My Crush Knows I Like Him – Now What?

By on March 1, 2015

So you finally told your crush you like him or uhm your friends or enemies did, now what are you going to do? It depends on whether you think he likes you, or not. The ultimate goal, of course, is to convince him that he does. Whilst sometimes that’s impossible, it’s often just a matter of getting him to notice you in the right way.


Relax and Smile

If at first you feel a little nervous (which is expected!) then try to relax. What he will notice about you is the things any guy will notice about you – your smile, how confident you seem and just in general how much you are enjoying your life. Be happy to be you and he will be happy to be around you. Even if he doesn’t come to fancy you, he can still come to enjoy your company.

If you find yourself getting nervous try thinking about it at home – how will you deal with his presence? Imagine him being there and you going about your day as normal. It may sound silly but sometimes we need a little practice in dealing with our crush.

Don’t Be Clingy

OK, so you might not run up to him and attach yourself to him. Especially if you don’t already know him very well. The point I’m making is that whilst it’s OK stealing glances at him ever so often, he might start getting uncomfortable if you are staring at him all the time when he’s around. Keep it cool. Don’t completely ignore him (that’s equally silly – you want him to notice you after all, how else will he fall for the fabulous you?), but also make sure he doesn’t get uncomfortable around you because you are giving him puppy eyes.

Remember men want to chase, not be chased. It’s sexy showing a little bit of interest and being flirtatious, being comfortable with flirting, but you also have to show you have a life. Show you aren’t intimidated by him knowing how you feel – you’re someone who shows interest to find out if there is interest. But you are too busy living your amazing life to care too much. If he’s interested, that’s great, but if he isn’t, you have more important things to do than waiting around. By showing you are happy, you don’t need his approval and that your life doesn’t stop in its tracks whenever he’s around, he will soon start trying to win you over if he has an interest.


If He Shows Interest, Take It Easy

When a guy you like shows interest in you, chances are you will get as excited as excited can be. Of course you will! Don’t throw yourself at him if he does though. Play it cool. After all, you are vetting him. Is he working hard enough to win you over? Having interest in someone means you have a certain level of attraction. It doesn’t mean you know if you would actually like to be dating them. He could prove to be a terrible friend, or have no clue of how to make you happy. Take your time to find out if he’s worth it.

Definitively don’t put the rest of your life on hold for him. Don’t answer every text you get immediately. Don’t reschedule you life to go on a date. Clearly show him you have a life you are happy with and if he gets to be part of it then he’s privileged.

Avoid Your Friends Giggling When He’s Around

If all your friends start giggling, pointing at him, or simply staring at him whenever he’s around, chances are he will be freaked out. Whilst some guys like that kind of attention, most don’t. Also, it puts him in a position where he knows how special he is to you. He shouldn’t be special until you find out how well he is going to treat you. Make your friends understand how important it is you that they behave nicely when he’s around.

Talk To Him

For anything to actually happen, you have to eventually talk to him. Take it easy. Start with passing comments and work your way to the point where you have a proper conversation. Show that you are cool around him. If he seems interested be flirtatious, but don’t overdo it. As mentioned earlier – let him work for it.

    So..A couple of months ago..I fell in love with my boy bestfriend and we are really close! We do most of our stuff together until I felt jealous because of him hanging out with my girl bestfriends and because of that feeling I started to be cold and distant around him until I confessed to him that I liked him..I didn’t turn out great and we started to avoid each other for a month until we got close again! Now..He knows that I like him again and I’m getting the feeling that we won’t be able to be as close as we we’re before he knew I liked him again..what should I do?

      It sounds as though the two of you were close and some distance has grown between the two of you. You can choose to attempt to maintain this relationship by spending additional time with him in person. If he is not interested in doing so, then make a decision about what you want for your future without him. You will bring many benefits into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Keylia!

    So like 2 months ago I told my crush I liked him, well I didn’t actually tell him. I wrote a note saying that I liked him. And didn’t talk to me for about a month. So in the past month he has been talking to me. But even before he talked to me, he was like watching me about listening to the things I was saying. And now he talks to me sometimes and his friends act weird around me now. My crush is looking at me and smiling at me, he bites at his lip when he’s watching me and he shows off around me. One time, he like stepped on my foot, and it hurt, then a few minutes later he was like did I step on your foot? I said yea, and said I’m so sorry. Then I was walking with my friend and he was with his, he stepped on my foot and he put his hand on my shoulder like he was gonna fall. My friends think he did this on purpose, but I don’t know. So do you think he likes me back.

      His behaviors are indications that he is interested in nourishing a relationship with you. It is likely that his feelings grew for you after he learned about your feelings toward him. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish your relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Madison!

          Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Share your hobbies and interests with him. Give him a chance to share himself with you as well. There are many options available to you. Have a great day, Madison!
