10 body language signs of attraction

Holding eye contact is one of the first signs that there is an attraction between two people.


Judging whether a guy really likes you or not, can be tricky. Is he just being polite, but secretly wishing it was time to go home?  Or is he just a bit shy and afraid to say anything in case he gets rejected? If you want to find out if a guy is into you or not, or if you want to know how to send messages that you like a man, read these ten body language signs of attraction that show when one person is charmed by another.

1. The feet are a dead giveaway

Believe it or not, you can tell if there is an attraction between people by looking at their feet. If you point your feet toward a person, then that shows that you are interested in them and you don’t feel threatened by them. If a person’s feet are turned away from you, then that is a sign that they are preparing to leave.

2. Smooth body movements are a good sign


The speed that a person moves will also give you an idea of whether or not they like you. If a person’s movements are quick and jerky, that shows that they are uncomfortable, or feeling nervous. If, on the other hand, a person’s movements are slow and relaxed, that shows that they like the person they are with.

3. Leaning towards a person

One of the strongest body language signs of attraction is when a person leans in closer, when they are talking to you. If you want to use this body language sign to show someone that you are attracted to them, lean in enough to make it noticeable, but not so much as to invade their personal space. The act of leaning in closer is a sign that a kiss is not completely out of the question.

4. A slight touch says it all

If someone touches you on the shoulder or brushes you on the hand, then that is another one of definite body language signs of attraction. The touch will seem completely innocent, but it could well be an attempt to gauge your reaction and see whether any more physical contact might be on the cards.


5. Eye contact is a good sign

Holding eye contact is one of the first signs that there is an attraction between two people. If someone is attracted to you, you will probably notice that they keep eye contact for longer than you would normally expect and, the best way to let that person know that you are attracted to them is to return and hold that eye contact. Don’t turn it into a stare, though; hold their gaze just long enough for them to notice.

6. Turn your whole body towards a person to show them that you like them

When you want to let someone know you are attracted to them, you should turn your whole body towards them. If you have your body turned even slightly away from them, you are giving them the message that you are ready to leave. Facing someone, full on, tells them that you trust them and you want to be with them.

7. Listen to the tone of his voice


Both men’s and women’s voices change slightly when they are attracted to a member of the opposite sex. A man’s voice will deepen and take on an almost song like quality, while a woman’s voice will rise slightly in pitch and become softer. It’s a subconscious way of the man showing his masculinity and a woman making more of her femininity.

8. Face touching

When people are attracted to another person they tend to touch their face with their hands. If a person strokes their cheek, or smooths their hair while they are talking to you, it can be a sign that they are slightly embarrassed by their attraction to you, or it could be that they are trying to get your attention.

9. Gesture mimicking

If someone starts to copy the gestures of another person then that is another one of clear body language signs of attraction. Ixf one person were to cross their legs, then the other will follow suite, or if one leans in closer, so will the other. You will also find that when people are attracted to one another, they will try to match each other’s pace when they are walking together.


10. The smile

One of the biggest signs of attraction is a shared smile. It has to be a genuine smile and it has to be held for just the right amount of time. A quick smile can seem insincere, while a smile that lasts too long can just look scary! The shared, secret smile, though, really does say it all.
