What do you think when you see a couple of people sitting in front of each other and making small talk? You might think they are trying to get to know each other better but the fact of a matter is that they don’t have a clue of what’s going on and how to behave. They will most probably be on a 1st date and both of them probably wished they knew how the date was going. It would be rude to ask someone how a date is going point blank and what’s worse is that it will sound pathetic as well. So, how can you determine how a date’s going? You learn to read a person’s body language of course.
First of all, see if the other person is making eye contact with you. If yes, you need to determine whether it is inviting or creepy. We have heard the saying, “The eyes are the windows to the soul,” and that can’t be more true in such situations. See where your partner’s concentration is. Is he/she concentrating more on their food or more on you? This is a major indication of whether the date is going well or not.
Hints and Tips
Now let’s take a look at some complex body language hints.
Have the two of you made any physical contact yet? Or has every hint of contact led to both of you jerking away from each other with horror? Does the other person lean in when talking to you? A person’s body tends to react to the way a person is feeling whether they like it or not. And if there is a lot of touching, you can rest assured the date is going well.
There are also quite a few visual indicators which will be involuntary but can tell a lot about how a person feels. For example, if your date is sitting with his or her arms open, it means that they are open & feel attracted to you. On the other hand, crossed arms mean just the opposite. Is your date constantly staring at your lips or maybe touching their own? This is a clear cut sign that they want to kiss you or want you to kiss them. There are many other indicators that a woman wants to kiss you including trying to brush off a crumb from your face, closing their eyes with a dreamy look, inclining their head ever so slightly, etc. If you notice any of these signals, it means you are doing extremely well and your date definitely wants to kiss you.
If you have just this basic knowledge on what to look out for in another person’s body language, you will be far ahead of the competition in the dating game. You will definitely have your partner eating out of your hands in no time. Alternatively, you will be able to tell when a date isn’t going to well and cut it short. The advantages of reading body language are infinite. So what are you waiting for?
