  • Single Central is an excellent site with information (mainly for girls) about body language. The mate selection process is something that operates at an instinctual, unconscious level.

    Fortunately, you can relearn those things that you unlearned somewhere along the way, and you can consciously change your body language to subtly invite attention. Body language operates out of the right hemisphere where all the more basic instincts are located.
  • Romance class A lot of books and webpages make out body language to be this mysterious, unknowable secret code that you can only master after you study a lot (and maybe shell out cash for the book). It's quite the opposite! Body language is something we all learn, from the time we're babies, and you probably pick up on most of it subconsciously. It's pretty easy to consciuosly recognize the signals we all give out.
