First date advice: Body language dos and don’ts
1. DON’T hunch your shoulders
Nerves and stress make us tense up, especially in the neck area. In fact, check your body right now, as it’s quite likely (especially if you’re at work) that you’re unconsciously tensing your shoulders.
Unfortunately, on a date, when those nerves will be quite prevalent, your shoulders will probably be up around your ears.
With your shoulders hunched up, you look like you’re about to spring up, and that reminder of nervousness will spread to your date so that he too begins to feel nervous.
But, keep your shoulders in mind, and you’ll come across cool as a cucumber.
