The Body Language Which Will Reveal the Truth About Your Relationship
Published in Apr 2021 / Updated in May 2021
Human communication is made up not only of verbal language but also of non-verbal signals. Body language is often forgotten in relationships, and if you want to have a successful relationship, you need to understand your partner’s body language.
In this article, we will be breaking down some subtle body language signals that reveal a LOT about your relationship.
The first sign is when someone gazes into your eyes for longer than is considered “normal.” If you notice that after a while, this action repeats, lucky you, it’s a clear sign that they like you!
During a conversation, if you notice that the other person is trying to turn their body towards you, they are probably interested in you. Even if they’re crossing their legs, you’ll notice their toecap turned toward you as well.
If they like you, women will subconsciously try to bend their body toward yours while keeping their back straight, just to make their figure look better.
As for men, their goal is to look bigger and stronger. They try to straighten their bodies up and flare their arms. They may well even lean on a wall with their hand at the level of your shoulder during conversion and try to get into your personal space.
Another sign that if your hands frequently touch by chance without any real reason, there’s a high chance that this person has an interest in you.
A wide smile isn’t something we see on men very often, so if you catch a man wearing a nice, ear-to-ear smile around you, it certainly means that he’s happy to be around you, according to psychologist Patti Wood.
Pay attention to their eyes after they tell a joke. If they look at you waiting for laughter or a reaction, this is a crystal clear sign of interest.
They would not do their best for someone they do not like, would they?
If you have noticed that someone uses the same intonations and gestures as you, it is probably not because they are a fan of yours or are just teasing you. It is most likely that they actually like you, so they started to copy you subconsciously!
If your partner’s trying to avoid being intimate with you, their kisses get quick and rather formal.
And when it’s bedtime, they turn away from you and sleep in the opposite direction. This is a sign that you definitely should not turn a ignore if you want to maintain a healthy relationship!
Most men know the feeling: you try to say something to a woman, but you find it hard to talk to her. You find her body turned away, she rarely looks into your eyes, and she always keeps a distance. These, of course, are serious signs that she is uninterested.
If your partner meets all of your jokes with an insincere smile, it could be a sign that you are not interesting to them at all!
During conversion, if you notice body blocks from your partner, like crossed arms and legs, you may need to rethink whether your relationship is going well.
If a man’s voice becomes indistinct and his eyes are always down, this is also something that is worth paying attention to.
It should also be concerning if a man doesn’t follow the fundamental rules of etiquette (opening doors for you, for example).
On the other hand, if you notice your girl talks more than usual on her phone, it might mean that something is not right.
If you fall behind during a walk and your partner doesn’t spend the effort to look back and slow down, it could mean that your relationship is not in a good place.
When people are in love, they tend to show care to each other. If your partner points out that your hair is messy or your clothes are wrinkled without trying to fix it themselves, you might want to think about whether there is real harmony between the two of you.
In the end, you should know that these body language signals are not stiff rules. They are only indicators that you should pay attention to if you want to better understand the relationship between you and your significant other.
