Recognizing the signs of flirting is very important when you're on the dating scene, or looking to make a change in your life.
Body language and non-verbal signals are very effective. They convey an entire story without one word being spoken.
The signs of flirting are universal and very easy to pick up on if you know what you're looking for. According to Greatdateguide.com, when you recognize the signs of flirting, you know the right things to do and not do as well.
When a woman is flirting, the most obvious sign to look for is the eye glance. She will zero in on you from across the room, and when she sees you looking at her, she will quickly glance away. Before long, you will both make prolonged eye contact until one of you makes the first move.
Another clear sign to watch for are her hand movements. If a woman is flirting she will touch you, herself, or on object nervously. In the photo above, La La reaches out to touch Kanye West's face. She also touches her face, her chest or her hair in the same series of photos.
A flirting women will laugh easily at everything you say. Unlike men, who casually glance around a room while talking, a woman will gaze at you for the entire time she's talking to you. You're the only man in the room as far as she's concerned.
According to Greatdateguide.com, "A girl who's flirting with you will laugh more loudly and smile more pointedly. Her eyes [will] stay focused on you most of the time."
A flirting girl will also be focused on you more than herself. Look for her to primp subtly - patting her hair, for instance. She is also likely to unconsciously fondle things, like the rim of her glass, or to lick her lips frequently.
Someone who is uninterested in you will glance around the room constantly during a conversation.
A man who is flirting will show subtle signs of aggression, such as standing too closely, touching your hands or your hair, staring into your eyes or your mouth, and laughing loudly. That last sign -- laughing loudly -- is a signal to other men in the vicinity (similar to a lion's roar) to stay back because you belong to him.
Unlike words, body language is a collection of signals from the brain that cannot be denied.
