10 Surprising Signs That They're Interested When someone fancies you, they dont always show it in the way youd expect. Miss the signals, and your chance has gone. Next time, look out for these surprising signs and dont let em get away. 1. They dont talk to you Theyre so scared of looking foolish in front of you that they dont risk it. You need to take charge. Start a conversation. Expect some nervous babble, but be encouraging and interested. Their confidence will grow and theyll soon start to make sense. 2. They tease you Schoolkids tease their crushes in the school playground, and none of us ever really outgrows the habit. Attack is the best form of defence, in love as in war. If someone you fancy teases you, dont give them a slap; give them your phone number. 3. They hide from you As with the teasing and silent treatment, this one is a form of defence. If you cant see them, you cant see them fall on their face, blush until they burn, or humiliate themselves in random heartbreaking ways. 4. They dont seem to remember you So, you had a brief drunken encounter six years ago, and it has faded from their memory. Thats what they want you to think. They want you to think that theyre far too busy and popular to recall it. In fact, the memory is etched onto their brain and lived out in filthy fantasies every single night. 5. They suggest splitting the bill on your first date If youre a woman, you probably assume that hed buy you dinner if he fancied you. If youre a man, you assume that shed let you pay if she fancied you. Wrong. When someones interested, theyre careful not to seem over-keen, or out to buy affection or sex, or in the womans case tight-fisted. 6. They push back their shoulders when they see you Its not an obvious signal, but its a very common one. We respond subconsciously to an attractive person by improving our posture: men puff out their chests slightly, and women arch their backs. 7. They flirt with your friend Rather than be rejected by you, theyre seducing you by stealth. If they can impress your friend, your friend will spread the approving word to you. Then they can find out from your friend whether youre interested. 8. Their friend flirts with you Theyve sent their mate on a mission to involve you in a group night out, where they will make their move. Classic strategy. 9. They babble nonsense at you The power of your attractiveness has short-circuited their brain. Chances are theyre dimly aware that their mouth is spouting nonsense, but its out of their control. 10. They ring you up to moan about a terrible date You think youre in the Friend Zone, but the truth is that they want any excuse to phone you. Whats more, by whingeing Back to home.
