They like me back. They don’t like me back. Hmm… does my crush like me back? Sounds familiar? What kind of a question is this, right?

We spend half of our lives wondering whether another human being we have a crush on likes us back or not.

When we really like someone, we can’t help ourselves but think about them almost 24/7. You scroll through their profile in hope that you’ll learn something new about them.

Unfortunately, you realize that you already visited their profile 27,940 times so far, and you know all their posts and every single detail on their pictures by heart. (It would be funny if it wasn’t true.)

One of my friends has gone one step further and literally “invented” a method for attracting your crush.

She would open the chat window of her crush and just stare at it and imagine that he’s texting her.

She believed that visualizing things (the Law of attraction) would help her attract her crush and get him to eventually text her.

Again, it would be funny if it wasn’t true because that ACTUALLY happened.

Needless to say how speechless I was when I realized that her method is actually working and it’s not some random method that she came up with due to being desperate and crazy about her crush. (Okay, maybe it is, but still, it seems like it’s working, so I dare you to try it for yourself, too.)

But, before doing that, it would be wise to first find out whether your crush likes you back (or not).

If you’re not sure whether they like you back, then staring at a blank chat window would just be a waste of time, right? Right.

They like me back. They don’t like me back…

How do you tell if your crush likes you back?

How do you tell if your crush likes you back? The easiest way to know if your crush likes you back or not is simply by asking them, right?

I understand that I should have put in brackets next to the previous sentence… something like (reserved only for the bravest ones).

Asking directly whether our crush likes us or not is one of the bravest things one can do in their lifetime.

Let’s not fool ourselves. Doing this is TOTALLY out of the question, so we need to find some other safe and less embarrassing alternative.

The best and safest way to tell if your crush likes you back is by paying attention to their body language and overall behavior.

When we really like someone, we’re mostly paying attention to our accelerated heart rate, whether we’re blushing or have sweaty hands, and we get extra careful about not saying anything stupid in front of them.

Having a crush on someone can be really exhausting, wouldn’t you agree?

By paying so much attention to not embarrassing ourselves in front of them, we forget to observe their behavior and body language.

So, next time you’re talking to your crush or being near them, pay attention to the following signs that mean your crush likes you back:

  • Your crush becomes nervous around you
  • They can’t help themselves but smile whenever they look at you
  • Their eyebrows lift
  • They ask you for an opinion
  • They share their secrets with you
  • They’re interested in your love life and in your life in general

You know that your crush likes you back if they constantly initiate contact with you and find excuses only to be near you. If you know your crush’s friends, pay attention to their behavior as well.

If your crush likes you, their friends will start teasing you and act like you two are a couple (happened to me multiple times).

Actually, I really hate when that happens because I get even more embarrassed than I was before.

When other people start teasing you about liking someone, you have no other option than to admit it or act indifferent (the same goes for your crush, assuming they like you back).

I would also like to add this one often neglected sign, and that is YOUR INTUITION. Whenever I felt confused about someone, it turned out that I was right because that guy had mixed feelings for me.

Whenever I assumed that my crush liked me back, it turned out to be true.

If you only pay attention to your intuition, it can tell you so much about everything without you ever needing to overthink.

Our intuition tells us what our souls know.

The thing with human beings is that we often ignore what our body and mind are telling us if we’re not satisfied with their messages.

You might not be very good at deciphering all those signs your crush likes you, and that’s where your intuition comes to the rescue.

Listen to that little voice inside your head telling you whether they like you or not and you’ll know the truth.

What to do if your crush likes you back?

If you have just found out that your crush likes you back (or when you find it out in the future), congratulations! The worst part is behind you.

Now that you know they like you back, you can either continue living your best life or do nothing about it and wait for them to eventually express their feelings for you. JUST KIDDING.

What I’ve learned from past experiences is that doing nothing about your crush is the biggest mistake you can ever make in your life.

Imagine that both you and your crush like each other, but both of you are too anxious to admit it.

Sometimes, you have to be the first one to make a move, and there’s nothing wrong with that. As a matter of fact, if you know your crush likes you back, there’s nothing you should be afraid of, right?

You’ll just let them know that you’re on the same page, which is GREAT.

Without further ado, here is some great advice from the list of things to do when your crush likes you back:

  • Tell them you like them back ASAP
  • Be flirty with them
  • Be confident

“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make.” – Unknown

Exactly. So, the most important thing to do ASAP is to tell your crush that you like them back. If you wait too long, they might think that you’re not interested.

If you wait too long to tell them how you feel, you might regret the chance you didn’t take. Trust me, you don’t want that to happen.

So, forget about all those foolish tips where they tell you to play hard to get, to ignore your crush in order to catch their attention, and similar.

If you do any of these things, it will only make them even more confused.

How in the world can your crush know that you like them if you’re ignoring them? How in the world will you ever be together if both of you are unwilling to make the first move?

Sometimes, you have to be the one who gathers the courage and approaches that one special person you really like.

This article is not about all those sneaky games that they tell you to play with your crush in order to make them like you.

It’s about observing your crush’s behavior and having an active role in your own life!

This article is not about how to get your crush to like you back by dressing to impress or doing all those things that you already know how to do.

It’s about reminding you of the importance of acting before it’s too late.

It’s about helping you to gather the courage and show your crush how much you like them. It’s about acting and not pretending that you’re not interested only to make them interested and similar.

It’s about being who you are and doing what you believe in. So, if you really like them, then there’s nothing you should be afraid of, and by expressing your feelings, you’ve got nothing to lose.

You will either realize that they like you back and enter a long-awaited romantic relationship with them or you will continue living your best life knowing that everything happens for a reason and waiting for the one who is meant for you. Either way, you win.
