Mercifully, he can recognise his parents when he meets them at the breakfast table — his visual memory is less impaired than his memory for facts.But other than his closest friends and family, Ricky cannot recognise people.
To answer your question from the information you’ve given me… From what you told me, my read on what you’re trying to figure out is one of three scenarios: a) you want to know that he likes you because knowing someone likes you feels good, b) he is indifferent to you (in the romantic sense), but you and you’re seeing what you want to see, c) you don’t know whether or not he likes you, but you’d be open to starting something with him.
I’m going to go with the assumption that you like him, mainly because if you didn’t, you wouldn’t have asked.
So let’s assume that I’m right and you like him and you’d like it if he wants you back.
I would even bet that you’re probably hoping I write back that he does like you. At the heart of all of these games and guesses is doubt.
