what do you mean when someone saying "i have a crush on you"? it's means as simple as "i like you", or it means i liked you before but never had a relationship with you? or what else?

thanks!

A "crush" is a brief but intense feeling of love (infatuation) for someone, usually that you haven't had a relationship with.

Not something you usually tell the person you have a crush on about. Emotion: wink

Hi,

what do you mean when someone saying "i have a crush on you"? it's means as simple as "i like you", or it means i liked you before but never had a relationship with you? or what else?

It means that I feel a very strong and romantic emotion, similar to love, about you, but it probably only is temporary. Teenagers often get crushes, very often on someone they have only seen but never spoken to. Sometimes they get a crush on a movie star or a pop star. Adults don't tend to get crushes, it's a disease of young people.

Best wishes, Clive

thanks for your help!!!

so it's better to say "i like you" instead of "i have a crush on u" when they are already friends or have already known each other?
Hi,

Can you tell me if you are talking about just friendship, or are you talking about romance between a young man and a young woman?

Clive

it's about romance between a young man and a young woman:)
If it's romance, you can also say

I'm falling for you.

I'm going crazy over you.

It's hard to advise you about this. A lot depends not just on the words, but on the way you say them and on your personality, as well as your age. Here are a few comments.

I like you This is not a very strong statement, it's kind of casual and friendly.

i have a crush on u Usually, people say this to their friends about another person, but they don't say this to the actual person they have a crush on.

I love you You could also say this. However, it's a pretty strong statement,and sometimes pretty serious, like 'I love you, I want to marry you'. So, I wouldn't say this unless you want to get fairly serious.

Good luck! Clive
