Having a crush is both fun and exhausting. It’s fun because liking someone is often fun, but it’s hard because your crush has to notice you too. Here are six things you can do and think about to get your crush to notice you. And hopefully you’ll live happily ever after.
Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not
This may sound obvious, but it’s always good to have a reminder. If you and your crush are to have any chance of becoming a couple, he needs to get to know who you really are – and not someone you pretend to be. If you pretend to like something just because your crush likes it, they’ll soon discover that you’re just faking it. You can tell if a person is passionate or likes something when they talk about it, and you can really tell when they don’t know anything about the subject.
Get out of your comfort zone
To catch your crush, you can’t just sit back and watch life happen, you have to take matters into your own hands if something is going to happen. If you’re shy, you still need to take the bull by the horns and make a connection with your crush. Do you know they like a certain TV show? Watch a few episodes and discuss them with them. Or invite them to some fun event that you think they would enjoy.
Don’t wait for them to come to you
As you’ve probably figured out by now, you can’t just wait for your crush to come to you. If you’ve created opportunities for your crush to come to you but they still don’t take the hint, you have to come to them. Go to them and start a conversation. Yes, it may be awkward and tentative – but at least you’re talking to each other. And it opens up future encounters between you too.
Act like an adult
If your crush texts you – don’t wait to respond! Reply when you have time, even if it means after three seconds. After all, when you have to wait a day for a text yourself, you wonder if they’ve actually been busy for that long or if they’re just playing the game. Hint: definitely option two. You’re not so busy for a day that you don’t have time to reply to a text. So just ignore all the “rules” and go for it.
Don’t let your nerves take over your personality
Yes, you’re nervous and excited when you’re around your crush, but don’t let that stop you. If you want to get your crush to notice you, you need to push your nerves aside and show yourself and who you are. Breathe and be yourself, you’re lovely and super good just the way you are – and your crush will notice if you’re meant to be.
