Voted by you as by far the most popular reclining position, the side saddle is a surprisingly flirtatious pose! Sitting sideways with your legs together enhances their slender shape, although holding them close to you could say you’re unsure about opening up to a potential partner.
Sitting with your chest pointed towards a person, on the other hand, indicates interest and availability, but the knees say more than any part of your body! Sitting up or lying down, the direction of your knees indicates what is capturing your attention most.

More common than you’d think, sitting upright with crossed ankles is an indication that you’re holding something back. Similar to biting your lip, it’s an anxious movement – a way of stopping yourself from saying or expressing something.
This could mean your mind is on other things you’re unsure how to express. If your fists are clenched too, there’s an immediate issue on your mind.
