When you are flirting with a woman, it often isn't obvious as to whether she has genuine interest in you or if she's simply having fun and playing around. Men are often deterred from pursuing relationships with women because they're not sure as to what she really wants. To save yourself from that lonely fate, familiarise yourself with some key signs of female attraction.
When a woman likes a man, she provides him with her undivided and full attention. She will not seem to be distracted or like her mind is somewhere else; her attention will be entirely on you and what you are saying.
One major indication that a woman likes you is if she asks you a lot of questions, particularly personal ones about your life (such as whether you have a current girlfriend or about your romantic history). If she either asks you direct questions or pries subtly to encourage you to tell her, she is showing a serious interest in you.
When a woman is attracted to a man, she often laughs (sometimes too hard) at anything a man says, whether it is in normal conversation or a joke (which doesn't even have to be that funny). Her laughing at your jokes is a signal that she likes you as a person.
Eye contact is a universal sign of attraction, whether you are a man or a woman. Direct and meaningful eye contact signifies serious attraction on a woman's part. This also applies to when you find her staring at you from the corner of your eye (and rapidly looking away in embarrassment when she realises that you've caught her).
Another sure-fire sign that a woman likes a man is when she talks about perhaps making some future plans together. For instance, if a woman tells a guy, "I didn't know you were into volleyball, too! Maybe we should get together sometime for a game," she is sending you a sign that she wants you to ask her out on a date.
Look at a woman's body language signals to determine whether she is interested in you or not. Some subtle and possibly subconscious signs of attraction include head tilting, licking lips, leaning forward when she talks to you, flicking her hair around and rubbing her neck.
A little bit of jealousy also signifies that a woman likes you. If you compliment another woman in front of her, look for her reaction. If she has a disconcerted look in her eyes or has a negative comment to make about the other woman, then she likely is experiencing a tiny tinge of jealousy.
