Our mind can be a tricky bastard at times, we all know that. And one of the worst times that it likes to play tricks on us is while we're talking to someone who we're romantically interested in, trying to read into everything that he or she is saying or doing.
While it can be frustrating trying to determine the different signs of someone you're hitting on, experts have revealed a few tricks to look for while chatting that person up—per Daily Mail—and you'll have to pay close attention to make sure you catch them to crack the code.
- 1. Closing The Gap
We all have our own personal body space that we protect at all times. If someone is interested in you then they'll do their best to get closer to you and break this down. This can be by placing a hand on your arm or by moving their chair a bit nearer. If you are responsive to their touch then things could escalate quickly.
- 2. Rapid Blinking
If you notice they are blinking much more than usual, that's a great indication they like you. That's because prolonged eye contact, combined with excitement, forces their eyes to dry out much faster.
- 3. Talking Too Much And Teasing You
Both men and women use teasing as a way of flirting. From an early age, boys and girls chase each other around, pull each other’s hair and so on. Well, we still do this in adulthood – making fun of the person we are attracted to or cracking jokes on them? It's a sure sign.
- 4. Noticing Little Changes
If they comment when you change your hairstyle or wear something different, then they could well like you. People who are interested will pay extra attention to the smaller details.
- 5. Playing Hard To Get
Unfortunately, some people who like you will try to make you think the exact opposite. They won't text you back for ages and won't make you feel special; that's because they believe they shouldn't appear too keen in case it's a turn off.

So now that you know a little insider tips, go forth and get that crush of yours—just remember to look for these physical traits to make sure she/he are giving off the same romantic vibes that you are.
