A body language expert has revealed that a restaurant is one of the worst places to bring a first date, since it doesn’t allow for expressive movement.
Blake Eastman, founder of New York-based research and teaching organization the Nonverbal Group, explained that because a restaurant is ‘highly adversarial’, it is better to begin a date in a bar before moving on to a restaurant and ending with an activity, like bowling.
‘Movement is a great predictor of first date success,’ he told StyleCaster. ‘Dates are all about having fun and having a good time, so you’ll tend to see that in good dates, people will move around a lot.’
Room to move: Body language expert Blake Easton says a restaurant is one of the worst places to take a date since it doesn’t allow you to move around, and ‘movement is a great predictor of first date success’
A date should be spent in a place that induces movements like gesturing, moving back and forth and animation – all good signs in a first date.
Besides movement, awareness of your own behavior, as well as that of your date, is also key.
Mr Eastman, a former professional poker player, explains that body language is an invaluable part of our work and love life, even if it is often subconscious.
A boss, for example, may unknowingly see you as ‘less valuable’ because you are expressing a lack of confidence, but simply changing your body language can rectify that problem.
Still, different situations call for different types of body language, says Mr Eastman.
In a job interview, for instance, the way you present yourself before the interview is almost more important than during.
To exude poise from the get-go, Mr Eastman recommends maintaining a confident posture and thinking positive thoughts.
‘There’s no room for any kind of negative thoughts before an interview,’ he says. ‘Get rid of them.’
What’s more, while people are often advised to hold unbroken eye contact with an interviewer, Mr Eastman says this can actually distance you.
‘If you maintain eye contact the whole time, it doesn’t build an organic connection, because it’s fake,’ he said.
‘Maintaining perfect eye contact in an interview doesn’t build a connection, because it’s fake’
