Body language of licking lips

Body language of licking lips: Just for a minute imagine you are sitting in a meeting and the question about the new project goes to Joe and all of the sudden he starts licking his lips. And you think “wow this is unusual I have never seen Joe lick his lips, what on earth does it mean is he lying or is he excited”?

Or

You ask your boyfriend where he was and all of the sudden all of his body language changes into something not normal. You see him say “I was with Steve” pause … pause … licking his lips  “and we went to a new bar” as he looks away. Could this be a sign and signal that your boyfriend is lying or did he really go to the new bar?

Or

You go to a new bar and you look over in the corner and notice this girl who winks at you and slowly starts licking her lips. You pull out your phone and Google “Body language of licking lips” to find out how to interpret this sign or signal. Was that a sign of overtly flirting with you, was she thirsty or were her lips chapped?

 

Now it very well may be that licking lips means nothing …but just in case you decide it’s time to find out what the body language of licking lips means.

 

There are plenty of times where people lick their lips and there can be a few reasons why they do so.

  • ·         Out of necessity because of lack of moisture
  • ·         Excitement about an idea or thought non sexual
  • ·         Out of habit
  • ·         Nervous tick
  • ·         Caused by a lie
  • ·         Suggestive

 

Every day reason for licking lips

Now just think for a moment when you were out in the sun and were hot or even possibly when it was really cold and your lips were chapped. Did you lick your lips? The chances are great that you licking your lips meant absolutely nothing but that it was needed. Now if someone were in your peripheral they could read into a little differently. This is a reminder why you need to take a look at what the normal actions are of the person are who you are looking at while interpreting their body language.

 

Excitement and licking lips

There are some people that when they get excited about anything they lick their lips. This rush of energy has to go somewhere for them and the lips are the answer. You would see this as a common trait or action that happens. You would want to know this baseline before making a decision as to whether or not they are lying or if they are just excited about a thought or belief.

 

 Habit of licking lips or biting lips

There are also men and women who have developed the habit of licking or biting their lips over time and it means nothing except that it is a routine behavior. On the other hand if the man, woman or child has a normal behavior of licking their lips and all of the sudden in a situation that normal behavior doesn’t happen there might be a reason for it and it may not be good or it may need nothing at all. This means that it’s time to ask some questions to gather further information about what is going on.

 

 Nervous action of licking lips

On the next spectrum of the level from the body language of licking lips is the nervous tick or action. It may be the pressure of a tough question or an uncomfortable situation or room that would cause one to change their behavior and display. In this nervousness may fall the issue of lying but it doesn’t mean that there is a lie. It could very well be nervous energy just like a man or a woman tapping their foot. In fact you may see foot tapping and lip licking at the same time.

 

 Lying and licking lips

It could very well be that the man, woman or child that you are looking at is asked a tough question they pause and then they lick their lips with another pause and then answer your question. This may be a flat out sign that they are lying but be careful because remember it may be nervous energy. If you are a woman / girl and ask a guy do you love me? If he’s not ready be to answer this question be ready for all sorts of nervous behavior and stalls but even then it doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you or he’s lying that’s just a tough question all of the sudden.

 

In the case of lying you are looking for abnormal behavior or an action that is not a normal routine for the person that you are looking at. Sometimes it may seem that licking the lips may be a symbolic greasing of the lips to get the big whopper of a lie out of their mouth. This action may take place as a way to get another half a second to figure a story out.

If you spend some time watching the television show “Cops” you will see the suspects start licking their lips after a few tough questions are asked with long pauses or short pauses. Are the suspects lying before or after they lick their lips? Quite possibly but this show is a good place to look and watch for the signs and signals of lying.

 

Just remember before you try and confront your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife, kid or coworker of lying look for abnormal behavior then question about it. You may see other signs you have never seen before or you may see normal routines remember the baseline their behavior first.

Seduction and licking of the lips

In the example of the woman licking her lips at the bar that would be considered overt behavior to induce behavior from you or whoever it was generated towards. The licking of the lips may be considered sensual when directed towards a person. Now this is the body language that movies scenes are based upon. You may see a man or woman lick their lips when they meet a new person and they may not even know that they are doing so. Just remember that this may be some nervous energy or it could mean something else entirely. This action may take a few minutes or it may happen instantly depending on what is going on in the mind of the two and the type of chemistry that they have.

 

Now there may be a tendency to look at the lips when a man or woman licks them but you may want to be careful because staring at the lips may be seen as being sexual. So all of the sudden you get excited that someone is licking their lips and you start staring and the other person takes your body language as sexually advanced and that’s not what they were licking their lips for.

Licking lips for many reasons

There may be more than one reason why a person would or could lick their lips while some of them may be good others reasons may be bad. It is important to take the time to learn the behaviors and characteristics of a person’s routine actions or baseline them to determine what their action means or could be interpreted to mean.

 

Understanding body language can help you determine what the actions that other people mean. Learning how to read body language can be fun and also done at home:

Body language of impatience

Body language of impatience has a few key components that can help you understand and interpret what signs and signals you can watch or see and almost immediately determine impatience. Now there is always the temptation to believe or to think that you know exactly what an action of the body means and therefore what the other person or people are thinking. Base lining or watching the man woman or child to determine their normal behavior patterns is always important to ensure that you read their message right. You will want to watch the person for a few moments to determine normal patterns or routines that they have.

It may be that you are the coolest person on the planet and everyone likes to hang out with you but what about when that person that is with you needs to be somewhere else or they are uncomfortable in their surrounding? You may find that the signs and signals of impatience show through and if they are not deal with your message may be lost.

 

 People can be impatient for many reasons but you will really find that there are really 2 reasons almost everything will fall under:

  • ·         They are not interested in what you have to say or offer because they are busy
  • ·         They have somewhere to be because they are busy and they are not interested in what you have to say or offer

 

As you watch and read the body signals of a person you can work with the top down approach and that is to start with the head and move down the rest of the body.

 

Impatience and the body language of the head, shoulders and torso

You may find that when anyone has somewhere to be they may not keep eye contact with you or may turn their head slightly while talking to you almost as if they are talking out the side of their mouth. The head of the person may even nod their head away from you as a nonverbal way to try and escape form the situation. Where you would normally find good eye contact with the person if you know them and now they will not hold it for very long chances are good that something else is going on and they would rather be somewhere else.

 

When you look at the trunk of the body, the shoulders or even the torso when there is impatience you may also see that there is a shift away from you to a door or someone else, their proximity to you may change. The level of the shoulders may change and tilt away from you or the man, woman or child will lean away from you. This may be a sign that the person you are with does not want to be with you or they need to be somewhere else.  

In some instances you may see the breathing pattern change and the person starts to take deep breaths.

 

Body language of the infamous hand roll

There has been a time where either you have done this or someone has done the action of rolling their hands or arms to you. This sign or signal is a way for the person to say without saying let’s get this ball rolling or move on. If you are a persuader or influencer your commitment to a message or a time has overstepped its bounds and chances are good you are about to lose the arrangement or agreement. This hand or arm roll may also be used with the head nodding as the impatience wears into the conversation. At first these signs may be subtle with a finger roll and may lead into full blown hand and arm rolls.   

 

A common set of body language signs of impatience paired together.

The changes in the body language may include groups or clusters of different actions along with the shifting of the body and or torso.

  • ·         Hand and arm rolls
  • ·         Glaring of the eyes
  • ·         Loss or lack of eye contact
  • ·         Micro expressions of contempt 
  • ·        Shaking of the head  
  •           Deep breaths and or sighs
  • ·         Foot tapping
  • ·         A body tilt toward the door
  • ·         A change in proximity
  • ·         Signs of pouting in the face
  • ·         Over animation in the arms and head
  • ·         Feet shifting away from you

There may also be some ever so subtle signs and signals that may even be considered convert could include the feet and hands of the person who is impatient. It may just be that the person who is impatient is slightly pointing their hand or starts to point a foot away from you.

 

Verbal actions coupled with nonverbal actions   

Impatience not only changes the nonverbal actions of the body but may also include the verbal attributes of another person wanting or having to be somewhere else. The pace of the words may speed up along with sentences that become shorter when impatience is present. Answers to questions may also become “yes” or “no” answers to get away faster.

Couple the all of the actions of the body along with the nonverbal actions and you spot when impatience has set in.

 

What to do with the signs of impatience

There will be times that you will read the signs of impatience and there is a right way to deal with the situation. You can use a phrase similar to “I sense you have somewhere else to be”. Now this can be done wrong if you are not patient and it isn’t vocalized the right way and if that is the case the nonverbal actions of the man or the woman will really change and they will react to you in a negative way.

 

Remember to be patient as you read the body language of others and that your reactions can cause more problems than what you started with.

 

Learning how to read body language can increase you effective communication skills.

body language of blinking

Body language of blinking: When reading the body language or nonverbal communication of others one of the items that may identify deceit, lies, stress or even medical conditions is blinking. The action of blinking happens naturally and you can easily make mistakes when it comes to interpreting what blinking means.

 

There are some actions that people really cannot control that perform necessary functions and blinking is one of them.  This action keeps the eyes moisturized but also protects the eyes from debris and bright lights.

 

The average person blinks every 3-12 seconds and that can work out to 8-10 blinks per minute unless under stress or medical conditions.

 

Under stress, while fabricating or while lying the rate of blinking may increase.

  

Body language of blinking and lying

One common mistake that people make when reading the body language of a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife is that they are too quick to believe that excessive blinking is a definite sign of lying.

 

One of the signs of deception and or lying can be excessive blinking and through plenty of misinformation it’s an automatic belief in some it means lying. Now it may also be that the man or woman is under stress. You will have to be careful and baseline the person that you are examining to look for traits that would lead you to understand if it is a lie that is causing the blinking or jest the stress of being questioned. You will also want to take a look at the micro expressions that a man or woman has because if the person does not know about the accusations they should show surprise.

 

As a man or woman lies they may have a cluster of body language actions that happen when they start to deceive or fabricate. There may be touching of the face, excessive licking of the lips, a change in the breathing patterns, lack of eye contact, a long rub or stroke of a body part like the arm or leg. With these clusters you may notice that the blink rate would increase. This is where you would want to start questioning the story of what is going on if there is a combination of these items going on.  

 

It could be either be the stress of the encounter or the fact that the man or woman is lying and in some instances it could be both. Just take your time before you make a judgment.  

 

Body language of stress or fatigue

Fatigue or stress also may directly influence the rate of blinking. When being questioned by a significant other the stress alone may cause some questions about the blink rate. The signs and signals of stress or fatigue will be slower actions from the body.  

 

 

Body language of blinking and allergies and medical conditions  

Nervous system ailments can cause men or women to blink faster than normal and these faster blinks will be consistent for the most part.

 Having contacts in may also cause extra blinking so if you know that the man or woman has contacts there is a time where you may want to count this item.

When eyes are itchy there are times where men and or women will blink faster than normal, you may see that they eyes are red and or puffy when this happens. When there is an issue or medical condition the faster blink rate may or may not be consistently fast. There are some people that when interacting with others that blink faster than what they would if they were not. People who work in dimly lit areas may also have blinking triggered.

 

Reading the body language of others along with their nonverbal signs and signals can help you understand if a man or woman is lying.

 

As always I would like to thank you in advance for your comments and or questions about blinking and lying.

Body language of successful women

 

Body language of successful women: Having the ability to read body language like an expert  can help you in many situations whether professional, personal or even when it is dangerous. Understanding the cues or nonverbal actions that men and women take will allow you the ability.

 

Women have some specific traits that they have when it comes to body language and typically women are softer when it comes to their actions and what they do than what you would find with the body language of a man. This is not a judgment or a bad thing it just is what it is.  

 

The approach that women have when working with others is different than what a man might do and this ranges from the way that they walk up to a man or woman and what body language or nonverbal actions that they use.

 

Women have come far in the short span of the last 50 years just going back that far it wasn’t common for a woman to own a business or to be successful without a man. It’s a great and fantastic thing that it is more and more common to see successful women.

 

When it comes to the nonverbal signs of successful women there will be plenty of “maybe’s and “possibly” statements as there is no exact uniform body language of successful women or men just some common threads that may or may not happen as with any other reading of nonverbal actions.

 

As a general guide you will always want to baseline the man or the woman that you want to read the body language of especially if you are going to interact, you will not want to have some issues with the law of reaction.  

 

When successful women read your body language or nonverbal actions know and understand that you will be under far more scrutiny than you would be of that of a successful man, they will know what to look for.

 

Body language of successful women and confidence

Typically for all of the issues that have held women successful women back they will normally show good signs of confidence. The successful women will normally glide while they walk and it will seem like its even. The eye contact may be stronger than normal as successful women have probably been “eye checked” to see how serious they may be about their business strategies and or tactics and this may really be the case when a man doesn’t believe that “she” will be able to succeed.   Women can tell when a man or another woman lacks confidence as they have been approached for dating and can interpret the bad sigans and signals from the lack of confidence.

 

Body language of successful women’s hands and touching others  

Typically women take better care of their hands than what men do. You may notice that a successful woman has possible manicured hands and clean skin. A woman who is successful may or may not touch others but when she does it will be appropriate to make sure that the wrong message is not sent to the recipient especially if the recipient is a man. To put it simply a successful woman will know where to touch and where not to no matter what her hands look like.

 

Pay attention to how you touch a woman successful or not for them it will be a comfort zone issue. Know that the general rule is that it is ok to touch a woman after they have touched you in limited locations like particularly on the back of their arm from the shoulder to the elbow. Now for the guys who think that they are pick up artists or alpha males the men may think that these rules do not apply to them.

 

If you are a man or woman reading this women will be looking at your hands to determine what they can decipher about you without even talking.  

 

Body language of successful women’s clothing

You may find that successful women dress well, now that doesn’t always mean expensive cloths but you will find that most of the time successful women will make sure that their presentation of what they wear is acceptable to the other women and men around them.

 

If you get the chance to ask women who they dress up for whether its shoes, clothing, makeup, accessories and they will normally say that they way that they look is for other women to not be judged by them. This may not be the case for men, for the most part men only worry about what woman think (this is not a 100% for every man).

 

A successful woman will show through he nonverbal signs of her clothing that she is a force to be reckoned with especially if she is used to seeing the micro expressions of contempt.

 

Women whether successful or not will typically pay attention to how other women and men are dressed and make their decisions based upon what they see.

 

Body language of successful women’s accessories

You will find that successful women will typically know the limitations of what accessories should be worm in each occasion. You may find that “she” has bracelets, earrings, pendants on a chain or a ring that are tasteful but not excessive. This is not a 100% rule as some successful women make sure that you know she has money and the diamonds and gold will prove it.

 

You may find that the successful woman is carrying a nice purse and that her accessories have to match what she is wearing.

 

 

Body language of successful women’s shoes

Men typically don’t understand that for women shoes are an accessory that can make or break an outfit whether a woman is successful or not it is typical for women to pay close attention to shoes but not just theirs, but your also.

 

For some women dirty shoes are a deal breaker especially if you have not taken care of yours. That means that they better be cleaned and or polished and this could be for a man or a women. Women usually pay more attention to details and make their decisions based upon “gut instinct” more than what men do.

 

If you tell a woman that you are successful the shoes that you wear as a man or a woman may just give away whether you are telling the truth or fabricating your abilities.    

 

Body language of successful women’s nonverbal actions

Successful women will understand the rules of proximity even if they don’t know a name like “bell bubble”. Women can be more intuitive when it comes to dealing with others and may have a better sense of paying attention to what their body is doing so that they do not have to answer for it later.

 

A successful women will pay attention to your nonverbal actions to see if what you are saying will match up to what your body is saying or doing.

 

It is not ever a good idea to lie to someone but lying to a successful woman would be a mistake especially if they have kids because they are used to seeing kids make things up to not get into trouble. If she thinks for a second that you are not being truthful chances are you are done and will not get a second chance.  

 

Body language of successful women and double standards

Over the years with women being around business the unofficial rules have relaxed but there still is plenty of room to make changes. You may see successful women show the signs of frustration while dealing with others especially if there are double standards as to what they are doing and dealing with men. Women can touch other women or men but its not the other way around for women getting touched by men there is a double standard but that isn’t a bad thing.

 

 

Body language of successful women as times change

It’s a good thing to see women making their way more into the business world. A recent article said that 70% of all new businesses being started are by women. It will be interesting to see the types of changes that move forward as women become more successful and the culture of business changes. Hopefully the endeavors work out for the women and you will get more of a chance to read the nonverbal actions and signs of successful women in the future.

 

Reading the body language of anyone can be beneficial to your professional, personal and even dating life. Home study course can be used when you want and at your own pace.

 

As always I would like to thank you in advance for your comments and or questions about reading the body language of successful women.

Body language of glasses

Body language of glasses: When looking at the body language of men or women who wear glasses there is definitely some nonverbal communication going on whether they think so or not.  

 

When you look at a man or a woman you make some assumptions about them and how they will be or even their intelligence level. When you make these assumptions you will fall into the law of reaction.

 

Body language experts will share with you it only matters what the viewer thinks is going on and this is important to note as you will think certain things about people by the way that they dress, their accessories and even the way that they look physically.

 

Is that a bad thing…

 

Not really as we are a very visual society and part of that is making judgments about people and their nonverbal actions.

Body language of glasses and your thoughts

When you see or think of a man or woman with glasses what are some of your common thoughts about the person that is wearing them

  • ·         Smart
  • ·         Book worm
  • ·         Some may find glasses sexy
  • ·         Interesting
  • ·         Educated
  • ·         Mild mannered
  • ·         Persuader
  • ·         No thoughts or beliefs at all about the person

 

No matter what your first thought is there was a message sent by the man or the woman who has the accessory

 

Body language of glasses and location

When looking at the body language of men or women that wear glasses you will want to look at their location.

 

Are they at school?

 

Are they at work?

 

Should they have surgery to not have to wear glasses?

 

Do they have a lack of confidence in social situations because they are wearing glasses?

 

Sometimes men and or women will not wear their glasses to certain events because they think that they will be judged socially. In some of these instances they may wear contacts or the men or the woman may go without their glasses even if it could be a safety concern for driving or being out in public.

 

 

Body language of glasses a super hero article

For some people who are in the business of persuading others they may have frames that are real from glasses but the lenses are not prescription. Now at first this persuasion strategy may sound strange but wait a second.

 

Who was the smartest kid in school?

 

The kid with glasses…

Who was the kid you couldn’t hit or be mad at?

 

The kid with glasses…

 

Who had all of the smart answers?

 

The boy or girl with glasses

 

Sure they were made fun of but they had special protection and because they had glasses those boys and girls become men and women and now the have special powers

 

..because they are smart and have all of the answers and you can’t get mad at them

 

So in this case the glasses can be a prop that gives the wearer power but it’s also a disguise or these glasses give the man, woman, boy or girl confidence when they are worn and that helps make them become a super hero article.

 

When someone has glasses on you may see body language of confidence or you may even see a lack of confidence.

 

Whatever you see in the body language or the nonverbal communication of men or women you will want to take the time to base line the situation so that you interpret the signs and signals the right way.

Learning how to read body language can be fun even when interpreting what glasses mean for nonverbal communication.

Body language of cufflinks

Body language of cufflinks: When looking at the nonverbal communication others you can look to their accessories to give you some nonverbal clues.

 

When looking at the body language of cufflinks you will want to look at the man or the woman wearing them. Traditionally cufflinks are an accessory that men would typically wear but some designers are adding cufflinks to women’s accessories.  In some instances they may add confidence or help with the lack of confidence.

 

There are a few things to look at when determining the nonverbal communication of an accessory and what it contributes to the body lf the man or the woman wearing them:

  • ·         What are they wearing, a suit or just a nice shirt
  • ·         Where are they and does the clothing match the occasion
  • ·         Is the man or woman showing off jewelry
  • ·         Are the cufflinks a super hero article or a trophy?

 YouTube Preview Image

Body language of cufflinks and a suit

Cufflinks add one more layer of customization when it comes to dressing up. There are all sorts of different designs and or materials that cufflinks are made of. For some men that dress up they match their cufflinks to their ties and or other accessories. Depending upon what the cufflinks look like they may or may not add to the appearance or the persona of the man or the woman wearing them. Some may say that a suit with a shirt that has French cuffs that allow cufflinks is more elegant and more professional.

 

Body language of a special occasion

There are some men or women who only wear their special shirt and cufflinks for a certain occasion. This would be for them to dress up for a special event and for them it isn’t an everyday item. This is where the extra layer of elegance for some would be. Cufflinks seem to be a special item to wear but not something every day.

 

Body language of persuasion and cufflinks

You may see top persuaders wear cufflinks as it does add to their appearance. For some people cufflinks are intimidating because they are not normally an everyday item for some people. In some industries the persona of the person wearing them makes them seem more professional or even the idea that there will be extra cost involved.

 

Body language of a status symbol

Just like any other accessory there is a wide range of options when it comes to cost and or design. You may find threaded balls that can be used as the cufflink but if one to wear the silk balls for a night out on town he or she may be judged for not “dressing up” enough for the situation these designs can run from $10- 15 for the set, so they may be considered the first step in cuff links

There are ranges from $6 to $2,500 or more for cufflinks as every major designer makes some for their clothes. You may find companies like:

  • ·         Scott Kay
  • ·         King Baby
  • ·         Konstantino
  • ·         David Donahue
  • ·         Burberry
  • ·         Louis Vuitton
  • ·         Gucci
  • ·         Tateossian RT

 

These manufacturers may have all sorts of designs from a classic silver plate with minimal designs all the way to football teams, animals, insects or other types of objects. For the cufflinks above the $150 range there are so many options to choose from;

  

  • ·         Silver and other jewelry
  • ·         Diamonds and or other precious stones
  • ·         Buffalo nickels and or other types of monetary coins   

 

As a status symbol the accessories for the accessories can be fairly intricate and layered with precious stones and or metals. For the men or the women who wear cufflinks that are status symbols you may see them intently showing off what they are wearing. Maybe the man or the woman moves their arm awkwardly in order to get those around to see what they are wearing as an accessory. You may even see the man or the woman not showing off but still getting attention from the design in the cufflinks or the way that they match up with the clothing.

 

Body language of cufflinks and super hero articles or trophies

For some that wear cufflinks they may be a trophy or a gift. For some they may have been worn to a special occasion and have a special meaning. It may be that they were given as a prize or as an introduction into a group. When looked at like they have special powers they may be a super hero article. Now in an instance like this you may see the man or the woman wearing the cufflinks showing off or even being as covert as possible while wearing the trophy or the super hero article.

 

No matter who is wearing the cufflinks and where you are you will want to baseline the situation to see what is going on. The person wearing the accessories they may or may not be wearing a suit but there is a reason why they are wearing them. Just take your time and baseline the interactions that they are having nonverbally. Many times questions about interesting looking cufflinks may be a good opener when looking for a reason to start a conversation. Many times it’s an easy compliment and a way to get talking especially when they are intricate.

 

There is so much to the nonverbal stories and actions behind accessories and it’s not always an easy read.

 

Learning how to read body language and or interpret nonverbal communication can be fun and easy to learn:

Body language of shyness

 

Body language of shyness: The nonverbal actions of shy men or women can help you understand the nonverbal actions that someone would take.

 

Many times introverts or shy people will have many of the same traits or characteristics. Just because someone may have one or two of the traits of a shy person does not mean that the person is shy. It is always important to base line the body language of a man or woman before you draw your conclusions or thoughts about who or what they are.  Whether it is for business, pleasure or even dating these signs and signals will help you interpret how to interact with a shy person.  

 

Nonverbal communication of a shy man or woman may include:

  • ·         Little or no eye contact
  • ·         Less proximity around others
  • ·         Nonverbal actions of the arms and or head

 YouTube Preview Image

Many times people who are shy have little or no eye contact with others. You may see a man, man woman or child try to avoid eye contact with others while out walking around in public or even private. For some this may be a condition that becomes consistent over time and become a normal action.

 

Shy people know that eye contact may create conversation or interactions. Many times interactions with crazy people happens because good or strong eye contact is made.

 

Proximity of shy people and others

When a shy person is around others you may see that they do what they can to stay away from the people that they do not know. Even with some friends you may or may not see the shy man or woman even near or in the Bell Bubble or within the intimate distance of friends. In a social setting you may not see a shy person in the center of the room without a friend or group of friends. Shy people tend to stay out of the possibility of even being the center of attention.

 

Many times shy people will not wear flashy clothes but there is a chance that some will do so to get attention drawn to them so that people will approach them.

 

Nonverbal actions of shy people

As you observe the nonverbal actions of shy men or women you may see that their arms are folded or their head may be down. Now this isn’t always the case just as with every other aspect of body language there isn’t always exact actions that take place but many common ones that you can baseline.

 

How to interact with shy men or women

Interacting with shy people can go wrong if you act too quickly because not all of the time are they used to close proximity or others talking to them. You will want to watch the body language of a shy man or women as you approach them as you will literally see them start to get uncomfortable when you have entered into their private space and that space may be larger than for someone who is very outgoing.

 

When approaching a shy woman you would want to enter into her field from an area what she can she and the best way may be from an angle instead of head on or from behind.

 

You will not want to touch a shy man or woman too quickly as this may be too much for them to process.

 

Smiling may help with your endeavor but if you smile too much or too hard it may seem a little creepy or that you are trying too hard.

 

With shy men or women it is important to be patient with them as you interact with them just like anyone else but it may take even more time than normal
