How to

Upgrade your body language

New Year always brings with it plenty of self-improvement advice and if you're single, most of those resolutions are going to involve upping your dating success. Here's a quick and easy guide to using body language to your advantage. 

01 - Don’t be too hung up on trying to read “signals” that show whether your date is interested in you. Just relax and concentrate on getting to know them.

02 - Use positive, relaxed body language. Sit up straight, but don’t be too rigid. By looking comfortable and relaxed, you’ll put her at ease, too.

03 - Strong eye contact is very important. If you don’t gaze into her eyes, then you’ll look wimpy and nervy.

04 - Women are more tactile than men, so if they touch you, touch them back within a minute. If they like you, then the more you touch each other, the faster you can go to hand holding and kissing.

05 - It’s not a business meeting, so don’t shake hands when you meet. Instead, a quick hug and kiss on the cheek starts the date off as you mean to go on.
