How to Read a Girl's Body Language

Understanding a girl's body language can save you many headaches further down the road. If you can read body language you not only know the words the person is saying but also what that person thinks and feels about what's going on. Everyone emits subconscious body language, and it's time you start learning how to read it.

How Close/How Far? Sitting or standing close to you is a good thing. The closer they are, the more they like you. The farther away a person gets, the less they want to be around you. It's possible that a girl would stand far away from you if she's got bad breath or something, but if you see this girl all the time and she's always standing really far away while you're talking with her, that's a pretty good sign she isn't interested.


Head Position Keep an eye on the girl's head position during your conversation. If she's tilting her head pretty far to one side, this possibly indicates sympathy, interest or general warmness. A lowered head can mean she's got something to hide, or that the girl is just shy. A cocked head means she is either confused or is challenging you.


The Eyes Watch out if she keeps looking at you and then looking away. This can indicate she's lying. It could also mean she is thinking about something else. If she asks you to repeat yourself then you know she's probably just distracted. Maybe you should talk to her later, or ask her what's on her mind.


Fidgeting If she's playing with her hair, necklace, rings or other item it usually means she likes you. Same goes for giggling and general giddiness.


Touch If you notice the girl going out of her way to touch you during the conversation, this means she probably likes you. Girls don't usually touch people if they think they're icky.


Sitting The way you both sit also says a lot. Newlywed couples tend to sit right next to each other and usually not across from each other, preferring to stay close. Couples in love will always try to connect with each other, and try to be in constant touch with the other person. But during bad periods such as break-ups neither partner will put in hardly any effort to connecting with the other. They will do things like staring out the window, playing with mundane objects like the girl's purse, they will both take active interest in anything other than the other partner.

very acurate ;)


girls? they are not worth the stress. No need to try reading their mind cos it's like digging the corpse of the biblical lazarus after 3 days in the grave.

Yes, Body Language says a lot about if a girl likes you a not. In fact I just finished writing an article on this. subject

Very interesting. I've also heard something about pupils being dilated when a girl likes you. Anyone know if there's truth in that?

Graham, I don't think the dilated pupils is true. Good article. I have to admit that it's very accurate. :)


Yes, A girls bodylanguage can reveal a lot about her. I remember reading about the dilated pupils in more than one place. So i guess that may be true too. All in all, a good writeup!

Cute :) Although I remember most of my looking away from a guy's gaze had to do with shyness more than anything else lol


Reminds me of an old gag booklet from the 1940s that I acquired from an estate. The title was: What I Know About Women. Inside were blank pages.

Great article,however,I think there is certain amount of mystery is fun.I will do everything just the contrary! To keep it interesting and keep them guessing! *wink LOL

nice article.. girl = mystery.. We need to find more clue to solve the mystery and it take times

very nice ... but whenever a girl strokes her hair repeatedly she is sending and invitation but what will you make out of a wife.... someone elses ....when she touches your arm and says oh something something..... and all must remember aperson shakes hands and also looks, almost stares in ur eyes.... then she really conveys xxxxxxxxxx


hey that iz not funny did you know that there iz 51% girlz and only 49% boys in the world. ha ha. we beet you boys to the ground so put that in your juice box and suck it real hard


girlz have rights to but it iz a good tip for boyz so nice

I am totally a fidget-er, hair, necklace, earrings whatever. Pupil dilation is accurate however. If the pupil is very large it means the subject is interesting or enticing to that person so they are trying to see and take in everything around them. However, it could also just be dark in the room.

Thanks for sharing...

Nice and interesting read.Great facts on body language!


Ya i too found it true....thanks dude

Try watching the series Lie to me and you will almost always learn something about body language. Nice read. Although I don't know about touching other items during a conversations. I do that...when I'm bored. But that's me.

Jillian hansen

only some of these are true,I am a female and I have read this article just to how truthfull these sites are and here are other true thngs that other woman like me do to attract males physically.


-pupils do dialate its like showing a signifigant interest

-they try to have their elbows bump yours,same with knees

-they will lean closer to you even if its just at a table from across

-they smile and subconciously flirt

-if they tend to tuck there hair behind there ear or scratch there head alot it is a good sign

-if there hands are closed alot then they have secrets if there hands are open they dont have secrets

-girls try harder around boys

now here are some point blank lies about body language for women

-girls do not whatsoever touch your hands and trace them and stuff thats to forward not alot of classy girls do that

-there eyebrows raising have nothing to do with liking a guy

i think that if a girl likes you she will tell u

if a girl likes you she will tell you


After following your advice I become more self-confident and meet with girls every day. They are so naive.
