How to Tell if a Woman is Interested in You

It’s not always easy to tell when a woman wants you to approach her. But there are subtle signs that we will cover in this article so that you can decide in the moment whether to approach. 

But you also need to realize that, in general, there are two different types of women: the shy type and the confident type. Confident women are easier to read. It’s harder to know if a shy woman is not interested in you, or is just being shy.

In general, with either type, it’s best if you go with your own gut-instinct. A woman will give you lots of clues if she’s really interested. And if she’s not, usually, she’ll make that clear too.  

But more often than not, men don’t realize when women are interested and they lose out on the opportunity to approach. Both lose because if the woman wanted the man to approach her and he didn’t, she will be disappointed and think that he wasn’t interested in her. But when you learn what to look out for, it will be a whole lot easier to tell, and with enough practice, you’ll be able to read women like a book. 

There are many factors to this, and it’s never fun to approach a woman who is not interested. You must get your head into the mind of a woman to see life from her perspective. If she is attractive, she probably gets hit on multiples times per day, and it’s been happening since she was in her late teens. That’s a lot of guys! So, when she shows interest in anyone, it’s usually a rare occurrence. If she showed interest to every guy who ever approached her, she’d be one busy lady! 

The following signals are signs that a woman is interested in you… 

Eye Contact

Eye contact is the biggest sign. If she holds eye contact with you for even a moment longer than normal, that’s a sign, but not always. She could be holding the look longer than normal simply because she’s trying to size you up and figure out who you are. Or her mind may be somewhere else completely and she may not even realize that she’s staring. That’s what makes figuring out if a woman is interested or not difficult. Most women have trained themselves to not hold eye contact with men who they are not interested in. They have learned that it’s easy to give men the wrong idea. 

Let’s say you’re in a social setting and a woman across the room looks at you. If she looks at you, you look at her, and then instantly turns away, it may be because she is shy or doesn’t want to get caught looking at you. She may have turned away because of the sexual tension that she felt. If she looks back at you, she’s probably interested. But if she looks back at you and then smiles, that’s a total invitation for you to go over to her and introduce yourself. 

They say that the eyes are the window into the soul. You can tell a lot about how a woman feels about you through her eyes. If she is not interested in you, she will purposely avoid eye contact with you. 

She Smiles at You

In general, a smile from a woman is a good sign, but it’s not enough to determine if she wants you to approach her. If you were walking past her, it could be just a normal everyday happy smile that she gives to everyone, or it could be that she’s interested. If she walks past you, however, and finds an excuse to turn around and look at you, that’s a good sign that she’s interested. If she turns around and smiles at you, she’s definitely interested. Approach her right then and there if you’re interested too. Usually, only a confident, out-going type woman would do that. But a shy one may too. 

Even the type of smile matters. When a woman smiles with just her mouth and not her eyes, that could be just a cordial smile she gives everyone. But if she smiles with her mouth, eyes and all her facial muscles, that’s a much more genuine smile. 

There are other signs…

She Plays with Her Hair

This may seem a little odd, but when a woman plays with her hair right in front of you, it’s a sign that she’s interested. It’s called preening, and it’s a subconscious or conscious act on her part when she is feeling attraction. It may seem like a small thing, but it definitely is a good sign. 

What she is doing is making herself look more desirable – it’s almost like a mating call. But again, you have to be able to tell the difference between a woman who is doing that in order to get your attention, or one who just has a habit of doing that. This is why it’s best to look for multiple signs. 

She Fidgets with Her Clothes

If she fidgets with her clothes in front of you, it’s another sign. She’s suddenly become more self-conscious, and she wants to look her best, so she will naturally adjust her clothes. It’s a small thing, but it definitely is a sign. 

She Exhibits Open Body Language

If a woman is in a social setting, she can either have open or closed body language. Let’s say you’re in a club and there is a room where people are dancing. If she is approachable, she will be looking around the room and her body language will be open in the sense that she will be pointed towards the room. If she had her arms crossed and is not paying any attention to anything going on around her, then she’s has closed body language and is more than likely not approachable. 

If she is open, meets your eye contact and smiles, then she’s definitely interested. 

She Mirrors Your Body Language

If you’re sitting across the room from her, your eyes meet, you smile and raise an eyebrow towards her, and she mimics your smile and facial movements, she’s definitely interested. Whenever a woman mirrors or copies your body language, or your facial expressions, that’s a great sign that she’s interested. What it shows is that she notices you, and she’s attracted. 

Proximity Posturing

If a woman likes you in a social setting, she will usually let you know that she’s interested in you by making sure to place herself close enough to you that you will notice her. If you notice her getting closer to you, that’s a great sign she’s interested. It could be just a coincidence, however! So, make sure that you get more signs from her that she’s interested. 

She Brushes By You

Another common thing that a woman might do in a social setting is to brush by you closer than normal, even if she has enough room to make it past you. It’s her way of getting your attention and doing what she can to make it clear that she’s interested. 

Again, it’s best if you can get a few definite signs of interest before you approach her. 

She Sits Up Straight and Squares Herself 

Another sign is when a woman suddenly adjusts her posture. If she sits up nice and tall and squares off her shoulders, it’s a sign that she’s wanting to present herself in the best possible light. We all know intuitively that great posture shows that a person is self-confident and poised. It shows that she’s a good catch. 

What’s a Great Way to Get Experience with Women?

One of the most embarrassing things for guys is to approach a woman and get turned down, especially in front of others.

We know that making the first move is always difficult, so we work on it.

Embrazo students learn how to tell when a woman is looking for guys to approach her and when she needs a bit of quiet time.

We practice on how to make pleasant eye contact. Then, we practice how to read the signs that both men and women send and how to approach a partner who’s actually hoping to meet you.

And finally, we teach men how to take a “no” without getting offended. Guys often hesitate too much because they don’t want to get burned. We learn that getting a no is not a problem and we practice on it until everyone is completely at ease.
