Turning heads with body language

Would the paparazzi be chasing Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie up the red carpet if they moved like Homer and Marge Simpson? Not likely. Body language that's different to the norm grabs attention. Strong, definite movements, for example, demonstrate confidence, which in turn serves as both a magnet for other people and as an aphrodisiac. (You can read more on confidence in Chapter 5). People who exhibit definite body language and distinctive movements, as well as those who move differently as a result of disability, for example, stand out.

Flick through a magazine and you'll see celebrities all exhibiting the same body language. You'll never see these people slouching or with their heads down - unless they're in disgrace or caught off guard by the paparazzi. Use star body language by doing the following:

Always hold your head up, with an elongated neck, and keep your eyes looking straight ahead: This pose demonstrates an aura of control, authority, and sexuality.

Keep your shoulders back and your chest out: By exposing your chest (a vulnerable part of your body), you're inviting people to come to you. You're pulling people into you as if your chest were a fisherman's line.

Control underwear can improve posture in both men and women. This miracle gear pulls the wearer up and in, creating a firm, fit, and sexually appealing figure, eliminating muffin tops, creating a perter bottom, and even creating a sleeker torso for men when wearing a whole undershirt.

✓ Scan the room slowly and don't dart your gaze away from eye contact: A slow, steady scan of the room indicates that you're confident and controlled enough to stand still and take in your surroundings before choosing which person or group you'll go to.

Let me in!

Carl was at a conference. He was taken with another delegate but wasn't having much luck catching her eye. On the first day he spotted the restaurant but was struggling to open the door until somebody opened it from the other side and he fell headlong into the room, drawing quiet sniggers from the other diners. Rather than head through the middle of the room he decided not to draw attention to himself and crept his way around the walls, until his backside knocked a trolley and its entire contents off balance, sending it crashing to the floor. By now the other diners were in fits of laughter and gave him a round of applause, much to his mortification.

Determined not to repeat this experience, Carl attended a course on body language and by the next conference had perfected his entrance. He paused and composed himself before making a head-turning entrance at every opportunity. 'Haven't we met somewhere before?' asked a woman with a flirtatious smile. She had, but Carl wasn't going to remind her that it was his disastrous restaurant entrance a few months back. He turned more heads that conference and was never short of company, and he caught the interest of the woman he'd fancied at the previous event.

Never miss an opportunity to make a great entrance to draw flirting opportunities to you like a magnet.
