Okay, we have said this before. Having a crush and that fluttering feeling in the pit of your stomach is as exciting as it is uncomfortable. What with the nerves, the constant wondering what will happen, and the constant heady feelings that is oh-so-good.
Many a time, we get too zealous and mess things up with a new romantic interest before they even begin. And that leaves a sour taste in your mouths. Also, you keep wondering how it could have been.
After telling you what you shouldn’t be doing if you have a crush on someone the last time we are now telling you the things you SHOULD be doing when you are swooning over someone and want to see where it leads. Keep some of these tips in mind and you shall be good to go.
Fathom how serious your crush is
Are you simply admiring or genuinely fond of the person? Are you romantically drawn to them or is it just a passing feeling? Figure that out. And then decide how serious you are about pursuing it. That is always the first step because it decides how you proceed.
Try to figure out the signals they give out
Body language, behaviour, reactions to meeting you, a lot of things give away how the other person is vibing towards you. You can gauge a person’s interest in you by how the interact with you on multiple levels. This exercise is you making sure you aren’t getting into a one sided affair.
Communicate with that person
Try to get to know them, figure them out. Chances are you will probably find out something that is a total turn off. Also, let them know that you are keen on them subtly. Talk to them comfortably, don’t let it be awkward or don’t come on too strong. And when the time is right, tell them about how you feel. Hiding it does no good in the long run.
Don’t pretend to be someone else just to attract your crush. Remember, if things actually go well, you will not be able to keep up the fake persona up for long.
Embrace the possibility of a rejection
And lastly, be prepared for the rejection that may come. You need to steel yourself for the fact that maybe things won’t go as you wanted them to in your head. But that says nothing about you, it is just that your crush is looking for something different.
