Flirting is in a sense illuminating your inner light through your words and actions in such a way that people are irresistibly drawn to you. Women are often more subtle then men when it comes to flirting; comprehending whether a woman is flirting can be a difficult task.
Most of the visual cues that a woman is flirting often won't aggregate a green light for men, this is why it's vital to be familiar with the distinct signs that she is flirting with you. Virtually everyone, at some point in their lifetime will need to accustom themselves with the art of flirtation if they want to experience the pleasures of the opposite sex. So having some kind of knowledge whether it's small or big on the signs women give when flirting can be very helpful for the future, women are hard to be read but learning the signs or flirtation can make you one step closer to understanding how they behave towards someone they are attracted to.
If you have no or very little knowledge of the signs women give when flirting, you may not grasp when a woman is flirting with you and you may think she isn't interested in you may stop pursing her and focus your mind on something else.
So what are the main signs women give then flirting?
* Eye contact.
Most women make eye contact when flirting. Eye contact managed over five seconds or more when you're both not communicating together is very abnormal between friends; however, this is not unusual between two people who are in a relationship, so if she makes eye contact with you for long periods of time then this is a good sign she likes you. So baring that in mind, when your eyes meet, if she likes you she will hold eye contact with you longer then with someone whom she classifies as just a friend. Once she has held eye contact with you, she will look back at you; people tend to look away as it can make you and the other person feel uncomfortable, so usually there is a small break in between holding eye contact.
Eye contact can make someone like you, the brain remembers the last time that someone looked at you for a long period and this can trick the persons brain into thinking that they like you because they remember looking them into the eyes, this causes them to release phenylethylamine this is secreted by the nervous system when we first fall for someone. This is the same thing that makes our palms sweat, and also can cause us to have butterflies, so the girl who is flirting with you has phenylethlamine pumping through her bloodstream when you hold eye contact.
When women flirt, they tend to use physical contact with the person they are flirting with, they are usually more subtle then guys when they are making physical contact because they tend to be shy in front of people they are attracted to. If it seems like she walks past you a lot for no she's trying to get you to become aware of her. If she brushes past you this is an even clearer sign she is flirting with you, she may be doing it because she wants to have physical contact with you.
When a woman is conscious that you are looking at her, she will make herself look good if she likes you, she will adjust her hair, make-up or clothing, just anything to make herself look even better so you can see her at her best. Preening isn't carried out consciously in fact when a woman plays with her hair its usually because she's anxious so she's taking her mind off this feeling, because she is nervous around you or she just simply wants to look good in front of you.
* Playing games
Women often play hard to get, if they like a guy they will ignore them so the guy can chase them and work for them.
When you give her the attention she may tease you, call you names and give you a hard time, when she is doing this she is usually smiling or suppressing her smile, teasing is one of the main signs a woman is flirting with you, women do this a lot, she's just playing with you tease her back, it will show you are not boring and up for a laugh!
*They make an effort to keep the conversation going as long as possible.
When a woman likes someone she will try her hardest to keep the conversation going unless she is really shy, if she likes you they might ask you a lot of questions and keeps using various tactics to keep the conversation alive.
* She smiles at you a lot.
Most of us love a good old flirt, so if she smiles at you a great deal when you are talking it's a good sign she has previously being flirting with you, even if you haven't noticed... remember women are subtle flirters usually!
Understanding the signs women give when flirting can make it a lot easier to understand when a woman likes you; even though women are hard to understand knowing a little about the way they flirt with people they are attracted to can give you all the guidance you need in knowing that she is interested, so you won't give up too early!

Sometimes you can never predict if a girl likes you. For instance, I tried to make a girl laugh one time and she told me that I wasn't even funny and then walked off. After a few days, she asked me out to lunch. Still not sure if she likes or hates me.
