Trying to figure out whether or not someone is attracted to you is difficult, especially if you’re unsure of your own feelings. I mean sure, you two like to hang out with each other because you enjoy the company, but does that mean you’re actually attracted to each other, or just that you simply like them as a person or a companion? In such a situation, wouldn’t it be better to know beforehand signs of mutual attraction so that you know where you stand?
Signs of Mutual Attraction Between A Man and A Woman
Their Method of Interacting
A lot can be surmised from the manner in which one behaves in front of you. If they’re darting their eyes here and there regularly, checking their phone, rummaging through their purse or wallet, or have a bored expression on their face, then there’s no attraction. If, however, they’re paying close attention to what you’re saying, giving appropriate responses, maintaining eye contact and being in an overall god mood, you’re good to go!
Check Their Cheeks
Blushing is something that no human being can control. People often blush when they are attracted to someone, and if they have a lot of color in their cheeks (which isn’t makeup) then they like you.
Check Their Eyes
Much like blushing, the dilation of eyes is not in our control. When we’re in the presence of objects or people we like/want/desire, our eyes automatically dilate. However, they also dilate when we’re in a dimly lit space, so don’t mistake their eyes adjusting for light, as a sign of attraction.
Check Their Feet
When we like someone, our body gives off unmistakable hints, like the position of our feet. If our feet are facing towards the person in question, that means we like them, and vice versa.
One of the most crucial and often underrated signs of mutual attraction between a man and a woman is definitely eye contact. If you guys exchange glances often or you find that they’ve been looking at you (while you were looking away), that’s a positive sign of attraction. Their eyes might briefly break contact to check your body (which is another good sign) or your surroundings (which is natural).
A High Pitched Voice
When women find someone they like, their voices automatically become high pitched. It’s actually basic evolutionary tactics, which can be found among the lowest of species in the animal kingdom. The female makes her voice high pitched so that it can carry over a greater distance, in the hopes of attracting a mate that finds her voice attractive.
A Husky Voice
For men, it’s the exact opposite. Their voices will become lower in pitch, making them appear manlier. This is their way of signaling to a potential female mate that he is the strongest male in the vicinity who will be able to ‘protect’ her from danger. Again, it’s biology and most people have no control of the pitches of their voices.
This is an easy one when the topic’s about signs of mutual attraction between a man and a woman. If they’re always sitting close to you (and sometimes a little too close to you), then they’re definitely into you and are hinting not too subtly to you that you should make a move as well.
Whether accidental or deliberate – you will notice that they touch you a lot on your non-sexual areas, like shoulders, head, wrists, knees, elbows, etc. People often touch others only when they are comfortable with them, which would indicate that yes, a certain level of trust and comfort exists between you two.
A Good Memory
Have you noticed how they always manage to remember the smallest of details that you mention to them? Stuff that even you don’t remember mentioning to them? That’s because they genuinely pay attention to what you’re saying. And usually, people reserve such attention for people they’re interested in romantically.
When you like someone, you want to know more about them. And what better way to get to know a person than straight from the horse’s mouth? So if there has lately been an increase in the questions they’ve started asking about you, relax. They’re just doing their best to get to know you more because they already are so into you! Keep an eye out for such signs of mutual attraction between a man and a woman!
This stands truer for men than for women (who pay more attention to their appearances). Have you noticed if he’s recently begun straightening up his act, has started dressing more maturely, applies perfume, has his hair cut and face shaved? That’s because he’s trying to show you that he’s a big boy who can take care of himself, so that you can seriously consider him as a potential partner.
He Stands Straight
This one applies more to men than to women. If his back is always upright when he’s next to you, that’s because subconsciously he’s trying to appear taller. A tall mate has always been a preference for females because the taller they are, the stronger they are. And stronger males always protect their family. Puffing his chest out is another evolutionary tactic that males display.
If they’re fidgeting, stuttering, sweating or sometimes even avoiding eye contact, it’s because they are nervous. Why? Because they like you and they don’t want to do anything that would mess up their opinion in your eyes. Or because they feel too shy or awkward around you due to their feelings.
