Body Language Signs to Tell if He’s Into You
Things to pay attention to the next time you meet up with a guy.
Dating apps have made it so much easier for people to connect. Some of my friends have even found love that way, but for me, I still have a hard time flirting and going out on dates. Still, it’s worth it to find that special someone. I wouldn’t say that I’m a “serial dater”, but lately, I’ve really been putting myself out there to try to find the right guy. The trouble is, how do you know that he’s into you?
In my experience, I’ve found that some guys are hard to read, and I’ve wasted way too much time on potential Romeos who had no real interest in a relationship. Over the course of many dates, I’ve noticed that there are certain signals a guy can give with his body language. These signals have helped me to figure out if a guy is really into me or if he’s just looking for a hookup. Here are some things that you should pay attention to the next time you meet up with a guy after swiping right.
What are his eyes doing?
A guy’s eyes can tell you A LOT about what he’s thinking. Eye contact is good, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s feeling you. I’ve found that many guys will make eye contact to be polite or as a power move. Pay attention to how his eyes move while you’re talking to him. Is he looking at your entire face? A guy who is into you will look at your entire face while you’re talking, from your forehead to your chin. The first time I noticed a guy doing this I got insecure – don’t be insecure! His interest in looking at all your features is a good thing, and it means that he’s interested.
Does he try to touch you?
This one depends on your comfort level. A guy who is interested in you will definitely try to touch you (in an appropriate way!) while you’re out on a date. Whether it’s touching your arm while you share a laugh or reaching out to touch your hand to show concern, physical contact is a sure sign that he’s into you. Figure out what you’re comfortable with when it comes to flirty touching and use it as a tool to determine if he likes you.
Where are his toes pointed?
This is a classic little trick that I learned in my Psychology 101 class at school. I’m glad I stuck through the class and started applying it to my dating life. If a guy is truly interested in what you’re saying, his legs and his toes will be pointed in your direction. If he’s smiling and nodding his head, but you notice that he has turned his body (specifically his toes) away from you, you might want to question how sincere he’s being. Recently, I had a guy tell me while we were chatting on an app that he liked the same music that I did. When we met up, he said all of the right things, but I could tell that he hadn’t been telling the truth by the way he crossed his legs and angled his body away from me. When I asked, he admitted that he had just done research online.
These simple little tricks have done wonders in helping me read the signals of the guys I date. It’s nice to know when someone you like has started to feel the same way about you Don’t forget to try and give them little hints back to let them know you like them, too!
