7 Childish Things Men do when They're Crushing on You ...

By Holly

It's not always easy to let someone know that you have feelings for them. That's why some men might revert to acting like children when they develop a crush on you. You make them nervous, so they can't think of any other way to act. Here are some ways a grown man with a crush will act like a kid on a playground:

1 He Brags

Is he always bragging about how great he is at baseball and how many women are into him? That might just be his personality, but if it's not, it's a huge sign that he's interested in you. He wants you to see just how awesome he is so that you'll start to develop feelings for him. It's not a great method, but he thinks it'll work.

2 He Stares

If he's shy, he might not approach you at all. He'll just stare at you from across the room, hoping that you notice he finds you attractive. Of course, this method usually comes across more creepy than cute. But if you know a guy is shy, and he's always looking your way, you might have to be the one to walk up to him.

3 He Makes Fun of You

Does he make fun of the way you talk and your love for Benedict Cumberbatch? If he's teasing you in a playful way, then he definitely likes you. Think about little boys who push down the girl that they have a crush on. It's the same idea.

4 He Puts down Other Men

It's childish for a man to point out another man's flaws, but it'll happen. If someone likes you, then they won't want to hear you talking highly about any other men that you know. In order to assure that you won't do something stupid like date those men, a guy that likes you will tell you nasty stories about him. He wants you all to himself.

5 He Tells Dirty Jokes

Sometimes dirty jokes are funny. A lot of the time, they're inappropriate. If a man tells you dirty jokes, it's because his mind is thinking about one thing. He wants sex to be on your mind as well, and he thinks that telling a dirty joke about it will do the trick.

6 He Fidgets

Even if the man you're talking to sounds confident, he might actually be freaking out in his head. To figure out if he's nervous, look at his hands. Is he fidgeting with his hands? Does he have trouble keeping eye contact? If he does, then he must be nervous around you.

7 He Tickles You

It's not surprising that men like to get physical. If he can't kiss you, then he's going to try to touch you in some other way. He might tickle you when he's in a playful mood or touch the small of your back when you're walking together. If he takes any opportunity he can to touch you, then he's definitely interested in being more than friends.

Men are confusing, but if you take a few moments to really think about the way they think, they're easier to understand. They don't always flirt like we do, but they have specific methods. Has a man ever done any of these things to try to flirt with you?
