There's nothing wrong with being physical with your partner, whether it's holding hands, cuddling, or kissing. However, when a man is only after your body and not your heart, he will show signs that can be easy to miss. It's important to recognize these signs to protect ourselves from being used and giving ourselves to the wrong people. If he's doing these things he may be using your for sex.
His touch is always sexual
When you're in the company of a man who is only after your body, his touch will always have a sexual undertone. He'll initiate physical contact with the sole purpose of getting you into bed. You'll notice that his hand on your thigh or your shoulder will linger longer than necessary. If you're not comfortable with this type of physical contact, it's best to set boundaries with him sooner rather than later.
He's not interested in intimate conversations
A man who's interested in your heart will want to get to know you on a deeper level. He'll ask questions about your life, your goals, and your dreams. On the other hand, a man who's only interested in your body won't show much interest in what makes you who you are. He'll avoid talking about topics that require emotional intimacy and will steer the conversations towards something sexual.
He's not consistent
A man who's after your heart will show up consistently in your life. He'll make plans with you, keep them, and even surprise you with special gestures. However, a man who's only after your body will only show up when he wants something from you. He'll cancel plans last minute, not prioritize you in his life, and often ghost you after he's gotten what he wanted.
He doesn't show genuine interest in your life
A man who is interested in building a deeper connection will show genuine interest in your life. He'll be curious about your passions and hobbies and will want to be a part of your life. If a man only wants your body, he won't care about what's going on in your life outside the bedroom.
He's not looking for a serious commitment
A man who's after your heart is looking for a genuine connection and is willing to put in the work. He's looking for a long-term commitment and wants to build a future with you. A man who's only after your body isn't looking to commit to you, but rather commit only to his desires.
Recognizing the signs that a man is only interested in your body and not your heart is important if you want to protect yourself from heartbreak. Pay attention to his actions and consistency. Don't ignore red flags or settle for less than you deserve. Remember, you deserve someone who is interested in your heart, not just your body.
