He’ll serve you an eyebrow flash. When we first see someone we’re attracted to, our eyebrows rise and fall. If they like us back, they raise their eyebrows. The whole thing lasts about a fifth of a second and it happens everywhere in the world — to everyone regardless of age, race, or class. Lifting our brows pulls the eyes open and allows more light to reflect off the surface, making them look bright, large and inviting. A flash might be easy to miss but they’re so reliable, if you do spot one, you may know someone likes you before they’ve even registered it themselves. Deliberately extend it for up to one second and you’ve drastically upped the chances of him getting the message you’re interested.
His lips part. If he likes what he sees, his lips will automatically part for a moment when your eyes first lock.
His nostrils flare and his face generally “opens”. The raised brows, parted lips, flaring nostrils and wide eyes give the whole face a friendly “open” expression.
He’ll try to attract your attention. For some men, this might mean a subtle tie adjustment along with a silent prayer that you’ll notice the flash of movement. Others turn into Bippo the Clown and become so loud and boisterous, they’re practically juggling and doing handstands. Any exaggerated movement or gesture usually means he’s trying to stand out from the group. Another giveaway: he’ll unconsciously detach from his friends by standing slightly apart, hoping to be seen as an individual.
He’ll stroke his tie or smooth a lapel. We all know what these preening gestures mean. They’re the equivalent of the female lip lick — ”I want to look good for you.”
He’ll smooth or mess up his hair. Which gestures he chooses depends on his hairstyle and what’s going to make it look more flattering. Guys do this involuntarily and more often than you think. Glance back next time you trot off to the restroom and I bet his hands will be on their way to touching his hair.
His eyebrows remain slightly raised while you’re talking. A slightly surprised, quizzical expression means he finds you fascinating. Or completely nuts. Quite frankly, either are preferable to a man who looks at you with a smooth, relaxed brow and eyes. That one simply finds you boring.
