Not many people are aware of the fact that everyone – men and women communicate more non verbally (93%) than verbally. This is known as body language and if you know what to look out for when you are trying to meet someone, then you can find out if that person is really into you. This can help you reduce your dating mistakes and avoid picking up the wrong signals. It doesn’t take time to master and is well worth reading up about so you can find that special someone and never be left guessing again.
The basics of body language are easy to learn and many of the signals you should look out for will often be ones you recongnise in yourself or your friends or ex partners. You should practice looking for these signals in people close to you as this will help you improve your body language skills. One great advantage of being able to read body language is that you can use the skill to decide if a girl or man is really into you and would be receptive to being asked out by you. Or if a person you are on a first date with wishes to be kissed at the end of the night.
So here are the things you should look out for in a Man or Woman:
