- What does it means to lead someone on?
- Why would someone lead you on?
- How do you know if a girl is eyeing you?
To “lead someone on” means to give another the impression they will receive something in return for their time or money. For example, a man may lead a woman to believe he loves and cares for her for his own personal benefit.
The reasons that people lead others on most often are: The ‘leader-on’ is afraid or otherwise unwilling to reject the other person. Perhaps they sense that the other person is sensitive, and legitimately worry that their rejection may hurt them badly.
If you catch someone’s eye and they open up towards you, they’re definitely interested. You may also see some mirroring, if you make a gesture when you catch her eye – a wave or an eyebrow-flash – then that’s a sign of interest and an indicator that you should go over and introduce yourself.
