I have been there, believe me. In fact, we all have been there. It is normal to feel attracted to your friends especially when you are so close to them. Likewise, knowing them for a longer period of time also increases their attraction.
They begin to occupy your thoughts and you find yourself imagining a life with them. Sometimes, the feelings can get so obsessive but, the object of our interest may or may not be interested in us.
Here is what to do:
- Attempt to get occupied
- Accept the truth
- Make an effort to mute them
- Get to know them
- Tell them about your feelings
1. Attempt to get occupied
The first step to take to stop yourself from catching feelings is to prioritize self-care. This includes engaging in activities that bring joy to you such as spending time on your hobby, seeing friends, travelling, cooking a healthy and satisfying meal, meditating, exercising, etc.
If you have nothing to do at the moment, you can work to occupy your mind. When you do, you would certainly forget about them.
2. Accept the truth
Sometimes, it is hard to move on. But, accepting the truth is one of the ways to stop yourself from catching feelings.
My dear, if they have told you that they have no feelings for you, then you should accept that and move on. Moreover, there are plenty fishes in the ocean.
3. Make an effort to mute them.
Muting them is another way to stop yourself from catching feelings. It might be difficult but, it is worth trying.
If you have their phone number or you follow them on social media, nothing intensifies these feelings more than constantly being updated by them. It is even worse when you spend more of your time on their Instagram page constantly getting update about them. Mute them and move on.
4. Get to know them
You can talk to them and get to know if there is anything worth admiring. Getting to know them will let you know if your feelings for them is real or not. They might put you off with their comments and behaviour. If you notice their negative attitudes, I suggest you move on.

5. Tell them about your feelings
You have to be bold and tell them how you feel. They might like you too or they might reject you. This can be solemn and embarrassing. But, you have to know that telling them how you feel about them stops you from catching feelings.
I hope these tips can actually help you to stop catching feelings and get over your crush.
