I really like someone, so how do I let him or her know?

People will often ask how they can let someone know that they like them, without having to tell them. Or they will ask for advice on how to tell if someone likes them through signs or signals.

The thing is, while it’s scary to tell someone “I like you” to their face or to ask this person if they like you, asking is the best way to find out for sure how the person feels.

The best thing to do is to talk to the person you like and say something like, “I really like talking with you, and I think we have a lot in common. I like you as more than just a friend, and I was wondering if you’d like to go on a date?” This person may say no, but they may say yes. If they do say no, it’s totally normal to be disappointed, but it’s not OK to get mad or to say mean things to them, about them or to post something negative about them on social media. Accepting rejection with grace and dignity is an important skill to practice if you are interested in dating or being involved in romantic relationships. And although it can be really hard to put yourself out there, chances are the other person will respect you for being open and honest (instead of asking a friend to find out if they like you).
Plus, if you start a relationship with this person, open and honest communication is going to be important, so it’s a good idea to practice good communication right from the beginning.
