You begin to date someone. Your legs may brush up against each others' on your first date. You may hold hands walking from bar to bar on the second or third date. You give them a hug and quick peck kiss goodbye after the fourth date or so. How does your body language change when you're in a new relationship? Well, that depends on what you're comfortable with, first and foremost, but according to experts, it can change a lot from your single days. As you get to know someone more, your body will instinctually communicate differently than it does when you're single.
Body language experts Traci Brown and Blanca Cobb weighed in on the subject to discuss ways your body language changes when going from just dating to a more serious relationship. They both say that your body language changes when you're with your partner, as well as when you're physically apart from them.
Cobb highlights that it's important to take notice of what a couple's baseline would be.
