I finally got my crush's number! He doesn't know yet because I got it from a friend. But what do I say to him?
His Answer: “Just say hey!” says Kevin B., 16. “You should make sure you say your name so he knows who it is, but it doesn’t matter what you say. I really love it when a girl I like texts me about an inside joke we have together, so the dude you like would probably love it if you did that to him.”
Decoded: Bringing up a funny moment you two shared is an easy way to break the ice, but Kevin is also saying that you definitely shouldn’t over-think it. Your crush will be so flattered by the attention that he won’t think twice about where you got his number.
Your Move: Phone ready, babe? Text him something like, “Hi! This is name here. What’s up?” Introducing yourself lets you avoid an awkward, “Who’s this?” response from your crush. If you think that’s too forward, just use school as an excuse. Say something like, “Hey there! It’s name here. I’m totally lost on our math homework and your friend suggested I ask you. Hope you don’t mind he gave me your number ” The convo will flow from there.
