So, you’ve got your eye on that cutie. Your heart beats fast when you see them, they’re constantly on your mind, and you want to get to know every little detail about them. You think to yourself, Crap! Not again! Another emotional rollercoaster! Why can’t I just be a robot? It’s easy to catch feelings when it’s a sudden jolt. So, you know you’re definitely hooked. But, the next question is, Are they into me?
Psych2Go shares with you 10 ways to read someone’s body language to tell if they are attracted to you:
1. Large pupils
Our pupils dilate when we’re in dim settings or when we see someone who stimulates a strong reaction out of us. If you want to use this as an indicator, it’s probably not a good idea to pull them in a dark alleyway (because that’s also creepy). It might seem promising if you see their pupils grow large after stargazing. But, just kidding! It was probably just the terrible lighting.
2. Body leans towards you
When someone is attracted to you, they have a tendency to lean towards you as a way to pay more attention and get closer to you. It’s a great way to hint that they’re interested in you. But, I’m afraid this might not be this case if the two of you are in a loud room where you have to shout to hear each other. Sorry! Unless you two have microphones clipped to you where you can hear each other perfectly, they’re probably only leaning towards you because they can’t read lips.
3. Feet are pointed towards you
Our feet act like a compass. So, when someone points their feet towards you, it means that they’re not going anywhere else anytime soon. It’s a sign that shows they want to stick around longer to be with you. You know, unless their feet are glued to the floor. Then, that’s just downright unfortunate.
4. Walks beside you
When we’re attracted to someone, we tend to make sure our walking pace matches theirs. Being in sync with someone step by step indicates that they want to be by your side rather than ahead or behind you that creates distance. Just make sure that the person you’re interested in isn’t imitating you to practice for mime school, because that might be the real reason.
5. Grazes your arm
If someone is attracted to you, they’ll use any excuse in the book to touch you, even if it’s just a slight graze on your arm. This is an indicator that they want to make sure you know that they’re close to you and that you’re also paying attention to them. Unless they’re giant attention seekers to begin with…then, I’m afraid you’re only dealing with a needy brat.
6. Holds your hand
If they’re reaching out to hold your hand, then it’s an indicator that they’re into you. When your fingers are closely and securely interlocked with theirs, it shows that they want to protect you and be there for you. But, if you’re reaching out for their hand and they pull it back, then they’re just not that into you. Can you say #foreveralone?
7. Eyebrow raising
People tend to raise their eyebrows when they are intrigued. So, chances are if they raise their eyebrows at you, it means that they’re interested in what you have to say. Unless they’re just trying to get their facial exercises done for the day.
8. Good standing posture
When someone is attracted to you, they usually adopt a good standing posture around you. This is to attract your attention to them that makes them more physically appealing. Men, for instance, tend to stand taller to demonstrate their masculinity. If the person is slinking back or making themselves smaller towards you, then I’m afraid they just don’t see you that way.
9. Touches their face and hair
Men tend to touch their facial hair and women often touch their hair to attract attention on them. When someone touches their face and hair in front of you, it means that they care about how they look around you. Unless they’re narcissistic and care about how they look 24/7, then they’re probably more into themselves than you…you might want to run away while you still can.
10. They look back at you after you leave
If the both of you part ways and they look back at you after you leave, then it shows that you’re still on their mind and that they want to stay with you a little longer. This one might be hard to read, especially since your back will be turned towards them. If you want to go all out, you can hire a friend to videotape the two of you as you part ways on the down-low. Buuut, that might be going just a little tooo farr.
