Having a crush on someone can simultaneously be the best and the worst feeling in the world. While that jittery, butterflies-in-your-stomach warmth can make you feel giddy and happy, it can equally be the most nerve-racking thing ever. This is especially the case if you're trying to get the attention of your crush and you're feeling so nervous that you're not quite sure of what to say.
The first stage of a crush is the perfect time to find out more about the person you like, what their interests are, and whether you would be compatible — so it doesn't help that this crucial talking stage can sometimes feel so hard to navigate. What if you say the wrong thing? Or what if you can't think of anything to say but you desperately want to keep the conversation going?
We totally know what it's like, so to help you have the best conversations with your crush either over text or IRL, we've put together a list of questions you can use the next time you talk. From silly to informative, flirty to thought-provoking, here are 105 questions you can ask your crush.
