When it comes to matters of the heart, itâ??s no secret that men arenâ??t great with words.

Learn to identify the signals the body unconsciously gives off to discover how he really feels about you.
Itâ??s not easy to decode the mind of the modern male, but learning to decipher his non-verbal communication is a truly valuable asset in the game of love.

To be sure you’re reading him right, be on the lookout for these signs:
Nervous energy

If a man is into you, you WILL make him nervous. He’ll get goosebumps or a rapidly beating heart just from being around you. Look for signs like unexplained laughter, sweaty palms and fidgeting.

Men always want to be in control of their emotions. If he has trouble doing that around you, it’s most likely because you make him nervous and excited. Help him to relax, and he’ll thank you by being a great guy you can depend on.
The eyes are the window to the soul

If heâ??s interested in you, he’ll focus on you with those piercing peepers and hold your gaze. Return his romantic look with a quiet smile and let him know that you are interested. He’ll be at your side in no time.
Lean on me

Superflirt author Tracey Cox states that if a guy is interested in you, his body will lean forward toward yours. This move can be either subtle or extreme. Itâ??s his little way of letting you know heâ??d like to get even closer! Once his interest is piqued, youâ??ll both find it hard to pull away. A vital aspect of the physical nature of romance is reciprocity. So meet his advances with your own!

This will not only signal your own interest, but also serves to hold his. Touch is also a giveaway, explains Cox. If a guy is interested in you, then he’ll want to be near you. Heâ??ll also take any and every opportunity to touch you.

Maybe itâ??s your arm, your knee, heck it could even be your elbow, it doesnâ??t matter, as long as his presence is physical and affectionate. Itâ??s his way of letting you know he likes you.
Listen closely

How do you know that you have a manâ??s attention? Simple. Heâ??s not talking. The next time youâ??re able to, listen closely to any table full of men and you will hear them speaking rapturously about their favorite subject: themselves. For a man to really listen to what you have to say, you know it must at least be a strong attraction, claims Matt Titus, author of Why Hasnâ??t He Called?.
Blowing the punchline

You canâ??t tell a joke to save your life. Does he laugh at it anyway? Men are very in touch with their sense of humour, so if he laughs heartily at your latest knock-knock joke, itâ??s a good bet that heâ??s looking at you as relationship material.
Mutual feelings

Men and women have very different brain chemistries: she is verbal; he is not. He is driven by visual desires, while she is guided by her deep emotions. Women are taught to express their feelings rationally and feel no shame in crying, and men hit things.

Therefore, if you actually get a guy to open up and express his emotions, consider it a major achievement in your relationship. Discussing your feelings for each other is a powerful bonding experience and serves to strengthen a relationship for whatever challenges the future may bring.
