I like this guy and we were at a dinner party sitting near each other talking. At one point, his knee was right next to mine but so subtle if I didn't pay attention I wouldn't have noticed.It stayed for a couple of minutes than,unfortunately,moved away. He did the same thing with his elbow and again,though it was so subtle.....My question is was this an accident or was he flirting or testing the waters? I know this sounds like a really naive question but I don't have a lot of experience and want to know if he is showing his interest in me or not. Thanks guys!

Guys, typically, are not very subtle and don't know dick about body language. But then again, this is just as far as I know. If I were to say one way or the other (because I really can't know for sure), I would say it was an accident. Don't get excited.

On this topic; the other night I was at the movies, with a girl I'm interested in. At this point we are still technically, "friends". We were with a large group, but we sat next to each other. This was a nicer movie theatre with big seats and armrests that you can move up and out of the way.

Conveniently, where we sat the armrest was already pushed up, and neither of us bothered to move it down. We sat close the entire time, and as the movie went on either I or her would move a bit but we'd always come back to the same place, leaning against one another. By the end of the movie she was actually resting my her head on my shoulder. Now, I realize this is probably a no brainer, but that couldn't have been unintentional, could it?

Hahaha! Not unless she has narcolepsy and is prone to randomly dropping her head everywhere. I've had girl/friends rest their head on me during long car trips...obviously that's because of the long car trip. In a movie theater, that's something else.
I probably should have mentioned that she said something to the effect of, "I'm tired I think I want to go to sleep right here." as she rested her head on me. It was right at the end of the movie, around 11:30 PM.

I guess it really makes little difference, since everytime she would move at all she'd always come back to just leaning against me as she was before. This is probably boring for you all. I'm just rehashing what was a fairly enjoyable evening for me.

Naaah. Those little moments are the best. I relive the hours up to my first kiss with a guy I liked - the getting closer, the holding hands - the kiss itself wasn't that exciting.

Anticipation is the best part. Enjoy it!

Married life is not exactly conducive to excitement. It is more about stability.

And Lavender, I agree with Mathias. He's into you.

It's going alright so far. I have to admit I'm in a better mood now than I've been in for probably year and a half.

I don't know. Sometimes I piss people off. Would you really want to be associated?

Lol guys don't usually accidentally flirt/touch when they know they're near girls. We have keen senses and know how to subliminally look like we're not caring. But if you like him, you wouldn't care...right? Or are you afraid he isn't really "into" you? Well here's a good thing to test: when you're both walking into each other in opposite directions, slip closer to him and see if he brushes you on purpose.

Lets face it, some people are more touchy feely then others.

I personally like my personal space, with the exception of it being someone I know well or someone I like.

I'll never forget one day I was riding in the elevator at work and out of nowhere this guy who works at the same place comes in with me. I never saw him before but he was super friendly and talking to me etc. Then, when I go to step off the elevator, he touches my back and tells me to take care. Of course, I really didn't think about it until after I stepped off the elevator and the door closed. Of course I Never saw the guy again, and he was cute! Kinda weirded me out, but in a good way.

Damn, I hate when that happens....:(
