Generally, people like looking at the persons they like while avoiding eye contact with individuals that don’t like. An increase in eye contact can be due to the neuro-chemical oxytocin. Increased oxytocin level leads to an increase in eye contact which provides a well-being feeling. It also improves mutual attraction. Interest is depicted by pupil dilation. People with wider dilation are more attracted to each other. However, it’s important to note that there is a thin line between staring and eye contact. A person that maintains eye contact likes you. However, a person that stares at you is impolite.
When a person leans towards you when talking, they most likely like you. However, if a person distances themselves from you, they don’t like you. Rapport increases when a person leans inwards. For instance, when people sit adjacent to each other, they turn heads towards one another. This can be followed by turning shoulders towards each other. Torsos will then turn fully as they turn to face each other. Finally, they will lean on each other.
