Several people who have read my article, “Does He Like Me? Reading Male Body Language for Clues of Attraction,” have asked me why I didn’t include information about deciphering body language that indicates if a guy is not romantically interested. They have pointed out that there is plenty of information available about how to tell if a man is not interested based on his behavior thanks to the book, “He’s Just Not That Into You;” however, there isn’t much out there about clues based on body language.
The truth is that the answer isn’t simple. Reading body language requires you to play detective and watch him closely. Subconsciously, he may be sending you signals about his attraction or lack thereof. Use the fact that physiology changes occur when sexually aroused to your advantage. If these changes do not occur, then unfortunately, he is not attracted to you.
Minimal Facial Movement
There are certain facial movements that we cannot control. The eyebrow flash is one such involuntary movement. If you do not see the quick rise and fall of his eyebrows when he first looks at you then he may not be sexually interested.
A man who is attracted to you will tighten his muscles and stand up straight when you are around. He wants to impress you with his big strong alpha male stance. If your potential suitor slouches or seems disinterested, he probably is. Think about it. A depressed person usually has sloppy posture, while a happy person typically holds his head up high and shoulders back. That person is ready to take on the world…and you.
Lack of Eye Contact
If the man you are interested in never tries to look into your eyes, he may not be interested in you. What if he is shy? Although he may be shy and reluctant to make eye contact, most men know that in order to make a romantic connection they must overcome their shyness. If a man does not attempt to overcome his reluctance to make eye contact, then he is not interested.
No Reaction Means No Attraction
Is his behavior the same around you as it is around everyone else? If he is disinterest or unaffected by your presence, then he will not have any reaction when you are around.
Knowing if a man is interested in you will save you a lot to time and heartache. As they say, “Rejection is God’s protection.” If there are no body language clues of attraction, then the guy is not interested. This is a good thing. Now, you will have more time for that guy who has been sending you all sorts of romantic body language signals.
