7 Signs He Has a Crush on You

Hey Optimist Minds!

Do you think a guy you know might have feelings for you, but you’re not sure? 

When boys develop a crush, they become highly interested in getting closer to the object of their desire. This could be a physical attraction, an emotional one, or both. In each of these cases, he’ll start behaving differently than how he behaves in front of others.

Sometimes, these changes in behaviour are hard to miss because the guy makes his affection obvious. But other times, he might be a bit more subtle about it because he’s not sure if you feel the same way.

This video will describe seven signs that he has a crush on you. Noticing these behaviours can give you an idea about how a man feels about you. However, we want our viewers to know that the best way of finding out about the crush is to talk about it openly.

Now, let’s begin.


He pays attention when you’re around.

Every time you enter a space, do you notice him look at you? Does he lean in to listen when you’re talking?

When a guy has a crush on you, you start captivating his attention for good and ill. He’ll often get distracted by your presence and won’t be able to help it. Sometimes, he may try to disguise it with other reasons to look your way. But even if he succeeds at that, you’ll start feeling seen.


He smiles at you whenever you look at him.

Does this person respond to your glances with a welcoming smile? Does he encourage intimacy by maintaining eye contact?

It’s easy to guess someone has a crush on you if they make an effort to seem approachable. It could be that the two of you have never gotten a chance to introduce yourself to each other and yet, he smiles at you every time you look at him. And if he’s shy, you might catch him blushing when you smile back.


He looks for excuses to talk to you.

Has this guy ever randomly come up to you to initiate a conversation? Does it seem like he’d never miss an opportunity to spend a few minutes with you?

Advances like these make it pretty obvious that the person is interested in speaking to you. So, there’s a good chance that he might have a crush on you. The best thing about this sign is that it sets up the perfect moment to ask him directly how he feels.


He gets nervous around you.

When someone is nervous, they might sweat, shake, stammer, or become a bit clumsy. Does the guy you’re wondering about behave that way in front of you? Usually, nervousness comes from a need to impress and be liked. It happens if the guy is intimidated by you or he thinks you’re too good for him.


He tries to show off in front of you.

Men who have relatively high self-confidence may try to catch your eye by doing something impressive. Doing so leaves a favourable impression of them in your minds, giving you a reason to think about them when they’re away. It’s possible he might embarrass himself in a failed attempt but even then, it’s likely that he likes you.


He cracks jokes or picks on you.

If the guy isn’t emotionally mature enough to process his feelings, he may try to get noticed by picking on you. You might think that he’s antagonising you by targeting you or making you the butt of his jokes. 

But unless he explicitly tells you that he dislikes you, there’s a possibility that he’s being mean because he’s secretly crushing on you.


He stands up for you.

An emotionally secure man will reveal any affection for you by speaking up when it counts. If he sees anyone messing with you or taking you for granted, he’ll try to protect you by standing up to the offender. This is a clear sign that he cares about you enough to support you when you need it.

So, have you seen any guy behave in these ways in front of you? Do you think he might have a crush on you? Let us know your thoughts in the comments. We’d love to hear from you.
