Body language: Tell me without saying it

What partners say to each other is important, but the communication without saying a word is what makes it magical

CoupleBody language is the quiet, secret and most powerful language of all!

According to experts, our non-verbal language communicates about 50 per cent of what we really mean [voice tonality contributes 38 per cent] while words themselves contribute a mere seven per cent. Our bodies send out messages constantly and often we don’t recognise that we’re communicating a lot more than we realise.

Vibes are non-verbal signals that partners exchange while communicating.

The flirtatious smile, the look in the eye – all tell a story; there is intent. If you do not recognise the intent, you are missing a lot. It is important that you realise that such signs are being sent; that you tune in to that frequency.

Research states that men tend to overestimate women’s sexual interest, while women underestimate men’s willingness to commit to a relationship. So when understanding the signals, it is important for men to be moderate and strike a balance.

Here are a few common gestures that are most often-used as a means of communication.

The Gaze

The eyes are a window to our innermost thoughts and desires. What way she looks at him, the duration of the gaze, the area on which she gazes, the times she flutters her eyelids.

Playing with hair

The way your partner plays with his/her hair indicates his/her interest. See her twirling her index finger in the hair, around her chin. If it is slow and rhythmic, it probably means she is thinking about it. If it is irregular, it could mean she is not sure. Men run their hands through the hair on the back side of their head. It could be a sign of showing-off, bravado.


The dress is can be strong means of communication of the kind of passion. If she is wearing something flimsy, it may be she is eager for passion. If she wears something revealing but elaborate, it could mean that foreplay is on her mind.


The way your partner touches you as you brush by. How long s/he holds the touch, the number of times, the force s/he uses, the area s/he touches — each can indicate intent.

These are just a few signs and signals as every genuine expression cannot be described. The purpose is not to educate how the signs are supposed to be read. The moot point is to recognise that this kind of communication exists and be aware. Recognising these signals could be the start of really exciting times. Wish you luck in understanding them and having great unspoken conversations in the future.
