Last updated on June 6, 2022 by April Maccario

There is nothing like the feeling that intense chemistry can give you. Everything is intense, from the eye contact to the feelings that you get in the pit of your stomach. When the two of you are in the same location, it’s like no one else is around. 

This connection catches you off guard in the most amazing way possible. I’ve had intense chemistry with two people in my lifetime, and it was truly unforgettable. One of them, I still do. I moved and we keep winding up in the same location, over and over again. It’s unexplainable bliss. 

Chemistry is something that you might have with someone, and not even know it yet. If you have intense chemistry or want to know if you do, watch for these 17 signs. These are also a great way to tell if someone feels the same way about you! 

Just because you have that mysterious feeling that can only be explained as chemistry doesn’t mean that it’s mutual. Keep an eye out for the same signs to determine if he feels the same about you. 

Intense Chemistry Signs

1. Magnetism

The two of you are drawn to each other. When you’re in the same room, you slowly gravitate towards one another. Usually, you don’t even realize that you’re doing it. 

For example, you’re both out with friends. Suddenly, you realize that you’re dancing in his direction. You look towards him, and he’s already watching you and smiling ear to ear. He might be accidentally moving towards you too. 

2. Touching is awkward

touching is awkward

The first time you touch someone that you have intense chemistry with, you’ll feel a spark. It can catch you off guard, and it can make touching feel weird compared to other people. It’s like you know something is there, but you can’t put your finger on it or come up with a logical explanation. 

It makes it even more awkward because you usually accidentally touch someone when you like them. You’re sitting next to each other, and suddenly you brush your arm against theirs. They accidentally bump your leg with theirs when they scoot over. Those accidental touches that are full of mysterious energy are even more awkward when they catch you off guard. 

3. Other people notice it too

You might not realize it, but when you have intense chemistry signs with someone else, other people will easily notice that you have a connection. Your friends and family will be able to feel the tension in the air and pick up on how you act differently around one another. 

They might not say anything. Yet, you will still get an awkward side glance. Your friends might tease you about him because they know that you like them. If the man is married or in a relationship, expect some not-so-nice glances and comments when other people notice how much chemistry you two have together. 

4. Everything can feel awkward at first

With intense chemistry, you’re suddenly attracted to this person, and you don’t always know why. You might not even know them as a person. It can make speaking to them feel awkward at first as you try to decipher your feelings or figure out if they like you. 

This is because your subconscious knows that you like them a lot. On the other hand, your brain can’t seem to make sense of it all. It doesn’t seem logical that you would like someone you just met so much. It can help to stop trying to figure it out. Part of the beauty is the mystery behind it. 

5. Then, it flows naturally

Once you get used to the random sparks every time you touch each other, everything else flows naturally. You don’t have to force conversation with this person. Instead, you instantly find yourself laughing at all of their jokes and talking about values together. Sharing intimate things with them doesn’t seem hard. 

6. Eye contact is intense

This is one of the biggest intense chemistry signs to watch out for. With them, everything feels intense. That includes seemingly minor things, like eye contact. It can be so intense it’s almost uncomfortable. 

7. You have a special vibe

It can be hard to explain that you have a special vibe with someone you barely know, but that’s what happens when you have chemistry. The two of you feel weirdly closer than you do with anyone else, even friends that you’ve known for years. 

8. You both have the body language of attraction

When two people are attracted to one another, they display certain body language. The more signs of chemistry that are there, the more people will show these signs without realizing it. Some common examples of body language of attraction include: 

  • Looking each other in the eyes
  • Men tend to open their legs
  • Women tend to stand with their hands on their hips
  • Both sexes are known for licking their lips too

11. Silence is not uncomfortable

12. You’re Infatuated

Check out these signs of infatuation. The more of them you can relate to, the more likely you are infatuated with someone. Most people have a hard time understanding that they feel like this with one another if they barely know each other, but trust me, it’s possible. It’s also pretty likely to happen when you have strong chemistry with someone.

13. You focus on each other

Even when you’re talking to other people, the two of you hear what the other one is saying. You know what he’s wearing from across the room. When you have a connection with someone, you always seem to have them in the back of your mind. This means that you are the one always giving them feedback during group conversations, etc. 

14. You can feel their eyes on you

When you’re in their presence, you can tell that they are there by the immediate chemistry in the air. When they look at you, you can feel their eyes on you. Often, you’ll feel them looking at you before you realize that they are in the room with you. It’s almost like having a sixth sense. 

15. You can’t wait to see them again

Chemistry has a way of taking over your mind. Every possible thing you can experience with this person, you want to. You quickly find yourself arranging get-togethers with mutual friends so that you can invite them along. You go to a different gas station so that you can “accidentally” run into them.
