What do you do when you get the urge to text that cute guy or girl youre kind of into, but you have no legitimate reason to start a conversation? You could use a cheesy pick-up line like everyone else, but you dont want to come across as clichÃ©. And you already know a âheyâ or a âwyd?â probably wonât get you very far. If your goal is to come up with conversation-starting texts to send your crush thatâll grab their attention and get them so excited to chat, youâve come to the right place. Sometimes, all it really takes for the object of your affections to open up is a gentle nudge in the right direction.
Donât stress â orchestrating said nudge is easier than you think. Elite Daily spoke with Shannon Smith, a dating expert at Plenty of Fish, about what goes into a strong, conversation-starting text for your crush, and she had plenty to say. But as for what you shouldnât do? Try to avoid texting them too many times in a row. âCommunication is key in any relationship, whether digital, in person, or on the phone, but whining about not getting enough texts or starting to send multiple texts in a row with no response will backfire,â Julie Spira, online dating expert, previously told Elite Daily.
Consider sending your crush one text, and maybe a second after a few days. If they respond (especially to one of the ideas below), you might be on the brink of a convo that could not only be super fun, but that could also shed light on your compatibility. Hereâs what Smith recommends.
- I Only Have Eyes For You.
- You Are My Everything.
- I Only Know You For A Short While But I Already Know That I Love You.
- My Love For You Is Unconditional.
- I Love Hanging Out With You.
- Talking With You Makes My Day.
- Seeing Your Smile Lights Up My Whole World.
How To Start an INTERESTING Text Conversation with Your Crush
Cute Flirty Texts to Send Your Crush
How is it that texting your BFF is the easiest thing to do in the world— and just so happens to bring out your wittiest, most hilarious self —and yet, you can hardly spit out two coherent words to your crush? Wheres the justice in that? At the exact moment when you need to really impress someone, all you can do is stare at your phone screen for minutes on end before mustering up a measly “haha.” Dont worry, though, because youre not alone. Pretty much everyone has been at a loss when it comes to texting their crush. We all know it can be a little difficult to get the ball rolling, so here are some sassy conversation starters that are bound to get any cuties attention.
1. Ask A Leading Question
Opening the conversation with a question can be a good strategy, but asking something theyll definitely know the answer to is even better. “That will get the conversation flowing more freely,” says Smith. If youre both into the same sports team and youre not able to watch the big game, send a text asking about the score. Have a class together? Ask them a question about the homework. Who knows? Maybe you can even set up a future study date.
2. Jog Their Memory
“If you know a little background info about your crush and youve spoken before, bring up something you remember from your last conversation to show you were actively listening, like a band or movie you both like. Its a great way to pick up right where you left off,” says Smith. By reminding your crush of your last interaction, youre expressing your interest while also piquing theirs. For example, if you recently talked about your shared love of sci-fi films or indie music, you can send them a relevant movie or song suggestion.
