Eg. avoiding eye contact (especially when their closer to you), shying away from them, etc..
I do it sometimes, know a few people that do the same as well, I'm wondering how common it is.
Why do you do it? Think you have no chance? Afraid of rejection? Just nervous as hell because you like them so much?

I do it all the fucking time. I never show any signs to my crush that I like them, I try my hardest to make them think that I just don't give a fuck cause I always think I don't have a chance anyways and if they found out it would be embarrassing. Plus, I can't help but be extremely nervous around cute boys. I think they intimidate me. And if the cute guy is also my crush, it's the absolute hell of nervousness.7

Yup! I did this a lot and sometimes try to show signs, but this never really worked. It was because I was scared of rejection. Then this Girl came into my life who approached me first after I had an obvious behaviour in her eyes but I thought its not obvious at all. And she opened my eyes saying "a boy doesn't see himself and other Boys the way a girl does. Thats why other boys often dont Understand and ask themselves "why is she together with him". Same the other way around: a girl never sees herself and other girls the way a boy does. So stuff you dont like at all about yourself can be pretty cute to a girl. Thats why you can always see it as very possible that a girl likes you." she was great and Im thankful for that, because this "she sees me in another way I do" gives me strength to approach girls now. Unfortunately we had to break up, but this is a girl I'll never forget.1
