15 Signs of a Woman's Body Language & What They Mean

Some of these are already proven body language signs and some of these I found by observing my own behaviour. Sometimes I'm the only one to notice but if you look closely you'll see...

#1. Suddenly shaking my head without apparent reason, or chomping down my jaw - this happens after having a bad idea or memory of making mistakes and feeling convicted or embarrassed and I've decided it was a very bad idea.

#2. When hungry I often find myself chewing on the inside of my mouth.

#3. Holding my hair over my mouth is to prevent talking before I think of what I should actually say.

#4. Hands rubbing face like a child when they're tired - means tired or sometimes comfortably warm but mostly needing sleep.

#5. Gripping my hair like it's a rope happens when I'm cold.

#6. Eyebrows quickly raised individually, to keep eyes open because I'm so tired. It happens most while driving or reading in bed before knocking off.

#7. Right eyebrow raised and sits for a second means that what I'm seeing or what we're talking about is inappropriate and I'm feeling uncomfortable. In the same situation, I sometimes shiver when it's not even cold.

#8. Hands touching face to almost cover mouth means that I'm unsure. Touching your face is usually a tell that someone is lying but I don't often like to lie, and I'm terrible at it. For me having my hand in the way is to stop myself saying something too soon, without being sure.

#9. Hands running through each other is a cold thing or because I'm anxious/nervous/uncomfortable. Breathing will also be heavier so it's not hard to tell.

#10. The flex - When your back slightly stretches while your arms go in the air or hands move back behind the neck or crossed forearms sit on top of your head. This is something that happens in a conversation or while watching something I'm interested in, and it says I'm open to the current suggestion or topic and that I want to see how it goes.

#11. Scuffing my feet while I walk happens when I'm in a happy mood and thinking of lovely things like sweetly kissing my boyfriend.  It's the good, excited, scared, wondering feelings of loveishness.

#12. While reading a book lying on my bed, I find that I also sometimes scrunch my toes, bringing my big toe back and forth, when I'm content and happy. Obviously, this wouldn't happen while reading a horrible part of a book, but I've recently found that if I've got bare feet I will do it even while standing when excited.

#13. *DEEP BREATH - SIGH* When I let go of a deep breath of air it often takes something else with it. It's letting go of something that was troubling, unrealistic or out of good timing i.e. was going to argue but I decided not to. My boyfriend, Levi knows this and often asks what I was thinking about after I sigh- but the trouble is, I'll usually have forgotten. It's something that only women do, apparently.

#14. Hands on hips is for when I'm waiting. I have done all I can myself and answers must now come from someone else. 'I don't know - take over please.'

#15 Being reckless and/or throwing things happens when I don't care much about anything or I'm feeling hurt i.e. film festival flyers ending up tossed all over the road. It is a sad time and either it needs to be waited out and give some time to be frustrated or things need to be said sooner to fix it.

So do you do any of these things too? Do the women around you? And what other things have you noticed about yourself while attempting to grow up? Tell me below in the comments :)

happy couple app review.

Levi an I have been using a relationship quiz app for a month or so now.

It keeps us talking about topics that aren't currently part of our lives. Like what do we think we would be like as parents.

When I started I was confused and didn't know how to use it or where everything was, but I can look back and say I wasn't actually missing anything. Also I like the bright colours :)

You can see where we do best in the different topics as questions are answered correctly. This here shows that we probably have more of a friendship dynamic with our relationship.

It personalises the questions by substitution your partner's name, so you never forget who the question is about :p

And tells you when your partner has played and the results are in...

Sometimes the answers available are quite extreme and there's a lack of medium options.

That's when being able to write your own answer comes in handy.

What would you answer for this question? Can you answer it right for me too?

2 Cautionary Arguments against The Passion & Message Bible

2 Peter 1:20-21 English Standard Version Knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.


Do not expect the information in the following article to be particularly subjective or unnecessarily negative.

My bible is the 1984 New International Version (NIV) by the International Bible Society and was published by Zondervan. It was worked on by over 100 translators, from all over the world and from a number of church denominations. It is a balance between word-for-…

Why I'm Not Using Hormonal Birth Control

When I was recently trying out a new birth control pill, I immediately started showing symptoms that I could not deal with on a daily basis. Then I got to thinking about the long term effects  this drug could have and it was then, at 4 days into my pack, that I remembered the dreadful dark depression that I suffered the first time I was on the pill.

That season of depression was now 5 years ago, but it brought to light some on going mental health issues that I still have to live with today. That depression that was either brought on by my first few months on GINET, or my pre-existing poor mental health was catalysed by the drug; turning from chronic anxiety to very suicidal depression.

I only wish I knew that I had a history of anxiety. Instead I put the daily bats in my belly down as morning sickness, or butterflies due to a boy I liked. Back then I had no idea that mental health and mental illnesses were a thing, or that other people in my family were medicated for such problems.
