How To Know Someone Thinks About You A Lot

By Catherine Wanjiru NdaiPublished 5 months ago 3 min read


Ever wonder just how often you're on someone's mind? Picture this: you're strolling through the park, lost in thought, and a soft wind carries a melody that takes you back to a shared moment with a special someone. The memory warms your heart, and you can't help but wonder: are you on their mind as well, just as they're on yours? Let's dive into this and explore five signs that might suggest someone is thinking about you a lot.

1. Pop Name(their names, texts on your phone screen always)

Have you ever glanced at your phone and found their name more often on your screen than anyone else's? It could be a simple "hi" text or maybe they sent a funny meme that sparked a memory of you. Their messages frequent your screen as though there's an invisible thread pulling them back to connect with you. According to social psychologist Dr. John Bark at Yale University, reaching out, even for seemingly trivial reasons, might be a clear sign that they're thinking about you quite a lot. The thought of you lingers in their mind, prompting them to keep the connection alive. Each text subtly reveals the space you occupy in their thoughts, shaping their actions and inspiring them to keep the conversation going.

2. The Little Things

Have you ever found them remembering little quirks and stories about you that even you've forgotten over time? It could be something as simple as an offhand comment you made about your favorite childhood dessert. Weeks later, they surprise you with the exact same dessert, a twinkle in their eyes as they watch your surprised reaction. According to psychologist Dr. Arthur Aaron, when someone is thinking of you often, they're more likely to remember these small, seemingly insignificant details about you. The frequency of their thoughts enhances their ability to recall these details, imprinting your presence in their mind. It's a wonderful feeling to be remembered in such a detailed and thoughtful manner.

3. Dreams About You

Do you recall them mentioning your cameo in their dreams? Whether you played the heroic adventurer or perhaps the intriguing stranger in a surreal narrative, these dreamy encounters might indicate something more profound. According to famous psychoanalyst Dr. Carl Jung, if a person frequently appears in someone's dreams, it might be a sign that the dreamer's mind is frequently occupied with thoughts of that person. Your presence, whether as a protector, companion, or mystery, persists even when they close their eyes—a testament to how often they may be thinking about you.

4. Protective

Ever found yourself under their wing, feeling secure and safe? It's in the way they stand up for you, deflecting hurtful comments, or ensuring you reach home safely after a night out. Renowned psychologist Dr. Elaine Hatfield suggests that this protective behavior often stems from their thoughts being deeply invested in your well-being. It's as if your safety has become a priority in their mental landscape. When their actions are influenced by the frequency of their thoughts about you, it creates a comforting feeling, knowing that you're on their mind.

5. They Look Forward to Seeing You

Have you noticed their eyes kindle at the sight of you, even if it's a fleeting encounter in a bustling coffee shop or a quick hello in a crowded hallway? That instantaneous spark, the way their gaze softens, the anticipation that seems to animate their eyes—it's almost like you've ignited a hidden joy within them. According to esteemed social psychologist Dr. Susan Sprecher, anticipation accompanied by visible delight often arises from the frequency of thoughts directed towards you, with your image occupying their mind.

So there you have it, five signs that may suggest someone thinks about you a lot. If you've experienced any of these signs with someone, feel free to comment down below, give a thumbs up to this article, and subscribe for free. Thank you.
