Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there.

I understand how frightening it might be, but sometimes you just have to take the first step. You can’t expect your crush to be able to read your mind and figure out that you’re crushing hard. Invite them over for a movie marathon, ask them on a study date, go out of your way to talk to them. They may just reciprocate your feelings once they notice you’re interested, and everything will fall into place. Don’t wait for your crush to gaze your way for years; make things happen now!

Use subtly expressive motions.

Even the slightest expression can pique your crush’s interest. When you pass them in the corridor, compliment their outfit or smile and say hello.

Spend time with them, but not too much!

It may seem self-evident, but try to be around your crush as much as possible without coming across as overbearing. Sit next to them at lunch, invite them to the gym with you, or suggest hanging out over the weekend. The one-on-one time will allow you and your partner to interact and connect, maybe leading to mutual desire.

Pay attention!

I understand that chatting about yourself is entertaining, but your crush is unlikely to be concerned about the time your BFF fell in front of everyone at the mall (even though it was hilarious). While it’s important to provide information about yourself, make sure you’re also paying attention to your crush (not on your phone while they tell you about their siblings).
