How to Spot Someone in Love with You

They tell you you’re brilliant.
They bother you.
They say, “Do you want some of my cookies?”

They are timid around you. They avoid eye contact.
They stare at you when you aren’t looking.
They pause when you talk to them.
They’re spying on you. They’re hiding from you.
You find out they hide a picture of you under their pillow.

They act like they are MACHO!
They pretend they have a six-pack but really they have a six-roll.
They MAKE SURE they say hi to you EVERY DAY.
They bring flowers that you are allergic to. They stand up for you in front of the teacher.
They carve your name in a tree. They throw rocks at your window.
They bring you cookies with hearts on them.

The suspect will blush when you talk to them. Maybe they will faint when they talk to you.
They pretend to faint so that you have to give them mouth-to-mouth resuscitation (CPR)
They pass you notes. They write your name on all of their binders in cursive.

Jumping up and wiggling around me, pleading to be scratched behind the ears.
People hugging, dogs licking, horses nuzzling. Skunks stick their tales up very straight and stiff.

They tease you about something they like about you.
They talk about so-and-so. They pretend to like somebody else.
If they think someone else likes you, they hate them.

They try to make you laugh.
They laugh at your dumb jokes.
Their girlfriends giggle around you.
They sing songs that don’t make sense: “I’m a bee spreading my wings, I’m a bee doing my things...”

They blush.
They stick up for you.
They write you a poem.

P.S. They really do stare at you!
