The King of Cups indicates this person sees you for who you truly are and they feel extremely connected and attracted towards you. This person wants to know everything about you and will do their best to be in your presence at all times. 

However, as they feel there is so much at stake when it comes to you, they might come off as a bit shy or maybe even disinterested.

Don’t let this fool you though. As they become super self-aware around you, they might feel nervous when interacting with you which can make them appear stand-offish.

Try to talk to them about something fun that has nothing to do with the two of you as it can help them to stop focussing on their own appearance so much.

This will eventually enable them to act lighter around you and be their true self as well.

If you feel strongly about them as well, try to make it clear to them that you reciprocate their feelings.

At this point, they’re likely having a hard time reading your feelings as they are looking at you with rose colored glasses, unable to evaluate the situation from a broader perspective.

Once they get the feeling you are interested in them as well, they are likely to take the lead and act confident with regards to their feelings towards you.
