You don’t have to wonder anymore if that guy has a crush on you. The guy that has a crush on someone will often display most or all of these actions towards the object of their crush. Some of them may appear weird sometimes but hey let’s blame it on the crush. So, here are the 25 (weird) things guys do when they have a crush on you.
1. They call and/or text their crush nearly all the time.
He does this because the crush is constantly in his thoughts. He wants to be in constant communication with this person because the crush they have is like a drug that keeps them coming back for more. If you find that this guy is almost always calling you every other day or texting you every day to talk about nothing except check up on you and see how the weather is on your end, he certainly has a crush on you.
2. They always find an excuse to be near the person.
He’s always trying to hang out with this person. He may almost always ask them what they’re doing on a Saturday night and if they want to hang out. If he’s the shy one, he will always tag along with his friends to events or places he knows his crush will come to. In that way he gets the chance to be near his crush and have a glimpse of them.
3. They are conveniently almost always in places where their crush frequents.
You may also notice that somehow he happens to be in the same place as the crush almost all the time. This one can be a little creepy and weird if it happens all the time because then it borders on stalking, although they would appear not to care about this. But this one is one weird thing that some guys do when they have a super crazy crush on someone.
4. They compliment the person a whole lot more effusively than usual/normal.
Notice how he compliments the object of his crush more effusively than normal. Everything the crush does takes on an extra special allure because of the crush he has. For example, his crush may just have a normal walk that others would not consider any special, but to him, it’s not just a walk but a majestic and regal glide. Or he may find their smile extra special or their eyes sexy or something. And he makes sure to let his crush know just how amazing he thinks they are with all the effusive compliments.
5. He may start to open up to and confide in his crush in ways he would generally not confide in other people who are just friends.
If he is always willing to confide in this person even when he is generally a guy who doesn’t talk to his friends a lot about his personal life, then he has a serious crush on this person. Guys generally open up to persons they trust and have an affection and affinity towards.
6. They try to impress the person when they are around the person and are observing to see if the person notices or pays attention to their gestures.
Pay attention to his gestures around this person. Does he speak a little louder? Or maybe he acts all macho and talks big around this person and yet you know that’s not how he normally is. Lol. Yes, there is someone in the vicinity that he has a serious crush on.
Pay attention to where his attention is directed when he makes these grand gestures that show he’s clearly trying to impress someone. The one to whom his attention is directed is most likely the one he has a crush on. He’s also watching them while he tries to impress them to see if they are impressed by his displays.
7. He fixates on everything his crush says and is almost always leaning in towards his crush.
He hangs on their every word and would have an enchanted enraptured look on their face while listening to their crush talk. And if you pay attention to his body language, you will notice that he is leaning towards his crush like he wants to get very close to them.
8. He’s always quick to want to offer his crush a helping hand.
Notice how he is always the first on the scene where his crush needs help. If his crush is in distress, they want to be the first knight to the rescue. And in some extreme cases, he may even want to claim monopoly over helping his crush if there are others around. He does not want another encroaching on his territory.
9. They generally play over their conversations in their head when alone.
And if you had a sneak peek into his head when he’s alone and after a conversation with his crush, you will be surprised at how much playback of that conversation is going on inside his head. Playing back the conversations is a way of re-living the moment for him. He doesn’t want it to end.
10. They speak a little louder than usual when in close proximity to the person.
Do you have this guy friend who you know has a normal voice but then suddenly his voice takes on a different pitch when someone walks into the vicinity? His voice may become suddenly deeper and more highly pitched like he’s trying to sound more masculine and in charge? And you’re left wondering what that was all about right? Well, that person that made him suddenly change the way he speaks is more than likely the object of a secret crush.
11. They try to make eye contact often and look at the person a little longer than usual.
If you suspect a guy has a crush on you, just “accidentally” lookup in the direction of the room or space where he’s standing and you are likely to see his gaze on you. Depending on his nature, he may look away or return the stare with a slight naughty wink or glint, or smirk.
The shy guy would sheepishly smile back and look away immediately. The cocky and/or confident guy on the other hand would return the stare with that slight naughty glint or smirk or wink we spoke of.
Unless of course you also have the hots for him, don’t make it a habit to do this though or he may misinterpret it as meaning that you also have a crush for him hahaha.
12. They are thinking about the person all the time.
A guy who has a crush on someone is always thinking about their crush almost every minute of the day when he has nothing else to do. And this would almost always lead to him sending a text to this person or calling them.

For some guys, they become passive-aggressive and have a silent scowl on their face because they are jealous that their crush is talking with another guy.

23. His crush is all he mostly talks about, even his friends have noticed it.
We all know our guy friends do this. There’s this one person he is always gushing about. It’s almost as if this person can never do any wrong in his eyes.

24. He may in some cases ask his crush if they like someone else or have a crush on someone else.
