Not only being smitten with someone makes you feel happy, but it also makes you feel powerful. Alas, none of you are going to turn into a Marvel hero, but many of you will still feel empowered. The truth is, even if you all think and behave differently in general, you all show similar attitudes when it comes time to interacting with that someone you like.
You feel a kind of attraction to that someone, and you may not be able to explain the reason. The attraction that happens in a few seconds after having bumped into that someone for the first time, and this happens even if they don’t match with your “type” in the first place. You don’t know anything about that someone, you don’t even know the sound of their voice, but you like something about their attitude.
You keep looking at that someone—out of the corner of your eye, so you don’t look like a creep—and you can’t help it. You think you are being discreet when actually that someone notices you, because of your perseverance to watch them. That’s when they start looking at you back if there is any mutual attraction.
Each time that someone stands in front of you, something about them catches your attention, something exciting. As a result, you start observing them. You don’t need to follow that someone with your eyes anymore, it sounds like a radar has been set up in your brain. You know where that someone is most of the time.
You wish you could muster the courage to approach that someone and say a word, a sentence, a greeting… anything as long as you say something. But this “anything” idea stops you from acting on it, just because of the fear of being judged and seen as a weirdo. You seem to be shy all of a sudden, even if that trait is not a part of your personality. You can finally hear that someone’s voice and the way they communicate with other people, the way they articulate their thoughts and ideas, and it’s enough for you to get a deeper crush on them.
You start daydreaming about the different interactions you could have with that someone, and what the two of you could say to each other. You even think you’re getting crazy by doing that, but your instinct tells you it would be a great match—while your mind is playing with your imagination.
You end up talking with that someone—f.i.n.a.l.l.y—which creates some confusion in your mind. You feel excited to engage in conversation with them, but you can’t ignore the negative feeling that lets you think you are not interesting enough to keep them attracted. You want to impress that someone with your words, your thoughts, your ideas, and your status. Even if you have a natural self-confidence, it feels like you are losing it in front of them. You find that someone interesting because you realize you can broach any topics with them. You obviously don’t mind listening to what they may tell you, and without them knowing it, they are successful in keeping you entertained.
It becomes natural to call that someone by pet names or nicknames. You are (always) nice to them, you never argue, you laugh with them, you love teasing them, you listen to their words, you give them advice, you support them, you become their shoulder to cry on—and you are there for them. That’s when your relationship with that someone sounds unique on your mind, and you feel like you have never had that feeling before.
