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.

talk-to-him

  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.

    One of my male acquaintances that I knew from in high school tends to stare and smile every time he sees me. Last time I saw him personally, he was walking with a female friend (they both go to the same church) and I was talking to my friends and he called my name out loud twice until he got my attention and he just kept on staring and smiling at me, she was looking at me too smiling like she probably knows something about me, but he just stares and smiles at me like nobody else is important around him whenever he sees me 😳

      He has attempted to get your attention. This may be a sign that he is interested in maintaining a friendship with you. He may also be interested in nourishing a relationship with you. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Perhaps you will find benefit by speaking with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Mikayla!

      His behaviors may be indications that he is aware that you are interested in him. He may also have feelings for you. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Spend additional time with him in person, as this will strengthen your relationship. Have a great day, Braelyn!

    Hi
    I have liked this guy since 6th grade, and right now which is 7th grade.
    My friends use to bother him last year and shit but my friends this year don’t do anything to make it seem like I like him.
    But what did happen this year and last year is that he found out that I like him. Last year he found out because my friends where being to obvious and this year because my friend decided to just tell him. After he found out he would just stare at me and sometimes I would catch him and he would look away or we would make eye contact and I would break it. He did this a little bit too before he found that I liked him but after he found out he just started staring at me more!, he confuses me some much because he told my friends from last year that he doesn’t like me and told my best friend this year that he doesn’t like me that way.!. I have told a friend this and they said that it’s probably because he wants me to ask him or tell him instead of my friends or that he’s just recently figuring out his feelings and dosen’ Know how to respond/ react to it but I’m really not sure. I need some help.

      He has shared his thoughts and feelings with your best friend. This may be because he is not comfortable speaking through your friend. His feelings may grow in the future. For now, determine what you want for your future without him. If he speaks with you in the future, then ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with him. Have a great day, Anon!

    After I finally told my crush that i liked his smile and the way he dressed he has been staring at me even more like okay i was the one staring and then he did it and yeah like even when we paired up for a class project we both couldnt come up with anything lol and when we did he was watching me write ahaha my heart was racing. Even before class we ran into each other at the library and he sat next to me while taking pics from a book for his art class and not once did he ignore me. I wish i could have said bye though once i went back to my seat😓

    Hi,
    There’s this new guy that I’ve developed a crush on in 8th grade and he seems to like me. I catch him staring at random times and he either looks away really quick or stares deeply into my eyes. His pupils are dialated and when I say his name, I can see he gives me his full attention. But there’s this girl.. I heard her talking in choir about him to a friend, saying that he liked her and she liked him. I didn’t believe it at the time but I guess it was true because I saw her flirting with him in the hallway and he wore her headband later at lunch. He’s a nice, funny, and good guy. She’s a jerk and a pretender. I know the next time she has a even bigger crush she’ll dump him for that other guy. I actually love him and I want the best for him. I was really heartbroken when I found out, but right now I don’t want him to suffer the same thing. He’s blind and can’t see past what she pretends to be. We aren’t that close and if I say something to him. He’ll find out I like him and it will get into a huge mess like last year which I don’t want to get into. I’m confused, heartbroken, and sad. I’m really need help.

      His behaviors may be indications that he is interested in nourishing a relationship with you. He may be interested in developing a relationship with her as well. Take this time to determine what you want for your future. If they are in a relationship, do not attempt to harm their relationship. If he is single, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Anon!

            Do not attempt to damage their relationship. Continue to share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. If they are not compatible, then their relationship will fail. If he is interested in maintaining a relationship with her, then you may want to focus on your other social relationships at this time. Have a great day, Marinette!
