Signs of a Crush or More

How do you know when someone likes you? Don’t you just wish you were some type of mentalist who could read other people’s minds? Then you could find out in a pinch whether or not that gorgeous thing likes you.


While reading minds is tough, reading the signs isn’t:

  • Laughter: does your crush try to make you laugh? Tell you silly jokes? Laugh at all your silly jokes? This is a good sign.
  • Eye contact: does your crush make eye contact with you? Do you catch your crush looking at you and then looking away, or better yet, looking at you and then NOT looking away? Staring with a smile is a definite sign.
  • Grooming: does your crush touch his/her hair or fidget with his/her clothing when you are around? “Grooming” gestures are a sign that someone likes another person. Picking your nose in front of someone is not a good sign.
  • No-reason phone or texting contact: does your crush ever text you for no good reason? Getting the assignment for Spanish from you is a sign if the Spanish assignment can be found on-line by anyone.
  • Talk about U: does your crush talk about you to other people, or better yet, talk to you about how nice you are? All good signs.
  • Offers help: does your crush offer to help you with different things, ranging from homework, catching practice or just walking home? Check, check and double check.
  • Random meetings: do you just seem to see your crush in lots of different places where you didn’t think he/she would be? (Times where you went somewhere because you thought that person might be there do not count as a sign!)
  • Talk to your friends: does your crush seem to talk to all your friends equally but just not you? It could be that talking to your friends is safer, and less nerve wracking.
  • Shows off: does your crush always seem to be performing for something when around you? Or does he/she become just a little bit louder? A little bit bolder? A little bit more animated? A positive sign actually.
  • Makes fun of you: we know, sounds crazy, but if your crush is constantly making fun of you in a lighthearted, joking and “your good at taking jokes” kind of way, that can be a sign too. But if that person is being mean and making you feel really bad about yourself, that’s not a good thing. Don’t start a relationship like that.


But, of course, don’t forget to read the anti-signs:

  • Negative Eye Contact: if your crush NEVER looks at you, it may be a sign that he/she’s not (yet!) interested. Eye contact shows interest. There needs to be at least some.
  • Flirts with someone else: if your crush is flirting with someone else and NOT at all with you, it’s probably not a good sign.  And for the rare time that your crush is doing that to make you feel jealous, think about if that’s how you’d want to start a relationship.
  • Is downright mean 2 u:  bad warning sign whether it’s because that person likes you or really doesn’t like you.  Be careful of anyone who is mean.

    If someone likes you they’ll go out of their way to talk to you or make plans with you. Other signs of someone liking you are eye contact, laughter, and subtle touching such as grabbing one’s shoulder while talking.

    some of the signs in this article is vaild. But i feel some are far fetched

  4. WLKHS413 May 5, 2017 at 1:15 pm

    I know if someone likes me by the way they talk to me. I know if they are nice to me and flirty they might possibly like me. Also many times you will never know unless they tell you personally. But some major signs are things that they say to you and how they talk to you.

  5. WLKHS401 May 5, 2017 at 1:15 pm

    If the are always trying to be around you, talks to you 24/7, tells you about there life makes it a point to see you one way or another, and is just always trying to help you with your problems and to try and care for you, just be always there for you.

  6. WLKHS406 May 5, 2017 at 1:12 pm

    I know if someone likes me because I notice their side glances or their want to communicate with me not just in class but outside of as well. Furthermore, I can identify a crush if I see that they smile when they are around me, therefore showing the better side of her and not the potentially grumpy one.

  7. WLKHS405 May 5, 2017 at 1:10 pm

    If someone likes you they will probably show signs by joking around with you and flirting with you.

  8. WLKHS418 May 5, 2017 at 1:10 pm

    If I think that someone likes me, I tend to analyze their body language towards me vs their body language towards others. I also analyze the conversations that we have with each other. As weird as this sounds, I can often sense if someone likes me by the language they use. For example: I’ve noticed that guys tend to use stronger adjectives when describing themselves or something they’ve accomplished to seem tougher and stronger.

  9. WLKHS411 May 5, 2017 at 1:03 pm

    I would know because they would try to talk to me and maybe can come off as annoying since they want to talk to me all the time

  10. WLKHS526 May 3, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    They act differently around you than other people.

    There are many suggestions like them laughing or them being very touchey which I can relate to with the relationship im in right now

  12. WLKHS501 May 3, 2017 at 3:36 pm

    If I know someone likes me is if they start to talk to me a lot also if we start to hang out much more and text a lot I guess.

  13. WLKHS512 May 3, 2017 at 3:30 pm

    Generally, I can tell if someone likes me if they start spending a lot of time around me or begin to text me way more than they normally do and begin to ask me random questions about myself. Also, guys tend to be a little bit more rougher with you and hands on (shoving, light punches, etc.).

  14. WLKHS508 May 3, 2017 at 3:29 pm

    You can tell if someone likes you if they’re they are nice to you. Most of the time you can just tell if someone is into you. l

    You can tell if someone likes you by the way they act around you. If they are showing off maybe that means they want you to take notice of them. Sometimes they won’t look at you or talk to you right away because it is nerve raking and they don’t want to mess it up. Some people who aren’t shy about their feelings will talk to you a lot and make time to see you around.

  16. WLKHS713 May 2, 2017 at 4:46 pm

    If your crush does things like laugh at stupid jokes and keeps eye contact with you while you’re talking to them that could be a clear sign that they also have a crush on you.

  17. WLKHS711 May 2, 2017 at 4:45 pm

    You are able to tell if someone is crushing on you if there always around you and trying to talk to you as much as they can

  18. WLKHS703 May 2, 2017 at 4:43 pm

    I know signs of a crush when they are shy around me or they don’t talk because this means they like you but don’t know what to say around you

  19. WLKHS717 May 2, 2017 at 4:38 pm

    I know that someone likes me when they make an effort to talk and to be around me. If someone seems like they do not want to talk to me or does not make eye contact with me while talking, I will know they don’t like me. Also, if the person goes out o their way to be with me then I will know they like me.

  20. WLKHS701 May 2, 2017 at 4:36 pm

    In my opinion when I feel like someone likes me I feel that their not the same person and their shy around you. Also I sometimes catch the person staring at me and pretending she was not looking at me. She also tells her friends which come up to me telling me that the person lies me.

  21. Anonymous May 2, 2017 at 4:34 pm

    I will figure out if someone likes me when they are acting shy around me and they really never talk to me.

  22. wlkhs311 December 22, 2016 at 7:13 pm

    You know if someone likes you they are always either trying to be around you or staring at you. If they are trying to get to know you better and trying to make you laugh, they might be into you

  23. WLKHS0103 November 29, 2016 at 3:32 pm

    You can tell that someone likes you if they want to be around you a lot. Another sign that someone likes you is if they try and make you laugh or if they care about your feelings (they want to make you happy). Actions will also show if someone likes you.

  24. WLKHS0111 November 29, 2016 at 3:27 pm

    If I catch her looking at me and then when I look at her she quickly looks away, or flirts with me.

  25. WLKHS0102 November 29, 2016 at 3:14 pm

    You can usually tell if someone likes you if you always find them looking at you and smiling at you, also if they always try to talk to you or even if they use anything they can to be near you for example if there is a trash can near you and one on the other side of the room they will most likely throw there trash out in the trash near you.

  26. WLKHS0306 November 28, 2016 at 5:16 pm

    You know if someone likes you if they get extremely flirting, and play joking with you. To me, these teasing signs are clear indications that someone may be interested in you.

  27. WLKHS0318 November 28, 2016 at 5:13 pm

    If that person goes out of their way to talk to you, or is affectionate towards you.

  28. WLKHS316 November 28, 2016 at 5:07 pm

    You can tell that someone likes you when they try to talk to you a lot, catch you before your class every period, laugh at your jokes, and smile when they are around you.

  29. WLKHS213 November 28, 2016 at 3:24 pm

    You can tell if someone likes you if they try to make you laugh. Also, if they talk about you to other people and if they try to show off in front of you.

  30. WLKHS0204 November 28, 2016 at 3:21 pm

    They will always look at you and you could tell by the way they act around you. Also her friends could tell me that she likes me.

  31. WLKHS217 November 28, 2016 at 3:19 pm

    I know if someone likes me by noticing how they are around me and maybe asking one of their if they do.
