Touches signify how much he likes you
It’s a bit tricky if a guy starts getting physical with you especially when you haven’t known each other for long. Nonetheless, When a man likes you,he will touch you to exercise his seductive power and in the hope that he will build a connection with you. After shaking your hands, a man who likes you will use the power of touch in different ways e.g. hugging you tight and reaching out for your arm.
1. Patting your back and holding your waist
When a man like you, he will intentionally or unintentionally, pat your lower back as a sign of dominance or hold your waist to express his superiority in love. Be very careful with a guy who likes touching your lower back as he might be a pervert.
2. One of the signs is seductive handshake
A man who likes you will not shake hands with you as if he’s greeting a 90-year-old woman. His handshake is competitive and strong. If he touches you lightly on your forearm, he likes you and wants to create a romantic connection, socially or professionally. He does this so you can see him as a knight in shining armor you have always dreamt of. If you are keen, you will notice that he takes your hands with softness and lingers for a few seconds as you make introductions. Even as your hand goes, he will want to slide it out of his.

He will use facial expressions to show his attraction to you
Did you know that human beings can use more than a thousand facial expressions? Nevertheless, men don’t use much of these non-verbal signs as compared to women. Here are some of the facial expressions you should expect from a friend who like you romantically.
5. Nodding- it means he is attentive
This non-verbal behavior lets you know that he is in agreement with what you are saying (sometimes he will just agree to please you). It means that he is listening keenly and wants you to continue with the conversation. He may also do it to encourage you
6. One of the signs os a funny face
Some men communicate their sexual interests in hilarious ways- not necessarily by smiling. You will catch him wearing a funny face to show you that he is not so serious. He will try all sorts of funny expressions just to steal your heart catch your attention. A funny face is a discreet way of flirting with you and he wants you to feel the vibe and respond by smiling.

7. Smiling is the body language of appeasement
Perhaps he hardly smiles but you catch him always smiling at you when your eyes meet — he likes you. A smile is purposeful and he doesn’t smile in default. Before telling you how hot you look, he will smile, and since smiling is contagious, you might smile back and he will know instantly that his chances of success have been raised. Smiling is a sign that he means no harm and so you have nothing to be afraid of. He simply wants you to feel comfortable around him.
8. Raising his eyebrows — he likes you even before he knows it
When a man likes you, he will raise his eyebrows the first time he sees you and feels interested in you. This behavior lasts for microseconds and sometimes you might not notice if he is not so close. It happens subconsciously with any guy who feels attracted to a woman. Lifting the brows opens the eyes widely, making them brighter and bigger. This is the first attraction body language, and it is very reliable and if you spot one, you will know that he likes you even before he admits. For a cheeky guy, he will extend it deliberately for you to get the message right.

9. Crotch display is sign he’s attracted to you
Some men do not care whether they are in public or not. Do not be surprised when he moves the front part of his trousers to showcase his masculinity. He can go ahead and spread his legs as his sits down to show off his ‘sword’. If he is the seductive type, he will touch himself in front of you. Often, he will adjust his belt just to draw attention and make you look what’s down there. All these signs say that he wants you sexually.

If his lips open up and the nostrils start flaring, that’s a sign that he’s interested in you. This is a friendly expression and a way of telling you that you are beautiful and would want to get close to you.
11. Eyes that communicate a sexual attraction
You may not notice some body language signs, but you cannot fail to recognize a guy with sexual intent through his eyes. His way of looking into your eyes is totally different from the way he looks at the waiter. Sex eyes can be a sign that he wants to see more of you, particularly in bed. You see, the way to the soul is through someone’s eyes and that is the reason he maintains eye contact so you can feel what he feels- his thoughts will become your thoughts. He can look at your eyes one at a time or switch from right to left, and after a while, he may start staring at your lips meaning that he would love to kiss you.
12. Man-spreading stand
Have you ever seen a woman who likes a guy? She sits while crossing her legs because she wants her hips noticed but a man does the opposite. He starts to show his attraction if he sits or stands while keeping his legs apart. But his way of spreading the legs is manly and not like that of a woman waiting to make love. He makes sure that his private parts have enough breathing space.
13. Hands on the hips is a flirty body language
This kind of pose is meant to flaunt his body size and represent confidence. The gesture is also suggestive because his hands will be pointing at his manly assets or areas he would want to be touched. He is, of course, proud of his body and wants you to notice. Additionally, he will play with his jacket’s buttons in case he feels nervous and will often tend to take off his clothes unconsciously.
14. Touching his beard while looking at you- the sign of a seducer
If he’s attracted to you, he will constantly stroke his beard and mustache with his fingers, and at times rub his earlobes. These are signs of nervousness, sexual attraction, and excitement. When a guy is attracted to you, his skin tends to be more sensitive to stimulation and touch, especially his face. Other signs that your friend likes you include touching his lips because it feels good. Perhaps he wants to put the idea in your head that kissing you would be a good thing.

15. Fidgeting- he is nervous
A nervous man cannot hide his signs of attraction as he loses control of his movements. You will see him walking uncontrollably with a restless leg syndrome. He constantly fidgets with his fingers because your presence simply blows out his mind and he can’t think straight. When guys are interested in women they tend to play with circular objects because it reminds them of women’s breasts. What you watch him doing is a leakage of the things going o in his mind. Other times he will be squeezing the glass and take a prolonged sip of the drink as he stares at you.
16. Leaning back – a confident guy with an attraction for you
A guy who is confident enough lies back and takes a relaxed position, whether standing or sited. He makes himself comfortable by letting his arms hang by his sides. This is a gesture by a man who is approachable. On the other side, a shy guy tends to lean forward while folding his arms. He only lacks confidence but is surely interested in you.
17. Posture- straight back and tilted head
The first thing you notice in a guy who is interested in you as he walks towards you is the way he aligns his body. To show you that he is approachable, he straightens his back and tilts his head back, slightly. His chest comes forward while the shoulders stay back. However, there is a thin line between being confident and desperate, but a guy who likes you will pose in a way that makes him attractive to you. He does this just to impress the woman of his attraction.

18. Taking as much space as he can
Your friend will try to be spacious at any place. When sitting in the lobby, he will want to take up space that will allow him to kick his legs out and lean back to stay comfortable. He subconsciously marks his territory and would not want anyone else interrupting you two.
19. Indifference- he likes you and is in control of his actions
This is one of the best ways your friend will show you that he doesn’t care about anything else except what between the two of you. It means he is calm and cannot be distracted by other things. He wants you to know that he will be in control if you give him a chance. Because women prefer men who know how to stay on top of things, he will try to be a master of situations and your life as well just to have a chance to be with you.
20. Trying to get your attention
There are a lot of movements a guy can make to grab your attention. Take for instance adjusting his tie- he prays silently that you may notice his expensive suit. He might turn into a clown or start talking loudly when in a crown to make sure that he stands out and be seen the woman he likes. Another way he can attract your attention is by leaving his friends and standing somewhere secluded to have you looking at him. These gestures are synonymous with the female body language of licking the lips. They are clear signs of romantic attraction.

21. Fixing his messed up hair
The gesture he will use to smooth his hair depends on what style looks more flattery. He will do this involuntarily and more times than you expect. The next time you come out of the restroom, rest assured he will have his hands on his hair. These expressions simply mean that he finds you fascinating.
22. Pulling up the socks
He is preening for you if he fiddles with his socks or constantly pulls them up. But why would he adjust his socks when you are around? He is trying to make his best looks and win you over.
23. The mysterious look- the strongest sign of attraction
Believe it or not, a man can be attracted to you and not smile at all. Nevertheless, his way of looking at you would not be scary so that you don’t get mixed signals. If you are sitting in a bar alone, as soon as you direct your eyes towards him, he will stare at you with a strong intent such that you start feeling some goosebumps. This guy will not smile at all because he would spoil the passion he is creating between the two of you. He enjoys the way he dominates you with his eyes and feels more excited if you look down or blush. He wants you to giggle and be his little shy princess and you won’t realize when you start feeling the submissive womanly energy.

24. A change in vocal tone
Basically, guys can speak in 3 tones and their vocal ranges are very deep. Watch his tone of voice- if he speaks too fast or slow. He knows that if he speaks too fast, you might not get his message clearly, so he will try to talk slowly and deeply. The deep voice is a sign of seducing you while speaking slowly enables him to stay in control of his words. He doesn’t want you to see how nervous he is and so he will maintain a low tone and relax his vocal chords.
25. Sharp dressing
Even though dressing is not a direct body language sign, it is one of the basics men use when approaching potential dates. If a man is interested in starting a relationship with you, he knows he cannot afford to fail his test before it begins.
The first thing you will notice is his polished appearance, particularly his shoes. Once he declares his intent, he will be wearing clothes he feels comfortable in he will look sharp and neat. He will start picking clothes that fit him perfectly to avoid any disaster. Believe it or not, body language plays a very big role in dating. As a woman, you should be more aware and be quick to interpret what a man is saying, even before he uses the verbal language. Most men understand that the key to attracting a gorgeous lady is not income or age.
Communication, with no doubt, is the main factor and that is why you must be keen with his body language because it is less likely to deceive you. Just in case you’ve never heard this, 90 percent of people’s communication is achieved non-verbally. A vast majority of human expressions are not spoken. So, you will notice your new friend sending some of the named 25 signs and you will be picking them subconsciously.
