YOU ARE FLIRTATIOUS
Yes believe it or not, Like every aspect of body language, context is key here: Assuming you don’t take this position for pure comfort, stacking your knees to one side, and propping yourself up on one hand is thought to be flirtatious. “Women are neurologically wired to take up less space when they are flirting,” says Glass, who sees this position as one way women consolidate their limbs in an effort to attract a partner. Meanwhile, while leaning in the direction where your knees point — foreseeable, towards a potential mate — simultaneously makes your upper body more available to that person.
