This action doesn’t just speak for the relationship. It tells a lot about his personality. A man that speaks with his hands is an active and expressive communicator. He has no problem telling you what he wants or holding his feelings back.
Learn to spot additional signals and cues by reading books written by body language experts. Find books on the subject at the library, local bookstores or online shops. The more you know, the better you will be at understanding the male species.
But, if the guy likes you, he doesn’t want to say goodbye. If he had it his way, he’d be spending every day with you. So, when it’s time to say goodbye if he tries to start a conversation or lingers after saying goodbye to you, it’s a good sign that he doesn’t want to say goodbye. He’s into you!
There’s nothing more tormenting than beating around the bush. Girls love to play that game more than the men. However, when the men give it a shot, they’re pretty good at it! They leave the woman hanging by a fragile Note that the man wouldn’t take the effort to beat around the bush, if he wasn’t interested (unless, he made a bet to ride you in circles). Actions speak louder than words, indeed!
When two people in an established intimate relationship use body language, it can take on far more subtle meanings. This is especially true if the relationship is troubled in some way or if there is poor verbal communication between them. On the other end of the spectrum, though, body language can become a special communication tool used to convey messages of love, connection, appreciation, and the like.
Julius Fast was an American award winning writer of fiction and non-fiction work dealing especially with human physiology and behaviour. His book Body Language was among the first to bring the subject to a mainstream audience.

Wrist Display: There are certain vulnerable spots in our bodies due to their fragility or delicacy that we tend to protect: our neck, throat and wrist being some of them. Most people if you observe, usually walk with their wrists facing the sides of their body as a way of protection, however, if you observe some people with mental illnesses such as schizophrenia sufferers, they will walk with their palms and wrists facing backwards as an additional protection. Plenty of over-the-top gay men use the wrist display constantly even walking around with it as an attempt to look effeminate. When women are interested in men they will slowly start showing him glimpses of their wrists and the more they like them the longer the glimpses will last – this is why the wrist has always been considered a highly erotic area as women have more nerve receptors there making it more sensitive, which is where applying perfume on the wrists comes from. There are a variety of ways women choose to expose their wrists, from touching their wrists themselves (Touch Me, Myself & I technique), to putting their wrists on the table in front of a male, as well as the popular wrist exposure that comes with women smokers who do it quite obviously.
Just think of those butterflies you’ve felt when you’ve been really into someone, the feeling makes it almost impossible not to smile, so trust that if they’re interested, they’ll be feeling the same way as well.
it’s been interesting reading your article about the ever-intriguing theme of men-women interaction… What I’d like to highlight is that what you’ve said is nothing new, it’s been brought to consciousness as of recently (or it may be that I’ve started reading it more closely) but how you’ve said it and your personality…well that makes a difference (or maybe not ; )
Also remember that cultural differences influence body language signals and their interpretation. This guide is based on ‘Western World’ and North European behaviours. What may be ‘obvious’ in one culture can mean something different in another culture.
Watch for negative male body language signals such as lack of eye contact, poor posture, hiding of the hands, mumbling, stuttering, mispronunciation, extraneous body movements and darting eyes. These gestures indicate that he is either insecure, uninterested, bored, keeping something from you, lying to you or he’s nervous. Negative male body language is basically a sign that he is anxious to get away for some reason. If you feel that he is nervous, try to make him feel more at ease by shifting attention away from yourself. Otherwise, take the negative signals for what they are, and get out of there. Life is too short.
“Synchrony is a signal that both people are on the same page,” says Buck. “When you see someone copying your body language, or you notice that you are copying his, it’s a clue that you are probably sharing a similar mind-set at the time.”
Loving people tend to show care toward their beloved ones. If instead of straightening your clothes or smoothing your hair, they simply inform you that your hair is messy, you should think whether your relationship is still harmonious.

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.
Equally, if you are feeling somewhat defensive going into a negotiating situation , you can monitor your own body language to ensure that the messages you are conveying are ones that say that you are open and receptive to what is being discussed.
Leakage – leakage signals are the small signs which are most difficult to control or mask, and which therefore offer clues even when someone is generally in good control of their outgoing body language signals.
foot forward, standing feet directed towards dominant group member The signal is interesting among groups, when it can indicate perceptions of leadership or dominance, i.e., the forward foot points at the leader or strongest member of the group.
head nodding head agreement Head nodding can occur when invited for a response, or voluntarily while listening. Nodding is confusingly and rather daftly also referred to as ‘head shaking up and down’. Head nodding when talking face-to-face one-to-one is easy to see, but do you always detect tiny head nods when addressing or observing a group?
The exception among Fast’s contemporary influences was Charles Darwin, and specifically his book The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals, written in 1872, which is commonly regarded as the beginnings of the body language science, albeit not recognised as such then.
It is commonly and carelessly quoted that ‘non-verbal communications’ and/or ‘body language’ account for up to 93% of the meaning that people take from any human communication. This statistic is actually a distortion based on Albert Mehrabian’s research theory, which while itself is something of a cornerstone of body language research, certainly did not make such a sweeping claim.
head down (in response to a speaker or proposition) head negative, disinterested Head down is generally a signal of rejection (of someone’s ideas etc), unless the head is down for a purpose like reading supporting notes, etc. Head down when responding to criticism is a signal of failure, vulnerability (hence seeking protection), or feeling ashamed.
Special Note: If a man you’re talking to strokes your hair before a relationship has been established, you may want to back away. This person may be a bit too aggressive or unable to properly react in a social way.
Go through your morning routine — what you do at lunch, how you spend your afternoon and evening — and ask yourself questions like: Do I smile? Do I make appropriate eye contact with people? Once you better recognize your body language, you can start to manage it in a more meaningful way.
In British society, it tends to be seen as an inappropriate distance for public behaviour and entering the intimate space of another person with whom you do not have a close relationship can be extremely disturbing.
Think about it. When you’re out at a bar, if a girl is trying to get away from you, one of the easiest ways to do that is to start flitting her eyes around the room, looking for absolutely anything else she can be doing but talking to you. On the other hand, the eyes aren’t just windows of the soul. They’re kind of tractor beams of the soul. When she gazes back at you, she’s trying to pull you in further and prolong the interaction. Don’t discount the simple act of eye contact as a sign of attraction.
I noticed something today when I was on delivery. I saw a point where women bite their nails if they are eyeing up on at times? I had this happen at work today, and she kind of stared half at me and looked down at the same time. I found it a bit aggressive in all honesty and quite intimidating the way she went about it. also, she had a kid, and looked like 1 could be on the way, so this I didn’t take kindly to either. I was walking back up 10minutes later, she was there still, I noticed some muttering as I walked past. We also drove past her again in the van 10minutes later as we had finished that part of the route on our working delivery point, I noticed she looked again. I’m on there tomorrow and Saturday also. Tbh, I hope she isn’t there or is indoors. She lives at the house. I just found it to be quite aggressive.
