How To Identify or Spot a Crush



how to identify a crush

Last Updated on April 18, 2024 by Joshua Isibor


In this generation of ours, mainly in this 21st century, love has been defined as many things in many ways. And many have learned a lot through love.
Sometimes people think that they are falling in love when partially they aren’t because they do not get to know what that actually means.
So in this article, I will tell you what a crush actually means or when someone is crushing on you.

Firstly, a crush is a word used to describe special feelings you have for another person, a friend, or a classmate that you like. And definition says a Crush is just a happy feeling, not love.
Now from the above definition, you can see and understand that “To crush on someone does not mean to love”. It means a different thing, will I say infatuation? yes!! “infatuation”, is the act of thinking or feeling that you are in love when you are not. It happens to everyone, and it can happen to anyone, at the end of the day you find out that it’s not love but a Crush.

How to know when someone is Crushing on you…

1. They Want To Be Near You Always:

Yes, this is just one of the points. There’s no excuse for that, they always want to be near you whenever there’s a general conversation with your peers or classmate… even when you are alone, they want to be closer to you.

2. They Look At You:

And I must tell you, there is always a different look from them. They look at you in your expected and unexpected period. And this can get you nervous or unease at the moment,(smiles), that’s just it.

3. They’re Nervous Around You:

On one occasion or the other, they are nervous around you, even at sighting you make them want to pee on their body. Talking to you at times makes them stay or start stammering.

4. They Give You More Personal Attention:

Of course, they do, they always want to give you that Personal Attention either to talk to you, play with you or help you do things they know more than you (when you ask).

All these and other points are the signs that identify that someone is Crushing on you or you are Crushing on them.
So, whenever you start having these minor feelings, don’t think you are falling in love. It is a sign that you are Crushing on him/her or he/ she is Crushing on you.

We all have crushes no matter what stage of life we are in.
Most of the time, the reasons for having crushes are as simple as, “She’s pretty or He’s so nice to me”. However, some of us still have problems with identifying crushes or are in complete denial of them. Even when it’s so obvious to everyone around us.


Even after analyzing these signs, you have a Crush. At the end of the day, the result of having a Crush on someone is unpredictable.
You cannot always expect things to go according to plan. You have to be emotionally ready when you learn your Crush does not reciprocate the same feelings you have for them.

When that time comes, you have to know that it’s alright and ok, and it’s not the end of the World. It may feel like that but it’s not.
You must move on, and still overcome, be stronger and be even more prepared for the next one.
Just keep in mind that you are going to be okay.
