Why do we mistakenly think that some people like us

This why you are confused

How many times you thought that someone likes you then ended up discovering that they don't?
How many times you thought that someone is attracted to you then you realized that it was all in your head?

I get so many questions from confused people who don't really know whether someone truly likes them or not. So i decided to write an article to help people understand how to use body language correctly to know for sure whether someone likes them or not.

This is not an article about attraction signals because i already covered them thoroughly here Body Language's Love Signals and other signals and here Body language of attraction.

In this article i will tell you how to read body language properly, avoid the mistakes people make and know for sure whether someone likes you or not.

Why a single attraction sign is not enough

I often get questions from people who tell me that someone likes them because they keep looking at them often. Certainly eye contact can tell a lot about a person's level of interest in you. In my article How can you tell if someone likes you by their eyes i said that there are various signs related to the eyes that can show that someone likes you.

However there is a big problem with depending on eye contact or any other sign on it's own to make conclusions.

The same sign can happen for so many different reasons that are not really connected to attraction. A person can look at you often because they like you and they can also look often because there is no other place to look at. If you work with someone in the same hall then there is a very high possibility that you will come in their line of sight very often.

The same goes for all other attraction signs that are not stand alone signs such as eye contact, smiling and coming close to you. If you tried to depend on one of those signs alone then the possibility of understanding people incorrectly will be very high. See also How to know if someone likes you

How to tell for sure if someone likes you

In order to know for sure whether someone likes you or not you will have to look for more than one sign that point to the same conclusion. If a person looks at you often, smiles whenever they see you, keeps asking you questions and keeps initiating contact then you can tell for sure that there is a very high possibility of attraction.

Once you put many signs together so that you can connect the dots and form a straight line you can make sure that you read the other person correctly. See How to analyze someone's personality & How to understand body language better.

The problem with depending on one dot to understand people is that this dot can be connected to so many different lines that point to different things. A person can smile at you because they are nice, polite or because they were taught to smile to others.

But if that same person smiles whenever you talk or smiles whenever you talk about your self then you can start assuming that something is going on.

The problem with the human perception is that once you believe in something, good be it or bad, you will find yourself collecting all the evidence that can support it. Shortly you will end up believing in the own scenario you created in your head then you might get very disappointed when you discover otherwise.

People who don't understand how others perceive physical attraction usually develop the imagined ugliness disorder.

The book The psychology of physical attraction explained was released by 2knowmyself. This book won't just help you understand how the attraction process happens but it will also help you discover how attractive you are and will assist you in getting over the imagined ugliness problem.
