We all have that person our hearts beat faster for, whom we wish we could date, but for some reason, we’re not. Sometimes, they may not even have an iota of care or love for you. The sooner you realise this, the better for you, otherwise, they may take you for granted. These signs should help you know that it is time to move on from your crush and get a real relationship.
–Your friend tells you to stop
If a friend has taken her time to tell you something she knows you don’t want to hear, that’s because you need to hear it. You should take it seriously, even if it hurts. And if him, or someone close to him, has said it? You definitely need to try to get over him and move on.
–He asks you for dating advice
If he is always talking to you about other girls, he’s not trying to make you jealous or play some sort of game – chances are, he just sees you as a friend, and nothing more. #Friendzone.
–No response when you tell him you like him
Very few girls have the courage to tell a guy how they feel. After making this laudable effort, if he responds negatively and says he doesn’t feel the same way, don’t keep trying – move on.
–He ignores you
If he knows you like him or even suspects that you like him, and he spends most of his time ignoring you or running in the opposite direction when he sees you… take the hint. Chances are, he’s not just shy. He’s just not interested, but doesn’t know how to deal with it. Collect your pride and give it up.
–You have turned down other dating opportunities
If you have rejected other guys who were interested in a chance with your crush, and things don’t seem to be going anywhere, just stop the crush and give someone else a chance.
–It’s been years and nothing happened
If you’ve been crushing on this guy for years, and nothing has happened, it might be time to give it up. Try to make a move, and if it doesn’t work, move on. Don’t waste years of your life focusing on one person. There are better opportunities out there.
–He’s dating someone else
The most obvious sign that you need to get over your crush is when he is dating someone else. If this is the case, it is over. Waiting for them to break up is a complete waste of your time, and flirting with him or trying to break them up is not a nice thing to do at all.
