Does he just stands near you with his arms crossed, seeming uninterested, or, is he constantly trying to find some excuse to touch you? There is always some crumb on your sweater, an eyelash on your cheek that needs to be removed, or your wild hair is always in need of taming by his helpful hand. Believe me, this is not a sign of your falling behind with your hygiene but of male body language attraction.
Look for the body language when a he is attracted to you. When the behavior of the guy changes as soon as he sees you, that’s one of the biggest signs he’s into you as well as he’s trying to sway you. If he’s with people or his friends and he’s acting rowdy or laughing hard, he may right away go silent as soon as he notices you coming. Or he may have been silent already and all of a sudden gets louder as well as tries to become noticeable so that he could impress you.
And while not technically part of body language, environment is a vital aspect of dating and mating. The environment in which the dating activity is pursued equates to market/audience-targeting in business. People seeking a mate are effectively marketing themselves. Commonly people head to where everyone else goes – to nightclubs and dating websites – but crucially these environments are highly unsuitable markets for many people, for instance those not good at dancing, and those not good at writing and communicating online. Just as a business needs to find the best markets and ways of reaching its target audience, so in dating people can seek environments where they can best display their strengths and where relevant ‘buyers’ will be.
