Open Body Language
When you are having a conversation, your body language can be just as important as the words you say.
From our facial expressions to our body movements, the things we don't say can still convey volumes of information.
Begin with open, flirty body language. To keep things smooth, focus on keeping your chin up, shoulders back, chest out, and spine up straight when either sitting or standing.
Whether you’re sitting or standing, angle your body toward your date. This lets your date know that you’re paying attention and listening to them. This also helps you make eye contact with your date, which can make you feel more connected.
If you’re walking around, don’t worry about facing your date (since that might be tough).
If you’re sitting at a table, scoot in close so you can hear every word your date is saying. If you’re on a park bench, angled slightly inwards so your body faces theirs.
Push your shoulders back, line your neck up with your chest, and engage your abs slightly to keep your posture (and your body) looking good. Try not to overthink it, though! If you feel stiff or awkward, just sit or stand like you normally would.
Going on a date is all about being open with another person. Try to keep your legs in a neutral position when you sit down.
Similarly, you should keep your arms uncrossed, too. Crossing your arms can make you look angry or disinterested in your date, and no one wants that!
