If you truly knew the number of times women have lobbed serious hints in the direction of their objects of desire...

...only to have them sail right over the guy's head...

Oh, it's enough to make you cry.

Tonight I discuss the ways in which women often signal their interest in men - the top 12 signs you have to look for!


Here is the massive post on Askreddit full of these tales of woe

And here is Matt Savage's blog entry about his experience

Please feel free to add your own tale of missed glory in the comments :D

    I'm sure I'm not innocent myself given how much I "miss the forest for the trees" in general when I'm not focusing on something, but even I have to admit that some of those examples of guys missing hints women were sending them were pretty bad. In a few cases I probably would've ended up cringing at my past self every time I recalled the incident for many years to come if it had been me.

    I don't really recall any obvious cases like your examples, but, for all I know, maybe I HAVE missed signals from women without ever realizing that there was something I missed numerous times in the past. That may be for the best, though, since I have enough things to cringe at my past self about without it.

    About the only thing I can think of is that there was one time my mom and I were at a restaurant and, after the waitress took our order and left, my mom said she thought the waitress seemed romantically interested in me. I responded that she was definitely "bubbly" and friendly, but it didn't seem to be any kind of special reaction to me specifically. Naturally there were none of the blatant signals you mentioned, but most of your examples would've been impossible or inappropriate since she was at work. To this day, I really don't know whether my mom's impression or mine was correct, but part of me does wish I'd had the guts to just ask the waitress directly and settle the matter.

      If your mom (ie a woman) said that another woman was interested, you can believe her :P

    I experienced the panty one you mentioned I agree I'm a noob but who do I follow up on that ,because she's a free spirit kind of person so I couldn't tell what was happening at the moment now I'm sad

    • A Eve on 2016-06-17 21:01:16 (UTC)

      aww...well now you know what to look out for next time :D

    So, you see why I wear glasses... blinded to all

    There was a girl, a few years back, who would randomly come over, because her mom was being mean, or she felt like getting out of the house, and this happened over the span of several months, she actually once wanted to change in my bed room and said 'don't peek'. I kid you not. She also took several showers in my house, with the door open....it wasn't that I didn't read the signs, I could read them fine, it was me being afraid that i wasn't going to be good enough for her. She actually did all the things you mentioned, and more. I'm so mad at myself! Grrr!!

    • A Eve on 2016-05-21 23:09:46 (UTC)

      haha well at least now you know!

  • MadWithLust on 2015-11-28 22:07:52 (UTC)

    Whew, I'm relieved. I haven't missed anything that obvious...but I haven't had any opportunities that obvious either... :( A girl stripping down to her panties and snuggling under my blanket sounds so wonderful...

    There was this one time I did spend a night in a girl's room. I think I could have sealed the deal but she and I were both virgins and I felt like I would have been pressuring her for sex. But I wonder now if I missed any hints that she wanted me to be her first...oh that would have been so awesome to give ourselves to each other...

    • A Eve on 2015-11-29 13:33:00 (UTC)

      Awww...well don't mistake 'missed signals' for times when it just wasn't 'right' for either of you. That happens too, naturally, and there's nothing wrong with that. I just wanted to point out times when even interest was completely missed out on.

    Yet another great episode of Under the Covers.

    Counterpoint: some of those stories may have been of men who weren't interested in the woman and were feigning ignorance to avoid an awkward situation!

    Lots of laughs listening to this. Some sorrow too. I'm reminded of some women whos feelings I likely hurt because of my own emotional thickheadedness. To Cheryl, Dori, Sarah, Anna, Emily and that girl who kissed me on the dancefloor centuries ago: I'm sorry.

    I'm married now, so at least I can say I got it right with the most important girl!

      aww, well that's good to hear! :D

    I have a female friend who I believe I have burned all bridges with when it comes to sex. Several things come to mind...
    I described my fascination with her body, and her butt, to a friend over messenger. I accidentally sent several of these messages to her messenger window instead! She said she didn't mind and felt rather flattered.
    She and I went shopping some months later, and she started looking at tight yoga pants at a clothing store, holding them up in front and behind her and talking about them.
    Later on she had her shower and bathroom in her apartment renovated. She asked if she could come to my place and use my shower. She also said she would probably spend the night since I live quite a ways away.
    I thought it must be frustrating to not have the proper shower facilities, and obliged.
    Later on, I started to add up these things in my head, and felt like a complete moron. I talked to a few friends, male and female, and they said the same thing. She wants to get closer to me!
    So then I fucked it all up, by emailing her and explaining my feelings and mixed emotions over her alleged advances... We have hung out a few times since then, but the topic of the email or the whole situation never comes up. I remain clueless :o

    #13) If she makes amazing audios where she worships your cock...

  • Jandrusel on 2015-11-15 21:11:54 (UTC)

    Well, this will certainly be useful in the future. I'm not a smart man when it comes to women. Truly, I'm not as anxious and shy as I was during my teenage years, and I can hold conversations with any woman. But when it comes to dating and intimacy, I'm total newbie.

    However, I'm not ashamed of my inexperience. That's life how goes; some go slower or faster, but everyone has its own path. As always Eve, you're amazing. These series are really informative and fun to listen. Sometimes, I even prefer them to your sexual audios. That's how much I love them.

    Some of these stories on Reddit are really painful to read. Poor guys! Also, from a guy's POV. sometimes it's difficult to approach a woman with dating intentions. Either you don't wanna risk the friendship or you don't want to being noticed as a 'desperate', etc.

    Sorry for my ramblings, Eve. Thanks again.


    • A Eve on 2015-11-16 23:36:49 (UTC)

      Aww thank you! Don't worry, I love rambling!

      I know it's difficult to approach women, I totally sympathize. Which is why I think guys should focus more of their attention on women who already like you - women who are showing interest in their own way. It takes some of the anxiety away - certainly it's better than going up to a woman 'cold' and hoping you'll charm her. :D
