Consequently, Alex had few male friends for obvious reasons - no man likes a potential rival for the attentions of his woman.This chapter is devoted to the female signals Alex could see and to the body language he used in return.For a man, success in the mating game relies mainly on his ability to read the signals being sent to him, as opposed to being able to initiate his own moves.
Human flirtation involves sequences of gestures and expressions not unlike the courtship dances of birds and other animals, as seen on wildlife programs.
The bottom line is that when a person wants to attract the opposite sex they do so by emphasizing sexual differences.
While the 'metro-sexual' male strikes many straight men as odd, 'metro-sexuals' would seem to fall into a couple of categories: gay or effeminate men, and men who realize that assuming traditional female behaviors is a great way to meet lots of women.
Alex was a man who developed a skill that most men would kill to have.
Albert Scheflen, author of Body Language and the Social Order, found that, when a person enters the company of the opposite sex, certain physiological changes take place.
He found that high muscle tone became evident in preparation for a possible sexual encounter, 'bagging' around the face and eyes decreased, body sagging disappeared, the chest protruded, the stomach was automatically pulled in, pot-bellied slumping disappeared, the body assumed an erect posture and the person appeared to become more youthful in appearance.A woman who is interested will respond by emphasizing her breasts, tilting her head, touching her hair, exposing her wrists and thereby making herself appear submissive.The ideal place to observe these changes is on a beach when a man and a woman approach each other from a distance.He seemed to have a built-in radar for finding the available women at the right time and getting them to go with him. Research by animal courtship behavior zoologists and behavioral scientists reveals that male and female animals use a series of intricate courtship gestures, some obvious and others subtle, and that most of this is done subconsciously.In the animal world, courtship behavior in each species follows specific and pre-determined patterns.This was their reaction to the constant attention he'd give them and the courtship signals he used.
