Reading a Man's Body Language

Reading anyone is a difficult task, but reading a man's body language when you're interested in him can be particularly frustrating. If you learn to take the signs as they come and resist overanalyzing, you just might decode your man's body language.

Look to see in which direction he is leaning. If he is leaning towards you or seated so that he is facing you, it could mean that he's interested in you and in what you are saying or doing. If there seems to be a lot of space between the two of you, it could mean that he does not necessarily feel comfortable or that he's not as interested in you.

Eye contact is another telling sign. If he's looking directly at you when you speak, it means not only that he is interested in you, but also that he has nothing to hide. People who look away a lot are either very nervous or have something they're hiding. The exception would be linked to cultures-if his upbringing taught that looking people in the eye was a bad thing, he may not do it.

If a man keeps touching his body while speaking, it could men he's distracted or uncomfortable about whatever it is he's talking about. Fidgeting is a big sign of discomfort. Biting of the nails is yet another sign.

Look at the way a man sits and how his hands are positioned- if his arms are crossed and he's slouching, it means he feels nervous, upset, or isn't entirely into whatever activity it is that you are doing.

If he holds your hand, think about how his hands are positioned. If his grip is loose and you are palm vs. having interlocking fingers, it could mean he's trying to keep his distance from you and isn't as into the relationship. Interlocking fingers is a sign of intimacy and comfort.

If a man touches you a lot casually-on the hand, on the shoulder, or on the knee - it means he's not only interested in what you say and do, but he feels comfortable enough to do this.
