MANCHESTER, England, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- A British psychologist said his research indicates foot movements are one of the most powerful indicators of whether a woman finds a suitor attractive.

Professor Geoff Beattie, dean of psychological sciences at the University of Manchester, said he examined how people move their feet in a number of situations and found women tended to move their feet away from their bodies, adopting more open-leg stances, when speaking with someone they find attractive, The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

Beattie said crossing the legs or keeping them tucked under the body is a sign of a lack of sexual attraction among women.

The professor said he found men did not reveal sexual attraction through their feet, but both men and women signal they are being dishonest with an unnatural lack of foot movement. He said men also tend to move their feet more when they are nervous, while women keep their feet still while feeling the same emotion.
