Crushes can be exciting, thrilling yet frightening. But it can be confusing to understand if someone actually likes you or if they’re just being friendly. What makes it worse is that the very essence of a secret crush is that it’s kept…a secret.

Yet there’s something about this person that makes you question if they are just weird or do they actually want to date you? Sadly, we can’t read minds. But we can use some psychology hacks to look for some subtle signs that can clear our doubts.

Psychology says that we behave and act differently around people we like despite how hard we may try to hide our feelings. Since you can’t just outright ask someone if they have feelings for you, today we are going to share some research-backed tell-tale signs that someone is secretly attracted to you.

So without further ado, here are signs someone has a secret crush on you:

1. They act weird around you

Your secret admirer may feel nervous, fidgety, and uneasy when you’re nearby. They may also avoid eye contact or talking to you. Research shows that crushes can cause serious anxiety.

2. They secretly stare at you

Your secret admirer may look at you while you are distracted or not looking. However, they may quickly look away when you stare back at them. Secretly gazing at someone is a sign of attraction, according to researchers.

3. Their body language is a dead giveaway

They may act more confident or be shy when you are around. They may stand differently, touch their hair repeatedly, blush, talk faster, imitate you, and look at you with their pupils dilated. Studies show that we tend to have dominant and open body language when trying to attract attention from someone we like.

4. They try to be near you

Psychologists believe that we try to seek proximity and closeness with the person we love. So they may move physically closer to you or pretend to bump into you and initiate a conversation.

5. They find new ways to communicate

Your secret admirer will always look for ways to initiate contact and engage in intriguing or even meaningless conversations. They will try to spend more time with you by talking to you either in person, over the phone, by text, or even on social media. Studies have found that “love talk” over phone calls & social media, can help to build relationships.
