This is a common pattern to occur. People oftentimes think they are only friends, while one of them develops intense feelings for the other.
Watch for a few clear signs.
Here are some signs that a friend has fallen for you:
- Touching your shoulders and ask for hugs.
- Offering their sweater or coat in a chivalrous way.
- Making jokes about the people/person you are dating.
- Inviting you over more often.
- Kissing you on the cheek or asking for kisses on the cheek.
- Asking who you like, a lot.
