Post Reply If someone teases you does that mean they like you?

If someone is in a relationship and teases you is that a bad thing?
Does it mean this person might have feelings?
I am a little confused on the concept so I would love to hear some thoughts on this issue.

Teasing essentially means play-fighting which I see a lot between people. Usually between good friends. What about between people who barely know each other? Or if you're in a relationship and your boyfriend teases your friends?

I would like to hear your thoughts on this.


Edit: This post is strictly about teasing boundaries and what you think is appropriate or not appropriate behavior. If you don't think this forum is at your intellectual level to give one little opinion for someone please don't say anything at all.

Edit #2: please read the content in post I'm not just asking if someone teases you then it means they like you or not.

-Nope.


Does it mean this person might have feelings?
-Not at all.


What about between people who barely know each other?
-When I started my current job I didn't know people but still teased them. It was just a fun way to get comfortable around each other.


Or if you're in a relationship and your boyfriend teases your friends?
-I don't see this as an issue.

Teasing someone is not always liking may be they enjoy Teasing you. but with Teasing if that man gives you importance and his time, treats you a bit special than his other friends then yes he likes you.

They might be having fun with you, they might like you or they might just be an arse.

What do you mean by "like you?"

What do you mean by "teasing?"

There are multiple situations where a person might tease you. Nobody will do so however unless they feel comfortable with you, with very few exceptions for those who are especially outgoing, so it is at least a sign that a person does not "dislike" you if they are teasing you.

Of course, it depends on the individual whether or not it means anything more, and the nature of the teasing. Friends tease each other all the time, so it doesn't have to be anything romantic, but everybody is different.

I mean, teasing can range from being playful to being close to malicious, after all. In the latter case, the person in question might actually be doing so just to annoy you, but in my experience that is quite rare - since if someone wants to annoy you, there's no good reason why they should be a major part of your life to begin with. Family I suppose is an exception.

It depends on the teasing, and it depends on the individual. Context is important.

it's called friendship

This shouldn't be rocket science.

People mess around with one another. It's what separate humans from robots.

Personally speaking I tease people I like and my friends tend to do the same. I think it's all about being comfortable enough with each other. I don't know about "feelings" as in attraction. Seems like something I'd do in my younger years. I'm a little beyond that point now.

Play fighting is totally flirting. But flirting doesn't mean someone is attracted to you. Flirting is a social activity. If the play fighting is verbal and less physical like chasing each other around or something, then it is basically role play where you play like you are in an disagreement. That's also a social activity. Some people are more comfortable socially with people they know or like less, they just have a bigger range of people they will interact with in this way. Some people are less likely to warm to or interact with people in general so if someone is shy and stand offish, but you see them open up around certain people it probably carries more weight in comparison who will basically like and hang with nearly anyone, but I still don't think it correlates a majority of the time to 'having feelings for" the person, which I'm going to translate to romantic interest.

No, not necessarily. Don't overlook the mean-spirited assholes who most certainly are not benevolent. Fortunately, it's usually playful.

EDIT: Christ. Didn't realize OP is condescending and mean-spirited until I read the edits and second page

yes, its a fun poke at you thats intended to make you have a certain reaction.

Teasing is one thing, but being plain out rude is another. There's a difference.

I guess their intent depends on if they like you or not. If they don't its obviously not a sign that they like you..

Like almost all things, it depends on the person. For example, I only tease those I'm comfortable with, and I love teasing and bickering with people I like (not necessarily a special other). Of course, how much I'll tease someone depends on how much THEY are comfortable with it too (if someone doesn't like teasing at all, I absolutely won't tease them).

Teasing can be a sign someone likes you, but it has got to be respectful. If they keep teasing someone who is uncomfortable, they do not truly like that person. Boundaries should always be respected.
