One of the best pieces of dating advice I ever read is this. When someone likes you, if they are interested in you, you will know. It will be clear. You won’t have any doubt. If you have any confusion about it, or are not sure, they are not that interested. There is also no one busier than someone that is not that interested, they will have other priorities. If you were a priority they would want to see you, they would call, they would text. Words and actions match when someone is interested, if they say something yet act in a way to contradict what they have said, that is a red flag. They are inconsistent, likely less interested than you are and you should consider pulling back or walking away. If they like you, you’ll know. If they don’t you’ll be confused.
