People Reveal What Screams "I Have A Crush On You"

[rebelmouse-image 18355678 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Some people are blind to love, but it's usually pretty obvious if someone is interested. These people share their stories on crushing at it's finest.

u/opeterbreda asks:

What screams"I have a crush on you"?

Don't wear their favorite color...

[rebelmouse-image 18355680 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When I was a teenager there was a guy in my friends group who every girl had a crush on at some point in their life. He was obsessed with the color yellow and wore yellow constantly. You could tell who had developed a crush on him when that person started wearing yellow a lot all in a sudden. That never worked though, he only ever dated one person while we were teenagers. They were together for almost 3 years and she never did the yellow thing.

The quiet syndrome

[rebelmouse-image 18355682 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

In a mixed gender group of friends and that one girl is happy to talk to every other boy normally but gets quiet/shy when she talks to that one boy in the group.

When it's just too much to take

[rebelmouse-image 18355684 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If I avoid them as much as possible.

All the important mannerisms

[rebelmouse-image 18355685 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Constantly smiling at you when you're around. Its important to them to remember details about things in your life, they bring things up in convo, start conversations first via texting. Touching their hair. Slightly touching your arm when they laugh at something you said. They are engaged when you're speaking with eye contact and don't look away. Mimicking what you do, how you sit, your mannerisms, etc. Their feet pointed towards you (also good if you want to know if it's time to wrap up a convo in a one-on-one setting.)

Ops! Now they know

[rebelmouse-image 18355686 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Stalking their social media and accidentally deep-liking an old post...

Why else would you laugh at a terrible joke?

[rebelmouse-image 18355687 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Laughing at your terrible jokes.

Either or...

[rebelmouse-image 18355688 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Multiple glances or not being able to contain the smile when they look at you. Especially if you don't even know them. Either that or there's some bs being said about you and everyone thinks it's funny.

The cryptic route

[rebelmouse-image 18355689 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Making 100% sure that the other person does not know you have the slightest interest in them.

Cute, or a kick?

[rebelmouse-image 18355691 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Isn't pointing your toes at them obvious enough?

When life with them flashes before your eyes

[rebelmouse-image 18355692 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Picturing life together after just interacting. I met a girl at boxing yesterday, she was new so I offered to train with her, she seemed genuinely interested in my teaching, we both laughed a lot and had fun. I stayed after to get to know her, she signed up for more lessons, we went outside and spent more time talking, she even gave me a compliment on my physique and I think we indrectly made plans to train together again?

Some things only work when you are under 12

[rebelmouse-image 18355693 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When they chase you, grab you, quickly kiss you on the cheek 5 times then run away.

Well, I was 8, but it got the point across.

I wonder how it would work now that I'm 50?

Doing it like birds

[rebelmouse-image 18355694 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If he unfurls his plumage to reveal a colorful under layer, followed by an intricate mating dance.

When the nerves kick in

[rebelmouse-image 18355695 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Stuttering in front of the person.

Now that's trust

[rebelmouse-image 18355696 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When they'll eat the oats right outta your hand.

Dead give away

[rebelmouse-image 18355697 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When you make eye contact with someone and they immediately look away because they've been staring at you.

This is specific

[rebelmouse-image 18355698 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Check for the number of Ys when they text you. It's called the Hey scale:

Hey - Hi

Heyy - I like you

Heyyy - Love me

Sharing the good stuff

[rebelmouse-image 18355699 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Mixtape, or whatever the modern equivalent is.

Measure the conversation activity

[rebelmouse-image 18355701 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If they're really open to talking to you, that's a good sign. Like, four points:

  1. When I like a girl, I will repeatedly try to start up conversations
  2. When a girl likes me, she will always be extremely receptive to those attempts and conversations will billow very easily
  3. When a girl does not like me, she might answer my questions and be friendly with minimal eye contact
  4. When I do not like a girl who might like me, I won't be so inclined to perpetuate a conversation because I know how she might misconstrue that

Clueless!

[rebelmouse-image 18346755 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I sent a guy the song "I can't help falling in love with you"

They replied they liked the song as well :L

Interesting behavioral cue

[rebelmouse-image 18346617 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When laughing in a group setting, a person will generally try to make eye contact with the person there whose approval they most value.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
