These tips should all be helpful in your crush become interested in you. All of these things played a huge part in me being able to have almost all of my crushes like me from my mid teen years to now. I wrote this guide based on my person experience, and also my experience with helping others in this area.
(Disclaimer: these tips probably won’t work if your crush has already written you off. If this person has expressed disinterest in you specifically, people with your character traits as a whole, or people with your physical traits as a whole, then I would suggest moving on from the hope of them liking you.)
Show your personality
Sometimes we can nervous around our crushes and be more conscious of how we’re acting, or what we’re saying. Don’t get stand offish and tense up when he/she is around. Be yourself and let your personality shine through on the outside.
Dress to impress
Everyone doesn’t have the resources or ability to dress the way they’d like but try your best with you have. You want to make a good impression on this person, and looking presentable is one of the ways to do so. Wear things that are flattering on you and match who you are as a person.
Get to know their friends
He/she will be a lot more open to you if they see that their friends enjoy your company. Plus it makes the likelihood of you being invited to a group hangout with your crush much better.
Interact with them often
Interacting doesn’t always come in the form of talking but direct communication is the best. You can share small greetings when you see them, like and/or comment on their social media post sometimes, exchange smiles/waves...etc.
The reason I advise texting is because it’s always good when your crush can subconsciously have you on their mind, even when you’re not around. Communicating with them when you’re apart is a game changer. Make sure you get their phone number (directly from them) and text them casually. Calling would be even better but if you’re just in the stages of getting to know them still texting is more realistic. I would text my crushes casually all of the time in the early stages of meeting, and then the text became more in-depth as I got to know them. I feel as though that is a key factor in being able to connect with them, because you’re putting effort into knowing each other even when you’re apart.
People like to hear nice things about themselves and your crush will appreciate you communicating to them one (or more) of their positive characteristics. In my personal experiences my love interest would all kind of blush when I gave them compliments. I can tell they were very happy about that.
Learn what they like
This doesn’t mean become something you’re not or like something you don’t, but if you know that you both share a common interest, casually dive deeper into that interest with them some time. If you know there is a physical attribute you have that they’re into try to draw attention to it.
Flirting isn’t always over the top and in your face, but if that’s your personality then go for it, just don’t be too forward. There are a lot of ways to subtly flirt someone. Flirting will help keep you from being friend zoned once you start hanging out with your crush.
Make your availability known
You don’t have to directly come out like “hey, I’m single” but if you know them already you can casually mention or hint at your relationship status, if it’s appropriate in the conversation. If you don’t know them maybe try mentioning it to a friend or mutual friend while your crush is near you do they can overhear. You can also specify your relationship status if you have them on social media, either on your account, or in a post.
Take the initiative
You’re the one with the crush so you can’t always expect them to go after or notice you. After all, you set your sight on them first and you’re not sure if they’re interested in you yet. If you don’t know them, go up to them and strike a conversation. For my bashful people I know this can be hard but it’s worth the risk. The likelihood is higher that a person won’t shut you down when you’re trying to get to know them (if you’re not being overbearing or creepy), than it is that they will. If you do know them, try to arrange a way for you two to hang out one-on-one. If you two already hangout alone often then try to spice it up next time you do. You can hold their hand, put your hand on their knee, lay your head on their shoulder...etc.
Make sure there’s progress
This goes hand in hand with making the initiative. Never get comfortable where you’re at. You can’t go long periods of time doing the same thing and expecting a different result. Always take baby steps to the next level. For example, If you guys have been texting more than anything... great, but now you need to start seeing them in person a lot. Just be sure you’re making progress with the dynamic of you guy’s relationship becoming romantic. Don’t become their friend, do nothing more, and just wait from them to like you.
