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.

    Okay so here’s the situation…. my crush has liked me since 9th grade were in 10th grade now…. and at first I thought okay he’s just looking at my body or something not important… until I realized he looks at me A LOT…. everytime were in the hallway or in class or any opportunity really. And my thing is, I know he likes me and I also know he knows I like him but the reason we aren’t dating is probably because I’m not the “typical ” type of pretty skinny girl that he (being on the more popular side of hs) would typically be seen with and I’m pretty sure the reason it hasn’t gone anywhere or the reason he hasn’t made the first move is because he’s worried about everybody’s opinions on who he dates…. and me having my feelings constantly shattered by the fact that it’s not gonna go anywhere is damaging my emotions and takes focus out of my grades and my life… I can’t stop thinking about him!!!!! And everytime he looks at me it’s like JUST DATE ME ALREADY. I need advice because I’m pretty sure my friends don’t believe me because again he’s not the typical guy to like me… I’m alone with my thoughts and overthinking and I’m going crazy because I don’t know what to do HELP

      If he likes you and won’t date you because you don’t fit his image, then he isn’t worth your time anyway. If he hasn’t made a move because he doesn’t like you, then you can’t make him suddenly like you. Either way, the best thing you can do is move on. If he decides to become more mature and stop caring about his image in the future, then he can always make a move then. Good luck!
