Why is that?
Most Helpful Guy
Before the relationship, you are clueless just doing what the world expects you to do. You tread lightly and you overthink every little action and response. You don't want to be perceived as clingy, or careless, too serious, or too carefree. You are basically a mixture of fake personas you have gathered over the years based on what YOU have found to be effective or appropriate.
After declaring the relationship, you begin to explore that human bonding freely and according to your own rules, if you have any. So, to answer your question, I think they probably liked you all along. It is just that they were just brought up believing it is wrong to express that too soon for whatever stupid reason (s) they were given (he'll lose interest - you will be called a slut - he won't believe you - he should admit it first - he might be a serial killer - Oprah said you shouldn't - and a billion other reasons).2
