By definition, flirting is communicating in a way that signals attraction (Hall, Carter, Cody, and Albright, 2010).
Here’s the thing, though: Most people aren’t eager to experience direct rejection, so if they want to communicate interest, they might use indirect flirting strategies, strategies that resemble other, non-flirting conversation (teasing, joking, being friendly).
Leave a space of about 4 feet between you and the woman as you approach her.
Researchers at the Social Issues Research Center report that about 4 feet is an acceptable social distance to maintain.
At the same time, though, people tend not to overestimate flirting, which could be socially useful. Individual differences in the communication of romantic interest: Development of the flirting styles inventory. OK, I have to chime in here because I've been told by more than one person that I'm the biggest flirt they'd ever met.When they touch their necks, they are feeling sexy, and if they rub their thigh as they cross and uncross their legs, they are sending flirtatious signals. Even if the touch seems accidental and lasts only a moment, touching is a communication sign that signals trust or aggressiveness, either of which means a woman is ready to move the communication closer, or at least to another level. A direct look that lasts longer than a few seconds can indicate interest.If the woman's pupils become dilated while you stare into her eyes, she may be getting aroused and want to see more of you.People who are not receptive to a flirt might not even know it happened.In fact, it may not even be clear who exactly initiated a flirt in some cases because you are responding to something that may not be a flirt at all, and continuing the dialog.Of course, I'm still looking for signs that she is just jumping on an opportunity to get something out of me if she knows I'm interested, but, at least I have some control over the exchange.
