Attraction is something we have been experiencing since elementary school, I believe, and it always seemed like it is pretty straightforward. Well, science doesn’t agree because it recently discovered that attraction is way too complicated than we have ever thought.
Basically, our brains don’t simply go from “they are good looking” to “I want to date them”. That’s what we feel at least, but it is way too complicated, creepier, and weirder than that.
So in the process of liking someone, our brains over-complicate things by pulling the most unconscious and unrelated thoughts to that person in order to arrive at the one final conclusion, which is realizing that we are attracted to them.
For instance, when you see an attractive person for the very first time, there will be many different thoughts racing in your head, whether you are aware of it or not. Thoughts like: how’s the weather? What are they wearing? How’s my mood? Does he/she know me? Who died last month? Where is my dog?
In other words, before we actually realize that we want to date that person, our brain has already been through a long process, and most of the time, we are not aware of it.
After all, the feeling of attraction is weird, complex, and pretty awesome. So according to science, here are 7 of the weirdest things that make people attracted to you.
