Ahh, one-sided love. It has been a subject that has plagued kings and nerds since the dawn of mankind. From the tragic ancient Greek story of Orpheus and Eurydice, to Janet Jackson promising an unnamed individual that if she were their daughter, she would make them call her name and ask to whom it belonged, We are obsessed with this phenomenon as a species. That may be why the “love eye trick” on TikTok is said to play with the mentality of a person that is trending online.
What is the “psychological trick of lovers” on TikTok?
In a viral clip uploaded by TikToker @sophieroselloyd, she shows off the trick in a video clip, a small technique she uses to attract potential followers.
How does one perform the “psychological trick of love with eyes” that is going viral on TikTok?
It is actually a triangular movement consisting of three parts. As Sophie writes in the top comments of her viral video: “It’s a love triangle, left eye, lip and right eye. Works wherever you are but choose the right timing, ladies. “

By “timed it,” it’s safe to assume you’ve had a one-on-one conversation with someone before pursuing this subtle three-pointed eye trick. Maybe doing this to the cute waiter you’ve had a crush on or the US Secretary of Defense to fulfill your role as the best sleeping spy of all time won’t work.
Hope this helps! Let me know in the comments if you want me to do any more tips💓♬ Emotional (Instrumental) – BLVKSHP
Here are the steps:
- Look into your lover’s left eye.
- Then down their lips.
- Then to their right eye.
Sophie goes on to say that this trick won’t work with strangers. And you should probably try a casual look while doing it. Don’t want to get all those buggy and weird eyes when you’re pulling it off.
Sophie uploaded a secondary video that better describes the breakdown of this technique. She’s super confident in the move, but many commenters pointed out that it might work for her because of “how gorgeous she is.”
One commenter wrote, “I’d love to see Paul Giamatti try this with someone. SMDH perks are great.”
While it may seem like a really crazy proposition from a random internet influencer, there’s been a lot of research regarding the profound impact that eye contact has on attraction.
BetterHelp writes that while “there’s no secret weapon [in forming/maintaining a relationship] … there is one thing that can make a big difference, and that’s eye contact. Believe it or not, holding someone’s gaze can say a lot about your interest in them.”
The article even shows how deeply ingrained this trait is in our souls through various artistic mediums. How many books have you read where love interest is described as “eye-locking”? Or how many movies that use eye contact between two people you just know will begin? Come on, at this point, it’s science.
