Laugh or giggle when you’re at a loss for words, even if it doesn’t make sense. Try to think of something witty and smart and wonderful to say when talking, but actually think of it three hours after you spoke. Make sure you’re in a group setting with him/her because it’s easier to talk that way. Refuse to flirt unless you’re almost positive he/she is flirting with you. Only tell him/her any kind of true feelings through text messages. Fidget like a manic when talking to him/her, whether you’re tapping your feet, playing with your hair, or cracking your knuckles. Get to a point where you avoid him/her because you’re so nervous. So, it’s safe to know that I know what it’s like to be around the person you like when you’re shy. Stare at your crush until they notice you, then look away really quickly and act like you weren’t just staring. Wait for your crush to talk to you rather than approach them, even when you’re dying to talk. Blush the entire time you’re talking to your crush even though you have nothing to be blushing about. Go places you know your crush will be at, not trying to stalk him/her, but just in the hopes that he/she will talk to you. Hold eye contact for a few seconds because you read you should do that, then freak out about it. Talk to him/her online a lot but when you see them in person, clam up completely.
