How do you know if you're in love with someone?

I'm not dating him, but I've liked him A LOT for the past two years and I can not stop thinking about him. I think about him all night long, and all throughout the day.

It may just be a strong infatuation, bordering on obsession. I've done it too, don't stress over it too hard. Take it a day at a time, and if you can, try and get to know him as a friend (if you don't already) and avoid letting your feelings take over.

The more you think about and worry about it the more intense the feelings may get, keep that in mind :)

I love this. Thanks so much! I do know him as a friend actually, and of course he's great... But i don't want to be JUST friends.. Oh well! Better friends that nothing right? And I like the last part, helps a lot, thanks(:

Yup, better friends than nothing. :D

Share in some good activities together and cherish the memories you have, and you never know if something can grow from it. But as long as you're able to control your feelings to a degree it will make your relationship more stable.

Yeah, that's true. Do you think if I were to hang out with him and he were to try and lead me on like he normally does, I should act friendly about it, like it doesn' t bother me and I don't like him like that, or should I flirt backk, or whatt??

If he's leading you on and he knows you have feelings for him, ask him straight up what he's doing. Because in my books, doing stuff like that isn't cool, as it can make feelings worse and make you upset.

If he doesn't know if he cares about you the same way, at least you know, and perhaps taking a break would be best while he sorts his feelings out.

Yeah, that's true! I just need to know what he actually thinks about me, so I don't keep getting my hopes up:( Thanks for the advice! I'll try it(:

Well we used to talk a lot, and I told him I liked him and he didn't really do much... Just lead me on and so I'm pretty sure he knows I do.

Oh well then forget about him you told him, he knows, he didn't do anything to show that he likes you back. Find somebody else that will give you all their time :)

Yeah, you're probably right. Thanks for the advice(:
