For example, "You induce/promote/inspire curiosity in me." "I am very curious in you." (Sounds awful)

  • Welcome to EL&U. Have you consulted a thesaurus? You'll also have to explain why I am curious about you sounds "awful." I encourage you to take the site tour and review the help center for a better understanding of how this site operates.

    @choster I did and intrigue was not listed anywhere, although I believe that is the term I was looking for. "I am curious about you." works, I was looking for an alternate form. "I am curious in you." was what I thought sounds bad. Can you suggest what I need to change so the post is not on hold?
