2. Open Up
Finds a study in Evolution and Human Behavior, men who don’t cross their arms are seen as more attractive, active, and persuasive.
Wade says that avoid poses that will tighten or close off your body. Instead, sit or stand with your legs apart and your elbows away from your sides.
3. Dial down Your Smile
According to a study in Emotion, women regard too much smiling as a sign of femininity and timidity—both of which are turn-offs. Wade says that doesn’t mean you should keep a stone face. After all, women are attracted to men who seem fun and approachable. The research suggests, just lose the permanent grin.

7. Play Eye Tag
According to Wade’s research, men who frequently glance around are more likely to make eye contact with women—and women respond better to guys with whom they’ve already exchanged glances. So every few minutes, sweep your eyes across the room, making sure to look briefly at her when you do it.
He says that “You want to catch her eye, but you don’t want it to be too intense,” says Wade. Staring could make you come off as super aggressive—or even deranged.
8. Now Watch For Her Signals
If you’ve played all your cards right, she’ll send you her signals that say she’s interested.
Wade also says that “Look for her to flip her hair or tuck it behind her ears while looking at you,”
“These will a pretty good indicator that she’s, at least, open to learning more about you.”
