The Realist agony auntI would have to say that the smile and the way your eyes look when both of your eyes meet. That can be a dead give away and tends to be the case in a bar setting when verbal comunication is limited.

Also gentle touches are a good signal although it is usually the girl brushing the guys shoulder and not really the other way around.

This is verified as being by the original poster of the question

No not really. I was just wondering if there is a universal language of attraction

In response to blonde30s, not every person who likes you will ask you out straight. I had an ex bf who I ASKED out and he told me that he was absolutely petrified to ask me out but really wanted to be together.

There are certain body language cues that indicate if someone is attracted to you, not all are to be read into, but on the whole, they're fairly reliable (you have to pay close attention though)

~ When you're chatting, he may absent mindedly lean closer towards you or direct themselves towards you e.g: sitting side by side, he'll be leaning left/right (unless of course you're in an uber loud bar and can't hear each other without screaming ^^ )

~ Quite often, if he's nearby (ish - you've both got each other in sight) regardless of who he's talking to, his feet will be pointing in your general direction - don't take this too literally though. It does hold a little truth, but he may just stand a little weirdly.

~ If you're talking (or maybe not necessarily anywhere near each other) you are both quite likely to mirror each other's body language, e.g: you fold your arms, he'll then fold his arms.

And then of course, that old favourite; he can't keep his eyes off you :)

I don't claim to be an expert on this, so I'd recommend you read a few body language books, there are some good ones kicking about. Just bear in mind, if he does these things once and you notice, it may just be a coincidence. I've tried to kid myself into thinking a guy likes me purely because of body language and it wasn't actually the case - so use any B.L knowledge with caution.

Good luck if you have a certain guy in mind!

I think the most obvious sign if they don't already know you is a smile, a greeting like: Hello, goodmorning when they see you, and if the greeting is reciprocated by you they would go to the next stage of trying to talk to you.
