Women can be hard to read and, at times, may even seem too complicated to understand. However, the problem might not be that women aren’t communicating with you, but that you just aren’t looking for communication in the right places. Even when a woman isn’t saying anything, she may still be using her face and body to tell you everything. More so than men, woman naturally use body language to communicate. Since women are sending you messages with their body language all the time, why not jump in, roll up your sleeves and learn to understand them

Reading male and female body language takes practice. But, once you get the hang of it, you’ll wonder why you didn’t figure it out sooner. Even if most women don’t realize it, they use body language to send signals about their mood and wishes.

Interestingly enough, since a good portion of female body language signals are sent unconsciously, they often reveal thoughts and desires that would otherwise remain hidden. Not only do women say much of what they are thinking and feeling with body language, they also use body language to communicate things they are too shy or embarrassed to say out loud.

What to Look For

Reading female body language is an invaluable skill to own. This holds true for guys looking for a new relationship.  It’s also important for married men. While body language is a complex system of communication, just about anyone can learn  it. You just need practice and to know what to look for.

Below, we’ve decoded some of the most common female body language signals for you. So, you can be reading female body language with confidence in no time flat.

Reading Female Body Language: Flirtation and Desire

Reading female body language is a great way to figure out whether a not a woman is into you. At the same time, body language can also let you know when you’re better off leaving a woman alone. Next time you’re trying to flirt or need to figure out whether a woman is hot for you, try looking at her body language for the answers.


Noticing how close a woman is (or isn’t) to you is a simple way to determine if she likes you. If she stands less than arm’s length from you, she is probably comfortable around you. And, she may even be trying to get you to notice her.

If a woman leans in while talking with you, then she is engaged in what you are saying. She is probably trying to flirt with you. Similarly, you should look at the orientation of her legs. Is she sitting with her legs close to yours or with them pointing at you? If so, she may be interested in getting to know you on a more personal level.

Furthermore, if a woman finds excuses to touch you (often on the shoulder, arm, or leg), then she is sending a positive signal.  She is showing that she likes being around you, and she wants to be close to you. On the other hand, if a woman positions herself far from you, or if she stands or sits with her body angled away from yours, then she is probably not particularly interested. Also, pay attention to her reactions. Does grazing or touching her cause her to tense up? If so, it may be her body’s way of letting you know she is uncomfortable.


If you catch a woman looking your way from across the room, then she is probably trying to get your attention. If she makes repeated eye contact with you, or if she seems to maintain eye contact for longer than normal, then she is paying close attention to you which is one of the body’s ways of communicating interest and flirtatious desire.

Additionally, even though it may seem a little clichéd, batting her eyelids really is a woman’s way of trying to get someone to notice her, so if you can’t keep your eyes off her lashes, it may just be because she wants your attention.

Also, pupil dilation is one of the body’s ways of communicating arousal, so if a woman’s pupils seems larger than normal when she is around you, it might be time to make a move. However, if a woman seems to be avoiding your gaze, or if her eyes seem unfocused and bored while you are talking to her, she probably isn’t enjoying your conversation as much as you might like.


Smiling is an obvious, but important way that women communicate positive feelings for someone. Does she smile or giggle a lot when she is around you? If so, you can rest assured knowing that she enjoys your presence.

Moreover, does she draw attention to her lips by licking or biting them? If so, she may be showing she’s aroused or would like to get to know you further. However, if a woman is reluctant to laugh or if her lips seems pursed or tense, then she may be anxious, unhappy, or eager to leave.


Playfully twisting hair, fidgeting hands, and fiddling with jewelry are all potential signs that a woman likes you. Women often get a little nervous when talking to someone they like. This can cause them to move their hands more than normal.

Additionally, check if she often touches her own neck, chest, shoulders, or lips. This could signal that her body enjoys your presence and is interested in you. On the other hand, there are some clear “not interested signals” to look out for. For example, if her hand or arm movements seem strangely jerky or rushed. Or, if she runs her entire hand through her hair in an exasperated manner she may be signaling she’d rather be alone.

Reading Female Body Language: How To Know If she Is Lying

While there is no surefire way to tell if someone is lying just by looking at them, there are several body language signals you can look for if you are worried that a woman might be trying to deceive you.

It is difficult to remain relaxed while lying. So, if a woman seems unusually tense or is abnormally still, then she may be trying to hide something from you.

Also, check her hand movements. Does she frequently moves her hands toward her mouth or cover her mouth while she speaks? If so she might be lying. Lying may also cause a woman to speak at a lower volume. It could also make her speak in an unclear manner. When people are being dishonest, they are often ashamed of being found out. So, it is natural for their bodies to respond in ways that obscure their words.

In A Nut Shell

Body language is, for the most part, a remarkably honest system of communication. While women are often rather self-conscious of what they say when dating or meeting someone for the first time, the messages they send through body language are often much more open and direct.

Becoming a practiced reader of female body language is a great way to gain confidence while flirting and interacting with women. When you know what a woman wants, it’s much easier to act appropriately. Reading female body language can also help you avoid unpleasant rejection by helping you quickly realize when a woman isn’t really interested in you.

Now It’s Your Turn To Start Reading Female Body Language

Of course, always keep in mind that not every woman’s body language is exactly the same. The information in this article is a great starting point for learning to read female body language, but remember that everyone has their quirks. When you are getting to know a woman, pay attention to her body language so that you can learn which signals she uses most often as well as how she tends to use them.
