What are some signs that a woman likes you as more than just a friend?
I'm pretty new to being single, and I just never really learned how to hit on / experienced being hit on by women. I'm a shy, yet somewhat physically intimidating guy, and I constantly seem to misread signals from women; so I just go from my default "they're not interested" mentality. Can anyone out there enlighten me as to what may or may not be signs that a woman is interested in me?
There are several 'RED' flags to look for. Catching them staring at you after you have stopped talking, touching you while you are talking, talking to you in a different tone and attitude than she talks to other people. There are several signs. Another is your gut feeling. At times you will just know, there is no hiding it. Sometimes friends will notice her attraction to you before you do and voice their opinion. Human instinct also goes a long way.
That's a big question. Maybe I can't answer it. All women are different. But generally speaking, alpha males tend to be those who are very polite, confident, and funny. My best advice is that when you talk to people, always look them in the eye--if you don't already do that. It sounds stupid, but it's very important. Make a conscious effort to do this and to be polite by saying things like, "Good morning", "Good bye" or "How are you?" I'd say it to everyone you see. Avoid broken phrases like, "what's up?", "see ya", and "hey". If a conversation ensues, smile if appropriate and speak slowly, be sincere, and look in the eyes. Feel free to be self-effacing, since those are the only types of jokes that don't offend anyone else. Jokes break tension. From a guy's perspective (and I may be dead wrong) I find that women's minds work quickly and they are constantly analyzing themselves and yourself during a conversation. Maybe men do that too, who knows?--I know I can't do it. Make sure you are always honest; but that's easy. If you find yourself talking to someone for a long time, you will have to run the gambit and informally ask her out (eye contact!) before wasting too much of her time--but ask politely without much pressure. The key thing is that if she says no, she may seriously regret it a few hours later and torment herself for turning down your offer of a light date. So it's best to remain polite and to be your best self the next time you see her. If you have another conversational encounter, feel free to ask her out again and see what she says. If she says no again, just her let be the one to ask next time if she ever does. That's really the only way of knowing: indirectly and informally asking. Reading body language can work, but some women are shy and unknowingly give off negative signals.
Women often say they like "shy" guys, but I think what they mean by this is that they actually prefer polite guys or guys who have personal hobbies and who are not overly-cocky or encumbered by a thousand buddies.
Women are mysterious creatures from another dimension and no man is qualified to speak about them. Having said that...if she plants a wet one on your lips...it could be a sign that she likes you - either that, or she was just borrowing some of your lip balm. :0)

FOR BOTH PARTIES INTERESTED... Guys, what this comes down to is that women look to men to help them feel better about themselves through the giving of female support. When a man fails to say and do the right things at the right times, women FALSELY conclude that he must not care that much and...

Can a man and a woman truly be just friendsI saw a video recently, where someone went out filming young men and women, asking this question. Without fail, all the girls answered yes and the boys answered no. However, when the girls were asked if their male friends would want to be intimate with...
