What sort of dating best suits the baby boomers? When it comes to body language, New Zealand dating expert and owner of Matchcompany says body language is vitally important.
In line with other dating “coaches” like Evan Marc Katz and a recent HuffingtonPost article on body language in dating, Rosie Bowie suggested that making good eye contact was one of the sexiest things any woman could do when dating and in providing good, positive ‘vibes’.
“Frankly, it’s a question of prac tising as much as anything,” Mr Bowie says. “If you want to present an attractive, available face you need to ensure you’re not fluttering and avoiding the eyes. They truly are key to creating a successful date and relationship, if that’s what you’re looking for.”
Leg and arm-crossing is another signal of barrier-creation or attraction, depending upon how the arms or legs are placed. Crossed arms is a distinct barrier and moving legs away from the partner is another one. Pay attention to how the limbs are positioned if you want to send good body language signals to your date, she says.
Matchcompany, a New Zealand dating site that provides individualized dating and matchmaking services, is increasingly involved in providing dating coaching and dating seminars for NZ singles. “Finding someone who is attractive to you is fine, but finding the signals to send to them is just as important,” she says.
“Also important in the whole context of body language is, of course, actual language. Knowing how to say something can be just as important as what to say. It’s not that talk is cheap, but when you’re dating talk is part of the music to which your relationship will develop. And knowing how you should be presenting yourself requires some awareness of both the way your body is behaving and the way you talk.
“Loud talk can be offputting and intimidating. But there is seldom much more attractive to a man, for instance, than a soft-talking woman who is making eye contact and keeping those body language barriers down.”
