How to know if someone likes you?

How to know if someone likes you?

When we meet someone and we realize that we are attracted, sometimes we are invaded by doubts about whether or not we are reciprocated by the same feeling. We don't want to do or say things we can regret, nor miss the opportunity to come up with something else.

Luckily, there are a number of clues in the body language that can clarify our doubts and thus learn to recognize whether or not we are interested in another person.

20 body language clues that indicate that you like

1. Your pupils dilate. Either you are in a super dark place, or this subtle signal means that you are really interested. Pupillary dilation is a brain response that happens when we are attracted to someone.

2. Raise your eyebrows slightly. People tend to use this subconscious expression to help open their eyes when they like what they see. If you raise your eyebrows very slightly while you are talking, it means that you are interested in what you are saying.

3. Show your front teeth. When someone is comfortable with another person, they can easily make a wide smile, it is a way of flirting and also of showing happiness of being there.

4. Smile with your whole face. Real smiles extend far beyond the mouth: the forehead is raised and the eyes are opened slightly. If your smile involves the entire face, it means that you really care.

5. Lightly lick your lips in a pleasant way (not creepy). When you're attracted to someone, your mouth produces more saliva. As a result, you can lick your lips quickly or press them occasionally.

6. Looks you in the eye, but also the rest of the face. You might think that when someone totally in love with you may find it hard to stop looking into your eyes. But the truth is that we can know that he really likes us if, in addition to looking at our eyes, he looks at the rest of our face, if he spends about 80% of the time looking at your eyes, then the nose and lips successively, it is He really likes you.

7. Take a deep breath when he sees you. When the other person unconsciously takes a deep breath that causes him to swell his chest and shrink his stomach, it is a subconscious way of making his upper body appear wider and his waist looks smaller, two qualities that will make him seem more fit and (from an evolutionary perspective) and therefore more desirable. In other words, it is trying to attract your attention.

8. He leans toward you when you speak. If you find yourself in a disco or a noisy bar, this signal may not make sense. But if you find yourself in a place where you can hear perfectly and lean physically to where you are, it means that you are interested in what you have to say, and in you in general.

9. Put your hands on your hips with your elbows sideways. Because this posture occupies more space than having the arms dropped to the sides, this is a sign of male power that men use to show their physical superiority over other possible "rivals." It is the search for attention. And if he does so while facing you, it is certain that the attention he seeks is yours.

10. It touches your knee or puts your hair behind your ear. When someone initiates physical contact under some pretext, it is a test to see how you respond to the fact of touching you. Because touch is a tool used to test our limits, it could mean that you are only interested in maintaining relationships. But if he really likes you, he could make this gesture very slowly and smile sweetly when he does, which means he wants to take his time to be closer to you.

11. Sits with open legs. Especially in man, with this position he is exposing his masculine parts, which are full of sensitive nerve endings, that is why it is a vulnerable position that could mean that he is willing to lower his guard (literally and emotionally) to get to know you.

12. The angle of your pelvis is facing you. Because the pelvis is an openly sensual area of ​​the body, it often offers signs of interest in coitus, or lack thereof. If the angle of your hips looks away from you, it is probably the last.

13. His feet look towards you. Because the feet are involved in the fight or flight response that is activated when we are in danger, and are largely controlled by the unconscious mind, the feet tend to show us where the heart wants to go.

14. Cross your legs towards you. If you cross your legs in such a way that the upper part of the body rotates where you are not, it is that it feels no interest in you. But if he crosses his legs by turning the rest of his body towards you, that means he likes you and wants to be closer.

15. Approaches you while you are talking. Obviously, it is a clear sign that he wants to be closer to you.

16. He speaks to you looking at your face. This could be a sign of interest and you are keeping all your options open. But don't rush to judge someone just for this. If the other is very shy, he may not look at you much when he speaks, but it would not mean that he is not interested.

17. He touches his neck. The neck, especially the throat, represents communication and vulnerability. If you touch this area during your meetings, it is that he is interested in you and worried about liking you. But be careful, the context can play an important role in these cases. Depending on who we are talking to and the topic we are dealing with, touching your neck can be a sign of dishonesty, so be very careful.

18. Rubs your forearm while talking. The message is strong and clear: he wants your attention, either to impress you or to make sure you're listening, because he really wants to be heard.

19. Walk by your side. If the other person walks two steps ahead of you, it means that she is more worried about herself than you. When someone feels a real interest in the other, try to walk beside them by matching their steps. Unless, of course, you want to go to something or you are walking through a narrow or crowded space.

20. When he takes you by the hand, press his hand against yours. This way of taking the hand as holding it, means that there is a desire to connect. The same goes for interlaced fingers, while an arched palm means that you are afraid or may be hiding something (literally).
