7 Things You Say to Your Crush and What It Really Means ...


There are things you say to your crush that you don't exactly mean. You're not trying to lie to him--you're just trying to make him like you. If he knew how often you stalked his social media sites or that you memorized his schedule, he'd be scared. That's why the things you say to your crush aren't always the most honest.

"I Didn't Know You Liked That Band!"

Of course you know he liked the band you just so happened to mention to him. You saw that he liked the page on his Facebook, that he has pictures of their concert (that he went to with some blonde girl you ended up stalking), and that he posted their lyrics on his timeline. One of the most common things you say to your crush is something to keep him from knowing how often you check up on him.


"Did You Cut Your Hair?"

You ask him like it's a question, even though you know the answer. You stare at him whenever you get the chance, so you know exactly what his old style looked like. Even if he only had one tiny strand of hair cut, you'd know the difference.


"This Dress? It's so Old."

When he compliments you on your outfit, all you want to do is squeal and flail. Of course, you need to keep your cool if you don't want to ruin your chance with him, so you just smile and brush off the compliment. If you act like it's no big deal, he'll think people always comment on how beautiful you look.


"I like Being Single."

Sure, you liked being single back before you met him, but now all you want to do is be his girlfriend. You're eager to confess your undying love for him, but that wouldn't go so well, so you force yourself to swallow your feelings. You can let him think you're an independent, happy woman without him, instead.


"...of Course I Was Listening."

If you're lucky enough to have a conversation with your crush, you want to hear what he's saying. But when you're so very close to him, it's easy to get lost in his baby blue eyes. You could reach out and caress his face if you wanted to--well you do want to, but you know he wouldn't be too pleased about it.


"I Was Busy."

If it takes you an hour to answer his text message, you can claim that you were busy, even though you were really rewriting your reply over and over again. He doesn't need to know that, though. Let him think that you actually have a life.


"She's Gorgeous."

It's the worst day of your life, because your crush just showed you a picture of his crush. You thought he might've had feelings for you, but he just proved you wrong. Of course, you can't let him know that he just shattered your heart. You have to put on a smile and tell him how gorgeous that girl in the photo is.

When you're crushing on a cutie, it's hard to handle yourself like a sane human being. Have you ever said any of the things listed above to your crush? What else have you fibbed to him about?

The second one. My crush sassed me for saying "nice hair" to him when he got it cut. Then I got distracted because he hadn't shaved. Oops

Lol that first point was soo true!! I love it

Oh my goodness! I have said some of these to someone that I have known ever since I was a baby but I never saw that that was why!!! But he is also 4 years older which is a little far since he is about to graduate and I am still a freshman.. Especially the hair cut one and the one about the other girl which in the latest scenario was my best friend.. Haha

I feel like saying this stuff and most of it meaning almost exactly the opposite is one reason that guys complain that girls are hard to understand. Why not just say what you actually mean and communicate clearly?

The last one is soooo true

The last point is exactly what I said to my crush when he showed me a pic of his girlfriend. 😭

I agree

I disagree with a lot of these based on what my boyfriends taught me about the way guys think :P

I've only said "I was busy" to my crush. My crush is shy and doesn't talk to me as much as he did last year. He has never complimented me on my outfit, told me a band he likes, etc and I'm always the one who starts the conversation. He keeps looking at me in class and my friend keeps saying he likes me, but I don't think he does 🙁🙁
