Is Your Body Language Getting Your Message Across? From first impressions to first dates, a smile can be worth everything. A smile conveys warmth and friendliness. It helps put the other person at ease. Eye contact is an important nonverbal form of body language. Direct eye contact shows respect for the other person, although, in some cultures, it shows disrespect and defiance. However, in this culture, it shows interest in a person. In fact, if you want to show a man you’re really into him, look deeply into his eyes as he speaks to you. To catch the interest of a guy who you’re not on a date with (yet), catch his eye and smile, look away and hold his gaze the next time you glance over to him.
Ninety percent of our communication with one another is nonverbal. Sometimes what’s in your heart and mind doesn’t come across in your body language. When dating it’s important to make sure your body language is as sharp as your conversation skills.
Other signs that convey attraction include leaning toward a person, crossing your legs, tossing your hair, and lightly touching your arm and neck. When people are really attracted to each other they often lick their lips.
If you’re wondering about him/her? Same rules apply. Some signs to look out for include fidgeting, crossing arms across the chest and darting eyes are signs of indifference or worse. If he/she can’t stop scoping the room, it’s probably best to move on.
