You've been told time and time again that actions speak louder than words. That means you need to do more than tell your crush how attractive he is--you also need to show him. It's not difficult to do, as long as you know what body language to use and what to avoid. Here are some tips for making it clear you enjoy spending time with him:
1. Don't Narrow Your Eyes
It doesn't matter if your sight is bad and you're scrunching your eyes to get a better look at him. You don't want to narrow your eyes at him, because it will make you look angrier than you actually are. Either that or he'll think that you're judging him, and no one wants to feel like they're being examined under a microscope.
2. Don't Lean Away
If you lean away from him or refuse to face him when he's talking to you, he'll assume that you'd rather be elsewhere. If you want him to know that you enjoy spending time with him, you have to show it by giving him your full attention. That means keeping your eyes on him and directing your body toward his.
3. Don't Cross Your Arms
When you cross your arms, you look angry. So even if you're cold or can't figure our what else to do with your hands, you need to avoid crossing those arms. You don't want your crush to get the wrong idea, do you?
4. Don't Slouch
When do you slouch? Mostly when you're bored, which means that your crush will assume you want to leave the room when you start slouching around him. It's hard to hold good posture, but it'll kill two birds with one stone. Not only will it assure him that you're having a good time, but it'll also make your shoulders fall back and your chest stick out. That means you'll be looking your absolute best.
5. Don't Prop up Your Head
When you're bored in class and need to force yourself to stay awake, you'll prop your head up with your hands. But when you're out on a date, you can't do that. It doesn't matter how sleepy you are--you can manage to keep your eyes open for a few more hours if you really like him. Don't get lazy.
6. Don't Sit on the Edge of Your Chair
The only time you should sit on the edge of your chair is if you're trying to lean in close to him. Otherwise, it'll make it look like you're ready to leave. The closer you are to the edge of your chair, the more it looks like you're trying to sneak away.
7. Don't Check the Time
It's natural to fidget when you're nervous, but there are certain habits you should learn to avoid. Don't check your watch or phone for the time or for any other reason, because it'll make it seem like you're counting down the minutes until you can leave. Don't inspect your fingernails either, because it's something most women do when they're unbelievably bored.
If you like a guy, you want him to know it. If he assumes that you can't stand him, then he's never going to ask you out on a date. That's why you need to pay special attention to what kind of signals you're giving off with your body language. What type of body language annoys you the most?
