Men find it difficult to interpret the more subtle cues in women’s body language and research shows that men tend to mistake friendliness and smiling for sexual interest. This is because men see the world in more sexual terms than women. Men have a far greater amount of testosterone than women do. This hormone is a key determinant defining sexual characteristics and behavior that causes men to prioritize sex in their world view.
Botox be damned! The only real smile, says Anita Barbee, a professor of social work at the University of Louisville, in Kentucky, is one in which eye muscles are engaged. People who grin for more than five seconds and only with their lips can be faking it. Frequent smiling in the workplace can make a person seem less serious.
#2 Look at the feet. You’d never think of it, but men usually point their feet in the direction of the person they’re interested in.

One way a girl may show she’s attracted to you is if she gets nervous and starts to fidget. She might twirl her hair or start toying with her phone/bracelet/necklace, etc. These are self-soothing gestures that release nervous tension. There may be other reasons that she’s feeling nervous (or maybe she just had too much coffee), so it’s important to take the context of your interaction into account when spotting these signs of interest.
Pupil – the round black centre of the eye which enlarges or contracts to let more or less light into the eye. The pupil generally enlarges (dilates) in the dark, and contracts in brightness. Enlarged pupils are also associated with desire and allure. Enlarged pupils are not a symptom of smoking drugs as commonly believed. This is probably a confusion arising from the fact that conditions are relatively dark when such judgements are made.
this is a tough one for me. I seem to be oblivious when men are flirting with me sometimes….This past weekend I met a guy at a friend’s group event and we were talking all night…I’m pretty sure there was some flirting going on and there was an exchange of information going on at the end of the night but I haven’t really heard from since the end of the night when I left the bar. Yes, see it was a bar which makes me think okay was it just the several beers we both drank? I don’t know but it’s frustrating because he was a cool guy….

Stashing your hands in your lap, stuffing them in your pockets, and holding them behind your back are movements of deceit—you’re hiding something. “A person may be telling you one thing, but these cues indicate you’re not getting the whole story,” says Barbee.
Notice his eye contact. If you have just met, he may look away every time he catches you looking at him. As you get more comfortable together, you’ll notice stronger eye contact and gazes that last longer than a couple seconds.
A guy who likes you will try to bridge the gap. When someone leans in when talking to you, he probably finds you Of course, the context matters, too. If there is limited space, leaning in is more of a necessity than a gesture to show he likes you.
The most direct sexual display a man can make towards a woman is the aggressive thumbs-in-belt gesture that highlights his genitals. He may also turn his body towards her and point his foot at her, use an intimate gaze and hold her gaze for longer than usual. When he is seated or leaning against a wall, he may also spread his legs to display his pelvis.
