Why do I keep bumping into my crush? 8 possible reasons and what to do about it


Dear Reader,

Have you ever found yourself constantly bumping into your crush? It seems like no matter where you go, they always magically appear out of nowhere.

It can be a mix of emotions, from exciting to nerve-wracking, to frustrating, especially if you can’t seem to figure out why it keeps happening. In this article, we’ll explore the possible reasons why you keep bumping into your crush and what you can do about it.

Possible Reasons Why You Keep Bumping into Your Crush

1. Coincidence

Let’s start with the most obvious reason: it could simply be coincidence. Sometimes, the universe just works in mysterious ways.

You could both be in the same place at the same time, whether it’s at work, school, or a local coffee shop. It could feel like luck, destiny, or even fate bringing you two together.

Perhaps you have mutual friends who hang out in the same places and, inevitably, you bump into each other. Also, if you two come from the same neighborhood, you may find yourselves taking the same bus or train to work or school.

2. They Like You Too

Another possible reason why you keep bumping into your crush is that they like you too. Attraction can be a powerful force, and it’s possible that they are drawn to you just as much as you are to them.

They might be sending subtle signals through their body language, trying to get your attention. Their behaviors could include touching your arm during conversation, positioning their body towards you, or smiling at you more frequently.

They might also have done their background check on social media and found out your common interests and hobbies. Sometimes, they could be practical and would want to date someone they often see, so when they see you, it’s like they get to check off one of their boxes.

3. They Want You to Take the First Step

It’s also possible that your crush is too shy or introverted to make the first move. In that case, their intention might be to accidentally bump into you as a way to stimulate conversation or friendship.

So, if you want to see anything happen, then the ball is in your court, and you should make the first move by asking them out or inviting them to a more intimate setting.

4. You Are Always on Their Mind

The reason why you keep seeing your crush could be because they constantly think about you. If they are infatuated with you, they might keep thinking about the striking qualities that captured their attention in the first place.

When they see you, they take notice of every little detail, such as your outfit, hair, or makeup. They are also hyper-aware of your behavior, trying to gauge your interest level in them.

5. You Share Their Interests

You and your crush may share common interests that keep bringing you two together. It could be anything from a favorite hobby, TV show, or sports team.

You could bump into each other while browsing the same section at the bookstore or while waiting for a concert to start. Sometimes, when you share interests with someone, it creates a comfortable bond that fosters conversation and laughter, which leads to a possibly stronger connection.

6. You Ghosted Them

On the other hand, it could also be that your crush has an explanation for why they keep bumping into you, and the reason has nothing to do with their desire to be near you. Instead, they may be trying to process their emotions because you ghosted them before, and they have mixed feelings about it.

They can be torn between hurt and confusion, wondering what they did wrong, and if it had something to do with them. They may want to see if there’s a possibility of salvaging the relationship you once had or get a closure for the both of you.

7. They Are Interested in You but They Are Seeing Someone Else

Similarly, your crush might not be single and might be seeing someone else, but they’re still interested in you. They could be feeling bored or unfulfilled in their current relationship and looking for something new.

Or, maybe they have a pattern of jumping from one relationship to another and can’t help being drawn to you, almost like a reflex. Whatever the case may be, it would be detrimental to start something with them while they are already in a relationship, which could lead to a hurtful and complicated love triangle.

8. You Share Mutual Friends

Social circles play a huge role in bringing people together. Sometimes, you keep bumping into your crush because of shared mutual friends.

You may be part of the same crowd, or you may have common friends who have introduced you to each other. When you share friends, you have a common pool of people to talk about, which could lead to more engaging conversations due to shared interests and behavior compatibility.

9. You Are Their Junior and They Like to Dominate People

Age differences can be an interesting factor too, and when you’re a younger crowd, you could find yourself crushing on someone older who likes to dominate. They could be only interested in you for the age gap, which could create some interesting and complicated dynamics in the relationship.

However, it could be fun to explore the possibilities, as long as there is mutual respect and empowerment in the relationship and not solely based on the romantic domination. Now that we have explored various reasons why you keep bumping into your crush let’s explore what you can do about it.

What to Do When You Keep Bumping into Your Crush

1. Ask Them Out

Assuming you have the courage, the best thing to do is ask your crush out. Be honest with them and express your desire to get to know them better.

Taking the initiative could lead to fantastic possibilities and, depending on how you communicate, the timing could be perfect.

2. State Your Feelings

If you’re not ready to ask them out yet but want to express your feelings, consider writing them a letter. Set your creativity in motion and pour your heart out to them.

You could express your unconditional love, admiration, and even leave clues to entice them to take the next step.

3. Share Your Food

Food is a great bonding tool, and you can use it to share your interests with your crush. Invite them to lunch or bring in some baked goods you made yourself.

It could spark engaging conversations, allowing you to get to know each other better.

4. Invite Them to Your Book Club

If there’s a book club or reading habit in your life, invite them to join. Reading is an excellent way to bond with someone, and it could lead to some interesting discussions about your favorite authors, genres, and characters.

Who knows, maybe you’ll find that they are your soulmate under all the literary romance.

5. Exchange Numbers

In today’s digital age, phone numbers are sometimes a means to keep in touch. After a few in-person interactions, if you feel comfortable with the other person, feel free to suggest exchanging numbers as a more subtle way of staying in touch.

6. Make Meaningful Conversations

When you find yourself face to face with your crush, try to keep the conversation meaningful. Ask some questions that reflect your interest in them, not just the generic kind you would ask anybody.

Try to balance your talking and listening, as it’s essential that both of you are making an effort to get to know each other.

7. Invite Them to a House Party

While bonding over something more intimate like a lunch or coffee date is an excellent way to get to know each other, inviting them to a house party is an excellent way to see how they interact with other people. Seeing your crush in a social setting could open your eyes and make you both feel more comfortable.

8. Ask Them If It Is a Coincidence

If you feel like you’re seeing each other too frequently, and it’s no longer a coincidence, it’s good to ask them if they noticed it, too. A casual question like “I feel like we keep bumping into each other. Have you noticed?” can spark an open-ended discussion that leads to honesty and confirms whether there’s genuine interest from both sides.

9. Let Them Make the Move

As scary as it sounds, patience could be a virtue in this case. Sometimes, it’s best to let the other person make the first move and wait for them to ask you out or initiate the next phase of the relationship.

If nothing happens, you might need to accept it and move on. The last thing to do is to overextend yourself to someone, only to end up getting hurt.

10. Flirt with Their Friends

If your crush is genuinely unresponsive, you might want to consider flirting with one of their friends, just to test the waters and see what is possible. However, you need to be careful and not hurt anyone if you choose to do this, as it can be a sensitive topic.

In Conclusion

Finding your crush could sometimes feel like a rollercoaster ride, filled with excitement and uncertainty. Our relationship with them may be mysterious and challenging to navigate, but ultimately, it’s an excellent adventure waiting to happen.

Whether it’s coincidence, mutual interest, domination, or anything in between, keep your communication open and authentic. Who knows, you might just end up living happily ever after.
