    It's meant to be the other way round but when I know a guy likes me and I'm also interested, I feel comfortable and at ease around them but when it's a guy that may like me and it's not reciprocated back on my part, I feel anxious and I start blushing, basically giving the wrong signals.*

    I think that makes sense actually. I always feel awkward when I know someone's interested in me and I'm not interested in them. For me, it's because I'm anxious they'll make a move and I won't know how to react, or I'm constantly worrying about giving off the wrong impression when I'm just being nice to them.
    When you both like each other it's easier, as there's likely to be chemistry between you, and you can flirt with them without being worried about giving them the wrong idea.

    You're relatively together/mature? This is not all that unusual (particularly if the unrequited crush is all awkward about it themselves)
