Tips to Let Your Crush Know You Exist

You have a crush but you don’t want to BE crushed.  Sometimes asking a person out can feel too risky, you want to know if the feelings are reciprocated first. What can you do to let your crush know that you like him/her without feeling like you are putting your head on the chopping block of love?

Here are a few simple ideas:

  • Make eye contact: nobody ever died from laser beam eyes. Your crush needs to know that you are interested (if that’s what you desire) and interest is first shown through eye contact.  However, be careful of staring!! That can get creepy. If your crush keeps looking at you, OK.  But if he/she looks away and then looks back, you might want to think about breaking eye contact for a bit too. You don’t want to be seen as the stalker.
  • Compliment your crush: nobody ever died from saying something nice and no one can fault you for it. Being nice is nice. Just make sure you don’t over do it, a few compliments here and there are natural. Twenty in under an hour can be overwhelming.
  • Offer help when appropriate: nobody ever died from offering to help with algebra homework. If you know your crush is having a hard time with something, see if you can help. Offer it once, twice at the most. If it’s not taken, it’s not wanted, but your head will still be attached.
  • Ask a question: one question never killed anybody. Think about something that would be natural to ask and then ask it. Look him/her in the eye when you do it, then thank him/her if appropriate. Smile.
  • Arrange to do something in a group: there’s safety in numbers! Going to the movies with your friends? Approach your crush and ask if your crush and his/her friends want to go as well. You haven’t singled him/her out but you’ll be saying, “It would be cool to hang with you and your friends.”

Don’t however,

  • follow him/her everywhere. Can you say STALKER?
  • call or text him/her repeatedly without responses in kind. Can you say STALKER again?
  • laugh at him/her with your friends. Can you say RUDE?
  • flirt with other people around him/her. Can you say DUH?
  • ignore or avoid him/her. Can you say HELLO? Because at least a hello is better than being ignored.
  • get in the habit of having your friends do the bidding for you. If you like someone and want to ask him or her out, then just do it.

    MY tip for letting a crush know that I like him would be if I start talking to them more and trying to see if they fit into my friend group by asking if they would like to come out with us one night. This is so that I see how they would react with not only me but my friends also. In other words, I would try seeing if they’re also interested by asking to hang out.

    Be a nice person, let them know that you care and that you are there for them at all times. Drop little hints, smile at them, make small talk, invite him to hang out, etc.

    Start talking to them either in class or on the internet like snapchat or texting. On snapchat you can start a “streak” which means you send them a message every 24 hours and you see how long that lasts. If you do this then it requires you to talk at least one time a day, so overtime you will talk a lot more so you become closer.

    My approach is to make a nice gesture. By this I mean wait until the time is right and help her with whatever may be troubling her or him. Everyone likes someone that cares just don’t be a “stalker” and know when you are not wanted.

    Just start talking to them but you don’t need to let them know that you like them. Just start conversations with them.

    I believe that you dont even need to tell your crush that you have greater feelings for them. Just spend time with them and cherish the friendship that you already have with them. They will soon see your feelings for them by themselves.

    as hard as it is face your fears and make a move go and talk to them even if its a simple hello, trust me it can go a long way. But please in my personal opinion don’t act one way or do something that isn’t you just to get their attention. When that person sees you, you want them to like you for you not fabricated personality you have portrayed. Try just try say something do something to lightly and slowly start building a relationship and then see where it goes from there.

      I completely agree with you but here’s something you should do. Don’t make your relationship with them so awkward, just cherish the friendship you’ll begin to make and nurture it until it blossoms into a flower. Love them like you love your best friend.
