10 Signs that your Crush Likes Someone Else

By on February 27, 2013

Liking someone so much can be a complex thing, when you were back in 5th grade, and your teacher walks in, you start feeling as though he or she is the love of your life. What you didn’t know rather is that he or she is already seeing someone else and when you come to realize this, you feel heartbroken. The question is that how does this happen?

Well, just as the time when you were at that timid age, even as an adult, you are still going through the same thing. It is quite hard to guess just how you could substantiate whether your crush likes someone else or not. This article’s main goal is to point  out various facts about crushes and how you can anticipate this  before you go in too deep, attempt something else or even worst, make a move and get rejected. Overall, whether you are a girl, or a guy, it’s practically possible to put your foot down and do the math.

So how can you know whether he or she likes you or not?

Sign #1

love signal

We can start analyzing this all the way back from school. Imagine you are on the hallway, and the person you feel so dear happens to pass by does he or she send some mixed signals? Well, if they cannot seem to notice your presence, even when you send that awkward smile, then something is amiss somewhere. Most people don’t realize this until it’s too late. Note that the first sign is everything and can deduce whether you are going to make it to the top of the list or not.  Therefore, watch out for those signs before you are submerged to the shadow of doubt by your crush.

Sign #2

your crush sit next to you

Crushes can be so challenging, we find ourselves making these funny and scary stares. It’s not just about making googol eyes but rather having your crush send the same favor to you. Look at the signs, every step of the way, you will be able to substantiate whether your crush truly likes you back or not. For instance, when your crush sits next to you in class or somewhere else, do they seem concerned at all? When someone crushes on another, they would always want to communicate, or say something even if doesn’t come out right.

Sign #3

Attention is every spec of connection you could opt to have from your crush. If they are not bothered at all, then it means that he or she doesn’t like you back, and probably it would be best if you moved past your crush or sought to identify another possibility to get through it.

Sign #4

If the crush is always talking about another person when in your presence, it could also be a sign that they are not into you as you are in them. In other words, if the girl or guy you are crushing on happens to talk about their escapades and how they value their times with other parties, it is a clear indication that they are not into you thus you should try to move on.

Sign #5

Another important sign that you should observe when crushing on someone is connection and favor return. In other words, if the person knows that you already like them, but goes further to stay away from you or keep talking about someone else, then this is a clear indication that they are not into you.

Sign #6

broken heart

Another thing is appearance. If you realize that the person, you were crushing on wasn’t putting any efforts to change their looks but soon begin changing their looks to impress someone else, it is another forceful indication that they are not into you.

Sign #7

Sometimes we wonder could a single smile make someone like you back. In addition to that, what can be done to make someone like you back? Well, if the person doesn’t want to share much with you, it clearly means that they are avoiding you hence you should stop trying, however, this is not the only thing you should focus on when looking for a sign because mostly there are those people who want to  remain friends, despite the fact that they understand your feelings. It all depends on what you want because obsession can be something else.

Sign #8

Seeing your crush in public places but with someone else who is not a family member could hurt, in fact, it is considered as another sign that the person you desire is indeed not crossing that line any time soon thus a perfect reason to do something else to forget about your feelings.

Sign #9

be yourself

Although it may not happen now, we can always keep our hopes happening   in the near future, a crush is typically something, which can take a few days or a few years depending on how much you intend to keep holding to it. However, it is recommended that you move on and stop waiting around if you have tried asking your crush severally to go out but still remain in denial. This means that they are crushing on another person and hence if it will happen in the near future, but as of that particular time, moving on would be the perfect way to stay out of sight and avoid hurting yourself.

Sign #10

you are my dream

There is no easier way to know whether your crush is indeed crushing back on you other than observing the signs. If your crush is constantly turning his or her head to look at the back, probably for you or someone else, it could mean two things. For one, they are not crushing on you but rather on someone else; or rather they are crushing on you and have no idea on where to start. For this reason, combining that gesture with something else such as a “hey”, could give you an idea on what to do, whether to make a move or not on the account of the crush.

/ and What do you do when your Crush likes someone Else?

    I am really close friends with this guy and have been for the past two or three years. We recently started talking more and he wanted to hang out last week. He said that he liked me back once I said that I liked him. He told me he broke up with his girlfriend because he had feelings for me. The thing is, this girl and him had been on and off a lot. People told me this guy was a player. Over the past few days his replies have gotten very subtle. Three days ago he would say “heyy ;))” or “love you”. But now all he ever responds is things like “ok” and “yeah” and “lol” That’s it. I have a feeling that he probably likes his ex again or someone else. He still said he wanted to hang out yesterday but I am not so sure if he still really likes me or not. Today, I tried asking him if we were a thing and he said “Idk. I don’t tell people we are a thing.” So, I don’t know if I should stop liking him and tell him I want to be friends, or try to keep it going. Help lol

      He likely is interested in developing a relationship with you. He ended another relationship to nourish a relationship with you, so this could be a sign that he is interested in maintaining various relationships. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. If you want to nourish this relationship, then spend additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Em!

    There’s a girl I like at work. But I get the feeling that she’s into my best friend. The only thing I know is that my friend helped her get the job and that they study at the same uni. Is it best for me to move on or am I just assuming things.

      It is possible that she is interested in your friend. She may only be friends with him. Determine what you want for your future. Speak with your friend to determine what course of action will ensure that your relationship is maintained. Speak with this woman about your thoughts and feelings. Give her an opportunity to share herself with you as well. Have a great day, Momo!

    I liked this boy for a while now, hes one year older than me, but recently we’re spending more time together. Every time I’m about to leave he always gives me a hug goodbye, he doesn’t do this to anyone else, and he always ask if I’m staying after school. I’m unsure if I’m just a friend though, I mean he does the hug geusture to other girls (most are his cousins). To girls that are not his cousin (that hug him) he doesn’t put his arms around them. (only if he randomly picks them up which isn’t often, or if it’s that close friend of his.) Oddly enough he does put his arms around me (for a while we did a awkward one arm hug, now he kind of draws me in closer with that one arm.) I’m unsure if he likes another girl though, but because our school is small and practically everyone grew up together like siblings, there’s quite a few transfers like me. I’ve been in this town for 3 years already, and I started liking him the end of my second year. Now I could be over analyzing things, and he could like another girl, but I can’t help but wonder if he like me instead. In the hallways when we pass by we make eye contact or I sometimes smile, but that’s about it. We really don’t get time to talk because of classes. The times we do is after school or during band.
    But I feel as if it’s all mixed signals which I’m having trouble understanding. (High school is complicated.)

      The quality of hugs that he shares with you is likely a reflection of his emotional connection with you. He may be interested in nourishing a relationship with you. Determine what you want for your future. Spend additional time with him in person, as this will strengthen your relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Sierra!

      If the two of them have not yet decided that they are in a committed relationship together, then attempt to nourish a relationship with your crush. Spend additional time with him, as this will strengthen your relationship. If you are aware of what he finds attractive in a potential partner, then perhaps use that knowledge to your benefit. Have a great day, Kaylee!

    So there’s this girl I’ve known for a few years and has recently been acting different.
    She first started off being what I think is mean and started teasing me and giving me the “disgusted look” (which was kind of a joke). Then she started complimenting what a wore and noticing the small things like a new ring. Because we are in the same friend group a few people and I started teaching a few sign language signs to others and she came up and looked at me and signed “I don’t like you”. After that I kinda just gave up all hopes of finding out then a few minutes later she signes and says “I like you” when no one was looking. I kinda got over her until recently when we started making eye contact for 2-3 seconds until I looked away. We went away to a youth thing (which was for 5 days) and we would sit next to each other even with her friends there. I started always seeing her in front of me or to my side (but I’m not sure if this is because her friends are walking there) The first big change was when she first brushed my hair away then leaned close. After that she “accidentally” pushed me then hugged me (for the first time). She would also say I looked different. I noticed that she does touch other people girls, and boys but this never happened to me before until recently

      Her behaviors may be an indication that you are on her mind. This may mean that she is interested in developing a relationship with you. Her hug may have been her attempt at sharing her feelings. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with her about your thoughts and feelings. You may be pleasantly surprised by her response. Have a great day, Random!

    Hi! There’s a guy that I really like that I thought liked me back but there’s a situation that is confusing me. I’m hoping you can give me some advice. So we met each other sometime around September and we’ve become really close friends since then. We’re both in the same friend group and we basically do everything together. Up until recently, I was receiving signs that he liked me back: we would tease each other, he would always ask to be partners for group assignments, and we would go to school early to do homework and play piano together- we basically acted like we were dating even though we weren’t. A lot of people ship us together and at times I would even see him looking at me and then looking away when I looked back. But recently I’ve been receiving mixed signals and I’m getting the feeling that he likes one of my close friends who is also in the same friend group. In person, he’s still showing a few signs that he likes me although it’s a little less now, and over text on a group chat that our friend group has, he always seems more excited to talk to the other girl. These days it’s hard to tell what he feels because there are times where he seems interested in me and then others when he seems interested in her. I’m just receiving a lot of mixed signals and I’m not sure what to think.

      The two of you spent time together and developed an emotional connection. It is possible that he is interested in developing a relationship with you. His feelings may have changed over time. He may be confused or uncertain about his feelings. His feelings may be growing for this other person. Determine what you want for your future and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Yumi!

      If you do not believe that this relationship is viable, then allow thoughts of her to fade. If you have not reached out to her since Valentine’s day, then she may be confused or uncertain about your feelings toward her. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. Have a great day, Frank!

      You should speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him the chance to share his thoughts with you as well. If you only have a few months together, then make the most of the time that you have. You may see each other in the future and begin a great relationship. Do not make any permanent plans, and be sure to enjoy the time that you have with him. Have a great day, Lisha!

        I am very nervous about how he will react because I think if I confess my feeling it can have two consequences
        1. We will get into a relationship
        2. We will never talk again END OF OUR FRIENDSHIP…… So how should I tell him about my feelings last time when we met we were talking n moving around it was around 12 am at night….. I am still in a confusion what to do. You advised me to tell him about my feelings but if it breaks our friendship I will feel extremely bad. It would be the worst feeling of my life n he is my first crush

          If the two of you are talking at midnight, then the chance that he is interested in developing a relationship with you is high. Judging by the closeness that you feel for him, it is likely that he is interested in you as well. You do not need to take any action that you do not feel comfortable taking. However, honesty is always the best policy. You can always choose to remain his friend until he makes the first move. Have a great day, Lisha!

              No. If you speak directly and honestly with him about your thoughts and feelings, then give him a chance to share his mind with you as well. There is no reason to play any games with him. If you want to be with him, then let him know and listen to his response. There is no reason to try to make him wait to call you on your birthday. Live for today and think about your birthday on that day. Have a great day, Lisha!

    Hi I’m 16 and I have a crush on a girl I’ve been hanging out with for the past 2 weeks at a mutual friends house who is a girl but this chick is super confusing because the first two times we hungout she wasn’t really wanting to show affection much but like was sort of flirting with me and it’s really hard to tell. So Friday I went over to my friends house again and everybody left after a little bit and it was just me and her and we actually were making out and we did something else that is probably not appropriate to say but then when everyone got back we stopped so no one would know and then when the people who weren’t staying left we started cuddling and making out again and it was great but just like idk if she’s actually into me romantically.

      The easiest way to find out is to just ask her. Or, you could try asking her on a date and see what she says. If she is not interested in going on a date, then she may have viewed your encounter as just a fling. If she does want to go on a date, then it seems possible that she is interested in you romantically as well. Good luck!

    Hey need some opinions,
    U see I once have a crush on this girl back on 7th grade she was on the other section but I managed to befriend her,
    In 8th grade I heard rumours about her having a crush on a guy that is her classmate, I was still on the other section, But during lunch break I did a very very very dumb move, like ask her to be my gf in class, omg it felt like the diary of the wimpy kid scenario, she blushed but admitted that she had a crush on someone else and said that” I don’t want you to be upset and hurt, but I’m can’t decide now I need some time” I was a bit worried about what was going to be her decision could barely slept that night, the day after that she wanted to talk to me about her decision, I was worried she was hesitating and then she said sorry but it’s a no I was heartbroken.

    But now that I’m at 9th grade and we’re on the same section, we do often talk even tho what happened at the past was a big nightmare and the most embarrassing thing that has happened to me,she did end up with her boyfriend but soon broke up,she was heartbroken, but as a friend I comforted her and support Ed her as a friend. Now it’s 3rd grading and she is actually is having contact with me through chatting on social media, and I think she’s giving signs to me, but I have no idea because I don’t know anything about body language and signs
    And often talks to me quite often she even Laugh’s at my jokes, which is quite odd because I am not a good at making jokes. I’m guessing she’s ready to have a relationship but I’m not sure…

    PS sorry I think I over did it but what the hell…

      It is possible that she has started to develop feelings for you, but there is no way to know for sure. She rejected you years ago, but things still may not have changed yet. Since it embarrassed you significantly to ask her out before, you have to decide if you are ready to take that risk by asking her out again now. Are you ready to take that risk?

      Because of her words and actions, you can be sure that she has feelings for you. Spend additional time with her. Share your thoughts and ideas as often as possible, and she will likely do the same. The more that the two of you speak with each other and spend time together, the closer that you will become. Try to go on a nature walk with her, as that will increase your emotional and intellectual attachment. Best of luck!

    Hi, so there is this girl and she asked out my friend. He said no cause he isn’t the dating type. After that she hung out more with me. I often walk her to class. And a fair few times she has hugged me, used me as a head rest, held my hands to keep hers warm and one instance had me carry her bridal style. But I’ve always found that she is a lot more interested with said friend. The problem is that I like being around her, and can accept if this won’t go anywhere, but how should I proceed?

      If you believe that your friendship with her will terminate because she is interested in your friend, then share your feelings with her. If you feel that she is not interested in you but that she may eventually in the future, then spend more time with her. Whatever you do, be sure to remain mindful of your feelings and your life. If you determine that you don’t want to only be her friend any more, then take action. Whatever you do, share your feelings with her directly and honestly. This will answer all of your questions that you may have. Remain positive and enjoy life, Rob!

      It is possible that he has feelings for you and it is possible that he is uncertain about his feelings. Continue to speak with him if he remains receptive to you. He may want to develop a relationship with you, so try to catch his eyes and speak to him when you are able. If he continues to be unresponsive, then there may be many reasons why he can not develop a relationship with you. Remain positive and enjoy life, Kay!

      If the two of you are still speaking, then it is likely that he is interested in you. If he has been speaking about love to you and has also been attempting to spend time with you, then it is almost certain that he has feelings for you. If you want to develop a relationship with him, then speak with him directly and honestly about your feelings for him. If he shares your feelings, then you know that you can move forward with your relationship.

      When you stopped speaking to him, he may have assumed that you were no longer interested. It is also that he was not interested in being anything more than a friend, and your lack of communication made him less inclined to pursue the friendship. Either way, you should probably start talking to him again if you ever want to be friends. If you cannot bring yourself to do it, try talking to some attractive guy that you don’t like, and the practice will hopefully make you more relaxed when you talk to your crush.

      Hopefully, your crush will realize how great you guys could be together. Although, if he spends his time mocking you now, he probably is not the type of guy that you would want to date. Good luck and I hope that everything ends up working out for you!
