What does it mean?
Does he/she like me?
You constantly play over and over in your mind the last interaction you both had.
Your unease begins to grow because you don’t know whether you should try to
pursue things with this person or not.
“Does he/she like me?”
You ask yourself day in and day out.
All of the signs seem to be there.
But you’re left with uncertainty.
“What do I do now?”
You ask yourself.
Your world with this person has come to a halt.
Things don’t move forward and continue to stand still.
Do not look for signs
I know it’s inevitable!
This is what makes you think the person has a liking towards you in the first place.
Sadly but truly, some people send mixed signals
You are either :
A) Reading too deeply into the signs.
B) Misreading the signs.
C) Reading the signs correctly.
Reading too deeply into the signs.
(Below are some of the signs that someone who has interest in you may show).
- Makes eye contact with you and smiles.
- Gently brushes your hair back with their hands.
- Gives you compliments on a regular basis.
- Goes out of their way to greet you at all times.
- Always seems to notice when you walk into a room.
- Constantly looks at you when you are looking away
- Gives you a kiss on the cheek or hugs.
...The list goes on.
Simple body language and words has got you thinking so much more.
You very well could be right!
But at the same time,
This may be nothing beyond than what it presents itself to be.
Just because someone shows indication that he/she may like you
doesn’t mean you should automatically assume there are feelings there.
Misreading the signals.
Below I list some possibilities:
1) If you really like this guy/gal you hope that you aren’t reading him/her wrong.
Some people are flirty by nature and generally treat people in a very friendly way.
Although this person very well may like you, there is a huge possibility that this person does not.
The way this person treats you could be a personality trait.
This guy/gal is pretty much "flirtatous" with everyone.
2) Perhaps you have such extreme liking towards this person that this makes you hope those signs mean something.
The reality of it is, those signs mean nothing at all.
This person is just being playful.
He/she enjoys your attention and sees this as harmless.
Although not in every case, this person
may make you believe something more will blossom out of your "relationship".
The person's lack of effort (initiating contact/hang out) leads you to ask the above question:
"What does it mean?"
"Does he/she like me?"
I call this “mixed signals”.
If someone really liked you they wouldn’t constantly have excuses not to be with you.
Reading the signs correctly.
This is the option we pretty much all hope for when in this situation.
It's obvious (in your mind) that this person likes you.
Getting things going would be a lot easier in this case.
The hardest part (fear of rejection) would be out of the way because
you know the feelings are mutual.
-Wipes sweat off of forehead-
No one likes that pressure.
So, what really is the answer to the overall question in this article?
What does it mean?
Does he/she like me?
With even the most obvious signs out there,
You never really know whether someone is interested in you or not unless
you take a leap.
- Continue to further become better acquainted with this guy or girl.
- Exchange numbers with this guy/gal (eventually)
- Confess to him/her your feelings and your intent (when you are at comfort level)
How this person responds will immediately tell you!
Signs are often misread or interpreted the wrong way.
To clear this confusion up, you have to be direct in your approach.
I know some of us like to sit back and show subtle hints towards this other person.
But that will not guarantee you getting to the next level with him/her.
One of the main reasons why men and women don't understand each other is because we often misread the opposite sex.
So go for it!
Put your army jacket and gladiator boots on!
You are ready for any possible outcome!
Instead of sitting down and asking yourself the same question(s) over and over, what do you have to lose?
You only have time to gain that could have been wasted on further contemplating.
