We know what it’s like to be head over heels for someone; to pine after them for months -- sometimes even years-- with no clear-cut sign that they feel the same way. It’s a rough situation to be in for sure, which often results in you putting a lot of other romantic options on the back burner.
But with the new year upon us, we’re here to tell you that it’s either time to go for or it or move on with your life. But first, we’ll have to figure out what the current situation is with your crush.
Though you certainly know your life better than anyone else, your emotional investment in everything, coupled with all your faults and insecurities, may actually make you blind to how other people perceive you. Even if you’re not one of them, there are people out there that have zero ability to pick up on the non-verbal communication from others, which is a huge problem in the dating world.
After all, no one wants to come right out and tell their crush that they're falling for them -- it's far too vulnerable. Therefore, you need to learn to drop subtle clues and hope they pick up the scent.
So let's find out if you're missing the signs that your crush is putting out!
1Do they ever send you flirtatious snap chats?
Are they constantly sending you cute selfies through personalized snap chats? Unless they’re someone that literally flirts with everyone they talk to, this is a sure fire way to know they’re interested. And if they are overly flirtatious, your efforts may not even be worth the trouble.
2Are you guys on the same attractiveness level?
Of course, looks aren't everything. But if you're pining for someone who is way better looking than you, it sadly does make your chances of getting with them slightly less optimistic. If this is the case, you may want to just go for it sooner rather than later.
3Do you both stay up late texting each other?
If your crush is willing to stay up to the glow of their phone in the wee hours of the night for you, they’re either really interested or really lonely. For your sake, we’ll go with the former and gander a guess that they’re definitely down to date.
4When you’re texting, do they constantly send you one and two word answers?
If your crush is genuinely kind-hearted, they may not want to hurt your feelings and tell you outright that they’re not interested. As a result, they may carry on the conversation that you fire up, but if they’re only texting back one in two work responses, you’re wasting your time.
