Everyone else in the room can feel it. Can you?
It can sometimes be difficult to know if sexual chemistry is happening between you and another person, even if the sexual tension is palpable to everyone else in the room. You know you’re flirting but is it a friendly kind of flirting, or is there an intention behind that touch on your arm or that look in their eye?
There are times when it feels as if we need a guide book or something to spell it out — yes, there’s sexual chemistry between you so go for it, or no, there’s nothing sexual here. But making a move and being wrong can be humiliating.
You can feel foolish and no one enjoys that, so you watch what the other person is doing very carefully, looking to see if they’re giving you a definite sign that they’re not just being nice and that they’re attracted to you.
Sexual tension is more than two attractive people talking to each other; there needs to be sexual chemistry and sexual compatibility there. You can get so hung up on trying to interpret the other person’s behavior that you start to close off and you might as well wear a sign that says, “Sorry, not interested.”
Although taking a chance can be dangerous (especially to your ego), it can ultimately lead to something exciting and the risk you take can pay off.
When you have the ability to identify sexual tension, you can be more confident in your actions, and you not only can be confident enough to make a move, but you’re more open to the possibilities of the other person’s actions.
If you’re not in a place in your life where you’re open to someone putting the moves on you, you need to know what’s happening so it doesn’t progress to the point where you’re in an uncomfortable position.
Here's how he reveals his sexual tension based on his zodiac sign.
He feels sexual tension when he finishes up a game of tennis or hiking and your hands touch or your eyes lock. He stays that way a little too long, and while it's enjoyable, there's something kind of excruciating about it too. He's normally a man of action but the sexual electricity is kind of shorting out his brain.
He enjoys physical contact anyway, but when he hugs you, he takes a few extra seconds to hold you close, feeling his body next to yours, smelling your scent — just taking it all in. And then he doesn't make any effort to pull away.
He's flirting with you in what he thinks is a purely friendly way, and then he says something about how gorgeous you are and how the two of you would make a perfect couple. He says it as a joke, but it doesn't come off that way. The truth is the sexual tension has thrown him off his game.
It sounds real and as if you can't think of two people who would be better together than the both of you. You can see it in their eyes that they're wondering if they should take it seriously, so you rapidly change the subject to something safe.
He suddenly has amnesia about personal space boundaries and stands too close to you when you talk to him. Normally, he likes a certain amount of space between himself and another person but this time he can't get close enough. He feels as if your body is the magnet and he's Iron Man. The sexual chemistry makes everything magnetized.
The two of you are surrounded by people (as is so often the case with the ever-popular Leo), but it's as if you're sharing a secret. Everyone can hear the two of you and they can see the attraction, but they can't comprehend the strength of the sexual current that's passing between the both of you.
He makes up reasons to be closer to you. He shows you how to do something on your computer or he fixes a broken lamp. He uses small things as an excuse to touch you such as putting the fried wire from the broken hard drive into your hand. Although these touches are small, for him, they're powerful in sexual tension.
When he says something slightly sexual to you, trying to keep it together and act nonplussed, there's a slight change in him: his voice gets smoother, deeper, and his eyes get more focused. When he's feeling sexual tension, he loses his normal charming and social behavior.
When you're finally alone with him after being in a group, things feel charged. He may have just followed you into the kitchen to get another glass of wine but it feels kind of naughty and dangerous. Everything is the same, and yet, it feels different. He's so sexually charged, it permeates the air surrounding you and when he casually touches you, he feels something like an electric shock.
He'll be laughing and telling jokes when the laughter will stop; the two of you will be completely silent but you and he will still be engaged with your eyes. He'll see things about you that he never noticed before like the flecks of gold in your eyes or how your smile seems warm and authentic. It's as if all his senses are heightened by all the sexual tension.
He knows that he should leave the party or gathering because he has a project due or a lot of work hanging over his head, but he keeps making up excuses to stay a little while longer. He wants to be in the same room with you, engaged and connected for as long as possible. The sexual tension is shifting his priorities and making him act out of character.
He and you on two opposite sides of the room, but every time you look over at him, he's looking at you. It doesn't matter how many people are in his line of vision; it's as if there's only the both of you. It doesn't take long for him to place himself directly in front of you. He doesn't even need to speak as it's not about words, it's about raw sexual chemistry.
He'll be talking to someone and suddenly get so distracted by their eyes, or their smile, or their lips, that he'll forget what he was talking about or where he is at the time. He's so distracted by the sexual energy pulsating through his body, he can't form a complete sentence.
