Body language and gestures of a woman in love
Reading Time 8 minute(s)
Ever wanted to have a magic wand to become irresistible to women and to guess what they think of you? What if all you had to do was learn to understand both verbal and non-verbal language? Indeed, non-verbal communication and body language are particularly interesting when it comes to dating.
Knowing when a woman is attracted to you is important to know if you are wasting your time or not. Sometimes a person may be polite and not want to push you away harshly, but her body language will lack expressive gestures and other non-verbal signs of attraction, which tells you that she is not interested in a romantic affair with you.
Discover the keys to understanding body language and the gestures and attitudes of a woman in love.
She has dilated pupils
It is scientifically proven that the eyes dilate when a person sees something they want. This is true for both men and women. If you are talking to a woman and her eyes dilate when you ask her on a date, she lets you know right away that she is interested.
She plays with her Hair
A woman who plays with her hair is particularly nervous. This can be a sign of embarrassment, but if she runs her hand through her hair, looks like she’s trying to comb her hair back, or moves her head in a way that sweeps her hair, then it’s a good sign. It’s a way for a woman to show that she cares about her appearance and wants to impress a man.
Head tilt can be a sign of interest and listening. It is quite natural to tilt the head when we pay attention to the person who is talking to us. It is also a sign of submission, it implies that you exercise some form of authority over them. It is a form of letting go that a woman expresses when she bows her head to a man. A woman who keeps her head upright is a woman who wants to maintain control over herself, or over the conversation at hand.
The meaning of a woman’s smile
The smile is a way for women to show their availability, especially during a first meeting. A woman who smilesis more attractive and shows his good mood and his pleasure to be there. Some smiles may be forced to make a good impression. However, if she smiles genuinely, it will be obvious because the smile will also reach the eyes and can be read on the face.
She licks her lips
Women often lick their lips when they are attracted to a man. They may do this intentionally to show their interest, in which case they directly support the man’s gaze. But most of the time, it is a reflex movement that they are not aware of. A woman can also pass her tongue over her lips mechanically during a conversation. Combined with constant eye contact, this is a clear sign that a woman is extremely attracted to you.
Pay attention to her hands
Although it may sound very cliché, a woman playing with her glass, or any elongated object (a jewelry chain, the stem of her wine glass, her arm, her neck…) conveys a desire of a sexual nature, or at least a frank physical attraction. Similarly, a woman who exposes her wrists or opens the palms of her hands shows that she is willing to receive your proposals.
Many women speak with their hands, which means they are emotionally invested in a conversation. The more a woman will use her hands to accompany her speech, the more emotionally involved she will feel. These emotions may come from the topic being discussed, but if it happens several times during a date, or when you bring up unimportant topics, she is probably feeling uncontrollable emotions for you.
She taps her fingers
Tapping her fingers on a table is usually a sign of impatience or boredom. She may simply be bored with the conversation, or waiting for something in particular. It may also be a sign that she is thinking about something specific and is about to make a decision.
She crosses her arms
When a woman crosses her arms, it can mean many things. Many people cross their arms when they are defensive. Women also cross their arms to express disagreement in a conversation. Some also cross their arms when they are bored. Others believe that theysimply feels the arms because they are cold. Therefore, it is important to examine the situation to know what a woman crossing her arms is expressing.
Watch her postures and especially her hips
A woman sexually attracted to someone stands with one hip thrust out and possibly one shoulder raised. This position can be used to emphasize her femininity, and can be seen as an invitation to go further. This position draws attention, unconsciously or not, to her chest and pelvis, clear evidence of an attraction to the man she is exchanging with.
Whether the physical contact is accidental or not, it is a strong sign that a woman is attracted to you. If she reaches out and touches you intentionally, even if it seems innocent, like the simple touch of a hand or arm, or more frankly like playing with the buttons on your shirt, it shows that she is interested.
The mirror effect
The mirror effect is when one person copies the movements of another during a discussion. It is usually unconscious. A woman may copy the body weight shifting movements, or adopt a similar posture of the man she is talking to. She may also copy the movements of someone who is touching her face or playing with the straw of her drink. This is a sign of attraction and indicates that the woman you are with is fully engaged in the exchange that is being created.
This mirror effect can also take the form of verbal communication: if on a date, a woman talks to a man and enjoys what he says, she might repeat something similar to him, cementing common tastes and interests.
The location of her purse
The way a woman holds her purse can tell you a lot about how she feels about you. If a woman feels uncomfortable or is not attracted to the person she is talking to, she may clutch her purse in her lap or against her body.
On the other hand, when a woman is attracted to someone, she will probably want her purse not to get in the way of further interaction, and may put it on the floor, or on a chair so that she is free to move around.
Keep in mind that if you are in a a crowded place with limited safety, she may keep her purse tightly wrapped around her for safety reasons. This may, in this case, not be a reliable indicator of her interest in you.
Increased heart rate
This is another unconscious and automatic response when a woman is attracted to a man. Her heart rate will increase. You obviously won’t be able to take a woman’s pulse on a date to see if she is attracted to you, but there are other signs. Increased breathing, and a warm feeling in the hands indicate a significant increase in heart rate.
Take a look at her feet
People automatically point their feet in the direction of their interests. While a woman’s feet pointing at you is not a sure sign of attraction, it does mean that they are at least interested in the conversation and the time they are spending with you. If their feet are pointed towards the exit, they are probably considering leaving quickly.
Don’t forget to look at her legs
If a woman often crosses her legs naturally, or by automatic, especially if she is wearing a dress or skirt, this position can also reflect a certain reserve, or even boredom. Likewise, if she frantically moves her ankles or knees, it may indicate a stressful situation. If her legs are straight, with her heels firmly planted on the ground, this is a good sign that she is comfortable with you.
In general, think about associating several of her body language signs and facial expressions before you imagine anything. It is important to avoid interpreting them in isolation so that you don’t get confused, as each one can have a different meaning depending on the context.
