If you want to be successful in dating, body language is everything. It’s more important than your physical appearance. Solid body language is the best way to make a strong first impression and get him or her to notice you for the right reasons, so its importance can hardly be understated. Here are some basic but essential tips to help you sharpen your body language:
In any social situation, eye contact is an important tool for connecting with other people. Looking into someone’s eyes signals that you’re present, you’re listening and you’re open to creating a relationship.

That’s why eye contact is a key body
language tactic for dating if you really want to show someone you’re ready for more.
Bite Your Lower Lip
A little bit coy, a little bit sexy, this move is especially enticing. It’s flirtatious without being overtly forward and works especially well if you’re a woman. Try it and find out for yourself.
This one is typically more of a female thing—as some guys don’t really have enough hair to do this—and it’s another coy signal of flirtation. Playing with your hair works exceptionally well if you have long luscious locks that your potential partner likely wants to run his or her fingers through.
Graze Their Thigh or Arm
Brushing your hand against your date’s thigh or arm is a harmless way to get some physical contact without being inappropriate. He or she will know that you’re interested on a more carnal level while you’re still keeping everything playful and light.
Uncross Your Arms
Having your arms folded over your chest is a clear signal of standoffishness. Even if you don’t mean to come off as closed off, holding this position will send that message. Be aware of your arm placement and make sure they stay loose at your sides or gently folded on the table in front of you.
