Just a quick, simple question. What are the typical signs that a girl is flirting physically, as opposed to just being clumsy?

I mean, is there a specific level of contact in general? Is it usually made obvious or kept hard-to-detect-subtle?

I was working with a girl today and she seemed to be getting quite close to me. At one point she was stood in front of me chatting and she kind of let her hands just sit against mine, back to back, for a good five or so seconds.

Then, when I was reaching across the table to pick up some stuff, she seemed to sort of lean in towards me a tiny bit so that her...err...exclusive lady components were in contact with my arm. She stayed like that for a little bit while we talked. So that surprised me a bit.

I'm not sure she's my type of girl (she's very pretty and seems all around nice, but also smokes and does tend to curse rather a lot!), but I'd just like to know if that kind of thing is just typical clumsy behaviour or if it's actually kind of unusual for a girl to put those kinds of body parts in contact with someone she's indifferent to :\
The hand thing could just be that she's a physical person when she talks to someone. Personally I hate that, but there are people who do it. Her resting her boobs on your arm...that seems like she's flirty. Doesn't sound like clumsiness to me. Being clumsy is like if she fell into you tripping over her own feet and her hand accidentally groped your groin, and she profusely apologized for it.

Does she do this with other people? If not then she is definitely flirting with you.
Did she look at you or smiled as she did that?

If so, then I'm pretty sure it's flirting.

if you suspect it might be flirting, it is probably flirting.

Sorry, you guys must be so sick of me asking all these naive questions! Sad

I haven't seen her do it with other people. I dunno, it was just long enough and odd enough for me to start feeling slightly blush-y Toungue

We were working in a lab however (so there's a lot of moving about and close proximity stuff). There was no reason for her to be that close to me right then though, let alone lean her boobs against me o_0

She's a couple of years older than me and I think I just want to stay friends with her. Which is odd because she is actually really attractive and friendly, I'm just not sure that she's right for me personality wise.

After work she was super chatty as well, kind of asking me a bunch of stuff about where I live and so on. So that was sweet actually, it was nice to talk to someone a bit.

Gah...I'm always stuck in an awkward situation whenever this stuff happens. That is if she was flirting in the first place XD

Well, she was just talking to me casually really, just a neutral facial expression. But it was kind of like "Oh hey, let's talk a bit while I prod you with my lady lumps!" sort of talking :\

The last girl (who I'm still keen on) who sort of "flirted" with me smiled a whole lot more, but now she seems indifferent to me. So overall I'm kind of confused with flirty behaviour!

She was flirting and interested. Toungue
Yep yep yep, and women don't usually push their breasts up against a guy unless they are cutting your hair.

Well, my hair is getting a bit long now...lol Smile

It just seems kind of weird that a girl might actually like me that way, not sure why :\

Soph, you think so, really? That short post made me disproportionately happy! ^^

She asked where I'd like to settle with my "wife" in future, which seemed like a bizarre question too. She did sit with me a couple of weeks back, I remember her legs being unusually close to mine at the time. So maybe it wasn't my imagination after all. Oh, if she was just a little bit less smoker-y and a bit less sweary I'd be feeling plainly happy right now, rather than strange hopefulness mixed with dread Toungue

And there's still the problem of the other girl too. I guess I should just stop thinking about this unless something crazy happens.

Don't always assume flirting means someone is interested, some of us flirt for no other reason than it's fun.
