Body language dating advice
People are normally protective when it comes to touching. (Learn the science behind mirroring here.) Want To Know If He Likes You? It’s also the hardest body language sign for him to hide.
Maybe he’s shy, maybe he’s insecure, maybe he’s afraid of rejection, and so on.
In fact, it’s the highest amount of intimacy you can build without touching.
A major sign that he likes you is if he’ll make eye contact with you from across the room, then look away, then reestablish eye contact. When you are interested in what someone is saying, you lean in. When a man is interested in you, he’ll lean in even if he can hear what you’re saying perfectly. Most people are protective of their personal space.
He may find “innocent” ways to touch you that aren’t as overt as gentle caresses- maybe a thumb wrestling match, or a high-five that lingers a little too long, or any other game that involves a little touching.
His touches can also be a way of testing the waters and seeing how you respond, which might tell him if you’re interested.
