Numerous studies have shown the link between sex pheromones and arousal, and pheromone infused colognes and perfumes make it possible to increase your attractiveness to the opposite sex. A few spritzes before you walk into the bar or the club, and you’re guaranteed to get some extra attention.
But how do you know that your pheromone cologne is working and that the woman you’ve got your eye on is actually into you? Women flirt much differently than men do, making their attraction much less obvious. If you’re having trouble, just look for any of these 13 telltale signs – a woman’s body language can reveal so much more than you think!
13 Signs That Your Pheromones Are Starting To Work
Eye contact is one of the easiest ways to tell if someone is engaged and interested in you. During a conversation, are her eyes on you, or are they constantly darting away? If she’s gazing into your eyes, she’s trying to connect with you.
It doesn’t just have to be up close either – making eye contact from across the room is another good sign. Do you catch her staring at you, even after you turn away? When you turn away smiling, do you look back to see her smiling too? Then she’s probably into you!
Is she laughing at all of your jokes, even if they aren’t very funny? Yeah, she probably likes you. Contrary to popular belief, women don’t really like funny guys – they think that the guys they like are funny. Pay attention to the way that she laughs too – women often giggle on purpose to appear more feminine and youthful.
If a woman is attracted to you, she might move in a little closer if you’re sitting or standing next to one another. Most women are very subtle about this move, but if you pay attention to her body language you might notice her take a small step closer after you say something particularly funny or interesting.
Of course, if you’re in a crowded club, you might not be able to avoid being close to other people. But if she chooses to be close to you even when there’s plenty of space, then there’s a good chance that she’s aroused and wants something more from you.
This is probably the most obvious and intimate sign that the pheromones in your cologne are working – she’s looking for any excuse to touch you, whether it’s lightly brushing past you or touching your arm in conversation. There’s a good chance that if she’s touching you, she wants you to touch her, too.
That being said, know the difference between a sensual touch and a friendly touch. If she just gives you a light pat on the shoulder, it’s probably just friendly. But if her hand lingers, or she looks back over her shoulder after brushing past you, there’s more to it.
She plays with her hair
It might sound cliché, but women really do play with their hair when they want to get your attention. If the pheromones have had an effect on her, a subconsciously feminine act like twirling a strand of hair might be her way of showing it.
Looking at your lips
If you notice a woman staring at your lips during a conversation, it’s a pretty clear sign that your pheromones are having an effect on her – she’s wondering how your lips would feel on hers, or anywhere else on her body.
Focusing on her own lips
Licking her lips, biting her lips, or reapplying her lipstick are other straightforward signs that she’s interested. A woman licking her lips can be a very suggestive act, especially if she does it slowly. Reapplying her lipstick in front of you means that she wants you to focus on her lips, and can also be a suggestive act if she applies it slowly.
When a woman tilts her hips and shifts her weight to one side, it’s a sign that she’s comfortable around you. It could also mean that she wants you to pay closer attention to her feminine figure.
It might sound odd, but flared nostrils are actually a common response to arousal. Most people aren’t even aware that they’re doing it – it happens on a subconscious level.
Touching her body
Sitting down, a woman might start rubbing her thighs with her hands. Standing, she might start to rub one of her arms or her neck. Unless she’s just really cold, she’s letting you know that she wants to be touched in those places.
Crossing and uncrossing her legs
A woman who’s constantly crossing and uncrossing her legs might be trying to flirt with you, especially if she’s crossing them so that her crossed knee is facing you.
It might seem obvious, but smiling is always a good sign that your pheromone cologne is doing its job. If she smiles during a conversation, she’s clearly interested in what you have to say – if she keeps smiling at you from across the room, she wants you to come over.
Raising her eyebrows
While this isn’t always a sign that a woman is sexually attracted to you, there’s definitely a connection between a raised brow and a woman’s interest. If her eyebrows are raised and her eyelids are lowered, she could be trying to make herself look sexier for you.
Signs That She’s Not Interested
Pheromones are powerful stuff, but they don’t give you superpowers – there’s no way every single woman you come into contact with will be attracted to you. That’s why it’s also important to recognize the signs that let you know she’s not interested. These include:
- Avoiding eye contact
- Leaning away from you
- Crossed arms
- Short responses
- Keeps a straight face
Know When to Make Your Move
Women are much subtler in their attraction than men, which is why you need to be able to pick up on these cues. And remember that while pheromone colognes and perfumes might make it easier to attract women, it’s up to you to act on that attraction. Once you know that she’s interested by observing her body language, you can make your move!
