It’s an all-too-common scenario: You’re chatting up a gorgeous woman you just met at a bar, but after 20 minutes of conversation, you still have absolutely no clue whether or not she’s interested. Before you back off, too afraid to make a play, start cluing into her body language.
Chances are, you’re underestimating the meaning behind her moves. Is she running her fingers through her hair? Stroking the base of her cocktail glass? Signals like these—and plenty of others—can be not-so-secret indicators of how she feels about you. To help you decode exactly what her postures, motions, and moves really mean, we’ve enlisted the help of two body-language experts.
Next time you’re at a bar, a party, or even hanging out in the park, use these signals to decide whether to put yourself out there—or retreat with your dignity still intact.
