For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
Men want a woman who is upfront and doesn't play games. They want to know how you feel about them without having to guess. Men aren't very good at guessing. Is it possible to show that you're interested in someone without coming off as just another thirsty chick?
The answer to that is simple, yes. Although in this day in age there seems to be a fine line between the two, it still is very possible to be up front without being thirsty. The key is to be upfront yet subtle. Seems like an oxymoron huh? Well, it's not. A little goes a long way.
Let's think about the differences between interest and thirst. Interest means that you would like to carry on some type of relationship with someone, usually on an emotional level. Basically, you are interested in getting to know that person better and becoming more than just friends. Thirst means that you are highly attracted to someone, usually on a physical level and would like to peruse their pants if the time allowed. Constantly telling someone you want to jump their bones makes them think that you're only into them based on physical attraction, therefore leading them to believe that you are thirsty. In order to be considered thirsty there has to be an exaggerated level of interest. Complimenting someone or telling them once in a while that you would like to get with them is not thirst. Doing it several times a day, hour or every time you see them is.
If you don't want someone to mistake your interest for thirst make sure that they know that your attraction isn't just to their physical, but also their mental. Make sure that they are aware of the fact that you would like to build something with them and not just jump in the sack. The more you show that you're willing to invest time into growing with someone, the least likely they'll accuse you of having foul intentions.
