Signs Of Magnetic Attraction Between Two People

There are some couples whose attraction takes time to develop. Days, months, even years pass before they realize how well they fit together. For other couples, however, attraction hits like a lightning strike. It comes out of nowhere and is utterly undeniable. If you think you’re experiencing the magic that is magnetic chemistry between two people, look no further than these signs.

  1. It’s like they share a brain. They communicate without words. Somehow, each seems to know what the other person is thinking while everyone else is still rushing to keep up. They may not finish each other’s sentences yet, but they may as well be. Their ideas, ways of speaking, and senses of humor are in sync. There’s an undercurrent of communication that flows through all their interactions.
  2. They make intense eye contact. Our eyes betray our true feelings, no matter how hard we try to conceal them. Sustained eye contact reveals that the chemistry between two people is intense. Their gazes are drawn to each other even when they’re around others. Eye contact also creates deeper intimacy and trust. If they’re constantly locking eyes, it’s a powerful indication that their attraction runs deep and is only getting deeper.
  3. They act like the only two people in the room. They could be in the middle of a crowd and still act as if no one else exists. Their connection is so strong that they gravitate towards each other, often without realizing it. They dominate group conversation by talking to each other rather than with everyone else, and they seem captivated when the other is speaking.
  4. They get butterflies. Their attraction is physical. Whenever they see each other, their stomachs flutter with excitement and nerves. It may be obvious to everyone else that they’re crazy about each other, but neither of them is certain that the attraction is mutual. All they know is that they’re full of anxious excitement when the other person is near, and get wait to see them whenever they’re apart.
  5. They feel like they’ve known each other forever. Their attraction is so instantaneous that it’s as if they’d met in another life. They know each other on a fundamental level, which makes them feel both excited and comfortable at the same time. A connection of this kind is special, and may even indicate that they are soulmates. This is one of the biggest signs of magnetic attraction between two people.
  6. They smile constantly. When people are attracted to each other, their mood is lifted by being in the same space. They are genuinely delighted to be in the other’s company. People also smile when they’re embarrassed, a feeling which is inevitable when you’re talking to somewhere you’re attracted to and find yourself stumbling over your words or saying something too revealing.
  7. They touch each other. Nothing prompts outsiders to say “Get a room” like the touching that results from unresolved sexual tension. If they haven’t slept together, their bodies will be begging for physical contact. They might give each other shoulder rubs or touch each other’s arms or backs to emphasize something in the conversation. They may think it’s subtle and innocent, but for bystanders, it may as well be x-rated.
  8. They flirt. The banter between them flows like an electric current. It’s rapid-fire and constant, often leaving those around them wondering what on earth they’re talking about. They tease each other and make eye contact across the room. They act like love-struck teenagers who can’t find the courage to express the feelings which are obvious to everyone else.
  9. They don’t mind silence. People who are out of sync often feel like they have to talk constantly to communicate. People who are drawn together by magnetic attraction communicate on another level. They can sit together in silence, working on separate tasks, and still feel like they’re interacting. Being around each other is so natural that they don’t need to smooth over any awkwardness with small talk.
  10. They find each other hilarious. They are constantly laughing with each other, even at jokes that aren’t funny to anyone else. They are so wrapped up in their attraction for each other that anything either of them says may as well be the funniest thing ever said. Studies show that the more a couple laughs together, even if they’re complete strangers, the more likely they are to fall in love. If this is true, they are falling for each other.
  11. Everyone sees it. Magnetic attraction makes people oblivious to everyone around them and conspicuous at the same time. They feel like they’re in their own secret world that no one else can see, untouchable by the outside. Meanwhile, everyone around them can see their chemistry from miles away. Their romance is a common topic of conversation. It’s an open secret to everyone except them.
  12. They lose track of time. An hour may as well be a minute for all they know. When they’re together, time disappears. They often wonder how a conversation started because their interactions develop so naturally that they could speak for hours without losing momentum or train of thought. They enjoy each other’s company so much that time seems to evaporate.
