When a man likes you, he will raise his eyebrows the first time he sees you and feels interested in you. This behavior lasts for microseconds and sometimes you might not notice if he is not so close. It happens subconsciously with any guy who feels attracted to a woman.
If the guy you’re talking to stretches out his hand when he’s speaking to you, he’s inviting you in with a desire to get close you. While this gesture is innocent, it displays that in that moment, he wants to welcome you in.
pronounced head shaking head strong disagreement The strength of movement of the head usually relates to strength of feeling, and often to the force by which the head-shaker seeks to send this message to the receiver. This is an immensely powerful signal and is used intentionally by some people to dominate others.
In some countries, Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria for example, moving the head up/down or from side to side may have additional or different meanings to those conventionally interpreted in the UK/US. Specifically, in Turkey, aside from using conventional (US/UK-style) head nodding and shaking, some people may also signal ‘no’ by moving their head up. (This is a refinement of previous details about head movements in body language, and I welcome more information especially from people overseas as to precise variations to US/UK conventional meanings in signally yes and no, and anything else, with head movements.)
looking right (generally) eyes creating, fabricating, guessing, lying, storytelling Creating here is basically making things up and saying them. Depending on context this can indicate lying, but in other circumstances, for example, storytelling to a child, this would be perfectly normal. Looking right and down indicates accessing feelings, which again can be a perfectly genuine response or not, depending on the context, and to an extent the person.
According to various research, men who are romantically interested in women will slow down their pace of walking to match the woman’s speed. If a man is walking alongside you, talking and show other things of interest, you can rest assured that he is interested in you.
I’ve been married 18 years and I’d say we are a happy couple. We exhibit most of what you describe with the exception that when we go out we usually sit across from each other and I think that is more of it is easier to talk when we are facing each other.
What you communicate through your body language and nonverbal signals affects how others see you, how well they like and respect you, and whether or not they trust you. Unfortunately, many people send confusing or negative nonverbal signals without even knowing it. When this happens, both connection and trust are damaged.

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.
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.
thumb and fingers formed into a tube and rocked side to side or up and down (mainly male) hands offensive – mockery, dissatisfaction, expression of inferior quality A conscious signal, usually one-handed. Insulting gesture if directed at a person, typically male to male, since it mimics masturbation, like calling a person a ‘tosser’ or a ‘wanker’ (UK) or a jerk-off (US). This is obviously rude and not used in respectable company such as the queen or a group of clergymen. The gesture is also used as a response to something regarded as poor quality, which might be a performance or piece of work or a comment on a product of some sort. The allusion is to masturbation being a poor substitute for sex with a woman, and that those who masturbate are not ‘real men’. Unsurprisingly the gesture is mainly male, directed at other males, especially in tribal-like gatherings. Rare female use of this gesture directed at males can be very effective due to its humiliating value. For obvious reasons the gesture is unlikely to be used by females or males directed at females.
Don’t get caught in a lie. “When a person fibs, it’s often accompanied by an adrenaline rush,” says psychologist Michael Cunningham, a professor of communication at the University of Louisville. This release causes capillaries to expand, making the nose itch. Another tall-tale tell: a sustained glance. A liar often overcompensates for being perceived as shifty by focusing a bit too intently on the person he is fibbing to.
The gesture he will use to smooth his hair depends on what style looks more flattery. He will do this involuntarily and more times than you expect. The next time you come out of the restroom, rest assured he will have his hands on his hair.
When a guy has a crush on you, he may ask you a lot of questions. In his mind, he’s trying to find ways to always be around you. Does it seems like wherever you go, he’s there? If he’s learned your schedule, you can take it as a sign that he wants to know more about you and be around you more often.
The way you work at exploring her interests determines how physically and emotionally close she is going to let you get to her. As you explore her, strive to build a supportive relationship where she feels safe, respected, valued, and protected. Don’t be judgmental or critical of anything. How accepting and open you are will affect how much she shares about herself.
When a man raises his eyebrows, it may be because you said or do something and a sign that he likes you. Sure, it’s not a definite sign of attraction, as it may be a friendly expression. Thus, never look at raised eyebrows alone as a surefire sign that he’s into you. Be sure you find other signs to go along with it.
I enjoyed your article. I was glad you included the wrist display and the “Insightful purse” gestures. Both are highly accurate attraction gestures. I thought I might add one gesture I was surprised wasn’t expounded on more.
Men can be quite possessive during flirting, and touching is a powerful weapon in any flirter’s arsenal. In short, being touched is rarely coincidental (even if it is not conscious). Where and how a touch is performed can speak volumes about what his intentions and feelings are. Let’s have a look at some common examples.
But almost every study into attraction conducted over the last 60 years reached the same conclusions as the painters, poets and writers over the past 6000 years – a woman’s appearance and body and what she can do with it is more attractive to men than her intelligence or assets, even in the politically correct twenty-first century. The twenty-first-century man wants the same immediate things in a woman as his forefathers did at first sight, but, he has different criteria for a long-term partner.
Beware of crossed arms. If she’s sitting back in her chair with her arms crossed, chances are she’s bored or uninterested. Try regaining her interest by sparking conversation about her and her life. If nothing works, you may need to find another girl.
Insightful Purse: Three words that are guaranteed to humiliate any man anywhere? … ‘Hold my purse’. But what men don’t realize is that this simple action can speak vastly of how a women feels towards them. A woman’s purse is one of the most personal things they own, in a sense, it has passed from being an accessory to becoming an extension of a woman as it carries all of her most intimate mysteries that most of us men live in fear of knowing … heck I’m afraid if I stick my hand in one I’ll come out with a finger missing or something. When women accept and feel attracted towards a guy, they will put the purse close to him as opposed to hiding it some place further away. The woman might start softly touching their purse as they talk to the guy, and when they begin to feel a stronger connection they will even entrust him with holding the purse, or looking inside and searching for something.
As she speaks, look into her eyes but don’t stare without blinking. Blink normally and let your eyes go looking around the area at other women while talking with her. As she speaks, casually look at her individual features: hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, cheeks, nose, lips, etc. That will keep you from going “glassy-eyed”. Stay with her face and forget her cleavage. She will notice that you really see her and are interested in exploring her. Women want to be seen. Her hormones will start flowing faster as she feels your eyes penetrating deep into her!
Facial Pedestal: When a woman joins her hands together by putting one over the other and resting her face on them, it doesn’t have anything to do with the “Head Support” boredom gesture. In fact this gesture reveals the total opposite meaning as it means she likes the company of the man and wants to display her face on a pedestal to gain his attention and let him admire her. Giving a compliment and the use of some flattery in those moments seems to get many men very far.
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.
A man who likes you will not shake hands with you as if he’s greeting a 90-year-old woman. His handshake is competitive and strong. If he touches you lightly on your forearm, he likes you and wants to create a romantic connection, socially or professionally. He does this so you can see him as a knight in shining armor you have always dreamt of.
I think by this article my man is falling in love with me. I’ve never had a man kiss me on the forehead like he does and he’s pinpointed every single thing you have written. Thank god cause I am sure I’ve fallen in love with him. I haven’t felt this way in years about a man.I think he may be my prince charming.
A guy who likes you will try to bridge the gap. When someone leans in when talking to you, he probably finds you attractive. Of course, the context matters, too. If there is limited space, leaning in is more of a necessity than a gesture to show he likes you.
Some guys flinch when you brush against them or touch them, because they don’t really want to be touched at all, or they’re uncertain of you. They may even think of you like a sister and feel uncomfortable touching you at all. But if a guy responds positively, then you know that he at least likes you.
Use the most positive (or, if warranted, negative) gestures and facial expressions first and last. While it is true that we make our most memorable impressions within the first five to ten seconds, we also make a crucial impression within the last five to ten seconds as well.
When a man likes a woman, and finds her interesting, he adjusts his cadence and walking speed for her. Men often walk faster than women because they are usually taller, so their stride is longer. If he adjusts his pace for you, this could convey his interest in being with you.
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.
A basic understanding of body language, combined with verbal communication, can come in handy in almost every situation in your daily life. Here are some common scenarios in which body language can have a big impact, plus tips for putting your best foot forward while you watch what others around you are saying with their silent signs.
You already know that the eyes are the window to the soul and that it’s one of the biggest signs of attraction. If he looks at you for more than a few seconds at a time, looks away and steals a glance again, he’s got an interest in you. And, if you happen to be talking to him and his eyes are dilated, he’s interested in what you have to say.
