Learn these subconscious body language cues and you might come closer to finding out whether the woman of your dreams is in love with you, too…
Relationship expert Tracy Cox spoke to Dailymail.
1. She flashes her eyebrows at you
When we first see someone we’re attracted to, our eyebrows rise and fall in a small, rapid movement. If they fancy us back, they raise their eyebrows in return.
We’re not consciously aware of doing this rather bizarre Groucho Marx type gesture, but it’s supposedly the most instantly recognised non-verbal sign of friendly greeting in the world.
It helps us to attract friends and lovers because it makes us look more attractive by pulling the eyes open and allowing more light to reflect on the surface of eyes.
2. She is fidgeting with her clothes
If she’s adjusting her clothing or smoothing it (particularly over your hips), she’s preening – making sure she looks your best.
Another dead giveaway: looking down to see how many buttons she’s got undone (and emerging from the loo with a couple more open).
3. She’s flashing her wrists
It means she’s s3xually interested if she holds her wrist so it’s turned to face you.
Wrists are definite erogenous zones probably because back in the days when women wore neck to knee clothing, the wrist and ankles were the only flesh ever exposed in public.
4. Her hands keep moving into your space
We use our hands to signal interest by moving them closer to the object of our desire.
If she moves her hands across the invisible line that divides the table in two or into your personal space, she’s hinting she’s looking for more than just a friend.
5. She’s sitting with one leg tucked underneath her, so the inside of her thigh is exposed
If her head and body also point towards you, you should consider himself wanted.
She’s revealing quite an intimate part of her body: one you’d normally only see during sex.
6. She’s crossed her legs
The leg-cross (twining one leg around so her foot crosses behind her calf and also the ankle) is a potent, yet polite, sexual signal.Why?
Well for a start, it makes her legs look good because it presses the flesh to give the appearance of high muscle tone.
Which sends another subliminal message: our bodies show increased muscle tone when ready for sex as nerves and excitement make us tense and primed for performance.
7. She keeps on crossing and uncrossing them ever-so-s-l-o-w-l-y
The more a woman crosses and uncrosses her legs in front of a guy, the more interested she is in him.
She’s either subconsciously or deliberately trying to draw your attention to her legs and genital area.
8. She’s kicking one leg up and down, while crossed, or dangling a shoe from her toes
Either are strong, deliberate and obvious signs of sexual attraction.
Women will often cross their legs towards their object of desire and begin to slowly and seductively kick their foot up and down in a thrusting motion.
(If you need me to tell you why imitating thrusting is sexy, you seriously do need to get out more).
If she’s really, really keen, she’ll follow this up by slipping her foot in and out of her shoe (the old in-out-in-out thing again) or dangle the shoe from the tip of her toes (I’m undressing myself already/Wouldn’t you like these shoes off and under your bed?)
9. She’s touching her neck, mouth and lips a lot
It’s called autoerotic touching: touching yourself where you’d like someone to touch you.
As well as sending a powerful subliminal message (get your fingers over here!), it feels good! When we’re sexually aroused the blood pumps ferociously through the body, making nerve endings tingle and our skin much more sensitive to touch.
An even sexier version: she’s touching her mouth while looking at yours!
10. Whatever you do, she does
Nothing bonds people more instantly or effectively than mirroring someone’s behaviour.
We do it subconsciously when we like someone because we like people who are like us.
If someone’s doing what we’re doing, we feel they’re not only on the same level as us but also in the same mood we are.
