Reading body language: With all of the negative reasons why people look up how to read body language one may believe that there are not many happy couples out there.
There are plenty of fantastic relationships out there and you may want to see if you are in one of them.
There are some very specific non verbal actions that people make when there is happiness in their relationship.
Reading the body language of happy couples is not as complicated as you think but there are some very similar aspects as you would find in the body language of couples in a bad relationship.
The first thing that you want to look at when looking at a happy couple starting at the top of the body will be the head.
The amount of time that a person stares at their partner in a good way or the amount of eye contact given will be one of the first cues as to what type of relationship the two people have.
The eye contact between the couple who is happy will be consistent. The glances will not be a stare but more of a caring look. There may also be a smile after the look between the two and there will be feeling of comfort just looking at the two.
These glances are a way to hold contact with the other partner more of a sign or signal with their body language to say “I am here and thinking of you”. Now some couples do go overboard with this and makes the whole process seem creepy and strange. When this eye contact goes wrong it makes the people around the couple feel weird also.
From reading the body language of a happy couple and starting at the head the next step would be the touch between the couple. Happy couples will be more willing to touch their partner in a soft way. Women can be seen in pictures placing their hand on their partners chest or shoulder. If there is a hug involved the bodies will be close to each other and it will appear from looking that there is comfort and the smiles will be real.
The proximity or distance that is kept whether standing or sitting is normally close.
Body language of a happy couple sitting next to each other
When the happy couple sits next to each other their signs or signals of body language once again will include touch. The couple may be holding hands or one person may place their hand on the leg of their partner or on their back. It may even be that one person leans on the other person. Their body language for the most part will seem comfortable when looking that them.
In an instance where the couple is sitting next to each other they may or may not glance or keep eye contact but each person will normally have a smile or even a small smirk almost to say that they are happy without even having to say it.
Reading the body language of couples that are happy can be done out in public places like busy public parks or gardens, out at dinners on the weekend or even at churches or synagogues.
Reading body language of happy couples standing
When the couple is out on the town or just in public the body language that can be read will be similar to that of a happy couple sitting. The two will be close to each other and will normally have some sort of physical contact with the other partner. When the two are not standing next to each other they make keep or make the occasional eye contact with a slight smile and sometimes you may even see the happy couple flirting with each other while standing or sitting next to each other.
Not everybody has positive role models of happy parents but there can be places where you can go out and watch some people who do have these traits.
As you watch these people remember that they have had their ups and downs no matter what age the people are and it taken them some work to get to the point where they are happy. There will also be times where their body language has not been so positive.
So you may think that some of this may too good to be true? Go out and look for happy couples so that you can read their body language.
As always I would like to thank you in advance for your comments and or questions about reading the body language of happy couples.
Now go implement!
