Have you ever had someone ask you, “Why do you think about me?” in the middle of a conversation? Now, your responses can be quick or slow, depending on whether you already know the answer or are still trying to piece together your thoughts.
Anybody can ask you this, whether it is a friend, a romantic interest, or even a casual acquaintance, so be ready to respond. After all, there must be a reason they have asked you this in the first place.
In this blog, let’s discover what lies beneath the surface of the question, Why do you think about me, and how to respond to that.
How to Respond When Someone Asks “Why Do You Think About Me?”
You know that the context in which the words were spoken to you, as well as the nature of your relationship with the person, are important in framing an answer.
It’ll help you keep in check your tone and the honesty of your response, too. For example, for your best friends, you’re often heartfelt in your replies. After all, there’s a reason you call them your best friend, right?
However, your responses to your significant other may be more affectionate or romantic! We also have acquaintances or people we know professionally, so our tone greatly varies when replying to them, don’t you agree?
Responding to close friends
Picture this: you’re talking to your close friend from college about random things, and then you start appreciating random things about her.
Now, listening to this, she may ask why do you think about me out of the blue. You know what to do?
Well, for starters, why don’t you express your genuine feelings for them? You can also be specific and talk about their support in your life or anything that you think is worth mentioning.
Remember, your responses would mean the world to them and perhaps tighten your bond. So, never fail to show them how important they are to you.
Here are a few responses:
Dude, you’ve been a constant pillar of support all throughout my life. How will I not think about you?
You’re my go-to person, my ride or die forever. Of course, I’ll think about you. What’s up with this question? You know I genuinely love our friendship and you!
Responding to romantic partners
Our partner, who holds a very important place in our hearts, will be the target of our next response. There may be moments when they ask this question, and you need to create a loving atmosphere because perhaps they’re feeling vulnerable and need assurance from you.
Therefore, if you have noticed their insecurity, express your feelings for them and compliment them on anything they may feel self-conscious about. Be ready to shower them with compliments, admiring them for the qualities that make them special to you. You can also talk about your shared moments together to create a sense of intimacy!
Here are a few responses:
I always think about you, baby.
You’re the love of my life.
Remember that day we woke up early to watch the sunrise, but it started raining? Damn, the date was ruined, but you won me over with your positive attitude that day!
