ROMANTIC BODY LANGUAGE
We spoke about body language in general – Body Language – AIRC238
How can you know when someo ne is attracted to you? What are the body language signs?
To/a glance – see quickly on purpose = ojear, echar un vistazo. eg. I quickly glanced at my watch to see the time
To/a glimpse – see qui ckly by chance or luckily = alcanzar a ver, vislumbrar eg. He caught a glimpse of the famous actress as she was leaving the hotel
To/a gaze – mirar fijamente – with love or surprise because you are thinking
To/a stare – mirar fijamente
To/a flush – ponerse colorado, sonrojarse, ruborizarse
To/a toss your head/hair – sacudir – the horse tossed it’s head
Also. toss a ball, toss a coin, toss a salad, toss in your sleep. (I don’t give a toss!)
To fancy someone
To come on to someone / to make a pass at someone / to hit on someone
Signs that someone may be interested in you romantically:
Smiling and looking into your eyes
Glancing at you sideways
Keeps glancing towards you (surreptitiously)
Holding your gaze (this can be quite subtle – maybe quickly looks away)
Eyes narrowing slightly
More alert posture
Body turning towards you
Matching – body posture may matching yours – ‘mirroring’
Tossing hair (more female)
Open body language – holds arms so that you see the insides of wrists and shows palms of hands
Mouth slightly open
Speaks more softly than usual
When seated – tucks one leg under the other with knee pointing towards you / frequent crossing and uncrossing of legs / plays with shoe. Shoe dangles – more female.
Pretends she or he doesn’t notice you?
Are you good at detecting when someone fancies you?
Do you sometimes watch strangers and try to guess their relationship?
Who’s better at reading romantic body language – men or women?
When is it appropriate to touch someone you don’t know well?
Are you aware of your own body language as well as others’?
…and now it’s your turn to practise your English.
