Puberty hits you. Your body is changing and you don’t think of boys as gross or rude anymore. You change those words with.... attractive or maybe cute. Your heart starts to pound when he is across the room, hanging out with his bros while you’re sneaking a glance at him while chatting with your friends. Accurate? I guess so cause I’ve experienced it too.
Of course it’s a puppy love. A kind of intense love but at the same time is a shallow romantic attachment, typically happens when you were a child or an adolescent. And you’re experiencing it right now! Sometimes the feeling is unbearable and you want to show how you feel about him. There are a few hints and ways that you can give.
Say a simple “hi” or “hello” when you see him. Show that you notice his presence. No matter how nervous you feel, don’t forget to wave and smile. If you see him in the class or hall, you can say, Good morning! How’s it going?” This will help your crush notice and remember you.

Giving a sincere compliment after you crush achieve something is usual. But a compliment on regular things is superb. You can compliment on their personality, traits, skills, or even how they look that day. For example, “Wow. You’re good in playing guitar. Where did you learn it?”. But don’t give them too much compliments as it’ll feel not genuine and uncomfortable.
If your crush in popular with his witty humor, laughing at his jokes will be one of the best way to show that you’re interested in what he’s saying. It also shows that you have the same sense of humor. Some of my friends told me that they can only initiate conversation and form bond with people who laugh at their jokes. It applies to any relationship and of course in your case too! But don’t laugh at his failure, it is considered as humiliating rather than entertaining.
You’re still in the middle school so it’s better not to cake your face up with make up. Choose the best style that suits you. And of course, last but not least, the best thing a girl can put on her face is a genuine smile. Wear something cute, you don’t have to look sexy cause it’s way too much for your age. Maybe you can put on that cute floral dress and a little bit of hair accessory like head band. Don’t try too hard to impress him, though. Show him the best version of your look naturally.
Millennials.. it is common for you to approach someone through social media. Add his account so you can have a picture of what he usually does, who his friends are, or his hobbies and interests. Don’t only collect information from his social media, but contact him first! Discuss or ask about things he has mentioned in his account. He’ll notice that you pay attention to his posts.
Not in a perverted way, but in a playful manner. Touch his shoulder or upper hand when you joke around or when he talks. But please be gentle, you don’t want to hurt him or make him feel uncomfortable just because you’re getting over excited.
You have given your crush the hints that you like him and now it’s the last stage. You can tell him by saying that you think of him as more than a friend (saying ‘I like you’ directly might scare him). You can tell him in person, by text, by cards, or notes. Anything but friends.
Never let him know your feeling from the mouth of another person other than you. After telling him about your feeling, you can ask how he feels about you. But if you’re too shy or too afraid of rejection, you can look for hints that they might like you back. You can ask your friends or pay attention to how he treats you.
To guide you, here are some questions that you might ask to yourself. Maybe you’ll have the idea of reciprocation.
In brief, if he likes you back, he’ll show his interest in your personal life. First or foremost, before you confess you feeling, make sure that you’re prepared to hear the result. Even if you’re rejected, it’s better to remain friends with him.
