By Holly

You don't want your feelings for a boy to get out of hand. That's why you need to learn the proper way to handle your crushes. That way, you won't end up with your heart shattered and your reputation ruined. Keeping that in mind, here are a few things that smart women do when they start crushing on someone new:

1 Introduce Themselves

Introduce Themselves You can't date a guy that you've never spoken to before. If you see a cutie, be brave and walk right up to him. He won't think you're strange for introducing yourself. After all, it's not like you're proposing to him. You're just making a friendly gesture. Besides, if he thinks you're cute too, he'll be relieved that you made the first move!

2 Find out if He’s Single

Even if his girlfriend doesn't mind it, you'll end up with a broken heart once you discover the truth. That's why the first thing you should do when you develop a new crush is find out what his relationship status is. Then you can decide what your next move will be.

Your brain usually knows better.

7 Stay Positive and Be Patient
