In what ways do you show you're interested in a person?

Recommended Posts

Oh, I am not the best at answering this because I have difficulty expressing my emotions and feelings. I am more action oriented when trying to express that I care. I'll do things for someone that I wouldn't do for anyone else. I'll be considerate and try to take care of things for the other person without them asking. I'll take care to set aside special time to spend with them. I might leave them a cute note or som*thing. 

I will flirt, but in a different way than I do when I'm just having fun. I'm not sure how to describe the difference between my types of flirtation, but there is one, lol. As cliche as it might sound, they will know I'm serious when I let them meet my parents and my son. My family is my everything, so it means a lot when I let someone into that inner circle.

Idk I don't show anyone I like that I like them other than being extra nice lol. I feel like I'm an awkward/shy person around others so I never flirt with anyone anyway. I just keep my feelings hidden.

I want to hear every story, every favorite anything, their goals, switch back and forth songs. I want to know so much about this person, unlike other people I spend time with, it's just different...I start asking deeper things, with the occasional joke, even if it bombs 🙄. I want to make them happy... I'll leave hints, like songs, or leaving behind som*thing I'm wearing, like a bracelet 🤭 (yes I've done it..), I pay a lot of attention to small things, so I gift them som*thing they'd find happy nostalgia in. Now with that being said, I do overthink my feelings (some people can relate, maybe) & that's when they usually take over, because they start to realize(that's how I know its mutual as well, which is strange - yeah I get it, but it works...😬). 

Yes I'm a professional of unrequited, or failed attempts, and perhaps my m*thods need some alterations..

I invest my time on them.

I give them my best advices.

I try to help them achieve their goals .

Loyalty, honesty just comes natural to me when I'm interested.

I make jokes , you see me sparkling, you see that indescribable happiness.

I will Doo anyyythiing for loovee.

Umm I give too much, way too much. I am a romantic brat, we should say.

But if you don't treat me correctly or you end up giving me headaches I'm dumping you for sure. Sooner or later the love would be gone, lallala why don't we stay young?

Only if I have feelings, if not I don't play games I say it straight . With friendships, duties, romances ...

i like to do overly grand gestures like paragraphs of affirmation, expensive gifts, suggesting i take care of them (ex: "i wish i could bring you a soup/ill tuck you in ^-^ goodnight") and i constantly ask questions about them. i wanna know everything about this perfect person! i just do everything to make em feel loved even if they don't realize it's in a romantic way lol. however im in a committed relationship now and still do the same things, so im sure he knows it's because im so madly in love haha!

Oh man, I have never been good at flirting so starting as friends is always better. When I first start getting the feels, I get a bit scared because I want to make sure the other person feels the same before I even try to take it to that level. Fear of rejection is real!

      How do you know if you're in love? What even is love? Is it different than lust? Hopefully this clears things up.

      What do you do for “self care”? I’m very bad at self care, and I’d love to hear what y’all do. 

      I’m getting my nails done tomorrow to see if that’s self care for me.

      If you had a person interested in you, but you have no interest in them,  but they offer you money, gifts, whatever, would you take them? 
      List your pros/cons, why or why nots.

      There are so many different things that contribute to how we feel after a breakup, friendship, or any significant relationship in your life ends.
      Of course, I'm sure we have all heard of the 'Stages of Grief' but if you haven't, it goes like this:
      Denial: You essentially can’t believe it’s over, don't understand the reason given, or the simple fact that your ex doesn’t want or love you.
      Anger: Anger and resentment toward your ex. *NO ACTUAL RETALIATION 
      Bargaining: Trying to get them back, even if it's just in your head.
      Guilt: This just means you feel like utter garbage about your behavior - but this can be tied to not feeling good enough.
      I had been in a long-term relationship right before my last short-lived relationship, and we lived together and  we were heading towards marriage. Long story short, we were together 4 years, and we broke up.
      I got my own apartment, and I had never had to do that before. After 10 months of not seeing anybody, speaking with anybody in that manner, and effectively started to feel good about myself, started loving myself, and felt ready for something new.
      Since I had been alone for quite some time, I thought it was the right time to finally give somebody a shot and see where things go.
      Yesterday, or the day before there was a post on this forum about what we all think about the military. I took it upon myself to write about how the USMC may have affected my newly-ex-boyfriend (he had dumped me that morning), I wanted to take the time to write this post to the forum to formally apologize for the comment I made regarding my now ex-boyfriend. I have the most incredible regret and remorse and I feel that I have wronged all of you, because I quite possibly could have put a bad taste in your mouth involving me. I haven't been on the internet in a few years, at least not many times at all, because my last relationship before this, I didn't go on at all. I viewed my post as more of a "venting" moment, than an opinion moment. And I ended up bashing somebody in the process, which is not me, and never will be me.
      There is no excuse, I take full responsibility for my actions and I am sincerely sorry.
      I wish I could take it back, I wish I had been more thoughtful.
      I am being straight-forward with everything. I still have massive feelings for my ex, he exhibits unstable behavior, and broke/shattered my heart into pieces, but I'd never want to do any harm to him. When I wrote that post, I also was in the middle of begging for him back because I couldn't believe he would leave me the day prior to leaving for deployment, after all the money I put into care packages, money for flights, the list goes on......
      I want to make it as clear as possible that I am sorry for the post I made, and it wasn't about retaliation on a public platform, it's just the CHANGE of personality I have noticed since he has entered the military vs. when we went to high school together. 
      He is a very good person, with an amazing heart, with issues, as we all suffer from different things day-to-day.
      I recognize the fault in the post I made, and how you could construe it that way. Just like I wouldn't write such a thing on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr, or Twitter. Once again, I apologize.
      But it is not right for me to ever BASH anybody, whether any of you know him personally or not, because I am still struggling with my feelings within, and when I posted that, I was in the middle of begging for him back, or even a response before he left for 7 months.
      There is exponentially more to this story, but it wouldn't be right to air it all out. I just needed this off my chest. I am not better than my ex, in fact, I begged and pleaded for him until the moment he left.
      I'm so sorry guys.
      You will never see content like that out of me again. Cross my heart...
      Xox, me.
