Relax! Next Line will analyze and craft the response for you!


While every woman is different, there are some common signs she wants you to make a move. Here's what to keep an eye out for.

Decoding Her Body Language

Discuss the importance of paying attention to her body language and how it can reveal her interest in you making a move.

One of the biggest subtle signs she's interested in you is her body language. It can say a lot without actually saying a lot.

Some of the things you want to keep an eye out for are below.

  • Does she position her hips so they're fully facing you? This is a subconscious movement that shows she's paying attention to you - and only you.
  • Are her feet pointing your way? Another subtle gesture that indicates she is only focused on what you have to say.
  • Did she move to get closer to you? If you were in another part of the room or group and she moved closer to you, that could be another indication that she wants you to make a move. She's making herself available.
  • Does she keep looking your way? If she's always checking out where you are and what you're doing, it's one of the most obvious signs. She's staring and can't keep her eyes off you - and that's a good thing!
  • Is she constantly touching you? Women show interest with gentle brushes on the arm. Maybe they grab you and hold on for a few extra beats.
  • Does she keep looking at specific areas of your body (lips, butt, package, etc)? She's likely lost in thought, thinking about all the things she wants to do with you.
  • Does she play with her hair? This is a nervous tick that many women have when they are trying to play it cool.
  • Does she fidget with her clothing? Another calming gesture, fidgeting with their clothing is another way to channel nervous energy.
  • Does she move and draw attention to certain parts of her body? Perhaps she wants you to look at her, so she's playing with her neckline, drawing attention to her cleavage, hips, butt, and more.
  • Does she lean in when she's talking to you? She's closing the space with you physically, making it so no one else can come between you.

All of these could be signs that she's interested in you.

Subtle Clues in Her Text Messages

Perhaps you're chatting on a dating app or texting. Even though you aren't in person, there are still some obvious signs that she's interested that you can look out for.

  • She replies quickly, but only to you. It's almost like she's waiting for you to text her. She's so excited to get the message, she forgets to play it cool.

  • She leaves room for you to ask her out. She'll lead you into a situation where it's easy to ask her out. She shares things she wants to do or expresses interest in doing something that's important to you.

  • She brings up details. Remembering the small things indicate that she's giving you a lot of thought. She's making an effort to be interested in your life.

  • She texts you randomly. If you don't text her, she may be done waiting. Perhaps she manufactures a situation to say she's thinking of you or just says hi. She wants to keep the conversation going.

  • She uses flirty emojis and gifs. Winky, kissy, and upside-down smileys can all indicate that she's trying to be playful. The same can be true about gifs.

  • She keeps it flirty, dirty, or both. This is one of the more obvious signs, but if she's overly flirty or sexual, she's interested in you. She just wants you to make a move.

Context Clues She's Into You

Sometimes other people can help indicate that she wants you to make a move on her. Here are some subtle signs to keep an eye out for.

  • Her friends are chatting her up. If you are talking with her friends, and they are only sharing how great she is and steering the conversation back to her, they may be trying to get you to make a move.

  • Her friends ask if you're single. Again, her friends are going to be her best wingmen. If they're asking if you're single, it's because they know someone who wants that information.

  • You're at something that you like to do. If she's doing something that you like to do in a group, chances are she wants you to make a move. She's giving you the green light by making herself available.

  • She's suddenly always around. If she's doing whatever she can to spend time with you, then that's one of the clear signs she wants you to make a move. She is hoping that you'll initiate conversations, and she's putting herself in the best situations to increase her odds,

Insights from Online Communities

If you're not sure that she's into you, you can always turn to the Internet! Online communities like Reddit have thorough posts that help men understand the signs that she wants you to make a move. Additionally, you can pose specific scenarios to get advice, it doesn't matter if it's on Tinder or in real life.

Some insights Reddit users have shared are:

  • She likes all your posts. She may not be sliding in your DMs, but she's liking all your social posts. Bonus points if she's accidentally liking posts from several years ago. She's deep in the weeds and deeply into you.
  • She compliments you. If she goes out of her way to say nice things to you, it's a great sign she's interested. She's happy when you're happy.
  • She takes extra care with her appearance around you. Women who want to be noticed pay extra attention to their appearance. They want to look nice, so if you notice a woman wearing more makeup, dressing nicer, or doing their hair, they may be trying to catch your eye.
  • She wants to help you. If you ask for help, she's the first to raise her hand. She will go out of her way to help you, no matter what it is.
  • She asks for your help. On the flip side, she may go to you to ask for help. She's showing that she can trust you. She knows you'll be there for her.
  • She cares about your opinion. She may start to ask your opinion. And, once she gets it, she makes changes accordingly. It shows that she pays attention to what you're saying.
  • She constantly finds ways to tell you she's single. Most women who are interested will try to work in a conversation that they are single. They want to make it clear.
  • She can get a little jealous about other girls. Other women make her nervous because she's not sure of where she stands with you.
  • She wants to visit your home. If she flat-out asks to come over, she's into you.
  • She wants you visit her home. Again, if she no longer wants to drop hints, she may just ask you to come home with her. That's a clear sign she wants you to make a move with her.

Now that you know some of the definite signs that she's into you, how do you go about making a move? Here are some strategies to help you move forward with confidence.

Building Confidence and Overcoming Fear

If you've ever felt tongue-tied around women, it can be hard to make that next move. Chances are, if she's done some of the above behaviors, she's interested. However, even with the clearest signs, it can still be hard.

  • Talk it out. Get advice from someone else. Bounce ideas off of friends, online communities, therapists, and more. This will help you get a new perspective and feel more confident that she's into you.

  • Practice. This may sound silly, but practice what you want to say! Look at yourself in the mirror or write it out. Type it out and revise it. Make sure that you feel confident in your next move. You don't want to sound too nervous. That may be a turn-off for some women.

  • Just do it. Rip the band-aid off and get it done. While rejection can be embarrassing, it's better than wondering what if. The next woman will be lucky to have you.

Romantic Gestures to Express Your Interest

Of course, you can simply ask someone out, but where's the fun in that? Some women like to be wooed, and here are some romantic gestures that you can use to express your interest.

  • Buy her flowers. This is a standard way to express interest, but a good one! Bonus points if you get her favorite flowers.
  • Buy her something that she likes. Perhaps she's not a flower girl, but she wants to see a movie or read a book. Buying her it can leave space for you to enjoy it together.
  • Ask her to dance. Play her favorite song and ask her to dance. It doesn't even have to be on a dance floor.
  • Surprise her. A woman admires a man who can be a little spontaneous, so ask her out when she least expects it. Take her on a hike or go to a coffee shop.
  • Be direct. In a world of online dating with endless options, sometimes being direct can be the most romantic gesture you can make. After all, they too may need help understanding you're into them.
