I like this girl. 

What a powerful statement to say to yourself after a date.

A friend of mine called me this morning. He went out with somebody last night.

He told me, I woke up this morning and I thought to myself, I like this girl.

I said, now that’s an authentic thought and it feels great. Have you told her how you feel?

He said, no I haven’t.

I said to him, you should. Try it. You’ll be shocked at how much more you’ll actually connect, and how much hotter the emotional connection will be when you have sex.

Why are we so afraid to say that to each other, and even to ourselves?

We’re so afraid to say, I like this girl, because we’re so outcome focused and our minds start going in so many directions.

What if she doesn’t like me?

Is it too soon to tell her I like her?

Is she going to think I’m needy?

Is she going to think I’m desperate, don’t have choices?

Am I going to give her all of the power?

Is she going to feel the same way?

The list goes on and on. I could probably go on for 20 minutes about all of the excuses we make for not saying, I like this girl.

Liking somebody is amazing. It’s great. It’s why we’re all dating.

It’s why we’re all swiping. Why we’re all learning how to meet people. It’s so we can like someone.

So what’s the problem in telling somebody you like them?

It’s a beautiful thing, it’s authentic, it’s real. And the fact of the matter is, it’s never about them, it’s always about you.

Learning how to be authentic and real is basically learning how to be that guy who can step up and say, I like this girl.

It’s great to like a girl. It’s one of the most beautiful things you can do.

I like this girl. 

How does it make you feel when you say that?
