Understanding women isn’t easy, at least for beginners. Some women will give you signs of affection and wait for you to take action. While some others will flirt with you, or everybody, and get mad if you take action (and maybe file a harassment case against you). So, because understanding her body language is very tricky and important at the same time, we decided to make a series on the common touches women do to men and what they mean. And today’s article is all about what it means when a woman touches your chest.
At first, you might imagine that a woman touching your chest instantly means she's flirting with you. But there are some cases when it's accidental or perhaps just friendly. As with all body language signs, you should consider the context of her touching you. That way, you can act accordingly. And if she did intend to flirt with you, then at least you know that the ball's in your court!
If a woman touches your chest then this means she thinks she’s close enough to be in your personal space - unless you’re coming hard on her and she’s pushing you away of course. Still, don’t get fooled by the gesture alone. She can touch your chest and still think of you as a friend.
To judge it, however, you must look at the bigger picture, as well as the way she touches you before jumping to conclusions and shooting yourself in the foot. That's why knowing how to read a woman's body language is helpful.
Yes, and no. Some women flirt because they like you and want you to take action, she may even want you to kiss her. But some flirt just because they like the attention or like keeping men confused. Understanding who you’re dealing with may be difficult, especially if she’s new to you. But with enough experience, which any man should build, you will be able to judge her in just a few minutes.
Ok. Friends don’t rub chests except for very rare situations. So, she’s very likely flirting with you in this case.
This is another sign of intimacy and closeness. Women generally won't touch your neck unless they're flirting with you and are comfortable with your touch. But as always, there are cases when a woman might touch your neck without intending to flirt with you.
This one can be misleading cause it’s common and may trick you into thinking she's flirting with you. We covered this in-depth in one of our guides about what it means when a woman touches you on the shoulder.
Well, I love this one because it’s very rare for strangers to do it (unless they’re very social). Like I said earlier, stepping into your personal space means she thinks you’re close. How close? Close enough to kiss her? It all depends on the context.
When a woman touches your chest, it's pretty likely she's flirting. But what about your back? Your back has a lot of areas a woman can touch. There's a huge difference between a woman touching you right at the base of your neck and touching you right above your waistband. Consider these before you think she's flirting with you.
Plenty of women are very touchy-feely. Some of them just prefer to touch people to prove a point, to establish rapport or just because they're the type to use their hands when talking. When a woman touches your chest, it doesn't instantly mean she's flirting with you, though it's extremely likely that she is. So when you put her touches into context and you also combine them with the signs that she's interested in you, you can gauge if you should flirt back.
Remember, it's better to have a variety of different signals from her that show she's into you. So when a woman touches your chest and she also flirts with you (whether with her words or body language), that's when you can assume that you have the go signal to flirt back.
