Opening up about your feelings can make you feel vulnerable and not to mention nervous. Most of the time it’s because we fear rejection. But as they say, no pain, no gain…right? Well according to Ideal Introductions Matchmaker and Relationship Expert Linda Prescott, the best way to tell someone you like them is to just come clean. Nothing is sexier than confidence. But if you need a little help making the move, here are wonderful ways to tell someone you like them.
#1 Tell someone you like them… with words
Often, we can’t find the words to tell someone we like them. Where do we start? What do we say? Here’s a tip, before you get real honest about your feelings, you can always set the conversation up in a way that will give your love interest clues about what’s on your mind. Try something like this: “I’m going to tell you something that may surprise you. Don’t feel like you have to say anything, okay. I just want to tell you how I feel.”
This way, you can give them a heads up on where the conversation is going, be honest about what’s been on your mind and at the same time assure them that they are not going to be pressured for an answer. And then you can say something like, “I really like you,” or “I really care about you,” or even “I would love to take you on a date.” Now that you’ve said it, let’s see how the conversation goes. No matter what happens, remember, you’ve said what you wanted to say.
#2 Tell someone you like them… with your eyes
Actions speak louder than words. And in this case, it’s absolutely true. You can actually tell someone you like them without saying anything. You’ll need to pick the right mood and place for this. It could be a quiet breakfast together, a stroll in the park or even as you are parting ways. Hold your gaze for longer than usual. Not in a creepy way but in a meaningful and thoughtful way. If they are comfortable with you holding their hand, maintain your gaze with their hand in yours. It’s definitely a more intense way to tell someone you like them but it has worked for so many people. Once you have done that, they might ask you, “Why?” Now here’s your opening to say how you feel. If you like, use tip #1 for a smooth sailing reveal.
Whatever you do, be confident, be honest and be positive. Good luck!
