Liking or having a crush on someone can bring up lots of feelings. You might be excited, worried about being rejected or you might be embarrassed.
When you like someone and you want them to know, there are a few things you can do to make it easier:
- Spend time together
Getting to know someone can help you decide whether you want to ask them out, and can help you see whether they like spending time with you too.
- Think about what they’d want
It’s not always a good time to ask someone out or tell them you like them. Think about how they might feel, and don’t do anything that would make someone else feel uncomfortable.
- Build your confidence
Feeling good about yourself can help you to feel more confident and able to share how you feel. We’ve got lots of advice on building confidence and self-esteem.
- Be casual
Keep your other interests and spend time with other people as well as talking to the person you like.
- Ask for advice
Ask your friends or someone you trust what they think, or get tips from message boards.
