I was just reading a forum on the body language of women, gave my two cents. However, it sprung up a few questions for me. I thought it would be interesting to hear the feed back.
What sort of body language do men tend to use to show they're interest/possible interest?
How do they most prefer to show their possible interest on CM?
How do men prefer women to display their possible interest on CM?
Well, it does very from person to person, so I can only speak for myself on this, but the way I indicate interest on CM is to start by answering her interview questions if I can or just send a simple emotigram.
I always pray first, that if she is the one, that God will help prompt her to respond, but if she isn't, that He will intervene before I end up wasting my effort pursuing a relationship with someone who is actually the future wife of someone else. (This is just a personal caution of mine; I really hate the idea of dating someone, breaking up, and then having to leave everything about our relationship as an "old flame" of the past that now needs to be extinguished for the sake of future relationships)
Anyhow, if she would reply likewise by sending an emotigram or answering my interview back, then I would advance another small step by sending a personalized message that says what I liked about her profile, with the hopes that she may respond and we can get a conversation going. Then I would try to ask about how CM is working for her and if she has found anyone whom she is interested in yet. If she hasn't, I'd ask if I may continue to message her or if I am being a bother. (Not that I've ever gotten this far yet...)
However, it's like I said; this is only how I'd show interest, but I can't guarantee that others would use the same approach. I've had the experience more then once where someone answers my interview or sends an emotigram but utterly ignores my reply, so it seems that there are some who would contact those whom they are not even interested in. I really don't understand it myself...
My suggestion would be to ask in your interview what they think of you after reading your profile. Try putting in a question that would go something like this:
"What are your thoughts about me after reading my profile? A) 'I'm not interested in this girl at all; I don't even know why I'm answering her interview!' B) 'She seems nice, but I don't think she's quite my personal type' C) 'She seems pretty decent, but I don't know just yet if I should be interested in her or not' D) Elizabeth, I hope you will message me' E) 'I'd probably date someone like you. You may be just my type!' "
This would probably be the best way to find out just how interested someone is in you. If you try it, I hope it helps.
