20 Crush Songs About Meeting Someone New and Liking Them

So, someone new has caught your attention, and now you are wondering if this is just a fling or if it can turn into something serious.

Your heart is filled with butterflies, and you can’t stop daydreaming about them.

You’re so into your new crush, you are already thinking about your next move. Should you play hard to get, or should you be open about your feelings?

If you need a little help expressing just how you feel, here’s a playlist of the best songs about meeting someone new!

‘Crush’ by Jennifer Paige

You know that feeling when you meet someone that makes your heart skip a beat, but you also know you are not having a ‘date with destiny’?

The massive 1998 summer hit is a song about meeting someone new and liking them but also going with the flow and not rushing things. After all, it’s just a crush song.

‘Secret Love Song’ by Little Mix (featuring Jason Derulo)

Have you ever been in a situation where you were not just friends but not lovers either? ‘Why can’t you hold me in the street? Why can’t I kiss you on the dancefloor?’ — two lines that speak of burning passion that’s not quite ready to go public yet.

‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri

Sometimes it just clicks. In a split second, you know you have found the one because it feels like you’ve known them for ’a thousand years.’

Now that all the wait is done and over, it’s time for you to let your guard down and actually enjoy having a crush! Let destiny do its thing!

‘Love at First Sight’ by Kylie Minogue

We all have those moments when we feel tired of chasing after destiny, and we are ready to give up, but then magic happens. You are at the club having fun, not paying attention, and — bam — you see him/her on the dance floor, and it’s ‘love at first sight.’

It is one of the best songs about meeting someone for the first time and immediately realizing that they are something special.

‘Call Your Girlfriend’ by Robin

Fast forward to 2010, Swedish dance-pop smash hit is the song you want to send to your new crush who is not quite available yet to start something new. If you like what you see, why not go for it?

‘Treat You Better’ by Shawn Mendes

Performed by currently one of the biggest names in pop music, this 2016 megahit speaks about the infamous Friend Zone!

Yep, we have all been there, and we all know it’s the worst place to be when you are crushing on someone hard, especially if your crush is already involved with another person.

The moral of the story – don’t give up so easily; there is always a chance for the tables to turn.

‘Falling for You’ by Colbie Caillat

Colbie Caillat’s hit from 2009 turned into a summer love anthem. The sweet melody and her silky voice make it one of the best songs about falling for someone you just met. Some people are not always the obvious choice, but they eventually turn out to be precisely what we need.

‘You’re Beautiful’ by James Blunt

“I saw your face in a crowded place/And I don’t know what to do/‘Cause I’ll never be with you!”

It sounds like those love stories from the movies when two people commute to work/school every day together but are too shy to say a word to each other.

Is your fear of rejection standing in your way to happiness? Don’t allow your own inhibitions and insecurities to be the reason you missed out on a great opportunity to even try and get to know this person!

‘When I Saw You’ by Mariah Carey

Have you ever locked eyes with someone and felt like the moment you shared was ‘transcending space and time’?

The powerhouse diva, Mariah Carey, found the perfect words to describe the moment when you realize you have found ‘The One.’ It’s that kind of love that changes you forever and makes you want to spend eternity with your loved one.

‘Close’ by Nick Jonas ft. Tove Lo

One look is all it takes to feel those electrifying chills down your spine. That instant magic that happens at first sight, and you just know you need to get ‘close.’

There is no back and forth anymore, you are sure you want this person, and you are not afraid to go after them! That’s courage, babe!

‘To The Moon And Back’ by Savage Garden

This little masterpiece cemented Savage Garden’s place in music history. ‘I would fly you to the moon and back / If you’ll be if you’ll be my baby’ — this is a song about a guy who has a crush on a girl who has been through a lot in life. He is offering his love because no other force can heal wounds quite like true love!

‘You Don’t Know My Name’ by Alicia Keys

Remember that time when you kept bumping into this cute guy at your local coffee shop? Your heart was racing, your palms were sweating, and all you wanted to say was “Hi,” but you couldn’t find your courage?

Well, this sweet and soulful song about crushing on someone will remind you of the sparkle in their eyes after you finally approached them.

If you like Alicia Keys, then you probably know “Distance and Time,” a great love song about a long-distance relationship.

‘Leave Your Lover for Me’ by Sam Smith

This one is for everyone who is secretly in love with a friend but is too afraid to confess their feelings because doing so may end the friendship.

It’s the worst feeling when you see your crush with someone who doesn’t deserve them! Don’t you just wish you could run away with them and be happy?

‘Love Story’ by Taylor Swift

Talking about teenage dreams and summer love, I have the best tune for you. ‘Love Story’ put Taylor Swift on the music map, and millions of teenagers identified with the new pop/country Princess.

She sings about those first love pains — first time holding hands, first kiss, first night together but also first fights and first tears.

‘Butterflies’ by Kacey Musgraves

The title says it all. It’s one of those songs about meeting someone for the first time and falling for them unexpectedly.

Kacey sings, ‘Now I remember what it feels like to fly, you give me butterflies,’ crooning about the warm and fuzzy feeling we get when we finally meet someone we have been waiting for a long time.

‘Teenage Dream’ by Katy Perry

Remember your first date, first dance, first kiss? All that teenage love excitement that made you feel like the king of the world? Well, Miss Perry found the perfect lyrics and catch melody to set the scene!

Maybe you are not a teenager anymore, but isn’t it amazing to find someone who gives you butterflies and makes you feel like a schoolgirl once again?

‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen

 This is probably the catchiest tune ever. ‘Call Me Maybe’ is the perfect song about meeting new people. It talks about running into a stranger that you immediately want to go out on a date with.

‘Into You’ by Ariana Grande

“I’m so into you / I can barely breathe / And all I wanna do / Is to fall in deep.”

There are fireworks all over the place, but no one is making a move. You obviously like each other a ton, and the tension is rising, but who will be the one to give in first.

Well, is it worth playing hard to get when you obviously can’t even breathe properly around this person? Just saying!

‘I knew I loved You’ by Savage Garden

Have you ever dreamt of that one perfect person who is the missing piece of your puzzle, but you haven’t met her/him yet?

Well, Savage Garden sings about this incredible feeling of falling in love with someone you are yet to meet.

This love anthem is probably the best crush song about meeting someone special, even if it’s just in your dreams.

‘You Belong With Me’ by Taylor Swift

How is it possible that your crush or love doesn’t even notice your existence on the face of the earth? You’ve been there all along, and somehow they still can’t take a hint, huh?

Maybe they are just not that into you, or maybe they are afraid to lose you as a friend. Maybe it’s time to put the big boy pants on and take a leap of faith! Who knows, maybe they have been waiting on your sign.
