Reading his Body language..

Good morning darlings :)

Can't tell whether the object of your affections is into you or not? Some men just have a hard time verbally expressing their feelings, so don't take it out on him.

Kevin Hogan, Psy.D., author of Irresistible Attraction, explains:

"Men are conditioned to suppress their emotions, and as a result they're not as good as women at expressing their feelings,"

Don't fret though, because you can still figure what your man is really trying to say simply by observing their body language:

He turns his chest toward you

If his pecs are turned towards you, it definitely means you're on his radar.
Reason being: evolution and ego. Just like a gorilla commands attention by pounding his chest and roaring, when a guy's upper torso points your way it means he want you to notice his presence.

Scuttlebutt: Something like King Kong *insert gorilla growl here*
Prattle: Me Tarzan, you mine.


He slouches

Once you've engaged your man in conversation, he'll start loosening up and slumping forward, rounding his shoulders in an attempt to look smaller. This makes him seem more approachable as if to say 'I'm on your level, let's connect.' This relaxed stance (otherwise known as "crouching") means he's vulnerable yet comfortable in your presence.

Scuttlebutt: You know... that just reminded me of the dog training DVD i own.. The trainer says that you should always go down to the same level with your dog. *gasps* Does that mean they think they are on a higher level than we are???
Prattle: I know sometimes I prefer doggie company to human company, sometimes they make better friends! A man slumping forward in my conversations means he's about to fall asleep.
Scuttlebutt: Bwaahahahhaaaaaa!!!


He looks slightly shocked

Even if he tries to act nonchalant, chances are that when he's wowed by you it will register on his face. Keep an eye-out for any signs - a slight eyebrow lift and surprised look whilst talking to you. Apparently, this is a subconscious reaction, and that he likes what he sees and wants to take it all in.

Scuttlebutt: I like this one better...
Prattle: He's taking you in with ALL of his eye parts, even the parts that don't "see"!


He fusses over you

Let's say that you're both having a conversation and he suddenly reaches out to brush the hair out of your eyes. This gesture of fussing over you is good sign that he's interested in getting to know you better; and it also gives him an excuse touch you by briefly entering your personal space. Take note of where his hands tend to wander —if his intentions are sincere, he'll respectfully avoid areas like your waist or chest.

Scuttlebutt: I hope he starts respectfully touching these areas after a period of time *smirks*
Prattle: Awwww! Mr. Prattle is pretty touchy-feely. It makes me feel like he's taking care of me.


Keep an eye out for these signs and, before you know it, you'll have your target twisted around your little finger in no time!

Thanks honey I needed the laugh, think it's that easy? To get a man wrapped around finger?

@Siren: I actually don't think its that easy but these are supposed to be signs that he already is interested in you. So if you see him doing a gorilla or puppy move on you, it means he's interested. LOL.
