There are five stages of non-verbal communication that occur during any and all courtships. Regardless of a person’s culture, community, or demography, they will always follow these stages during their courting. Consider the five stages and the activities associated with each.
Attracting attention is the initial stage of courtship. You want to communicate to others that you are single and seeking. This is accomplished by your posture, motions, facial expressions, attire, and other non-verbal modes of communication. You are attracting attention in an extremely subtle manner.
The second level is to develop an ability to read body language. After gaining attention, you should begin seeking for good indicators from others in your immediate vicinity. You’re interested in determining who is reacting to your indicators for attention. Who is aware of your non-verbal indications and responsive enough to them? These are all characteristics that you will notice in the body language of those in your immediate vicinity. This might reveal a great deal about the person with whom to proceed to the next stage of courting.
Verbal communication is introduced in the third stage. Once you’ve determined who is interested, you may begin communicating with them. Nonetheless, this stage is heavily reliant on non-verbal communication. Numerous things might be implied simply by saying “Hello” to someone. Everything is communicated through body language and tone of speech.
You can get a decent sense of how things are moving by observing what is not stated. Keep an eye out for non-verbal cues that people give off. If you notice indicators that indicate the individual is really interested, approaching them and saying Hello becomes much easier. Additionally, it is significantly less frightening and awkward this way.
Physical contact is a part of the fourth stage of courting. This stage might be quite subtle and appear perfectly benign at first. There could have been an unintentional brush against someone or an unintentional touch. The reaction received will dictate the course of this step. If the individual is not interested in continuing the conversation, their non-verbal communication will make this quite evident. They will make it quite evident that they are unconcerned about what is occurring. This stage might last for an extended period of time. It is unique to each pair and their particular circumstances.
The final step of courtship is infusing the relationship with closeness and sex. As with the previous four levels, non-verbal indicators should lead you through this step. Cuddling, staring, stroking, kissing, and holding hands are all methods to express and convey affection during this time.
If your partner does not exhibit these indicators, then you are not both ready to enter this level. When two people are intimate, their body language is quite evident. Their voice and tone, on the other hand, will change. After all, our tone of voice and the way we speak may convey a great deal about our interest in and desire for our partner, as well as the closeness that will ensue.
