Physical attraction is a science. It's your body's chemical reaction to that hottie across the bar or your favorite barista at your go-to coffee shop. (Think Lorelai and Luke.) There's nothing like that first spark between you and someone new. It's exhilarating, and when it leads to an actual relationship, it can seem like the best feeling in the world. And while that early, hot physical attraction may not always be as intense as it was in the beginning, there are several signs your partner is physically attracted to you that prove your bae still thinks you're all that and a bag of chips, no matter how much time has passed. You know, in case you had any doubts.
Before you start analyzing any little thing your partner does as a lack of physical attraction, it's important to note that things between you might simmer down over time. You may not always be as obsessed with each other as you were on day one, but that doesn't mean the love isn't there. "Oftentimes, the different levels of comfort in the relationship kind of bring on different physical reactions," Brit Burr, editor at large and writer for Psych N Sex, tells Elite Daily. "The first level of comfort would be actually feeling comfortable to reach out and make physical connections. The second one would be just being comfortable with each other’s bodies inhabiting the space in a less deliberate way."
Remember: Your bae has no reason not to be physically attracted to you from one day to the next. Chances are they're still as crazy about you as they were in the beginning, they just may show it differently once they're more comfortable in your relationship. But if you're still in doubt, read on for five signs that attraction hasn't gone anywhere, nor will it.
