You can’t miss these 13 signs of strong physical attraction
So, if you’re the one sending out signals or you see them coming your way, what should you watch out for? Let’s look at 13 signs of strong physical attraction, which can only lead to one thing: taking off clothes.
#1: An overwhelming desire to touch them in any way.
You’ve got it bad if you just want to reach out and touch them, maybe to move that stray hair out of their face or find a reason to brush an invisible piece of fluff off their shirt. One of the major signs of strong physical attraction is wanting to reach out and touch someone. You might have to sit on your hands to stop yourself from doing what you want to do.
#2 A heartbeat that is fast.
When this person is around, does your heart rate go up a few beats? Can you hear and feel the thumping in your chest? Does it make you feel it all over your body? Putting on a special orchestra of drums that only you can hear? This is a clear sign that you want to take things with this person to the next level. There’s a strong pull between them.
#3: Seeing that your palms are wet.
When this person is around, do your palms start to sweat? This is a natural nervous response, but it also has something to do with being attracted to someone. When this person walks into your space and makes your hands feel like they’re covered in sweat, that’s a strong sign of strong physical attraction.
#4: You feel nervous most of the time.
If you believe that you get butterflies in your stomach and feel nervous for no reason, that’s your body telling you that it wants this other person, and not in a good way! You really like the way this other person looks. These nerves are your body’s way of telling you to fight or run away.
#5 Chapped lips.
Do you feel like your mouth and lips are drying out? Do you lick your lips out of habit? If you do this while looking at the other person, lost in the moment and thinking about what might happen, they’ll know exactly what you’re thinking. Again, this is one of the most obvious signs of strong physical attraction, and the other person can’t help but notice it!
#6: You can’t say anything.
Do you start to stutter and blush when you’re around this person? You might be the most sure of yourself person ever. But when this person is around, you make a mess of everything. This can be a sign of real physical attraction because it makes you worry that they can read your mind and know what you’re thinking.
#7: Wanting to look good.
When this person is around, you want to look your best, even if that means showing a little more skin and flesh than you normally would. You want them to see you at your best. You don’t just want to look good to boost your confidence. Because you want this person to want to be with you again.
In the same way, if someone always looks their best when you’re around, it could be a sign that they want something from you. How to make yourself look and feel hot and sexy again
#8: You just can’t take your eyes off of it.
We all know that eye contact is a sign of attraction, but if you can’t stop looking at this person, whether you’re talking to them or just watching them walk, move, or do something, you’re very physically attracted to them.
#9: Wanting to make them laugh.
We’ve all know or at some point heard the old saying that you pull the pigtails of the person you like on the playground. It’s been around for a long time, but it’s true. If you like someone, whether it’s on an emotional or a physical level, you’ll probably tease them. This is a fun and enjoyable way to get to know someone, but it’s also a way to get sexually aroused.

#10: When you talk to them, your voice changes.
Does your voice all of a sudden whisper or sound a little bit erotic? If so, your voice is giving you away, which is one of the best ways to tell if you’re physically attracted to someone. Your voice might get husky and a little breathy, and the other person will know what you’re feeling or thinking without you having to say anything.
#11 You don’t notice anyone else.
Even if there are a lot of other people in the room, you will only pay attention to the person you have a strong physical attraction to. You only want to look at this person and see what they’re doing, and you only want them to notice you.
Even if someone is talking to you, you’ll only be thinking about your crush if you’re looking at them. Your mind will probably be going crazy at the same time!
One of the biggest and most obvious signs of strong physical attraction is when two people move in the same way. We do it without even being aware of it. In this case, you will mirror the movements and standing/sitting position of the person you’re attracted to.
If they are standing with an angle towards you, you will do the same. And if they cross their legs while they’re sitting, you’ll do the same, etc. This is a common way to say a lot with your body. Body language signs of attraction that are easy to spot
#13: You can’t go anywhere.
Feel like you’re stuck in one place? You feel like you can’t stop thinking about this person. Like you’re almost under a spell? That’s because you find this person physically appealing. You really want them! It’s science. As we’ve already said, it’s like a drug reaction, a need, or a very strong desire.
How many of these are true about strong physical attraction? Is there someone you can’t stop thinking about? Let’s hope they feel the same way and you can move on to something else.
