Everyone knows that communication between a man and a woman is a very tricky thing. It is further complicated by the fact that as a general rule, men are not that great at communicating … so, from Mars then?!
True, we’re certainly the same species from the same planet, but unfortunately, that’s where it ends. Our brains are different in both structure and chemistry. Did you know that women have 11% more neurons in their brains for emotion, feelings, and communication?
Women are known for being quite direct and a little wordy in expressing themselves, giving their partner all of the details. Men on the other hand, are less direct in their communication style and can leave a woman … well, wondering what the heck it all means. Put simply: Men prefer the headline, and women prefer the story.
Body language is generally the gatekeeper to someone’s inner thoughts. So yeah, it’s not always what he says, but what he does that really matters. According to body language expert Kevin Hogan, Psy.D., and author of The Psychology of Persuasion, all you have to do is to observe the signals right in front of you.
Your move: Put on a friendly face and frame your questions in a curious, rather than in an accusatory manner. If you’ll listen long enough, he’ll spill the beans.
Your move: Call him out on it. If he blows you off, ask him to come clean and tell him that you can handle whatever it is. This might convince him that you won’t freak out.
Your move: Try to get the suspect – err … man – to relax. Maintain a poker face and say something like, “You look upset. Anything you want to tell me?” It’s key to maintain a neutral expression so he won’t change his story based on your reaction.
Here’s the thing, body language is on point. It’s very hard to fake sincerity when he’s body sends you clues. Is his smile authentic complete with crow’s feet around the eyes? Does he maintain eye contact, or does he seem to flake constantly at the last minute?
One of the best ways to know whether a guy means what he says is when he does his best at keeping his word. If he says he wants to see you, that’s exactly what he does and no other girl – or obligation – (short of a real emergency) is likely to get in the way.
