I’m not sure where the term “butterflies in your stomach” came from – nor do I know what actual physical phenomenon is at play.
But I do know that I love it and so do you.
That’s why this Reddit thread is so uplifting:
So what makes our tummies flutter? Let’s find out.
Besides flirting, anyone I am attracted to smiling because of something I said gives me butterflies.
Doesn’t have to be good or anything. Just Idgaf singing.
So full of life, I love that sh*t man.

3. Love languages.
Physical touch. Holding hands, arm, hug, leaning against me.
Just one of my love languages.
I’m usually fine with talking to girls but if a girl I find somewhat mildly attractive, touches me anywhere below the neck, I will collapse in approximately 3 minutes
When she genuinely shows interest in me.
And I don’t need to “run after her, because I am the man”
When she sends a pic for no reason.
When she leaned to kiss me on our first date.
Took me a while to figure out how to speak English again.
Making their interest abundantly clear without any games; a little nervous on a date; offering to pay for anything.
If in a relationship, random gestures that girls would find sweet would do the same for most guys (i.e., surprise little gifts etc.)
Give me compliments.
It doesn’t happen a whole lot, but if a girl says I got cute eyes or just am cute then that gives me a nice tingly feeling
Laughing with you, touching, looking into your eyes.
I think the most anxious I ever felt was when a long-time crush looked straight into my eyes after a hug, and it told me everything she was feeling.
Kissed her for the first time right then and there.
And now we’ve been dating 5 years.
Prolonged eye contact for no f*cking reason.
When they wear those sweaters that a little too big for them and one shoulder peeks through the neck.

When they tease you in just the right way
Usually they buy me caterpillars and then I bring them home.
Then they grow
Any attention at all.
Yup, seems like a pretty comprehensive list to me. We men are a simple lot. We’re really not that hard to please.
What would you add to this list?
