So How Do I Actually Tell My Crush I Like Them?

It's something we've pretty much all thought about.

It’s the age old question. How do I tell my crush that I like them? Or, how do I tell my crush I like them without completely embarrassing myself? And let’s face it, it’s a toughie. But really, it’s not so tough that there can’t be an answer for it. If we can just about get our heads around the Pythagoras theorem, we can get our heads around this too.

It’s going to be a pretty daunting experience if you decide to tell your crush exactly how you feel, so we’re here to help you do it in the least awkward way possible.

Drop Those Hints

We’re not saying you should make things as obvious as you can, but definitely drop a few subtle hints to test the waters. Drop a couple of hints, maybe even flirt a little and see how they respond. If you’re getting a good feeling here, this will help you with the next part. But if you’re not feeling those vibes back, at least you can nip your crush in the bud early.

Be Confident

We know this is way easier said than done, but once you’ve made your decision that you’re going to tell your crush how you feel, be confident about it. You’ve already dropped your hints and done the ground work. And if you didn’t have a good feeling about it, you wouldn’t feel the need to share your feelings, right? The more confident you are, the easier the conversation will be. Check out simple ways to boost your confidence here.

Make It Easy & Comfortable

Although you want the best outcome (of course), you’ll still have to keep it in mind that you may not get the result that you want. So it’s important to make it easy for your crush too, so they don’t feel like they have to respond in a certain way, and that they have the choice to express their feelings too. As well as this, do it in the most comfortable way as possible. Feel like you can throw it into a conversation? Go for it. You’d rather send a text and not look at your phone for the next 20 minutes? Great, do that. You’re already pushing yourself out of your comfort zone by telling them, so try keep things a little comfortable for yourself too.

Go For It

Once you’ve made your decision, think of it the same as pulling off a plaster. Just go for it. Because the longer you wait, the more over-thinking you’re going to put yourself through. Remember, even if it doesn’t go your way, it’s not the end of the world. You’ll either be delighted you made the move, or you’ll be laughing about it in the near future.

Really, it’s always worth your while expressing how you feel, in any situation. So give it a go, and at least you’ll know you tried. There’ll be no “what ifs” about it.
