Body language can tell us a lot about what others are feeling.

However, it can easily be misinterpreted, which is why you need to be careful with your assumptions.

If you only read into your partner's body language, and ignore all the other verbal clues he's given you, then you could misinterpret how he's feeling.

Of course, the roles could be reversed and he could assume that you want to get far away from him when you're really hoping for a kiss.2

That's why it's important to realize that these body signals can be easily misinterpreted:

1. Crossed Arms

You might cross your arms when you're cold or when you have nowhere else to put them.

However, crossed arms can be misinterpreted as a sign of aggression.

It's a way to close yourself off, which can make you look like you aren't interested in social interaction.

So if you're on a date and are wondering why your man is keeping his distance from you, it's time to uncross those arms.

2. Narrow Eyes

You might narrow your eyes in order to see better, or even because you got something caught in your eye.

However, most people will see that type of body language as a signal of anger.

You might cause them to wonder what they did wrong, so if they suddenly seem like their guard is up, reassure them that you aren't upset with them.

3. Hands on Hips

You might feel comfortable resting your hands on your hips.

However, some people will assume that you're feeling moody and have an attitude.

Sure, it's a ridiculous assumption, but it's also a common one.

However, as long as your facial features are soft, they'll realize that you don't mean any harm by resting your hands on your hips.

You just need a place to put them.
