Body Language of Women and Men and How to Understand What They Are Saying

I AM GOING TO USE FIVE PHOTOS
of men sending signals with their bodies and five photos of women doing the same.

Let's say that you are a man sitting across from a woman on a park bench and although you both are not talking, your bodies are saying plenty.

Confused? Don't be. Just by learning the fundamentals of "Male and Female Body Language and How to Understand What They Are Saying," you will be able to talk to a girl yards away without getting off of your comfy park bench and visa versa.

A PRETTY GIRL WINKING
has to be one of the most-favorite things a man sees from a woman. But the poor sap many times misinterprets this signal.

What the guy is desperately-wanting this wink to mean is "you are cute," or "go with me," or any other assorted feminine come-on.

But in reality, this wink usually means that the girl's left false eyelash is coming unglued from her eyelid and she has to wink to keep it from falling to the ground.

LEGS CROSSED

rates as high as a wink from a pretty girl. All guys enjoy a pretty pair of legs. But again, this is not her beckoning you to go home with her. This is her way of defending herself and her integrity. She is also saying, "I am conservative, powerful, and will not be run-over," but many times her left leg has fallen asleep and she crossed her legs to restart the circulation.

LEGS APART DOES NOT INDICATE

This pretty lass wants you to sleep with her. Not hardly. Guys you are not using your heads. This girl's body language says, "I am not intimidated by men," or "I am an empowered woman," but in this girl's case she is the catcher for a girl's softball team and has forgotten she is not in a game.

YAWNING
can be very confusing to guys. His first instinct is that a girl who is yawning in his presence had a wild party the night before and needs sleep. Not so. Guys what have you been doing for the past hour? You have told the same old stale jokes you told last week. The girl is bored of your jokes. Not you.

IT'S YOUR THIRD DATE

with this beauty. The wine is cold. The music is playing. All things indicate that you and her are headed for a long night of pure, unadulterated passion. And guys, nothing would make me more happy than to tell you that this is why this hot girl is giggling and crossing her arms. Two things are happening in this photo. And I am sorry to break it to you this way but one, her bra strap has broken and she crossed her arms so you couldn't see anything and two, her cat "Fuzzy," is licking her bare feet. I am so sorry, guys.

HOT GUY RUBS CHIN
under normal circumstances, girls, this body language would mean, "Hey, hot mama, I am into you," and that would be great, but girls, take a closer look. This slick man just finished-off a sub-sandwich before you came into the restaurant, and he is masterfully rubbing some cheese bits he dropped on his chin onto the floor out of your sight.

THIS GQ MODEL-TYPE WITH THE POUTY LIPS

is just your type, ladies. His hair is gelled and styled in today's look for GQ models. His clothes are immaculate and so is his skin. But notice something else about this photo that tells all. He has pushed both hands into his pants pockets. Know what this body language is saying, girls? Don't you wish it meant that he loves to snuggle and engage in pillow talk? Sure you would. But it doesn't. It means he was "burned" by a gold digger a week ago and she took all of his cash. So this signal really means he is protecting his last twenty-bucks, all he had left from the hairstyling, facial and new clothes.

Source

LEANING CHIN INTO BOTH HANDS

could mean that he is so dedicated at his job, that he is inspecting a project he has just finished and wants it to be perfect. Sorry, girls. This hot guy is really soaking-in the porn he looks at everyday and guess what? Today he has found a photo of you on the porn site.

Source

HOT GUY WITHOUT SHIRT

oh yeah, girls. This guy is ready to "rock your world," all night long. Girls, I had to break some bad news to the confused guys, so I am not playing favorites with you. This is what is going on with this photo. This guy loves to gamble. Poker, Roulette, name it. He bets on it. But his luck ran dry last night at a frat brother's apartment when he lost everything.--cash, credit cards, savings. He is dead-broke and his buddy was good enough to allow him to sleep in his shower because he was evicted from his apartment for being two months late on his rent.

SCRATCHING HEAD, STARING

is a "double whammy," girls. This guy is scratching his head and staring for two reasons: One, he is scratching his head out of shock and two, staring at you because he cannot figure out why a girl as hot as you chose him for a date. Then it hits him. You struck out with the previous four guys in the photos above. You do not argue with him at all.

DO YOU WANT ME

(girls), to tag along with you on your date to act as your interpreter of your date's body language?

Just asking.

Kenneth, you may well jest, but there's a lot of confusion about body language between the sexes. Men in particular, have never been more confused about women, as they are these days of equality and political correctness. I guess we gain some and we lose some. Loved this, it was fun to read.

Well done!!

Here's my questions for you and anyone else who'd take a shot at answering it. Why do so many people use those little gestures to let the other person know they're interested? Why not just go over and talk to the person? My guesses are they're to shy or afraid of outright rejection. I say get it over with and talk to him or her.

Funny and interesting hub, it does make you think about body language and how both men and women interpret it. Nice job!

Kenneth, I loved your hub! The “pretty girl winking" opener was a great introduction to set the tone, and closing by promoting a book written by an ex-FBI agent specializing in reading body language summarized the content perfectly! Kudos!! My only wish after reading your creativity was a longer entertaining narrative of the misinterpretations of body language by men and women alike. - Thumbs up!

Hello, tobusiness,

I agree with you. Men were confused enough, but now with the political-correctiveness, we are a bundle of nerves around women in general.

I like sheilamyers remark of why not just go over and talk to the one you are interested in.

Well, I did that many times and felt the sting of rejection so many times that I felt like quitting school and moving into a cave.

No rejections there, except maybe the wildlife who were there first.

Kenneth

Dear Sheila,

I agree. And as I commented about your comment (to) tobusiness, I did walk over and try to chat with a lot of girls when I was in high school. Rejected on the spot. I felt like quitting school and moving into a cave in the woods.

It was tough. Some girls in my day felt as if they were queens and I was dirt. Plain, but honest truth.

Anyway, dear Sheila, thanks for stopping by. And thanks for your comment.

Hi, BNadyn,

I agree 100%. Talk about self-conscious. After publishing this, I watched every move that my arms, legs, feet, and face made. Too much work. People can just take me as I am.

Thanks for the input. Come back soon.

Hi, Tashaonthetown, (nice name)

Thank you from the heart, for your nice remark on this hub. Just what if, on the outside chances, that some Hollywood bachelor reads this and gets his dream girl and mentions me on David Letterman?

Oh, my. What have I started?

Ken: For you or anyone who feels like dirt when people slam them down because they think they're better than the next person, you're not dirt, they are.

Great insight and understanding of such body language. I am quite impressed with the photos and so interestingly explained in detail.


Kenneth Avery 2 years ago

Hi, DDE,

Thanks for the wonderful comment. I have spent hours studying body language of people. Here is a quiz for you:

If a guy is rubbing his head, has he: 1. Been hit with a brick or 2. Cannot figure out why his girlfriend left him

If you pass this, you can join me in my Body Language Investigations and we can help confused people learn what is being said to and about them.

Is it a deal?
