Flashing shows signs of pleasing. When we flash, we arch our brows less than one-fifth of a second, and–like most gravity-defying behaviors–it is considered positive and may also be used to thank someone or add emphasis when talking. Babies who are just a few months old light up when they see their mothers do this.
1. The eyebrow flash
Everyone has been winked at at some point or another. 😉 We generally take it as a sign of flirtation. It also gives us a welcomed split-second break that stops continuous eye contact from turning creepy. Winking is a way of softening what could be threatening continuous eye contact.
3. Single eyebrow raise
A single eyebrow raised indicates surprise. But throw in a lovely smile? That may be a sign they are interested! But don’t rush in yet… Depending on the context, it can also mean someone is skeptical.
4. Raising eyebrows
Moving from the single raise to the double, now we mean business. Women pluck their eyebrows higher up their forehead because it makes us look more helpless. This actually releases hormones in a man’s brain to protect and defend the female.
5. Rapid eye blinking
Dr. David Givens, director of the Center for Nonverbal Studies, says that rapid eyeblink (or “eyelash flutter”) means “you’ve raised the blinker’s level of psychological arousal… faster blinking may reflect sexual excitement.”
