Hello ladies and gentlemen, we are back with Women Wednesday, the weekly series where I provide advice about the ladies through meat analogies. This week’s topic is how to tell if a girl likes you.
When you are cooking a Filet, you want to cook it to perfection. If you take it off the grill too early, it is too rare. If you take it off too late, it is too well-done. Many of us will not take the Filet off the grill unless we know it is ready. This is why being able to tell if a girl likes you is important. Before you make your move, you want to be sure that this girl is into you. Am I right? Of course I am. I used a meat analogy.
So first let’s talk about body language. When you are cooking a Filet, you probably have a specific time that you are planning to cook it for. You tell yourself that you will cook it for x minutes one side, x minutes the other side, but truthfully, you won’t take the meat off of the grill until it looks ready. This is why recognizing body language is important. First off, take note of what the girl is doing when she is talking to you. Is she constantly touching her hair? Is she putting on makeup or adjusting her clothes? If so, she is trying to make herself look presentable. She is grooming herself because she wants to look good infront of you. Also, make a note of who she hangs out with while in a group of people. If she sticks near you when there are other people around, she obviously wants to be around you. But girls aren’t ever very straightforward. When you are away from this girl, take a look at her and her friends. If they are looking at you while whispering, laughing, or trying to look natural, they are talking about you. Trust me when I say: Girls love talking about guys. If they are staring right at you as they talk under their breath or while using their hands as shields, they are kind of using you as a visual aid. As they are speaking about you, they look at you. Why? Ask a woman. What, did you think I had a meat analogy for that? Psh.
As for verbal signs: If the girl is very giggly and smiley when she talks to you, that is a good sign. When she talks, does she stutter or break off her sentences? Does she talk really fast to explain what she is trying to say? Awesome. She wants to tell you a lot, but your presence trips her up. You make her nervous. Yes, girls get nervous too. What does this girl do when you tell a joke? Does she laugh even if the joke isn’t funny? That’s great news.
Basically, if this girl gets fidgety and clumsy with her words, she may be interested. I say may because there are some more definitive way to tell if a girl is interested. Two, actually. First: personal space. Everyone has a personal space bubble. When you order your steak at a restaurant, you have a waiter. Let’s assume that this waiter is a female, thus making her a waitress. If she is attractive, you won’t mind if she gets a bit close to hand you your silverware. If she is not very attractive, you will likely keep your distance when you place your order. If a girl is attracted to you, she will break the personal space barrier. Whether it be with her legs, her feet, or her arms, she will break into your personal space. Bumping elbows, brushing up with her leg, or playing with your feet with hers is a sure sign of attraction. Think about it. You don’t enter someone else’s personal space unless you are attracted to them, and neither does a girl. If she shares some of her space and is easy about you entering her personal space bubble, she want you to be closer to her.
But the most definitive way to tell if a girl likes you is perhaps the easiest one to notice: The eye contact. I cannot stress this enough. If you and the girl in question can lock eyes and not pull away for a long moment, that’s it. The deal is sealed. The spark is there, and you are all clear to ask the girl out. If you could stare into this girl’s eyes and keep her from breaking off eye contact, it’s official. This isn’t some kind of poetic junk I made up. It is absolutely true. If you could look into her eyes, and if she can look into yours for a long period of time, she likes you.
The first things I mentioned are subtle signs of attraction, but these last two (personal space and eye contact) are the really big ones. If the last two apply to you, you are all clear. The girl likes you.
But let’s keep in mind that there are some things that may seem like indicators but are not. Anything over technology, such as text, chat, Facebook, etc. cannot determine attraction. An extra smiley face in a message or lots of lol’s tells you less than nothing. I must address this because I have seen people get excited over these things. Truthfully, they mean nothing. Also, hugs from a girl does not make it that she likes you. Hugs are very common nowadays, and are now equivalent to a handshake from a girl. Yep, not very symbolic of anything.
So the bottom line is this: If the girl gets fidgety and smiley when you talk to her, gets closer and touchier, and maintains eye contact with you, she likes you. But be wary. This attraction doesn’t last forever. If the Filet sits on the grill for too long, it loses it’s perfect medium-rare quality. Instead, it becomes well done. And, ladies and gentlemen, remember this: Once a steak is overcooked, there’s no going back.
So that’s how to tell if a girl likes you! Guys! Did I help? Ladies! Am I right? Am I wrong? Also, do you have a suggestion for next week’s topic? Please leave it below. That’s all for today!
