Likes me, likes me not?

Flower fortune. A seed of wonder or a petal of false hopes?

Well, for starters, you don't really know for sure. That's the uncertainty of human attraction, you simply don't know if the feelings will be returned. Everyone is different, that's the beauty, and point, of being one of a kind. So how can you really tell if someone's in to you? The first thing that comes to my mind is attention. How much attention and effort is he/she giving you and along with it, learn to separate usual behaviour from that little extra. If someone is giving you a little more, or a whole ocean, of attention than usual, there's a certain guarantee that there's something going on in his/her head, wether it be good or bad. Chances are, there's a passion in his/her heart that awaits to be released or a scheme to be put into action.

There's a reason, or two, why no one is going around and spilling their emotional bagage. Humiliation and Rejection. It's one thing to tell someone in secret that you have feelings for this person. There's entirely another when there's a bunch of people all around. Like the phrase, "two's company, three's a crowd." (A third person spoils the ideal combination of a couple).

The opposite of humiliation is pride, and everyone has it. It is due to your pride that you take emotional matterns into private spaces. To minimize the damage that could come with your intentions. Rejection. The downside of your upside.
It is a little bit easier to deal with a rejection when there's only two people knowing about it, you and that special one, until the words get out. Maybe it isn't so bad if the words got out but its not exacly healing either to hear it day after day. To do it in a crowd takes guts but also a form of suicide. A scenario would be that everyone laughs at you, but then, are they laughing at you directly or that you're being sincere?
Either way, taking a blow to the heart feels more than a physical wound and you need time to recover. The best part is that it's not forever even though the moment feels that way.

If you told someone how you felt about him/her, then you've won the first round. Congratulate yourself, there are people out there who don't dare to this kind of thing. Instead they're stuck in something else. Regret. Thinking how things would be if they made a different choice than what actually happened.

Love is a risk, take a chance and dare.
