Tell me what you want, what you really really want. The Spice Girls were right and when it comes to a man who likes you, he has no problem giving you what you want. If you’re hungry, thirsty, hot, cold, tired – you don’t even have to say the word, he’ll notice and automatically act on it. He’s giving you all his attention, so he wants to make sure you’re happy and treated as you should be – like a queen.
Girls, some guys won’t like you back and won’t appreciate the flirting. You will know that this happens if you laugh at something he says or if you do some kind of flirtatious movement, and they look at you strangely. Guys, don’t be afraid to say thanks but no thanks to the girl who’s flirting with you. Then she won’t have to waste her time flirting with you anymore and she can flirt with someone else.

Even if you’re sitting up straight with your shoulders aligned and your head up—all signs of an open body position—your feet may be betraying you. If they’re cocked inward, big toe to big toe, this indicates that you’re closing yourself off because you feel awkward or insecure.
Texting etiquette, decoding subtle subtexts in your conversations, or even what outfit to wear out on a date can cause anyone to stress out about the whole dating scene. I’ve had friends who have temporarily deleted dating apps to give themselves a break from the sometimes confusing and frustrating world of online dating. And what about when you finally meet? That’s an entirely different story with its own set of rules and social cues.
When men are trying to be sweet, they will treat you really well. They will try to make you feel special by complementing your natural beauty. When they begin to notice your freckles, dimples and birthmarks, they are noticing you and not just their idea of you.
You can read body language to determine whether it is love or lust. This is an important skill for women to have so they don’t get their feelings hurt, and learn to interpret the body language of men in love correctly.
Most of us focus on signs that don’t really show us what we need to see. We listen to what they tell us, but not watch what they do. Remember the saying, actions speak louder than words? It’s really true, especially when it comes to seeing if he’s genuinely interested in you. Understanding the body language of men is like learning a foreign language.
“Kinesics – the study of the way in which certain body movements and gestures serve as a form of non-verbal communication… [and] body movements and gestures regarded as a form of non-verbal communication.”
Usually, when we think of someone blushing, we think of a shy girl, but a lot of guys do it as well. I’m not talking about shy guys only. Blushing is one of the bodily functions that we cannot control and if the guy blushes around you this is a good sign that he is really into you and can’t hide it!
pupils dilated (enlarged) eyes attraction, desire The pupil is the black centre of the eye which opens or closes to let in more or less light. Darkness causes pupils to dilate. So too, for some reason does seeing something appealing or attractive. The cause of the attraction depends on the situation. In the case of sexual attraction the effect can be mutual – dilated pupils tend to be more appealing sexually that contracted ones, perhaps because of an instinctive association with darkness, night-time, bedtime, etc., although the origins of this effect are unproven. Resist the temptation to imagine that everyone you see with dilated pupils is sexually attracted to you.
Basically then, try to interpret anyone’s mood using this clue alone, and instead, use it in tandem with other signs to get a clearer understanding of what to do next. Getting this one wrong really can have disastrous results.
If you went traveling or gone grocery shopping with him, he’s had another opportunity to show you with his body language that he flat out adores you. Is he carrying things for you even though you can do it yourself? I find it kind of funny when guys do this because often it doesn’t even make sense. But if he’s gone into man mode, which is different than guy mode, he wants to prove himself to you, so why not let him?
Noticing the signs of attraction that are hidden in body language can instantly tell you if a guy likes you or not. Reading a man’s body includes looking at the way he carries himself, the movement of his eyes, the stiffness in his posture and some of the other obvious signs of passive flirting.
Theory suggests that when a group sits around a table the person sitting on the leader’s right will generally be the most loyal and aligned to the leader’s thinking and wishes. A (likely) mythical origin is said to be that in Roman times a leader would place their most loyal supporter to their right because this was the most advantageous position from which to attempt an assassination by stabbing (given that most people then as now were right-handed). Assassination by stabbing is rare in modern work meetings, so positioning an opponent on your right side (instead of allowing the normal opposite positioning to happen) can be a useful tactic since this indicates confidence and strength.

Forget about men always making the first move. Sometimes they just wait for a cue from you and it’s important to know how to give it, based on the guy’s body language. Get familiar with the most obvious signs of attraction men can’t hide, including shy guy body language.
In expectation of these ‘masking’ tendencies in others, humans try to imagine what another person has in their mind. The need to understand what lies behind the mask obviously increases according to the importance of the relationship.
Mime/miming gestures – gestures used consciously to convey a specific message, such as extending the thumb and little finger by the ear to say “Phone me,” or wiping imaginary sweat from the brow to express relief after a crisis subsides.
The cultural equivalence model predicts that “individuals should be equally accurate in understanding the emotions of ingroup and outgroup members” (Soto & Levenson, 2009). This model is rooted in Darwin’s (1872) evolutionary theory, where he noted that both humans and animals share similar postural expressions of emotions such as anger/aggression, happiness, and fear. These similarities support the evolution argument that social animals (including humans) have a natural ability to relay emotional signals with one another, a notion shared by several academics (Chevalier-Skolnikoff, 1974; Linnankoski, Laakso, Aulanko, & Leinonen, 1994). Where Darwin notes similarity in expression among animals and humans, the Cultural Equivalence Model notes similarity in expression across cultures in humans, even though they may be completely different.
Look for mirrored movements. Often, a woman who is interested will subconsciously mirror your movements. This shows that the two of you are on the same wavelength and can thus increase intimacy in the relationship. That’s why dancing is considered intimate or sexy—it forces you to mirror each other’s movements! 
Another clear sign of attraction is when a guy seems to have a complete meltdown and he starts to nervously fidget when you are in front of him. This is a common trait in men who are not confident enough to ask a girl out.
clenched fist(s) hands resistance, aggression, determination One or two clenched fists can indicate different feelings – defensive, offensive, positive or negative, depending on context and other signals. Logically a clenched fist prepares the hand (and mind and body) for battle of one sort or another, but in isolation the signal is impossible to interpret more precisely than a basic feeling of resolve.
