We’ve all been there. From obsessing over a long-time crush to being smitten by that one interesting person you met during an otherwise dull party.
But how do you know if the other person is equally, if not more interested in you? Enter, WhatsApp.
While an accidental Facebook Like or Instagram Double Tap are some tell-all ways of knowing whether a person is stalking you, you might also want to pay attention to certain signs that are indicative of whether a person is silently stalking you on WhatsApp. Yes, you can tell.
1. The second you upload a fresh profile picture, your crush texts you
It’s pretty obvious, isn’t it? He/she texts you as soon as you change your profile picture and notices that little detail you didn’t even know existed. And god forbid your profile picture is a quote from your favourite poem or prose; you’re in for a full-fledged, philosophical discussion about life and all it entails.
2. Notices your status message and asks about its relevance
Whether it’s the lyrics of a song, an existential life question or a simple status message that says ‘Busy’, he/she will ask you about its backstory almost immediately and check if you’re doing OK.
3. There’s a typing sign, without any message
You, more often than not, notice a ‘typing’ sign against the chat of this particular crush while mindlessly scrolling through your recent conversations. The typing sign is almost never followed by a message. Whether it lost its way or was never sent, is for you to decide.
4. Ticks turn blue as soon as you text him/her
It’s as if they literally sprang up on receiving your text. When the ticks turn blue within a micro second and the reply is received within a heartbeat, you my friend, have found yourself a WhatsApp admirer.
5. You get a lot of missed calls on WhatsApp
Not a lot of people genuinely use WhatsApp for calling, do they? Unless of course their normal cellular connection is anything but nice or they’re calling outside the country. You end up receiving tonnes of WhatsApp missed calls which are then followed by an apology message, of course.
