7 songs that'll inspire you to ask out your crush
Let’s face it: Being brave isn't easy. Although you might know exactly what you want, there might also be a thousand little voices in your head trying to talk you out of going for it. Your workout playlist helps you power through long runs, so why not apply this same idea to romance? Listen to these seven songs for the perfect lyrical pep talk before telling your crush how you really feel.
1. “You Belong With Me” by Taylor Swift
Even if there isn’t another cutie on your crush’s radar (we hope that’s the case!), Taylor’s girl-next-door-turned-GF character is an *awesome* example of what you could gain from taking the ultimate leap of relationship faith while staying true to yourself.
2. “Closer” by Tegan and Sara
Your crush isn’t typical—hence why you’re head-over-heels for them. Turn to this tune to remind yourself that they’ll appreciate you for not wanting to treat them like everyone else.
3. "Woman Like Me" by Little Mix and Nicki Minaj
If you want to ask your crush out, you have to be *so* confident first! This jam is perf for making you feel great about yourself and ready to take on the world.
4. "Fallin' All in You" by Shawn Mendes
It's tough to tell your crush how you feel, but this sweet Shawn tune will get you ready to be a total romantic as soon as you see them.
5. “Wanted” by Hunter Hayes
If listening to Hunter doesn’t make you want to wrap your arms around your future sweetie, we don’t know what will. This track will take your flirty feels from fantasy to reality in under four minutes.
6. “Unconditionally” by Katy Perry
Katy’s not just belting out these lyrics because they sound good. Let go of whatever’s holding you back and let your crush know that you can—and will—care about them unconditionally.
7. “Mirrors” by Justin Timberlake
Your crush is like your other half. With a little bit of Justin and a whole lot of confidence, your crush could actually be your other half. You’ve got this, girl!
