Everyone at TastyMoments is dreaming-up romantic dinner ideas to spoil a special someone special in their lives. That got us thinking, how do we know when someone loves us or likes us? There is no way we can actually tell what someone else is thinking. But behavioural scientists have been studying ‘invisible’ signs for years. They agree that these signals are pretty accurate indicators that someone really likes you – whether as a friend or maybe even a potential romantic partner. So, whip out the Ristorante Pizza and get reading.
If someone focusses on your face, it is a sure sign that they are (in the words of Alain de Botton) ‘interested in your happiness’. That is his definition of love. The TastyMoments team agrees that a gaze speaks volumes! It has been proven that men who are not really into a woman tend to look down at her legs and feet, while really interested men will look at her face and chest more of the time.
An invitation to their home
Nobody is going to ask you over if they don’t trust you. One’s home is one’s castle – a living expression of who you are, what you like and how you prefer to live. Being asked to visit is an invitation to get you to know who they are. And if you like what you see, be sure to return the invitation sometime soon. Better yet – why not ask your new friend to join you for a delicious or even romantic meal over some thin and crispy pizza?
Don't tell me you're funny; make me laugh
We cannot say it enough: people who can play together stay together. When a person jokes around or has the confidence to tell hilarious stories at their own expense, you can be sure that they want to feel close to you. And you’ll soon be able to know whether they like you if they are amused by your own tales.
Acts of service
When someone offers to help, whether that be with homework or fetching your car from the mechanic, it means they want to make life easier for you. People only help if they really value the friendship. So, why not be the one to make the first gesture?
They notice the new haircut, nail colour or what toppings you like
If they mention your preferences or notice your choices, it is a way of showing that they approve. And if they bring the pizza next time, it is a sure-fire sign that they are trying to impress you. Another tell-tale way to know they like you – a lot – is if they use your name often in conversation. They recognise and appreciate you for who you are. So, if you like the person back, remember to say their names when you tell your stories.
There you have it. It doesn’t have to be a bunch of bought flowers. Sometimes a mere light touch, a rose picked on the sidewalk or an extra sandwich made especially for you says much more about friendship and love.
