One Redditor commented, “Lot of eye contact.”

Another added, “Serious eye contact for me. Like when they would rather admire you than look anywhere else, it just makes it so obvious.”

Finally, another user said, “When it’s more uncomfortable to look away from each other than to look at each other.”

A user suggested, “When she tells me she is upset because I am not picking up the signals.”

A second Redditor added, “She laughs at all your jokes. Touches your arm. Finds reasons to hang around you. (but yeah…in the end, she’s gonna hafta hit you in the face with it before you can be totally sure).”

A third Redditor said, “They glance at your mouth while talking to you.”

“Unsolicited touching,” and then added, “I meant unsolicited, but welcomed touching, lol.”

To which another Redditor added, “You both try to touch each other at any opportunity.”

“For me, a lot of close physical contact. Not just hugs but letting my hands linger on their waist or gently catching their hand in mine wherever the opportunity arises. I guess those are more my signals than mutual signs.”

Feel It

A Redditor added, “You feel the tension. You’ll know when it happens.”

To which another user replied, “It is kinda hard to put into words, but as a woman, I can definitely feel it.”
A third user said, “You kinda just feel it? Idk, usually, when you stare longingly into each other’s eyes. Not just friendly eye contact, like they are trying to stare into your soul.”
