10 obvious signs he wants to be intimate with you tonight

Waiting for tonight…,” crooned Jennifer Lopez in her famous song and no prizes for guessing what she was waiting for. Honeymooners are usually singing this all the time, leaving behind no scope for guesswork! However, when you’re a little more into the relationship, things aren’t what they were and a much more subtle scheme takes over. But not everyone has the talent (and a music studio) to sing a sultry song about wanting to make love tonight, so how do you know? Well, from research and scientific facts, we have extracted these 10 signs that your man wants to be intimate with you tonight.

1. Has dilated pupils

Eyes are the windows to our soul, and there’s a scientific explanation. When certain parts of our brains get excited, certain areas light up, and this is reflected directly in our pupils. So a state like arousal will most certainly show up in dilated pupils, so look there!

2. Catch him staring

Yes, we’re still with the eyes. Men are visual creatures, and seeing something arousing can light up the areas in their brains that we talked about earlier. A man who is thinking of sex will be quite likely to stare at his partner, so don’t be surprised if you catch him staring at you instead of the game on TV!

3. Cleans up his act

Men are known to be slobs, so when they suddenly clean up their act, you can guess something’s afoot. Showering, shaving, changing into something more fitting, are all clues that tell you what’s coming. Even men who are generally well-groomed will make that extra effort, making it obvious!

4. Wears cologne

This is the next stage after getting cleaned up. Not all men do this, but quite a few will dab on some cologne or become a little friendly with the deodorant. You’ll literally be able to smell his intentions from a mile away. Now you know how they think up ideas for men’s deodorant ads!

5. Acts attentive 

Your man might suddenly appear to be attentive to everything you say, but remember that the operative word here is ‘acts.’ He might not actually be listening, but he wants you to think that he is, to score some brownie points.

6. Gets up close and personal

It’s quite likely that a man who is looking for some action will try to cozy up a little, if not that obviously. An attempt to brush past you or sit close while watching TV are those little signs that give away what’s going on in his head! Of course, this will further ensure flying sparks!

7. Low pitched voice

Genetically, women are programmed to find deep voices attractive, which explains Amitabh Bachchan’s numerous female fans! Men subconsciously play on this by lowering the pitch of their voices and sometimes they take it so low you can barely hear them!

8. Asks for it 

By ‘it,’ we mean that they ask for some touch, and not in that way. They’ll probably request a head massage or shoulder rub, an excuse to literally get in touch with you. They’re probably counting on some skin-to-skin contact to get the fires burning on both sides!

9. Helps out

Have a couch potato at home who springs into action unexpectedly? It’s not for nothing, you see! Men know that household chores take up a good chunk of your time and add stress, both of which are not conducive to a good time. So they might try to ease things for you and get in your good books at the same time.

10. Sixth sense

Well sometimes, a girl just knows! You don’t need any scientific hullabaloo when you have a woman’s sixth sense that just tells you what he’s thinking about. It could be her subconscious animal instinct telling her that her mate is ready to … well … mate, or it could be the combined effect of all the above signs. But trust us, when she knows, she knows.

Being able to read these signs is certainly fun and it’s good to have some anticipation about what’s about to come. At the same time, being pleasantly surprised has its benefits too! Whatever it is, the goal is to have a good time, and cement the bond that is crucial to a long lasting and loving relationship.
