If they are attracted to someone they find some charming, kind and inoffensive ways of making their feelings clear.

How little of our truth is originally acceptable to those originally brought us into the world. Simultaneously, tell ourselves that our circumstances have changed.
No one is going to hurt at us. Speak inexplicably hurt, like they once did.
They are painfully unaware of the legitimacy of their own feelings. Which renders them unable to let the world know what they truly want and feel.
They will give every impression of being happy with you, while crying inside.
They feel overlooked, but won't ever push themselves forward or raise a complaint.
They are longing to be understood but never speak.
When they are attracted to someone, only outward evidence might be few sarcastic comments. Leaving the object of their affection bemused or unimpressed.
Because the child met with criticism when put forward his authentic thoughts, he develops emotional code. He became someone who imply rather than state.
Who has given up saying anything that its audience already might not want to hear.

Our complicated behavior doesn't in fact please people.
Most of the people we deal with far rather be disappointed head on, than to sold a fine tale and then have to suffer disappointment in gradual doses.
