1. They make eye contact with you.

Yes, it feels awkward, because they feel awkward. As a shy person, making eye contact with a crush is like staring into the Sun. Everything in their gut is telling them to look away, which usually translates into a series of short glances in your direction.

2. They’re always willing to help out.

Any time you need a hand, be it picking up the food for the office meeting or moving into a new apartment, THEY WILL BE THERE. It’s an easy way for them to get some one-on-one time without the pressure of going on a date.

3. They post hints online.

When they’ve got something to say but have zero idea how to broach any type of subject with you, they’ll post something ambiguous online. So next time the shy person in your life posts a YouTube clip of Cheap Trick’s “I Want You To Want Me,” or lyrics to Carly Rae Jepsen’s new song, they’re definitely trying to tell you something without actually speaking words.

4. They ‘like’ most of what you post online.

Instagram post of your lunch? Double-tapped. Tweet about being in line at the DMV? Favorited. Checked in at the gym? Liked. Nothing’s off limits, they’re just desperately trying to show an interest in your interests.

5. They smile at you.

On any non-shy person, this would just be business as usual. Pass each other in the hall? A quick smile is normal. But for shy people, avoiding eye contact is an art they’ve perfected. So if you see each other and they actually look up and smile? They’re flirting, full speed ahead.

6. They turn into a normal flirty person when drunk.

Once they’ve gotten a few sips of liquid courage, they might actually send a few playful shoves your way.

7. They ask other people about you.

They definitely won’t ask you any personal details about yourself. Either you offer them up yourself, or they’ll ask other people that know you about your relationship status, etc.

8. They talk to you.

In person. They will start a conversation. Sure, the topic will be the weather or something else mundane, but in their mind, OMG WE’RE TALKING. TO EACH OTHER.

9. Substantial conversations happen via text.

Any confidence they have around you happens when they’re not actually around you. It’s much easier for them to be forward with you when they can send the text and immediately throw their phone across the room as if it’s on fire.

10. They bring up small details about you.

They try really hard not to sound creepy, but when they’re constantly the person that’s present for conversations but not talking, they pick up on a lot of small details. Yes, they remember that story you told about your vacation last year, don’t freak out if they bring it up later.

11. They recommend a book / movie / etc.

They probably won’t admit it, but that movie they just said you should watch is their all time favorite movie, and this is their way of seeing if you like the things they like. No pressure, this is just a huge make-or-break moment for them.

12. There’s sarcasm everywhere.

They can’t actually tell you they like you, so they’ll just casually drop a “God, you suck,” in your direction and call it a day. TC mark

Poetry Lovers! 💖

Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.

“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla
