Does my crush like me? This is the most mind-boggling question a girl can ask herself when she’s head over heels for a guy who she’s not even sure notices her.
Usually, when your best friend asks if you think their crush likes them back, you’re quick to put on your detective hat and are all hands on deck trying to get to the bottom of it. And you are actually quite good at deciphering all those signals!
When feelings aren’t involved and you can make a clear assessment as a third party with no emotional connection to the situation, it’s not that difficult figuring out if your bestie is clearly on someone’s mind.
She’s very close to you, and if you’ve ever been around the man she has this huge crush on, you’ve most probably noticed signs that would point out to his affection toward her or lack thereof.
But when it’s you, things are a bit trickier than that!
When you have a crush on someone, your head is not exactly the best judge of character. Your emotions are a little heightened, your mood is a bit more elevated, and you’re no longer sure whether you can trust your instincts!
What if you make a fool of yourself? What if this person doesn’t even know you exist… yet there you are, picturing the dress you’ll be wearing on your wedding day. It’s just so frustrating not knowing.
Crushes are not something that just stop happening as you get older – unfortunately for all of us.
There’s no stopping your brain from obsessively tormenting yourself with feelings of attraction toward certain people but not quite sure if you should, or even could, approach them.
You feel like you’re back in ninth grade, pining over an eleventh grader, wishing he’d finally notice you, and ask you to go out with him during recess to make out behind the bleachers. That was the dream way back when…
But now, you feel childish going through the exact same thing, ten (or more) years later.
Guess what? Crushing on a guy doesn’t make you childish. It doesn’t mean you’re stuck in some kind of a rut nor should it be something you’re embarrassed about!
Girl… I’m in my late twenties, and I can’t tell you how many crushes I’ve had in between relationships. And it kills me now just as much as it did all those years ago. You can’t help what you feel, so take it easy on yourself.
The good thing is, you’re a little bit older now, probably much wiser and more mature. Your instincts are sharper, and you’re more capable of making a good call.
Experience is the mother of all teachers. And if you feel like there’s a chance your crush likes you back, you’re most probably right. But just to be sure, I’ve assembled some clear signs that indicate that he’s crushing on you as well.
So if you’re falling hard for someone and desperately want to know whether the guy likes you back, keep reading to find out! If he showcases any of these signs, you’re in luck because it means that he obviously likes you back!
