My Crush Knows I Like Him and He Keeps Looking at Me : What to do Next

By on March 21, 2016

No matter how he found out, now he knows. Your crush finally knows you like him! What does he do with that information? Does he rush up to you and proclaim his feelings? Is he completely avoiding you because he doesn’t feel the same way?

None of those? Well, what if he keeps looking at you over and over again without saying a word or making any moves? While this is the most annoying thing a guy can do after he finds out you like him, it’s one of the most common. Here is what you should do if your crush knows you like him and he keeps looking at you.

But first…

First let’s talk about what him looking at you could possibly mean:

  1. He’s Checking You Out

Some guys don’t take notice to a girl until they find out she’s interested. This could be him just checking you out and deciding if he has feelings or not.

  1. He Feels Self Conscious

He could just be the shy type and is feeling self-conscious about himself. He might be looking at you to see if you’re looking at him or not. If you are, he may alter his stance/position to look better.

  1. He Might Like You Back

A lot of the time, when someone finds out you like them and they keep staring at you it’s because the feeling is mutual.


What to do Next!


  1. Smile at Him

If someone knows you like him and he keeps looking at you, don’t just stare awkwardly. Smile!! Smiling at your crush is a perfect way to let him know you are friendly and approachable. Many men get intimidated and rather shy when they find out a girl is into them. It makes them nervous and they may not know how to approach the situation. So go ahead and smile. They’ll take it as a positive signal from you.


  1. Wave

Don’t just leave it at a smile. He could mistake that for your politeness or not even realize you’re directing the smile at him. So send him a smile AND a wave. This shows that not only are you acknowledging him, but you’re making the first move to initiate some sort of contact. The next move is up to him.


  1. Talk to His Friends

If you really want to know how a guy is feeling towards you or even why he keeps looking at you when he knows you like him, ask his friends. They’re like the keeper of all guy secrets! Just start chatting up one of his friend and casually mention that your crush keeps looking at you and you want to know why. They might divulge what’s really going on in his head and it will no longer be a mystery to you!


  1. Gauge his Body Language

Body language gives away SO much more than people think. If you want to know what he’s thinking, just watch him for a little bit – just don’t be creepy about it. Firstly, if he’s looking at you after finding out that you like him, he must be thinking about you in some way. Is his body turned toward you? Does he keep looking at you even when you notice he’s looking? These are all signs that he might be into you as well.


  1. Go Talk to Him

For the love of all that is right in this world, JUST GO TALK TO HIM! The fact that he’s looking at you so much might mean that he’s just trying to get your attention. He could also be too shy to make the first move even if he does like you back. Or maybe he doesn’t know you enough to have those feelings and is just checking you out because maybe he wants to see if he likes you, too. Either way, you’re not going to find out by sitting back and watching him look at you from across the room.

Guys are sometimes really difficult to decode. If you’re stuck figuring out why he’s looking at you, try these tips.

    Um…mine’s different. My crush found out almost a year ago and is kinda creeped out by me because people said I stalked him when I didn’t and I look at him quite often. So when I saw him staring at me I was confused, I’m 100% sure he doesn’t like me. What does it mean for me?

      If you are 100% sure that he doesn’t like you, then there is no relationship for you to pursue. Take this time to look inward and determine what you want for your future without him. If you are not certain, then perhaps you can attempt to establish a relationship with him. Try to speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Best of luck, Felinity!

        I’m pretty sure he hates me. And that can’t be changed. I wish we could just be friends sometimes and then he acts like a d*ckhead. Thanks anyway.

    I’m so confused! Not just to how he feels but how I feel? I don’t want to be played or be someone’s booty call! This guy, has complimented me before, and has even said stuff like, shut up or really sassy comments. He talks to his guy friends about girls and how they’re not virgins and crap, and once they told me if I was. I said yes. I believe in being abstinent, and waiting to have sex when finally married. I value my belief but they his friends laughed and he stared at me. I get along well with guys, I’m actually pretty tomboyish! So they said that’s such a girly belief, and the guy who stared at me said, “You actually believe in that crap?” He’s flirty but a player, he’s not a bad guy. One day I got real pissed at him, he poked my butt while we were going up the stairs. I couldn’t turn fast enough to smack him in the face, but I smacked his shoulder several times, yelling at him to not touch me! This was after we had a damn conversation about having a purity ring, which I don’t have.. So he said he’ll take advantage of this time. A few days later I texted him to say sorry, he said it over text, and when I saw him again all he did was stare at me because I was ignoring him. His stare looked serious, he never turned away he looked straigh at me.

      Remove him from your life. He is not respecting you or your beliefs. If you find that you are continuing to have trouble with him and his actions, then speak to an authority in your school. They will be able to help you manage him. If you find that you want to develop a relationship with him in the future, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings at that time. Have a great day, Anon!

      You have shared your letter with him and he responded with positive energy. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. It is clear that he is interested in developing a relationship with you. The only option for you to take is to make your relationship official. Best of luck, Sophie!

      If you find that you are looking at him and he is looking at you, then attempt to speak with him. Try to develop a relationship with him based on communication. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Learn about his thoughts as well. Have a great day, Nessa!

    I am crushing on a boy older than me and he knows I like him through a friend of his. But he doesn’t show any signs of liking me back. I don’t know whether he even stares at me because I look away whenever we made an eye contact. I am a shy girl when it comes to starting a conversation with a boy unless I’ve known him for years. But I do notice, when he’s around his friends, he is all smiles. Until he sees me in his sight, his sweet smile faded and he looks pretty nervous, yet, doesn’t even looks at me. He often with his friends passes in front of me and my group even though there are other ways he can go. And either one of his friends will glance at me. What does it mean?

      He may be concerned about your feelings toward him. He may be too shy to speak with you. He may not want a relationship with you. There are many possible reasons for his actions. Your best option is to take your life into your own hands and move in the direction that you want. If you want to speak with him, then walk up to him and speak with him. If you want him to fade from your life, then allow it to happen. Best of luck, Tatum!

    Ok. i know I had posted two messages and this time, I am going to share you the whole story so that you won’t feel confused. I like this guy who is two years older than me (Like I said before). He seemed very excited after he found out a girl likes him. He asked my classmates about me, for example, how do I look like. After that, he always walks in front of my class and my friends caught him staring at me. A year after that, (this year), he stopped asking questions about me. He even ditched a meeting twice because I am in it. Before, he always comes. I couldn’t even spot his friends, it’s like he ditched the meeting with them. But sometimes I saw him looking at me. However, I always look away when we made eye contact. It’s my ego, I want to appear as a confident, cheerful woman in front of him. Yet, I just couldn’t tell if he likes me or not. Because it seems like he is either avoiding me or a shy type of guy.

      He is nervous and likely wants to establish a relationship with you. Speak with him and spend time with him. If he continues to avoid you, then speak to him through his friends. He may be unsure about how you feel about him. Best of luck, Perrie!

    One more thing I forgot to tell, there’s this scout meeting that is always held once in every two weeks and before he knows I like him, he always attends. But after he knows I’ve a crush on him, he hasn’t come to the meeting and he did that twice. Is he avoiding me or is he just plain shy? Even his friends didn’t attend to the meeting. I don’t understand!

      If you believe that he is interested in a relationship with you, and you want to be in a relationship with him, then take action. Take your life into your own hands and strike up a conversation with him. Be direct and honest with him about your feelings and thoughts. Best of luck, Perrie!

    There is this guy I like. He is two years older than me, and he knows I have a crush on him. But he doesn’t makes a move. All I can sense is him glancing sometimes in my direction. I never caught him staring at me because I usually avoid looking at him. i just do not know whether he likes me or not. Please tell me if he is into me or not!
