Signs Your Crush Is Jealous But Hiding It
1. They get nervous and upset when you’re with another person
Your crush may decide to pretend that he or she is not jealous by telling you they’re fine, especially when they see you with another person. But if you notice they’re always nervous whenever they see you with the opposite sex, it is a great sign they are hiding their jealousy. People who hide their jealousy often express it through anger. They get upset even when you have done nothing wrong. But you can tell the reason for their anger if you can remember what happened when they saw you talking with the opposite.

2. They ask too many questions
Do you often find yourself trying to explain yourself over and over but it seems they’re not getting you? It does not mean your crush is dumb. When your crush becomes too curious about you and your activities, they’re signs he or she is jealous but trying to not reveal it.

3. They often doubt you
