It happens to all of us, and your crush likes you.
You may fall for anyone at any point in life, and the feelings are not in your control.
Every romantic relationship starts somewhere, and getting attracted to someone is usually the first step. Wouldn’t it be nice if you come to know that the person you like likes you back too? They might be dropping hints here and there, but you may not have noticed them.
Signs your crush likes you
Before you take any step, you may want to establish if your crush feels the same way for you as you do for them. To make sure of his/her feelings, you can keep an eye out for some signs. Notice the subtle changes in their body language and pay attention to the way they talk. But how exactly do you know if that person likes you back? Keep reading
Here are some of the few signs that strongly indicate that your crush likes you back.
They can’t take their eyes off you.
People say that the eyes are the window to the soul
If someone has a crush on you, there’s a fairly good chance they’ll be glancing at you more often than others. There might be instances when you turn around and catch him, or her staring at you and look away when you catch them
In some scenarios, when there might be eye contact, your crush gets embarrassed. Such sneaking glances at you indicate they like you.
They get nervous around you.
Sometimes being around someone you like can make you act strangely—suddenly, the words won’t come out right, your brain doesn’t seem to work, and you fall all over yourself.
If your crush seems as nervous around you as you are around them, or something as simple as smiling often, they likely have feelings for you too. Oftentimes, we’re so nervous around the people we have crushes on that we’re too focused on ourselves to even pay attention to our crush’s behavior or body language.
Some other signs include playing with their hair, fidgeting, and fumbling when talking to you.
3. They Know Things about You That You Never Told Them
This is a classic sign.
If your crush has been crushing on you, chances are they want to know as much about you as possible. Your crush may have asked a friend of yours, stalked your social media account, or they’ve been crushing on you long before you even realized that they like you.
So if a detail about you slips out in conversation that you’ve never shared with them, it’s a pretty good sign they like you enough to make extra effort to get to know you.
Your Crush Calls You Frequently
If you find yourself talking to your crush or texting them often, with them often initiating it on most days, with questions or comments that aren’t urgent like “Hey, did you hear Katie got a puppy?” “Do you remember the name of that song we were listening to after class last week?” then they likely have a crush on you.
Also, observe their interest level and note how they try to keep the conversation going on. This indicates that he or she likes talking to you and can’t get enough of you. Their tone of speaking will conclusively reveal if he or she wants to chat with you casually or wants to have a deep conversation. How they speak can also reveal whether it is just a friendly call or something more.
He or She Likes Spending Time with You
Is your crush always available when you ask them to hang out? If they prioritize spending time with you overseeing their other friends, then he or she definitely likes you. If they are dropping hints that they would enjoy going on a date with you and does so in a slow manner, they look at you as a prospective girlfriend or boyfriend. They will tread slowly and carefully before making any serious moves if he or she really likes you. If every party ends with your crush gravitating in your direction, they may have feelings for you too. This shows he or she likes you deeply and sees you as a possible partner. They do not want to mess things up by rushing you.
Your Crush Remembers Details about You
Most people know and remember almost every detail about their crush. If you’re wondering whether your crush knows about you in detail, too, be alert and keep a check out on their attention to detail. Notice how intrigued they are about you. If your crush likes you back, they will probably remember intricate things such as things you have said earlier or things that interest you. When your crush asks you questions, it is definitely a good sign, but if they remember everything you said, they surely like you a lot. Your crush can show a genuine interest in you by asking questions. You’ll get further confirmation of how they feel if they remember the tiniest stuff you tell them, like the name of your first pet, your favorite color, or so on.
They Make Physical contact often.
Handshakes, high fives, and hugs are common forms of physical contact between platonic friends. If your crush makes physical contact more often in other forms, such as giving you an encouraging pat on the back or holding your hand when you’re upset, it could indicate they have deeper feelings towards you. Pay attention to these instances and notice if they happen only with you or with others
They Talk About Their Plans with you.
Ask yourself this question.
Does your crush open up to you?
If your crush tells you something they normally wouldn’t tell anyone, such as their plans, they like you and see a future with you. If you notice your crush talking deeply about their goals and ambitions, take it seriously. Most people indulge in serious talks only if they see a person as a potential partner. This is their way of letting you know what they expect to accomplish in their lives. Also, they might be checking if both of you are going down the same path in life. Everyone looks out for partners who are steady and are supportive of their career goals, especially guys. This is a sure sign that they have started taking things seriously and are looking forward to building a relationship with you.
Their friends act weird around you.
It’s a strange feeling to be around two people who like each other.
If your crush tells his or her friends about you (which is likely possible), they may start acting a little weird when they see you, giggling or whispering back and forth to each other. They might even ask you point-blank how you feel about your crush or tease the both of you with comments like, “Why don’t you sit next to so-and-so?” or “I’ll let you two be alone” (often accompanied by a knowing look or giggle) chances are they can pick up the tension between you and your crush or your crush said something about crushing on you.
They listen to you
While this sign in itself doesn’t indicate or confirm romantic interest, it holds when combines with other signs. Suppose you find your crush listening to you carefully, asking polite questions, giving the appropriate emotional reactions such as laughter, surprise, or shock when you’re telling a story. They likely have a crush on you. If they are hooked by everything you’re saying, it indicates a higher level of interest in you.
Your Crush Likes To Impress You
They like to portray a masculine or feminine image through their body language to stand out in the crowd. If your crush likes you, he or she will overdo it to make you notice them and probably like them too. To make you fall for them, they will try every trick in the book to come across as an interesting person. They put in out-of-the-way efforts to impress you because he or she likes you a lot and is nervous about getting their feelings reciprocated. Sometimes, they might even make a special gesture exclusively for you to try and amaze you. Observe too how much extend your crush goes in their actions to impress you.
They Flirt With Other People and Watch You
If you see your crush flirting with other people in front of you, don’t get disappointed. They might be doing so to observe how you react to make sure if you like them. Notice how they get jealous when you talk to other people as well. It’s a sure-shot sign indicating your crush likes you and has a soft corner for you. When you talk to other people, you can make out whether they are evidently jealous. They might pretend how happy they are for you, but on the other hand, he or they will be keeping a check on you. If he or she likes you, then your crush will notice if the other person can make you laugh and giggle. If other people start hitting on you, they will fall short of words, get anxious, and avoid letting their feelings show in front of you.
Your Crush Body Language around you
Body language displays one’s emotions. If your crush likes you back, he will act in a different way when you are around. With their body language, they will try to build an impression on you that they seek to approach you. How do you ascertain this signal? Take special notes and observe them, especially when they crack a joke or act funny in a group to make everyone laugh, stand straight when they see you or if they fix their hair, clothes when you’re around.
If you catch them looking at you first to observe your reaction, take it as a good indication and be sure they like you. They look at you first to make sure if you noticed and laughed too. This can tell you how much they like and adore you.
They may inquire about your relationships.
A clear sign your crush is interested in you is if they ask you or mutual friends about your relationship status.
They try to make you happy always.
If your crush likes you, they would not want to see you dull or sad. In case you have a bad day, they would make an effort to cheer you up. If you find them going out of their way to improve your mood, they may have feelings for you.
When you like someone, you wish they like
Love can be tricky, and decoding these signals might be even trickier. When you like someone, you wish they like you too and share the same romantic feelings until you know what they feel. You could be restless. If you notice your crush exhibiting some or most of the above signs, then they have surely fallen for you. These signs can vary from person to person and from guys to girls since nobody is the same. However, do not easily give up and keep on looking out for them. Your crush might be showing most of the above signs and making you wonder why they are not asking you out still. But fret not. They may want you to take the initial steps.
