Heya playa, I have a question for you. If your crushes friend asked you if you liked your crush, would you say yes or would you say no? Surprisingly most people say no even though they do have a crush on someone. So how do you answer yes to that question without it being awkward and weird? I’ll tell you how right after this.
Personally, I think the right thing to do is to say “yeah, I like them” but that may not always be the easiest thing to say. Think about it like this, by saying you don’t like your crush or flat out denying it, you only make it harder to build attraction with them later on.
Once they think you don’t like them they may start to lose interest in the possibility of you two being together. Most of the time if your crush’s friend asks if you like them, they’re doing it for one of several reasons.
- Your crush likes you back and wants to know where you stand.
- They may not actually like you back and may just be messing with you.
- They’re not sure where they stand but knowing where you stand may help sway their decision.
The best way that I’ve learned to be straight forward about what you want to say is to think ahead about how the news is gonna get back to them. If it’s for one of the three reasons, then simply standing up for how you feel is gonna make you look incredibly confident in front of them.
What tends to happen a lot in middle school and high school is that kids will run with that information and spread it around like a rumor. They turn it into something negative as if its bad for liking someone and you’re bad for doing it. Nothing can be further from the truth though. Being genuine and honest is perhaps the coolest thing you can do. However, you don’t want to just verbally lay out your feelings for your crush.
You’re much better off showing them how you feel and eventually asking them out. And if you do freeze up and say something like “No, I don’t like them. Where’d you get that idea from?”, the best way to recover is to change your approach when you talk to your crush and to be way more engaging with them. Yes, your words from before won’t really match up with your actions now but your actions now will speak far louder than your words.
What do you think though, have you ever been asked by someone if you like your crush? How did you respond? Leave your comment below and we’ll talk about it.
Don’t worry, we’ve all been in that type of situation before. It’s not the end of the world you did not completely blow your chances. Just make sure your next move is a smart one. Remember, your goal here is to eventually go out with them. So don’t hurt your chances before they begin.
