How Do I Know If Someone Is Attracted to Me

"How do I know if someone is attracted to me?" It's a common question asked by teens and adults, and nobody seems to have a definitive answer. Attraction is a tricky thing. We can meet the perfect person for us and not have any attraction toward them. It is equally easy to fall in love with someone who couldn't be more wrong for us. Maybe pheromones attract members of the opposite sex, or it is simply lust.

Becoming attracted to the right person is hard enough, but what about determining if someone has an interest in us? Luckily, if you know what to look for, you can get a fairly accurate idea of how someone feels about you and the potential you hold as a mate. Below are a few tips for evaluating your encounter with the opposite sex.

Interpreting Body Language
Our body language is something that happens almost involuntarily. You may not realize how you are sitting, leaning or holding your head while you talk to someone, but all these movements and positions are meaningful in unlocking the secrets to attraction. Someone who is interested in you will stand closer than the average person, lean his body toward you while talking (whether sitting or standing) or look relaxed and unguarded in his posture. If you are talking to someone and he almost looks annoyed or uncomfortable, chances are he is not attracted to you.

Increased Communication
If you are wondering whether an acquaintance or long-time friend is becoming attracted to you, try taking a look at his communication patterns. Suddenly contacting you more often is a good sign, as is any increased electronic or phone communication. If you notice the other person goes out of his way to say hi to you or bump into you in public, he is probably trying to get your attention.

Invitations To Tag Along
As you find someone attractive and begin to enjoy his company, you will naturally want to spend more time with him. Therefore, if you have a friend, co-worker or classmate who suddenly wants to spend more time with you, consider it a good sign. While this person may just be a really good friend, if you combine these extra invitations to tag along with him with the other signs listed above, you are most likely dealing with someone attracted to you.
