3 Ways to Know If Your Best Friend Loves You

Some friendships are so intense that they can turn into passion. This is natural when there is a lot of affinity and admiration between two people and you will be left wondering if this is really happening or if it is a mistake on your part. There are behaviors and attitudes that clearly indicate that there is a different feeling coming up and they will help you figure out whether it's dating or friendship.


Method 1 of 3: Observing behavioral changes

Step 1. Notice how your friend treats you

Notice if he's different with you from the rest of your friends when they're in a class. Perhaps he is more affectionate and considerate or makes more personal comments about his relationships.

  • He probably doesn't feel anything but friendship if he acts normally with you and other friends, but notice if he treats you like he used to treat ex-boyfriends. This could be a sign of romantic interest.
  • This is a good yardstick for knowing if he's being friendly or if he's in love.

Step 2. Pay attention when spending time alone

He's your best friend, nothing more natural than spending time together. However, see if the things they do have any romantic connotations. For example, do you go to a movie and then go out to dinner? When that happens, is it just the two of you?

  • Another clue is that you spend a lot of time together. It's natural to want to spend a lot of time together when there's a romantic interest; if he notices that they meet and talk more often than before, the intimacy generated can give the impression that they are on dates and this can also mean that he is in love.
  • If he's been saying that he likes being alone with you a lot, keep an eye out. He might be trying to let you know that he wants more than just your friendship.

Step 3. Listen to the way he talks

Notice how he talks about you to others and how he acts when they talk. Everyone has a special flirtatious tone of voice. Also, see if he stutters, gets nervous, flushes, and other signs of passion.

  • Does he laugh at your jokes effusively, more often? Doing so could be a sign that he's in the mood to be with you.
  • There is no drama between friends. With that in mind, if he is embarrassed and embarrassed about some matters, he may see you as more than a friend. For example, if he's introspective when you talk about dating and other personal experiences, maybe it's because he likes you.

Step 4. Listen to what he says

It is possible that he is trying to convey his feelings subtly, such as talking about romantic things, asking if you are interested in someone, etc. Another way to do this would be to deepen intimacy through personal issues such as dreams, goals and desires.

He probably already pays a lot of attention when you talk just because he's your best friend, but he may recall commonly overlooked details (such as the date of an exam, interview, or doctor's appointment) and use them to wish you good luck or even to find out What Day is Today

Step 5. Look for signs of flirting

Some people are naturally flirtatious, but if your friend isn't, he may flirt to gauge your attraction. You'll have to interpret what his manners reveal, but getting to know him in advance is half the battle. Note if he:

  • Praise him often.
  • I smile and look into your eyes when they are talking.
  • Touch your hair or your face while chatting.
  • I laughed at all your jokes, even the worst ones.
  • Try to tease him harmlessly.

Step 6. Notice how it looks

See if he's been grooming himself more than usual when you meet, like choosing clothes you like, wearing better quality pieces, makeup or doing more elaborate hairstyles, etc. Your friend will strive to look his best if he's in love with you.

If you notice that he has been spending more time with you than usual and that he is getting better at seeing you, the chances of being in love are great

Step 1. Examine body language

There are some typical gestures and gestures when someone has romantic interests. Some are more frequent than others, but some examples you can look for are:

  • Keep eye contact and watch you.
  • Unconsciously smile when they are talking.
  • Try to stay close to you and make subtle physical contact.
  • Keep your feet facing you when you are together.
  • Imitate your body language unconsciously during interactions.
  • Touching your hair and your face as you speak.

Step 2. Notice the physical contacts

It is common for a person who is attracted to touch the desired person with some frequency; you are best friends, maybe you go from sporadic hugs to daily.

In addition to frequency, the level of touches can change and he will start stroking your shoulder instead of throwing a brat's punch. Maybe he'll hug you more or lean his knees on yours

Step 3. Repair the beginning of the contacts

Physical touch is natural and healthy among friends, but if it happens regularly and with more affection involved, it's a sure sign that your friend has fallen for you.

  • For example, he may “unintentionally” bump into you when you are close to each other, perhaps because he is too anxious and insecure to initiate a hug. This shows he wants to get even closer.
  • You have every right to tell him to stop if you're not comfortable with the amount or intensity of physical contact, but be gentle – he's your best friend after all.

Method 3 of 3: Assessing the Relationship

Step 1. Reflect on how you feel

Ask yourself if you're in the mood too and would like to start a relationship with your friend. After all, you need to know what you want to know how to interact and react to his behavior.

  • The signs are there, everything indicates that you two are in the mood. Be honest about it and, if you like, flirt back. Give the same signals as he or ask if he is seeing someone.
  • Say something like "You know So-and-so, I like you a lot, I think even more than a mutual friend."

Step 2. Pay attention to your own attitudes

It is possible that you are flirting with your friend by accident. Gestures like touching him on the arm, being affectionate, and opening up about his emotions can have a romantic connotation, and if you're not in love with him, you'd better stop with those things.

However, if the interest is real, keep flirting and see where they go

Step 3. Talk to your friends

It's possible that talking to them will help you unravel this mystery if you're still confused. Maybe they know something you don't, like if your best friend has someone in sight and if that someone is you.

  • It's important to do this right, to avoid confusion and not look like you're gossiping behind his back. Talk only to people you trust and who may have an interesting point of view on the issue.
  • Another option is to talk to a friend of his. Ask casually, something like “Yeah, I heard that Beltrano is no longer with So-and-so. Is he seeing someone?”.

Step 4. Talk to your friend

The only way to be sure if he likes you or not is to speak directly. Of course, this approach has its own risks, as he doesn't want to ruin the friendship.

  • Seriously think about what you want from this relationship before asking anything, and if you find you want nothing more than friendship, let the question go. His feelings will certainly pass by themselves if you don't open up. On the other hand, if he takes the initiative to openly flirt with you, use the opportunity to clear things up.
  • If you decide to move forward with romance, say something like "I could be wrong, but I get the feeling that we're different with each other and that our relationship has changed a little." So he will also open up to you.

Step 5. Be tactful

Maybe your friend says “What? No, imagine! Where did you get that from?" and, in that case, the best thing is to let it go. Say something quiet like “No, it's okay, I was just curious. But it's okay, it doesn't."

It is even possible that he says these things out of shyness; maybe he's too insecure to admit he likes you. Be patient and wait until he has more courage to speak. Don't pressure him, empathize with his situation

Step 6. Emphasize your esteem

Tell him that your friendship is very important and that you care about him as a person. Maybe you guys stay together, maybe you stay friends, what matters is to show that this is a special relationship and that you don't want to lose it.

  • There is a possibility that he is in love, but you are not. In that case, it will be necessary for them to go away for a while, so that he can overcome these feelings and get on with his life. This situation is quite painful, but it's the best thing to do.
  • Say something like “Ciclano, your friendship means the world to me. You are my best friend and I am very happy to be a part of my life. I'm not in love with you, but I sincerely hope that we can remain best friends.”


  • Be yourself. Your friend is passionate about your essence, so don't behave differently when you're together.
  • Whatever happens, stay calm and confident. Even if you don't have a romantic interest, it's important to know how he feels, especially if you notice that his posture has changed. Show him that you won't blame him for being in love and tell him he can open up without fear.
  • Make an effort to talk to him in person, not just on Facebook or WhatsApp.
  • Be yourself and enjoy your friendship!
