Say you’re at the club and you spot a woman you’d really like to get to know, but you can’t tell if she’s single. You risk looking foolish or getting shot down right away if she isn’t, so how can you tell if she’s unattached so you can avoid the drama and embarrassment? Fortunately, there are a lot of ways to find out if a woman is single. When you’re partying at the best clubs in San Diego, these tips can help you out with signs to look for and hints that tell you she’s available.
Look for a Ring
If she’s wearing a ring, that’s an obvious clue she may not be available. If the ring is on the fourth finger of her left hand (where a wedding ring is usually worn), you can be pretty sure she’s married. Be cautious, though: for various reasons, some married women don’t always wear their rings, so don’t automatically assume a woman without a ring is single.
Watch How She Interacts with Other People
If you see a woman in the club who isn’t talking to many people or doesn’t go out on the dance floor, it may be because she isn’t single and she doesn’t want to send the wrong signals. She also may simply want to relax and enjoy having a drink and doing some people watching by herself. On the other hand, if she appears to be open to chatting and dancing with lots of other people, there’s a good chance she’s single.
Make Eye Contact
Casually look over at her and try to catch her eye. If she maintains eye contact, it may be a sign you’ve caught her attention and she’s flirting with you. If she smiles while continuing to maintain eye contact, that could be a clear invitation for you to come over and talk to her. If she looks away or you have any doubt about whether she looked back at you out of sheer coincidence, don’t keep staring at her. That could send a seriously creepy vibe you don’t intend.
Start a Casual Conversation
If you’ve made eye contact and she seems open to more interaction, go over and start a casual conversation. Think of yourself as a kind of social explorer who enjoys meeting all kinds of people, including those who are already in relationships. Chat about your favorite music or hobbies. Ask her what she has going on over the weekend. She might immediately signal she’s not single by telling you about her plans with her significant other.
Ask Her to Dance or Offer to Buy Her a Drink
Ask her if she’d like to dance or offer to buy another round of what she’s drinking. If she’s not single, she may hesitate, or she might say, “Thanks, but I’m just waiting for someone.” If she says yes, you could casually ask, “Are you sure your boyfriend (or girlfriend) won’t mind?” She might laugh if she’s single. If she isn’t, she’ll appreciate how considerate and respectful you are. Either way, you’ll make a good impression.
Pay Attention to Her Body Language
If you’re chatting and she doesn’t maintain eye contact or leans back with her arms crossed, she may not be interested in continuing the conversation. But if she leans toward you and touches your arm or leg while you’re talking, it’s a good sign she’s unattached and in the mood to get to know you better.
Be an Attentive Listener
Listen to her carefully. If she is quite talkative, she’s probably friendly and open, and she may have a busy schedule because she’s single. For instance, if she tells you she takes cooking classes, hikes frequently, and goes to the gym every day but she never brings up a significant other, chances are she’s single.
Be Polite & Casual
Be cool and respectful. If you come on too strong, she could be turned off and not tell you whether she’s single or not. You could say something like “I was just wondering …” and ask if you could get her number. Take some time to establish a rapport with her before you ask. She could be put off if you just inquire about her relationship status without getting to know her at least a little bit first.
