    Default Meaning of Phrase "I really like you a lot."

    What do you think it might me when an infp says, "I really like you a lot" after he turns his head to the side. Could it more... or should I just take the statement literally?

    What does "I really like you a lot" mean to you?" infps or any other nf. Thanks for your thoughts.

    I'm not an NF, but am having difficulty figuring out what you mean by "turning head to the side"... cocking his head to the side? Looking to the side in one direction or the other? Laying in bed and looking up, but then turning his head towards you? (Who is laying on the side?) Facing eyes down and to the side? Facing eyes up and to the side? Too many things to picture. Also, need to know the rest of the conversation.

    says the se user haha that's great s n s.
    i on the other hand would need to take everything i know about our relationship to determine what was meant...it could mean i really like you a lot but... or god can't you see how much i like you!! or i can't act on it because of this or that that we are both aware of but please don't take it personally...etc etc..

    Well you can turn your head to the right or left while addressing the person in
    front of you. That's what he did. He turned his head to the right then he made this statement.

    I would expect the person to at least be facing you when making that statement (and if he was so shy.... then he can face to the side after making the statement.) This is even more so if he was directly in front of you.

    Turning his head while making that statement just makes me think that there is something else that is also in his mind. Either that, or he was just...really..really..really...shy and saying that took a bit of courage.

    Ummm... Well I'm afraid I can't be of too much help in terms of context. He made the statement towards the close of a conversation. I'm not exactly where tho.. There was nothing said right before the comment the he was responding to except silence. I can say that he's never expressed his feelings for me verbally to me before. I think it was difficult. With us it's always reading between the lines. Our relationship has seemed to become much more serious lately - at least that's what I feel when I'm around him. I feel like I've fallen in love with him and so has he fallen for me (but I don't know). Lately I've been missing him and that's what we were talking about. Its difficult for me to see him on a frequent basis and that hurts me. When I told him, he responded by saying he thought it was brave for me to tell him this. It didn't seem brave to me. Rather it seems like the truth. Does a person necessarily associate missing someone with loving them? Is this what he thinks. I was uncomfortable talking to him - squirming and acting nervous because I didn't know what to say (although I had rehearsed it a dozen times). He had a smug, self satisfied look on his face that I've never seen before. I don't know what that meant... I do know that he made the comment some time after this...

    Hope this provides context.

    If I said it, I'd be dying to say more.. It'd be me making some step or feeling out a situation.

    He is pretty shy about talking about feelings. But I also thought that maybe there's something more to the statement - something he's holding back.

    You mean you'd say more or try to read more into the exchange? Not sure what you're saying - sorry!

    If I felt the urge to say that to someone, it'd entail that they meant a lot. I don't know about this guy, but I don't say things like that casually. But if they weren't very receptive to it, then I might leave it at that.

    On another note, if you feel the same way about him, let it be known in one way or another. Don't do that IFJ thing where you go off and ponder in silence too much. ;D
