The line between friendly and flirtatious is very thin, but easily identifiable with a little help. That’s why we have created this list of 9 flirting signs between guys and girls.
Read below to figure out what they are!
Note: Some very intimate friends might do some of these things once in a blue moon, but if you notice them being done repeatedly and frequently, then the people are probably flirting with each other.
Giggles Are Life
When people like each other, more than just as friends, they will enjoy each other’s presences much more than they enjoy being around anyone else. Especially early on in the development of their bond. They will constantly be giggling, laughing and smiling when they are around one another. No matter what is going on, they will definitely be giddy and full of laughter. Nothing can seem to get down people who are flirting with each other, because in that moment they are completely full of bliss! They’ll be over there acting as if the other just said the funniest joke that has ever been told.
Women are more likely to giggle than men, but men will show those pearly whites like there’s no tomorrow.
They may even act as if one another is a celebrity and they are utterly starstruck by them. This is just what people do when they like each other.
They’re Excited To See Each Other
Notice that a person gets super overwhelming pumped when they hear another one is coming? They might get nervous, shy or extremely excited when they hear their crush’s name and hear the fact that they will be arriving shortly. This is definitely a sign that they have been flirting with each other.
All Hands, All The Time
A lot of flirting revolves around physical intimacy. Normally this intimacy will be extremely subtle. You might notice that people who are flirting are a little bit handsy with each other. Not in a necessarily inappropriate way, although sometimes it can be. The touching may be very timid. You might notice a guy and a girl who a flirting will often place their hand gently on places such as behind the neck, the shoulder, the knee or even the small of the back. They will do it nonchalantly, as if they do it every day.
There may be a little bit of hand holding in there, too. They might not do it for a long period of time, but a quick grasp of the hand is common when two people are flirting.
Women tend to put their hands on a man’s chest when the two of them are partaking in conversation with each other. Girls find a guy’s chest very appealing usually and when look for any excuse to get their hands on it. Women are also the ones that common touch a man’s hip bones and their shoulders.
Men, on the other hand, are the ones who commonly place their hands on the small of woman’s back. He might also get a little touchy, feely with her hair. He might run his hands through it. He could even be as romantic as to tuck a loose strand back that is falling in her eyes.
Although these are usually done by the said genders, both genders might do those types of moves on each other.
Trailing fingers down the arm is also a common flirting tactic, as well as caressing the arms or the legs. This won’t be overtly obvious, but if you pay close attention, you will most definitely see two people touching when they are flirting with each other.
They Only Have Eyes For Each Other
There’s no denying that when you like someone, you can’t seem to peel your eyes away from them for more than a few minutes. That is exactly why when two people are flirting with each other, they will always be looking at each other. They won’t be able to avert their eyes from one another very long. They will constantly be making eye contact. They won’t be shy around each other while doing it. We technically call this type of behavior ‘ogling’. Ogling is when someone stares at someone else in a lecherous manner. This is usually done when someone has sexual, intimate feelings for the person that they have chosen to ogle at.
Often you will find a man staring at a woman’s breasts when he is attracted to her. More so if she is wearing a revealing or form fitting shirt. He may also stare at her behind when she is turned away.
And you may catch a woman staring at a man’s private area. Especially if he is wearing tight pants.
This also means that when they are in a group of large people, they won’t look at any of the other opposite sex, because they are focused on the person that they are flirting with.
If one does end up looking at another person of the opposite sex, you might notice their flirting partner become overwhelmed with jealousy.
These are some of the most definite that signs a guy and a girl are flirting.
They’re Always Checking One Another Out
Not only will they have eyes for each other when they are talking, but they will also be looking at each when they are walking away. When they walk away from each other, you will notice that one person is checking out the other. This means that they have deeper feelings for them than just friendship.
Flushing and Blushing All At Once
The thing about flirting is it gets people all riled up. That’s kinda the point, though, isn’t it? When people flirt with each other they tend to start getting a little flushed. Getting flushed means that the blood flow increases and the increase will make blood flood their faces suddenly. Flushing is essentially what we call ‘blushing’. Blushing is associated with sexual anticipation. Well, technically it’s a reaction when someone is embarrassed or nervous. But being embarrassed or nervous doesn’t always mean something negative.
Your blood vessels open a bit more due to the increase of systemic response in this situation; The situation of being nervous around your crush. This tends to happen a lot when people are flirting, because it kicks this response into gear.
Usually you will see either the guy or the girl blushing when a compliment is given or when a move is made physically.
Solo Hangouts Are The Majority
Two people who are starting to develop feelings for one another will start making their hang out sessions a little more secluded. They might forgo hanging out with the group any longer, because they want to spend more time alone… So that they can obviously flirt with each other more intimately.
Flattery Is Everything
A lot of what flirting is, is flattering each other. Men and women alike turn to compliments to warm people up to them. You will hear them talk about how much they like this or that. They might mention how handsome or beautiful they think the person is today. There are many different types of flattering techniques. You might notice it is not always based on something physical. The flattery might come in the form of supporting someone’s work ethic or the effort that they put into something.
They’re Never More Than A Few Feet Apart
