How to Tell Someone You Like Them

Telling someone you like them can be nerve-wracking. But it’s important to take the risk and let them know how you feel.

Most relationships and romances start out as friendships. So, try to become her friend before you tell her you like her. This will help you build trust and a sense of closeness.

1. You have a good sense of humor.

Humor helps people put stressful experiences into perspective, preventing them from suppressing the immune system and making them vulnerable to disease. Laughing also activates a number of different organs and can even help improve your health by stimulating your blood circulation and clearing out your lungs.

Having a good sense of humor can be difficult to develop because everyone has different backgrounds and preferences. Some jokes may offend others while amusing some.

2. You are a good listener.

Imagine how powerful it feels to know that you have someone’s full attention when talking. That is the mark of a good listener.

Good listeners ask follow-up questions to show that they are interested in the speaker’s story. They also avoid interrupting or talking over the speaker. They may also use a summary near the end of the conversation to highlight important moments or illuminate any outstanding issues.

3. You are honest.

People who are honest wear their hearts on their sleeves. They are not afraid to tell it like it is and they don’t try to be someone else to please others. If you are an honest person, it is a trait that many admire. You should continue to be so even if it means being vulnerable sometimes. It will always be worth it.

4. You are kind.

People who are kind are often happy to share things with others, whether it be their favorite sweater, a recipe for a yummy enchilada or even some career advice. Being kind can also mean simply listening to someone who needs support or giving them a hug. The important thing is to find ways to offer kindness and not take it out on other people.

5. You are intelligent.

You love to ponder deep thoughts and are curious about the world around you. Perhaps you’re good at asking questions that get to the root of an issue or enjoy taking things apart to see how they work. These traits are related to intelligence, which research has linked to adaptability and resilience.

You’re likely also humble, as many intelligent people realize they don’t know everything.

6. You are loyal.

Loyalty is a quality that few people possess and that is something to cherish. She is not one of those girls who sees other men or has a hard time keeping your secret; she is loyal. She may even swear to you that she won’t talk about you to her friends. This is loyalty, my friend. You should be proud of her for this.
