It is also a good sign if your date's palms are open, says Jeremy Nicholson, doctor of social and personality psychology.
If it looks like your date is “copying” your movements, that’s a good sign.
Mirroring, which is the act of unconsciously copying another’s movements, reveals common ground and mutual attraction, says Tracey Cox, a body language and relationship expert.
The same is true in personal relationships and mastering the art can give you a distinct advantage when it comes to dating not just because it will help you to read your date better but because understanding body language enables better self-awareness and self-control too.
We intuitively read people’s eyes and are continually interpreting someone’s glance to find out if they are listening, are angry with us, are friendly or avoiding interacting with us.
Choosing the right photo to represent your dating profile can be a struggle. For example, holding your arms up in a "V" or reaching out to grab something will look more attractive than crossing your arms, hunching your shoulders or curling up into a ball.
