We all know physical attraction is a fact of life. We’ve all experienced it before, whether it’s the first time we laid eyes on our crush or the butterflies we feel when we’re around someone we physically find stunning and simply gorgeous. But what about emotional attraction? Is it real, or is it just a myth?
Some people would say that emotional attraction is not real. They claim that we’re only attracted to people who are physically appealing to us and that anything else is just an illusion. But others believe that emotional attraction is very real and that it’s an important part of any relationship.
So, what’s the truth? Unfortunately, there’s no easy answer. Emotional attraction is a complex topic, and there’s still much we don’t understand about it. However, one thing is for sure if emotional attraction is a thing; then there must be some factors that trigger it in a person, and that are clearly not physical. So what are these factors and how to trigger them in a man?
What makes a man develop an emotional attraction to a woman?
There’s no one answer to this question, as everyone is attracted to different qualities in a partner. However, there are some general characteristics that tend to create an emotional connection between men and women.
1- Shared values:
Shared values and experiences can create a sense of closeness. In fact, shared values and beliefs are what make two people develop an emotional attraction to one another.
Men are generally attracted to not only their type of physique but also to women who they can have an intellectual connection with, and who they feel share the same values and beliefs. This is because anyone probably cares to some extent about being able to have deep conversations with their partner, which becomes easy with having shared values and beliefs.
When a man feels like he can open up to a woman and she will understand him, it creates a strong emotional bond that is hard to break. When a man and a woman share the same values and beliefs, they are more likely to develop an undeniable emotional attraction to each other. This is because they are able to relate to each other on a deeper level and understand each other’s points of view.
Shared values and beliefs also create a sense of trust and safety between two people, which can be another key ingredient in developing an emotional attraction. Ultimately, when two people have shared values and beliefs, they are more likely to have a strong emotional connection.
2- Spending more time together:
In addition, simply spending time together and getting to know each other better can also help to develop an emotional connection. Ultimately, it takes time and effort to build an emotional bond with someone, but the rewards of a lasting relationship are well worth it.
As you get to know someone, you begin to see them as more than just a pretty (or not initially a very attractive) face or figure. You learn about their hopes, dreams, and fears. You see them at their best and worst moments. Over time, this sharing of experiences creates a strong bond that can lead to an emotional attraction.
Another important factor is physical closeness. When you are close to someone physically, it triggers a release of oxytocin, the “cuddle hormone” that promotes feelings of bonding and attachment. So if you want to create an emotional connection with someone, make sure to spend plenty of time together and enjoy lots of physical affection.
3- Being confident and spontaneous:
When it comes to emotional attraction, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Every man is different, and as mentioned earlier: what works for one might not work for another. However, there are a few things that tend to be universally attractive to men.
For instance, confidence is always a turn-on. A woman who knows her own worth and carries herself with confidence is sure to catch a man’s eye. As opposed to someone shy or hesitant, a person who is confident; seems to be at peace with themselves, and isn’t afraid of anyone’s judgment is more pleasant to be around.
Similarly, men are often drawn to women who are able to express their emotions freely which makes them seem very charismatic. A woman who is comfortable being honest about her feelings is likely to be fun and come across as genuine, and that can be a very appealing quality too.
Ultimately, the best way to develop an emotional connection with a man is simply to be yourself. Be confident, be honest, and let him get to know the real you. If you do that, chances are he’ll start to feel emotionally attracted to you in no time.
4- Being reliable & being excited about life:
Anyone can get emotionally attracted to someone who is excited about life and likes to have fun, rather than someone who is boring. We all want to be in the presence of someone who will make us laugh and someone who is interested in the same things as us.
This type of person can inspire trust and security in our hearts and make them feel safe or happy in their company. We also want someone who is loving and caring, someone we can rely on, and someone who will be there for us when we need them.
There’s no denying that having someone make us laugh and show their unconditional support to us on a daily basis makes a massive difference in our lives. So it is safe to say that everyone wants to be with someone who will make them feel alive to some extent, and that will quickly become someone they can’t imagine living without.
