How do you know if someone likes you more than just a friend?
Sometimes the strongest of relationships can blossom out of innocent friendships. On the other hand, many people often find themselves in the uncomfortable position of being in the “friendzone,” struggling or unable to express their true feelings for someone who thinks of them as merely a friend. Here are 24 telltale signs that someone might have more than strictly platonic feelings for one of their friends.
1. They tell you that they want something more.
This is the most obvious of the signs. When someone comes right out and admits their true feelings to the person who is their friend, it cannot be interpreted any other way than as as an act of affection that goes beyond normal behavior between friends. A friend who tells the other that they want their friendship to progress into a deeper relationship undoubtedly holds that person in very high esteem. When someone begins to view a friend in a more intimate light, they start to allow that person to have a greater influence on their life, and as this influence grows stronger, so does the need to communicate their wish for that person to play a greater role in their everyday life.
