Every single guy knows that the game of heterosexual dating and mating can be fraught with several challenges. Needless to say, asking any woman out can be a nerve wracking ordeal even for the most seasoned inveterate bachelor. Whether he’s a serial dater or a one-woman-man kind of guy, a man is saddled with the crucial task of being the aggressor when it comes to seducing the opposite sex.
The stakes can get very high once a man zeroes in on the female that strikes his fancy from across the room; his window of opportunity to win her approval and snag her attention away from other male competition at the same time may come to pass literally in a matter of seconds. Guys may think that girls can save them a whole lot of trouble if only they were the ones to do the picking instead of the other way around-but the truth is, women have the uncanny ability to check the opposite sex out first without them even knowing it.
So how does a man decode the unspoken language of female seduction? Women do the choosing; so the challenge really is to make a woman want to choose a man-not the guy on the left, right or at the back of the local watering hole. Here’s the female sexual playbook that can clue a man in on whether she’s really that into him.
1. SHE RESPONDS…FAST
Mobile communication has made it easy and convenient for people to reach anyone, anywhere, at any time. But when a girl doesn’t get back to a man pronto, the number of unanswered emails or text messages won’t make her change her mind or heart about a man. On the other hand, a woman won’t let her phone ring off the hook if the caller is someone she really fancies.
2. WHEN SHE RESPONDS, SHE DOES IT CAREFULLY
The fear of looking like a rambling buffoon can make an infatuated woman anxious over a man…so she chooses her words very well. She might even utter a nervous laugh while she tries to offer a witty response during a conversation. Her bodily reactions-such as deep heavy breathing, lips parted slightly in between conversation-can almost be perceptible.
3. THE TEASING (AND TAUNTING) BECOMES MUTUAL
A woman engaging in playful banter with a man is a dead giveaway of interest. They say that a woman doesn’t enter into a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent; but in the game of seduction, it can only be a win-win situation when the feelings are obviously mutual.
4. SHE PRIMPS AND PREENS FOR A MAN
What a man thinks matters to a woman in love-and this certainly includes her looks. Ordinarily women keep their grooming rituals at an acceptable minimum, but if she’s seeing the guy of her dreams on a Friday night she’ll pull out all the stops.
