Observation Puzzle: Guess If This Date Has A Future

Date July 5, 2019 15:28

“To be continued...” This phrase has intrigued movie lovers for decades. And the same words can be used in relation to a situation when two people meet on socials network and in real life. But sometimes, there is no continuation – for there to be a next date, one has to try really hard. Usually, your charmed vis-à-vis unwittingly can give away his true intentions and attitude. Just pay attention to the way he speaks, as well as his manners, eyes, and gestures.

By now, you have probably activated your “psychologist” mode. And you are quite right – this puzzle has to do with body language.

Here is a couple – a young man and woman who are having their first date in a cafe. Can you accurately determine the outcome of this rendezvous? If this date has a future, then why, and if this date will be the last, then whose fault is it?

Observation Puzzle: Guess If This Date Has A Future

There are more than enough signs in this picture to indicate the most likely outcome. Let's start with the girl: she is tense, doesn’t look her date in the eye, and sits with her legs crossed. The man’s legs are widely spread, which means he is too self-confident, but his crossed arms suggest that he does not intend to open up and expects an easy victory, which immediately pushes the girl away.

Most likely, after staying for an amount of time dictated by manners and sufficient so as not to hurt the hapless admirer, the girl will get up and leave – so much for their love story. Her closed position and lack of interest in the guy speak for themselves. If she was facing him, looking into his eyes, and if her arms were open toward him, we could speak of the presence of some feelings. But in this case, no pickup tricks will turn the situation around – the mission has failed and the defeated love hero will have to search for another romantic partner.
