6. They are always smiling

When someone is harboring feelings for you, they can’t help but smile when they see you every time. Researchers have found that “affiliative smiles”, which convey emotional attachments, involve “lip pressing”. They may even break out nervous laughter when you make a joke. 

7. They pay close attention

They are always the first ones to notice even the smallest changes in your appearance, give compliments, and listen to you with their undivided attention. Research shows that we tend to give increased attention to people we like and remember trivial things about them.

8. They share personal experiences

They may confide their personal problems and deepest secrets to you as they feel emotionally close to you. Psychology shows that we tend to share secrets only with those we feel closely connected with.

These are just some of the subtle signs that someone may be infatuated with you. There may be more signs that your crush may display like –

  • seeking attention
  • trying to look cool
  • being clumsy
  • helping you out
  • making fun of you or 
  • trying to make you laugh

Yes, some of these signs may not make the most sense, but neither do our feelings.

We can’t hide our feelings

Crushes can be fun and scary at the same time. We don’t always have control over them and it can make someone act foolish. Although crushes are mostly short-lived, some of them can blossom into true love.

So if you think someone has a secret crush on you and you like them too, then be sure to make your move and let them know about your feelings.

You never know when a simple infatuation can turn into a loving, lasting relationship.
