You can usually spot a couple in love by their instinctive and subliminal compulsion to mirror each other so acutely that they almost begin to look alike. Bodies become fully synchronised, with every small glance, touch or signal receiving its empathetic reply. Only someone may have forgotten to pass this snippet on to KIM KARDASHIAN’s tasty new husband KRIS HUMPHRIES. His response to what looks very much like a mating call appears to be skidding rather wide of the mark here.
When a girl wraps herself up in rope like a delivery from Argos and puts her cleavage on show, she’s clearly seeking some appreciation from her new spouse. Add an upturned head and a gentle parting of the lips and surely anyone can read her body language signals as ‘give us a kiss (the cameras are watching)’.
Kris is either too tall to see (at 6ft 9in the basketball star towers over 5ft 2in Kim) or isn’t yet attuned to his bride’s signals; instead of locking lips or sending amorous glances her way, Kris is bending down, in what looks like the assumption that Kim wants to have a chat, with his arms hanging limply at his sides rather than pulling his proffered wife in for a hug and kiss.
MIND YOUR LANGUAGEThe simplest way to boost your power and status signals at work is to rest your elbows on the arms of your chair, rather than keeping your arms stitched close to your sides in a self-hug or crossed on your lap as women often do under pressure. This splaying technique relaxes your shoulders and your facial muscles, and creates a symmetrical, confident appearance.
