What is it about men that’s so difficult to figure out? Many women just can’t decipher what men mean when they do one thing or another.
But, when a man likes a woman a lot, chances are he would show the following behaviour:
A man would smile.
How do men behave around the woman they like? In short, they smile. A lot. A study of college men found that when men were around women, they found attracted, and they smiled more.
In fact, their smiles were bigger and more genuine looking than when they weren’t around women they found attractive.
So what’s going on here? Researchers believe that when men see a woman they like, their brain releases dopamine, which is associated with pleasure. And one of the ways humans show pleasure is by smiling.
So it seems that when a man likes a woman, he can’t help but smile at her. And hopefully, she returns the smile!
A man would groom.
One common behaviour is for a man to try to groom and clean himself up around her. This may mean he takes extra care with his appearance or cleans up the apartment or house in case she comes over. Some men may also act more polite and respectful around the woman they like to make a good impression.
The presence of the woman he likes would make a man want to display his tail feathers – like a peacock. He would stand taller, push his hair back or do some subconscious movement that shows her that he’s interested. He might also mirror her movements without realizing it.
A man would draw closer.
Research shows that men typically behave differently around the woman they like. They may become more attentive and act in a way that makes them appear more attractive. One study showed that when men were put in a situation where they interacted with an attractive female, they were more likely to come closer to her and make more eye contact.
Men who are interested in a woman would spend more time looking at her body and less time looking at her face. This suggests that they are focusing on her physical features rather than trying to engage in conversation.
Even a shy guy would want to be close to the woman he likes. If they don’t know each other that well, then he’d probably just be in the same place she is. If he does know her, he’d try to get into a conversation, and if they are on speaking terms, he’d probably make the space between them smaller.
He Would Gaze
Men are highly visual when it comes to women. They like to look and appreciate, and even a shy guy can’t help stealing glances at the woman he likes. He might stare directly into her eyes and face or try to look when her head’s turned in the opposite direction.
He Would Try to Touch
When a man is interested in a woman, he may start to behave differently around her. He may try to touch her more, or even start talking more. This is because he is trying to build a connection with her and get closer to her. If she doesn’t seem interested, he may back off and stop trying so hard.
Men are, likewise, tactile creatures – they like to touch. So a man would probably hold her elbow gently when leading her, or push her hair away from her face, or hold her gently on her back.
A man would listen with interest.
A man wants to know as much as he can about the woman he likes, so he listens to what she has to say and how she says them.
A man would be gentle.
Generally, no matter how rowdy or rough and tough a guy is around his friends, he treats the woman he likes with tenderness. He is gentle with her and treats her with respect.
