The body language used and what it reflects
According to Andrea Sytrash, a relationship and dating expert, and the author of “He’s Just Not Your Type (And That’s a Good Thing)” states that a new relationship is full of possibilities and discoveries, not only of our partner, but of ourselves, needs and desires, and wants as well. In other words, the start of a new relationship is usually exciting, full of passion, but sometimes full of shy and distant looks as well. If you are in a new relationship and you still cannot understand your partner fully, then this article is for you.
These are 5 of the most popular signs in the body language.
According to specialists in body language, eye contact in an important communication tool. Maintaining eye contact with a person is able to repair a troubled relationship or destroy a relationship without a single word being said. Scientifically speaking, eye contact is the essence of non-verbal communication. In case of a new relationship, eye contact can give you signs of how your partner feels towards you. If he/she make eye contact with you, and maybe, holds your gaze for a little bit longer than supposed to, then be sure that your partner likes you. However, if he/she doesn’t maintain eye contact with you while speaking, then know that your partner is distant, disengaged. It’s time to talk!
The body position
Your partner’s body posture and position can give you a clear idea about the extent to which he/she is interested in you. Try to pay attention to your partner’s body during conversations and walks. If they turn their body towards you during the conversation, if they lean or bend their body towards you, then this is a good sign. Nonetheless, you would notice if your partner lost interest in you. This is the case when your partner tries to keep a distance between you both, avoid intimacy, turns to the other side while conversing, or sleeping. If this is the case, then the danger bell is ringing! It’s time to react!
Smiles and touches
According to the psychologist Patti Wood, men stop smiling widely at a certain age, so if you see your man wearing a big smile next to you, that means that he is happy and things are going fine. Moreover, it is believed that genuine smiles help maintaining a strong and a strong bond with any person. Consequently, if your partner and you smile to each other each time your eyes meet, then this is a good sign. Also, if you notice that your hands touch each other occasionally and with no real reason, then this is an obvious sign of him/her liking you. On the contrary, once a person loses interest in their partner, they stop smiling as frequent as they used to do. Pay attention to the smiles you get when you tell them a joke. If they are strained and insincere, then it’s time to seriously think about your relationship.
Jokes and humor
A sense of humor is an engaging trait in one’s character. If your partner is telling jokes, or genuinely reacting to your jokes that means that there things in common between you. Having things in common isn’t that necessary, but still, it can be considered as extra points for your relationship. When engaging in conversation, discussions, or just trying to break the ice between both of you using a sense of humor, pay attention to your partner’s reaction. They may engage in the conversation, respond to the joke in a humorous way, as well as responding to it in a negative way. If this happens, try to examine if the joke you have made, itself, annoyed your partner. If not, then, unfortunately something is wrong.
Etiquette and behavior
Since we live within a society, there are rules and etiquettes to follow in order to co-exist with others. Those etiquettes and rules are to be present even with your partner, especially if you are in a new relationship. Try to test this by falling behind during a walk and check if your partner will notice, slow down or turn around to check on you. If he/she does not look back it means that there are things you have to talk about. Also, you should check if things are fine between both of you if he does not follow simple rules such as letting you go first, opening the door, speaking in a distinct voice and edgy speech.
However, these are just signs sent unconsciously by your partner. Make sure you understand each sign of their body language and use it to develop your relationship.
