Expert Dating Advice for Guys to Make You Dating Pros!

1. Small touches: Women express love or interest with physical gestures. If she lightly touches your arm, leg, or back, she is showing she’s interested. Sometimes this is a purely subconscious act for women, but sometimes it is a direct means of flirting with you. To encourage even more friendly flirting, reciprocate these small touches, but be sure to keep it G-rated and organic.

2. Make-up Touch-ups: When women go to the bathroom on a date, they often adjust their hair or reapply make-up. Pay attention to this. If you notice a fresh coat of lipstick, it’s a sign that she wants to look good for you. Lipstick draws the eye to the lips, and a fresh coat is a strong sign that she hopes for a kiss at the end of the date. If a woman isn’t interested, she’s not freshening up for you.

3. Personal Questions: Did she ask about your family at some point during the date? Was she curious about your goals and passions? The more personal questions she asks directly correlates to how interested she is in you. It’s natural to want to know more about someone you are interested in, but pay attention to her body language as she asks these questions. If she’s looking around or checking her phone, then she’s bored but trying to be polite. If she’s leaning into the conversation, that’s a great sign.

4. Commonalities: No matter what kind of relationship you are building with someone, whether it be friendly, familial, or romantic, sharing common interests is a great sign for the success of that bond. If you and your date discover commonalities and her demeanor changes to one of excitement, she’s probably thinking of ways to engage in these shared interests for future dates.

5. No phone: When are women truly alone? Almost never. Women rely on their girlfriends for guy advice, safety, and a way out of a bad date if needed. If thirty minutes into the date she checks her phone, you can almost be certain it’s a girlfriend checking in to see if your date is enjoying herself or needs an escape plan. If she quickly responds, apologizes, and jumps right back into the conversation, you’re in good shape!
