Signs women give men to show they are interested

I remember reading in a psychology book when I was going to school at night that men more than women misinterpret signals from the opposite sex. It was focusing more on the work environment but was most likely to happen outside of the workplace too. This causes men to perceive a woman's kindness and/or friendliness to be more than meets the eye when in fact it is nothing. And as a result, many men have fallen victim to innocent tokens of friendship thinking there was an avenue to pursue...and there wasn't. Certainly no fault of women since miscommunication happens in all walks of life and sometimes men look for the littlest hint, sort of like wishful thinking. So, to avoid those types of situations, my question is: What do you women do when you know someone and want to show your interest without coming right out and saying so?

Re: Signs women give men to show they are interested

Well, I'm a relly outgoing person but, when I am interested in someone or have feelings for them, I get very shy. I smile and look away and proably get beet red! LOL! Anyway, I'm really shy around people I like so, basically if I like you, I will ignore you! I'll give you one guess why I'm still single. <IMG SRC=""><p>[This message has been edited by KC Lee (edited 08-06-2002).]

Re: Signs women give men to show they are interested

I can see where men would have trouble distinguishing whether or not a woman is interested. We have the same trouble with men. There are some women, like men, that will come right out with it and it's obvious. If I'm interested in you, you'll know it. When a man is interested in me and I'm interested in them, I will make an effort to talk to them...about anything. If a man calls that I'm interested in, I will answer the phone and accept a date. If I can't make a date on the specified time, I will recommend another.

These things do not mean a woman is interested:
If she looks at you...many times I just look at guys who are looking at me...doesn't mean I'm interested, just means I wondering why you are looking at me. <IMG SRC="">

If she talks to you. Some women just talk to be talking. Now if a woman IS interested, she will typically ask questions about you. We wanna know! If I'm not interested in you or in dating you, I'll just answer questions. Depending on the questions that is.

I know this sounds stupid, but I can watch a guy and a girl from across the room and know if she's interested or not. I feel like women are pretty obvious, of course I can read the language.

It might be easier if you guys asked specific questions...such as, "if a woman does this, is she interested?" I can give you probabilities; there are some pretty universal signs, but remember, like men, not everyone is the same.<p>[This message has been edited by Angie E (edited 08-07-2002).]

Re: Signs women give men to show they are interested


What you said about talking and not asking questions hit the nail on the head. The reason I asked is there is someone I have been interested in for a while, but never felt her feelings were reciprocated. When I have talked to her on the phone, she has been more friendly recently than at first. Now mind you, she is a receptionist and when I talk to her it is at work, so maybe she doesn't have the capability to hold a conversation there. But, I never asked her out and after reading your reply, I think I did the right thing.
