    a quick short question

    Just a quick short question:
    I am attracted to/by him.
    'To' and 'by' are they same in this context, right?
    Thanks again.

    Re: a quick short question

    Hey,

    The correct sentence should be "I'm attracted by her".
    Try to replace "by" by "to" in these sentences and you'll see what i'm saying:
    "I'm surrounded by these guys"
    "I've been punched by a woman" (Not quite sure about this example, I've got to say).
    So no, "to" and "by" are not the same in this context.

    Edit: Woups, actually both of these two can be use. There's a slighlty difference between them, though.
