Five Hints That Women Give Men


It can often be confusing and overwhelming trying to figure out if a girl is interested in you. Women can often seem to give contradictive signs, or none at all. I can speak from personal experience, as well as my wifes’s experiences that men often seem to miss their hints. Most of the time men will not pick up on signs that she is interested.

It’s not only frustrating for her, but also for you if you find out that she liked you after it may be too late. Not only did you possibly lose your chance, but she’s probably rather irritated with you. She may feel like you weren’t interested in her by not picking up her subtle signs, and therefore feel rejected. No need to fret. I’m going to give you some lessons on how to pick up on women’s hints.

Signs she’s into you:

1. Difference in Assertiveness Women are all different. Some are extremely shy about letting you know they like you. Some have no issues about being straightforward and letting you know what they want. This can get confusing. The assertive ones will let you know that they like you by asking you out, or simply telling you. The not-so-assertive ones will throw subtle hints, such as bumping into you constantly, or making sure she is consistently in your sight. She may also wear nice clothes and do her makeup when she knows you will be around.

2. Physical Signs She may touch you in a playful or friendly manner. Maybe she softly taps you on the arm in a seemingly playful fashion, or touches your hair (or head) while talking to you. These moves may be a sign that she is interested. If a someone witnesses this behavior, ask their opinion. Others may be able to pick up on it quicker than you can.

3. The questions If she asks about your personal life, she just might be into you. She could ask what you are doing tonight, about your hobbies, what you do on the weekend, or any other personal question. This most likely means that she likes you.

4. Friends She makes it a point to introduce you to her friends. A lot of girls want to get the opinion of her girlfriends. They want you to know who her friends are, and visa versa. This may be her start to have a fun night out as a group.

5. Her Look You notice that she is dressing a little differently around you, even something understated as new makeup or hairstyles. She might just be doing it hoping that you will notice. Tell her she looks good. Compliment her on her makeup or hair. The bottom line is that she probably won’t be the assertive type. If she were, then she wouldn’t give up until you knew that she was interested, or at least acknowledged that she was. You must keep an eye out for the signs a women will give: dressing nice when you are around, constantly starting conversation with you, making direct eye contact, touching you when she feels it’s alright, etc. make sure you ask those around you what they think, because they will notice it faster than you might. If she is showing these subtle signs of interest, she is waiting for you to make the next move. Tell her you like her, or ask her out!

  1. Ah the game is afoot. The age old dance between men and women. It can be very frustrating for both parties, but we must enjoy the torture on some level because like moths to the flame we keep on returning even after we get burned. It's very comforting for me to have a permanent mate. I can sit back in my lazy-boy and watch the dances with great amusement.

    Dance on my friends dance on, just try not to step on one another's toes :o

  3. Well those sure sound like good ideas, wonder how many times they really work. Good job getting all these hints together. Good luck guys.

  4. It's been a lot of years since I've played the dating game. Some guys are pretty clueless too. I'm pretty assertive so I just charged right in with my interest. Just saying.

    Have a terrific day Glenn. Big hugs. :)

  5. When will they figure out that we just aren't friggin' mind readers, and tell us what's on their minds? This phenomena doesn't end after they say "I do" either.

  6. Todd no it doesn't "end" after marriage if anything, you tend to find you know less then you ever did. The one thing marriage does do for you is, to train you for the universal Man-Law of Nodding your head in the affirmative, followed by a no problem

  7. Easy for you to say Ms Cute as a Bug ;-)

  8. If we only just all spoke the same language it would make things so much easier.

  9. Thanks for stopping by Debbie, I love your blog also. Folks if you have a minute by all means stop by and see the Goddess. A blog good for mind and body :-)

  10. LOL I thought we all did speak the same language. Unfortunately we men never enrolled in those classes of "The Unspoken Word" or "That Look 101"

  11. Give it up guys! Though it isn't really difficult, you will not figure us out. Generally I say what I mean, straight forward works for me.

  12. Some women (like myself), will never actually give any hints of interest. As I prefer things to "just happen", even if I acknowledge an interest in some guy, I'm confident he'd never suspect a thing as I would be no different around him than any other person.

    So sometimes I believe you guys have to just go for it. What's there to lose? If she's not interested, cut losses, try again with someone else…and if she is, you just saved yourself years of analyzing the hints she could be giving. It kinda aggravates me when women insist on giving tiny hints and are then shocked when no guy picks up on them. I couldn't imagine dealing with that if I were a guy, to know that it won't be the last time I'd have to scope out for secret meanings within the woman's gestures. Later on you find out you missed some important message that she made obvious (in her little mind) with some obscure action.

    Some women would be better off learning that men aren't exactly mind readers, as someone above me pointed out. It would save everyone so much grief to be straightforward lol.

    • Jessica, someday I wish all women could just exchange roles for a few months and see how hard it does get, especially if your one of the guys who get rejected a lot. It takes it toll. Not to mention many guys and gals have a hard time just being able to figure out something to say.

  13. Hey there Glenn,

    What a list. I would have been nice to know this when I started dating my wife. Would have been a lot easier on both of us if I knew what was going on. lmao! Later!

  14. Nice post.. like it! Women sometimes can be so hard to understand, they like you but always say the opposite ones. Confusing =/
