My Hips Don’t Lie: Women as we all know, have wider hips than men due to the fact that they need a wider pelvic region for childbearing purposes. This also means that women have a wider gap in their crotch which doesn’t allow them to run as fast as men, but makes them walk in a way that emphasizes their hips with a unique wiggle men can’t do. It has been found that the most healthy women with best chances of reproduction, are the ones who have a 70% waist to hip ratio, meaning their waist is 70% the size of their hips – not surprisingly this is the ratio men unconsciously find most attractive. Woman who feel a connection or attraction with the man they are speaking with, will also tilt their hips from side to side resting their whole weight on one leg to make that hip side protrude.
Early natural exponents of interpreting body language were for example the poker players of the American Wild West. The winners had not only to be handy with a six-shooter, but also skilled in reading other people’s non-verbal signals, and controlling their own signals.
If there’s one thing to take away from your hands, it is that if you are still exhibiting confident body language, your hands can do what they want. If you are using poor negative beta body language then your hands can convey that you are a beta male and the characteristics associated with a beta.
Men aren’t very good communicators, so, most of the time, they won’t tell you straight up how they feel. Instead, you’ll need to swift through the signs. Sure, they may drop verbal hints, but the best way to see is through body language. Body language cannot be ignored and much of it is subconscious, thus, it’s more honest then the words they say.
For example we know if we have eye contact with someone at an almost unbelievable distance. Far too far away to be able to see the detail of a person’s eyes – 30-40 metres away or more sometimes – we know when there is eye contact. This is an absolutely awesome capability when you think about it.
When the happy couple sits next to each other their signs or signals of body language once again will include touch. The couple may be holding hands or one person may place their hand on the leg of their partner or on their back. It may even be that one person leans on the other person. Their body language for the most part will seem comfortable when looking that them.
Now, some guys lack experience or are simply shy, but that doesn’t mean they won’t give you signals. Most of our communication stems through body language. All you need is to keep your eye on the body language of men. You take all the information you need just from watching him, it’s that easy.
Do you ever wish there was a magic wand that would make you more attractive to the opposite sex, or at least help you understand who is attracted to you? Well, it’s no magic but a science. Here’s how men and women can learn to master the art of love.
Women like to think that men don’t notice anything new about a woman, whether she has new hair or is wearing a new shirt, but that’s not true. Don’t forget that men are extremely visual. If a guy is really into you, they’ll notice all the little changes you’ve made to your look. If he notices that you look good, he’ll tell you that you look good. This is another great sign that he’s into you.
Emotional intelligence – also known as EQ, Emotional Intelligence is based on ‘feeling intelligence’ (rather than IQ – Intelligence Quotient – based on logical intelligence), and the capability to understand and communicate with others very empathically, which requires awareness of emotional behaviour and ability to deal with people sensitively. See Emotional Intelligence.
Consider how your perceptions of people are affected by the way they sit, walk, stand, or hold their head. The way you move and carry yourself communicates a wealth of information to the world. This type of nonverbal communication includes your posture, bearing, stance, and subtle movements.
Looking sideways up – lowering head, slightly sideways, and looking up – also known as doe-eyes, with eyelashes normally slightly lowered – displays interest and vulnerability/coyness, most famously employed by Diana Princess of Wales, notably in her interview with Martin Bashir in battle for public sympathy following her split with Prince Charles.
Major problems in the relationship can be revealed if you and/or your significant other refuse to touch each other at all. Those who are in love or interested in each other will make simple little gestures such as holding hands and finding other ways to be affectionate. Are you avoiding your spouse at all cost? If so, your body language is revealing the truth about your relationship.
Purse behavior is a form of nonverbal communication. It is how someone interacts with their environment based on their emotions. The purse is an interesting indicator of nonverbal behavior. For example, if a woman is feeling uncomfortable or not attracted to someone she will either clutch her bag tightly or place it in front of or covering her body. When a woman is attracted to a man she literally and figuratively wants nothing to stand in the way between her and her man. If she is loosely holding her purse and it is not blocking her front this shows she is at ease and feels more attraction. Better yet, if she puts it on the floor, a nearby table or on the back of the chair she wants it out of the way for her interactions with you. [Please note context here, if you are in a very public or potentially dangerous location she could be gripping her purse safety concerns, but in a casual place or on a date this can be a good indicator].
Look at his feet! No matter if you’re sitting or standing, his feet will point toward where he wants to go. If one foot is pointed toward the door, that’s where he wants to go! If his feet are pointed at you, that’s a sign he likes you. Here’s a guy who wants to be anywhere else than where he is!
Certain body language is the same in all people, for example smiling and frowning (and see the six universally recognizable facial expressions above), but some body language is specific to a culture or ethnic group.
Let me note here that you don’t want to exaggerate this alpha posture. Don’t go crazy pushing your chest out or making an insane backwards c on your lower spine. I once helped a guy out and he did this and it just showed what an idiot he was. No offense. I understand it takes time and knowledge, but don’t be like him.
When your man begins to think of the two of you as a unit instead of separate beings, he will make gestures that show that bond. He will try to stay connected to you even when you’re apart by sending you pictures, poems, checking in to see how your day is going and ensuring you that he is waiting eagerly to see you. When he isn’t avoiding you and is trying to remind you that he is there, you will feel safer with him.
0-6in lovers, and physical touching relationships Sometimes included with the 2nd zone below, this is a markedly different zone in certain situations, for example face-to-face contact with close friends rarely encroaches within 6 inches, but commonly does with a lover.
This is due fundamentally to human mating behaviour, evolved over many thousands of years, in which essentially women control the chase and the choice, and men respond primarily to female availability and permissions. These differences in behaviour perhaps mainly exist because females produce one viable egg per month, about 500 in a lifetime, whereas males make several hundred sperm every day. Do the math, as they say.
Or he could have a sinus infection and has to breathe through his mouth. Listen to his voice. Does he sound nasally and stuffed up? If so, then why are you hanging out with him? Do you want to get sick too?
Compared to men, women have a lot more body language clues when they like someone. If she licks or bites her lips a lot and plays with her hair more when she is around someone, she is definitely attracted to them.
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.
One way a woman can make her eyes seem bigger, and herself seem smaller, is to lower her head when she’s looking up at her lover. The result is that she looks vulnerable and in need of protection. Women also lower their heads when they’re flirting with a man because it’s a sign of submission.
In such cases, although the person may avoid turning their body towards you, their feet may still give them away. If their feet are pointing towards you, it’s a good indication they’re interested in you.
Because women are less perceptive, they tend to have more subtle ways of flirting. Men will “hit on” a woman, going out of their way to express and cultivate interest at the same time. In contrast, women don’t want to make it super obvious that they’re flirting. This means you have to pay more attention to catch those signs at first. But once you learn how to recognize them, you’ll start having a lot more fun when you go out.

Watch for crying. Crying is considered to be caused by an explosion of emotion in most cultures. Oftentimes crying is considered a sign of sadness or grief, but crying can also be an expression of happiness. Crying can also come about through laughter and humor. Thus, when assessing crying, you’ll need to look for other signals to determine the appropriate context of the crying.
