Former FBI Agent Analyzes First Date Body Language | WIRED

Former FBI agent and body language expert Joe Navarro breaks down the intentional (and unintentional) non-verbals displayed during dating. What kind of signs do we show during dates that we don't even realize? Can we display our affection for someone without even explaining it verbally?

Check out Joe's book "The Dictionary of Body Language"

  • Pupil dilation can be caused by fear, anger, something we like or don't, arousal, drugs, as well as lighting conditions, not to forget vision problems and other eye conditions, but none of that was mentioned. The eyes dialate on whatever we are focused on typical to get a better look. Me very annoyed with pupils dialated.
