Secret signals

As you reach for your glass on the bar, the guy next to you reaches for his and his hand touches yours.

As you reach for your glass on the bar, the guy next to you reaches for his and his hand touches yours. It’s the lightest of touches, but why does it feel so sexy and full of potential?

A casual touch is one of the subtle cues we send to say: “I think you’re hot, I’d like to get a little closer.” According to research, touching someone, even in a subtle way, also builds attraction between you.

Eye contact is an equally powerful tool. Really connecting with someone’s eyes can create a connection faster than any number of lame pick-up lines. The art of the flirting glance has been around forever. Catch someone’s eye, keep the look for a second or two – look away, then glance up again.

Another subtle way we indicate our attraction is by mirroring the other person’s body language. She leans forward, so does he, she touches her face, he touches his. Even across a crowded room, this subtle clue can draw you together like magnets.
