He tickles you (to feel out how you feel about intimate touching).Anything less touchy than these, prepare for a hug. In The Body Language of Nationally renowned body language expert Tonya Reiman turns her attention to romance—explaining how to read the signals of your date, your mate, or that cutie across the bar—and never get rejected again!
