Read Your Date's Body Language - Clue #2

Body-language clue #2: The Mimic
Another sign of interest involves the hands and then some—it’s something called “matching and mirroring.” What’s that? It’s when your date mimics your gestures, voice inflections and patterns of communication. And it’s a good thing. “Their voice will speed up if yours does, or slow down with yours,” says Wood. “It happens subconsciously—when we’re attracted, we tend to merge into one another in this way.” If you’re noticing that this happens on the first date — your date is shrugging the way you do when sharing a story, or places his complicated dinner order in the same joking way you do — well, chances are there will be a second date.
