1. They’re Always Running Into You

Have you ever noticed repeatedly bumping into a certain person at school or work? If they consistently show up at the same places or events you frequent, it might not be a mere coincidence. While we don’t encourage stalking as a healthy way to express love, it’s possible that this person is genuinely interested in seeing you. They might find excuses to bump into you and strike up a conversation, even if it seems coincidental. So, pay attention to these encounters — they could be meaningful.

2. They’re Quick to Defend You

A definitive sign of someone secretly in love with you is their unwavering support. Whenever someone says something rude about you or mistreats you, this person is always ready to come to your defense. They go the extra mile to protect and care for you in ways they don’t for others. Whether it’s standing up for you in a heated argument or defending your character, their loyalty and protectiveness speak volumes about their true feelings.

3. They’re Fascinated by You

Think back to your last conversation with this person. Were they genuinely interested in what you had to say? Did they actively listen and engage in the discussion? People who have fallen in love with you find you fascinating. They seek out your opinion, ask for advice, and genuinely care about your thoughts and feelings. They love learning everything they can about you — your likes, dislikes, and how you perceive the world. So, if someone shows a genuine interest in your life, it could be a sign of their hidden affection.
