I can definitely relate to having a crush on someone, but just not knowing what to do. Whether it’s someone you don’t know that well or someone you’ve known for a long time, figuring out what to do next can be super tough!
Since every situation is unique, it’s hard to generalize an answer for you. However, I think it’s important for you to use the same courage you put towards reaching out to us into whatever you plan to do next. One thing I like to do when I’m in similar situations is ask myself “What advice would I give to my best friend if she were in this exact same situation?” Perhaps it could be something to try out!
Depending on the relationship you have with him too, it could be good to start small. Doing things like asking how they are and small gestures like buying them coffee or candy can help to pave the way in getting more comfortable around them, while also getting to know them. Telling someone how you feel can be really hard for most people to do right away, so there’s nothing wrong with building your confidence while you’re around them!
At the end of the day, doing what you think is best for yourself will always be the best way to go about these things. Just know that it’s totally normal to not know what to do when it comes to having crushes.
