No Talk, All Action
Since she’s not about to declare her desires for you as straightforwardly as you’d like, it’s up to you to seek out the non-verbal signs. Body language is a biggie. She is sure to make eye contact, which is crucial, according to Psychology Today. “People look at people they like and avoid looking at people they don’t like. The neurochemical oxytocin may be responsible for increased eye contact.” Consider oxytocin the “special sauce” that makes girls (and guys) start feeling those flirty butterflies. That said, beware of the girl staring you down; it's not a good sign. You don’t need a stalker.
Being extra "touchy" while talking means she wants to get close to you. She may “accidentally” lean in or brush up beside you, or “oops!” bump into you in the hallway. She’s not a clutz. She’s giving you a cue by engaging in these little things, AKA, invading your personal space. Realize these subtle ways she's showing she wants you and run with it.
DRESSING THE PART
Suddenly, the girl who seemed to only own ratty T-shirts and ripped jeans is all about sass and style. She shows up in form-fitting dresses and rocks her best heels. Even if she’s not the most fashionable of her friends, she spends time sprucing up, especially if she knows she’s going to see you. Call it her "glam giveaway." If she’s lucky, her more fashion-forward gal pals can help her up her game. Like in Clueless, Cher and Dionne helped Tai take her look to a whole new level. Thank those kinds of girlfriends later for making your (hopefully) future babe look so beautiful.
