It’s really important to communicate in a relationship, not just with words but with body language too. Your body language will say a lot more than your words on how you feel towards your partner.
If you are on a date with someone for the first time how you look, there are a number of things that will leave an impression about your personality. Here your body language plays an important role as a touch says or conveys a lot more than your words.
A touch can mean a lot
Any touch on any part of the body can mean a lot of different things to people. It also would depend on what stage the relationship is in. For a first time dating couple it may be too adventurous to reach out and touch a thigh, but then it will all depend upon the body language between the two.
It also depends on the personality
A touch on a thigh can certainly scare off some girls, but for some it may mean –the guy in control and that’s what this type of girl may like. For some men, it may be a step forward and would wait for the girl to react if the touch is welcomed-then this certainly means a green signal to go ahead and make the best of the moment.
The general rule here would be “when in doubt-leave it out” as what could be a simple or casual touch for man, it can be a hint or sign to the girl that the man is interested in her physically. And this can bring a friction in the relationship.
Women can’t really understand this touch
While a man can give many signals to indicate a physical attraction and whether they want to take relation to next level, it is too confusing for women to understand the mind of the man.
Whether it was just casual touch or did he mean something else is a bit tricky to figure out. With the openness of today’s generation, when a man plays with a woman’s hair or tries to make her laugh or just offers a drink, a lot many questions run through a woman’s mind.
Different people have different opinions
When this question was put across by someone on social media, the responses were in varied nature. For the man who had asked this question, this was only when the man wanted to have a physical connection with the woman he liked. For another individual, it meant, “Ownership, authority, tribal seniority. He’s making a priority claim, whether it’s overtly physical or not”.
He further said it can be a provocative pattern, it can be comforting and protective too in nature. Another individual said “Both men & women who are shy or uncomfortable in the environment are unlikely to this. It takes confidence to reach out and touch someone. That seems to reply coming from a decent person and this is how women would want to see in their men.
