Have you ever idolized someone in your head, only to be disappointed by them once you got to know them? Imagine that scenario, except with sex. Nothing sucks quite like having a huge crush on someone, only to hook up with them and discover the sex was just meh. And who has time for meh sex? Certainly not you. The good news is, understanding the signs you and your crush won’t be sexually compatible before getting too attached might help you avoid that disappointment later on down the road.
Before you can know if you and your crush are sexually compatible, it's important to know that there are a few components to sexual compatibility in the first place. "There is compatibility in terms of how you see sex and what it means for you, and these drive your behaviors and desire in and toward sex," sex and intimacy coach Irene Fehr tells Elite Daily. "Understanding what sex means to both of you will tell you if you’re on the same page with your partner or not."
But that's not all. "Then, there is physical compatibility in terms of smell, chemistry, and touch," Fehr says. "You might like the person and be attracted to them, but upon engaging in touch, you might not feel any chemistry with their body."
If you want to gauge whether or not you and your crush will be sexually compatible, here's what Fehr says to look out for.
