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.

    I really like this guy but he’s shy and I am too he always looks at me and recently when I’m behind him he pretends to look back but he looks at me he is really nervous around me. I like him but I’m scared his friends will make fun of me the last time I liked him he found out but now I like him he doesn’t know I really want him to talk to me

      Your best option is to speak directly and honestly with him. This will help him feel more confident about himself and more willing to share his ideas and thoughts with you. You know that he is interested in you, but he may not know that you are interested in him. That is why you should take action at this point in time. Have a great day, Missy!

    Hi! I Have a crush on this guy in my school for about 2 years. I think its not a crush anymore since its a bit longer. I think he found out that I liked him because my friends are so obvious and attempted to chat him. They even love-chained us on Valentines Day. And when its my bday they asked the guy to add me on facebook. I was so happy but when I found out that my friends just forced him, I was a bit sad. I made the first move by chatting him that I was sorry because of my friends. Then on the other day, I asked him about anime and stuffs that he likes and I ask for his advice what to watch. Then our convo started there. Then he was so friendly and he was lauging at my jokes through chat. At first I was the only one initiating our convo, and now he’d doing it too. But I think its also the worse thing that my friend invited him to be a part of her 18 roses sice they aren’t that close. He asked advice for me. Then months passed we stopped chatting, I miss him. And jut recently my fb friend chatted the guy an told him that you are my making my friend happy. I was so mad because I should be the one who will confess not her. So things got awkward. I saw him today because its enrollment at school. In fact I encountered him for so many times. I didn’t look at him, I can’t. I was just shy that he might think that I was too desperate and obsessed. So when I went out of the office we see eye to eye and I swifted my glanced away quickly. Then the last part he was in the room when I entered and I know in my instincts that maybe he’s looking at me cause I was standing in front of him waiting for my number. I know he was looking at me so I didn’t even looked back. I just find my sit. What should I do? I was so confused and the next time I want to smile at him.

      Talk to him! He has continued talking to you, even though it sounds like he probably knew already that you liked him. There is a decent chance that he could like you. Whatever the case, you will have to get over this awkwardness sooner rather than later, so just start talking to him again. Act like nothing happened–if he does like you, he can always make a move. I would stop ignoring him though because he may think that you stopped liking him or are angry at him.
