Have feelings for a guy and you’re not sure whether or not to tell him? Here are fifteen reasons why you absolutely should tell him how you feel!
1. He Probably Can’t Tell
Frankly, guys don’t always see things even when they’re right in front of them. Whether he’s a friend or someone you’ve only seen from afar, chances are he can’t tell you like him unless you tell him straight up how you feel. Don’t walk away from the possibility of a relationship by not telling the guy you like that you’re into him. There’s no way for him to make a move if he doesn’t know that you like him, so you’ve got to tell him!
2. It’ll Make Him Like You More
A guy will totally like you more if you tell him how you feel. Guys are more likely to walk away if they don’t know you feel the same about them as they do about you.
By telling him you like him, you’re confirming your feelings for him, and that will make him like you even more than he already did. Guys like girls who take the initiative, so it’ll be a total turn on for him if you tell him you like him.
He’ll like you so much more knowing you’re not afraid to admit your feelings for him. It shows that you’re the kind of girl who knows what she wants and goes for it!
3. So You Can Date
Whether he’s a friend or a guy you don’t know too well, there’s no way you’re going to start dating if you don’t both tell each other how you feel. If you want to turn the friendship into something more, you have to tell him how you feel.
He probably doesn’t already know, so you won’t be able to date him without breaking the ice and letting him know you have feelings for him. You should take the initiative and tell him – in person – so he knows that you’re interested and he can properly ask you out!
4. It’s Better Than Waiting For Him To Make The Move
Guys aren’t good at telling you how they feel. Even worse, sometimes a guy will take forever to make a move and finally ask you out. He’ll drag his feet and put it off for a long time before he finally makes his move and tells you how he feels.
The way to counter this is by telling him before he has the chance to tell you. If you wait for him to make a move, you’ll be waiting a really long time. Tell him how you feel, and you’ll end the waiting game for both of you. Once he knows how you feel, he’ll be able to make his move, and neither of you will have to wait a million years to be together!
5. Games Are Lame
If you play games with a guy, he’ll definitely walk away, and you’ll stay his friend rather than moving up to being his girlfriend.
Games are lame, and no one likes playing games when it comes to relationships. You wouldn’t want him to mess with your feelings, so you shouldn’t do it to him.
Instead of beating around the bush and playing games, be direct. Otherwise, he won’t be able to tell if you have feelings for him or if you’re just trying to mess with his head.
Taking the initiative and telling him how you feel will show him you’re going to play games with him, and that you care enough about him to tell him you like him.
6. He Should Know
Your guy should know how you feel. He deserves to know that you like him, and keeping it from him isn’t fair for either of you. You should tell him because he should know you have feelings for him. You would want him to tell you if he had feelings for you, so you should tell him. You can walk away feeling good because he deserved to know you have feelings for him and you’ll feel better for telling him.
7. It’ll Help You Move On
Just because you like him doesn’t mean he likes you back, unfortunately. You may tell him how you feel and find out that he doesn’t feel the same. That’s okay!
Not knowing whether or not you stand a chance at a relationship with him would drive you crazy. It’s better that you know that he’s not interested in being more than your friend because it can help you move on. You would’ve been hung up on him if you didn’t tell him how you felt. Once you tell him, you’ll be able to move on.
8. Why Not Tell Him?
There’s really no reason not to tell the guy you like that you have feelings for him. The worst that can happen is that he’ll say no, and then you can get on with your life.
Keeping your feelings to yourself won’t help anyone, so you should just go on and let him know you’re interested in him as more than a friend. Don’t be afraid of rejection or what might happen if he feels the same way about you. Just tell him how you feel!
9. You’ll Feel Better
Keeping a secret like this can take a toll on you and your relationships, especially if you’re hiding your feelings from someone who is a friend. By telling the guy you like him, you’ll be getting that huge secret off your chest which will make you feel so much better.
You can’t hide your feelings forever. You’ll have to be extra careful to make sure that you never let it slip that you feel more than friendship for him. Letting him know that you like him prevents all the pain and heartache you go through every time you pretend you don’t like him. Tell him, and you’ll feel so much better!
10. It’ll Explain Things To Him
If you’re hiding your feelings from him, you’re probably acting kind of weird around him. You may laugh at things that aren’t funny or hang around him when no one else is. Your behavior will probably be concerning to him, and he’ll wonder what’s wrong with you.
Telling him how you feel will clear up your behavior and explain why you’ve been acting so strange. It’ll also explain other things, like the fact that you don’t seem to be interested in other guys or that you get jealous when he’s with other girls. Tell him that you have feelings for him; it’ll explain things to him, so he understands!
11. You Might Miss Your Chance
There are a million things that could happen that would prevent you from ever telling your crush you like him. He could move away or start dating someone new. You could move away. Something terrible could happen to one of you, and you’d never get the chance to share your feelings with him.
If you don’t want to risk missing your chance, you have to tell him how you feel. The only way to prevent losing out on the opportunity to be with your crush is to tell him you like him.
12. It Could Make You Both Happy
You probably want to be happy, and you definitely want the guy you like to be happy, too. You may be able to make both those things happen if you walk right up to him and tell him how you feel.
He may have the same feelings for you, and you won’t know it if you don’t tell that you like him. Once you do, you’ll both be extra happy because you get to start a relationship that you’ve both been secretly wanting. Telling him how you feel is a great way to make sure you’re both happy!
13. You’ve Been Waiting Forever To Tell Him
Just like with a guy who drags his feet and doesn’t get around to telling you how he feels, you’ve probably been waiting a long time to tell him that you’re interested. Whether it’s out of fear or because there hasn’t been the opportunity, it’s been too long.
Tell him how you feel and stop waiting around to do it! You shouldn’t wait forever because of all the reasons on this list. All you have to do is tell him how you feel and the long wait will be over!
14. You’ll Gain A Ton Of Respect
Respect can go a long way. You’ll respect yourself for taking the initiative and telling your guy how you feel about him. Nothing feels better than being the one to take a huge step and tell the guy you like him.
You’ll also gain respect from your friends. They’ll see you as the strong girl who stood up and admitted her feelings. You’ll probably encourage them to share their feelings with their friends, too.
The guy and his friends will respect you even more, too. He’ll respect that you went for what you wanted and his friends will see that you’re serious about their guy and that they can trust you not to hurt him. Telling him how you feel will gain you respect from all around!
15. You Just Can’t Keep It In Any Longer
Keeping it a secret is probably driving you crazy. Every time you see him, you’re desperate to tell him that you have feelings for him just to see if he feels the same way about you.
One day, you’ll see him, and you just won’t be able to keep it in any longer. That’s a great reason to spill the beans.
You don’t have to keep it a secret, and you’ll feel so much relief by sharing your feelings with him and everyone around you. Once you realize that the secret feelings you have for him are too much to keep inside, tell him how you feel!
Tell Him How You Feel!
Being the one to tell a guy how you feel can be really hard, but it’ll be totally worth it once you do. These are just fifteen of the many reasons that you should tell him how you feel. Take the initiative and let him know that you’re into him! You won’t regret it.
