Crushes can make you wish you were a mind reader. You just NEED to know: do they like you as a friend — or more than a friend? You don’t want to ruin the friendship by making a move without knowing, but you can’t stand the nerve-wracking tension. Debating whether you should admit your feelings to your crush? It’s important to weigh things out. Are you prepared to lose this person as a friend if it doesn’t work out or are you not willing to let a possibly great thing pass you by? Those questions only make deciding what’s your next move harder, but don’t worry. This quiz might help you decipher what your crush’s true feelings are, so you can decide if you’re ready to make a move.
