Romantic Relationships do not need to be verbal all the time. A relationship involves the magic of unsaid words and communication through eyes and body language. Especially if you are attracted towards someone in the nascent stages of courtship, words do not come easy. As a man did you ever bashfully attempt to hold your girl's hand. Or, as a woman how often have you sent subtle hints that you’d love a warm cuddle to feel secure that your guy loves you. Or perhaps even a couple maintains distance by hiding expressions. These are the signs of body language that will reveal much about your relationship without uttering a word!

1Direct positive eye contact: Everything is fine. You like each other

Eye contact is the key word here, if your future partner gazes at you while you talk to them and constantly looks into your eyes...(not in a creepy way though), you can be sure they like you are seriously into you and is really interested in what you have to say and wants to know more about you.

2Body parts turned towards you: this means they like you and are interested in you

The angle of the body of your partner, while you are talking, is also crucial. During your conversation, if your partner tilts his body towards you, it shows a clear interest in you. Notice their toe caps, they would always be pointing towards you even when they are sitting crossed legged.

3If she leans forward towards you, she likes you

Now if you have a pretty lady who is seriously into you, you can judge by the way she sits in front of you. She would subconsciously bend her body towards you with a straight back, hence trying to physically allure you.

4If he stands straight and tall with an arm resting near your shoulder, he likes you

It’s a typical male move which is cute as well pretty and primitive. Whenever they are in close proximity with a woman they fancy, they will automatically straighten themselves to look bigger and stronger. They may sometimes lean on a wall with their hands at your shoulder level, to get into your private space as their protective instincts kicks in.

5When your partner uses several valid excuses to touch you gently

Well if both partners start brushing or touching each other’s hands (accidently of course) a bit too often or if imaginary dust particles appear on either one such as on hair or clothes that need dusting off repeatedly, it is a telltale sign of true affection for each other.

6When your partner tries to impress you

Impressing your partner is the most important aspect of affection you can do. When you are amidst a group of friends and the one who cracks a joke looks at you earnestly and singles you out for your reaction alone, it’s an obvious sign of attraction because they are trying hard to please you and only you.

7When a man smiles widely

Trust me, smiling widely for no reason comes very tough for men as they stop smiling widely around the age of 5-6 years itself. But the rules can bend when he is around someone who makes him really happy and there you are, you can see a flashing smile pasted on his face every time he meets you. According to psychologist Patti Wood, this is a sign of immense happiness.

8Copying is the biggest form of flattery

If someone fancies you seriously, you are in their subconscious most of the time! So when you realize that a person has started using the same gestures and phrases like yours, do not get pissed because they don’t mean to annoy you. Instead, they admire you and are copying you subconsciously.

Problems in paradise! Yes if communicating with your partner is getting to be harder by the day and you observe them turning or sleeping away from you, making no eye contact and trying to keep a physical distance, these are unconditional signs of resentment and antipathy. It's time you try to sort out problems creeping into the relationship.

10When there are signs of formalities in the relationship

When formality starts creeping into the relationship especially in bed, it’s a big red flag. You notice that kisses are just routine pecks and when sleeping your partner turns away from you and sleeps in a fatal position, this clearly indicates there is a storm brewing in the relationship there is a relationship which you need to brace up for.

11When there is a loss of interest

If your partner has started losing interest in you, it signals the death knells for the relationship. Read the signs as soon as they start appearing. Your otherwise hilarious jokes solicit a lukewarm response or all your initiative for fun is met with a lack of enthusiasm. It is about time you look for a more appreciative partner.

12Body blocks

A Body block is the worst possible tactic in a dying relationship. Your partner refuses to face you and rather blocks you completely with crossed arms and legs. Conversations are met with ignored responses or your partner may have their eyes cast downwards, display a sign of edginess and irritability while speaking. All this means it’s high time to make some tough decisions and fast.

13Your partner stops following etiquette

If your partner does not bother following basic etiquette like opening doors for you or not walking at the same pace as you. They try to enter first with the door banging in your face; they don’t look back or even walk ahead of you, all this should not be taken lying down. The same rules applies to the girls too who rather talk over the phone incessantly ignoring their partner completely, it’s time to do a rethink.

14Loving relationships are about caring and compromise

Loving relations are the epitome of care and concern, so when you find your partner stops showing you the same affection and becomes indifferent towards you, consider your relationship almost over. Instead of performing endearing tasks like smoothening your hair or dusting imaginary specks of dust from your clothes, they simply point it out to you to do it yourself; it means the relationship isn’t harmonious.

However these “red flags” are just symptoms and not a prediction but possibilities of what can happen. Every relationship has the power to be rectified through compromise, communication and hearty talks over a cup of coffee and a romantic movie! Time, after all, is a great healer and good sense always prevails.
