Males display their attraction in different ways to how we might, and you might be wondering if the man in your life feels a real attraction to you or not, as it isn’t always so clear.
Whether by the things he says, his body language, or other subtle hints, there are ways to pick up on male attraction and to determine whether he is truly into you or not.
You might not feel so confident on picking up on these signs, but they are pretty concrete evidence that he does feel attraction towards you, and that there is potential to move forward.
Being able to pick up on these cues might give you the green light you are looking for to move forward with your relationship!
Can I Rely On His Body Language?
Body language is one of the best ways to tell how a person is feeling, or in this case, how someone feels about you.
It can take some time to figure out the specifics of reading body language, but if you are familiar with him and his mannerisms, you can quickly pick up changes in his body language, and especially changes in his body language which show he is attracted to you.
Body language is such a sure way to tell how someone feels because it is a subconscious action and something he really does not have that much control over.
His subconscious shows his true emotions and these are then shown through the way he acts towards you physically.
You can rely on the messages his body language is sending you to determine how he feels and to feel reassured in the fact that he does feel a strong attraction to you so that you can build your relationship from there.
Signs Of Male Attraction
Sometimes he might make his attraction obvious to you, and other times it might be more subtle and hidden away in small cues and body language.
If you are unsure of how he feels, these are some of the signs of attraction he might display towards you:
His Body Language
His body language will always give his feelings away, even if he is trying to hide his emotions from you for some reason.
His body will be a huge billboard for how he feels, and even the smallest of physical cues can give you the reassurance you need.
He will have an open stance towards you and be leaning towards you, his feet will be pointed towards you, and his head and chest and pointed in your direction. This shows his interest in you.
If he stands with his arms crossed around his chest and leans away from you, it is a sign that he isn’t interested in you and there isn’t much of an attraction there.
He would want to get close to you, and his body will show this by facing you, being close to you, or appearing open and approachable, instead of closed off and distant.
He Keeps Eye Contact
Eye contact is a huge giveaway that he is attracted to you.
If his eyes linger for longer than normal and if you catch him looking at you from the corner of your eye, there is a very strong chance he is attracted to you.
This is also made obvious when you are in conversation with him, and he is engaged and keeping eye contact throughout.
He doesn’t look distracted or distant, and you can see in his eyes that he is genuinely invested in the conversation and contact with you.
If you are able to get a close look – dilated pupils mean that he is looking at someone or something that makes him happy, so if he has dilated pupils looking at you, he is most probably quite attracted to you.
Nobody is immune to blushing, and at times we blush without even realizing it.
A slight blush on the cheeks might even go unnoticed by the person experiencing it, but if you notice his cheeks redden a bit around you, it could be a sign that he has an increased pulse rate. This means that he feels nervous around you, which is a strong sign of attraction!
His breath might even quicken, and his lips might redden along with his cheeks.
These are all uncontrollable signs that he would even notice he is sending across, but if you pay attention, are all subtle signs that you can look out for as a sign of his attraction.
He Smiles More
If he smiles when talking to you more than he does with other people, he is most likely attracted to you.
A smile is a sign of pure happiness and joy, and his attraction towards you could cause him to beam at the most unexpected of moments!
A true smile can be seen in the eyes, so make sure to keep eye contact with him often to be able to tell a real smile from a fake one.
He might even pop a smile as you walk in the room, so look out for this even when you aren’t engaged in the conversation!
Physical Touch Increases
When you are attracted to someone, you want to be around them, to hold their hand, or to feel connected to them in any way you can.
His attraction to you could lead to him being more physical with you. This might not be so obvious at first, with a slight touch on your arm or a graze as he walks past, but it could build up to more obvious signs like playing with your hair or laying his hand on your back.
Someone who is not attracted to you will not show more physical touch than normal.
If you notice an increase in small little touches here and there, and they give you a tingle when they happen, trust that it is a good sign of male attraction. There is a good chance you are both on the same page.
He Opens Up To You
He won’t spend time and effort telling you about himself or his life if he has no interest in you. If he takes the time to talk to you about himself, and tell you more personal details, such as about his family or past, then he is investing in you, which means he has an attraction to you.
His attraction makes him trust you, and he feels comfortable letting you in and opening up to you. He is placing you in his inner circle, and he most likely wouldn’t do this with just anyone.
It also shows he wants you to be around for quite some time, and that he is letting you know these personal things about him to start building a relationship with you.
He Is Interested In Your Life
Not only would he be open about his life and his past, but if he is attracted to you, he will also be interested in your life, and ask you questions that allow him to get to know you a little better as well.
Sometimes men aren’t interested in something long-lasting or substantial, and in these cases, they won’t be very interested to find out more about you.
However, if he really is interested in your life and is wanting to build a longer-term relationship, he will be genuinely wanting to get to know you.
He will pay attention to what you say, and ask questions that show his interest.
He Keeps In Contact
A sign of male attraction is contact, and if someone ghosts you or avoids texting you first or replying to your texts, there is a chance that they are just not interested.
A man who is attracted to you will stay in touch with you. He will text you without you having to always make the first move, and he will try to stay involved in your life, even if you cannot see each other so often.
He would want to have some form of contact with you, whether it is physical when he is with you, or through text when you are apart. This desire for constant contact is a sure sign that he is interested and invested in where your relationship might end up!
He Compliments You
Someone who is attracted to you will want to compliment you and try to get you to see yourself the way they see you.
Some of us are not so comfortable at taking compliments, but take his compliments and affirmations as a sign of his attraction to you!
This is even more true if he is someone who is usually shy or not very outspoken, as he would also be going out on a limb by offering these compliments to you.
He Doesn’t Blink As Often
This one is hard to notice because we don’t necessarily know how much he normally blinks.
But studies show that when we are very interested in something or someone, we blink less. The theory is, because we’re so engulfed in the person or situation in front of us, we become so focused and blink less.
So if he’s staring (in a non-creepy way) and no blinking much, he could just be fascinated with you and what you have to say!
He Asks Your Opinion
Men are the types that don’t like to ask for directions or help. It’s a common stereotype because it’s true.
So when a man starts asking for your opinion or thoughts on something, hat’s a great compliment.
It means he values your input and respects you. And you can’t have strong attraction without respect (nor would you want to.)
Spends Time With Your Friends/Family
This is an extremely powerful sign of male attraction! Men who want to spend time with your family and friends are probably very interested in developing a deeper relationship with you.
I mean, what’s more powerful sign of attraction than him willingly hanging out with you and your mom when he could be out with his bros?!
Family time is extremely intimidating for many men and the fact he’s putting himself in that situation willingly says a lot.
Undeniable Signs Of Male Attraction
There are a few signs of male attraction to look for from a man, and these can be great ways to determine how he feels about you.
To avoid being confused or to avoid disappointment, make sure to look for more than one of the above signs that he is attracted to you, just so you don’t get your hopes up and misunderstand any of the signs and signals he is sending your way!
