Do you think a married woman ismake a movein them? Before you do anything, you have to make sure your instincts are correct!
Here are 19 tell-tale signs a married woman likes you, but is hiding it.
1) You are his favorite
You may not know it, but it is obvious to your colleagues and friends that you are their favorite.
You will always be given preferential treatment. If you ask for this or that, she gives it to you immediately.
But when their peers ask for it, they have to jump through hoops to comply with the request.
You might think to yourself, no, she doesn't treat me any differently. You see her as someone who is very nice to you in the office.
But when you hear pantry rumors about this favoritism, it's pretty obvious. In this case, your coworkers may already know that they like you, even before you know it!
2) She cares about you
It's nice when someone takes care of you.
Who doesn't want to be taken care of when they're sick or comforted when they're down?
The problem, however, is the fact that a married woman does it for you.
It is not always a maternal tendency.. Most of the time it means that he likes you.
Do you remember how your ex girlfriend took care of you when you had the flu?
If you're not sure if she really likes you, try observing the people around you.
Is she considerate of other male employees?
If so, does he lie down, like he does with you?
Yes, you could check on your colleague regularly; after all, she is the boss. But if she's driving home to bring you homemade soup, she may be looking for something else.
3) She keeps complimenting you
As his bride, you are sure to receive an avalanche of compliments from your married suitor.
"I like your shoes."
"I like your duck tie."
"I love your new haircut."
that's not a secretcompliments do us good.It's their way of showing their appreciation.. And why not? Social worker Naomi Berger says appreciation is "relationship foundational," romantic, and different.
While these compliments show that you are a good person, other people will disagree. If the rest of his office hates his duck tie, this compliment could be a way of flattering him.
4) She thinks you're funny
When a married woman says you're funny, that's one of her compliments, like the ones I mentioned above.
This is especially true when you yourself know that it is not fun.
This fondness for joy is backed bylook for. Scientists figured it outA woman who often laughs at a man's jokes is more open to dating him..
So even if you're not trying to be funny, a married woman who likes you will laugh at everything you say.
5) She is interested in your love life.
When a married woman keeps asking about your life, especially your relationships, it's a sign that she likes you.
When you like someone, you want to know everything about them.
However, it is more than just a curiosity.
According to psychologist Dr. Noam Shpancer,It's about learning about yours.Competence.
After all, this lady wants to become your partner. She wants to know how she compares to any girl you like.
6) Criticize your competition
A married woman who likes you will try to get your attention. And if he sees you staring at another lady, you better be prepared for the criticism that will come later.
Going back to Dr. Shpancer's article, this attitude goes back to the theory of evolution. While men diffuse competition by criticizing each other's physique and financial status,Women tend to go after the looks and character of their competitors..
So if this married woman only has bad things to say about all the girls you date, don't listen to her right away. She's probably trying to get you away from your boyfriend.
7) She keeps joking that she likes you
The jokes are half intended, they say. There is a grain of truth in every joke.
And if he jokes about liking you, that's probably a sign that he likes you.
It is a widespread belief among psychologists, including the respected Sigmund Freud. He even likened jokes to truths wrapped in a smile.
not fromArticle, author William Berry explained how Freud linked jokes to two purposes. One is aggression or sarcasm, the otherreveal an unconscious desire. For you it is the last.
It could also be his passive-aggressive way of telling you that he likes you.. You may not be aware of this, so she tries to tell you, albeit indirectly.
8) She is mom about her marriage.
There is no doubt that he talks to you a lot. But in all these cases, she has never heard from her husband.
When you start asking questions, she gives little to no answers.
Instead, you continue to do what you normally do. She will compliment you or ask you about your love life. She gets to criticize the girl you're dating.
It is clear why he does this.You want it to look like you're available, even when you're not.. Who knows? you can give in to thatyour charmssooner or later (but you shouldn't).
9) She talks to you "different"
When he talks to his office colleagues, he has a stern and authoritative voice. But when he talks to you, he's back to that sexy baby voice.
AsArticlehe described this striking tone as "a mix of high pitch, singing, and small talk".
As for why women do this in front of men they like, self-esteem coach Victoria Browne has this explanation:
"When it's made for a baby, the mother side of a woman is trying to make a connection."
In addition, he says that it is a way of "appearing to be vulnerable, consciously or unconsciously, (needs) the care of the man."
Psychotherapist Yuko Nippoda repeats the same thoughts.
"He projects his image into her voice as she thinks (probably subconsciously) that this will make the man feel like he's trying to protect her."
In short, Professor Sarah Niblock describes this change in tone as a way of "using our voice to get attention."
As you can see, a change in intonation is a sign that this married woman wants you to take care of her, probably in a romantic way.
10) She is always trying to strike up a conversation with you
You speak generously to him, and why not? You need; They work together.
But if he often tries to push the boundaries of professional communication, it's a sign that he probably likes you.
Think about it: You don't need to dedicate yourself to a particular project because:
- it's for next month, and
- It is the weekend
Still, he's using this project as an excuse to talk to you.
A married woman not only initiates unnecessary conversations, but often does so at inopportune moments.. When she "watches" every midnight, it's obvious that she's sneaking around behind her husband's back.
11) She always looks at you
It's all our fault. We tend to look at the people we care about. In other words, we are happy to review them.
When looking is aphysiological sign that we like someone, it can mean much more.
afterpsychology article todayEye contact can indicate arousal.
While staring can make some people uncomfortable, some interpret this stare as a "come here" look.
If possible, try to take a look at your pupils. If they're stretched out, that's another sign that he likes you.
12) She gets weird with you
it's not aloneMen who look weird with the girl they like. Women too, married or not!

- She's so unsure of what to do that she does random things like pat her key chain.
- She tries to get him to like the same things that you like.
- She accidentally reveals that she knows more about you (than you told her).
13) She can't help but blush around you
If a married woman can't help but blush when the two of you interact, that's another sign that she likes you.
Blush, for example, is a sign of confidence, just like the weird stuff I mentioned above. When it happens on the cheeks, it's the body's response to a social threat.
Physically, the flushing happens due to an adrenaline rush. Hormones affect the nervous system, causing the vessels in the skin to dilate.
While blush usually appears on the cheeks, it can also appear anywhere on the body, especially the one that gets a lot of attention.
For experts, blushing is one of the best ways to tell if someone likes you. It is an honest reaction of the body.
Unlike many of the characters here, there's nothing he can do to hide it, even if he tries to cover his face.

For example, he will try to pat you on the shoulder and pet you for a "job well done."

If you want to be 100% sure about this sign, try observing how he interacts with other men. Does she caress or touch other guys the same way she does you? If not, then it's obvious: he really likes you.
17) She is a prankster

The reason he's making fun of you is obvious: he likes you and he wants to like you. She wants to see how much you'll want her.
On the other hand, it could be her way of gaining control: a chance to become desirable again. Maybe your man isn't doing enough to make you feel as attractive as he used to.
If you are unfortunate enough to fall for his charms, you will feel confused, frustrated, and even embarrassed. You have to be careful with this guy.Married woman, since you will only end up on the losing end.

You're talking about deadlines and suddenly she steers the discussion to the most wacky thing she's ever done.
Obviously, talking dirty is one of his ways of turning you on.
It is also a slip, although in this case it seems intentional. He says these things because he thinks so!
