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.

So in sixth grade I had this crush on a girl and her name was Olivia and I had the BIGGEST crush on her. And we would always share these “longing stares” at each other or that could just be me, and we were on the same basketball team so we would talk a lot and what not, but anyway she left at the end of the school year. And I finally worked up the courage a few months ago to text her and I texted her and she replied and we talk about every week or so up until now. But I don’t know if I should tell her that I like her???? Should I tell her???? I’m so conflicted!!

So I had a crush on this guy and I liked him for some time them we became friends. With the bad luck I have I moved the next year. At my new school I didn't really like anyone until the one guy came to my school in the middle of the year. He was cute and I liked him. Now I'm in 6th grade still liking him but I can't contact him because I don't have his social media. But with the bad luck I have I'm going to move soon and I might not see him again. This is why my life sucks

There's this boy. He has beautiful dark curly hair, light olive skin, and beautiful, I mean beautiful brown eyes. He's giving me mixed signals. I told my friend I might like him and she was like What?! She thinks he's sort of wierd since he is sort of gothic. But I like how he makes me laugh and his laugh makes me smile. One time, his sort of friend,( my frenemy) told him to tell her his crush. He said it was a girl at the back. Me, my friend, and a couple of other people were in the back. He said it was a girl with brown eyes. Me and my friend both had brown eyes. The rest of the girls in the back had blue or green. But then he said he thought that the girl was white at first and I have dark caramel skin. But then before he said that, I caught him looking at me. But my friend looked sort of white but it wasn't her. It was a girl who was also my friend. Sometimes, he says he has two crushes, the girl and someone else. I keep thinking its me because he does some of the things on the list to me. Sometimes I think he hesitated to say it was me and said someone else. One time I asked him if he was crazy, he said very and my friend behind me said crazy for you. I turned around and almost blushed though my friend didn't know I liked him. I need HELPPPPP!!!!

So, I have this crush. At first we were friends. I thought he wasn't my type. But then I got to know him. He made me laugh and his eyes are this really pretty and enticing brown. If you stare at them for a long time, they start to look really light. Anyway, when we talk, i try to act cool and casual. But he has a crush on my friend, even though she's not intrested. I see him stare at me and I stare back but then I feel my heart beat faster so I look away. Then, he always ask me for my pencils. And whenever we accidently touch in math, he instanly apologizes. When I was crying on the bus, he asked if I was ok, which he never does to anybody. I'm just soooooo CONFUSED!!

Uggh. Okay so basically last year i met this super insanely cute guy on a school field trip and a few days later one of his friends asked my friend if I liked him. And then at lunch/“recess” he told me he like me and I told him I liked him back. It was really shocking for me BC HE was the first guy to every openly openly have crush on me. We sat together at lunch for the rest of the school year. On the last day of school I gave him a crocheted heart I made. We stayed in touch (sort of) throughemail over the summer. Then in about Agust one of his friends told me that he wanted to wait until the school year to talk to me. SO I took that as he didn’t like me anymore and I texted him to make sure. He said that he didn’t want to make things awkward but he didn’t like me anymore. When really he did actually still like me he just thought that I didn’t like him anymore. SORRY This is so confusing. ANWAys, thought i had gotten over him but I actually have like him this entire time. And now apparently he likes this other girl who is SUPER popular and all of the guys think she is really hot and she looks good when she is doing everything. I REALLY don’t know what to do. I cry myself to sleep almost every night just thinking about him. The funny thing is that ive gotten my heart broken and I have never even been in a relationship or on a date. PLZzzz give me advice!!

My crush and I have had a rough start... I was new in town and we shared back to back classes and had to sit next to each other, I'm a very shy person and never starts conversations. But, I met one of their friends and started to hang out around them. In the beginning, it was very difficult to see if they even thought of me as a friend, They had a partner in the beginning who also happened to be my friend, But, They had broken up with them after a month of me being there,

They became distant and stopped talking to me. I had thought since mt Friend had broken up with them that they were mad at me! In return, I stopped talking to them for two weeks, they eventually apologized and said that it was wrong for them to act like that and that they shouldn't have taken it out on me. We grew closer and the flirting grew intense,

Their friends started to make fun of them when they were around me, But, I still wasn't sure! Then one day they were acting off. They told me they had found the note I had written... The problem is I hadn't written anything! So, I, of course, asked to see it.

They said to wait for them outside, So, I waited... But, after a couple of minutes, I decided to go ahead and start walking to lunch. Before I could make it down the stairs they burst out and started running to catch up. All the while they were apologizing for keeping me waiting. and didn't see the step. They tripped and feel down the stairs! I laughed but went to see if they were ok. They were so flustered and fidgety.

They eventually gave me the note. It wasn't my handwriting... But theirs! I didn't have my contacts in so I put it in my pocket, They seemed to get angry and 💗ed it and stormed away! I was so confused as to why they were so angry with me!

I found out... From their very angry friend that they were trying to ask me out! I was shocked! They had thought I had rejected them! The problem is that I was leaving to go back home. My stay was only for a little bit and I didn't get a choice if I go back or not.

They had gotten detention with me because they had skipped school for two days. We sat there in silence and it was torment. They kept on looking at me then looking away. They finally asked me if the rumors were true... Was I leaving or not.

I had wanted to lie... Bady! But I didn't want their last memory of me as a liar who can't face their problems... I told them they were true, And the look on their face was awful. They looked so sad that it hit me hard,

I had one more day left to go. I was freezing! I had forgotten a coat and it was in the upper forties. I and my small group have gone outside for a free period. And I was shaking. Someone came from behind me and threw something in my lap. My friend said it was my crush!

I looked down to see their hoddie with a small envelope. I was shocked!! I looked for them but they weren't there! I couldn't find them for the rest of the day, But, The envelope said it all. It read, "This is just something to remember me by"

I haven't seen them since but it was a very dramatic experience

thank you for reading... is good to get it off my chest.

He has done many of these things. We don't talk a lot, which is my fault.He has given me many opportunities to continue or initiate a conversation but I haven't because I feel like I would bother him. We are part of the same group of friends. Our group consists of: him and me, his two best friends and my childhood friends. His friends ship as together and one of them even married us? Idk. He talks about other girls, but he doesn't talk kindly about them. He seems to be acting more carefully around me.. he's generally a very kind person.. it's just that whenever he does something he'll ask for my permission? For example he wanted to touch my hair and he did, but then he realised he hadn't asked me and suddenly pulled back. He asked me and I said it was okay. He touched it again and said it looked very soft. Yeah. Fun stuff. He also gets so excited when he sees me draw something- he compliments everything I draw.. it makes me really happy, especially when I'm doubting myself. Jmgotkejfo I don't know. This whole pandemic has given me a lot of time to think and I don't know if that's good for meee.
