1. Text an Inside Joke
The best ways to break the ice with your new crush is to poke fun at something the two of you talked about before or mildly tease them about something they said. Don’t forget to use LOL emojis so they know you’re joking.

2. Be Bold
Sometimes you gotta let the other person know you’re interested. If you want to get closer to your crush, then try a message like, “Come with me to Gabby’s party 2nite! I’ll bring the chips, u bring your cute adorkable self!” No games, no guessing.
3. Send a Silly Snap
If you really want to get creative with your crush, consider sending them sweet – or silly — Snaps throughout the day. Snap a pic of fresh flowers and caption it with: “These are for you!” Or maybe snap a silly selfie to make them smile. Chances are they’ll return the favor!
4. Compliment Them
A simple compliment goes a long way in getting – and keeping — someone’s attention. After your first official hang session, send something like, “Had a great time last night! We should definitely hang out again soon!” Add smiley faces for bonus sweetness.
5. Leave Them Guessing
A little mystery adds just the right amount of intrigue and drama that will leave your crush craving more time, and texts, from you. Pique their interest with a flirty, “Had a dream about you last night!” Don’t tell them the dream; instead describe it with emojis. They’ll be thinking about it – and you – all day.
