Its better you try to avoid some bad non verbal communication on your first date. On your first date, if you fold your arms across the chest it can appear as a defensive pose, or it may be seen as if you are not interested in the conversation. If you get up with the hands in your pockets, it may sometimes seem as a poor confidence. Sitting with shaking leg crossed would express some discomfort or nervousness.
