Crushes: You're More Obvious Than You Believe

Crushes aren't just for teens. Adults get them too.

If your crush is on a coworker, neighbor, classmate, or friend, you probably daydream about taking the relationship to the next level. You earnestly believe your crush is your little secret. However, here's a news flash: the signs you're giving out are like a blinking neon light.

While you pine away and plan your next move, here's a playlist of pop, rock, country, and R&B songs about crushing on someone. Enjoy them as you think about your beloved. If you dare, you could even create a customized songlist and send it to your crush to let them know how you feel. Let us know how it turns out!

1. "Treat You Better" by Shawn Mendes

Oh, wow. He says he'll stop time for her.

The narrator in this 2016 pop hit currently sits squarely in the Friend Zone. However, he's looking for a sign from his crush that she wants to take it to the next level. One little problem: she's another dude's girlfriend. But don't fret because this is not a man who is easily dissuaded. Just give him a sign, girl, and don't take too long.

2. "You Belong with Me" by Taylor Swift

A crush can sure make you feel like a teenager, even if you aren't. In this 2009 country song, the only obstacle standing between the teenage narrator and her best male friend is his girlfriend.

Citing common interests in music and a shared sense of personal style and music, Taylor Swift's narrator makes it her mission to convince her love interest that what he's been waiting has been here all along.

3. "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" by Sophie B. Hawkins

This 1992 rock song is 50 shades of awesome and sounds like a great pick up line. The narrator takes a look at that tall drink of water she's been crushing on and paints a dirty little picture of what she'd like to do to him:

Damn, I wish I was your lover
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smilin' and warm
I am everything, tonight I'll be your mother
I will do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed, oh, oh
Open up on the inside, gonna fill you up, gonna make you cry.

4. "Crush" by David Archuleta

The guy in this 2008 pop song has just realized that he's crushing bad. His thoughts are dominated by his sweetie, he's mesmerized by her, and he feels so tingly he thinks it could be love or something like it. He needs to know whether he's alone in this little love affair or if just maybe she feels the same way.

12 Signs That Someone Has a Crush on You

 
 
 
They typically start the conversation.
They listen intently to you.
They always seem to be nearby.
None of your love interests are good enough for you, in their opinion.
You look over and they are frequently staring at you.
They offer you compliments and small gifts.
They change the subject when you talk about other dating partners.
They joke about dating or crazy what ifs. They talk in future tense about the two of you.
They smile at you a LOT, often with a big goofy grin.
They find excuses to touch you or be alone together.
They remember details about you that others don't.
Others tell you that the person likes you.

5. "Stuck Like Glue" by Sugarland

My teenage daughter described a cute crush story in which she and her best friend (a guy) sat listening to this 2010 country song on repeat. The fella had one earbud in his ear and she had the other in hers. Together they belted out the lyrics to one another. But alas, they date other people.

6. "Into You" by Ariana Grande

The narrator in this 2016 pop song is waiting for her crush to make a move. She wants a little less conversation and a little more action. Everybody's watching. Don't choke, Mr.!

7. "Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne

The confident girl in this sassy pop song from 2007 spells it right out. She doesn't like her crush's girlfriend, and time has come for him to find a new one. He deserves better, and she'll give him what he needs.

The narrator then issues him orders. If only it were this easy:

So come over here
And tell me what I wanna hear
Better yet, make your girlfriend disappear
I don't wanna hear you say her name ever again (and again and again).

8. "Crush" by Mandy Moore

In this 2001 pop song, the female narrator is crushing hard on a guy who shares her feelings—but for another girl, not her. Unfortunately, she can't find her backbone yet to let him in on the secret. Therefore, she may be staying in the Friend Zone forever.

9. “Check Yes Or No” by George Strait

If you grew up in a time before cell phones, you probably remember passing those oragami-folded love notes in class. Often, they required check-box answers.

The narrator in this 1995 country song waxes nostalgic about the sweet love notes that he and his wife once passed in elementary school:

Do you love me? Do you want to be my friend?
And if you do, well then don't be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to
I think this is how love goes
Check yes or no.

You never know when a crush can turn in to something more.

10. "Crush" by Yuna (featuring Usher)

There's a mutual crush forming in this 2016 R&B song. Hearts beat a little faster, and the guy tells this lady friend that she's just wasting time with all those other boys.

11. "Clumsy" by Fergie

Most people lose their wits about them when they have a crush. They smile a lot, stare too much, can't find anything to say, and fumble around like they have no thumbs.

This 2007 pop song will remind you of the funny things crushes have said or done. For example, a guy who once had a crush on me turned around after talking to me and walked smack into a telephone pole.

12. "Call Your Girlfriend" by Robyn

Sweedish singer Robyn issues step-by-step instructions to her intended new flame in this very danceable 2010 pop song. You have to admire a woman who knows what she wants, right?

Call your girlfriend
It's time you had the talk
Give your reasons
Say it's not her fault
But you just met somebody new

13. "Beautiful Soul" by Jesse McCartney

The fella in this 2004 pop song claims he just wants his crush and her beautiful soul, but he's also doubting himself a little. He wonders if she's out of his league.

Okay, let's be honest here. In real life, Beauty picks Brad Pitt over the Beast, and Prince Charming picks one of his socialite types rather than Cinderella, the house wench. But it's nice to dream, isn't it?

14. "Girl Crush" by Little Big Town

Hold on. Don't you get all judgmental on me.

If there's one thing this 2014 country ballad is NOT it's typical. The Grammy Award-winning song caused quite a controvery because some fans assumed it was about a lesbian couple.

However, the narrator who is crushing on a girl doesn't want to shag her. She wants everything the other girl has—her long blonde hair, perfume, her lips, and her touch—because they attract the man that she loves. He is the real object of her desire.

15. "I Wanna Be Your Lover” by Prince

Way back in 1979, this chart topper was Prince's first American hit single. It's about a man who yearns to be with his crush and tries to convince her how much better he can treat her than the other men she is accustomed to dating. The narrator doesn't have much money, but he promises to turn his lady love on and be everything she needs.

16. "Yeah Boy" by Kelsea Ballerini

This country song from 2015 was named the best crush song by Radio Disney. Okay, so the song leans young.

The protagonist is entranced by her crush's eyes, and every song on the radio reminds her of him. She wishes he'd wisk her away tonight for a ride in his car and some get-to-know-you-better time.

17. "Can't Fight This Feeling" by REO Speedwagon

A tidal wave of love looms large and threatens to overcome the guy in this 1984 pop song. Yet still he's trying to talk himself into sharing his crush for her. (Don't worry, crushes are often too obvious to stay secrets for long.)

She's been his galpal for awhile, but he's looking at her differently these days. The feeling has become so strong that he just can't hold back.

18. "Fallin' For You" by Colbie Callait

Watch out below because this girl is falling hard for the man in her life. In this 2009 pop song, the narrator is dancing with him and holding his hand but feels tentative about revealing her feelings.

19. "Jessie's Girl" by Rick Springfield

The number one rule of friendship is to keep your hands off each others' significant other. However, the lovesick guy in this classic 1981 pop song can't stop thinking about his best friend's girlfriend. The song was based on a friend named Gary and Gary's girlfriend.

20. "Smile" by Uncle Kracker

Love has done a number on the narrator in this 2009 pop song, and he's gushing with compliments about his crush. She's cooler than the flip side of his pillow and makes him forget how to breathe. In her presence, he loses all composure and becomes like a giddy little girl.

Questions & Answers

  • I have a crush in my school. She's about my age. I want to tell her that I like her since it's our final year in school. However, I don't have the guts to do so. She's smart, kind, and pretty, and I know she's out of my league. Should I forget about my secret crush or just tell her the truth?

    Think about it this way. I know people who went to high school 40 years ago who had a crush on a classmate but never took the chance to express themselves or ask the person out. You don't want to be one of them, do you?

    Since you're both in your last year in school, you need to take the chance while you have it. You don't have to express undying love for her, just ask her out. Just because you may be an unlikely couple doesn't mean you're beneath her.

    If it turns out that indeed she does not share your romantic interest, at least you have her out of your system. You won't be left wondering, "What if?" for the next umpteen decades. Sure, rejection hurts but we've all experienced it and we get over it. Not knowing is so much worse.

  • I want to get closer to my crush, even if it's just as a friend. How can I do that?

    Friendships start when people notice that they have things in common -- ideas, experiences, hobbies, interests, or other friends AND they expect to interact with one another regularly. Thus, you'll need an opportunity to share similarities and develop interpersonal trust through regular contact. That can be via classes, friendship groups, clubs or organizations you both belong to, etc.

    The best chance of doing so is if you have a mutual friend who can include you in the friend group that he hangs out in. You'll have a chance to talk with him and then see if you share common ideas, a sense of humor, interests, etc.

    Be genuine, but befriend a friend of his and you'll find yourself included in the group eventually. If that is absolutely not possible, join a club he's in, take a class he's in or learn about a hobby he's interested in (as long as you're genuinely interested). Start to sit near him if you're already in a class he's in, attend his games if he's in sports (especially if you have other friends on the team who can introduce you?), etc. Show some interest so you'll have something specific to talk to him about. (People love talking about themselves.)

    When I was a teenager, a guy who was crushing on me decided to become best friends with my next door neighbor to get closer to me. They played basketball for hours on my family's basketball hoop. Sometimes I'd go out and talk to him. We ended up dating long-term.

  • My crush is my best friend. Last time I told him he kinda ignored me, but I can’t stand not telling him. But what if he rejects me? What do I do?

    You've already told him once, and it didn't change your relationship. He didn't declare his romantic interest in return. Was this because he genuinely didn't hear you or because he didn't share your romantic feelings? I suspect it was the latter and you may not want to admit it to yourself.

    You need to be honest with yourself about whether this is a one-sided or two-sided love interest. Does he provide any signals to you that he is attracted to you sexually? (For example, he leans in, stands close, touches you a lot, gazes at you, listens like no one else is in the room, etc.)

    If you are confused, have a conversation with him about the mixed signals you're getting when the time is right. Alternatively, introduce the topic by asking if he recalls that time when you confessed a crush on him. Then inquire whether he could ever picture a situation in which you two were more than just friends. You don't have to pour out your emotions because you're asking him how HE feels. You've already revealed your crush on him. He has certainly noticed your goo-goo eyes at him. This will get the issue out in the open.

    It's better to talk about this "elephant in the room" between you than ignore that it's there. If he rejects you, it will no doubt hurt, but you will live through it. We have all been through rejection. It doesn't mean you are defective. It can simply mean you're not the right person for him right now, or logically you're great together but he just doesn't feel sexual chemistry. It's hard to figure out what lights a fire under even our own hearts sometimes. Don't take it personally, and certainly don't undervalue your friendship. Have that conversation so you can either start dating or start processing your feelings and move on emotionally.

  • I met this guy at a party through a mutual friend, and throughout the whole night, we kept calling each other cute. We all went back to his apartment after the party and we just fell asleep together, like cuddled together and that's it. The next morning we started talking about everything and we kept cuddling. Then we kissed multiple times until I said I had to leave, but I don't know if he thinks this was a one-time thing or if he likes me?

    That's so romantic and refreshing to hear. You need to follow up on this potential love connection. Here are two options:

    1) Luckily, you have a mutual friend. Talk to him or her about Mr. Snuggles. Ask whether he's mentioned you since, whether he's seeing someone (let's hope not!), if this is his normal behavior, how you should interpret the night's events, etc. You might even ask for your mutual friend's help in getting you two together again.

    2) Contact your snuggly fella and ask him if he cuddles like that with every girl he meets or was there something special going on between you? You might joke with him about whether he was feeling especially cold and that's why he was snuggling with you or was it some other reason? Tell him you enjoyed your conversation and you wish you could have stayed longer to talk more with him. Suggest that maybe you could continue the conversation over coffee or pizza sometime.

    Good luck, and let us know how this works out by leaving a follow-up comment in the Comments Section of the playlist.

  • I want to tell my crush how much I love him, but I am very awkward and afraid of damaging our friendship. He already has a girlfriend, but he doesn't like her. He likes me instead. He never wants to be with his girlfriend; he only wants to be with me. He means the world to me, but he has no clue how I feel. Should I tell him how I feel?

    I'm concerned that you're getting ahead of yourself. First, you know that he's dating someone else, so honor that. If he truly didn't like her or want to be with her, he'd break up with her. Give him the space to figure that out for himself instead of being the cause of it. You wouldn't want anyone creating trouble in your dating relationship, would you?

    Second, since you say he has no clue how you feel, going from that to professing undying love is like going from zero to 100. Slow down. Work on a friendship with him instead while he works out his relationship issues. There's nothing wrong with letting him know that IF he ever becomes single, then you'd be interested. Or, you might say that he's your kind of guy, his girlfriend is very lucky, and ask him where you would meet someone like him? It gets the point across well enough.

    If he likes you as well as you claim he does, then you'll end up together. While he figures it out, however, don't stop looking elsewhere.

      I have a crush, he is only 124 days older than me. He goes to my school and my scouts but he will be up leaving scouts soon because he will turn 15 in the ne t August and then after year 11 (he is in year 10 right now) we will probably never see each other again. Right now we are just friends but I am longing to be with him I just don’t know how he feels. The only thing I have gotten really is he replies very fast to my texts and I noticed him looking at me and when I caught him, he smirked and shrugged then looked the other way. I have a feeling he is talking to someone though... he might not be. But we have totally different tastes in music! But I think he is so sweet and funny and omg I just love him I sing these songs to myself at night time because it lets me think of what it would be like if we were together

      I have a crush, his name is Max, he even has the same religion as me, we've played volleyball together for a church activity, but I don't think I'm ever going to tell him I like him, besides I'm not even 16 yet. I did catch him sneaking glances at me yesterday though

      Cupcake - He likes someone else so don't go chasing him when you know he has a girlfriend. It cheapens the attraction. If he really liked you as much as you liked him he'd break up with her. Sorry but I'm just giving it to you straight.

      Basically me and this boy met in secondary and ever since I have liked him. We sit together a lot so I decided to ask him out and he said no. But a couple days later he said it’s only cause he liked someone else so now I’m unsure of his feelings for me . What should I do ???

      He is currently one of my friends. We call everyday and we have 2 classes together. I'm not sure if he likes me, or if its just a good friendship. Even I'm not sure if I like him like that. I'm not longing to be with him, I just really appreciate him. I think its just a rlly good friendship.

      Eva - Thank you for the song suggestions. The Tate McRae song was already on there and I added the Alli Simpson song. Regarding your question, a number of others have asked similar questions. Instead of writing him a note, try to talk with him and develop a personal connection first to see if there is an attraction. Take a look at the questions and answers above for specific suggestions on how to do that. I've answered many questions on the topic.

      You've convinced me to write an article about the topic instead of answering these one by one.

      Lana - You don't say how you determined that he "clearly" did not have the same feelings for you. However, it seems that your relationship with him has recently strengthened. If he is flirting now, then you've probably gotten mixed messages along the way. Or, maybe you've read him incorrectly. Resolve it with open and honest face-to-face communication.

      There is nothing wrong with finding a quiet time when you have time to talk and both of you are relaxed. Then just ask him. The conversation might go along the lines of, "So … can I ask you what is this thing we have going on? I'm confused. Are we just buddies who flirt on occasion or do you want it to be more?" Don't be afraid to ask him to state his feelings or intentions, but at the same time be ready to do the same. If what he wants doesn't coincide with your own goals, be ready to cool things way down and let him know WHY. There are plenty of attractive, sensitive young men out there who are interested in meaningful relationships rather than just the latest sexual conquest. Get the answer you need rather than just guessing. Good luck!

      i reconnected with an old friend of mine i used to go school with about a year ago. I started to grow a crush on him but he clearly did not feel the same, but lately since around 5 months we have been flirting and talking a lot. we make it sure that we talk or update each other about our day everyday. He insisted on meeting me and plans to meet me again and hang out often. sometimes he acts weird which makes me sceptical. i doubt that he flirts with me just because he is bored but then he does something sweet. its like we have this unspoken thing and we are kinda in the 'talking phase' but idk. plus i cannot confess cause im scared it might damage my friendship with him, also my overthinking gets me to believe that he is a sort of a fuckboy. please help me :(

We got back at 2 this morning and he came over to me and said he had fun with me then asked if we could hug. He also told me he likes my hair and he thinks it is pretty. I don’t have any idea I feel if he likes me though. What do you think?

      Sofia A. - There could be several possibilities besides him not being into you. It could be a personal or family emergency or similar unexpected situation (like family coming into town for the holiday), having to work, getting put on restriction, being ill, etc. Since you've already texted him once to express concern, don't reach out anymore. He'll contact you soon if he's interested. It's best not to appear overeager. I hope this helps.

On the 4th of July, he was supposed to be at a party that he said he would be attending but never showed up. The next day I texted him and asked, "why werent u at the ------'s house yesterday? i hate to say it but i was rly looking forward to seeing u". He hasn't texted me since and I have no clue why!

      Maychi - Be cautious and take it slow, as not all online friends are who they say they are. Don't give away details like your address, phone, full name, etc. Sure, I'm being old school about this, but it's best to play it safe. I want the best for you. I'm glad that you can have fun, be open, and act silly with a friend online. It's very possible that your friendship will always be online given a large geographic distance. However, many people have online-only friendships. Don't let this replace your in-person relationships though. Seek both. Thank you for the song suggestion which I am adding. Have a great day.

      I realy like my online friend. We met when playing games together. Started talking everyday rigth after we first met and we told eachother everything and feel very comfortable around eachother. But we have a big geographic distance and dating would be difficult. For now i do not know how he feels about me, but i like him a lot. To the point i act silly sometimes and give myself out...I don't even know what to do. Tell him or not and when if ever and how it'll go after that...Also a song to recomend that i would probably have him listen to. Uwu by chewy. Pretty much sums up my feelings for him. ^^

      shefali - Forget this rude dude. He might have been mildly intrigued but conflicted because he had other love interests. Regardless, his behavior is really disrespectful, rubbing your face in rejection. He unfollowed you and told you directly he likes someone else. Unfollow him and find someone new to admire. Your dignity is worth more than how this guy is treating you.

      so I've a crush on one guy from my college. my one friend told him that I like him, and he wanted to know who I was, later on I followed him on instagram and he followed me back the next day, later on he unfollowed, we've never spoke to each other in person. after few days I messaged him, his replies were dead. and he is kind of rude over text and in person atleast he doesn't seem to hate me. later on I drunked texted him and told him about my feelings, and he said he likes someone, the next day in college he showed me to his bestfriend and later on he even stood exact next to me near the counter, and pulled the girls cheek and left. I've even noticed him talking to his friends about me and even looking at me, and I've even noticed his bestfriends coming near me and showing me to his other friends. what should I do, keep crushing on him/ or let it go and why does he behave like this, when he doesn't like me and he likes someone else. and why does he revolve around me.? :'(

We talk every once in a while (in person) but we also text a lot. it usually takes a little bit for us to respond to eachother but that is only because it is a weird texting app. He is always laughing at what I say and telling me im really funny, and He also says that he can relate and stuff like that. His mom keeps bugging me telling me that once I turn 16, we need to go out with eachother. I dont know what to think

      SMN - Sometimes opposites attract, and I think that's what's working in this case. Because of his shyness, you'll have to be the one to lead the discussion of your feelings for one another.

      Tell him straight up you need to talk to him about something that's making you feel a little awkward and nervous. He'll relate to that with being shy.

      Describe how much you've enjoyed talking with him and how much you trust him with your feelings. Talk about being different in introversion/extraversion but feeling a real spark and connection when you're together. Then say you have a confession to make: you don't know if he feels the same about you, but you've begun to have feelings for him as something deeper than just a friend. (If he acts a little confused spell it out: romantic feelings.)

      Read his cues and listen well. You may have to ask him straight up how he feels or suggest that you exchange contact information over the summer or get together outside of school to see if you still have this spark. I hope this recommended plan of action helps. Plan B is write a letter; this gives an introverted person time and space to respond.

      Either way, don't let school end without saying something! Good luck!

      So there's this guy that I've had a crush on for a while. He's really sweet, funny, and he always knows how to cheer me up. We've been friends for a couple of months. We see each other everyday in the morning, during lunch, in our theater class, and we ride the bus together. The thing is, this guy is super shy. Like he barely talks when he is around a group of people. He talks a lot with me about small stuff, big stuff, and pretty much anything we can talk about. He really opens up whenever he is around me, and I'm pretty sure that's a good sign. And he always wants to make sure I'm okay and happy. Like the other day he asked my friend if I was feeling better (I had a rough day) just to see if I was really okay. The thing is, I'm incredibly extroverted. More than the average person. And I've never liked someone who is as introverted as this guy is.I want him to know how I feel, but I'm TERRIFIED of messing up our friendship or getting rejected. I feel like he would never like me since we are so different. I just need some advice because I really like him and the school year is about to end. And unless I tell him soon, I might not get the chance to over the summer. Please help!

      M - Talk first with your friend about everything you've said here to see if he likes her too. It would be best if you two could agree for the sake of your friendship that you're not going to allow a girl to come between you. Ideally, he isn't attracted to her and can support you in making your feelings known to her. Ultimately, however, you can't make someone be attracted toyou. Have the necessary conversations but be prepared for the responses.

      There's this girl that I like. We have hung out a couple of times and I´ve felt that there is something between us, but in the last few weeks it feels like she's into one of my closest friends. She's always close to him if he's around, and laugh at his jokes even when they're not funny at all. I know that this girl is way out of my league and that my friend is better looking than me but I don't know what to do. Ive been crushing on this girl for a while now and he knows that. I first thought I had a chance at being with her when we bumped into each other when we were both skiing, and we hung out for the rest of the week. I learned a lot about her and feels that I might have a chance. But when be both got back she wasn't the same, she was a bit more restrained. I have no idea what to do and I'm having a breakdown if I should tell her or not, what should I do?

      Khushi - Let their part of the love triangle resolve first. If your female friend truly doesn't like him, ask her to be very blunt with him and just say so rather than beating around the bush that there are other girls who are better for him. As he is recovering from the hurt of rejection, you can let him know that YOU see a lot of wonderful qualities in him and have been attracted to him for awhile. Give it a shot! Looks aren't everything, and I bet you're not giving yourself enough credit.

      I'm in love with this guy who once used to like me too. We talk a lot and we're kind of pretty close. I really really love him and I want to tell him exactly how I feel but I'm too scared of rejection and loosing him to someone else. AND, he's crushing over one of my best friends... and it gets worse: he tells me everything about her (her smile, the way she talks etc.) and asks ME for tips to get her. And it practically kills me. And the other girl knows about me liking him and even she once told him that there's other girls who are better for him but he just won't listen.

      I'm not even close to how pretty my friend is, and i don't want a guy to get between us... but it's just too hard... I don't even know what I should do... shall i tell him?

      Sadie, I don't know how old you and this young man are, but he was probably looking very forward to seeing you again. When he didn't get the opportunity to dance with you, he was very sad. Let this be a lesson NOT to use friends as go-betweens in communicating between you. Instead, communicate directly for clarity and to avoid wasting precious time. Ahead of the next dance, write a note to him expressing your feelings for him. Go to him DIRECTLY and give it to him and watch as he reads it. Ask him DIRECTLY to dance and deal with one another that way.

      I have liked this guy for a few months now. We don’t really get to see each other often though. We usually see each other at a dance once a month. Usually at the dance I am the person sending my friends to tell him something, but this time, the whole time his friends were trying to get my attention and telling me that he wanted to dance with me. I meant to ask him to dance but I never got the chance to, we ended up not dancing with each other, and he cried about it. I honestly don’t know why he would be so sad about us not dancing, and why all of the sudden his friends were wanting my attention so bad.

      ab - Yes, he shows all the signs of liking you, and his down talking other guys is an attempt to get your attention. Since you met him online, it's really important to have your safety as THE top priority. Never send or receive compromising photos, even on Snapchat, as they can be screenshot, shared, and used to make your life a living hell. Be careful about giving out other important personal information, too, such as your home address.

      This sounds like a blossoming relationship wherein you might have a genuine connection. If he cares about you, then he won't mind doing what is needed to keep you safe. Share his contact information (photo, full name, phone, social media contact information, etc.) with people you trust, and ONLY meet him in person in a public location and within a group context (i.e., with other friends). If you are under 18, make sure your parents know about him. Bottom line: pursue the relationship but always keep personal safety at the top of your list.

      There is this boy...his name is carter. I like him. He sticks out from the other guys. I can joke with him about things like I can't do with most people. We have an inside joke. And he has a nickname for me and I have one for him. We talk about things and its like we help each other out. I first had him on my snap chat but I was scared that he lived far away, most guys I meet and like do. But as I took the chance and gave him my number, I got to know that he actually lives a couple minutes from me. We talked about other guys and he NEVER had anything good to say about them. I don't want to ruin what we have, but what of by chance he likes me and I don't take the chance with him. I've seen that happen to so many people and they are still miserable to this day. And sometimes just going with the flow doesn't help.

      Hailey - It's your senior year, so you already realize you have to move fast. You don't want to be 10, 20 or 30 years down the road wondering "what if"? He's exhibiting all the usual signs of crushing on you, and you don't know what the status of his relationship is currently. He could be newly single or waiting for a reason to break up with her. Find a quiet time alone with him when your conversation will not be interrupted. Sit across from him, such as at a table, so that you can look into his eyes and hold your hands out open for him to hold. Tell him you need him to listen to you for just a minute. Describe how you see him casting glances your way, being around you more often, and you like it. Then say that you know that he has a girlfriend and you wish you were her. Pause for his reaction. Ask him if that's a relationship he is happy in. If he basically says no, then tell him if he were single you'd love to go out because you feel a special spark and you only have 3 months left before graduation. Tell him you don't want to look back at this relationship years from now and wonder "what if"? Yes, this is forward, but girl, you have 3 months. Go for it.

      Confused (and happy) - I'm so glad this friendship worked out. Don't be afraid to befriend whomever you want. Don't let the haters and gossips control your life. I'm proud of you both for patching things up. Thanks for the update!

      So I like this guy a lot. He is a grade above me. For the last few weeks he has been showing signs he may like me. He is always looking at me, and he and his friends keep talking about the two of us, when they don’t think I can hear them. We started texting each other last week and he is always using these emojis at the most random times

      Thomas Jorry - Thank you for sharing your own experiences and advice. Sometimes it takes some time to realize that love was there all along. Looks like she took too long, however, as you do not feel the same now.

      I remember when I was in high school I fell in love with my best friend. She told me we must just be friends and she can’t be mine. She said it exactly like this: “I just can’t date you Zzz”. I kept on being her friend and treating her the best I could as a friend. I got over my feelings for her. But now as we are talking she’s the one who keeps on sending me messages and asking me to give her a chance. She is telling me she’s in love with me but I don’t feel anything for her anymore sobi can’t. That’s why I feel like when she says she wanna be a friend nothing more, u simply didn’t impress her enough for her to consider u as her lover. Hint 1: don’t give up too soon. Hint 2: accept her offer of being nothing more but friends. Hint 3: make as happy as you can as a friend. Hint 4: treat her special. Of all those things, she will see you as a special guy, she will appreciate you, she will appreciate the things you do for her, she will think of you in her time of sadness, she will wish you were there to make her happy, she will start missing you, and reflecting on all the time you enjoyed together with her, and she will see how nobody else makes her feel that way, and will start wanting you to stay forever, she will start getting jealous of any girl you hang around with wondering if you treat them the same as you treat her, and soon without her knowing she will feel that nervousness everytime she thinks about you and BOOM, she can’t avoid accepting she feels for you. She wants you. And she loves you. Those are my opinions according to my life experience from events that happened

      Mysterious Person - So you asked him out directly and he just didn't answer you, as in he went mute or changed the subject or said he'd get back to you and didn't? I suspect he does indeed like you but is socially awkward or there's something preventing him from going out with you such as he doesn't have a car, isn't allowed to date yet, etc. You can either continue this game or move it forward. Get direct. Go up to him and sit beside him. Smile big and tell him you've noticed that he's been looking your way and wonder what it means, remind him that you had asked him a question that you never got an answer to, and/or tell him that word on the street is that he likes you (and what does he say about that?). I hope that helps.

      I am a girl and I have a crush on this guy, I have caught him looking or smiling at me several times, and several people tell me that he likes me back. I have asked him out before, but he didn't answer, but he still keeps on smiling at me. What does his mean?

      Sadie - Take it slow and don't be too quick to rush things. People's crushes develop at different speeds, and he may be slower to express emotions. Let him warm up to you.

      I have a crush on a guy. Hi mom is my sisters softball coach and his 2 sisters are very good friends with my sister. We have been talking a lot the passed two weeks, but we don’t have any classes with each other so we can only text, although we might be able to start seeing each other on the weekends. His mom really wants us to date once we are both 16 which is next year. He hasn’t said anything about liking me, but my friend and my sister keep on saying they think he may like me. What should I do about it? I don’t want to tell him, if that is not how he feels, or risk our relationship.

      Sandra Snow - If she is a very close friend and they dated for a long time, you should probably check this guy off your list. However, if they only went out a couple of times and she's not exactly your best friend, they are no longer an item so feel free to proceed.

      In that case, develop a friendship and start flirting with him and see if he returns your overtures. People take time to get over broken hearts. Avoid becoming a repeated confidante of how sad he feels without her. If he describes how much he misses her, just say that sorry but you don't think she's coming back. However, when he's ready to start dating again you think he's an awesome guy. Good luck!

      I have feelings for this guy that attends my school. He was dating my friend before so I couldn't say anything about it but no they are not together anymore but I think he still has feelings for her. what can I do?

      In the middle - You absolutely cannot feel guilty about not liking someone romantically. Sometimes you just don't return a person's feelings for you. This happens even when it's "logical" that you should like them (i.e., they're nice, smart, you have lots of things in common with them, etc.).

      Don't be afraid to speak your emotional truth. He's in charge of his own coping. Take him aside and say something along these lines: "Jim, there's no easy way to say this without hurting you so I'm just going to say it. I'm very flattered by the attention you've expressed towards me and I enjoy you as a friend. However, I don't see us anything more than friends. This is awkward for me and I hope it doesn't ruin our friendship. I do care about you as a person."

      I hope this helps you.
