It could be a classmate or it could be you belong to the same club or organization. It is inevitable to be interested to someone. Although interest could happen at an instant, for example, you spot this intriguing person at a party, the situations for this article would be limited to people you have established contact with.
Showing interest takes many forms. It depends on one’s personality and how that person goes through with his ‘style’. Some go through the persistent route, always making sure that they are within eye range of the person they fancy. The pursuer finds a way to have her object of desire be with her. Either that or she tags along with him.
In other words, keep in touch. Be wherever the other person in a non-stalker kind of way. And there are also other ways in keeping touch other than being there. Like communicating.
Communication is important. In the same line with being persistent, look for opportunities to talk or converse. Another way to show interest is to have light body contact. A simple brush here, a light shove or push there, a slight tap, as long it does not go beyond personal boundaries, is all right.
A form of non-verbal communication is how you look at the person. It is usually a longing and dreamy stare. He gives her this look that conveys that she is special. There is a twinkle in the eye, a twist in the lips denoting pleasure and interest. Then there is the shy passing glance when get caught ogling.
Doing simple things, such as remembering some details that were mentioned in passing or giving simple presents. It does not have to be expensive or fancy. Just show that the gift is special. Remember, it is the thought that counts.
Another surefire hint is if they make time and effort to get to know the other person. Give extra attention to the other person like giving her a call or sending him a short message. The simplest anyone could do is to offer carry stuff for the other person. It does not have to be grand, but as long as some effort is put into it, it would be appreciated by the recipient.
At the other end of the spectrum is call attention. If he makes the effort of fixing himself up even if you are just going to watch a movie, that is a plus point.
To know if someone is showing interest on you, being curious with the other person’s likes is a good sign. She is reciprocating your actions. At the same vein, she is opening up to you by sharing her thoughts or his possessions. Him talking to your friends to make an effort to get to know you more falls under this category.
To summarize, the purpose of doing all of these is to create familiarity and understanding and the eternal hope that things do go well.
