There is no one giveaway to whether or not a woman is single, especially when even some married women flirt with guys. So if you don’t want to come right out and ask if she’s romantically involved or not, here are 5 hints to help you determine if she’s available:
1. Look at her ring finger on the left hand
The first and obvious clue is to check for an engagement or wedding band. If there is a band, a ring of any kind or a tan line where a ring usually is, she’s more than likely not available. If there is no ring or tan lines on that particular finger, then you can be pretty sure she’s not married; however, she may be dating someone.
2. She talks to different guys
If you observe her talking to many guys, it may mean that she’s single, open to conversation and open to romantic possibilities.
3. She looks at other couples with envy and sadness
If you’re observing her from afar and you notice her looking at other couples with envy and/or sadness, she probably doesn’t have a man to come home to. That’s where you come in.
4. She’s overly talkative with you
Women who are taken tend to be less friendly with other men and give off a more standoffish attitude when approached. If you start talking to a woman and she does things like making intense eye contact with you, touches your arm or leg subtly and tells you in one conversation that she has a dog named Chip, likes to cook and goes to the yoga classes every week, chances are that she’s single.
5. She’s always out with her girlfriends
Unavailable women still go out and have fun with their girlfriends, but they still make time for the men in their lives. If you see the same woman out with her friends all the time at the same bar, chances are she’s single.
