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.

    (So, before I start I’m sorry if I don’t seem to make sense and also sorry for my grammar mistakes)
    There is this guy who caught my eye about a year ago. He just looked really cute. I didn’t even know this guy’s name and here I was developing an interest in him. But then a couple of months later, we were both at this camp together which was where I learned his name. I am pretty sure he knows I like him because I stare at him often. For about a month I didn’t see him so I assumed he was on vacation. So I was sitting down one day when I noticed in my peripheral vision somebody staring at me. I looked back and noticed my crush staring at me. I met his eye and held contact. Then he looked the other way. I turned back around as well. But then I noticed again that he was staring at me. This time though I didn’t meet his eye. This was the day that he came back from his “vacation”. I have poor vision and that day I had forgotten my glasses at home so I cannot be completely sure if he really was staring at me. But then again, these sort of situations have happened a couple of times and he is always the first one to look away.
    My friend seems to think that he is only staring because he knows me. (He knows me because of a math competition we were both at, he only knows my name, I think)
    And I think that he is only staring at me because he knows that I like him. But I want your opinion on this. I don’t want to get my hopes up for something that is never going to happen.

      It is possible that he is interested in developing a relationship with you. He may want to speak with you, but he may be too shy to make the first move. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him the opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Sugar!

    Hello! (This is a bit of a messy story lol)
    So, I have a crush on a guy who I was 95% sure liked me. (He stared a lot, his friends teased him, matching body language, etc. He was very self conscious though, and when it seemed like he was showing any feelings of any sort, he would back off.) I even overheard him talking to his friend in the school hallways about “admitting his feelings to ‘her'” then falling completely silent when he noticed me. (There were a bunch of other signs too.)
    On the last day of school, I think I accidentally hurt my crush’s ego by not engaging in his pretty straightforward attempt at trying to flirt with me. (It was this really warm smile with no possible way to classify as a “friendly smile,” it was extremely obvious it was flirting.) Another sign this wasn’t a usual smile was I saw his friends pushing him around and laughing silently afterwards.
    But anyway, he started ignoring me after that event. I finally decided to tell my crush I liked him the same day, since I wasn’t sure when I would see him again. (It was the last day of school.)
    His reply was an “I don’t know,” at first and then when I asked him to give a straight answer, he said “…I don’t know, I don’t like anyone at the moment.”
    He then proceeded to ignore me on all social media for three weeks, started interacting with me online again for a short period of time, then ignored me again. My friend tried messaging him telling him to stop ignoring my messages, because it was rude. He obviously didn’t listen.
    Then during school enrollment, we had a camp for new students. He was there but always stayed far away from me, leaving where he stood when I got close. I caught his eye once or twice from a distance when it was almost certain I wouldn’t look and see him.
    (I think he also tried to get a last glance when leaving the room.)
    Will this thing between us go anywhere? And should I wait for him or move on?

      It sounds as though the two of you were interested in developing a relationship with each other and then your mutual feelings faded. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. If you want to reach out to him at this time, then do so. Speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. If he is not interested in nourishing a relationship with you, then allow you thoughts of him to fade. Have a great day, Chloe!

    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.
