Some of us are bad at flirting, while others don’t know how to recognize when someone else is flirting with you. Many people are flirted with, but they misinterpret signals and believe the other person is being nice. Recognizing the signs of flirting is essential, whether you’re looking for love or simply want to avoid sending out the wrong signals. Why pass up the chance to meet your potential soulmate? Here are all of the universal warning signs that you’re being flirted with.
1. longer eye contact than usual
If someone makes prolonged eye contact with you, it indicates that they are flirting with you and find you attractive. According to science, people who look into your eyes are more likely to feel affection or attraction afterward.
2. Playing with their clothing
There are numerous nonverbal cues that can be used to express romantic interest. One of them is when the flirt begins to play with a button or sleeve. Women do it all the time with their hair, as well as batting their eyelashes. When we are interested in someone, we fidget.
3. They make fun of you or make an awkward compliment to you
Neither of these is sweep-you-off-your-feet moves, but if someone is jokingly picking on you (not in a disrespectful way, of course), they could be interested in you! A backhanded compliment or light teasing is a good way to gauge your reaction. Just make sure you aren’t being bullied or ridiculed.
4. They find a way to touch you during a conversation.
Let’s face it, we’ve all had an arm graze or an “accidental” bump. The moment when you put your hand over the popcorn. If you are seated, the person may lightly brush your feet or touch your arm. This type of body language actually sends attraction signals to your brain.
