Are you thinking “how do I tell him I like him?” right now? If you want to tell your crush that you like him, it can be a little scary. That’s why I’ve put together this list of things to keep in mind when trying to get the ball rolling on a potential romance with someone new.

Everything from how to approach the topic, what kind of reaction you’ll get – whether it will go well or not – and even how long before he responds after one of these discussions! In addition, I’ll also offer some tips for handling any awkward situations that might arise during these exchanges between friends-turned-lovers…

Be confident.

Confidence is a big part of the equation. It’s important to be yourself and not afraid to speak your mind, but it also helps if you don’t take things personally if someone doesn’t like what they hear. If someone says something negative, don’t let it affect how much confidence you have in yourself.

It’s also important not to overthink things or worry about what other people think; everyone has different opinions on anything at any given time so just relax and enjoy being around them!

Be honest and open.

Don’t overshare. There’s nothing worse than a girl who tries to be someone she’s not, or worse yet, who thinks that her feelings are more important than those of the person she likes. The latter can be devastating if you’re wrong about your assumptions (which often happens) and it causes unnecessary tension in a relationship where there isn’t room for that kind of thing anyway.

Don’t be afraid of rejection: If you think he might reject your advances because he wants someone else instead of himself as well, then maybe it’s time for some self-reflection! If this is something that concerns you enough to make changes in how much time/attention/whatever else goes into interacting with him then go ahead–you deserve happiness after all!

Be straightforward.

The best way to tell him how you feel is by being straightforward. Don’t be afraid to tell him you like him, don’t be afraid to ask him out on a date and don’t be afraid of telling him that you’re not ready for a relationship just yet.

Be yourself!

You know that old saying, “Be yourself”? Well, it applies here. You should be yourself and let your feelings come through. Don’t try to hide them or pretend they don’t exist—if someone likes you back, they’ll be able to tell by the way you act around them (even if they haven’t said anything yet).

But there’s more than one way of being yourself: one way might be more comfortable than another; maybe not everyone will like your personality type or style of speaking/acting/thinking/etc., but that’s okay because different people have different tastes! Some people can relate better with other types of personalities and styles than others do so if someone doesn’t like what she sees in yours then maybe she needs some time away from other people who don’t share similar interests as hers does? Maybe there’s something else going on inside her head right now besides just liking someone else instead? Or maybe all this means nothing at all because we’re talking about how long ago this happened anyway…

Express your feelings.

Be yourself. You don’t have to be shy or scared of telling him how you feel, because he’ll understand that it’s just a phase of life and eventually everything will work out for the best.

Don’t be afraid to show your feelings. If he doesn’t respond positively when you tell him how much he means to you or what makes him special, then it may be time for some self-reflection on his end so that both parties can move forward in their relationship with confidence and ease (but also without regret in case things don’t work out).

Initiate a conversation with him.

It’s important to initiate a conversation with him. Ask him questions, and make sure you’re asking the right ones.

Ask him what advice he would give you about your relationship with him, or about dating in general. This will help you figure out what kind of person he is and how he interacts with other people, which can be useful information when deciding whether or not to pursue a romantic relationship with him.

Ask if there are any specific activities that interest both of you—such as going out for coffee or watching movies at home—and then suggest those activities together so that they are more likely to happen again next time around!

Rely on your friends to help you out.

To help you out, I’ve put together a list of tips and tricks that my friends have used to figure out how to tell someone they like them. These are all useful things to keep in mind if you want your next move on the path towards love!

Make eye contact.

Eye contact is an important part of any conversation. It’s one of the first things that people notice when they meet you, and it’s a good way to show someone that you care about what they have to say. Asking someone how they’re doing or whether they need anything can seem like it isn’t very personal, but making eye contact with them shows that you’re interested in their answer and want them to feel comfortable sharing it with you. Eye contact also shows confidence and respect—you aren’t just staring at the ground! It can be used as an opening line if necessary (just don’t overdo it).

Take advantage of the situation.

If you’re friends with him, take advantage of the situation. If you’re in class with him and you get a chance to talk to him alone for five minutes, use it! And if he’s at work or at a party and he starts talking about his life, try asking questions about how he got where he is today. You might be surprised at what he has to say and how open he can be in front of other people.

If your relationship is still new enough that neither one has been dating anyone else (or even really into each other), then this may not be such an issue yet—but don’t wait too long before taking action!


In conclusion, telling a guy you like him is a lot easier than you might think. Just remember to be yourself and express your feelings in an honest way. The more confident and open you are, the better chance of success there will be!
