Singletons have a 'radar' to detect attraction

Posted on: February 5, 2013 16:20:22

Singletons have a When you go on a date, you always hope that sparks will fly and a connection will be made between the two of you so that one day you can call that person your new partner.

Many singletons are probably only too aware of the blushing, giggling and butterflies you normally get when you fancy someone on a date, but there is also a lot more happening inside the body that you can't actually see.

According to a US study, mutual attraction between a man and woman can cause a spike in testosterone and as a result, a visible change in hormone levels can be identified.

Researchers at Northwestern University studied around 200 heterosexual men and women who volunteered to take part in about 2,000 speed dates.

Willing participants provided saliva samples for hormone analysis which was taken a week before going out on their dates, and more swabs were taken before and after the meeting.

The findings revealed that hormone levels didn't change when just one of the individuals found their date attractive, but surprisingly, when the feeling was mutual, both genders experienced a 'bump' in testosterone.

"The findings do suggest that we have some sort of 'radar' to detect who's attracted to us ... but it's not clear from this study whether people are consciously aware of this or not," said Dr Robin Edelstein, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Michigan, who wasn't involved in the study.

It appears that the findings prove that the feeling that someone else is attracted to us is one of the strongest contributors to us liking them in return.

"If you actually ask people to list what they most want in another person, right up towards the top is finding someone who is attracted to them," said Jeffrey Hall, an assistant professor in the department of communications studies at the University of Kansas.
