You are interested in someone and feel flushed and weak in the knees when they are around. You can’t stop smiling or looking around to find them. Deep in your heart, you are keen to know if they are interested in you.
You may be casually dating, hanging out, or flirting. Still, you want to know for sure if they are attracted to you like you are attracted to them. To be sure enough, it is best to observe and look for signs. We make your job easier with this post as we share the ways to tell if someone feels attracted to you like the way you are attracted to them.
When You Feel Attracted To Someone, Do They Feel It Too?
Here are some signs to know they are attracted to you the same way you are.
Do they keep asking questions to you or your friends about you? They seem to want to know more about you and pay attention to the smallest details about you. You may find them asking random questions about your life. Most of all, they want to know if you are seeing someone else. This curiosity could be a vital sign of their interest in you.
They reply to your messages, emails, and calls without taking much time. If you guys often communicate, see if they reciprocate your actions and energy. Also, observe if they are as interested in talking or meeting you as you are. To know about it, plan a date and see if they are excited.
3. Body language
You don’t need to be an expert to understand the basic body language of someone. Simple acts such as being nervous around you, stumbling on words, or fidgeting are signs of anxiousness. These signs could mean they are cautious about making a good impression. Uncrossed arms, open shoulders, holding a gaze, fixing the hair or shirt, and licking one’s lips are all signs that they accept your presence and want to impress you. Blushing is a good indication that they are feeling butterflies in their tummy. Also, it is natural for someone to be awkward around someone they like. So talking very fast or being clumsy might also indicate the same.
As simple as it may sound, if the person you like has a spontaneous smile around you or can’t stop smiling when talking to you, they are most likely interested in you. A smile is a sign of happiness, comfort, and attraction. It sends out positive vibes between you two.
5. Mirroring behavior
A person interested in you will unconsciously mimic some of your behavior and actions, such as holding the glass, ordering the same coffee, or even moving their hands like you do. Often, they start using the phrases you usually use. These are signs that the person is aligning with you to create a bond. They are trying to get your attention. It could also mean they find your behavior cute and wish to incorporate them to feel closer to you.
If your love-interest tries to make frequent conversations with you over the smallest of things, they could be interested in you. Texting you throughout the day, asking you about your work, seeking your advice on something, and pulling a conversation longer are signs that they are attracted to you. Also, a comfortable silence when you are together indicates romantic chemistry. All these show they want to spend more time with you.
7. Physical touch
A simple touch could raise the adrenalin levels in the body, sparking chemical reactions that attract you to someone. Physical touch, here, refers to something beyond ‘accidental brushes against your skin.’ If they put their hand on your back while crossing the street, protectively maneuvers you through a crowd, or tries to hold your hand, they are interested in you.
8. No barriers
It is a simple gesture that lets you know if the person you like is attracted to you. For example, if you two are out for dinner, they move the salt and pepper cellar on the table or a cushion placed in between. It shows they are trying to get close to you.
It is an essential sign to notice when you both are together. If someone is interested in you, they will be attentive to your words and actions. They will make eye contact while you speak. If they are easily distracted or not paying attention to your presence or comments, they may not be interested in you as you are.
If the person of your interest takes the lead to make plans, arranges surprises for you, takes care of small details, picks you up and drops you home, invites you for a show or dinner date, they are interested in you. The person who is attracted to you will not wait for you to ask every time. They will be just as excited to make plans with you as you are.
11. Dilated pupils/ blinking
The eyes say it all! It may sound technical but look into their eyes when you talk and see if their pupils dilate. Big, attentive eyes indicate that they are taking in as much of you as possible. Also, someone interested in you will try to hold your gaze and blink less.
12. Glowing skin
When you are around someone you like romantically, your heart beats faster. It makes the skin look flushed and glowing. Love interests activate happy hormones, which show up through a bright radiance in the skin. If they like you, they would be gleaming around you.
13. Vocal tone
You will notice that someone interested in you will try to sound sexy and personal. They would talk in deeper and slower tones and make you feel like their words are just for you. You may even notice their excitement as they talk.
14. Leaning in
The person you like often leans in to get closer to you or whisper something in your ears. They make excuses to be closer to you by moving the body forward to strengthening the conversation. It is because they are interested in you!
The final scorer is your love interest wants to introduce you to family or friends. It’s a way to get approval and include you in their close circle. But mind you, this introduction is only during intimate family get-togethers or in a small group. Don’t mistake a house party for 50 people at their house as a sign of interest!
There is no definite way to know whether someone is interested in you or not. Physical and behavioral signs can help you figure out their interest level, but it is best not to make assumptions and read too much into things. If you have been communicating, dating, and flirting for a while, pick a suitable time to ask the person, directly or indirectly, about where they think the relationship is going. It will keep you safe from heartbreak. But till then, enjoy the flirting, have fun with the butterflies in your stomach and find happiness in the little moments.
