Flirting through gentle crosses is one of the most simple ways to show someone you are serious. But if not done properly, it you give the wrong concept.

Whether it’s “accidentally” brushing against your date’s arm or hand throughout conversation, grazing them on the knees when they are sitting next to you, or gently playing with their locks, this kind of relaxed feel is flirty and hints at interest. ” Unaggressive catches are a powerful way to show involvement”, says Wale Okerayi, Lmhc Lpc, a licensed mental health advisor in New York and Texas. ” A light touch on the arm or hand is a great start, but can easily escalate”.

Another casual body language gesture that can signify flirting is gently grazing their thigh or leg. ” This is a more intimate and seductive move”, explains Brown. ” Their leg is more exposed than their arm, so it’s a good place to play with touch”.

If someone is interested in you, they may also subconsciously play with your hair or lips while talking. They might even bite a side of their lip or lick their lips while listening to you talk.
