When it comes to body language and flirting, in most cases, men are those who are more or less described as clueless. Truth to be told, this stereotype isn’t just based on a sole opinion, sadly it’s closer to the truth than you may think. Some men just don’t really get when a potential partner tries to seduce him unless the signs are pretty clear and straightforward. Once again, this is not a general rule, it’s just that, almost all women who tried to be seductive with guys at one point had to deal with a really thick male skull because the owner of that thick skull had no idea that he’s being hit on…
Okay, let’s be honest here, this exact same claim can be true the other way around. Believe it or not, there are some women out there who have a hard time reading flirting signs men give. Yes, we said it. Ladies, admit it, not all of you are that good when it comes to reading male minds and some of you fail to notice when that strong jawline across the bar is constantly dropping because of you.
So, don’t sabotage your potential relationships! If you have troubles with the signs men give when flirting, We have compiled you a list of definitive subtle and less subtle signs which can help you identify a potential partner.
Third times the charm
If he gives you three quick looks repeatedly you two are off to a good start.
Okay, the first time, it’s that ‘stranger look’ meaning he’s simply eyeing you because you’re another human being who has managed to cross his vision’s scope.
The second look is simply because he realized you’re a female.
Well, if he gives the third look, that in most cases he fancies you.
It’s this simple.
Feet pointing your way
In most cases, when we regard someone attractive, we subconsciously point our hands, toes, legs, feet, and arms at them.
Just check it out next time when you see a group of guys chatting with a lady. Even the group looks uninterested and pretends not to acknowledge her presence, in most cases, their feet will be all pointing right at her.
His hands are often on or around his face
Almost exclusively at times when he’s eyeing you and when you two chat. If this is the case, chances are, he’s into you.
Just watch, if he’s excited to talk to you, he’ll play around with his cheek with his fingers. He’ll also be touching his ears pretty often, rubbing his chin or stroking his beard if he has one.
He’s into you, meaning he’s a bit nervous and excited which and he really wants to be sure he looks nice for you.
Eyes moving in the lines of a triangle
When we take a look at people who we aren’t that close to or just met, our eyes tend to go in a zig-zag motion, meaning we make eye contact but our glance also tends to wander down to the mouth and the nose.
Once the flirting begins, all this intensifies. Intensifies to a point where the triangle gets bigger and starts to include things like the cleavage, breasts and eventually, the crotch.
You catch him staring at your mouth
Another physical flirting sign is when he’s constantly eyeing your lips while you’re talking. If you’re into him too, this can be a big turn on and a really sexy signal because you too automatically start fantasizing about you two kissing.
At this point, chances are, both of you are fantasizing about exactly that.
He blinks. A lot.
This isn’t rocket science – if you like what you see, your pupils get dilated and thus, the rate that you blink at increases. Here’s an extra tip: If you’re looking to make it a surefire thing that you two get together, increase your potential partner’s blink rate by increasing your first. If he’s into you, he’ll unconsciously try to sync that rate. By doing this, both of you will feel the attraction growing between you.
Is he literally blocking your path?
This is also pretty simple: he’s using his body to conjure a personal space and to “seclude” himself and the person he fancies – in this case, you.
This is actually called blocking and it comes in many forms. For instance, when he’s putting him behind you up against the wall – a scholarly example of blocking.
A significantly sweeter method of blocking is when he leans his head really close to your head trying to create a little private space in a room full of people.
Squeezing his drink? You’re lucky!
When guys are interested in you, they start playing around with particular objects which happen to be in their hands.
The explanation is pretty simple here: his body language is basically screaming what’s going on in the subconscious of his mind. You know, he’s squeezing the bottle but he’d rather squeeze something else.
WHEN HE’S TALKING THE TALK
He’ll try to make you laugh
When he’s into you he’ll grab any situation he gets to make you laugh, to make fun of your current, or even of you… Nah, he’s not going crazy, he’s just trying to flirt with the girl he likes and will try to hold onto every opportunity to get and keep your attention and in most cases, men try to do that using their sense of humor.
In most cases, he will tease you gently – the older they are the less mean they tend to be with girls. In all honesty, their jokes aimed at you are not meant to disrespect you but only to make you laugh.
He will favor your company in a group setting
When he’s attempting to get closer to you, you’ll notice that when you two are in a bigger group, he will speak with you a lot more than with others. He will be focusing on you and give more attention to you particularly when more guys are around. There’s a reason for that and it’s not that he’s trying to be a nice guy.
He gets excited and a bit around you
If he’s really into you, chances are, he’ll get fidgety when he’s flirting with you especially if he’s generally shy. You can tell when his legs are constantly jiggling while he’s talking to you or he’s playing with something when you approach him. His nervousness means he cares and that he also has feelings.
No, we’re not talking about your honeymoon and which school should your kids attend. If he’s given any hints to take you out somewhere in the near future, or if he joked about that particular honeymoon and kids… Well, these are all telltale signs of him flirting. He obviously wants you to let you know that he’s thinking about a potential relationship.
He just can’t help himself but strive to build sexual chemistry between you and him.
There will be questions
If he has serious intentions with you, chances are he will ask a couple of questions either indirectly or directly. One of these questions will probably be whether you’re taken or not. He’s doing this to check out his chances with you and to assess the situation. Oh yes, and he also wants to know what’s your opinion about him.
Showing off – his best self
When men flirt, they will do to impress women with their skills. He will try to prove that he is brain over brawn and will actually start bragging without even realizing it. You’ll know his every skill and don’t worry, he’ll exaggerate.
He will tell you about his skills behind the wheel, his bench press, martial arts prowess, and the list goes on…
All in all, all he wants to do is to prove to you that he’s one in a million.
This IS a competition
When he flirts, he will try to prove he’s better than the rest of the guys. In his mind, every other man is out there to get you and he will try everything to prove that he’s the one for you. He just can’t stand if other men get ahead and steal you from him.
There will be texting
When he suddenly starts sending texts with sexual innuendo to them, and he also replies instantly, he’s definitely interested. However, be a little careful since he could be sending the very same passionate and suggestive texts to 10 other girls. The best thing you can do is to play it cool and to remain relaxed and open-minded.
Sometimes, guys who are flirting will send stupid texts for no apparent reason just to find ways to talk to you. Other times, when he’s anxious, he will send repetitive stiff just to make sure that you’re interested too.
All in all, these all are just random excuses to hit up a convo with you.
Sexual innuendos and conversations
This is pretty self-explanatory. These mean that he thinks of you, you know, THAT way. However, be alert, and make sure whether he’s looking for a one night stand or something more serious. Don’t run into things head-first if you’re looking for something meaningful because you’ll only get your heart broken if not sooner then later.
Conversations are always crucial because if you pay attention you can actually tell a pretty big deal about his intentions. To create a flirty environment, he will bring up naughty topics and won’t be afraid to make a few sexual jokes.
This is the part when you have to pay attention because you will be able to tell if he’s interested in something more serious not just casual sex. All in all, it’s up to you and stand your ground and turn him off if things get uncomfortable or you just have a bad feeling about him.
Showering you with compliments
He compliments you all the time and notices all the small things? You should know that he definitely has a crush on you.
If he’s quick to notice any changes in your hairstyle or in the way you dress and compliments it almost immediately – he’s hung up on you.
Most of the time, the words he uses are carefully chosen to make sure you won’t forget him, so whenever you put those pair of shoes on he complimented, you’ll start thinking of him. That’s his way to your heart right there.
Looking for common interests and asking you out
It’s a pretty sure sign of flirting when he starts to ask questions about your interests and claims to have the same exact ones. When guys flirt they generally want to know about your interests to see what is it you two have in common. The more excited he is to find out that you two share some of the same interests, the more he’s into you.
When he’s seriously into you, he will seek every opportunity to ask you out even If he’s shy and needs a lot of courage. Also, don’t be surprised if he’ll insist on picking you up and dropping you off – these are clear signs that he wants something.
As you can see, telling If he’s flirting or not is no rocket science. There are clear physical and verbal signs suggesting that he’s into you and that he wants to be more than your friend.
Stay away from players. Some men play dirty and will try to use you. That’s just the nature of the game. Don’t give in all at once, make sure that his intentions are true and he’s interested in more than just a one night stand.
Who knows, maybe that shy guy who built up the courage to brag about his culinary skills will be “the one”? You never know!
