It’s February and you know what that means? Valentine’s is just around the corner! Let this loved-up holiday but a spring in your step and a flutter in eye lashes.
Have you got your eye on someone and want to tell them how you feel? There’s no better time to spark the flames of love than during this romantic holiday season! Yeah, Yeah, Yeah – we know it’s a LOT easier said than done. We understand that it’s super difficult raising the topic of liking someone, especially when you aren’t sure how they feel about you.
Maybe they don’t feel the same way about you… or maybe this is your future husband – you’ll never know unless you ask them!
To save you the stress of figuring out how someone feels about you, we’re here to show you the tell-tale signs of someone liking you. Find out if someone has a crush on you with the help of our detailed guide!
1. They Initiate Conversation
If they are the ones who are always approaching you – then there is a large possibility that they like you. Maybe they ask to sit with you at lunch, maybe they discuss a project with you via whataspp or start sending you links to that film you both talked about earlier that day on facebook. If they are looking for ways to communicate with you then it’s safe to say that they have a certified crush on you.
But, how can you tell he doesn’t just want to be friends with you? Yes, that is also a possibility, but you can usually tell from the way he converses with you. If his chats with you are brief and informative rather than fun or intimate – then you’re probably barking up the wrong tree.
2. They ask you to hang out one-on-one
If they want to spend time alone with you, it indicates that they want to learn more about you or develop a closer relationship without the disturbance of other people around. If he always arranges to hang out with a group of friends rather than alone, this may be a red-flag they are not interested in you romantically.
3. They start changing up their look
Your friends plan a party. You’ve got your usual little black dress on, your friends are in their go-to party gear – and you’re crush is there looking a little…different. He’s a chilled out guy, but tonight he’s in a fancy shirt, smart shoes and he reeks of cologne! What’s going on? The answer might be that he’s trying to impress a certain somebody. Maybe you’re into a grungier aesthetic and he’s started introducing a touch of Nirvana to his everyday looks. Is he wearing cool and casual Toms now, when before he wouldn’t even know what they were? Has he got a new piercing? These may be tell-tale signs that he’s trying to get your attention!
4. When they talk to you they never get distracted
They aren’t constantly checking their phone or distracted when they talk to you. You can tell that they are 100% interested in what you have to say and nothing would take their focus away from the conversation. Do they laugh at your jokes when you know they aren’t funny? Are they deeply engaged and connected when you can tell that what’s coming out of your mouth is utterly dull and boring? They may have a crush on you!
5. They touch you
It could be a tap of the arm or a quick hold of the shoulder to help stress a point in conversation, if your crush is looking for opportunities to touch it’s a clear sign that they are interested. Touching is usually seen as a gentle form of flirting.
6. They offer to pay for you
You’re out at a club and your crush suggests you get another drink with him. If you say you’re out of cash and he offers to pay for you instead without any expectation to be paid back, there is a great chance that he’s interested in you! If someone has a crush on you they’re always prepared to go out of their way to help you. Someone who is interested will do all sorts of things! They’ll drop you home from the office, they’ll fix your laptop, they’ll buy you your favourite sweet when they see it… keep your eyes peeled for this type of behavior!
7. He’s super friendly when he texts
It’s known that men are a little less, um, gushing when they text compared to women. If he’s using a lots of emoticons and ends each message with an exclamation mark and four kisses – he’s trying to be as friendly and charming as possible. It also shows that he may be a bit over-excited with the concept of speaking to you – how cute, right? Or maybe he’s subtly flirting on different social media platforms. Maybe he’s liking everything on your facebook from that Mr Shoes weblink to pair of hot ankle boots you just shared to that status about waiting for the bus.
8. You can tell he’s nervous around you
He’s usually Mr Cool, but he gets a bit giggly and twitchy when he’s around you. This is probably the most powerful indicator that he really likes you. He’s nervous because he wants to make a good impression on you. He cares so much that he might mess it up around you that he starts saying silly things and moving around too much.
