Some people fall in love too easily, or so it seems. For the younger crowd, likes seem to be granted like little gifts without much thought.
When you are on the outside, looking in, it seems all too silly. But what if it is you who is starting to have some feelings?
Then, perhaps it is time to give those feelings a closer look and ask yourself this question – Do I Like Him?
You cannot deny the fact that love can catch you unawares at any time. You don’t need to know the person for several years! Some do swear by love at first sight.
Okay, it was probably more like lust at first sight. Then, it becomes something more as you become more aware of your prospective man’s personality.
Similarly, you should also not ignore those little flutters for someone you have always known. Sometimes, love has always been there. You are just not looking close enough.
Whatever may be going on inside you when you are falling for a guy, it is magic.
So, you want to know if what you are feeling is truly magical or just your senses playing tricks on you.
You don’t need to be a relationship expert. Here are 10 signs that will shed light on your true feelings:
1. His Appearance Doesn’t Matter
Physical attraction can happen a lot more often. Even when you are in a committed relationship, you sometimes still develop an attraction for somebody else.
This is not an attraction that lasts. It is just something that makes you turn around to check the guy out. Then, you go back to the regular schedule of your life, handsome dude forgotten.
This is because finding someone attractive does not necessarily equate to liking that person. If you can imagine wanting to spend time with the person even if he ends up getting disfigured, then you like this person. You may even love him.
Looks do not matter when it comes to liking and loving. You will like the person despite any flaws that you see.
You see, love is not blind. It actually sees more than others. If you like someone, you are willing to dig deeper and see their beauty.
Does it not sound like true love?
2. You Feel at Ease With Him
Have you met someone who feels like you’ve known him all your life? This guy may have just stepped into your life and you already have this tingly feeling.
Comfort and ease go beyond physical attraction. With this guy, you can be yourself. You are afraid to scare him off, but you are also not afraid to lay yourself bare (emotionally, of course!) to him.
This guy gives you a strong feeling that makes you feel like it could go beyond friendship, although thankfully it does not feel as flaky as infatuation.
Of course, this is where you may misconstrue it for friendship. So, read on and dig deeper.
3. You Want To Find Out More About Him
It is not enough that this guy is attractive. You want to know more about him. It seems that you cannot get enough of him.
What counts as great info about this guy? Well, you would want to know all the details. This is not a guy you want to admire from afar. This is a guy that you want to have a relationship with.
So, no, you are not interested in what car he drives or how much he earns. Those are superficial stuff. You want to know what makes them tick. You may even want to know random stuff like his favorite color or the movie that made him cry.
At that time you are scouring for info from his friends, you may not know it yet. As soon as you stop to think, you may suddenly identify your true feelings.
4. Clues from Your Past Provide with You Insight
Sometimes, you need to analyze not just the man you are interested in, but also yourself. What is it about you that makes you hesitate?
Surely, you can just declare, “I like this guy.”
Of course, we understand that it is not that easy. You may even need a friend to view the situation from afar to get it.
Hopefully, this article will help you find the answer as you Google more answers to “Do I like him?”
Do I like him because he reminds me of somebody else?
Do I like him because I am on the rebound?
Do I like him because somebody said so?
Are you letting all these distractions confuse you? It is normal to hesitate. You cannot be blamed for questioning yourself as to whether you want a romantic relationship with this guy.
Yeah, you have probably been burned before. A past relationship casts a shadow. The thought of an old boyfriend reminds you that some guys are not worth it.
It could be the other way around. You made a guy think that you were into him. It can happen, but you just don’t want to be “that bad person”. You now want to be sure of your romantic feeling.
Then, there is the speed of that attraction. You worry it may just be infatuation or friendship. But the more you think about these all, in circles even, you realize that you care.
If you care enough to create all kinds of scenarios in your head, you may just be a woman in love.
5. You Think About Him a Lot
In relation to the previous point, thinking about this man means you want him more than just a friend. Your pal will not leave you feeling breathless and spending sleepless nights.
If you think about this guy a lot, something is up. Why would you spend so much time if you are looking at him as one woman would a guy friend?
Be careful, though! With all that thinking and sleepless nights, you may end up with breakouts.
6. He Meets Your “Requirements”
Analyze this guy. Surely, you must have developed a liking for a certain type? What may seem like a god to you may not be that attractive to other women.
You like this guy for sure if he ticks all your requirements: someone who can be sweet enough to be a good friend but hot enough to be an object of desire.
He elicits a rough-and-tumble emotion in you.
His personality also matches what you like in guys.
To cut it short, you have found a good romantic interest. There is no question about it. You like this guy.
7. You cannot Focus on the Deal Breakers
Objective people will write a list of the pros and cons. They will examine the deal breakers.
So, you seem to like the guy. Will you be focusing on deal breakers? It is highly possible that you will not. If you have developed real feelings, you may be stuck with your emotions.
You may have to wait when you two are in a long term relationship before these issues start popping up. You will start questioning why you even liked the man in the first place.
But this article is about figuring out if you like the man. If you are willing to ignore flaws in looks (scars, acne, height, etc.) personality (grumpy), and other things another girl may care about (does not have a car), you may be ready to be in a relationship with him.
8. You Pray for a Successful Relationship
Your mind went fast forward before you can control it. He may not even have confessed his feelings yet. Nevertheless, you are already imagining a relationship.
You can already imagine the two of you in a relationship or even having a life together. Your mind determines what a healthy relationship looks like between the two of you.
Why would anyone daydream this way if you are not hoping to establish a love life with this guy?
9. You Feel Bouts of Jealousy
You can confirm that you like the guy if you just cannot imagine him with anyone else.
If you see him with another girl, your metaphorical claws just start coming out.
This can happen even when you try to convince yourself that he is just a good friend. Jealousy suggests that your interest is leaning more towards romance.
10. He Makes You Feel Good About Yourself
You know you have a good thing going when he makes you feel great. Seeing him inspires you. More importantly, he makes you happy, comfortable, and confident about yourself.
Sure, you may be a little blind to the deal breakers. However, even if you are slightly infatuated, you will be turned off by a guy who makes you feel terrible every time you are with him.
So, there you go. Those are ten ways to know if you like this guy you have been thinking about? Hopefully, you have confirmed what you probably knew all along.
