What would you think if someone answers "maybe" to a "who do you like?" question?

If you ask someone, "Do you like me?" or "Do you like anyone?" or something similar, and they answer, "Maybe." What would you think that means? Do you think that they do and it's a yes but just don't want to admit it? Or that they just don't want to tell you? Or that it's a no but just don't say so?


Because it's kind of like if it's no for sure, then you would say no. And if it's yes, sometimes people lie about it and say no and sometimes they say yes honestly, but then what about maybe?

Or if they answer by saying, "Is that important?" Or "Why is that important?" or something?
