How to ask out your crush at school

If you ‘ ve ever watched just about any Disney classic, Prince Charming always manages to swoop in to save the day, and the prince and princess live happily ever after.

But IRL, sometimes the princess has to make the first move—even when it comes to asking her crush to the school dance. We get it, talking to your crush is hard enough, so asking them to the dance might sound impossible.

That said, we ‘ ve brainstormed a few ways to make your life a little easier. See what they are below:

Pass a Note

You ‘ ve seen this tactic in countless movies, and for good reason. A good ‘ ol note pass is a an easy way to make it cute and not worry about stuttering or getting nervous. But instead of doing a basic note, up the ante by making it more personal and even cheesy-cute. Are they into sports? Tape a note on the ball of their sport with the note. ” Will you go to the dance with me? We ‘ ll have a ball. ” If dorky isn ‘ t your vibe, keep it more lowkey and slip a note into their locker or pass it to them if you share a class.

Woo Them With Food

It ‘ s no secret that a way to anyone ‘ s heart is through their stomach, so use this to your advantage! Find out your crush ‘ s fave food—when in doubt, use pizza—and treat them to their ideal lunch. Inside the bag/box/wrapper, write, ” Will you go to the dance with me? ” Easy as pie, and they get free lunch out of it!

Create a Snapchat Filter

Okay, this one requires a little bit of planning and a little bit of cash, but if you ‘ re up for it, a custom Snapchat Geofilter is a super cute way to ask your crush. It costs about $5 for 20,000 square feet, so it won ‘ t break the bank. Create a custom Geofilter for your house that says something like, ” Will you go to the school dance with me? ” Then you can shoot them a private Snapchat, using your most flattering filter of course, of you looking super cute.

Keep It Simple

People can get so over-the-top asking people to dances that the build-up to pop the question can basically give you a heart-attack. Talk about pressure! Kick that anxiety to the curb by keeping things super simple and just… asking. You ‘ ll get to talk to your crush, make eye-contact, and hey, it could even jumpstart a relationship. Sometimes the simple things pack the most punch.

Get Creative With Candy

Posters are a standard way to ask someone to the dance, but you can totally kick this up a notch by using candy and gum in place of words! It shows off your creativity, and your crush gets a sweet snack out of it. Sounds like a win-win situation to us!

Tag Them in a Meme

Everyone knows that the closer you are with someone, the more memes you send and tag each other in. Create this intimacy with your crush early on by tagging them in a meme or photo that refers to asking someone to a school dance or even something super funny, and tag them with the caption ” would you go with me if I asked you like this? ” This starts the dialogue and you can then ask them from there.

Double Date

What ‘ s better than going to a school dance with your crush? If your bestie and your crush ‘ s bestie go together too! If your BFF is up for it, team up and ask them together. This takes a ton of the pressure off and they ‘ re more likely to say yes because their buddy will be by their side.

A Text Is an OK Backup Plan

Sure, asking in person is better. But if you can ‘ t seem to muster up the courage, a text can totally suffice. Just make sure to connect with them the next morning at school so they don ‘ t feel like you were playing a prank on them.

And while we ‘ re talking about crushes… we have a feeling THIS quiz can guess the zodiac sign of the person you fancy.

Greetings, lovebirds! The movie 2-States has given us a fair insight into how love reigns the B-School air. An MBA is the last time you would ever meet so many young people(read options) together in one place. Given the skewed gender ratio of B-schools, there’s a huge competition that prevails and like everything, more often than not its the first mover who gets the advantage here as well. If you’re pursuing an MBA already, or are prospective, read on to find how to ask your crush out.

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you are already hopelessly and madly in love (probably just infatuation) with a girl/ boy who is way out of your league. This is where I’d like to weigh in and put you out of your misery. Let me start off by telling you that there are no fool-proof ways of asking people out. While some people like straightforwardness, others might want you to work your way up to the point where you ask them out.

Now, for this article, I’m assuming that you have never spoken to the person you have a crush on and also haven’t been creepily stalking them for the past six months. Here are a few pointers to keep in mind before you embark on your quest to find true love in that stranger who looks voluptuously hot to you:

  • Hot people know they are hot, (B-Schools are no exception)– When you approach a hot girl, she mostly knows what’s going on in that filthy little head of yours. But that doesn’t mean that you spill it out in your first meeting. How to ask out your crush at schoolWell, that is precisely the reason why B-School Institute Parties are the best icebreakers when people in their half inebriated state muster the courage to compliment their longtime crush and whoa the response is, more often than not, positive; because “Hot people know they are hot”. So, unleash the lover inside you and make your first move. NOW.
  • Hot people don’t get hit on as much in a B-School as you’d think – Just as you’re too much of a chicken to ask them out, so are many others. It is because of this reason that you often see beautiful girls going out with average or below average looking guys. How to ask out your crush at schoolAbhilasha (name changed) who tops every guy’s crush-list in her B-School, on being questioned about how many times she’d got hit upon in the campus, said “Zero” with a sad face. Reverse psychology did its work well. Here’s where our second lesson comes to rescue: Hot people don’t get hit on as much in a B-School as you’d think”.
  • No matter what people say, you’re not a loser – The B-Schools system is designed around relative performance and grading. No matter how astute you are at things the place is bound to push you into self-loathing and doubt. But, wait! Self-doubt is dangerous. This is, in my opinion, the biggest inhibitor of your success in being able to effectively talk to people. Remind yourself that you have won the herculean battle of cracking B-School interviews. Remember that you are a Victor and not a Loser!How to ask out your crush at school

Now, coming to the point, here’s how you go about introducing yourself. What I do is that I usually crack a joke directed at one of my friends and if I see her laughing, I go and start talking to her, maybe build up on the joke. This way the ice is broken even before you talk to her and is also a safe bet if you’re too conscious to go and talk to her directly. Always keep the first interaction small, but say something intriguing that you can talk about in your next conversation with her/him like “Hey, I’m currently reading this fascinating book. I’ll let you know how it turns out.”

After that first conversation, it is very important to acknowledge their presence every time you see them. Just a friendly nod or a “Hi!” will do. After a couple of meetings, casually offer to have something to eat together. This is NOT a date, but it kind of conditions the other person to be comfortable with being with you alone. Soon you’re in their circle of trust. Now is the time you can be honest about liking him/her and see what they think about dating you. Even if they say they’re not interested, you made a new friend who might have other hot friends. You know what to do!

article was originally written by Pranav Walia. How to ask out your crush at schoolPranav is a freshman at IIM Lucknow. A fitness enthusiast at heart, he has been actively involved in powerlifting and taekwondo in the past. An ardent actor that he is, dramatics gives him a kick. He is a huge fan of Shahrukh Khan and wishes to share the big screen with him someday as his interest in acting grows.

If there’s a hottie in your class who you’ve been pinning to your Zoom screen all semester, it’s high time to shoot your shot. The process of asking out your Zoom crush can tricky, but gauging their interest in you isn’t impossible. Like everything else, school and dating have changed dramatically due to the pandemic. But one thing remains: those giddy feelings of exhilaration and anticipation that come with a new crush.

You may be wondering whether you should approach asking out this fine virtual classmate differently than you approached pre-pandemic crushes. In some ways, the answer is yes.

Now that some classes are virtual and you’re not going into a classroom every day, people can’t communicate interest in the subtle ways that worked before. You can’t really make prolonged eye-contact with your crush during a presentation. They can’t “coincidentally” choose the seat next to you every day.

“Unlike in-person encounters, where we are able to rely on important signals related to non-verbal cues and body language, we are relatively limited when a person moves from a three-dimensional being to a box on our computer screen,” Dr. Jess Carbino, a former sociologist for Bumble and Tinder, tells Elite Daily.

Plus, it’s easier to get the wrong impression of someone when they’re not physically in front of you IRL. “At school, you see people on their good days and their bad days,” Maria Avgitidis, dating expert, professional matchmaker, and CEO of Agape Match, tells Elite Daily. “You can learn their micro-behaviors and decide if this person is someone you enjoy being around.” Without that physical advantage, it’s easier to build someone up in your mind and then feel disappointed when they don’t meet your expectations offline.

Another challenge is figuring out how to actually ask out your Zoom crush, considering you’ve never met before. You can’t just peep a book on their desk and ask them what they’re reading. Or, you know, casually bump into the object of your daydreams at the library. Who knew they’d be there at approximately 6:30 p.m. (You did, because you overheard them talking on the phone on their way out of class.)

“All of this missing information even further diminishes our ability to elegantly make the first move, virtually,” Carbino says. “We instead must be more creative and try to use the digital tools available to usВ to transition fromВ crushВ to date.”

Carbino recommends using Zoom to gauge whether the interest may be mutual before making a move, especially since it’s the platform you’re already using for school. “I would recommend using the chat function to connect over something that may be of interest to the person,” she says.

For example, did your poli sci crush come up with a fire foreign affairs perspective? Did the hottie in your English class make an astute observation about the book you’re reading? Slide them a message along the lines of, “Great question. Was wondering the same thing and also was thinking that last week’s reading really touched on this subject, too. What do you think?”

By complimenting your Zoom crush and asking them a question, Carbino explains, you can build the kind of familiarity that can transition to texting, and eventually, a socially-distanced (or virtual) date.

“Alternatively, if you have their social media, slide into their DMs. It’ll tell them you are interested in them beyond school life,” suggests Avgitidis. “From there, start a conversation.” When it comes time to ask them out, she recommends saying something direct, like, “‘Would you like to go for a walk at the park tomorrow?’ They could reply with a yes, an alternative date, or just say no and now you’ll know what you need to know!” says Avgitidis.

And even if they do say yes and you schedule a safe, socially-distanced date for next week, be excited, but don’t forget that virtual vibes and IRL vibes can be really different. “You don’t have the physical interaction to determine if you really do like them,” says Avgitidis. “Keep your expectations grounded.”

Navigating dating in this digital-first world can be overwhelming and straight-up awkward. But don’t sweat it — you’ve got this! Whether it’s online or offline, approaching your crush with honesty, empathy, and respect is always the way to go.

If you go to school every day, you’re bound to meet someone you like and eventually develop crush. It’s normal, whether you’re in high school, university, or vocational school. You may even be a teacher who falls under the spell of another member of your team.

To get your crush to notice you or talk to you, you’ll need school pick-up lines that aren’t cheesy so that what you say won’t come off as weird or random. For this reason, we’ve prepared a list of pick-up lines that are tailored to school crushes, and anyone can use!

Here are 25+ of the best school pick-up lines for your crush:

School pick-up lines: for crushes in high school

If you’re in high school, then you’ve probably seen your crush around already and have been waiting for the right moment to approach him/her. You can use any of these high school pick-up lines to make your move:

01 “I heard you were in the school band. Maybe, we could make some music together.”

If you’re a “band geek,” as some people call it, that doesn’t mean that you can’t approach your crush. Even if you aren’t in the band, you could use this as a way to ask him/her to show you how to play an instrument so that you can spend some time together.

02 “I’ve seen you in AP Chemistry. I’ve kind of had my ion you.”

Sure, you may have already heard this pick-up line, but it’s a classic line that is sure to get a few chuckles and maybe even land you a date. Ions are talked about a lot in chemistry, and it’s a play on the words “eye on.”

03 “I know the first 20 digits of pi, but somehow, I don’t know yours.”

Here’s one for the mathletes and the ordinary math lovers who couldn’t come up with a way to talk to their crush in math class. Pi isn’t “3.14” like many teachers round it off, it’s infinite. In fact, we haven’t figured out all of the numbers yet.

Being able to memorize 20 of them is pretty impressive, and it shows that you’re pretty smart.

04 “We learned some pretty important dates in history class today, but I couldn’t help noticing that you aren’t a part of any of them.”

Anyone who studies history knows that you’ll have to memorize many dates because there are a lot of them to know.

This is a good way to ask for a date because when you say this line, he/she will probably ask what you mean. That’s when you can say something like, “our date, this Friday at 6 p.m.”

05 “No, don’t go in there! The sprinklers will go off.”

When you say this, you can use an alarming tone so that he/she stops and wonders what’s happening.

When this happens, you can say something like, “cause you’re smoking hot.” This will make him/her laugh, and you can start a conversation from there.

06 “I didn’t know angels go to [insert name of your high school].”

This is one of the school pick-up lines that you can use anytime that your crush is alone, whether in the gym, cafeteria, or hallway. It’s not dependent on a specific time or location.

When you use this line, you have to be very smooth about it. You can practice a little at home because you only have one shot to get it right. This is another way of telling your crush that he/she is gorgeous/handsome.

07 “I heard you’re pretty good at algebra. Could you replace my x without asking y?”

This is another math pick-up line to use because everyone has to do math. It can work really well. Your crush doesn’t even have to be the smartest kid in the class, as long as he/she takes algebra.

It’s a good line because it’s a play on x and y variables that are always used in algebra.

08 “You must be a high-test score because I’m dying to take you home to meet my mother.”

What do you do when you get a good report card? That’s right, you take it home to show your parents. It shows that you think highly of your crush, and your parents would approve of him/her.

09 “Oh, you’re the new kid? Welcome to [insert school name], I’m part of the welcoming committee.”

If your crush is new at school, but you don’t know how to approach him/her, this is a great way to do it. It doesn’t matter if you’re actually on the welcoming committee or if one even exists.

This is a great opportunity to show him/her around the school, ask him/her questions, and let him/her get to know you.

Puberty hits you. Your body is changing and you don’t think of boys as gross or rude anymore. You change those words with. attractive or maybe cute. Your heart starts to pound when he is across the room, hanging out with his bros while you’re sneaking a glance at him while chatting with your friends. Accurate? I guess so cause I’ve experienced it too.

Of course it’s a puppy love. A kind of intense love but at the same time is a shallow romantic attachment, typically happens when you were a child or an adolescent. And you’re experiencing it right now! Sometimes the feeling is unbearable and you want to show how you feel about him. There are a few hints and ways that you can give.

1. Say “hello” and wave to them

Say a simple “hi” or “hello” when you see him. Show that you notice his presence. No matter how nervous you feel, don’t forget to wave and smile. If you see him in the class or hall, you can say, Good morning! How’s it going?” This will help your crush notice and remember you.

2. Pass a note

When I was in middle school, passing notes was very popular especially when you’re gossipping and of course when you’re trying to sneak your crush a cute note. I remember vividly when I asked my friend to passed a note to my middle school crush. We sneak the note behind our teacher during class. My crush opened the note and smiled and glanced at me. Maybe he will come to you after the class and ask you for a date. Who knows? Also find out about: Signs You’ll Marry Your High School Sweetheart

3. Sit near them

Find an excuse and a right reason to sit near him at school. Maybe during lunch or class. You can come up to him and ask him is the sit is taken or not. Also find out about: Signs of a Bad Boyfriend in High School

4. Ask them about school project

This is a classic way to break the ice when your crush is in the same school especially in the same class. You can ask them to help you out in doing a homework or maybe ask them to join your group when you’re having a group project. Don’t forget to smile when you asked him and say thanks after they help you out. Also find out about: Reasons Why You Should Marry Your High School Sweetheart

5. Talk about something you have in common

You can look for common interest, hobbies, or practices through conversation, ask his friend, look at his social media bio or find it through his activities. Relate it with your interest. If you heard that he’s into music or books, maybe you can start the conversation by talking about the song or book that you recently read and discuss it with them.

Maybe you can tell them that you’re interested in looking for new books or songs recommendations and ask him what kind of music or book that he find interesting. Also find out about: Ways to Make a Guy Notice You in School

6. Compliment them

How to ask out your crush at school

Giving a sincere compliment after you crush achieve something is usual. But a compliment on regular things is superb. You can compliment on their personality, traits, skills, or even how they look that day. For example, “Wow. You’re good in playing guitar. Where did you learn it?”. But don’t give them too much compliments as it’ll feel not genuine and uncomfortable.

7. Laugh at their jokes

If your crush in popular with his witty humor, laughing at his jokes will be one of the best way to show that you’re interested in what he’s saying. It also shows that you have the same sense of humor. Some of my friends told me that they can only initiate conversation and form bond with people who laugh at their jokes. It applies to any relationship and of course in your case too! But don’t laugh at his failure, it is considered as humiliating rather than entertaining.

8. Dress up!

You’re still in the middle school so it’s better not to cake your face up with make up. Choose the best style that suits you. And of course, last but not least, the best thing a girl can put on her face is a genuine smile. Wear something cute, you don’t have to look sexy cause it’s way too much for your age. Maybe you can put on that cute floral dress and a little bit of hair accessory like head band. Don’t try too hard to impress him, though. Show him the best version of your look naturally.

9. Follow his media social accounts

Millennials.. it is common for you to approach someone through social media. Add his account so you can have a picture of what he usually does, who his friends are, or his hobbies and interests. Don’t only collect information from his social media, but contact him first! Discuss or ask about things he has mentioned in his account. He’ll notice that you pay attention to his posts.

10. A playful manner

Not in a perverted way, but in a playful manner. Touch his shoulder or upper hand when you joke around or when he talks. But please be gentle, you don’t want to hurt him or make him feel uncomfortable just because you’re getting over excited.

11. Confess your feelings

You have given your crush the hints that you like him and now it’s the last stage. You can tell him by saying that you think of him as more than a friend (saying ‘I like you’ directly might scare him). You can tell him in person, by text, by cards, or notes. Anything but friends.

Never let him know your feeling from the mouth of another person other than you. After telling him about your feeling, you can ask how he feels about you. But if you’re too shy or too afraid of rejection, you can look for hints that they might like you back. You can ask your friends or pay attention to how he treats you.

This is The Love Tips for You!

To guide you, here are some questions that you might ask to yourself. Maybe you’ll have the idea of reciprocation.

  • Does your crush initiate conversations sometimes? Or are you the one who start the conversations all the time?
  • Does your crush reply your text immediately?
  • How often does your crush text, call, or message you?
  • Does he show positive body language when he sees you?
  • Does he help you with small things without your request?
  • Does he remember small things that you’ve mentioned in the past?
  • Has he asked you about something personal?

In brief, if he likes you back, he’ll show his interest in your personal life. First or foremost, before you confess you feeling, make sure that you’re prepared to hear the result. Even if you’re rejected, it’s better to remain friends with him.

You got this.

How to ask out your crush at school

Have you been mooning over the Jim Halpert guy sitting in the cubicle over from you, or have you had your eye on that friend of a friend that comes around to your favorite bar? Instead of sitting on your hands and hoping that someday he’ll decode your silent “ask me out” stares, pull a modern-woman move and take the initiative!

But I get it, walking up to a guy and asking him out for a candlelit dinner can be hard. Intimidating. Downright terrifying. So how about we suit you up with a few moves, and see how it goes? Below are seven tips on how to ask out your crush – because it’s time!

1. Make It Casual

If you’re feeling intimidated about asking someone out on a bona fide date, don’t be. Instead, see it as grabbing drinks or checking out an event with a friend. You don’t need to ask him to join you to a romantic restaurant where you’ll be waiting for him with a heart-shaped box of chocolates. Rather, just casually ask if he wants to join you to try out Manhattans at a gin bar you’ve been curious to try, or if he’d like to keep you company at a blues bar you go to every weekend. If you treat it like asking a pal out with you, the pressure seems a little less all-encompassing.

2. Ask Offhandedly

The hype of asking someone out is the hardest part, so instead of drafting a battle plan in your bedroom like a general, aim to ask the person you have googly eyes over offhandedly. For example, use something along the lines of, “Are you hungry? There’s this great taco place I’m craving,” or “Man this has been a long day. Want to grab drinks after work?” When phrased that way, it’d be hard to say no. It just sounds so friendly!

3. Use Your Conversation To Set Up The Groundwork

Say you’re talking with your crush right now and are psyching yourself up to get enough courage to make the next move. Make things easier on yourself by moving the conversation in a direction that will open up an invite naturally. Ask him what he was up to last weekend, and then suggest something similar for this Friday. For example, if he went to a bar with his buddies, ask if he wants to try out beer flights at a micro brew pub, or if he spent it watching movies, invite him to that interesting indie theater in Uptown. It’ll seem natural, and not forced.

4. If You’re Really Nervous, Invite Him Out With Friends

Are you and your buddies going to a 90s dance party this weekend, or getting cheep beers at the neighborhood bar? If you feel like you can’t quite stomach asking him out on a one on one date yet, ask if he’d like to tag along. It’ll come across as if you’re just extending an invite for a fun Saturday night, and if he’d like to spend some more time getting to know you, chances are he’ll take you up on your offer. And your friends can act as a buffer against those awkward first date pauses and get the get-to-know-you questions out of the way.

5. Make Something Happen Right Here, Right Now

Are you talking to him right now? Come up with a craving and pretty much force him to tag along. Say you’d kill for a salted caramel ice cream and grab him by the hand and lead him to the nearest gelato place. Or if you’re in the near vicinity of an event or activity, spring that instead. Is there a book fair, a movie, a museum exhibit? Say it’s around the corner and that you two should check it out. It might be an ambush, but to him it’ll just sound fun.

6. Ask Him Out In Person

Girl, no, put down the phone. I know it’s a lot easier to quickly type out the question, scrounge your eyes closed, and hit send, but it’s so much easier to get a yes when you ask in person. Not only does it make you look like you’ve got George Clooney levels of confidence, but he won’t be able to take five minutes to carefully word an excuse to bow out. Instead he’ll just go with knee jerk instinct: Saying yes. Trust me on this one, it’s the way to go.

7. Act Excited About The Idea – It’ll Be Infectious

I know it could be hard, but don’t stutter out the question while wringing your hands and staring at the table. You acting nervous will make him nervous and you’ll just have anxiety bouncing between you like a ping pong ball. Instead, act super excited about the idea. Slap a big smile on your face, ask him with some oomph in your voice, and move your hands around like you just thought of a brilliant new plan for the weekend. Seeing you so excited about going out to get tacos or watch that new movie will make him feel like it really could be fun. Who doesn’t like going out and having a good time, right?

Sometimes a grand romantic gesture is necessary.

How to ask out your crush at school

When just receiving a phone call from someone these days can be seen as intimate, it’s hard not to assume romance is dead.

These 11 stories from real people will remind you that there is hope out there for humanity.

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you are already hopelessly and madly in love (probably just infatuation) with a girl/ boy who is way out of your league. This is where I’d like to weigh in and put you out of your misery. Let me start off by telling you that there are no fool-proof ways of asking people out. While some people like straightforwardness, others might want you to work your way up to the point where you ask them out.

Now, for this article, I’m assuming that you have never spoken to the person you have a crush on and also haven’t been creepily stalking them for the past six months. Here are a few pointers to keep in mind before you embark on your quest to find true love in that stranger who looks voluptuously hot to you:

  • Hot people know they are hot, (B-Schools are no exception)– When you approach a hot girl, she mostly knows what’s going on in that filthy little head of yours. But that doesn’t mean that you spill it out in your first meeting. How to ask out your crush at schoolWell, that is precisely the reason why B-School Institute Parties are the best icebreakers when people in their half inebriated state muster the courage to compliment their longtime crush and whoa the response is, more often than not, positive; because “Hot people know they are hot”. So, unleash the lover inside you and make your first move. NOW.
  • Hot people don’t get hit on as much in a B-School as you’d think – Just as you’re too much of a chicken to ask them out, so are many others. It is because of this reason that you often see beautiful girls going out with average or below average looking guys. How to ask out your crush at schoolAbhilasha (name changed) who tops every guy’s crush-list in her B-School, on being questioned about how many times she’d got hit upon in the campus, said “Zero” with a sad face. Reverse psychology did its work well. Here’s where our second lesson comes to rescue: Hot people don’t get hit on as much in a B-School as you’d think”.
  • No matter what people say, you’re not a loser – The B-Schools system is designed around relative performance and grading. No matter how astute you are at things the place is bound to push you into self-loathing and doubt. But, wait! Self-doubt is dangerous. This is, in my opinion, the biggest inhibitor of your success in being able to effectively talk to people. Remind yourself that you have won the herculean battle of cracking B-School interviews.

Now, coming to the point, here’s how you go about introducing yourself. What I do is that I usually crack a joke directed at one of my friends and if I see her laughing, I go and start talking to her, maybe build up on the joke. This way the ice is broken even before you talk to her and is also a safe bet if you’re too conscious to go and talk to her directly. Always keep the first interaction small, but say something intriguing that you can talk about in your next conversation with her/him like “Hey, I’m currently reading this fascinating book. I’ll let you know how it turns out.”

After that first conversation, it is very important to acknowledge their presence every time you see them. Just a friendly nod or a “Hi!” will do. After a couple of meetings, casually offer to have something to eat together. This is NOT a date, but it kind of conditions the other person to be comfortable with being with you alone. Soon you’re in their circle of trust. Now is the time you can be honest about liking him/her and see what they think about dating you. Even if they say they’re not interested, you made a new friend who might have other hot friends. You know what to do!
