Some people will be shy about it, some people will come straight out with ‘you’re really beautiful’ or ‘your eyes are gorgeous’ – different strokes, I guess.
The clincher for me is often people dropping into the conversation how much they like redheads.
How many times have you wondered if a person is interested in you?
Many people keep their thoughts and feeling to themselves, so it is great to have another way to “read their mind”.
(We don’t include fish, reptiles or birds in this analogy.) Long, flowing hair has always been a sign of feminine health and thus sexuality and child bearing ability.
A person’s body language is an obvious way of telling someone how he feels and a subtle way to share what he wants to say.
One of the problems with looking for signs is that it sort of encourages people to be passive and wait for the other person to signal their interest, whereas actually even if they’re crushing on you probably the best thing you can do is (respectfully and considerately) make your interest clear.
Yes, this opens you up to the possibility of rejection, and it does mean you really need to have figured out what you want from this person, but by doing that you’re a) maximizing the chances for them to respond favourably and b) ensuring that even if they say no you can gracefully walk away from the situation knowing that you’ve behaved well and courageously.
If they’re really keen you’re aware you’re their gender of choice – and/or that you display any other physical characteristics they really like – you might be in there.
If the person in question frequently compliments you, on your physicality or your mind, it’s generally a good sign.
