Nationally renowned body language expert Tonya Reiman turns her attention to romance — explaining how to read the signals of your date, your mate, or that cutie across the bar — and never get rejected again!
Attraction: It’s biological. It’s physical. It’s chemical. It’s mental. But it doesn’t end there. It’s also: Detectable. Manageable. Maneuverable.
In The Body Language of Dating, Tonya Reiman provides the tools needed for success in today’s dating scenarios, offering practical tactics for seduction, conversation, connection, and enduring romance. She traces human attraction and seduction over millions of years, drawing lines of flirting symmetry that span millennia, cultures, species, and continents. By looking at the evolutionary purpose of every part of the male and the female body, The Body Language of Dating chronicles the modern-day appeal of each major human bodily feature—why it is considered attractive or unattractive, good for longevity or detrimental to the gene pool, indicative of sexual success or failure.
Reiman crumples the timeline that separates us from our ancient ancestors to ask, “What has never changed? What attracts opposite sexes to one another, why does it work, and how has it contributed to the longevity of our species?” The Body Language of Dating is a fascinating look at how your Neanderthal ancestors might control whether you go out with that guy across the bar tonight.
The Body Language of Dating is a fascinating look at dating and body language. While I have not been on the dating scene for years, I found the book completely engrossing. Ms. Reiman writes about the body language of dating in a knowledgeable yet accessible way, with a healthy dose of humor. She discusses how evolution has shaped the modern man and woman, how we define attractiveness, what physical characteristics say about one's capacity for commitment, and many other interesting topics.
Tonya Reiman has written a smart and refreshing book - and you don't have to be dating to enjoy it. She is the author of two other previous books, The Power of Body Language: How to Succeed in Every Business and Social Encounter and The Yes Factor: Get What You Want. Say What You Mean. I've added both to my to-read list, and I suggest you do the same with The Body Language of Dating.
The Body Language of Dating: Read His Signals, Send Your Own, and Get the Guy came out last week, new from Gallery Books. You can read an excerpt on the book's Amazon page.
