25 Signs of Male Attraction (How to Know He's Yours)
1. He Gives You 'That Smile'
When a guy smiles at you he’s indicating that on some level he finds you attractive.
Does that mean every man that smiles at you wants to have sex with you? No.
Could it mean that he finds you attractive and wants to get to know you? Yes.
It depends on the situation but if a man takes the time to look at you and smile you can assume he finds you attractive.
2. He Holds Your Eyes
Holding eye contact is a powerful sign of male attraction.
He’s looking at you with the hope or expectation you will look back at him in a similar way.
Holding eye contact isn’t staring. A guy standing there staring at you and not saying anything comes off creepy.
If he holds eye contact with you it's likely he’s interested in you and finds you attractive.
3. He Positions Himself Near You
Most guys are nervous when they see a beautiful woman. They hesitate for fear of rejection.
He might not approach you in a direct straight line.
He’ll move closer to gauge your level of interest and then if he feels its safe to proceed he'll move closer again.
Men are biologically programmed to move towards women they’re attracted to.
I see this in the gym when an attractive woman is working out. Guys will naturally start gravitating towards her.
4. He Makes an Effort to Talk to You
A man won’t go out of his way to talk to you unless he feels attraction for you.
If its a work function he might be networking or being friendly. You'll know right away by his vibe when he starts speaking.
If it’s a social setting and he makes an effort to approach you and talk to you, he likes you.
5. He Tries to Look Good Around You
A man who looks his best is more attractive to women than a guy who looks his worse.
Think of a male peacock spreading his feathers when female peacocks are nearby.
Men are no different. They want you to notice them.
Men want to look attractive to the women to increase their chances of selection and sex.
If a guy makes an effort to look good for you he finds you attractive and he wants you to feel attraction to him.
6. He Initiates Physical Contact
Physical contact is a clear sign he’s attracted.
He might touch your arm, put his hand on your back or touch you in some other way.
Physical gestures are a powerful sign of male attraction.
7. He Gets Nervous Around You
Men fear rejection from women. The more attractive they find you the more they fear the rejection.
Even a confident man can feel like this.
If he seems nervous when you’re around that could mean he finds you attractive.
Some guys won’t even make eye contact. They don't want to do or say something that might turn you off.
8. He Vies for Your Attention
I’ll use another gym analogy. A guy plants himself close to an attractive woman and starts lifting his weights.
He puts more effort in that he usually would. He’s trying to get her attention.
He’s looking for a segway to further the interaction.
Men look for confirmation that a woman likes them before they proceed.
They often miss the subtle signs that that same woman has already given them.
9. He Changes When You're Around
Most guys tighten up a bit when they’re around a woman they’re attracted to.
They don’t want to risk doing or saying the wrong thing and looking stupid.
Men can be self-conscious about how an attractive woman perceives them.
If he changes his behaviour around you it's because he doesn't want to lose his chance to be with you. He's playing it safe.
10. He's Super Sweet to You
He’ll go out of his way to assist you. Opening a door for you. Offering to help you with something. Being a “nice guy”.
He’s being extra nice to you because he's attracted to you.
He wants you to like him and select him to be your partner.
11. He Asks You About Yourself
When a man finds you attractive he’ll want to know more about you.
He’ll ask you questions about your personal life.
He'll want to know what your interests are, what you do for work and whatever else he might ask.
If he’s showing an interest in your personal life then you can assume he likes you.
If he didn’t he wouldn’t be asking.
12. He Shows His Soft Side
I know a few tough guys. Good guys, but tough guys.
I’ve seen these guys turn to butter when they’re talking to a women they're attracted to.
It makes sense, he wants to show you he’s a good guy, a friendly guy and that being in his company is a safe bet.
13. He Compliments You
When a man compliments you what he's saying is that he finds you attractive and he wants to be with you.
There’s a difference between a genuine compliment and a sleazy remark.
The compliment will come from a decent guy who finds you attractive.
14. He's Jealous When You're With Other Guys
When a guy likes a woman he’ll become territorial.
He doesn’t want other men close to you or interacting with you.
He knows what men’s intentions are when they talk to a woman, and he doesn't want lose the girl he likes to another other guy.
An overprotective or jealous guy is a turn-off. It shows insecurity.
But it’s normal when a guy likes you and he sees you talking to another guy who could be his competition.
15. He Notices When Guys Check You Out
When he likes you he'll have a sixth sense about any male competition that could sabotage his being with you.
If he feels his chances with her are in jeopardy, he'll make it known to the other guy that he should stay away.
The gesture will be subtle at first but it can also get serious and turn into violence.
If he's displaying this type of behaviour he's definitely attracted to you.
He doesn't want another man stealing you away before he's had his chance with you.
16. He Flirts With You
A guy who flirts with every girl he meets is obnoxious and loses credibility fast.
But flirting is common and is a sign from men that they find a woman attractive.
Flirting is a safe way to test the waters.
If he flirts and she responds that’s works as a green light for him to proceed with the interaction.
If he flirts and she’s cold or doesn’t reciprocate, he can back off before getting rejected outright.
17. He Keeps Your Conversation Going
If a man makes an effort to keep the conversation going it’s a sign he’s interested.
Guys aren’t all that complicated.
If he wasn’t attracted to you he wouldn’t approach you in the first place, let alone try to keep the conversation going.
18. He Indicates His Attraction
This is one of the most obvious and powerful signs of male attraction.
If he hints that he finds you attractive he’s into you.
There are many traits that could attract a man to you.
It could be your smile, your intellect, your fashion style or your sex appeal.
Conveying that he finds you attractive is like saying “I like you and I want you and we should get to know each other”.
20. He Shows His Masculinity
When a man notices an attractive woman close by he’ll adjust his physiology.
He’ll move his shoulders back and his chest out. He’ll stand up straight.
It's automated response to ensure he looks good to her.
He’s sending a message that he’s a male who is worthy of her selection.
21. He Checks You Out More Than Once
When a man is attracted to a woman he wants to look at her.
He doesn’t want to stare or look creepy but he’ll glance more than once.
His hope is their eyes will meet and he’ll get a sign that you too are also interested.
If he’s looking more than once he’s attracted to you.
Men know that if a woman likes them she’ll use her eyes to convey it. He’s looking for that sign.
22. He Compliments Your Appearance
Men won’t go out of their way to notice something if it’s not in their own self-interest to do so.
When a man notices details about a woman's appearance and mentions it he definitely likes her.
23. He's More Friendly Than Usual
When you’re close by and he’s interacting with other people he’ll be that little bit nicer.
Not that he’s doing it to impress you (well he kind of is), it’s his way of conveying to you that he’s a good guy.
It also gives him social proof. If other people are responding well to him that indicates he's a decent guy.
That might tip the scales towards him in your eyes.
24. He Listens When You Speak
The level of interest he shows when he’s talking with you indicates his level of attraction.
If it was a casual conversation with a normal person he wouldn't be so interested.
He see's you as special so he’s more interested in hearing what you have to say.
25. He Doesn't Look at Other Girls
Most guys notice when a good looking woman woman walks by.
Men have little control over it. It's how their brains are wired.
So if he’s around you and he’s not even acknowledging other women then you’re the one he’s interested in.
Best Quotes About Male Attraction
“That's always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they're pretty. It's like picking your breakfast cereals based on colour instead of taste.” ― John Green, Paper Towns
“The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only.” - Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“I couldn't possibly have sex with someone with such a slender grasp on grammar!” - Russell Brand
