We've all been there. They're sitting across from you looking you deep in the eyes, head slightly turned sideways, with the corner of their mouth curled into a smirk. You say something funny not that funny , and they laugh all too easily. Chances are you have sexual chemistry with this person. Though there's a good chance you're both feeling it, there are obvious signs that you have sexual chemistry with someone you're dating or seeing casually. When someone makes eye contact with you, that's a key sign they're attentive and interested in what you have to say.
7 signs that you have sexual chemistry with someone

M ate attraction involves multiple sensory modalities with almost as many variations as there are numbers of species. It broadly includes pheromones of single-celled organisms to those involved in uniting mates over distances of several kilometers, elaborate plumages and songs in birds, croaks and chucks in frogs, electrical discharges in fish, etc. In insects, a pattern of light flashes from a firefly or of chirps from a cricket are conspicuous signals used to attract mates, but the most common form of long-distant sex attraction in insects and many other animal species involves invisible odors chemicals!

The chemical communication system used to attract mates involves not only the overt chemical signals but also indirectly a great deal of chemistry in the emitter and receiver. As an example, in emitting female moths, this includes enzymes and cofactors, mRNA, genes of the pheromone biosynthetic pathways, hormones and genes involved in controlling pheromone production, receptors and second messengers for the hormones, and host plant cues that control release of the hormone. In receiving male moths, this includes the chemistry of pheromone transportation in antennal olfactory hairs binding proteins and sensillar esterases and the chemistry of signal transduction, which includes specific dendritic pheromone receptors and a rapid inositol triphosphate second messenger signal. A fluctuating plume structure is an integral part of the signal since the antennal receptors need intermittent stimulation to sustain upwind flight. Input from the hundreds of thousands of sensory cells is processed and integrated with other modalities in the central nervous system, but many unknown factors modulate the information before it is fed to motor neurons for behavioral responses.
And what does it mean to have chemistry anyway? But there are chemical components to the sexual chemistry equation. Get it? In a simple graphic , created by Tito Adhikary, the categories of love, lust, and attraction are paired with the hormones that contribute to each.
