Is Your Crush Guilty of Doing Any of These Things?

He probably likes you back!

How exactly does one move past having an unrequited crush to getting mutual admiration? Probably if your crush does any of the things below, according to some of Buzzfeed Violet's staffers, which we tweaked and also added a few of our own.

When he "happens" to be where you are that day.

You know how girls purposely try to run into their crushes just so they could get a smile, nod, or simply a glimpse of them? Some guys do this, too! The first three times it happens, you can probably chalk it up to a happy coincidence, but the next five or six "chance encounters" seals the deal.

When he sends you individual snaps.

Girl, getting an exclusive snap from him is a dead giveaway! Never mind that it's about a mysterious new mole or some random dude whose hair he thinks is cool. The point is, it’s just you he's sharing that random snap with.


More so, when he puts you in his Snapchat's Top 8!

How obvious can he get, right? Out of all the 126 people he's following—and we're positive more than eight of those are either sports stars or hot models—he made you the eighth most interesting person to follow.

When he’s so confident around other people but becomes quiet as a mouse when around you.

Or in the case of shy guys, when they suddenly become chatty or talk animatedly with friends when you're around. #falsebravado 

When he sees you but can't bring himself to go near you, so he just steals glances at you from afar.

It's hard to assume, but if you catch him doing this quite a lot, then there must be something there.

When he watches your Instagram stories.

Plot twist: You don’t even follow each other on Instagram!

When he always has something to say. No. Matter. What.


Like when you see each other in school, but unfortunately can't stop for a conversation, and still he finds a way to say something like, "Hey, I like how your shoelaces are tied today." What even?

Still trapped in the one-way crush zone? Watch the video below for more signs!

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
