We all know texting into the wee hours of the morning can get pretty open — take a chance and ask your crush to spill.It gives them a way to play the shy card and give in to telling you how badly they want you without feeling too forward (hey, you asked).Adding an eye roll emoji to this text playfully serves as a "don't get a big head" reminder to balance out your compliment so it doesn't read as empty sweet talk."You've kept me smiling all day."Why it works: With just the right amount of sweet, you're telling your love-to-be that the thought of them makes you a little giddy.Think of this as a slightly subtler version of, "I can't stop thinking about you." But just what about them makes you smile?Let them know you're not taking "I don't know, what do you want to do?" as an answer."I mean, how can you resist this face?"Why it works: Almost no one can resist the cuteness of an adorable pet Snap (which would obviously accompany this text).Let your crush know they're on your mind without the sappiness of a traditional, "I miss you." Send this when you subtly want to let them know they should come over — first to see your pet, but most importantly to hang with you."So where are you taking me tonight?
It's vague enough to keep you both safely in your comfort zones, but it's also relatively platonic (though that's open to interpretation)."Wanna skip class/work and hang out with me instead?
What was once a casual chat about making plans to go thrifting, for example, becomes a cutesy request for your crush's time, and a face they can't refuse.
Giving them something nice to look at certainly won't hurt your chances of landing a date."Some friends and I are grabbing drinks later!
You might be getting clean, but the conversation doesn't have to be. "Why it works: Find a shared interest to strike up an instant connection with your crush.
Whether it's a sporting event, a new episode of a TV show you love, or an album that just dropped from your favorite artist, spark a natural conversation by connecting over what you have in common. Suggest you check out your shared interest together next time."My dog/cat misses you!
