In order to pick up the signs of body language when a guy is interested in you, it requires that you pay attention to the context, other signs of interest, and also how well you know each other. Some guys flirt more through their body language than others. Knowing the types of guys you are dealing with and what specific body language may mean can help you differentiate casual signs of interest from those that are just the guy’s habit.
1. Mirroring Behaviour.
Mirroring body language is not just limited to the signs a woman is taking a liking to someone but it also applies to a man. A man will watch the level of interest communicated through the other person’s body language and will try to imitate that; it helps build equal rapport. When a man sense that the person they like is uninterested in them through either arm crossed or lack of smiling, he will also try to mirror the same body language. He’s paying attention to your current interest level and mirror body language is a way for him to calibrate his. Contrary to popular beliefs where mirroring body language has been a sign of playfulness, it is actually not the case; people mirror body language as a way of trying to establish an equal rapport.
2. Maintains Eye Contact.
He tries to maintain eye contact with you to hint something. This helps them gauge how much interest they have from you. If you look away, they might think you’re not interested or that you’re shy. But if you keep an eye contact with them, they will know that they have your interest too. None the less, trying to maintain eye contact is a sign a guy wants you to know that you have their attention. As such, they will be able to proceed forward. However, do note that shy guys may avoid eye contact out of nervousness even if they are interested in you.
