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

Hi,

thank you I do feel better with more energy. I like how you said,

Just respond to the words people use when they talk to you. He said, "Nice." You could reply , "Yes! I'm absolutely thrilled!" and then ask him if there are any nice strawberries today, or something like that.

Thats great! I will remember that! Thank you.

No but, I do think some expressions and movements mean something. And that why I felt but didnt understand the body language that he did.

Is this a romantic interest?

Look, most of us learn how to react in a certain situation. He may not have known how to react when faced with that particular situation. It's not like we're faced with that every day and get used to reacting appropriately to it. You know, like some people get flustered in abnormal situations - being flustered doesn't necessarily convey their feelings. So, sometimes, reactions don't have a lot of meaning.

There wasn't much detail about body language to comment on. So, you think he turned away because he likes you? I'm confused. The encounter you described was rather light on details and I what I envisioned from your description was him turning away out of shock because maybe he wasn't expecting you to full on show him the results of your surgery in a store. Also, if he thinks you're in a relationship with someone else, could it be that he thought you were being totally inappropriate?

If you're interested in pursuing him, I guess the first thing is to let him know you're now single.
