    Default attracted to

    This is a simple question, but I cannot figure out its answer.

    1. I'm attracted to him.(Does it mean I attracts him or he attracts I?)

    Is work-minded synonymous with workaholic in meaning?
    for example: A workaholic is a work-minded person.

    Thank you.

    "I'm attracted to him" means you think he is attractive, probably physically attractive but not necessarily.

    Workaholic is usually negative - someone who works too much.

    Work-minded is positive or neutral - it just means you think about work, or you are thinking about work.
