Look, we get it! Flirting signs can be incredibly difficult to pick up on. Frankly speaking, we're sort of glad that most guys are a bit slow on the uptake. It's better to assume that a girl is being friendly, than to assume she's into you...when she's not. At the end of the day, unless a woman flat out says, "let's get it on", you should in NO way think you've "scored". Consent, guys — that's the name of the game.
That being said, there are some tell-tale signs that a lady might be feeling you a little more than friendship. Granted, women are pretty used to having to be nice to creepy guys at work/the gym/the entire planet to satisfy the fragile male ego, but on the rare occasion a girl actually does like you, these signs should be useful. Let's give it up for Reddit user, QueenSkunky for posing the following question:
"What are some sure signs that someone is flirting and not just being friendly?"
That'll Do It
"Physical contact. People normally avoid touching others they don't know well. A hand on the back, let's say. Or sitting close enough to touch arms or legs and not moving to create a gap."
A Cautionary Tale
"I asked my wife the other day how often she accidentally brushes her boobs agains people. She said never and asked why. Apparently her friend is flirting with me. I had no clue. She finds it hilarious."
The Blunt Approach
"From my own personal experience at a hostel in Switzerland... when a girl says 'Jesus Christ, how many more hints do I have to give you, come over here and make out with me?'"
"It's tricky, because flirting almost has to be ambiguous. But generally, if someone goes out of their way to talk to you, and their eyes are searching yours intently as they talk to you, it's a good bet they're wondering if you feel it too."
"If they touch you AFTER the first 30 seconds of the interaction stay alert. If they touch you again they are flirting with you."
"Sexual innuendo in a way that would otherwise be out of place. Some people always make jokes like that, but if they only do it with you, they're probably flirting."
Testing The Waters
"Good way to check. if you are chatting move a little closer. Then after a minute step back again. If they then close the gap back, it's a good sign."
Read Between The Lines
"'It won't be the same without you around', when you miss some event/workday."
