    Cool soft spot


    When you like someone but not yet in love, can you say:

    'I have a soft spot for her'? Or is it used in other contexts?

    Re: soft spot

    Not a teacher.

    Having a "soft spot" from someone or something means you are inclined to think of them or treat them favorably. It need not be a person you are falling in love with.

    "I have a soft spot for puppies."
