The Meaning of DTF: Sneaky Ways to Tell If She’s Feeling It

You’ve probably heard this phrase tossed around before as it relates to someone’s sexual status, but what is the meaning of DTF? Read on to find out!

meaning of DTF

I remember watching Superbad, when Seth Rogan’s character said, “She’s DTF—down to f*ck, man. P and vagi, she wants to f*ck, man!” That’s when it started. After that, DTF could be heard everywhere— in the club, in class, at the library. But what, exactly, is the meaning of DTF? After all, isn’t everyone down to f*ck? Sex is a natural act and at the end of the day, aren’t we all ready to have sex after we reach a certain point in our lives?

Here’s where DTF is different. While the meaning of DTF seems pretty clear, it typically only refers to those who are ready to have sex at the earliest opportunity. As in, they want to f*ck now. Right now. Right this instant. And that “someone” is usually directed towards women. So, it’s basically a phrase that men use to identify which woman probably wants to have sex with them.

How do you know when she’s DTF?

Fair enough. So how can you tell if someone is DTF? Well, here are some helpful signs to look out for when figuring out if someone you’re interested in is DTF. Oh, but just because she’s DTF doesn’t mean she’ll want to have sex with you in particular. But, by seeing the signs, you may be able to increase your chances and figure out which girl is interested in you. [Read: 12 clues to spot horny women and easy ways to take one home instantly]

#1 She says it. These are rare occasions, but they could happen. If this does occur, pinch yourself and then take the opportunity. There are some women who, when they know what they want, they go and get it. If you’re the one they choose, then you’re a lucky man. So if she walks up to you, pulls you in close, and whispers in your ear, “I want you inside me,” this is not a test. I repeat, this is not a test. Leave that club with her and never look back.

#2 Is alcohol involved? Now, getting a girl drunk is not the answer if you’re horny. Alcohol simply acts as a way to lower your inhibitions and allow yourself to approach a girl if you tend to tense up and get nervous. If you’re at a club, alcohol will most likely be involved, and most of the women there will have had at least a drink. That means you’ll probably have an easier time socially interacting with them.

This can be a pro and a con. If she’s drinking too much, just move on to another girl. Don’t be that guy who preys on drunk girls. If she’s just had one drink, then you should engage in conversation with her. Chances are, you’ll be able to pick up on whether or not she’s DTF.

#3 She reacts to eye contact. They say that eyes are the windows to the soul… and apparently, the vagina. Never underestimate body language. Eye contact can tell you everything you need to figure out if you’re wasting your time or not. Is she avoiding eye contact? Not looking at you when you speak? Yeah, those aren’t signs of someone who wants you in their pants.

If the woman is smiling, laughing, licking her lips, and has a softened facial expression, then you’re in the safe lane and should continue the conversation. If you’re not getting a friendly reaction, she’s simply not interested. [Read: 10 subtle eye contact flirting moves that always work]

#4 She isn’t attached to her friends. A woman will be more DTF if she’s not guarding or being guarded by her friends. Most women will go out with their friends, but the difference is how she reacts to them. Is she basically holding her friend’s hands when she’s out? That’s a red flag. If she doesn’t leave her friend’s side, it’s probably not going to happen. However, if you see a woman go to the club and she’s walking around by herself, scoping the scene, then she may even be on the prowl herself.

#5 The way she moves. If you’re drinking your beer while watching the dance floor, pay attention to the way women move. If you see a girl who’s jumping around like a rabbit on cocaine, well, she’s probably on cocaine and she will probably not be DTF. Those girls are hyper—moving around everywhere, not paying attention to anything that requires two minutes of focus. Stay away from them. It’s a lot of work, and you probably won’t even learn their name. You need to approach someone who can have a conversation with you and who’s a little calmer. So, if she’s doing a casual sway, moving her body sensually, then you may want to just shimmy your way over to her. [Read: 15 body language cues a girl gives away if she likes you]

#6 Her response to physical touch. Does she stiffen up when you casually touch her shoulder? Yeah, that’s not a good sign. A girl who’s DTF is open to physical contact—on a non-sexual scale. If she’s freezing up when you accidentally brush her arm or touch her leg, then why would you expect her to be open to hopping into bed with you?

So before you try to rub her down with your meaty paws, see how the conversation goes and what her body language is like towards you. If she touches you, then you can respectfully touch her back and see how she reacts. And then take it from there. [Read: 16 nonsexual touches to feel connected and loved]

#7 She makes an effort to talk to you. Say you meet a girl at the club that night, and the next day, she’s texting you. This is a clear sign that she’s interested. Women don’t waste their time talking to men they’re not interested in, especially if they just met them. So if she’s the one continuing the conversation via text and suggesting to meet up, then she’s probably DTF. Don’t be overly aggressive over text, though. Keep it casual and go with the flow.

#8 She’s not on her phone. Nowadays, everyone is on their phone, busy texting people who are sitting on their couch at home. If a woman isn’t on her phone and is living in the moment and paying attention to what’s happening around her, she’s probably interested in meeting someone who isn’t a picture on Tinder. That’s a great sign. [Read: How to talk to a girl and look smooth doing it!]

So, focus on the women who are actually in tune with their surroundings, because they’ve probably spotted you ten minutes ago while you were standing at the bar. Stop wasting time and make your way to her now, because once she’s on her phone, you’ve lost her.
