With men, it is really common for actions to speak louder than words. Understanding his physical cues can sometimes be just as important as what he is saying to you. Here are some signs to look out for that there may be more to what he’s saying:
1. He’s distracted
If he’s constantly checking his phone or shifting his eyes to look over your shoulder, he’s probably not as interested in you as you’re hoping. Distraction is an indicator of disinterest, so even if he says, “I’m really interested in how your day went,” you can bet he’s more interested in the latest email that’s popped up in his inbox, his Facebook newsfeed, or the brunette sitting behind you.
2. He has his hands on his hips or arms crossed
Both of these postures signify a defiant attitude. So, if he stands this way he may actually disagree with you when he says he agrees. Ask him if how he’s feeling and invite him to share his feelings in a positive way.
3. He blinks or blushes
Blinking frequently is a surefire sign that he’s interested in you, even if it might be too soon to admit it. Blushing sounds more obvious, but it’s also a sign that he’s embarrassed about how much he likes you!
4. He’s slouching
If he seems slouchy or hunched over, he may have had a bad day at work or had a fight with his boss and he’s feeling sheepish. Often times, men don’t want to share their stories of weakness because they’re afraid of looking less-than-strong, so they won’t reveal the entire story. Ask him how his day went and you may get him to open up!
