Well, if so, you’re definitely not alone, because one of the most common questions I get here on “Ask Kimberly” is how to talk to your crush. When it comes to talking to someone, a lot of the advice you are going to get is going to focus on what you can’t do, like ,“don’t be too cheesy, don’t be too aggressive, don’t be too weird”, and the list goes on and on and on. And that could leave you feeling really paralyzed. So, today, I’m going to give you five easy conversation starters, like opening lines, that can actually get the conversation going, between you and your crush. And trust me, guys, even the most shy person can use some of these. They’re that easy. I believe in you.

So, to celebrate that, I’m doing give-aways on each of my social media networks, so you’re going to want to make sure you’re following, so you don’t miss out on those. All right you guys, I know you can’t wait. Let’s get right into the video.
Number 1. “Oh my god, Mr. Anderson’s class was so dry, today.” So, all this one is, it’s so easy, is finding something that the both of you have in common and making comments about it, whether it was a class you just had, the bus ride to school, your teacher, the prom, just about anything. “I thought Miss Potato’s head was going to pop off when she was yelling at us.” Research shows that we’re more likely to actually like someone, if we feel we have something in common with them. If you have a crush, just finding some kind of common ground between the two of you is a really good place to start. So, a really simple little comment like this can lead to a bigger conversation, if the person is actually open to it. So, instead of saying something like “How is your day?”, which can feel a bit contrived and usually lead to a one word response, making an insightful comment about something you’ve experienced together is totally relatable and usually has a funny undertone.
Number 2. “What is the story behind this t shirt? You are always wearing it.” For this one, you’re just asking a question about something that other people might not have noticed before, but you’re doing it in a curious and lovable way. This one usually works best if you choose an article of clothing that they always wear and just ask them what the story is behind it. “I have to know what is the story behind this t shirt because you are always wearing it.” You can even say something funny like, “Everytime I see you, you’re literally wearing that shirt. So, to me, I just know you as the guy in the white t shirt, or the guy with the green shoes, or the girl with the pink backpack.” This can become a cute little nickname. This one is especially genius because it actually distances you from the person knowing that they’re your crush. Now they think that you know of them as “the guy in the white t shirt”. You see what I did there? Not only does this elevate your own perceived social value, but it’s a great way to learn about your crush and potentially hear a really great story.
Number 3. “That was a great presentation you just did today.” Now, this one is easy. It’s a compliment over something they have achieved. So whether that’s a presentation or scoring the winning goal of the game, you’re choosing something they did great and recognizing that you’ve acknowledged it. Now, guys, this a lot different from over-complimenting someone, which can go way overboard. “Oh my god, I love your shoes. Your hair looks so nice. Has anyone ever told you, you look like Zayn?” This is a premeditated compliment. It’s something that usually everyone knows that they’ve achieved. However, you can feel free to do it in a unique way. The way you set yourself apart is to point out something that no one else has noticed. “That presentation was actually amazing, and I could tell you practiced that speech”.
