So much of the "do they like me" conversation comes down to a fear of being rejected.
Take steps to be more secure in yourself. To be comfortable in your own skin. Be your authentic self. If someone is drawn to that, great! If they aren't, then they weren't meant as a part of your life anyway. That's not a 'cruel' thing to say - it's an honest one. There are literally BILLIONS of people on our planet. Not all will be good fits, and that's fine!
