What Does It Mean When A Girl Looks At You Then Looks Away?

When a girl looks at you then looks away, what doesn’t it mean?

Can you consider it as a sign of interest? Or should you consider it as a sign of indifference?

That’s what we’re going to see in this post.

As you’ll see, there are different ways a girl can break eye contact. As well as other elements of her non-verbal language to take into account when she does it.

Depending on the way she breaks eye contact (and some other subtleties listed below), its meaning can be completely different.

➡️ If you haven’t done so yet: take a look at this article in which I show you how you can master women in a way that will turn them on.

In other words, how to dominate women to make them wet with desire.

And NOT just in bed: you’re going to implement these small actions in other contexts and environments, be it after an approach, on a date, at a party, in your everyday life with your girlfriend or wife (or with your ex), and more… so that the woman you like sees you as a powerful dominant male who is able to satisfy her deepest desires and take her to seventh heaven.

...which is what is going to make her want to sleep with you…and even chase you.

Let’s dive right it.

How long does she hold eye contact before looking away?

This is the first question you need to ask yourself to properly interpret this behavior.

Here, there are two possibilities:

1. Does she look away after looking at you for a long time?

In other words, does she look away after looking at you for one second or more?

If this woman looked at you for a long time before looking away, chances are that she likes you. Or at least that she’s curious about you (and therefore not indifferent to you).

An indifferent woman would not hold your gaze in this way (unless she’s speaking to you, as part of a conversation).

Her prolonged gaze is a sign that she’s interested in you.

Why does she look away when I look at her?

She chooses to break eye contact as to not make things awkward or come across as a girl who is all over you (or because she’s intimidated).

Either way, if she gave you a prolonged look before looking away, she is most likely interested in you.

She doesn’t necessarily want to have sex with you or to start a relationship with you right away, but there’s something about that attracts her.

2. Does she look away immediately, as if by reflex?

Second possibility: she looks away as soon as your eyes meet.

In this case, she may be interested or not interested, depending on the situation.

Let’s take a look at the two possible situations you can encounter:

👉 Your eyes met by accident:

She didn’t plan to look at you, but her gaze landed on you.

Your eyes meets almost at the same time and she looks away as quickly as possible so you don’t get any ideas.

She doesn’t want you to think that she likes you (either because she’s already in a relationship, or because she’s frequently approached by annoying guys and as a result doesn’t want you to approach her, or because she considers you as a low value guy and wants to discourage you from taking a chance with her, or because she’s simply afraid of making eye contact with strangers).

Note: that being said, if a woman looks away quickly after making eye contact, it shouldn’t discourage you from approaching her if you find her attractive (maybe she’s just not a kind of girl who holds eye contact with strangers, and it may be enough that you approach her properly for her to be suddenly interested).

👉 She was discreetly watching you:

She was already looking at you before you laid eyes on her.

You catch her looking at you, she immediately pulls herself together by looking away.

Either she was observing you without any ulterior motive (maybe she was just staring blankly into space, without really looking at you), or…she was watching you.

If she was just staring blankly into space (and thus not really looking at you), she looks away as soon as your eyes meet so that you don’t get the wrong idea (she doesn’t want you to believe that she was checking you out).

If she actually was checking you out, she looks away so that she doesn’t come across as a girl who is all over you (or as a female in heat who is checking men out).

In the latter case, she’s probably interested but doesn’t want to look like an easy girl.

What does she do after she breaking eye contact (or while she’s looking at you)?

That’s the second question you need to ask yourself in order to interpret her behavior properly.

It has to do with everything around her look.

The more of the gestures listed below you spot, the more interested in you this woman is.

👉 Does she smile?

If she smiles after looking away (or while she’s looking at you), she definitely feels good about you.

Your look has given her positive emotions.

She may also want to appear welcoming in order to encourage you to approach her, so she smiles.

You guess it: she’s most likely interested.

If on the other hand she looks annoyed or pissed when she looks away, it could be her way of telling you that she doesn’t want you to come and talk to her (or a way of discouraging as many guys as possible from doing so, so that she’s only approached by the most solid, courageous and confident men).

👉 Does she look at you again afterwards?

If after looking away she looks at you again, you can see it as a big sign of interest.

She may have looked away by reflex the first time, but then realized that she liked what she looked at (you). Or at least that she might like it.

So she looks at you again to confirm her first impression.

If her first impression is confirmed, she may decide to hold eye contact to indicate to you that she’s interested, and thus encourage you to come and talk to her.

When a girl looks at you repeatedly, it’s a pretty good sign that she’s expecting something from you.

👉 Does she bite her lips?

If she bites her lower lip right after looking at you, it’s probably because she feels sexually attracted to you.

Especially if she does it while looking down.

👉 Does she arrange her hair?

Any action intended to make herself look more beautiful (arranging her hair, readjusting her clothing, sitting more upright, standing up straight…) after meeting your gaze is a sign that she wants you to see her in her best light.

And therefore that she probably considers you as a potential sexual (and love) partner.

Even though it might happen, indifferent women don’t bother looking at their best for men they don’t care about.

In which direction does she look away?

That’s the third question you should yourself in order to properly interpret the look of this woman.

Answering this question isn’t as important as the two others, but it may give you additional information about how this woman perceives you.

👉 Downward?

If she looks away by lowering her eyes, it means that she perceives you as superior to her.
At least subconsciously.

This is a signal of submission. And this is a very good thing if you plan to take things to the next level with her.

It means that she already sees you as a high value guy (at least of higher value or higher status than her).

And guess what: since women are hypergamous by nature, they naturally seek to pair up with men they perceive as being of higher status than themselves.

So you start in good position.

👉 Or to the side?

If she looks away looking to the side, it means she sees you as equal or inferior than her.
At least subconsciously.

Don’t think of it as a negative sign. It’s neutral.

It doesn’t mean that this girl isn’t attracted (or cannot be).

It just means that she probably doesn’t see you as superior to her. Or that she’s very confident. Or that she wants to play the decider.
