Nonverbal Communication Analysis # 2203:
A Body Language Metric of Intimacy and Affection -
How Do YOU cuddle?

Once a relationship begins, and we progress through the various stages of intimacy, one of the last places we let our lovers touch is our feet. Provided the relationship continues, this touching will occur the vast majority of the time. Of course, there are some people who never are comfortable with foot touching, but these are a relative minority; but they must be viewed through the nonverbal filter of objectivity. It may not be that their feet are sensitive - it may just be you.

Unfortunately many people cannot distinguish sex from affection. When cuddling, once the feet touch - it strongly suggests that true affection, and perhaps love is present. Conversely, once this habit is established - a cessation of this bed room body language is a signal of waning love and affection. It is one of many nonverbal signs that an extra-marital affair may be occurring or of an impending break-up - for affection needs and seeks an outlet. So if you suspect your lover is cheating on you, or your relationship has developed a serious rift - how your feet interact may be the first place to look.
