Most women would probably say that all men are flirts and what not, but how many of us are really sure that the cute guy was really flirting in the first place? This is not a definite guide, but I think after having met and disposed off many a flirts along the way, I can safely write some handy hints for the babe in the woods or for that lucky girl who really has a hunk interested in her (and not some pesky creature). Well, girls, if he is interesting, then go ahead (whether he flirts or not). But if you are just not sure, then read on to get acquainted with ways to know a that guy is flirting with you.
Ok, so he's gorgeous and all that jazz, but if you want a date with this hunk, then simply stare back. This is not a tip to flirt back, rather it should be done to gauge the way he stares at you. An obvious flirt can be spotted even on a crowded dance floor. A guy generally starts looking at you and glancing all over (which can be really irritating sometimes). A not-so-interested man would not look at you in the first place. So, make eye contact, and if he's a flirt, he is bound to keep gazing or even have a slight hint of a smile playing on his lips. Well, the way a man glances at you should also be taken into consideration. For all you know, the young chap may be glancing at someone behind your shoulder. So, was it a quick glance? Was it done many times? Some guys may be bold enough to approach you immediately, whereas some of the shy guys may actually toy around with their glass for a couple of minutes before approaching you.
A guy is definitely flirting with you when he is standing too close to you although you have only met for dinner. Some of the flirtatious varieties may even try to get too cozy. So, look out for his body language. He may casually fling his arm over your shoulders or may not even move his leg away even if your leg may accidentally brush against his. He may also laugh a bit too loudly. Also notice if his body is inclined towards you all evening. Even if he is at the other end of the room, you may see him constantly trying to dazzle you with a brilliant smile. Girls, if all these symptoms match, the guy is flirting with you for sure. And if he irritates you like hell, well, you just need to look the other way. There are many a fish in the ocean ladies!
A guy who is all out to flirt will definitely want to impress the lady. This display of affection can be seen in various forms. A flamboyant personality may send you a bunch of flowers at work (to advertise his interest) or one of the smarter species may even try to strike up a conversation with you. He will try his hand at cracking some of the funniest (and maybe also the saddest) jokes, and try his best to have you by his side through prolonged conversations over dinner or at the party. The guy is definitely flirting if he asks you for your cell number and calls you up the very next day to know how you are doing although you have just met the previous night!
Not all guys can be irritating though, and the more interested varieties may actually turn out to be good listeners. If he is genuinely interested in you, he is bound to listen with rapt attention to what you are saying as a sign of respect and also as a way to know more about you. If he remembers the details about you, then he is really interested, so do not shrug him off!
Some guys are born flirts and can say it directly with words! It's obvious when he says you are beautiful and wants to know where you live. You ought to be really dumb to not know he is flirting with you in such cases. If he messages you all the time and showers lavish words of praise, then you should be well aware what you are in for.
All in all, flirting is healthy and can be fun. As long as you do not hurt the concerned person, a little bit of harmless flirting never harmed anyone. But, if the guy is as interesting as the walls in your bedroom, then you definitely have a problem on your hands!
