I've been wondering, friends of mine, can you tell when someone is crushing on you? What gives them away? the constant staring? Odd PMs/emails (yes, I've been guilty of that one)? How do you handle it if you do catch a crusher? Tell me your seekrits! (PM me if you're too wimpy to reply in public.)

Hitting me over the head and carrying me off to their cave? Kidding... mostly, anyway.

Seriously, in this area, I'm pretty Gryffindor: Subtlety completely escapes my notice, so it has to be really obvious or I miss it. Or if by some miracle I *do* notice it, I interpret it as not being that.

Yeah, yeah, I know. I have issues. ;)

Why do you decide it can't be crushing?

Surprisingly enough, especially for someone with my Ravenclaw tendencies, I tend to be totally oblivious. But then, I'm not usually particularly easy to get to know, and because of my weight I'm not generally considered to be physically attractive, so I haven't had many chances to observe what happens if someone develops a crush on me.

Of course, it probably doesn't help that when I develop a crush on someone, I treat them precisely as I would if I didn't have a crush on them (I do all my squeeing, grumbling, fluttering, etc. when I'm well away from him or her), so I have absolutely no idea what to watch out for.

I usually do the same when I'm crushing. I wonder if that's typical behaviour of a subset of women crushers?

That's entirely possible. I know that personally, I've often had a fairly compelling reason to keep those particular feelings to myself. It's almost disturbing how frequently that reason has been "I know that this is unilateral and I don't want our friendship to get weird."
