely being physically close to another person appears to increase how much we like them. When a woman deliberately moves closer towards you, she may therefore be luring you into liking her more。
5. Try taking things to the next level by sharing something about yourself with her. A reciprocal response where she offers up a similar level of information about herself is a hint that she has a favorable view of you, since both women and men tend to disclose personal details to people they like.
6. When it comes to gauging her interest in you, the wittiness of your remarks appears to be much less important than how she responds. A monosyllabic answer, particularly when delivered in a clipped tone, is her way of shutting you down. A smiling, friendly response, however, is a green light to follow up with further conversation.
7. Both men and women send important signals to others simply by changing the orientation and postures of their bodies. A woman who has her body turned away from yours, particularly if it's at a 90-degree angle, is non-verbally blocking your attempts at getting to know her. Crossing her armsyare the other stance that indicate that a conversation will be a non-starter. Poses that suggest she's receptive to further communication with you are much more open. For example, she'll turn her body to face yours, her arms will be uncrossed and she'll lean in toward you.
8. It turns out that when a woman digs you, she'll copy your moves. For example, she'll touch her face, reach for her glass a few seconds after you do.
9. Another flirty gesture that's been amply described and investigated by scientists interested in non-verbal behavior is what is referred to as head canting. In women, when this tilt is accompanied by exposing the neck and a small smile, it sometimes means that you've caught her attention. Paired with eye play, this combination can be devastatingly attractive to men.
10. Eye contact is a powerful mode of communication among humans, and repeated or prolonged eye contact usually serves two main purposes: to convey interest or hostility. If you notice that she looks at you once but doesn't look back, she's not interested. Research has determined that women will continue to send it to you when you've piqued their curiosity.
