There are loads of creepy things not to do when you have a crush. When you have a crush, sometimes your emotions can get to the better of you, and you start to do things that are completely out of character, things that some people, in fact, most people, might describe as creepy! I think we can all agree that the last thing you want to be seen as when trying to impress someone you like is creepy, so it is definitely worth your time to consider what your usual behaviours are when you are faced with interacting with somebody that you fancy! Allow us to show you a little taste and separate some rights from some wrongs. Take a look through this list of creepy things not to do when you have a crush.
1. Go by Their Place
This is one of the top creepy things not to do when you have a crush. No matter how much you want to, you need to avoid going past their home just to see if you can peep at what they might be doing. Here’s the thing, if you can see them, it’s pretty likely that they are going to able to see you too; do you really want to risk being considered a stalker just so you can get a glimpse of what TV show they might be watching? What would you say if they came out and asked what you were doing? It’s not worth thinking about!
2. Heavy Eye Contact
Eye contact is a vital part of effective flirting, but there is definitely a point where it can become unnerving rather than exciting. Try not to stare too hard at your crush, and in particular, don’t go into that glazed over mode where you look like you are in a daze. It’s best to catch their eye and then break the contact, it will leave them wanting more instead!
3. Reference Social Media
A sure-fire way to let your crush know that you have been stalking them is to bring up posts and photos that you saw on their profiles many weeks ago. Be careful about the kinds of things that you choose to talk to them about; you don’t want to find yourself in a situation where you have to explain exactly why you know that they went to Orlando with their family seven years ago!
4. Attend All Their Events
Try to show a little restraint and don’t just show up to every single social event that you know your crush is going to be attending. One or two is a coincidence, nine or ten is straight up stalking! It’s best to leave a little mystery in things; don’t just make yourself present and available at all times because the more clingy you seem to be, the less likely your crush is going to be to respond positively.
5. Get Possessive
Remember that the relationship and connection you have with your crush is mostly formed in your head, so it makes absolutely no sense to be getting possessive of them when you aren’t even dating. They can go out with whoever they want to at this point. It isn’t your place to interfere.
