10 Body Language Signs Of Attraction You Need To Know About
You can’t read the signs if you don’t even know what they are. In this article, Beauty and Tips takes a look at 10 body language signs of attraction you need to know about.
Are you one of those who are super bad at recognising signs? If a guy is pea-cocking at you to show that he’s interested, do you misinterpret his intentions because you can’t read signs? Not only is body language itself an art – so is interpreting it. People give off signs as to how they’re feeling all the time, and most of it is done unconsciously. You might not realise it, but if you like a guy but are too shy to tell him, you may have already told him via body language! Body language, then, is really important, not only to the exhibitor but also to the receiver. If you want to learn how to show you’re into someone via body language, or if you want to be a better reader of the opposite sexes body language, let’s take a look at 10 body language signs of attraction you need to know about.
Smiles And Laughter
This is really basic body language that should be easy to read. If someone smiles and laughs a lot in your company, it means they really like you.
Hey, you might not even be all that funny, and you’re aware of this. But if they’re still laughing a lot at your jokes and the things you do? It’s a strong sign that they like you.
Women tend to laugh at jokes that aren’t all that funny more than men. If they like a guy, smiling a lot in his company and laughing at his jokes is an easy way to show him that they’re interested in him. They’ll giggle and chortle, smile and be positive much more than usual.
Same Walking Pace
What is it with guys marching off as though they’re on a mission to save the world?! Guys usually walk fast – so fast that we literally can’t keep up with them. However, when a guy is in the company of someone he genuinely likes, perhaps even loves? He’ll slow pace down and adapt to the woman’s. Aww, he doesn’t have to do that. But it’s real sweet. (until we make him late for the game, of course)
What is preening? Preening is one of clear body language signs of attraction, it is what girls – and guys! – do to make sure we’re still looking good. We’ll find a mirror and adjust ourselves – our hair, our lipstick et cetera. We won’t just do this in private – we’ll also do it in full view of the other person. Indeed, if you watch them preening around you, it’s a massive sign that they like you. Why? Because they clearly want to make sure that they look good around you!
Watch out for the signs. Do you adjust your shirt to draw attention to your breasts? Do you lift your dress up slightly to draw attention to your legs? Half the time, you might not even be aware you’re doing these things. They’re super subtle manoeuvres that let a guy know you’re attracted to him.
When we spread our legs, it suggests that we’re prepared to be vulnerable around someone – another one of body language signs of attraction.
Like smiling, eye contact isn’t really one that you can miss. Pay attention to how they look at you when you’re together – especially how much they look at you. Do they gaze directly into your eyes? Or do they look away a lot? Anyone who looks away all the time probably isn’t all that interested. But someone who fixes their gaze steadfastly on us is showing us they’re attracted to us.
Bodies Turn Towards One Another
It’s a curious thing that, when we’re feeling uncomfortable in the presence of someone, we’ll unconsciously turn our body away so that we’re ready to escape whenever the time is right. On the other hand, if we’re relaxed around someone and enjoying their company, we’ll turn our body to face them. It could be quite a comedic situation if one of you has your body turned to the other, while the other has theirs turned away!
Ever found yourself playing with your hair around a guy you like? Ever noticed a guy playing with his hair around you? Hair touching is a form of flirting. We play with our hair – unconsciously or consciously – to show a person that we like them. Guys play with their hair just as much as girls do, so make sure you don’t misread his signals. If he starts smoothing his hair down, it’s another one of body language signs of attraction.
Licking Of The Lips
Do people really lick their lips in anticipation of some fun? Or is that just a cliché from the movies? It’s totally real. You may not have realised it, but if you’re into a guy and want to go back to his place, you may have licked your lips in his company more than once.
A Change In Their Voice
This body language sign of attraction is more reserved for guys. When a guy likes a girl, he wants her to know that he’s a proper man – but he also wants to make sure she knows he isn’t a threat to her. How does he do this? He’ll first adopt a deeper tone of voice to emphasise his masculinity. But to make sure that he doesn’t come across as too gruff, and therefore a bit freaking scary and weird, he’ll also speak with a sing-song tone. This makes him more appealing to women who want to date a proper man – but who isn’t a total psycho!
Slow, Deliberate Movements
Lastly, where fast, jerky actions suggest nerves, anxiety and discomfort, slow, deliberate movements suggest comfort, contentment, control – and attraction. Pay careful attention to how someone behaves around you. If they move slowly, it’s one of strong body language signs of attraction.
