Many a times friends being from ‘just friends’, jump up to ‘I like you more than friends’. Sometimes, you are caught unaware by the revelation as you don’t know how to react.

You wonder if you should accept your friend’s proposal or turn them down. It could also come as a pleasant surprise to you if you have feelings for your friend as well.

Here are 8 unmistakable signs that your friend is crushing on you:

1. Always lends a helping hand

Your friend jump at every chance they can to help you out. Most people don’t take time out of their days to do someone a favor or get them something they need more than once for someone they absolutely have no interest in. Someone who is set on looking after you truly likes you and wants to make you happy. Your friend helps you even if it means that they are putting themselves out of their way for you he likes you.

2. Speak highly about you to others

Your friend talks pretty highly of you to friends, family or even talk you up to your own friends. They most likely want to let the people around them know what they think of you themselves and want them to think the same. It’s very important that if they like you that the people in their lives to like you as much as they do.

3. Nobody is good enough for you

Your friend constantly tells you that the people you date aren’t good enough for you or that you deserve “better.” He’ll find reasons – however insignificant they might be – that the person in question isn’t worthy of your time. It isn’t that you have a knack for choosing losers (or maybe you do), it might be that he’s hoping you’ll choose him instead.

4. Awkward around you?

If your friend blushes while talking to you, has become shy around you, seem to be on edge whenever you are left alone together, just seem nervous when you’re around, he likes you. If you find your friend doing these things then they may be quite worried about embarrassing themselves in front of you.

5. They go out of their way for you

If your friend ever goes above and beyond for you, then there will be a reason, the most probable one being that they have crush on you. They will do things for you that clearly don’t fit within the expectations of a just-a-friend description. They often take it upon themselves to help you, even if it means that they are putting themselves out of their way for you.

6. They like to introduce you to new things

When people have an attraction to another person, they often want to share details about their life with them. They want to share new things, in the hopes that the one they are attracted to, will pick them out above the rest. So if your friend has started sharing more about their life with you, then it could be an indicator that they want to be more than just friends or way more “worst case scenario” has a big crush on you.

7. Your opinion matters to him

Your friend will consistently consult you when problems arise in his life, and you get the feeling that he takes your advice more seriously than he does any other friend’s. This, alone, might not indicate that he has feelings for you but, combined with everything else, it might suggest that a little something-something is brewing under the surface.

8. Spotted staring

Sometimes, you catch your friend staring at you with a peculiar expression on his face – like he has much on his mind and wants to say something. You might find as well that whenever you look at them, they drop their gaze on you and look elsewhere. But, when you prompt him by asking what’s up, he just turns red and mutters “nothing.” This embarrassing look-away shows they have an interest in you in more than just a friendly way, this is a clear indication of a crush.
