Are you getting mixed signals from a guy? At one point of time you feel he is so into you and the next you see him behaving like a complete stranger. The person who said that it is difficult to read women didn’t know anything about men. Fret not, even if he doesn’t say it loud, there are male body language signs of attraction that you can read and be sure of his feelings. We give you 18 signs that you can look for in his body language and know if he secretly likes you.
18 male body language signs of attraction
Men are pros at hiding their feelings. They will not let you know how they feel till they are sure of it themselves. Women, being gifted with sixth sense, are able to pick up the trails, but are never sure of it either. For decoding the feelings code in case of men, first look at the right place.
Women tend to focus on what the guy says rather than how he subconsciously behaves and that is where the catch is. Body language always has a tendency to give you away and these 18 body language signs will tell you whether he is attracted to you or not.
1. He will make eye contact
Men have a tendency to look into the eyes of the woman they like. They believe in using fewer words and saying it with their eyes. If he makes eye contact with you throughout your conversation, it means that he is interested in you and wants to know more about you. If his eyes quickly go to your lips and back to your eyes, it is not just the conversation he is interested in.
2. He will shyly pull away eye contact when caught
Some men are shy to express their feelings. They might show a second’s courage to make eye contact and then quickly pull away because of either fear or shyness. When you talk to him, if he shyly looks down and gives a slight smile, he is interested in you but his shy self is not allowing him to show it in front of you.
3. You make him smile
No matter how bad your joke is, he is going to smile. It isn’t because he found your joke funny, but because it came out of you. You were the reason that brought a smile to his face. We usually have a tendency to smile at things that make you happy and in this case, that thing/person is you. Infact, you can use this opportunity to compliment his smile and make him blush, right there!
4. He will go out of his way to give you attention
If you see him having a chat with his friends and he leaves them just to talk to you, he is trying to show you who he would rather like to spend his time with. He is going to give more attention to you and he will make sure you realise it.
5. He will take a deep breath
Body language signs are often subconscious, giving away what is in your mind. If he lets out a few deep breaths when you pass by, it be one of those subconscious signs telling you that you take his breath away. At times if you are looking good or different from normal (something which he might like), he will take a deep breath to sink in what he just saw. He might not compliment you, but that deep breath says it all.
6. He fixes his hair
Men have a tendency to subconsciously fix their hair when they see a girl they like. All of a sudden they seem to get conscious about their looks. They want to make an impression in front of the girl and they start it by fixing their hair. Another reason for fixing their hair could be because they want to get your attention and they do it by appearing to fix their hair so that you look at them.
7. He touches his face a lot
While talking to you, you might notice him touching his cheeks and chin a lot. Some men get conscious and nervous while talking and thus tend to touch their face a lot. It is because they start to feel their skin stretching when they are nervous.
8. He will make himself noticeable
You both could be involved with different groups of friends or maybe in different departments. He will find a way to make you notice him. He might start talking very loudly or laugh loudly at even the lamest joke when you are around. It is because he wants you to notice him even when he is not talking to you. He wants you to see him when he is in his comfort zone.
9. He will look at your lips
There are some things that men cannot hide, even if they think they are pros at it. While talking to you, he will look at your face and most importantly, your lips. He will stare at them for a split second, or maybe longer, depending on the intensity of his feelings for you. If he looks at your lips, you are not just a friend or a colleague to him, he is attracted to you. Here are some signs to read if your colleague is interested in you.
10. His feet will point towards you
A study says that we subconsciously point our feet towards the direction we want them to go. Notice him when he is in a group or even alone. In which direction do his feet point? If they are directed towards you, then he is planning on coming to you or thinking about it in his head. It is a good heads-up for you because you already know where his feet are heading.
11. He will lean in
While having a one-on-one chat with you, he will lean in. His body language signals that he wants to be close to you and what is a better way than doing it by leaning when he talks to you? He wants you to feel the spark and chemistry between the two of you.
12. He will fix his clothes
He knows that you are not impressed yet and will leave no chance to not impress you. He will fix his clothes and make sure that his shirt is tucked in. He might also nervously play with his buttons or cufflinks. It is because he doesn’t exactly know how to behave when you are around.
13. He raises his eyebrows
Again, raising eyebrows is one of those men’s body language signs that appear subconsciously. They tend to raise their eyebrows when they see something that attracts them or something that they like. This explains why they raise their eyebrows when they see a hot girl passing by. Does he raise his eyebrows when he sees you too?
14. His lips part a bit
While seeing you or talking to you, he will could go in a trance or start imagining things (that include you both) and his lips will part a bit. It usually happens when you lose control and start getting submissive to the person you like. This is the same case that is happening here, he is becoming submissive to you.
15. There will be many ‘accidental touches’
Your hands didn’t brush against each other’s accidentally, but because it was meant. These accidents are planned by him. It may be because he wants to hold your hand but can’t because of the consequences or because he wants you to feel the kind of attraction he is feeling towards you. Whatever the reason may be, the bottom line is that he is attracted to you.
16. He will let you see him checking you out
There is a term called ‘visual voyaging’ where he will look around and check you out till he stops at one particular part of you that he adores he most. You catch him checking you out and smile to yourself thinking that you caught him. Don’t be fooled. He got caught because he wanted you to notice that he is checking you out. It is his way of letting you know his feelings through his actions.
17. His nostrils flare
Now this part is the most unromantic and unsexy part of his body language but truth be told, his nostrils will flare when he sees you. It is because he will want to seem open and inviting in front of you. This is indeed one important body language signs that indicates his affection for you.
18. He will not touch his phone
One more way of finding out whether he likes you or not is by noticing how often he touches his phone when you are around. He will want to be on his best behaviour in front of you and will not do anything to offend you. If he really likes you, he will want to know more about you rather than what his phone has to say. He will prioritise you over his phone (at least for now).
He makes you feel special and these body language signs have made it clear that he likes you. If you also like him, then go ahead and let him know. If you are not sure, go with the flow and see how it goes. If you don’t feel anything for him, don’t freak out. Let him know and he will understand, but make sure you say it through verbal communication and not body language signs, because he may not be able to pick up the signs. Think it through and go ahead with it.
