Last updated on June 1, 2024 by Michelle Devani

Have you ever felt that you’re gradually falling out of love after your crush doesn’t reciprocate your feelings? You’re getting tired of seeking for his attention, or doing things that amuse him but it doesn’t show any result. You finally decided to move on and maybe you want to make sure he knows it.


How To Tell Your Crush You Don’t Like Him Anymore? 

There are several ways to tell him you don’t like your crush anymore.

1. Ignore Him

Ignoring someone is one of the most common and the easiest way to let someone knows how we feel about them without having to say a word. Action speak louder than words, and ignoring your crush shows that you’re not interested in him. Try to ignore him in several occasions whether in face-to-face meeting or in chatting.

In real life, act as if he doesn’t exist. Even if you’re in the same room with him, talk with everyone but him. If you don’t want to look that avoidant, you can still talk to him but do it as little as possible. If you happen to talk to him, don’t give him the attention and avoid eye contact, look at other things instead. Give him the look of boredom or maybe tell him that you have other things to do.

By doing so, you don’t show any interest in him. Show him that you’re too busy hanging out with other people that you’re not aware of his presence.

3. Short Conversation And Replies

Don’t engage in beating around the bush-like conversation with him either in real life or social media. Avoid small talks. Listen more to what he has to say but don’t share too much about your life.
