A touch helps a person convey emotions without saying a word. At the same time, it helps build trust. When he is finding excuses to touch you, he might want more than a platonic friendship. If you like him to, there is a chance a hot romance is budding.
Traditionally women are thought to be the sex who prance and preen to impress. However, although played out differently, men also ‘peacock’, engaging in preening and tidying behaviors to communicate attraction. He might fix his socks by pulling them up or adjusting them, play with the buttons nervously on his jacket (which can be an unconscious desire to remove his clothes) or stroke his tie. These are all ways of saying that he likes you enough to want to look good for you. So if he is fiddling and sprucing, it is not necessarily nerves, but is his way of ensuring he looks his Sunday best to impress!
Hugging. When you hug, is the duration of the hug longer than 5-10 seconds? Platonic hugs are usually about that, but if he’s holding on longer than that, it probably means he doesn’t want it to be a ‘just friends’ hug. If he lingers and holds on a little when you pull away, you know he doesn’t want to let go.

Some signs might include the person looking at you to stare or maybe just glancing at you. Even when you are speaking to that person, he/she might not look at you directly in the eyes as they may be scared of revealing their true intentions. Read up on flirting signals to get more ideas — whether or not the person is shy, they will still give away signs.
looking right sideways eyes imagining sounds Sideways eye movements are believed to indicate imagining (right) or recalling (left) sounds, which can include for example a person imagining or fabricating what another person has said or could say.
Interviews and appraisals can benefit from relaxed or more formal seating depending on the situation. Importantly – make a conscious choice about furniture depending on the tone of the meeting, and how relaxed you want the meeting to be.
Gestures are as varied as people themselves. A good way to learn this is by watching people speaking on TV, whether giving a speech or being interviewed. Pay special attention to their gestures and what they mean, and copy those in your own speeches.
Skip the meaningless brags about yourself. Men’s brags are mostly about their high status, real or imagined. Anyway, all your words are pretty meaningless at this point. She is mostly reading your body language and nonverbal cues about how you feel about her.
This is a unique position that women don’t normally do. It’s often unintentional on the part of the man. Does he stand up taller, pushing his chest out, while holding in his stomach to impress you? It’s also important to note if he does it immediately after noticing you, and does he do it each time that he sees you?
In order to send accurate nonverbal cues, you need to be aware of your emotions and how they influence you. You also need to be able to recognize the of others and the true feelings behind the cues they are sending. This is where emotional awareness comes in.
It has been said that a kiss on the forehead means just one thing; that he wants to keep you forever. It’s an endearing gesture that is respectful, and when he has reached this level of sweetness, you have won his heart. Whatever you are doing, keep it up because it’s working. Keep being the fierce woman that you are because he digs it.
Clenched fists or other tension in the body can be signs of aggression, as if the person is prepared for a fight. Facing the other person, squared off and towards them, and sitting near them can also be signs of aggression. Sudden movements might be made.
This catch-your-eye game, usually played in guy-girl situations, tends to mirror your scattered thoughts. Does he like me? Do I like him? Do I want him to come over here? Also, unlike a direct gaze, the back-and-forth variety is a protective measure: If he doesn’t approach you, you won’t feel rejected.
When another person displays similar body language to our own, this makes us react unconsciously to feel, “This person is like me and agrees with the way I am. I like this person because we are similar, and he/she likes me too.”
The difference between the words people speak and our understanding of what they are saying comes from non-verbal communication, otherwise known as “body language.” As you will learn in this article and video, by developing your awareness of the signs and signals of body language, you can more easily understand other people, and more effectively communicate with them.
This point (thanks R Fox) concerns eye contact. Eye contact (other than unwanted staring) is generally regarded as a positive aspect of body language in Western cultures, which in this context typically refers to white European people and descendents. A specific difference regarding eye contact can be found in some black Caribbean cultures however, whereby young people tend to be instructed not look at someone eye to eye when being told off or disciplined. When cultures meet obviously this provides potential for friction, given the ‘Western’ expectation in such situations, for example, “Look at me when I’m talking to you”.
Leg twine – a tight-leg cross ‘aimed’ (combined with eye contact) at a target, or when sitting one-to-one, increases sexual allure since it emphasises leg shape and tone. When employed flirtatiously, female leg crossing and uncrossing also has obvious sexual connotations and stimulates basic urges in males.
chin up head pride, defiance, confidence Very similar to the ‘head held high’ signal. Holding the chin up naturally alters the angle of the head backwards, exposing the neck, which is a signal of strength, resilience, pride, resistance, etc. A pronounced raised chin does other interesting things to the body too – it tends to lift the sternum (breast-bone), which draws in air, puffing out the chest, and it widens the shoulders. These combined effects make the person stand bigger. An exposed neck is also a sign of confidence. ‘Chin up’ is for these reasons a long-standing expression used to encourage someone to be brave.
Couples who have been together many years often develop a set of non-verbal cues specific to their relationship. For instance, in social situations it might only take deliberate eye contact, a tug on the elbow, or a tilt of the head to indicate when one person is ready to go. Parents also can become quite good at this process, using facial expressions to communicate when a child misbehaves or when one needs a break from the kids for some reason.
NLP/Neuro-linguistic programming – a branch of psychology developed in the 1960s which combines language, body movement and thought to optimise self-control and development, and relationships and communications with others. NLP research has fuelled much of the analytical aspects of modern popular body language, notably mirroring and eye movements.
#7 He’s detached from his friends. He may be standing with his friends, but he’s not really standing with them. You notice that he’s slightly off to the side of friends, wanting to be seen as one person rather than someone in a group of people. He’s trying to show he’s not tied to them.
Keep in mind that most of these things aren’t conscious actions for women. Although some, like eye contact and smiling, are always conscious, things like fidgeting and mirroring your movements are most likely involuntary things, so try not to read too much into things. Also don’t go too hard.
Has he been lending you a hand like you’re Cinderella hopping down from your carriage? That means he thinks of you as a queen (of course, you are one). When he offers you his hand to make sure you’re safe or just to make your life a little easier, it’s his way of saying ‘I love you.’ He is trying to reinforce that he will take care of you and protect you.
Cliché? Well, maybe, but also the strongest signal on this list! This too falls under the ‘can’t escape evolution’ category but has to be discussed in detail! This posture is an obvious clue that chemistry is happening right there, in front of your eyes, but you are failing to take notice of it!
Do not assume that you have correctly identified the meaning of another person’s body language without verification. Context matters too. For example, people often interpret a person’s arms crossed across their chest as meaning that they are distancing or displaying a defensive character. Perhaps they are simply cold!
Is he being friendly or is he flirting with you? If you are confused by a man’s intentions, you could use some lessons on body language. Getting hints from the body language of men can save you from embarrassing yourself.
