One woman hoping to change that is body language expert Steph Holloway, 55, who is based in New Zealand.
What I'm hearing is a lot of people are disillusioned and a lot of people are using it for hook ups.' Ms Holloway has been studying body language and believes that it is one of the most important tools of communication.'The main sign with attraction is to show that you're available and interested.
If your date isn't making eye contact with you, or if he won't meet your gaze when you look at him or he’s constantly looking around the room, it could be that he's just not that interested in you -- or, he could be shy.Positive signs are if your date maintains good eye contact, and occasionally drops his gaze to look at your mouth before he looks back into your eyes.Remember, however, to relax and enjoy the experience, and don't focus too much on analyzing your date's body language.As the saying goes, "The eyes are the window to the soul" and, yes -- eye contact is often the best way to tell whether someone is attracted to you.Everybody has different quirks and habits, of course, but some common body language signals are universal.
You can understand a lot from watching how a person uses his body – and he doesn’t even have to say a single word.If you want to be successful with women, body language is everything.It’s more important than your words, more important than your routines, and even more important than your physical appearance.'The dating rules have changed in the last few years, if you're of a certain age you just don't know what the rules are anymore,' she told FEMAIL.In Ms Holloway's ideal world she would scrap online dating tools altogether, as she prefers face to face communication.'Everything's fast and furious online, it's a chaotic waste land.'If someone approaches you say something to move the conversation forward.' If you're now at the point where you're both engaging in conversation Ms Holloway recommends that you look down at the other persons feet when they're talking to you to gauge their interest.'In body language the feet never lie.
