Do you like someone? Do you want to know if they like you back? Are you searching for ways that might indicate they do before you make a move? Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if someone has feelings for you.
However, the detective work becomes a little easier when you know what signs to look out for. Here’s how to tell if someone likes you…
Body Language tells you a lot about a person including whether or not they have a crush on you. Do the two of you engage in frequent mutual eye contact? Do they smile a lot when they are around you? Do they lightly tap you on the arm playfully from time to time? If so, they may be interested in you. What about mirroring? Do they mimic your body language? This is often a sign that the person likes you. Experiment by consciously changing your body position every few minutes and watch to see if they follow suit.
They emphasise the similarities between the two of you
Often when a person likes you, they will try to look for something you both have in common. They wish to point out the interests and hobbies you share in order to show you just how compatible the two of you are. Compliments from them are regular and they try to find out as much as they can about you. They constantly ask you questions about yourself as a way to learn more about you. If you recognise these signals from your interactions with this person then my friend, you are in luck. You just may be their crush!
Are they nervous around you?
Have you noticed them blushing when they are in your presence? Or maybe they fidget an awful lot when they are around you. Both these signals mean that this person gets nervous when they are in your company. This is a feeling many people experience when they are around their crush and is completely normal. If you notice a certain someone becomes nervous when they are with you, then this may be a sign that they are attracted to you.
They find any excuse to talk to you
Do they ask to borrow your pen despite the fact they have a pencil case full of them sitting on their desk? If this is the case, then chances are they are looking for an excuse to talk to you. Sometimes when a person is interested in you, they will go to great lengths to get closer to you. Whether that is forming a study group just to ask you to join or if they go out of their way to sit near you at lunchtime, these are clear indications that this person has feelings for you. The more obvious and frequent these types of actions become, the higher the probability that they are interested in you.
Of course, the best way to find out if someone likes you is to ask them. This way you will not have to keep wondering whether they do or don’t. Go for it. As Nora Roberts says, ‘If you don’t ask, the answer is always no’.
It takes courage to confess your feelings to someone and even if the answer is not what you wanted, well good on you for taking your shot. However, there will always be a chance that this person does like you back and the best way to find this out is to check. Think of the possibilities that may unfold if the two of you do end up becoming more than friends.
You can do this. To quote The Hunger Games ‘May the odds be ever in your favour’!
Do you feel like you’d be able to tell if someone liked you better now? Or have you been dropping these hints to your crush yourself?
