Figuring out if someone is into you isn't always as straightforward as you may like it to be. That's why keeping an eye out for the signals from body language that someone's not interested can be super helpful. There's nothing worse than spending a ton of time and energy chasing someone, only to find out weeks (or even months later) that they're not really feeling it. The good news is that, once you know what to look for, you'll be able to spot someone who is interested
To better understand the physical cues that signal someone might not be vibing, I spoke to body language experts Traci Brown, author of Persuasion Point: Body Language and Speech for Influence and Patti Wood, author of SNAP: Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language, and Charisma. According to Brown, while you're analyzing someone's body language, you can also make an effort to send out signals to let them know you're interested. "The best thing to do is subtly match their movements," Brown tells Elite Daily. "This sends the deep unconscious message that you're just like them and people love people who are like them. So that means if someone scratches their head, you wait five to 10 seconds and then gently scratch your head in the same way."
Once you're farther along in your interaction with each other, here are some signs that could mean they're not invested.
