How to Read His Body Language
Six telltale signs a guy is into you.
Is he just being friendly, or does he want you? Or does he want your friend? Oh the questions that keep us up at night, keep us talking on the phone for hours, and prevent us from being productive at work. Well, the good news, fair ladies, is that if you learn to read his body language you’ll have your answer. No more painful nights (and days) spent wondering if he really is into you. Here are six ways to interpret what his body is telling you, even when he doesn’t say a word:
1. He looks at you more than twice. If you’re out somewhere and a guy looks at you a time or two, he could just be checking out his surroundings. But if you catch him looking at you three or more times, it’s a sure sign he’s into you. According to Janine Driver author of the bestselling book, You Say More Than You Think, “Even if he doesn’t approach you, if he’s looked at you more than twice, he likes you.” So if you think the guy checking you out is cute, walk over to him. “If you’re worried about what to say, tell him you and your friend have a bet and you need him to be the tie-breaker,” says Driver. “And the bet can be about anything, even something like ‘Do girls who wear green on St. Patty’s Day get hit on more?’”
2. He’s all up in your grill. When a guy is interested he’s going to get in your personal space and put his face close to yours when he’s talking to you. How close is close? According to Driver, closer than normal means anything less than about 18 inches. Specifics aside, if you feel like he’s in your space or closer than most people get when talking to you, trust your instincts – he probably is.
3. He’s talking slow and soft. According to Greg Hartley, a graduate of the U.S. Army Interrogation School and the author of Date Decoder, “When you’re attracted to someone you talk 25% slower and softer than you normally would.” So if he’s talking like he wants you to hang on his every word, the truth is he does – and it’s likely he’s wanting to hang on every word of yours, too.
