    Agree with keeping eye contact but not on staring.

    And CzeCze, when a girl stares at a guy, it kind of turns thing on and the guy feels flattered. (It could also apply to girl staring at a girl on a date.)

    But when a guy states at a girl, it looks scary and creepy. Because the natural look of men are manly/aggressive/threatening.

    Whereas a natural look of a female is feminine/not threatening.

Just keep staring. HARD.

    SUCCESS!

    Conscious body language is phoney, for phonies.
    Yeah. I don't agree either. It's part of how we communicate. It's like saying don't develop interpersonal skills and diplomacy because it makes you fake. Some people are naturally gifted with this (reading and expressing) and some are not.

    Wow. That look would make me run.


    But I have felt very flattered by a guy holding eye contact with me, and I have also enjoyed catching them staring at me. (Except for the creepy ones, there are some of those)

    A really interesting one I read somewhere is that a slightly delayed smile seems more genuine. About authenticity, I think there is some middle ground where you are conscious and honestly expressing yourself through your body.

    It's also fun to play it up and exaggerate.

    i understand that and could even imagine telling someone how they are being perceived if i believed it to be different than how they truly feel....maybe even offering suggestions on how to modify it.
    i on the otherhand am probably way more expressive than most people are used to...so they likely misread things because they're comparing it to themselves or other people.

    I think the best thing you can tell from body language is mood and intention. I divided it up into 5 "types," neutral, submissive, dominant-aggressive, calm, and agitated. I made a table.



    Edit: Title should say "5 types." mybad
