Are you currently single and exploring today’s infinite, ever-expanding dating pool? Are you finding it difficult to wade through your options and to tell who is into you?
If you want to know if someone is into you sexually, there are a few signs and signals to keep in mind.
More often than not, someone who is into you will let you know, either by doing so directly or by attempting to pursue a romantic or sexual relationship with you.
Here are some specific signs to watch for.
While it may seem silly or frivolous, gut instinct is a real, scientific phenomenon.
If you are around someone and you believe they may be interested in you physically or sexually, you might simply “feel” it.
If you feel as if someone is attracted to you or thinking of you in a certain way, chances are, they just might be.
Listening to your gut instinct and intuition can help you to navigate the dating scene once you are ready.
If a girl or guy simply cannot stop flirting with you, they likely think about you sexually, or at least in a more intimate way.
Anyone who can’t stop flirting with another person is attempting to withhold feelings and emotions that they do not yet want on public display.
If the person you are interested in will not stop flirting with you, making flirty remarks, complimenting you, or attempting to spend more time with you in a flirtatious manner, then chances are that they are also thinking of you on a more sexual level.
Have you noticed that whenever you are around a specific person that they are unable to keep their hands off of you? Are they more touchy than others?
Do they shake your hand longer than average, or attempt to keep their hands on you even when it is not necessary?
If so, it is likely that this person has a physical or sexual interest in you.
When a person is interested in someone sexually, they may find it difficult to keep their hands away from them, especially when they are in close proximity to them.
Even if he or she does not realize they are touching you more than usual, they may be doing so subconsciously to get closer to you.
One way to determine whether or not someone is truly into you physically and sexually is increased eye contact.
Although eye contact on its own is not a strict indicator of physical or sexual attraction, lingering and increased amounts of eye contact after dropping other subtle hints of attraction is a major sign.
If you have noticed other signs besides increased eye contact, such as increased touching and spending time together, additional eye contact supports the idea that they are into you sexually.
Dropping subtle hints of being attracted to you is another way to tell if someone is thinking of you sexually.
When a man or woman is into you sexually, they may have a difficult time hiding it.
Subtle hints such as asking to spend time together, getting closer physically, increased touching, and more eye contact are all indicators that you have an admirer.
If someone is shy about speaking their mind or connecting with sexual partners, they may act coy or shy when it comes to making plans or attempting to spend more time with you.
This one sounds a bit silly, but it is, in fact, a great indicator of whether or not someone is into you and thinking of you sexually.
The use of texting today has become one of the most preferred communication methods among all age groups and demographics.
If you notice that someone is becoming increasingly flirtatious with their texts, reactions, images, and even with the emojis they choose to use, they may be thinking of you sexually or on a more intimate and personal level.
The use of flirty reactions, GIF graphics, and emojis can help tell a story without words, which is common among those who are shy or more reserved when it comes to expressing their feelings and emotions.
Keep an eye on someone you think has sexual feelings for you, as there are plenty of body language indicators that can help you to gauge just about any situation or scenario you are placed in.
Watch for body language signs such as grooming, lip licking, eyebrow lifting, and even increased engagement when having discussions, as these are all telltale signs that someone is into you physically, sexually, and even romantically.
If you notice that someone around you is constantly licking their lips whenever they talk with you, there may be more on their minds than meets the eye.
When you have feelings for someone intimately, or if you begin to think about someone sexually, subconscious behaviors and body language are more likely to emerge and manifest themselves.
When you spend time with someone you think might be interested in you sexually, take note if they seem anxious or nervous.
When someone is interested in you sexually, but they are too coy or shy to speak their minds, they may appear nervous, anxious, or even awkward around you.
Individuals who are not as confident in themselves, or those who struggle with self-esteem, may find it difficult to express themselves and their feelings to others, hence appearing anxious and overly nervous.
One of the biggest signs that someone is interested in you as more than just a friend is that they will attempt to remain in your presence as long as possible.
Whether you are co-workers leaving a meeting or if you are hosting a friendly gathering at your home, you will notice if someone is into you sexually as they will not want to leave your side or presence.
Someone who is interested in pursuing a sexual or intimate relationship with you will likely want to use any time you have together to bond and to get to know you.
You may notice them offering to lend a hand or asking if you need anyone to stay late to help clean.
Someone who is into you physically and sexually will find it difficult to stay away from you for extended periods of time, especially if you truly enjoy each other’s company and time spent together.
Anytime someone is interested in another individual on a sexual or romantic level, they will attempt to spend time with them – alone.
Spending time alone provides an opportunity to bond and to get to know a potential sexual partner on a more personal and intimate level.
If you are being asked to spend time alone with a certain someone and you are unsure why, this may be the reason.
When someone gets an opportunity to spend time alone with you, they may feel less pressured and more open to communicating about their feelings and how they see you or your relationship.
Have you ever been asked about your dating life or your sexual preferences by someone you are talking to?
If so, they may have more in mind than a simple platonic friendship.
When someone begins asking about your dating life, or even your sexual preferences, and they are not just a friend or already committed to someone else, they are likely trying to show you that they are interested in you and thinking about you in a sexual manner.
If you feel comfortable discussing your dating preferences and your sexual preferences, you can move forward to determine what type of relationship he or she is seeking with you.
If you do not feel comfortable speaking openly about your dating and sexual preferences, it is best to break the relationship off as soon as possible to avoid feeling uncomfortable whenever you are around them.
If you notice that someone around you is always fidgeting with their appearance always trying to look their best for you, they may have feelings or be thinking of you sexually.
Apart from grooming in front of you and tending to basic hygiene matters, someone who is interested in you will make a concerted effort to toy with and tweak their own wardrobe and outfit in front of you.
From fixing messy hair to buttoning unbuttoned buttons, someone who is thinking of you sexually or physically will spend more time working on their own appearance and tweaking the way that they look around you.
Have you recently been receiving compliments on your physical appearance from this person?
Do you feel as if you are the only one receiving compliments like this from that person? If so, they may be thinking of you sexually.
Whenever someone is thinking of another person sexually or on an intimate level, they are more likely to take note of their personal appearance as well as the outfits and clothing they choose to wear.
If a man is into you and thinking of you sexually, he will not miss an opportunity to let you know he approves of your attire and how it looks on you.
When a man or woman believes you look attractive, they will want you to know it, especially if they are interested in pursuing a sexual or romantic relationship with you.
If you spend time with someone and they are always happy, smiling, and laughing with you, there is a chance that they are thinking of you sexually or in a more intimate and personal manner.
Laughter is often key to a long-lasting, healthy relationship, whether you are looking for serious marriage material or if you are interested in having some fun.
If you are around someone who is constantly attempting to improve their appearance by grooming themselves in front of you, they may be subconsciously trying to show off.
Oftentimes, when an individual is attracted to someone else, they will conduct themself in a manner that is driven by subconscious thought and attraction.
Even if the person does not realize they are grooming or cleaning themselves in front of you, they will do so out of habit when they have a strong physical or sexual attraction.
When you are around someone who has feelings for you or who is attracted to you physically, it is not uncommon for them to get lost in their train of thought or find themselves stumbling over their own words.
When someone stutters or appears nervous and lost in thought when they are around you, they may be thinking of you in a physical, sexual, or romantic capacity.
If you really want to know if someone is into you or thinking of you sexually, be direct with them. If they are open, honest, and direct about the way they feel about you and their desires, you can then determine whether or not you are a good fit for one another.
After attempting to read body language and subtle signs, sometimes the best course of action is to simply be direct and upfront about how you are feeling and what it is that you want to know.
While there is no clearcut way to tell if someone is thinking about you sexually, there are often fairly obvious signs that can help you pick up on whether or not there is any interest.
The more in tune you are with the actions and behaviors of those around you, the easier it becomes to detect when someone is sending you signals or hinting that they are interested in a sexual relationship with you.
