Is it mutual?

Great, you’re in love. And the other person? Do they feel the same?

5 tips

  • Is he or she still around? Do you often have eye contact? Maybe you’re succeeding!
  • Is the person avoiding you? Do you get abrupt answers if you try to talk to them? Then the feeling probably isn’t mutual. But you never know, some people are just shy.
  • Trust your instincts. You can often sense whether the other person likes you or is interested.
  • Not sure? Send the person a text or find the courage to ask them face to face.
  • Get a friend to find out if the feeling is mutual.


Sometimes it goes well and sometimes it doesn’t. Isn’t the feeling mutual? A broken heart can be truly awful and perhaps it feels like you’ll never get over it. But even though it may take some time, you do eventually get over heart break!
