Has someone caught your attention lately? Do you get insomnia thinking about this person all night, and spend all day daydreaming about your first date? You probably can’t concentrate at school or work because this person keeps popping into your head. The problem is that you’re not sure if all these distractions are worth it, because this person might not feel the same way about you.
When you fall in love with someone, it can cause not only heartache, but also headaches – especially if your crush doesn’t even know you exist. You feel butterflies in your stomach when your paths cross, but he/she doesn’t even give you a glance. That’s frustrating and discouraging, isn’t it?
Here are 11 ways to act around your crush:
If there’s one thing you should take away from this, it’s to always just be yourself. If your crush doesn’t like you for who you are, then it’s time to find someone else to crush on because you should never change for someone else.
Tell the truth
Don’t make up outrageous lies about yourself to try to get them to like you. Tell the truth about yourself and your feelings and beliefs.
Give them compliments
Everyone loves to be complimented! Say something nice to them and they will automatically like you. Just make sure that the compliment is sincere and you are not just complimenting them for the sake of complimenting them.
Ask them about themselves
People love to talk about themselves. Give your crush the opportunity to tell you about themselves by asking them what they are passionate about or what they like to do.
Don’t give too much away
When you have your first conversation (or second or third or fourth) with your crush, don’t share too many intimate details about your life and family. That might scare them off. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t tell your crush anything about yourself. Just remember: some things should remain a secret.
If you look good, you feel good. It’s a cliché, but it’s so true. You don’t have to go overboard with the hairstyling, makeup, and clothing, but a little mascara and a little lip gloss will make your eyes sparkle and your pout look kissable enough to be irresistible. For the guys, a clean haircut, an enchanting perfume and clean outfits should be used. Besides, you will feel better and more confident if you put a little effort into your appearance.
Hang out in places where they often are.
If you know they spend a lot of time at a particular coffee shop, mall, or park, try to make that place your new hangout. Be careful not to follow them from place to place, though, because that would be a bit like stalking them.
Don’t think too much about the future or the next steps.
Consider the possible relationship with your crush step by step. Right now, your only goal should be to get a date with him or her. After that, you can look forward to another date, but try to live in the moment and not think too much about the future.
Have a good sense of humor
Show your sense of humor by laughing at their jokes (laugh with them, not at them) and by making jokes and telling funny stories. If you make your crush laugh, they will definitely want to spend more time with you and even go out with you.
Make it clear that you are single
Sometimes the only reason your crush hasn’t asked you out yet is because he doesn’t know you’re available! Make him realize this by meeting up with your girlfriends or dropping hints that you don’t have anyone to take to an event.
Ask him/her out on a date!
No one can read your mind, so chances are your crush has no idea you’re into them. The best way to make your intentions clear is to bite the bullet and ask him/her out. The worst thing they can say is no, right?
How do you get rid of a crush and stop crushing?
It is best to talk to the person as you would a friend and try to interact with them as you would a normal person, not as you would a true love or romantic partner. Talk to the person and find out if you have anything in common or what is going on in their life.
You may be shocked to find out that they are nothing like you thought they would be. Their morals and ethics may be beneath you. They may be intellectually deficient in conversation. Their lifestyle may be exactly the opposite of what you want your life to be. The worst thing you can do is avoid the person and continue to dream about them. You owe it to yourself to talk to her/him and have a conversation in the real world. If the chemistry isn’t there, you should decide to move on.
