How‌ ‌to‌ ‌Start‌ ‌a‌ ‌Relationship‌ ‌With‌ ‌Your‌ ‌Crush‌ ‌

Being in a romantic relationship is a wonderful thing. It’s great to spend time with someone who makes you feel warm and tingly. Knowing you can count on someone and share your emotions with them is rewarding. It’s that part leading up to the beginning of a relationship that can be confusing. If you’re not sure what to do when you start having feelings for someone, read on. These tips will help you figure out how to start a relationship with your crush.

Get Noticed

If you want to stand a chance at getting to know this person, you need to first make sure they notice you. This doesn’t have to be an overly complicated process. In fact, you don’t want to go overboard when attempting to be seen. Just make the effort to say hello once in a while or ask genuine questions of interest to spark up a conversation.

Show Interest

You may not exactly know how to start a conversation with a guy in a confident manner, but it’s essential that you try if you ever want to get anywhere in your pursuits. You need to show that you’re interested in him as a person. This doesn’t mean you want to fawn over him or hang on to his every word. That just seems desperate. Be genuine in your interest. Find out what you have in common. Ask him about his hobbies. Share some of your own. This is where you work to get to know each other better.

Be Brave

Once you begin to feel comfortable talking to your crush, the next step is to show signs of romantic interest. This requires some courage on your part. It can be a risk to put yourself out there, but there are some subtle ways you can begin to show you’re into this person. Smile shyly, then look away. Another time, you may want to hold eye contact. These are both universal signals of romantic pursuit. You can also say a lot with your body language. Lean in closer when you’re talking. Place your hand on his arm for emphasis. Small gestures matter. It might sound scary, but living in the purgatory of not knowing how your potential feels about you is far worse. Whether they like you or don’t, it is better to find out and adjust your feelings from there.

Signal Your Availability

There are ways you can let your crush know that you’re single without being blunt about it. Talk about what you do in your free time, making sure to emphasize who you’re spending that time with. This shows that you’re friendly and confident and that you have your own life to lead, while also indicating that there is no romantic partner in the mix.

Show Your Personality

When working to turn your crush into a romantic relationship, you absolutely must always be true to yourself. No relationship is worth putting on an act. Playing a role is exhausting. It’s essential that you be yourself and show your true personality to your love interest. That way, you can be confident that he genuinely likes and wants to get to know you. The best relationships are built on honesty and authenticity. Trying to be what you think your crush wants will only make you unhappy, and would be lying to the person you like more than anyone in the world. They should like you for you and vice versa.

Reach Out

Once you’ve established regular contact with the one you’re interested in, be sure to keep it up. Reach out to him through various methods such as texting, social media or even calling on the phone if he’s into it. Staying in touch is essential to continuing to grow your friendship and to show your interest.

Get Together

If you’re talking in school, at work, and touching base through text, that’s great. However, you’ll also want to get together in person outside of the usual places you see each other. This can be with a group of friends to start out if that’s more comfortable for you. Eventually, you’ll need to just take the plunge and ask him to do something fun with you. Choose something you’ve already discussed and know that you both enjoy. That will be a natural way to take things into the real world.

Don’t Play Games

Finally, there’s no need to play games like hard to get or waiting to text him back. If you really like him, it’s okay to be direct. He will appreciate your confidence and you can feel good knowing you’re showing real maturity.

Keep these tips in mind when you want to start a relationship with your crush. This can be an awkward and vulnerable time, but your efforts will be worth it in the long run.
