Knowing a person’s deepest feelings is difficult, and when it comes to dating, trying to figure out if someone really has a crush on you can be pretty confusing.
Have you ever wondered if someone has a crush on you? Does the person you like secretly like you too? Here we have put together a guide to help you if you can no longer find your way around with your husband/wife. Recognizing these signs can help you read between the lines properly.
Having a crush can be exciting, thrilling, but also scary. But it can be confusing to figure out if someone really likes you or if they’re just being friendly. What makes it worse is the fact that a secret crush is supposed to be kept a secret… a secret.
But is there something about this person that makes you wonder if they’re just being weird or if they really want to date you? Unfortunately, we cannot read minds. But we can use some psychological tricks to look for subtle signs that can clear our doubts.
Psychology says that no matter how hard we try to hide our feelings, we behave and act differently around people we like. Since you can’t just ask someone if they have feelings for you, today we’re going to share some science-backed signs that someone might be secretly attracted to you.
So here are the signs that someone has a secret crush on you:
1. They act strange around you
Your secret admirer can be nervous, fidgety, and restless when you’re around. He or she may also avoid eye contact with you or talk to you. Research has shown that falling in love can lead to serious anxiety.
2. They secretly stare at you
Your secret admirer may be staring at you while you’re distracted or not looking. But they can also quickly look away when you look at them. According to researchers, secret staring is a sign that you’re attracted to someone.
3. Your body language is a definite sign
They may seem more confident or shy when you’re around. They may stand differently, repeatedly grab their hair, blush, speak faster, imitate you, and stare at you with dilated pupils. Studies show that we tend to use dominant and overt body language when trying to get the attention of someone we like.
4. They try to be around you
Psychologists assume that we seek closeness and closeness from the person we love. They can approach you physically or pretend to bump into you and start a conversation.
5. They free new ways of communication
Your secret admirer will always be looking for ways to get in touch with you and engage in interesting or even pointless conversations. They will try to spend more time with you, either by talking to you in person, on the phone, via text, or even on social media. Studies have found that “love talk” over phone calls and social media can help you build relationships.
6. They are always smiling
When someone has feelings for you, they can’t help but smile every time they see you. Researchers have found that the “affiliative smile,” which conveys emotional attachment, is linked to “lip clenching.” They may even break out in nervous laughter if you crack a joke.
7. You pay close attention
They’re always the first to notice even the slightest change in your appearance, give compliments, and listen to you with their undivided attention. Research shows that we pay more attention to people we like and remember trivial things about them.
8. They share personal experiences
They can confide in you about their personal problems and deepest secrets because they feel emotionally close to you . Psychology shows that we tend to only share secrets with those we feel close to.
These are just some of the subtle signs that someone might be in love with you. There may be more signs that your crush is — like
- attention seeking
- trying to look cool
- be clumsy
- To help you
- make fun of you or
- to make you laugh
Yes, some of these signs may not make it seem the most sensible, but neither can our feelings.
We can’t hide our feelings
Falling in love can be fun and scary at the same time. We’re not always in control of them, and that can make someone look stupid. Although crushes are usually short-lived, some of them can develop into true love.
So if you think someone has a secret crush on you and you like him or her too, you should take the first step and tell him or her how you feel.
You never know when a simple infatuation can turn into a loving, lasting relationship.
