How to Talk to Your Crush with Confidence

Having a crush can be a beautiful feeling. From the butterflies in your stomach to the thrill of seeing their smile, having a crush can be both exciting and overwhelming. Some people may feel more awkward than excited, and despite trying their best to talk to their crush, they get tongue-tied. If you happen to be a little shy, here are tips on how to talk to your crush:

  1. Learn about their interests.

One of the first steps to knowing more about your crush is to learn about their interests. People with interesting hobbies and passions are likely to talk about their likes which can be a great icebreaker. Ask them about their favorite hobbies and what they like to do for fun.

  1. Ask interesting questions to get to know them.

Besides hobbies and interests, it also helps to prepare a few other questions. Some examples include asking their opinion on something, sharing a few stories, and giving them a few compliments.

  1. Keep the conversation light and comfortable.

Being too serious during your conversations can be off-putting to some people. As tempting as it might be to drop romantic hints, you must learn to take your time to get to know them first. Avoid forcing them to share things they are not comfortable with now. These things take time, so once they start trusting you a little more, you can figure out your next move later.

  1. Be an active listener.

Part of a healthy communication line is learning how to listen. When they answer your questions or give their opinions, listen carefully, and build up the conversation from there.

Avoid looking at your phone or surroundings, even if you’re nervous. These actions leave the impression that you’re bored and uninterested.

  1. Add some humor to your conversations.

Laughter heals all awkwardness and helps keep the conversation light and enjoyable. Make a few jokes but avoid joking over controversial topics like religion or politics. You can also share a few memes with them if they’re into those things.

  1. Make use of social media.

Speaking of memes, another way to connect with your crush is to add them on social media. Messaging through social media is great because it lessens the pressure of conversations. It also is a great chance to get to know your crush in a more private space.

However, once you connect with them as friends, try to leave them with a manageable number of messages. You never want to come across as needy!

Some additional tips on how to talk to your crush:

  • If you have mutual friends, try establishing a few hangouts in the future with your shared buddies.
  • Avoid asking too personal questions early on. Please do not ask about their opinions on religion, politics, and anything controversial. You can work up to these topics once you get to know them better.
  • Try to keep a calm and positive vibe. Most people are less likely to enjoy the company of sarcastic and mean individuals. You don’t have to force positivity, but try to be genuine with your positive attributes.

If they don’t feel the same way, don’t force yourself. Accept the rejection gracefully and be civil. Think of it this way, people who never try to shoot their shot rarely get a chance to score.

The best thing about having crushes is that it offers a challenge in your social environment. Whether it works out or not, learning to overcome nervousness and anxiety is a definite win. Never be afraid to be your most authentic self, even if it’s with a person you have a crush on. Once you learn how to converse with people, you’ll find it easier to meet more people in the future.
