Done with research and tons of personal experience, this list (not quiz!) will cover almost every single sign out there! But of course, I'm only human, so I know I probably missed a few (and there are sooo many more out there). But all the major ones are here! Have fun, and see if your crush displays any of these! Good luck!

    They suddenly act different toward you. They might be shyer or more outgoing, but you will notice a difference in behavior. Keep an eye out, as it might be subtle - especially if you don't see your crush often.

    They stare at you. If this happens once, they may have been daydreaming. Twice, you caught their eye. Three times, they have noticed you. The key to r
    They stare at you. If this happens once, they may have been daydreaming. Twice, you caught their eye. Three times, they have noticed you. The key to remember is, never doubt patterns.

    Even if they don't stare, they might not be able to help but glance at you, even if you're not looking. It can be very fast and hard to notice. An example of how they might do it is, pretending to look up at the clock, and their eyes land on your face for a brief moment. They might also do something like pretending to scan the room, just to make casual eye contact with you for a split second.

    Their eye contact/gaze lingers on you just a little longer than normal.

    They randomly say hi.

    They make the most random comments, like, "Can I borrow a pencil," "Did you watch the game last night?," or, "It's so cold in this room!" just to be able to say something to you.

    They start a lot of conversations. If you find them coming up to you at least every once in a while, they'd probably like to talk to you more often. Watch out for the types who like to socialize with everyone, though.

    They're comfortable holding prolonged eye contact when speaking to you. This is pretty indicative of fondness.

    Eventually, they'll open up and tell you secrets about themselves (ones not even their best friends might know), or talk freely about deeper subjects, like their future (huge sign!), or family.

    They look deeply into your eyes. You can just tell it's a different form of eye contact.

    They seem more comfortable around you in general, even if you barely know each other.

    They smile a lot around you, even for no reason. If it's a real smile, their whole face will light up and their eyes will crinkle. The more their
    They smile a lot around you, even for no reason. If it's a real smile, their whole face will light up and their eyes will crinkle. The more their eyes crinkle, the happier they are. If they smile with their teeth showing (boys especially, because they biologically stop doing this by age 5 unless they are really happy), they definitely like you - in the worst case as good friends.

    Their back is arched when they are around you. I even catch myself doing this every single time my crush is around. It's a subconscious way of trying to appear more confident. If they arch their back when you arrive, this is a very powerful sign. People tend to arch their backs when they feel happy. Have you ever seen a sad person not slouching?

    Their feet (or at least one foot) point at you all the time. Even if they're not facing you, they'll usually have one foot pointed in the nearest direction to you.

    They'll face you all the time. Even if they're in conversation and perpendicular to you, they'll face you slightly.

    They say random things like, "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Birthday."

    They know random things about you that you never told them, like your dog's name that only your friends know, or your birthday that you never said out loud in front of everyone.

    They remember everything you say. No, it's not their amazing memory. They just like you a lot.

    They sometimes brush against you "accidentally."

    They seem embarrassed when you bump into them by accident.

    They're really shy/nervous or outgoing in a conversation with you. Signs of nervousness besides classic blushing, stammering, giggling, and looking away include foot tapping and fidgeting. They might not tap their foot if their weight is evenly distributed on it, though. Bonus sign - when I'm standing in a conversation with someone, I catch myself crossing one ankle behind the other when I'm really nervous.

    They walk close to you as they pass, in an effort to get your attention.

    Their pupils dilate after a few seconds of talking to you. The bigger their pupils, the more they fancy you. Or their eyes might "sparkle" b
    Their pupils dilate after a few seconds of talking to you. The bigger their pupils, the more they fancy you. Or their eyes might "sparkle" because of the bigger pupils reflecting more light. Make sure the room isn't dim, though, when you test this out. Bonus fact: People's pupils dilate when they're excited or thinking about something stimulating. On the contrary, if they dislike something they see, their pupils will constrict to a small pinpoint. Our pupils also dilate slightly when we see a good friend.

    Above: Normal VS. I like you.

    They stick around - not too close, not too far away. You might catch them suddenly sitting a few lunch tables away, or always standing 10 feet behind you while everyone is waiting in the hall for the first bell.

    Their friends, whom you never knew before, suddenly act nice to you, or start to giggle around you.

    They're intently focused on you and nothing else when you're talking. If it's in a group, it's an even better sign.

    They touch you - i.e., they sit or stand so your shoulders/knees touch, or they touch your arm when you make a joke.

    Their best friend is giving you looks. You get vibes that they're checking you out. Or their best friend might try to get to know you.

    They give you compliments, especially sincere ones.

    They mirror your body language. You fidget with a pencil; they look down at their desk and fidget with their fingers. You touch your hair; they touch theirs. You cross your legs, they cross theirs. It doesn't have to be exact (as in example one), but you get the idea. This stems from a subconscious desire to be more like you. Studies also show we like people who mirror us more, because we perceive them as having the same thoughts and views as we do. So, a good way to build rapport with someone would be to mirror them, very subtly. Don't copy EVERYTHING, and wait a few seconds before you mirror.

    They might ask, "How was your day?" In other words, they're interested in how things are going for you.

    They bite their lip when talking to you.

    If you are the same gender, they openly discuss their sexuality, casually toss it up, hint at it, or even say it to your face.

    They lean in when you speak and when they're next to you.

    On the contrary, they might lean really far away due to self-consciousness. You never know what their excuse might be - maybe they have bad breath, or are just truly shy.

    One day they're friendly; the next, they're cold and distant. They over-analyzed how friendly they were yesterday, so tomorrow they might seem closed-off to compensate.

    They go out of their way to avoid you. This means they either really hate you or really like you. If they like you, their body language will say so. They could also do things like only walking past your desk when you get up, or not walking past your locker in passing period, even though it's the short way. And remember, no one can hide a crush forever, no matter how hard they try.

    They lick their lips. Their nervousness is making their mouth produce less saliva.

    After talking to you/saying hi/interacting, they will become hyperactive. This is caused by a rush of hormones, and you'll notice yourself doing this, too. They might suddenly start being loud and outgoing, or just more energetic in their environment.

    They look up and down at you from a distance, or even from close by.

    If they look at you from far off and look down, this might indicate a sense of loss. They feel like you don't like them, especially if you've been ignoring them. Or they might miss you.

    They break eye contact downward. Catch their gaze in totally random, unexpected situations. If they like you, they will look down. This is because they feel intimidated or submissive - in a good way. However, sometimes they'll break eye contact to the side, if that's quicker. Pay attention to how you break your eye contact in a given situation. Does it match theirs? Bonus: Eye contact broken sideways means they're neutral, eye contact broken up means they hate you, or they're trying extra, extra hard to cover up their feelings (this might be accompanied by a slight eye roll).

    They make "gravity-defying" movements. Does the foot pointed at you have its toes pointing up in the air? Do their eyebrows go up when talki
    They make "gravity-defying" movements. Does the foot pointed at you have its toes pointing up in the air? Do their eyebrows go up when talking to you? These gravity defying moves show happiness, like when a soccer player throws their hands up in the air after a goal!

    They ask lots of questions because they want to get to know you.

    They groom themselves in your presence - touching their hair, fixing their shirt, etc. - even if they're next to you or presenting for the whole class.

    They make strong eye contact.

    They're overly apologetic. They might say "I'm sorry" instead of mumbling "sorry," or add emphasis ("I'm SO sorry.") Or they could also be shy and just say "sorry" normally.

    They use your name a lot. We tend to like people who use our name more. With people we like, we also tend to use their name more. Or they could just be one of those name-using people - but hey, at least that means they don't hate you.

    They try to be funny or to make you laugh.

    They laugh at your stupidest jokes. They're trying to please you and at the same time ease tension.

    Their body language might be closed off at first due to nervousness (crossed arms, for example). If they truly like you, they'll eventually ease up. Other signs of tensed-up body language around a crush are duck lips (they subconsciously want to kiss you, maybe not literally right now, but hopefully in the future), pigeon toes (toes pointing inward means they're smitten; aka, they like you), and gripping the wrist (shows nervousness. The further up their forearm, the more nervous they are. Gripping the other hand is also closed body language, and can signal nervousness, too).

    Girls will constantly cross their ankles when sitting down with you. This shows nervousness, but also makes it harder to escape, therefore she wants to stay.

    Blushing. This one might take longer for some people, but you should notice it within 30 seconds of talking to someone.

    Fast breathing. Their heart is pounding; their mind, racing. They can't really control this one, since they feel so stressed out sitting next to you. They might breathe normally if they're literally talking to you, though, since no one breathes rapidly while speaking. You might notice the slightest increase in respiration, however.

    If they walk with you, they'll adjust their pace to match yours. They won't lag behind or speed up.

    Just because they like someone else doesn't mean you're through - especially if they display some of these signs. Their crush might not even exist; you might be their second crush; or there's always the chance that they could break up with their gf/bf. If they are dating, though, don't intentionally try to ruin it. But if you really do want them, and not for revenge of any sort on anyone, and honestly think you can make them happier than they are now, here's what you should do. Get to know them, show them your personality, and now they have a choice. Then you can rest assured knowing you gave it your best, no matter the outcome.

    They show up at places where you are. They join the newspaper club, go to your school soccer game, or walk the long way to class just to see you.

    They always have their back turned AND stand near you. This means they'd like to be approached.

    They drop something near you hoping you will pick it up for them.

    They ask to borrow things like paper and erasers. Bonus points if they ask it like, "Can you do me a favor?" Asking normally is fine too, however.

    They're really nice to you. They say, "Here you go" when handing out graded tests, hold the door, give you gifts - things like that.

    They stand up for you. Very powerful if they're the only one doing it.

    They're very concerned when you get hurt.

    The smile you give them lasts. The longer it does, the more it's likely to signal interest.

    When they make a joke they look at you first. This is a firm of seeking approval.

    They touch their brows often around you. This means that what they just heard appealed to them.

    They tilt their head when talking to you. When women do this, it exposes their vulnerable neck area. When men do this, it shows interest.

    Mentioning you when you're not around means you're on their mind.

    They become interested in your hobbies or seem to know a lot about them.

    They constantly try to get another meeting with you.

    They have nicknames for you. Think about it, would you give someone you weren't interested in a nickname?

    They tease you. This is a form of flirting. Some boys will be really mean to you - but really, they might like you.

    Their body language changes around you.

    A tomboy might act less sporty around you, or a boy might become softer.

    Their tone of voice changes. Men and women lower and raise their pitch, respectively.

    They start to copy your way of speaking. They might mimic your speech rate, use some of your vocabulary, or say a certain word like you do. Interestingly, if you have a slight accent, they will pick up on it. This one takes time, but it will inevitably happen.

    They're careful with their language. If they're known for tossing around expletives, they might suddenly tone it down around you.

    When they do something like score a goal, or shoot a three-pointer in basketball, they'll check to see if you saw it.

    Their nostrils flare when with you. Very subtle.

    They blink a lot, indicating nervousness. You can also notice this in politicians.

    They show off around you.

    Guys will stick their chests out.

    Women expose their wrists and men might roll up their sleeves to show their forearms.

    They'll play with a nearby object, if you know what I mean. They might start doing things like stroking their own thigh subconsciously.

    They act protective, like offering you their coat or hugging you.

    They ask who you like, a lot. They make jokes about your gf/bf. They might compare themselves negatively to your SO because they feel they're not good enough for you. They might feel uncomfortable when the subject is brought up.

    They follow you on social media and like your selfies. Or you might notice they've checked out your account.

    They subconsciously talk louder around you so you will be more likely to notice them.

    They become friends with your friends to try and get closer to you.

    They flirt with someone else and keep checking for your reaction.

    They respond quickly to your texts or wait a little too long before answering (to not seem desperate).

    They ask for your number.

    Guys act more macho and girls act more feminine.

    You've caught them staring at your chest or butt. If you're a guy, arms also. If you're a girl, they might have also been staring at your legs. Both genders may also look at their crush's lips if they're nearby (hint, hint).

    They just give "hints."

    They look at you when you enter the room, or right before they leave it.

    They suddenly tense up or go quiet around you.

    Lack of eye contact. They never look at you, and in a group, you're the one person they never/rarely look at. They might even go as far as turning away when they know you're staring.

    They come back to you when you leave a conversation for a few minutes.

    Guys sit with their legs spread out. They're being vulnerable to you because they trust you.


    -If they're sitting near you, they'll orient the fingers of their hand toward you.
    -Their friends giggle/whisper when you walk by.
    -Your crush looks down before you walk by. Normally people don't do this, so they're shy about something! Or they might pretend to look right through/past you to cover up their feelings. It doesn't always mean they aren't interested.

HE SAID YES!!! then I ran to my friends and told them they wee like:AHHHHHHHHHHHHH YAYAYAYYAYAYA and I was blushing, and today I wen to Schoo and we hugged bc someone pushed me into him but I fell down the stairs anyways we went to music class and his friend logic came next to me bc we had this big xylophone and we had to do partners. then his friend was next to me then (his name) grabbed him by the shoulder and put him somewhere else I was blushing soooooo badly I knew we were the best ( just so you know we both have a lot in common) and we are dating now and we are maybe planning on kissing at the school dance or on Friday or tomorrow.

So this guy, he gives me a lot of mixed signs. A few days ago i told him i liked him, although he has a GF!!! so i was kind of nervous, because i never really intended to actually tell him yet... i said something that made him figure it out. He'd been asking me who i liked for a few days now, and we were texting again. so anyways. we agreed that we wouldnt make anything awkward and obvious, but he didn't completely follow through. He hasn't told anyone, but he keeps mentioning it out loud. Some of my friends know and it really weird. I feel so embarrassed around him, he'll kind of always find an excuse to bring up what i texted him "yeah" *responding to his question, "is it me who you like?"*.... so yesterday, we were in math class, and two of my friends always do this thing where they take his backpack and put it somewhere else. so i was really distracted talking to them, when i saw him running over and i got nervous and really red and hot, it was only then i realized i was kind of ON his backpack, and i looked up at him and he was TOMATO RED. very very red. like me probably, and he was very awkward when he pointed out i was on his backpack. apart from that, he's been kind of like playfully threatening me (ig) to expose me and tell people what i said.... plus, always responds to my texts, and my friends tease me and ship us. his one friend in our science class (lets call him banana) he's started talking to me more too, and hes kind of nice, banana's also been really talking to me too. so idek know at this point.. what do you guys think? (i am in desperate need for help!!!)

All of these signs are true everytime we are together I always catch him staring at me but we don’t get a chance to be alone since we are in a band type thing together and when he is teaching me and a friend he would focus on me and sit facing me and constantly stare at me whilst only looking and facing my friend to tell her that she is doing good but the majority of the time his attention is towards me

I sit next to him in class. Sometimes he looks at me. I look at him a lot. He also teases me and one time he just said something then i answered quickly but we both made a very long eye contact and idk if he or i was the one that looked away first? I forgot lol. Sometimes I see him looking at me right when i go to look at him. And when we pass in the hallway he sees me then looks away. I'm pretty sure he likes me. Today I was on the bus heading home and theirs boy said someones name i know so i said i know him. then he said that guy was hot lol. But then right after he asked me if the guy i like was hot and this time i actually said yes proudly. I wasn't even shy i don't know why because i'm a shy person.Then he and his friends were just making jokes about me after that. And I think one of them texted him a photo of me and they told him i like him.
I have to sit next to him tomorrow!

Wish me good luck!

Do you guys think he likes me?????

There was a christmas party at my school a few months ago. At the end of the party, I took the subway with one of my friends and the guy I like. Me and my crush where talking when my friend asks me to go to her. He looks up to me and it looked like he didn’t want me to go. I say in a slightly annoyed voice “okay” and I head to my friend. Then I look at him again and he makes this really long and intense eye contact while smiling at me. I blush and smile back. Whiteout interrupting the eye contact or the smiling, he just says out of the blue: “what is wrong with you two?” I just look away and laugh. Another second and I would have melted!!🫠 I keep replaying that moment over and over in my mind, thinking about how great he is……😍😍😍😍

Our class ships us like crazy. They even mix our names: Javierta. Does this mean they noticed something before I did???

he walked down the stairs. usually i try to avoid eye contact so i don't show my feelings, but i couldn't look away like that and at that moment! i was captivated by his eyes and he didn't escape my gaze. he started walking slowly down the stairs looking at me, i broke eye contact because i was talking to my dad on the phone, i had to hide my confusion. after he walked down the stairs, he walked past me. i laugh when i remember that moment!

ok this is insanely embarrasing i feel too old for this but whatever. warning its slightly long.

yeah ok i was reading these signs and thinking of situations where my crushes have done this but really it applies to me mostly LLMFAOO.
ive done most of these to people i like.

im bi and i like a girl and a guy. the girl is absolutely amazing but ive known the guy for longer although i dislike him while having a crush on him. (yeah im stupid i know.).

thing is i cant tell the amount of times ive turned around and seen him looking at me as anything more than his random occasional stare but god . his smile is so cute . his pouts and YEAH i am down bad. and the girl has really pretty freckles and shes just so AWESOME.

to be honest if either of them turned out to ever like me id be happy :)
