Being aware of the signs that a girl wants you to move forward can help you to make the decision about what to do. When you know the signs, all you have to do is muster up the courage to act.


When a woman wants you to make a move, she'll get as close to you as possible, states Instead of talking to you or trying to listen to you from a distance, she'll lean forward into you. She may also move her entire body closer to you instead of just leaning her head in to hear or speak to you.
