1. Smiling

Adam revealed that if someone is smiling around you frequently, this could be a sign that they have a crush on you. Being around their crush makes them happy, and they won't seem to be able to wipe the grin off their face.

2. Proximity

The second sign that someone has a crush on you is what Adam refers to as “proximity”. If someone likes you, you may notice that they are “finding excuses to be physically closer to you”, even if they haven't got anything to say.

3. Adjusting their clothing

If someone is constantly adjusting their appearance when they are around you, Adam says that this is a big sign that they like you. He likened this to “birds preening their feathers”, they'll constantly be adjusting their clothing, or fiddling with their hair to make sure they look better.

4. They ask for your help

Adam explained: “You tend to only ask for aid from people that you trust and or therefore are attracted to". So if they are regularly asking you for help, this may just be an excuse to speak to you, as well as them showing that they trust you.

5. Touching

One of the biggest signs to look for in someone who has a crush on you is that they will want to come into contact with you more than normal while you are speaking. For example, they might touch your arm, hand or back while speaking to them.

6. Laughter

When someone likes you, you’ll find that they think you are hilarious. Adam says another huge sign is that they’ll laugh at all of your jokes in an attempt to flatter you, and they think you are really great.

Other signs someone may like you include:

They respond quickly, message you often and use emojis

  • They pay close attention and remember things you've said

  • They mirror your actions, facial expressions, tone of voice or posture

  • They hold eye contact with you and compliment you

  • They ask you questions, whether that's about yourself or even something as simply as how you day's been
