How men and women approach each other

(HealthDayNews) -- It seems there's a great gender difference in the posture, proximity and position of two people approaching each other.

Women prefer the direct approach. Friendly men, on the other hand, prefer to approach another person from the side to demonstrate they're not being hostile, says author David Bodanis in his book, The Secret Family.

And two males "will never stand in direct proximity if they can avoid it. Instead they take up a strangely distanced now-don't-take-offense posture, with their chests not facing each other's directly," writes Bodanis.

Women want to "be cleanly approached from the front so they can see the other person," and a man who makes a sideways approach "is likely to be viewed with suspicion," he says.
