DR. MICHELLE COHEN: If you're trying to make a really good impression on someone, the last thing you want to do is appear bored. And usually picking up boredom body cues is a no-brainer, but I thought it would be important to review some of these things so you can know what not to do if you're trying to appear interested or if you're just plain sleepy and you don't want someone to know that you are. A bored person looks anywhere but at the person who's talking to them. They find other things to do from doodling, staring around the room. They may also keep looking at their watch or a wall clock, and bored people often repeat actions like tapping their toes or drumming their fingers on something. The repetition may escalate as they try to signal their boredom. Now, sometimes we don't to appear bored with someone but we just do. It's kind of a natural subconscious thing. A person who feels that they're unable to act to relieve their boredom may show signs of tiredness as well. They may yawn. Their whole body may sag. They may slouch down in their seat or they may stand and lean against the wall. Their face may also show a distinct lack on interest and they may have a blank look on their face.
