Women will sometimes lean toward you with their backs straight if they like you. Leaning forward is a sign of interest, and women keep their backs straight because they want their posture to be good so that the rest of their figure looks better.

Men sometimes put one hand against the wall that the partner has her back against. The man is making himself look bigger by taking up more space while also entering her space as a sign of attraction.

Subtle Touching

When couples are interested in each other, they often brush hands or find other ways to touch each other. In the begining of a relationship, the touching is subtle because both people are feeling out if the other is interested. If your partner is finding subtle ways to touch you, then there's a sure sign of attraction.

People who love each other think about the other person's needs, and they want to be near the person. If your loved one doesn't wait for you when you're walking together, let's the door close in your face when you're out, or spends a lot of time on the phone, these are all indicators that the person doesn't care to be around you or show you courtesy.

Lack Of Touching

If the person that you love no longer finds ways to touch you, then your relationship could be in trouble. If, instead of placing the flyaway hair behind you ear he merely tells you to fix your hair, he's no longer feeling things for you.
