Does This Mean I Like Him?RelationshipsDoes This Mean I Like Him?<div class="ExternalClass208A291392F9434D8DB8FC4A5A1EA07B"><p>​<span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4" style="">I am a senior in high school. There is a guy in one of my classes, that I think I might have a crush on. He was actually in one of my classes last year as well, but we did not pay attention to one another last year whatsoever. He was treating me just like everyone else in the class, and I was doing the same, until last week. When I came into class, he was already in there and walked up to me. He said, 'you were in my class last year right?"' I was a little taken aback by this, him talking to me out of the blue, but I went with it and said 'yeah!' That was it, we just went to our seats after that. Then when we got put into groups for a discussion, we were assigned the same group. When I arrived at my place in the group he smiled at me and waved. Again, I was puzzled by this but just did the same. During his time to talk in the discussion, he only had eyes for me, not the other members of our group at all. After class was over and throughout the long weekend, I found myself constantly thinking about him. Does this mean I like him, or am I just finding him attractive all of a sudden because he is paying attention to me? I'd like to think that I really do have a crush on him, but I am just unsure. Today in class, I really wanted to say hello to him and possibly talk to him for a little bit, but I didn't really get a chance to. During our teacher's lecture, however, we did make eye contact a few times, as we were both just looking around the room. Even though this only happened 2 or 3 times, every time I could see him looking at me I was happy. Is there a possibility that I do like him, not just the idea of him, and is there a possibility that he could be slightly interested in me? Should I make a move or say anything about it to him? I am just so confused and need help because I do not want to do the wrong thing, like tell him I like him and scare him away. If I do tell him I like him, he might find it a little weird, since we barely know each other after all (I mean we've only been classmates, not friends or anything)... Any suggestions to help guide me in this situation"" Thank you in advance for your help! (Sorry this was long, I like to provide as much detail as possible when I explain things).</span><br></p></div><div class="ExternalClass09A0BD0CA26F470BBCA45F3EAC8C2276"><p style="font-size:11.7px;"> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">Yes, it is good you explained things thoroughly, because it allows for a more complete reply on the end of the Hotline.  Like anyone you first meet, your first impressions can really only be based on what others might have told you about this person, what you personally have experienced with this person in the past, and the current contact both verbally and nonverbally that you are having with this person. </span></p><p style="font-size:11.7px;"> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">Right now he is giving you a positive vibe, so sure that makes you like the attention.  As far as liking him, you probably really don't know him well enough to know if you will like a lot about him, if you share a lot of common interests with him, or if you would enjoy his company.  If you get to know him a little bit better than you can decide if this is someone you would like to hang out with more even outside of school.</span></p><p style="font-size:11.7px;"> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">Some of the best romantic relationships start out as good friendships.  It might help to think of this as a new friendship for starters.  This way you take the pressure off of yourself having to define what it is going on between the two of you.  As you work with him in group or see him more in class or around the school, be sure to extend the greeting first once in a while, ask him how his weekend went, or give him a genuine compliment.  Little things like this show another person that you are interested.  How he responds to you over time will give you a good indication of whether you want to actually vocalize your interest in him or not.</span></p><p style="font-size:11.7px;"> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">Best wishes.</span></p><p style="font-size:11.7px;"> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3 ms-rteThemeForeColor-2-4">Laura, Crisis Counselor</span></p></div>17
