Using body language in dating

He'll also stand directly in front of you to show full attention and lean forward to get closer.

Some experts call it "visual voyaging" — his eyes take a little cruise around your body, stopping momentarily at the prettiest ports.

For some men, this might mean a subtle tie adjustment along with a silent prayer that you'll notice the flash of movement.

You lock eyes with the handsome man sitting across the dimly lit bar, and instantly, 1,000 questions rip roar through your mind — is he single? Is he sitting by himself simply because his date is late?

But when the eye contact continues, you know he's looking for a reason.

Women choose from no less than 52 moves to show men they're interested.

The average man chooses from a maximum of 10 to attract a female.

When we first see someone we're attracted to, our eyebrows rise and fall. The whole thing lasts about a fifth of a second and it happens everywhere in the world — to everyone regardless of age, race or class.

Lifting our brows pulls the eyes open and allows more light to reflect off the surface, making them look bright, large and inviting.

It's an extension of preening and it's astonishingly accurate.

Women have always made the first move and orchestrated the pace, flow and direction of romantic relationships.

Masters of intuition and emotional manipulation, adept at body language, able to gauge the emotional temperature of a room quicker than our nipples stiffen in a breeze, you can bet on it that if he's on his way over, armed with courage and a pickup line, you were the one who lured him.

If he takes it off completely, he's imagining his shoes under your bed.
