With all the confusion surrounding the language of love, many men would find it easier to learn Japanese.So when women give more mixed signals than a traffic junction, men try to pare the body -data down to the basics, relying on their intuition… So how do they interpret what you’re trying to tell them? The Eye Line It all starts with the eyes, so be warned: if you’ve looked across a crowded room and held his gaze for more than five seconds, he thinks you’re interested.Sure, you may have been staring because he reminded you of someone, or he had a big piece of spinach in his teeth, but you held his gaze, and that’s enough of a signal for him to consider making a move.
Most men will take it as they see it: if you’re, say, fully engaged in conversation with your friends and not giving any of yourself to the room, he’s most likely to think you’re not interested and stay away.
Good news if you want him to; less so if you were hoping he’d pluck up courage and come over to talk.
Body Talk If you’re on a date, or have simply just met someone in a social situation, the guy you’re with is going to be looking for signs of interest.
If you’re interested, too, this is when it’s best to stop being too cool for school and abide by some of the conventional rules of the flirting game.
It may seem obvious, but laughing at his jokes, smiling while he talks and touching his hair or arm are all signals he can read loud and clear.
Take it a little further and reach out to him physically and he’ll take that as a flashing green light.
Touch his hand lightly, place your face close to his, and widen your eyes when he’s talking: these are all signs he’ll have no trouble reading.
Equally, if your eyes are wandering, glazed over or just plain dead while he’s talking, that’s not going to go unnoticed, either.
Most men have at some point felt the distance of a disinterested woman, and know when they’re on a losing streak.
