Our body language speaks more than your words, and when we meet someone first time, we can’t tell them all at one time, even if we like them, we can’t tell them directly.
So there are some tricks to show them through your body language that you are interested in them.
1.Greet with the Smile
When you meet them, the first thing you have to do is, give a wide smile. Look happy and positive so that the other person could also get good vibes from you.
Even while talking , smile in between, this will make them comfortable. But don’t just keep showing your teeth awkwardly all the time.
A genuine smile will go, and the person will also have positive vibes from you.
2.Use your hands while talking
Always use your hand gestures; it shows that you are really into that conversation.
You must have noticed whenever you are talking about something you like, or you are excited; you always tend to use your hands more.
When you speak with arms crossed, you look reluctant to the conversation. It is a sign of disinterest, and it shows you don’t want to have this conversation anymore.
Eye contact is essential while having a conversation. When you have a prolonged eye contact, it shows that you are listening to them, not just hearing.
Eye contact ensures that you are actually glued to the things the other person is talking about.
You are sitting and looking here and there then it’ll look like, that you are nervous or restless.
4.Turn your body towards that person
When talking to a person, always position your body or feet towards that person. Align your head in the same direction with theirs.
This ensures your interest in what the person is saying, and he/she will initiate to the conservation longer.
Please stop fidgeting! If you have this habit of continuously taping your feet, scratching your head or nose, then immediately stop this.
These are the signs of nervousness, you look restless as if you want to go from here. It doesn’t look nice to another person.
Tip: Cross your ankles while sitting, it will prevent that taping feet and calm you down.
6.A warm Handshake
When you meet someone for the first time, be it an interview or an informal meeting, start with a gripped, friendly handshake.
It is a sign of confidence, plus the other person will also make a good impression of yours.
7.Nodding your head
Nodding your head slightly shows that you are engaged in the conversation and understanding what the other person is trying to say.
If you sit up straight without moving, it looks a bit unnatural and gives an impression that you are forcing it. Stay calm and just go along the conversation.
8.Stop over blinking
Usually, you blink your eyes about seven to eight times in a minute.
But when you are nervous or scared, you start blinking them faster; it shows that your self-confidence is low and you don’t want to give a first impression of you like this.
Try to calm yourself down, take a long breathe and don’t freak out.
