So you met a great guy and want to know what you can do to make yourself seem more attractive? There are some proven scientific principles that you can use to help with that very thing. It’s not about what you say but more about your body language. These nonverbal clues can make yourself more interesting to your date.
Mirroring is when you subtly copy the behaviors of the person you’re with. So, if they shift or smile, you mirror those behaviors. A study by the Behavioural Science Institute in the Netherlands found that the more attracted we are to people, the more we mimic their behavior. If you struggle to express your feelings, mirroring your date’s behavior is a great way to subconsciously show them you’re interested.
This is when you face your entire body from head to toe toward your date. Research has found that we subconsciously point our toes in the direction we want to go. So, if your date stays engaged and pointed toward you, it’s a great sign. But if their toes are aimed at the exit, they might not be having as good of a time as they appear to be.
Whether you’re standing against a bar or sitting across a table, when your date leans toward you, it’s a clear sign they are attracted and want to be closer to you. The opposite is also true. When they sit far back in their chair or take a step back from you, it shows their discomfort with the environment or conversation.
4) Be Sweet
A fun study conducted by Purdue University found that sweet tastes make us feel more attracted. So, if you want to end your date on an attraction high, treat them to dessert.
