Professional dating coach Jacob Lucas went viral on TikTok for a little “body language secret” that he claims is based on evolutionary biology. It is a sign someone finds you attractive, and they’re not even aware that they’re doing it.
“You will start to recognize people doing it all the time,” Lucas says in the TikTok. “When I first learned it, I was like ‘that can’t be real,’ and then I started seeing it happen all the time and I was like ‘wow that has changed the whole game for me.'”
Okay, let’s change the game for ourselves!
“So when somebody finds you attractive,” he says, “what you will find is that they will itch the back of their hand very lightly like this…”
“Or scratch their collarbone.”
“The reason they do is basically they’re inviting you to groom them,” he explains. “Obviously, this is on a subconscious level, because we don’t want people going around grooming us.”
He goes on to say that grooming builds social bonds, so someone “inviting” you to groom them is indicating the desire to grow some sexy bonds with you. Or they have psoriasis.
Personally, I’m always a little skeptical of men who base human attraction on “evolutionary science” because it’s usually a bunch of made-up crap to justify why they’re only attracted to women who shave their armpits.
But I will definitely be keeping an eye out for the tell-tale scratch, as soon as I’m allowed to leave the house and be around people again.
