A DATING expert revealed the subtle signs you need to look out for at a party when you want to work out if your date is going to make a move.
If you're hoping for a cheeky midnight snog on New Year's Eve, there are a few things you should watch out for around the person you've got your eye on.
A party is the perfect place to work out if you're vibing, but if you're not great at picking up on signals, don't worry, dating coach Persia Lawson has the low down on the subtle ways he'll show you he's interested.
Speaking to Fabulous, she said: "The first thing is the most obvious, but it's also a biggie. Watch out for eye contact.
"If someone likes you they will keep looking over at you and try to catch your eye. When you notice smiles in your direction and lingering looks, that's a big positive sign."
An extension of the glances across the room is when he's making eye contact with you while speaking to a friend.
Persia said: "Whispering to their mates while looking in your direction is another classic sign. When they're really not being subtle they could be doing it hoping you'll spot them and catch them in the act."
Another thing to look out for is when people make sure they are hanging around you, the love coach calls this "staying in your orbit".
