Texting Your Crush 101

Ok, so, here’s the sitch : you’ve finally gotten past the “hi, hello” stage with your crush. You’re now on semi-regularly ~talking~ (lol, texting) terms. YAY, YOU!

Find Your Hook

Plain & simple : look for that one thing you have in common and LATCH on it. If you and your crush both have dogs – you can casually ask how theirs is doing. If you watch the same series or have read the same book – you can talk about that too. 

Memes and GIFs Are Your Friends
