    Cool Push toward

    What's the exact meaning of "push toward" in the following sentence:

    Every time he pushed his squashed, bespectacled face toward mine I was enveloped in the sour aura of his tooth decay

    Is it meaning:

    1) He just approaches his face to the other's

    2) Rather he embeds it, let's say pretending some kind of psychological aggression.

    Tank You

    I think both of the above. The author is wanting to show that this person is invading his personal space and that it is not welcomed or wanted.
