Let’s say you are talking to your date and you are describing your first kiss experience and you notice that your partner’s eyes are looking down to their right hand side.Freeze…What does this body language Mean?
If a person is Looking down to their right their body language indicates that they are attending to their internal emotions.They are just feeling the emotions that they once experienced or the feelings they are experiencing at the moment.
So in our scenario your date maybe focusing on how her body is turned on by your narration of your intimate experience.Or She is focusing on her feelings,her own first kiss experience and how it made her feel.In short she is attending to her internal emotions.
If you ask someone to “Do you remember how cold it was there when we went there last year? “, and if their eyes look down to the right then they have probably recalled the chillness and are experiencing those feelings again.
There is a subtle difference in meaning between a ‘person looking down to their Right’ and a ‘person looking down and to the Right’ and it’s very important to know it.Let me illustrate both cases with the help of examples.
‘looking down to their Right’:You are in a conversation with someone and you notice that the Person to whom you are talking to is ‘looking down to their Right’.If you were talking to them about the severe headache you had the previous day then there is a good chance that your friend is feeling his or her own headache pain they had last time.
‘looking down and to the Right’:
You are looking at someone and they just made eye contact with you, but just for a second,immediately they started looking down and to the Right or even left-If i exaggerate a little bit it is like they are looking down at the floor and sweeping their eyes to their Right or left.Okay,now that you know the difference between the two cases you may be curious in knowing what it implies when someone you look at is looking down and to the right.Well it is very subtle to tell for sure because the context of the social situation plays a big hand on what the body language implies but allow me to throw my 2 cents.
In a dating situation looking down and to the Right or left after holding eye contact for a couple of seconds is a good sign that the target is attracted to you and is evaluating the feelings she or he has for you.It is a lot better than someone looking at you for a few second and directly looks at their right or left without lowering their eyes down or looking down-Which is a surefire sign that they are not interested in you and just want to move away from the situation.But if they look back at you again a few seconds later it may mean that they looked away as a knee jerk reaction and now they want to make eye contact with you again if you are still interested in doing so.
When we talk to a person what is the most notable thing you see?Their Eyes,Right?
What if you can guess what a person is going through in their mind by just looking at their eyes.There are plenty of advantages if you are going to develop this skill and you will become better and better at reading a person and adjusting your response accordingly.
Don’t worry that you are going to come up as a weirdo for looking in to their eyes,you are just going to appear as a confident and curious Person.
