Words can often be deceptive when it comes to the question of whether somebody likes you or not. Body language signs, however, is a much more honest indicator and sometimes, even a giveaway. One way or the other, you can get an idea about whether a person really likes you by observing the way their body works when they are around you.
This article, by pointing out 10 body language signs would help you understand whether the person uttering ‘I like you’ is being honest with you or not.
When you meet a person for the first time, their stance or attitude is the only thing you have. Yet, it can tell you a lot about who or how they might be. Most meetings don’t go beyond the first one but when they do, it’s necessary that you have a prior idea.
2. Subtle head gestures
A person who is interested in the things you are talking about is most likely to subtly, yet significantly, move their head. This is more common with women, but obviously not necessarily so.
3. Smile and blush
Blushing and lively smiles are classic giveaways of a person’s likings towards you. One can’t help but have red cheeks and a broad smile when they are with the one they love or have a crush upon.
Well, not all indicators are positive ones. If you see rudeness in a person the first time they meet you, it’s better to steer clear of them. In most cases, they are only trying to get their ego satisfied.
5. Facial expressions
A person who likes you would, more often than not, show it on their face. They would be excited to be in your company. They may even have a shy smile upon hearing a prospect of being with you.
6. Role play
A person’s attitude towards the role they play while in a relationship with you shows you the real nature of the person.
7. Hand gestures
Hand gestures or movements, like putting the hand inside the waistband or clutching the purse, indicates that the other person likes you.
Obviously, a person staying close to you physically, likes you, and the one cringing away, does not.
9. Speaking with the eyes
Eyes speak more than words. If a person likes you, they’d look you in the eye. If they don’t, they are more likely toroll their eyes.
10. Eyebrow gestures
A person with raised eyebrows is probably being judgemental of you and one with placid eyebrows is more likely to be alright with who you are.
However, these are mostly guesswork. Moreover, the fact that a person likes you doesn’t guarantee that they’d want to have a more intimate relationship. Especially in the case of sexual approaches, you need more surety than these gestures. That is when you need distinct, clearwords like a YES or a NO.
