Men are classically bad at recognizing women's hints, and because women are generally more socially "in tune," they wonder why we cant see what seems obvious to them.

Well, it takes practice. If you're stumped when it comes to knowing whether or not women are attracted to you, here are a few "indicators of interest." Once you get good at recognizing them, youll feel much more confident when approaching women.

The "hair flick"

Many women unconsciously flick their hair when they're interested in men. Its basically a form of preening (like a bird cleaning its feathers), and women do it when they are trying to be more attractive.

Running her hand through her hair

Another more obvious version of the same thing, women subconsciously run their fingers through their hair and brush their hair to the side when they are attracted to someone.

Mirroring

Mirroring is exactly what it sounds like. Its copying someone elses body position or movements. If youre sitting next to someone you respect or look up to, and theyre leaning back with a foot resting on their knee, theres a good chance youre sitting the same way, but you dont even notice. This has importance in the game of attraction as well. A woman who is attracted to you will mirror your body position. If youre at dinner and youve got your hands sitting on the table a certain way, and you notice your date holding her hands the same way or picking up her glass when you do, thats a good indicator of interest.

Scratching the back of her hand, her shoulder or the side of her face

Now, she may truly have an itch, but if other signs are also present, she's interested.

Eye contact

If a girl makes eye contact with you several times especially if she looks down slightly or smiles after your eyes meet shes saying, Come over here! If your eyes meet and she looks to the side, shes probably just scanning the room and not projecting interest.

The laugh and head tilt

If she is laughing, she is showing interest especially if she laughs often, and what you're saying isn't all that funny. She may tilt her head which is meant to show that shes playful.

Direction of her body

If her shoulders are square toward your body, shes probably pretty engaged in what youre saying. If her body is facing elsewhere, shes looking for a reason to leave, and her body is indicating where she wants to go; however, a shy girl might face away from you and just send flirty glances in your direction.

Foot direction

Even if were not looking directly at someone, our feet will often point toward the people we are interested in.

Touching

Women find excuses to touch you when theyre interested most likely your shoulder or arm at first. While sitting, she may slide right next to you to point at something or show you something on her phone. If shes not interested, shell keep a safe distance.

Dilated pupils

Scientifically speaking, dilated pupils are a very strong indicator of interest; however, pupils also dilate when the room is dark, so don't rely solely on this. If you notice your dates pupils are dilated, shes into you, and shes probably ready to be kissed. Even if you dont want to go in for a kiss, at least you know shes attracted to you a definite confidence booster.

Leaning forward

Leaning forward indicates interest while leaning backward indicates disinterest. A great technique for generating attraction is leaning forward and backward while talking with a girl youre interested in. After she says something you find interesting, you lean in and respond with, No way, you like squirrels too? I love squirrels! If she leans back a little, you then lean back. As the date continues, repeat the same thing, leaning in at interesting points in the conversation and leaning back again. When your date begins leaning in at the same time you do, youve generated some attraction, and you can tell shes comfortable getting closer to you.

Practice paying attention to these behaviors with friends and even relatives before you rely on them in a dating situation. Human behavior is fairly predictable and entertaining! Good luck out there!
