So we've probably all heard this before but how you carry yourself can make a major impact on how the world sees you. We get it. But for some reason, we don't take that into consideration when it comes to our love and sex life. As crazy as it may sound, your body language can totally make the difference in just how well you get along with your partner (if you catch our drift). Seriously.


According to YourTango's Senior VP Melanie Gorman, author Dr. Sue Johnson, Marriage/Couples Counselor Gal Szekely, LMFT Dr. Rita DeMaria, and LCSW Marni Feuerman, all it takes is spotting the biggest mistakes you've made and knowing how to tweak them in your favor. For starters, if you've ever wondered why your partner seemed upset with you even though you both seemed to be having a great time, you may want to look into exactly which vibes you gave off. Hearing our experts dish on the different types of mistakes that people have unintentionally made definitely got us thinking about our own past dating experiences.


1. Were your arms crossed throughout your whole date?

2. Do you remember smiling or laughing during any portion of your night out?

3. Was there any eye contact involved?

If you any of the following moves sound familiar, you may have an issue at hand. While verbal communication is imperative for any healthy relationship, physical body language is just as important. That's what makes our experts' advice on body language and how to get it right so spot on. At the end of the day, it's not what you say but HOW you say it!
