Prepare to get intimate for a moment! No, not that type of intimate. Most of us think that communication is all about words. But at the end of the day, body language can reveal a lot about a person and how they’re feeling. Most women pay attention to what a guy means when he texts, or what he says in his texts. But what about touch?
Caressing The Face
When a man touches a certain region of your body, it reveals a lot about his intentions. The look of a person is what initially attracts us to them. Not the six-pack abs. Men have a strong need for attractiveness. When a man touches a woman’s face, he is expressing his admiration for them. So when he caresses her face and stares into her eyes, it’s a way for him to soak in all of her beauty and store it in his mind. But sometimes, a face touch is a sign they want to take things one step further. When someone brushes your cheeks or touches your face, they might want to be physically intimate with you. If a guy is stroking your face, it’s safe to assume you’re already at ease with him. We don’t let just anyone put their hands on our faces.
Touching The Back
Your back is divided into two sections, upper and lower. When a man touches the top of your back, he is expressing his support for you. However, the lower back is a whole different story. When a man touches your lower back, it means he’s interested in you. Because the lower back is such a sensitive area of the body, you’ll be more aware of their touch. Oh, and remember to pay attention to how long they touch you. It demonstrates their level of attraction if they touch your lower back for a longer time.
Hands are made to be held, people! Because we use our hands for so many things, reading them can be a little challenging. A high-five or handshake shows positivity, but it has no romantic connotation. But what if it’s accompanied by long eye contact? Well, if that’s the case, it means something different. It’s one of the cutest couple behaviours to interpret. Hand holding demonstrates not only the couple’s closeness, but also the passion they feel for one another.
Playing With Your Locks
The thought of touching the hair as a whole is fascinating. Hair can reveal a lot about someone’s personality. When a man brushes your hair it indicates something different. A soft caress on your hair can indicate that the guy likes your personality. It also suggests that he appreciates your presence. Unfortunately, this isn’t a dead giveaway that he wants to spend a lifetime with you. It does however show that he likes you as a person.
Any Playful Contact
If you’re thinking that a guy touching your back implies nothing, you need to think again. It’s high time you stop overthinking his texts and social media updates, because all you need to know is which body part he touches and what it implies. Every touch a guy makes symbolizes something. It doesn’t mean he’s ready to get down on one knee just yet. It’s a sign that he’s attracted to you if he touches you in general, especially when you’re spending time together. While we can’t be sure exactly how much he likes you, it’s safe to assume that he finds you attractive.
A Gentle Stroke On The Leg
Now things are getting really intimate. Needless to say, this is done with consent. Legs are a huge turn-on for most males. So, if you see a man putting his hands over your thighs or legs, it’s because he really likes you. Now ideally, this is something that happens when the two of you are at a certain comfort level with one another. He’s just hoping you want to take things to the next level.
Squeezing The Shoulder
The meaning of certain touches vary depending on the situation. Touching someone’s shoulder, for example, might show affection. On the other hand, a person may touch your shoulder out of a sense of urgency. They’re concerned for your well-being, and would like you to know they’re here for you. This is usually something that friends do to each other. When a stranger does this, they’re overstepping their boundaries. We often find ourselves falling for a friend. A person we’ve hung around who we’re now crushing over. Any subtle sign that they may like you is something you get excited over. Sorry, ladies, but if he’s placing an arm over your shoulder, or just squeezing it, it doesn’t always scream that he loves you. But hopefully, you’ll find comfort in knowing that he does care about you.
It’s a similar situation when someone puts an arm around you. Something you almost always see on a first date. This usually serves as a symbol of affection. At the same time, it’s often something that friends do with each other. It’s like a sign of admiration for each other.
Body language is everything, folks! Even if he’s not saying anything, he’s talking to you through his movement. People often say how they feel through hand gestures, grins, head tilts, and so on. Fortunately, if your guy isn’t particularly good at expressing himself, there are a variety of clues to look out for. If you’re wondering what it means when a guy is frequently touching you, here’s the answer! He’s probably into you if he’s trying to find a reason or way to touch you as often as possible. It’s a terrific sign of contact if he always touches your hand or can’t stop hitting your foot underneath the table. It shows he wants to be physically close to you. Every day, he hugs you and finds an excuse to touch your face, back, or arms. This is a step up from casually interacting with you and making small talk. He actually likes you and is hoping you’ll return it.
The Length of the Touch Matters
The longer the touch, the deeper the meaning. People can touch in a non-sexual manner for no apparent reason. They can touch you to get your attention, or to signal to you that they’re coming through. If you want to figure out what a man’s thinking, pay attention to how long he touches you. If it’s brief, it may be something very minor or if he touches you for a few seconds longer than usual, it’s a sign he may like you. You can understand why exactly he’s doing it, the timing and placement of when and where he touches you might be beneficial. If you notice he’s doing it while the two of you are alone, he’s probably attracted to you. While this is happening, don’t forget to read his body language. Look for other small, subtle signs in his mannerisms. How is he talking to you? This will clue you into what he’s thinking.
Eye Contact Is Huge
If he’s touching you, make eye contact with him. Is he smiling while caressing you? This will let you know whether or not he truly likes you. Communication is often done through the eyes. If a person is passionate about you, and wants to move things forward, they’re eyes will say so. When we’re on first dates, we often stress over whether or not this person likes us. It often distracts us from actually enjoying our time. If this guy touches you and immediately makes eye contact, chances are he’s into you. Dating is often really hard for certain people. Some of us can read signs better than others.
