I read something a long time ago that stuck with me ( and has proven true ): You don't have to seek anything. All you have to do is wait for alignment: decide what you want ( by virtue of what you don't want if you're uncertain ); create a list or vision board of those qualities; place it somewhere where you either see or read it daily; and, the most important part: BELIEVE it will come to pass and it will. Your belief manifests the actual situation you want while the Universe aligns it over time. *
Agree with this completely. Not just in meeting someone, in everyday life. The desire, will and belief are the driving force in manifesting what you want in life. I always tell my son before he goes to sleep, to put thoughts of what he wants out of life into his mind, and not what is not going his way. Go to sleep thinking of good things.
As for liking someone and telling them, I don't know. I've not liked anyone enough for it to be relevant in a long time and my last three relationships, two in real life and one online. I didn't like them, they liked me and pursued me, I just happen to succumb and all three turned bad, the real life ones, extremely so.
I won't actually go near a relationship now unless I actually like someone first and there are no red flags. I've not given up on men, I've just taken a long time out for me. There is always hope. My mum remarried just over a year ago and she is 84 this year.
But, if I like someone, I don't know how I would approach it.
