5 Body Language Signs Of Attraction Backed By Science

Our feet are the channels we use to move around and physically, decide the way we are going to take in any given context. Watching out for how your feet are pointed when you’re getting to know someone can tell you tons about how you’re feeling. If your feet are clearly pointing in the direction of the person, there’s a high likelihood you feel at ease with them and have a genuine interest in them.

Similarly, if your feet have a natural tendency of moving away, check for the feelings you might be carrying.

An “exit” orientation is often a tell-tale sign you’re engaging the person out of duty or specific context rather than authentic interest. The feet of the other person, likewise, could also tell you where they might be placed in terms of the connection.

 

4. Trying to look one’s best

Courtship unconsciously entails looking your best.

Though realistically, this isn’t possible around the clock, the initial hours and days of doing your best to draw a person in often revolves around something really simple.

As innocuous as this sounds, whether it is a man or woman moving towards you and readying themselves to set up conversation, if you see them take the extra last minute care to adjust their clothes, you can be assured they want to make an impression, if not anything else.

5. Face-watching

Now we all know that different people get into conversations and maintain them differently. For example, people with a more visual memory tend to look into space, recall something and then speak.

However, in mate finding behaviour, the unconscious pull often decides how a person responds with eye contact and general gaze.

Making more eye contact is certainly an indication someone is experience a keen interest to get to know you.

So is face-watching and not giving into distractions that may be unfolding around (for example, if you’re seated in a busy pub or restaurant).

Eye contact combined with taking in the features and paying attention to them, is indication enough the person is drawn towards you. You can use the same metric to judge your own behaviour when you’re meeting someone new.

In her PhD thesis, a University of Oslo student Olga Chelnokova attempted to look at how the human brain is able to put focus on to the most important information revealed by a face. According to her research, a “reward system” is at play when there is attraction. This is tied to the same parts of the brain that find pleasure in good food or succeeding at a game or lottery.

 

While there are multiple common behavioural patterns in men and women to show they are interested in you, some are unique based on gender and context. It helps to know of evolutionary instincts and how they serve and fail us.

This can also be the starting point of you exploring the signals you exhibit and while doing so, trust how you feel in your gut. It is quicker to register non-verbals than the thinking brain.
