I don’t need to tell you the look; you know what I’m talking about. Your eyes will tell them everything they should know… maybe a little bit more.
#6 Give a little sexual touch. But do this only if you BOTH are comfortable touching each other. If this is your first date, don’t touch them at all. If you are vibing and already touching each other, tease them with a gentle smack on their butt or run your hands through their hair. It’ll send shivers up their spine.
