They say that men have only one thing on their minds – and in your case it’s absolutely true.
Whether you can’t stop thinking about that wonderful woman at work or your eyes keep being drawn to the gorgeous girl across the room, your crush has become all-consuming. She is all that you can think about. And now you want to know: are you all that she can think about, too?
Luckily, girls are easier to read than many men believe.
Much like us guys, if a chick is into someone she will want him to know about it. After all, if he never notices her interest, she’ll never get that delicious first kiss.
The trouble is that, just like us, girls are scared of making fools of themselves. She would love to tell you she likes you but she’s scared of misreading your signals and having you laugh in her face. As a result, she is coy about her clues; the signs are all there, but you do have to learn to look out for them.
So how can you tell if she likes you?
Let’s start with the basics. These are the signals that every girl gives out, regardless of whether you work together or you’ve caught her eye across a crowded club.
Is she looking at you and smiling? There’s no better sign. Confident girls may maintain eye contact, but most will glance quickly away the moment you notice them watching you. Check to see if she keeps looking back your way – if she can’t keep her eyes off you, you know that she’s interested.
Watch for flirtatious body language. Many girls fiddle with their hair when they’re attracted to a man. Some will start stroking their own arm, neck or face distractedly, while shy girls will blush whenever you look their way.
Now, let’s make conversation with her. When an assertive chick wants your attention she will become loud and start laughing at even the weakest of your jokes; quieter girls may stammer or stutter when trying to speak to you.
With the words starting to flow, she will look for excuses to touch your hand or your arm. Making physical contact with you is a sure sign of her interest.
If your crush is on a girl you know or work with, you may believe this complicates matters. Nobody wants to be rejected by someone they have to see or speak to on a daily basis. In fact, fancying someone you’re friendly with puts you in a great position; you will already have proven to her that you’re a good guy, and your close contact gives you plenty of opportunities to figure out if she’s interested in you.
Does she ever text or email you just to say hello? If you initiate contact, are her responses fast and chatty? Girls love to flirt via messaging, so always give a prompt and positive reply.
When chicks are into you, they will do almost anything to get your attention. If she’s making jokes at your expense, she really wants you to notice her. Alternatively, if a normally shy or well mannered girl starts making loud or cocky sexual references she is trying to turn you on.
Arrange a group gathering. Invite your mutual friends or workmates to a bar and try to gauge how eager she is to join you. A girl who cancels her plans to be around you is keen to know you better, while one who seems genuinely regretful about missing out would love to get you alone.
