Situation: I have a pretty boy friend, when he is doing well he cleans up. When he doesn’t he is awkward, he needs attention from girls to be successful. This guy goes through a lot of girls. He tends mess around with a lot of girls.
We went down to my favorite little bar. Played some pool. A girl situated herself so she was closer to us. At some point this girl ended up talking to “Pretty Boy” while we were playing. I watched her talk to him, she was attracted to him but holding back. Her toes on her right foot were pointed at him. She was waiting for some friends.
It was easy to tell there was an attraction to him. She slowly started by chatting, she straightened her appearance starting with her coat. An occasional touch/adjustment to the hair, she was preening. You guys have all seen these cues but likely overlooked them because of how subtle they are.
At this point there bodies were neutral, they stood side by side while his body seemed to be facing hers a bit more. He was showing her more attraction than she was showing him. We were playing pool so he was forced to step away here and there. You could see she stood more awkward when he walked away.
As the conversation progressed their bodies began to face each other more. They grew closer and the space was slowly closing. There was an occasional touch to the arm, but not much reaction from her. You guys have all met this girl, a girl that didn’t react positively or negatively, well no reaction is a positive reaction. If she stiffens up you may need to back up to make her more comfortable. This is a fear reaction she is freezing. She didn’t acknowledge or deny the touch. It seemed as if she was very comfortable with him but that she was holding back.
They began to face each other more and more, however she was a bit reserve so as they faced each other the distance opened up a bit. I noticed when she got a call she made herself less available. She had increased the distance. You should always pay attention if you move toward a girl and she moves away you probably need to let her become more comfortable with you. She happened to be doing this.
Her body started to point away, she wasn’t as engaged after she received the call. She was still preening here and there. There was an occasional adjustment of her coat and jewelry, she adjusted her necklace most often. You could see her interest, but you could see she wasn’t quite available.
Later I realized why she was so reserve. I seen her friends arrive. She was waiting for her male friends. I seen she was attracted to her friend, I happen to know him, small world. When they came we chatted for a minute. Made some arrangements to meet at the next bar. We caught up later but she was stuck on that kid when we met up later. The moment had passed as both Pretty Boy and I could sense.
