I'm a man, so I know a lot about a man's body language. One thing I can tell you about men's body language is that everything means something, especially when it comes to relationships. Take for example, when a man places his hands on his hips.Today's website will tell you that this gesture suggests a man is confident in his body.
That's a good guess, but it's also a terrible one. When a man places his hands on his hips, it's because you caught him doing the Macarena and now he's frozen like a deer in headlights, hoping that you'll look away and forget about what you caught him doing.
If a man is trying to get your attention, obviously it's a sign that he likes you, but there are subtle ways he'll do it that you may not notice: slightly separating himself from a group of friends means he wants you to see him as an individual.
Other times, men will go big with their gestures. There are signs for that too. Like, actual signs.
When a man sees a person he's attracted to, his eyebrows will go up and down in quick succession. It generally lasts about a fifth of a second, so it's tough to notice. Just pay close attention to his eyebrows.
If he raises his eyebrows for any longer than that, he's probably a creeper and you should avoid him at all costs.
It's yet another subtle gesture, but when a guy's lips part when he first sees you, it's a clear sign that he's interested.
Or he could have a sinus infection and has to breathe through his mouth. Listen to his voice. Does he sound nasally and stuffed up? If so, then why are you hanging out with him? Do you want to get sick too?
You may find your man touching his face a lot while talking with you. When people are around those they're attracted to, their skin becomes highly sensitive to touch, and It's also his way of dealing with nervous energy.
Unless he's touching his face like Jean-Luc Picard here, then you probably did something really embarrassing.
When a man plays with his glass or canned beverage, it means he's sexually attracted to you. According to Today's website, men will start playing with their glass or can because their circular shape subconsciously reminds them of your breasts.
He'll then try to impress you by crushing the can with his head, but this gesture only seems to attract a specific species known as "bros."
Did you know that when a man spreads his legs while sitting opposite of you, it's an attempt to offer you a look at his goods?
Men do it so often that there's even a name for it, called "manspreading." It seems to happen a lot on subways, and from what I can gather, it's pretty effective because it's all I ever hear women talk about. So keep manspreading, fellas. It's working!
Of course, a kiss on the forehead could also mean certain doom. It all depends on context. Did he go in for a kiss on the lips and just has bad aim? That's adorable. Did you tell him you loved him for the first time and his reaction was to kiss you on the forehead? That's a kiss of death.
