Crushes

Reader Advice: 6 no-fail ways to chat up your crush


 
Let’s face it: Breaking the ice with your crush is no easy feat. But then there are those girls who are natural-born flirts. Guy gurus, if you will. That’s why we asked our readers to share their go-to convo starters to share their flirting knowledge with the rest of us. Read on to see what these #GLgirls swear gets their cuties chatting…
 

“Compliments! People are flattered when they receive a compliment." –Rita C., 15 

 

“I go up to him and just start a basic convo like, ‘Hey, sup.’ Then, after we've been chatting it up, I usually just notice what he's wearing, holding, etc., and start a convo based on that and flirt a bit. Works every time!” –Tina N., 12


“My best advice is to wait until he is alone or, even better, with a guy friend. Then say something like, ‘Guess what happened last night,’ followed by a story that will make him laugh. It has worked for me, and hopefully it will get a convo started!” – Devi B., 13


“I usually wait until something happens, and he says something, then I say something that relates. So I basically let life start the conversation for me.” –Dana N., 11

 

“My advice is to say 'Hi' and start a conversation. See what you guys have in common and talk about that. Don't try and just flirt right away, just talk to him like you would a normal person. Be yourself, don't make things up, so that he will like you. Make him like you for who you are, not who you aren't. They'll like you for that. Trust me—this works for me.” –Rachel S. 14

 

“I usually just catch up to my crush whenever we are walking the halls, and comment on the last class we had together. Sometimes I do the classic: text or call him, and ask what the homework was for Math or History. We usually just catch up instead of doing homework, because like he says, ‘I have homework to not do.’” –Ryann H., 12
