It might be a daring eye stare, constant glances, or a shy peek once in a while. A person who has a crush on you finds it hard to not look at you at every possible chance. That person is constantly leading you with their eyes when you're speaking, giving presentations, or walking in and out the door.
If someone has a crush on you, they may try to get your attention by engaging with you more frequently, asking you questions, or otherwise seeking to be around you. The crush could go out of their way or change their schedule significantly just so they can be close and spend time together.
One of the most reliable signs a guy is crushing on you is that he usually heads in your direction when he sees you. And he points his feet and gazes toward you. He may be shy and not always look you in the eye, but watch how his body is oriented.
If you notice he is making more eye contact with you or you catch a guy staring at you, he is probably attracted to you. He may be enthralled by your good looks and may be fantasizing about kissing you. Perhaps he stares at you and smiles; that could mean he likes you, too.
Guys flirt with girls they like. He might ask you for your number, then call you the next day. He may act playful, wink, and flash a smile at you. If most of your conversations feel flirty, then odds are that he likes you as more than just a friend.
The most common sign of having a crush is the feeling that you have a million butterflies flying around inside you when that special someone is around. It can also feel like your heart does a leap when you see your crush and you feel warm and giddy.
They don't try to talk to you.
They'll probably try to make you laugh and they'll laugh at all your dumb jokes in return. They might even come up with excuses to talk to you, like asking, “Hey, did you get the homework done?” If they don't go out of their way to talk to you…it might be a sign to move on.
Here are the typical signs someone is attracted to you:
They smile at you. They make eye contact with you. They reach out and touch your arm, hand, back, or leg.
If you feel strange around your crush, you're not alone. That's how most people feel around their crushes. You might feel shy or giddy or maybe even shy and giddy all at once! Some people can't remember what they want to say when they see their crush.
When you're attracted to someone, it's hard to keep your eyes off them. You may even get caught awkwardly staring just a little too long but according to science, this is totally normal. And during these lingering gazes, your nervous system's sympathetic branch is stimulated which cause your eyes to dilate.
Staring can seem aggressive and predatory, and make your crush feel scared or uncomfortable in your presence. Try to casually glance over at your crush from time to time, or admire him or her using your peripheral vision. Try smiling or winking when you do make eye contact with your crush.
Even if we know the chemical processes in the brain, we may still not understand why crushes develop or why we are drawn to certain people and not others. There are five components to attraction and developing a crush: physical attractiveness, proximity, similarity, reciprocity, and familiarity.
Make subtle gestures
Even the most discreet expression can grab your crush's attention. Compliment their outfit, or smile and say hi when you pass them in the hall. After school, keep things flirty over text or Snapchat.

Crushes are rooted in fantasy and tend to happen when you don't know much about a person but idealize what they are like, Kolawole said.
He gives you genuine compliments
Most men who like a woman, like to let her know that she looks or smells nice. If a guy is really into you, he may also give you compliments for your character or intelligence, he might say something like: “You're so kind/sweet/caring/smart.”
That's why guys might be shy or quiet when interacting with someone they admire. Even if they feel confident and sure of themselves in other situations, it can be difficult to express those feelings when they have a crush on someone. So, it's natural for guys to act nervous around someone special.
