Older woman signaling she wants a guy to make a move

You should be on the lookout for the following signs in order to remain alert to the indicators that a more mature lady is open to your advances.

These are signals women can show just about anywhere but there are certain places we've found that really great for meeting older women. Try them out if you want to bring some new women into your life.

If a particular woman gives you one or more of the following, know that it’s time for you to make your move.

When to Make a Move on an Older Woman - Step By Step

Let us get you ready to successfully connect romantically with a mature woman. You can use these tips for women you met online (see our list of preferred sites for meeting older women) or out in the real world.

1 – She is making some serious eye contact with you

The move that you may have in mind will differ depending on the woman you’re talking to and your current circumstances.

But no matter the case, eye contact is the most reliable signal you can receive from a woman.

Eye contact with a friendly, curious glance is a positive sign because a woman wouldn’t be looking at you eagerly just out of politeness.

The more frequently it occurs or the longer it lasts, the more you can count on this signal.

2 – Her smile is aimed directly at you

If you’re wondering when to make a move on an older woman, pay attention to not only how she looks at you, but also her lips.

Does she smile at you as well?

It doesn’t have to be a typical or enthusiastic smile.

Sometimes, what you’ll see is a shy smile or her temporarily playing with her lips.

If she does this when she looks at you from a distance, take it as yet another positive indicator that you should make your move.

3 – She starts conversations with you

How often have women started conversations with you, where their intent was to show you their interest?

You may be surprised to know that even if you feel that it hasn’t happened often, it’s likely happened more frequently than you may currently recall.

This is because you’re likely to overlook or forget the cases when a woman you may not have been interested in started a conversation with you with a hidden purpose.

Start paying more attention to the times when older women chat you up.

It could be that a certain woman is trying to get closer to you.

And if you like her, it may be time to make a move.

4 – She is giving you some awesome compliments

When a man compliments a woman, it’s usually on her appearance.

When a woman compliments a man, it’s usually on one of his personal traits.

Both are signals of interest – especially when a woman compliments you on something physical.

Don’t hold your breath.

But if it does happen, know that you have a very keen woman on your hands.

Older women are more likely to be direct about their intentions because they have most likely learned lessons from more past regrets than their younger female counterparts.

Therefore, you may find that they hesitate less and compliment you more often.

A genuine compliment is almost always a sign that she’s interested in you, especially if she shows you other signals as well.

5 – She likes your content on social media

In this day and age, almost everyone is on social media.

You may have a particular woman that you like on one of your pages.

She may be following you or you may have her as a friend.

Pay attention to see if she likes any of your posts.

While this signal isn’t conclusive on its own, it’s more often than not a form of positive feedback that you can be happy about.

Don't start jumping to conclusions and think that this older woman has flat out fallen in love with you because you likes your pictures.

Take a realistic and rational approach, and view her positive response to your social media content as an open door to enter with some further conversation.

6 – She asks about your personal life

When a woman is interested in you, she won’t be able to help herself.

She’ll ask all sorts of personal questions about your life.

What you do for fun, what you do on the weekends, or even what type of woman you’re into.

Take note when she’s asking you personal questions, because they’re not just random and for no reason.

It’s almost always a sign that she wants you to make a move.

7 – She asks: "Do you have a girlfriend?"

To expand on the previous point, if an older woman asks if you have a girlfriend, you can consider it the ultimate personal question and a definitive sign that she’s interested in you.

There’s little more we can add, because this goes without saying.

You’re also likely interested in asking a woman the same question if you’re into her.

So if you get asked if you have a girlfriend, play it cool, and know that there’s a good chance that if you make a move on her, it should work.

8 – She has just caressed you

But if a woman touches you casually at the office, at a social event, or on a date, try not to get too excited, because it’s an excellent signal.

Especially when she reciprocates to your touches.

You may have been the one to initiate, and now she’s doing the same to you.

The forearm, the back of your hand, the shoulder, and the upper and lower back are some examples of places where you may be casually touched.

But make no mistake: it’s almost always a proven sign of her interest.

9 – She has entered your personal space

Lastly, if you’re on a date with a woman and you move closer to her – and she doesn’t move away – it’s a sign that it may be time to make your move.

Of course, be mindful of the environment and the situation.

It could be difficult to move in for a first kiss in a crowded area, or if she’s not fully comfortable with you yet.

But if she moves closer as you narrow the gap between you, such as when you sit side by side, take it as a signal that she wants you to make a move.

She may not be the one to do it herself, but she’ll do what she can to make your job easier if she’s into you.
