if you're in the mood which suits the body language, the position will feel comfortable. And if you keep your arms crossed, you'll start feeling defensive, negative, and you'll be more negative. hope it helps :) if anyone disagrees, please feel free to write to me :)

to which he apologizes again and I walk away before you can finish.
