In today's dating scene, people tend to make quick judgments.
Body language suggesting openness or expansiveness can affect success, according to a study newly out of UC Berkeley.
(Jonathan Brady / Associated Press) When it comes to impressing potential dates, a little change in posture might make the difference between a swipe right and a swipe left.
Generally the women will be seated at a table for two and the men are given one table to start at and have a predetermined amount of time to get to know the woman at this table and determine whether or not they are compatible.
After the time limit the woman stay where they are seated and the men move to the next table.
At the conclusion of each date, you check off whether or not you are interested in meeting with this person further and at the conclusion of the night, if your date was also interested in meeting you, the event organizers provide you with the contact information for your matches.
Their study, published in PNAS, is based on two large field experiments, involving modern dating practices, such as speed dating or partner selection through a dating app.
In both cases, the scientists note that the choice of the person, and the success of the encounter were often decided in a very short amount of time.
In a first experiment, the scientists looked at 144 speed dates which were recorded on video.
At the end of each four-minute date, each person decided if they wanted to see the other again.
