One foot on top of the other

I've noticed many times this weird pose when talking to women, where they put their other foot on top of the other and basically stand on one leg. It's like the front of the foot or mainly the toes are resting on top of the other foot.
Actually requires somewhat good balance to do, but they casually pull it off and just keep talking Smile

Just really curious what this means because I've encountered it so many times. I've searched around about this, but haven't found any info on this.

Any ideas what this is signaling?

@DannyC,
That their shoes are uncomfortable. Seriously. Heels suck.

@DannyC,
I don't know.

Why do some men hock and spit all the time?

Why do american men sit and cross their legs as if to put them together they would sterilize themselves?

Why do think Radio Shack is an interesting place?

It's a secret code that women have to communicate warnings to each other. This warning is "this guy is an a$$hole stay away from him."

What happened to all the bitching about manspreading? Maybe they connected somehow....

I think men and women would both be happier with less griping and nore sex.

@neptuneblue,
I bet chai did an edit. I'm fairly sure I saw what Max quoted. Maybe being quoted isn't the same as being replied to.

Can't swear that's what happened, but as I said, I do think I saw it in the original.

If you see me walking on my feet
And I start to cry each time we meet
Walk on my, walk on my

Foot, believe
That you are coma toes
Just let them breathe
In private 'cause each time they see you
They break down and cry
And walk on my (don't stop)
And walk on my (don't stop)
And walk on my

I just can't get over bruising you
And so if they seem broken and blue
Walk on my, walk on my

I had to click to look to see what he quoted, and no I never wrote anything like that.
Why would I? That would make no sense as it totally has nothing to do with what the OP said.
Never wrote anything like that in any other thread, or anywhere at all.

It’s not something I would ever think to say.

@chai2,
Are you guys that old? It is a song lyric by Lizzo, for God's sake. Lizzo is a rather popular singer who several decades after Diane Warwick. (Believe it or not, there is music that came after Warwick... they keep making it).

I didn't attribute that to Chai.

Learned habit from other men. Common among smokers and youth. They want to fit in and makes them look cool among their friends. Used to do it too.

Why do american men sit and cross their legs as if to put them together they would sterilize themselves?

Squishing your balls in a tight space isn't comfortable. Also, balls generally like lower temperatures (I think this is the general idea nature had with ball sacks) and this is why it's nice to give them more space and ventilation.

Why do think Radio Shack is an interesting place?
Same here. I guess it's because I like electronics.

Who/when/why were you talking to women who weren't wearing shoes? It can't be that many women (I'd guess) and if that's the case? That's called anecdotal evidence. You really shouldn't call something a trend or the basis of a theory if your sample size is obviously too small.

Ask them why they stand like that. No one here can figure out what you might be yammering about.

@tsarstepan,
It has happened with 4 different gals all at my place. Some have done it multiple times, but can't remember exactly how many instances there are exactly.
The first time I just thought that interesting how she's standing. The second time I was like "hmmm...that weird, shes doing the same thing".
The third and fourth time I was beginning to think this can't be all a coincidence. Has to be some sort of unconscious body language going on.
Every time we were talking about this and that, nothing special and these weren't my gf's, just friends of my spouse.

Can't say if this is a small sample or not...obviously big enough to peak my intrest in what this might mean.

Edit:

I don't think asking them why they stand like that would be any good. They wouldn't know because body language is usually unconscious behavior. Anyway, I like it this way, so they wouldn't become self-conscious about it, so I can just observe how often it happens. Smile

@Linkat,
I live in Finland. We take our shoes off when we come inside. I think this isn't so typical in the US.

@DannyC,
Perhaps it’s just a simple matter of having cold feet. Yours is a Cold climate and you’re in winter season.

@Ragman,
Hmm, we have a heated tile floor, so I doubt it's that. All nice and warm in the wintertime.

@DannyC,
I doubt that it means anything at all body language-wise; however, if they were to stand on your foot then we’d have a significantly different story altogether.

Why do [men and not women] think Radio Shack is an interesting place?



My daughter likes going to electronics stores (Radio shack isn't around much any more). She likes to do the little breadboard soldering kits and she has installed software controlled lighting around her room (a project she initiated on her own).You bring any engineer past those little shelves of breadboards, linear amplifiers and 555 timers and we start seeing visions of things we can build. We get off on this. That's what makes an engineer.

Why wouldn't I want my daughter to be interested in electronics stores? My field, software engineering, is about 90% male. As an industry we are discussing how to get women more interested in engineering. If more women are interested in "Radio Shack", it is a damn good step in the right direction.

Chai is pushing these gender stereotypes that are actually harmful to efforts to get more women interested in engineering.
