Okay, so you really want to text your crush and start a conversation with him. One snag: you have no idea what to say!
You could play it cool and simple and just text “Hey”, but you know deep down that this is boring and it might not even illicit a response.
You could go for something really engaging that will prick his interest instead, but the problem with this is it’s so easy to spend the next hour or so trying to come up with something to say that is interesting, but not too weird or left field, and which will prick his interest without making him think you’re madly in love with him.
But not to worry, because we’ve got 10 creative conversation starters to text your crush!
“I heard that you wanted to watch the new Iron Man movie?”
If you happened to see that your crush was super interested in a certain movie (perhaps he posted it to his Facebook wall), you could start a conversation by basically saying that you’d love to go and see this movie too.
This is such a simple way of setting up a date, and nine times out of ten it works. It shows that you’ve taken an interest in him, and it shows that you’ve both got a common interest.
Use Three Emojis To Describe How You’re Feeling Right Now
It’s a total fact that everyone loves using emojis, even if many people won’t actually admit this. Emojis are fun, funny, and they help to showcase our emotions much easier than text can.
Asking your crush to describe how he feels right now in three emojis is actually a really fun way of starting a conversation. It gives him something fun to do, and the chances are that he’s actually going to sit down and have a good think about this one. The results will probably be hilarious and kinda cute too.
Ask Them A Random Question
This is another great tip on how to start a conversation with your crush. Random questions can be fun. You should start this text off by actually typing, “Random Question Time (RQT)”, before launching into your question.
The only rules are that the question has to be fun, unique, and interesting. Something along the lines of: “If you could choose to be animal, which animal would you be?”
Or how about: “If you could pick any actor to play you in a movie, who would you choose?”
Tell Him Your Weekend Was Probably Better Than His
If you’re looking to prick his interest, you could send him a text where you reckon that your weekend was better than his. This will immediately get him interested, and he’ll text back wanting to know more.
It’s essential that your weekend was awesome, though. If you reply and say that you watched Netflix all weekend, it’s going to be a pretty big comedown for him and he might not even text back after that. You’ve basically dangled a huge Christmas present before his eyes, so you need to make sure that it’s still awesome once unwrapped.
“You Look A Little Like…”
Telling a guy that he looks a little bit like a hot celebrity is a surefire way of paying him a ma-hoosive compliment, and letting him know that you dig him at the same time. It will make him feel good, and he’ll definitely respond to flattery.
This text is basically a better way of saying, “YOU’RE HOT”, and it can excite a conversation. Remember, though, that you have to choose a hottie who is universally acknowledged as a hottie, and not your 47-year old French tutor who only you think is debonair and charming.
You’re Going To A Party Tonight, And He HAS To Be There
So you’re going to this party tonight and it’s going to be so boring, and literally the only reason you’re going is because he’s going, and if he doesn’t go you’re going to be stuck in a nightmare for several hours.
After all, he makes everything fun, and he’s basically the only other cool person that’s been invited.
So you need to tell him this in a text early in the day to remind him that you want to see him tonight.
Tell Him That Something Made You Think Of Him
This is another good tip on how to start a conversation with your crush. So you were basically just listening to music, and all of a sudden, a song reminded you of him – so go and tell him!
This text can, of course, be a total lie, but it’s a great way to start a conversation with your crush. It could be anything that reminds you of him: A movie, a song, a painting, a TV show, even a walk in the park (memories of the time you hung out, not because he looks like a tree).
Just don’t ever say that your dad reminded you of him. He won’t dig that at all.
We Should Run Into Each Other More Often
If you accidentally bump into your crush outside college or work, you should use this as an opportunity to return home and text him saying that it was nice to bump into him – you should do it more often!
This is a fantastic way to start a conversation that hints you like-like him.
“You Were In My Dream!”
It’s normal for us to dream about our friends and family, but we don’t usually text our friends every time we’ve dreamt about them.
“Hey, Barry! You were in my dream last night! We were having a snowball fight!”
Barry is a friend of a friend who works in Human Resources, has anxiety and doesn’t care that he was in your dream last night.
See, we only really text our crushes to tell them they were in our dream. Even if he wasn’t in your dream, tell him anyway. It’s fun and makes him assume that you were doing something romantic in your subconscious.
Your Work Is Driving You Crazy … Can He Distract You
Whether you’re doing homework or office work, you need distracting – and he’s the only one interesting enough to do it.
This super-flirty text will make him feel wanted and you’ll have his attention immediately. It’s playful, and it could start a conversation that will last for hours.
