Do you want to know how to tell when someone has a crush on you?

More specifically, do you want to learn how to recognize the signs of love so you can improve your dating life, and effortlessly connect with people on a meaningful level?

I thought so. Because when you know why people act & think a certain way, it becomes a lot easier to find common ground and create incredible relationships that last for a lifetime.

Over the past few years, I’ve found myself in the same position as you countless times. But I’ve discovered that when you’re able to recognize the common signs of love, people’s actions often speak much louder than words. Keri Hilson said it best:

“People may not tell you how they feel about you, but they always show you. Pay attention.”

So below are a collection of ways to tell if someone has a crush on you. Each of these insights helped me to improve every single one of my relationships due to a newly-found ability to recognize whenever someone had a crush on me. I hope they do the same for you, too.

They Laugh At Everything You Say.

According to research published by the BBC, “laughter is less to do with jokes and more a social behavior which we use to show people that we like them and that we understand them.” So if someone is regularly laughing during your everyday conversations, they may have developed an attraction towards you.

For the longest time, I was hanging out with an amazing girl that was continually laughing & smiling throughout every moment of our time together. Although I initially thought that she was just having fun, I later found out she had a massive crush on me for several months.

It’s important to remember that someone may not have a crush on you merely because they’re laughing whenever you’re together. However, it’s a sign that you’ve developed a meaningful connection together, which they consider to be unique.

So laugh frequently, have meaningful conversations, and enjoy every moment that you’re with each other. In the words of Seneca: “One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.”

They Always Want To Be With You.

If you’ve ever had an obsessive crush, you’ll know what it’s like to dream about spending loads of time with them. After all, you can’t help but feel like you want to be with them for the rest of your life. So if someone displays similar behavior, it could be a sign that they’ve got a crush on you.

A study by Harvard Medical School has shown that spending time with people you love can significantly boost your happiness. Quoting the article: “Personal connection creates mental and emotional stimulation, which are automatic mood boosters, while isolation is a mood buster.”

So if someone always wants to be with you, it’s undoubtedly a sign that you make them happy, and they want you to be in their life as frequently as possible.

They’re Nervous Around You.

One of the biggest reasons that people are nervous around their crush is because they’re suddenly conscious of their every word, action, and thought whenever they’re near you.

For example, they might be nervous about having an awkward conversation, not wearing a great outfit when meeting up, or anything else that would influence your opinion of them.

So if you notice that someone is nervous in your presence, do whatever you can to make them comfortable, and you’ll both notice that the nerves quickly disappear.

They Interact With Your Social Media Posts.

When people interact with their crush over social media, it can often be less intimidating than having a conversation in person. After all, they’re able to choose the specific posts they like, think about their response to your messages, and many other things which reduce nerves.

Research published by CNN Shows that “by chatting online, potential lovers overlook superficial turnoffs and open up to each other more deeply.” So if someone is looking to generate a meaningful relationship with you, they may find it easier to begin talking online instead of face-to-face.

So if you’re able to understand someone’s social media habits towards your profile, it can be easier to recognize if they have a potential crush on you or not.

They’re Always Finding Reasons To Talk.

When someone develops a crush on you, they’re likely to find excuses to talk as frequently as possible.

For example, they might have conversations to get to know you, talk until the early hours of the morning, or anything else that would allow them to speak often.

I’ve discovered that when someone falls in love with you, it provides an opportunity to connect with them on a meaningful level and create a beautiful relationship that lasts a lifetime.

Marcus Aurelius said it best: “Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.”
