However make sure that you are not faking it or coming precariously close to a leer.
Be natural and sincere and your date is sure to be charmed by your smile.
Their study, published in PNAS, is based on two large field experiments, involving modern dating practices, such as speed dating or partner selection through a dating app.
In both cases, the scientists note that the choice of the person, and the success of the encounter were often decided in a very short amount of time.
In a first experiment, the scientists looked at 144 speed dates which were recorded on video.
At the end of each four-minute date, each person decided if they wanted to see the other again.
This suggests that the attraction between two people is driven by very simple, physical mechanisms.
If you want to make a good impression worry less about what you are wearing and instead concentrate on using your posture to look welcoming and open – raise your head and put your shoulders back; make sure your arms and legs are uncrossed and smile as your date approaches you.During that time, the scientists recorded behaviors related to attraction, love and dominance.Seating in an dominant and open manner, including a stretched torso and widespread limbs, best predicted the chance of the person getting a positive outcome at the end of the date.Smile Approach your speed dating partner with a frank and open smile and you are sure to hit off with the right note.Nothing improves a person’s appearance as a real smile and the positive feeling it generates can go miles in creating a good impression on the girl before you.
