1. I say ‘I like you’.
I like you.
2. I bring you food. Or dead things.
I really like you.
3. I over-share and then don’t talk to you for ages. Or randomly hug you.
I want to be your friend.
4. I badger you with messages, chat and requests for company until you have to respond, despite your initial confusion.
You are going to be my friend.
5. I ignore you and smirk sarcastically at everything you say.
I think you’re great. Or I hate you.
