1. Make the admission in person.
For one, you’re going to come off as really brave for doing so in person. To resort to text messages or phone calls would be seen as a weak move. In addition to that, you won’t have to worry about waiting for a reply if you make your admission in person. If you send it through text and your crush doesn’t reply right way, you are going to go crazy with anxiety. If you admit to your crush that you like them in person, then you have the opportunity to actually witness how they’re going to react to your admission.
2. Ask your crush out on a date immediately after your admission.
Don’t take the passive approach to romance. Immediately follow your admission up with a call to action. Show your crush that you are actually taking matters into your own hands and that you’re really putting yourself out there. Ask your crush out on a date and just hope for the best. This way, you are also giving your crush the opportunity to really tell you about where they stand in regards to the idea of possibly dating you.
3. Don’t pressure them to respond to you right away.
Give your crush some space. Don’t expect them to automatically be able to give you a response to your admission. Remember, the ball is in their court now. You’ve done your part and you are putting the pressure on them to respond to you. But you don’t want to overdo it with the pressure. You don’t want to suffocate them into making a decision. Remember they have to really think about their feelings for you as well.
4. Don’t get too caught up in everything that you did or said.
Just stop thinking about it. Whatever happens is going to happen and you’re just going to have to be okay with that. Regardless of whether you are going to get a date out of this, at least you tried. You won’t have to keep beating yourself up for not trying. You did well because you were brave and that should be enough for you.
5. Look forward to the great things that are about to happen to you.
If your crush agrees to go on a date with you, then great! That’s the best case scenario and you have plenty of things to be excited about. If no dates come from your admission, then that’s fine. You still have plenty of opportunities in the future to tell future crushes that you like them.
