Sometimes, it’s hard to tell if someone likes you, especially in these days where genuine love is so scarce due to pretenses from people with ulterior motives.
You might probably have seen movies about love or followed your favourite celebs on social media which has given you a certain perspective about how to know someone loves you. Late night dates, showering you with gifts, taking you to your dream vacations, etc are some of the known ones. However, love doesn’t have to be stereotyped.
The truth is, a person doesn’t need to say they love you to convince you they truly do. True, professing of love plays a peculiar role in a relationship, however, when someone loves you, their actions speak louder than their words. They show their love through their actions even before saying it to your face that they love you.
To be fair to some people, they just aren’t the best at expressing themselves verbally, which is why you might look out for other ways to tell if someone has deeper feelings for you, including physical cues.
There are signs that show someone is very interested in you.
Here are 8 signs that someone likes you:
When someone is beginning to want to spend more time with you, it’s one of the most obvious signs that they’re in love with you. 5 hours with you is like 5 minutes to them and you might hear them moan about how spending time with you is the best time of their lives. They might actively seek your attention in any way, be it evening conversations, weekend dates or even visiting you any time they want.
In their eyes, it doesn’t matter what your actions are so long as you’re in the same place. In the end, if you don’t see enough of your love, you’ll be able to tell they’re in love with you.
Here’s one of the most important signs of true love, as they build on spending time with you. When someone is truly in love with you, they will feel the need to see you, and you will notice it.
You won’t have to wait one month before seeing them — unless you are in a long-distance relationship, that’s an entirely different story.
Your partner may not say it directly, but if they can comfortably talk about the future with you without getting weird, it’s a sign they do love you — or at the very least are starting to get there.
Even if they’re more reserved, they’ll surely be the same way with their close friends and family. If you hear someone speaking positive things about you, even when you’re not around, it’s a sign that they really care about you.
When someone is in love with you, the attention and affection they show you is usually beyond normal level. They go the extra mile to show you they care and make sure you are very happy.
If your partner is showing you more special care and attention than usual, regardless of their language, their love toward you is growing. For these reasons, it’s known as ”love” or “love language!”
A partner who respects you will show that they value you and your time together. They’ll also support your choices, even when they don’t agree.
Other signs of respect to look for include: honesty, clear, prompt communication, polite and considerate language, even during arguments, no pressure to set your boundaries aside
They prioritize you
You can be sure they truly care about you and prioritize your feelings when you observe that they spend longer with you rather than with their friends, altering their schedule to allow more time to spend with you or changing plans at the last minute to provide support whenever you require you. As you would with those, you love? Yes, you know.
In prioritizing you, they want the best for you and will seek your satisfaction above theirs. In fact, someone who truly loves you will let you go once it becomes clear your relationship has run its course.
They Remember the Important Details even if you have forgotten
When someone is in love with you, they try to impress you and make you happy. One of these ways is remembering important things you tell them. These can be dates that mean a lot to you, conversations you’ve had about your family, the first song that played on the radio when you drove in the car together, or where every scar is on your body.
It’s easier for someone to remember the details when they’re interested in you. So when someone remembers everything from the little things to the big, it very well might mean they love you.
While they may not hear or remember every word you say, they’ll generally have a pretty solid awareness of the things that matter most: your likes and dislikes, hopes and fears, friendships and family relationships, and so on.
They Want You to Meet Their Loved Ones
When you are in love with someone, it is only natural for you to want the world to know you two are together. In particular, you want your loved ones to know it, and you can’t wait to introduce them to your significant other. In fact, most of your conversations with your loved ones will be about him/her and why they should meet.
Someone who doesn’t care won’t feel the need to introduce you to their family or best friends. They won’t feel the need to talk to them about you. In fact, they might even avoid it.
If their friends and family know you two are together, your partner is clearly very proud to have you in their life. Even if they haven’t said, ‘I love you’ yet, wanting to show you off and to get approval from parents (no matter how old a partner is), means that they care for you enough to see a future with you.
But keep in mind, everyone is different- not everyone is going to be super public with their lives on social media. As long as they’re not keeping you a secret, your relationship is probably heading in the right direction.
