4 Tricks To Exude Confidence and Attract More Dates [EXPERT]
Discover what your body language says about you.

2. Back straight, stomach in and chest out. The military gets it right when it comes to appearing confident and authoritative. Most people don’t even know the image they are projecting when they are standing around or even just walking on the street.

For example, slumpers tend to look lazy, insecure and scared of the world around them. People who walk at a slow pace are typically more laid back but very detail oriented while speed walkers tend to be more impatient and distracted.

Then you have the stompers. People who stomp tend to be attention seekers. They are often demanding and can be slightly unapologetic when it comes to the feelings of people who surround them. People who walk very softly tend to be overly considerate and go through great lengths to avoid conflict.

I could go on and on, but I’m pretty sure you get where I am going with this. Make it a point to stand up straight and walk tall. The key is to find that balance and understand how your body moves so you can control the messages you are sending out.

Just a warning though, don't overdo it. You want to appear calm, cool and collected. Too much control will make you look like a robot. Nobody likes a stick in the mud.

3. Avoid making fast talk. Don't be a motor mouth. Talking too fast is not only confusing to the person on the receiving end, but it also shows that you may not be putting a lot of thought into what you are saying.
