One of life's simplest pleasures is the excitement of discovering a new crush. Unfortunately, getting to the bottom of whether or not someone has feelings for you is just as confusing as it is exciting. Even though it's intriguing to suspect that someone has a crush on you, there could be crossed-wires or mixed signals causing you to misread the situation. So, what's the secret? How can you tell if someone likes you, without risking embarrassment or putting yourself out there?

Journalist/Lifestyle Writer Thea Glassman explains that "Having a crush can be thrilling—and completely, ridiculously nerve-wracking. You spend half your time wondering if that person actually likes you and the other half wondering if you had played it sufficiently cool around them. If someone is interested, you'll notice that their energy will go up when they're around you." Here are a few tips on how to detect if someone truly has a crush on you:
1. Receptive Body-Language:
Emotional attraction instinctively manifests through physical behavior and gestures. For example, if someone has a crush, they'll do things like playful slapping, constant eye contact, maintaining relaxed posture, and so on.
2. They Care About Your Family/Friends:
Someone who has a crush on you probably spends time thinking about being a part of your life. If they get a chance to endear themselves to your friends and family, they'll go the extra mile to make a good impression.
3. Secrecy About Their Love Life:
If someone has a crush on you, anything that would make you jealous becomes distasteful. They don't want to risk pushing your way by sharing information that would turn you off.
4. They're a Captive Audience:
Romantic attraction automatically makes people develop a deep interest in their crushes. They laugh at every joke, listen to every story, and can't get enough of anything you have to say.
5. Preferential Treatment:
If someone has a crush on you, you automatically become a VIP in their eyes. Whatever love-language it is they use to express themselves, they'll treat you in a way that's unique.
At the end of the day, it's best not to torture yourself with uncertainty when it comes to romance. Use discretion as you analyze the situation, and remember that communication is the best way to resolve misunderstandings—especially romantic ones. If someone you're interacting with has all the telltale signs of a crush, the proof is going to lie in the little unconscious things they do.
