Body language Help

Hi,

I went to my friends store to buy some groceries and when I saw him, I told him I had a tummy tuck and I showed him, and he turned away from me a little bit and took a drink of his coffee. Then he turned back around and said nice. What does that mean?

Thanks,
Crystal

I would say it was TMI.

That sounds like a pretty neutral response.

ditto

Sounds like a neutral reaction when you don't know what else to say having just had TMI shoved down your throat.

That's kind of gross. What was he supposed to say? "That's great because you really needed it, hey nice scars!"?

I'm wondering what she was expecting from him.

Its not like I showed him my scars. I just opened up my jacket which I had clothes on and I showed him that I did get a tummy tuck from how I was before. he saw NO skin. I wouldn't do that!!!! Its something that I am pretty proud of because I have lost a total of 170lbs. So he saw me when I was overweight and its just showing him after image. Thats all!

I just dont understand body language very well so I didnt understand what he was implying. The first feeling I got when he did react with his body that way was like he was trying not to show to much expression. You know what I mean.

He may simply have been surprised and not known what to say.

Okay, your OP sounded like you were showing it all.
