Men Sitting With Legs Wide Open

What does it mean when a man sits across from you with legs super wide open leaning toward you at the table? I am female.

Our Answer



Hi Elisa,

When a guy is taking up a lot of space with their body, like spreading the legs and arms, he's likely showing that he's extraverted (sociable, assertive) and that he feels confident in his surroundings.

It is often used as a flirting technique to present yourself as confident and having social skills.

Leaning forward is like pointing a body part towards you, often seen as showing interest towards the person the body part is pointing to. This sounds a bit technical, but if you have ever flirted with a guy by looking over your shoulder, you probably know what I mean.

So, summing it all up, I think he's showing great interest in you! I hope it's mutual... love is such a wonderful thing! :-)
