If you’re like most women, you’ve probably encountered many sleepless nights wondering if the guy you like is attracted to you. Fortunately, there are ways to tell if he feels the same way just by studying his body language. Thanks to the subconscious signals he sends out, it’s easy to guess what’s on his mind. The trick is in knowing which nonverbal cues to look for. Read the following 10 signs that he is attracted to you, and all of his body language secrets will be revealed once and for all.
1. Exaggerated Movements or Behavior
This behavior can range from a subtle tie adjustment to a loud and boisterous display. Any exaggerated movement or gesture while in your presence suggests that he is trying to get your attention. He may do something silly in order to amuse you, for example, or try to appear ultra-confident and relaxed (when it’s obvious that he is nervous around you). He may even shift positions so that he is standing slightly apart from his friends or a group of people in order to get your attention.
2. Eye Contact
A man will prolong eye contact with a woman he finds appealing. Also, pay attention to his pupils; pupil dilation is an indication of sexual attraction and interest. If he maintains eye contact and his pupils are dilated, there is a good chance he is interested in you.
If he is interested in you, there’s no doubt that he will smile a lot more while in your presence. It’s a natural reaction that suggests he is comfortable and happy being with you. Smiling also shows that he has a friendly personality and it can ease any tension between the two of you.
A man who is interested will smooth his hair or straighten his tie in order to look good for you. If he exhibits any type of preening behavior while interacting with you, it is a sure sign of attraction. This is one body language behavior that should not be overlooked when trying to determine if he is attracted to you.
5. His Feet Point Toward You
Look down at his feet to see if they are pointed in your direction. If his feet point toward you while the two of you are standing in a group of a people, this is a sure sign that he is attracted to you. Standing with his feet pointed toward you is a symbolic way of saying that he wants to move in your direction. This also applies to hand gestures he makes while talking. If his hands point in your direction while he is talking in a group of people, it’s his subconscious way of saying this is the person I want. People instinctively make hand gestures in the direction of the person they are attracted to.
6. Raised Eyebrows
If his eyebrows are slightly raised upon meeting you or during conversation, it means that he finds you interesting. People subconsciously raise their eyebrows and open their eyes wide when they are looking at something they like. This allows their eyes to take in more of the object that is so appealing.
7. Auto-erotic Touching
When we are attracted to someone, our skin becomes increasingly sensitive to touch and other stimulation. If a man is interested, he may stoke his cheek repeatedly with his fingers or rub his chin. This nonverbal behavior is a combination of nervous excitement and auto-erotic touching, and suggests that he is attracted to you.
8. Macho Stance
Men tend to stand up straight and display their muscles when they are in the presence of a female they find attractive. If his hands are on his hips, it’s another sign that he is interested. A man will stand with his hands on his hips to emphasize his size and body confidence.
Most men become nervous when in the presence of a female they are attracted to. Does he act normal and calm when he is talking to other people, and then suddenly become nervous and clumsy while engaging in conversation with you? If so, this is a sure sign that he likes you.
10. “Accidental” Touching
This brief touch may appear accidental at first, but it’s really just his way of showing interest. For example, his fingers may brush up against yours when he is handing you an object; or when standing side-by-side, he might “accidentally” bump into you. Any type of touching behavior indicates interest.
Consider the Rule of Four
The rule of four states that in order to be sure that another person is displaying nonverbal sexual interest, four positive signals must be present simultaneously and the signals must be directed at you. Keep this in mind when trying to determine if the guy you like feels the same way about you.
Now that you know the secrets of male body language, you’ll never have to wonder again if he is interested in you. Keep these tips for decoding male flirting behavior in mind the next time you interact with the guy of your dreams, and you should have no problem figuring out if the feeling is mutual.
