Finding that special someone will change your life. But love isn't just about holding hands and saying nice things to one another. The fact is that love is almost always the fruit of a crush. Love sometimes starts the first time you see someone, when your heart beats wildly to say, "This is it."

So what is a crush anyway? A crush is someone you think stands out from the crowd. You see him or her in a different light from others, and the crush is usually someone you admire. You might admire that person’s physical appearance, personable attitude, academic performance, or unique talent. Scientists say that seeing your crush helps your heart get stronger and healthier. So you know what to do if you want a healthy heart. If you have a crush for almost three months and still like him or her, I believe it means you are in love. Psychology says; "If you're crush longs more then three months, then it's love"

But what if you aren't sure? Here's how you can tell if you have a crush one somebody.

Clear Signs You Like Someone

Sometimes the signs are not clear on the surface. You need to look deeper to see the truth.

1. When You See Your Special Someone, Your Heart Beats as Fast as It Can

Whenever he/she’s around, passes by, or accidentally crosses paths with you, your heart turns to panic mode. In this state, your heart beats the fastest you can imagine. Imagine being chased by a dog growling with excitement at the prospect of tearing at your butt. After running as fast as you could, your heart would beat quickly. But seeing your crush will make it beat even harder than being chased by a dog. The feeling is such that even your toes begin to shake. It's a nervous and sort of frustrated feeling that heats up your veins.

Why Does Your Heart Beat Fast When You See Your Crush?

Your heart beats quickly because seeing your crush triggers an adrenaline rush. It also may trigger other chemical reactions, resulting in feelings of euphoria, or extreme happiness, and obsession.

2. Whenever Your Crush Is Near or Is Talking Directly to You, Your Normal Facial Expressions and Gestures Are Hard To Control

Of course, your crush probably has no idea that you have a crush on him/her, so he or she interacts with your normally. And whenever those lucky times come, whatever you are doing stops completely. He or she speaks to you like a casual friend while you sit there with a dried throat and sweaty hands (this is also caused by the adrenaline), putting on your best poker face to hide your internal freak out.

When you smile, it is non-stop and from ear to ear, while a rush of sweat flows all over your body, especially in your underarms (even though you’re in a fully air-conditioned room or cold weather).

Or, if you don't succumb to the out-of-control smile, you turn yourself into a human stone, literally not moving or even speaking.

Some people even pee, but that happens to one out of 100.

3. You Want to Talk about This Person all the Time

You might not notice this, but your friends will begin saying, “You already told us about that," when you broach the topic of this person. In the course of normal conversations, you may bring him up 10 to 15 times a day. Some go over that range.

Most telling is when you want to bring up a point related to your crush, even though it's barely related to what you and your friends are talking about. And when you hear his or her name, you say, “What? What about him/her? Please tell me! I’ll buy you some treats, come on!” Sounds a little bit exaggerated, right? But no, these are all things that actually happen.

4. When Your Friends Ask You Why You’re Acting So Weird about Your Crush, You Would Die Rather Than Admit Anything Is Unusual

When your friends observe the first three symptoms, they will definitely form conclusions or questions. And they'll especially think about it during those lulls in class when your teachers are teaching lullaby topics that are putting the class to sleep. They'll turn it over in their minds and then confront you about it. And when that time comes, you deny, deny, deny. Even when your friends jokingly blackmail you into admitting you have feelings, you still deny it.

You probably know you do (though you may not). Either way, I am sure you can't hide it from yourself forever. Am I right? And you will not be able to hide it from your friends forever either. There will be times when everybody’s sharing secrets, or maybe you'll just tell your best friends. Well, if I were you, I would tell my friends about it, because I am sure they would completely support you. Or at least, they would intend to. Because, in reality, when your crush is around, their idea of support may go something like shouting, “Oh my God, somebody is approaching!” and start to tease you—and the teasing is likely to persist for the whole day. While you will be the only trying to act like a sane person, standing like a stone and smiling in front of him/her. The one thing in your mind will be, “I’m going to kill you guys!” It's the sad reality, but that’s the character of true friends (mostly). Experienced it? Devastating, right? That’s okay. At least you have your supporters.

5. You Stare at Photographs of Your Crush All of the Time

When you finally accept that you have a crush on someone, you get that person's complete schedule (if possible) so you can wait in a strategic spot until he or she comes by. The rush you get means your day is complete. Girls do this more often than guys, but it is not gender specific.

And, you are likely to find a picture—either on social media or by taking it when your crush's attention is occupied, and you will look at it all of the time. You may even make it your phone’s wallpaper (as if you two were in a relationship). When no one's around, you find yourself looking at it. You may even say, “Hi, baby!”—don’t you deny it!

So there you have it—the five ways to determine your real state of mind and heart when it comes to someone who turns you upside down. Just keep in mind to think twice whether you tell your friends, because you don’t know how crazy it was when everybody knows about it.

Remember This:

All love starts with a crush. It came before your parents fell in love. It came before your grandparents fell in love. And it will come before your grandchildren have children. There is always a crush that comes first before anything else.

In your case what is your experience when your crush is approaching?

      I still have these symptoms. December 6, 2017 I met a guy in a dating app. We hit it off really well, he then went to NC to go visit his family and although he was far we still message each other and sometimes talk on the phone. Before he left, we met at the mall and my heart was beating wildly, my face was crazy red, I couldn't stop smiling, and my hands were non stop shaking. I was sitting on a bench waiting for him to come ,and then poof he was there. His smile, his eyes, and everything was so perfect. When he walked up I honestly felt time stop. We went Christmas shopping for his family, and during that time we had our first kiss. We had entered the store Spencer's, we went to explore the back part of the store and kept playing around, we decided to leave the store but before we left we stop by the shirts and the way he looked at me was just so amazing, he lean in and I lean in and we kissed. I felt fireworks explode I wasn't able to stop smiling. After Christmas, he came back we hanged out a bit and the new years came. I asked my dad if he could spend new years with us and he had said yes. We spent the new year together. A few days pass and I felt heavy like something was happening. I messaged him and told him that I felt like we were drifting apart and he told me that he felt the same way. We didn't text much after that until one day I received a message that broke me. he started off with saying that I was an amazing girl but that he didn't have time for a relationship(the message was along paragraph). (we weren't together). I honestly felt my heart break, I was in shocked, I've never felt so much pain. I honestly felt weird with his response and although he isn't admitting it, I new that he had met someone else. I wasn't mad because he met someone else because I cant stop him from either liking or loving someone else but I was upset because he tried to sugar code it. Me being me I sent him a long paragraph. I told him that no matter what I'll still be here, we got into a fight and told me that if I ever needed help or a friend that he will be there. During the pass days I texted him as friend because I had the hope that maybe he will realize that I was the one, until one day he told me that he will block me from social media. A few days later I see that he unfriended me from everything. February came and I found out that he got a gf. Months later I found out that they broke up. Another 2 months I get this feeling were I feel like something is either going to happen or it already happened. I decided to text him and he said that he was fine and that he thank me for checking up on him. The next day I get the same feeling but stronger so I texted him he took forever to response until he messaged me back, I told him about my feeling and he sent me a picture of his face. He had a bruise/scratch, we had stopped a group of guys from stealing from two ladies. After that he added me back to most social medias. My feeling for him haven't changed and yes I've tried talking to some guys but I never felt the same way I felt when I met him. Till today 7/22/18 I still feel my heart beat fast when I see a picture of him or if I hear his name. So I know for sure that I still have a crush on him, and I hope that one day he will give me another chance.

      I had a thousand things to say to you, and a thousand reasons not to.

      I never thought I'd fall in love with you. Its something that breaks my heart so badly. Why? Idk... Really. The moment I walked towards you was a day that changed my life forever. I still remember that day like it was yesterday. You were so shy... you blushed when I introduced myself. I honestly don't know when was the moment I fell for you. Its just that I would find myself thinking of you so much it drove me crazy. It was something I had never experienced before. I started to avoid you because I felt like I was going to die if you looked at me. My heart would beat so fast at the sound of your voice. Idk if you liked me but idk really care. Because it won't change what I feel every time I think of you. There are some days that I hate myself for liking you and then there are days that I would want to just talk. Idk why I feel this way. I pray that I may feel numb towards you. But its so hard to fight the feeling. I honestly don't wish to see you anymore. Its not like we had anything anyways. But I sincerely wish that you pursue your dreams and prosper in life. Make yourself and your family proud. As for me if I ever see you again I don't know what I might do...probably avoid you. Because this whole thing has caused my so much pain. I want to move on in my life but I feel like I can't. Its been about five years... I need closure. But I'm not sure how to get it. I never told you any of this and I probably never will. Some things are better left unsaid...

      So yeah I have a crush on multiple different guys but there is this one guy that I can't get over and he's perfect he listens to ppl, he's in honors , he's like really fast, and he's cute, but he is already in a relationship with someone else and ever since I don't get butterflies anymore but I know for a fact that I still love him very much because I still get a little jump in my stomach when I think he's looking my direction other than that I Don't get too nervous around him and I would be really happy of we were just friends like really really really great friends because I don't want him to ruin the relationship he's already in , I want him to be happy too so I would definitely be fine with just being friends.

One day when I was talking to him my heart suddenly felt warm and like racing which was weird because I've never felt like this before ever, and I've been in a relationship before but haven't had this feeling. Im happy around him but whenever I see him I don't fell nervous or anything again today my heart felt like that today. I just wished to know what this feeling is...

      I have a crush on this guy. I mean he isn’t that cute, but he has dimples. Looks aren’t what matter. He is really sweet. And funny. He gives me his sweater and stuff. But I can’t telk if he likes me that cause he does that to everyone. He gave me a birthday present on my birthday, and we talk like friends. Idk. It’s fifty fifty. I’m fine either way. I like our friendship the way it is but I’d be fine if we had something more.

      I have had a crush on this girl for as long as I’ve known her but I didn’t tell her because she’s been in a relationship, out of respect of them. She broke up with him while I was over s I tried to calm her down and tell her everything was ok because she was a good friend too. After awhile she said she knew I liked her and that she liked me too but couldn’t say. She asked to kiss me and of course I said yes, I didn’t do much because I wanted this to be a good pure moment in our lives. I loved every second of it. I woke up the next morning and she texted me saying we couldn’t do anything like that anymore. I feel used honestly, I hope something good happens soon.

      I´ve never really had a crush which is weird and it did worry me for a long time but when I first got to Highschool I was always getting flustered around this guy and I would freak out.This one time I went to school really sad since I had failed one of my quizzes but when I got to Science he talked to me leaving me smiling,giggling and happy the rest of the day which felt awesome.

But I have changed how I see it) probably we just want to win the rose. Couple must never stop working out for the betterment of the relationship. What I like and appreciate so much on women is that, though some men hurt their feelings yet they are still in love they would fight to the end for the succession of their relationship. ( I salute to all women for that!).

      Yes, I do believe you're right... both parties, but particularly the man tends to go out of their way to impress the other in the beginning and once they've one the affeciton... it seems to stop. Women could certainly try to help keep the "magic" alive, but I think men stop too much too quick!

      I read some advise about that staff. And it goes like this "When the fun starts to fade away, don't stop doing things that kept the fun together" The way I interpret it, I think the couple or I mean the guy must do all the things that made a girl smile. In the case of crush, maybe we should continue appreciating the beauty of whatever the reason you've like that person. Relationship that was been lively as it was always been the most special one. (which I am intended to have in the future, hope so)

      It is really nice when those same excited feelings that exist during the crush carry over into the relationship once it becomes love... but all too often those feelings tend to simmer down and lose their luster. I wish it could stay that way forever!

      This is really cute! I love the way I feel when I'm crushing on someone. It comes with such innocence and excitement! Unfortunately they usually all come to an end; either you get over your crush and move on or you get with your crush and the "crushing feelings' soon die down or turn to love.

      PaoloJpm--interesting perspective on having a crush on someone! In the learning Center under the The Hubtool--Photo Capsule, it explains how to properly give credit for photo use. I wanted to suggest two site to get photos in the public domain. Two sites I use are wikipedia commons and morguefile. Both have great photos that are legal to use. Good luck! :o)
