Interpreting Body Language Attraction Signals and Gestures of the Opposite Sex

Did you know that the body language of both males and females will change dramatically when in the presence of the opposite sex. For instance, a man will automatically straighten up his body, stand a little taller, and avoiding all those common slumping or slouching postures.
